Chloé Simone Valdary, president of Allies of Israel, University of New Orleans

She told The Jewish Press that she admires the Jewish community because “it is the Torah and Jewish values that have built the bedrock of Western civilization which is a fact that is too often understated.”  Her family, she said, is very supportive of her efforts.  In fact, it is to her parents that she points in ultimately explaining her commitment to Israel.  Valdary said, “I think I acquired my love for Israel and my desire to speak up for good from the values my parents instilled within me at an early age.”

Valdary ends the announcement for the January 28 event with, “‘We must,'” as Lincoln stated, “have faith that right makes might; and in that faith, let us to the end, dare to do our duty.”   Wow.  With focus and fortitude like that, Israel’s allies are greatly strengthened by the likes of Chloe’ Simone Valdary.
