rosh hashana_ben leumi_palo alto_2011Over 100 guests attended IVN’s Rosh Hashanah cocktail reception, generously sponsored by and hosted at Bank Leumi Palo Alto. The wine for the reception was donated by Hagefen. This celebration was an excellent opportunity for the Jewish/Israeli business community of Silicon Valley to mingle and network and become acquainted with the work that IVN is doing in Israel in order to generate sustainable social impact.
The guests were greeted by the CEO of Bank Leumi Palo Alto, Eitan Sapir, after which IVN Chairman, Eric Benhamou, gave a short update on IVN’s activities and progress, followed by Akiva Tor, the Consul General of Israel for the Pacific Northwest region, who wished all present a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
By meeting together, we reinforced the optimism and commitment towards effecting positive change, both individually and as a community.
