Bank Hapoalim will celebrate 40 years of operating in the US with an event at the New York Museum of Natural History on April 28.

The bank has branches in New York, Miami and California and focuses mainly on midsize companies. It provides a variety of financial products for things such as real estate, international trade credit, cash management and working capital.

Among the guests will be former president Shimon Peres.

Israeli media reported on Sunday that Peres had agreed to become a lobbyist for the bank for a fee of $30,000 a month.

The Jerusalem Post could not independently verify the report.

Peres was hospitalized Monday after not feeling well, according to organizers of a haredi hi-tech conference where he was supposed to speak.
