JEWISH COMMUNITY CALENDAR 5778 / 2017–2018 Popack-5778-printfile.indd 1

Jewish. Done Joyfully. 8/31/2017 4:33:27 PM


Dear Friend, As we prepare for the High Holy Days, we are filled with thoughts of change, improvement, and good resolutions. We hope this Community Calendar will serve as an inspirationforpositivepersonalgrowth,andhelpustoconnect more with our people, our culture, and our Torah. Let’s make this year our best year ever! Your investment in the Jewish Life Center—Chabad Denver North creates a strong, proud Jewish community in North Denver, where every Jew is welcome. The Jewish Life Center is an independent nonprofit 501(c)3 organization whose primary funding comes from caring and committed people like you. Please consider contributing in the enclosed envelope. Any amount is appreciated and will be put to good use. On behalf of our family we wish you and yours a sweet New Year filled with health, happiness, mazel, and joy.

THIS CALENDAR IS DEDICATED TO THE REBBE The life and teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, have touched millions. The Rebbe’s messages—of belief in humanity and in the ability of the world to become better; and the Rebbe’s emphasis that one good deed, one mitzvah, is of infinite value—continue to inspire uncountable acts of goodness and kindness on every continent. The Rebbe’s passionate and uncompromising love for every Jew is legendary. His insistence that all Jews are equal, regardless of background, affiliation, or level of knowledge and observance; and the Rebbe’s love for G-d and Torah and devotion to the People of Israel are the beacons of truth and love that continue to guide and inspire us at the Jewish Life Center–Chabad Denver North.

L’Shanah Tovah Umetukah,

Rabbi Mendel and Estee Popack Co d i re c to r s

If you see what needs to be repaired and how to repair it, then you have found a piece of the world that G-d has left for you to complete.

The Ten-Point Mitzvah Campaign is a revolutionary approach to Jewish life introduced by the Rebbe in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It presents an opportunity for people to connect to Jewish observance in an individualistic and personal way. As a connection between the human and G-d, each individual mitzvah is a deed of cosmic significance, a deed of infinite value unto itself. So the Rebbe issued a call to every Jew: Even if one is not fully committed to a Torah life, just begin with one mitzvah–its value will not be diminished by the fact that there are others which one is not prepared to do. Each mitzvah can be a short yet meaningful Jewish experience and will allow for a consequential relationship with G-d and Judaism that can have a long-lasting effect.

The Ten Mitzvot

The Rebbe’s Ten-Point Campaign for Jewish Awareness and Observance

Light Shabbat Candles

Women and girls (age 3 and up) are encouraged to light candles every Friday afternoon, 18 minutes before sunset, in honor of Shabbat, and before festivals.

A Home Filled with Holy Books

Furnish your home with as many Jewish holy books as possible.

Popack-5778-printfile.indd 3

Tefillin

Men (age 13 and up) are encouraged to wear tefillin every morning, excluding Shabbat and festivals.

Kashrut

Eating is one of the basics of life. For a healthy and sound soul, eat only kosher foods.

Mezuzah

Every Jewish home should have a mezuzah on its doorposts. The mezuzah contains the Shema and is a sign that the home is sanctified for G-d and enjoys His protection.

Love Your Fellow

The great Jewish sage, Rabbi Akiva, said that“Love your fellow as yourself” is a most basic principle in the Torah. Reach out to your fellow Jew with patience, love, and concern.

Torah

Study a portion of Torah daily. Even a few lines contain the infinite wisdom and will of G-d.

Education

Every Jewish boy and girl should receive a Jewish education. This will ensure Jewish integrity, Jewish identity, and a Jewish future.

Tzedakah

Give charity daily – this will teach you and your children the noble value of regular giving.

Observe Family Purity

Observance of the Jewish marital laws allows you to make the most of your marriage, bringing you and your spouse to new, undiscovered depths of intimacy and sacredness in your relationship.

