Shimon Erem was a hero and friend to Jews and Christians around the world, and a never-to-be-forgotten example of faith in action. He played a pivotal role in the founding and survival of the State of Israel, commanding troops in Israel’s War of Independence, the Sinai crisis, the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War.
Gen. Erem spent the last 35 years of his time on this earth building bridges between Jews and Christians in support of the Land and People of Israel. In 2002, he founded the Israel Christian Nexus to mobilize the Christian and Jewish communities in support of Israel and the Jewish people, and in defense of our shared Judeo-Christian values. He battled valiantly to raise awareness of the threat to Christians and Jews – the Bible people, as he called us – from the radical Islamists.
He also spent many years in active leadership of such organizations as B’nai Brith, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Zionist Oranization of America (ZOA), Americans for a Safe Israel, The Council of Israeli Oranizations, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). He was an honorary board member of the Israeli Leadership Council (ILC).
The Shloshim event will be a time to remember a great friend and leader, and commit to carrying on his work. It was Gen. Erem’s wish that the work of the Nexus continue after his time with us was gone.
While all who wish to attend are welcome, we would greatly appreciate RSVPs by email (email@example.com) or phone (818-503-0300), so we may plan for seating and refreshments. Those with reservations will have priority seating. Also, please help us get the word out about this special event to others who might want to attend.
Please note that conservative business attire is appropriate for this event.
