      2019 Bel Air Affaire

      A Rat Pack Tribute & A Humanitarian Torch of Learning

      Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and the sights and swinging sounds of vintage Las Vegas greeted American Friends of the Hebrew University guests on Saturday, September 14, 2019, when the 11th Annual Bel Air Affaire took place on the estate of Ron Burkle. “The Kings of Cool” serenaded 225 guests and “started spreading the news” with a Rat Pack Tribute performance featuring the music of Frank, Dean, and Sammy.

      American Friends from AFHU’s Western Region were welcomed by President of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Professor Asher Cohen, who brought greetings from Israel, and Student Ambassador, Shai Deutsch.

      AFHU’s Humanitarian Torch of Learning Award honored the memory of dear friends, Phyllis and Lloyd Berkett (z”l), who provided inspiring leadership in support of Hebrew University and the State of Israel. Accepting the award were family members Martha and Barry Berkett. This extraordinary evening raised close to $2 million for student scholarships at the Hebrew University.
