New York—EL AL Israel Airlines celebrated its 350th “Ambassador” Israel event in New York at the home of Israel Consul General Ido Aharoni. The mission of the program is to foster goodwill and diplomacy as well as inspire groups worldwide to be advocates for Israel.
EL AL pilots and flight attendants from all walks of life, dressed in uniform, share interesting and thought-provoking personal stories. The EL AL Ambassadors speak to organizations and schools throughout the world in cities from where EL AL offers scheduled flight service. Programs are specifically tailored to accommodate each organization and take place in a variety of locations, including university campuses, high schools, community centers as well as in synagogues and churches.
“We congratulate our ‘Ambassadors’ for undertaking Israel’s advocacy and are thrilled for their success around the world,” shared Consul General Ido Aharoni. Topics of discussion are geared toward each audience and combine personal achievement with the non-political side of Israel.
Launched almost four years ago in 2011 in conjunction with the Jewish Agency, Stand With Us, and the Foreign Ministry, more than 500,000 people worldwide have participated in these “people-to-people” programs.
The EL AL “Ambassadors” volunteer their time and there is no charge to host a program. For more information, email [email protected]
