STAMFORD – Steve and Lieba Lander will be honored at the 2017 Cantor’s Concert “Divas on the Bimah,” presented by Temple Beth El in Stamford, Thursday, June 8 at 7 p.m.
For nearly 50 years, the Landers, either individually or as a couple, have volunteered or worked for a host of local organizations, including: synagogues, such as Congregation Beth El in Norwalk, Agudath Sholom in Stamford and, for the past 10 years, Temple Beth El; social service agencies, such as Hadassah, the Human Services Council, the Family and Children’s Agency and the Friendship Circle; and educational institutions, such as the Gan Yeladim Early Childhood Center.
“It’s impossible to make a list of people who have dedicated themselves to Jewish and community organizations without putting Steve’s and Lieba’s names among the top,” said Mia Weinstein, president of Temple Beth El. “We could not have chosen a more deserving duo as our honorees this year.”
The concert will also feature four female cantors, including Beth El’s Cantor Magda Fishman, Cantor Jen Cohen of Temple Beth Sholom in Cherry Hill, New Jersey; Hazzan Alisa Pomerantz-Boro of Congregation Beth El in Vorhees, New Jersey; and Cantor Elizabeth Shammash of Tiferet Bet Israel in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania; in an evening of popular, Broadway, Israeli and Jewish music. A dessert reception will follow.
