HONORING THE VOLUNTEERS: ESRA, the English Speaking Residents Association, honored over a dozen people at its biannual Volunteer Award event in Ra’anana last Sunday. “The main reason they volunteer is to help others, but they also benefit from doing it,” ESRA national chairman Baruch Tanaman told Haaretz. “There’s nothing like volunteering to keep you young.”
To wit, he noted that the winners of the Chairman’s Award, Betty and Ed Wolfe, have their 70th wedding anniversary coming up. They were honored for “their exceptional volunteering in the development and maintenance of the ESRA shops.” The President’s Award, meanwhile, went to Mike and Adele Rubin for their “ongoing commitment to ensuring the financial well-being of ESRA.”
The other honorees were Naomi Aharoni, Joseph Beenstock, Fonda Dubb, Marise Gordon, Shuka Harel, Ilana Harf, Carole Kaye, Susan Kurnedz, Nancy Milgram, Mike Porter, Sally Sher and Frank Taylor.
