Central America is showing its support for the nation of Israel through a new forum to be held today.
The President of Guatemala, Dr. Alejandro Giammattei, will join political leaders from Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and the Dominican Republic, along with Texas governor Greg Abott and Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York for the Central American Forum for Israel.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place at noon CST on Thursday, July 29. Those who’d like to attend can register here.
This event comes after continuous anti-semitism against Jewish people and their communities, including the most recent example with Ben & Jerry’s refusal to sell their products in Israel.
According to Fox Business, the corporate Ben & Jerry’s came to their decision based on their belief that Israel is”occupied Palestinian Territory,” and that it’s “inconsistent with our values.”
“Speeches and sessions at the event will discuss future actions to strengthen economic, political, and cultural relations, as well as cooperation and humanitarian aid between Central American countries and Israel. The event will also focus on a common commitment to fight against antisemitism and will include a presentation of a formal statement on antisemitism by Chairman of the Center for Jewish Impact, Robert Singer,” read a press release for the event.
As a reminder, make sure to register here, before noon CST.
