Int’l delegations converge on Friends of Zion museum

The Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem hosted two major international delegations at its Jerusalem campus last week, including senior Jewish leaders from North America and a group of diplomats and serving ambassadors.

More than 100 leaders from the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations’ 53 member organizations visited the museum, which is dedicated to telling the story of non- Jews who lent their help and support to the Jewish people and the establishment of the State of Israel over the past 200 years.

Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents, was awarded the John Patterson Leadership Award, an exact replica of the flag of the Jewish Legion, which was a unit of five battalions of Jewish volunteers created within the British Army to fight the Ottoman Empire during World War I.
