The 2013 National “Heart of Jerusalem” Dinner took place on November 20, 2013, at The Pierre in New York City.

Dr. Abraham I Naymark received the Jerusalem Humanitarian Award; Rose and Wolfgang Rauner were presented with the Keter Yerushalayim Award; and Abbey Handelsman Chill and Steven G. Chill with the Patrons of Medicine Award.  Noah Adelsberg and Yossi Ruben, both of whom are students at Yeshiva University’s Sy Syms School of Business, received the Chesed Leadership Award.

Special guest Jon Voight, who was nominated for four Academy Awards and won an Oscar for his role in “Coming Home” and three Golden Globe Awards for “Midnight Cowboy,” “Coming Home” and “Runaway Train,” delighted attendees with his strong declarations of support for Israel and the Jewish people.

We were saddened  by the news that our good friend Dr. Abraham Naymark passed away.  At his funeral we all reflected on the amazing life he led and the enormous impact he made on so many worthy causes.  May his incredible legacy of giving be a model for us all to follow.
