Take a Walk in the Park With JFRE


Join Paul R. Levy, the president and CEO of Phila­delphia’s Center City District, for a behind-the-scenes look at the progress on Dilworth Park at City Hall.

Join members of Jewish Federation Real Estate (JFRE) for a behind-the-scenes look at Dilworth Park at City Hall, the most transformed public-space project in Philadelphia’s history. Paul R. Levy, the president and CEO of Phila­delphia’s Center City District, will discuss the project and lead guests on a hard-hat tour.

Begun in 2011, the renovation of Dilworth Plaza is targeted for completion later this year. The project will include such features as a green civic space with a café with indoor and outdoor seating; an interactive fountain animated by public art; a gathering space for concerts, special events, public markets and winter ice-skating and a gateway to the region’s underground public transportation network.

The program, complimentary to JFRE members and those who contribute $1000 or more to either the Jewish Community Fund or the JFRE Fund for 2013 or 2014, begins with a continental breakfast to be served at Centre Square West, 1500 Market Street, 18th Floor, beginning at 7:30 a.m. Dietary laws will be observed. Non-members will be charged a $50 couvert. Discounted parking is available at Parkway’s Liberty Place garage, 20 South 16th Street, between Chestnut and Ludlow Streets.

JFRE leadership, which includes chair, Robert Zuritsky, prog­ram chairs, Steven H. Gartner and Gregg J. Wallace, and event chairs, Ben Appel and Dan Sablosky, anticipate a strong turnout for the event and encourage RSVPs by July 22nd. Register at jewishphilly.org/JFRE.
