Zionism for Millennials
Chloé Valdary is a Tikvah Fellow at The Wall Street Journal working under Pulitzer Prize-winning author Bret Stephens. There, she is conducting a research project on the state of Israel advocacy in America today — namely, what works, what doesn't, and how to make it better. Born and raised in a kosher-style Christian home in New Orleans, Louisiana, she became involved in pro-Israel activism as a college freshman. In 2013, her comments on the dangers of BDS went viral. In 2014, she wrote “To the Students for Justice in Palestine from an Angry Black Woman.” Her work as a Zionist thinker and human rights activist has been featured in The Jerusalem Post, the Daily Beast and others.
