Kicking off the 2014 Men's Event Featuring Michael Oren

On Wednesday evening, the 2014 Men’s Event, which is underwritten by the Mizel Family Foundation, got off to a great start with a Table Captain Kickoff Party at Mission Brewery in downtown San Diego. Over 60 men attended the kickoff enjoying some of the best craft beer in San Diego and delicious kosher catering by Felicia G. Federation Board Chair Theresa Dupuis spoke to the Table Captains about Federation’s past successes and vision moving forward. Event Co-Chairs Ira Feinswog, Jack Maizel, Ron Zollman, and Daniel Ellman addressed those in attendance - both educating attendees about the important role of a table captain and making the case for everyone to support the work of Federation. The biggest news of the night came when event underwriter Steve Mizel announced that New York Times Best Selling Author and Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Men’s Event.

Michael Oren is an American born Israeli author, historian, and Ambassador to the United States. He is the author of numerous books including two New York Times best-sellers: Power, Faith, and Fantasy and the masterful Six Days of War. Ambassador Oren has been a visiting professor at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown and has a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University. He has been named of the of the five most influential American Jews by Forward and the Jerusalem Post named him of the world’s ten most influential Jews. We are both honored and thrilled to welcome such a distinguished guest to San Diego!

We're excited about the upcoming event on November 20th, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.  Stay turned for more information - and be sure to check out great pictures of the kickoff here!
