Several years ago, I read a beautiful commentary on one of the opening paragraphs of the Haggadah by Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson. I was so moved by it, that I have kept it. Its message is timeless, but this year especially, it seems so poignant and relevant… Each year, we gather around our seder tables, surrounded by friends and family, to recount the tale of our ancestors’ miraculous deliverance from Egyptian slavery. As we read and debate our haggadot and look to the classical words of the rabbis and sages of old, it is worth stopping for a moment to examine the very first passage of the seder ritual.

Immediately after the introductory blessings for kiddush and karpas, we invite the hungry into our midst. Using the same Aramaic words that have been recited for thousands of years, Jewish families uncover the matzot and recite: Ha Lachma Anya - “This is the bread of affliction which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt. All who are hungry, let them enter and eat. All who are in need, let them come celebrate Pesach. Now we are here; next year in the land of Israel. Now we are enslaved; next year we will be free.” What a strange opening line! Ha Lachma Anya refers to the matzah, but then goes on to address people who aren’t even sitting at the seder table, who may not be Jewish at all! Why start the seder, a chance to recall our history, with this stirring but unrelated call to feed the hungry? What does this have to do with Pesach? There are two traditional ways of interpreting Ha Lachma Anya. The first interpretation notes that the text refers to bodily needs first (“all who are hungry”) and to spiritual needs second (“all who are in need”). The message seems to be that one cannot be spiritually free unless freed from the debilitating plagues of poverty, hunger and illness. In the words of Mishnah Avot 3:17, “without bread, there is no Torah.” Without material security, it is impossible to attain spiritual depth. As is often true in Jewish tradition, the opposite interpretation also conveys a significant truth. Notice that in the last two sentences of Ha Lachma Anya, the order is reversed: first comes redemption (“next year in the land of Israel”) followed by physical freedom (“next year we will be free”). It takes a liberated spirit to motivate people to fight for their physical freedom. It takes vision and insight to stand up against tyranny, whether from a powerful dictator or an irresistible urge. Liberation of the body requires integrity and authenticity, unencumbered by the blinders of convention or of cowardice.

Rabbi Robert A. Silvers rabbisilvers@cbiboca.org

These two views — that physical security must precede spiritual growth, and that a free spirit is the necessary precursor to any lasting physical liberation — both illumine important aspects of the human situation. And both interpretations confirm the sad reality that we are still in galut, still in exile. Not only because we don’t live in a redeemed Land of Israel, but because the world is still so distant from the vision of the Torah, still alienated from the attainment of harmonious and compassionate living. Too many go to bed hungry each night, too many still die of illnesses for which there are cures and too many suffer the deadening blows of bigotry and prejudice from their fellow human beings. In this world of suffering, disappointment and pain, Ha Lachma Anya is a clarion call, summoning the Jewish people to our historic task — l’takken olam b’malkhut Shaddai - to repair the world under the rule of God. All who are hungry may come and eat, but only if we live our lives and structure our society in such a way that the entire human family is cared for. Sadly, that is not the case today. In celebrating the liberation from Egyptian slavery, we need to look to ourselves, to recognize that we too often play the role of Pharaoh in the lives of others — as individuals by not welcoming those different than ourselves; as a community by not extending ourselves to the outcast, impoverished and hungry; as a people by not honoring other cultures and faiths as we would hope to be honored. Ha Lachma Anya, with its call to care for all in our society, reminds us that our role models should be Moses, the passionate spokesman for the downtrodden and the outcast, and God, the redeemer of slaves and the untiring protector of widows and orphans. I pray that this year as we gather together for Passover and read from the Haggadah, that these words might serve us as an inspiration to not just recall the Exodus and its meaning, but to take Rabbi Artson’s comments to heart…we all have a voice and we all have hands — so let us all be an active partner with God in healing and repairing the broken world in which we live. Bless you all – may you all have a Zissen Pesach.

On Shabbat Shira Cantor and Sarah were joined by an 18 piece Big Band. Our very own Peter Freudenberger played the trombone.

In addition to those events, Cantor and Sarah made time for CBI's Purim Shpiel rehearsals, and Cantor was proud to visit Israel to see her daughter Gabi graduate combat training and be awarded high honors and given her commander's beret.


k s e d e th From

Robin Siegal

President, Board of Trustees president@cbiboca.org Springtime has arrived in South Florida. How can I tell? Not so much by the weather, though the days are getting a bit longer and a bit warmer. The true signs: the car carriers are waiting to take our snowbirds' vehicles back up north and there is Kosher for Passover matzoh on the endcap displays in the grocery stores! While I enjoy the longer days (my husband and I can take a walk while it’s still light outside when he gets home from the office) and I don’t mind the little bump in temperature, it’s the preparation for celebrating Passover that’s the highlight of April (that, and the birthday of my daughter Brooke, who will be 18 this month!). There is a feeling of renewal when we clean our cabinets and closets and get ready for Pesach. We reflect on the meaning of Passover as we rid the storage areas of chametz and stuff not used or needed anymore. The literal cleaning is the easy part. It’s the figurative cleaning of ourselves that’s the challenge. The idea

of

that we are both physically and spiritually redeemed from slavery is a very powerful one. That we are ready to receive the Torah as individuals and as a people is overwhelming and exciting. And that we will be in charge of our actions and how we live our lives is liberating!

