was arrested for the hit-and-run death of Emanuel Weintraub,
70, who was killed the night of Aug. 21 as he crossed a street in
Levittown, the Bucks County Courier Times reported.
Anthony M. Woods, 41, of Falls was charged Aug. 28 with
third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle and related offenses,
according to court records.
Falls Township police have said Weintraub, who used a cane,
was crossing New Falls Road in the crosswalk in heavy rain,
when a sedan went around a stopped car, hit him and drove off.
The retired Jewish postal worker had just left JoJo’s Ice Cream &
Water Ice and was apparently walking back to his nearby home.
Police said Woods thought he had hit a child with his 2007
Nissan Altima. The impact cracked his windshield and sent
Weintraub flying. Woods had the windshield repaired the day
after the crash, the complaint said.
Woods’ preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 11. Court records
show he was denied bail and is in the Bucks County prison.

The bakery — which is located near the hiding place of

Owner Roberto Barsoum removed the words Anne & Frank,
which was written in an antiquated font on the bakery’s window,
and said he will change the name.
“I was afraid the name would cause anger, that people would

he told a Dutch newspaper. But later he reckoned that “it’s a good
name, a sign of protest. I don’t think it’s an abuse personally of

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
mobilizes financial and volunteer resources to
address the communities’ most critical priorities
locally, in Israel and around the world.
Save the Date for The Main Event 2018:
Israel70 and Netflix’s ‘Fauda’
WERE YOU SWEPT away by your trip to Israel — or have
you always dreamed of visiting? Do you chant “Next Year in
Jerusalem” at the seder table — or are you a fan of the block-
buster Netflix show Fauda?
Wherever your appreciation for Israel stems from, you’ll
want to save the date for the Main Event, Jewish Federation
of Greater Philadelphia’s biggest night of the year, on
Thursday, Nov. 15 at 6:00 p.m. at the Kimmel Center.
In honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, this year’s Main
Event will be a celebration of our love for Israel and our
long history of supporting our Jewish homeland. The
night, which is being co-chaired by Beth and Brad Krouse
and Margie and Brian Wargon, will include a special trib-
ute to our 70 years of connecting Greater Philadelphia to
Israel through missions.
Our featured guest speaker, Avi Issacharoff, is an
Israeli journalist who covers Palestinian affairs, and
is a co-creator of Fauda (“chaos” in Arabic), an Israeli
political thriller series that won 11 Israeli TV Academy
Awards. Some attendees will have a chance to meet him
at one of two exclusive Main Event pre-receptions: one for
NextGen and Israel360 alumni and one for Joshua Society
As always, proceeds from the Main Event will support
the Jewish Community Fund of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Philadelphia. So get out your calendars and save
the date for this all in one party and homage to Israel!
For more information, contact mainevent@jewishphilly.
org or 215-832-0843.
High-visibility sponsorship opportunities are
available for this event. For more information, con-
