Kelli (Shor) and Alan Richman of Monroe Township, formerly of Morganville, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary during a recent weekend excursion with their family. They were married June 21, 1964, in the chapel at Hebrew Union College/Jewish Institute of Religion in Manhattan. The ceremony was conducted by Rabbi Eugene Borowitz, who was Mrs. Richman’s graduate school adviser.
They lived in Morganville for 43 years and were members of Marlboro Jewish Center before moving to the Encore community in Monroe Township two years ago, where they are members of Congregation Beit Shalom.
Mr. Richman was an editor and publisher of business publications for 45 years before becoming a freelance journalist in 2007. He is a contributing writer covering Monmouth County for New Jersey Jewish News and also produces articles for numerous other publications. Mrs. Richman was a Hebrew teacher at Temple Shaari Emeth in Manalapan Township and Marlboro Jewish Center. For most of her career she was a private bar and bat mitzva tutor.
The couple has two sons, Lincoln Richman of Metuchen and Matthew Richman and his wife Elisa Guarino of Ridgewood, and four grandsons, Luca, Azi, Logan, and Ezra.
