Israeli Emissary, Maia Morag presents:
"Israeli Impact and The Dishonesty of Divestment"
Israeli Impact and the Dishonesty of Divestment

Driving Directions

Cincinnati's Emissary from Israel, Maia Morag, will discuss Israel's global accomplishments and global impact.  She will also discuss the current divestment movement and the dishonesty - and impossibility of it.  Most major pharma companies, a significant number of technology firms, and a growing number of international firms have a large presence in Israel.  

Divesting from Israel would mean no cell phones, no internet search engines, no back-up cameras in autos, fewer generic drugs, fewer snack foods, fewer green energy options (pioneer in solar,  wind, and biodiesel), less effective electric cars, flash memory (including usb).  Medical findings for spine victims, SIDS/crib risks, and hands-free nursing would also be gone. Military achievements in helicopters and ballistic defense, used by the USA, would also be prohibited under this approach.

Israel's global impact is positive and constructive. 
Speaker Bio 

Maia Morag is the community shlicha (emissary) of the Israel Center of Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, funded by The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati. Morag arrived in Cincinnati in September 2014, after being trained by the Jewish Agency for Israel, and is primarily responsible for strengthening the unique and multi-faceted significance of Israel in the local Cincinnati Jewish community by connecting the next generation of Jewish people to Israel's people and homeland through education and advocacy.

Maia works closely with the rabbis and educators of the region's synagogues and day schools, the Mayerson JCC, Camp Livingston, the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, the Jewish Community Relations Council and local Zionist organizations. She serves as a resource and an official representative of Israel on behalf of the Jewish Agency for Israel.
