On Thursday, May 27th, 2017, distinguished guests attended a glamorous event held by the American Friends of OR Movement at the Russian Tea Room in New York City with more than 140 patrons, including the Board members and our World Leadership Council.
The evening began with an impressive cocktail party that included cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, a seated dinner, and a live auction for some of New York’s most successful supporters. Following the cocktail hour, Israeli supermodel Adi Neumann moderated an emotional and inspiring program.
The show was highlighted by a spectacular musical performance from renowned pianist Dr. Astrith Baltsan, of her famed composition Hatikvah: Hope Reborn, based on revolutionary research that delves into the surprising storied history and significance of Israel’s national anthem.
A fitting piece, characterizing the message and reason behind the establishment of the OR Movement. Ofir Fisher, Vice President of OR, addressed the crowd conveying the OR Movement mission of hope and opportunity for the young generation and for Israel to grow in a healthy and sustainable way through the development of the Negev and Galilee.
