On Monday December 16, 2013, The Israel Forever Foundation will be hosting their first New York City Young Professionals “Meet & Greet” featuring Captain Barak Raz (Res.), the immediate former IDF Spokesperson of the Judea Samaria Division, focusing on "A Personal Reflection: Engaging Diaspora Jews as IDF Spokesman examining The Israel-Palestinian Conflict".

In pursuit of a common mission to educate and inspire understanding and respect for Israel while fostering a personal connection for Jews around the world, is co-sponsoring the event; it is also supported by BBYO, StandwithUs, Likud, Tzofim and one of The Israel Forever Foundation’s strongest programs, The Lone Soldier Project.

A native New Yorker from Queens, Captain (Res.) Raz served seven years in the IDF, where he implemented a proactive strategic communications policy, serving as strategic advisor to the division's commander (Major General Nitsan Alon, Brigadier General Hagai Mordechai, and most recently Brigadier General Tamir Yadaie) and partaking in strategic and tactical planning for the division, its brigades, and its specialized units.

In his role as Spokesperson, he was responsible for all media and public diplomacy efforts of the division, working with organizations and individuals from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and around the world, including government officials, media, NGOs, human rights organizations, civic organizations, and more.

Through his efforts, he was able to influence personal opinion of people all over the world to help them see the positive and productive efforts for peace and security that Israel continuously struggles to achieve.

The Israel Forever Foundation creates programs and initiatives designed to enhance the levels of Israel engagement among supporters and advocates living in the Jewish diaspora.“We are thrilled to be branching out and bringing Israel Forever to New York City! Our events are specifically designed to bring people together who want to learn more, share their passion and develop a personal connection to Israel.” said Ariana Heideman, the Director of Special Events for The Israel Forever Foundation.
