In 2013, This World: The Values Network launched their inaugural Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala. The honorees included:
Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson, Global Philanthropists and Humanitarians
Dr. Mehmet Oz, Television Host, Radio Host, and Best-selling Author
Michael Steinhardt, Global Philanthropist, Founder of Birthright Israel
Elie Wiesel, Nobel Laureate, Best-selling author, and Humanitarian
The reception by the public was overwhelmingly positive and inspired us to make the International Awards Gala an annual event to honor those who demonstrate core Jewish values in their life and their work on a global scale.
