    Gratitude - Hoda’ah Our High Holy Day season

    always concludes withheightened celebration onSimchat Torah when we sing,dance and rejoice with ourTorahs - the sacred scrollscontaining the teachings thathave guided and sustained usthroughout the centuries.

    The proverbial ‘gates’ arenever really closed until the end

    of Sukkot - so just as we still have time to approach thosewhom we may have hurt or wronged, I want to formallyacknowledge the many people who gave of their time andtalents during these High Holy Days - especially withregard to the music of the service and chanting during theTorah service.

    Deep appreciation goes to our choir members for theircommitment and many hours of preparation, under ourdedicated Choir Director, Jerry Ripley’s baton: MichelleAnctil, Grace Harris, Sheri Maltzman, Marg Shattuck,Barb Smith, Lisa Wise-Wolk, Chel Zipperstein, GeorgePetite and Kevin Posalski. To our multi-talented MichelleAnctil, who kept us awake and on our toes with thepenetrating sounds of the shofar, we are also grateful forher Torah chanting, in addition to Susan Damron, NicoleSmith and Wei Wei Xia, who chanted at CongregationEmanu El for the first time. Thank you, as well, to ourEnglish Haftarah readers Rhian Beutler on Rosh Hashanahand Nancy Sidhu on Yom Kippur.

    To my dear clergy partner, Rabbi Lindy Reznick:Mazal Tov on your first High Holy Days at CongregationEmanu El! Thank for for your inspiration, positiveenergy. openness in exploring our new Machzor togetherand willingness to engage in creative, sacred forms ofworship. It is a joy and a blessing to be teaming with youas we look forward to the new year ahead! Together, wealso look forward to an exciting B’nai Mitzvah service thismonth, as twins, Emily and Sam Ladenson will lead us inworship and chant from the Torah for the first time in thearms of our community!

    Because the High Holy Day Unetanetokef and B’roshHashanah prayers in particular, remind us of life’schallenges and uncertainties - it is all the more important,to quote the Yiddish saying ‘nor af simchas’...[we shouldonly meet up at simchas]...in that we hope you will takeadvantage of all the joyous events coming up atCongregation Emanu El that center around the reading ofour precious Torahs!

    We give thanks for a Torah of life - the way ofkindness, mercy and truth. May compassion be our source of sustenance now,as in our people’s past. May our souls withstand times of crisis, and ourhearts the inclination to do evil.May the covenant of Abraham and Sarah strengthenour will to do what is right.May the qualities of mercy and goodness, love andforgiveness flow through our lives.And let us be strong in a perilous world; let us openour hearts to the path of Torah.

  • I’d like to begin by wishing each of you a healthy and happy New Year. Rabbi Reznick, CantorBern-Vogel, Jerry Ripley and our Choir provided an inspiring and powerful beginning to our newyear, 5779.

    I’m pleased to announce that our annual Kol Nidre Appeal thus far has yielded $27,8000. If youhave not made a pledge yet, or would like to increase your existing pledge, you can do so through theTemple office. I set an ambitious goal of $30,000 this year. I’m confident that over the next severalweeks we can reach that goal through your always present dedication and generosity.

    In case you missed it below is an excerpt of my Kol Nidre address to our congregation. We read:

    “On Rosh Hashanah it is written, on Yom Kippur it is sealed. Who shall live and who shalldie.” Pre-ordination is a pretty heady concept. But is our “lot” in life also pre-ordained? And what

    power do each of us have to truly change the course of not just our lives, but the world around us? We’re taught that we cantemper judgment’s severe decree through repentance, prayer and charity. But can we also change our “lot” in life?

    In 1965, Dodger pitcher Sandy Kofax was scheduled to pitch game one in the World Series between the Dodgers and theTwins. As it often does, the game fell on Yom Kippur. Sandy Koufax’s “lot” in life was to be a professional baseball player –to lead his team to victory in the World Series – yet Sandy Koufax was a Jew. His dilemma: Whether to pitch, or not to pitch,on Yom Kippur?

    Sports Illustrated wrote, “Koufax was the kind of man boys idolized, men envied, women swooned over, and Rabbisthanked, especially when he refused to pitch game one of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur.”

    In a moment, Sandy Kofax’s “lot” in life changed and perhaps most important, Kofax in a huge way, changed the lot ofthe Jewish people in America. Sandy explained that while he wasn’t a particularly religious man, he felt he needed to set anexample for all the young Jewish children who looked up to him.

    The Jewish Week wrote: “A generation of young Jews considered him the GREATEST Jew in America. In an erawhen many Jews thought it was best to keep their Judaism quiet, Koufax’ act gave countless Jews courage to beoutwardly Jewish”

    U.S. synagogues in 1965 were dotted with Holocaust survivors, many who didn’t know a curveball from a Matzah Ball. Yet they knew and treasured the name Sandy Koufax. While American anti-Semitism existed in Koufax’s day, it was

    rather subtle. Jews faced hidden quotas in schools and were stymied in the work place. Still, there was heightened optimismabout the future of Jewish life in America. Hank Greenberg faced the same dilemma some 31 years before. Greenberg’s refusalto play for the Detroit Tigers in 1934 on Yom Kippur came under generationally very different circumstances than thoseKoufax faced. In the 1930’s, American anti-Semitism was intensified by The Great Depression, political developments abroad,and a large influx of Jews immigrating to America in the early 20th century. The courage of Sandy Koufax, profoundlychanged the “lot” of many Jewish lives that summer day inside Chavez Ravine.

