On Tuesday, September 4, 2018, we are pleased to have as our honored guest Rabbi Yaakov Menken. Rabbi Menken’s organization, The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), is the largest Rabbinic Public Policy organization in America, articulating and advocating for public policy positions based upon traditional Jewish thought. They lead the fight against those who cloak their own secular, left-wing ideals in the mantle of “Judaism,” misrepresenting Judaism’s actual beliefs and values.
Rabbi Menken’s presentation will clearly show how Biblical values are the nurturing roots of first-world civilizations, and also recognize the efforts of the American pioneers who gave expression to those ideals in the founding documents of the United States. The CJV promotes these same values today, through education, advocacy, and mobilization of support within the Jewish conservative community, especially the rapidly growing Orthodox segment.
“The CJV is keenly sensitive to our people’s history. We understand that the scourge of anti-Semitism hides behind many facades, and recognize it in the contemporary anti-Israel movement. We appreciate the friendship displayed by pro-Israel conservative groups towards the Jewish People, rather than regarding it with unjustified suspicion.”
Please join us on Tuesday, September 4thfor a presentation unlike any you have heard in the past. Having personally met Rabbi Menken, I can assure you this will be an evening of enlightenment. You will walk away with a much better understanding of an issue so critical in today’s society.
