United Hebrew Congregation Terre Haute is preparing for guests this weekend, as Temple Israel makes its debut on the Farrington’s Grove Holiday Tour, 2-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4. The bi-annual tour marks the 40th anniversary of Farrington’s Grove Historical District, founded in 1976 under the sponsorship of the Terre Haute Redevelopment Department to promote preservation and improvement of the neighborhood’s historic homes.
The Hanukkah store is open! United Hebrew Congregation Terre Haute Sisterhood is offering an array of holiday items, including candles, dreidels, decorations, gift wrap, foil menorahs and more, at low, low prices, in the Vestry Room at Temple Israel.
In Army fatigues and camouflage yarmulke, Student Rabbi Rabbi Aaron Rozovsky delivered Shabbat to a packed house of seniors and their guests on Veterans Day at Westminster Village.
Rabbi Aaron drew energy from the diverse audience, which included numerous veterans of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, leading them through prayers, hymns and service songs, including some tailored to the holiday. After one hymn, he thanked the crowd for its response: “I felt like an Israeli Dean Martin up here!”
Arts-and-crafts enthusiast Jackie Silver spoke at the November United Hebrew Congregation Terre Haute Sisterhood meeting about scrapbooking and crafts, and led the group in producing their own homemade Hanukkah cards.
Sisterhood president Patty Lewis contributed photos of the event.