    The beauty of our heritage, and the courageousness connected to it, is something that I have cherished since my youth. Forall of these reasons combined, I have maintained a strong Jewish identity throughout my life. If Sandy Koufax and HankGreenberg could change the course of American Jewish history, image the power each of us has to change our “lot” in life, andthat of the Jewish people. This can be done in many ways: By Supporting your local Shul, ensuring your children get a JewishEducation, observing Shabbat, or by making a personal commitment to be a part of the Jewish experience to ensure the healthand survival of the Jewish people both locally and around the world. I can still recall where my family sat during the HighHoly Days of my youth at our temple in Arcadia where my father was President. I remember festive Hanukkah dinners andPassover Seders held at the Foothill Jewish Temple Center and the wonderful smells that spread from the temple kitchencourtesy of resident cook Sarah Schwartz. Our heritage is filled with many great smells which trigger rich and beautifulmemories. To be a Jew means holding tight to these memories and traditions while working to honor those memories andtraditions still to come. The memories I carry with me as a Jew permeate every corner of my life. It is what drives me to be abetter husband, father, son, brother and member of the Human Community. It is what compels me to lead this congregation asyour President. I believe this Temple can be impacted, and changed, one member at a time. I have stood here before stressingthe importance of making Temple, This Temple, Our Temple a higher priority in our lives. It’s not impossible, but rather achoice.

    My hope for this New Year 5779 is one filled with hope and optimism for each of you and our beloved CongregationEmanu El, too much has been sacrificed so that we may live unobstructed Jewish Lives. The magnificent ark behind me andthe awe of this beautiful, Holy Sanctuary is far too sacred, much too important for us to not reprioritize this house of worshipin each of our daily lives. Our ability to Pray, rejoice, shed tears and embrace fellow congregants is vital to our “lot” in life asJews. May each of us always remember the importance of this and strive to honor that ideal and work toward propellingCongregation Emanu El into the future. In the years to come, may your lives be filled with a goodly and Godly portion. Mayyou have a pleasant “lot” of your choosing, and may we all rejoice in our rich and beautiful heritage.”

    Shanah Tovah!Greg Weissman

  • How lovely and uplifting these High Holy Days have been. I believe that my experience was not justdue to the leadership of Rabbi Lindy Reznick, Cantor Jennifer Bern Vogel, Jerry Ripley and the choir, butalso the participation of the rest of the congregation. When we all come together to pray, the depth of theexperience is wonderful. I find this true when the members of Sisterhood work together to promote theaims of our organization at the local, national and international level. Therefore I am looking forward toour Paid Up Membership Brunch on Sunday, October 28 at 10 a.m. here in the social hall. Members whohave paid their 2018-2019 dues are our guests, and you can pay your dues at the door. We also honor ouroctogenarian members, of which we at present have 13. If you have celebrated your 80th birthday, orknow of someone who has, we would like to add her to our “honor roll”. Please let me know.

    To someone who thinks Sisterhood’s only role is cooking and baking, I encourage you to attend our brunch on October 28to hear Julia Weinstein of the Women of Reform Judaism Pacific District, who will address “Empowering Women, BuildingCaring Communities, Advocating for Progressive Jewish Values Worldwide”. A delightful catered brunch will be served, andreservations are a must. RSVP by October 22 at [email protected] or (909)307-0400. You will be receiving emailreminders of this important event, but please don’t delay in making your reservation. And save November 18 for a miniprogram: “Creating a Caring Community for Loved Ones Facing Difficult Diagnoses”: A Workshop Presented by Jenna Fieldsof Sharsheret. Of course everyone is invited to all Sisterhood events.

    First Vice President Karyn Lehmann, myself and Past President and Gift Shop Manager Lisa Wise Wolk will be attendingthe WRJ Pacific District Convention in San Diego from October 18-21. This will be the third district convention for me, and Ilook forward to meeting with women from other communities to exchange ideas, and also to learn and pray together. LisaWise Wolk, who has served as a Pacific District Director and Officer for 10 years, will be leaving the district board. It will bea distinct pleasure to be there to honor her.

    I hope everyone received a honey greeting from Sisterhood this High Holy Days. If you did not, there are still a few left inthe office. You are invited to drop by and pick one up. The support of congregants for our honey greeting was terrific. If youneglected to put your name on the greeting list, you will have a chance again next year! Jill Weissman worked hard to realizethis lovely project, and thank you to her and those who helped her out.

    The next Sisterhood Board Meeting will take place at my house, 7124 Amberwood Lane in Highland at 6 p.m. on Sunday,October 7. The time has been moved to the evening so that members can participate in the Redlands Believe Walk. Allmembers are invited to attend, and if anyone has a suggestion for Sisterhood, we welcome your input. You could also contactme through my email address: [email protected]
