Israel Tennis Centers Foundation President Alan Goldner, a New Jersey native, announced the recent broadcast of a news story by The Jewish Channel, a premium on-demand cable television channel, about the Israel Tennis Center’s coexistence program.
Considered the Jewish “HBO”, Meredith Ganzman, a reporter and producer from The Jewish Channel, interviewed both Jacqueline Glodstein, VP for Global Development and Nadine Fahoum, Development Associate. The coexistence story was covered in the broadcast by the TJC’s Jewish News Week in Review program.
Nadine Fahoum who is the first Israeli Arab Muslim woman to work for a major international Jewish Philanthropy discussed her involvement with the Israel Tennis Centers when she was a young girl in Haifa and how it changed her life. As a result of her success in tennis, and with support from The Israel Tennis Centers Foundation, Nadine attended Duke University on a full athletic scholarship where she played first singles on the 3rd ranked women’s tennis team in the country. After graduating from Duke this past June she began working as a Development Officer for the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation.
Jacqueline Glodstein, VP for Global Development, also interviewed by The Jewish Channel, discussed how the organization uses tennis to have a positive influence on the lives of both the children as well as the families they touch. Glodstein noted that “Nadine is just one shining example of former players who come back to make a contribution so they can help the next generation of children.”
Together, Jackie and Nadine were very excited about the forthcoming Serve Your Youth party and event in New York City on the 1st of November at the Bowery Hotel to celebrate Arab Israeli coexistence. Nadine commented, “This networking event will be a fantastic opportunity to show the ITC’s impact on children and families in Israel to my generation of young professionals who work right here in New York like me!” Designer Pages based in New York City is sponsoring the event.
