On the evening of Sunday, April 15, 2018, in the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City, we celebrated the extraordinary philanthropy of Dr. Miriam & Sheldon G. Adelson, recipients of the Guardians of the Jewish Future Award.

On this very special occasion, we also heard from our Founders and leaders from the Birthright Israel family, all who beautifully articulated the incredible impact of this program and the responsibility we as a community have to ensure the Jewish future. All of our alumni who joined us and shared their story proved that this gift has changed their lives forever thanks to the generosity of the Jewish community.
