+ Better+late+than+never,+right?+You+probably+did+not+expect+your+rabbis+to+be+ + writing+about+Hanukkah+for+the+January+newsletter.+But,+sometimes,+you+have+ to+write+when+the+inspiration+arises.+After+last+month’s+newsletter+was+ + published,+it+hit+us:+If+you’ve+been+around+Ohev+Tzedek+lately,+you’ve+probably+ noticed+that+there+has+been+an+immense+cleaning+out,+purging,+and+ + rededicating+taking+place+upstairs+in+the+Education+Wing.+The+vast+majority+of+ + the+books+and+other+items+up+there+(old+bingo+materials,+old+sanctuary+ seating,+dozens+of+empty+cardboard+boxes,+old+electronics,+choir+robes,+and+ + much+more)+were+no+longer+useful+to+the+synagogue,+and+it+was+time+that+ space+was+re>claimed+and+made+available+for+something+besides+storage.+ + + +

+

The+purging,+cleaning,+and+re>painting+included+the+hard>working+efforts+of+a+number+of+our+congregants,+including+ Harvey+and+Kathy+Farbman,+Mark+Huberman,+Neil+Yutkin,+Jerry+Haber,+Shari+Della+Penna,+Murray+Davis,+Ron+Sabelli,+and+ John+Casey.+What+a+wonderful+gift+this+amazing+team,+and+particularly+Harvey+and+Kathy,+has+given+to+each+of+us+by+ helping+to+attend+to+neglected+corners+of+our+sacred+space.+ + Shari+Della+Penna,+Beth+Holloway,+and+Mary+Ann+Cmil+have+contributed+a+similar+gift+through+their+efforts+in+cleaning+our+ lovely+gift+shop,+and+even+the+gift+shop+display+window+outside+the+OT+office.+Take+a+peak+at+both+spaces+next+time+ you’re+in+the+building.+You+will+likely+be+surprised+by+the+beautiful+items+that+can+be+purchased+within+our+very+building.+ + Overall,+these+hard>working+teams+have+created+a+physical+transformation+of+biblical+proportions+to+some+less+cared+for+ areas+of+our+building.+Well,+I+suppose+the+transformation+has+not+exactly+been+of+biblical+proportions,+since+Hanukkah+is+ a+post>biblical+holiday.+Strikingly,+though,+the+final+cleaning+and+purging+of+the+upstairs+rooms+coincided+quite+closely+ with+the+commemoration+of+the+Maccabees’+cleaning+and+purging+of+the+Temple+so+many+years+ago.+While+we+haven’t+ yet+received+word+of+finding+any+hidden+cruses+of+oil+with+the+seal+of+the+high+priest+upstairs,+perhaps+one+will+still+turn+ up.+ +

It+took+more+than+one+person+to+clean+up+the+ancient+Temple,+and+it+has+taken+more+than+one+person+to+clean+out+our+ “Temple”+of+Ohev+Tzedek.+We+would+like+to+acknowledge+and+deeply+thank+these+individuals,+and+we+invite+you+to+add+ your+appreciation+to+ours.+It+is+indeed+amazing+to+see+what+can+happen+when+a+few+people+come+together+to+get+a+job+ done.+Thank+you,+again,+for+your+dedication+to+our+community.+ +
