On September 13, 2016, Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens hosted a fundraising reception for the America-Israel Friendship League (AIFL) at the Marietta home of Eyal and Aviva Postelnik. General Olens traveled to Israel in 2011 as part AIFL’s Leadership Delegation program designed to present American leaders and opinion makers with Israel’s great achievements. Along with fellow State Attorneys General from across the United States, General Olens gained a greater understanding of Israel’s legal system and experienced firsthand the many sights and sounds of the country. The AIFL Attorneys General delegation is facilitated in cooperation with the National Association of Attorneys Generals and the Ministry of Education, State of Israel.
In addition to the remarks from Attorney General Olens, the assembled guests heard from Amb. Judith Varnai Shorer, Consul General of Israel to the Southeastern United States; LaVon Mercer, Israeli Basketball Legend and local Atlanta businessman; Hon. Robert Abrams, former Attorney General of New York and Daniella Rilov, Executive Director of the AIFL.
The League presented General Olens with a framed photo of his 2011 meeting with the 9th President of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres.
