Methodists to Share 100-year-old Synagogue for Worshipping

Download PDF for this date

A practical application of the ideals of brotherhood will be put into operation here about May 1 when the local Methodist congregation begins worshipping in Temple Beth Jacob, 100-year-old synagogue here.

The Methodists will use the synagogue while their old church is torn down and a new edifice is erected on the same site, about the end of the year. Negotiations for the Protestants to use the synagogue were initiated by Rabbi Maurice J. Bloom. spiritual leader of Beth Jacob, during Brotherhood Week, last month. Rabbi Bloom will serve as an honorary member of the church building committee.
