Donna and Sid Levine have established a new fund at the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven in memory of their beloved fathers, Morris and Max, z’l. The Fund is intended to support the important work of the Jewish Historical Society, including maintaining and expanding its extensive archives and providing community educational programs.
“As a third generation New Havener, I appreciate the Society’s remarkable 50-year history of documenting Jewish stories and lives,” said Sid Levine. “My father, Morris Levine, and Donna’s father, Max Romanoff, were both World War Two Veterans who worked together at Chepovsky’s Food Market on Legion Ave. When Max was dating Estelle Gold he took Morris to meet her. Estelle became Donna’ mother. Both Morris and Max had a lot of affection for New Haven and its Jewish history.”
