Speaking at the event was CBRE Group Chairman of Global Brokerage Stephen Siegel, as well as wounded active-duty and veteran IDF soldiers.

Shmuel Desalei Mashasha, who lost a leg in battle in Gaza when his position was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade, and Sgt. 1st Class Lotan Dovrat, who suffered wounds to his arms and body during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, when he entered a booby-trapped home.
