On Saturday, December 5th, FIDF YL-NY celebrated our Bar Mitzvah at our 13th Annual Gala, the largest Young Leadership event and biggest fundraiser of the year. Close to 1,600 young professionals from every industry - finance, real estate, legal, medical, arts, media, etc. – gathered at Metropolitan Pavilion and joined in celebration.  

This year’s Bar Mitzvah theme lived up to the pre-event excitement and was especially festive, featuring live entertainment and Bar Mitzvah dancers, wax hands, gourmet food and drinks, the Horah and casino-style gambling with over $120,000 in luxury raffle prizes.  The most successful gala yet, we sold out days before and raised over $550,000 for the IDF Iron Trails Brigade.  A special thank you to our fantastic Gala co-chairs, wonderful Gala Committee, and supportive attendees for helping to make the evening such a success!
