The members and friends of the Lincoln Park Jewish Center celebrated its 79th anniversary with a gala cocktail party in the synagogue’s ballroom, complete with music, dinner, dancing and visits from local political and community leaders.

Yonkers City Council President Liam McLaughlin congratulated the synagogue’s members on their longevity and successful contributions to the Yonkers community, and bestowed his best blessings for many years of future growth and longevity. McLaughlin was joined by Yonkers Brewing Company BrewEO owner John Rubbo, a Republican candidate for District 4, Julie Djonbalaj, of the Yonkers Industrial Development Agency, and David Tubiolo, a current Westchester County legislator running for re-election.

 

Lincoln Park Jewish Center President Jack Schweizer welcomed and thanked the esteemed guests for attending and showing their support. Sisterhood President Eileen Schnitzler was congratulated for yet another year of her successful efforts yielding a well-attended event. Schnitzler warmly thanked all the people who had volunteered their time and effort to help the annual event succeed, and also thanked the many members, suppliers and vendors who generously contributed.
