The American Society for Yad Vashem 2017 Annual Tribute Dinner

The American Society for Yad Vashem (ASYV) held their 2017 Annual Tribute Dinner on Sunday, November 12th at The Pierre in New York City. With over six hundred attendees, this year’s Tribute Dinner raised record-setting support for Yad Vashem.  As part of the event an appeal was made for additional donations towards unique educational programs with the Israel Defense Forces.

Leonard Wilf, ASYV Chairman opened the dinner by announcing the creation of the Eli Zborowski Legacy Circle.  Co-Chairing this year's dinner were Rita Levy and Mark Moskowitz along with dinner chair emeritus, Marilyn Rubenstein. Over 100 members of the younger generation attended the dinner.

The theme of this year’s dinner, “Carry the Torch,” spoke to the importance of Holocaust education and keeping the next generation involved and committed to Holocaust remembrance. The four honorees, Robert H. Book, Amy A. Book, Abbi Halpern and Barry L. Levine, fully exemplify what it means to be committed to this mission. Robert H. Book and Amy A. Book received the Yad Vashem Leadership Award, which Robert Book accepted on behalf of his family. Abbi Halpern and Barry L. Levine, the former co-chairs of the Young Leadership Associates (YLA), received the Yad Vashem Young Leadership Award.
