American Friends of Rabin Medical Center

AFRMC Gala honors
13th Prime Minister of Israel,
Abraham Foxman and Business Leaders
&
Raises Vital Funds for Hospital in Israel

 

American Friends of Rabin Medical Center (AFRMC) Board President,
A. Mitti Liebersohn (Savills) welcomes guests at the AFRMC Gala on Monday November 6 at The Plaza Hotel

 

Over 350 leaders of New York’s and America’s real estate, finance, technology, and pharmaceutical industries joined together on Monday, November 6, 2023, at The Plaza Hotel in New York City for the American Friends of Rabin Medical Center (AFRMC) 23rd Annual Gala to support saving lives in Israel at Rabin Medical Center, the country’s premier hospital. The hospital is currently treating countless victims and casualties from the October 7 Hamas attack and subsequent Hamas missile attacks around Israel in both their Greater Tel Aviv main campus, and their emergency Annex campus in Eilat, Southern Israel.

AFRMC Board Chair A. Mitti Liebersohn presented Abe Foxman, (Anti-Defamation League, National Director Emeritus) with the Yitzhak Rabin Special Lifetime Achievement Award. Mr. Foxman spoke of the tragic events in Israel with a quote from the Talmud, “The entire world is a narrow bridge; and it is essential not to fear at all.”

Gala Master of Ceremonies – for the sixth year - Magalie Laguerre-Wilkinson VP News Programming, Nickelodeon News opened the evening on a solemn note, holding a moment of silence for the kidnapped and missing Israelis. The evening featured a fireside chat with Ms. Laguerre-Wilkinson and the 13th Prime Minister of Israel, Naftali Bennett, speaking about the current situation in Israel and the importance of emergency readiness at the hospital. The Prime Minister was awarded the Yitzhak Rabin Award of Gratitude for his leadership of the State of Israel and service to the Jewish people.

Mitchell E. Rudin was honored with Yitzhak Rabin Lifetime Real Estate Leadership AwardScott Rechler, was honored with the Yitzhak Rabin Visionary Business & Civic Leadership Award, and Shari Redstone was honored with the Yitzhak Rabin Entertainment & Media Leadership which recognize Rudin, Rechler and Redstone for their “outstanding and expert leadership in their fields and for being trusted partners, loyal friends, and exemplary philanthropists.”

Mr. Foxman presented the award to Mitchell Rudin (Chairman & CEO, Savills North America), who said, “One of the commandments is Thou Shall teach it to your children. After October 6th… what your children or grandchildren might have been thinking about Israel or thinking that antisemitism applied to somebody other than them - Not a Jew in America today doesn't know they cannot avoid that.”  

Seth Pinsky (CEO, 92nd Street Y), presented the award to Scott Rechler (CEO & Chairman, RXR) who elaborated, “As we look to the future of Israel, all of us must redouble our efforts to strengthen our relationships with our allies and build bridges to those who are seeking to create a world consistent with their values. Even if their approach might differ from ours, just like Rabin Medical does as part of their values. We also must reject xenophobia in all corrosive forms.”

Judge Roanne Licht presented the award to Shari Redstone (Chair, Paramount Global and President & CEO, National Amusements) who concluded with, And while these events may have shocked us all, I know that none of us are surprised by the ongoing bravery and resolve demonstrated by the doctors and the entire team at Rabin Medical Center. The Rabin Medical Center has always been a shining example, not just in Israel, but around the world. Indeed, the Center has a long track record of contributing to more effective care for patients wherever and whenever it is needed, from being one of the first international delegations to go to Turkey, to treat earthquake victims, to offering Ukrainian nationals free medical treatment or treating victors of terror in war, in areas of conflict, the Rabin Medical Center's impact has extended far and wide.

Today their focus is on the home front in our hearts, and our prayers are with them. The Rabin Medical Center has long served as a beacon of hope in healing in Israel and around the world. Let us join them in being that beacon of hope.”

 

AFRMC's Gala raised critical funds for emergency medical equipment and supplies for the hospital in Greater Tel Aviv, and a second hospital annex in Eilat to help treat the thousands of displaced injured and traumatized Israelis.

HELP FUND ISRAEL'S RABIN MEDICAL CENTER WITH EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES

 

American Friends of Rabin Medical Center (AFRMC) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable organization that was established in 1995. Through a variety of programs and fundraisers across the United States, AFRMC funds charitable, educational and scientific purposes at Rabin Medical Center. Rabin Medical Center, named after former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, is the pride of Israel, serving the needs of one million patients annually without regard to ethnicity, nationality or religion.
