On Thursday, June 30, Charles Kramer and his children, Michele Kramer Sloane and Mark Kramer, will host the Lynn P. Kramer Concert at Shirat Hayam. The concert will feature the multi-talented Divas on the Bima starring Cantor Jen Cohen, Cantor Alisa Pomerantz Boro, Cantor Elizabeth Shammash, and Cantor Magda Fishman, accompanied by Musical Director Scott Stein and trio.

The concert, orchestrated by Joe Handler and Charles Kramer, will honor Charless late wife through music and joy.

Michele Kramer Sloanes great-grandparents Ben and Molly were members of (then) Beth Judah. She was raised at the synagogue, she and her brother had their bnai mitzvahs there, and Kramer Sloane was married at Beth Judah, too. The synagogue was always a place of connection for Lynn Kramer. With her husband serving as a past president of the synagogue, she was always present for services and events, remaining committed and connected.

Lynn Kramer helped set an example of what was right and wrong for her children. Both she and Charles had many leadership roles, ran a business (Kramer Beverage, which continues to thrive today), and were busy attending meetings for local groups. We were always taught to be charitable, be responsible and have a strong work ethic. While my brother went into the family business. Ive spent my career in the Jewish nonprofit world. I think with both of our professional roles, my moms advice has helped us exemplify these attributes, said Kramer Sloane.

Throughout her life, Lynn Kramer was an avid supporter of the local community. She was born and raised locally, attending Atlantic City High School. My mom was someone who was fortunate, but never forgot where she came from. She was never a showy person, but someone of substance, said Kramer Sloane. Lynn Kramer was seen by her daughter as a very bright and strong woman who valued putting others first.

Lynn Kramer was a keen supporter of the Jewish Federation of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, Shirat Hayam, Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, Jewish National Fund, United Way, Atlanticare Foundation, Stockton University Foundation, Atlantic Cape Community College, Community Food Bank, and many more agencies.

Lynn Kramer was born to Ann and Milton Popowsky in Atlantic City on November 8, 1942. She graduated from Atlantic City High School in 1960 and the University of Pennsylvania in 1964. One week after graduation, she married Charles Kramer and they were happily married for 56 years.

Lynn Kramer passed away on March 1, 2021 at age 78, after a short but courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
