With the Palestinian Authority preparing to ask for statehood from the United Nations, members of the group and experts in a panel discussion talked about the need to support Israel.

“We are living in a pivotal moment of history, where strong forces beyond Israel’s control are coursing through the Middle East,” said Stacy Rotner, a chair of the event. “We are the next generation of pro-Israel activists. Israel needs friends and advocates.”
