A tribute to mark the one year anniversary of the passing of Ed Koch will be held April 3, 2014.
The sister of the late New York City Mayor Edward Koch, Pat Koch Thaler, is slated to  host a tribute to her brother which has been dubbed “Memories of an Iconic New Yorker, Leader and Friend.” The tribute will be to mark the one-year anniversary of the former mayor’s death and is scheduled to be held at the Harmonie Club on April 3, 2014, the New York Post has reported.

Others who will attend the event include former Deputy Mayor of Economic Policy and Development Peter J. Solomon, plus media heavies including NBC’s Gabe Pressman, CBS’ Marcia Kramer and the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin. They are all planning to participate in the event and will share reminiscences about Koch’s reign from 1978 to 1989 in a panel talk, where they will discuss what it was like to be a part of and to cover the Koch administration. The panel talk will be moderated by Maury Povich.

“My brother was so proud of The Edward I. Koch Center,” Thaler said in a released statement. “Ed appreciated that the Center melds Jewish traditions and teachings with ethical practices in public and political life, and reflects so much of what Ed valued.”

“The Edward I. Koch Center for Public Policy and Jewish Ethics is rooted in the interplay between public policy and Jewish ethics and teaches that you can – and should – be a talented, progressive, tough public servant, but always maintain a strong foundation of values and ethics,” said Beit Morasha of JerusalemFounder and President Professor Benjamin Ish-Shalom. “By gathering together those who worked so closely with Ed, we’ll celebrate Ed’s life and memorialize his passing and give our dinner guests an intimate look at the former mayor.”

In addition to honoring the past mayor, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat will also be honored at the event, for which Chuck Scarborough will be the master of ceremonies. The event proceeds will go to the Edward I. Koch Center for Public Policy and Jewish Ethics at Beit Morasha in Jerusalem.

And the Genesis Philanthropy Group will be presented with the Morasha-Heritage Award for Distinguished Service to the State of Israel and the Jewish People.
