Sigi Laster will be the guest of honor and Ginnine and Avi Fried will receive the distinguished community service award at the Jewish Center of Teaneck’s annual dinner, on Monday, June 25, at 6:30 p.m.
Mr. Laster’s service on the shul board and ritual committee, and his presence on the shul’s daily minyanim have been a reflection of his devotion to the shul.
The Frieds jointly revitalized the sisterhood and men’s club. Together they volunteer on the kiddush committee and in all aspects of youth programming. In the community, they run the Teaneck Baby Gemach, which assists Jewish families in Bergen County by distributing free baby equipment and clothing for babies and toddlers, and fundraising to buy formula and diapers for families who need financial help. The dinner also celebrates Israel’s 70th anniversary.
The evening begins with Mincha at 6:15 p.m., followed by a cocktail hour at 6:30, the program at 7:30, and dinner at 8:15. It ends with Ma’ariv at 9:30.
