On Thursday, November 2, more than 700 men gathered at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines to learn more about the impact their support of the Federation has all around the world.
The Co-Chairs, Cliff Boro, Brett Saloner, and David Bramzon kicked-off a powerful evening highlighting our local and national Federations’ recent disaster response efforts; the strength, support, and reconnection to community received through Chaplaincy Services (part of the Shalom San Diego initiative); and the importance of investing in our Jewish future and connecting teens to volunteerism and building community through Motiv (part of the Teen Initiative).
The keynote speaker was David Horovitz, the founding editor of The Times of Israel, the Jerusalem-based current affairs website that launched in February 2012. The Times of Israel, which provides independent coverage of Israel, the region and the world, is the fastest-growing news site in the Jewish world. Horovitz was dynamic, entertaining and passionate about Federation's role in supporting a thriving Israel.
The beautiful setting, delicious food, meaningful speeches, and spirit of brotherhood created the perfect backdrop for a powerful evening. Thank you to all of those who attended for being a part of our vibrant, caring, connected, and enduring Jewish community.
