      Successful 2019 Jerold S. Solovy Torch of Learning Dinner Honors Marshall E. Eisenberg

      American Friends of the Hebrew University (AFHU) hosted the Jerold S. Solovy Torch of Learning Award Dinner at the Ritz-Carlton on September 22, 2019. The event attracted 340 guests and paid tribute to Marshall E. Eisenberg, founding partner of Neal Gerber Eisenberg, for his professional achievements and dedication to leadership, scholarship, and humanitarianism.

      $600,000 was raised in support of students at the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Hebrew University’s Faculty of Law, one of the top-ranked law schools in the world,  is the oldest and most prestigious law school in Israel and is the flagship of legal education and research in the entire county. Faculty of Law students from Hebrew University have gone on to be Presidents of the State of Israel, Presidents of the Supreme Court of Israel, Knesset members, Supreme Court justices, Attorneys General, legal academics and attorneys in prominent global law firms.

      We thank Marshall and JoAnne Eisenberg, all of our Dinner Co-Chairs, Dinner Committee Members and guests for making this event possible.  And, of course, a very special “thank you” to Kathleen Hart Solovy, who has kept Jerold Solovy’s legacy of humanitarianism and philanthropy alive through her own incredible support of Hebrew University.
