Synagogue Bans High Holiday Auctions in Wake of Violence

Lawrence – One orthodox congregation is not taking any chances with its traditional High Holiday auction this year, they have decided to take the auction out of the sanctuary and make it social. Temple Beis Hagaiva board members unanimously agreed to scrap the auction after two members “nearly killed” each other last year when they entered a bidding war for opening the Ark during the Yom Kippur Neilah service.
