Temple Beth El in Quincy, Massachusetts is looking for a few good Jewish homes for its fine arts and Judaica collection. Sadly, this synagogue is closing its doors due to the shrinking numbers of the Jewish population in the town and its environs.
A silver candelabrum, colorful mosaics, woven tapestries, silver crowns for Torah scrolls, and intricate mezuzahs are for sale. Ed Gurwitch, a spokesman for those involved in the sale, says that a portion of the money collected will potentially help to fund grants for young people enabling them to travel to Israel.
Well, there is always a silver lining to every cloud, and something good can come out of every event. So, I guess you could say, it’ll all be okay.
