“Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it 's gone. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” -Joni Mitchell--

I will admit that the holiday of Thanksgiving is usually one that upsets me more than it brings me gratitude. Each year, I find myself thinking about how sad it is that we still need a day to remind us to be thankful. Even more, why is it that many times we become thankful after adversity and suffering befallus? Is it that we've become too complacent with our share in the world? Is it that we easily take for granted that what we have today will be with us tomorrow? This month we have the opportunity to put ourselves in the shoes of those who have less than we do and more specifically, those who would be unable to take part in a meal without the support of others. It is these individuals who truly know the meaning of being thankful. It is these individuals who truly know the significance of each meal. It is these individuals who truly know the value of those who give from the heart. There may be no better way to demonstrate our gratitude for what we have and for the food we have on our plates each meal, than to pay it forward. I hope you will join in as Congregation B’nai Israel teams up with Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church for the 34th annual Feed the H u n g r y : C o m m u n i t y T h a n k s g i v i n g D i n n e r o n Tu e s d ay, November 21, 2017 from 3:30 PM - 7:30 PM.

As children, our parents constantly give us reminders: “brush your teeth, comb your hair, say, ‘please,' but perhaps the most famous of all reminders is to say, “thank you.” Whether after receiving a compliment or a special treat, saying, “thank you” is something that must be learned. As adults, Thanksgiving serves as this reminder. Fortunately for us, Judaism offers us more reminders than just this once-a-year holiday. Our liturgy offers us daily prayers and blessings that can help us give thanks for every m o m e n t o f t h e d a y. E ve n m o re , t h ro u g h o u r va l u e s o f mitzvot (good deeds), g’milut chasadim (acts of love and kindness) and v’ahavta l'reacha kamocha (loving your neighbor as yourself), Judaism provides us ways to demonstrate our gratitude through giving to others. Through unexpected life events, any one of us is capable of becoming the one in need, of being the person on the receiving end, of needing to rely on the support of others at times. Sometimes this means needing a shoulder to cry on or a small loan of money. Other times this means needing food for each day or clothing to wear. When we humanize those in need, we can realize that they are no different from us. We can realize that each and every day is one worth giving thanks. “And they came, every one whose heart was stirred and whose spirit was made willing, brought an offering…” [Exodus 25:21] Wishing you and your families a meaningful Thanksgiving!

The season is in full swing as we exited the High Holy Days with a bang at our Simchat Torah Sweet Celebration. Our 45-student strong Junior Choir, from ages 5 through 10, led us in song while clarinet, tuba, piano, and 2 drummers regaled us with a Klezmer Hakafah times seven. We went straight into an unbelievable weekend with Nefesh Mountain. My kids and I are still singing ”I lift my eyes to the mountain…” nonstop and both girls are begging for fiddle lessons. Thankfully they have a wonderful CD and the fabulous Youtube channel so we never have to stop listening to their revolutionary “Jewgrass” sound. Lookin g to t h e mon t h of November, w e resume our First Fridays Shabbat, which is always a musical treat and will feature the Acoushticks Band. The next weekend, on November

On November 17, the Cantor’s Chantors will lead an uplifting Shabbat Alive service with Cantor Shore and B’nai’s Big Beat Band. Lastly, the Friday after Thanksgiving we will sing our favorite songs of gratitude for all of our blessings. November is shaping up to be a very musical month, and we look forward to hearing your lovely voices from the Bima every Shabbat.

Isaiah 12:4 A “ nd you shall say on that day, "Thank the Lord, call in His Name, publicize His deeds among the peoples; keep it in remembrance, for His Name is exalted”. In 1621, when the colonists in Plymouth Massachusetts survived a harsh winter and were blessed with a bountiful harvest, they recalled the Torah holiday of Sukkot and in imitation celebrated the first American Thanksgiving. It seems fitting that after last month where we first celebrated the sweetness of the new year, then repented for atonement, and finally rejoiced with Sukkot, we also turned back the clock one hour. Perhaps turning back the clock is symbolic of us being able to turn back from events we wish we would take back, but only by one hour reminds us we cannot totally undo what occurred. Or perhaps turning back the clock by one hour allows us the opportunity to share our “gained” hour with those less fortunate than us. But whatever the meaning of the extra hour, let us all take this one hour to reflect how fortunate we are to have Congregation B’nai Israel as the centerpiece of our spiritual life. As I sat at the Nefesh Mountain concert, I realized we as Jews can be thankful for being able to express our love for Judaism whether it be through traditional liturgies or set to the tune of bluegrass music. We as Jews should be thankful that we have the freedom to practice our religion at any time or in any place. I am thankful I am able to serve as your congregational president, helping us define the spirituality that we as Jews are ever seeking, alongside the friendship and lifelong connections Congregation B’nai Israel is known for. I am thankful we have terrific staff to help us deliver

our mission, from our Executive Director, Steve Allen, and our clergy, as I described them last month as the “Fab Five”, to everyone else who promotes Congregation B’nai Israel. As we give thanks for everything we have, we also must think of the people who are less fortunate than us in our own community. Consistent with my remarks on Yom Kippur, extraordinary results come from ordinary items. So while we count the ways for which we are thankful, let’s not only think of, but help the less fortunate among us, and allow them to have a similar experience through our participation in Feed The Hungry on November 21. But please do not stop there. Every day we should give thanks for what we have and our ability to find significance in objects that appear to be ordinary. We were extraordinarily fortunate to host over 300 teens from across the state at our NFTY fall Kallah. How fortunate we were to be able to install two rabbis last month, and meet the people inspirational in their life, both personally and professionally. Ta ke a mo men t o r you r extra hour, reflect on what you are t h a n k f u l for, and email me at president@cbiboca.org with how you want to be involved to make the most of what Congregation B’nai Israel has to offer. When you touch a life, you touch a generation. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Jeff

