JCC Dancing Stars
Randy Berkow is a New Jersey native who grew up in Perth Amboy and Metuchen before moving to Bridgewater in 1988. He is best known for being the husband of Andrea and father of Rachel and Alex who spend far more time in the JCC fitness center than he does. The family has been members of the JCC since it opened in 1999. Three years ago, Andrea became the JCC’s Chief Financial Officer. The Berkows have been active members of Temple Sholom of Bridgewater since 1992. Randy has worked for Hess Corporation for many years and currently manages their Global IT operations. He enjoys helping his friends, including the JCC, with their PC problems. For many years Randy refused to even step foot on a dance floor. At the strong urging of Andrea, he went to one lesson at Arthur Murray after last year’s Dancing with the JCC Stars. Randy says, “Who knew that would lead to this?”
Stacey Glassman resides in Bridgewater with her two daughters, Paige and Emily. Stacey owns and operates Mail Perfect, a direct mail business located in Bridgewater. The Glassman family has been long standing members of the JCC and the girls have attended Camp Ruach since 2002. When Stacey was asked to participate in the second annual Dancing with the JCC Stars fundraising event, there was absolutely no hesitation on her part. “I’m in!” was her immediate response. Stacey loves to dance any chance she gets. In fact, when the music stops, Stacey doesn’t. She enjoys dancing with her family and friends and is really looking forward to adding ballroom dancing to her many skills on the dance floor. Stacey says it has always been important for her to be a wonderful role model for her daughters, and Dancing with the JCC Stars is a great way to show her girls that life is full of wonderful opportunities that need to be embraced with “optimism, enthusiasm, laughter and smiles.” Stacey is ecstatic about being a part of this fun-filled night to help raise money for The JCC Scholarship Fund and to dance the night away!
