What an incredible summer for One Israel Fund, and it’s not even close to being over! During the past six weeks, over 600 people came out in support of One Israel Fund at our annual Summer Barbecue and Fine Israeli Wine Tasting events in West Hempstead, Englewood, Great Neck, and the Five Towns. An incredible thanks to each of our hosts, Sharon & Alan Shulman, the Gontownik Family, Shira & Dr. Benjy Neren, and Naomi & Mark Rubin, for all their hard work and for opening their homes and their beautiful yards.

Significant funds were raised to help support the communities and residents living throughout Judea and Samaria – our Biblical Heartland. Eve Harow, director of tourism and education, and Marc Provisor, director of security projects for One Israel Fund, were both able to join from Israel at the events, and hearing from them was a fortuitous opportunity for all those in attendance. In addition, guests heard from an array of speakers, including One Israel Fund president Jacqui Herman and executive vice president Scott M. Feltman, as well as Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman and Great Neck Mayor Dr. Pedram Bral.

Those in attendance learned about the vitally important projects One Israel Fund provides each and every year to help support these families in the areas of preventive security equipment, as well as medical, education, recreation and community development needs. Eve and Jacqui spoke passionately about the nascent Women’s Division of One Israel Fund which will be hosting its opening event on Thursday, September 7.

The incredible array of barbecue fare, presented by our caterers Maine Event/Mauzone, Esprit, and Graze, as well as the wonderful Israeli wine tasting by Royal Wines and Spruce D’Vine, helped make this year’s events our most successful ever.
