Three Brooklyn attorneys, George Farkas, Michael Farkas and Arthur Aidala, were among the honorees at the fourth annual Dror Freedom and Unity VIP Benefit Dinner, which took place at the Broad Street Ballroom in Manhattan on Thursday.

Dror is an organization that provides resources and assistance to Jewish families who have relatives indicted and imprisoned. The organization honored the Brooklyn attorneys, along with Michelle Esquenazi and Jason Fordin from Empire Bail Bonds and Long Island attorney John F. Carman, for their contributions to the organization.

“This organization is purely set up to support families and children,” said Isaac Soskin, the master of ceremonies for the event. “These attorneys have always been available to help the Jewish community whenever it has been needed. For them there are no nights and weekends, they’re always there.”

Aidala is a Fox News Channel legal expert and president of the Brooklyn Bar Association (BBA), Michael Farkas is the president of the Kings County Criminal Bar Association and his father George is a former trustee of the BBA.

“The reason I am honored is because of the people involved in Dror,” George Farkas said. “They help families during dark times. They provide them with food, shelter and other means of support and they do it all for free, all to help a fellow Jew. They’re good people who do it because it’s the right thing to do and not for publicity.”

“This is the reason to have a strong community, because they are there to help in times of need,” said Michael Farkas. “It doesn’t matter who you are, you may need help at some point, and these people are there when in need. I am so grateful to receive this honor.”

“I don’t know if it is deserved, but I am very proud to be honored and thank you all very much,” Aidala said. “Quite often families suffer as much or more than the person incarcerated, and this organization does so much to help.”
