JBS President and CEO Rabbi Mark S. Golub said, “The mission of our Jewish television project is to stand in support of Jewish values, Jewish tradition, and critically, to stand with the Jewish State of Israel. We’re thrilled to bring this fabulous coming-together of Jewish leaders, whom we feature often on JBS, to mark an important moment on the Jewish calendar. It is always a joy and privilege to collaborate with Rabbis Buchdahl, Steinmetz and Cosgrove, to bring their contributions to the JBS audience; and for us all to join together with AIPAC for this event signifies a real commitment and sense of solidarity for the Jewish State across the religious spectrum. It represents everything we aim to offer through the power of television ”

Rabbi Elliot J. Cosgrove, Ph.D. of Park Avenue Synagogue said, “Our hearts come together as we transition from a moment of memorial with Yom HaZikaron to one of joy with Yom HaAtzmaut. Thank you to JBS for providing us an opportunity to celebrate Israel’s 74th year of existence, together with my close colleagues Rabbis Buchdahl and Steinmetz, and tonight – through this broadcast – with friends from all over the world.”

Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz of Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun shared, “The Jewish community stands united behind the state of Israel; And as rabbis from different communities and different denominations we all stand together in support of Israel.”

Rabbi Angela Buchdahl of Central Synagogue stated, “The Tekes Ma’avar has become an annual tradition shared between our three diverse congregations.  This year we are honored to expand it to a wider community through JBS.  Together we affirm that Israel continues to unify Jews across the denominations and serve as a source of pride, as we celebrate the miracle of this young nation.“