How to Light Shabbat Candles

‫ב"ה‬

It starts with one light. You can add a candle for your soul mate, and if you are a mother, one for each child. A girl over the age of three may (with some help from Mom) light a candle of her own. To honor the divine spiritual connection of lighting Shabbat candle, we recite a blessing just after kindling your candles, which are lit 18 minutes before sundown. Once the candle(s) are lit, close your eyes, and with your hands gently moving above the flames, motion the warmth toward your eyes three times. Then softly placing your hands over your eyes, pronounce the words that women across the globe have spoken aloud for thousands of years. Uncover your eyes and feel the glow seep through every cell of your being, ushering in a moment of inner peace. Picture a million women like you lighting Shabbat candles all at the same time. Envision the peace of Shabbat radiating across the globe.

Tashlich and Shofar at Westerly Creek

Thursday, September 21 at 5:00 p.m. Join the community for the beautiful and mystical custom of tashlich at Westerly Creek. At the tashlich service, we symbolically cast our sins into the water, starting the New Year with a clean slate. The shofar will be sounded at the banks of the creek.

September 2017 Elul 5777–Tishrei 5778 Rosh Hashanah: Sept. 20–22 Rosh Hashanah celebrates the beginning of creation.

Candle Lighting: We light candles in the evening of Wed., Sept. 20, and Thu., Sept. 21. We make the following blessings both evenings:

1. Ba-ruch ata Ado-nai Elo-henu melech ha-olam, asher kideshanu be-mitzvotav, ve-tzivanu le-hadlik ner shel Yom Hazikoron.

2. Ba-ruch ata Ado-nai Elo-heinu melech ha-olam, she-hechi-yanu ve-ki-yemanu ve-higi-yanu li-zman ha-zeh.

The Shofar: On Rosh Hashanah we hear the sounding of the shofar, the ram’s horn. It is the oldest and most soulful of wind instruments, sounding like a primal outcry from the depth of the soul. Its blasts both signify that we proclaim G-d as King of the universe and awaken us to repent and return to G-d. Tashlich: On the first afternoon of Rosh Hashanah it is customary to visit a natural body of water that contains fish, casting our past sins down the river.

Apple and Honey: Dipping a piece of apple into honey at the first meal of

Rosh Hashanah symbolizes the hope that our new year be blessed with sweetness and goodness. For the same reason, it is customary to eat other sweet foods, such as tzimmes.

Yom Kippur: Sept. 30

Yom Kippur is a 25-hour fast beginning at sunset on September 29, and continuing through nightfall the following night. Although it is a solemn day, it is not a sad day. In fact, in a subtle way, it is one of the happiest days of the year, for we receive one of G-d’s most precious gifts–forgiveness.

Candle Lighting: We light candles Friday night, Sept. 29.

We make the following blessings: 1. Ba-ruch ata Ado-nai Elo-henu melech ha-olam, asher kideshanu bemitzvotav, ve-tzivanu le-hadlik ner shel Yom Ha-kippurim. 2. Ba-ruch ata Ado-nai Elo-heinu melech ha-olam, she-hechi-yanu ve-ki-yemanu ve-higi-yanu li-zman ha-zeh.

December 2017 Kislev–Tevet 5778 8 Days of Chanukah ~ Dec. 12th–20th Chanukah celebrates the miraculous victory of the Maccabees over the Syrian-Greek armies. When the Jewish nation recaptured the Beit Hamikdash, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, they found a little jug with just enough oil to light the menorah for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days until more arrived. The Menorah: To commemorate this miracle, we light the menorah (preferably with olive oil) for the eight days of Chanukah. We light it at night when it shines brightest and we put it in a doorway or window so passersby can share in its light. (On Friday, the menorah is lit before sunset, before the Shabbat candles.) For a Kosher Menorah: All the lampholders of your Menorah should be of even height and in an even line, except for the shamash (service candle) which should be higher than the rest. The optimum place for a Menorah is in the doorway, opposite the mezuzah. Windowsills are good, too. On the first night of Chanukah, light the candle furthest to the left. Each day, add another to the left. Always light the new one first.

