F R O M T H E D E S K O F R A B B I R O S E N BAU M One episode of the TV sitcom “Friends” centers around a problem between Chandler and one of his co-workers. The co-worker started calling Chandler by the wrong name years before, and Chandler didn’t correct him. On the episode in question, Chandler resists taking on a project with this co-worker because Chandler is 5 Windsor Drive embarrassed that he never corrected him, and preferred that his co-worker never find Charleston, SC 29407 Phone: (843) 571-3264 out that he had been wrong all along. Fax: (843) 402-0844 This kind of dilemma happens in our lives all the time, especially in matters of Email: Jewish knowledge and observance. We may have gone to Hebrew school when we were younger, or we may have gone to synagogue for years, but we still have a hard time Website: remembering and understanding some of our tradition’s basic practices. And, like Chandler on “Friends”, we fear that it is too late to learn them, because we might be Rabbi embarrassed that we didn’t learn the correct way for such a long time. Adam J. Rosenbaum This is the impetus behind a new class that I am starting called “Jewish Religious School Principal Mysteries … Revealed”. On Tuesdays beginning February 18th, I urge you to come to & Ritual Assistant afternoon minyan at 5:30PM, and then stay for snacks and a discussion from Daphne Hubara 6:00-6:45PM. The topics will differ from week to week, but the constant theme will be Office Administrator learning the basics, whether you are new to Jewish observance or you have been too shy Maya Hirsch Kupchik to ask for many years. I hope for this to be an experience in which, regardless of your President age and prior knowledge, you can feel more comfortable in Synagogue and taking part in Stanley Chepenik home observances. President Elect Some of the topics we’ll discuss will revolve around morning and afternoon Jacobo Mintzer minyan and the Shabbat service, since ritual worship remains at the heart of Synagogue 1st Vice President life. But we can also discuss other questions about Jewish observances that take place at Laura Zucker home or when you go out of town. Regardless, I hope that we’ll create an atmosphere in Treasurer which no question is taboo. Michael Schwartz So please join us on Tuesday evenings (see the ad below), to remember that it’s Financial Secretary Suzanne Lynch never too late to feel connected to our beautiful Jewish tradition. Recording Secretary Linda Krawcheck Corresponding Secretary Roxann Spandorfer Parliamentarian Lydia Mandel Past President Ellen S.

What’s going on at morning and afternoon minyan? How can I make our next Passover Seder more creative? What can I do to make our next family milestone more meaningful? Answers to these queries and more will be offered by Rabbi Rosenbaum at

Jewish Mysteries … Revealed! Tuesdays, 6:00-6:45PM, starting February 18th Come to afternoon minyan at 5:30PM, stay for snacks and answers to Jewish questions you’ve always wanted to know but weren’t ready to ask. Topics will include: morning & afternoon minyan, Shabbat services, holiday observance, life-cycle preparedness, and more (including your requests)! ALL ARE WELCOME!


P R E S I D E N T – S TA N L E Y C H E P E N I K This past month we had two long-time members of our congregation die within one week of each other. These sad events, especially coming in so short a period, brought home to me just how important our synagogue community is. Make no mistake, we are a community. We draw together in times of sadness to give comfort to all of our families, all of us, not just the deceased members’ families. Not just in sad times, though, but also for joyous occasions such as Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Weddings, Baby Namings, Wedding Anniversaries, Birthdays, etc. Our synagogue is the place we come together to mourn our losses and celebrate our happiness. We all must contribute to keep the doors open. This may mean volunteering and yes, even making monetary contributions. It also means participating in events as well as attending services and Minyan. We can all do our part to keep our synagogue - our community - strong, growing and moving forward. And speaking of moving forward, the Strategic Planning Committee is up and running under the chairmanship of Scott LeRoy. This is the right time for this initiative as we have a good foundation within the synagogue with no crises that require all our energy. This is the time to concentrate on our long term goals and develop the plans needed to take us to what’s euphemistically titled “the next level.” There’s no hidden agenda here. You, our congregants will be an integral part in developing the Plan. We will seek your input and keep you informed. So please give us your insights, concerns, and feedback when asked. Just remember, this is an iterative process that will take some time. The goal is to complete it by the end of this coming Fall. If it takes a bit longer, so be it. The goal is to have a useful long range road map to the future. One that will work and that our congregation is invested in. I promise we’ll keep you informed. One of the things I find encouraging goes back to the Saturday that we filled the Bima with new members. We had a nice mix of both young, middle aged and older families being introduced to the congregation. What a wonderful way to greet our new congregants. We intend to do this whenever we have new members. Hopefully it will always be a large group! I look forward to seeing any and all of you at services and having an opportunity to speak with you when I do.

Help us welcome our newest members at our NEW MEMBER SHABBAT Saturday, March 22nd at Shabbat Services– 9:30AM New members will be introduced and receive a welcome gift. We hope you will be able to join us!

New From Sisterhood: Interested in a Rosh Chodesh study session every month? Rosh Chodesh is the beginning of the new month. It is recognized as a women's holiday. It is considered a reward because the women in the desert refused to give up their gold for the Golden Calf. It is usually a time when women get together to have fun, to learn and/or just be themselves. If you are interested, please contact Gloria Adelson at Why not have fun while learning?

Hanna Raskin, Post & Courier Food Critic, Visits Synagogue Emanu-El Sisterhood How does someone become a food critic? How do food critics visit restaurants without getting special treatment? How is it possible to evaluate food that you grew up not liking? How does a food critic make her descriptions come to life for the reader? Please join us on February 5th for a dessert reception to hear Hanna Raskin, the new Post & Courier food critic address these questions and many more. Hanna came to Charleston from Seattle and has been widely recognized by organizations ranging from the Association of Food Journalists to the James Beard Foundation.
