Intergenerational Simchat Torah

Fifth graders from the Perelman Jewish Day School in Melrose Park, PA join with seniors from the Klein JCC in Northeast Philadelphia to mark the Jewish holiday of Simchas Torah which celebrates the conclusion of the annual cycle of Torah readings. Standing from left in the front row are, Selma Fleigelman, Zev Rosenberg, Bella Magerman, Helena Federman, Sara Weingram and Brynn Kantrowitz. Sharing the moment (back row from left) are Shelley Geltzer, Klein JCC adult services program director and Rabbi Chaim Galfand, of the Perelman Jewish Day School.

Now celebrating its 36th anniversary year, the non-profit Klein JCC provides social, educational and cultural programs, as well as vital social services for people living in Northeast Philadelphia and its surrounding communities.
