Pro-Israel Latin-Americans Visit Israel


Pro-Israel activists from Latin-American countries visited Israel as part of the World Zionist Organization's Leadership Training Seminar from Latin America.
 
Rolo Weiner, Head of the Spanish Desk at the WZO's Department for Diaspora Activities led the fourteen participants on a special tour of Jerusalem. The participants also learned techniques for increasing a positive sense of Jewish identity. 
 
Commenting on the program to Arutz Sheva news, Eitan Ori Behar, the director of the WZO's Center for Diaspora Communications & Countering Antisemitism, stated, "the tour ended at the Western Wall with a reading of the letter Yonatan Netanyahu wrote before embarking on Operation Entebbe." Behar said that participants could continue to monitor events affecting the Jewish community on their iZionist website.
