Celebration Honors Jewish Federation Donors’ Longtime Support


On June 6, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia had the opportunity to say “thank you” to 600 of its most steadfast supporters at the 21st Circle of Partners celebration, held at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park. Circle of Partners recognizes community members who have been donating to a Jewish Federation campaign for 25 years or more. The event’s special guest was Erich Bergen, star of the hit CBS television program Madam Secretary, who entertained the crowd with an outstanding musical show.  

The afternoon also honored three very generous members of the Tikkun Olam Society: Fredlyn Brown, Eileen Chudnow and Joan Waldbaum. The Tikkun Olam Society welcomes community members who have included Jewish Federation gifts of any size in their estate plans.  

The Jewish Federation is especially grateful to Circle of Partners chairs Marcy and Dan Bacine for their leadership. If you have questions about Circle of Partners or the Tikkun Olam Society, please contact Ellen Sklar, senior endowment officer, at esklar@jewishphilly.org or 215-832-0574.
