An Evening To Remember 2018


On Saturday, May 5, our community joined together for the 7th annual Evening to Remember. This year, we honored our Temple Beth Elohim values and "reimagined" this cherished event. The pillars of Torah (Learning), Avodah (worship) and Gemilut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness) were exemplified throughout the evening in song, in remarks, in a hug, in a hora.

Together - we raised $425,000 with over 300 guests who danced the evening away! We hope you were inspired by the music and speakers during the program, all of which seamlessly illustrated the wonder of Temple Beth Elohim. Our impact video demonstrates the role TBE plays in our life cycle events and how acts of love and kindness are present throughout each one of life's moments.

We are so grateful for everyone who participated in supporting our beloved Temple Beth Elohim! If you were not able to attend but would like to contribute to our TBE Fund, please click here. 

We are deeply grateful to our dedicated Event Co-Chairs who dared to take risks and re-imagine this evening together: Kerry Epstein, Helene Gelber and Jessica Myers. Our Evening to Remember Committee secured auction items, took into consideration every detail of the event and enthusiastically supported all efforts: Samantha Bartfield, Melanie Chiverton, Julie Comenzo, Jackie Finard-Hughes, Pam Forman, Betty and Jerry Goldberg, JulieSue Goldwasser, Sheila Heller, Marci Katz, Betsy Kessler, Elyssa Kotzen, Elizabeth Navisky, Pamela Norden, Julie Rand, Erica Recht, Susan and Bob Schechter, Lorin Seidman, Alexandra Simes, Noni Stearns, Seth Stier, Lauren Richman, Wendy Traynor, Harriet Warshaw and Betsey Weintraub.

Thank you to our many corporate sponsors and vendors who graciously donated their services: Brookline Bank, Denise Sternburg of DK Designs, Jalene Buckner of Top Notch Events, Rick Bern Photography, Michael Epstein of Horizon Beverage, Northern Lights Entertainment and Max Ultimate Food.

The success of the evening has proven, once again, how strong our community is as a whole and how together we can make a significant difference.  

With much gratitude,
