The Men’s Event (Underwritten by the Mizel Family Foundation)
September 29, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm UTC-7
The Jewish Federation of San Diego County is pleased to announce that The Men’s Event 2016, which is underwritten by the Mizel Family Foundation, will be held on September 29, 2016, at the San Diego Jewish Academy in La Jolla, California at 8:00 PM.
This year’s keynote speaker is the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist for The Wall Street Journal, Bret Stephens. Stephens writes “Global View,” the Wall Street Journal’s foreign-affairs column, for which he won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize. He is the paper’s deputy editorial page editor and a member of its editorial board. Previously, he was editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post, a position he assumed in 2002 at age 28. He has reported stories from around the world and interviewed scores of world leaders, including every Israeli Prime Minister since Shimon Peres.
The Men’s Event is the largest annual gathering of Jewish men in San Diego, known for bringing in a new dynamic and exciting speakers for a wonderful evening of great food, global change, and powerful company.
The event will be a departure from the past and will be held on the Jewish Academy’s outdoor field and will feature fantastic kosher barbecue, and craft beers to accompany a night or brotherhood and philanthropy.
The Men’s Event is an opportunity for Federation to demonstrate to the public how its mission is changing lives in San Diego, in Israel, and around the world. Whether it is continuing to provide life-saving food and medicine for displaced people in Ukraine’s civil war, sending children to Jewish summer camps, providing free Jewish education to more than 3,500 children in our community alone, Federation, its partners, and its amazing team of volunteers, are working every day to mobilize our Jewish community.
This year’s event chairs are David Bark, Michael Cohen, and Jon Schwartz. All are welcome to join for an unforgettable night of brotherhood and philanthropy, strengthening our Jewish community.
