Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Team Val was our prior name -- in memory of my soulmate and wife gone too soon. Val will be remembered for her determination, her artwork, her leadership at Metropolitan Museum and in the international Museum stores association. Her silversmithing skills are evident throughout West End Synagogue with the many religious objects that she created. But most of all I remember Val for her love, her humor and for coming into my life!

Jane has been added to commemorate Jane Weprin Menzi's short but brave battle with Pancreatic Cancer that ended just this past September. Importantly, we remember and honor the truly immense contributions Jane made as the matriarch and leader of West End Synagogue -- twice its President, and always calm, focused and caring supporter of the Community, and of all who knew her. She was also a special friend of Val’s (and then the both of us) and a very big part of our wedding.

 David is currently in treatment and has joined our team following his diagnosis of Pancreatic cancer almost 6 months ago. David also is a huge supporter of the West End Synagogue Community, having just completed 2 years as its most-recent President, and is on medical leave from a third-year term. He knew and admired Valerie, and is a friend to me.

By making a donation to Team Val/Jane/David, you are supporting research to diagnose and improve patient care and achieve better pancreatic cancer outcomes. We welcome any donation to help our team reach its fundraising goal. Please give whatever you feel you can afford. I am matching the next $500 in donations, and David will match the next $500 after that. The Weprin family will match the next $500


Thank you all in advance. (Even if you can't donate, please help by sharing this with others).
