One of our very own young congregants is currently serving as a lone soldier (a soldier without immediate family living in the country) in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). His name is Jake Zimmerman and he is a homegrown Congregation Beth Israel kid. The Zimmerman family have been members of the synagogue since 1933. As the winter months approach, Jake and his brigade are in need of winter gear. Please support Jake and other IDF soldiers. Make a donation today.
