Three Jewish voices to speak at Temple Beth-El
All are welcome to hear three incredible Jewish voices at Temple Beth-El on Wednesday, May 22.

An IDF soldier from Great Neck wounded during Israel’s Oct. 7 response, a Syrian-Jewish refugee leading Israel advocacy efforts at this critical time and a passionate humanitarian advocating for bringing home her cousin who is being held hostage in Gaza will speak at Temple Beth-El on Wednesday, May 22, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The community is welcome to attend this unforgettable event featuring Aaron, Abraham and Leat Corinne.

Aaron, an American Israeli from Great Neck, demonstrated remarkable courage and commitment to Israel’s safety when he was called back to duty for the Givati Special Forces in the IDF on Oct. 7.

The Tel Aviv–based CMO of Hyro, an AI startup in health tech, served in Gaza for 15 days before being shot several times by Hamas terrorists while defending the homeland on the front lines.

Abraham, a Syrian-Jewish refugee, husband, father of four and partner at the immigration-focused law firm Cohen, Tucker & Ades in New York, actively combats the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.

He sees this hostility as reminiscent of past injustices that led to the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Arab countries and Iran, and he’s determined to continue fighting back against all the hate.

Leat Corinne is using her voice for the voiceless. The passionate humanitarian activist has been dedicated to advocating for bringing home her 21-year-old Israeli cousin, Omer Shemtov, who was taken hostage in Gaza.

The event is free, but a suggested donation of $36 is required. Contributions made to Temple Beth-El through www.tinyurl.com/SpeakerEventTBE will go directly to the grass-roots organization Unit 10.7, which provides supplies and meals to IDF soldiers on the front lines.

A donation will also be made to Sheba Medical Center in honor of Aaron.

Unit 10.7 is comprised entirely of volunteers on a mission to make the greatest possible impact on those affected by the 10.7 tragedies, so 100 percent of donations benefit the recipients.

Its focus is bringing every IDF soldier the critical supplies they need to safeguard Israel. After units submit supply requests, the charity’s efficient delivery system—nicknamed by soldiers as “the Amazon Prime of Israel”—ensures that high-quality items reach the bases quickly.

The group has raised more than $300,000 and has delivered 37,000 items to 10,000 soldiers.
