The formation of Temple Ner Tamid ("Eternal Light") was the result of a truly historic decision. Reasoning that the needs of a Jewish community take precedence over individual ideological differences, the leadership of Temples B'nai Zion and Menorah came together to create a single synagogue committed to both liberal values and traditional expression.
Following months of meetings in private homes as well as the two congregations, a consolidation committee led by Julius Fisher (z"l) and Manny Rothenberg (z"l) helped to create Temple Ner Tamid. On a sunny day in June of 1980 the Torahs of Temple B'nai Zion were paraded down Broad Street and entered into the sanctuary of the newly dedicated Temple Ner Tamid.
Nevertheless, what Ner Tamid has become cannot be separated from the foundations laid for us by a century of devoted and visionary Jews. Their history is our legacy.
