With great sadness we share the news that earlier today, Arthur Greenberg passed away at the age of 96. Art has been a constant and inspiring presence at the JCC as a member, father to H & PE Director Allan Greenberg and for the past 17 years as a dedicated employee. Art greeted and assisted thousands of members as the early morning “face of the JCC”. It is no stretch to say that Art was beloved by the morning workout crew and his own excercise regimen was an inspiration to all who wanted to know the secret to Art’s longevity.
Art served in the Navy during World War II in brave service to his country aboard the USS Tuscaloosa and participated in the D-Day invasion of Normandy which hastened the Allied victory over Nazi Germany. He raised his family of three boys in the New Haven area and in his later years became a fixture at the JCC.
Art made friends wherever he went but especially here at the JCC, so it is only fitting that Art’s service will take place here. Please join us on Monday, January 7th at 10:30 am in the Vine Family Auditorium.
On behalf of the Jewish Federation and JCC of Greater New Haven, we offer Art’s family and his extended JCC family the support and gratitude of our community. Art’s memory will be a blessing to all knew and loved him.
