Tikkun Olam is a Hebrew phrase and key Jewish belief, which references the shared responsibility to heal, repair and transform the world. The goal of the Presidents Dinner is to bring in world-renowned speakers for a one-of-a-kind experience that will inspire our community with a global message of Tikkun Olam on an intimate level. We accomplish this by making the event accessible to all community members, while at the same time providing Corporate Sponsors the opportunity to gain awareness for their exposure.
Presidents Dinner is held annually between May and June.

More about our Keynote Speaker
FAUDA (Arabic for “chaos”) was created by Raz and Avi Issacharoff and is based on their real-life experiences serving in the Israeli Defense Force’s special forces unit. The Israeli drama, which Netflix picked up in 2016, stars Raz as the commander of a mista’arvim, a commando unit trained to operate undercover in the Palestinian territories. FAUDA became one of Israeli television’s biggest hits when its first season premiered in 2015. The show won six Ophir Awards — the Israeli equivalent of the Emmys — including best drama in 2017.
