Lizzie Kirshenbaum/Herald
The synagogue’s annual Journal Dinner was organized by Bonnie Stein.

Five Towns residents Karen and Dr. Myron Boxer and Pepi and Marcel Buchsbaum were recognized for their commitment and service to Congregation Sons of Israel in Woodmere at the shul’s annual Journal Dinner on June 12.

Woodmere residents, the Boxers joined the congregation 40 years ago. Karen became a member of the synagogue’s Education Committee, then the Woodmere Sisterhood. She has served three separate terms as co-president of that group, on several committees and is a longtime member of the Board of Trustees.

The children of Holocaust survivors who were born in displaced person camps in Germany, the Buchsbaums moved to Hewlett in 1979. They dedicated themselves to service as Marcel has been on the Board of Trustees for more than 10, chairs the Ritual Committee, is past chairman of the Education Committee and co-chairs the Gemilut Chasadim Committee with Karen Boxer that coordinates the shul’s biennial blood drives.
