Heshvan/Kislev 5770 November 2009

Dear Friends, The Rabbi Search Committee, under the direction of Mike Rudolph, is doing an excellent job gathering information about the needs of the congregation. I would also like to compliment those of you who have come to voice your opinion. This is a very good beginning to a difficult task. Recently, in conversation with one of our members, I realized that there is an important component of this process which may not have been considered. While you are interviewing perspective candidates, each candidate will be interviewing you. There are many pluses and minuses to the position. If a rabbi is looking for a major population with many Jewish families and a large synagogue, they may not be interested in Temple Beth El. Conversely, many candidates will be seeking a medium sized population and this size congregation. These are factors over which the synagogue has no control. However, what the community does have control of is what kind of community Temple Beth El is. Many of the rabbis will be looking primarily at the congregation itself. The Reconstructionist movement places a high emphasis on the quality of the community. The rabbis want to work with the congregation, not be the congregation. They are looking for a setting in which the members are very involved and eager to work with the spiritual leader. Along with asking what qualities Temple Beth El is looking for in a rabbi, our community should be asking what qualities Temple Beth El will offer to a new rabbi. Although monetary compensation and benefits are certainly a consideration, people do not become rabbis to become wealthy. We are drawn to the rabbinate because we have a strong attachment to Judaism and desire to teach and serve a community. One of the central questions for a candidate is how much is the congregation willing to grow with the rabbi? How active are the members? How easy will it be to work with the board and axillary organizations. If this congregation is looking for "super-rabbi," the questions posed to the candidate will indicate those expectations. If you have reasonable goals, this will also be conveyed in the interviewing process. The candidate will also want to know how willing people are to step up and assume responsibility, to know that he or she will not be alone in his or her work. This is an area that worries me. Over the years, volunterism has waned in the United States. To a large degree, although we are larger than when I came twenty-two years ago, it seems that less people are willing to accept the responsibility of making Temple Beth El a vibrant synagogue. My point is that while you are looking for the best rabbi for Temple Beth El, you should also be working on making this community an attractive opportunity for the candidate. Shalom uv'racha,

Rabbi David B. Kaplan

From Our Men's Club President: By the time you read this article, the 10th Annual Scott Mackler 5K Run/Walk will have occurred. Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time, money and physical energy to support this fundraising event. Since its inception in 1999, over 1 million dollars have been raised by over 4,000 participants; funds go to the Scott A. Mackler, MD, PhD Assistive Technology Fund, making sure every ALS patient can afford the expensive technology needed to lead a productive life. As was aptly described on the ALS web site and in event email literature, The Scott Mackler Assistive Technology Fund provides essential but expensive assistive technology to ALS patients who cannot afford it. Because of this program and your donations through events such as the Scott Mackler 5K Run/Walk, there has never been an ALS patient in the greater Philadelphia area that has gone without communicative technology for want of money. To learn more about The Scott Mackler Assistive Technology Fund, surf the w e b t o t h i s a d d r e s s : http://www.alsphiladelphia.org/NetComm unity/Page.aspx?pid=248 . Please read on for highlights of speakers for the next few months of Men's Club Breakfast events! November 8: Kevin Lawrence, of Peregrine Coffee, a Philadelphia-based business specializing in supremely fresh, artisan-roasted, single-origin beans. Please come hear Mr. Lawrence guide you coffee lovers through the characteristics of each cup of joe, answering questions and giving a glimpse into the intricacies of the roasting process along the way. He will be bringing samples of coffee for tasting! December 13: Jack Markell, Governor of the state of Delaware ­ Everyone come out to meet our own Governor Markell! January 10: Richard J. Geisenberger, Delaware Assistant Secretary of State and Director of Corporations ­ Come to hear about "What Does a Department of State Do

Anyway?" where he will discuss how his office's work fits in with Governor Markell's administration priorities. We hope to see you at one or more of these breakfast programs. Come and enjoy a delicious breakfast with friends and be informed by our guest speakers. For current events and announcements, please visit the Men's Club page on the Temple Beth El web site.

CONFIRMATION CLASS SERVICE Friday, November 6

SCHOOL

From Mrs. Romao's Hai Class The Hai class looked at some text relating to Sukkot Shalom - In our prayers, the sukkah is a symbol of peace. The special Hashkiveinu prayer that is said in the Friday night service asks G-d to shelter us in peace. "Praised are You, G-d, Who spreads a shelter of peace (sukkat shalom) over us, over all G-d's people Israel, and over Jerusalem. "Bemidbar Rabbah 19:27 says: "Seak peace in your own place and pursue it in other places." Following are some responses, from our insightful Hai students, to the question: "What can we learn from this verse to help us think about peace?" "The best way is to close your eyes and think of good things" - Joshua Miller "We must come together with people in the world because you can't make peace if you exclude someone" - Rebecca Wortmann "There will be a time when all human kind will be accepted. The people of Israel will at some point live in peace with it's surrounding countries and the world will be happy." - Mara Tazartus "Bring out the Torah!" - Nathan Widom "Don't start fights - Try to stop fights when you see them" - Jared Huddleston "When you include everyone peace happens, not when you exclude people" - Morgan Walsh

COFFEE LECTURE AND TASTINGS!!!!

