The Birthright Israel Foundation held its annual Atlanta event Monday night, Nov. 6, at the St. Regis Atlanta hotel in Buckhead to raise money for Birthright Israel.

Doug Ross, who leads the foundation locally and serves on the national board, was the honoree at a dinner that featured a speech by Israel’s U.N. ambassador, Danny Danon. Look for more from the event in the next issue of the AJT, and read more about Birthright in this week’s Our View.
