Chai Spirits Abound as Circle of Partners Celebrates 18th Year


Longtime supporters of the Federation's Jewish Community Fund gathered for a musical dessert reception at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park.


More than 700 steadfast supporters of the Jewish community of Greater Philadelphia enjoyed an afternoon of cabaret music and scrumptious desserts during a recent Circle of Partners reception at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park.

Circle of Partners, whose more than 5,000 members have supported Federation’s Jewish Community Fund or its predecessors for 25 years or more, celebrated its 18th year with a program of Jewish music performed by Eddie Bruce and the Tom Adams Trio, with special guest chanteuse Charlene Holloway.

Guests tapped their feet and sang along to a medley of tunes saluting the rich tradition of Jewish music from the Borscht Belt to Broadway. Lana and Bernard Dishler served as chairs for this tribute.
