Tikvat Israel


Join us for Simchat Torah service.

In recognition of their volunteer leadership of Tikvat Israel’s spiritual and physical presence, Susan and Alan Apter will be honored as the 5778 Kallat Bereshit and Chattan Torah, respectively, during Simchat Torah.

Their recognition on the holiday includes special aliyot during the Torah service as well as a luncheon in their honor following services in the social hall. (Donations in honor of the Apters to support the Kiddush lunch may be sent to the synagogue office.)

Literally the “the bride of the beginning” and “groom of the Torah,” the Kallat Bereshit and Chattan Torah honors are given each year to two deserving Tikvat Israel congregants or staff members who have made significant contributions to the synagogue’s spiritual, educational and/or cultural life.
