The Sidney & Pauline Friedman Jewish Community Center:
Connecting the Community: Affirming our Future
Today’s Jewish community, in and around Greater Wilkes-Barre, faces a unique opportunity to secure its future and to regenerate a new sense of community and purpose. Our community is smaller than it once was, but every bit as vibrant and engaged. It is time for a new central meeting place to encourage educational, recreational, social, and cultural activities under one roof. We will create a Center that reflects the community we have become.
After years of temporary patches and hard use, our current facilities are worn out and fail to meet modern standards and needs. We face a crisis as critical as in the past; we have always rebounded, rebuilt, and reinvested. We can and must rebuild and reinvest now.
We are challenged to create a physical presence that serves evolving program, athletic, cultural, and social needs. With a real vision, a solution exists!
