Jewish National Fund-USA CEO Russell F. Robinson was inducted into the MJHI Manhattan Jewish Hall of Fame on June 17, honoring his long-standing support for the land and people of Israel and Jewish people everywhere.

MJHI Manhattan Jewish Hall of Fame was launched seven years ago and recognizes individuals who were born, lived or currently reside in Manhattan and have made an extraordinary contribution to Judaism and Jewish values during their lifetimes.

“This has been a year of pain and perseverance, yet also hope for our Jewish people,” said Robinson. “I feel honored to be inducted into the MJHI Jewish Hall of Fame. However, I also see this as recognition of our Jewish National Fund-USA team that has worked relentlessly to support Israel’s Negev and Galilee. Since Oct. 7, our professionals have worked day and night to support immediate and future relief efforts in Israel’s north and south as we lead efforts to rebuild the communities we have worked with for decades.”

This year’s awardees also included Rabbi Elie Abadie, Abraham Foxman, Cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot, Dina and Jonathan Leader, Moishe Rosenfeld and Ethel Sheffer.

“This is a great honor for me to induct these distinguished New Yorkers into the MJHI Manhattan Jewish Hall of Fame,” said Howard Teich, chair of MJHI Manhattan Jewish Hall of Fame. “We would like to thank Borough President Mark Levine and New York City Councilmember Gale Brewer for their longstanding and continuing support of the MJHI Manhattan Jewish Hall of Fame, its mission and initiatives.”
