Congregation Etz Chaim honored Maj. Jerry Quan during its annual gala, a night of comedy and celebration Sunday, May 6.
More than 210 people attended the gala, during which a state proclamation was presented to Quan, the retired Precinct 4 commander of the Cobb County police. Quan provided security on Shabbat and other occasions at Etz Chaim and was regularly seen at the other East Cobb congregations.
“For 17 years, Maj. Jerry Quan has had a special relationship with Congregation Etz Chaim. He has been part of our fabric,” Etz Chaim Executive Director Marty Gilbert said. “He has watched leadership change, new members join, and children grow and become members themselves. Through all these years he has been a warm and steady presence. We wish only good things as he enters this new phase of his life.”
Randy Figur, Janis Greenfield, Ilene Levin, Jennifer Pila and Ellen Spandorfer formed the gala committee.
