In this issue we recap a very sensational night at the QJCC [Queens Jewish Community Council] dinner. Many seasoned politicians and statesmen attended this event in support of an organization which has helped resolve the social issues of so many Jews. But the night was not just about the QJCC, it was also in honor of those groups and organizations which the QJCC recognized and honored for their excellent work, service, and promise. Among them was the Alliance of Bukharian Americans (ABA) for being instrumental in the political growth and representation of the united Bukharian Jewish communities of North America. The ABA was honored with the QJCC Young Leadership Award. This award recognizes the ABA’s immense efforts in building the political infrastructure which now serves as a solid foundation for the ever-growing opportunities awaiting the Bukharian community’s attention. The ABA’s work shows promise because it is exactly the kind of effort which attracts more government programs, funding and attention. We at the BJL are so proud to see the continued success and growth of the ABA and we only hope to hear more great things about them. For more on this, see pages 28-29.
Just like our previous issue, the Summer continues to roll on with dozens of happy occasions. We once again have a jam-packed Mazal Tov section which can be found on pages 24-25.
Until next time…
