Boston Globe Columnist Jeff Jacoby to Visit Young Israel of Teaneck

The Young Israel of Teaneck (YIOT) announced that Jeff Jacoby, Award-winning Op-Ed Columnist for the Boston Globe, will speak on Sunday, May 22, at 8 p.m., on the topic of “Zionism Is a Badge of Honor.” This event is part of the YIOT’s Dr. Bertram z”l & Ann Newman Adult Education Program and is in celebration of Yom Ha’atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim.

“We are honored to have Jeff Jacoby join our community and help enhance our observance of both Yom Ha’atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim. His in-depth knowledge of the Middle East and his passion for the State of Israel will serve to heighten our awareness of the current climate as well as inspire us to do all we can for the Jewish State,” said Rabbi Binyamin Krohn, rabbi of the Young Israel of Teaneck.

Jacoby is a nationally recognized conservative voice in journalism. In 1994, the Boston Globe recruited him from the Boston Herald, where he had been chief editorial writer since 1987. In 1999, Jacoby became the first recipient of the Breindel Prize, a major award for excellence in opinion journalism. He has been recognized by the Institute for Justice with the Thomas Paine Award, which honors journalists “who dedicate their work to the preservation and championing of individual liberty.” In 2009, he was presented with the Ben Hecht Award for Outstanding Journalism on the Middle East. In 2014, he was included in the “Forward 50,” a list of the 50 most influential American Jews. His columns are distributed by the New York Times Syndicate, and readers can also follow him on Facebook, Twitter and his website, www.JeffJacoby.com.

The YIOT is located at 868 Perry Lane in Teaneck. The event is free and open to the public. For more information contact [email protected].
