A simcha to remember at Temple Israel


The evening of Dec. 6, 2014, in the Roth Social Hall at Temple Israel proved to be festive, elegant and memorable as congregants and guests gathered to celebrate the synagogue’s 60th anniversary. The double theme of this diamond celebration honored Temple Israel’s founding members and was in honor of Harry and Rhea Rein’s 60th wedding anniversary. The event was chaired by Michelle Bilsky.

Cocktail hour featured Israeli hors d’oeuvres followed by dinner, dancing and a silent auction. The program for the evening featured Arlene van de Rijn who honored the founding members and Robin Katzman who honored her parents, Harry and Rhea Rein.

President Eric Hoffman said, “The uniqueness of this gala was the mixing of different generations. I loved seeing founders and their family members together with other long-time members mingling with our newest congregants. It was truly cross generational and a symbol of Temple IsraeI’s ongoing strength and vitality.”
