The Major Jewish Supporter of Christian Causes – Mark Gerson

June 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Mark Gerson is an accomplished investor, businessman, and philanthropist. The co-founder of the Gerson Lehman Group, as well as several other US companies, he also helped to found the Tel Aviv Angel Group, which invested in early stage Israeli start-ups, and later on, Maverick Ventures Israel, a venture capital fund of private investors who invest in early growth Israeli startups.

Equally diverse in his philanthropy as in his businesses, Mark was a co-founder of United Hatzalah, a network of volunteer medics in Israel, as well as the African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), which supports the work of Christian medical missionaries serving in Africa. As part of AMHF, Mark helped create the Gerson L”Chaim Prize, a $500,000 grant to award medical missionaries for their service and to help them fund their mission.

In addition, Mark is also the host of a popular podcast and author of a best-selling book, The Telling: How Judaism’s Essential Book Reveals the Meaning of Life. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet with a true Renaissance man!