Peregrine Coffee is a Philadelphia-based coffee roaster specializing in supremely fresh, artisan-roasted, single-origin beans. Participants in Peregrine Coffee's tasting at Temple Beth-El will get a sample of what single-origin coffee is all about, tasting a variety of distinct brews from Africa, Central and South America and Southeast Asia. Roaster Kevin Lawrence will guide coffee lovers through the characteristics of each cup of joe, answering questions and giving a glimpse into the intricacies of the roasting process along the way. They've been seen in Daily Candy, 6-ABC News, Good Morning America Now, The Northeast Times, The Philadelphia Daily News, Bride's Magazine, Imbibe Magazine, Philadelphia Style and more. Men's Club has several fundraising activities to support Temple Beth El. Thanks for all of your support of these fundraisers:

Wilmington Blue Rocks Concession Stand fundraiser (held during the summer baseball season) -- This year was quite successful with funds resulting from a portion of the sales at the Soft-serve ice cream stand and popcorn stand plus tips topping $3,000! · Men's Club Breakfast ­ Thanks to the efforts of our Breakfast Committee, Marty Schwartz, Howard Friedman, Dave and Ellen Schonbach, Chris Shelton, Dan Halbert, Wayne and Beverly Geller, James Baker, Joseph Giannotti and Barry Berger, a fine array of hot and cold food items are offered each month at this event. Come out to hear an engaging speaker arranged by Izak Bahar, Mike Cook and Marc Sheffler, and meet old friends and make new ones! · Recycle Old Cell Phones and Printer Ink Cartridges ­ We recycle old cell phones and printer ink cartridges for funds. Please place these contributed items in the designated box in the coat room. Please limit contributions to only cell phones and printer cartridges. New Fundraiser ­ Equal Exchange Fairly Traded Coffee and Chocolate ­ Packages of coffee and bars of chocolate will be offered at Men's Club Breakfast events. Proceeds benefit small farmers in the world and Temple Beth El (40% of purchase price goes to TBE). Products being offered are package-certified kosher. Flavors of coffee currently available are as follows: Regular ­ Organic French Roast, Organic Ethiopian Full City blend; Decaffeinated ­ Colombian, and Hazelnut Crème. We also have in stock 3.5 ounce bars of Organic Milk Chocolate with Hint of Hazelnut. Other flavors of chocolate and coffee are available by special order; order forms will be available on the display table. New Fundraiser ­ Attention Gardeners ­ Rarely Offered Japanese Morning Glory Seeds ­ For a nominal contribution to TBE, I am making available many strains of Japanese Morning Glory seeds from my own personal collection. Popular strains that will make flowers of 5 to 6 inches in diameter, with leaves often displaying variegated traits, brought delight to several TBE gardeners who grew them this year in their gardens. Photos of the available strains may be seen at the fundraiser table where the coffee and chocolate will be offered at Men's Club Breakfasts. Alternatively, photos may be seen online at this web address: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gerris2/sets/72157612026554230/ . I am happy to provide help in growing these fabulous flowering vines.

Fifteenth Annual Jewish Women's Gathering

Monday, November 23, 2009

Featuring Joanne Caras, author of "The Survivor's Cookbook" To be held at the Siegel JCC 5:30 p.m. - Registration & Organization Information 6:00 p.m. - Dinner, followed by Program

In 2005, Ms. Caras visited the Carmei Ha'ir soup kitchen in Jerusalem. She was so impressed that she came home determined to raise money to support them. Carmei Ha'ir serves over 500 meals each day to poor and hungry Israelis. For two years, the Caras family worked tirelessly to collect recipes and stories from Holocaust survivors all over the world. Joanne then compiled them into an unforgettable "Holocaust Survivors Cookbook". Proceeds from every book sold benefit Carmei Ha'ir. To date, the Caras family has raised over $400,000 in total for Jewish charities. Every cookbook sold creates three mitzvot: *It raises money for Jewish charities *It helps to support Carmei Ha'ir in Israel *It honors survivors and keeps their stories alive for generations to come. Ms. Caras will speak about how the cookbook was created, including about her time at Carmei Ha'ir, and relate some of the most moving and miraculous stories that appear in the book. "The Survivor's Cookbook" will be available for advance purchase at the Siegel JCC beginning on October 1, and can be signed by Ms. Caras the night of the event.
