In 1939, President Manuel L. Quezon opened the doors of the Philippines to 1,300 Jews escaping the Holocaust in Europe before the war erupted. This started the close friendship of Jews and Filipinos, which is commemorated through the Open Doors Monument in Tel Aviv.
In 2013, a documentary entitled Rescue in the Philippinesshared the untold story of this Jewish rescue in Manila. It was heartwarming to hear the stories of Holocaust survivors who were based in Manila and how Filipinos warmly accepted them like their own family.
In November 2013, Danny Pins, who is the son of a Holocaust Survivor in Manila, Margot Casell Pins, joined the American-Jewish Joint Distribution Committee to be the first ones on the ground in Tacloban and help the Typhoon Haiyan Victims.
In 2014, the Israelis also showed their support for our own kababayanRose Fostanes to win the reality singing competition X Factor Israel.
Thank you, Philippines!
This 2015, this close Jewish-Filipino friendship is the inspiration behind the Embassy of Israel’s “Thank You, Philippines!” campaign. It started with the launch of the commemorative Philippine-Israel stamp featuring the Open Doors monument.
On February 26 at 7pm, Rose Fostanes is leading the Thank You, Philippines Jazz Fest at the Music Museum to celebrate the historical friendship between Israel and the Philippines.
This year’s Jazz Festival coincides with the commemoration of the 70th year of the end of World War II, as well as the liberation of Manila. It will highlight the Philippines’ role in the rescue of 1,300 Jewish people from the Holocaust.
Join us as we celebrate this Jewish-Filipino friendship in this Free Thank You concert.

The first time I was planning my Sentosa Trip with the boys in 2013, I had a hard time because I was not familiar with the attractions and their proximity to one another.
Sentosa is huge and it could be daunting just looking at the map, planning your itinerary and budgeting the trip for the family.
I was planning to buy the Sentosa Day FUN Pass with a promise of getting access to 20 attractions with a caveat that you have to finish all of them in one day. I wonder if it was even feasible to hop from one attraction to another and enjoy it instead of just ticking them off a list.
After several visits to Sentosa, I would like to share with you how to maximize the BEST of Sentosa attractions with an effective 1-day itinerary at the most efficient cost.
Here’s the 2014 Planning Guide to have the most awesome experience at Sentosa using the Sentosa Day FUN Pass:
