Rabbi’s Voice

Rabbi Stephen H. Pinsky Dear Friends: Recently a member of the congregation asked me to explain the meaning of the Kaddish prayer and the customs related to it. After a rather lengthy explanation, the member suggested that I share my explanation with the entire congregation by devoting a bulletin column to the subject. Therefore… The Kaddish, first of all, is not written in Hebrew. The language of the prayer is Aramaic, which dates the origin of it to about two thousand years ago. The Kaddish makes no reference at all to death or to the deceased. It is an affirmation of the name of God and praise of God. It is a doxology, the first paragraph of which is similar to what Christians refer to as “The Lord’s Prayer. A fairly precise translation of the Kaddish is found in our new prayer book: Exalted and hallowed be God’s great name in the world which God created, according to plan. May God’s majesty be revealed in the days of our lifetime and the lifetime of all Israel – speedily, imminently, to which we say Amen. Blessed be God’s great name to all eternity. Blessed, praised, honored, exalted, extolled, glorified, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy Blessed One, beyond all earthly words and songs of blessing, praise, and comfort. To which we say Amen. May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us and Israel. To which we say Amen. May the One who creates harmony on high, bring peace to us and to all Israel. To which we say Amen. There are, by the way, several Kaddish prayers recited during the course of a traditional service – we are, of course, all familiar with the Reader’s Kaddish – with only the final one designated as the Kaddish Yatom or the Mourner’s Kaddish. Traditionally only mourners would recite the Kaddish Yatom. In our synagogue, as in most Reform congregations, the custom for the past two generations has been for everyone to rise. First of all, we rise to show that we care. We join with all those who mourn that they not stand alone. Secondly, we stand because of the Shoah – the Holocaust. Too many Jews died for whom there was none to say Kaddish. Entire families, entire villages were destroyed. After Hitler, every Jew became a mourner. Therefore we stand – because we care and because we share. Yours sincerely, Stephen H. Pinsky

The Board of Trustees and my fellow officers and I, combined with Clergy, Senior Staff is ready for the challenges of the times. We are ably supported by two faculties, our administrative and custodial staff to provide our members with an excellent quality of Temple life. Our Committee chairs are all at work planning their calendars for the next fiscal year. The aim is to have the working calendar complete by the close of secular school. I am challenging you, our loyal and unique membership to take steps to bolster our efforts to maintain excellence. You ask: what can I do? My reply: I want you to take the plunge and join a committee; contact the various chairs, contact the officers and continue to contact me with your wonderful suggestions and ideas. If you have a concern, don’t fester, come to any of us with your concern and be willing to work out a solution with us. My home telephone number is not a secret code. I encourage all of you to be ‘Temple Ambassadors’ and help seek and attract members. I urge you to recommend our marvelous preschool programs to friends and neighbors. You don’t have to have a preschooler to talk about what we have to offer. Finally: when I addressed the congregants at my installation in office, I promised that I will maintain the concept of Temple Beth Torah as a ‘family of families’. I haven’t wavered from that. This is my spiritual home. I want the people who enter my home to experience the warmth, kindness, caring and friendship that I offer. B’Shalom,

Louise S. Marks, President

Cantor’s Song Cantor Carrie F. Barry I write to you this month with what I hope will be exciting news. While most of us are still recovering from Passover, behind the scenes at Temple Beth Torah the Cantor is beginning preparations for the High Holy Days. Usually at this time I am compiling my list of potential Torah readers from our many wonderful B’nai Mitzvah students of the year. Mah nishtanah hashanah hazot? What is different this year? In close consultation with the Avodah Committee and our fabulous professional staff, I am writing you to announce that the honor of being a High Holy Day Torah reader is now open to the entire congregation. What does this mean exactly? I will not be making random calls from our membership list. If you have sat in the congregation during the holidays and wished that you could be up on the bimah chanting from the Torah, call me. If you have been waiting for decades to relive the thrill of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah, call me. If you want the challenge of learning a portion of Torah, call me. You need not know trope, the method of reading particular markings and filling in the correct melody, which we use to chant all parts of the Hebrew Bible. For those interested, I will make you a CD of the portion and will give you a photocopy of the text for you to use for practice. The only real requirement is an ability to read Hebrew. Last year at Rosh HaShanah, you heard the special trope for the High Holy Days for the first time at Temple Beth Torah. This melody will be used for both Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur this year. While it is not as familiar to us as the regular Torah chant, it is a haunting and exciting melody and those who learned it for last year really enjoyed the experience of studying their portions. If you think that you have the time and inclination to learn a portion of Torah for the upcoming High Holy Days, please call me at the temple at 561-793-2700 or send me an email at When you call, I will need you to specify whether you will be attending either the early or late services and I will need to know if you have a preference of which day you would like to chant. For me, each year this is a puzzle that takes a bit of time to put together, so I will not be able to give you your portion immediately. You should, however, have it no later than mid-June. I do hope that this is an opportunity that will have many of you excited to take part. I know that, for many, chanting Torah can be exhilarating and spiritual. It gives you a chance to engage in the Days of Awe in a truly unique way. I look forward to hearing from you. B’Shalom, Cantor Carrie Barry

From the Desk of the Temple Educator

Jodi Kaufman

What a wonderful year it has been! Religious School is coming to an end for the school year and I would like to present to you some highlights from the year. Our Kindergarten students have been busy this year, with songs, projects and performances. The Kindergarten class put on a Purim play for their parents and for the First grade class. The Kindergarten has traveled to Israel and shopped in the shuk. They have studied about the Jewish holidays and celebrated Shabbat. They donated tzedakah and bought a net during our Nothing but Nets social justice project. They contributed to Camp Jenny during our Miles for Smiles campaign. They are on their way to bigger and better things next year in the First grade. The First grade class has spent the year creating their own Torah scrolls. They have learned many stories from our Torah and have put together their own scrolls. They put on a Purim play for the Kindergarten class and learned about Jewish holidays throughout the year. They learned some Hebrew and many songs and prayers throughout the year. In the Second grade our students focused on learning about the synagogue. They took a tour of the sanctuary and created their own yad that their parents used to read from the Torah to them during their family education program. The students got to see the Torah scroll up close and hear the Rabbi talk about our special scrolls. The students began learning the Alef Bet and learned prayers and songs with Cantor Barry. Third grade was an exciting place to be this year! They learned about Israel, the Jewish holidays, the Torah and of course Hebrew. They did many projects this year for the holidays. Hebrew is an important part of the third grade year. I hope they third graders keep reviewing the Alef Bet over the summer! Our fourth graders spent the year learning about Jewish lifecycle events, developing their own personal relationships with God, Hebrew and Torah. The students did wonderful projects for each of the holidays and made Matzah pizza as well. They ended the year with a fabulous family education program sharing family stories and history with each other and the other fourth grade families. Jewish values, Israel and torah were on the agenda for the fifth grade this year. Our fifth grade students had a special opportunity this year. They were able to correspond with another fifth grade class in Israel, thanks to Jessica Starkschall and the Bonim fellows. The students exchanged holiday cards, letters and videos with each other. Becoming a mensch was a big part of the fifth grade curriculum this year. The students learned about many Jewish values and learned what it means to be a mensch. The highlight of the sixth grade year was the Immigration Experience. Together with at least five other congregations in Palm Beach County, the students spent a day reenacting life in the shtetl and the immigrant experience. Dressed in period garb, the students visited the butcher shop, the cheder, the tailor and many other places of interest in the shtetl before the “pogrom� sent them all rushing off to America for a better life. The students truly enjoyed the day. Anyone ever watch American Idol? Well our seventh graders all got to participate in their own version of the show, American Jewish Idol. In groups the students chose prayers, studied them, read them and then sung them to a tune of their choice. Be it the traditional melody or Happy Birthday. Several guest judges helped to decide the winners of the contest. The seventh grade studied about the Holocaust, modern topics such as drinking, through Jewish values. I must tell you that the American Jewish Idol competition was definitely one of the highlights of the seventh grade year. As you can see, our students have many opportunities to learn and grow through their Religious School career. Have a wonderful summer! Jodi Kaufman, RJE

May Tot Shabbat & Preschool Teacher Appreciation - 5:30 pm Teacher Appreciation Shabbat – 7:30pm Koboskos’s Creamery VPO Fundraiser NO SCHOOL - Shavuot Character Breakfast and Silent Auction NO SCHOOL – Memorial Day

