Temple in Sherman Celebrates Reopening and Hanukkah Holiday

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX--A local temple had two reasons to celebrate tonight--the first night of the Hanukkah holiday and the re-opening of their place of worship. We told you about this before, two months ago, when vandals broke in and stole the Torah -- their most precious possession and destroyed the inside of the temple. Crews have worked the past few months to rebuild and renovate the synagogue and tonight, nearly 100 people came out to celebrate the first service back at the Beth Emeth temple.

"So, this will be kind of a multi-service, it will be the first night of Hanukkah. It will be the re-dedication of the temple after our vandalism and we will have a Sabbath service also, so we will have kind of a two in one tonight," says Andy Faber, the president of the Beth Emeth temple in Sherman.

Faber says, it wasn't just congregation members who came out tonight, several other local community members came as well. As for the Torah, they're using a Torah borrowed from a congregation in Dallas, as they continue their search for a new one.
