For 25 years, I focused my energy and attention primarily towards promoting Jewish culture and supporting Israel. During the Second Intifada, I served honorably in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). I risked my life to protect Israel.
This year, I have decided to redirect and refocus my attention towards supporting African American causes and helping to empower black people worldwide. I am taking a stand for civil rights and human rights for black Americans.
Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, I decided to join the new Civil Rights Movement in the United States. First, I joined the human rights organization known as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) which is the leading civil rights organization in America.
I also made a financial donation to an organization known as 100 Black Men Inc. which mentors and empowers young African Americans to prepare them for college education.
In the past, I was a member of the World Jewish Congress (WJC). I also donated to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and American Friends of the Likud. I used my financial resources to promote Jewish communities and Israeli causes.
Moreover, I visited Jewish communities in 11 countries. While visiting Jewish communities, I demonstrated my support for Jewish history, Jewish tradition, and Holocaust education. However, I pledge to do more to support African American interests.
For the rest of my life, I will stand firm for African American values and black interests. I stand with Vice President Kamala Harris in support of black civil rights. During law school at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, Vice President Harris was president of the Black Law Students Association. I attended the same law school as Harris. Moreover, Harris attended Howard University which is a historically black university in Washington DC.
As an African American convert to Judaism, I will create a spark of hope in African American communities. This spark of hope will become a great flame of socio-economic uplift and financial empowerment for oppressed black people worldwide.
In addition to “Jewish Power”, I also support “Black Power”. I am the combination of “Jewish Power” and “Black Power” while being rooted in black history and Jewish history. I am a combination of Dr. Martin Luther King and Anne Frank.
By standing together, blacks and Jews do not stand alone. We must support “Black Lives Matter” and “Jewish Lives Matter.”
