I walked by this sculpture for many years not knowing any history about it. That ended during a High Holiday breakout session.

Seems like the famous artist, Philip Ratner was instrumental when Kehilat Shalom’s started. I think he also did the Holocaust artwork in the main sanctuary.

Does anyone else have any further information or history about Philip Ratner or the family?

Shabbat Shalom

Dear Friends and Family,

We are sorry to report the passing of our beloved Elisa Gropper Linowes early yesterday morning, Saturday, August 22nd, 2020. She lived a wonderful, but too brief life. We are shocked and now heartbroken that this disease has taken her from us at such a young age - one week shy of her 56th birthday.

The funeral will be held tomorrow morning, Monday, August 24th, at 10:00 am at Judean Gardens in Olney, Maryland.

Since travel is difficult, we encourage all to join us virtually using the internet link below. The service will last about half an hour and then around 10:30 am EST people who are listening will have a chance to announce their presence so that those few assembled at the cemetery will know you are there.

We shall also hold Shiva services with longer sharing opportunities on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week at 7:00 pm. Links to those gatherings will be sent out later. Those services will last about 20 minutes and then participants will be invited to share loving memories and fun stories. We are eager to hear your remarks since we know she touched so many.

In a year or so from now, when her headstone is unveiled and hopefully Covid-19 is under control, we are planning to have a full-blown, face-to-face gathering where we can celebrate her life together.

All our love,

The Richie and Elisa Linowes Family -
Richie, Selia, Jeremy Dahlia, and Natan

Confession. Once a week, I stand in front of our Ark and say a prayer for our congregation.

Some of us in our Community have experienced losses, medical conditions, are lonely being quarantined, hungry, unemployed, or almost homeless due to the pandemic.

I believe we are and can be more of a “Sacred Community,” in which the needs of others means everything.

Please feel free to reach out to talk or if we can help in any way that makes your day better.
