Netivot Shalom’s annual dinner is always a wonderful opportunity to highlight and celebrate what makes our shul and our honorees so special. This year we have the pleasure of honoring three individuals who are always ready, willing and able to share their time, talents and expertise with the community for any and all tasks, both big and small. It is with great pride that we announce our 2015 awardees:

Leah and Alex Moskovits
Sema Heller Memorial Award


Fred Schulman
Service Award

This year, we are excited to add an additional element to our dinner. As the Netivot Shalom community grows larger, so does the need for communal service and volunteerism. Our honorees for this year exemplify “stepping up” for Netivot Shalom and its members, and to celebrate and honor them, we will be asking the members of our community to follow their example and “step up.”

At this year’s dinner, we will be highlighting various committees and projects that are in need of volunteers. We are aiming to increase our overall committee involvement by 20% by the end of the dinner and we are asking you to help us reach that goal.

We are also collecting new and gently used books (pre-K through high school) and non-perishable foods
