Broadway Star to Headline Event for Longtime Federation Donors

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia will honor its long-time supporters at the 19th Circle of Partners Celebration on Monday, June 22.
The Circle of Partners was established in 1996 to recognize members of the community who have supported the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Community Fund or its predecessor campaigns for 25 years or more.
Today, Circle of Partners has grown to more than 5,000 members.
Ellen Sklar, senior endowment officer, states that “Jewish Federation is grateful to our 5,000 Circle of Partners members who have been supporting the Jewish Federation annually for more than a quarter of a century.
“They are the backbone of our community, and we are delighted to thank them for their loyalty and generosity with our Circle of Partners celebration.”
Guests at the event will enjoy musical entertainment from Tony nominee Jarrod Spector. An Abington native, he will perform hits from his new solo show, A Little Help From My Friends. He has previously starred in Broadway’s Jersey Boys and is currently starring in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, playing at the Sondheim Theater on Broadway. 
This year’s Circle of Partners Celebration is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park. A dessert reception will follow the program. 
The event is being made possible with the generous support of sponsors Blank Rome LLP; Federation Housing, Inc.; Silver Lining Home Health Care; and TD Bank, as well as many individuals who are attending the celebration.
