Hevreh at 40!

This past Shabbat, we premiered From Strength to Strength: Hevreh at 40. This film tells the story of our community over the first 40 years of its life. Over 60 hours of oral history footage was taken, and that now lives in our congregational archives.


We owe thanks to everyone who took part in telling Hevreh’s story, to Carol Beyer and Marion Adler who have headed up our archives project, to Diane Pearlman and Laura Gratz of the Berkshire Film and Media Collaborative who produced the film, and to our Board of Trustees and Past Presidents who’s collective gift made this project financially possible.
