A Message From Gary Hyman, President REPRINT: This letter was originally sent via email to the Congregation Shaarey Zedek distribution lists on March 10, 2021

With mixed emotions, I write to let the congregation know that Ian Staniloff will be leaving his position as Executive Director, when his current contract expires at the end of June.

campaign for the upcoming renovations to the synagogue. He will also help train and mentor his replacement. A search committee has been formed to identify our next Executive Director in a timely way.

I want to congratulate Ian on his years of service to the synagogue. He has been an outstanding Executive Director for over 12 years, taking Shaarey Zedek to new heights in this fast moving, challenging world, including the tenures of Rabbis Green, Pinsker, Leibl and Mass. In that time, Ian has consistently put the welfare of our congregation first, acting as a supportive ear for congregants and staff alike.

Once the pandemic is over and it is safe to gather, the Board will arrange a celebration honouring Ian. From the Board of Directors, we congratulate Ian and wish him all the best. Gary Hyman President president@szwinnipeg.ca

My fondest memory is of Ian during our High Holy Day services, when he approached every congregant – all of whom he knew by first name -- with his affectionate smile, wishing them a happy new year. While the High Holy Days are among the busiest and most hectic times for the Executive Director, Ian ensured they were also among the most joyous for the congregation. Fortunately for all of us, Ian will not be leaving the synagogue when his time as Executive Director comes to an end. He will remain as the administrative head of the L'Dor Va'Dor campaign, our major fundraising

Dear Little One

A Message From Rabbi Matthew Leibl Photo credit: Elaine Halpert

A few months ago, a good friend of mine and his wife welcomed their first child – a boy – and held a naming ceremony over Zoom for family and friends. They wrote a letter to their son to explain his names. I thought that was so clever and so special. When Heather and I welcomed our second son this year, I found inspiration in my friend’s letter and wrote one of our own. (Keep in mind, when we read this at the Bris, no one knew his name yet. We had kept it a secret for the full week. Even from our mothers.) _____________ Dear Little One, You are Jewish. And in Jewish tradition names are very important. Names help us honour people who mean a lot to us. Very important people. People in our families. Often people who aren’t with us anymore, but whom we want to remember. And emulate. Seven years ago when your mother and I got married, Mom had all her grandparents in her life. But since then, we’ve lost three of them and we want you to know – your names help us remember all three. Oma Ingrid Neufeld. Opa Fred Neufeld. And Grandpa Frank Wadsworth. Oma was your Oma’s mom. She was larger than life and one of a kind. She loved adventure and laughing and things that were kind of crazy and talking a lot and church and family. And butter. You will hear lots of funny stories about her as you grow

up and how she was a great matriarch of a truly great family. She would have loved you and you would have loved her. Your middle name is Isaac for her. Isaac comes from the Bible – which Oma would have absolutely gone crazy for. From Yitzchak, which means, “He will laugh.” So that’s your Hebrew name. Yitzchak. Also for her. Opa was your Oma’s dad. We lost him just a few months ago. He was the perfect complement to Oma. Quiet, softspoken, gentle, serious, thoughtful, kind, and under-ratedly funny. He was the patriarch of a truly great family and we miss him very much. Grandpa was your Gido’s dad. He was clever, well-read, and unassuming. Loved history and the world – which he taught about for years and later explored. He loved to read and loved to learn. He enjoyed telling stories and also had a great laugh. His story actually began in Manitoba and he spent his younger days right here in Winnipeg. He would have loved knowing his greatgrandson in Winnipeg was named for him. For Opa and for Grandpa, for Fred and for Frank, your first name is Felix. It’s from Latin and it means “Happy” or “Fortunate”. Which is exactly how you make us feel, to join our family as our second son. You are named for people in Mom’s family, in the style of how people are named in my family. Which is what Mom and I are always trying to do – blend both of our family traditions together. That’s why we wanted to give you a second Hebrew name, a middle Hebrew name, to match Felix, the

way Yitzchak goes with Isaac, even if we switched the order. But that’s allowed. I had a Bar Mitzvah student who did that once and I thought it was quite brilliant. Especially because your Hebrew middle name is a little out there. That’s also part of why we didn’t make it your first name.

Happy Pesach!

