A MESSAGE FROM RABBI DANIEL STEIN

Jewish tradition designed the Passover Seder to engage all of our senses at the most basic level. The foods we eat—bitter herbs, salt water, sweet charoset, savory meats—trigger the core of our taste buds. We hear familiar songs, watch as the middle matzah is broken and wine glasses and shank bones are lifted. And we touch—as we spill ten drops from our glasses, we commiserate with the pain felt by the Egyptians as they endured the ten plagues. This ritual is based on a famous legend recorded in the Talmud: When the Egyptians were drowning in the Red Sea, the Angels wanted to sing a song in praise of God’s triumph. God, though, was not interested in their song and rebuked them. “My handiwork is dying,” God said, “and you want to praise me?!” In response to this legend, the Talmud records that Rabbi Yose ben Hanina said: “Even if He will not rejoice, He allows others to.” This tale especially resonates with me this year; I am writing this column just a few days after the earthquakes and tsunami that struck Japan. Today, nuclear plants continue to fail in the North of the country, and there is a sense of uncertainty about how the crisis will resolve. I know that when we sit down to our Passover Seder, Japan will just be beginning to pull itself out of this crisis. As I watched the remarkable image of the water traveling across fields, carrying boats and buildings, and making towns disappear, I was reminded of the story of the Exodus. Before the waters of the Red Sea crashed down on the Egyptians, it stood for the Israelites as a “wall, to their right and left.” This Passover we also will likely discuss the continuing drama in the Middle East. We will talk not just of Pharos, but also of modern dictators and despots. We will pray for American soldiers, deployed now on three different fronts. Our Passover celebration of freedom this year will be colored by the very real fears of a rapidly changing world. We know that God is not rejoicing—how can we celebrate?

Jewish ritual understands these fears. It teaches us that the first step towards genuine joy is insuring for the needs in all of the community. Our celebrations take place in the presence of friends, and, if they are suffering, we cannot experience true joy. At Passover, we give maot chitin—literally, wheat money, to insure that all in our community can celebrate the holiday. In this month’s bulletin, you will notice that we are collecting maot chitin as part of the chametz-selling process. I also wanted to suggest a few charities that might be of interest this season. •  The Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley’s designated fund for Japan 100% of funds go directly to relief efforts in Japan • The Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief The JCDF is perhaps the most collaborative organization in the Jewish world. In addition to relief work in Japan, the JCDF remains actively involved in Haiti and is prepared to handle disasters as they emerge. • The JWB Jewish Chaplain’s Council In addition to endorsing Jewish chaplains, the Jewish Chaplain’s Council provides for the religious needs of Jewish military personnel. This includes planning Passover Seders for Jewish troops deployed abroad and providing Kosher for Passover k-rations. If you would like more information on the charities above, please let me know. Hopefully, the mitzvah of providing for those in need this Passover season will serve as a corrective to the complicated emotions many of us are feeling this year. Giving, we are taught, is the first step towards achieving the true joy in our holidays. Dena and I wish you all a joyful and kosher holiday. As I mentioned last month, there is still space at our table for the first Seder, and we hope to see many of you for the second Seder at Bnai Abraham. Best Wishes for a chag kasher v’sameach,

Rabbi Daniel Stein

To all my friends at Bnai Abraham Synagogue who were so generous with their donations in honor of my special birthday, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! You continue to honor me with your kindnesses and friendship. And a special “thank you” to Rabbi Stein, whose words touched me and my family so deeply.

The Ritual Corner

THE POWER OF ONE (continued from last month)

Why did the Rabbi accept the testimony of one man when so many testified against him? Why did the Rabbi keep the official who was accused of being lazy and negligent in his post? The Rabbi replied, “When Isaac was on the alter itself and Abraham had the knife in his hand, did not Abraham listen to an angel who came to stay his hand? And God found this just though it went against God’s original direct command.” The lesson, according to the Rabbi, is that to do a man harm, a decision from high authority is required. To keep him from harm, a word from one insignificant person shall be enough. The principle is reflected in the American jury system as well. A “guilty” verdict is not possible if a single juror refuses to agree.

You never knew kosher for Passover wine could be so fine! Kosher for Passover Wine Tasting at Blue Grillhouse and Wine Bar Sunday, April 10, 4:00 PM $18 per person RSVP and payment MUST be received by Monday, April 4th before 9:00 AM to Bnai Abraham Synagogue or Temple Covenant of Peace Email reservations to eva@evagrayzel.com at your earliest convenience Wine selection and descriptive notes will be prepared for our event by nationally recognized Christopher Cree from 56 Degree Wine Store in Bernardsville, New Jersey. In 1966 he became only the thirteenth American to have passed the demanding Master of Wine Examination. Today, there are still only 23 Americans out of a total of 235 people worldwide who has passed this most demanding wine examination since it was first given in London in 1953. His success as a wine educator can be attributed to a unique understanding of what people want to know about wine, a talent that evolved during years of working with clients of his retail shops. Christopher will detail the new trends in fine kosher wines. Come join us and taste the best Kosher4Passover wines on the market. All wines can be purchased at state stores in PA.

SISTERHOOD NEWS IT’S NOT TOO LATE! Sisterhood still wants you as a member!! Please join us in supporting the Synagogue. We have ongoing projects: Judaica Shop, Rummage Sale, Camp Scholarships, and more. And we are always looking for new ideas. We had to cancel our trip to the Flower Show due to lack of interest. Let us know what interests you, and we’ll try to make it happen. Please send your check for $20, made payable to Sisterhood Bnai Abraham , to the Synagogue at 1545 Bushkill Street, Easton, PA 18042 Thank you, Nancy Cohen Financial Secretary


A NEW FUNDRAISER FOR BNAI ABRAHAM Our next fundraiser will be a “Buy Local” campaign, which will be an extension of the arrangement that we already have with a few local businesses. We will be soliciting local small businesses to give Bnai Abraham a small percentage of the sales from Synagogue members who identify themselves as such at the time of purchase. We will list all participating merchants in the Bulletin on a tear-out card which you can carry in your wallet as a reminder. According to ‘Buy Local Philly’, three times as much money stays in the local economy when you buy goods and services from locally owned businesses instead of large chains. This campaign can definitely spread some goodwill from our Bnai community to the heart of the area business community. If you know of any business that would like to participate, please contact Judy Walker at judithwlkr@gmail.com. We will have a soliciting team armed with information and a letter from the Synagogue.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. These three words are applicable to a wide variety of things and situations Paper is a precious commodity and comes from trees, one of our dwindling natural resources. Stay conscious of the need to conserve paper, and rethink some of your work or school printing practices. This will cut down on wasted paper and will decrease the amount of new paper that needs to be purchased. Don't print things out unless absolutely necessary. Try not to print emails. Back up files on your computer using multiple electronic methods and locations. If you still have old one-sided sheets of paper around, use them for printing, copying, or as a notepad for taking notes. And always recycle paper rather than throwing it in the trash.
