Download PDF for this date

Congregation Rodfei Zedek, one of the leading conservative congregations in this city, announced today through its rabbi, Dr. Benjamin A. Daskal, that it has arranged to hold a separate Children’s Service for the Holidays sponsored by the children for which an attendance of 500 children has already been pledged. The children will have their own rabbi, cantor, and sexton.

A real Torah, in miniature form, imported by Rabbi Daskal from Palestine, will be placed in the special ark now being provided.
