Rabbi Mitchell M. Hurvitz of Temple Sholom in Greenwich accepts award at 2014’s AJC Gala at the Ritz Carlton in Westchester, N.Y.

Westchester County declared May 30 to Rabbi Hurvitz Day as Rabbi Mitchell M. Hurvitz of Greenwich’s Temple Sholom was honored at the annual AJC Gala.

The announcement coincided with the AJC Westchester (Global Jewish Advocacy) Gala held May 28, where Rabbi Hurvitz was honored for his outstanding contributions to the Jewish community, and to the community at large.

Westchester County legislators passed the initiative led by County Board of Legislators Chair Michael Kaplowitz. On May 30, a digital screen at the Westchester County Center spread the message to the public reading, “Westchester County Center Declares May 30, 2014 Rabbi Hurvitz Day.”

A sell-out crowd of more than 400 supporters celebrated Rabbit Hurvitz’s achievements at the Westchester Ritz Carlton. Attendees contributed a record-breaking amount of funding to the AJC’s mission of improving the status of Jewish people and Israel, and aiding global human rights initiatives.

Rabbi Hurvitz was introduced by Rev. Msgr. Alan F. Detscher of Saint Catherine of Siena Church in Greenwich prior to receiving his award.

“I was extremely honored to be recognized by AJC for my rabbinic works over these past 20 years in both the Jewish and general community. AJC is a wonderful partner with Temple Sholom, and I look forward to our continued mutual efforts on behalf of Global Jewish and interfaith works,” Rabbi Hurvitz said after being recognized.
