I Got a Name: The Jim and Ingrid Croce Story
Thursday, December 10th, 11:30 a.m.

Ingrid Croce

Ingrid Croce

Join us for Sisterhood’s traditional Chanukah luncheon and celebration featuring guest speakers Ingrid Croce and Jimmy Rock.

Everyone has a life story, none more recognizable to those who grew up during the ‘60s than Jim and Ingrid Croce. Jim left us much too soon but we cling to his music and beautiful lyrics that ring even more true today – “there never seems to be enough time to do the things you want to do.”

His wife Ingrid’s story is just as intriguing. Ingrid and her twin sister Phyllis Jacobson grew up in Philadelphia. After her parents divorced, she lived with an aunt and was brought up in a traditional Jewish home. Many twists and turns in Ingrid’s story brought her at the age of 16 to a “hootenanny” in Philly where she was performing as a folksinger contestant and Jim was the judge. And, as it is written, “the rest is history.”

In 1988, Ingrid married Jimmy Rock and together they partnered to become one of San Diego’s leading restauranteurs. Jimmy Rock will share some insights about co-writing the biography I Got a Name: The Jim Croce Story with his wife Ingrid.

Please bring a NEW, unwrapped book for preschool or school-aged children. All gifts will be given to Jewish Family Service for distribution to families in need.

Our Chanukah celebration and luncheon is $10. RSVP online or by sending your check to Tifereth Israel Sisterhood, 6660 Cowles Mountain Blvd., San Diego CA 92119.