Like I said, the physical planning is the easy part: invite the guests, plan the menu, find the recipes, make a schedule for shopping and cooking, dig out the Haggadahs and other table decorations we only use for Passover (yes, I still put the rubber frogs on the table even though the youngest is Brooke!). Other ways I can recommend to prepare, if you have children in our Nadel Center for Early Childhood Education or our Barry Ira Graff School for Living Judaism, is by asking them to tell you what they are doing in school to prepare for Passover. Or by attending our Model Seders. Or by coming to our Siyuum Service (blessing of the first-borns) on April 10th. Or you can come to our amazing Beach Service on April 14th at 6:00 pm on the beach at

Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach (bring a beach chair). Share your memories, teach them, take photos and help them make memories of their own so they can pass them down to their own children and grandchildren. It’s the spiritual part of Passover that is the challenge. How will we continue to pass the message of Passover down to our children? The Haggadah says that “In every generation one must see himself as if he personally went out of Egypt.” All the physical planning will make the memories, but don’t forget to share the messages of freedom and redemption. And if you can find inspiration from what we do here at CBI, even better! Whatever way you choose to celebrate this holiday, I hope the idea of renewal helps you in considering a renewed commitment to your Jewish home, Congregation B’nai Israel. Zissan Pesach to all!

Robin

Steve Allen

Executive Director

steve.allen@cbiboca.org It is so hard to believe that spring is here again and the wonderful holiday of Passover is almost upon us. We have been through an exciting winter season with so many programs and events that were wonderful and well attended. It’s hard to imagine the next few months ahead being as busy, but believe me they are. This is also a time of reflection and a renewal of spirit and plans, and a great time to be with family. For those of you lucky enough to have a family that includes your parents, spend time with them. Unfortunately, I don’t have that option, as both my parents have passed away. Thank goodness for my immediate family and my wife Debbie’s family, who always fill the void and who I enjoy spending time with. Our Seders are spiritual and lively, and having all of us together, except for our two sons

and families up north, creates a positive atmosphere of a new beginning. We started many new things in a short period of time with this job as your Executive Director (17 months old), and a new home in Delray (4 months old), among other life changes. Soon there will be a change in leadership of the Congregation and while I am sure CBI will continue to flourish and be guided in the right direction, I need to say a few words now about our current president, Robin Siegal, before her term ends in a few months. For anyone that knows Robin or has worked with her, she is a breath of fresh air and a staunch supporter of every aspect of CBI. She is a presence. She represents the board at every event, Shabbat service and meetings, far beyond normal expectations. She is my partner, my colleague and my friend and I will miss her, although I hope she doesn’t stray

too far away from here, as CBI needs her. As the season turns to spring and a new beginning, it is always good to remember what got you to this point of renewal of “spirit,” renewal of ”body.” Robin Siegal represents all that is great about this congregation and as you run into her these next few months (and I’m sure you will!), give her a hug and say thank you. I also thank her family, especially her husband Jeff, who lent her to us for the last two years! As usual I encourage any of you to come and visit me with ideas, suggestions, thoughts, complaints, and even compliments. I love my job as your Executive Director. I consider it a privilege and an honor to represent CBI on a daily basis on campus and out in the Jewish community.

On Saturday night February 25, Congregation B’nai Israel held its annual fundraiser, CBI’s A Night at the Speakeasy. It was a great evening as the ballroom was transformed into a 1920’s Speakeasy lounge with wonderful food, lots of spirits, music, dancing and gambling. Members and guests from the entire CBI community came together to celebrate! And of course, we were there to raise money for our synagogue so we can continue to provide programs, support and financial assistance to our CBI family. A huge thank you to the Speakeasy Committee, Jeff Zadoff, Sheree Lewis, Gabrielle Knafo, Amanda Raines Cohen and Callie Davies. This event could not have taken place without your help!

Esther Zipper

Assistant to Executive Director esther.zipper@cbiboca.org

During Passover, we eat a lot of carbs, and of course, matzah. This may lead to less time eating healthy, especially if you’re planning to do the recent “matzah hits” such as Matzah Pizza, Chocolate Covered Matzah, or Caramel Gooey Matzah. This change in eating habits may also cause stomach upset. Therefore, I thought this wonderful vegetarian “Liver” recipe might be good to try! I don’t really like liver, but love this! It’s simple!

