Whether you joined us in person or extended your support through sponsorships, raising your paddle at the Mitzvah Moment, rolling the dice to win a car, playing in the high stakes poker tournament and online bidding, we are so grateful for your generosity at last night's event, Casino Royale: Betting on BZ. 
The gathering was a true testament to the strength of our community, with attendance of over 300 guests. Together, we raised over $430,000, providing essential funding towards our strategic priorities, tuition assistance, and the continued excellence of our dedicated faculty and staff. Your support will ensure that our school continues to develop confident learners and compassionate leaders poised to make a positive impact on our world.

Those in attendance were deeply moved by our Mitzvah Moment video, which showcased what it means to be part of our inspiring community.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to our extraordinary event co-chairs, Jodi Gruber, Tamar Jacoby, and Beth Krigel, as well as the dedicated Fundraiser Committee, Bernard Zell faculty and staff, event volunteers, sponsors, and each one of our esteemed guests. The success of the night would not have been possible without their time, talents, and unwavering commitment.
