I am so honored to be given the "Queen Esther Award for Jewish Heroism" by the Creative Zionist Coalition, a newly formed, fiercely passionate Zionist organization. This very special event takes place on February 24, 2013 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Los Angeles. What make this event historic is that the Shangri-La Hotel is Muslim-owned and the site of a grotesque, anti-semitic incident.
Two years ago, a number of twenty- and thirty-something Jews planned to raise money to send children of fallen IDF soldiers to camp with a charity event at the Hotel Shangri-La in Santa Monica, California.
