Bringing Judaism to where you are today The president’s recent decision to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, officially acknowledging Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, was not unreasonable. The change in policy was the fulfillment of President Trump’s campaign promise to reverse the policy of his predecessors, each of whom chose to postpone the move until there was more progress in the peace negotiations between the Palestinians and Israelis. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman criticized the president’s announcement, claiming he asked nothing of Israel in return for the move. One potential concession would have been a pledge to limit the number of new settlements and to cap the growth of those already established on land in the West Bank that might become part of a future independent Palestinian state. Both Republican and Democratic administrations have consistently discouraged the increase in Israeli settlements. Friedman claimed President Trump squandered an opportunity to leverage his decision by failing to press Israel for any concessions. Other opponents of the president’s decision questioned the long-range strategic rationale for the timing of the change, claiming it was no more than a shameful and clumsy attempt to shore up his support among Evangelicals and a handful of Jewish donors. While the president’s critics are not wrong, in the end, I think he made the right decision. As anyone who has been to Israel knows, Jerusalem is the undeniable and irrefutable capital of the Israeli state. The Jewish connection to the ancient city extends back 2,000 or more years to King David who united a divided Jewish kingdom and established Jerusalem as its capital. Jerusalem is mentioned in our daily prayers, and Jews have been making pilgrimages to pray at the Western Wall since 1967 when the Kotel was liberated from the control of the Jordanians, who had denied Jewish access to this holy site. One hopes that with this matter settled, at least from America’s perspective, the ongoing and seemingly intractable strife between Israelis and Palestinians can be addressed. Palestinians need to recognize Israel’s legitimacy and that its capital in West Jerusalem is eternal. And Israelis need to accept the Palestinians’ claim to self-determination and their valid right to their own independent state. While there are compelling arguments on both sides of President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, one can only hope the change in American policy will serve as a catalyst for a renewed drive for meaningful negotiations and a sincere commitment to the pursuit of a lasting peace benefiting both Israelis and Palestinians. Rabbi Robert S. Goldstein


Musical Notes Shalom and Happy 2018! It is amazing how fast the year goes by. We have exciting events coming up for the next two months. On January 26th at 6 pm (not 7!), we celebrate Shabbat Shira, the Sabbath of Song. The name for that Shabbat derives from the Torah portion of that week, B’shalach. The Israelites, when crossing the Sea of Reeds, sang one of the most famous and important liturgical songs in Judaism, the Song at the Sea. In addition to celebrating this Shabbat of song with the Abbas, we will hold a special event that night. The IAC, the Israeli-American Council, is collaborating with us for a “Shishi-Israeli”, an Israeli Friday night experience. Following the service, a special dinner will be served, as well as Shira B’tzibur (sing along session), Israeli folk dancing and kids’ program. This promises to be a great event; hopefully it will emerge as a new annual tradition for our congregation. On February 2nd, we will hold another special Shabbat, the South Church Pulpit Exchange. South Church joins us on that Friday night for the annual pulpit exchange. This is going to be another great musical service as the Soul Sisters lead us in song. In between the two special events we celebrate Tu B’Shevat (January 31st), the holiday for the trees and on February 9th, our 5th Grade will lead us at our first Family Service of 2018. As we celebrate both, the New Secular Year and Tu B’shevat, which counts as one of four New Years in Judaism, I wish you double wishes for the New Years! B’Shira, Cantor Idan Irelander

to create a meaningful space to pray & learn President’s Message Dear Fellow Congregants,

