Congregation Netivot Shalom, a modern Orthodox synagogue in Teaneck, will celebrate its 18th year with its gala “Chai-versary Celebration” on March 12. The party, at 8:15 p.m. at the Fair Lawn Jewish Center/CBI, will feature music by the American Jewish rock band Soulfarm.

The evening will pay tribute to the synagogue’s five past presidents — Sam Heller, Marty Heistein, Barry Herzog, Pam Scheininger, and David Montag. All of them were instrumental to its growth and development. A special award will be given to Noah Rothblatt in recognition of his commitment to the synagogue and its community.

“The Chai-versary will be a fun celebration of Netivot Shalom, which began as a small house minyan, and now, 18 years later, is a vibrant synagogue of more than 100 member families that offers an inviting community for learning, praying, socializing, and supporting its members through good times and bad,” said Gail Katz Dukas, dinner co-chair and past board member. “As a smaller but growing synagogue, Netivot Shalom is dependent on the dedication and talents of its members. Our past presidents and Noah Rothblatt exemplify the type of commitment that has enabled us to thrive. We are constantly introducing innovative and exciting programming and projects, and striving to help our members expand their spiritual horizons in a warm, engaging environment.”
