On Sunday, June 11, Kol Rinah held a ‘Leaving the Sanctuary’ ceremony to say farewell to the congregation’s building on Hanley Road (the former Shaare Zedek Synagogue), as it prepares to move to a new building in Clayton. Kol Rinah members led the congregation’s Torahs out of the ceremony in a procession and packed up prayer books in preparation for the move. Shenker is a past president of Kol Rinah, which was created by the merger of Shaare Zedek and Brith Sholom Kneseth Israel. All photos: Bill Motchan
