From the very young to the very old, they marched. For six miles, they carried the 10 tallit-covered Torahs from their old home, Temple Beth Sholom in Haddon Heights, to the new synagogue, Temple Beth Sholom at Cropwell and Kresson Roads in Cherry Hill. Spectators along the rainy procession route cheered as the marchers passed. As they approached the spectacular light stone facade of the synagogue, a huge crowd that had gathered there gave thunderous applause while the Klezmer Band from Cherry Hill provided lively music.

The sanctuary is calm at Temple Beth Sholom. As sunlight seeps intermittently through the translucent ceiling, only the sweeping clouds overhead disturb the tranquillity. Toward the back of the room sits Robert Weil, soaking it all in. A diminutive man in a loose-fitting light-blue blazer and baggy slacks, Weil calmly recalls the three months he spent at Dachau in 1939, when, as a young man, he saw the Nazis slaughter vibrant men - including his father - before his eyes. Weil lost everything there: his parents, his siblings and his faith.

Hugs, kisses and mazel tovs were exchanged as the 80-year-old Lewis walked through the crowd. "I wouldn't miss this for the world," one member said as she greeted Lewis.

Her work has included two years as congregation president, service on the board of trustees, and membership on the long-range-planning committee from the time the congregation thought about relocating until the move to the current location on Kresson Road in Cherry Hill was made in 1989.

But don't expect to see the Trinity Players of Mullica Hill perform Jesus Christ Superstar next week in the parking lot of their home, Trinity United Methodist Church, or even in the sanctuary, because "we won't be there," said Chris Laning, their director.
