Brandi & Jason Grunfeld - Keter Shem Tov Award


Brandi and Jason Grunfeld have lived in West Hempstead for the past 13 years.  

Jason has served 11 of those years on Anshei’s Executive Board, the last 8 of them as treasurer.  During his tenure as treasurer, Jason’s innovations included ACH collections for donations, a new shul bookkeeping system, and shul office telephones that actually ring in the shul office, not just in the elevator.  Jason has served on more committees at Anshei than he can remember, which prompted then shul president Binyamin Rosenstock to tell him that he should probably serve on fewer committees.  Among the committees that he remembers serving on are the Youth Committee, Building Committee and Caffeine Committee.  Jason also turned the Main Minyan announcements into a weekly fundraiser, garnering sponsorships for inserting hidden words such as calzone and Deuteronomy.  Jason has also served the Shul in a legal capacity, representing the Shul on its purchase of the land across the street, and later, the shul’s refinance of its mortgage.

Prior to moving to West Hempstead, Jason served as the Assistant Youth Director at the Young Israel of Jamaica Estates and as Gabbai and a member of the Steering Committee for the Young Married Minyan at the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills.

Brandi, no stranger to community service herself, has served Anshei on the committees for Rabbi Soniker’s Installation and the Hachnassat Sefer Torah dedication in honor of Rabbi Pearl. She also volunteers on one of the Chessed Committee teams, preparing meals for those in need. Brandi even filled in as Anshei’s office manager while the regular office manager was on maternity leave.

Brandi also recently “retired” after spending 10 years on the HANC PTA, including seven years as Vice President and coordinator of HANC PTA’s lunch program for HANC’s two West Hempstead campuses.  Brandi also volunteers as a Block Captain for the Morton Civic Association, which serves the northwest corner of West Hempstead and Franklin Square.

In their spare time, Jason is an Underwriting Counsel at Fidelity National Title Insurance Company in Westbury, New York and maintains his own law practice and tax practice with offices in West Hempstead and Brooklyn.  Brandi is a Recordings Clerk, also at Fidelity National Title Insurance Company in Westbury, New York.
