A tribute to Matt Cohen
On March 21, Congregation Sinai of Clermont had a special Shabbat service to honor Matthew Cohen, who, along with his late wife Bea, have been Congregation Sinai’s largest benefactors. Cohen has generously contributed the synagogue’s two Torahs, the Ner Talmud and monies to help the congregation refresh their current sanctuary, as well as his donation of many prayer books. The Beatrice Cohen Memorial Fund was set up to help with Congregation Sinai’s children’s education. Cohen and his wife Claire are moving back to Philadelphia and the members of the synagogue will miss his jolly presence, his sense of humor and how good he has made everyone feel.
