2018 Gala Honoring Dan Leemon

Join the celebration as we honor CBJ’s beloved DAN LEEMON at our largest fundraiser and community event. 

Dan has been an integral part of the Congregation Beth Jacob community for over 32 years. He has volunteered hundreds of hours in many ways including leading the search committee that hired Rabbi Ezray.

With patience, warmth and humor Dan has led our Junior Congregation for over 20 years. He creates a welcoming environment for our kids to foster their confidence and Jewish voice.

The “Different Service,” which he established in 2009 and has been leading ever since, has been “standing room only” during the High Holy Days and has been woven into the fabric of the diverse service options CBJ offers on the holidays. His knowledge of the Torah, and his entertaining reflections, creates a special and meaningful service, cherished by our community, young and old.

Dan is a pillar of Congregation Beth Jacob. He is a prime example of how one person can have such a huge impact on so many. We are fortunate to be able to honor Dan and thank him for all he has done for our community.

Our evening Gala is an opportunity to celebrate as a community, connecting with familiar faces and making new friends. Have fun bidding on silent auction items over cocktails followed by a seated dinner with hilarious Heads-or-Tails and crucial Fund-A-Need. Please note that this year, we will be strictly adhering to a maximum of 300 ticket sold, which will be allocated on a first-come basis. As alcohol will be served at the Gala, this is a 21-and-over event.

Early bird tickets will be $150 per person. After January 7, the ticket price will be $175.
