About the project
The Dr. Hymie Moross Community Center provides educational, social and recreational activities for residents of the Old City’s Jewish Quarter. The center, which is located below the Friedland Public Library, includes meeting rooms, a fitness center, and the Jack Iny Memorial Court, a paved courtyard at the center’s entrance. The Foundation established the center in 1980 and has supported many projects since, including renovations, general improvements and the installation of new furnishings in 2002. The Foundation also has supported many activities at the center over the years, including educational and cultural programs for preschoolers, art and music lessons for children and lectures, films and courses for adults. Special activities include those at the center’s Larry & Lenore Zusman Visitors & Education Center for People with Special Needs and projects that focus on the Old City’s historic resources, including walking tours and joint projects with other Jewish Quarter institutions such as the Isaac Kaplan Old Yishuv Court Museum.
