L’Dor va Dor – Link Project for the High Holidays
L’Dor va Dor from Generation to Generation. As you enter the main doors of the building you cannot help but notice the new sculpture that was installed last fall. We are asking that each family help and make a ring that will be placed on the sculpture to symbolize Temple Israel’s, past, present and future.

On Rosh Hashanah we will have “link kits” available for you to take home and design your link. Please take one kit per family. We ask that you bring back your link on Yom Kippur so that we can prepare it to be placed on the sculpture.
