Real estate expert Jacob Frydman donated $180,000 to the NCFJE foundation at their annual Awards Dinner

New York, NY - July 11, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Jacob Frydman, real estate expert, showed his support to the NCFJE. The foundation's Annual Awards Dinner took place at the Edison Hotel Ballroom in Manhattan, where he was Guest of Honor. Frydman praised the organization's efforts towards the Jewish community. The real estate mogul, a frequent guest on major news networks, punctuated his enthusiastic support of the NCFJE with a pledge of $180,000. The room was electrified by Frydman’s announcement and his commitment to charity, philanthropy, and kindness.

In a recorded statement, Jacob Frydman praised the organization's flagship Jewish Released Time Program, which sends hundreds of volunteers across metropolitan New York to teach Jewish public school students. "Find me another organization that mobilizes, literally, an army of young men and women... to engage Jewish children all over metro New York, week after week..." He also praised the Machon LeYahadus, the organization's advanced Jewish Studies program for women, which he called "forward thinking" and "ground breaking”. "The National Committee was decades ahead of the rest of the Jewish world, to recognize that there were young ladies, and many of them... thirsting for that knowledge."

NCFJE Chairman, Rabbi Shea Hecht said: "We really could not be more happy with our relationship with Mr. Frydman. He has shown a real concern for the welfare of the community at large, and is the kind of guy that really wants to help. You would think that someone involved with such massive projects is very removed from the concerns of the community, but Jacob is not like that at all. He is just an incredibly warm and loving person. I'm really impressed with him."

"I’m the kind of guy - I do things right, I do things with impact, or I don’t do them," said Jacob Frydman, "I feel very fortunate to have discovered an organization that shares my approach."

NCFJE was founded in 1941 by the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn to teach Torah to public school students through the Jewish Released Time Program. The organization is responsible for running 37 separate social, religious and educational programs, including Jewish Summer Camps, TOYS for Hospitalized Children, Food Pantry in Brooklyn, Anti Shmad, ILTSF (formerly known as ILTSE), and Operation Survival. In recent years, the organization has turned its focus upon the economically disadvantaged families in its home community of Crown Heights.

Chairman and CEO of Frydco Capital Group, a private family office through which he invests in real estate and private equity opportunities, Jacob Frydman devotes much time and capital to various philanthropic endeavors. He served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Bardavon Opera House, home of the Hudson Valley Philharmonic, as well as on the Board of the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County, NY. For many years, he has also been a firm supporter of organizations such as Chabad of Dutchess County and the Brem Foundation, helping people in struggling communities.

They acted after state officials announced they would close the road to the summit of Mauna Kea so they could begin bringing equipment to the...

Planned Parenthood to defy Trump abortion referral rule

Jul 17, 2019

WASHINGTON — Federally funded family planning clinics, including Planned Parenthood, are defying the Trump administration's ban on referring women for abortions, drawing a line against what they say amounts to keeping patients in the dark about legitimate health care options. "We are not going to comply with a regulation that would require health care providers to not give full information to their patients," Jacqueline Ayers, the group's top lobbyist, said in an interview Tuesday. "We believe as a health care provider it is wrong to withhold health care information from patients." The fallout from the confrontation between the Trump administration...
