Beth Abraham Cemetery tour & toast to synagogue founders
As part of its yearlong 125th birthday celebrations, Beth Abraham Synagogue will present Where It All Began: A Toast To Our Founders, beginning at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 5.
Participants will first meet at Beth Abraham Cemetery, 1817 W. Schantz Ave. in Kettering for a brief history tour led by The Dayton Jewish Observer Editor and Publisher Marshall Weiss and to share stories of loved ones who are interred there.
At 4:30 p.m., the program will reconvene at the site of Beth Abraham’s first known location, 300 Wayne Ave. — now the Dublin Pub — for a toast to the synagogue’s founders. The congregation rented a room there for services from 1894 or 1895 until 1902. Complimentary vegetarian appetizers and soft drinks will be available; participants pay their own way for alcoholic drinks.
R.S.V.P. for both events by April 25 to the synagogue, at 293-9520.
