The developer and philanthropist died last week.
Haron Dahan's life included fighting in World War II and millions of dollars in philanthropy in, around and beyond his Pikesville community. Dahan, a former developer, died March 11. He was 87.

Coordinator Deb Shaivitz hopes to raise $10,000 through donations.
Zumba instructor Deb Shaivitz plans a three-hour, fundraising Zumbathon on Nov. 4 to benefit Alzheimer's disease research. It will be held from 1-4 p.m. at Beth Tfiloh Congregation in Pikesville. "Zumba transcends age, gender, color and religion," Shaivitz said in a statement. "Exhilaration would be the only word that fits here." The event is open to all people of all ages, she said.

This will be the third year for …

The Baltimore Jewish Times discusses the scheduling conflict between the Orioles Opening Day and the official first day of Passover on April 6.
What will Jewish, die-hard Orioles fans do for opening day this year? Here's the rub, according to a Baltimore Jewish Times report: Orioles Opening Day at home against the Minnesota Twins, and the first seder of Passover are both on April 6. The times are as follows: Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg of Beth Tfiloh Congregation advises doing both if you don't have to prepare the dinner yourself. "The seder is guaranteed; the Orioles are a hope for future redemption," Wahlberg said in the JT report.
