"For me, the Community Builders Bash is a chance for me to network with my professional cohorts, celebrate the life of a community leader and raise funds for Yachad to ensure that the great work they do can continue."
- Community Builders Bash Attendee
Every year, Yachad celebrates the accomplishments and dedication of a local leader who embodies the spirit of "community building." This celebration is a chance to honor the achievements of this leader and come together as a community of real estate and building professionals, nonprofit leaders, community activists and supporters of Yachad to raise funds for Yachad's programming.
The honoree is presented with the Rabbi Joseph P. Weinberg Community Builders Award, named for a devoted spiritual leader and one of the original Yachad founders.
