Award Recipients

Genesis Award Recipient and Keynote Speaker - Mark Steyn


  • Introducing him at the United States Senate in 2015, Ted Cruz called Mark Steyn "an international bestselling author, a Top Five jazz recording artist, and a leading Canadian human rights activist".  All of which happens to be true.
  • Steyn's human rights campaign to restore free speech to Canada led to the repeal by Parliament of the notorious "Section 13" hate-speech law, a battle he recounts in his book Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech And The Twilight Of The West
  • Mark wrote about Israel. “The Jewish state is a great success story. The modern Middle East is the misbegotten progeny of the British and French colonial map makers of 1922. All the nation states in that neck of the woods date back a mere 60 or 70 years – Iraq to the Thirties, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Israel to the Forties. The only difference is that Israel has made a go of it.  Would I rather there were more countries like Israel, or more like Syria? Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East (Iraq may yet prove a second), and its Arab citizens enjoy more rights than they would living under any of the kleptocrat kings and psychotic dictators who otherwise infest the region.”
  • Mark is the author of the following: 

  1. After America, which was a Top Five bestseller in the United States and a Number One bestseller in Canada
  2. America Alone: The End Of The World As We Know It, a New York Times bestseller in the United States and a Number One bestseller in Canada
  3. The [Un]documented Mark Steyn, his most recent bestseller
  4. Lights Out - Islam, free speech and the twilight of the west

Emet Award Recipient - Andrea Levin


President and Executive Director of CAMERA – Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America

Andrea Levin took over the leadership of CAMERA in 1991. Under Ms. Levin’s leadership, CAMERA’s membership grew within a few years from 1000 to over 20,000, and now numbers over 65,000. In addition to Boston headquarters, the organization also has offices in Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Israel.

Over the years, CAMERA has focused major efforts on improving coverage of Israel and the Middle East by such major outlets as the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, NPR, PBS, and ABC News.

While there have been major successes with most of these outlets, there is also a continuing need for monitoring and interaction.

Emet Award Recipient - Ray Hanna


President of Christians and Jews United for Israel

Ray Hanna came to America in the late 1960s from Cairo, Egypt, with his family. As Coptic Christians, they were a minority in Egypt where Sharia law is written into the constitution, and where Islam rules. Their only hope of freedom of religion and escaping religious persecution was to come to America.

Ray knows how precious Freedom is. He cherishes his Freedom. He has never, ever taken, for granted, his right to vote. 

Ray leads one of the most important organizations in New England in the fight against anti-Semitism, the BDS movement, and the vitriolic narrative that is rising on university campuses all over the USA.

2018 GA Charity - Yatar Israel


YATAR’s immediate need is to supply a new group of 70 volunteers for deployment to the Israeli communities bordering the Israel-Gaza border. The key task for our team is to help supplement Border Patrol and IDF personnel to ensure the safety of Israeli citizens under extreme threat from terrorists looking to kill and injure people, and burn as much land as possible. We are currently deployed at Nahal Oz, the kibbutz that continues to get hit the most frequently by the terrorists and we need to expand our team to expand into the other neighboring kibbutzim that are inadequately served by existing infrastructure and continue to suffer.

To effectively respond to the urgent situation, YATAR has recruited and trained 70 new volunteers. For the volunteers to be effective, they need to be dressed and equipped with proper equipment for their field work. The massive surge in terrorist fires and patrols required immediate deployment of the volunteers, without any gear or tools. We need to immediately equip them properly. We reached right now $64,000 out of $175.000. 

The cost to equip each volunteer is $2,500
