Download PDF for this date

The Temple Chabei Shalom Congregation, its Brotherhood and Sisterhood, have appointed a committee of arrangements to fittingly observe the 10th anniversary of the introduction into office of its rabbi, Samuel J. Abrams. The affair is to take place on the evening of Wednesday, April 9, in the Temple Hall, Brookline.

Rabbi Abrams came to the Temple when the congregation worshipped on Union Park Street, Boston, ten years ago. During the rabbi’s administration, the Temple membership grew from 266 in 1920 to 600 in 1930; the Sisterhood membership from 250 in 1920 to 550 in 1930; the Brotherhood was organized in 1920 with a present membership of 450.
