East Village, NYC, Dec. 23 , 2019- More than 75 Young Leaders (ages 21-39) from the Tri-State area gathered in the East Village on Monday for JOIN Israel’s “Latke & Vodka Fundraiser” led by JOINs Young Leadership Chapter. The funds raised will go toward JOIN Israel’s Education Projects. Projects include libraries, computer labs, science labs and educational enrichment for underfunded elementary and middle schools in Israel. The event included latkes, sufganiyot, and an open vodka bar including the signature drink, gelty pleasure. There was a candle lighting ceremony performed by Young Leadership Board Member Moti Iluz. A speech was made by Alex Schieber, Director of Development. “Growing up with libraries and computers easily accessible, we take for granted these tools that help us succeed. Our investment into the next generation of Israelis will be a gift this Hanukah that lifts these children out of poverty.”
