How nice it is to end the year with good news about two of our congregational leaders.
President Ed Cohen has received a prestigious honor, the Bowl of Hygeia Award, from the Illinois Pharmacist Association. The award, presented to only one pharmacist annually, honors one who has compiled an “outstanding record of community service.” Ed has been long been involved in civic service commitments, including sitting on the board of the University of Illinois. We are lucky to have him as president of EHNT and offer him hearty congratulations!
We are also thrilled that our cherished rabbi emeritus, Neil Brief, is being honored by the Village of Skokie at its monthly board meeting on Monday, October 16. Mayor George Van Dusen will present a formal proclamation of appreciation to Rabbi Brief for his decades of leadership in Skokie, as rabbi of our congregation, as a member of the Commission on Family Services Commission, and much more. All are welcome to attend that 8 pm meeting. Stay tuned for more information.
