KATZ
SELMA KATZ (nee GREEN), 97, of Bala Cynwyd, PA, formerly of Melrose Park, PA and
Flushing, NY died October 11, 2012 at her home. She was the wife of the late LAWRENCE
(LARRY) KATZ. Born and raised in New York City, she graduated from New York University
with a BS in Education (1936). As a young married woman, Sabbath dinners at her father's
home in Manhattan exposed her to Zionism through introductions to David Ben Gurion,
Chaim Weizman and Golda Meir. This was the great impetus that directed her lifelong
involvement in charitable endeavors. When Golda Meir pursued the development and sale
of State of Israel Bonds in 1951, SELMA spearheaded the sales in Queens, NY.
Upon moving to Melrose Park, PA in 1955, her Zionist activities continued with her very
active involvement with Hadassah, Jewish National Fund, American Friends of Technion and
Israel Bonds. She and her husband hosted Eleanor Roosevelt, in 1960, at an Israel Bonds
event in their home. In 1966, she started the Israel Bonds Women's Division Home and Art
Tour, that required the purchase of Israel Bonds to attend. She chaired this hugely successful event for 40 years, visiting prominent private art collections in New York, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and Washington, DC.
Her interest in fine arts led to her involvement with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The
Friends of Artist Equity and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts which was a recipient of
a piece of sculpture from her collection.
Well known in the community for her dedication and leadership, SELMA served on the
Board of Women's Division of Israel Bonds, its' Prime Minister's Club for 25 years, and
was a charter member of the Golda Meir Club.
She served as President of the Mann Music Center Guild for 25 years and chaired the opening party at Memorial Hall in 1976 when the Mann moved to its' new location. She also
served on the boards of Philadelphia Psychiatric Center, now Belmont Center for Comprehensive Treatment, and co-chaired with her husband the Anniversary Ball honoring Henry
Kissinger; they also co-chaired, in 1964, Albert Einstein Hospital's Auxiliary Harvest Ball;
they co-chaired the Gala opening of the Weiss Institute of Philadelphia Geriatric Center,
now the Abramson Center for Jewish Life. Additional board positions were on the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences, now Philadelphia University; The Elder Craftsmen and
Women's Division of American Cancer Society.
SELMA loved gardening and was an exhibiting member of the Old York Road Garden Club
at the Philadelphia Flower Show and was a winner of Blue Ribbons for her Jade plants. Her
other loves were playing gin rummy and traveling throughout the world – hot air ballooning
in France, white water glacier rafting in Alaska and many other wonderful experiences.
Most of all, SELMA was known as a devoted wife, dear mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She was a hostess extraordinaire as evidenced by her holiday hospitality
– Rosh Hashanah lunches, Break-Fast evening with fabulous smoked fish brought in from
Murray's Sturgeon House in New York, Thanksgiving, Chanukah and the gift boxes of
Stutz's chocolate marshmallows, her Chinese New Year parties held at Susanna Foo and
Passover Seders with her homemade (from scratch) gefilte fish and light as a feather
matzah balls. Everyone was welcome in her home in Latham Park and it was always open to
charitable organizations.
She was honored by Hadassah, Jewish National Fund, Israel Bonds, American Cancer
Society and Technion Society.
She was a member of Beth Sholom Synagogue, Elkins Park and Har Zion Temple, Penn

The years have gone by so quickly,
But time has not dimmed
the memory of your smile,
We are sad for all the wonderful joys
you have missed,
But we are happy in our belief
that you are at peace,
We are hopeful that you know
that you are still apart of
every dream and special time,
For as long as we live,
so too, do you live,
Forever in our hearts and minds.
