More than 300 congregants, friends and community members walked the red carpet on Sunday, October 30th at our Sesquicentennial Gala Premiere, as we raised a remarkable $270,000 for our Ensuring the Future endowment campaign, through commemorative ads, sponsorships, auction bids and donations.  It's not every day that a synagogue celebrates 150 years, especially a history as rich as ours!  As we wrap up our year-long anniversary celebration, we hope you agree that this has been an amazing year of "honoring the past, celebrating the present and ensuring the future."
