Jewish Family Service of MetroWest will hold its annual Evening of Laughter on Tuesday, June 6th at Temple B’nai Abraham, 300 E. Northfield Road, Livingston New Jersey. The featured performer will be comedian Gary Gulman who was a finalist on the NBC reality-talent show Last Comic Standing and is a regular on late night comedy programs.  The performance will benefit Jewish Family Service of MetroWest’s programs and services.
