Silver Anniversary Shabbat

At the Friday evening Shabbat service on November 18th, over 350 people gathered together to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first Shabbat service in our sanctuary. Old friends, new friends and familiar faces shared a wonderful evening of reminiscing and celebrating the history of Temple Shalom and all those who came before us that helped to ensure that there would be a strong, vibrant Jewish presence in Naples.
Many thanks are due to those who worked so hard to make the evening a success including the 25th Anniversary committee: Lori Cohen (Chair), Helen Weinfeld (Historian), Beth Feldman, Susan Freeman, Jane Perman, Daryl Sissman and Sheldon Starman. Thanks go also to The Mens’ Club, The Sisterhood, the staff of Temple Shalom and Nancy and Jack Wiadro for arranging for our special guest, Cantor Jeff Klepper.
