Joan and Alan Bernikow Jewish Community Center

July 25, 2011 Dear Friends, Welcome to the 31st Annual Golf & Tennis Outing for the benefit of the Isador Aberlin-Ed Rovner Memorial Scholarship Fund. This day has been set aside for some great golf and tennis while supporting the scholarship fund, and to honor the memory of two of the JCC's most beloved members. For our friends who do not attend the outing, but lend support through sponsorships, a special thank you for your generosity. Izzy Aberlin, the JCC's treasurer for many years, was deeply committed to fulfilling the camp and preschool needs of deserving children. Ed Rovner, a lifelong friend and fellow JCC Board member with Izzy, was always a major supporter of our outing and so his name was added to the event's title on his passing. Since its inception, the scholarship fund has provided more than $1,100,000 to Staten Island children. This year, we are proud to honor individuals and institutions who have worked tirelessly and given so generously to improving the lives of the children of Staten Island. Our deepest appreciation goes to Alan Poritz, co-chair of this event who will receive the “JCC Distinguished Service Award”, Staten Island Chamber of Commerce who will receive the “JCC Pride of Staten Island Award”and to Community Resources, which will receive the “JCC Community Service Award”. We join in showing our support and admiration for these most worthy recipients. As chair of this year's event, I want to acknowledge the hard work of the terrific committee. So, thank you one and all! Your generosity makes it all possible and the scholarships that result make it worthwhile. Thank you, Robin Lefkowitz, Co-Chair

He also owns his own company, Simply Built, a licensed home improvement contracting company. Both children are recent newlyweds: Rachel to Brian Siller and Matthew to Emma Waters. Community Resources Community Resources will receive the “JCC Community Service Award.” Established in 1953, they are one of the metropolitan area’s premiere comprehensive providers for people with developmental disabilities. For almost sixty years, they have provided opportunities and experiences that people of all ages and all levels of ability need to reach their potential and lead rewarding lives. In keeping with their mission of assisting all members of the community, in 2003, they entered into an informal arrangement with Special Tees, a screen printing and embroidery program/business that grew out of efforts at South Beach Psychiatric Center to provide training and employment opportunities for individuals with a mental health diagnosis who were traditionally considered unemployable. In 2004, Special Tees and Community Resources officially merged. Staten Island Chamber of Commerce The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce will receive the “JCC Pride of Staten Island Award.” They have been serving the borough since 1895. The Chamber acts as the borough’s business resource center providing business referrals daily, networking opportunities, legislative involvement, community and media access and a “Help Desk” hotline. Their committees work hard addressing issues that affect the most current needs of the community, and they offer a wide variety of special events for their membership all while guaranteeing that the best interests of the community at large are served.
