Historians say that if you know where you’ve come from, you can appreciate where you are now and understand where you might go in the future.   Beth Israel’s archives include a collection of archival scrapbooks.   These scrapbooks, shelved amidst the library’s collections, preserve the history of Beth Israel, The Jewish Community of Sun City Center.

The stories of our Temple community begin with, what else, Book 1, “In the Beginning” – Bereshit – 1975-1982, lovingly compiled by Selma Pellegrino.  Through her efforts both as Historian and Shalom News Editor, there are 24 books in all, with newspaper clippings, letters, newsletters, photos, and so on.   On the 25th Anniversary of Beth Israel’s groundbreaking for its’ permanent home,  Cyrille Cobe prepared a brief synthesis of how the temple community began and what led to the groundbreaking on March,1987.
