On Sunday, May 22, more than 225 people attended Israel Bonds’ annual Lila and Jules Stern Premiere Brunch at West Rock in Nanuet. At the brunch, the organization honored 14 women from various synagogues and organizations. The award-winning actress Tovah Feldshuh entertained the crowd with stories of how she grew up in Westchester, and about her career.

More than $6 million dollars of investments and indications of interest were generated at the brunch. After hearing more about Israel Bonds, many first-timers were enthusiastic about investing in the State of Israel.
