May 18, 2011 - PRLog -- The 35th Annual Meeting of the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center/Sanford L. Ziff Campus, 18900 NE 25th Avenue, North Miami Beach, FL will be held on Sunday, May 29, 2011, and will honor the outgoing president, recognize past and present leadership, present a special community award, and install a new Chairman of the Board.

This year’s meeting will take place in the Scheck Family Gymnasium, and will reflect a pivotal turning point for the MAR-JCC, as outgoing President, Jeffrey Scheck will be honored for his invaluable service, highlighting many successful expansion projects that took place under his leadership. “At this year's Michael-Ann Russell JCC Meeting, we have the pleasure of giving honor and recognition to Jeffrey Scheck for his 6 years of service as our President. Under Jeff's leadership, we opened a new Social Center/Cafe; renovated our locker rooms, gymnasium, aquatics and athletic field. We also opened the Berlin Bridge connecting our Sanford L. Ziff Campus with Temple Sinai, creating a dynamic North Dade Jewish Community Campus with our JCC in the Center, situated between the Hillel Community Day School and Temple Sinai. Our membership continues to grow and our Board leadership process has been enhanced. Jeff is a magnificent businessman with a keen sense of Jewish values as a guiding light to his leadership style. His wonderful wife, Adrienne, and his beautiful children and parents round out Jeff as a true leader of our JCC and Jewish community in Miami and around the world. Jeff's active involvement with our Greater Miami Jewish Federation is a role he takes very seriously and in a caring way to assist Jews in need here in Miami and around the world,” explained Gary Bomzer, MAR-JCC’s Executive Director.

We are also celebrating our 35th anniversary at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC connecting our past with the present and future. Our JCC is a role model of Jewish Community building and is the uniting force for families and individuals jest coming from all parts of Latin America, France, Former Soviet Union, United States, and elsewhere, Gary continued.

Spearheading many of the Center’s completed enhancement projects, Ariel Bentata, will subsequently be installed as the new Chairman of the Board for the MAR-JCC, and a special Community Award will be presented to Commissioner Sally Heyman, for her unrelenting devotion to the MAR-JCC and countless years of dedication and loyalty to her constituents and all of Miami-Dade County.
