4/14 - Steven Fogel, Offer Gat, Matt Smith, Rabbi Irwin Kula

Steven Fogel -  Principal Cofounder  Westwood Financial Corp
As principal and cofounder of Westwood Financial Corp., one of the largest owner-operators of retail properties in the United States, real estate tycoon Steven Jay Fogel has learned firsthand that being wealthy provides a rich lifestyle but not the answers to all our problems.  In his book, My Mind Is Not Always My Friend , Fogel shows you how to. Steven J. Fogel set a goal of becoming a millionaire by the time he was 30. He achieved his objective and was proud of his success, living the lifestyle he'd always dreamed of. He had a talent for both making and keeping money. But his happiness was fleeting. He soon found that the old line “Money can't buy happiness” was true-and the joke was on him!

Matt Smith and Karen Gillan - "Dr. Who" Actor Matt Smith will enter the TARDIS as the Eleventh Doctor. Acclaimed Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat (Jekyll, Coupling) is the new Lead Writer and executive producer. Doctor Who tells the story of the Doctor, the mysterious traveler in time and space who has saved the universe so very many times. A Time Lord, one of a legendary race of powerful beings whose job it was to observe, record but never interfere. Despairing of his people's desire to do nothing but watch, he fled his home planet of Gallifrey inside an ingenious and unique craft called the TARDIS, a technological marvel that is indestructible, bigger on the inside than out, capable of amazing deeds and the one constant in his life - the place he now calls home. Thus, the Doctor remains a wanderer, an explorer and above all, a hero - the Time Lords themselves are all gone, destroyed in the Great Time War waged against a mighty fleet of evil beings called the Daleks. Only the Doctor survives, alone except for the human companions he picks up from time to time, briefly sharing his life with them but showing them all the wonders that the fantastic universe he travels through has to offer. The show started in 1963 and starred William Hartnell as the Doctor. When he wanted to leave the series, it was decided that Time Lords could 'regenerate', change their entire physical form and so over the years a succession of different actors have played the role, each one bringing their own personality to the role, but essentially always playing the same person, always trustworthy, honest, decent and a believer in right over wrong, justice over persecution.  This past January, the end of the previous era of Doctor Who starring David Tennant delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA and the last episode hit the #1 spot on iTunes in the U.S.  Doctor Who has a tradition of rebooting the series with new lead actors and creative team, similar to James Bond or even Sherlock Holmes. The series now has a new lead writer and executive producer, BAFTA-winner Steven Moffat and he’s signed on Matt Smith as the Doctor and Karen Gillan his companion, Amy Pond.

Offer Gat - CEO El Al Airlines 
Offer has nearly 20 years experience in the travel and airline industry, and is available to comment on the pros and cons of consolidation, what this means for consumers, and whether or not he believes this will become a future trend for airline industry. Additionally, he can offer an international perspective, as EL AL is the leading carrier offering international flights to and from Israel across the globe.  This potential deal would create one of the world’s largest airlines, and these negotiations mark the largest effort to date to consolidate the struggling airline industry. Offer can discuss this landmark and how it may affect other airlines, as well as potential hurdles, such as union opposition - as the official transaction is several weeks away and may potentially fall through.
