Honoring a Legend

Can a stately ballroom with 400 guests feel surprisingly intimate?

AFTAU's annual dinner at the Pierre Hotel celebrating legendary financial pioneer and passionate philanthropist Harvey M. Krueger proved that it can. An astonishing number of guests claimed the honoree "among my best friends" — and the outpouring of love and warmth was exceptional.

The Dinner Chairs — Professor Jacob A. Frenkel, Chairman of JP Morgan Chase International and Chairman of TAU's Board of Governors; Dr. Giora Yaron, one of the founding fathers of the Israeli high-tech industry and Chairman of TAU's Executive Council; Professor Joseph Klafter, President of TAU; and Jon Gurkoff, Chairman of AFTAU — offered warm toasts. New York State Senator Liz Krueger, Harvey's middle daughter, also paid special tribute to her father. In a rare off-campus ceremony, Harvey received Tel Aviv University's most distinguished honor, Doctor Philosophiae Honoris Causa, at the close of the formal festivities.
