The Norbel School, a private school for learning disabled children, has bid $500,000 to buy the closed Elkridge Elementary School site, school director Margaret R. Gold said. The bid signals the school's plan to leave its two-story space at the Temple Oheb Shalom synagogue in the 7300 block of Park Heights Ave., where it has been housed since its start in a single room 20 years ago. The school, which features small classes, intensive supervision and a "rational skills" curriculum, is bursting at the seams.

From the day it opened in 1960, Temple Oheb Shalom was considered one of the most architecturally significant religious structures in Baltimore.It was the only building in central Maryland designed in part by Walter Gropius, a world-renowned master of modern architecture, and it represented a new model for worship in reform Judaism.Tomorrow at 11 a.m., the congregation will break ground for a $3 million expansion and modernization project that is designed to prepare the building for another 40 years of service.

When Melvin Luterman is chanting Hebrew prayers, his voice has the power and passion of a great Italian tenor's. For 35 years, it has penetrated the hearts of congregants at Temple Oheb Shalom, a Baltimore synagogue rich in tradition that helped lay the foundation of Reform Judaism in the United States. With his retirement this week, the 65-year-old dean of Baltimore's cantors joins a figurative choir of classically trained singers stepping down from the pulpits of Reform congregations around the country.
