QUEENS VILLAGE, January 24, 2013: Rabbi Aryeh Spero, will be the keynote speaker at the 138th Anniversary Lincoln Day Dinner on February 10th, presented by the Queens Village Republican Club, the oldest continuously active Republican Club in America. His job is to fire up the attendees to go out and wage the battle for the soul of America. He is up to the task, as he has been inspiring thousands to action in his nationwide speaking tour.
Past Lincoln Day Dinners have been exciting experiences. Queens Village’s historic political club hosted a Lincoln essay contest for student scholarships. Political celebrities and firebrands have been featured speakers such as former Congressman Allen West, radio talk show host Curtis Sliwa, Conservative icon George Marlin, former borough president and mayoral candidate Herman Badillo, Mayor Bloomberg and others. They have regaled the GOP Club’s Lincoln Dinner parties that have been hailed as the annual highlight of the Queens political calendar.
As an acclaimed public speaker, Rabbi Spero, known as “America’s Rabbi” speaks passionately about his wholehearted love for America. The melding of his exuberance for his country and his fervent devotion to Judaism in the Orthodox tradition have produced an enlightening offspring in the form of a book: “Push Back, Reclaiming the American Judeo-Christian Spirit.” It’s not merely an argument he’s advancing for the Jewish values, Torah and the New Testament that have laid the foundation of Western Civilization. More importantly, he imparts the courage and strength to actively stand up and fight for the traditional values of America, before its inevitable decline as a morally based society. Rabbi Spero is a spiritual firebrand in the battle for the soul of America, and his defiant cry is to take it to the streets and shout it out loud in the public square, in order to make a real difference.
This is his ever-present theme, the theme of pushing back, standing up and speaking out, that pervades not only his book, but every one of his articles, op-eds, TV appearances, radio interviews, public speeches, congressional hearings, as well as one-on-one conversations. He has appeared regularly on FOX News, CBS, C-SPAN, WOR-TV, the Glenn Beck TV program and many others. His articles have appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers and he has been interviewed on radio shows throughout the country. He has spoken to the National Press Club, testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee, addressed The Heritage Foundation, fired up Tea Party rallies and Conservative Party events. Rabbi Spero founded a conservative think tank of Black and Jewish political conservatives with Herman Cain, and was the first rabbi to endorse Ronald Reagan for President in public newspaper ads around the country.
