In a chapel at Beth Israel Congregation, the four members of the Hoffman family -- parents Dale and Sharona, daughters Brenna and Sarah -- gathered around Rabbi Moshe Druin. A scroll lay spread out on the table before him, along with a quill pen and a jar of ink. The injunction to participate in the creation of a Torah is the last of the 613 mitzvot, or commandments, in Judaism. Druin, a Torah scribe, turned to 14-year-old Brenna to ask why that might be. "Why wouldn't it be honor your parents, or love God?"

Erika Brannock saw flashes of yellow and orange, and she felt as if her body was falling in slow motion when the first of two homemade bombs at the Boston Marathon exploded inches away from where she stood near the finish line. She heard people crying and screaming. "I thought I was going to die, and I had this conversation with God in my head, and I said, 'I am not ready to go yet,'" Brannock, a 29-year-old Towson preschool teacher, said Monday. After 50 days at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Brannock became the last of the bombing victims to be discharged.

Enter the Beth Israel congregation's Owings Mills synagogue, and behold the lobby. Behold a ceiling of sprinkler heads, I-beams and naked bulbs. A floor of bare concrete. Walls of unfinished Sheetrock."Our congregation accepts this," says Chaya Vidal, Beth Israel's executive director. "They walk through this area, like the desert, to get to the promised land."On that note, Vidal leaves the barren expanse for a sanctuary that feels fresh, bright and contemporary. In more ways than one, a transition is taking place: As Beth Israel settles into a new home in a growing Jewish community, the Conservative congregation is gradually turning a former factory into a house of worship.

ISTANBUL, Turkey - Simultaneous car bombs tore into two crowded synagogues during Shabbat prayers yesterday morning, killing at least 20 people and laying waste to neighborhoods where Jews have lived easily for generations among Turkey's Muslim majority. More than 250 people were injured, many critically, officials said. The Turkish government quickly blamed "international terrorists" for the devastating attack, the latest in a string of bombings of civilian targets in Muslim countries.

BOSTON - One practiced plastic surgery in upscale Andover. The others were affiliated with two renowned Harvard teaching hospitals. Each, authorities say, ended his career as a healer in a burst of deadly violence. Within 48 hours this week, three Boston-area physicians have appeared in court facing murder charges, a coincidence that is prompting some local doctors to ponder their special responsibility to remain gentle under pressure. On Wednesday, Dr. James Kartell of Andover received a five- to eight-year prison term for shooting his wife's estranged lover to death inside the Methuen hospital where Kartell had long practiced.
