More than 100 family, friends and business associates spent the afternoon on September 12th remembering the legacy of Community Philanthropist Lynn Kramer at the renaming and dedication ceremony of Village by the Shore at Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS). As a matriarch who selflessly volunteered at an array of organizations, including JFS, Lynn was committed to helping older adults in our community.

“JFS was fortunate to have someone so devoted to assisting people in our region. Lynn was tenacious about raising funds and supporting the agency’s events, especially the Golf Tournament. While Lynn’s quick wit, amazing style and bright smile are attributes many of us enjoyed, it was her caring nature and generous soul that made the most profound impact within our community,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer.

Deena (sister of Lynn Kramer) and Jim Dine attended The Lynn Kramer Village by the Shore renaming and dedication ceremony.

With Lynn’s passing last March, the Kramer family wanted to honor her loving memory by financially supporting a JFS program that she was passion about for years. With The Lynn Kramer Village by the Shore, her legacy and spirit will assure older adults in our community continue to get the programs and services needed.

“Lynn always said how much she respected JFS and their mission and service to the community. We participated every year by supporting programs with the family foundation grant and it is appropriate that the JFS Village by the Shore received the Lynn and Charles Kramer Family Fund Endowment to both honor and remember her name,” said Charles Kramer.

Lynn Kramer’s granddaughters – Ali and Jordan Kramer and Hannah and Molly Sloane – recite the motzi (blessing).

Village by the Shore assists older adults (50+) to enjoy life in their own homes through the concept of neighbors helping neighbors. To ensure that all older adults, regardless of income, can age in place with dignity, the Village provides a range of services needed to live healthy, productive and independent lives. Currently, nearly 200 members rely on JFS for meal and grocery delivery, transportation, social activities, care coordination, counseling and friendly check-ins.
