Honoring Jose Serna
Mr. Serna is the Conservative congregation’s longest tenured staff member. Since 1989, he has set up for countless numbers of celebrations, High Holiday services and just about everything else that happens at the synagogue. But at Saturday’s Ways and Means Dinner, more 200 people came to the shul. This time, they were there to honor Mr. Serna. He had 11 family members on hand, and at least five flew in from his native Colombia just to be with him at the dinner.
