Welcome to the JCC MetroWest Gala ’ L Dor V’Dor ­. From Generation to Generation Our Distinguished Honorees JCC MetroWest is pleased to honor Ruth & Marty Barber for their longstanding dedication to the MetroWest Jewish community and committed service to JCC MetroWest. Marty serves as Secretary of the Board of Trustees of JCC Metro West and is also a linchpin of our Finance and Executive Committees. Simultaneously, he serves as Vice President of the Jewish Community Housing Corporation Board. The Jewish community has benefited from Marty’s lifetime of service, as he has been President of the Jewish Community Foundation of MetroWest, President of Temple Beth Shalom, Vice President of Daughters of Israel, Treasurer of UJC MetroWest (now Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest), and Vice President of the American Jewish Congress. The secular community has also benefited from Marty’s talents, as he has served as a member of the New Jersey State Board of Higher Education, Treasurer of the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Newark, and Treasurer of the Liberty Park Monument Committee. Ruth serves on the Board of Women’s Philanthropy and is a member of the Israel Program Center Committee. She has been a member of the Board of Trustees of UJC, co-chaired the Lion of Judah Sapphire category, is a past Board member of the Community Relations Committee and Jewish Education Association, and is a past Vice President of Business & Professional Women. Both Marty and Ruth have forged successful professional careers in addition to their distinguished records of community service. Marty is currently an officer at DanJon Management Corporation, a real estate management company, and is a founding partner of Wiss and Company, LLP Certified Public Accountants. He retired from Wiss in 1996. Ruth has had a distinguished career as an educator. Marty and Ruth are the proud parents of three children and six brilliant grandchildren.

Neeli & Michael Margolis, our distinguished honorees, have touched so many lives through their leadership in the MetroWest community and committed service to JCC MetroWest. Michael has served on the JCC MetroWest Board of Trustees since 2012. He is a Managing Director in Roth Capital Partners’ Healthcare Investment Banking Group. He also serves on the Advisory Board of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s School of Pharmacy. In the local community, Michael volunteers as a manager for the Livingston Travel Soccer Program. Neeli has been a member of the JCC MetroWest Board of Trustees since 2010. She was the first organizer and Chairperson for JCC MetroWest’s annual Toast of the Town event and continues to serve on its committee. She is also an active volunteer at the Burnet Hill Elementary School Home and School Association. Neeli is an attorney with her own practice, focusing on Divorce and Family Mediation. Neeli and Michael are members of Temple Beth Shalom and Ahavat Torah­—Chabad at Short Hills, as well as Cedar Hill Golf & Country Club. Their daughter, Maya, currently attends the JCC MetroWest Early Childhood Program. Their sons, Adam and Nate, are JCC preschool graduates.


Dear Friends, We have just finished celebrating the holiday of Passover, a holiday demonstrating the importance of L’Dor V’Dor, from Generation to Generation, for the Jewish People. Time and again, this beautiful concept, symbolizing survival and continuity, is central to Jewish lives. And so is it central to the JCC. This JCC has survived and thrived because generations of leaders engaged younger leaders who engaged younger leaders. Tonight we honor two couples who have done just that, and have done it in a remarkable way. Marty and Ruth Barber are pinnacles of our MetroWest community. They are people who daily commit acts of loving kindness, in their low-key way. They are not satisfied with the here and now, but strive to ensure that our future is a strong one. Truly, they are role models of what it means to be a builder for future generations. Neeli and Michael Margolis represent that next generation. A longtime JCC family, they have worked tirelessly to strengthen this J, to engage other younger families, and to ensure our programs remain top quality. Full of ideas, they push us and challenge us, as all younger generations should, to remain fresh and excellent. A successful organization needs both generations—the wisdom of the acknowledged leaders and the excitement of the emerging leaders. We are absolutely thrilled that Marty and Ruth and Neeli and Michael have honored the J with all their hard work, ideas, leadership, and heart. It is with a great source of pride that we honor them tonight. Thank you for leading us from strength to strength. 

Joyce Goldstein Co-Chair, Board of Trustees

Lawrence Gotfried Co-Chair, Board of Trustees


Dear Friends, Tonight we gather together to celebrate the joy of the generational transition of leadership that validates the vibrancy of our agency, recognizes the wisdom and dedication of those who have led the way to today, and revels in the commitment of an emerging leadership that will guide our agency and our community to a bright and fulfilling future. “Hineh mah tov u’mahnayim shevet achim gam yachad”­—Behold how wonderful and how pleasing it is when we sit together—as the Jewish People—in absolute unity and togetherness. Our JCC is the place where we can transcend silos and become engaged in intra-group learning, socialization, recreation and celebration as a part of a broader Jewish community. This pluralistic gathering space emulates, updates and continues the time-honored Jewish tradition of making available a communal assembly space, which in today’s Jewish world encourages us to value the difference of others, while we unite under a common banner. Our JCC is where the question, “What kind of Jew are you?” may elicit a response of, “I’m just Jewish.” It is a place where we innately comprehend that our “strength” is our diversity and our “glue” is our Peoplehood. We want to thank each and every one of you for joining us this evening as we celebrate the gift of leadership personified by the Barbers and Margolises, the joy of Yom Ha’Atzmaut and the critical role our agency plays in the framework of our community. “Hineh mah tov u’mahnayim shevet achim gam yachad.” It truly is wonderful to share tonight with you!
