Jewish Coalition's annual Summer Bash in Beverly Hills. His award as a "Hollywood Visionary" was the finale to an evening featuring a live panel hosted by Fred Barnes with GOP 2004 presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), and Sen.Kelly Ayotte (R-NH).  Rabbi Abe Cooper, associate dean at the Simon Wiesenthal Center called Voight, "a super-mensch... you see him all the time defending Israel and the values of (America) our country." 

Matthew Brooks, executive director of the R.J.C. said, "As the Hollywood Left has come out repeatedly to bash Israel, to support the B.D.S. movement, Jon Voight is a true friend of Israel who has been unflinching in his ability and willingness to stand-up and speak-out in support of Israel."

Steven Bauer, Voight's co-star on Showtime's "Ray Donovan" said, "This is the greatest country in the world and freedom of thought and to express yourself should be first and foremost. And I don't see a lot of it from the Left. It's unfortunate because most people I hear talk that way claim to be real humanists. But they really don't like to hear conservative ideas.... But people like Jon- you have to give him a lot of credit because of his courage in the face of all that."

Rabbi Cooper added that Jon is a person "who consistently embarasses us Jews- because as a Gentile he has done so much for our community, maybe more than a lot of Jews in this town could."

Voight told JewTube, "We all have to realize the times that we're in and especially the danger to Israel. ... All people should be aware of our ally, Israel, and the peril that the Israelis are in right now- with Obama turning his back on Prime Minister Netanyahu. We all have to do everything we can to put the right people (and right person) into office soon, and that would make a big difference if we can do it."

Among the other Hollywood celebrities applauding Mr. Voight were Sam Sorbo, Angie Harmon, Nick Searcy, and Raquel Welch.
