and the love thaitality, the energy, t filled the villa ge. Shalom Everyone, I hope that the Jewish New Year has started off sweetly, healthily, and happily for you and your family. As we begin October, we also have just begun the holiday of Sukkot. Sukkot is a festive time of year for the Jewish community and is often referred to as Z’man Simchateinu (time of our happiness). To celebrate our joy, we are asked to live outside in booths and appreciate nature while celebrating the beginning of the harvest. As one of the three pilgrimage holidays, Sukkot allows us to celebrate our first plantings as well. In fact, this season is filled with new beginnings. We just celebrated our Jewish New Year and started 5778 with prayer and introspection. Yom Kippur provided us with a chance to clear the slate and start the year with good intentions that provide us the ability to perform positive actions in our lives. Sukkot allows us to demonstrate these newly promised intentions. Finally, we end and begin the Torah together during Simchat Torah. What have we done in the last few days since the conclusion of Yom Kippur? Have we actually started to make the changes that we promised? Sukkot is our first chance to take action. Here is our first opportunity to fulfill all of our repentant vows. What new beginning will you discover? What old habits might we want to start to break? Amidst all of our beginnings, how might we see the world with ‘renewed’ eyes? “There once was a man who had given up on life. He found no joy in his work, his family, or his community. And so he prayed to God to let him leave this world. “Show me the way to paradise!” he implored. God asked him, “Are you sure that’s what you want?” The man replied, “I am sure with all my heart.” “Very well,” replied God, who showed him the way to paradise. As it turned out, paradise wasn’t that far away-just a few days journey from his village. So late one afternoon he set out on his way. He walked until nightfall and then decided to take a rest beneath a leafy tree. Just before he fell asleep, it occurred to him that in the morning he might become confused and forget which was the way to paradise and which was the way back to the village. So he left his shoes by the roadside, with the tips pointing to paradise so that in the morning all he had to do was jump into his shoes and continue on his way. But sometimes unexpected things happen. His shoes got turned around. Was it an angel? Was it a squirrel? Who knows? But somehow the man’s shoes got turned around. In the morning he rose feeling rested from his sleep, ate from the fruit of the tree, and prepared to set off on his journey. He went to the roadway, stepped into his shoes, and began walking-unaware that he was in fact returning home.

By noon he could see a village on the next hillside, and his heart leapt. “I’ve arrived in paradise!” he thought. He ran down into the valley and up the hill, not stopping until he had arrived to the gates of the village. “What a beautiful place is paradise!” he thought. “My village was always so crowded, so noisy. This is different, so filled with life and joy!” He heard the songs the children sang at school and the sounds of the adults at work. He felt the vitality, the energy, and the love that filled the village. He thought, “Since paradise looks so much like my village, I wonder if there is a street in paradise like my street.” And so he went to look. Just where he thought it would be, there’s where he found it. Then he thought, “I wonder if there is a house in paradise like my house.” And just where he thought it would be, there it was. Just as he was wondering about this marvelous coincidence, a woman came to the door--a woman who bore a striking resemblance to his wife. The woman called his name and asked him to come in for dinner. His heart leapt. “They know me in paradise! There is a place set for me in paradise!” “I don’t know what’s in paradise, but your soup is getting cold at home,” the woman responded. He entered the house. This house in paradise was nothing like his house in the village. This place was cozy and homey and filled with life. He sat at the table and had the best meal he’d ever had. After he complimented the woman on the heavenly soup, he went upstairs to the bedroom and entered the deepest sleep he’d ever known. In the morning the woman who looked like his wife handed him his tools and sent him to work. At first he was incredulous. Who ever heard of working in paradise? But, he found the work was different from the work in his old village; it wasn’t dull or tedious, instead it filled him with a sense of purpose. At night he returned home to the same cozy house with the wonderful woman and the delicious soup. Do you know that in all the years that followed, no one could convince the man that he hadn’t made it to paradise. Every one of his days from then on was filled with more wonder, more purpose, more joy, and more life than the day before.” How can we make all of our moments like paradise? As we begin our New Year, in what ways can we start fresh? How can we see the world with renewed lenses? Lisa, Aviv, Leor, and I wish you all a Happy Sukkot, happy beginnings, and a chance to happily turn our shoes around.

To recap, on Monday, September 25th, we had our annual Kickoff event at Duffy’s Sports Grill. Thank you to Barry Glick, who as he does every year, organized an amazing night. Over 30 guys attended and we enjoyed a night of socializing, watching football and eating some tasty hors d'oeuvres. Next, we celebrated Sukkot in a few different ways.

Educating Ourselves To Understand and Inform The Next Generation A MUST for all parents of teens to attend an informative conversation Sponsored by the URJ South Florida Community 13 Reasons Why, the miniseries from Netflix quickly became an overnight sensation among teens all over the world. The series is filled with painful stories about depression, bullying, rape, and suicide. How do we educate ourselves to deal with our teens compassionately and effectively? How do we, as parent/caregivers start the conversation with our kids? What resources are available to teens who are grappling with these issues? Our teens need to know their parents and Jewish community are there for them as a sounding board and for guidance.

