Members of Beth Jacob Congregation are celebrating their last Shabbat service today. Once the only Modern Orthodox community on Park Heights Avenue, Beth Jacob's membership has now dwindled to about 500, with about 125 regularly attending Saturday morning worship services. And with the majority of its members over 75, Beth Jacob had stopped operating its religious school because there weren't enough children. So come next week, the 69-year-old congregation will be welcomed into its new spiritual home at Beth Tfiloh Congregation in Pikesville - joining other synagogues that in recent years have shifted from Northwest Baltimore into the nearby suburbs.

Bessie Y. Fishman, a retired Baltimore businesswoman who was a longtime active member of Beth Tfiloh Congregation, died in her sleep July 28 at her Stevenson Village home. She had celebrated her 100th birthday last month. Bessie Yaniger, the daughter of Russian immigrant parents, was born and raised in East Baltimore near Patterson Park, above her family's grocery store. After graduating from Eastern High School in 1926, she worked as a bookkeeper at Gelfand Mayonnaise Co. In 1932, she married Albert H. Fishman, owner of L. Fishman and Son. The business, which had been established in 1919, supplied buttons and thread - including the thread used on McCormick & Co. tea bags - to Baltimore's then-burgeoning garment industry.
