About this Item

4to. 79pp. Half imitation leather over color pictorial paper-covered boards. Front and rear endpapers illustrated with a photographic reproduction in duo tone showing the exterior of the Congregation. Illustrated title-page. "Congregation Sinai is celebrating the joyous occasion of the burning of its mortgage. This is an act of liberation. Beyond that it is a symbol of which it might be said that the flames of a spiritual torch have been set alight.Within these pages is an historical record of how Sinai Congregation, as a manifestation of Conservative Judaism in America, came into being as a religious force. The real essence of Sinai's success lies in the fact that above all else it has become a "Beth Hakneset," House of assembly, preserving everything traditional in Judaism by placing it in an American atmosphere.The spiritual torch which has been set alight will serve as a beacon of re-dedication. The burning of the mortgage is the finish of another chapter in the Congregation's history. It is an act which will free the Congregation for greater progress in a world in which we pray that all nations will be guided by the principles of justice and mortality." Illustrated with b/w photographic reproductions of portraits of the board of members, Sinai Forum, Confirmation Class of 1944, Sinai Choir, Sinai Sisterhood, Sinai School Teachers, executive staff, past presidents of the Sisterhood and Congregation, Mrs. Emil Brown, a group picture of students mourning the passing of Franklin D. Roosevelt, as well as images of the interior of the temple. Slight rubbing on head and tail of spine, corners worn and bumped. Boards slightly bowed.
