An artistic depiction of the Ohio Holocaust & Liberators Memorial at the Ohio Statehouse in downtown Columbus. The memorial was inspired by Holocaust survivors – and the military members who liberated them – who have called Ohio home over the years, according to the memorial’s website. The memorial’s public location is meant to serve as a reminder that the horrors of the Holocaust didn’t only occur in private but were often visible and part of the daily lives of men, women and children. The project was launched in November 2011 by then-Gov. John R. Kasich and was dedicated during a public ceremony June 2, 2014. For more information, visit ohioholocaustmemorial.org.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Welcome to SOURCE Columbus!

T

he Columbus Jewish News has experienced a great deal of exciting growth in 2019. From launching the Shabbat Shalom e-newsletter, our weekly roundup of headlines and upcoming events, to introducing 18 Difference Makers, an annual celebration of those who espouse the qualities of tikkun olam to better Columbus’ Jewish community, there’s been much to share with our readers. It’s with that growth in mind that I’m pleased to introduce SOURCE Columbus, your new annual guide to Jewish living in Central Ohio. Longtime Ohio Jewish Chronicle subscribers knew how useful Shalom Columbus was to the community. In replacing that publication, SOURCE Columbus will prove to be an even more valuable resource, delivering critical information to readers by providing a comprehensive snapshot of the community. As you page through SOURCE Columbus, you’ll find: • Extensive listings from community organizations, agencies, synagogues, camps and schools; • Additional listings from area businesses, from those that provide health care services, senior care services or professional/legal services to those that offer catering and other party services, arts and culture opportunities, or banking and financial planning assistance; and • At-a-glance information regarding Jewish holidays as well as weekly candlelighting times. In other words, SOURCE Columbus is a must-read for area newcomers and longtime residents alike who are seeking information about the Jewish community and how best to navigate it. SOURCE Columbus will be distributed to the CJN’s 20,000 readers as well as regional institutions, realestate agencies, relocation services and retail outlets. That said, if you know of someone – a co-worker, neighbor or even a family member – who’s new to the area, I encourage you to offer them a copy of SOURCE Columbus or direct them to the digital edition at columbusjewishnews.com/source. Lastly, we at the Columbus Jewish News are extremely grateful for all of the support we’ve received during our first 13 months of publication. We take great pride in covering the community and serving our readers, and we feel SOURCE Columbus is a natural extension of those efforts.

6 SOURCE 2019 / 2020

I expect you’ll agree, and I invite you to continue following along – whether on the pages of the CJN or via Facebook (@columbusjewishnews), Instagram and Twitter (both at @columbusjnews) – in the months and years to come as we continue to grow and further meet the needs of Central Ohio’s Jewish community.

2019 / 2020 HOLIDAYS

JEWISH HOLIDAYS and noteworthy dates 2019 ROSH HASHANAH

Sunday, Sept. 29 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, Oct. 1 (ends at nightfall) Rosh Hashanah is the birthday of the universe, the day G‑d created Adam and Eve, and it’s celebrated as the head of the Jewish year. It’s celebrated with candle lighting in the evenings, festive meals with sweet delicacies during the night and day, prayer services that include the sounding of the ram’s horn (shofar) on both mornings and desisting from creative work.

YOM KIPPUR

Tuesday, Oct. 8 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, Oct. 9 (ends at nightfall) Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year – the day on which we are closest to God and to the quintessence of our own souls. It is the Day of Atonement – “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before God” (Leviticus 16:30). For nearly 26 hours – from several minutes before sunset on 9 Tishrei to after nightfall on 10 Tishrei – we “afflict our souls,” or abstain from food and drink, do not wash or anoint our bodies, do not wear leather footwear and abstain from marital relations.

SUKKOT

Sunday, Oct. 13 (begins at sunset) Sunday, Oct. 20 (ends at nightfall) For 40 years, as our ancestors traversed the Sinai Desert, following the Exodus from Egypt, miraculous “clouds of glory” surrounded and hovered over them, shielding them from the dangers and discomforts of the desert. Ever since, we remember God’s kindness and reaffirm our trust in His providence by dwelling in a sukkah – a hut of temporary construction with a roof covering of branches – for the duration of the Sukkot festival (on the Jewish calendar Tishrei 15-21). For seven days and nights, we eat all our meals in the sukkah and otherwise regard it as our home.

SHEMINI ATZERET

SIMCHAT TORAH

Sunday, Oct. 20 (begins at sunset) Monday, Oct. 21 (begins at sunset)

Monday, Oct. 21 (ends at nightfall) Tuesday, Oct. 22 (ends at nightfall)

The holiday of Sukkot is followed by an independent holiday called Shemini Atzeret. In Israel, this is a one-day holiday; in the Diaspora, it is a two-day holiday, and the second day is known as Simchat Torah. This holiday is characterized by utterly unbridled joy, which surpasses even the joy of Sukkot. The joy reaches its climax on Simchat Torah, when we celebrate the conclusion – and restart – of the annual Torah-reading cycle.

CHANUKAH

Sunday, Dec. 22 (begins at sunset) Monday, Dec. 30 (ends at nightfall) Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting. The menorah holds nine flames, one of which is the shamash (“attendant”), which is used to kindle the other eight lights. On the first night, we light just one flame. On the second night, an additional flame is lit. By the eighth night of Chanukah, all eight lights are kindled. Special blessings are recited, often to a traditional melody, before the menorah is lit, and traditional songs are sung afterward.

2019 / 2020 HOLIDAYS 2020 PURIM

TU B’SHEVAT

Sunday, Feb. 9 (begins at sunset) Monday, Feb. 10 (ends at nightfall)

Tuesday, March 10 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, March 11 (ends at nightfall)

Tu b’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar, is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. We mark the day of Tu b’Shevat by eating fruit, particularly the kinds singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.

The jolly festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

PASSOVER

Wednesday, April 8 (begins at sunset) Thursday, April 16 (ends at nightfall) The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. By following the rituals of Passover, we have the ability to relive and experience the true freedom that our ancestors gained.

YOM HASHOAH

Monday, April 20 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, April 21 (ends at nightfall) Holocaust Remembrance Day

YOM HAZIKARON

YOM HA’ATZMAUT

Monday, April 27 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, April 28 (ends at nightfall)

Tuesday, April 28 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, April 29 (ends at nightfall)

Israeli Memorial Day

Israeli Independence Day

SHAVUOT

Thursday, May 28 (begins at sunset) Saturday, May 30 (ends at nightfall) Shavuot coincides with the date that God gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. It comes after 49 days of eager counting, as we prepared ourselves for this special day. It is celebrated by lighting candles, staying up all night to learn Torah, hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogue, feasting on dairy foods and more.

TISHA B’AV

Wednesday, July 29 (begins at sunset) Thursday, July 30 (ends at nightfall) The Three Weeks is an annual mourning period that falls in the summer during which we do not cut our hair, purchase new clothes, listen to music or hold weddings. It reaches its climax and concludes with the fast of the ninth of Av, the date when both Holy Temples were set aflame. This is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, and it is also the date that many other tragedies befell our people. The fast of Tisha b’Av begins at sunset the previous evening. Besides fasting, we abstain from additional pleasures: washing, applying lotions or creams, wearing leather shoes and marital relations. Until midday, we sit on the floor or on low stools.
