The Main Event – A Night for Our Community to Celebrate Israel!

More than 1,200 supporters of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation will come together for one important evening – The 2011 Main Event – on Thursday, February 24, 2011. This annual event is a “don’t-miss” occasion, with a delicious kosher dinner, compelling guest speakers, outstanding entertainment and a strong sense of community spirit. But more than anything, the 2011 Main Event promises to be a night for our community to celebrate Israel.

The Main Event, Federation’s largest community gathering, begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Hilton Miami Downtown, 1601 Biscayne Boulevard.

Chairs of the 2011 event are Janet and Richard Yulman.


The keynote speaker at The Main Event will be Dan Senor, the co-author of the New York Times best-seller Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, which addresses how Israel — a country of 7.1 million people, only sixty years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources — produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

At The Main Event, Federation will honor Stephen and Sandra Muss with the 2011 Friend of Israel Humanitarian Award. The Musses are among the most prominent philanthropists in Miami. They are pillars of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Annual Campaign, demonstrating their profound concern for Israel and the well-being of our people. .
