The Rosen JCC celebrated the 100th birthday of Ethel Siegel, a dedicated and active member of the Jewish community center. A ceremony honoring Ethel was held on Dec. 21 at the Rosen JCC.

Ethel is a senior member of the Chai Steppers social group that meets at the Rosen JCC. Originally born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1917, Ethel married Matthew Siegel in 1941 and is the mother of two children. The family resided for many years in Roslyn, N.Y. on Long Island before retiring to Florida.

Ethel is an accomplished artist who has specialized in painting and sculpture. In 2009, Ethel was honored at Orlando's City Hall with a showing of her clay work and a story in the Jewish Heritage newspaper.

"Ethel has been an integral part of our senior adult community and a vivacious participant of many of the programs we have," said Jennifer Jacobson, adult program coordinator at the Rosen JCC.
