Bnai Zion Foundation Mid-Atlantic Region
David Gitlin, of Greenberg Traurig LLP, who received the Distinguished Humanitarian Awardfrom Bnai Zion in November, 2010 serves as the chairman of the board of the Mid-Atlantic region. He commented, “I am impressed with the work Bnai Zion is doing in Israel, particularly at the Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa, an outstanding hospital catering to the northern population. The hospital is urgently in need of funds to build a new protected emergency room, and I am hopeful that our new region will be able to contribute generously to this significant project."
Goals of the Mid-Atlantic region include promoting Bnai Zion and familiarizing the local community with the organization and its work, and raising funds for Bnai Zion projects through events and other outreach programs.
