AFSI visit with Helen Freedman and Judy Kadish


Americans for a Safe Israel is an educational Zionist organization. AFSI was founded by Herb Zweibon in 1970, as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, AFSI’s platform promulgates Israel’s historical, religious and legal rights to the territories won in the 1967 war and has consistently argues that a strong territorially defensible Israel is essential to U.S. security interests in the region and that “land for peace” is a delusional policy. Herb passed away in 2011.

Helen Freedman – Co-Executive Director

Helen became Executive Director of Americans for a Safe Israel/AFSI in 1995. She continues as AFSI’s Co-Executive Director, along with Judy Freedman Kadish. Helen serves as a spokeswoman for the organization at innumerable meetings, press conferences, radio, and TV interviews. Helen assists in planning and leading the semi-annual AFSI Chizuk missions to Israel which have been conducted for the past 22 years. She also assists in planning and participating in programs and demonstrations related to a safe Israel – and America.

Judy Freedman Kadish- Co- Executive Director

Judy has been working with Americans For a Safe Israel since 2012. She began as Director of Special Projects and now shares the Executive Director role with Helen. She has planned and executed many AFSI meetings, represented AFSI at numerous functions and has been interviewed by various press outlets in her capacity as AFSI Co-Executive Director.

During her years at AFSI, Judy has become familiar with all of the organization’s Israeli contacts their American counterparts and has developed great cooperative efforts with them. Together, she and Helen plan and execute AFSI’s Chizuk missions and co-lead the trips.

I was told by a famous Holocaust Survivor, Irving Roth (author of Bondi’s Brother) “there is no trip like an AFSI trip, you will learn more than you could ever imagine”. I would agree. There is a core group of people that go each time…some once a year and others when they can. I try to go every chance I get…it is never the same.

It is a great blessing to represent this group in Texas. This link is for an event held at Generations Church, Granbury.
