ark-bima-vertical-reducedPlease join us on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at 4:00 PM for a reception in honor of the Roiter family.  The evening will feature a live klezmer band, stories from the Roiter family's years of making our shul the wonderful place it is, hors d'oeuvres, and dessert.

The Roiter family is one of the founding families of our Shul, with generations serving the Shul in many ways from the early years through the 1980's.  Come meet the 5th generation of Roiters to be involved with the Adam's Street Shul as they celebrate what their Great-Great-Grandparents helped start, and subsequent generations continued, to make a wonderful place to gather, daven, learn, and celebrate together.

Making History in Nonantum

jroiter-crop-reduce150-labeledOver 100 years ago,  Joseph Roiter, having left the Ukraine with his family for an uncertain future in this country, joined with six other recent arrivals to found a small synagogue in Newton, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston.  He then served two terms as President of the congregation that you, dear members and friends, have animated and strengthened so that it has now served the Jewish community and the larger neighborhood for over a century. 

Joseph remained active in the synagogue all his life, including serving on the Bima Committee of 1924 that raised funds and contracted to build the Ark.  His seat, number 4 on the east wall, still bears his initials. 

hroiter-crop-redue150labeledHis sons, Harry and Mendy Roiter, continued the Roiter Family's involvement.  When President Louis Fried passed away in the mid-1980's, it was Vice-President Harry Roiter, himself already ailing, who recruited Bert Grand to become President in his stead.  Harry Roiter was also the donor of the Shul's first air conditioning.  Brother Mendy long outlived Harry, and although no longer healthy enough to come to shul, Mendy maintained his membership right into the 21st century.

2014-12-06 Eric-and-grandparents-fixed-smallLongstanding member Eric Roiter is a grandson of Joseph and Zipporah Roiter and a nephew of Harry and Mendy Roiter.  Shown here with his grandparents, Eric grew up in Newport but recalls visiting the Adams Street Shul as a child with his grandfather and uncles.

Eric is heading up the family's celebration of their ancestors' interest in the Shul. 

You are cordially invited to be our guest at an event honoring the Roiter Family on Sunday, December 7th at 4:00 PM.  The event begins with a reception featuring a live klezmer band, hors d'oeuvres, wine and schnapps.  This is followed by a series of stories and presentations; and finally we will enjoy a dessert buffet together.
