Insightful article



Kudos to Charles Bakst for his illuminating, insightful article re Fall River’s Temple Beth El (February 2024) in its glorious days of yore. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the aforementioned without even having to refer to Proust’s legendary Madeleine. Succinctly, the warm-hearted tribute touched me personally as I was one of those who was there at that time period.

Bakst has truly developed a keen sense of–and written about–what was very special about Temple Beth El in the 1950s and, for that, we should all be appreciative.
Thanks, Charles!
