Hi Beth Emeth Members!

Ten couples took part in the marriage re-consecration on Friday evening, April 11. It was a beautiful ceremony witnessed by a large number of congregants, family, and friends, and presided over by Rabbi Robinson, accompanied by the wonderful music of Cantor Stanton and organist, Dennis Stewart.

The ten couples are: Fred and Mary DeVries (55 yrs), Judith and Harvey Gilbert (50 yrs), Sybil and Charles Schwartz (50 yrs), Joanne and Alan Cherrin (50 yrs), Judy and Richard Goldbaum (45 yrs), HarrietAnn and Richard Litwin (25 yrs),  Diane and David Jupiter (20 yrs), Nancy and Nick D’Argenio (15 yrs), Sarah and Jason Kittinger (10 yrs), and Miriam and Dan Sandler (5 yrs).

A great big thank you goes to our office and custodial staff for their support, especially Lisa, who prepared the embroidered pouches that held the ceremonial “glass” that each couple broke, and the colorful program that was distributed to the congregants. Also, special thanks to Riva and Bill Brown, our wedding ushers, to Miriam Sandler who photographed each couple, and to Sheila and Phil Weinberg who organizes the event each year.

If next year your marriage is a multiple of 5 years and you wish to take part in this ceremony, please contact Sheila or Phil Weinberg at 302-475-4962 or
