Gene Simmons, Elon Gold to Appear at Virtual Anti-Semitism Gala

StandWithUs, the nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Israel and fighting anti-Semitism around the world, will present its annual Hanukkah “Festival of Lights” gala virtually this year, on Dec. 13 at 5 p.m. PST. Gene Simmons, bassist and co-founder of KISS, and comedians Elon Gold and Jay Leno will appear at the event, which Gold will host.

Simmons, born in Haifa, Israel to a mother who survived the Holocaust, immediately agreed to participate, saying, “We need to wake up and stop hating each other. Join us, this is a wonderful time to change the world.”

Gold, a longtime StandWithUs supporter and Festival of Lights host, will emcee for the 13th year, and Special Envoy to Monitor anti-Semitism, Elan Carr, is the keynote speaker. Joshua Washington, director of the Institute for Black Solidarity with Israel (IBSI) and the Hebrew Project, will premiere the new song “Oh Jerusalem.”

The event is free, but registration is required to attend and participate in the auction. Click here for details.
