On November 10, Israel Bonds New Jersey hosted its annual “Spectacular”; it was online this year. It honored Louis Lasalle, RWJBH’s senior vice president for corporate external affairs, with its Maimonides award; Ira Robbins, president and CEO of Valley Bank, with the Shimon Peres Leadership award; and Rachel Braun Scherl, managing partner and co-founder of Spark Solutions for Growth with the Golda Meir award. More than 300 people attended and the event raised more than $50 million dollars in sales and indications of interest. When they were asked if they’d like to postpone the fundraiser because of the pandemic, all the honorees agreed to go virtual so they could raise funds to support the State of Israel. Modi, a comedian and actor, emceed the event, interacting with both honorees and the other guests.
