Don’t forget about other reform congregation

Re: Peggy Mishoe’s June 21 article, “Jewish Congregation Finds Permanent Home.”

It is a wonderful article that informs readers of the success of Temple Shalom finally having a building of their own. I congratulate the congregation and its founders, Lily Ann and Ze'ev Revitch.

Mishoe quotes Lily Ann saying: “We're the only reform congregation along the Grand Strand.”

I would like to remind Ms. Revitch that the Grand Strand stretches from Little River to Georgetown. Temple Beth Elohim, which Lily Ann has visited and was a member for one year, is a reform congregation in Georgetown and has been serving the community for 111 years.

Lily Ann, may you and your congregation enjoy the same success.
