Mishloach Manot poems are Simone's forte.
She guides us to lands afar to eat foods gourmet.
In the realm of rhyming she has great expertise.
Her Purim poems are gems, they always do please.
Mark is a doer, a competent former president.
He's dedicated to our shul, it's quite evident.
They're a lovely couple with a fine brood of four.
We wish them Good Health, Nachas, and Blessings galore.

Kol hakavod to
Simone and Mark,
who each and together exemplify what it is to be a leader. Over many years, you've stepped in wherever there was a need, without being asked and without seeking recognition. Simone, you energized every project you took on and every committee that you chaired. In your Women's League leadership and in all that you've done since, you've balanced kindness, creativity and fun. You give real thought and consideration to everything that you do. Mark, you devoted yourself to YINR from the start and you raised the bar for us in every way. Each communication that goes out, from announcements to important documents, has your imprint - organized, concise, effective. You give of your time freely, not stopping until the job is done, and done well. You have been wholly dedicated to the success of the Shul; we have shared that dedication, and it has been a privilege to work with you and learn from you for the last 10+ years. May the Abishter give you His Bracha for a lifetime of Hatzlacha and Nachas from the Kinder.
Michelle and Rafi,
from the moment you arrived, you jumped in and made yourselves available for anything the shul needed. You've shown our young members, by example, what it means to be part of a community. We look forward to many more years of your leadership of YINR. May you continue to go from strength to strength.

You exhibited extraordinary leadership, successfully navigated very difficult and sensitive situations, and helped to architect our growth and our future. Your willingness to always be available for each of us, every hour of the day and night, set a very high standard of generosity and selflessness and set the tone for our team. We were all fortunate to work with you and be the beneficiaries of your leadership, your dedication, your energy, and your talents.

To our Dearest Friend, Colleague, and Teacher Michelle,
 
Your unyielding and unrelenting work ethic, your constant high energy, your unreserved and complete commitment to colleagues and friends, your determined and enduring devotion to ensure that each child is learning and growing at their needed and appropriate level, your focused commitment to detail of every kind, your creativity and strong problem-solving and organization skills, your ability to understand and appreciate the big picture of day-to-day life, and your ingenuity and propensity to navigate, literally and figuratively, hundreds of cars on a yearly basis to ensure that everybody gets home safely, are only a few of the reasons why we admire you each and every day.
 
It comes as no surprise to us that you are being honored by your community with the Young Leadership award, where we know that these admirable qualities help you make the New Rochelle and broader Jewish community a happier, safer, and better place for everyone.
 
All of us at the ELC and your SAR family wish you the most heartfelt Mazel Tov and congratulations and we are so happy to celebrate with you.
 
Mazal Tov to you and Rafi!

Even though
Rafi and Michelle
Keep a low profile, they are active leaders
who roll up their sleeves and always get involved
with their community. They contribute practically
and their no-nonsense attitude is the driving force
behind so many initiatives.
 
We are proud to be friends with them, and we have seen them
dominate several neighborhoods over the last decade.
 
Huge Mazel Tov!
