Baltimore Hebrew Congregation


April 11, 1999|By Sloane Brown

The political potshots came fast and furious -- courtesy of the comedy troupe Capitol Steps -- in an evening of musical political satire at the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. After the show, 500 ticket holders were invited to a reception to meet cast members, and to congratulate U.S. Rep. Ben Cardin and his wife, Myrna, and Constance and Ramon Getzov, recipients of the congregation's Tzedek and Keter Shem Tov awards. The Cardins were honored for their efforts in social justice and service to the community; the Getzovs for their participation in and generosity to the congregation.

The party included BHC president Barry I. Schloss; Rabbi Rex D. Perlmeter; Cantor Judith K. Rowland; event co-chairs Susan Perl, Carol Caplan, Ava Lendt; Nancy Pollinger, BHC resource development consultant; Lois Rosenfield, American Jewish Committee director; Allan Hirsh III, Ottenheimer Publishers president; Joel Simon, gift-planning director of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center; and Warren Davison, Littler Mendelson managing partner.

The event raised $50,000, which will go toward Torah-scroll restoration at BHC. --
