    The all-star cast included Donald Rumsfeld, Former U.S. Secretary of Defense, Israeli Lt. Gen. (ret.) Moshe Ya'alon (currently Israel's Vice Premier and Minister of Strategic Affairs), and Dr. Yuval Steinitz, Israel's Minister of Finance. With the presence of these high-profile personalities, the dinner became a platform for many informative and powerful speeches concerning the future of the State of Israel.
