Israel Bonds real estate division honors Charles Bendit and Paul Pariser, co-chief executive officers, Taconic Investment Partners LLC, at its annual event on November 13th at the Pierre Hotel. Bendit and Pariser were awarded the Israel Peace Medal. Attended by 500 people, a capacity crowd, the event was very successful with over $50 million in Israel Bonds investments made by the participants, both for their personal and company portfolios.
This has been a record breaking year for Israel Bonds with more than one billion dollars invested in the US alone year-to-date, over 200 million of that total coming from the New York Region. The New York Real Estate Division accounts for a substantial percentage of this remarkable vote of confidence in the State of Israel and its strong economic growth and vitality.
