  Mr. ENGEL. Madam Speaker, I rise to honor two pillars of the 
Scarsdale community, Rise and Marc Robbins, who this year are being 
recognized as the Keter Shem Tov Honorees at this year's Young Israel 
of Scarsdale Anniversary Dinner.
  Rise and Marc have been members of the Young Israel of Scarsdale 
community, together, for nearly 30 years. Rise grew up in New Rochelle 
and moved to Scarsdale in 1973, when she joined the YIS. She graduated 
NYU and then attended Touro college where she graduated the Physician 
Assistant Program.
  Marc grew up in New Rochelle and graduated Columbia University. He is 
the president of IM Robbins P.C. an engineering company in New York 
  The two met at the Scarsdale volunteer Ambulance Corp, where they 
were both EMT volunteers for over 20 years. They have been active on 
committees in their children schools and the shul. The YIS plays a very 
important part of their lives. It is a warm and welcoming community and 
they feel very lucky to be a part of it.
  Together Rise and Marc have raised four children, Jennifer, married 
to Yakov, Daniel, Amy and Michael and have three grandchildren. 
Avishai, Shira and Moshe.
  Madam Speaker, Rise and Marc have together done tremendous work to 
strengthen the Scarsdale community, both inside and outside of the YIS. 
They are most deserving of this wonderful recognition, and I want to 
congratulate them on this special occasion.
