FAQ

Who is the honouree this year?

This year’s Negev Dinner will be honouring our brave front line workers in Canada and in Israel, who are dedicating their time and efforts in the fight against COVID-19.

How can I pay tribute to a front-line worker?

When making a donation or purchasing a meal package to the Negev Dinner you may send in a name of a front line worker, their place of work and position, and they will be added to the list of front line workers we will be honouring this year.

For a personal message you may place an ad in the Tribute Book, which will be sent to all participants.

What is the project for this year?

This year we will be offering the option to donate to three different projects in Israel:

Aleh – Aleh-Negev is a residential campus near Be’er Sheva that services severely handicapped adults. They are currently building a rehab hospital.

The Migal research institute – the research institute who is currently working on the COIVD vaccine. This project is a partnership with KKL.

Eitanim Psychiatric Hospital – Eitanim is located just outside of Jerusalem and needs renewed and expanded therapeutic garden spaces.

What is the format of the dinner?

The Negev Dinner this year was meant to take place in host homes across the GTA. Due to the increase in case numbers in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic this will no longer be possible.

The evening’s regular programming, such as speakers and entertainment, will be presented virtually, for all guests to be able to watch in unison with other homes.

You can now participate in the Negev Dinner in one of 4 ways:

1) Purchase a table and host a catered dinner for your personal social bubble.
2) Purchase a table and instead of hosting your table in person their meals will be sent directly to their homes.
3) Purchase dinner or dessert for 2 to enjoy in the comfort of your home with the event broadcast.
4) Receive the broadcast only for a minimum donation.
