Yasher Koach to Nessie Hollander who did a phenomenal job organizing the event – not a detail was missed! Kol Hakavod to the BBYO youth volunteers for doing an incredible job serving and cleaning up after the event, Aubrey Hollander and Barry Pechet who made excellent BBQ chefs, and to the JCC’s incredible maintenance team who worked so hard to make sure that everything was set up and taken down properly.
