BLDG and its affiliates own and manage a portfolio of more than 400 real estate properties across the U.S. Goldman is the managing member of a partnership that owns a 50 percent position in the World Trade Center leasehold of Towers Two, Three and Four and he is also an active real estate developer, having most recently completed The One in Jersey City, N.J.

“The IDF soldiers ensure the security of Israel and of Jews around the world, ” said Goldman, who is involved in multiple charities and nonprofit organizations. “I am honored and privileged to support the well-being of Israel’s brave soldiers through FIDF.”

The FIDF New York Real Estate Division was created in 2006 by a group of successful business and philanthropic leaders who were passionate about uniting members of the real estate community to support the men and women who help protect and defend the Jewish State.

Since then, this division has helped support several projects, including the construction of a well-being center at the IDF Revaya Base for Battalion 71 of the 188th Brigade, and the support of other well-being programs for soldiers. The Real Estate Division plays a central role in the activities of the FIDF Tri-State Region.

“I personally believe that it is our moral obligation to support the well-being of the soldiers defending the Jewish homeland, ” said Ofer Yardeni, chairman of the FIDF New York Real Estate Division and chairman and CEO of Stonehenge Partners. “I am thrilled to be gathering leaders from New York’s real estate industry and FIDF supporters to salute these courageous soldiers.”
