Project Ezrah, a local organization that focuses on helping community members with job searches and financial assistance, will celebrate 13 years of “neighbors helping neighbors in need” at its December 13 dinner. It will begin at 8 p.m. at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck.

In lieu of traditional dinner honorees, the group will mark its bar mitzvah year by celebrating everyone who has helped create, support, and grow the organization, which has assisted more than 3,000 area families.

Project Ezrah’s founder and longtime executive director, Rabbi Yossie Stern, who died in February, will be acknowledged. The community’s rabbis will be thanked for their guidance and leadership. In addition, unsung heroes, including neighbors who have extended their hands to help, will be recognized. The dinner also will welcome and introduce Robert Hoenig, Project Ezrah’s new executive director.
