Event Chairs

Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center is excited to announce the 2020 Spirit of Hope Co-Chairs, Sharon and Ron Baruch, and Daryl and Derek Erdman.

"We have seen first hand the incredible work of FSWC. Most recently we travelled to Israel and participated on Compassion2Action and saw the great work FSWC is doing with educators, police and politicians. We have also worked on events like Freedom Day, and are involved in a private school outreach program in collaboration with FSWC's outstanding team of educators. We are thrilled to help this worthy organization" said the Erdman and Baruch families.

"It is our honor and pleasure to welcome the Baruch and Erdman families to Spirit of Hope. We are sure they will bring further success to our annual dinner" said FSWC Chairman, Gerald Schwartz.

"The Erdman and Baruch families are energetic, passionate and driven to help us succeed. We are all thrilled to have them aboard and look forward to another exciting year" said Avi Benlolo, FSWC President and CEO.
