The Russian Revolution, World War II, the invention of television and the Internet – Joseph Vinnitsky has lived through it all.

On June 20, Vinnitsky turned 100 years old, the latest milestone in a colorful life that began in a village in czarist Russia.

In 1979, Joseph Vinnitsky and his family resettled in New Haven with help from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven. Vinnitsky became a neighborhood fixture on Norton Street, where he jogged each morning in a routine that lasted well into his 90s.

While he has since retired the running shoes, Vinnitsky still works out every day and can slow dance with the best of them.

Family and friends helped celebrate his birthday on Sunday, June 23 at the JCC.
