Former Mossad chief Yatom to speak in San Diego

LA JOLLA, California (SDJW)—Israel’s retired chief of the Mossad, Maj. Gen. Danny Yatom, will be the featured speaker Saturday, Oct. 30, at the “First Annual Gala Dinner” of the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces at La Jolla Hilton Torrey Pines.

The 7 p.m. event also will honor Charles and Randi Wax, Carl and Elizabeth Allen Sr, and Carl and Gigi Allen Jr.

An FIDF flyer for the event notes that Yatom was born in Netanya, served for 33 years in the IDF, including in the 1967 Six Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War, and was chief of staff during the “Peace for Galilee Operation,” also known as the 1982 Lebanon War.  Later he served as a military secretary to Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and was appointed head of the Mossad in 1998.

Yatom subsequently served two terms in the Knesset before founding Global Strategic Group, which provides “multidisciplinary security solutions to governments and corporations.”

Those interested in attending the dinner may email San Diego FIDF Executive Director Nir BenZvi  at sandiego@fidf.org
