The evening was perfect. The company, gracious. The food, delicious. That was the setting last night for the 2017 Shul Boys annual Holiday Party hosted by Abe and Barbara Miller at their home in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
The party was enjoyed by about 90 Shul Boy Motorcycle Riding Club members and their guests. After a cocktail hour (or 2) where guests enjoyed hot appetizers and generous amounts of wonderfully fresh sushi supplied by Sasa Japanese Restaurant, president of the Shul Boys, Ian Abrams, provided guests with a description of the most aggressive fundraising effort ever taken on by the Shul Boys. The hosting of the 2018 Ride to Remember, a holocaust remembrance event held each year by the JMA (Jewish Motorcyclist Alliance) for the benefit of a holocaust charity. For 2018, the selected charity is the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
In June 2018, the event will be held in Cleveland and hosted by the Shul Boys. Committee chairs, Rose Viny, Bob Cohen David Rosenblatt, and Sue Frankel updated members the group as to the progress of the event. The party goers also learned about a special project of USC Shoah Foundation’s, ”New Dimensions in Testimony”, presented by David Schaffer, president of the Maltz Museum and host Abe Miller who made an impassioned speech asking for participation by club members. Ian Abrams then announced that even before the fundraising event starts the Shul Boys had raised just over $24,000 for the benefit of the Maltz Museum.
All in all, the evening was a huge success of camaraderie and solidarity for the Shul Boys Motorcycle Riding Club.
