In Sam’s words: “As the grandson of a prominent U.S. rabbi, I learned the value of treating others the way you want to be treated.  Through LEAD, I hope to build relationships with a diverse pool of leaders who are passionate about the common cause of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  I want my participation to help the university and Israel as well as create new business opportunities. My own real estate management business is built on the strength of relationships and I hope to develop my network of potential partners and investors.”
