Accolades are not in short supply this month for Temple Sholom, which was honored with seven awards for synagogue excellence earlier this month.

The institution was honored with the awards at the Metropolitan New York (METNY) Region of United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism’s Kallah K’tanah, at Old Westbury Hebrew Congregation in Old Westbury, N.Y.

The awards recognize and honor congregations who have developed unique, creative and dynamic programs that enhance the life of the synagogue and its congregants.

The specific programs awarded are the Religious School category: drama/music/youth choir programs; the Special Programs category: Anti-Genocide program; the Israel Awareness category: Israel Advocacy/Education/Awareness initiative; the Early Childhood Center category: Selma Maisel Nursery School; the Adult Education category: Shabbat Morning Torah Study; the Website and Social Networking category: Temple Sholom’s website and the Bulletins and Periodicals category: B-monthly bulletin, Weekly e-Bulletin, Quarterly Program Guide.

In addition to the seven awards given to Temple Sholom, congregant Sam Telzer of Riverside, was honored with an Ernest L. Rothschild Award. The award recognizes outstanding synagogue leadership throughout the conservative Judaism movement.

According to METNY, “The special efforts of recipients of this award affect and change people’s lives, as well as further Conservative Judaism in their congregations.”
