Hannah Storch:Community Leader

As Frank Storch said at an event to celebrate 30 years of Jews for Judaism in which tribute was paid to Mrs. Hannah Storch,

“We learned the importance of community service, volunteer work and charitable contributions. We learned the importance of listening to the needs of the community and of acting to fulfill those needs.”

Frank Storch expressed gratitude at having grown up under the tutelage of such special parents who, regardless of their busy schedules the children received, “love, time and attention from our very generous mother.”

Hannah and Leo were married for 18 years. During that time they were leaders in the Baltimore Jewish community, but Leo passed away prematurely in 1972, leaving Hannah a widow. But that did not stop her from continuing the Storch tradition of helping wherever help was needed. Mrs. Storch helped create Jews for Judaism, and the Women’s Institute of Torah. Hannah also helped to establish Etz Chaim: The Center for Jewish Living and Learning. She is also an active member of her synagogue, Beth Tfiloh Congregation, where she has belonged for over 60 years.

Jews for Judaism

without comments

Jews for Judaism was founded in 1983 by Rabbi Motty Berger and Mrs. Hannah Storch, mother of Frank Storch. Later this month, the organization will celebrate three decades of hard work with ‘Celebration 30’, paying tribute to its dedicated volunteers.

“We are a national organization comprised of five affiliated branch offices, with an expertise that no one else has,” said Ruth Guggenheim, the executive director. “We provide a community service that impacts all segments of the Jewish community. We are the experts that Rabbis, educators, Jewish youth groups, Jewish federation councils, and umbrella organizations come to. When confronted, these community professionals depend on us for our expertise and educational resources, so they can respond effectively in their own communities. There is no other organization of its kind.”
