Art Sale in Support of March of the Living.

The International March of the Living is an annual educational program, bringing individuals from around the world to Poland and Israel to study the history of the Holocaust and to examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hatred.

As a part of its Mission, the Holocaust Memorial and Education Center at our JCC, awards scholarships to students so that they can travel and participate in the March.

This year, we are fortunate to receive a donation of art to sell, with ALL the proceeds from the sale being used to fund the March of the Living Scholarships.

To support the scholarship and purchase some beautiful art, please look at the gallery below and contact Ken at

These paintings are original oil on canvas works of Ann Yost Whitesell, who was born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1911. 

She worked as an artist for many years and was an art instructor at the Baum School of Art in Pennsylvania.  

Her paintings have been exhibited in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Boca Raton, Greenwich, and many areas in Pennsylvania. During her life, she received many awards and honorable mentions in juried shows and exhibitions such as the Art Alliance Foundation Award, top prizes at the Hess Brothers Art Exhibit in Philadelphia, and at the Woodmere Art Gallery in Philadelphia.

Her work continues to be exhibited and win awards. Many of Whitesell’s paintings are included in private collections throughout the United States and within museums in Bucks and Lehigh counties.

At various auctions, her art has sold for within a range of hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on the size of the work.

Our Holocaust Education Center at the SSBJCC is offering this art for sale at the reasonable price of $125 per piece.  

ALL PROCEEDS will go to the JCC’s Holocaust Education Center’s March of the Living Scholarship fund. The March of the Living is an extremely significant Holocaust education program for teens in their junior or senior year of high school.  The fund provides scholarships exclusively to teens in our Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren county area who want to participate in this program.
