Centennial Photos

To initiate our celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the Hebrew Institute of White Plains, we will be posting photos weekly that illustrate the history of our congregation. While we have a collection of old synagogue photos, if you have photographs that you believe may be of historical interest to the Centennial Committee, please forward copies to Teri at the shul office.
