Gala Dinner In Honor of Rabbi Perlin

Leaders from the Reform movement and other dignitaries will join temple members in paying tribute to Rabbi Perlin at a gala dinner event being held at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly on May 12th from 6 to 11 p.m.  This festive evening will include wonderful food, dancing, entertainment (by The Beltway Rockers), and special tributes to Rabbi Perlin.  Because this is a self-supporting activity, tickets are $150 per person.

The event will be geared towards adults.  However, Rabbi Perlin wants to include teens B’nai Mitzvah age and older to attend if their parents see fit.  Note that the ticket price is the same for all attendees, regardless of age.  Teens will be seated with their parents.

Organizers of the event will work to honor all seating requests.  To submit a seating request, please write down who you’d like to be seated with on your RSVP card, or email [email protected].

A block of hotel rooms at special rates has been reserved for those who would like to spend the night at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles, 14750 Conference Center Drive, in Chantilly, Virginia 20151, (703) 818-0400.  To reserve your room, click here.

A special tribute book is being created and will be given to guests attending the gala.  For details about including your message or ad in the tribute book, please click here.

Many sponsorship opportunities are available for the gala, all of which will directly support the future of TBS through the Temple B’nai Shalom Rabbi Amy R. Perlin and Gary L. Perlin Endowment.  For more information about the Endowment, please click here.
