On July 10, 150 of New York’s most prestigious real estate professionals gathered at Glen Oaks Country Club in Old Westbury for the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces’ New York Real Estate Division’s eighth annual golf outing. The FIDF supports IDF soldiers’ well-being and educational programs for them. It honored the Meridian Capital Group, one of the nation’s most prominent commercial real estate, finance, investment sales, and retail leasing advisers.
Danny Heumann of Englewood, Meridian Capital Group’s executive vice president, was among Meridian’s honorees.
“Meridian is humbled and honored to be this year’s honoree,” Ralph Herzka, the chairman and CEO of Meridian Capital Group, said. “FIDF is an exceptional organization that has made a lasting and meaningful impact on generations of soldiers, veterans, and their loved ones. We are proud of FIDF’s work and pleased to be a part of this annual event.”
The FIDF New York Real Estate Division was created in 2006 by a group of successful business and philanthropic leaders who were passionate about uniting members of the real estate community to support the men and women who protect and defend the Jewish state. The division has helped support several projects, including the construction of a well-being center at the IDF Revaya Base for the 188th Armored Brigade’s 71st battalion. The Real Estate Division plays a central role in the activities of the FIDF’s tri-state region.
