Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh
Shaarey Tphiloh celebrated its centennial in 2004, still serving Portland's Orthodox community.
Among the events, advertised by this poster, was a performance by Paul Zim, "The Jewish Music Man," and his Simcha Klezmar Band.
Zim grew up in Portland. His father, Samuel Zimelman, was the longtime cantor of Shaarey Tphiloh
While the synagogue had modernized in a number of ways over its first 100 years, it retained a sense of its history.
