Rabbi Cantor's Corner

Have you ever seen God? Seems like a funny question. As far back as I can remember as a child, I was always taught by my parents and teachers that God is invisible. God doesn't look like a person, and it is impossible to go out and see God. Now as an adult, I think my parents and those teachers might have been wrong. You see, this past Shabbat right here at Temple Israel I saw God! I wasn't expecting it. In fact, I was able to see God in a way that I had never before had a chance to experience. Let me tell you a bit more about it. This past Shabbat, Nathan came to shul, for the very first time with his grandparents. Nathan is just about three years old. As Nathan walked into the building he announced to his grandparents and older brother that he was here to see God! All throughout services I watched Nathan. (After all, his grandma had filled me in on their conversation.) He sat beautifully during services, smiling, and swaying gently to all the music. When we were finished I went over to him and asked what he thought about his first trip to the synagogue. Nathan, then shared with me that he had seen God right here, at Temple Israel, as Shabbat had begun. Being curious, I asked Nathan what God was doing ­ and he explained that God was sitting in an office. And since I had never thought of God as Divine Administrator, I asked Nathan what God was doing in that office ­ and his answer was simply perfect. "He is helping people!" Nathan saw God this past Shabbat, because he came to the synagogue looking for God! If we all took just a little bit of time from our busy lives, and actively went out seeking an encounter with the Divine we would be surprised at how often we can catch a glimpse of God ­ and perhaps even have a glimpse into the Divine Office where each of us can experience God's helping hand.

A Message from your President

As I sit looking out of the windows of my office I see the deep greenery and thick foliage of my back yard. I can see the shimmer of the heat rising from the cement surrounding our pool, even though it is early in the evening. I can hear the chirping of the birds and the Dan Ruda keening noise of the cicadas. I sit quietly taking it in, and it is hard to imagine that another summer has past. The end of a season, like most endings, is two-fold. That is because the end of one thing is usually the beginning of another. And so, I will miss the opportunity to spend lazy hours lounging by the pool. I will be sad not to have the extra time that summer vacation provides to spend with my children while they are out of school. I will soon miss the extended hours of daylight that let me do things outdoors until 9:00pm or later. There are many more things that I could list. But soon I will be able to enjoy other things: like the cool crispness of the morning air, when I walk down the driveway to get the newspaper; the crashing sound made by shoulder pads, as players collide at a Panther's game and the beautiful colors of the trees in the mountains of North Carolina. The other day I was reading some of the traffic on the United Synagogue Presidents listserv and a particular string caught my attention. The subject line was "Bulletin Articles." For those of you who aren't familiar, the listserv is a tool offered by USCJ that allows synagogue presidents an opportunity to chat via email about subjects that come up for which we might want the wisdom of our peers. In reading through the comments, one in particular stood out and struck a chord with me. The writer imparted that our bulletin articles should speak from the heart. Our articles are one of our primary opportunities to reach out to our congregations, and so we should use them to speak, not about the problems and business dealings of our Temples, but about good things that are happening, about reasons why we should be proud to be members, or things about our Temples that touch us in a positive way. There are many things about Temple Israel that touch me in a positive way. During a recent meeting of our Board of Trustees, we engaged in an exercise where we answered the question, "Why do I want to be a board member?" Some of the answers included: developing and keeping a sense of continuity or tradition, feeling passionate about our congregation, wanting to give something back for all that we have received, sustaining a thriving conservative congregation, and setting an example for our children and others. As I read those answers I began to think, aren't these the same reasons to feel positive about our Temple? I hope that we are successful in all of those answers, and that all of you feel those same feelings toward Temple Israel. Soon the High Holidays will be here. We will come together as a community to celebrate the end of one year and the start of another. We will ask that G-d forgive us our faults and we will ask each other to accept our apologies for any transgressions we have committed toward each other. At this time we are more together as a community than at any other during the year. When we join together to experience the holidays, when we show our support for the fundraising activities that are always part of this time, when we individually and communally throw away our sins through Tashlich, we are a synagogue family. I hope that we learn to keep that notion and that we remember it throughout the year. I am proud to say that I am a member of Temple Israel. I am proud to say that I belong to this community. I ask that, if I, or any member of my family has harmed you in any way during this past year, please know it was not intentional and accept our heartfelt apologies. L'Shana Tovah, Dan Ruda

A Message from your Sisterhood President We, the women of Sisterhood, are busy planning and preparing for the coming year. I have been given the wonderful opportunity of serving as President for the next two years. It is an honor to work alongside so many caring, compassionate, intelligent, talented women who all share one heart and one purpose. The one thing that we all have in common is our love of Judaism and our desire to live Jewish lives through study, Mitzvot, and acts of loving kindness. Sisterhood is comprised of women of all ages and backgrounds. There is something for everyone within Sisterhood. You only have to take that first step. We are part of a much larger organization, Women's League for Conservative Judaism, which provides us with educational and informational support and supplies.

