NEW YORK – The Friends of the IDF hosted its annual gala fund-raiser in the main ballroom of Manhattan’s Waldorf Astoria hotel on Tuesday night, bringing together prominent New Yorkers, Israeli dignitaries and uniformed soldiers in an event that raised over $27 million for IDF programs and services.

The dinner and reception attracted over 1,400 people, who entered the gilded hotel in black tie attire surrounded by photos of encumbered soldiers serving on the front lines of combat.