Happy New Year! Wishing you and your families a year filled with good health, happiness and joy. I am feeling excited for all of the wonderful opportunities 2018 brings. As I write this I am just returning from the Union for Reform Judaism’s Biennial in Boston and feel energized about where the future of Judaism is going and the direction of Temple Emanuel. For five days several of us from the board, the Sisterhood and clergy participated in classes and plenary sessions and heard from leaders within the movement and politics talk about the incredible social action, religious and spiritual activities reform congregations are doing every day. We are part of an organization with two million members offering ideas and tools that we plan to bring back to Temple Emanuel in the coming months. Keep an eye out for additional information in the E-news and in the pages of this newsletter for all of our events that aim to inspire and include all ages of our congregation We are fortunate to have a caring and involved community and so many volunteers who work to support Bread and Roses, Project Home Again, Lazarus House, Andover Cares, the International Institute of New England and many other worthwhile organizations. Throughout this past year we have supported those effected by hurricanes and fires and anti-Semitism. One of my goals for the coming year is to put an emphasis on social action/social justice and bring innovative ways we can have a true and lasting impact on our community and the world we live in. If you are interested in getting involved or have ideas, drop me a note. Speaking of social action, I’d like to thank Jon Samel for all of his hard work and energy on putting together the very successful Concert for Puerto Rico featuring Gitit Shoval and her wonderful family. We had over 200 people attend the concert and raised close to $9,000, which helped to buy hundreds of water filter systems for people in Puerto Rico. As many of you know we have been working diligently the last few months under the direction of Marc Freedman to launch the quiet phase of The Campaign for the Generations for our 100th Anniversary. I would like to thank the entire board of governors and the early supporters who have helped us to raise a significant amount. In the coming months you will be receiving information about the campaign and ways in which all past, present and interested members can help us bring Temple Emanuel into the 22nd century. Next time you are in the building take a moment to congratulate Cantor Idan Irelander on being named president of the Cantor Association of New England and Maureen Campbell on becoming a senior member of the National Association of Temple Administrators. We have a lot of be proud of as a congregation and we look forward to seeing you in the coming months. Amy Riemer Temple President

March 15 April 12 May 17 June 15 – Annual Meeting

Creating an inclusive environment for all Executive Director

I have now been a part of this community for a year. My how the time has flown! In the last year I have learned a lot, met many wonderful people, shared in good times and sorrow, and I have seen this community come together. It has truly been a blessing to get to know so many of you, and I hope that I will have the chance to meet all of you in the coming months. I welcome you to reach out to set up a time to chat over coffee. I want to hear what you have to say, what you would like to see, and how you would like to be involved. We are a diverse and inclusive community that we should all be proud of. In the last year we have had many accomplishments. We have launched our Annual Appeal, that we will continue to revisit and revise to make it more effective. We engaged our community through adult education opportunities with our Book Club led by Professor Silverman and our Mussar group led by Rabbi Carol Glass. We made improvements to our technology in the building, including how we see, hear and participate in services. We opened our doors for folks who may have a disability or require accommodations, whether it be learning, hearing, visual, physical or mental. We have welcomed Jews by birth, Jews by choice, interfaith families, the LGBTQ community, and our Merrimack Valley Community at large. Our Preschool has grown and has needed to introduce a waitlist, and our Religious School once again has over 250 children enrolled. We welcome speakers for our Lynch, Shack and Braverman lecture series. We celebrated Chanukah together at our “Friday Night Fever” Chanukah night of music. And we have seen our young adults prosper in their careers, especially Alyson Gerber who wrote the book, “Braced” and had her launch party with us! Temple Emanuel is about the needs of our community. And we will continue to strive to meet you where you are and travel with you along your Jewish journey.


Maureen Chapman

Religious School Director

Pre-School Director Our winter curriculum is in full swing. This December, Chanukah was celebrated by singing songs, playing dreidel and with eating delicious latkes that were generously donated by Sisterhood to our preschool. We have been so fortunate so far this year to have a mild winter that has allowed the children to play outside on our beautiful playground. The Bluebirds and Redbirds are participating in a variety of winter activities including reading “The Mitten” while acting out the story, learning about hibernation, watching an amaryllis grow inside their classrooms and charting its growth in their science journals. We would like to welcome our new families to Yellowbirds this January. The Yellowbird and Chickadee children are just blossoming. They are having fun listening to felt board stories, playing with puppets, collaging and finger painting. Most of all, they love playing with their friends! Our tinker room continues to be a great success. The children are learning the steps toward innovating and inventing. They are planning, designing and building. Their creations are unique and amazing. Parents are invited this January during “Chat with Beth” to a Zumba class led by our own Mary Russo. We will be exercising for fun and then discussing healthy eating. We are so fortunate to have such dedicated teachers at our school that continue to keep our school vibrant and current. Beth Weisblatt

