On June 25, 2004 Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported, "Sixty-two years ago, Alice Siegal wore a powder-blue wool suit, a pillbox hat and a veil and married her sweetheart, Arthur, in the gymnasium of the Seattle Talmud Torah, a Jewish day school in the Central District. Tomorrow, she and her husband will celebrate their anniversary in the same brick-faced building. It looks pretty much the same, except for one thing: An Arabic verse from the Quran now hangs over the Star of David near the front door. The building now houses the Islamic School of Seattle, which doesn't bother the Siegals one bit. In fact, they're thrilled."