Job Seekers Support Group

Rosh Chodesh is known as a women's holiday. Rashi said that women may refrain from spinning, weaving, and sewing on this day each month because these are the skills that women so enthusiastically contributed to the building of the Mishkan. Why a special day for women? We're told that the women refused to relinquish their gold earrings to the men who were building the golden calf. Their reward: an extra holy day each month, free from work. Temple Israel Sisterhood, in conjunction with Temple Israel's Adult Education committee, invites women to join us in study once per month. This year, we will study Kohelet, Ecclesiastes . We will meet in the boardroom of Temple Israel on Shabbat afternoon, 1:30 PM.

Temple Israel Book Club

Tuesday, September 16, 7:30 p.m. Temple Israel People of the Book By Geraldine Brooks

The global journey of the Sarajevo Haggadah as imagined in People of the Book is the subject of Temple Israel Book Club's next selection. The Sarajevo Haggadah, one of the earliest Jewish religious volumes to be illuminated with images, survived centuries of purges and wars thanks to people of all faiths who risked their lives to safeguard it. "Geraldine Brooks, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of March, has turned the intriguing but sparely detailed history of this precious volume into an emotionally rich, thrilling fictionalization that retraces its turbulent journey....... A complex love story, thrilling mystery, vivid history lesson and celebration of the enduring power of ideas, People of the Book will surely be hailed as one of the best of 2008" Critics' accolades such as these, enthusiastic, positive comments from readers, and its position as number one on Hadassah's list of top ten Jewish best sellers, made Temple Israel Book Club members overwhelmingly choose People of the Book as its next selection. The book is available at the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library, the public library, on line and at local book stores for under $25. Get your copy now for good summer reading and attend the Temple Israel Book Club's September 16 meeting to complete your literary experience! Temple Israel Book Club meetings are open to the entire community, even those who haven't read the book!

Sunday, October 5 10:30am (Rain or Shine) 1801 Statesville Avenue

The Zohar states that "...That which constitutes a real person is the soul, the rest being only garments which cover the inner essence. When people depart this earth, they put off their outer coverings and continue to live by virtue of the soul, which is immortal." On Sunday, October 5, hundreds of Charlotte Jews will make their annual pilgrimage to the Charlotte Hebrew Cemetery in order to memorialize Charlotte's departed Jewish souls at the Cemetery Association's Annual Meeting and Memorial Service. The men, women and children buried at Charlotte's Hebrew Cemetery were the folks who shaped our unique community. They were the visionaries who planned for, created and contributed to the wonderful Jewish community that we all enjoy today. We are a people who remembers and, thus, we cannot forget our debt to all those who preceded us in eternal life as each one of them accounts for our miraculous survival as a people. Their precious souls are to be celebrated by each one of us enjoying the world they left behind. One way you can participate in that celebration is by attending the annual Memorial Service this year. If you

TI Family Sukkot Concert: "Singin' Sukkot with Susan and Patti!"

On Sunday, October 19, 2008, Temple Israel is proud to present Susan Shane-Linder in a Family Sukkot Concert. The Rabbis will be BBQ'ing lunch starting at 12 noon, and the outside concert will begin at 12:30. Make sure to bring your chairs, and blankets ­ but don't expect to do too much sitting, as we will dance the afternoon away! "SINGIN' WITH SUSAN" songs are fun and feelgood kind of music. They have an upbeat, rock and roll rhythm. The songs have clear, easy to understand lyrics enable everyone to join in and sing along. As you listen, you'll understand why the enthusiastic style and choice of material appeals to children and adults of all ages. These songs "Bring out the kid in all of us!" Joining Susan in this performance is our own Miss Patti Torcellini Hartman, who has been enhancing our Family Shabbat services for several years now with her ru'ach and her musicianship. By coincidence, she is an old friend of Ms. Shane-Linder's, and both ladies are thrilled to be able to perform together again.

B'nai Mitzvah Mavens

Temple Israel is proud to present the very latest in Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutoring: B'NAI MITZVAH MAVENS! This B'nai Mitzvah tutoring program is tailored to meet individual needs and learning styles of our Bar/Bat Mitzvah students. Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation has traditionally consisted of 12 months of semi-private and private tutoring sessions that help students hone the advanced skills of Haftarah and Torah trope as well as preparing the B'nai Mitzvah candidate with the necessary skills to lead services with poise and confidence. In order to enhance the Bar/Bat Mitzvah process, Temple Israel now provides four months of small group tutoring, with master teachers, Barbara Feld and Barbara Ezring. Our students then move on to working with Cantor Elias Roochvarg to tackle the advanced skills of chanting trope. In addition, our students prepare for their D'var Torah with Rabbi Ezring or Rabbi Cantor several months before their special day. By working together in small groups, students have the benefit of peer-learning. Students help other students, and as a group they progress through the entire Shabbat service. With so many wonderful teachers who have different teaching styles, the year leading up to Bar or Bat Mitzvah is one of excitement, and learning opportunities at every turn! B'nai Mitzvah Mavens, which was initiated in the Fall of 2007, has been a very successful program. At Temple Israel we understand that each child deserves to feel positive, confident and excited about their B'nai Mitzvah. The success of our new program is that each student feels like a Maven! For more information, please contact the Cantor's Office at 704-362-2796.
