Event Recap

2019 New York Tribute Dinner

The tenth annual dinner honored longtime supporters Gary Jacob and Stacey Saiontz for their leadership in the Northeast Region. 450 guests attended the dinner, held at Cipriani 42nd Street, and raised $3.2 million for the Museum’s campaign, Never Again: What You Do Matters.

Both honorees spoke powerfully of their personal connections to Holocaust history as they accepted the Museum's National Leadership Award. Stacey was joined by four generations of her family, including her grandfather, Jack Feldman, a survivor of Auschwitz.

Museum Director Sara J. Bloomfield spoke of the importance of the Museum's mission to preserve Holocaust memory, reflecting on the rise in antisemitic hate crimes in the year since the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue. The program concluded with remarks from Irene Weiss, a Holocaust survivor and Museum volunteer, who emphasized the need to apply the lessons of her life story to present-day atrocities. "When I learn about the thousands of families throughout the world struggling for religious freedom," she said, "not only does it bring me back to another time when my family and I paid the ultimate price of religious persecution, it makes me ask what will it take to make the future different from my past?"

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