Monroe woman was synagogue’s first female president
As part of our "Salute to Seniors" feature, we at NJ 101.5 along with our Sponsorship Partner, American Senior Magazine, asked listeners to nominate a very special senior who is giving back to the New Jersey "community" at large — seniors who have gone above and beyond to serve their communities.
Sylvia Fleischer of Monroe is this week's nominee.
She's helped bring synagogue life to the town by being a founder of the Marlboro Jewish center, one of the largest conservative synagogues in Monmouth county, as well as its first female president.
A former teacher, her commitment to community service is apparent in all her efforts whether it's chairing an event, serving on various boards, or volunteering.
Still golfing, knitting and playing a mean game of mah-jongg or canasta, Sylvia is a senior superwoman who never stops! We salute you, Sylvia!
Tell us about your senior below. Submissions will be accepted through Nov. 21. Individual seniors will be selected by our staff and featured on-air and online once a week starting Sept. 4.
If your senior is chosen, he or she will be invited to New Jersey 101.5 for an upcoming commercial and invited to a luncheon at the the station.
