Torah walk to Temple L'Chayim's new synagogue


Nathan Axel and Jay Forman, co-founder's of Temple L'Chayim, carry the Torah together at one point.

Temple L'Chayim Synagogue is now settled in its permanent home in Clermont. They had a Torah Walk on Friday evening, May 23, and even their oldest member, Millie Altholz, 99, joined in the walk. Altholz will be 100 years old on Jan. 14, 2015. The congregants wanted her to sit at the synagogue during the walk, however, she felt the honor was too great not to walk and so she walked.

Altholz is actively involved in synagogue life as the synagogue's telephone chairman and does a magnificent job, according to Jay Forman, executive director of Temple L'Chayim. "Her memory is better than most people's memory," he commented.

"It was so exciting for all the people that were there. We are growing very fast in Central Florida," said one of the congregants. 

Temple L'Chayim is in the planning stages for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services and now is the time to make reservations for these services. RSVP by July 15th to the email address temple.l.chayim@cfl.rr.com.
