Charity Events of the Week

The last few weeks have been busy with lots of charity events......

We attended the American Friends of Bet El dinner on Sunday night at the Marriot Marquis honoring our friends Gail and Michael Weisbrod. There are almost 10,000 people in the West Bank of Israel in the Bet El settlement. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bet_El

If not for a bad sore throat today I would have been at the fabulous NYC showroom of Helen Yarmuk for the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding's Fall benefit http://www.ffeu.org/ . My dear friend Rabbi Marc Schneier is the co-founder along with Russell Simmons. I am sure it was a beautiful event especially from Helen's fabulous showroom with a terrace overlooking Central Park for miles and miles. I wonder if Kimora Lee was there again?? She was honored at the last event and read her acceptance speech from a swarovski bejeweled Blackberry. How fabulous can one person be???

Thursday night is a benefit for The Jerusalem Foundation at Eden Art Gallery in NYC. http://jerusalemfoundation.org/english/home.php

Time to walk the dog and go to sleep......
