Expect fireworks Sunday in New York when a former Israeli prime minister, six members of Israel’s current government, a red-hot TV personality and a former Trump administration official gather on one stage at The Jerusalem Post Conference at the Marriott Hotel.

Speaking at the seventh annual conference taking place at The Marriott Times Square Hotel will be Ministers Avigdor Liberman, Gilad Erdan, Gila Gamliel, Yoav Gallant, Tzachi Hanegbi and Israel Katz, along with former prime minister Ehud Olmert, in his first public appearance in the US since returning to public life, comedian Roseanne Barr, whose reboot of her much loved TV series is the hit of the year, and outspoken former Trump senior aide Anthony Scaramucci.

The annual Jerusalem Post Conference has become a much-anticipated tradition that brings together senior Israeli and American officials and personalities before an audience of 1,500 American supporters of Israel.

World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder is serving as the conference president and will open up the proceedings Sunday morning New York time. Other featured speakers include US Senators Ben Cardin and Lindsey Graham, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, former IDF chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi and former education minister Gideon Sa’ar.

“The State of Israel couldn’t have come into being without American Jewry, and their influence and support of Israel is still significant,” said Ronit Hasin-Hochman, the CEO of The Jerusalem Post Group. “The Jerusalem Post has been Israel’s leading media channel for the Jews of the Diaspora since the founding of the state and well before. It’s natural that our conference will take place in the heart of New York, with the participation of so many of Israel’s leaders, including people who have contributed to the security and strength of the country for years.”

The day-long conference will be streamed live on JPost.com beginning at 4 p.m. Israel time.
