JNF hears Mideast expert in Hewlett


Jewish National Fund hosted a breakfast at Hewlett East Rockaway Jewish Centre on Sunday featuring Micah Halpern, an expert on terrorism, the Middle East, and Muslim fundamentalism. Halpern is a featured contributing terrorism analyst on USA Radio Network and CBS, has been invited for consultations in the White House with terror analysts and has addressed conferences at the Justice Department.

More than 50 people came to hear Halpern speak about the American political system as it relates to the Middle East, and the impact JNF has had on the land and people of Israel. The event showcased JNF’s activities in Israel and urged support for the purchase of new firefighting equipment for Israel’s Fire and Rescue Services.
