SOCIAL MEDIA

Life's many events are made more joyous - or easier to bear - when shared with a community. Let us know if you have an occasion worthy of marking, whether it is a birth of a child or a grandchild, a wedding, a graduation, an award, or an illness or death of a loved one. All it takes is a phone call. Contact us at 206.323.8486.

ON OUR COVER: The night before going to print, Temple hosted a Community Vigil for Pittsburgh, and due to the tremendous outpouring of support, we felt compelled to showcase its impact on this issue's cover. Cover photo by Stefie Cohen.

Sam Berry, Relationship Manager

Temple’s membership and development team is excited to introduce Sam Berry, who brings a vast amount of experience working in Jewish non-profits, most recently working at Camp Tawonga, a residential summer camp in Yosemite National Park. Sam helps new members integrate into the community by connecting them to programs and people with similar interests. As a recent transplant from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sam is happily exploring the food scene and the beautiful nature surrounding Seattle in his free time.

Paula Cooper, Relationship Manager

Temple is extremely fortunate to welcome member Paula Cooper to our professional staff. Paula has been a part of Temple’s congregational family for five years, along with her husband Michael and children Jordan and Eryn, who both had their b’nai mitzvah at Temple.  Paula brings experience as both a mental health counselor and as a full-time parent, and genuinely loves building relationships.  Grateful for how warmly she and her family had been welcomed into the congregation, Paula is now delighted to help create positive experiences for other Temple members.

Zoie Utterback, Hebrew & B’nai Mitzvah Coordinator

Temple’s education team is one member stronger as Zoie Utterback steps into the role of Hebrew and B’nai Mitzvah Coordinator. Most recently, Zoie played the role of Youth Engagement Coordinator at Temple Israel in Stockton, CA and the Arts Supervisor at URJ Camp Kalsman. Here at Temple, Zoie oversees the midweek Hebrew programs, works directly with the seventh grade students on Sundays, and is the point person for all of the B’nai Mitzvah process scheduling. Zoie cannot wait to meet you all and integrate into Temple’s kehillah kedoshah.

LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

The Impact of Your Temple Membership Resonates Throughout Our Community Somewhere along the way, each of us has had the excitement of a new purchase—whether for our children, our home or ourselves—tempered by those three dreaded words: "Some Assembly Required." After mustering our courage, opening the box and organizing the project, we realize that with each blow of the hammer on the nail or with every turn of the screw, we make an impact toward achieving our goal. In much the same way, your membership in Temple can resonate throughout our community. Your financial support, including your contributions to the High Holy Days Campaign, makes it possible for our rabbis to lead us in worship, teach our youth, inspire us with thought-provoking programming, provide loving pastoral care and be actively involved in leadership roles in our community.

by Grant Degginger, Board President

Your participation through service on a Temple committee or as a volunteer for our Women’s Homeless Shelter, with the Religion School or at one of the countless Temple events over the course of the year, provides direct and lasting impacts on many lives. If you are currently volunteering, thank you. If you would like to find an opportunity to participate, please visit www.templedehirschsinai.org/volunteer. The work of our Board of Directors has an impact in shaping Temple today and in the future. Initiatives in developing a master plan for development of the Bellevue campus and redevelopment of the Seattle campus are underway. Also, we are evaluating whether there are alternative membership structures available that might provide a better way of continuing to grow our congregation. We will be sharing information about these initiatives on our website and Facebook page from time to time, so do make a point of checking. Trust me, when the hammers of all of our 1,600 Temple families are swinging at the same time, we can make a big impact! Best, Grant

VOLUNTEER AT TEMPLE

At Temple, we help our members connect to critical social justice projects. Check out the most recent opportunities at www.templedehirschsinai.org/volunteer and contact Rabbi Aaron Meyer at ameyer@tdhs-nw.org for more information and to get involved.

LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

The Impacts of Your Support From my own personal experiences, I know that Temple is an incredible, powerful place. Temple has done a lot for my family and me, and we are very thankful.

However, believe it or not, these benefits to myself and my family are not the primary reason that I lead our Development Committee, nor are they the primary reason that I contribute to Temple personally.

