Rabbi Elias Lieberman on the East End Meeting House

"The Jewish community had been meeting in St. Barnabas Church, in bank meeting rooms, and the opportunity to create a home was really just enormously powerful and wonderful."

Rabbi Elias Lieberman discusses the East End Meeting House, which is part of the Falmouth Jewish Congregation. This interview was conducted by Troy Clarkson on February 24, 2020 at Falmouth Community Television.
