Marcia Schechter, Congregation Sons of Israel’s nominee, believes in people. Older adults throughout the Lehigh Valley are linked to Judaism and Jewish values because of Marcia’s caring visits. She said, “I’m capable of learning from people who I wouldn’t have noticed 20 years ago. I learn so much from my people.” Her motto is to keep doors open. She honors her husband by keeping their commitment to living an orthodox life, her mother, by planting and maintaining the beautiful garden in front of Jewish Family Service, and her father by visiting people.
Mazel tov, Marcia, one of our 8ish Over 80ish honorees.
