The Jewish Historical Society of North Jersey will honor Moe Liss at a gala celebration at the Bergen County YJCC in Washington Township on Tuesday, May 12. He will be honored as a teacher, friend, mentor, author, volunteer, and humanitarian.

The society’s collection now is stored in the basement of the former Barnert Memorial Hospital in Paterson. Contributions are vital to efforts to preserve and make the history of the Jewish communities in North Jersey accessible. The group recently contracted to buy a 2,500 square foot location in Fair Lawn. JHSNJ, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, needs $250,000 for the purchase and renovation of its new home.

The YJCC is at 605 Pascack Road. For information on the gala, go to jhsnj.wordpress.com.
