Rosh Betar On TV

Jabotinsky Memorial on Israel's Channel 1

On Thursday, 5 November, at 9:45pm, Israel's Channel 1 will broadcast the memorial event held at the Begin Center for Ze'ev Jabotinsky's 69th anniversary of his death.

"Ze'ev Jabotinsky: The Poet and the Author" was held in July 2009 and was considered a unique event because it highlighted the artistic side of Jabotinsky and how that artistic quality informed his leadership. Speakers at the event were Herzl Makov, Chairman of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center; Roni Milo, Chairman for the Public Council for the Commemoration of the Legacy and Achievements of Ze'ev Jabotinsky of the Prime Minister's Office; Prof. Yehuda Friedlander and poet Miron Isakson delivered academic lectures; Izzy Mann was the moderator. Yohanan Yovel sang Jabotinsky poems to his own melodies and the B'nei Binyamina Choral Group sang Betar favorites. Thespian Oded Tehomi read dramatic excerpts from Jabotinksy's novel, Samson.
