SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Despite the issues in much of downtown, the Silver Hawks did have power and light all day and played their game Friday night against Fort Wayne.
Before the game, there was a special ceremony, recognizing the stadium's synagogue, which is now the Silver Hawks team store.
The 113-year-old Sons of Israel Synagogue is the oldest in the region, and is now a national landmark.
“I think it reminds generation after generation that there is a place where spirit still lives. People were married here, people died here, they started new lives, new marriages. There was a lot that happened here, and continues to happen here,” said team owner Andrew Berlin.
While the stadium had full power despite the outage, the synagogue did not, as it was on a different grid It was powered by a generator.
