JCC Metrowest will celebrate three generations of leadership as Marilyn and Lester Bornstein, Flo Peck and family, and Amelia and Cory Perlstein will be the distinguished honorees at the L’Dor V’dor (From Generation to Generation) Gala on Thursday, June 23, at 6:30 p.m. at Crystal Plaza, Livingston.

The Bornsteins of West Orange have been active in the local Jewish community for many years. Lester was a founder of the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, which has provided funding for many critical projects at JCC MetroWest and in the greater community. Marilyn is active in the JCC’s Lifelong Learning program and many other JCC activities.

The late Flo Peck served as executive assistant to four different JCC executive directors over 23 years. In her memory, the Peck family of Montville has made a leadership gift for the new JCC Camp Deeny Riback aquatics center.

Amelia and Cory Perlstein live in Livingston. Amelia, a graduate of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ’s Arthur Borinsky Young Leadership Development Program, serves on the executive committee of the JCC board of trustees and has guided many JCC committees. 

At the event, the concept of L’Dor V’Dor will be highlighted in the context of the JCC’s role in every stage of life, from early childhood through senior adulthood. 

Gala tickets cost $180. Dietary laws will be observed.
