Almost 200 friends and families of Jewish Service for the Developmentally Disabled joined in celebration on November 2. The community gathered to honor Matthew Jarmel and the Solomon family — Lori, Jerry, Hannah, Jacob, and Lily — for their extraordinary contributions to JSDD. The party included marking the first anniversary of JSDD’s state-of-the-art building, on Eisenhower Parkway in Livingston.
The evening’s big reveal was the announcement by JSDD board president Larry Rein that the Goodman Perwien Legacy Society — Sustaining JSDD’s Future has been established with a large endowment gift from Laurie Goodman and Mark Perwien. This couple’s outstanding support and belief in JSDD is an inspiration that will ensure the mission of JSDD will continue l’dor v’dor, from generation to generation, Mr. Rein said.
