PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- The Friends of the Israel Defense Forces are hosting their annual gala in Westchester on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Capital Theater in Port Chester.

Raz is a former soldier who also served as a counterterrorist.
The gala will be attended by about 350 people and will include speeches by members of the Israeli military.
Funds raised at this event will go toward well-being and educational programs for Israeli soldiers, wounded veterans, and the families of fallen soldiers. For more information visit https://fidf.org/WestGala2017 .
