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.

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.

On a typical summer Sunday, the doors of Temple Oheb Shalom are locked tight. With observances of the Jewish Sabbath taking place on Friday night and Saturday and religious school out until fall, the Park Heights Avenue building sits empty. Not yesterday. Hundreds of congregants of a different faith poured into the sanctuary, bringing along their love of God, their upbeat music and their fervent prayer to the otherwise quiet house of worship. A fire July 1 damaged the historic Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Upton and left its flock with no place to come together.
