On November 20th, 2016 the NCFJE hosted their 76th Annual Awards Dinner at Manhattan’s stunning Edison Hotel Ballroom. Prominent New York-based real estate developer Jacob Frydman who was invited to attend the event as Guest of Honor has come out in strong support of the organization’s mission and programs and offered to donate to the organization’s work in the Jewish community. The real estate mogul, a frequent guest on major news networks, punctuated his enthusiastic support of the NCFJE with a pledge of $180,000. The room was electrified by Frydman’s announcement and his commitment to charity, philanthropy, and kindness.
In a recorded statement, Jacob Frydman praised the organization’s flagship Jewish Released Time Program, which sends hundreds of volunteers across metropolitan New York to teach Jewish public school students. “Find me another organization that mobilizes, literally, an army of young men and women… to engage Jewish children all over metro New York, week after week…” He also praised the Machon LeYahadus, the organization’s advanced Jewish Studies program for women, which he called “forward thinking” and “ground breaking”. “The National Committee was decades ahead of the rest of the Jewish world, to recognize that there were young ladies, and many of them… thirsting for that knowledge.”
