Jackie and Larry Horn
Jackie and Larry Horn, now seven years past their “double chai” membership anniversary, have been longstanding members of Temple B’nai Or since 1975.  Jackie and Larry have both served on the TBO Board and Jackie, a long-time TBO Bulletin editor, also served on committees for the TBO 50th Anniversary, previous Tikkun Olam events and the 2012 Temple golf outing.  She was also a member of the Torah cover committee and worked with the MetroWest Historical Society to establish Temple’s historical archive. 
Both Jackie and Larry have given High Holiday appeals and have supported
every Temple initiative in recent memory.
 
Jackie and Larry have two children, Debbie and David, both of whom were Bar/Bat Mitzvahed and Confirmed at TBO.  Debbie, a high school teacher, and her husband, Ron, were married at TBO and have two sons, Jacob and Ben.  David is a financial advisor and adjunct professor at Columbia Business School and was a member of TBO’s first Orim class. He and his wife, Kristin, have three children, Vivian, Max, and Zoe.
 
Jackie is retired from the Warner Lambert Company where she was a systems analyst.  A very active contributor to the community, Jackie served as Regional President of Women’s American ORT and also served on the Special Gifts Committee for her recent Vassar College reunion.  She has been a long-time volunteer at the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Lakeside Condominium Trust in Lenox, Massachusetts.
 
Larry is a Senior Partner at the law firm of Sills, Cummis & Gross which has offices in Newark, Princeton, and New York.  He is Chair of the firm’s Business Crimes and Tax Litigation Practice groups.  Prior to entering private practice, he was an Assistant United States Attorney. Like Jackie, Larry gives back extensively to the community, serving as a member of the Board of Overseers of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 2011, serving as a member of the Council of Trustees of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and having served on the Advisory Board of the Princeton University Class of 1966.  In 2016, Larry was selected by the Association of the Federal Bar of the State of New Jersey to be the recipient of its Professional Lawyer of the Year Award for setting an example for others in the profession and being respected for character, competence and professional demeanor.
 
Jackie and Larry remain committed to giving back, and are role models at both Temple B’nai Or and in the community more broadly for both philanthropy and personal commitment to make their local area, and the world, a better place.
 
 
Poppy and Richard Segal
Poppy and Richard Segal, Temple B’nai Or members since 2006, are both New Jersey natives and currently reside in New Vernon, following long-time residence in Livingston where they raised their two daughters, Cory and Randi.  Poppy and Richard came to B’nai Or from Congregation Beth El in South Orange and Temple Beth Shalom in Livingston after a search for a synagogue closer to their new home.  They fell in love with the TBO services and have been members and dedicated supporters of Temple B’nai Or for over eleven years.  In addition to their charitable support of TBO, Richard served on the Board of Trustees and Poppy co-chaired a building fund raising event.
 
Over the years, Poppy and Richard have been involved in numerous Jewish and Community causes.  As supporters of Israel Bonds they co-chaired the start of the Israel Bond Young Leadership in Livingston, they generously donated to the building fund at Temple Beth Shalom in memory of their beloved Rabbi Samuel Cohen, and they sponsored three children at the Girls Town Jerusalem orphanage which cares for Jewish children in need from over thirty-two different countries. Together with their family, they donated a playground for underprivileged children in Jerusalem and donated a library to the Yemin Orde Youth Village (which provides a home, school and safe haven to at-risk immigrant youths in Israel). They also supported a young girl escaping war torn Bosnia, making it possible for her to attend college in Philadelphia.
 
Poppy has also been very active herself in both Jewish and secular causes.  She sat on the Sisterhood Board at Temple Beth Shalom, where both her daughters became Bat Mitzvahs, and co-chaired the Women’s Country Club Day Golf for the United Jewish Appeal.  While their children were in high school, Poppy served as Vice President and President of the Livingston High School Home and School Association. And following in her mother-in-law’s footsteps, Poppy served as President of the Friends of The Children’s Institute and also served seventeen years on the board of directors for the Children’s Institute, now known as Spectrum 360, a school serving children and young adults with special needs.  
 
