Israel Huge Priority Among Hispanic Evangelicals and Jews in 2016 Elections

Posted on

The Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition is inviting concerned voters to an event featuring leaders of some of the most important voter blocs in the 2016 election.

Speakers—including Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Mario Bramnick, President of the Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition, Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and Shimon Mercer-Wood, Consul for Media Affairs for the Consulate General of Israel in New York, will explain the importance of Israel to the influential Hispanic Evangelical demographic as they cast their votes in this election year.

The event will take place at the Hampton Inn Manhattan/United Nations on March 10 at 2:45 p.m. The hotel is located at 231 East 43rd Street in New York.

HICL is an arm of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the largest International Latino Christian organization in America and in the world, with millions of Hispanic Evangelicals.  The group's vision is to engage the Latino Christians—the fastest growing ethnic and faith demographic in America and the western hemisphere—in the pro-Israel movement.

HILC is building a firewall against anti-Semitism and the Campaign to Delegitimize the Nation of Israel, raise awareness of the critical intersection of Israel and America's future, and activate Hispanics as the most "Pro Israel, Pro Jewish" demographic.

HILC is also hosting two events open to the press on March 10: the Hispanic Pastors and Jewish Leadership breakfast at 9 a.m. with Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Consul General of Israel in New York at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, 220 East 42nd Street, New York; and Night to Celebrate Israel at 7 p.m. with Rodriguez, Deputy Consul General Amir Sagie, Robert Stearns, Hoenlein, Susan Michael and Bramnick at El Rey Jesus Nueva York/King Jesus Ministry New York at 48-02 25th Avenue, Astoria, NY 10013.
