Gail’s Garden

Inspired by the memory of our beloved Rebbetzin, Gail Polakoff, and as part of the Great Neck Synagogue’s Annual Dinner of 2000 honoring our Rabbi, Dale Polakoff, the Synagogue embarked on a project to enhance and beautify the front entrance to our building. Beauty, creativity and vision mirrored Gail’s character and imbued all that she did. The creation of a garden in her memory and the enjoyment of beauty in life remind us that Gail is truly “in the garden.” The remaining items available for dedication include:

  • Gail’s Garden Walk – $36,000
  • Gazebo – $25,000
  • Tree of Life – $25,000
  • Foundation Rocks – 21 available, $7,500 each
  • Lampposts – 8 available, $2,500 each
