Mazel tov

Put your hands together for Rabbi Dr. Alvin Kass. The good rabbi was feted for 36 years of service to the community at the East Midwood Jewish Center’s 90th annual dinner dance.

Toby Sanchez, co-president of the center, told Standing O the dinner dance is the highlight of the social season, and a tribute to Rabbi Kass who has contributed so much to the center. Standing O thinks that’s a great way to celebrate!

Rabbi Kass teaches adult-education classes, has officiated at hundreds of bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings, and baby-namings, in addition to devoting his time and talents to the NYPD, where he is the longest-serving chaplain in the agency’s history. In 2001, Rabbi Kass was promoted to chief chaplain — the first chaplain to achieve the lofty position. He is also past president of the Brooklyn Board of Rabbis and the New York Board of Rabbis, and an editor at the United Synagogue Review and the Mercas newsletter.

East Midwood Jewish Center [1625 Ocean Ave. and E. 20th Street in Midwood (718) 338–3800].
