Migdal Ohr to Hold Annual Gala Dinner in New York City on April 29

Migdal Ohr, Israel’s premier organization for underprivileged, orphaned, abused, and new immigrant children, will hold its Annual Gala Dinner on Wednesday, April 29 at IAC Headquarters in New York City. This year’s event will honor distinguished supporters who have contributed significantly to the success of the organization over its 42-year history and spotlight several young supporters who have generously given back to their less-fortunate peers overseas.

Migdal Ohr is proud to recognize our “Guests of Honor” Tzvi and Nancy Fishman of New York City and Teaneck, and “Young Leadership Couple of the Year” Laurie and Todd Scherzer also of New York City for their unwavering dedication and commitment to Migdal Ohr’s children-in-need.

The evening will also include a special program featuring Migdal Ohr’s Founder and Dean and 2004 Israel Prize winner, Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, who will pay tribute to one of the primary founders of the American Friends of Migdal Ohr, Dr. Belle Rosenbaum, z”l.

Additionally, Migdal Ohr will be recognizing five teenagers who have participated in the Bar and Bat Mitzvah Twinning Program—Eli Cattan and Isaac Mizrahi of Brooklyn, Eliana Greenwald of Cedarhurst, and Ari Mitchell and Ilyana Mitchell of New York City. These young supporters decided to share their own b’nai mitzvot with students at Migdal Ohr to help make their Israeli peers’ special days just as joyous and festive as their own.

This year’s Gala co-chairs include Allison and Michael Bromberg of New York City, Mindy and Steven Fink of Woodmere, and Jordana and Adam Grunfeld of New York City.
