Brotherhood Sponsors Congressman Everett
May 28, 2008
On Wednesday, May 28, the Temple Emanu-El Brotherhood sponsored an evening with the the area’s retiring United States Congressman Terry Everett. Having served with distinction for sixteen years, we were pleased to hear Mr. Everett’s thoughts about Israel: the issues, challenges and prospects for peace.
The audience of sixty included members of the congregation as well as our interfaith community friends from First United Methodist, St. Columba Catholic Church, Evergreen Presbyterian, Triumphant Cross Lutheran, and Episcopal Church of the Nativity.
After the Congressman’s speech and a question/answer session, Brotherhood President Robert Goldsmith and Vice President for Community Affairs Jarrod Blumberg presented to Mr. Everett a framed Jewish National Fund Certificate celebrating the planting of two trees in Israel honoring Terry and Barbara Everett.
