2 It is our Privilege to Honor Susan and Paul Kaye Lisa and David Travis and Randi Alexander Your Time, Effort and Dedication to our Synagogue is Truly Inspirational South Huntington Jewish Center Mens Club

3 Saturday night, April 20, Iyar 5773 Dear Friends, It is my great pleasure to join in our congregations Anniversary Ball celebrating Israel at 65 and honoring Susan & Paul Kaye, Lisa & David Travis and Randi Alexander. This evening gives us the opportunity to celebrate our love for Israel. How privileged we are to live in the generation that has witnessed the rebirth of the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile and persecution! How very proud we are of the amazing country Israel has become in the past sixty-five years – its beautiful land infused with such a rich history, its vibrant economy, its many technological and cultural achievements, the strength and resiliency of its people, its unwavering pursuit of peace despite the many forces which seek to undermine that effort. How blessed we are by the presence of the State of Israel in this world – a haven for the Jewish People, a beacon of hope for all humanity, a source of Jewish pride and identity! At the same time our celebration of Israel at 65 gives us a wonderful opportunity to honor some very special people who have done so much to help our synagogue community over the years – our long-time and very active members Susan and Paul Kaye and Lisa and David Travis – and the Director of our Early Childhood Program, Randi Alexander!! Each one them has done so much to help our synagogue over the years! Each one of them has brought their own special talents, personalities, hard work and love of people to our synagogue community. Our presence here tonight is just a small way of saying thank you to Susan and Paul, Lisa and David, and Randi, for all that they have done – and continue to do – to make our congregation the very special synagogue that we believe it to be. And, in agreeing to be honored this evening, they once again help our synagogue to flourish in the days to come. I can think of no words more appropriate to express the feelings in our hearts on this special day than the traditional prayer for those who serve the community. May God who blessed our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah, bless this entire congregation, together with all holy congregations: Them, their sons and daughters, their families, and all that is theirs; along with those who unite to establish synagogues for prayer, and those who enter them to pray, and those who give funds for heat and light, and wine for Kiddush and Havdalah, bread to the wayfarer and charity to the poor; and all who devotedly involve themselves with the needs of this community and the Land of Israel. May the Holy One, reward them, remove sickness from them, heal them, and forgive their sins. May God bless them by making all their worthy endeavors prosper, as well as those of the entire people Israel. And let us say, Amen. With much love, respect and pride as we celebrate this wonderful evening, Ian S. Jacknis Rabbi

4 April, 2013 Iyyar, 5773 Dear Friends, We are ecstatic to join together in the hora tonight with our incredible honorees, Susan and Paul Kaye, Lisa and David Travis and Randi Alexander to celebrate our love and dedication to Israel at 65 and the South Huntington Jewish Center. With your unceasing energy our vibrant growing community is very blessed to make an indelible impact on the lives of all who come here to pray and study. We would like to personally thank everyone involved in making our community such a success. Through many acts you have furthered our dedication to the fulfillment of the rabbinic teaching of building our world based on the three things on which it rests – on Torah (learning), Avodah (worship), and Gmilut Hasadim (acts of loving kindness). Susan, Paul, Lisa, David and Randi, your involvement is a true testament to the survival of the Jewish people and bears witness to the devotion, love, generosity and spirit of the South Huntington Jewish Center. Our community is blessed with much talent taking part in our many programs and services throughout each year. Your continued leadership and voice is important to us. With our voices joined together in song and prayer we can be a great chorus paving the way for the continuance and growth of sacred Jewish music and Torah in future generations. On behalf of Emily, Ella, Maya and myself we wish Yasher Koah, Hazak uBarukh and Todah Rabah to all. Thank you for being such a connected part of our South Huntington Jewish Center family and greater community. Kol Haneshamah Thalel Yah! Halleluyah! Let every soul praise God! Halleluyah! Hazzan Brian Baruch Shamash

5 This year SHJC honors four very special members as well as our outstanding early childhood director. It is no surprise that this group of honorees asked that we focus this years gala celebration on Israels 65th anniversary as an independent state, rather than on them. Their desire to center the limelight elsewhere is typical for each of this years honorees. Each and every one has, and continues to give to our community humbly, benevolently and altruistically. The officers and the board of trustees unanimously and unabashedly want to thank each of our honorees for your time, your energy, your generosity and your unrelenting devotion to our shul and the Jewish Community at large. Paul & Sue Kaye, we are in awe of you both. Each time we hear Pauls story and how he personally helped to ensure the realization of the Jewish State of Israel, we are mesmerized. And Sue, as a past SHJC president who continues to be a regular, and regularly recite haftarah, and regularly author the SHJC Sisterhood Queen Esther Purim spiel, and continuously chair our Cantors concert, and continue to always be here for us. What can we say? Todah rabah rabah! Lisa & David Travis, you both are an inspiration to us all. Between early childhood liaising, Crystal caterer representing, Sisterhood gift shop selling, Torah reading, and more, your involvement, interest and infectious outlook are an example to be emulated by us all. Dont ever stop raising the bar for the rest of us to follow. Randi Alexander, nana to our children, dedicated supporter of and loyal to our congregation and community, we thank you! We depend upon you to care for, to teach, and to partner with us as we raise our children in their formative years to be good, smart, Jewish, caring individuals. Having chosen to trust our children in your care for almost a decade, we have silently expressed our belief in you. It is now time to praise you from the rooftop! You have succeeded in helping to raise a generation of Conservative Jewish youth. We are in awe. Todah rabah. I would also like to say thank you to the Gala and Journal committees for all your hard work and making this evening a truly wonderful reality. Kol hakavod! And thank YOU for joining us on this special occasion; I truly hope you have wonderful time. May we all continue to go from strength to strength – mchayil lchayil. Judith Kunoff, SHJC President

Her children rise and celebrate her; and her husband, he praises her: "Many daughters have attained valor, but you have surpassed them all.
