AMIT honors Five Towns sisters on May 15


Siblings Shelley Goldman of North Woodmere and Annie Tenzer of Cedarhurst will be the honorees at the AMIT chapter of the Sephardic Temple’s annual Mother-in-Israel event on Wednesday, May 15 at noon.

Born in Long Beach to Jack and Kate Azus, founding members of the Sephardic Congregation of long Beach, the sisters and their families are dedicated to AMIT, Israel and carrying on their Sephardic legacy.

AMIT is considered the No. 1 educational network in Israel by the Jewish state’s Education Ministry. The organization’s Jewish values-based education offers 35,000 children in Israel the chance to be successful regardless of gender, and religious and socioeconomic background. The Sephardic Temple chapter helps the children living in AMIT’s Frisch Beit Hayeled surrogate family residence in Jerusalem and is funding renovation of the 40-year-old building.
