The Jewish Community Council of the Rockaway Peninsula held its annual free concert and fair on Tuesday, June 24, on Reads Lane in Far Rockaway. Performing was the one and only Uncle Moishy! The children were also treated to free rides and many giveaways. Warren Levi Martial Arts & Fitness was on hand to dazzle the children and teach them valuable techniques. Warren emphasized basic life skills such as manners, listening, and focusing their attention. Warren and his friendly instructors helped instill self-esteem in the young children, and the older children learned traditional karate skills.

The JCCRP would like to extend many thanks to the event sponsors: Brach’s Supermarket, Cross River Bank, Far Rockaway Kosher Pizza, The Jewish Home magazine, the Five Towns Jewish Times, Gourmet Glatt Emporium, Judaica Plus, PIP Printing, Russo’s Pharmacy, Seasons, Traditions Eatery, and Yali’s Wigs.

The JCCRP would like to thank City Councilman Donovan Richards for sponsoring this event, and also Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder for stopping by and for his continued support for our community. The JCCRP extends its appreciation to the NYPD’s 101st Precinct and the FDNY for all that they do to keep us safe on a daily basis and for participating. The children truly enjoyed their presence. A special thanks to Yoni Dembitzer, the community’s police liaison, and Pesach Osina from NYC Comptroller Scott M. Stringer’s office for helping to arrange the concert.

JCCRP would like to express its appreciation to the Parks Department for its support, the Rockaway Citizens Safety Patrol (RCSP) for their attendance and participation, and Grow NYC for their special participation.

Additionally, JCCRP realizes that the street closures may have created some minor problems for neighborhood residents, and appreciates their cooperation and apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Reminder: The JCCRP is still collecting donations for its Camp Scholarship Fund!

The JCCRP is a beneficiary agency of UJA-Federation of New York and an affiliate of Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty. v
