Westchester Jewish Council Anniversary Gala

One of the BEST Jewish community building events of the year took place on Saturday, February 10, 2018. The evening  included a delicious cocktail dinner by Foremost Caterers, great friends, a hysterical performance by comedian Avi Liberman and of course, a chance to support a very worthy cause within Westchester. The evening honored long-time Westchester Jewish Council board members Betsy Bernstein, Michael Karnes, and Gary Trachten