To Begin: Hold the lit shamash in your right hand, and recite:

February 2018 Shevat–Adar 5778 Purim Eve: Feb. 28; Purim Day: Mar. 1

Purim commemorates our victory over the murderous designs of Haman. It is observed on the 14th day of Adar. This joyous festival reveals the hidden hand of G-d in the events of man. It is a day to be celebrated by the entire family. We begin the festivities Wednesday evening by listening to the reading of the megillah. There are four mitzvot of Purim:

Listen to the Megillah: To relive the miraculous events of Purim, we listen to the reading of the megillah (the scroll of Esther) on Purim Eve and again on Purim day. Send Gifts of Food (Mishloach Manot): On Purim we emphasise Jewish unity and friendship. Send a gift of at least two kinds of ready-to-eat foods (for example pastry, fruit, beverage) to at least one friend on Purim day. Give Gifts to the Needy (Matanot L'evyonim): Concern for the needy is a year round responsibilty for the Jew. On Purim, particularly, it is a special mitzvah to remember the poor. Give charity to at least two needy individuals on Purim Day. If, however, you cannot find needy people, place at least two coins into a charity box. Eat the Festive Meal: Celebrate with a special festive meal on Purim Day, when family and friends gather together to rejoice in the Purim spirit. Masks and Costumes: The miracle of Purim is unique in that it occurred through natural causes. The sea didn’t split. The earth didn’t shatter. There were no plagues. Had it not been for the daring intervention of Esther, Haman’s plot would have wiped out the entire Jewish population in one day. Queen Esther was in the right place at the right time. The hand of G-d was “masked” beneath the “costume” of natural events. To symbolize this, children, and even many adults, wear face masks or costumes on Purim.

March 2018 Adar–Nissan 5778 Pesach (Passover): March 30–April 7

The eight-day Pesach holiday celebrates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery and the birth of the Jewish nation more than 3,300 years ago. Pesach is rich with traditions that help us achieve “freedom” in our own lives.

Chametz: Food and drink made of leavened wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt, or

their derivatives is called chametz and is forbidden during Pesach. In Egypt, an animal offering was brought on the morning before Pesach, and the chametz prohibition actually begins around that time—midmorning on March 30.

The Seder: On the first two nights of Pesach (Mar. 30 and Mar. 31) we conduct a seder: a festive, yet serious event. Around a table set with the finest crystal and silver and the best kosher wine, we reenact the ancient exodus from Egypt. We think of ourselves as also being in bondage in Egypt, suffering Pharaoh’s oppression, joining the walk out of Egypt and across the Sea of Reeds. Matzah: One of the main mitzvot of Pesach is eating matzah. There is a custom to eat hand-baked shmurah matzah, that closely resembles the bread baked by the Jews at the hurried moment of their exodus.

The Four Cups of Wine: The Torah uses four expressions of freedom in connection with our liberation from Egypt. This is one of the reasons we celebrate the liberation with the four cups at the seder. The Last Day of Pesach: The seder nights emphasized our past exodus as we celebrated the first liberation of the Jewish people from the bondage of Egypt.

As we conclude the festival, we look toward the time when, as we are promised in the Torah, Jews will merit a final redemption from all our oppressors. The eighth and last day of Pesach is traditionally associated with this fervent hope for the imminent coming of Moshiach.

Counting the Omer

After the exodus from Egypt, it took 49 days for the people of Israel to reach Mount Sinai and receive the Torah from G-d. The kabbalists explain that the 49 days correspond to the 49 traits of the human heart. On each day of their original journey from Egypt, the Children of Israel refined one of these traits. Each year, we retrace this inner journey by “Counting the Omer,” beginning on the second night of Pesach and ending before Shavuot.

April 2018 Nissan–Iyar 5778 Kosher What is kosher? Kosher stands for quality, purity, wholesomeness, and truth. The word “kosher” literally means “fit for use,” and fitness–physical and spiritual–is a matter of making the right choices. The kosher laws were not made for physical health, but it comes as no surprise that what is good for the soul is good for the body as well. The body and soul are intimately connected. Kabbalah teaches that whatever happens to the soul is reflected in the body, and the food the body consumes impacts the soul. Throughout our 4000-year history, the observance of kosher has been a hallmark of Jewish identity. Perhaps more than any other mitzvah, the kosher laws emphasize that Judaism is much more than a "religion" in the conventional sense of the word. To the Jew, holiness is not confined to holy places and times outside the everyday; rather, life in its totality is a sacred endeavor. Even the seemingly mundane activity of eating is a G‑dly act and a uniquely Jewish experience.

