Kibbutz Beit Oren Torah Dedication

On July 22-23, 2011 Temple members Ronni Pressman, her husband Fred, their son Randy, and Jerry Krivitzky brought a TNT Torah (formerly belonging to Beth Shalom Reform Temple) to Israel to present to Kibbutz Beit Oren, a secular kibbutz in the northern part of Israel near Haifa. Jerry's personal account of how this mitzvah opportunity came about and was carried out is attached in After the Fire. The video montage includes original photography by Randy Pressman and was edited and produced by Ronni and Fred Pressman.

Simchat Torah at Temple Ner Tamid

Members of Temple Ner Tamid in Bloomfield, NJ dance with Torahs in celebration of Simchat Torah. This year's ceremony was made sweeter by the fact that the temple welcomed the Torahs from Beth Sholom Reform Temple, a Clifton synagogue that merged with Ner Tamid earlier this year.
