The American Israel Education Foundation, affiliated with American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) established the the Daniel K. Inouye Symposium for Policy Experts — an annual trip to Israel. It honors the memory and legacy of Senator Inouye. The Inaugural trip was June 3 – 11, 2017. Irene Hirano Inouye was in DC on June 12th and attended the AIPAC Board meeting where a representative of the traveling delegation shared heartwarming experiences and important diplomatic policy discussions. Irene presented a gift to commemorate the inaugural visit – a framed 1952 Israeli bond, the type Senator sold while going to law school at George Washington University — with the request that it symbolize the annual mission and Senator’s steadfast commitment to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.
