120 people gathered at Shomrei on Saturday March 4th to honor Rich Epstein and Susan Lazev at “Mensches & Martinis” our annual Honor Night celebration. Accompanied by the marvelous Stepansky-Posada Jazz Ensemble, the evening began with an elegant cocktail hour followed by catered feast.
The food was fantastic and the evening was filled with warmth, good spirit and dancing! A long and exuberant “Hora” followed the brief program which included a presentation “Changing Your Perception of Perception” given by Rich’s brother, Professor Jules Epstein.
Congrats and Yasher Koach to the Mensches & Martinis committee:
Sylvia Cohn, Marge Wise, Béla Schwartz, Jennifer Moses, Gail Stocks, Merle Martin, Dan Marcus, Lisa and Marc Chalom, Sara Ann and Howie Erichson, Rachel Kanter, Sally Goodgold, John Lasiter and especially to Co-chairs Liza Cohn and June Zimmerman.
