TEMPLE B’NAI ABRAHAM will honor its immediate past president, Julie A. Silbermann, at “A Groovy Gala” on Saturday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the synagogue in Livingston.

The ’60s-themed evening, “A Night of Peace, Love & Music,” featuring live music, food, and drink, is open to the public.

Silbermann, a Livingston resident, previously served as B’nai Abraham vice president and held several temple leadership positions, including board of education chair and PTA president. She serves on the Initiative for Children’s Health Sub-Committee at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the center’s Dean’s Council. Her husband, Max, is also an active congregant and a committee chair.

Upon leaving the presidency in January, Silbermann said, “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my tenure as president of Temple B’nai Abraham. I have tried to do my job with enthusiasm, inclusiveness, and integrity,” and went on to wish her successor, Bruce Greene, “all the best.” 

The event is stewarded by TBA ways and means cochairs Erica Facktor, Amanda Fiverson, and Illana Lebersfeld with journal chair Tara Heyderman and catering cochairs Joni Cohen and Renee Cohen.

The cost is $100, which includes dinner, desserts, and open bar. To RSVP, participate as a sponsor, or place a submission in the Grateful for Julie Journal, go to or contact or 973-994-2290.
