In Lake Charles, LA, The Episcopal Church of Good Shepherd is sharing its worship space with Temple Sinai. The synagogue is under repair due to hurricane damage.
Shabbes (Sabbath) Eve will be celebrated in Lake Charles on Friday, June 25, beginning at 5:30 at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.
“We want to express our profuse gratitude to the Church of the Good Shepherd for allowing us to use their hall,” said Rabbi Baruch (Barry) Weinstein. “We have a relationship that goes way back.”
The Rev. [Frances] Boo Kay, Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd explained: “The church and the temple have a long history going back to 1918 when the winds blew the top off our sanctuary leaving only the flying buttresses. Since our services didn’t coincide with theirs, they welcomed us to use their building until ours could be repaired.”
