United Hebrew Congregation conducts services every Friday, with Temple members officiating most evenings when a student rabbi is not present.
On May 12, five ladies who comprised the Temple’s 2016 B’nai Mitzvah class took that role, as Karen Harris, Debra Israel, Patty Lewis, Wilma Turetzky and Sara Wormser-Waltermire delivered service, Torah portion and sermon, as well as an expansive oneg Shabbat.
Following the service, the congregation joins Herschel for the kiddush and hamotzi.
The 2016 B’nai Mitzvah class gathers at the bima:
The oneg continues with cookies, cake and coffee.
