Yad Ezra hosted its annual fundraiser Oct. 8 at Adat Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills. Honorees were Ellen and David Sherman; co-chairs were Karen and Jeff Schoenberg, and Larry Tisdale.
Revenue raised is used to purchase groceries distributed to the 1,300 client families who come to Yad Ezra every month.
A brief program paid tribute to the Shermans; recognized Addie Levine, recipient of the Diane and Emery (z”l) Klein Volunteer of the Year Award; gave details of Yad Ezra’s latest initiative, the Poland Pantry Project, from Board President Jeff Supowit; and honored Executive Director Lea Luger for 25 years of service.
David Sherman joined Yad Ezra’s board in 2013, has served on a variety of committees and was instrumental in helping present Yad Ezra’s plan for its Giving Gardens to the Fisher Foundation to consider funding. He and Ellen have been strong advocates and supporters of Yad Ezra, along with a variety of other efforts to help those vulnerable in the greater Detroit community.
