American Legion Post 304 Announces Parade Plans
John F. Keitz, commander of the Manhasset Post 304, American Legion and Anthony W. Buzzitta, parade chairman, have announced the Parade Order and schedule for the traditional Manhasset Memorial Day Parade, and for the attendant memorial services. All Manhasset residents, their families and friends are invited to join the legion in this remembrance of the great sacrifices of American heroes. The theme of the parade this year, "Manhasset Remembers our Servicemen and Servicewomen," is a reminder that while Memorial Day is meant to honor all of our deceased veterans, we wish to remember in particular this year the servicemen and women from Manhasset. In addition to those honored at our Gold Star Memorial and the 21 Manhasset veterans that died in the past year, we want to remember the young men and women from Manhasset who are currently serving on active duty around the world to preserve our freedom. We honor the members of the 301st Area Support Group, 77th Regional Readiness Command from Fort Totten, New York, which Post 304, and indeed, the entire Manhasset community, adopted while they are deployed in Iraq last year. We are pleased that a contingent from the 301st will lead the Manhasset Memorial Day Parade.
Temple Judea of Manhasset Honors Rabbi Abner and Linda Bergman
During the weekend of June 9 through 11, Temple Judea of Manhasset will be honoring the retirement of Rabbi Abner and Linda Bergman after 23 years of dedicated service to the temple. Rabbi Bergman is a native New Yorker who served in Salt Lake City, Utah and Pacific Palisades, California, before he was called to the pulpit at Temple Judea in 1983. Rabbi Bergman has been active in Rabbinic Associations in New York and on Long Island, Planned Parenthood, and Hospice Care of Long Island. Rabbi Bergman conceived and nurtured to fruition the Holocaust Resource Center of Manhasset, which is housed within Temple Judea and actively educates children and adults about the Holocaust under the direction of Irving Roth. Rabbi Bergman has enormously enhanced the sense of spirituality at Temple Judea, and he and his wife have likewise been positive influences on the development of the temple and the religious practices that make it so personal and embracing.
