Notes from the Cantor ………………………………………. THE POWER OF MUSIC III I have often been invited by churches and other non-Jewish organizations to perform and lecture about Judaism in general, and in particular about Jewish and synagogue music. On the last such occasion, for St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Maumee, OH, I began by reviewing the importance of music in Jewish history, emphasizing that in the synagogue service almost nothing is spoken, the preferred form of prayer being through music and song. I traced the development of Jewish music from its earliest roots, beginning with the Torah, Genesis 4: 21 which states that Yuval was “the ancestor of all who play the harp and flute (kinnor v’ugav).” I prepared several handouts for attendees, and since this last lecture was a month before Pesach, I used Passover’s rich, varied musical tradition to demonstrate the power of Jewish music. Included in my demonstration of Passover music for St Paul’s, were the following diverse musical examples: Torah chanting, haftorah chanting, Shir Hashirim - The Biblical Song of Songs, the Hagaddah chant, Seder melodies, and some unique Pesach prayer melodies such as Tefilat Tal – the Prayer for Rain recited on the first day of Pesach. Attendees were amazed by the variety and contrast of music, such as my demonstration of some 150 different ways we sing the trops. You too will have a chance to experience this music during CBI’s Passover University on March 11.. I will be teaching one of the many classes being offered. At the request of the committee who are hard at work preparing a wonderful, inspiring program, included in the packet each participant will receive, will be a cd with a few of the seder’s best songs (both traditional and new) that I have recorded, to enhance your own seder experience. I hope you will avail yourselves of these wonderful opportunities to experience our rich and inspiring Pesach musical tradition. Join us for Passover University on March 11 (info on the front cover of this bulletin) and on the first day of Pesach, Shabbat March 31 at 9:30 AM when we will hold a Service of Reaffirmation (come find out what this is all about). Special holiday services continue on Sunday April 1 at 9:30 AM and on Friday April 6 and the conclusion of the holiday on Shabbat April 7 at 9:30 AM which will include the Yizkor memorial service around 11 AM. Each of these services and all morning services during the eight days of Pesach will include our customary luxury Kiddushim! I wish our entire CBI family a wonderful and meaningful Pesach celebration.

President’s Message…………………………….…………... Spring Has Sprung! I am writing this on a cloudy but warm day in February, with snow disappearing and hanging icicles quickly dripping off the eaves, promising plenty of mud to replace the ice and snow. It feels a lot like Spring. By the time you get this bulletin, it will be March and even closer to the first day of Spring. Every day is a bit longer, and before you know it, the sun will be up before morning minyan starts. The changing season brings up many thoughts about tending the garden, the stirring of life all round us, the return of migrating birds and, of course, the return of our own snowbirds back to Toledo and to CBI. As always, the march of the seasons is seen in our Jewish calendar. Purim will have passed when you get this column. I hope you were able to go to the CBI program this year, and had some hamantashen. Then before you know it, Pesach will be here. In fact, I expect some of our friends have already started cleaning and preparing their homes. According to many sources, Passover is among the most, possibly THE most celebrated of all Jewish holidays. It certainly has a lot of memories for many of us, fondly recalling a Seder with family and friends. Some of my favorites were those with guests who brought aging parents. That usually meant a Seder table spanning 7 or 8 decades of life. One of my best memories is of a Seder we did not attend. I interrupted that Seder with a phone call from the hospital to tell two sets of new grandparents about their first grandchild, and some others that they were now aunts and uncles. I suspect that there may have been some extra wine included in the celebration that evening. For another Seder memory, you have to think back to when the paper was delivered to your door by a young paperboy [or papergirl], who then showed up periodically to collect the money. One Seder, we opened the door for Eliyahu [Elijah the prophet] just as the paperboy was arriving to collect. I don’t know who was more surprised. Seders seem to come in all lengths and styles, as long as the critical requirements are included. What are these critical requirements? How long does it have to be? Do I have to drink all of the four glasses of wine? When do we eat? We will be learning a lot about Pesach very soon at the upcoming Passover University on March 11. It will be a wonderful event with something for everyone. If you have not yet done so, take a look at the wonderful classes that are available, and read about the amazing faculty we have assembled from around the world. You will be astonished. In fact, I personably offer a money-back guarantee if you, your children and your friends do not have a good time! With warm Springtime wishes,

