Cedarhurst’s Village Board Meeting held on November 6, 2023 became a memorable occasion as Mayor Benjamin Weinstock & the Board of Trustees honored Lawrence-Cedarhurst Firefighters Shoshanna Weiner and Jason Stukes, who recently journeyed to Israel to assist in the war efforts. 

Their remarkable response and willingness to lend a helping hand in times of crisis exemplify the true spirit of selflessness and compassion. The Village extends its deepest appreciation for their bravery, dedication, and the positive impact they have made.

The Mayor and Village Board also took this opportunity to recognize the Chiefs of the Lawrence-Cedarhurst Fire Department, Michael Beilinson, Meyer Adler & Joseph McHugh for their steadfast support and cooperation in fostering the ties between our community & Israel.  

They also extended the Village’s heartfelt appreciation to Cantor Joel Kaplan who led the crowd in emotional renditions of Kel Molleh Rachamin and a Mishaberach L’Chayalim at a pro-Israel rally that was held in Cedarhurst on October 15, 2023. Cantor Kaplan’s beautiful voice and soulful interpretation, inspired and united attendees at the rally, spreading a message of hope, solidarity, and shared values.
