Jon Voight is an American actor. He won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his leading role in the film Coming Home. He has also won four Golden Globe Awards and has been nominated for eleven. Voight is vocal in his support for Israel and has called out his fellow colleagues in Hollywood for anti-Semitic comments. In May 2008, Voight paid a solidarity visit to Israel in honor of its 70th birthday. "I'm coming to salute, encourage and strengthen the people of Israel on this joyous 60th birthday", said Voight. "This week is about highlighting Israel as a moral beacon. At a time when its enemies threaten nuclear destruction, Israel heals." For over 20 years, he served as spokesman for Chabad’s Children of Chernobyl, a medical relief program for Russian Jewish children still affected by the fallout from the 1986 explosion of the nuclear reactor in Chernobyl, Ukraine.
