Dr. Arvid Temple
His love of Judaism rubbed off on his son, Samuel, who became a rabbi. Arvid also enjoyed farming, gardening and working with wood. His love of gardening was charity-driven; the produce from Arvid and Lisbet's large garden was delivered to a food pantry every two weeks, a tradition that Lisbet has continued.
Giving was very important to Arvid. He and his wife were members of JUF's prestigious Silver Circle, and decided together that when he passed, a gift would be made to JUF. Arvid died on July 12, 2007 at the age of 89. He is warmly remembered by his wife Lisbet, son Samuel, daughter-in-law Rifka, and his five grandchildren.
