At the inaugural Values Network Gala on June 4, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach will be honoring Holocaust survivor Professor Elie Wiesel, renowned philanthropists Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson and influential health advocate Dr. Mehmet Oz for their outstanding work as champions for Jewish and human values. Proceeds from the dinner, to be held at the New York Marriot Marquis, will benefit Israel’s Rambam Medical Center and American Friends of Rambam Medical Center.
“Rambam is committed to spreading universal Jewish values by delivering the highest standards of health care for everyone,” said Prof. Rafi Beyar, CEO and director general of the Rambam Medical Center. Located in Haifa, Rambam is a full-service academic hospital that serves over two million residents of northern Israel – one third of Israel’s population. “We treat all of Israel’s residents, regardless of religion or background, with thorough and compassionate care,” Beyar explained. “At Rambam, developing cutting edge innovations and advancing medical research also are among our top priorities.”
Rabbi Boteach, executive director of the organization This World: The Values Network, will give the keynote address. The organization, which aims to bring Jewish values to mainstream culture, will honor Prof. Wiesel as a “Champion of the Jewish Spirit,” the Adelsons as “Champions of Jewish Identity,” and Dr. Oz as a “Champion of the Jewish Value of Life.”
“We are thrilled to be supporting Rambam Hospital,” Rabbi Boteach said, adding, “Rambam exemplifies Jewish values by being an international leader in patient care, medical research and technological innovations.”
