A festive evening at COS to honor Cantor Robuck
Congregation Ohev Shalom celebrated its annual gala on Feb. 21. Over 300 people gathered to honor Cantor Allan S. Robuck for his 25 years of service to COS and the Orlando Jewish community.
Following a fun silent auction, attendees were treated to a concert by Cantor Jacob Mendelson. For his final number, Cantor Mendelson was joined by opera singer Cantor Fredda Mendelson, who is also his wife, and by the honoree himself.
After the performance, a delicious New York deli-style dinner was served by Edibles by Ethel's and tributes were paid to Cantor Robuck by Rabbi Aaron Rubinger, Rabbi David Kay and COS Religious School Director Amy Geboff.
Alan Ginsburg delighted the attendees as the master of ceremonies.
