Edwin B. Silver


Edwin B. Silver was a fixture at the JCC, whether volunteering for the Jewish Foundation, Federation, or his beloved Senior Citizens Group. Born October 18, 1936, in Steelton, PA to Miriam and Dr. I. O. Silver, Edwin attended Devereux School and later worked for several Harrisburg area automobile dealers. He was beloved by all who knew him for his friendly manner and outgoing personality. Edwin was a devoted Beth El minyanairre and trusted volunteer at the Jewish Home and Residence. If you needed a helping hand, assistance with a project, or a ride to get you where you needed to go Edwin was the one to call. He was also the first recipient of the Jewish Foundation’s Volunteer Award.


A Gift from: Dr. Larry Silver and Susan Silver Cohen