Howard Rosenberg

On May 7, Israeli Ambassador Dani Dayan will be keynoting on event at B'nai Israel along with four Toledoans: Dick Anderson; Cedar Creek Church Pastor, Luke Shortridge; University of Toledo Hillel student and B’nai Israel member Hannah Kramer and Shomer Emunim member John Glaza, who will be sharing some highlights of their trips. The evening is open to the public. A visual display of the photos taken by Toledoans during trips to Israel will be shown. Send your pictures to: Israel at 70 Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo 6465 Sylvania Ave. Sylvania, 43560 or Israel@jewishtoledo.org by March 1.

Pesach 5778…………..…………………………………………. CBI PESACH KASHRUT ALERT 2016/5776 In November 2015 the Committee on Jewish Law of Conservative Judaism announced a decision permitting kitniyot (ie. rice, corn, legumes) on Pesach.

Here are some guidelines. 1. Fresh corn on the cob, fresh beans may be used on Pesach and purchased during the holiday. 2. Dried kitniyot can be purchased before the holiday bagged or in boxes and checked for hametz. These should not be purchased from bins as the bins may contain hametz. 3. Canned kitniyot must have Pesach certification since canning may involve hametz. 4. Frozen raw kitniyot like corn, edamame, soy beans etc. may be purchased in bags before the holiday & do not require Pesach certification, but should be checked for hametz. 5. Processed kitniyot including tofu require Pesach certification as they may contain hametz. 6. Those who continue the restriction on kitniyot, may eat from dishes and utensils that have come into contact with kitniyot on the holiday, and may eat kitniyot derivatives like oil etc.

Mehirat Hametz— The Selling of Hametz ‫מכירת חמץ‬

Preparation for Passover The ceremony of removing leaven (bedikat Hametz) is to take place Thursday evening, March 29, 2018. Hametz may be eaten until 10:00 a.m. on Friday March 30, 2018. The Passover home atmosphere is created each year by the traditional practice of thoroughly cleansing the home, and by the removal of hametz, or leaven, in preparation for Pesach,as well as throughout the Passover days, both at home and away. The term hametz is applied not only to foods, but also to the dishes and utensils in which the foods are prepared or served during the year. “Any manner of hametz (leavened food or utensils) owned by a Jew during the Passover holiday is forbidden to use.” Since conditions make it impossible to literally fulfill the Biblical command to destroy all leavened products, our sages instituted a practice called Mehirat Hametz, the selling of hametz. We are reminded of the necessity to divest ourselves of ownership of hametz, and make our home ritually ready.

The sale of hametz is conducted between a representative of the synagogue and a non-Jew. After Passover the hametz is repurchased by the Jewish community. If you would like Cantor Lichterman to sell your hametz, please fill out the form and return it to the synagogue office not later than Friday March 30, following morning minyan. Don’t Sell All your Hametz! When cleaning out your cupboard and pantries in preparation for Pesach, consider donating unopened packages of hametz and canned goods to a food pantry such as JFS. Items such as crackers, rice, cookies, lentils, tuna, and peanut butter will be gratefully accepted by these organizations and passed on to those whose cupboards are empty. Let those who are hungry this Passover season share in your celebration by receiving food that you might otherwise “sell” or dispose of. Food can be brought to the synagogue where receptacles will be clearly marked.

Please see Sale of Hametz form on page 2

Eruv Tavshilin There is a tradition to make an Eruv Tavshilin for the Holidays when they fall before Shabbat. Since we do not cook on Yom Tov for the next day of Shabbat and we cannot cook meals on Shabbat, we make an Eruv Tavshilin by setting aside two cooked items on Erev Yom Tov, such as a hard boiled egg, challah, meat or fish, and make the following declaration. We bless You our G-d, Creator of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with Your commandments, and taught us concerning the observance of the eruv. By means of this eruv, may we be permitted to bake, cook, keep dishes warm, light candles, and prepare during the Holiday for Shabbat. 5
