LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT | ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Impact of Your Temple Membership Resonates Throughout Our Community

by Grant Degginger, Board President

Those of us “of a certain age,” will remember the comedy stylings of Joan Rivers. Rivers was a groundbreaking entertainer who came on the national stage in the 1960’s and remained a comedic icon for forty years. She told great stories about her own life, her family and the world around her. And when she was winding up and getting really passionate about her story and its message, she would let us know by reciting her signature phrase: “Can we talk?” I would like to borrow Joan’s tag line, at least metaphorically. As I mentioned during my report to the congregation at the High Holy Days, the Temple board has devoted substantial

time thinking about Temple’s future—how we continue to grow the Bridge Family Religion School; how we create opportunities for the Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool to serve more families; how we maintain and improve our facilities in Bellevue and Seattle as well as our cemetery; and how we can support our great clergy in the many roles they perform for us individually and as a community. This is an incomplete list because it fails to mention so many fabulous programs that Temple provides, including our social justice efforts and many volunteer opportunities. I could go on and on but instead of giving a monologue, this

important subject deserves a dialogue. That’s where you come in. We are initiating a series of community conversations where we want to listen to you and hear what about Temple inspires you and what you believe the future vision of Temple should look like. Our Development Committee is leading this effort.You can read more about it in the column written by co-chairs Aaron Alhadeff and Alison Handlin. Your input matters because it will help us prioritize our efforts and investments. Please take the time to participate.We really want to talk with you.

TEMPLE IS GOING GREEN & YOU CAN HELP!

ACCOUNT ACCESS

As part of our commitment to tikkun olam, repairing the world, Temple is changing over all our paper goods to compostable. You will now see three kinds of waste receptacles, including compost/green waste, recyclables, and trash/landfill. When in doubt, please put your items in landfill, as just one non-recyclable or non-compostable item in one of those bins will require the whole thing to go into the trash. This is one way we can live out the Jewish value of bal tashchit, to not destroy, which forbids us from creating needless waste and destruction of our natural world.

Temple De Hirsch Sinai values your time and your membership, and we offer online member services which allow you to view and pay your current bill, update contact information, see our member directory, register for events and classes, plus make online donations to Temple funds…any time, day or night. To access your account online, simply go to templedehirschsinai.org and click the “LOGIN” menu item, then choose the “Sign In Here” option. You will then be asked for your User ID and password.

CEMETERY •

Thanks to Rabbi Daniel Weiner and Temple, there is now a new microphone at the Butterworth Chapel.

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 your use. You will see a small sculpture with a bowl of stones on top in the front of the mausoleum. February/March/April 2019/5779 Vol. 111, No. 3

LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

Your Voice Shapes Temple’s Future

by Aaron Alhadeff, Board Development Committee

by Alison Handlin, Board Development Committee

In order to look to the future, Temple’s board and senior leadership are turning to you. We are about to dive into a deep exploration of our members’ relationships with Temple and the Temple community, and your input will make an impact for generations to come.

The themes that emerge from these meetings, in concert with the visions that our senior rabbi and board have thoughtfully established, will dictate any planning. We need to understand what our congregational family wants and needs from Temple, for today and for tomorrow.

Recognizing that we can only chart the course of the future with our congregants’ direct involvement, we are devoting the next year to listening and understanding members’ aspirations for Temple’s future so that we may best serve you.

Ultimately, we’ll turn your feedback into action as we chart our short-term and longterm goals for the Temple that is our home, and is home to our children, grandchildren, and beyond.

In order to go about this, we will be organizing a series of community conversations, opportunities for members to share what matters to them at Temple. These focus groups of 20-30 people are held in the homes of our congregants and are facilitated by a professional consultant. Over the next year, we anticipate talking with 500-700 people about their perspectives on what the Temple community needs. The focus groups will include a variety of people—some grouped by commonalities, like being Religion School parents, or based on where they live, and others of mixed demographics. The goal is for a body of participants that is representative of our congregation to voice their opinions and ideas for Temple’s future. Everyone gets a say.