It’s out there because it’s not really Hebrew. It’s actually Yiddish. Yiddish is the language your Super Baba taught at Peretz School and loves very much. Yiddish isn’t very popular anymore, but it used to be a big part of Jewish tradition and it’s important to remember things like that. Your Hebrew / Yiddish middle name is Feivel. It means “Bright”, which we thought fit perfectly with Yitzchak, Isaac, and Felix. Happiness. Good fortune. Laughter. All things that are bright. (It’s also the name of a very famous cartoon mouse from two animated movies from when your Mom and I were kids which we would be thrilled to watch with you some day.) Feivel is special and unique. Just like you. We think it’s absolutely awesome and we hope you do, too. (But if you really don’t like it, don’t tell anyone and just go with Yitzchak – it’s your call!) So that’s you. Felix Isaac. Yitzchak Feivel. Oh right – one last thing. Your mom comes from a family of three sisters and her last name is very important to her. So you have a second middle name and it is Mom’s last name – Wadsworth.

From Purim to Pesach

Photo credit: Elaine Halpert

A Message From Rabbi Aníbal Mass According to the Rabbis, we should start preparing for Passover as soon as the holiday of Purim is over. This is an attempt to link the two holidays as if they were, somehow, connected. This reminds me of the tradition to start the building of the Sukkah as soon as Yom Kippur is over. Many people come home from Shul after a long Neila to place the first nail of the Sukkah. We can understand the desire to connect Yom Kippur with Sukkot since the High Holidays season doesn’t end until Hoshana Rabbah, which is the last day of Sukkot. But what can we say about the commonalities or linkages of Purim and Pesach. They seem to be totally opposite festivals. Purim is a day where everything is hidden: The name of God is not mentioned in the book of Esther. People, like Mordechai and Esther, are the ones that bring deliverance to the people of Israel. Esther doesn’t even mention to the king that she is Jewish. Events seem to be random. However, Pesach is all the opposite: God is ever present, the name of Moses is omitted in the Haggadah to highlight the Divine deliverance of Israel. Everything is a constant reminder that people are Jewish. And yet, the Rabbis insist that they are connected. In fact, they are so deeply connected that they represent two sides of the same coin.

The Torah prophesizes in Deuteronomy 31:18, “But I (God) will be hiding my face from them because of all the evil they will have done in turning to other gods.” The results of that prophesy can be experienced in the Book of Esther, where God is hidden. God is not missing, just hidden; if you know where to look you can easily see the presence of God in the entire Book. Our lives mimic the Book of Esther where God is also hidden. We need to work hard to be able to see God in our world. In other words, Purim and the Book of Esther help us to find God in our reality. But Pesach, with all the great miracles: the plagues, the crossing of the Sea, etc. invites us to dream with a better reality, with a world where God doesn’t have to hide anymore. This sentiment is represented by the Cup of Elijah, that one cannot drink from quite yet, until the time where we can partner with God to redeem this world. Purim helps us navigate our reality, but Pesach shows us the way to change our reality, encouraging us to dream of a different kind of world, where we won’t need to struggle to experience the divine but the divine will be unmistakably felt everywhere we go. Ashira, Ronen and I wish you all a Chag Pesach Kasher v’Sameach

Purim represents our reality; Pesach represents our aspirations.

Let Freedom Ring!

A Message From Dr. Rena Secter Elbaze,

Engagement and Education Director What makes us FREE? I have been doing some reflecting back to this time last year when we were trying to figure out how we would adapt and move forward with all of the constraints and unknowns that were brought on by the newly declared pandemic. I feel great pride for what we have been able to accomplish given all the obstacles that were thrown our way AND that in the process we were able to continue to Uplift! and inspire those around us not to lose hope. Passover is actually very much a celebration of this phenomena …FREEDOM… overcoming huge obstacles, taking control of our destiny, and staying optimistic about the future. This has been the leitmotiv of the Jewish people since we left Egypt all those generations ago! Passover is a celebration of overcoming the bonds of slavery in all its forms. From being in a state of physical “bondage”, to lingering in state of inertia and uncertainty, “slavery” prevents us from planning for the future and taking control of our destiny. The physical and emotional “bondage” of the successive lockdowns and the isolation that many of you experienced over the cold winter months were significant challenges. This Passover we should be celebrating how we took back our FREEDOM by taking these obstacles and transforming our uncertainty into new ways of coming together to celebrate our milestones and festivals. This winter we made it our mission to overcome the constraints of the lockdown by bringing you some exciting Adult Education opportunities where

