On October 19, 2004 Jerusalem Post reported, "First Lady Laura Bush reached out to American Jewish women voters on Monday with an address to several hundred philanthropists that was packed with references to her husband's record on Israel, his administration's efforts to combat anti-Semitism, and her own father's role in liberating a concentration camp during World War II. She addressed the United Jewish Communities' International Lion of Judah Conference at the Washington Hilton, two weeks before election day and one day after Sen. John Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, spoke to the same group. Kerry spoke about the importance of philanthropy and her own role in working to help free Soviet Jewry in the late 1970s."
