An evening full of passion
Lots of people had come to the first David Lilienthal-lecture and the following Meet & Greet with David & Gun organized by the Levisson Institute.
Juliette Walma van der Molen started the evening with an eloquent speech.
David himself told us he was glad to be in Amsterdam again, but Jeruzalem is phantastic. He brought that across to us reciting a short poem of the well known Dutch poet Jacob de Haan.
Apparently he had no idea beforehand who had been invited as the speaker and hearing it was Anat - one of the most powerful women he knows - was a complete surprise to him.
Anat Hoffman delivered an excellent speech. She made the impression of a strong power woman, somebody who discovered she was good at ‘making trouble’. She called on us to express our opinion loud and clear, to actively think about how the sovereign Jewish State ought to be set up. “Size up Israël”, was her advice, “by watching how they treat the orphan, the stranger and the widow.”
Look at a selection from the photographs.

Anat Hoffman not only spoke in Amsterdam. The following evenings she was the guest of the LJG of The Hague and the LJG of Utrecht.
