Eighty pounds of chicken. Fifty pounds of beef. One hundred pounds of pasta. Those are a few of the ingredients layered into large rectangle tins Sunday afternoon during a marathon casserole-building frenzy. Dubbed Holy Casseroley, the event drew dozens of members of Har Sinai Congregation in Owings Mills and their friends who wanted to help a group of people most will never meet. The volunteers assembled 1,250 casseroles, enough to feed visitors to the soup kitchen at Paul's Place in Washington Village/Pigtown for a week.

The parents who started Yeshivat Rambam 20 years ago knew what they wanted for their children: a Modern Orthodox day school philosophically in the middle of the Jewish spectrum. Many of them were newcomers to Baltimore; several were doctors who had taken jobs here and who had decided to settle in Park Heights or Pikesville and raise families there. When they looked around for Jewish schools, they saw extremes — on the one hand, Orthodox institutions that made it difficult to combine aspects of secular and religious life, and on the other hand, non-Orthodox schools that provided a good education but presented too many conflicts (such as birthday parties on the Sabbath)

Baltimore's historic Har Sinai congregation is facing a $4 million choice: Take the money and follow its members to the suburbs or stay put in its domed temple on Park Heights Avenue.Leaders of the nation's oldest Reform congregation expect that the temple will accept an offer for its property and leave Baltimore. If it does, Har Sinai will continue a movement to the suburbs among Baltimore's Reform and Conservative Jews that began nearly a half-century ago."All available data points to the fact that the young people we need to attract are moving out of our area," said David Flyer, president of the congregation of about 630 families.

A Baltimore County judge ruled yesterday that prosecutors will be able to present at trial statements that a former University of Maryland, Baltimore County student made to police when he confessed to beating a woman to death after their first date and described in gruesome detail how he disfigured her body to prevent her from being identified. Lawyers for John C. Gaumer, 23, had asked the judge to suppress the statements, arguing that they should be considered involuntary, in part because they were obtained during the time that police detained Gaumer between Feb. 7 and Feb. 8 before charging him with a crime.
