Honoring the Late Rabbi Barry Friedman…A Retrospective at B’nai Abraham

Temple B’nai Abraham is fortunate to house a beautiful space in the lobby of the synagogue to display exhibits, known as the Sodowick Museum Showcase. Throughout the year, the Museum is home to a variety of exhibits stewarded by the creativity of co-chairs Ellen Klein and Evi Meinhardt and their committee.

From now  through the month of August there is a wonderful exhibit honoring the late Rabbi Barry Friedman, who served as Senior Rabbi of Temple B’nai Abraham from 1977 until his retirement in 1999.  Rabbi Friedman was associated with TBA starting in 1959 first as Youth Director and teacher, and then returning in 1968 to become Associate Rabbi to Dr. Joachim Prinz.  The exhibit includes items representing the inspiring influence he had in shaping this independent congregation as well as items from his personal collection of photos, books and Judaica on loan from his wife Irene Friedman.
