Faces & Places – Rub-a-Dub, Shalom Club And Detroit River Cruise
Check out this gallery of photos from ORT’s Rub-a-Dub fundraiser, The Shalom Club and the Annual Detroit River Cruise!
ORT Michigan’s largest fundraiser, Rub-a-Dub, took place Aug. 21 at Franklin Hills Country Club and drew 550 guests. The event raised more than $1.7 million, making it the most successful yet. More than $62,000 was raised that night for construction of a multi-purpose auditorium in Kiryat Yam in northern Israel.
Randy Wertheimer was awarded the Hermelin ORT Legacy Award by Doreen Hermelin. With more than 20 years of involvement, he has personally raised millions of dollars for ORT’s educational programs and the underprivileged students it serves all over the world.
Event co-chairs were Jason Brooks, Kevin Elbinger and Renee Wolgin, and the Bottle Crew served as the event’s presenting sponsor.

The Shalom Club of Fox Run in Novi hosted Holocaust Memorial Center docents Aug. 16, who provided residents with a 360-degree, interactive tour of the museum for those who can’t make the trip in person. More than 100 Jewish residents of Fox Run belong to the Shalom Club.
