Pillars of the Community

More than 100 people joined the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity and American Friends of Tel Aviv University at Chicago's elegant Standard Club on Sunday, October 21st to honor "Pillars of the Community" Dr. Laurie Gordon-Shaw and Dr. Fred Margolis. Recognizing their leadership and service, the dinner raised funds for the joint AO/AFTAU initiative to build the new Rothstein-Williamowsky Special Needs Clinic at TAU's Maurice and Gabriela Goldschleger School of Dental Medicine. Read more about the campaign.

Notables attending the dinner included keynote speaker Prof. Joseph Klafter, president of TAU; Dr. Marc Rothstein, Chairman of the Alpha Omega Foundation and an AFTAU Board member; Consul General of Israel to the Midwest, Roey Giladand his wife, NitzaJon Gurkoff, Chairman of the AFTAU Board; Richard Sincere, member of the AFTAU Board; and Gail Reiss, President & CEO of AFTAU.

The dental community turned out in force to support the effort to raise funds for a "Chicago" pillar to be erected on the TAU campus. Dr. Rothstein spoke eloquently about the history of the project and the collaboration, and Drs. Gordon-Shaw and Margolis expressed their appreciation at being honored in this very important undertaking — one that will change lives for Tel Aviv families and Israel's next generation of dental practitioners.
