It is with great sadness that the Temple announces the passing of Mel Mael,
our long-time member, Gabbai Godol, Saturday morning Baíal Koreh, Sunday morning
cook and steadying Temple influence. Mel passed away Sunday, 25 August 2019. He
cannot be replaced and will be greatly missed. Even when he didnít feel up to par,
Mel was present at nearly every minyon, ensuring that the service was conducted
with dignity and according to proper Jewish tradition.
Our heartfelt condolences are extended to Melís family. May God comfort you among
the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
On late Sunday afternoon, 18 August 2019, we held a successful and
very enjoyable open house at the Temple with an estimated 50 or so people attending. Soft Jazz
music was provided by Max Whiting and the Musicmakers. Max is a longtime Temple member.
In addition to some live cool Jazz, there were plentiful refreshments,
a video presentation on the Temple's history and recent activities and events, tables with
information on the Temple's Hebrew School, the Sisterhood, and the Brotherhood. But, must
important of all was the meeting, greeting and shmoozing that took place. All-in-all, a very
successful and enjoyable event.
Pictures taken at the event are shown below.
