Retired Couple Finds Strong Jewish Community in New Home

Sarah and Dick Sandler moved to Bethlehem a few months shy of their 60th wedding anniversary. After living in Florida for 30 years, where their synagogue attendance and volunteering was their “focus of life,” they were looking for a strong Jewish community in their new home. They joined Congregation Brith Sholom, where they met people who “helped us immeasurably to feel connected.”

Sarah has become involved with Hadassah and cooking Friday night dinners, and Dick, who served in the Navy Air Force in the Korean War, particularly likes the convenience that “nothing is more than 10 minutes away.”
