Isaac Herzog to Inform, Inspire at Sandler Family Major Gifts Event
Hundreds of prominent Jewish philanthropists will gather for an elegant and inspiring evening at the annual Sandler Family Major Gifts Event on December 5. Named for Phyllis & Harvey Sandler and family and celebrating Major Donors to the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County’s 2020 Annual Campaign, this longstanding premier event in local Jewish philanthropy will begin at 6:30 pm at The Polo Club in Boca Raton.
Keynoting the evening will be Jewish world leader Isaac Herzog, who succeeded Natan Sharansky as Chair of the Jewish Agency for Israel in 2018 after fifteen years as a legendary member of the Knesset and several ministerial posts. He is also the son of General Chaim Herzog, the sixth President of Israel, and the grandson of Rabbi Yitzhak HaLevi Herzog, the first Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel.
“We are honored to offer our vital major donors this unique opportunity to hear Mr. Herzog at this pivotal time in Israel,” said Barbara Werner, who is co-chairing the event with her husband, Donald, and with Dale and Edward Filhaber. “Together, we will learn as well as celebrate with our philanthropic peers who share our passions and values.”