Esther

Mock Chopped Liver for Passover

Whether or not you like the “real thing,” this is a great spread for sandwiches, crackers, or veggies. I’ve added paprika and walnuts to the original recipe and decided to stick with the canned beans for a more authentic hue, but feel free to use freshly steamed if you prefer. Ingredients • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil, preferably organic • 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped • 1 hard-boiled egg • 1 can (19 ounces or 400 ml) cooked green beans, well drained (you can use fresh if you want) • 2/3 cup (160 ml) lightly toasted cashews, walnuts or combination (I used 1/3 cup/80 ml of each) • 1 tsp (5 ml) Bragg’s liquid aminos or soy sauce • 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) paprika • Salt and Pepper, to taste • Sliced green onion for garnish, if desired

12

COME BE INSPIRED

Instructions: Heat the oil in a nonstick frypan and add the onions. Fry over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until they are well browned and beginning to caramelize, about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, place all the remaining ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Once the onions are done, add them to the processor and blend until everything is smooth. Scrape into a bowl or container and allow to cool to room temperature before serving. Garnish with green onions, if desired. Makes about 2 cups (480 ml). Store, covered, in the refrigerator up to 4 days. Article printed from Ricki Heller: www.rickiheller.com Adapted from Nava Atlas

Spotlight “When your country cherishes life, you’ll do whatever it takes to save one”. —American Friendship Magen David Adom

After hearing the news about the devastating fires in Israel, Mira Davidson’s 7th grade Jewish Community Class decided to hold a fundraiser to help. The money raised would go directly to Jewish National Fund to help rebuild, replant, and help victims of these recent fires. The students brainstormed and decided to host a Talent Show during Tuesday Night School. To make the Talent Show happen, our 7th graders used the resources that they have been learning about in the SLJ for years. They made posters, talked to all of the students in 7th-10th grades to encourage them to participate, both in the talent and giving, planned an oneg for after the show, chose a price point for “admission” and talked to the families to encourage more participation. The Talent Show was a success. On Tuesday night, February 7, our students displayed their various talents that included singing, a jazz horn performance and comedians. The students were excited and enthusiastic to participate and to watch their peers. Through all of the promotion and planning, the students have raised $276 so far, and we know more is still coming! We are proud of our students and look forward to making this an annual event. Thank you to all the families that contributed, and especially to the Landau, Fox and Presser families for all of their assistance and food donations to help make the evening successful. Together we are stronger.

Zev Chazin 10th Grader:

BISY is a wonderful and amazing youth group. Being a member of BISY is special to me because it feels like we are all a family. I was told about BISY by older friends at my synagogue, and immediately felt drawn to it. I didn't start going to NFTY events until this year, and I really love it. I love meeting new people. I love how students can lead programs, be on the board, and create bright futures with new friends. I not only like going to NFTY events, but I like making sure everyone at the events is having a good time. BISY has helped me by bringing together my first group of true friends. It has taught me valuable leaderships skills, and it has made me grow out of my shell and into the fabulous and confident person I am today.

BETTER EATING WITH...

Stephanie Zeidenweber

many Passover recipes have egg in them? Matzah Brie, matzah balls, egg noodles in Passover chicken soups, etc... so on this special holiday that's coming up, I am here to tell you that no matter what dietary restriction you have, there is always a way to not only be healthy, but to stay true to each individual family's needs.

Big hi CBI! Mama Muncheez here and I have Passover on my mind. My girls absolutely love Passover. They make beautiful Haggadahs at school, they sing new songs all day (thank you Miss Susan for the frogs in their underwear one), and as a tradition, we watch "The Prince of Egypt" one too many times. All of this is great, but can you guess the one thing about Passover that they love even more? If you guessed the food, you were correct! Now let me tell you my own personal challenge. I have two kids with egg allergies. Have you ever realized how

In today's technologically advanced times, we are lucky because when we are in a bind, we can google or search social media for just about anything and find dozens of solutions. In my case, I found a Facebook group a few years ago by the name "Pesach recipes — eggless and allergy friendly". I found it just in time because I could not serve one more day of soggy sugary Passover cereal because I had to eliminate all the bread and pancakes and waffles in my house. That group inspired me to look up even more recipes that I could make with and for my girls. I searched the internet and found vegan matzah ball recipes, chocolate covered matzah recipes, and a bunch of other ones that helped get to the point where my kids actually like "Passover food". Here are some ideas for Passover cooking!

Chocolate covered matzahs! This is super fun to make with your kids. Buy fun toppings—the more the better! Melt the chocolate in the microwave in small increments and mix it a few times in between each heating. Have your child then dip each matzah piece in the chocolate, and quickly decorate it before dries. The chocolate dries fast so do one piece at a time. Your kids will have a blast!

Stephanie

We made coconut macaroons together last year. I am not a fan of boxed or canned ones, so I make my own! They come out insanely delicious and are ridiculously easy to make! For the recipe I used, look up Ina Garten's coconut macaroons...you won't be sorry!

Make my girls' favorite: Matzah Pizza! Spread pizza sauce on your choice matzah (I usually buy organic or whole wheat), cover with your choice of cheese (I used an organic Italian blend), add a few spices as needed (I used a bit of Himalayan pink salt and some organic dried oregano), stick it in the oven for a few minutes, and voila!

Here we are making spaghetti squash bolognese. The same goes for when I use zucchini noodles to replace pasta. I always try to serve a protein, a carb, and a vegetable for dinner. On Passover, I use quinoa, sweet and white potatoes in rotation as my carbs. The protein and veggies remains the same.

To see more photos and get some great lunchbox ideas, add me on Instagram@mamamuncheez or check out my Facebook page: Mama Muncheez. Bon Appetit! 22
