Jewish Federation to recognize local honorees
NEWBURGH (October 24) - The Jewish Federation announces that Dale & Irving Zuckerman and Robin & Alan Zuckerman will be our Major Gifts honorees in recognition of their support of the Orange Jewish community and the community at large. The event will be held on Sunday afternoon, November 3rd at the studio of Andrew Lattimore in Cornwall. Mr. Lattimore is considered on of America’s greatest living artists. He will speak about the Nazi theft of Jewish art.
Alan and Irving Zuckerman grew up in Monroe surrounded by their loving family. Together they own and operate Verticon, Ltd., headquartered in Monroe. Verticon is a general contracting and full-service construction firm with more than 75 years of industry experience. Verticon, Ltd. is solidly rooted in the Hudson Valley and responsible for many of its most recognizable construction and development projects.
Robin Zuckerman, a retired senior appellate paralegal, was born and raised in Brooklyn. She met Alan at a bungalow colony as a teenager during a summer spent in Monroe. Together they raised three children with a strong foundation of a Jewish education and pride in their Jewish culture.
Dale Zuckerman, a retired teacher, was also born in Brooklyn but her family moved to Monroe at the age of six. She met Irving after college and married a short time afterwards. It is one of the greatest joys in Dale and Irving’s lives to see the wonderful adults their two children have become.
Joyce Waschitz, Executive Director of the Jewish Federation states. “We are proud to give these generous and dedicated people an opportunity to be honored by the Jewish and Orange County community. Because of the generous support from people like these, the Jewish Federation will continue to be able to support the needs of the community".
Since 1977, the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County has been working together with community members to build and support a strong Jewish community – enriching people’s lives, helping those in need, and embracing new Jewish families. Each year our recipient organizations in Orange County, subsidized by generous Federation funding, help tens of thousands of people here at home. As part of the Jewish Federations of North America, we support hundreds of thousands more with our humanitarian initiatives around the world.
