Revere Temple Demolished but Ark at TST

The Boston Globe recently reported on the demolition of the Revere temple from which Shir Tikva preserved the ark, now residing in the Beit Midrash. The temple stood in a once-thriving Jewish neighborhood filled with kosher butchers and bakeries. But as time passed, Jewish families moved out of Revere, and fewer and fewer people went to the synagogue. Two years ago temple leaders voted to suspend services because of dwindling attendance.The congregation last held services on the high holidays in 2014.
