Leadership conference, stained glass repair, Kristallnacht event on tap; OSU honors Betsy

By Terry Fear

Terry Fear is vice president/secretary of United Hebrew Congregation Terre Haute.

On Sunday, October 28, three UHC board members will attend the Union for Reform Judaism’s Day of Leadership Learning at Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation.

This program will take place in 40 reform congregations across North America and will bring leaders together to collaborate and generate new ideas to strengthen their synagogues.

Work to continue on stained glass windows

The board has received recommendations from Indiana Landmarks for companies that specialize in repairing historic stained glass windows.

We will seek candidates to examine the sanctuary’s windows, recommend new protective coverings and provide cost estimates for the work.

Kristallnacht play set for November 11 at UHC

Theater 7 will present a staged reading of This Side of Eternity: The Story of Kristallnacht, by former Terre Haute resident Christopher Bibby, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, in the UHC sanctuary.

The event description reads: “In reflection of the 80th anniversary of this historic event, This Side of Eternity: The Story of Kristallnacht examines the nature of evil itself, the real human beings behind genocide, and asks if it’s possible to resist in the face of insurmountable odds.”

Professional honors for Betsy and Jo
