25th Anniversary Gala

JOIN Israel experienced that moment when we hit the quarter-century mark – and we hit it with a bang! Hundreds joined together for a night full of celebration, kosher food, drinks and like-minded individuals. The gala was held at the renowned Institute of Culinary Education in Brookfield Place, New York City.

25 years is a milestone. We took a moment to look back on how we started, how much we’ve accomplished and recognized those who’ve gotten us there. As well as a moment to look to JOIN’s future and meet the next challenge.

In a special award presentation, we saluted the two decades of all-out leadership. and generosity of our Honorees Rick Smilow and Neil Wessan. We also recognized the generosity of Joel Greenblatt, Daniel Nir, Theta ZBT UPenn and the contributions of Gala Dinner Chair and supporter Jeffrey Goldberg.
