Samuel Sacks Achievement Award


Samuel Sacks, a dedicated and devoted member of the congregation and of the Men’s Club, established a fund 36 years ago whereby the Temple receives a yearly contribution. Mr. Sacks also wished to recognize members of the congregation for their service and support of the Temple.