Why Kosher?

Keeping kosher is a mitzvah, a divine "commandment" and "connection." We eat kosher because G‑d commanded us to, and by fulfilling the divine will we connect to G‑d. Our sages also point out the various advantages of the kosher laws: the health benefits, the humane treatment of animals, their unifying effect on a dispersed people, and their role as a shield against assimilation. Nachmanides, the great 12th-century sage and kabbalist, points out that "the birds and many of the mammals forbidden by the Torah are predators, while the permitted animals are not; we are instructed not to eat those animals, so that we should not absorb these qualities into ourselves." Kashrut can thus be seen as "spiritual nutrition": just as there are foods that are good for the body and foods that are harmful, there are foods that nourish the Jewish soul and foods that adversely affect it. None of the above, however, are "reasons" we keep kosher. Rather, the reverse is true: because it was commanded by the Creator of our bodies and our souls, the kosher way of life will obviously be beneficial to both.

May 2018 Iyar–Sivan 5778 Lag B’Omer: May 3 The 33rd day of the counting period of the Omer (49 days from the second evening of Passover until Shavuot—the holiday on which we received the Torah) is celebrated as a holiday. On this date in the early second century, the students of Rabbi Akiva stopped dying from an epidemic. On this day, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, a Mishnaic sage, mystical thinker, and the author of the Zohar, passed away. Having fulfilled his mission in this world he asked that the anniversary be celebrated as a happy day. Throughout the world, Lag B’Omer is celebrated with festivities and bonfires and serves as an occasion for wedding and bar mitzvah celebrations.

Shavuot: May 20–21

Shavuot marks the day of the giving of the Torah by G-d to the entire Jewish nation, over 3300 years ago. In Hebrew, the word shavuot means “weeks” and stands for the seven weeks during which the Jewish people prepared themselves for the giving of the Torah. During this time they rid themselves of the scars of bondage and became a holy nation, ready to stand before G-d. The giving of the Torah was a far-reaching event that touched the essence of the Jewish soul, then and for all time. Our sages have compared it to a wedding between G-d and the Jewish people: He became our G-d and we accepted the responsibilities of this unique relationship. The Torah, as a marriage contract, spells out the terms of this relationship. It is customary to decorate one’s home with flowers, to remind us of the flowers that blossomed on Mount Sinai when the Torah was given. Another very delicious custom is to eat dairy foods during this festival. Shavuot is an appropriate time to rededicate ourselves to our precious heritage. Many make a point of attending the Shavuot Torah reading with all members of the family, young and old–even newborn children.

Candle Lighting: We light candles after Shabbat ends, Saturday evening, May 19th, and Sunday evening, May 20. We make the following blessings both evenings:

