AIPAC Conference

Applefeld & Yousef

B’nai Tzedek fundholder and former Columbus Jewish Youth Foundation Board member Julia Applefeld was among the 70 Columbus delegates, young and old, who traveled to Washington, D.C. for this week’s AIPAC Policy Conference.  They heard from national and world leaders, and had serious discussions on strategies to enhance the US – Israel relationship.  Among the presenters was Mosab Hassan Yousef – who worked as a double Shin Bet agent from 1997 to 2007 and is credited with preventing dozens of suicide attacks and assassinations, exposing numerous Hamas cells, and assisting Israel in hunting down many militants, including his own father, Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef.  His story has been made into an award winning documentary and a bestselling book.