Last week, surrounded by thousands of other Reform Jews from North America and around the world, I participated in the URJ Biennial. I attended informative, interesting and exciting sessions that gave me a fresh perspective on youth, family, and teen engagement. I thought about the incredible work our teachers do in our schools and ways to help us do an even better job. I loved hearing from other educators about what was working and what wasn’t working in congregations of all shapes and sizes from around the country and beyond. Ultimately I was reminded of why the work we do in our religious school is so very important. Rabbi David Stern addressed the audience with a powerful presentation with the tag line “we have company.” When he spoke of “company,” he was referring to the faces of our children who learn to live and love Judaism through programs like our religious school. Rabbi Stern went on to say “even if you think you are an empty nester, or that you have aged out of the responsibility for creating a vibrant youth community in your congregation, you’ve got company”. Stern reminded us that children are not the future, but they are our present. He stressed that “the more we ask them what they think about worship or Jewish learning, the more we put them on search committees and task forces… they will help us be better at what we do.” I have taken Rabbi Stern’s message to heart and already begun talking to our youth. Listening to what is working for them in their Jewish learning journey and how our staff can improve their experience. I am letting students know that as a community, the adults see and hear them, and we know that “we have company.” If you haven’t walked through the school wing lately, I invite you to take a stroll the next time you are in our building. Knock on my door, introduce yourself and come see our students learning and praying together. Share your stories of raising your own children at Temple Emanuel or come read a story to one of our classes. Help us to show our youth the power of our own community. B’Shalom, Betsy Kachel

Honoring our past; remembering who 2020 B’NAI MITZVAH ASSIGNMENTS Once again it is time to assign dates for Bar and Bat Mitzvah, this time for the year 2020! Within the next few weeks, we will take the list (printed below) of our children born in the year 2007, organize them into chronological order and place them on our calendar of available dates. If we have more children than available Shabbat mornings, we will assign doubles to those birthdays that are the closest. We are making available a limited number of late Saturday afternoon Mincha (Havdalah) services as alternatives to the usual Saturday morning service. There will be ONE available per month from late August through June. From among those who request them, we will hold a lottery to determine the families who will have Mincha/Havdalah services. They WILL NOT be assigned on a first-come first-served basis, but only through the lottery. If you would like to take advantage of this potential alternative, please contact Barbara Holstein in the Temple Office by Friday, January 12th via email only at If you have a child born in the year 2007 whose name does not appear on the list below, it is very important that you inform Barbara by January 16th. Also, your child MUST be a registered Religious School student at this time in order to be eligible for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah date. We will be assigning dates in mid-January and while it is easier to make adjustments now, it becomes much more complicated once dates have been assigned. Having an official date for Bar/Bat Mitzvah is exciting and makes it seem as though the event is just around the corner. Enjoy the anticipation! It is a wonderful experience for the entire family! Please feel free to speak with us about your plans and any concerns you may have. It is important to us to help make this milestone as rich for every family as it can be.

TEMPLE EMANUEL CEMETERY YOUR FAMILY COUNTS Call for Details Members and Non-Members Welcome


"Rent an Arrangement"


Plan Without Emotion Pick your Location of Choice Prepare for the Entire Family Support the Tradition of a Jewish Burial

 

Would you like to perform a mitzvah and have the bima look beautiful at your child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah?

Does a family member’s stone need a power washing? Contact Tony Cerro of Fairmount Landscaping, (617) 791-9779 Jon Samel – (978) 474-0810 Beth Shiro – (978) 470-1356

By renting the floral arrangements, you can bring the joy that accompanies a child becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah into another family’s life. All proceeds from rentals help pay for the expense of either a tutor or for a small Kiddush lunch for a family who could not afford to have their child take part in and celebrate this beautiful life cycle event. The rental donation for the floral arrangements is $180 for two, or $90 for a single arrangement.

Mitzvah of the Month

Mitzvah of the Month is a Sisterhood program that was developed to encourage our Temple community to become more involved in helping our town, our nation, and the international community.

How do you get started?

To rent an arrangement, please contact the Temple Office at 978.470.1356. You can also email Barbara Holstein at

Just pick a project and get started. If you need an idea I have a list of projects that may suit you. The last step is to contact Laurie at .