The children and staff have been so entrenched in preschool activities that one would never know that we are in the last five weeks of school. Returning from Spring Break and our well attended Spring Intersession; the classes have been quite busy learning about Israel Independence Day and taking care of our Earth. On April 21, there was quite a celebration in and around the temple walls as the children paraded and proudly waved their handmade Israeli flags. The yummy blue and white birthday cake made by the children themselves, completed the festivities. On Earth Day, we improved the preschool environment by planting four large black olive trees in our playground. Sara Marcus led the entire preschool community in a ceremony centered on our planet and the need to renew our natural resources. Bob Anderson, of the Village of Wellington Public Works Department, added to the hands on experience for the children by leading them in the shoveling of dirt for each of the new trees. Our sincere thanks to our VPO parents and their fundraising efforts which allowed us to purchase these beautiful trees which not only replenish the environment but also provide added natural shade to our play areas. In order to allow them to share their day and concern for their environment with their families, each of the preschool children went home with a lovely seedling to plant, courtesy of the Village of Wellington. Our last Parent Program of this school year, “It’s Ok To Play,’ was well received by our preschool parents on Wednesday, April 21. Look for more parent programming next year as we will again collaborate with the Alpert Jewish Family and Children’s Services and the Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches to address family needs and concerns. The month of May will bring our fourth and final Tot Shabbat of the year, to be held on May 7, at 5:30pm. Led by Rabbi Pinsky and Cantor Barry, this last Tot Shabbat of the school year, will honor our preschool teachers. We encourage all our young families to join us and please . . .bring your friends!!! The final weeks of school will also be filled with many events and celebrations designed to give recognition to the many individuals responsible for the success of the preschool. Teacher Appreciation Week, Mother’s Day Classroom Celebrations and a Parent-Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast are all being planned to honor some very special people. These individuals are the heart and soul of our school. Their talents, energy and passion leave an indelible mark on the children that walk through these hallways! We are still enrolling children for the 2010-2011 school year. On June 1, 4-8pm we will host Family Central to register eligible children for Voluntary PreK (VPK) for the new school year. If you know someone who may be interested in any of our programs or would like a tour of our school, please call our direct line at 793-2649 or stop by the preschool office. We always welcome visitors to our school and events to see first hand what our wonderful school has to offer. Registration for our “Summer of Fun” Enrichment Camp is in progress. It is not too late for parents to customize the camp program for their child by choosing 2, 3 or 5 day a week programs, full or half day. We will be accepting children from ages 2 to 6 years old to participate in many fun filled activities. Refer a friend and both families will receive fifty percent off the camp registration fee. Free Summer VPK is available to children entering kindergarten in the fall if they have not previously been enrolled in a VPK program during the current school year. SAVE THE DATE – May 23 We are celebrating the completion of our 20th year in the preschool on Sunday, May 23 by bringing back the entertaining and delicious Character Breakfast. Lots of excitement will fill the Social Hall as we dine with our favorite children’s characters. Shhh . . . we may see a princess, superhero and/or a Disney friend or two. Photo ops, face painting, silent auction and more . . . additional information will be forthcoming. Shalom, Sandy Wilensky, Preschool Director

Youth Committee Jessica Starkschall, Alisa Adler and Mandy Rubenstein Temple Beth Torah Celebrates Our High School And College Graduates Class of 2010 We are very proud of all our high school and college graduates. The high school and college graduates of 2010 will receive a special blessing from Rabbi Pinsky during our Shabbat Evening Service at 7:30 pm on May 21, 2010. To commemorate this milestone, the Youth Committee is once again preparing gifts for each graduate. We encourage you to sponsor your own child and to consider sponsoring other students as well for a contribution of $5 each. The money raised is used for the graduation gifts as well as to send holiday and “thinking of you gifts� throughout the year to all of our young adults. We encourage you again to support our youth in wishing them well as they head off to school or embark on their careers. Please watch your weekly e-newsletter and your mail for donation letter requests.


FRIDAY, MAY 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Shavuot is the Jewish festival that celebrates the moment when the Jewish people stood at Mount Sinai, accepted the Torah and entered into a sacred covenant with God. When the Reform Movement created the ceremony of Confirmation nearly two centuries ago, an opportunity for our young people to re-affirm their commitment to Judaism and the Jewish people, Shavuot was the natural choice as the time to hold the Confirmation Service. This year, our Confirmation Service will take place on Friday, May 14th. It will be filled with great beauty and majesty. Confirmands will, of course, take part in leading the Shabbat Eve Service and, most important, will offer their own thoughts about Judaism and about the significance of this moment in their lives. We hope that many in the congregation will come celebrate with our Confirmands and their families and honor the commitment of these young people to the Jewish people and to Judaism. SHAVUOT YIZKOR SERVICE

Wednesday, May 19 at 10:00 a.m.

Yizkor means remembrance and refers to the services which are specifically dedicated to the memory of our loved ones. Yizkor services held on the festivals of Sukkot, Pesach, Shavuot, and of course, Yom Kippur. Shavuot Yizkor Services will take place this year on Wednesday, May 19th at 10:00 a.m. in our sanctuary. Rabbi Pinsky will deliver the Yizkor sermon.
