Every twenty-fifth anniversary should include dinner, dancing to live music and smiles all around. This one also included nearly 300 guests, all members of The Conservative Synagogue (TCS), who turned out to celebrate at the gala. “This is an exciting milestone for The Conservative Synagogue as we have become a vibrant center for Jewish life in Westport,” said Rabbi Jeremy Wiederhorn. The Conservative Synagogue began in 1987 with a handful of families who met in office space on the Post Road donated by philanthropist Leo Nevas. Now its more than 425 families meet in a 21,000-square-foot building on Hillspoint Road. Programs include preschool, religious school, and a Hebrew high school program. The board of directors is co-led by Ilene Frost and Margie Labarre, both of Westport.
