upon the occasion of her designation for special honor by the Queens
Botanical Garden on June 6, 2013

WHEREAS, Individuals who give of their time and energies and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and

consequently has been designated for special honor; and

al Rose Gala on Thursday, June 6, 2013; and
WHEREAS, The Queens Botanical Garden is an urban oasis where people,
plants and cultures are celebrated through inspiring gardens, innovative
educational programs and demonstrations of environmental stewardship;
and
WHEREAS, Selma Share was born in November of 1926; her interest in the
arts began at an early age, when her mother would take her to Radio City
Music Hall; and

a life together in Bayside, Queens, with their two beautiful children,

performing arts; she believed that an appreciation and understanding of
the arts could enrich and inspire one's life; and
WHEREAS, Through their foundations, Selma Share Kupferberg and her

performing arts center at Queens College was renamed the Selma and Max
Kupferberg Center for the Visual and Performing Arts; and
WHEREAS, Selma Share Kupferberg was involved in Temple Beth Shalom in
various capacities for over 35 years, and has also supported the work of
Queens Botanical Garden; and
