It was some simcha as seniors at a Federation Housing complex in Elkins Park welcomed a Torah brought to them by Old York Road Temple-Beth Am of Abington.
Ark of triumph? That’s what it was all about at the Samuel A. Green House, a Federation Housing complex for seniors in Elkins Park, as the leaders of Old York Road Temple-Beth Am presented the residents with a Torah for the ark in their chapel.
It was a festive affair as congregants brought the Torah from their Abington site to the seniors, who greeted the arrival with song and dance — and, maybe, more than a tear or two of joy.
