Event Recap

2018 New York Tribute Dinner

The dinner, planned as a night of gratitude to mark the Museum’s 25th anniversary, became a solemn reflection on the antisemitic massacre at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. The 450 attendees joined Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, in a moment of silence for the victims.

“The history we tell is more relevant today than ever before,” remarked Sara J. Bloomfield, the Museum’s director. “But we can only heed its warning if we are listening.”

The dinner raised $4 million for the Museum’s campaign, Never Again: What You Do Matters. The Elie Wiesel Award, the Museum’s highest honor, was presented to Holocaust survivors from the greater New York area for their courage and resilience, and for inspiring the global movement for Holocaust remembrance and education.

Museum Chairman Howard M. Lorber received the Museum’s National Leadership Award for his remarkable leadership and profound commitment to ensuring the Museum’s global impact as a living memorial to the Holocaust. The evening concluded with renowned soprano Mary Millben performing “God Bless America,” evoking Jessye Norman’s performance of the same song 25 years earlier at the Museum’s dedication ceremony.

Thank you to our dedicated chairs, co-chairs, and our entire dinner committee for their inspiring leadership and support.
