Danny Ayalon Speaks at American Friends of Sheba Brunch at New Yorks Harmonie Club

September 23, 2012

Attorney Mark Langfan and American Friends of Sheba hosted an important brunch presentation by Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Sunday, September 23rd came at New York's Harmonie Club. Mr. Ayalon spoke about Israel at a critical junction. Attended by more than 120, the Sheba brunch event was an opportunity to present a clear definition of the challenges facing Israel today and in the future.

Mr. Ayalon and Mr. Langfan are both articulate advocates for Israel – and for the Sheba Medical Center. The main theme of the morning was to present powerful facts to answer the ongoing skepticism regarding Israel’s importance to civilized world.

Sheba is Israel’s national hospital, and as Vice Minister Ayalon stated, the fate of Israel and Sheba are one. We at American Friends of Sheba take on the great responsibility of assuring that this great medical center remains at the forefront of excellence for the people of Israel.  We like to say, “the faces of Sheba are the faces of Israel”.  

Mark Langfan’s thought-provoking presentation demonstrated with maps and facts Israel’s perilous state and by inference the need for a more robust approach by all of us. We extend a very special thank you to Mark and his Father, William, for graciously providing the venue for the Sheba Brunch for Danny Ayalon.

This brunch is part of an ongoing series planned by American Friends of Sheba to provide a resource for donors to learn about issues that impact on Israel. Future brunches will be announced.
