Congressman Benjamin A. Gilman 5K Memorial Run:Walk Benjamin A. Gilman
Congressman Gilman was a member of the temple and a pillar in his hometown community of Middletown, NY. He was noted by the World Peace Prize Awarding Council for being a champion of Human Rights. This community-based event is meant to inspire unity and wellness through a sense of community, fitness, and advocacy for healthier lifestyles. Temple Sinai recognizes and honors Congressman Gilman’s past achievements and his desire for a future that is free of intolerance and discrimination.
