We are proud to announce that Carolyn and Gary Weinstein, long-time members of Neveh Shalom, have been chosen as the 2016 Stampfer Community Award recipients. Carolyn and Gary have been dedicated to Neveh Shalom, the Portland Jewish community, as well as the Greater Portland community for the past 55 years.
Gary has served on the boards of Neveh Shalom, Jewish Child & Family Service, Portland Agenda Club, and Oregon Bankers Association. His current involvement includes Sinai Home Care, SMART, and the Jewish Free Loan Committee, to name several. With Carolyn, he has co-chaired Federation’s Super Sunday and volunteered for the Goose Hollow Family Shelter.
Carolyn’s community service has made a resounding impact. She has lent her talents and skills to more than 25 organizations, taking leadership roles in all. She has served on the board of Neveh Shalom (1970-1976; 2013 - present), during which she co-chaired a special weekend honoring Rabbi Stampfer for his 60 years of community service and chaired the wrap-up Capitol Campaign for the synagogue. Carolyn is a recent recipient of the “Good Neighbor Award,” presented by the Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors as well as the Kipnis-Wilson/Friedland National Lion of Judah Award, presented by the Jewish Federations of North America.
The Stampfer Community Award dinner will take place at 6:00pm on Thursday, November 3, at Neveh Shalom. Come join your Neveh Shalom community as we celebrate this amazing couple! RSVP: http://tinyurl.com/stampferaward2016
