Port Richey

Congregation Beth Tefillah will present "The Lost Wooden Synagogues of Eastern Europe" at noon Feb. 26 at the Jewish Community Center of West Pasco, 9841 Scenic Drive. The lecture and video, narrated by Theodore Bikel, will discuss the Jews of Eastern Europe, who built their houses of worship (shuls or synagogues) out of wood in rural communities. Most were destroyed during the Holocaust, but photojournalist Albert Barry found what was left of many of the structures. Tickets are $10 for adults in advance and $15 at the door. The price for children 5 to 18 years old is $5; those under 5 are admitted free. For information, call (727) 847-3814 or Ellie Geier at (727) 937-6567.
