Elaine Katz Receives Congressional Proclamation

Washington, D.C. – On Sunday, Congressman Eliot Engel presented long-time Riverdale resident Elaine Katz with a Congressional Record for her service to the Riverdale Temple.

The Congressional Record, in part, reads: “The Riverdale community has enjoyed the gift of Elaine’s service since she moved there 15 years ago. Her commitment to the Riverdale Temple is particularly noteworthy. Elaine strives to place the needs of others before her own, and often shies away from the spotlight. Instead, she chooses to be a guiding light for others. Her wisdom and foresight have enriched the Riverdale Temple in numerous ways.”

Katz is a member of the Board of Trustees and Assistant Financial Secretary. She’s organized many outreach community programs for the Riverdale Temple, and serves as President of the Women of Reform Judaism. She also serves as the Vice President of the Lower Eastside Service Center in Manhattan, a non-profit organization that assists New Yorkers with mental health and chemical dependency issues.

Katz was honored by the Riverdale Temple on Sunday at their Student Sponsorship Breakfast.
