This is a powerful video about Jewish pride, Jewish belonging and Jewish beliefs from African-American poet Chloé Valdary, a leading voice in the pro-Israel movement.

This is what it means to be an indigenous people – belonging and surviving.

Chloe discusses what Israel means and has meant throughout the history of the Jewish people. With her poetry, she eloquently describes the significance of the Jewish homeland.