We were asked to write our

who make Debbie and I proud every day. Despite the fact I will get in trouble for these next few sentences, I am blessed and grateful every day for my incredible wife, Debbie. She is the source of my continued positive attitude that I am able to bring to CBI, and she is my partner and best friend in life. I am a very luc ky man. I have to add the pets of the family and despite an aging Golden Retriever, Honey, she has brought us so much joy in our lives and now we are enjoying every day, one day at a time.

columns this issue about gratefulness and Thanksgiving. In my mind, that is a combination of looking back and looking forward. I am grateful that we survived Hurricane Irma, the High Holy Days, all our special programs, and the Fall Kallah with over 300 Jewish teenagers on our campus for the weekend of October 1315. None of this would have been possible for success without the outstanding effort of your CBI staff. The maintenance crew, the security team, the staff from our pre- school and religious school, our administration staff, and our Senior staff and clergy all went over and above in their efforts to ensure every day was a successful one here at CBI.

We will be gathering together as a family for Thanksgiving as some are coming down from NY plus Debbie’s family here in Florida and it will be a great day to be together. We will eat too much and watch football, but love just being together.

I am not a big fan of the expression “it takes a village”, but in the month of October we would never have been able to accomplish all we did and get through all the obstacles and issues we faced without our entire team. So for all of them I am grateful, and honored to be in charge of such a terrific group. I am grateful that our team stays strong and are cohesive in making sure that our Congregation continues to flow spiritually, programmatically, and financially.

I have always said I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to be your Executive Director, and coupled with health and a great family I am eternally grateful to all who surround me and feel blessed that I am able to do what I love to do both personally and professionally. Debbie and I and the entire Allen family wish all of you and your families a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and enjoy your time with family, it is so precious.

On a personal level, I remain grateful every minute of every day for my family despite the fact many of them are away from us in NY. We have expanded to 3 grandchildren this past year as twins, Michaela and Thomas, have joined big brother, Jackson, who will be 3 in January. I am thankful for my 3 grown children

SHABBAT ALIVE ARZA AND THE URJ BIENNIAL From the ARZA position paper. September 8, 2017 Israel’s founding Zionist vision expressed in its Declaration of Independence: “…will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; it will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture.” True to this Declaration of Independence, the Association of Reform Zionists of America (ARZA) strongly opposes a campaign advocating the dismantling the Palestinian Authority, annexing all of the West Bank into Israel, paying Palestinians to leave their homes in the West Bank and move to an Arab Country. ARZA supports a two-state solution as the only way to assure peace between our two peoples with defined

borders, security, mutual recognition of each other’s national sovereignty, and an end to the conflict. ARZA urges the government of Israel to reject this annexation plan and reaffirm the principle of “a two states for two-peoples” resolution. Join ARZA members and your CBI friends at URJ Biennial, December 6-10 in Boston, MA, attend sessions with ARZA President Rabbi Josh Weinberg and hear more about our vision for a progressive, inclusive Israel. Together we are stronger, together we are louder, and together we can make the difference. Become a member of ARZA and become a member of a vast network of likeminded, progressive Jewish voices, working in unison, to build a better Israel.

The Kamerlink Family

meet

Many people might not know this, but Jonathan and I are literally the boy/girl next door story. We grew up on the north shore of Chicago, Illinois, three houses apart from one another. Much of our childhood we were not friendly with each other, but at the 2011 annual Big Event Fundraiser of JUF’s Young Leadership Division, we ran into each other. Here it is 6 years later, 1 wedding, 3 kids, and a big move from our comfortable cold home in Chicago to the wonderfully, warm tropical south Florida. When we came to Boca Raton, we knew it was important to us as parents to model for our children the need to be engaged with Jewish organizations at both the spiritual level as well as educational level. While we completed our recursive rounds of the Jewish preschools, we instantly knew that CBI was the right place for our family. Our initial impression with the early childhood development program at CBI is unwavering to this day. Before our eyes, our children have been carefully molded from babies into articulate, kind, and thoughtful children. Jonathan and I are forever grateful for how the early childhood program in a short amount of time both welcomed us with open arms and greatly impacted our children’s development. We have just concluded the High Holiday Season of Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, and Succos. During this period of time, our family reflects on the previous year. This year we are the most grateful that hashem has blessed us with 3 beautiful, happy, and most importantly healthy children. Myself being a former speech therapist, I have worked with many children that have had both physical and mental disabilities. This background makes me appreciate the resources CBI has available to all their children. As the winter season approaches us, our families will be looking forward to Thanksgiving. Yet again this will be another wonderful excuse to spend time with family and friends. Our typical Thanksgiving, involves spending time with our parents all of which live in south Florida and our children enjoying the warmth of Floridian winters. This past year, Jonathan has decided to open his own pain medicine practice in Boca Raton. It has always been his passion in life to be a physician and to help care for others. We are very excited and thankful for his practice, Kamerlink Pain Institute to open in October 2017. We wish all Congregation B'nai Israel members and nonmembers a very Happy Thanksgiving and New Year. May you and your family always be blessed with health, love, and happiness. Thank you CBI for the joy that you bring to us and our children. You are truly a beautiful and special place.

Love,

The Kamerlink Family
