Rhoda Goodman and Rick Notkin received this years’ Mitzvah Awards, in large part because they have graciously “stepped up” as needed.
Rhoda is our Membership Chair. She stepped up into the huge hole created by the passing of Barbara Morgenstern (of blessed memory), and then she agreed to fill some other big shoes by taking on the co-ordination of lunches we prepare for the Salvation Army after Joyce and Bob Selig moved to the sunny south.
Rick has taken on the task of keeping our kitchen (and many other places!) organized and sparkling clean, always being willing to teach us about safety, joining the board of trustees almost immediately upon joining the congregation, and can always be counted upon for big behind the scene tasks!
