The JCC of the Greater Five Towns recently renamed its kosher food pantry the Rina Shkolnik Kosher Food Pantry in honor of Rina Shkolnik, the JCC’s executive director. Ms. Shkolnik has devoted the last 11 years to serving those in need in the Five Towns and surrounding areas and to enhancing the quality of life for members and clients through various programs and services. She will be retiring at the end of June. In 2005, Ms. Shkolnik identified the need for a kosher food pantry in this area and has worked tirelessly to ensure that those who are not able to put food on their table can come and shop with dignity. The JCC’s board of directors decided to rename the pantry in her honor as a fitting legacy to mark the occasion of her retirement from the agency. v
