Congregation Shomrei Torah of Fair Lawn will hold its 42nd annual dinner program at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck on Sunday, March 19, at 6 p.m.
This year’s “guest of honor” is the shul’s Torah Tuesday program; Mendy Aron will accept the award on its behalf. Typically, the “guest” is responsible for the increased study of Torah, including contributions to charities, by many in the community. The Torah Tuesday program, Mr. Aron’s brainchild, which began 10 years ago, continues to develop and improve under his leadership.
Laurette and Bernie Rothwachs are the David I. Goldberg Ohr Chesed honorees. They moved to Fair Lawn in 1982. That’s the year that the Learning Disabilities Program, later known as Sinai Schools, was launched, and where Ms. Rothwachs is dean emeritus. Mr. Rothwachs is on Shomrei Torah’s board, and he is a member of many of its committees, including the chevra kadisha.
Yael and Ari Mayefsky are receiving the Young Leadership award. Ms. Mayefsky is a supervisor and director of high-risk cases at Bikur Cholim of Rockland County and Mr. Mayefsky is the director of human services there. The Mayefskys, who have three young children, are very involved in the shul; they are youth directors there. For reservations, call (201) 791-7910.
