Download PDF for this date

Congregation Har Sinai has just brought to a close a five-day period of festivity celebrating the dedication of its new Temple. The occasion also marked the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the congregation, the oldest Jewish group in Trenton. The Temple was built at a cost approximating $200,000. Rabbi Abraham Holtzberg is spiritual head of the congregation and Julius Schafer, one of Trenton’s outstanding merchants, is the president.
