Frank Storch

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.

The Storch Family

without comments

Chesed Fund Limited founder Frank Storch has a rich family history in the Baltimore region. His grandfather, also called Frank Storch, was born in Vishnitzer but moved to Baltimore in 1892. It was there that he met his wife, Minnie Nebezahl, and had three sons; Arthurs, Leo and Bourough.

Frank’s first business in the community was highly successful, but the tie manufacturing company was destroyed in 1904 in the Baltimore fire. He went on to own a haberdashery, as well as a water-bottling company downtown.

After nearly two decades, the Storch family moved to Elgin Avenue in Forest Park. In 1923, Frank initiated a new business, this time a general store in Savage, Maryland. The venue sold clothes, feed, meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables and groceries.

The Storch family has maintained a reputation of generosity and chesed in the Baltimore community ever since.
