“Meeting you where you are”
BULLETIN Summer 2018 | Tammuz/Av/Elul 5778 Volume XLX, No. 1 The Yiddish word for synagogue is shul, which means “school.” Much of what we do is teach Judaism to children and adults—our culture, our history, our values. Yet another name for a synagogue is kahal, a “sacred community,” where friendships are created and strengthened. A synagogue needs schools and adult education programs to fulﬁll its mission. However, if we did not ﬁnd our relationships deepened and our lives richer because of the people we have met within the walls of our synagogue, there would be no reason for our Temple to exist.
There is an expression from the Mishnah, a compendium of Jewish law compiled in the second century, that states, “ain
chemach, ain Torah…without sustenance, there is no Torah.” In other words, for a synagogue to function there must be resources. But those resources are not just dollars and cents (although those are important to keep the heat and lights on!). They are also found in the valuable relationships and human interactions that develop because of our community. In anticipation of the Temple Emanuel Hundredth Anniversary Capital Campaign, we have held a few “parlor meetings.” (There will be more in the months to come – please contact the ofﬁce if you’re interested in attending one.) In these small informal gatherings, temple members talk about our objectives and the reasons for the campaign.
Rabbi Robert S. Goldstein
What we hear over and over again is the central role the Temple plays in people’s lives. A non-Jewish father spoke about the warm welcome he received when he and his Jewish wife joined the Temple, how We have intentionally targeted a diverse much he enjoys the services and how group of congregants; some long-time accessible he ﬁnds them. Another couple members, others recently joined, to learn told of moving to the Merrimack Valley not from them about the role the Temple plays knowing a soul! They immediately enrolled in their lives now and their vision for the their young children in the Temple prefuture of our congregation. We have school, made deep and lasting friendships spoken to empty-nesters and parents with with the parents of their children’s children in our pre-school. Some who have classmates, and now consider their Temple participated in these initial discussions are friends to be their extended family with single, others married. In the case of whom they travel, celebrate Jewish married couples, some are both Jewish, in holidays and over the years have more than a few cases one of the partners supported each other during times of was not born Jewish, but chose to raise difﬁculty. their children in the Jewish faith.
Soon enough we will gather for the High Holy Days. I am certain the music will be inspiring, as it always is, and the prayers evocative and meaningful, but in truth, our strength is in our community. When we share our lives, create enduring friendships and support one another, we create a synagogue. I hope you enjoy the waning days of summer. And in the not-too-distant future, I look forward to being with you as we gather for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as one compassionate, caring and sacred community. Warmly,

Kayitz sameach v‘nayim, a happy and a pleasant summer! Summer is a time when we rejuvenate our “human batteries” and prepare ourselves physically and mentally for another busy year. As a tradition, my family and I are travelling to Israel, visiting our family and friends. Since Israel is a Jewish state, every Jewish holiday and special times of the year are being observed throughout the country. During the summer, there is a special three weeks period that leads us to the observance of Tisha B’Av, the Ninth of Av (this year it falls on July 22nd). This period is called Bein Hametzarim, the “time between the Straits.” Bein Hametzarim reminds the Jewish people of the period between two major Jewish historical tragedies; the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Holy Temple. The term Bein Hametzarim comes from the book of Lamentations that we read on Tisha B’Av and which states, “All (Zion’s) pursuers
overtook her between the Straits.” Since it is a period of reﬂection and mourning for Jewish people in Israel and around the world, observant Jews are forbidden from “joyous” activities such as weddings (and other celebrations) as well as playing or listening to music. My younger sister had a baby girl recently and since a baby naming
ceremony is considered as a joyous occasion, she had to wait until July 23rd, the day when Bein Hameitzarim/Tish B’Av period is over, in order to celebrate the baby naming ceremony. Our “music batteries” are being emptied during Bein Hameitzarim. In doing so, it allows us to fully recharge them in time and get ready for the uplifting beautiful, powerful and inspirational music of the High Holy Days. I am looking forward to collaborate again with our soloist, Gitit Shoval, and the great singers and musicians. I am also looking forward to listening to our post B’nai Mitzvah Torah readers as well as the upcoming B’nai Mitzvah V’Ahavta chanters. Just by mentioning the High Holy Days’ music and the above participants it makes me already feel spiritually uplifted and recharged. B’Shirah

