TAE Brotherhood Dinner
Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. in the TAE Social Hall.

Because of COVID, we haven’t had these dinners for the past two years, and we have a lot of catching up to do.  Therefore, we will be honoring three Bernie Entin Brothers of the Year:

  • Bob Grossmann of blessed memory, the 2020 Brother of the Year
  • Larry Levine, the 2021 Brother of the Year
  • Harold Gordon, the 2022 Brother of the Year

All members of TAE and friends are invited to join us to honor these three remarkable Brothers—you do not have to be a member of Brotherhood to attend. 

Cost: $36 per person. Catered by Stonefire

RSVP by September 5, to either Brotherhood President Bob Salfi/herb@rand.org, or Herb Shukiar/rsalfi@alumni.stevens-tech.edu.  Please make checks payable to TAE Brotherhood and drop the check off in the temple office (Brotherhood mailbox) or send a check to Bob Salfi:
