There are dedicated individuals who give up much of their time, energy and resources to help klal Yisroel. Mr. Shlomo Werdiger is a sterling example of one of them. He has been a member of the Board of Trustees of the Agudah for three decades, and currently serves as its chairman. In that capacity, has done much to benefit the entire klal.
In a quiet and humble way, Mr. Werdiger makes a huge impact on the entire tzibbur. Through his connections on our behalf, he has brought countless benefits, financial and political, to the community. Such a role can sometimes take a toll, personally, and on one’s family, but people like Mr. Werdiger, who serve the Klal first, deserve our recognition and admiration. In this short clip, Mr. Werdiger speaks about what motivates and inspires him, and how he balances his personal life and Klal work. This serves as an example for us to follow.
In just two weeks, on Tuesday, May 29th, at the Hilton New York, the Agudah will be having its gala event, a Movement in Time, paying tribute to Mr. Werdiger’s service to the community among that of many others. This is our opportunity to show appreciation for everything they do, from securing the funding necessary to ensure that our children get essential education and services, that we have the ability to live as frum, Torah’dik Yidden, wherever we may be, that Klal Yisroel has the necessary resources to expand in the future… The list goes on and on.
