Cleveland - Alan - Temple on the Heights
Joyce drives, Donna's in the front seat hanging out the window looking, while I'm in the back w/my camera. Some of these photos may be repeats.
Get-together w/Alan Schonberg who used to work with my dad at Majestic before going on to create his own recruiting firm, Management Recruiters International, and write two successful books - Headhunters Confidential and 169 Ways to Score Points w/your boss.
When I phoned Alan after I got home from Cleveland, I got his answering machine. My god, I said to myself, this is one happy man! In only 20 seconds or so, his voice made me feel that I was important and this vibrant life-loving man would soon get back to me.
Okay, let's visit Heights Temple again.
This is the former B'nai Jeshurun,Temple on the Heights.Please don't be shocked when I tell you I hated every single minute of Sunday School and services on the High Holy Days. I've always said that Heights Temple traumatized me and I've never set foot in a synagogue since then, except for an occasional bar or bat mitzvah.
A row of antique shops sits across the street. We stopped in the Starbux at the corner and the girls ordered drinks while I got a plastic cup of ice water, my alltime favorite drink.
Now, we're gonna change drivers. Donna and I will go with Cousin Linda and visit the dead relatives. It's been so long all the tears are used up. Let's see who resides at Zion Cemetery.
Next blog post please.