I have taken the liberty of foregoing my regular space for my Shelanu column to take a minute (and I hope you will all read this!) to say thank you. While the anticipation of our first hurricane approached since we moved here 6 years ago, I was faced with not only preparing for my own house in Delray but our entire CBI facility.

are just a few issues Todd Shore and his maintenance team faced as we started to put CBI back together. And we were lucky…. The vendors we contract with cleared the parking lot of trees and debris, and congregant , Greg Jacob, volunteered many hours of his time to put CBI back on its regular schedule.

While my wife Debbie was instrumental at home in getting all the necessary prepared items needed for home, it was only with the help of your incredible staff at CBI that prevented even more damage and a slow clean up to take place. The meetings before the hurricane included clergy and facilities team members. Security and staff were brought in to establish messages to the congregation along with our procedures once the storm hit, and how we would react during and after to check with each other to make sure all were safe. Coordination and communication with lay leadership to inform them of what plans we were taking was smooth and seamless.

On top of all this was moving forward with High Holiday preparation which without the many volunteers and our staff, services would not have been as smooth as they turned out. I am a major proponent of teamwork and that is exactly what happened as CBI moves forward into 5778. So thank you to one and all who helped us prepare, get through, recover and move on quickly but efficiently to our normal process of business as usual. It is an experience and act of collective human kindness and generosity I won’t soon forget. As Rabbi Silvers said from the Bimah, if you see a staff person, say thank you for all they do to keep CBI moving forward and keeping us a warm and welcoming place. Finally, I thank all of you for allowing me to be your Executive Director and for being a part of this terrific and spiritual community.

No one really knew how much advance work and post storm efforts were needed for us to open our facility the following Monday. The details of lost power, c o m m u n i c a t i o n systems, A/C panels ripped off and needed repairing

. .. ll a d n a e n o g Callin There is nothing like the theater and there are probably no words that describe it better than the famous words by Irving Berlin:

There's no business like show business like no business I know Everything about it is appealing, everything that traffic will allow Nowhere could you get that happy feeling when you are stealing that extra bow There's no people like show people, they smile when they are low Even with a turkey that you know will fold, you may be stranded out in the cold Still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold, let's go on with the show We are going to go on with the show and bringing the theater to CBI. For the very first time we are going to put on our own full theater production and on October 22nd at 12:30 (confirm time) we will be holding auditions. What’s the show…..ANNIE! There’s a little twist though! Our show will be a parody called ESTIE and curtains will go up on February 28th for PURIM! We will put up a stage, have lights, sound and costumes. We need children and adults to audition. We will also need stage hands, costume mistresses or misters and all sorts of other help.

One thing I know for sure, we are going to have a GREAT time! Please join us we would love to have you!

CBI'S

SPOTLIGHT Rebeca Rosenblatt As the crowds leave and the halls empty out I am compelled to tell someone about my chills today! In August of 1996 I began my first job here at B’nai in Youth Lounge 2. I worked as head teacher in the turning threes and fell in love with all that CBI had here….the school, the staff and the synagogue. As I start my 22nd year here I walked into Room 120 (old youth lounge 2) this time to visit my grandson at his turning threes orientation. He was there with his mom, dad and sister…..I looked at the chalkboard and reminisced how my son in-law proposed to Amanda in this room…..the very room she taught pre-k in, and now we are all standing in 120 as a bigger family attending orientation. In the 21 years here these walls kept in all the love and laughter that cbi brought to me and my family. I am thankful and grateful to continue to be here! Thanks for listening to my story today…..who would have thought that this place holds so much of my families story….. if walls could talk!

Doni Zasloff & Eric Lindberg

NEFESH MOUNTAIN COMES TO CBI 20

COME BE INSPIRED

Jewish Spirit and Appalachia n traditions beautifully me et on common g round.


Nefesh Mountain

are the pioneers of a new sound where Jewish Spirit and Soul meet with Bluegrass and Old-time musical traditions. Founders, husband and wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff, blend their love for both of these rich traditions and have created new genre that marries these two seemingly disparate worlds. Since the recent release of their Debut album with bluegrass greats Sam Bush, Mark Schatz, Scott Vestal, Rob Ickes, and Gary Oleyar, they are winning the hearts of audiences nationwide. “There is common ground here,” says Lindberg, “for centuries Bluegrass and Old Time music have been embracing the Old Testament, and through the years have created a powerful vehicle for spirituality and expression.” The origin of Bluegrass music itselfbegan as a melting pot, fusing African instruments and sensibilities, with that of Western Europe and the Scotch/Irish traditions. Zasloff adds, “Today, Bluegrass music is an outlet for so many cultures and their own traditions to come through. I can fall in love and connect with Chinese, African American, or Irish cultures though the music. Likewise, as Jewish Americans, we want to share our background with the world through the art of Bluegrass.” “Nefesh” is a hebrew word which loosely translates as the soul or animating spirt of all living things. The Mountain is a cross-cultural symbol used widely in Jewish text as well as in Bluegrass and Old-Time musical forms. “We’ve found that another commonality is that both traditions unapologetically celebrate and honor our natural world.” says Zasloff.
