Here's a letter from the community affairs specialist for Los Angeles' Israeli consulate...

My name is Ryan Mendoza, Community Affairs Specialist with the Consulate General of Israel here in Los Angeles. I read with interest your article, "Selling Israel to Progressive Latinos." Given that one of my aims here at the Consulate is to conduct outreach to the Latino community throughout the Southwestern United States, I appreciate your prescription for resurrecting the "historical Jewish-Latino relationship.

I would like to get together with you so we can discuss your ideas in greater detail and explore opportunities for putting these ideas into action.

My response...

Thank you for the kind words regarding my article. I would be delighted to meet with you, although I'm not sure what exactly I can add outside of my words. Let me know how your schedule looks like and let's talk.
