During my many years at the Lower Merion Synagogue, it has been both a joy and privilege to welcome and grow close to Jews of every social background and national origin. The rich diversity of the many wonderful people, who have passed through our community during my tenure, has served to focus us all upon the wondrous fulfillment which the practice of ahavas yisroel brings to each and every member of Klal Yisroel. At L.M.S. it is not a rare occurrence to see Sephardim Tahorim, products of Litvishe Yeshivos as well as scions of Chassidic Dynasties davening side by side.
At L.M.S. we have been fortunate to witness an Iranian bar mitzvah chanting the Tefillos lovingly taught him by a Syrian Jew. Professors study Talmud with Bnei Torah, and lawyers and doctors learn Daf Hayomi with members of the stock exchange. At L.M.S. one is truly exposed to Torah and Halacha as the sacred bond which makes Klal Yisroel an indivisible nation
