Israel’s United Nations Ambassador Gabriela Shalev, an international expert on contract law,
academic president and professor, as well as award-winning author, served as the Keynote Speaker at American Friends of The Hebrew University’s Seventh Annual Scholarship Brunch, held December 13 at the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach.
            The Ambassador, Israel’s fourteenth permanent representative to the United Nations and the first woman appointed to this post, was interviewed at the brunch by Claire Shipman, senior national correspondent for ABC News. 
            Prior to her appointment to the UN, Ambassador Shalev served as president of the Academic Council and Rector of Ono Academic College in Israel. She is considered an international expert in contract law and procurements and has taught at The Hebrew University as well as others across the United States, Europe and Canada.  In addition, the Ambassador has provided legal opinions for the Supreme Court of Israel, received numerous law awards, authored nine books and has provided audit expertise for major corporations in Israel.
Ms. Shipman, who regularly serves as a substitute anchor for both "Good Morning America" and the weekend edition of the morning broadcast, has interviewed former Vice President Dick Cheney, Queen Rania of Jordan, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as presidential candidates and political leaders. Shipman has reported from Iraq, where she spent time with former U.S. Ambassador L. Paul Bremer. She was part of the team that covered the 2008 presidential election for ABC News and also continues to report on various news stories affecting the lives of Americans around the country.
            Chairing the brunch were Roberta and Stanley Bogen, Sherry and Kenneth Endelson, Roberta and Paul Kozloff, Laurie Silvers and Mitchell Rubenstein.  Honorary Chairs were Dini Katz and Dr. Maria Spinak.
            Attending the brunch were: Diane Belfer, Phyllis Gurwin, Barbara and Morton Mandel, Violet Werner, Lois and Martin Zelman, Mickey and Larry Beyer, Marjorie and Robert Emden, Barbara and Clive Kabatznik, Ellen and H. Irwin Levy and Susan and Darrell Ross.
            “This event raises funds for scholarships to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which has a student body of 23,000 and a faculty of 1,000 on four campuses which attracts students from Israel as well as 70 countries around the world,” reported Roberta Bogen.
According to Mrs. Bogen, The Hebrew University in Jerusalem is a vital link for those dedicated to supporting Israel.
“Hearing from the Ambassador, especially within the context of a one-on-one interview conducted by such a talented journalist, provided an invaluable perspective to the challenges facing Israel today and in the future.”
The American Friends of Hebrew University will present the 2010 Scopus Awards Gala on Jan. 30th at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach.  Barbara and Richard Rothschild are serving as chairmen of the event, honoring Lois and Martin Zelman.  The evening will include dancing and musical entertainment, “The Best of Broadway.”  Proceeds from the Gala will provide scholarships to The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
More information on AFHU and the Gala is available by calling Monica Loebl at 800.899.2348 or at
