Temple Sholom’s Elephant

At this year’s Olam HaMitzvot, Temple Sholom raised $135 to foster an orphan elephant baby at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Nursery in Kenya.  Here’s the latest news (and an adorable picture) of “our” baby.”
Andy Simmons and his partner Mitchell Loewenthal-Grassini are 20-year members of Temple Sholom and are the first same-sex couple to have had a union ceremony in the Temple’s history, in 2001.
