 SAVE THE DATE - GUSH KATIF MUSEUM DINNER -
SATURDAY,, MARCH 9, 2013, 8:30 P.M. - 
GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE, KEYNOTE SPEAKER
RAZAG BALLROOM - 739 East New York Avenue, Bklyn.NY
  
    The terrible tragedy of the expulsion of the 10,000 Jews from 21 flourishing Gush Katif communities is one that can never be rectified. Today we hear from many corners that it was a mistake, and those who voted for the expulsion, or advocated it in so many ways, now regret their actions.They must know that the expulsion itself was a nightmare, and set off a chain of events that is being felt to this day. The debate on the Edmond Levy report, and the Application of Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, is an outcome of the Gush Katif expulsion. 
      It is hoped that today's election in Israel, where PM Benjamin Netanyahu once again emerges as the leader of the largest party, Likud, with many of our strong right wing friends in the Likud, will form a coalition with HaBayit HaYehudi, Otzma L'Yisrael,  and other right wing parties, putting an end to any further demolition of Jewish homes. Rather, we look forward to the announced Jewish construction in E1 and throughout Israel.
     Thanks to the initiative of Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo, the Gush Katif museum was built in Jerusalem in order to preserve the memory of Jewish entitlement and history in Gaza, the amazing growth and productivity of the 21 flowering communities in Gush Katif, and then the painful events of the expulsion and the aftermath, which continues to today. 
     Last year,  2012, the first annual dinner for the Museum was held, with keynote speakers, John Bolton and Glenn Beck. The Razag Ballroom was the venue then, as it will be again. The crowd was standing room only at the event, and it is hoped that the response will be the same this time. Please call AFSI: 212-828-2424; afsi@rcn.com, for further information.