Over the long history of our people, the basis of our religion stays the same but the way we congregate and celebrate our Judaism continues to evolve. I am proud to be part of the Planning Committee as we continue to evaluate our current facilities and consider the future need. -Jeff Schoenfeld

We hope you will actively participate in shaping a strong and positive future for Temple by voicing your ideas. If you would like to participate in a community conversation, please contact Paula Cooper and Sam Berry, Relationship Managers, at pcooper@tdhs-nw.org or sberry@tdhs-nw.org. -------------------------------------------------------------While the primary focus this year is on processing member input and feedback, we are concurrently beginning to study the practical considerations of campus improvements, out of due diligence. Here are some words from the Seattle Campus Planning Committee:

February/March/April 2019/5779 Vol. 111, No. 3

These are exciting times for our Temple. Our membership is growing, our religion school is growing and our community involvement is growing. To meet this growth and the opportunities and challenges this growth offers, our lay leadership in conjunction with our Temple rabbis and professionals are undertaking long range planning of our facilities both in Bellevue and Seattle. -Dr. Mel Freeman I am participating in the committee because I care about Temple’s future. In addition, I am intrigued and excited by the process of putting together the priorities and needs of the congregation with construction options, costs, and the many other factors one considers in such a large and complicated project. -Laurie Minsk

CONVERSATIONS AND CONNECTIONS

As Temple embarks upon a series of Community Conversations, Relationship Managers Sam Berry and Paula Copper sat down with two members of Temple to learn about their connections to the community and insights about Temple. Jane Isenberg and her daughter Rachel Stoner are part of a multi-generational Temple family, and are both active participants in Temple life. In the photo: Brian Stoner, Jane Isenberg, Jordan Stoner, Levi Stoner, Rachel Stoner

Conversation with Jane Isenberg Jane: It’s always fun for me to talk and think about Temple, and about being Jewish. Sam: How long have you been in the area? Jane: My daughter Rachel has been here since 1991, “millions of years.” Phil and I have been here since 2003. We had been living in Hoboken, New Jersey, then Amherst, Massachusetts. Rachel told us we had to come out to Washington. Sam: Did you join Temple because of Rachel? Jane: During the course of my life, I have belonged to Reform, Conservative, Reconstruction, Humanist, and Orthodox synagogues, and have been what I would call “secularly active” in all of them. I’m a Temple-joiner. Rachel said to me, “Mom, if I’m gonna do the Jewish thing here, you’re gonna have to help me.” We heard Rabbi Weiner at the first service we went to. I decided that I was going to join. And I joined a book group. And then for reasons I have yet to understand, someone put me on a committee, and Endless Opportunities grew out of that committee’s work.

grandchildren, through myself, through the support I’ve gotten from the rabbis, and just the fact that it’s there. I haven’t needed rabbinical counseling yet, but I know that it’s there too if I do need it. I think the other thing is that Temple’s community has been very supportive of my writing. Sisterhood has invited me to give book talks when I came out with a new mystery. Rabbi Weiner fact-checked a monster of a book, The Bones and the Book, for me. He read through the whole thing. He was just very supportive of my writing. He still is. Sam: Is there anything that you specifically enjoy about Temple? Jane: I enjoy all the services I go to, hearing the rabbis’ perspectives, seeing some familiar faces. I think it’s terrific that Temple is so tolerant and recognizes the need for Jews of all sorts to interact positively with the people around us, and to help those who are less fortunate and fix what’s broken. It’s wonderful to be part of something that’s so important as that.

Interviewed by Sam Berry, Relationship Manager

CONVERSATIONS AND CONNECTIONS | ANNOUNCEMENTS

Conversation with Rachel Stoner

would be cool to have some sort of geographically-based app to connect Temple members online. It would be a way to connect the Temple community when it’s not feasible to be on the campuses.

Paula: How did you come to Temple?

Paula: What a great idea. I love the concept of it.

Rachel: Brian and I moved out here in 1991. We weren’t married at the time, but we moved across the country and landed in Seattle. We were not affiliated with a temple for ten or twelve years.

Rachel: The other thing would be a chavurah--groups of five or six families that get together. I think some of that would help people feel like they belong, especially through the teen years—it’s just another avenue to facilitate community.

