Avi & Tali Meir - Hakarat HaTov Award

Avi and Tali moved into West Hempstead almost 10 years ago and immediately made Anshei Shalom their home. Anshei was a friendly, diverse, welcoming shul and they knew they wanted to be a part of it. Soon after they moved in they became active members of the shul, becoming involved in many different aspects of the shul.  

Avi, an attorney, was the president of the Board of Anshei Shalom from 2017-2019. Before that he served on the Board as secretary. During his tenure on the Board he served as the board liaison to the shul dinner. He is an active member of CSS and he also helps to organize and arrange Shul Kiddushim. Avi has also been involved in other volunteer organizations in West Hempstead, including serving for several years as an EMT for the West Hempstead Fire Department as well as being on the Board of the Fire Company.

Tali is a public school teacher and Head Counselor at a day camp in Brooklyn. Tali is extensively involved in Anshei. She is currently Chair of the Chessed Committee, a position she has held for several years. She also served as chair of the dinner committee for the past 6 years, and has worked closely with the youth department to organize and run programs.

Avi and Tali have 4 children - Dani, Yonah, Etai, and Eliana. All of their children love coming to shul and participating in different ways. Dani enjoys working as a youth leader in groups, Yonah loves coming to shul and helping set up kiddushim, and Etai and Eliana enjoy going to groups and being with their friends. Anshei is a place their children know they can come to and feel like they are home.

Being a part of the West Hempstead community, and especially the Anshei Community, is something the Meirs take to heart. They understand and appreciate the time and effort that is put into making our shul the special place it is, and they thank everyone who does this and who will continue to do so.
