Yasher Koach Celebration for Rabbi Jamie Gibson

Rabbi Gibson's 30th Anniversary Celebration Tribute Committee Co-Chairs
LOUISE & MICHAEL MALAKOFF    •    ILENE & JAMES ROSS    •    KAREN & TONY ROSS

More than 450 people gathered on Sunday, April 29 for a fun-filled evening starting with cocktails under the tent, dinner catered by Big Burrito and topped off with a dessert bar by Bella Christie. All were there to wish Senior Rabbi Jamie Gibson “Yasher Koach” for his 30 years of service at Temple Sinai. An entertaining program was filled with musical tributes, heart-felt good wishes and a song medley by Rabbi Gibson. The City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County declared April 29 “Rabbi Jamie Gibson Day” and presented him with proclamations. Together, Temple Sinai members, Jewish and interfaith leaders, civic leaders and members of the community fêted Rabbi Gibson for his feat of stellar leadership, support through all life cycles and inspirational spiritual guidance.
