Westport in Washington

Preschooler Alexis Shukovsky proudly holds the sign her class made for Rabbi Weiderhorn.

When Rabbi Jeremy Wiederhorn stepped up to the podium in the U.S. Capitol last week, his fans at the The Conservative Synagogue in Westport painted a sign – held up for the camera by preschooler Alexis Shukovsky – to let him know just how proud they felt. Wiederhorn served as guest chaplain in the U.S. House, at the invitation of Rep. Jim Himes, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress.
