The 2018 ELEM Ray of Hope Gala is going to be a beautiful night at the New York Academy of Medicine, a historic building with old-world elegance. The evening once again will be hosted by the always entertaining radio personality, Noam Laden, and we have quite an outstanding program lined up. This year we have the distinct privilege of paying honor to two remarkable people, the Honorable Fernando Cabrera, New York City Councilman and Lisa Lippman of Brown Harris Stevens, one of New York’s and America’s most successful real estate agents. Plus we have a very special musical performance by the incredible Peter Yarrow from the iconic group Peter, Paul and Mary. The evening is jam packed with heartfelt videos, engaging conversation, enticing raffles and a special auction.

Join us in helping youths and young adults move Off the Streets and On To Life!

Your support for the Ray of Hope Gala allows ELEM to provide annual aid to over 122,000 of Israel’s most vulnerable youths from every faith and ethnicity, including members of the LGBTQ community. No one is ever rejected from ELEM. The funds raised at the Gala and throughout the year go to support ELEM’s 82 different programs in 42 different cities and towns across Israel. We need your help to avoid having to make devastating cuts to our programs.

Show Israeli youth that you understand that they are the 💚 of Israel. You can do this by joining us at the Gala and buying an ad in our online journal. You can include a link to your business and it will remain live on our site for a full year. It’s also a great way to honor friends and family!

Buying raffle tickets for a chance to win exciting prizes is another way to keep the 💚 of Israel beating. Check www.elemgala.org frequently, as we will be adding prizes in the coming weeks.

You can buy raffles online, by phone or in person at the Gala on September 27.

I look forward to greeting you at the Gala and thanking you personally for your generous support.

With your help, we can get troubled Israeli youths Off the Streets and On To Life.
