I have lived some of this. In 1970 or so, I was 15, and we were founding the Young Israel of Plainview NY. We were just graduating from people’s houses, and we had a deal to rent the use of a meeting room from the Plainview teacher’s union on weekends.

My parents built an ark out of an armoire and my mom did the needlework for the bimah and parochet.

We were fortunate that she had no trouble finding what fabric she needed, but the story of a new shul, with improvisation and hard work, resonates with me.

Such Hashkacha Pratit!

I love this story!
If we keep our eyes open we will see HaShem helping us in all we do.
And your gold trim helps add to the ‘shul’ look.
Kol HaKavod!

Mazaltov. What a nice combination of Hasgotah Protas and determination.
FYI fabric comes in bolts of 48″ 54″ and 60″. Upholstery fabric is commonly the 54″ or 60″ and for such projects is sturdier than other fabrics.

thanks for sharing
