Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills Holds Anniversary Dinner

(Courtesy of YIKGH) On Sunday, Dec. 17 at 5 p.m., the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills (YIKGH) will hold its 72nd Anniversary Dinner in its ballroom. The dinner will be an opportunity to express gratitude and appreciation to those who have worked for the shul and community.

At the dinner, the shul will honor the maggidei shiurim, gabbaim, baalei keriah and members who have made the YIKGH Hashkama minyan a vibrant and vital part of the shul for 50 years. Jerry Iseson, who has davened with Hashkama since its inception, will accept an award on behalf of the minyan. The shul is also putting together a history of the minyan and asking that people share their memories at [email protected].

The shul will also honor Rabbi Arieh Listowsky and Orie Shapiro with the Joseph and Stella Zimilover Avodas Hakodesh Award; Mikey and Alyssa Hizami with the Young Leadership Award; and Shabsie (Steven) Saphirstein with the Community Service Award. It will also recognize the 107th police precinct for their service to the Jewish community.

Rabbi Listowsky and Shapiro have given countless shiurim and lectures for the shul community over the years. The Hizamis have brought, and continue to bring, young families into the shul community. Saphirstein is an activist, journalist and community volunteer who works tirelessly for the Queens Jewish community. The Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills has benefited a great deal from his work. The 107th precinct has a close relationship with the shul and has always been attentive to its needs.

The cost to attend the dinner is $200 per person. Reservations are required and various sponsorships are available. For further information, email [email protected].
