Golman Family Celebrates Four 90th Birthdays
On Feb. 27, Julius “Red” and Frances Coleman hosted a first cousins’ celebratory luncheon at their exquisite Bonaventure residence honoring the four first cousins that have recently reached the milestone of their 90th or what is known as nonagenarian birthdays — Julius Coleman, Adlene Harrison, Charles Marcus and Maxine Nathanson.
In October 2011, Dallas’ Golman family held a weekend celebration with some 180 attendees honoring the 100th anniversary of their arrival from Russia to Dallas. The late Jake Golman was the first to arrive on Columbus Day, 1911, followed by his five brothers, two sisters and their parents. The first cousins, originally numbering 23, comprise the third Dallas family generation that has now reached six generations. The first cousins have lunch together every few weeks at various restaurants, and over the years the family has continued to have summer picnics and Chanukah dinners with all Golman family members. Reaching this mature age of 90 should give the younger family generations a longevity goal to aspire to achieve. We wish all the birthday celebrants a hearty Mazel Tov!
Temple Shalom Sisterhood to present a Magical Mystery Women of Valor Luncheon
It sounds wonderful! Dallasites can enjoy a special Beatles-themed afternoon of fashion, food and fun as Temple Shalom Sisterhood hosts their Annual Women of Valor (WOV) Luncheon Friday, April 11, at the Bent Tree Country Club, 5201 Westgrove Dr., Dallas.
Festivities will begin at 10:30 a.m. with a trunk show preview, followed by lunch, a fashion show by Terri Ives, a silent auction and a parody of Beatles Songs performed by Cantor Emeritus Don Alan Croll.
This year’s “Fab Four” honorees from the Traditions Judaica Shop are Clare Fishman, Dale Fox, Jill Kirschner and Lucille Klein. All were chosen for this award because of their outstanding involvement in Sisterhood, Temple Shalom and the community. Each Women of Valor portrays exceptional leadership skills and has a positive influence on the community. Elaine Wolff, 2013 Women of Valor, stated that “when I think of these four women and their involvement with Traditions Judaica Shop, many words come to mind…dedication, devotion, camaraderie and endless volunteering hours. They all understand the importance of having a shop in our synagogue that offers Judaica items to the congregation and to the city, to support our Sisterhood and all the great things it is able to do with the financial assistance.”
