Our gala event features a savory reception followed by the moving and gripping stories of two inspiring Israeli Heroes:

ABOUT LIOR RAZ

LIOR RAZ is an Israeli actor and screenwriter best known for creating the political thriller Fauda.  In 2014, Raz together with Avi Issacharoff, created the critically acclaimed thriller series Fauda, in which Raz stars as Doron Kavillio, the commander of an undercover counter-terrorism Mista’arvim unit. In 2016, Fauda won six awards, including Best Drama Series, at the Israeli Academy Awards. In December 2017, The New York Times selected Fauda as the best international show of the year. In 2018, the show won 11 Israeli TV Academy Awards, including best TV drama, best actor for Raz, and best screenplay, casting, cinematography, recording, and special effects.

ABOUT ZIV SHILON

ZIV SHILON is the “stuff legends are made of”!  Captain Ziv Shilon led his troops into Gaza in 2012.  After an IED exploded next to him and blew off one arm and almost completely severed another, Ziv lay unconscious for four days, his life hanging in the balance. He underwent eight operations to reconstruct his arm, receiving 52 units of blood, more than eight times the amount circulating in the human body. Over the next 6 years, he overcame self-doubt to achieve the impossible completing 3 marathons, an Iron Man competition, starting a successful hi-tech business, and most importantly being a loving husband and father to his wife, daughter and son.

Ezer Mizion is Israel’s largest health support provider with over a dozen services and programs throughout Israel. Through its services, Ezer Mizion reaches over 750,000 people annually.

The crown jewel of the organization is the Ezer Mizion Bone Marrow Registry, the largest Jewish registry in the world with nearly 1 million potential bone marrow donors. The size of the registry allows the organization to facilitate over 30 lifesaving bone marrow transplants every month of the year in Israel, Canada and around the world. As of September 1st, 2019, Ezer Mizion has saved 57 lives in Canada and 3,263 worldwide!
