Nirim, an organization that provides high-risk youth with an opportunity to overcome their harsh life circumstances, held a gala dinner in New York this week under the leadership of Yoram Sagy. 
 
Nirim works together with the Navy Commando Unit known as Shayetet 13 and works to help youth  discover their strengths, and become self-confident and successful members of society. Nirim changes the lives of about 600 teens a year.
 
The organization runs the Nirim Youth Village located on the northern shore of Israel which is a unique residential setting for 100 at-risk youths aged 14 -18. The Nirim Track is a highly intensive program for youth removed from their families by the Office of Youth Protection Authority or referred  by the Juvenile Court as an alternative to jail.
 
“Nirim is a place where youth learn to become an integral part of society and help lead it,” Sagy, who also serves as CEO of the Central Bottling Company, said. 
 
The evening was hosted by comedian Elon Gold and was attended some 200 people, including former IDF general Yossi Peled and the deputy consul general in New York Nitzan Yisrael.