On the professional front, Richard recently retired on his 50th anniversary of working in their family business, Segal and Segal, a development and real estate management firm. Like Poppy, he has been active in local causes, ranging from serving as treasurer of both the Livingston Little League and the “Big L Club” for Livingston High School, and Richard was a founding member of the Livingston Girls Softball League.  He also served as president of the New Jersey Apartment Counsel. 
 
Poppy and Richard are also strong supporters of the St. Barnabas Medical Center, Morristown Medical Center, Food Allergy Institute at Mount Sinai, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Summit Speech School for deaf children, and The Cure for Breast Cancer Foundation.
 
In addition to their two daughters, they have two son-in-laws, Greg and David, and four wonderful grandchildren, Jared, Ellie, Sydnie and Max.  Following in the footsteps of their parents, Poppy and Richard’s children have become active members at Temple B’nai Or, serving on the board and various committees.  Their grandchildren have attended the Frances and Herbert Brody Pre-School and the Joel and Helen Jacobs Religious School, the oldest having celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in 2016.
 
Poppy and Richard’s selfless support of Temple B’nai Or and other charitable organizations continues to be an inspiration for their children, grandchildren, and the community at large.  They are great examples of the premise that concerned people can make positive differences today that will also reverberate for future generations.   They are proud that their example has encouraged their own children to become involved in numerous causes and become similar role models for their grandchildren.
 
 
Marcie and Glenn Yarnis
Marcie and Glenn Yarnis have been extremely active members since the day they joined Temple B’nai Or 17 years ago.  After moving to Morris Township from New York City to raise their children, Samantha and Josh, Marcie and Glenn searched for a Temple and immediately felt welcomed by the clergy and the wonderfully warm congregation.  And they haven’t looked back since!  Temple has not only been a wonderful place for spirituality and worship, but has also provided deep social connections and a place of belonging, where their entire family will always feel welcome.
 
Marcie has been deeply involved at Temple for years, running and helping with many temple events and fundraisers, serving on the redesign committee for our sanctuary Ark, and most recently chairing the Sanctuary Renovation Project, a two year effort to address the physical and spiritual needs of our temple members and clergy as well as overall beautification of the space.  Marcie also extends her volunteering activities beyond Temple to include community organizations as well.  At Morris Medical Center, Marcie serves on the Woman’s Health Philanthropy Council, and with the Morris School District, a deep passion for her, she has served in leadership positions on many Home and School Executive Boards, implemented and ran a reading program over a six year period in her local K-5 schools, served on the Visionary Planning Board at Frelinghuysen Middle School, and is currently serving in her 11th year as a trustee on the Morris Educational Foundation.
 
Glenn, who has spent the last 15 years as a private investor following a career in structured finance at several major banks, has been an active volunteer as well.  He is a former member of the TBO Board of Directors and TBO Executive Committee, and has also been on various Temple committees since becoming a member.  In addition, Glenn spent four years on the NJ Board of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is currently on the Morristown Medical Center Endowment Committee and the Morristown Educational Foundation Investment Committee.  A Lehigh University graduate, Glenn is also on Lehigh Business School’s Dean’s Advisory Council.
 
Together Marcie and Glenn have helped to establish the Yarnis Cardiac Rehabilitation Center and the Yarnis Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Rehabilitation Center at Morristown Medical Center, both endeavors close to their hearts, and enabling hundreds of people annually to be helped with a range of health issues.  Marcie and Glenn also both sit on the Cornell Family Fellows and Parent’s Committee at Cornell University.
 
Beyond their personal involvement with Temple, TBO has played an important role in the life of Marcie and Glenn’s children.  Samantha and Josh both became a Bat and Bar Mitzvah at TBO, and both later served for five years as Madrachims.  Josh was confirmed at Temple as well.  Both children have carried forth the commitment to giving back which was role modeled by their parents.  Josh served as Booty Youth Group President and now holds a leadership position at his Hillel chapter in college.   Samantha volunteers at a high school in the Bronx, working with underprivileged juniors and seniors who aspire to go to college.  Marcie and Glenn feel immense joy that through the foundation and teachings that their children obtained at Temple, Josh and Samantha are paying it forward in keeping with the tradition of Tikkun Olam.
