Achiezer volunteers and board members joined together for an annual evening of appreciation, on the third night of Chanukah.
The diversity of Achizer volunteers spans a large spectrum, including drivers, doctors, counselors, mentors, surgeons, educational consultants, lawyers, cooks, financial advisers, coordinators, and more. They are available to assist members of the community around the clock.
“We’re humbled by the incredible turnout,” said Rabbi Boruch Ber Bender, founder and president of Achiezer. “Without [our volunteers], we would not be able to accomplish even one iota of what we do.”
Rabbi Bender spoke of the tremendous value of Achiezer’s work.
John Pizzi, master ventriloquist and comedian, entertained the guests.
Achiezer thanks Scott Fagan of Traditions for sponsoring the very generous fleishig buffet and dessert spread and Moshe Ratner and Yoeli Steinberg of Gourmet Glatt of Cedarhurst for the beautiful sushi spread.
