Friends of the IDF Atlanta Chapter selects Norm Radow to be
honored at its 2013 Gala dinner
Atlanta, GA, April 8, 2013 – The Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) Atlanta Chapter has selected Mr. Norman Radow as the 2013 honoree for its upcoming Gala dinner. The event will take place on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at the Georgia Aquarium, where over 400 guests are expected to attend and show their support for Israel's soldiers.
“I’m proud to announce Mr. Radow as this year’s 2013 honoree for his relentless service to the Atlanta community and for his commitment to the Jewish people and the State of Israel,” said the FIDF Executive Director of the Atlanta Chapter, Caryn Liss.
Mr. Radow established his Atlanta-based company RADCO, one of the most respected and turnaround real estate companies in the United Sates, in 1994. Mr. Radow recently retired as the long term Chairman of the Kennesaw State University Foundation Board of Trustees. He has been an Adjunct Professor of Law at Emory Law School and has lectured at New York Law School. For three years, Mr. Radow was President of the Congregation Etz Chaim, a seven hundred and fifty family synagogue in Atlanta, and active in several other charitable organizations such as JF&CS, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta.
Mr. Radow became involved with FIDF after his son, Neil Radow, joined the IDF in 2012 as a combat soldier in the Artillery Corps. “While my son was serving in the IDF, I noticed how much of a difference FIDF was making in his life and how much support they were providing him as a Lone Soldier,” Radow said. “It was incredible and it made me take notice of the organization. It’s an undeserved honor to be this year’s honoree, but if I can help a soldier in need, it’s really the least that I can do.”
