Enjoying the Breeze: Davidoff Conference Social Gathering

In the midst of busy days of meetings and lectures at the fourth annual International Board meeting of the Davidoff Cancer Center, attendees were welcomed into the homes of long-time friends of Rabin Medical Center, Yoram Petruschka and Arlene Strelitz. Arlene is an executive member of the American Friends of Rabin Medical Center's Board and it was her dedication to the hospital that, years ago, inspired the involvement of Yoram, who has since become Chairman of the Friends of the Davidoff Center. Their shared vision has been vital to the growth and success of the Rabin Medical Center in many ways, but their introduction twelve years ago of their mutual friend, Leon Davidoff, to Professor Dan Oppenheim, then CEO of Rabin Medical Center, gave them special reason to celebrate this more recent event. That meeting was crucial to the realization of the dream of a peerless comprehensive cancer care facility that was to become the Davidoff Center.

At the first evening's welcome dinner, guests were greeted by Rabin Medical Center's current CEO, Dr. Eyran Halpern, and a jazz trio in the home of Yoram Petruschka. On the third night, after two full days of deliberations including a symposium on prostate cancer and the annual meeting of the board, Arlene Strelitz hosted a gathering in the garden of her beautiful home overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. While enjoying a delicious dinner and an operatic performance, the participants were able to sit back and relax among new and old friends and enjoy the wonderful sea breeze.
