Rabbi Max C. Currick, of the temple, presided, and the main speaker was Edward M. Baker of Cleveland. At the dedication services on Friday evening and Saturday the main speakers were Rabbi Samuel H. Goldenson of Pittsburgh and Dr. Gerson B. Levi of Chicago.

A dedication souvenir has been issued by the Temple Sisterhood, of which Mrs. Leo Weil is president. Through advertisements obtained for this booklet, the Sisterhood has been able to pay off its pledge of $10,000 to the Building Fund.
