Morton Klein is Keynote Speaker and “Light Unto The Nations” Honoree at 149th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner

Queens Village, NY – The Queens Village Republican Club presents its 149th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner, on Sunday March 3, 2024 featuring Morton Klein, president of Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), who will be the keynote speaker and “Light Unto The Nations” Honoree. The topic will be “The Survival of Israel, America, and Western Civilization.”

Morton Klein is a modern-day Paul Revere advocating on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people in America and throughout the world, and the preeminent voice on combatting antisemitism at home and abroad. The Wall Street Journal called Mr. Klein, “an outsized figure in the American Jewish struggle.” For his fearless advocacy for truth and justice in defense of Israel during these turbulent times, he will be the recipient of the “Light Unto the Nations” award at the historic gala of America’s oldest Republican club.

The theme of this year’s annual patriotic gala is “Make America Great Again in 2024,”  and in the words of Lt. Col. Allen West, keynote speaker at a past Lincoln Dinner: “As the oldest GOP club in America, it is your duty to carry the torch for the Republican Party and its core principles for the whole nation.”

The gala commences at 3:00 pm with a lavish cocktail hour, and full course sit-down dinner, starting at 4:00 pm, with open bar, Viennese table of incredible desserts, awards ceremonies, and speeches. It is held at the famous Antun’s of Queens Village, 96-43 Springfield Blvd., Queens Village NY, where nearly every New York Governor, New York City Mayor, and President of the United States have been in attendance since the 1950s.

148th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner, Photos and Review of a Spectacular Patriotic Gala!

President of the Queens Village Republican Club

A patriotic medley was performed by Naomi Sica on the piano as guests entered the grand ballroom of the renowned Antun’s of Queens Village, a magnificent catering hall in Eastern Queens, where nearly every New York Governor, New York City Mayor, and President of the United States have been in attendance since the 1950s.  

The 148th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner was a spectacular patriotic gala with over 250 patriotic Americans who traveled from the corners of the tri-state region and even some came up from Florida. As they entered the hall, folks joined in the singing of God Bless America and patriotic songs and stood for the Star-Spangled Banner led by Pastor Dana Dice. Father Paul Palesty of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church delivered an uplifting invocation to open the dinner program which was emceed by Barbara from Harlem.

Some of the highlights of this exceptional dinner party were the stirring and emotional Lincoln Address delivered by Marly Hornik, Executive Director of NY Citizens Audit, and the rousing speech by Kristina Raevsky, recipient of the Young American Patriot of the Year award. Kristina is a 13-year-old author of two books and multiple op-eds on saving America and restoring meritocracy in our education system. She was applauded later in the program by keynote speaker, Steve Cortes as a brave patriot who has what it takes to become the first female president of the U.S.A.
