Some 150 New York’s real estate professionals gathered for the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) New York Real Estate Division Eighth Annual Golf Outing to support FIDF well-being and educational programs for IDF soldiers.
The July 8 event at Glen Oaks Country Club honored the Meridian Capital Group, one of the nation’s most prominent commercial real estate finance, investment sales, and retail leasing advisors.
“FIDF is an exceptional organization that has made a lasting and meaningful impact on generations of soldiers, veterans, and their loved ones,” said Ralph Herzka, chairman and CEO of Meridian Capital Group. “We are proud of FIDF’s work and pleased to be a part of this annual event.”
The FIDF New York Real Estate Division was created in 2006 by a group of successful business and philanthropic leaders who were passionate about uniting members of the real estate community to support the men and women who protect and defend the Jewish State. Since then, this division has helped support several projects. The Real Estate Division plays a central role in the activities of the FIDF TriState Region.
“We are amazed by the remarkable support from the New York real estate community,” said Jessica Toledano, FIDF Affinity Groups division director. “It is so wonderful for our supporters to take a day to enjoy golf, tennis, and – most importantly – meet the soldiers who defend Israel and Jews worldwide.”
