Midatlantic Region’s 3rd Annual Gala Dinner


On October 23, 2011, the Midatlantic Region’s Third Annual Gala was a great success. Senator Joseph Lieberman was our keynote speaker. We were honored to have our Maryland Senator Benjamin Cardin introduce Senator Joseph Lieberman. Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg of Beth Tfiloh Congregation presented an award to our Gala Honoree Haron Dahan. There were over 750 people at our event. It was a great time for all with delicious food. Hearing our Israeli soldier tell his story and his love for his country Israel was a moving experience for all. It was wonderful to hear a soldier express his great desire to be a part of the Israel Defense Forces.
