Representatives from the state, county and local villages joined together to congratulate Ms. Ben-Moshe on her 16 years of service to the Roslyn Estates community. Among those in attendance was State Assemblyman Charles Lavine. Ms. Ben-Moshe served four years as a village trustee followed by 12 years as mayor.
More than 80 people attended and many spoke not only of Ms. Ben-Moshe’s leadership abilities but also of her qualities as a friend. Ms. Ben-Moshe is currently a member of the Bryant Library Board of Trustees.
The reception was only the most recent honor for Ms. Ben-Moshe. Last June, the New York State Senate passed a resolution, one introduced by State Senator Jack Martins (R - Mineola) noting her 12 years of “distinguished service” to the village.
Prior to being elected mayor, Ms. Ben-Moshe served as a village trustee from 1995 to 1998. As mayor, the resolution praised her for renovation of the village hall with updated technology. “[In] addition, its public areas and ponds were beautified, along with building safer roads; and [Ms. Ben-Moshe] also assisted in establishing an Emergency Tree Maintenance program and also created the Birches Sewer District; her greatest accomplishment was balancing the needs of each resident with the good of the community as a whole for 12 years,” the resolution proclaimed. Ms. Ben-Moshe said the latter accomplished as “my greatest success.”
The May/June Bryant Library newsletter will contain an interview with Ms. Ben-Moshe conducted by Julie Klein.

As with many youngsters growing up in Roslyn, Matt Soren was a New York Yankee fan. A pitching star at the University of Delaware, Matt was passed over by the Yankees in the major league baseball draft. But the 6-5, 225 lb. strikeout artist will still achieve the ultimate American dream of playing professional baseball. In the 19th round of the draft, Matt was chosen by the Philadelphia Phillies.
