Liz and Harvey Cartine, this year’s honorees from Temple Covenant of Peace, balance their love and dedication toward the Lehigh Valley Jewish community with professional and secular accomplishments. Liz, an immigrant from England, wanted to learn about gardening, so she started a garden club. Harvey, an engineer who helped blast Apollo 11 to the moon, balances his life with music and painting. Their New Jersey marriage brought them to the Lehigh Valley where their mantra is, “You’ve got a friend in Pennsylvania.” The Cartines' love of community grew because their seeds of volunteerism were nurtured by involvement at Temple Covenant of Peace. While Liz was an active member of the National Council of Jewish Women and continues to knit for the needy, Harvey has served as President of TCP and is an active member of the Easton Leadership Council. Their focus has been on family, and that extends to their Jewish community, where Liz works undercover providing support to those in need. Volunteering is satisfying and enables them to form a network of friends and has been very rewarding. Liz and Harvey believe the Lehigh Valley Jewish community is spectacular because it encourages them to get to know people better.
