Chloé Valdary

Zionist activist

Chloé Valdary represents a welcome new wave of young Zionists who seek to make the world a better place.

Valdary grew up in New Orleans in a family that belonged to the seventh-day Sabbatarian Christian Intercontinental Church of God. While a senior at the University of New Orleans, she founded a pro-Israel student group, Allies of Israel.

She garnered widespread attention with a Tablet Magazine article, in which she unabashedly argued that pro-Palestinian activists misappropriate the narrative of the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

She regards Pastor Dumisani Washington of Christians United for Israel and Brooke Goldstein of The Lawfare Project as her mentors in pro-Israel activism.

As of 2015, she was a Robert L. Bartley Fellow at The Wall Street Journal.
