  Mr. ENGEL. Madam Speaker, I rise to honor two pillars of the 
Scarsdale community, Miriam and Ari Loren, who this year are being 
honored by Young Israel of Scarsdale at their 47th Annual Dinner.
  Miriam was born in Bratislava, Slovakia and came to the U.S. in 1982. 
Her family moved to Silver Spring, MD where she graduated from the 
Hebrew Academy of Greater Washington, now known as Melvin J Berman 
Hebrew Academy. Miriam is a graduate of Barnard College and Columbia 
University's Teachers College, after which she worked for many years in 
early childhood special education, running classrooms for 
developmentally delayed children and their parents. Miriam has also 
worked as an evaluator, diagnosing, testing and evaluating children for 
special services.
  For the past few years, Miriam has worked for Camp Yavneh as their 
Inclusion Coordinator. This program has grown from two campers 
participating in only the second month of camp to almost thirty campers 
across both months.
  Miriam has volunteered extensively for her children's schools, 
including serving as their Parent Association President for six years. 
Miriam was also on the Westchester Jewish Council inclusion initiative 
for local synagogues. Miriam is currently on a mental health task force 
for the Ruderman Foundation.
  Ari was born and raised here in New Rochelle. After graduating from 
Westchester Hebrew High School, Ari earned his BS from Yeshiva 
University and MBA from Bar-Ilan University.
  Professionally, Ari operates a family business and manages some real 
estate. Outside of work, Ari has spent the last 8 years heavily 
involved in the local hockey scene. He served as President of New 
Rochelle Lightning Hockey from 2013 to 2018, growing the program from 
52 players in 2013 to well over 200 kids today. Ari loves coaching 
hockey, and currently helps coach in the New Rochelle Lightning 
program, as well as at the Frisch School and as a head coach at 
Westchester Day School. Miriam and Ari have 5 fantastic boys, aged 6 to 
16. The Lorens love raising their children in the same warm and loving 
community in which Ari was raised. Miriam and Ari

credit both of their parents in teaching them the importance of 
community and giving back.
  Madam Speaker, Miriam and Ari are most deserving of the Community 
Service Award from YIS. Congratulations to them on this honor.
