Jerusalem U presents a powerful new Israel video about Jewish pride, Jewish belonging and Jewish beliefs from African-American poet Chloé Valdary: a leading new voice in the pro-Israel movement, a former Tikvah fellow at the Wall Street Journal, and one of Algemeiner’s top 100 people positively affecting Jewish life today.
This is what it means to be an indigenous people – belonging and surviving.
Chloe discusses what Israel means and has meant throughout the history of the Jewish people. We are an indigenous people – and here is what it means to people at the Western Wall praying, to people with auschwitz tattoos, to people that have fought with every fiber of their beings for the zionist movement. With her Israel poetry, she eloquently describes the significance of the Jewish homeland.
Chloé is the Director of Partnerships and Outreach at Jerusalem U.
