Leg. Bosworth Honors Herricks HS Student at Yom HaShoah Celebration
On May 2, 2011, Leg. Judi Bosworth (D-Great Neck), in partnership with Leg. Howard Kopel (R- Lawrence) and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Long Island commemorated Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) at the Nassau County Legislature. The program included a presentation honoring Holocaust survivor Gloria Glantz and recognition of Nassau County Youth working to create a more civil society. The student from Herricks High School who was recognized was Alison Ederer. This was the first of what Leg. Bosworth hopes will be many occasions when the community can come together at the legislature for this meaningful and moving program.
