Summer of 2023: Temple establishes Genizah for burial of sacred texts; road repairs complete; new water spigots

The summer months of 2023 have been used to complete some much-needed work at the  Temple Cemetery.

A large tree with roots that were causing road problems has been removed. The paving of the lower road completes the road project. All roads are now up to par.

Sears Monument cleaned 72 stones and made necessary repairs where needed. Three rusted water spigots were replaced.

Old prayer books and other books selected by Rabbi Blair were buried in a newly created Genizah from two plots. A marker has been ordered.

Regular lawn mowing and tree trimming has been done on schedule.
