Conservative Jews Hold Yom Kippur Services in Presbyterian Church

A local Presbyterian church allowed the South Huntington Jewish Center, a newly formed Conservative congregation, to use its recently constructed educational building for High Holy Day services. Rabbi Nathan Kapner, who officiated at the services, said that the act of the Sweet Hollows Presbyterian Church “was once again evidence that there is no bigotry in God’s world.”

At the request of the Rev. Dr. Alfred G. Crezenzo, pastor of the church, the Jewish congregation permitted the Torahs and other religious articles to remain in the educational building, so that their meaning could be explained to the young members of the church on Sunday.
