New Social Hall Dedicated

On Sunday, July 19th the First Hebrew Congregation hosted a dedication of the brand new Ben and Harriet Teitel Hall. The renovation was funded by a combination of donations from the congregation and a matching gift from the Teitel Charitable Trust. We were lucky enough to have Jerry Cook on hand to present a check on behalf of the trust.
