“It is time for the next generation of leaders to follow in the footsteps of our grandparents and parents, embrace Menorah Manor and continue its mission of providing the best care possible,” said Pegler.

He said his grandparents inspired him to support Menorah Manor.

“My grandparents, Marilyn and Irving Weissman, who were founders of Menorah Manor, were extraordinary and two of the most influential people in my life … It was difficult to see my grandmother age, and when she passed away last year, it made me realize how important Menorah Manor is to all of our Jewish families,” he said. “My generation needs to do whatever we can to make sure that Menorah Manor continues to thrive as a home for our grandparents and eventually our parents and ourselves.”

Pegler was born and raised in Tampa but in 2006 moved to his wife’s hometown of Vero Beach to practice law and in 2010 was elected to the Indian River County School Board. A year ago, he and his wife and two young sons moved back to Tampa when Pegler accepted a position as corporate counsel at Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Future activities of Next Generation will include raising aware- ness of Menorah Manor, assistance with special events and participation in intergenerational activities.

Complimentary specialty cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served at the party. RSVP by calling (727) 302-3710 or emailing There will be no solicitations.
