Ever since Mike Huckabee’s visit, it seems that the path to the White House runs through Ariel. On Friday, August 26, our friends Jerry and Deborah Strober brought Presidential hopeful Herman Cain and his wife Gloria to the City of Ariel. It was quite the visit.

Herman Cain and Mayor Ron Nachman

Mayor Ron Nachman met the delegation at the Oranit Checkpoint on Highway 5. He opened with explanations regarding the history of the region and a geopolitical background as it relates to current events. From Highway 5 the group took a driving tour through the Ariel and Barkan Industrial Parks, where they were exposed to the success of Israeli industry and the significance of coexistence between Israelis and the Arabs who reside in the region.

The first stop in the residential area of Ariel was the Eshel Hashomron Hotel, where Mr. and Mrs. Cain got a glimpse of Ariel’s position as the tourist’s capital of Samaria. From there the group went to the Ariel National Development Center, where Ariel’s role as a contributing force to the State of Israel became crystal clear.
The Cain’s met a number of Ariel’s residents along the way, including Irena and Kuba Vadislavsky – the Holocaust survivors who run the Ariel Holocaust and Heroism Memorial Museum.

All throughout the visit, as Mr. Cain internalized the centrality of Ariel and it’s national significance, he was dually impressed by Mayor Ron Nachman’s vision and success in establishing a city in the heart of Samaria. A stop at Ariel University Center only served to draw that point home, following an informative tour at some of the Center’s research laboratories.

Shortly after they met, it was obvious that Mr. Cain and Mayor Ron Nachman have quite a lot in common. Amidst conversation they discovered that, in addition to their respective entrepreneurial successes and their bold approach to tending to their nations’ needs in spite of the undesirable elements that may arise in politics, they are both proud and healthy cancer survivors who know the value of life and are doing their best to make the most of it.

Dear Mayor Nachman,

On behalf of the entire communications staff of The Israel Project, I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with us last week and to give us a personal tour of Ariel. Our team really learned a lot from you and I am deeply grateful for the fact that you shared your time and talents with us.

Your briefing imparted us with new knowledge that helped us to understand the complexities and challenges facing Israel today and tomorrow.  Moreover, your insights provided us with important information and awareness which will help us as we work with the media, opinion-makers and leaders as well as pro-Israel advocates throughout the world.

We are planning to do a fact sheet on Ariel that we will send to 76,000 reporters around the world. I will be in touch with you about this very soon.

As The Israel Project continues to grow and work for the security of Israel and Jewish communities worldwide, we look forward to seeing you again in Jerusalem or Washington and staying in touch during the critical weeks and months ahead.

AIPAC Thanks Mayor Nachman for Ariel Visit

Dear Mayor Nachman,

Thank you very much for taking the time to address this year’s AIPAC Advanced Advocacy Mission to Israel.  You gave many students a perspective they had never considered before and inspired them to continue their education on the subject.  We continue to collect feedback from participants who describe the trip as a whole as “transformative” and “life-changing”.

As the students return to their colleges and universities after their winter vacations, they certainly have a much deeper appreciation for the State of Israel and, thanks to you, the motivation and the background to further explore the key issues affecting the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Thank you again for your time and for your outstanding presentation.
