Migdal Ohr, an Israeli organization that helps underprivileged, orphaned, abused, and new immigrant children, will hold its annual gala dinner on Wednesday, April 29, at the IAC building at 555 West 18th Street in Manhattan. This year’s gala-its largest annual fundraiser-will honor supporters who have contributed to the organization’s success over its 42-year history.
Nancy and Tzvi Fishman of New York City and Teaneck are guests of honor, and Laurie and Todd Scherzer of New York City are the Young Leadership Couple of the Year.
The evening will 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 Dr. Belle Rosenbaum, z”l, who lived in Monsey. She and her late husband, Cantor Jacob Rosenbaum, were among the founders of the American Friends of Migdal Ohr.
In addition, five teens who have participated in the bar and bat mitzvah twinning program will be honored for sharing their b’nai mitzvah with students at Migdal Ohr to help mark their Israeli peers’ special days.
Allison and Michael Bromberg and Jordana and Adam Grunfeld, all of New York City, and Mindy and Steven Fink of Woodmere, N.Y., are the gala co-chairs.
