brated on Sunday, April 14, 2013, at the Merrick Jewish Centre, Merrick,
New York; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Torah  Fund  Breakfast of The Sisterhood of the Merrick

Junior  Hadassah/Young  Judea  and then on a year-long stay on a kibbutz
where she immersed herself in the  country  and  its  language;  it  was
during this period that she developed the passionate commitment to Isra-
el that has shaped her exemplary life; and
  WHEREAS,  After  marrying and living in Israel for three years, Cheryl

period of constructive involvement, Cheryl Uram has  stood  constant  in
dignity, good grace and humor; and

Noam, and the loving grandmother of  four  grandchildren,  Elia,  Talia,
Eliel and Avia, all of whom feel privileged to be a part of her life and
rejoice in her achievements; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the quality of life in their community, with unremitting commit-
ment, ceaseless devotion and spiritual resolve,  certainly  have  earned
the  recognition  and  applause of all the citizens of this great Empire
State; now, therefore, be it
