Second Passover Seder Held at Temple

     The second seder of Passover this year was celebrated at our Temple on Saturday evening, 20 April 2019. Over forty Temple members enjoyed the catered seder meal and the Passover service led by our Rabbinical Intern Mimi Micner.

     The seder service was low key and participative, with attendees joining in the Haggadah reading and the singing of the traditional Passover songs. The seder was thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially the catered meal that avoided the bother of preparing the meal and having to clean up afterward.

     Shown below are photos taken at the seder.

Arnold Kaplan Feted by Friends

     Longtime Temple member, Arnold Kaplan, was feted at a luncheon held in the Napoleon Room of the Club Cafe on Columbus Avenue in Boston's South End on Sunday, 14 April 2019. The luncheon was organized and hosted by Jan Peters and Tom LaMark.

     As most of you know by now, Arnold has been at the Aberjona Rehabilitation & Nursing Center on Swanton Street in Winchester since being struck by a car back in November.

     Some 50 friends of Arnold's, including serval Temple members, attended the luncheon. Arnold was picked up and driven from the Winchester nursing home to the luncheon by his Boston entertainment friends. Until his accident, Arnold was a well-known weekend attendee at many of the various live entertainment venues in Boston. Performers from these sites entertained with numerous songs, including a special Hello Arnie sung to the melody of Hello Dolly. Arnie returned the favor by singing his own unique version of You Made Me Love You, the song that was made famous by Judy Garland in the film Broadway Melody of 1938.

     Shown below are pictures taken at the luncheon.
