David Dormont, Max Halperin and KleinLife’s Home Delivered Meals Program.

The 37th World Zionist Congress elected Montgomery McCracken partner David Dormont to its Zionist General Council. Dormont served as a delegate of Partners for Progressive Israel to the WZC’s recent meetings in Jerusalem. Dormont graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1984 with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a master’s degree in mathematics education. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1992, where he served as associate editor of the Minnesota Law Review and was elected to the Order of the Coif. Dormont resides with his family in Bala Cynwyd and has been active in Zionist and Jewish affairs for more than 40 years.

Max Halperin, 16, a junior at Upper Dublin High School and an active participant at Temple Sinai, just returned from the National Association for Music Education All-Nationals Honor Choir. He was one of just 32 students selected from all of Pennsylvania. The group of 350 students performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. Halperin is a member of the UDHS band, performing on the bass drum and gong.

KleinLife’s Home Delivered Meals Program received a $5,000 grant from Toyo Tires and Meals on Wheels in America, which also included a new set of tires — including installation — to assure reliable and safe delivery of meals. KleinLife in coordination with RSVP Philadelphia provides some 92,000 Home Delivered Meals annually to area seniors in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties who cannot shop or cook for themselves. The program also features Cook For A Friend, which relies on volunteer groups and organizations who cook meals which are then packaged and frozen for delivery by a corps of volunteer drivers.
