Dr. Joseph Frager discussed the multi-faceted message behind the concert. “The land of Israel is eternally belongs to the Jewish people, it is given to us by God through the bible and through Moses.”
He stressed that the Land of Israel, especially Judea and Samaria, the “heartland of Israel,” belong to the Jewish people, and despite being forced to leave it several times, “we are not leaving it ever again.”
“We are particularly happy that we have almost a million of our brethren in the heartland of Israel. In Judea and Samaria, and Jerusalem of course, in Hevron, in the Jordan valley and Golan heights,” said Dr. Frager.
Concert Chair Dr. Paul Brody, who together with his wife, Drora, coined the term "The Concert with a Message,” explained that the Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions (BDS) Movement as it is “infesting” across American college campuses.
“We have an extra special mission now to counter the BDS… It is very challenging we have had many rallies against BDS and it is becoming more difficult,” said Dr. Brody.
