Herbert Zweibon

Herbert Zweibon was a dedicated Jew and an uncompromising Zionist. He was bold and brave, and would not let an attack on the rights of Jews or Israelis go unanswered. When a statement had to be made, he stated it. When a stand had to be taken, he rose to the occasion. When the world needed to be corrected, he made the corrections.

Herb embraced a genuine Zionism which is hard to come by today. As Founder and Chairman of Americans for a Safe Israel, he worked to share his breadth and depth of knowledge concerning the Jewish People and the State of Israel with others. His firm grasp on Jewish history and current events provided him with a clarity of vision and a call to duty.

For me, Herb’s passing is a personal loss. For the Jewish People and the People of Israel, I simply don’t know how the vacuum of his absence can be filled. In an age when reality is replaced by anti-Israel propaganda “narratives”, an era when the delegitmization and isolation of Israel are the norm, and at a time when Israel’s advocates need to be strong and steadfast, we need a true leader who will stand for what is right and encourage others to do the same. We need Herb Zweibon.

May his soul be bound in the ties of life.
