Annual Celebration and Adbook 5783/2023: This year, the shul’s annual ad book will be honoring the Andler family legacy at Congregation Beth El-Atereth Israel. Our shul, which was the first orthodox shul in Newton Centre, had its first minyanim in the home of Sam and Frieda Andler, z’l, the parents of Arnie Andler. Ever since then, the Andler family in general and Arnie in specific has played a major role in the growth of our shul and community. We have benefited much by the generosity and service of the founders of our community. Now it is time for us to step forward and continue their work by building a legacy of our own. There is no better way to express our appreciation to the Andler family and to Arnie than supporting the shul they love so much and have done so much for. Please consider placing an ad in this year’s annual tribute by going to the following link: https://www.bethelnewton.org/adbook. Note that in addition to the general ad section, there is a memorial section where you can place an ad in memory of a loved one. The annual tribute adbook is one of the shul’s major fundraisers that allows us to continue our programming and promote the values of the Torah. More information to follow regarding a shul community event paying tribute to Arnie and the Andler family.
The Semichat Chaver Program will continue learning this Tuesday, June 6th at 7:00pm.
