Annual Dinner 2023

This year the Beth David family was delighted in honoring Dora Polachek with the Jack Ferber Award for her contribution to the Shabbat Luncheons. Over many years she succeeded in inviting speakers from a broad range of Jewish knowledge to our shul to educate and entertain the attendees. Thanks to her the Shabbat luncheons became a monthly event enjoyed by people with a variety of Jewish background and observance.

Annual Dinner, May 2022

After a hiatus of two years due to Covid we were resuming the annual dinner and able to honor a member of our shul with the Jack Ferber Award. This year’s honoree is Charlie Manasse, our Vice-President. His contributions to the shul are numerous ranging from working closely with the president in leading the shul, checking and fixing the eruv, fixing all sorts of machines needed for the upkeep of the building, to organizing Men’s Club breakfasts and working as the acclaimed chef. The Dinner was a joyous event, mainly because all participants delighted in being able to join and celebrate again, but also thanks to the roast by three of Charlie’s friends who remembered his wish expressed two years earlier as a condition for accepting the nomination.

A festive crowd filled the Social Hall