our impact was significantly increased by the virtual platform. Although we could not host our community in our physical building, people from all over the World have been able to get to know us and join our online programs including our Hebrew Reading Course, Workshops for adults and families with young children, as well as our Speaker Series. Our Hebrew Reading Course in partnership with NJOP was attended by 26 students who met weekly for six weeks in the fall and then again over the winter months for a seven-week intensive series. Most of these students have already signed up for a six-week grammar course this spring and the special Passover Haggadah workshop on March 23rd. Our Adult Education and Engagement Department brought together Young Adults from Winnipeg and Montreal during the winter for an online Havdallah Party and more recently on Purim for an online gaming night. Leslie Emery in conjunction with PJ Library hosted programs for families over Purim and has another event scheduled to help get into the spirit of Passover this coming March 21st. Leslie has also been hosting an online gathering for our Minyanaire community to help them stay connected to the synagogue and to each other. Our Speaker program kicked off in January with a three-part series on Jewish Biomedical Ethics first featuring ex-Winnipegger guest speaker Rabbi Steven Wernick from Toronto and then, Marcello Mass from Argentina hosted by our own Rabbi Anibal Mass and Dr. Rena Secter Elbaze. The series was widely attended live by over 100

people at each weekly session from Winnipeg and beyond. The number of views since the program was first aired has surpassed 1.5 K. In early February, we hosted a special program with celebrity Psychotherapist and Sex Therapist Beatty Cohan MSW, LCSW, AASECT. Beatty who grew up in Winnipeg, reached out to us after coming back to our virtual Minyan to honour her mother’s yahrzeit . Our Minyan which literally acts as a “window to our soul” has brought many ex-Winnipeggers back to Shaarey Zedek including Beatty. Beatty, whose mother Mrs. Sair, taught for many years at the old Talmud Torah, rekindled many connections here as we prepared for the event with our partners: Shaarey Zedek Sisterhood, Jewish Child and Family Service and the Jewish Post and News. The session Never Make a Mistake in Love Again attracted over 100 views when it was live streamed and has since been viewed by over 900 people. Another uplifting partnership event that helped bring us through the winter was our celebration of Tu B’Shevat with Bridges for Peace, Emuna Israel and Adas Yeshurun Herzlia. In honour of the Jewish New Year for Trees, we baked challah, sang, danced and learnt about the holiday and the incredible work that Emunah Israel does for the underprivileged in Israel. Our Tikun Olam committee also worked hard this winter to uplift the underprivileged in our local community. This winter we organized a collection of food gift cards to support West Broadway Ministries and Jewish Child and Family Service. More recently, we undertook a campaign to provide breakfast for the full month of March to a homeless shelter. Our campaign to raise $1800 was reached and surpassed in a few short days to over $3700 and we were able to bring some comfort in a great time of need. It IS possible to take back our FREEDOM by taking action in areas where we do have control and not worrying about that which is beyond our control.

Sisterhood

Louise Raber, Sisterhood, Co-President As I write this column I realize it’s a year since our lives changed. No meetings, no in person interaction! But Sisterhood is still around and has a presence at Shaarey Zedek. Thanks to Zoom, our new Book Club facilitator Rhonda Youell, organized a successful meeting in November with 9 people attending. They read “Waking Lions”. They all agreed it was a success, and another meeting is planned for April 14 @ 2:00 for 1 1/2 hours. “The World We Knew” by Alice Hoffman will be reviewed. To attend, there is no fee, all we ask is that you are a paid up member of Sisterhood (a minimal cost of $36 per year). If you wish to participate, call Inna at Shaarey Zedek to register at 204-452-3711. She will need your email address and phone number so that Rhonda is able to reach you.

and raised Beatty (Sair) Cohan. Beatty is a Psychotherapist and Sex Therapist. Her topic, “Never Make a Mistake in Love Again” was very interesting and well received by over 100 people from all around the world. As one Sisterhood member said “after over 50 years of marriage, I learned something new”! Keep your eyes open for your virtual Torah Fund Annual “Tealess Tea” invitation, chaired by my co-president and Torah Fund chair Sandy Polanski. Hopefully, the time is near when we can all meet face-to-face once again (even if it’s on a lawn chair in the SZ parking lot). Take care one and all, be well and enjoy Pesach as best you can. Chag Pesach Sameach!

On February 16, Sisterhood was one of the sponsors, with Shaarey Zedek, Jewish Child and Family Service, and the Jewish Post and News, of a fascinating event featuring Winnipeg born

Olam Initiative to raise funds to provide 30 breakfasts for each day of March, 2021 – 930 meals ($1800).
