The first annual Keren Simchas Chosson V’Kallah awards dinner took place on Motzoei Shabbos Hey Cheshvan 5773. Almost four hundred people attended. The dinner celebrated KSCVK’s founder Devorah Benjamin’s Ruby birthday.
She was given the lifetime achievement award for her continuous efforts in assisting young couples with their weddings. Presenting the awards was KSCVK’s co- director Shmuly Brashevitzky. The Chessed award was given to NYPD officer Shimon Strauss for his long time support of KSCVK. Other honorees included Chaim Moshe Jacobson of the Young Leadership committee, who came in full force to show their support. Finally, the Hakoras Hatov Award was given to Rabbi Shmuel Lew.
Rabbi Lipa Brennan chaired the evening. The entertainment included Yossi Cohen Orchestra, Choni Zuker and Chazzon Dovid Caytak. One of the highlights of the evening was the video presentation produced by Moishe Lew and Mendel Katzman of young couple, Baruch and Zehava Arky’s journey to the chuppah with the assistance of Devorah Benjamin.
We would also like to thank Moshe Frank chairman of the Young Leadership Committee for his efforts in making this evening possible.
