The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) strongly thanks and praises Leader Kevin McCarthy for his powerful statement condemning antisemitism at UC Berkeley Law School, where 14 student groups are not allowing anyone to speak who merely supports Israel’s right to exist.
ZOA is honoring Leader Kevin McCarthy at our national Gala this Sunday evening, November 13 in NYC at Pier 60. He will receive the Dr. Miri & Sheldon G. Adelson Award for Defense of Israel, presented to him by Dr. Miri Adelson. Other honorees include President Donald Trump, who will receive the Theodor Herzl Award; Jason Greenblatt, one of the architects of the Abraham Accords, who will receive the Dr. Bob Shillman Award presented by Prof. Alan Dershowitz; Israeli General Amir Avivi, who will receive the Myron Zimmerman Award; Ali Meli, who will receive the Steven Sass Award; and Joseph Lubeck, receiving the Louis D. Brandeis Award. ZOA National President Morton A. Klein will also be giving remarks after being introduced by Dr. Kiron Skinner, former Director of Policy Planning at the U.S. State Department.
David I. Schoen, Chairman of the ZOA National Board, will serve as emcee.
