Ron Cohen, vice chairman of Capital Markets New York at Jones Lang LaSalle, was honored last night at the 30th annual gala benefiting the American Friends of Rabin Medical Center. Proceeds from the event, dubbed “The Best of New York Meets the Best of Israel,” will benefit the future Emergency and Trauma Center at Rabin Medical Center in Israel.

Cohen is also a founder and executive board member of the AFRMC.

Stephen Siegel, CBRE’s chairman of global brokerage, and Jeffrey Gural, chairman of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, were chairs of the gala.

At the event, PBS’s Charlie Rose hosted a discussion between New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Ami Ayalon, the former director of Israel’s internal security agency, the Shin Bet.

The AFRMC gala took place at a particularly tense time for Israel, as fighting between the Jewish state and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip escalated.
