13 Honoring Our

PAST PRESIDENTS Thursday, June 6, 2013


Our 13 Past Presidents Alvin Rockoff, 1985-1987

When asked what major problems are facing our newly formed Federation, Alvin Rockoff stated, “We have to be able to reach out to the total Jewish community within this county to get a greater participation.�

Larry Zicklin, 1987-1989

Federation is critical for two reasons; the first is the nature of the mission to assist others both within the community and elsewhere in the world. The second is the atmosphere that is created when Jews band together to serve a communal need that transcends their own personal goals. When we engage in those activities, we build community in a way that is the envy of charitable organizations around the world.

James Stahl, 1989-1991

I applaud this Federation community as one which has continued to put to the forefront Jewish causes and concerns, thereby cementing the centrality of the organization and furthering the security of Jews here and around the world.


Susan Mandell, 1991-1993

Federation is the umbrella and the highlight of our Jewish community. We are always responsive to Jewish needs locally, nationally and overseas. By working with our synagogues and beneficiary agencies, we become a united and strong Jewish community.

Ron Grayzel, 1993-1995

We are blessed with many Jewish organizations in Middlesex County. Federation serves as a unifying force and spokesperson for the entire community with political leaders and other lay and non-Jewish communities.

Marlene Herman, 1995-1997

I hope we can continue to unite our community. We must continue to take care of the aging, the young, and the vulnerable. Where there are needs, we must partner with other agencies. As a community we can do all this together, more than we can do alone.

Roy Tanzman, 1997-1999

The Federation is the only organization that brings everything together. As the central Jewish community organization, Federation looks out for the community and the whole Jewish world.


Kenneth A. Gordon, 1999-2001

The Jewish Middlesex community is shrinking and aging. We are becoming a more elderly community and the Federation and its partner agencies, such as Jewish Family & Vocational Service, provide valuable support to our aging population.

Phoebe Wofchuck, 2001-2003

Federation offers pathways that take us out of ourselves; pathways we cannot generate ourselves; pathways that enlarge us. These pathways are what make us compassionate, innovative, nobler – they are what make us better.

L Richard Wolff, 2003-2005

As Jews, we are aware of many threats throughout the world. We cannot count on momentum to shepherd our future. We must each give from our heart and personal obligation to nurture the future of Federation and the Jewish people. A strong vibrant community is our best defense.

Philip S. Cantor, 2005-2007

The ideas of charity, justice and community are values interwoven in the fabric of Federation. Federation is the organization through which the Jewish community of Greater Middlesex can serve the needs of the Jewish community locally, nationally and throughout the world.


Lee Livingston, 2007-2010

I’ve met the most wonderful, caring, giving people in the Jewish community through my involvement with Federation. It’s at the Federation that the community can come together to respond to emergencies and needs, as well as bring people together for good things, such as PJ Library and our Special Needs programs.

Arlene Frumkin, 2010-2012

The single most significant thing about Federation is that it is an organization created, maintained and perpetuated by volunteers who determine its philosophy, objectives and programs. Anyone can join and help shape the future of our Jewish community.


How We Live Our Mission

The Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County brings together people, partners and resources to fulfill the most important needs and aspirations of our community. We care for the vulnerable locally and worldwide, forge strong connections with Israel, attract people to a more vibrant community, and inspire the next generation to embrace Jewish life.

June 6, 2013 Dear Friends, I want to personally thank each of our distinguished honorees for your support of and commitment to the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County during the past 28 years. We are blessed to have such a prestigious group of leaders to give us strength to meet the many challenges facing our community, and we are so grateful to each and every one of you. We are honoring an extraordinary team of Past Presidents tonight, beginning with Alvin Rockoff, of blessed memory. You all have well-deserved reputations for championing Jewish causes both here at home and around the world, responding to the needs of people most in need. I have been privileged to work closely with many of our outstanding Presidents. It is an honor to lead this organization founded on your collective vision and wisdom. We are fortunate to have so many homegrown leaders who continue to serve, and we look to our future as our current President Seth S. Gross and PresidentElect Mitch Frumkin provide the vision and leadership that the people of Middlesex County need and deserve. In addition to thanking all of our Past Presidents for their extraordinary commitment to the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County, I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the families of these leaders. Without their unwavering support, none of what we have achieved so far would be possible. Finally, I want to express my sincere appreciation for our hardworking staff and dedicated volunteers for their steadfast support of Tikun Olam. Together they fulfill the mission of our Federation and see that the work of our Past Presidents continues for generations to come. We thank you for supporting the extraordinary work of the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County by being part of this very special celebration. Gratefully,

Gerrie Bamira Executive Director


June 6, 2013 It is my distinct pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County’s first celebration honoring leaders in our community. And what an honor it is. After 28 years, we come together to fête all thirteen of our past presidents, an evening that is long past due. These men and women have transformed our Federation from two distinct federations into a single, strong, and visionary organization that continues to grow. Our Federation, like most, is, at its core, a place where those who have time, expertise, money, and passion come together to help those who are presently in need of a helping hand up, and to inspire volunteerism and activism. While the Federation is a wondrous place where magic happens through many partner organizations who do so much and help so many, including assisting students so they can visit and learn in Israel, ensuring Kosher meals are delivered to those who would not otherwise have access to such meals, and supporting numerous education providers in Middlesex County, this magic does not happen on its own. Many people volunteer their time and donate their money to the community through the Federation and we are grateful to them. But the real miracle workers are the Federation’s leaders and none are more important than the presidents who we acknowledge tonight. Without their hard work, guidance and direction, our Federation would not have had the impact it has since it was created in its current form in 1985. I know that each has brought his or her own unique passions and skills to the Federation, with the result being that the community has become stronger each successive year. Although I have not had the opportunity work with all of the past presidents, I have had the distinct honor and privilege of working with most and learning from all. This evening is just a small token of our appreciation for all that they have done and continue to do for us. They may be past presidents, but they continued to mentor, lead, volunteer, and inspire even after stepping down. That is the measure of a true leader. I speak on behalf of the entire community in saying that we all are standing on the shoulders of giants. From this vantage point we can see far into a future where we continue to carry out the vision of our past presidents by helping those in need at home and abroad and engaging our next generation for a vibrant Jewish future. Todah Rabbah.

Seth S. Gross President


June 6, 2013 The Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County 230 Old Bridge Turnpike South River, New Jersey 08882 Dear Friends: It is a pleasure to recognize the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County as you honor the Federation’s 13 past presidents. I have no doubt tonight will be a celebration of their accomplishments and all that the Federation has achieved. In the summer of 2002, I had the great pleasure of visiting the Federation’s office in South River, and seeing first-hand the important work that all of you do.

The success of the Jewish Federation is a testament to those who have faithfully led this organization and the positive impact of their commitment. I would like to thank all those who generously support the Federation and make their extraordinary work possible.

Thank you.

The Jewish Federation community has time and again shown how we as a people rise to so many occasions. We live generously, groom future leaders, invest in our children, demand justice for people who cannot advocate for themselves; we fund programs and services and emergency responses, and by our example create a spirit of giving and hope. How wonderful it is that today, together, we can do so much for the Jewish community.


Mazel Tov!

To the Past Presidents of The Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County We admire you & we thank you for all your hard work. You lead the way for future generations. “May you go from strength to strength”