Temple by the Numbers

by Aaron Alhadeff, Chair, Board Development Committee

Emily and I contribute to Temple because we believe in what Temple does as a whole. We can only imagine what it’s like to be consoled by a rabbi after losing a spouse of 55 years, or to be a threeyear-old at Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool playing dreidel for the first time, or to be welcomed into our community upon moving to Seattle knowing absolutely no one. But it is deeply important to us that Temple makes all of this possible. We support Temple so that we can open doors for our congregation and our entire community. What

makes Temple special is what it does for all of us, together. When any one of us makes a gift to Temple, it is an investment in our congregation’s greater impacts. The programs, the services, and the relationshipbuilding that benefit our entire Temple family are the returns on our investments. Virtually everything that you will read about in this issue of Tidings is made possible by gifts from you, our generous supporters. The impacts of your philanthropy are profound. Temple’s High Holy Days Annual Campaign is one vehicle for us to give together, as a community. A heartfelt thank you to each of you who has already given to this year’s Campaign. If you have not yet made your gift, we invite you to join us. By giving to Temple, you are making a significant impact on our congregation and beyond. We are grateful for your support. Thank you.

These are just a few, quantifiable examples of the many impacts that Temple has made over the past year.

HILLS OF ETERNITY CEMETERY

Temple’s Hills of Eternity Cemetery Photo by Stefie Cohen.

Temple De Hirsch Sinai operates the oldest Jewish cemetery in Seattle, Hills of Eternity. It was founded in 1890 as Gibboth Olum Reform Cemetery by Congregation Chaveth Sholem, and in 1911, Temple De Hirsch assumed stewardship of the cemetery.

by Jim Collier, Director of Facilities

Many of Seattle's Jewish civic and business leaders are interred at Hills of Eternity. Their names are a part of Seattle's history and are found on many well-known businesses and public venues. There are many Jewish veterans of the US military interred at Hills of Eternity, as well. On Memorial Day each year, the Jewish War Veterans association places a U.S. flag at every veteran’s plot in honor and remembrance.

Committee, which is comprised of lay persons who have an interest and passion to preserve, improve, and ensure the future of the cemetery.

Many of the memorial stones are weathered, and the names and dates are sometimes hard to make out, but each denotes the resting place of an individual. Many are life stories in just a line or two, from a couple married for over five decades, to an individual who immigrated from a place that no longer exists, to a child who did not live a day. Hills of Eternity is a symbol of the enduring commitment of our tradition and community to the dignity and legacy of our cherished loved ones.

RESTROOM AVAILABILITY AT HILLS OF ETERNITY

When visiting the cemetery, please note there is a restroom in the Butterworth Columbarium, the building right behind our mausoleum, which is open from 9:00 AM—4:00 PM daily. You are also welcome to use the restroom at the Butterworth/ Arthur A. Wright chapel, which is open Mon—Fri. 8:30 AM—4:30 PM. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

If you wish to visit and leave a stone on your loved one’s grave, Sacred Journeys has provided stones for you use. You will see a small sculpture with a bowl of stones on top.

Operations at Hills of Eternity are guided by the Cemetery

To be recognized as an emergent adult in our tradition, and to become a fully embodied Jew of any age in word, deed and spirit, demands that we see and vow and act beyond the needs of self, compelled by the needs of others. This is far more than a progressive fad of the moment or embrace of the mantle of the Social Justice Warrior. It is the core of our covenant with God, and the most genuine reflection of that teaching of all teachings: to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

YOUR SUPPORT ENABLES OUR RABBIS TO FORM IMPACTFUL COMMUNITY AND PROGRAMMATIC PARTNERSHIPS WITH ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS THESE:

Kline Galland

Seattle Art Museum

by Daniel Weiner, Senior Rabbi

In my initial discussion with our B’nai Mitzvah students, I remind them of the axiom from that pithy repository of rabbinic wisdom, Pirke Avot (The Ethics of our Ancestors). It asserts the foundations of a fully realized Jewish life: The world stands on three things: on Torah, on Avodah/Worship, and on G'millut Chasadim/ Acts of Loving Kindness.  While the first two legs upon which the world depends are well addressed by the individual B’nai Mitzvah process, the third, reaching out to those in need with acts of gracious support, is not only critical, but is the end to which the first two legs are means. For as Jews, we are encouraged to study, to gain knowledge, and to appreciate how worship connects us to God and to our community.  But knowledge and faith are but shallow forms of self-aggrandizement if they do not lead us to become better people who can, in turn, improve the world around us.  And while much

TEMPLE RABBIS ON WORKING IN THE COMMUNITY

Responding to a Stream of Needs A story is told of villagers working the fields near a fast moving river. When someone noticed a baby floating by in the water, the closest person dropped everything and rushed out to rescue it. More babies were found floating downstream and of course the villagers rescued them as well. Before long, there was a steady stream of babies floating down the river and the whole village was involved in the many tasks of rescue work: pulling these poor children out of the stream and ensuring they were properly fed, clothed, and housed.

