Description: Photograph of congregation members from Temple Beth-El in Fort Worth, Texas at the Torah march including members of the Fort Worth Federation of Temple Youth carrying the Torahs. The Torah march was organized to carry the six handwritten Torah scrolls 7.5 miles from the synagogue at 207 W. Broadway Avenue to the new Temple Beth-El location at 4900 Briarhaven Road. In this image, those at the front of the march are pictured including several youths carrying the Torahs (covered by white terry-cloth covers decorated with a blue Jewish star) as well as several members of the color guard from Jewish War Veterans Martin Hochster Post #755. Some of the other 300 congregants who participated are visible in the background.
