Last summer, Shelly Welfeld’s mother passed away.
She sought solace in morning prayers at Beit Chaverim synagogue. Then she’d walk down the Post Road, along Riverside Avenue and downtown.
Along the way, Shelly noticed various objects that looked like letters. She took photos — and soon had enough to complete the alphabet.
Out of Shelly’s mourning came a creative and gorgeous collage:
It’s so beautiful, I asked Shelly to share it here.
And so much fun, we came up with a great contest idea.
“06880” readers: Identify the locations for all 26 “letters.” The first correct answer wins a $50 gift certificate, generously donated by The ‘Port restaurant. (HINT: One of the images above comes from the National Hall building.)
Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is noon on Wednesday, May 23. If no one gets all 26, the person with the most correct answers wins. The decision of the judges (Shelly and I) is final.
Get to work, “06880” readers. The answers are right there, under — and above — your noses.
