According to Randie, "Part of the sanctuary ceiling fell down just after Yom Kippur, 2011. Last year's fundraiser helped pay for those repairs."
In the old days, Actors' Temple member, Sophie Tucker would get The Shuberts to donate a theater & she would produce an annual show. The money raised would help pay for the temple's yearly expenses. "Now they just have me to gather my theater and cabaret performer friends. It's always a swell party, as well as a mitzvah!"
