In 2004, Anthony E. Westreich established Monday Properties, a real estate firm that focuses on investments, property development, and many other services. Outside of the firm, Anthony Westreich actively engages with several charities, among them the Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO).

The Women’s International Zionist Organization, together with Bridges for Peace, a Christian organization, works hand-in-hand to help acquaint Christians from all over the world with Israel, particularly Jerusalem. Every few months, new volunteers from Bridges for Peace, as well as individuals from around the world, visit the WIZO center to participate in different activities, such as helping children, abused women, and poor families in Jerusalem. These volunteers help accomplish simple tasks such as cleaning parks, collecting garbage, painting and decorating the outdoor walls of the daycare center, and performing minor physical labor around the compound. They also help build simple structures, like a shaded outdoor terrace for children to rest and play in.

WIZO’s work inspires social activism and raises awareness among other organizations as well as among Christians. Every year, hundreds of volunteers express their eagerness to participate in WIZO’s activities. The administrators of the center do their best to make visitors and volunteers understand the importance of their ongoing contributions to Jerusalem for the benefit of the whole Israeli society.

Monday Properties founder and CEO Anthony E. Westreich oversees the leading real estate firm’s holdings in New York, New York. As an active community member, Anthony Westreich works hard to promote New York City through his position on the board of the Grand Central Partnership.

In the 1980s, many parts of the nation faced economic and physical deterioration. One of the hard-hit neighborhoods was New York’s midtown Manhattan district, especially the area surrounding the iconic Grand Central Station. Local business owners and residents banded together to restore and revitalize their neighborhood, resulting in the creation of the Grand Central Partnership.

Today, the neighborhood surrounding Grand Central Station is thriving again. The Partnership is frequently cited as an example of successful neighborhood revitalization, both at home and abroad. The people of midtown Manhattan continue to support their neighborhood through the Partnership, and now use the network to plan events, boost tourism revenues, and keep the flourishing heart of New York lively and fun.
