More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the philanthropic event, including elected officials, civic figures and community leaders.

"Ambassador Friedman has been a proud supporter of United Hatzalah. Bringing unity to the region through lifesaving is one of the goals and mission of the organization -- something that the Ambassador values as well," said Eli Beer, President and Founder of United Hatzalah. Over the past ten years, the Ambassador has recognized the importance of saving lives in Israel by providing quick treatment by highly trained medical responders.
Following the fundraising success in London and Los Angeles where the organization was able to increase its medical support in various communities throughout Israel, United Hatzalah is excited by the tremendous support they have already received from the New York Community, and are looking forward to hosting its 2nd Annual gala in the Big Apple.
The event will be chaired by United Hatzalah Gala Chairman and supporter Ami Pomeranc, and co-chaired by Mitchell Moinan with performance by Israeli singer Dudu Aharon and hosted by Rona - Lee Shimon, star of the Netflix hit series Fauda.
