An Evening of Community and Solidarity featuring Consul General Yinam Cohen

On Wednesday, January 24, 2024, AFHU Midwest Region Board President and National Board Secretary, I. Steven Edelson and his wife, Carol, hosted an intimate gathering of friends, colleagues, and AFHU Midwest Board members to hear directly from Yinam Cohen, Consul General of Israel to the Midwest, to discuss the current war in Israel and its effects across the Midwest.

Yinam Cohen is a career diplomat with 16 years of experience in the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He holds an MBA cum laude, as well as a B.Sc. in Computer Science, both from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Beyond the first phase of the We Are One campaign that the Hebrew University launched last fall, which focused on the initial needs of the HU community, the Hebrew University also identified three additional areas in need of funding for the campaign’s second phase:

  • Cultivating a shared Arab-Jewish society
  • Rebuilding heavily affected areas in Southern Israel, such as the town of Ofakim
  • Conducting research and training in the trauma and mental health field
