Aish 2021 Gala - David Weiner

Honoring David Wiener

David Wiener survived the unspeakable horrors of the Holocaust and rebuilt his life in America, nurtured a family, succeeded in business and has become an international philanthropist.

David grew up in Lodz and Krotoszyn, Poland surrounded by loving parents and siblings who were part of a vibrant, religious Jewish community. At thirteen he witnessed the Nazi invasion of Poland and his safe world was abruptly and brutally destroyed. Escaping the Lodz ghetto, virtually alone, he wandered from ghetto to ghetto narrowly escaping death until he was conscripted into a slave labor camp and ultimately transported to Auschwitz. Working in the Messerschmitt airplane factory and in the mines, he and 300 other prisoners were put on a Death March. David ran for his life and was saved by American soldiers three weeks before the war ended in Europe.

David also authored his personal memoir: Nothing to Lose but My Life. A compelling read of one man’s determination to survive in order to keep alive the memory of those lost forever.



Aish 2021 Gala - Noa Tishbi

Guest Speaker Noa Tishby

Actress, producer, writer, and activist Noa Tishby was born and raised in Tel Aviv and served two and a half years in the Israeli army before she landed a starring role on the nation’s highest-rated prime time drama Ramat Aviv Gimmel. She became a household name in Israel. She co-produced over 150 episodes, which earned a Peabody Award and twelve Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

She became a household name, appearing in numerous TV shows, films, theater productions, and national fashion campaigns, before she moved to Los Angeles, where she sold the Israeli TV show In Treatment to HBO, making history as the first Israeli television show to become an American series. She co-produced over 150 episodes, which earned a Peabody Award and twelve Emmy and Golden Globe nominations

A passionate political activist, Tishby founded the nonprofit “Act for Israel,” Israel’s first online advocacy organization, and has become widely known as Israel’s unofficial ambassador. This year she released her book: Israel: a Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth, released by Simon & Schuster.
