The 95th Anniversary of the Israel Cantor Family Society was held on the S.S. Cabaret on a spectacularly beautiful fall Sunday. The boat left Pier 81 for a brunch cruise that sailed down the Hudson River around the tip of Manhattan and up the East River to the United Nations providing us with amazing views of the three major bridges, the “Waterfalls” art installation, the Brooklyn waterfront, Governor’s Island, and, of course, close-ups of Ellis Island, where our ancestors landed.

The Society thanks Larry Becker, Phil Cantor, Ron Jordan, and Madeline Cantor for their hard work in putting the trip together and to making it a success. The 95th Anniversary will be difficult to top… the planners of the 100th have their hands full to top this incredible afternoon.
