Here’s (Rabbi Jonathan) Sacks, z”l, with (AKSE’s own Rabbi Steven) Saks — Really!
On June 3, 1962, before the completion of our new synagogue building, a time capsule was placed in the cornerstone between the large concrete tablets of the Ten Commandments facing Washington Blvd. On June 12, 2018, 56 years later, the time capsule was extracted. On the next day, June 13, the contents of the time capsule were revealed before our annual congregational meeting.
Thanks to Paula Gordon for coordinating this project and for assembling a slideshow detailing the extraction of the time capsule and the revelation of its contents. You can view the slideshow here.
