Footlik addresses future of U.S./Israeli relations following election at annual agency celebration and meeting
BY MATT FRANZBLAU
In early June, the Jewish Federation of Jacksonville's five agencies came together for their annual celebration and meeting, where board members and officers were officially installed and recognition was given to various individuals and programs that helped make the past year in the Jacksonville Jewish community such a success. The event was held at River Garden Senior Services and following the official installments came remarks from former special assistant and Jewish liaison to President Bill Clinton, Jay Footlik. Footlik, who is the founder and current CEO of Gobal Policy Initiatives, spoke about his experiences at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and if the upcoming presidential election will hold much bearing on the future of U.S./Israeli relations. Footlik also fondly described first hand experiences with such foreign dignitaries such as former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
