Irwin Feldman Carol Lefkov tion's religious, programming and volunteer efforts. The Kalat B'reisheet hon- oree this year, called to the Torah for the first Aliyah from the Book of Genesis, is Carol Lefkov. This award is presented to recognize members for their personal and increasing commitment to Judaism and COS. Irwin Feldman was born and raised in New York City where he met and married his wife Rita more than 50 years ago. They have two sons, Kenneth and Steven. The Feldmans were founding members of the Manetto Hill Jewish Center in Plainview, N.Y., where Feldman also served as president. They moved to Maitland, Fla., 35 years ago, and immediately started looking for a conserva- tive synagogue with emphasis on finding a quality Jewish education for Steven, who was to be a bar mitzvah in less than two years. They decided that COS offered the type of Jewish environment for themselves and their children. Over the years they became deeply involved in all aspects of congregational life. Feldman chaired the Youth Committee, the 75thAnniver- sary Committee, the Library Committee, and more re- cently, the Move Committee. He also served on the board as a trustee and treasurer. Cur- rently, he serves as a member of the Adult Programming, Membership and Ma'asim Tovim committees, as well as assisting with the monthly bulletin mailings. He has collected and organized all of the congregation's historical records and is in the process of writing a history of COS. In addition to attending religious services on a regular basis, Feldman enjoys attending the adult education given by Rabbis Rubinger and Kay, and is extremely grateful to Rabbi Adler for introducing him to the Talmud, attend- ing his weekly Talmud class for more than 12 years. After retirement a dozen years ago, Feldman volunteered for many years at the Jewish Family Services Pearlman Food Pantry and at Kinneret, where he helped Don Kaplan manage the convenience store for the residents and helped the Kinneret residents apply for Medicaid and food stamps. He also started volunteering at the Holocaust Memorial Re- source and Education Center, where among his volunteer duties is running the library. In his spare time, Feldman is occupied with researching their family histories. He has served as vice-president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Central Florida. His other hobby is working with stained glass. Although he earned a B.S. in physics, Feldman's entire working career has been in the aerospace Industry, both as an engineer and in management. He has invented many products and holds several patents. Dur- ing his career, he helped design, COS on page 26A Fa00!l festk,c00l benefit,00 qsh Pavilion The Jewish Academy of Orlando performing at last year's Fall Festival and Walk.
