Benny’s Beneficiaries: Benny Alagem’s Worthy Causes

hospital-wardHaving been described as a “major donor” in his lifetime, Benny Alagem is no stranger to generosity.  The City of Tel Aviv – recognizing his kindness and contributions over the years – in 1995 appointed him an Honorary Ambassador and he also sits on the Israeli-American Council’s Board of Directors as an honorary member. He is also a member of the Advisory Board for the American Friends of The Citizens’ Empowerment Center in Israel.

Some examples of this generosity include:  picking up the tab for the 2012 Council Leadership Gala; in 2004 held a fundraiser for the March of the Living (which raised $1m) and co-chaired a fundraiser for the Friends of the IDF which raised $5.2m for the IDF.

In recognition for his work, in 2016 Alagem was given the Philanthropic Leadership Award from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s Board of Governors.
