On May 11, 2017, in New York, ISEF organized a gala anniversary dinner honoring Mrs. Safra with a Lifetime Achievement Award as Honorary Chairwoman of ISEF, and a longtime benefactor of the organization.
Founded in 1977 by the late Edmond J. Safra, Lily Safra, and Nina Weiner, ISEF identifies students with the greatest potential for leadership and success. Following the extremely selective admission process, it then provides students with university scholarships as well as a program of community service, social awareness and leadership skills training. The program is acknowledged as helping to develop leaders in all walks of life in Israel.
