On Wednesday, June 8, Chabad of Port Washington held its Silver Anniversary Dinner at Chabad of Port Washington, Ballroom, 80 Shore Road, Port Washington, NY. The guests of honor for the event were Howard Fensterman and Jordan Fensterman of Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara & Wolf, LLP.
Howard and Jordan Fensterman have been longtime, active, generous members of the Chabad Port Washington community. The tribute to Howard and his son Jordan was called, “Dor L’Dor”, generation to generation and honored the continued commitment of both men to Chabad’s work and to charitable activities general.
More than 350 guests attended the event in support of both Fensterman, who are exceptionally supportive, longtime members of the community. Also in attendance were Attorneys from Abrams Fensterman Law Firm and Kevin Hingiss, Port Washington Chief of Police.
Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, chairman of Chabad World Headquarters, and noted as one of “the most influential Rabbi in America” was the honored guest speaker.
Jordan Fensterman showed a video of his family and Howard Fensterman spoke about Judaism, citing Maimonides. “Judaism has always been ahead of the world when it comes to cleanliness. We have been taught more than 850 years ago by Maimonides how to keep our bodies clean”.
The last section of the Mishnah states, “Heedfulness leads to cleanliness; cleanliness leads to purity; purity leads to abstinence; abstinence leads to holiness; holiness leads to humility; humility leads to fear of sin; fear of sin leads to saintliness; saintliness leads to (the possession) of Divine Inspiration; Divine Inspiration leads to the Resurrection of the Dead; and the Resurrection of the Dead comes through Elijah of blessed memory, amen”.
Chabad of Port Washington, founded in 1991 by Rabbi Shalom and Sara Paltiel, is nurtured and supported by concerned members of communities on Long Island’s North Shore. Chabad is dedicated to the reestablishment and strengthening of our Judaic faith, principles, identity, commitment and pride.
Today, Chabad’s center is home to a flourishing Jewish community with educational, religious and social programs for adults and children of all ages. These programs in part, have been generously supported by the Fenstermans.
