Patti and David Samuels have been members of Temple Aliyah since 1993. David is a past president of the synagogue, and Patti is currently serving as president of Women of Aliyah. The Samuels have three sons; Ethyn, Josh and Brandyn. Patti and David have devoted countless hours to Temple Aliyah, a place they call their second home, and we couldn't be happier to honor them both this evening.
