Elan Gardens, Clarks Green was the venue for this year’s Major Gifts Event for the UJA/Federation fundraising campaign.
Ilise Rubinow, administrator, welcomed her guests including guest speaker Gil Tamary and guided them to a private dining room to enjoy a delicious dinner compliments of Elan Gardens.
Dinner conversation ranged from the political situation in the Middle East to sharing Rosh Hashanah customs and menus.
After dinner the group moved to the meeting room where others joined the evening’s program “Through the Looking Glass with Gil Tamary”. Gil told stories that only insiders can tell- personal encounters with former president of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinijad. The audience sat enthralled and asked many pertinent questions.
Coffee and homemade pastries from Elan Gardens’ kitchens were offered after while guests were able to pepper Gil for more.
Our thanks to Rabbi Samuel Sandhaus of the Jewish Home and Ilise Rubinow of Elan Gardens for a wonderful evening.
