The Young Israel of West Hempstead held its 58th Anniversary Dinner on Sunday, February 16 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.

“We are gratified by the beautiful response of the wonderful members of our shul,” said Lester Bleich, shul president.
Rabbi Yehuda Kelemer and Assistant Rabbi Josh Goller presented awards to the honorees. It was truly an evening that was “out of this world.”
