More than 200 people gathered on Sunday, November 13, for Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey’s annual celebration. This year, the agency honored the Goodman family: Lawrence z”l and Rosalyn Goodman, David and Hope Goodman, Caryn Goodman and Mitchell Caplan, and Mindy and Jason Sickle. Celebration co-chairs Arline Herman and Paula Shaiman highlighted an emotional video showcasing the Goodman family’s five-decade commitment to giving back to the JFCS community.

Guests enjoyed the company and the food by Foremost Caterers at Alpine Country Club in Demarest, as longtime JFCS supporters and newer ones joined to celebrate JFCS’s mission of empowering people and transforming their lives.
