A Hampton temple celebrates its centennial

Hampton, Va. - At 100 years, a temple in Hampton is celebrating its centennial with its community of friends.

Rodef Sholom Temple was formed back in 1913. Located on Whealton Road, the temple held services and other events all weekend to celebrate. This morning, that included a special video presentation. More than 100 members were interviewed for the video; sharing their memories of the temple, how it's changed and what their hopes are for its future.

They also dug up two time capsules this morning. One was from 1921, the other from 1957. Now they're creating a new time capsule for future generations.
