The Way We Were in 1957

The Way We Were in 1957

 

Heska Amuna Synagogue Kindergarten Sunday School graduation

 

Heska Amuna religious school classes met at the Jewish Community Center on Vine Avenue from 1956 when the joint Community Sunday School disbanded until the new building on Kingston Pike was completed.

 

Left to right: the late Helene Bebergal (Markus), the late Mark Balloff, Alan Gruenberg, Donna Tobe, Mitch Burnett, Michael Burnett, Lindsey Brown, teacher Marcia Goodstein (Menuskin)

 

In the background are several adults. Visible are the late Rabbi Aaron Mauskopf and the late Mitchell Robinson.

 

The Archives has a second slide of this event which shows a bit more of the interior of the old Center.

 

Donna Tobe, Mitch and Michael Burnett, and Mitchell Robinson's wife Natalie and son Pace continue to live in Knoxville.

 

Thanks to Michael Burnett for identifying his classmates.
