Eliyahu McLean & Raed featured on Voice Of Israel Radio July 6th, 2015

The Annual Iftar Interfaith Dinner was coupled with a breaking of fast for Jews on the 17th of Tammuz this year. The event was so well attended, we had to post on Facebook that RSVP for dinner was closed, but people could still come to the 6-8pm open portion. To get a good idea of what is happening on the ground in Israel, the climate, and what the AR is faced with everyday, interview will give you a great idea.