Each year I am amazed by our community and I reﬂect on how privileged I am to be a part of our largest Reform temple north of Boston. Temple Emanuel was founded by 27 people on June Maureen 23 of 1920. Nearly 100 Chapman, years ago, those Executive families understood Director the need to have a Chavurah, a group of families who gathered to celebrate Shabbat and experience Judaism together. They felt a strong connection, almost a responsibility, to support a Kehillah, a sacred community, which we now know as Temple Emanuel.
We started from humble roots and together embarked on the journey to build a temple in Tower Hill of Lawrence. Fast forward almost 60 years, the congregation made the difﬁcult decision to move from their ﬁrst home, to our current location in Andover. Here they opened our Preschool. The Religious School continued to thrive and they continued to celebrate, mourn and pray together as one.
learning, community and spiritual growth. We want to build a community based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice,” rings true to who we are and who we strive to be.
And we have renewed our commitment to Tikkun Olam by reviving our Social Action Committee. I can see that with the work we This year we witnessed our congregation do here, and the lessons we teach our celebrate births, Consecration, Bar and Bat youth, we are sowing the seeds of our Mitzvahs, Conﬁrmation, Adult B’Nai future, not only of Judaism, but also of our Mitzvah, Weddings, Funerals, and many humanity. other life cycle events. Temple Emanuel Allow this summer to be a time of has become a place where you can be your reﬂection, and goal-setting, for the year truest self. Our missions: “We seek to ahead.

MAZEL TOV! Though Erik Bentley may be a familiar face, he will now be serving as our Facility Manager. Erik joined our team in February of 2016 and has stepped up to the plate at every opportunity. Erik has taken on the responsibility of overseeing our building and grounds, our vendors, and our custodial staff. We are excited to have Erik in this new role and know that our congregation can only beneﬁt from his skills. Next time you see Erik in the halls, please thank him for all of his hard work!
BOARD OF GOVERNORS Monday, June 4 The Board was presented with the 2018-2019 budget with a deﬁcit of $25,000. The Executive Committee recommended a 4% increase in dues as we have not had a dues increase in the past several years to help keep our deﬁcit as low as possible. By reintroducing the Benefactors program and engaging past Benefactors and having thoughtful conversations with congregants, we hope to see additional revenue. Preschool has agreed to increase their annual contribution to help cover the costs of increasing maintenance, utilities, and other building expenses. In order to reduce building maintenance and utility costs we will need to make some building improvements over the summer months. We will begin to look for creative ways to utilize our building to increase revenue. The vote for a 4% dues increase was approved.
Rabbi Roth’s health insurance was previously capped at $10,000. He has only been using $6,500 of that cap. The vote to approve a new cap of $6,500 for his health insurance was approved
Vote to approve the 2018-2019 Budget with a $25,000 deﬁcit was approved. Several updates to the employee handbook were suggested. All potential employees must now pass the Early Education and Care Background check (CORI) to be eligible for hire. Meal Breaks are 30 minutes. Holiday pay was updated to reﬂect holiday pay for the High Holy Days only. Children of employees under the age of 16 are not allowed in the workplace, unless they are here for a temple event or program. Vote to approve these handbook changes was approved. Board meetings will be moved back to Tuesday evenings. We will review the schedule with Gitit regarding conﬂicts with the Soul Sisters. The 100th Anniversary Campaign leadership has changed from The Lapin Group to our new consultant, Liz Cahn. We are eager to move to the next stage of our campaign under her guidance.

PRESCHOOL Our end of year was very busy. During the special person breakfast we had over one hundred families join us for pancakes, mufﬁns, and fruit. Children and their special person went back to the classroom where they shared a story, sang songs and worked together on a project that was brought home as a gift. The Bluebird friendship circle gave parents and children an opportunity to say goodbye to our school. The morning was ﬁlled Beth Weisblatt, with laughter and tears while the children sang Preschool songs, received diplomas and families watched a Director montage of the children’s year at school. We ﬁnished the school year on a beautiful Sunday with a family sing along and drum circle. Families ﬁlled the hall with lovely music and singing and then all enjoyed ice cream sundaes. June explorers, our outdoor science based program has been a huge success. Our busy days were ﬁlled with water play, pool activities, visits from Curious Creature and the Bubble Man, as well as summer nature projects. A great time was had by all!

