20TH ANNIVERSARY GALA

The Israel Air Force Center Foundation (IAFCF) celebrated its historic 20th Anniversary National Gala aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City on Thursday evening, June 7, 2012.

The gala honored prominent Americans and long-time supporters of the IAFCF, including the founders of the IAF Center in Israel: Major General (Retired) David Ivry, recipient of the IAFCF Lifetime Leadership Award,  Mrs. Aviva & Mr. Yehochai Schneider, recipients of the IAFCF Lifetime Leadership Award, Dr. Miriam and Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson, Chairman of the Board and CEO, Las Vegas Sands Corporation, recipients of the Power of Partnership Award, Mr. Kenneth Fisher, Chairman of Fisher House Foundation and Senior Partner, Fisher Brothers, recipient of the Power of Partnership Award, Mr. Al Berg & Dr. David Tarica, Event Chair and Event Development Chair

Event Host, Academy Award Winner, Jon Voight, welcomed over 700 supporters from the USA and Israel, celebrating “The Power of Partnership” between the IAF Center in Israel and its dedicated supporters in the United States. This special Gala was celebrated on the anniversary of the historic IAF attack on the nuclear reactor in Iraq on June 7, 1981.

Throughout the evening, distinguished speakers paid tribute to the IAFCF’s accomplishments, among them Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, IAF Commander Major General Amir Eshel, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, 107th Mayor of New York, H.E. Mr. Ron Prosor, Ambassador of Israel to the United Nations and Rabbi Arthur Schneier, Spiritual Leader of the Park East Synagogue, New York City. International singer and songwriter Liel Kolet provided the entertainment throughout the evening.

This inaugural event created a strong foundation for the future of the organization in the USA and its continued support of the programs and activities of the IAF Center. The Israel Air Force Center Foundation in the USA represents and works on behalf of the Israel Air Force Center in Israel. The IAF Center is a vibrant hub of Israel‘s finest thinkers and decorated veterans, with a comprehensive understanding of the requisite needs to sustain aerial security as well as to break new frontiers in aviation and space technology. It is this incredible source of knowledge and achievement which the Center uses to train, educate and inspire Israeli youth with the purpose of setting their ambitions towards being exemplary leaders and soldiers, working to build a stronger nation through the National Center for Leadership and Character Development

In his recorded message to the gala participants, PM Netanyahu said: “Following 64 years of independence, Israel existence is still threatened, as well as the wellbeing of the world Jewry.” PM Netanyahu commended the IAF Center for its innovative aeronautical studies and youth leadership development program, and thanked the IAFCF

supporters for demonstrating their unity and partnership for the achievements reached thus far.

In his address as keynote speaker, Mayor Giuliani reiterated the fact that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and therefore the only true ally of the United States in the region. Mayor Giuliani encouraged event attendees to visit Israel and praised the crowd for their support of the IAF Center, which strengthens Israel’s future.

The Israel Air Force Center Foundation is a non-profit, 501c3, non-military organization that provides ongoing support and sustains the IAF Center activities in Israel. The IAFCF is headquartered in Herzliya, Israel and maintains its U.S. Office in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. For more information, visit http://www.iafc-foundation.org/.
