Former site of a charity dedicated to Rebecca Gratz
Founded in 1904 and named for the Jewish philanthropist and educator, the Rebecca Gratz Club is believed to have been a settlement house for young single Jewish women immigrants. Gratz was involved in establishing the Female Association for the Relief Women and Children in Reduced Circumstances (1801), Philadelphia Orphan Society (1814) and the Hebrew Sunday School Society (1838). Today the building houses luxury apartments.
