The Federation of Jewish Men’s Club – Hudson Valley Region “Man of the Year / Youth of the Year” event will be held on Zoom this year, on Monday, June 20th at 7pm.  We are especially honored that Congregation Shir Shalom’s honoree will be Mitchell Spiegel.


As a part of Congregation Shir Shalom’s congregational meeting, the Shir Shalom Men’s Club made a donation of several Chromebooks to the synagogue’s MAKOM Religious School. The Chromebooks are designated for use in the school’s classrooms. The donation was presented by Congregation Shir Shalom’s Men’s Club Co-Presidents, Eric Zweigbaum, Bruce Yore and Mitch Spiegel, to Mindy Sayer (representing the religious school).

Men’s Club Edmund I. Karp Memorial Award

In coordination with the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, Congregation Shir Shalom, annually presents a “Man of the Year” honor to a worthy congregant, as well as, when applicable, a “Youth of the Year” award.  These award presentations coincide with our synagogue’s annual Men’s Club “Man of the Year” Edmund I. Karp Memorial Award, “in recognition of outstanding service to Judaism and the Community.”  This award, established in 1966 and in recognition of his achievements, was named after the late Edmund Karp, an influential “charter” member of Nanuet Hebrew Center.  He was a life member of the Board, very charitable, and as a professional engineer, played an important part in the design of Nanuet Hebrew Center’s original structure on Middletown Road in Nanuet.
