michael wildes and steve forbes stand in support of the american society of the university of haifa

On Wednesday evening May 22, 2013 Wildes & Weinberg, P.C. Managing Partner Michael Wildes attended a VIP private cocktail party hosted by Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media.  The evening was well attended by top-level business leaders and dignitaries and served as a formal introduction to the American Society of the University of Haifa, the largest comprehensive marine research university in northern Israel. For over 40 years, the goal of the American Society is to help ensure the continued excellence of the University’s educational, research, and community activities. Exploring Israel’s new offshore gas reserves, studying marine and plant life; and the launching of their new Mediterranean Center were chief among the topics discussed.
