On August 30th, Rabbi Mark Schneier, spiritual leader of Hampton Synagogue, and Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Israel’s consul general in New York, announced that the synagogue’s 2nd annual Fourth of July weekend, held in conjunction with Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds, resulted in $10.5 million in Israel bond investments. The sales made it the most successful Bonds synagogue event in the country for the second consecutive year.

The July 4th weekend included a New Leadership cocktail reception and dinner Friday night; a “Hampton’s Got Talent” competition Saturday evening, hosted by comedian Rob Schneider; and a Sunday brunch at the home of Carol and Hampton Synagogue Trustee, Jerry Levin. Special guests at the brunch were New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli & Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel, who together have invested over $200 million in Israel bonds in their respective state portfolios.