1. Ba-ruch ata Ado-nai Elo-henu melech ha-olam, asher kideshanu be-mitzvotav, ve-tzivanu le-hadlik ner shel Yom Tov.

2. Ba-ruch ata Ado-nai Elo-heinu melech ha-olam, she-hechi-yanu ve-ki-yemanu

June 2018 Sivan–Tammuz 5778 The Three Weeks: July 1–July 22

For eight hundred and thirty years there stood an edifice upon a Jerusalem hilltop, a Temple that served as the point of contact between heaven and earth. So central was this edifice to the relationship between man and G-d that nearly two-thirds of the mitzvot are contingent upon its existence. Over the centuries, the Temple was detroyed, rebuilt and destroyed again. The “Three Weeks” mark a period of national mourning for the destruction of the two Temples, regarded as the greatest tragedy of our history. This is a very sad period during which many of our people’s calamities occurred. During this time we do not celebrate weddings or hold festivities. The “Three Weeks” begin with a fast on the 17th of Tammuz. (This fast is observed this year on Sunday, July 1, because 17 Tammuz is on Shabbat.) The “Three Weeks” conclude with a 25-hour fast on Tisha B’Av, the 9th of Av. Since the 9th of Av is on Shabbat this year, we observe the fast on the next day: Sunday, July 23. There are various mourning-related customs and observances that are followed for the entire three-week period (until midday of the 10th of the Hebrew month of Av, or–if that date falls on Friday–the morning of that day). We do not cut our hair, purchase new clothes, or listen to music. No weddings are held. There is more to the Three Weeks than fasting and lamentation. Our sages tell us that those who mourn the destruction of Jerusalem will merit seeing it rebuilt with the coming of Moshiach. May that day come soon, and then all the mournful dates on the calendar will be transformed into days of tremendous joy and happiness.

July 2018 Tammuz–Av 5778 FAST OF Tisha B’Av: July 21–July 22

Tisha B’Av, the 9th day of Av, is the saddest day of the year. From the beginning of our nation’s history, when G-d decreed on this date that the Jews would wander in the desert for forty years, through the destruction of our two Temples in Jerusalem, to the first crusade, and the liquidating of the Warsaw ghetto during the most recent Holocaust, this date appears as a pivotal point in time. It begins at sunset of the previous evening, when we gather in the synagogue to read the Book of Lamentations. 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. Tisha B’Av has been set aside as the national day of mourning for all of our nation’s tragedies. But within our sadness shines a beacon of hope which will ultimately carry us through. In addition to remembering the many tragic events, this day is used as a day of prayer to the Al-mighty. We pray for Him to bring us the final redemption through our righteous Moshiach and the rebuilding of the Third Temple. There is a famous story about the sage Rabbi Akiva, who visited the ruins of the Temple together with his colleagues. As they began to weep over the destruction of the Temple, Rabbi Akiva rejoiced. Responding to his colleagues’ surprise, he explained that the prophets foresaw the Temple’s destruction and its rebuilding. “Now that I see the first part has been fulfilled, I am certain the second part will be fulfilled as well.” To this they responded, “Akiva, you have brought us great consolation.” May we merit the fulfillment of this prophecy speedily in our days.

August 2018 Av–Elul 5778 Month of Elul When a king returns to his palace, he passes through outlying fields. Anyone may approach him, and he greets all with a shining countenance. Chassidic masters compare the month of Elul to when the “King is in the field”: G-d is available to whomever turns to Him; He graciously accepts all requests. Elul is an appropriate time to reflect on the past year, resolving to correct any shortcomings, turn a new page, and come into the new year with a refreshed perspective and renewed heart.

Some of the observances during Elul: • From the beginning of Elul and throughout the High Holiday season, we include the blessing “May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year” (Leshanah tovah tikateiv veteichateim) in letters and greetings to one another. • We give extra charity and devote more time to studying our tradition and Torah. • In preparation for Rosh Hashanah, we hear the sounding of the ram’s horn shofar each weekday. • We recite Psalm 27 at the end of the morning and afternoon prayers from the first day of Elul through Hoshanah Rabbah (Tishrei 21)–a total of 50 days. • The Baal Shem Tov instituted the custom of reciting three additional chapters of Psalms each day, from Rosh Chodesh Elul until Yom Kippur. On Yom Kippur the remaining 36 chapters are recited, completing the entire book of Psalms. • Elul is the time to have one’s tefillin and mezuzot checked by an accredited scribe to ensure that they are in good condition and fit for use.

Selichot With the imminent approach of the New Year and the Days of Awe, preparations move into highest gear. Several days before Rosh Hashanah, we begin to recite Selichot, a series of penitential prayers and liturgy before the morning prayers.

Please support our advertisers, who make this calendar possible. Popack-5778-printfile.indd 28

According to Ashkenazi custom, the first Selichot are recited on Saturday night after midnight, and a minimum of four days of Selichot are observed. Thus, when Rosh Hashanah begins on a Monday or Tuesday, Selichot begin on the Saturday night a full week and a half before Rosh Hashanah. The Sephardic custom is to recite Selichot throughout the entire month of Elul.
