The Electrical Welfare Club—the longest-running club in Local #3, IBEW—hosted their 57th Annual Breakfast. As always, the dais included our union’s leadership, distinguished guests, and elected officials.
After the singing of the National Anthem of both the United States (Star Spangled Banner) and Israel (Hatikvah), Rabbi Daniel Graber led an invocation and hamotzi (blessing of the bread). Business Representative Michael Jordan was named the EWC Plaque Honoree, and EWC Financial Secretary Jordan Engel received the 2019 Service Award. Rebecca Marks and Timothy Eimer, both children of Local #3 members, were awarded scholarships for their attendance to Hofstra and Penn State, respectively.
The event was held on the one-year anniversary of the Tree of Life Synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh, so please keep their congregation and the victims in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to combat racism and anti-semitism.
