ALCOLM HOENLEIN, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish organizations, said he called Israel.

“In a word, how’s the situation there?” he asked.

“Good,” his friend answered.

“Okay, in two words.”

“Not good.”

That got a chuckle from the real estate crowd at an Israel Bonds luncheon of the Real Estate and Construction Division at the Pierre Hotel in New York. The event raised $30.1 million.

Peter Kalikow, Lewis Ranieri and Daniel Tishman presented the organization’s Israel Peace Medal to Scott Rechler, co-ceo of Reckson Associates Realty Corp. They also gave a citation to Stephen Karafiol of Bloomberg LP.

At the calling of the cards, one gentleman pledged two zero coupon bonds for his two children.
