Marianne Gorlyn and David Goldberg are the honorees, Sari and Michael Samuel will receive the Shelly Leffel Service award, and Rivka Herzfeld will be given the Eitan Shapiro Young Leadership award.

Marianne Gorlyn and David Goldberg joined Beth Aaron in 1999. David Goldberg was a founding member and president of the men’s club, a board and executive board member, vice president, and president; he also chaired the kiddush committee. Marianne Gorlyn helps with speechwriting, events, and strategy to improve the quality of life at Beth Aaron.

Michael Samuel was on the search committee that hired Rabbi Aaron Rothwachs, is the shul’s liaison to Tomchei Shabbos, picks up food for Shearit ha-Plate every week, and is an attorney for Project Ezrah. Sari Samuel, Sharsheret’s controller, was co-chair for the journal dinner for many years and has been on the shul board. She was sisterhood treasurer and co-president, and has been on the Mikvah Association board, and was instrumental in establishing the Friday night/Yom Tov mikvah on the Beth Aaron side of town.

Rivka Herzfeld, a Torah teacher at Yavneh Academy in Paramus, has been a lifelong member of Beth Aaron. The shul always was a central part of her life. She was a youth leader, hoping to inspire the youth to connect to Torah and tefillah. She went on to give a Navi shiur to women on Shabbat afternoons and has volunteered for committees.
