YI of North Bellmore honors its founders


Cultimating its 50th anniversary celebration, the Young Israel of North Bellmore held a brunch to honor its founding members.

The seven founding couples who helped launch an Orthodox shul in North Bellmore were were Susan and Ira Bromley, Rae and Charles Glickman, Gertrude and Edward Kalish, Elinor and Herbert Lifschitz, Vivian and Samuel Mannis, Laura and Dr. Harold Nierenberg, and Elinor and Sheldon Wortzman.

The brunch was attended by some of these founding members and their families, as well as current members and friends of the congregation.

The Young Israel of North Bellmore is an active congregation, led by Rabbi Chaim Bogopulsky, who is only the third spiritual leader to serve there.
