I have been honored to have been nominated for the Ten Outstanding Young Omahans (TOYO) award by the Omaha Jaycees!
This is a great honor, especially when I see the people who have received it in the past and who are receiving it this year.
I was nominated by a good friend of mine here in Omaha who was a recipient of the award last year.
His name is Dan Gilbert. He will be appearing this week on a special episode of Good Shabbos Nebraska to tell us why this is such a special award.
This is going to be an unbelievable episode!
We have singer songwriter Karen Sokoloff Javitch who is going to talk about some of her children's hits. Then we have Etan G, the Jewish Rapper, and our headliner - the living legend - the one and only - Lenny Solomon!!!!
This is going to be an incredible shabbos. It all begins Friday Night with a musical kabbalat shabbat and then a special shabbos dinner featuring hits from Lenny's latest album - Shabbos in Liverpool.
After Shabbos Lenny is going to do a special unplugged Havdallah concert. Opened to the community.
And of course, Shabbos at 10am GOOD SHABBOS NEBRASKA!
It all happens right here at Beth Israel Synagogue - Where every Shabbos is a shabbaton!
