The event highlighted the generous support of the philanthropists in attendance who have significantly impacted the Jewish community.

“Let’s give current and future generations the future they deserve,” Berg said at the dinner, held Feb. 27, 2014. “Let’s give them a way to not just dream big, but act on their dreams.”

Guest speaker Martin Fletcher, a five-time Emmy award winner and former NBC Israel correspondent, discussed his experiences as a Jew growing up in post-war England and living in Israel and as a global journalist.
