The First 100 Years

Celebrating 100 Years 1913-2013

A Century of Stories

In 1913 Joseph “Pop” Schonthal provided meeting rooms at 355 South Washington Avenue for local organizations to have a centralized space. He wanted to make sure Jewish people had a place to meet. And for the last 100 years, Jewish people—and people of all faiths—have had a place to meet, to celebrate holidays, to perform plays, to swim, to discuss books, to sing and dance, to play racquetball, to go to preschool, to enjoy a hot kosher lunch, to go to summer camp, to play mahj, and much, much more.
