The New Jersey Yachad Gala Melava Malka reception is on Saturday, December 1, at 8 p.m., at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck. Local honorees include Joey and Shira Shatzkes, the guests of honor; Benny and Sara Berlin, Young Leadership awardees; and David, Susan, and Binyamin Richman, who will receive the Yachad Family award.
That evening, Yachad also will establish the Chani Rubin a”h Yachad Summer Scholarship Fund and dedicate the annual Camp Mesorah/Team Yachad 5K.
Close to 500 people are expected at the reception, which benefits the New Jersey chapter of Yachad, the National Jewish Council for Disabilities. The global organization addresses the needs of all Jews with disabilities and ensures their inclusion in every aspect of Jewish life.
