Alan Schwartz , President of the New York Region
The Greater New York Region is increasing fundraising in New York, cultivating new board members and expanding its roster of educational and fundraising events.
The growth of our NY region calls for more direct involvement by our members in planning and recruiting for our fundraisers and promoting Bnai Zion in the NY community.
The NY board is committed to supporting Bnai Zion projects in Israel. Consisting of members from the tri-state area, we are looking to increase the scope of volunteer opportunities for board members and greatly enhance our presence in New York. If you are interested in charity work and would enjoy serving on a committee to help plan and promote events and raise funds to benefit our projects, there are many opportunities at Bnai Zion.
We have exciting educational, promotional, fundraising and FUN-raising events scheduled for 2013 - please see our Regional Events page.

Israeli Companies Shine at Bnai Zion Tech Expo

Held in collaboration with Katan Associates International, Bnai Zion welcomed 15 promising Israeli start-up companies who all presented their technology, products and prospects to venture capitalists interested in investing in Israel. Attendees were given access information on the Israeli start-ups, all while fostering a spirit of entrepreneurship, international cooperation and business matchmaking.
Top Entertainers Make a Splash at Comedy Night
On a mild night in May, in conjunction with the New York Hysterical Society, Bnai Zion hosted theJewish Comedy Tour featuring several world-renowned comedians. Bernie Furshpan, a regular on the NY comedy circuit at Caroline’s and Gotham Comedy Club was the MC for the evening. Hard-working comedienne Jessica Kirson - who had just arrived from Los Angeles, where she had appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno - stepped onto the stage and quickly had the crowd in stitches and, at times, blushing. Danny Cohen, another headliner, had hiliarious material that included a discussion about airport procedures that had the audience doubled-over in laughter.
