Hillary Clinton Will Bring 'Trust' Back to US-Israel Ties, Women Leaders Say Featured

Remarks came in panel about Golda Meir, at the Limmud FSU Conference in Parsippany, NJ

PARSIPANNY, N.J., The U.S.-Israel relationship will improve if Hillary Clinton is elected president, participants at a panel on women leaders said today at Limmud FSU New York, which drew more than 1,000 Russian-speaking Jews from around the country.

In answer to a question, Susan Stern, a longtime supporter of Hillary Clinton and major leader in the New York and national Jewish communities, predicted that Clinton will foster an “atmosphere of trust” between the two countries and between the White House and Israeli leadership. If Clinton “becomes president, there may be disagreement about tactics, but there will be always a clear understanding that the United States will have Israel’s back,” Stern said.

Collette Avital, a former Israeli Consul-General and Knesset member and now chair of the Center of Organizations of Holocaust Survivors in Israel, who also joined the panel, said she believes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “would like to mend fences” with the next U.S. administration and, “having followed Hillary’s career, I think she will do likewise. There will be less an atmosphere of antagonism and competition. Relations will be much more relaxed than they are now.”

Avital and Stern made the remarks during a closing panel, “Where Are All the Women Leaders,” which was moderated by Limmud FSU Co-Founder Sandra Cahn, and which looked at the shortage of women political leaders in the years since Golda Meir served as Israel’s first -- and only -- woman prime minister. The panel accompanied a special exhibit on the life and impact of Golda. Also participating in the panel were Lori Palatnik, founding director of the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project, and Diane Wohl, a philanthropist and Limmud FSU board member.

The sold-out Limmud FSU New York, which took place at the Sheraton Parsippany, N.J., featured dozens of sessions on the arts, politics, Jewish culture and more. According to event organizers Limmud FSU Founder and Co-Founder Chaim Chesler and Cahn; this Limmud FSU drew the youngest crowd in the organization’s history and exemplified a focus on engaging the next generation of Russian-speaking Jews worldwide. Also helping organize the event was Executive Director Roman Kogan.
