ISRAEL 70 – Israel’s 70th Anniversary Gala (for Krembo Wings)
On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion (Israel’s primary founder and first Prime Minister) declared the establishment of a Jewish state to be called Israel.
Seventy years later – in honor of the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, miraculous contributions to the rest of the world, and the fulfillment of God’s promises to Abraham and Jacob – singer, actor and humanitarian Pat Boone hosts this historic gala, joined by some of the world’s leading entertainers and Christian leaders.
“And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
-Genesis 17 King James Version (KJV)
“Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
-Genesis 32:28 King James Version (KJV)
As the official Christian Ambassador to the Holy Land, Pat Boone has been standing with Israel for more than 50 years. “The Exodus Song (This Land Is Mine)” has become like a second national anthem for many Jews. Boone’s original lyrics to the stirring theme from the Academy Award-winning epic film “Exodus” were scribbled on the back of a Christmas card now on display at Yad Vashem.
