Annabel and Hal Sacks who celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary on August 12.

Hal and Annabel were married August 12, 1952 in a small ceremony in their rabbi’s study in the Bronx. They honeymooned at Lake George, N. Y.

Hal left that Fall for Officer Candidate School and then served in Korea. The Navy took them up and down the East Coast while Hal served two tours of duty in Vietnam until they settled in Norfolk in 1963. While raising daughter Judy and son Skip, Annabel became a professor at Old Dominion University. Annabel and Hal both became heavily involved in the Jewish community and have served virtually every Jewish organization in the region, as well as many national organizations. Working as a team, Hal and Annabel have left their mark on their adopted home town and provided family and friends with a great example of how much can be accomplished by a loving husband and wife team.

Their joy is shared by their two children, daughter-in-law Ellen, five grandchildren— Jonathan, Miche, Nate, Sam and Hannah —and one great grandchild—Eli.
