The American Society for Yad Vashem’s (ASYV) Los Angeles Virtual Gala honored Todd Morgan, Chairman and CEOat Bel Air Investment Advisors and Founder of The Morgan Aging with Dignity Fund, for his contribution to preserving the history of the Holocaust and introducing millions from the U.S. and around the world to the ongoing relevance of the Holocaust and survivors’ legacies.
On December 2, the event took place with an overarching theme of Resilience, which highlighted the ability to respond to the evils of the Shoah through healing, the capacity to recover by shaping trust, and the power to thrive by inspiring others and build for future generations. The evening honored Morgan’s efforts of giving back to the community and establishing an emergency fund for Holocaust Survivors on a national level.
Almost 40 years ago, the ASYV was established by a group of Holocaust survivors to advance the crucial efforts of Yad Vashem, The World Holocaust Remembrance Center. The ASYV has grown from a handful of dedicated members to more than 65,000 passionate individuals across the U.S through Holocaust education, traveling exhibitions, programming for the next generation and philanthropy.
Since its founding, Yad Vashem, The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, has become the ultimate source for Holocaust remembrance, education, documentation and research throughout the world. It serves as the conscience of humanity and the voice of the Jewish community in the vital endeavor to transmit the history and the significance of the Holocaust to future generations.
