Please mark your calendars and join me as we welcome Hen Mazzig on November 7th at 7:30pm at www.ramatshalom.org.

If you care about Israel, if you want to learn more about Israel, if you have a teenager you want to connect to Israel, if you have a student on a college campus, if you are concerned about the rise in anti-Semitism, if you stand up against racism, homophobia and other social injustice…you must meet Hen!

Hen Mazzig is a young, energetic Israeli who is considered one of the most important Jewish influencers. His award-winning articles have been published in prominent international magazines and newspapers. Hen is very active on social media, with thousands of followers on Twitter and tens of thousands on other social media platforms.

Hen served in the Israeli Defense Forces for almost five years as an openly gay commander. During his service, he worked as an intermediary between the IDF, the Palestinian Authority, the UN and the many non-governmental organizations that work in the West Bank.

Today, Hen volunteers as the head of the Transgender and Health Department at the National Israeli LGBTQ Task Force in Tel Aviv.

Hen uses his knowledge, experience and personal story to combat anti-Semitism and hate. As a strong pro-Israel advocate, Hen stands up regularly to those who seek to delegitimize the Jewish State. He has become the leading Israeli voice reclaiming intersectionality and progressive Zionism.

Hen is a proud Mizrahi Jew and draws on his family’s roots in Iraq and North Africa and the story of 850,000 Jewish refugees from Arab countries to teach his global audience about the diversity of the Jewish people and Israel.

Hen has a proven track record of creating dialogue and changing hearts and minds not simply by sharing the truth about Israel and the history of the region, but by being a force for justice for diverse groups and peoples. He is a unique voice in a divisive day and age, one that can unite people for a common cause rather than sowing discord over clashing narratives.

I look forward to introducing you to Hen on November 7.
