Dr. Paul and Drora Brody will receive the Rachel Imeinu Bonei Israel Award.
The Brody family has a special connection with Kever Rochel. In the summer of 2003, Tali and Liat, "twinned" their Bat Mitzvah celebrations at Kever Rochel in an emotional and moving ceremony with Iska Lieberman and Yehudit Kahane (and their entire class from Itamar), whose respective parents, Hillel Lieberman HYD, and Binyomin and Tali Kahane HYD, as well as grandfather Rabbi Meir Kahane HYD, were brutally slain by terrorists. From chairing the Israel Day Concert, to bringing dignitaries to Israel they are building and presenting a proud image of a vibrant established country. Paul is our liaison to the Jewish Media making sure our Rallies and Events receive the proper recognition and publicity they deserve. With Drora always supportive, Israel is literally the focus of their lives.
The Rachel Imeinu Actualist Awardee is Esther Sarah Shleifstein whose dream to have her Bas Mitzvah in Kever Rachel was a very successful event. She will be introduced by Vivian Singer president of the Sisterhood of Manhattan Beach and a tireless activist in her own right.
Rachel Imeinu Young Leadership Awardee is Tiferet Levi who unites young groups for shiduchim and leadership activities.
Michael Chenkin will receive The Breaking the Silence Award for his spreading the truth by mouth and foot, distributing fliers in front of shuls as well as populated Jewish areas, alerting fellow Jews about our Rallies in support of Israel and against the Iran Deal. Many Chareidim who otherwise would not have shown up because they don't go on the internet, came because of Michael Chenkin's efforts.
