Musicians include Jeffrey Prezant, Jonathan Prezant, Liat Tretin, Diane Honig, Keren Makleff, Daphne Amir, and Sharon Amir, with musical director Victor Lessor.

Funds raised will support the Stephanie I. Prezant Maccabi Fund at the Kaplen JCC, which provides scholarships for Jewish teen athletes from 13 to 16, allowing them to participate in the Olympic-style national competition for sports, dance, the arts, and more.

The fund was established to honor Stephanie’s lifelong dedication to dance and athletics. She studied dance in the JCC School of Performing Arts, participated in JCC Holocaust Memorial commemorations, competed on the Team Palisades dance team at the Maccabi Games in 2003, when the JCC served as a host site, and in Maccabi games in Boston, Richmond, and Stamford.

A dessert reception follows the concert. Buy tickets online at www.jccotp.org. For information and underwriting opportunities, call Robyn Rosenfeld at (201) 408-1429 or email her at rrosenfeld@jccotp.org.
