The more than 85 members and guests shared a scrumptious meal of Caesar salad, garlic bread, chicken and pasta with a tomato sauce, green beans and carrot cake for dessert. Both red wine and white wine were served.
Included among the many guests were representatives from WRJ and MRJ bringing greetings from their respective organizations.
Sisterhood presented a $1,000 check to TBO. As outgoing Sisterhood president, Ellie Urcis's president's pin was newly adorned with another diamond. As a special gift, she received a beautiful Shofar - which she promptly and beautifully blew. Incoming Co-presidents Celia Goldstein and Jaki Norris were handed their gavel and each welcomed their new and returning board members.
Outgoing Brotherhood president, Phil Carey, was unable to attend, but prepared a unique electronic presentation. Incoming president, Howard Lavoot, (co-president Ted Lavoot was away) reviewed their various programs for the past year and welcomed their new board members.
With his wonderful charm and style, Rabbi Mark welcomed in both new boards, and outdid himself with his presentation of "necessary" items and gadgets. We hope that this will be the first of many joint efforts of our sisters and brothers.
