Arieh King, Director and Founder of the Israel Land Fund (ILF), will speak at Temple Emanu-El on Miami Beach.
Mr. King developed the idea for the Fund over the course of ten years of working in the east Jerusalem area. In October 2018, Mr. King was elected to his second term on the Jerusalem City Council, where he works tirelessly for the rights of Jews to live and travel with equal treatment in every part of the holy city.
Arieh works to strengthen the Jewish presence in eastern Jerusalem, where roughly 200,000 Jews live alongside approximately 230,000 Arabs. These efforts include increasing security, adding bus lines to ease transportation for Jews, and an initiative to limit the Muslim muezzin prayer call. #30
Temple Emanu-El is located at 170 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. For more information, call (305) 538-2503 ext. 221

The primary vision of the JTP is to provide Jewish tennis players an exclusive professional program to achieve a top world competitive level. Our vision combines high quality education with a deep connection to Jewish culture and Israel.*
The JTP’s team decided that there is no better way to launch the JTP than to honor two of the greatest Israeli tennis legends, Shahar Peer and Shlomo Glickstein. Shahar and Shlomo are the perfect examples of what we strive for with our elite platform. They are a true representative of the organization visions and values.
