Kash made his fortune in the biotechnology industry and pharmaceutical companies. He specializes in founding companies or raising funds for them.
Like many other businesspeople in the United States, he gained publicity not for the companies he founded but for his best seller, "Make Your Own Luck," in which he tries to teach people how to take advantage of opportunities and turn them into money. Since then he has also become a popular lecturer.
Kash is involved in philanthropic activity for several organizations in Israel, including United Hatzalah, which provides emergency medical services. The organization has 1,700 volunteers, most of them haredim, but has recently been joined by seculars and even Arabs, allowing its people to operate in Arab communities as well.
United Hatzalah's new initiative is the Ambucycles unit. The unit, which already has more than 150 motorbikes, aims to reach people in danger as soon as possible with advanced medical equipment, and tend to them until an ambulance arrives.
The Magen David Adom emergency organization has a similar number of motorcycles, which are an integral part of its service to the public.
In order to raise funds for this unit, Kash initiated a "cross-country life saving bicycle tour" in Israel. Instead of having an extravagant birthday party, he invited 15 of his closest friends – all successful businesspeople – to join him on the journey.
Beyond the generous donation expected to be raised, this move provides a positive exposure for the organization and extends the circle of people familiar with its and with its goals, who may offer their support in the future.
