Nir Barkat to speak in Buckhead, later today

Nir Barkat, the Mayor of Jerusalem, Israel, will deliver a significant address on his “New Vision for Jerusalem,” at 2 p.m. on Mon. Oct. 11, before more than 700 people at the Intercontinental Hotel (3315 Peachtree Road, NE).

The mayor is a guest of Jewish National Fund (JNF), the non-profit organization that has planted more than 240 million trees in Israel and launched many other environmental projects there.

This is the first time the Jerusalem National Fund is holding its annual two-day conference in Atlanta and the first time Mayor Barkat will be in the state of Georgia.
