A beautiful night of music and dance and interfaith community appreciation.
City Island is a special place, indeed. Over 100 people came from near and far, including nearby churches and the Free Mason lodge, to join members of our congregation in celebrating Temple Beth El’s 84th Anniversary Dinner Dance, and to honor the synagogue and all it has done for its neighbors.
Many individuals came from hours away because this night they were also honoring three special individuals: Bob Berent, Bob Steinberg, and Patreesha Daniella Haney. It should be noted that, after receiving a lifetime contribution award, Bob Berent thanked the audience and sincerely asked: “Would someone here please finally step up and take over my weekly step sweeping and snow shoveling duties?”
