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.

After nearly four decades of worship in an open sanctuary, men and women at Beth Tfiloh Synagogue - one of the nation's largest Orthodox congregations - will soon have a symbolic wall to separate them. Responding to a tilt toward tradition among a younger generation of Orthodox Jews nationwide, Rabbi Mitchell Wohlberg plans to install a mechitzah, or partition in Hebrew - which divides the sexes and has its roots in the days of Jerusalem's ancient temple. As a gesture to the congregation's many professional women - some of whom oppose a mechitzah - Wohlberg has also proposed more female participation in the otherwise male-dominated Orthodox service.

Sarah Kroiz, who decades ago helped establish a synagogue in Philadelphia before moving to Baltimore and becoming a leader in the Beth Tfiloh Congregation, died March 29 after a brief illness. She was 94. Born in Audubon, N.J., she was the daughter of a coddie vendor who moved his family of seven daughters and one son to Philadelphia. That was where, in the 1930s, Sarah Metzker met her future husband, a Russian immigrant named Samuel Kroiz. After they were married, Mr. and Mrs. Kroiz were leaders of a group that set out to raise funds for the construction of Temple Sholom in Oxford Circle, a predominantly Jewish-American neighborhood of northeast Philadelphia.
