Brothers & Sisters for Israel Dinner Benefit

October 21, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$108

TO CONFIRM YOUR RSVP, PLEASE DONATE A MINIMUM OF $108 WITH THE COMMENT “TRIBECA 10/21” at https://www.aid-coalition.org/donate/brothersandsistersforisrael Donations will be matched up to $50k thanks to an anonymous donor. All food and drinks have been generously covered so that donations go directly to BSI. ******* This past Friday night, we activated NYC’s young Jewish community to come together for Shabbat dinner. Collectively, we raised $87,000 for the FIDF and are still calculating how much we raised via additional matches. Next Saturday we are doing it again. This time at a different venue with Bret Stephens as our featured speaker. Proceeds for this event will go to *Brothers and Sisters for Israel (BSI)*. After extensive research through friends on the ground, we feel this is the most immediate way to get supplies to the places that need them most. ******* BSI is a group of 20k active reservists, mostly from Tel Aviv’s tech community, that have mobilized the main civilian response to Israel’s war efforts. They helped identify most missing civilians before the government was able to early last week, relocate impacted families with new housing, and are now procuring and distributing critical supplies (medical supplies, tactical equipment, food). We chose to raise funds for BSI because they are the most active, fast-moving group we’ve found that is consolidating the various Venmo/GoFundMe drives for individual IDF units circulating recently. Rather than raise and allocate funds to separate initiatives ourselves, we feel that BSI knows how to do this best. We’ve seen the startup offices turned into warehouses or mass kitchens on Zoom and are inspired by their work. https://www.brothersandsistersforisrael.org/ For any questions, reach out to any of the hosts: Josh Kadden | Gaby Goldberg | Ryan Daniels | Dan Fine | Matt Schkolnick | Nate Rosen | Brian Sirgutz | Seth Rosenberg | Dylan Itzikowitz | Ben Futoriansky | Kayla Menkes | Jenny Fielding | Ron Miasnik | Adam Low | Cole Rotman | Aviv Lazar | Britt Levy | Sigalit Perelson
