Hebrew Center Dedicated In Solemn Island Service
Jason Gay
In a three-hour ceremony marked by community celebration, joyous music and traditional Jewish rituals, the new Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center was consecrated Saturday morning in Vineyard Haven.
The consecration of the new center, built in the past year, attracted an audience of more than 200 Vineyarders, mostly congregation members, but also people of other faiths who came to honor both the building and the growing Island Jewish community.

Hands Across the World

On May 31, the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center hosted a fundraiser for the earthquake victims in Nepal. It was a wonderful success, selling out two days before the event. We raised almost $3,000 that will be donated to the American Jewish World Service, who have partners on the ground in Nepal, helping the most disenfranchised of the Nepalese community.

I would like to thank Rabbi Caryn Broitman, the Hebrew Center and all the volunteers for hosting this event and underwriting it, so that every dollar we raised can go directly to the people who are in need.