Summer is a time for recreation and being outdoors. For me, as a school teacher, summer is supposed to be relaxing and a chance to recharge. That never seems to be the case, but this year especially, as I take the reigns as your new Brotherhood president.
First of all, I want to thank David Trachtenberg for serving as president the last two years. Without his leadership our programming would not have risen to the level that it has become. Personally, I have been on the board for many years and have served as Dave’s vice president for the last two years. During this time, we along with the Brotherhood board have worked hard to build a community within a community; a group that has banded together to plan events, fundraisers and activities for not

We sponsor and support the TEMTY Purim Carnival, their major fundraiser, each year. We organize and provide ushers at High Holiday services. We commemorate our fallen war veterans by placing ﬂags at their graves each Memorial Day.

WORSHIP & RITUAL
The Ritual Committee has worked hard this year to continue to improve the Shabbat and High Holiday services, while remaining faithful to our goal of being true to the spiritual and religious traditions of Reform Judaism. We are constantly trying to ﬁnd ways to make all of our services relevant and meaningful to the congregation. In conjunction with the Temple clergy, we will continue to strive to meet this mission. Please note that starting with our Friday Sabbath Eve service on August 24th, services will be at 6:00pm; followed by all family dinners and events.
Youth Commission worked behind the scenes to support the three youth groups and their needs for planning, implementing, driving and chaperoning various programs throughout the year. TEMTY went to many regional events, hosted the Purim Carnival, had trips to Canobie Lake and Boda Borg, and planned our TEMTY Creative Service. Our Jr. TEMTY and TEMTY K’Tanim had great events like Cake and Cupcake decorating with Sharon’s Sweets, the ﬁrst ever NFTY678 Overnight at Camp Eisner, special Shabbat services, and dinners. We recognize that the youth is our gateway to the Jewish future and hope to build a strong Jewish identity within each child.
SISTERHOOD Sisterhood had a year of bringing together the women in our community. We sponsored our ﬁrst ﬁne art and craft show this year, which highlighted the talent within our community and brought new audiences to the temple. We partnered with several local agencies that focus on causes related to the economic empowerment of women: ACT, A Better Chance of Andover, Uncommon Threads, YWCA, and Project Home Again. We have collected items and funds to donate to these worthy organizations, thanks to the generosity of our Sisterhood members and the greater temple community. We have sponsored several young adult members of our congregation with scholarships to further their Jewish education by traveling to Israel as part of an organized learning experience.
BROTHERHOOD The Brotherhood successfully ran many events this past year including our ﬁrst ever Patriots tailgate party where we gathered outside for typical tailgating activities prior to watching a Patriots game in the multi-purpose room on the big screen. This event was so popular that we repeated it for a night game for the men later in the year. We also held our annual Couples Night Out tasting event as well as several breakfasts with guest speakers. Brotherhood sponsored and manned the TEMTY Purim Carnival concession stand to help the youth group raise money. Our signature event was our second annual A Night of Food, Fun and Laughs comedy night with four local Boston comics who left everyone in the crowd wanting more. We ended the year with our
MUSIC Music has been at the epicenter of Jewish life here at Temple Emanuel. Cantor Idan Irelander, in partnership with the Merrimack Valley Jewish Federation, taught a part of the “Music of Jewish Life.” In January we hosted our ﬁrst Shi Shi Israeli event in partnership with the Israeli American Council on Shabbat Shira. We sang and danced the night away together with both American and Israelis. We heard beautiful music from the Abbas and the Soul Sisters at services, in particular the Chanukah Night of Music. Soloist, Gitit Shoval, ﬁlled our sanctuary with beautiful melodies. And we hosted a Beneﬁt Concert for Puerto Rico that raised over $9,000 towards clean drinking water in their time of need. Cantor Idan Irelander shared Shabbat morning songs with our Preschool and guided our Religious School students in learning songs and prayers.
SOCIAL ACTION We established a new Social Action Committee called TECares. Temple members are invited to join and participate! This year the Edelstein Family and Temple Emanuel partnered with MIRA (Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition) to distribute six college scholarships to deserving students. We registered a TECares team for the Step Up For Colleen Walk. On May 6th, the Temple Emanuel Team walked together to support the 2018 Step Up for Colleen race. The race honors the life and legacy of Colleen Ritzer who grew up in Andover.
