2018-19 Norman Pollack Award Winners

Harry Woodell & Bob Judem

The Norman Pollock Award, named in honor of Congregation B’nai Torah’s first president, is presented to members of the temple who demonstrate leadership and volunteerism creating a significant positive impact for the congregation.  It’s not awarded every year since there’s a high bar its candidates must attain but this year we are pleased that two members distinguished themselves.  Although each contributed in different capacities, their combined efforts and enthusiasm set an excellent example of the type of commitment and support that creates substantial benefit for the temple and similarly for the recipients in the personal reward and feeling of accomplishment that this award recognizes but can’t come close to matching.

Harry Woodell of Marlborough has a long history of helping in a wide variety of ways.   He is almost always present at services serving as a ritual assistant, a participant, and a leader.  For many years he served as treasurer of the Brotherhood, and continues to be very involved with the group.  He can been seen in every Purimspiel, a humorous original play written and performed in celebration of Purim, and also behind the video camera at many congregation events.  His offer of help no matter the task is constant, sincere, and valuable.

Robert (Bob) Judem of Framingham went from 0 to 100 as soon as he retired.   The number 100 not only represents the pace of his work but also its magnitude.  Bob is the unseen presence behind developing and administering the B’nai Torah web site. This was no small undertaking when he started and because the web site demands constant updates to remain relevant, the pace hasn’t slackened by much.

Congregation B’nai Torah congratulates both Harry and Bob and thanks them for their extraordinary service.  They are excellent examples that volunteerism and dedication are alive and well in our community.
