A New York Dinner Raises Funds for the Bnai Zion Medical Center
On Thursday, May 9, Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos, a leader in the field of physical therapy and rehabilitation and co-founder of the Hands-On companies, was recognized for his accomplishments with the Bnai Zion Distinguished Humanitarian Award at a dinner held in the newly renovated Bnai Zion auditorium. Proceeds from the dinner were used to support the rehabilitation department of the Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa, the only department of its kind at a hospital in northern Israel - which Dr. Kostopoulos visited earlier this year - and the critical work of the Hellenic Relief Foundation, which provides assistance for basic human needs in Greece.

We Send 100% of All Designated Gifts to Our Projects in Israel
We send 100% of all designated gifts made to our organization to our projects in Israel, enabling us to send the majority of contributions to help Israel’s less fortunate who need it most.
This percentage puts Bnai Zion ahead of most other charitable organizations in terms of targeting dollars received. It allows us to forge ahead with fortifying the Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa, a prominent urban hospital serving Israel’s northern communities; to provide enhanced services and facilities for children at risk at Ahava Village for Children & Youth in Kiryat Bialik; to increase cultural resources in Ma’aleh Adumim, a vibrant city near Jerusalem serving as part of the security belt for Israel’s capital; to help expand the curriculum for teachers-in-training at the David Yellin Academic College of Education in Jerusalem; and to increase options available to mentally and physically challenged adults in the Quittman Center at Israel Elwyn in Jerusalem. Our work makes a positive difference in medical, social, educational and cultural arenas for a cross-section of the Israeli population and we’re very grateful for your help.
