On April 20, Israel Bonds International held a global event with Major General Elyezer Shkedy, former commander of the Israel Air Force, in commemoration of Yom HaShoah, international Holocaust Remembrance Day. Maj. Gen. Shkedy spoke to Bonds leadership across three continents highlighting his personal testimony “From Son of Holocaust Survivors to Commander of the Israel Air Force: an Israeli Story,” as he recounted his more than 30 years of service in the Israel Air Force including four years as commander. 


This worldwide event, in collaboration with Israel Bonds in the U.S., reiterated the shared unity and affirmation of ‘Never Again’ across the expansive and rapidly evolving Israel Bonds network, and emphasized the importance of perpetuating the memory of the six million Jews who lost their lives in the Holocaust in addition to recognizing the heroism of those who managed to survive. The briefing, an installment of the ongoing series ‘B’yachad We Bond: Israel Bonds in Your Home,’ brings together global supporters of the Jewish nation and is part of a strategic effort focused on organizing insightful, thought-provoking discussions led by inspirational Israeli visionaries who have overcome challenges with bravery and resilience.
