Salem temple considering merger

Building for sale amid falling membership


Cheatham said there is no timeline and no pressure to reach a decision quickly.

Rabbi Mark Newton and two other part-time clergy, Cantor Michelle Rubinstein and rabbinical intern David Finkelstein, are under contract through May. Services and programs will continue as usual.

The brick temple building is listed at $1.5 million through the Drumlin Group. On more than a half-acre, it has two chapels, including a main sanctuary that seats 500, two kitchens, a large function facility and a preschool.
