Alabama-Israel Task Force (AITF) - Remembering Our Past, Shaping Our Future

Alabama Celebrates Israel Statewide Gathering - Brief Record of the Evening

What: Honoring 70 years of unwavering support since the historic 1943 Joint Resolution from Alabama calling for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Israel. Seven decades ago (1943), in the midst of World War II, Alabama led the nation in a formal call for the establishment of the Jewish state and homeland. The unanimous joint resolution passed both state houses five years before Israel was reborn as a nation. We join together for a special state-wide celebration of this historic moment, while expressing our continued friendship with the state of Israel, and launching the first initiative of the Alabama-Israel Task Force (AITF) - establishing an Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response Center in Israel. We gather during the biblical season of Purim (book of Esther), an account reminding us of hostile times and intentions, and our calling to respond in "such a time as this!"
