Guest Speaker Olga Meshoe Washington with Event Sponsor Drew Fromkin
Washington, a South African Christian, serves as the CEO of Defend Embrace Invest (in) Support Israel (DEISI) and is the National Director for Programming and Engagement at Club Z. Her keynote address focused on the importance of being a vocal advocate for Israel and how she encourages those who support Israel to amplify their voices within their communities.
“At Club Z, we challenge our young people, our Jewish young people, to be proud of who they are,” Washington said during an exclusive VIP Meet & Greet for Jewish National Fund-USA partners (donors) giving $5,000 or more to the current campaign. “There is no reason to apologize for being Jewish, to apologize for the State of Israel, when you understand who the Jewish people are and what they mean for the world.”
