FRED COHEN, SETH Cohen, and Erica Cohen Rechtweg were honored by Jewish Family Service of MetroWest at its annual gala, An Evening of Laughter.
The event, which drew more than 275 community members, was held June 6 at Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael in Springfield and featured the comedy and magic of Ben Seidman. The gala also highlighted JFS Holocaust Services, which supports survivors and their families.
The Cohen family members have long devoted time and talent to JFS MetroWest. Their involvement began with the late Ellin Cohen, who participated in the creation of Café Europa, the socialization program for survivors. Family members have served on the JFS board, with Fred currently serving as treasurer. Seth and Erica have attended Café Europa events and participated with Next Generation @ JFS MetroWest.