President Amy Riemer presented scholarships to deserving youth as part of the Edelstein Scholarship Fund at Temple Emanuel
TECares has a team, The Sunday Walkers, that will be raising money for Dana Farber as part of the Jimmy Fund Walk taking place on Sunday, September 23rd. Sign up as a walker or supporter at http://danafarber.jimmyfund.org/site/TR? fr_id=1060&pg=team&team_id=1687 to help raise money for Cancer Research.
BREAD AND ROSES The Bread & Roses Committee collected and delivered over 6 carloads of food to replenish the Lawrence-based food pantry from donations during the Yom Kippur Food Drive. The Temple donated 100 towels in December for the Bread & Roses "White Christmas". As each guest arrived at the holiday meal, he/ she received a tote bag or backpack containing a towel, sweatshirt, sox, soap and shampoo. Each month, our volunteers purchase, prepare and serve a hearty meal of baked macaroni & cheese, salad, rolls, fruit cup and home-baked cookies for 100 guests. Several of our volunteers cook and serve at the Bread & Roses pantry each month as well as provided holiday meals for Christmas Dinner and Easter Brunch
BUDGET & FINANCE Each year we aim to have a balanced budget, while still supporting our community and our mission. This past year we saw our revenue reach nearly $1.4 million; with our dues accounting for 62% of our overall revenue. Additional revenue was brought in from members who contributed above and beyond their dues, our Religious School, our Golf Outing, Discretionary Funds, among other items. As each year goes by, we see an increase in scholarships for dues and Religious School. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming community regardless of ﬁnancial ability. We will continue to raise awareness of our Benefactors Society, and thank those families who have given above and beyond their dues. A goal for our Board of Governors over the coming years will be to evaluate ways in which
we can increase our membership, ﬁnd ways to use our building to generate revenue, and encourage our youth to become involved past their bar or bat mitzvah. Our expenses reached just over $1.5 million. With an aging building our maintenance expenses have been on the rise. We have replaced sprinkler pipes and repaired HVAC units to ensure our building is warm and inviting. Our electrical and gas utilities have continued to rise over the years and we are looking at options on how to reduce not only our carbon footprint, but our utility usage overall. We are fortunate to have a team of custodians who keep our building clean and tidy. There is no doubt that we have much work ahead of us to ensure our ﬁnancial house is in order, but we are grateful to our Board of Governors who have kept a watchful eye over our accounts and will continue to guide us on the right path. This past year we have made some tough decisions that will help us move forward in a positive light, together as one community.
LIFE CYCLE EVENTS Each year at Temple Emanuel, we celebrate life cycle events with our fellow congregants. Rabbi Robert Goldstein and Cantor Idan Irelander ofﬁciate at B’Nai Mitzvah and weddings, perform baby naming ceremonies, and help our congregants honor and mourn the death of family members. Our Preschool graduated nearly 30 Blue Bird students who are more than ready to tackle Kindergarten next year. Our Religious School prepped and honored 30 third graders at their Consecration and 35 of our students became B’Nai Mitzvah. We continued to watch our youth programs ﬂourish. And this June, we celebrated 3 congregants who became Adult B’Nai Mitzvah.

BOOK CLUB October 2 at 7:00pm | Herzog by Saul Bellow This is the story of Moses Herzog, a great sufferer, joker, mourner, and charmer. Although his life steadily disintegrates around him - he has failed as a writer and teacher, as a father, and has lost the affection of his wife to his best friend - Herzog sees himself as a survivor, both of his private disasters and those of the age. He writes unsent letters to friends and enemies, colleagues and famous people, revealing his wry perception of the world and the innermost secrets of his heart.

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? If you need an idea I have a list of projects that may suit you. Contact Laurie at email@example.com.
"Rent an Arrangement" Would you like to perform a mitzvah and have the bima look beautiful at your child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah? 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.
Bar/Bat Mitzvah and General Gifts Jewelry / Cards / Books / Tallitot / Mezzuzot Baby Gifts / Household Gifts / Wrapping Needs
To rent an arrangement, please contact the Temple Office at 978.470.1356. You can also email Barbara Holstein at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sisterhood Donations For a $5 donation, a card will be sent to honor relatives and friends for a special occasion or in memory of a loved one. For an $18 donation, we will send a beautifully illustrated card. The money from these donations is directed toward education and scholarship and program enrichment.
