FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Jewish Senior Services will honor three people who have made outstanding contributions to the community at the Women’s Auxiliary Fall Gala on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Italian Center in Stamford.
Anita and Harold Rosnick of Easton will be honored at the gala. They are the 2015 recipients of the Arthur and Gladys Lunin Humanitarian Award recognizing outstanding public and community service.
Sandy Young of Fairfield will receive the Louis Lotstein Award for Distinguished Service, which recognizes devoted long-term service to Jewish Senior Services.
Harold Rosnick is the senior partner in the law firm of Miller, Rosnick, D'Amico, August & Butler. He is a member of the Bridgeport Bar Association, Connecticut Bar Association, American Bar Association and AAJ. Actively involved in the Jewish Federation and the former Jewish Community Center for over 30 years, he twice chaired the Board of Directors. He is currently on the boards of Jewish Senior Services and the Jewish Community Foundation.
Anita Rosnick is a longtime member of the JCCS. She was a trustee and former co-president of Congregation B’nai Torah in Trumbull, a Lion of Judah, and a medical driver for Jewish Family Services. She is a Jewish Family Service honoree and recipient of Congregation B'nai Torah's Muriel Frankel Award.
The Rosnicks are active members of AIPAC and Congregation B’nai Torah, honored in 2011 with the Chai Award in recognition of a lifetime of synagogue and community service. Most recently, they have devoted considerable time and resources toward the construction of the Chick and Tillie Rosnick Fitness Center on the future Jewish Senior Services’ campus on Park Avenue in Fairfield.
The evening gala will include the awards presentation, dinner, an auction and entertainment by The 3 Painters.
