Reform Temple at East Orange, N.j., Dedicates ‘interfaith Chapel’

Download PDF for this date

The first interfaith brotherhood chapel to be part of a synagogal complex was dedicated here today when Temple Sharey Tefilo, a Reform congregation, formally opened a new, $500, 000 building that includes the chapel. The chapel was named after Rabbi Marius Ranson who, for 18 years, was the spiritual leader of Sharey Tefilo. Rabbi Ranson, now living in retirement in Florida, was present with his wife as the synagogue’s guest of honor.
