  Mr. ENGEL. Mr. Speaker, Honey and Sol Neier have been members of 
Anshe Sholom for almost 40 years, since they moved to New Rochelle as 
newlyweds. They knew Anshe Sholom was a special place from their first 
Yom Kippur when Rabbi Philip Weinberger performed a Brit Milah on the 
  Honey was born and raised in the Bronx. Her father was born in Poland 
and moved here as a young man. Her mother was born and raised in New 
York. Honey was born and raised in the Bronx where she attended public 
schools. She graduated from Hunter College and earned her Master's 
Degree from New York University. She began teaching at I.S. 131 in the 
Bronx and after a few years became a guidance counselor.
  Sol was born in Germany, the son of Holocaust survivors from Poland. 
He came to the United States with his parents at the age of 3, and he 
too grew up in the Bronx where he also attended public schools. He 
graduated from the Columbia University School of Pharmacy and opened 
the Ace Pharmacy of Riverdale. With Honey's help, he and operated this 
well-respected family business for many years.
  Honey and Sol are blessed with three children: Michelle, a doctor, 
and Joshua and Renee. They are extremely excited and proud for the 
family has been expanding. Michelle and her husband, Dr. Jonathan Schor 
are the parents of Juliette, 3, and Rebecca, 10 months. Renee was 
married last September to Jacob Reuben. Honey and Sol have been 
privileged to celebrate many family simchas in the shul including baby 
namings, a bar mitzvah and many others.
  Honey and Sol have been tireless volunteers at Anshe Sholom. Honey 
first volunteered with the Sisterhood. She then joined the Board of 
Trustees, where she serves as Vice President. She has performed many 
tasks at the shul from arranging Kiddushim, to serving on the rabbinic 
search committee. Sol has been by her side throughout, accompanying her 
to events, supporting her many endeavors and volunteering on numerous 
occasions. He often joins the morning Minyanaires before heading to 
work for the day.
  I am proud to join with Anshe Sholom in honoring Honey and Sol Neier 
for their many years of helping the shul. I, the congregation and Honey 
and Sol look forward to many more simchas and wonderful days for Honey 
and Sol with the Anshe Sholom family.
