The Moskowitz Prize for Zionism will be awarded tonight, Tuesday,
6:30 p.m. at Ir David. The ceremony will be carried live on Arutz
One of this year´s recipients, Attorney Nitzana Darshan-Leitner, and
the organization she heads – Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Center) – won a
$323 million judgment in a U.S. court against Iran and Syria last
week. The lawsuit concerned the countries´ support for terrorists who
killed an American teenager and ten others in a 2006 bombing.
Darshan-Leitner fights against terrorist "lawfare" and has won
hundreds of millions of dollars for terror victims in lawsuits
against Muslim terror groups.
The two other recipients this year are Dr. Yitzchak Glick, Chairman
of the Emergency Medical Center in Efrat, and Tzvika Slonim, a
founder of Gush Emunim and of the Ariel University Center.
The Moskowitz Prize for Zionism, founded by Dr. Irving and Cherna
Moskowitz, was first awarded in 2008. It was established in
recognition of the people who put Zionism into action in today´s
Israeli society – at times risking their own personal security,
placing the collective interest before personal needs, and doing what
it takes to ensure a strong, secure Jewish homeland.
