Roberta Hirsch to receive Frankel award

Congregation B’nai Torah, 5700 Main St., Trumbull will present Roberta Hirsch with the Muriel J. Frankel Award on Friday, Nov. 14, at 7:30 p.m. services. This prestigious award honors her many years of dedication and service to the congregation. According to synagogue Co-President Linda Schulman, “Roberta has tirelessly given so much of herself for so many years. We are extremely happy to be able to recognize all of her efforts with this richly deserved award.”

Hirsch became involved with B’nai Torah immediately upon moving to Trumbull from New Jersey more than 46 years ago. She has been married to Seymour (Sy) Hirsch for 56 years and they have two daughters, Lauren and Michelle and four grandchildren.

When her children were young she served as a B’nai Torah Brownie troop leader. She has been extremely involved with many fundraising activities, having chaired a successful spaghetti dinner as well as an antique Flea Market. Hirsch chaired many tag sales and also worked on many others. She served as Ad Book Chair for the B’nai Torah 50th Anniversary Gala and has co-chaired the Goods and Services Auction. While serving as a Bingo cashier for the past thirty years, she has also volunteered for many other events including art auctions and the Festival of Tables.

The Frankel Award is presented to a member of the congregation in memory of the beloved wife, mother and grandmother Muriel, who was a tireless volunteer at B’nai Torah for many years.
