Members and Friends

MEMBERS AND FRIENDS of Congregation B’Nai Israel, including Interfaith Council Members Pastor Richard Dykstra and Pastor Debra Judisky, turned out in Margaretville Sunday evening for the lighting of a new menorah on Main Street. The Business Association of Margaretville spearheaded the effort to replace a menorah that was destroyed during Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Sunday night’s Hanukah opener was the first time a menorah has been lit in the community since then. Erwin Karl, Chair of the Open Eye Theater Foundation and a technical leader for many of their shows built the new menorah for the occasion. Each night up to and including Dec. 9, another light will be lit. Photo by Joan Lawrence-Bauer
