Englewood Hospital Honored by Jewish Family Service

Board Chairman Jay Nadel and President and CEO Douglas A. Duchak with fellow five-year award recipients Sheryl Sarnack and Stuart Kahan and JFS President Ilene S. Gelman.

On December 4, Englewood Hospital hosted the cocktail reception for Night of 100 Dinners, the annual signature event of Jewish Family Service of Bergen and North Hudson (JFS). Guests gathered in the Ferolie Family Gallery before dinner at various homes. The fundraiser spotlighted the issue of hunger in the community.

"It is an honor to be able to partner with Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, as well as with our other sponsors, hosts and guests, to help address the issue of hunger in our community," said JFS Executive Director Lisa Fedder. The Medical Center was recognized for supporting the event as a sponsor for five years.

The reception included “hadlakat neirot Chanukah," or the lighting of the Chanukah candles, emphasizing the importance of Jewish tradition and the family in the work of JFS.
