Outstanding Gabbai
August 13, 2020 10:52 am

Devoted Gabbai Living in close proximity to the Shul i would occasionally pop in for a Mincha and Mariv Shabbos. From the first time visiting every Shabbos without fail i am received with a warm smile and always a good word from Gabbai Yossi Mahpor. Even remembering on his own when my birthday is making sure i get an aliya etc. From being a stranger i now feel like part of this wonderful family. If only all Shuls in the neighborhood would be so welcoming and have such a dedicated and welcoming Gabbai like Yossi. Keep up the great work… Read more »
