The Yeshiva Beth Yehudah, also known as The Yeshiva – the largest Jewish educational institution in Michigan – will host its annual Evening of Unity gala, which celebrates community, education and shared values, on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. And while the event will take place in a virtual format due to COVID-19, its message of togetherness and progress is more important than ever.
This event will pay tribute to a hallowed institution that has ensured a strong, united Jewish Detroit for over a century. Typically hosted in Detroit, The Yeshiva’s Evening of Unity is attended by thousands of local, national and international political, civic and philanthropic leaders.
This year’s event, proudly sponsored by DTE Energy, will feature remarks from Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel; Yousef Al Otaiba, United Arab Emirates Ambassador to the United States; Jamie Dimon, CEO, JPMorgan Chase; U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow; U.S. Sen. Gary Peters; Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer; Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan; Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony, president, Detroit Branch NAACP; and Jerry Norcia, president and CEO, DTE Energy – honorary chairman of this year’s event.
Through these – and other – leaders, this year’s Evening of Unity event will focus on bringing people together in the spirit of unity in hopes our children can have a brighter future and live in a safer, more equitable world.
There is no cost to attend this virtual event, but registration is required. For more information and to sign up to day, visit: www.aneveningofunity.com.
