LOS ANGELES — Following the October 18, 2016 decision by UNESCO that denies the ancient Jewish ties to the Kotel and other Jewish holy sites, the Israeli-American Council (IAC) announced today that its 2017 Celebrate Israel Festival will prominently feature the historic connection of the Jewish people to its holiest city and spiritual center, Jerusalem.
The Celebrate Israel Festival—a nationwide event that brings together more than 50,000 people in the Diaspora’s largest celebration of the Jewish State in major metropolitan areas across the country—will take place during the months of May and June.
“UNESCO’s resolution is completely divorced from reality, denying the 4,000-year connection between the Jewish people and our capital in Jerusalem,” said IAC CEO Shoham Nicolet. “In the face of the lies supported by institutions like UNESCO, the Israeli- American Council will continue to safeguard the truth. We are proud that this year’s Celebrate Israel Festival will not only celebrate Israel’s 69th year of independence, but will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification. In doing so, we will highlight the unbroken and unbreakable bond between the Jewish people and the City of Jerusalem, delivering this message to tens of thousands of Americans, elected officials, and foreign diplomats working in the U.S.”
About the IAC: Headquartered in Los Angeles, the IAC is committed to building an engaged and united Israeli-American community that strengthens our next generations, the American Jewish community, and the State of Israel. The IAC strives to achieve these goals through programs and events for all ages – and by empowering and supporting a wide array of non-profit organizations within the Israeli-American community.
