Community Potluck, Shabbat Service and Yad L Yad Ceremony

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 5:45pm

Each year we honor three members whose volunteer efforts for Mishkan Shalom deserve recognition by the community. This year, we are so pleased to recognize long-time, long-serving members Irv Ackelsberg, Sharon Parker and Nancy Post.

Irv currently co-chairs our expanded fundraising and capital campaign committee; Sharon has been offering her support weekly in our office for years now and Nancy Post has had numerous leadership roles over the years and is currently involved with Makelat Micha’el- the Mishkan Shalom choir and our new Personnel Committee.

The award, Yad L’Yad ("hand-to-hand"), is named for the image created by long-time Mishkan member, and ceramic tile artist, Karen Singer of hands grasping hands, which adorns our first ark. The ark, with the original tilework, is now in our Chapel. Outside of the Chapel is a plaque listing the names of our past honorees.
