Christians United for Israel at the University of Arizona will host “A Night to Honor Israel: Arizona Stands with Israel” featuring David Brog, CUFI executive director, on Thursday, April 19 at 6 p.m.

Before CUFI, Brog worked in the U.S. Senate for seven years, rising to be chief of staff to Sen. Arlen Specter and staff director of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He has also served as an executive at America Online and practiced corporate law in Tel Aviv and Philadelphia, Pa. Brog is the author of “Standing with Israel: Why Christians Support the Jewish State” (2006) and “In Defense of Faith: the Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity” (2010). In 2007, the Forward newspaper listed Brog in its “Forward 50” most influential Jews in America.

The event will be bilingual. Remarks in Spanish will be followed by an English translation from the stage. Spanish speakers will be offered headphones for Spanish translations of English remarks.

The evening will begin with hors d’oeuvres and educational displays, with the formal program starting at 7 p.m. The event, which is free, will be held in the main auditorium of the Social Sciences Building (Room 100).
