Wall of History

CAI “Wall of History” Dedication – Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012

Three panels recounting milestones in the history of Congregation Anshei Israel, as well as critical national and international events, were dedicated after years of work to produce them. The panels were donated by Mimi and Charles Blitzer and family in honor of their parents, the late Pauline and Leon Blitzer, long-time CAI congregants who were actively involved in the Jewish community. Guest speaker, Eileen Warshaw, Executive Director of the Jewish History Museum, presented “The Jewish Pioneers of the American Southwest,” followed by the Mincha Service with Torah readings by the Blitzer family; Third Meal and the Ma’ariv Service. A special Havdallah service and dedication of the panels was held by the “Wall of History.”
