More than 600 people joined the Rabbinical College of America’s National Founders’ Dinner on March 16 to honor Dr. David Shulkin, U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs, and Israel’s Consul General in New York Dani Dayan at an event hosted by RCA trustee Miles Berger at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark.

Major Dayan delivered a keynote address about the impact of Chabad in Israel and around the world. Dr. Sol Barer, chairman of the Board of Teva Pharmaceuticals of Israel, conferred an honorary degree to Shulkin.

The RCA, which oversees a network of 58 Chabad centers in New Jersey, offered a memorial tribute for two of its longtime supporters: business leaders David T. Chase and Joseph Wilf.
