On Saturday, July 28th, 2012 hundreds of people came together in Red Bank, New Jersey to support a great cause. During that night, The Community YMCA held a benefit concert featuring country music artist, Clint Black, with the opening act being local native Greg Trooper.
The concert titled “Goin’ Country For Kids Strong Kids benefited the Community YMCA Strong Kids Program. The program helps to strengthen the local community by helping to advance programming and services that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
This year’s event honored long-time Y advocate and community leader, Timothy J. Hogan who is the regional president of Meridian Health’s Riverview Medical Center and Bayshore Community Hospital.
One big benefactor to the event was humanitarian and philantrophist, Howard Schoor and his Schoor Family Foundation. Mr. Schoor was extremely excited to participate in this charitable event and knows his donations will benefit a great cause.

Since being founded in 1978, Temple Beth Shalom in Manalapan, New Jersey has grown from a congregation of just a few individuals to over 500 families.
The mission of this Temple is to teach its members the experience, power, relevance and joy of the Jewish tradition. They are able to fulfill this mission by constantly performing acts of kindness and continually studying the Jewish tradition on an ongoing basis. The congregation prides itself in creating a caring and vibrant center for Jewish life.
One very important goal of Temple Beth Shalom is creating a Mercaz, also known as center for Jewish living. By achieving this goal, people will feel inspired to pray, study and socialize together and then successfully pass on these traditions to future generations.
One person who has help make this congregation successful and fulfilling for its members is philanthropist and humanitarian, Howard Schoor.
Mr. Schoor has received much recognition from the congregation for his generous contributions towards the Temple’s renovations and expansion of its educational and recreational facilities, which is now named after his father, Samuel Schoor. Howard also provided a matching grant to upgrade the lobby-reception area of the synagogue which is named after his mother, Sadie Schoor.
