Rabbi Rabbi Sobel Sobel ‘s ‘s Reflections Reflections Everyone Has a Name Our Jewish community places great emphasis on the power of the “name.” In fact, we make lists and lists of names. The Torah records lists of names, we compile our own lists of names every Yom Kippur on Yizkor, we list names of donors and benefactors. Why do we find names so significant and powerful? Perhaps these questions can be answered if we think of other long lists of names and their significance: on Yom Hashoah (Wednesday, May 4th – see page 6 for details) we reflect on all those who were killed in the Holocaust. In some communities, we read aloud the names of those family members who perished during the Nazi régime. Some might ask “why?” The name is powerful because it survives. We don’t necessarily know the people who are listed in the Torah, or on the walls of the Holocaust Memorial in Washington, or Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, or the many other Holocaust memorials that exist. We don’t know these people, but a name gives them a place in history; an enduring legacy. The events of the Holocaust are given meaning only by remembering the individuals who died during that time. We gather as a community, we remember the names of those who died and we affirm their lives by how we choose to lead our lives. So, names, indeed, are very powerful. A midrash tells us about the significance of our names: “All people have 3 names,” the midrash says, “one which their parents give to them, one that others call them, and one which they acquire themselves. And the one they acquire themselves in most important of all.” The name our parents give us is our special connection to the past, it takes an empty space and fills it with life, life that has been given by those who came before. The name our parents give us tells us that we were not born into a vacuum, but are part of a rich chain of tradition. So how do we honour those who came before us and those who perished during the Holocaust? By giving our names – and their names, meaning through our actions
and aspirations and the way we fulfill them. By the deeds we perform, by the way we live our lives and by our connection to God. Please join us on May 4th for our Temple Isaiah Yom Hashoa Commemoration. Everyone Has a Name: a Poem for Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day.
Everyone Has A Name Poem by the Israeli poet Zelda [translated from Hebrew] Everyone has a name given to him by God and given to him by his parents. Everyone has a name given to him by his stature and the way he smiles and given to him by his clothing. Everyone has a name given to him by the mountains and given to him by the walls. Everyone has a name given to him by the stars and given to him by his neighbors. Everyone has a name given to him by his sins and given to him by his longing. Everyone has a name given to him by his enemies and given to him by his love. Everyone has a name given to him by his holidays and given to him by his work. Everyone has a name given to him by the seasons and given to him by his blindness. Everyone has a name given to him by the sea and given to him by his death.

are a number of links that make this an appropriate text.
It is worth noting that the holiday is called ‘the time of the Giving of the Torah,’ rather than the time of the receiving of the Torah. Our sages point out that we are constantly in the process of receiving the Torah and that we receive it every day, but it was first given at this time, and it is the giving, not the receiving, that makes this holiday significant.
Particularly, the setting of the story is at the harvest time, and Ruth’s conversion to Judaism is seen as analogous to the Israelite’s acceptance of the covenant at Sinai. In addition, King David, that tradition teaches, was born and died on Shavu’ot, is identified in the book as being descended from Ruth. (continued on page 6)

embarking on and gave us ideas to bring back to our
incoming Presidents. About 120 of my peers from across
the country (plus one from Canada and another from the Virgin Islands) came together in Atlanta with URJ staff to learn, share our hopes (and concerns), and pray and study together. It was a moving and rewarding experience. Rabbi Rick Jacobs opened the conference and spoke about the growing influence of the Reform movement as well as the challenges facing us. Those of you who heard him speak here in January know how dynamic he is. A panel
Worship, study, and reflection were interspersed throughout the weekend. It turns out you don’t need a sanctuary to pray. Both our Friday evening service in the outdoor amphitheater and Saturday morning in our main meeting room were incredibly spiritual. Sunday, we had a few closing sessions to make sure that Scheidt is the opposite of Las Vegas – it doesn’t stay in Atlanta but comes back to our congregations.

For me, the big takeaway was the difference between management and leadership, doing things right vs. doing the right things. We need to do less of the former and more of the latter – to look past the present and think about our future.

kept our people together since the beginning of Jewish time. During the counting period we move from our time as an oppressed people enslaved by Pharaoh toward the moment when our people stood at Sinai ready to receive the Torah. Each day of the omer, we can rise a little more from enslavement in our world. Yet again, our tradition gives us a hopeful ritual that gives the opportunity to r eflect upon where we have been and where we want to be.
Of course, the reason for celebrating Shavu’ot goes beyond custom or even history. This festival allows me to remember that Judaism is ultimately based on the notion that I can see myself in a unique relationship with God. A covenant entered into at Sinai creating nothing less than a partnership between God and me. That I am obligated to participate in this process of creating a world redeemed, and that I have accepted the responsibility of teaching the way of justice and righteousness

NEW! A 5-Part Series on Mishkan HaNefesh the Reform Movement’s new High Holy Day Machzor (Prayer Book). Tuesday Evenings: 7 – 8:15 pm Dates: May 17, 24, 31; June 7 and 14 Mishkan HaNefesh, the new Reform machzor, was compiled with great care to meet the needs of the contemporary Reform Jewish community. It reflects the many changes that have occurred over the past decade. Our current machzor, Gates of Repentance, was compiled in 1978. Mishkan HaNefesh was introduced in many Reform congregations this past year to great acclaim. In this 5-part series, we will explore, become familiar and discuss the many aspects of the new machzor. We will see how it differs from Gates of Repentence and learn how traditional prayers are interwoven with contemporary literature and art. RSVP to Morgan: office@TempleIsaiahSB.org
