The keynote speaker is Bruce Pearl, Auburn University Men’s Basketball Coach, who is currently in Israel with his team on what he’s calling Birthright for Basketball. Today his team is playing the Israeli National Basketball Team, which ESPN is airing. The ESPN crew has been with them during their entire stay documenting the remarkable experience. Coach Bruce’s first stop after returning from their trip will be at the Gala.
Discussion panelists at the event will include Nate Mulberg from Cherry Hill New Jersey, Assistant Baseball Coach at University of Richmond, whose parents were recently honored by Chabad. Seth Friedman, also from Cherry Hill and a childhood friend of Nate’s, is co-chairing the event. Lots of South Jersey connections to tout. Looking forward to an exciting and informative event!
