The Apple Bank Forest Hills and Kew Gardens branches held their joint AppleConnect ’19 event on Wednesday evening, October 30, at the 102-35 Queens Boulevard location in Forest Hills. Key members of the community met and mingled with Apple bankers and customers, entrepreneurs, and business owners in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. The glatt kosher hors d’oeuvres from the bank’s neighbor, Da Mikelle Restaurant, were certainly appreciated by attendees. Queens Jewish Link co-publisher Yaakov Serle won the Apple iPad drawing.

Hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the 25th (Silver) Anniversary of the Rachel’s Children Reclamation Foundation (RCRF) on Motza’ei Shabbos, November 9, at the Manhattan Beach Jewish Center, to commemorate the yahrzeit of Rachel Imeinu (11 MarCheshvan), making it a special night to remember. The overflow crowd of nearly 300 people joined the Master of Ceremonies, activist Dr. Paul Brody, and his lovely wife Drora, as the evening got underway.

Some Queens askonim and lay leaders met with Councilman Donovan Richards (Queens Boro President candidate) last week to discuss pertinent issues affecting the Queens Jewish community. As one of the attendees stated “Donovan answered our questions and had a positive vision of what direction he would like for Queens to go. It was a pleasure to speak with him.”
