Start spreading the news

Standing O sends out a warm welcome — and lots of mazel — to Larry Spiewak, new board chairman at the Council of Jewish Organizations of Flatbush. The mensch was voted in at the group’s bimonthly meeting on June 20. Each and every member filled the internet with resounding “Yippees!” after the great news was dispatched via an e-blast.

“Could not have made a better choice,” kvelled one longtime member.

Organization heads are well pleased.

“I know that Larry’s leadership will make and immeasurable contribution to the council’s endeavors,” said executive director Rabbi Yechezkel Pikkus.

Chief financial officer Marty Kahan, and Rabbi Avohom Kahn, the new director of development, also wished the incoming chairman “Mazel tov.”

Welcome aboard

Standing O sends a shout-out to Jon Yanofsky, the new director of the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College. Jon has worked in performing arts for 20 years, proving his starry eyes are seasoned. The Standing O pal has an impressive resume: He worked for BRIC Arts, Irish Arts Center, Community Works, and the Stanford Jazz Workshop and Festival, among other big-name organizations.

Jon can’t wait to take the stage as director, and bring new crowd-pleasers to Brooklyn.

“I am thrilled to join the center at this exciting time in its long history,” he told Standing O. “I look forward to helping shape a redefined notion of the Center’s role on campus, building on its rich tradition and presenting world-class arts programming.”

Jon succeeds interim managing director Rick Berube.

Standing O can hardly wait for the standing room-only productions that are sure to be in store for theater-goers.

In a class of her own

A champagne toast to Christelle Patrice, who graduated Misericordia University in Texas with a bachelor’s degree in government, law, and national security — a great boon for us because Uncle Sam needs all the help he can get.

Christelle was presented the Alumni Outstanding Graduate and Act 101 Award at the college’s 87th graduation day. She will serve for a year with the Mercy Volunteer Corps at the Francis House Center in Sacramento, Calif., where she will manage the Almost Home Fund.

Christelle will work with families in need and act as a resource counselor, providing supervision for children while their parents receive counseling or are working in the job development center.

Standing O wishes the young go-getter good fortune in all her future endeavors.
