Jewish National Conference coming to Cincinnati

Cincinnati will play host to one of the country's largest conferences about the Jewish State of Israel.

Organizers say the September conference will draw people from all over the United States and parts of the world, including Israel, who will be treated to high-level briefings on "Freedom and Democracy: Israel's and America's Shared Values"; "JNF's 9/11 Memorial in Jerusalem: Commemorating 10 Years Since 9/11"; "Turmoil in the Middle East: What it Means and What are the Implications".

Expected speakers include: Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner, Israel Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren, Israeli Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Yaalon, Wall Street Journal Foreign Affairs Columnist Bret Stephens; and Jewish Educator Arna Poupko Fisher. TV superstar Larry King will receive a special award at Sunday night's Tree of Life gala.

The free and open to the public conference will take place from September 18th-19th, and will be held at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Local activists Nina and Eddie Paul will be given the Tree of Life award at a dinner during the conference which marks the first time this major dinner has ever been held at a National Conference.
