Dear Friends,

It is with both nostalgia and anticipation that we invite you to join TOGETHER at the 40th Anniversary Dinner of the Young Israel of Jamaica Estates on Saturday night, February 2, 2019.

YIJE has come a long way and accomplished much during our first 40 years. More than a place to daven, our shul laid the foundation for the flourishing Jamaica Estates, Fresh Meadows, Holliswood Jewish community, and we continue our leadership role to this day in so many areas within local, regional and global Jewish society. As a community, we have accomplished this TOGETHER under the leadership of our Moreh D’Asra, Rabbi Shlomo Hochberg and our wonderful Rebbetzin Karen.

TOGETHER we create a Makom Kodesh that is home to a diverse congregation.
TOGETHER we educate and engage the community’s youth.
TOGETHER we support and protect our brothers and sisters in Medinat Yisrael.
TOGETHER we foster an environment of volunteerism.
TOGETHER we look for and embrace chesed opportunities.

We will also express a special Hakarat Hatov to Linda Brukner in recognition for her four decades of service to YIJE both professionally and as a volunteer. Linda, TOGETHER with her husband Harry is a founding member of our shul. From the day the Brukners moved in 40 years ago, Linda has continuously participated in virtually every aspect of our community. Volunteering on a myriad of committees and Sisterhood projects, participating in shiurim, classes and clubs all too numerous to list. In addition, Linda has served as our office manager, working TOGETHER with Rabbi Hochberg for nearly 30 years to ensure the day to day operation of YIJE. As the linchpin connecting the professional staff, lay leadership, facility management and calendar, Linda truly embodies, and has empowered, the way we all work and live TOGETHER and is uniquely deserving of special recognition at this milestone event.

Please join us on February 2nd as we celebrate 40 YEARS TOGETHER and pay tribute to Linda and all of those who make YIJE such a wonderful place to be a part of. Your presence will enhance the evening, add to the success of the dinner and help to create the momentous event this community milestone so well deserves.
