Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner was the Israel Defense Forces spokesperson for the foreign media for four years. He led a staff of over 60 that communicated to the world about the IDF. Following a career encompassing twenty-five years in the Israel Defense Forces, always on the forefront of crisis, controversy, and conflict, Peter provides consultancy services in the fields of crisis communications, strategic communications, social media, and reputation management.

“Israel’s security is such a critical concern all across this community,” said Ira Holz, who Co-Chairs the Federation’s Men’s Division with Ken Lebersfeld and Chuck Lichtman. “We are excited to offer this rare opportunity to hear the experiences and insights of a renowned speaker, among our many varied men’s programs.”

“We’ve enjoyed evenings with major sports figures, sampled fine spirits, played vintage pinball, learned from global experts on vital Jewish concerns and even explored Cuba together,” said Co-Chair Chuck Lichtman. “Our Men’s Division fills an important niche for guys looking to connect with like-minded men for great times together while being part of something larger than themselves.”

“As we bond together over common interests with the best of companions, our men also know they are making lives brighter for our fellow Jews right in our own backyard, in Israel, and across the globe wherever we are needed,” added Co-Chair Ken Lebersfeld.
