8 over 80 awards celebration draws big crowd


The 2017 class of 8 0ver 80 (L-R) Standing: Maril Jacobs, Jerry Schine, Arthur Viders, Harold Perlman, Stanley Bush: Sitting: Shirley Kanas, Elaine Viders, Barbara Moudy The 2017 class of 8 0ver 80 (L-R) Standing: Maril Jacobs, Jerry Schine, Arthur Viders, Harold Perlman, Stanley Bush: Sitting: Shirley Kanas, Elaine Viders, Barbara Moudy Weinberg Village hosted its 6th Annual Stephen Weinberg 8 over 80 Awards recently at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC to celebrate the achievements of eight honorees over age 80 who have dedicated their time, talent, and lives to the Jewish community.

Those receiving awards were Stanley Bush, Maril Jacobs, Shirley Kanas, Barbara Moudy, Harold Perlman, Jerry Schine, Elaine Viders, and Arthur Viders. Recognizing their lives and achievements are a huge part of how future generations see what they can do to improve our society, Weinberg Village officials said.

There was a large turnout for the event, including clergy from area synagogues. “This was my third year attending this fantastic celebration. Each honoree’s life is an inspiration to the community. I also could not get that “8 over 80 theme song” out of my head for days, it was so catchy,” said Rabbi Nathan Farb of Congregation Schaarai Zedek.


Honorees Barbra Moudy and Harold Perlman participate in the afternoon events. Honorees Barbra Moudy and Harold Perlman participate in the afternoon events. Honoree Elaine Viders summed up the event this way: “It was handled smoothly and everyone was so professional. The food presentation was wonderful and I loved the cakes made for each honoree. I was also appreciative of the commemorative video of all the honorees. It was very special.”

Proceeds from 8 over 80 Awards celebration, raised through ticket sales and the Mazel Tov Recognition publication, will be directed to the Weinberg Village Facility Enhancement Fund and the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Endowment Fund. These funds help to enhance the Weinberg Village facility and provide much needed subsidies and supportive services to our seniors.
