Celebrating Diversity & Culture
Each year, B’nai B’rith International recognizes the humanitarian and philanthropic efforts of key community and corporate leaders from around the world. We understand that doing well in business comes with a responsibility to do well in the community. And we seek out companies and their leaders who understand that giving back should be a vital component of any corporations’ mandate and vision.
Further, we selected Dinesh Paliwal, president and chief executive officer of HARMAN, to receive a Distinguished Achievement Award, at a dinner reception in New York City in October.
In addition, Michael Federmann, chairman of the board of Federmann Enterprises Ltd., received our 2017 Distinguished Humanitarian Award, which recognizes individuals who have demonstrated dynamic leadership through a commitment to philanthropy and to the communities they serve. This is the first time we have honored someone with this award in Israel. Federmann received the award during a dinner reception on Nov. 8 at the Dan Hotel in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
We concluded the Tree of Life fundraising campaign and received many tributes from supporters around the globe.
This year’s winning books are available for a free download on the iTunes bookstore and on the B’nai B’rith website.
You can listen to a contest winner read her book and watch the inspiring words of our keynote speaker, award-winning illustrator Shadra Strickland, who spoke about her path to becoming a published illustrator, and the importance of perseverance, here.
