The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly held the third annual Leon Rubach Ride for the Living, a community Satellite Ride for the Living, on Sunday, July 10. The 75-minute stationary bike ride featured JCC group exercise instructors and an after-ride reception. The program remembered Leon Rubach, a Holocaust survivor, on what would have been his 90th birthday; commemorated the Holocaust; and celebrated the revival of Jewish life in Poland by supporting the JCC Krakow.
