Bob Skloot was and still is a member of Beth Israel Center Synagogue in Madison, WI. In 1983, he was instrumental in convincing his congregation to partner with three other faith organizations–the Community of John XXIII, Covenant Presbyterian Church and Bethany United Methodist Church–to sponsor the “Gonzalez” family in sanctuary. Bob credits Rabbi Charles Feinberg with being the engine behind Beth Israel’s commitment for which they raised money, collected clothing and other household goods, and organized gatherings where the “Gonzalez” couple could tell their story.
