I have enjoyed a delightful time really taking to heart the huge word “love” and trying to assimilate its wonderful qualities. I would like to think that this short four-letter word has made a difference in my life and that others can see and experience it in our day-to-day contact. I have learned several things from Professor Henry Drummond, who wrote the little gem “The Greatest Thing in the World,” where he avidly declares that love is indeed that. The edition I have is copyrighted in 1890, by James Pott and Co.

As Temple Emanuel’s new orchard for the homeless opened with a dedication ceremony in May, guests and their children walked through looking at the blueberries, blackberries, grapes, and several citrus and nut trees planted in what used to be a vacant lot across from the Temple.

Temple president Allison Nathan Getz recognized the work of the social justice committee members who she said have “made this happen.”
