Summer Speaker Series Week 8: Howard Friedman, Tom Friedman, Sue Millward and Anne Shackman - Cass Street Stories

Written by David Golbitz, Posted in Summer Speaker Series

Last Friday, three of the four Friedman siblings, Anne, Sue and Tom (Howard was out of town), took center stage as that week's Summer Speakers.

Anne Shackman started off by recounting the history of the Friedman family at Temple Israel, from their grandparents through their children's Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.
