Cedarhurst 9/11 Ceremony 

On September 11th, we observe a day of remembrance, not solely for the tragic terrorist attack that befell our great nation, but as a day to honor and pay tribute to our fallen heroes and loved ones. Twenty-two years have passed since that momentous day, and once again, the Village of Cedarhurst hosted its annual memorial ceremony at the 9/11 Memorial within Andrew J. Parise Park.

Religious leaders and elected officials attended the ceremony to share words of inspiration, healing, and prayer with our community, paying homage to the fallen heroes and loved ones we hold dear.

With each toll of the bell, the Village paid its heartfelt respect to the individuals who perished I the collapsed towers: Kevin O’Rourke, Joseph Rivelli Jr., Thomas Jurgens, Neil D. Levin, Bettina Browne Radburn, Ira Zaslow, and Howard Selwyn. Their names shall forever stand as a testament to the enduring legacy we deeply respect and uphold within our Village.

Mayor, Benjamin Weinstock, and the Cedarhurst Board of Trustees would like to personally thank the Lawrence-Cedarhurst Fire Department, Meadowmere Fire Department, American Legion Lawrence-Cedarhurst Post 339, Rabbi Moshe Monczyk Executive Director of LI Shulamith Schools, Deacon Tom Costello of the R.C. Parishes of the Five Towns, Lawrence High School, Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman, Congressman Anthony D’Esposito, Senator Patricia Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick, Assemblyman Ari Brown and TOH Councilwoman Melissa “Missy” Miller for their participation in the program.
