American Friends of Ateret Cohanim to Honor Five Outstanding Couples

American Friends of Ateret Cohanim/Jerusalem Chai will celebrate Yom Yerushalayim on May 31 at Terrace on the Park in Queens. The organization will mark 37 years of amazing accomplishments, renewing Jewish life in the heart of the Old City and the neighborhoods outside the Old City. Jewish families are joyfully living there, knowing that by their mere presence, Jerusalem is being kept a truly united capital.

This year American Friends of Ateret Cohanim proudly pays tribute to five truly deserving couples who are being honored for their devotion to Ateret Cohanim: the Honorable Bruce and Segal Blakeman of Atlantic Beach; Drs. William and Gail Frumkin of Great Neck; Joseph and Dr. Gail Notovitz of Great Neck; Dr. Steve and Hedy Rubel of Lawrence and Rabbi Joseph and Anne Stamm of Flatbush.

This Yom Yerushalayim dinner is dedicated to the memory of Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi, Hy”d, the third victim to die in a merciless attack that took place on Hoshana Rabah, and to the rebirth of Jewish life in the Shiloach—the Yemenite Village. Rabbi Lavi lived in the famous Beit Wittenberg, where today the Old City’s children have daily supervised activities in the Wittenberg Childrens Activities Center, a program supported monthly by American Friends of Ateret Cohanim.

“The importance of attending this event, or placing an ad in the dinner journal, cannot be overstated,” Shani Hikind, American Friends Executive Vice President said. Executive Council member Dr. Paul Brody said. “At a time when Jews are being attacked throughout Jerusalem, the least we can do is to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in a meaningful gathering, celebrating the Reclamation of a United Yerushalayim.”