Aaron Meyer, Associate Rabbi

The villagers quickly became exhausted. When someone suggested they go upstream to discover how all these babies were getting into the river in the first place, a huge controversy erupted. One group argued that every possible hand was needed to save the babies since they were barely keeping up with the current flow. The other group argued that if they found out how those babies were getting into the water in the first place, they could prevent the need for costly rescue operations downstream. This same disagreement takes place in synagogues across the country. How much effort should be expended on front-line social justice work (feeding the hungry, cleaning up parks and waterfronts, providing feminine hygiene products and diapers to those who can’t otherwise afford them) and how much effort should be placed into advocacy and using the political system to attain structural change.

It is to America’s detriment that caring for those in need frequently devolves into partisan squabbling and leads some to believe the synagogue should not be involved “in politics” at all. I would argue that using every resource available to bring about our highest values is not political but our very religious calling as American Jews. Part of my portfolio is ensuring Temple puts its assets — monetarily and voluntarily — where our prophet’s mouths are. That means serving more than 300 meals a month in local shelters. It means hosting an overflow women’s homeless shelter on our Seattle campus and advocating for permanent emergency shelter in Bellevue. It means volunteering with partner organizations including Northwest Harvest, FareStart, Congregations for the Homeless, The Seattle World School, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and more. It means teaching classes about civic engagement and registering people to vote. It means facilitating Bar and Bat Mitzvah projects and Operation Sandwich experiences so our kids realize the world is bigger than themselves. It means creating opportunities to live Judaism in the world as well as within the walls of our homes and sacred spaces.  Unfortunately, that stream will always continue to flow with people in need of our help. Will you continue to join us?

TEMPLE RABBIS ON WORKING IN THE COMMUNITY

Praying With Our Feet

Callie Schulman, Associate Rabbi

Congregations across the country are coming together around big issues of Tikkun Olam. While many of them revolve around political lines, and some in our communities believe that synagogues should stay a-political, there are clear voices within Jewish tradition that urge us otherwise - that urge us not to remain silent in the face of values that conflict with the core ideals of Judaism (e.g. that all humans are created in the Divine Image, b'tzelem Elohim, and, as Rabbi Hillel said, "what is hateful to you, do not do to another"). We know that many of our congregants have been participating in the Women's March, the March for our Lives, and pounding the pavement to get folks

to register to vote. We know that they are doing these things because they tell us they are - they show us that they are on social media. Many Reform synagogues around the country are responding, bringing their people together to march behind banners with their congregation's name on it taking the opportunity to do with their congregants what they are already doing on their own. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel coined the term "praying with our feet," in reference to the marching that he and so many others did during the Civil Rights era. It is my vision to see Temple coming together to pray with our feet more in the year to come. 

The Tribe in the Community For the last few years, The Tribe (Temple's 20’s – 30’s group) has hosted a "Senior Prom" for the residents of The Summit at First Hill, an assisted living care community. The event is ostensibly for the residents, to bring additional fun and levity and nostalgia to their lives, and each year we also hear stories of young adults engaging with the residents in ways that enrich and enliven their experiences as well. 10

FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AT TEMPLE

Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool: Impacts Today for Impacts Tomorrow As we continue providing learning opportunities that instill Judaic values and help our students prepare for kindergarten, we aspire to make a positive impact on these children, and know that our children will be impactful on our world. They are growing up before our eyes; those who were infants in the Owl room last year have graduated to our brand new Hedgehog classroom for one year old’s, and a brand new set of babies now fills the Owl room. We have newly named our two-year-old classrooms as “Red Foxes” and “Tree Foxes,” animals native to Israel, in keeping with our classroom themes. We hope families with young children will join us for our fall/winter programming. To learn more about Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool and our other early childhood programs, or to share new ideas for programming, contact Shannon Solomon at ssolomon@thds-nw.org or 425.559.2571.

Barak was born and raised in Rishon LeZion, Israel as the second boy to a family with five kids, including Barak’s twin brother Or. During high school, Barak was a member in the Scouts movement, and at age 18 was nominated as a leader of the local Scouts chapter. Barak has served a full duration in the Artillery Corp of the IDF and was released in 2018 as a Sergeant Major after three years of service. Barak is part of our Hebrew program and Cafe Ivrit, and is excited to be a part of the Temple De Hirsch Sinai community.

