‘Stay Safe Teaneck Pedestrian’ campaign honors memory of Harold Gellis

Elie Y. Katz, Teaneck’s Deputy Mayor, and the Gellis family of Teaneck, are continuing their work giving out reflective belts to Teaneck residents in memory of Harold Gellis. To date, they have distributed over 3,900 belts.

Harold Gellis, a longtime Teaneck resident, died unexpectedly in 2019, at the age of 71. He was active at Congregation Beth Aaron for 43 years and pushed for his entire community’s safety with reflective belts. Along with his wife Gloria, they were recognized as community leaders who uncompromisingly extended their hands to help their neighbors.

In his memory, free reflective safety belts are available as part of the Elie Y. Katz’s “Stay Safe Teaneck Pedestrian” campaign.

As the weather gets warmer, more people are out on the streets. As the number of people on the street goes up, so do the number of pedestrian injuries and fatalities. The reflective belts and the safety program, hope to reduce that number.

Due to limited supplies, the program is open to Teaneck residents first; if there’s a surplus, others can request as well. For more information, go to katz07666.com.
