On July 24, Israel Bonds New York Women’s Division and New York Young Investors Society held an exclusive lunch at Bonds headquarters with over 50 attendees, featuring guest speaker Karnit Goldwasser. A prominent lecturer, author and activist within the Jewish community, Karnit spoke of her personal story, detailed in her book, The Path to You
, in which she faced the unknown during the abduction of her husband, Ehud "Udi" Goldwasser, along with Eldad Regev by Hezbollah to Lebanon on July 12, 2006. Karnit advocated passionately for more than two years, meeting with politicians, government members, human rights organizations, and fearlessly stood before the Iranian president at the UN General Assembly, demanding to learn the whereabouts of her beloved husband and his comrade. Exuding immense courage and strength, Karnit demonstrated the importance of doing everything in one’s power to effectuate change, and in her account she highlighted the realization that all Jewish people around the world are one nation, especially when encountering struggle and hardship. Her story of resilience, which was published in Hebrew and released in 2011, is the true story of Israel itself.
