Martin and Wendy Mayer
Grandparents of the Year
Martin and Wendy Mayer are this year’s Grandparents of the Year. The Mayers are proud grandparents of Chanoch and Moshe Mayer, sons of Daniel & Tova Mayer. Marty and Wendy are well-known in the Passaic-Clifton community, having lived here for 33 years and over these years their shem tov has only increased. They are the personification of chesed. Quietly and without any fanfare, Marty and Wendy take care of the many food needs of individuals and organizations, both in and out of town.
In years past, they arranged for communal Shabbos HaGadol meals to help people during their harried pre-Pesach preparations, with any excess funds going to aniyei Eretz Yisroel. Marty has a deep hakaras hatov to his parents A”H, and in their memory the Mayers dedicated the Beis Medresh at their shul - Agudas Yisroel Bircas Yaakov of Passaic - as well as the Bikur Cholim room at Englewood Hospital. Wendy’s gracious warmth keeps the home running smoothly despite Martin’s erratic catering schedule at Menagerie Caterers and the Venetian. Marty and Wendy take every opportunity to attend YBH events and to cheer on their grandchildren.
