The Sally and Harold Goldberg Music Fund was established in memory of Harold Goldberg z”l, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, who loved all music and reveled in the traditional melodies and tunes sang at the BT morning minyan.
When asked about his life, Sally Goldberg, Harold’s loving wife of 62 years, recalled her late husband being happiest at Beth Tfiloh. Harold, a self-proclaimed “minyanaire,” had a special appreciation for music and Judaism. “He loved music of all kinds, especially military music,” Sally said. His daily routine included putting on Tefillin and praying from the cherished siddur he kept with him at all times—and which the family continues to use every Kabbalat Shabbat.
Beth Tfiloh is like a second home to the Goldbergs. Living just down the street since the synagogue’s move to Old Court Road in 1965, Harold and Sally were active members of the shul. They enjoyed a lively social scene with their friends through the Couples Club. Harold supported the BT Brotherhood and Sally is a past president of the BT Sisterhood. Harold worked 50 years as a dentist and met many wonderful patients through his work, many of whom became good friends.
Their children, Jody, Bruce and Wendy attended BT Hebrew School, and celebrated their Bat/Bar Mitzvahs and ultimately their weddings at BT. Harold was always proud of his family and their accomplishments. He was a loving Grandpa or “Pampa,” as he was called, and considered each grandchild a true blessing. He was so thankful to God for all seven of them. They were his “riches;” and his five great-grandchildren were a special bonus.
Harold was so proud that his grandchildren and great-grandchildren grew up in strong Jewish homes with Jewish values and that they received, and continue to receive, a Jewish education.
