AT CHIZUK AMUNO CONGREGATION AND SCHOOLS Engaging Jewish Life & Learning MAY 2018 | Iyar / Sivan 5778

RABBI’S COLUMN This month I found a blessing in that which is hidden from the eye. In advance of Passover I studied the Talmudic tractate Ta’anit RABBI DEBI WECHSLER which concerns itself with narratives of rain, fasting, Torah Study and other miscellany. In it I rediscovered Rabbi Yitzchak’s teaching that, “Blessing is found only in something that is hidden from the eye.” Later teachers explain its meaning that life’s most authentic blessings cannot be found in anything quantifiable such as wealth or possessions. The Talmud wants to teach us that true blessing is found in the realm of the spirit. Many of us can testify to the accuracy of this statement in our own lives as it relates to friendship, acts of loving kindness, family relationships, and Shabbat and festivals. My experience has also found its truth in the hidden blessings of our own community which cannot be quantified or counted. Last month our community welcomed a new Jew into our faith - a young woman who found beauty and meaning in our tradition and our congregation. She identifies with Am Yisrael, the Jewish people, and understands her Jewish role in human redemption. Her conversion was hidden from view but was without doubt one of the most significant blessings of the month for Chizuk Amuno. A hidden blessing was discovered as some of our school parents sat and studied Jewish text together. Instead of dropping off their children and Continued on Page 2

From Page 1

leaving, these adults nourished their spirits and intellects by educating themselves jewishly. Excellence in adult jewish study has traditionally been one of the hallmarks of Chizuk Amuno; this particular group is a hidden segment of our population – school parents who learn. The last are the hidden heroes of the congregation. Those who are our leaders - in kindness. The young family who met a new person at Shabbat morning services and asked for their contact information so they could extend a personal welcome. The seventh grade boy who hosted a baseball game on our fields just so a new kid could make friends. The working mother of three who asked what needed doing at the shul, and then did it. While Rabbi Yitzchak may be correct that blessing can only be found in that which is hidden from the eye, we can nevertheless count these blessings and bring them out into the light of the community.

SANCTUARY & KRIEGER AUDITORIUM AIR CONDITIONING REPAIR While we always strive to be a warm, friendly congregation and community, we apologize in advance if the emergency repair of our Sanctuary and Krieger Auditorium air conditioning system is not 100% completed by the upcoming warm spring and summer months. While conducting an extensive review of our entire building and facility to develop a short-term and long-range maintenance and repair plan, our House, Grounds & Security Committee discovered an immediate, emergency need to replace the 60-year-old air conditioning system in our Sanctuary and Krieger Auditorium. As of the publication of this article, we have sent out bids for the work and funding is being arranged. For those attending services or programs in these two spaces, please plan ahead, dress appropriately and anticipate the possibility of a warmer than usual temperature.

GOLDSMITH EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER BREAKFAST WITH THE BIRD What a great way to kick off spring and the start of the 2018 baseball season.

ROSENBLOOM RELIGIOUS SCHOOL ACHSHAV AND NETIVON ROAD TRIPS During Presidents Weekend, our Netivon graduating class spent 2 days in N.Y.C. celebrating four years of High School Judaic and Hebrew studies. Nine Achshav and Netivon students attended the 2018 AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington D.C. on March 4th-6th. During the plenary sessions they had the opportunity to hear from top American and Israeli political leaders. But the highlight, as always, was their visit to Capitol Hill to lobby on behalf of Israel and to strengthen the Israeli-American relationship. In March, the 6th and 7th grade students visited the Jewish Museum of Maryland, as part of their study of immigration and family history. The students toured the Lloyd St. Synagogue and B'nai Israel (the first home of Chizuk Amuno) and learned about how Baltimore's Jewish community started, grew, and changed. Thirty Achshav and Netivon students traveled to the Big Apple on Sunday, April 22 to celebrate their year of Jewish learnings. Highlights included a performance of Kinky Boots and a visit to Ocean Odyssey Adventure. In April, our 6th and 7th grade RRS students traveled to the Lower East Side as a culminating experience of their study of immigrations and family history. With the help of CharacTours, they met Abraham Cahan, Sender Jarmulovky, Lilian Wald, and Sophie Tucker on their walking tour. Jewish education can take place outside the walls of the classroom. There are so many lessons to be learned during curriculum connection encounters on the road. Page 6

ROSENBLOOM RELIGIOUS SCHOOL DEDICATES NEW EXHIBIT “LIVING, LOVING, & LEARNING ABOUT ISRAEL” TELLING STORIES WITH 70 OBJECTS In 2010, the director of the British Museum used 100 objects to tell the history of the world. In this spirit, Rosenbloom Religious School is celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday with a special exhibit of photographs of 70 objects which tell the stories of our community’s connection to Israel. Each family received an invitation to find an object from their home which tells something about their family’s relationship to Israel. We have already received close to 70 photographs. The Hendler Timeline will be filled with all of these photographs of proud students displaying their objects, and the stories we will learn about their relationship to Israel. The exhibit will open on Sunday, May 6th with a dedication and a dance party. After its opening, we will invite anyone from the congregation who would like to be part of this special project.


We express special gratitude for funding from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Gemilut Hasadim Endowment Fund of the Chizuk Amuno Foundation, Inc. For questions or to participate in any Gemilut Hasadim programs, contact Cheryl Snyderman, or ext. 300, or refer to our website for more information.

We also collected almost $50 in monetary donations which was forwarded to Jewish food funds that provide support in combating hunger. All of the recipients expressed great appreciation for our efforts and we, in turn, thank you.
