SculptureEmily Arnold taught Hebrew here for 38 years.  She and her husband Dan wished to donate something of significance in honor of her time at Temple Israel.  They lovingly donated the sculpture entitled "Boy on a Rock" which was created by sculptress Ellie Dolgin.  This outstanding piece depicts a young boy sitting on a rock, reading a page containing the Hebrew inscription, which translates "To Study and To Teach."  We are honored to have the Arnolds as members of our Temple family.

Through the generosity of The Goodman Family Judaica Museum Fund and many Temple members, we have started a beautiful collection that is continuing to grow. Consider dedicating a beautiful piece of Judaica artwork to the Temple Israel Judaica & Archival Museum. 

This is a very special way to honor someone you love and be part of a continuing legacy.  

For more information, please contact Tracie Fienman at [email protected] or 248-661-5700.
