About the New York Real Estate Division

The New York Real Estate Division of Friends of the Israel Defense Forces was founded by a group of successful business and philanthropic leaders in the Real Estate community. Our goal is to mobilize professionals in our field to support FIDF’s mission. We are almost 3,000 strong and are fortunate to have Stonehenge, Ariel Properties and Silverstein Properties as corporate sponsors.

The Division has grown tremendously and we have supported several capital projects, in addition to FIDF programs, to benefit the soldiers. We are very proud of the FIDF construction projects we have helped build such as the Sports Center at Michve Alon.

In addition to our Annual Golf Outing, we also host a wide range of activities including panel discussions, networking sessions, cocktail and dinner events. Fall 2017 marks our first Real Estate Mission to Israel.
