Joel's memory is a long lasting remembrance to of an outstanding public servant and long time member of Beth Tikvah Congregation. Vic can remember first meeting Joel and was immediately invited to participate in working at the hospital during Christmas holidays so that people who observe the holiday could have the time off.
