Shalom TV to Feature Interviews and a Panel Discussion about the America-Israel Friendship League’s Efforts
New York, January 12, 2012… Kenneth J. Bialkin, chairman of the America-Israel Friendship League (AIFL) will be the featured guest of Mark S. Golub on Shalom TV, North America’s Jewish Television Network, in an interview which will be available, on demand, from Sun., January 15, through Saturday evening, February 11. It is currently available on Shalom TV’s website, which can be accessed at www.shalomtv.com.
The program features segments with several leaders who know about and value AIFL’s mission, which is to build close bonds of friendship and affection between the people of the United States and Israel. Working with individuals and common-interest groups in both countries.
With its special grassroots focus, AIFL brings Americans of all creeds and ethnicities to Israel, and Israelis—Jews, Christians, and Muslims—to the United States to participate in an experience that has repeatedly proven to transform lives and perceptions.
In several of its recent programs, AIFL celebrated Israel as a start-up nation not only economically but also in the fields of medicine, science, high-technology, cultural arts, and humanitarian services.
In a separate program which will also run next week, Shalom TV will air a panel discussion focused on determining why, despite all Israel’s efforts and tremendous achievements for its own citizens as well as the world, the Jewish state is still bedeviled at the UN and threatened with boycotts and divestment.
The panel discussion, which was conducted as part of AIFL’s recent dinner, features, as moderator, AIFL supporter Jonathan Medved, a co-founder and CEO of Vringo, a leading provider of software platforms for mobile social and video applications.
The rest of the panel includes former Israeli UN Ambassador Dan Gillerman, who serves as AIFL Israel’s chairman of the board; Dan Senor, co-author of the international best-seller Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle; and former NYC Mayor Ed Koch.
To access these programs, Cable subscribers should go to www.shalomtv.com and click on “Find Us” on the menu bar to determine on which channel Shalom TV appears on the local system. The AIFL programs will be in the category “News and Israel.”
Currently, the programs are also available on the Shalom TV website home page, archived under “Watch Complete Programs” in the category “News.”
