On January 24th-26, I attended the annual National Board of Directors meeting for the State of Israel Bonds. The two day event included participating in the National Board meeting, where I had the privilege of meeting with Israel’s Deputy Finance Minister Mickey Levi (see photo).

Also included was a private and limited invitation dinner with Israel’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Ron Prosor, who I had the honor of introducing as the key note speaker (see photo). The Ambassador, as usual, gave a fascinating and clairvoyant talk on the current events of the Middle East and what is going on within the United Nations in response to these events.

The last event was the gala dinner where several important leaders from Canada and the United States were honored for their outstanding contribution to the Israel Bond Organization. The dinner’s Master of Ceremonies was Paul Riser who entertained the audience with wonderful jokes and very emotional and touching personal stories. Deputy Finance Minister Mickey Levi gave the key note address.

The dinner was the culmination of hard work by the honorees, the Board of Directors and the entire Israel Bond organization staff and resulted in a record breaking sale of over $250 million in Israel Bond sales! Needless to say, this achievement was certainly awe-inspiring!
