The second annual "Harmonies for Hunger Relief" benefit concert, held on Sunday, June 27, at the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr, raised $3,000 for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia Mitzvah Food Project -- more than $400 over last year's event.

All monies will be used to purchase food for distribution by the five, volunteer-run food pantries, which provide supplemental food packages to some 2,000 people a year in the Jewish community who face food insecurity.

More than 100 supporters attended the concert, which was organized by Barrack Hebrew Academy alumnae Deena and Sara Goldstein.

The sisters and their fellow alumni wowed the audience with classic and modern Broadway, Disney, R&B, pop, jazz tunes and original compositions -- in an evening of music and mitzvot.

Corporate and institutional sponsors for the event were Max & David's kosher restaurant in Elkins Park, the Jewish Exponent, Gratz College and the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy.
