Men's Event Breaks Records (again!)

On Wednesday, November 20th the Jewish Federation of San Diego County’s Men’s Event, which was underwritten by the Mizel Family Foundation, took place at the famous Del Mar Fairgrounds.  With close to 1,000 men in attendance, this year's event broke previous records as the largest gathering of Jewish men in San Diego!  

Former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, wowed those in attendance with an impassioned talk on Jewish peoplehood and the importance of community.  The food, which even included multiple carving stations, was spectacular with catering provided by Crown Kosher Catering of Los Angeles.  We would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the over 100 table captains who filled the hall with nearly 1,000 philanthropists.

Special recognition is due to the event co-chairs Daniel Ellman, Ira Feinswog, Jack Maizel, and Ron Zollman who worked tirelessly for months to make Wednesday night a success.  Another very special thank you is due to our generous underwriter Steve Mizel without whom this free community event would not have been possible.

Some of the photos from this excellent event are up on our Facebook, feel free to tag your friends, and stay tuned for more great pictures next week!
