February 2, 1981
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Barry Rosen, one of the former hostages who participated with 21 of his comrades in a joyful welcome home reception here last Friday, made a stop at Temple Emanu-El together with his wife, Barbara. The couple had telephoned in advance to make sure their visit would be all right, Rosen said.

The Rosens were greeted by Rabbi David Posner, associate rabbi of the world’s largest Reform congregation, and assistant Rabbi Richard Chapin. Rosen asked if he could hold one of the synagogue’s Torah’s for a few minutes. Then he and Mrs. Rosen and the two rabbis joined in prayer before the ark. The Rosens visited Temple Emanu-El after attending services at St. Patrick’s Cathedral where Mrs. Rosen, a Roman Catholic, took part in the services.
