2011 Song of Miriam Award: Havurah Shalom Honors Fran Berg
May 3, 2011
Each year, the Jewish Women’s Roundtable invites Jewish organizations in our community to participate in their annual volunteer recognition day for Jewish Women. Essentially, we come together to honor women who have “made a difference” in the Jewish community bycontributing time and energy through their various volunteer efforts.
This year, Havurah is very proud to announce and recognize one of its long-time members, Fran Berg, as the recipient of the 19th Annual Song of Miriam Award. As many of you know, Fran has been very dedicated to Havurah by serving on numerous committees, her involvement in multiple programs, and organizing countless events.
Most recently, Fran stepped up as Auction Committee Co-Chair to spearhead the “Chai Ho!” Havurah Auction and Round Up 2011 this year. She answered the call toassist with this major biennial fundraiser for Havurah. In addition, she has been active in Shabbat School, the B’nai Mitzvah Committee, the Transition Project, among other programs and activities. Fran is a model example of a member who embodies the deeply-held values of Havurah.
Please join us in celebrating Fran by attending the 19th Annual “Song of Miriam” Awards Brunch on Sunday, June 5, 10:00 a.m., at the Mittleman Jewish Community Center. Registration and event information is available here.
“Thanks again for your outstanding service to Havurah, Fran!”
