Karen & Matthew Fine

We have been shaped and inspired by our very different Jewish experiences. Matthew attributes his Hebraic passion to his families’ five generations at Ohef Sholom Temple. His grandparents, Louis and Minnie Fine’s consistent messages of Jewish family values have resonated deeply for him. I was unfamiliar with Jewish practices until I met Matthew, and have grown at my own pace inside Judaism. I now stand proudly as a woman ready and able to embrace life as a Jew. Together with our children, we are both proud to make a gift to help secure the future of Ohef Sholom Temple and of reform Judaism in Tidewater.
