Meet Selma Jacowitz


Selma grew up in a Jewish neighborhood in Newark, NJ. When her family moved to Easton in 1951, it became important to be active in the much-smaller Jewish community. She became active in Hadassah and joined Bnai Abraham Synagogue, taking a variety of roles there once her three daughters were in school. In addition to serving as Sisterhood president, Selma chaired a variety of projects, served on the cemetery committee, and wrote a history of the synagogue. She was also past president of the Easton Home (the Easton Home for Aged Women), as well as JFS’s Benefits CheckUp program. She currently serves on the Bnai Abraham cemetery committee and volunteers with Meals on Wheels.