SACRED JOURNEYS

Kever Avot 2018: Honoring our Loved Ones by Laurie Warshal Cohen, Sacred Journeys

During the holiday season, Jews have traditionally made a visit to cemeteries to honor loved ones. In 2014, Sacred Journeys took on the sponsorship of the Cemetery Pilgrimage service, added refreshments, announcements in Temple publications, invitations to those who had lost a loved one in the past year, and a personal phone call to those families. The invitation and announcements stressed wherever your loved ones may be buried, attend this meaningful service to light a candle in their memory. We are all familiar with the phrase, “If you build it, they will come,” from the movie, Field of Dreams (1989).

One family group mourned the loss of a mother and grandmother who had been the center of a large and loving family. They said they were trying to carry on. Another family recently lost their mother, and just a few years later, they now mourned their father’s loss. Another member recounted that his recently deceased mother was a Holocaust survivor who lived past 100 and always gave him the best she had. In addition, there were families who spoke about their lost children.

Sacred Journeys

When 40-50 candles were offering a beautiful glow, Rabbi Weiner read from a handout for the service: Their souls are bound up in ours forever. Along with refreshments and greetings, Sacred Journeys volunteers reached out to accommodate this community of mourners in an atmosphere of community, connection and understanding.

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, Sacred a caregiving, mourning and bereavement initiative Journeys volunteers witnessed the truth of this pop culture phrase. For the fifth consecutive year, the chapel at the Hills of Eternity was filled to capacity with Temple families who came to remember people who had We thank Rabbi Weiner for his leadership and been important in their lives. spiritual sensitivity. Our thanks to Lisa Horowitz, Irene Amster and Dan Eklund, Cemetery Manager. The service, led by Rabbi Weiner, was brief and limited in scope. It’s so close to a family gathering; everyone knows why they have come.

This year, as in previous years, Rabbi Weiner invited anyone who wished to come to a table set up in the front, and to light a yahrzeit candle. He suggested that if it was comfortable, they might tell the group who they were lighting the candle for, and maybe something about that person. As individuals or family groups lit their candle, some spoke of the pain of recent loss, while others spoke from their memory of parents, children and other family members. 26

Sacred Journeys is supported by the William and Edith Warshal Fund for Sacred Journeys, which allows Temple to support members who are caregiving for elders, experiencing the decline and death of a family member, and/or facing a period of mourning and bereavement. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Irene Amster at iamster@tdhs-nw.org or 206.693.3369. Photo: Adam Paz.

CELEBRATING TEMPLE MEMBERS - HONORABLE MENSCHENS

Honorable Menschen:

Temple Youth in Israel:

Jennifer Carrol, M.A., M.M.S., A.T.C, P.A.-C, was named a recipient of the 2018 National Athletic Trainer’s Association Athletic Trainer Service Award. The Athletic Trainer Service Award recognizes NATA members for their contributions to the athletic training profession as volunteers at the local and state levels. ATSA recipients have been involved in professional associations, community organizations, grassroots public relations efforts and service as volunteer athletic trainers. Jen received her award in June at the NATA Convention and Exposition in New Orleans.

This summer I had the amazing opportunity to represent the USA by playing in the Maccabi Youth Games in Israel. During this experience, I met people from all over the US, I played volleyball against teams from around the world, and I got to tour and experience the beautiful land of Israel. One of the best parts of the trip was when we played our first match against Israel; we won, and there was so much energy, and it was an amazing game to play. I also thought it was so interesting to see the styles of how people played volleyball around the world. My team ended up winning bronze in the tournament, and it was such a cool experience. The week after our competitions ended, I traveled with the rest of the USA athletes from all the sport categories to Jerusalem, where we toured for a week. I would like to specifically thank the Jewish Federation, Temple De Hirsch Sinai, and the Galante family for supporting me in going on this trip and allowing me to experience this amazing opportunity!

Jennifer Carrol

Agents of Change

Julia Lotzkar Plays in Maccabi Youth Games

Matthew Rubenstein Travels with NFTY

While Israel might be indescribable, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some words that at least come close. Awe-inspiring, life-changing, and pure amazing would be a few. In short, my NFTY trip to Israel was one of the best trips of my life. I got to meet Jews from all over the country, I got to meet Israeli teens, and I got to see all the places that make up our story as a people, from the Old Temple and the Western Wall to the Negev Desert that our ancestors trekked through to reach Israel. It was a trip that I won’t forget for a long time, and one that I think every Jewish teen, no matter where they’re from, should take.
