On June 13, Lehrer, LLC Chairman and CEO Peter M. Lehrer was honored by UJA-Federation of New York at the 2017 Design and Construction Cocktail Reception, held at the Yale Club. Peter has been a long-standing donor to UJA-Federation, supporting many important causes including fighting poverty, caring for the elderly and people with special needs, health and wellbeing, and strengthening the global community.
While accepting this honor, Peter said, “I often think of my long career in the construction business and what’s important to me and what my legacy will look like. While there have been hundreds of projects all over the country and around the world, buildings are inert. Despite being proud of them, they don’t talk to you. The single most important legacy for me are the people I have met, the relationships formed and the impact it has had on my life and that of others.”
At the reception, generous donors and friends helped to raise more than $600,000 on behalf of UJA-Federation. As the world’s leading local philanthropy, UJA-Federation’s reach extends from New York to Israel to nearly 70 other countries, working with more than 80 core partners and hundreds of non-profits to change the lives of 4.5 million people each year.
The Lehrer, LLC team proudly congratulates Peter on this accomplishment, and warmly thanks our friends and colleagues for their support.
