In the wake of our contentious village election, a small group of people have indicted Steve Markowitz for spurious reasons. These people are guilty of lashon hara (evil gossip) and wrong about Steve. His contributions to our community are vast. I’ve know him for over 30 years. His leadership of the Great Neck scholarship fund, Temple Israel and the HMTC have been exemplary. I don’t think anyone has added more to the good fortunes of our community than Steve.
