Friends of the IDF would like to thank Intown Jewish Academy for inviting us to partner for their invited speaker David Nesenoff as he presented “To Catch an Antisemite: A Story of Humor, Danger, Spirituality, Media Bias and Cyber-Hatred.”
Over 50 people attended this exciting event at Chabad Intown on Tuesday, January 15 as Nesenoff shared his story when in 2010 he filmed White House Correspondent Helen Thomas stating that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine and go home [to] Poland and Germany."
In the weeks that followed, David was thrust into the limelight, and received tens of thousands of hate mail and death threats.
FIDF Atlanta Chairman Garry Sobel was invited to speak before Nesenoff to give an overview of FIDF and the programs and support we give to Israeli soldiers. He made a call to action for attendees to join us in support of the soldiers.
Rabbi David F. Nesenoff is a publisher/journalist and filmmaker. He was the intervention consultant for the United States Justice Department’s Civil Rights Monitors Office for the largest civil rights violation consent decree in U.S history, the Denny Restaurant case. In addition to David having been the publisher of a newspaper in New York and in Jerusalem, he recently authored a book with a collection of his satirical commentary, “David’s Harp".
