We are very proud and honored to share the news that Delta Galil Industries was awarded by the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee at an official ceremony held on Capitol Hill.
Representing Delta Galil was Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil Industries, who received the award from Sen. Ben Cardin, Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, at the Inaugural Sadat Congressional Luncheon this fall. The award, in memory of Delta Galil Founder Dov Lautman, was presented among diplomats, communal leaders, congressional staffers and organizational heads who came together to support the Anwar Sadat Congressional Gold Medal legislation, currently making its way through Congress.
At the event Isaac Dabah said that “Anwar Sadat was a true visionary who had true courage to change course and reach out to the Israeli people and seek peace. We, at Delta Galil, are very proud of our relationship with the people of Egypt and believe in the importance of awarding the late President Sadat with the Congressional Gold Medal. Anwar Sadat chose the path of peace and for that he paid the ultimate price. We, the future generation, are forever indebted.” Dabah added that Delta Galil is in the final stages of opening a fourth plant and remarked that Delta Galil employs more than 3,000 associates in Egypt.
A strong supporter of the coexistence between Israel and its neighbors, Lautman was a pioneer in establishing the first state-of-the-art Israeli manufacturing facility in Egypt. He deeply believed in fostering peace through regional commerce, a principle that continues to guide Delta Galil today. “Bestowing the Congressional Gold Medal upon Anwar Sadat forty years after the peace treaty was signed would send a clear message of hope, and encourage every leader in the region to pursue true and lasting peace. Dov Lautman would indeed be very proud today,” concluded Dabah.
As ever, Delta Galil is proud to have been recognized for its vision, its efforts and its forward action in bringing commerce and cooperation to the region, proving our commitment to the Delta Galil spirit and belief that community involvement and pro-activeness must go hand in hand with business development and growth.
