The following is from Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel
Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel (TSTI) in South Orange held its annual summer party for members last month. Attendees enjoyed potluck appetizers and desserts with a contest for the best dishes and danced to music provided by a DJ. Socializing and dining were under the summer sky on the stone patio as well as inside the historic mansion, which comprises the original part of the Reform synagogue’s building. The party brings together TSTI members and clergy from throughout Essex County and is one of several social events the synagogue holds for members throughout the year. Among the partygoers were Bill Strugger of Maplewood (center), who is the outgoing vice president of development, with Jeff and Sylvia Cutler of South Orange; Jeff Cutler is the incoming vice president of finance on TSTI’s board of trustees.
Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel is located at 425 Scotland Road in South Orange. For information about the synagogue’s services, programs and religious school, visit http://www.tsti.org.
