South Florida’s Shomrim Dinner

South-Florida-logo

The South Florida Shomrim Society was formed to meet the needs of Jewish law enforcement officers and support personnel in Miami-Dade County. The organization has grown from a mere handful of members in 1984 to nearly three hundred. And Shomrim supports more than thirty charities each year with donations and hands-on physical help.

The annual dinner award ceremony is held every year in November at the beginning of Veterans’ Day Weekend. This year’s event was held at the Turnberry Jewish Center in Aventura on November 8.

The evening began with a lovely cocktail hour and delicious refreshments on passing trays. A live band played as members and friends socialized and relaxed. The crowd rose for the pledge of allegiance and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and Hatikvah.

Rabbi Pinhas Weberman, spiritual leader of Shomrim, led the invocation. The rabbi and group president Dave Lewis presented Irving “Red” Heller with an award for his many years of service to the organization. Awards were also given to two civilians who had stepped in to help a downed officer in a dangerous situation. A gourmet dinner followed.
