Cook-off benefited hunger relief programs

Hunger knows no boundaries and that is why, on Sunday, June 10, Temple Beth Torah played host to a first-of-its-kind event in the New York area: a kosher barbecue championship. Created as a community event to raise proceeds for, and awareness of, hunger relief charities on Long Island, the day’s activities combined serious barbecue along with family, fun and entertainment. The Barbecue Championship, which attracted close to 2,500 visitors, was the culmination of 10 months of planning and hard work by nearly 125 temple members. This effort was backed by the financial support of many local businesses, TBT families and Fairway Market, which served as the title sponsor.

 

Union Rags Turns To Riches At 144th Belmont Stakes

With I’ll Have Another scratched, another notch set into Affirmed’s belt as last Triple Crown winner

What’s in a name? Or perhaps two names? For jockey John Velazquez, it’s two big wins at the Belmont Stakes in the last five years with the West Hempstead resident atop Union Rags in 2012, edging out Paynter by a neck on Saturday, June 9. Atigun came in to show.

The 126 pound jockey said it was an unbelievable race, even though the win didn’t come with spoiling history. I’ll Have Another was scratched one day before a chance to push Affirmed aside in the history books as the last to win all three jewels of the Triple Crown. The horse became the second since 1936 to win the first two legs, only to be unable to compete in the “Test of Champions.”

Caring For The One Who Cares Most

Caring for the Caregiver at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church helps caregivers to realize they are entitled to a life of their own

Many people provide regular care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member not for any compensation, but out of love. However, while love may be priceless, the value of the time and energy these people expend is not: The National Alliance for Caregiving estimates that if all those in the United States who currently take care of their loved ones for free were to charge for their services, they would collectively be owed approximately $450 billion in wages per year. Obviously, what many caregivers provide out of the goodness of their hearts has tremendous value, in every sense of the word.

Student athletes honored while board announces revised Audience to the Public policy

Citing increased professional obligations, Dr. Marc Herman stepped down as Syosset Board of Education president midway through the Monday, June 4, meeting at South Woods Middle School. Herman, a 19-year member of the board, will finish the remaining year of his term as a trustee. The new president will be announced at the board’s next meeting, set for July 2 at 8 p.m.

“I have started (pursuing) my master’s degree in healthcare ethics,” Herman said. “I also teach at North Shore University Hospital...Normally we have 10 residents at North Shore, but now we’ve combined with LIJ, so I’ll be teaching 20 residents. I’m in charge of the general dentistry clinic and practice management. Because of those things, I’ve decided that two decades is probably the limit that someone should sit on the board.”

Written by Karen Gellender: kgellender@antonnews.com Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00
The morning of Monday, May 28 featured brilliant sunshine, perfect weather for Syosset’s annual Memorial Day Parade. Members of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Syosset Fire Department, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, school marching bands and numerous civic organizations took to the newly repaved Jackson Avenue on the beautiful late spring day to honor the memories of those who fight to keep America free.

While many of the residents who cheered at the parade would later go on to enjoy festive barbecues and a relaxing day off from work, parade organizers and several speakers reminded the crowd not to forget the holiday’s true meaning.

 

Legislators Jacobs And DeRiggi-Whitton Host Informational Meeting On Proposed Sewer Privatization Deal

Written by Karen Gellender: kgellender@antonnews.com Friday, 01 June 2012 00:00
When NIFA rejected the contract between Nassau County and Morgan Stanley that would have allowed for sewer privatization, many people thought that the controversial plan to sell sewage system operation and maintenance to New Jersey-based United Water (UW) was dead in the water. Not so fast, said Legislators Judy Jacobs and Delia DeRiggi-Whitton: not only is the deal not dead, they expect the Mangano administration to present a second draft of the deal for NIFA approval shortly.

At an informational meeting held on Monday, May 21, at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library, Jacobs and DeRiggi-Whitton, along with fellow Democratic Legislator Dave Denenberg, attempted to explain what they perceive to be the many failings of the Mangano administration’s proposed sewer privatization plan. So far, NIFA agrees with them.

Spanish-American War veteran among those honored

On Saturday, May 19 the Long Island National Cemetery (LINC) became the final resting place for the ashes of 62 unclaimed veterans, along with some of the cremains of family members. Dozens of Patriot Riders, police escorts, the Shields Pipe Band, and the Joint Color Guard of Fort Hamilton escorted the hearses containing the remains from their respective funeral homes, to an assembly location off the expressway, and finally to the cemetery.

The procession passed through nearly a dozen “arches of honor,” where American flags fly high between two fire engines with ladders extended, along Wellwood Avenue in East Farmingdale, performed by many of the local fire departments.

 

Temple Beth Torah Celebrates 50 Years With Cantor Fliegelman

Written by Jane Berliner Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00
On Sunday, May 6, a golden wedding anniversary was celebrated at Temple Beth Torah (TBT) and more than 400 guests were in attendance. This was not a traditional wedding anniversary between a man and a woman, but between a temple and its beloved cantor, Kalman Fliegelman. The “marriage” contract was signed 50 years ago when the temple was a fledgling synagogue in the area. The legacy of that contract still flourishes today.

The fruits of the contract are demonstrated by more than 1,000 children who have been coached for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah by the cantor, many of whom are second- and third-generation. In addition, there have been numerous Aufrufs (ceremonies before a bride and groom get married), marriages and baby namings performed, many of which were intergenerational. The cantor was also instrumental in training 72 women to read from the Torah in preparation for a B’not Mitzvah (adult Bat Mitzvah) and in preparing women of the congregation to lead a Sabbath service.
