The Real Estate Division builds a network of support from established industry leaders in the New York, Northern and Central New Jersey Region who are committed to the mission of ADL: to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. The Division holds insider briefings, networking events and the Annual Real Estate Luncheon, which serves as its signature event. Since its founding by Burton P. Resnick of Jack Resnick & Sons, Inc. and Leonard Litwin of Glenwood Management in 1998, the Real Estate Division has brought together the most elite members of the real estate community and raised millions of dollars in support of the ADL.



Now in its 21st year, the Real Estate Division has established an Executive Council to bring in new, dynamic leadership to this exceptional group.
