Congregation toasts four members at gala

Congregation Beth Am celebrated its B’nai Mitzvah year at the Carmel Valley Campus by honoring four special people at its annual fundraising dinner dance on May 16 — tutors Hillary Liber, Barbara Pardo, Janet Rosenfield and Judy Sperling.

The women were honored for their dedication to hundreds of students over thousands of hours. Rabbi David Kornberg said of their work, “There is nothing quite like enabling someone to achieve a meaningful task, to give them the self-confidence and skills required to succeed. These four women do that every day, and they do it with care, love of Judaism, and a passion for teaching.”

The party was held at the synagogue at 5050 Del Mar Heights Road and featured food by Shalom Catering, music from DJ Craig, and silent and live auctions with auctioneers/sportscasters Scott Kaplan and Jim Lampley.
