The three ladies we are remembering this month: Lillian Adelman, Millie Felstein and Pat Hoffman. Lillian was a member of United Hebrew Congregation and taught school for many years with Vigo County Schools. Millie graduated from Wiley High School, was a member of United Hebrew Congregation and was co-founder of Clothes Closet. Pat was active in many activities at the Temple.
Indiana State professor of theater Arthur Feinsod may be familiar to United Hebrew Congregation Terre Haute members as author of Coming to See Aunt Sophie, the 2014 play about Jan Karski, honored as Righteous Among the Nations for his efforts to save Polish Jews from the Nazis.
Now, Arthur has directed Clifford Odets’ Awake and Sing!, set to premiere at the New Theater, 538 N 7th St. on the ISU campus. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 9 through Friday, Nov. 12, and 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13. Tickets are $10. Call 812-237-3333 for more information.
If you are reading your Hadashot newsletter today, that means we have made it through 5776. I think that is God’s way of telling us our work here on earth is not done. Have you ever wondered what that work is? I know I do. At the end of the day I try to look back and think, did I save a life, teach someone something or tell someone I love them and they are important?
We are very blessed in this country to be able to celebrate our faith in peace and without fear. This right and guarantee has been ensured by men and women who in every generation have gone forth to protect us.
This service is our way of showing our gratitude. Please bring a veteran — friend, neighbor, colleague or family member — to this service.
