On Wednesday, March 9, Mei Sze and Jeff Greene hosted Birthright Israel Foundation’s annual Palm Beach event for an awe-inspiring evening celebrating the impact of the classic 10-day educational experience. Our Palm beach supporters were excited to hear from Jeff Greene on the importance of education for today’s youth and Jewish young adults and a Birthright Israel update from the Palm Beach chair Ronnie Pertnoy. Guests were joined by three alums, educator and performer Courtney Simmons Demri, pro-Israel activist and social media influencer Jordyn Tilchen and Disney+ host and best-selling author Arel Moodie. Each of them shared how the 10-day journey transformed their connection to their Jewish identity, the land and people of Israel, and their current professional lives in ways they never dreamed of.


Lastly, the evening ended on a spectacular note, thanks to Birthright Israel co-founder Charles Bronfman. Charles spontaneously called upon the Palm Beach community to come together and raise the necessary funds to send an entire Birthright Israel group to honor Jeff Greene. Within minutes, the community rallied behind Charles to honor Jeff and all he does on behalf of Palm Beach and the Jewish people.