Jordan was about one-and-a-half when my mom moved out here. I was pregnant with Levi. My mom said, “If you don’t join a temple and become formally part of a Jewish community, your kids will not have a Jewish identity living out here.” So, we joined Temple. It was definitely different from what I was used to at a Conservative synagogue in Hoboken, NJ. The first Shabbat we went to was Rock Shabbat. Rabbi Weiner was rockin’ the guitar, high-energy--and Jordan was seriously hooked. And I thought, “This is the place.” Paula: How did you come to be so involved? Rachel: Being new and wanting to meet people, I spearheaded dessert potlucks after Sunday school to bring parents together. Jordan got very involved in playing guitar, doing youth choir and kesher choir, then playing at Shabbat Atid. Then I was asked to be on the board. I’ve never been on a board for an organization as large as Temple, with a budget as large as Temple, so it’s been very eye-opening. I’ve learned a ton. Paula: What is your favorite thing about Temple? Rachel: What I like is the inclusiveness. Rabbi Weiner gave a whole High Holy Days sermon on “the partner of the Jew.” It really meant a lot to me, as the wife of a non-Jew, that my family was worthy of having a High Holy Days sermon devoted to the topic. And not just non-Jewish family members, but LGBTQ, people of other races, other religions--they are so respectful and inclusive of the wider community. It’s really quite amazing. Paula: Is there additional programming that you would like for you and your family that we’re not providing? Rachel: I feel like there could be more clubs. There are things that I want to do that I think could be done at Temple and could help bring community together in different ways that aren’t so formal. I also think it

Paula: Is there anything else about Temple that is important to you or would be important to others that we haven’t talked about that you’d like to? Rachel: I’m a huge proponent of you and Sam. I think you guys are great. I’m thrilled that you’re reaching out. You’re killing it. How do you connect with Temple? Please contact our Relationship Managers, Paula Cooper at pcooper@tdhs-nw.org or 206.258.4215, and Sam Berry at sberry@tdhs-nw.org or 206.492.5261, to get more involved and share your insights.

RABBI'S CORNER

Connections to a Sacred Community

by Aaron Meyer, Associate Rabbi

“A shul with a pool and a school” is a tonguein-cheek summary of Mordechai Kaplan’s vision that synagogues must actively expand beyond the walls of their sanctuaries. By providing expansive cultural and recreational opportunities, he thought, our synagogue-centers can appeal to Jews who have fully embraced American life while opening the door for their — and their children’s — development of Jewish friendships and re-engagement with Jewish tradition. Whether the idea was uniquely Kaplan’s or should be attributed to his predecessor Henry Berkowitz (part of the first graduating class of the Hebrew Union College in 1883), this model remains central in American Jewish life. Synagogues thrive when they are centers not only of religious worship but also Jewish education and social activity, when they prioritize the importance of both Judaism and the Jews who practice it.

••• It’s easy, for those of us reading this article and choosing to belong to Temple, to take the synagogue-center model for granted. We think of Temple as the central address for both Judaism and Jews in a way that masks the tension that can exist between them. The Pew Center’s Portrait of Jewish Americans and its category 8

|

of “Jews of No Religion” threw many for a loop precisely because the synagoguecenter model is so effective as to make us temporarily forget the distinction. In reality, from the civil emancipation of European Jewry onward (inclusive of the entire American Jewish experience), our modern world knows two related but seemingly distinct forms of Jewish expression: Jews who are active participants in the faith of their ancestors and those who identify exclusively in sociopolitical terms as a “people” or cultural group. Look no further for illustration than the modern State of Israel and the ongoing clash between Jews who identify as religious fundamentalists and those who are secular nationalists.

••• The American Jewish community has largely resisted such open animosity, in large part due to the synagogue-center model. Our synagogues, our centers of Jewish life combine religious worship (beit tefilah or house of prayer), Jewish education (beit midrash or house of study), and social activity (beit k’nesset or house of assembly) in one central address, seamlessly combining the Jews and the Judaism. Individuals availing themselves of the beit tefilah aspect of Temple rub shoulders with those in it for beit midrash; those interested

February/March/April 2019/5779 Vol. 111, No. 3

in beit midrash remain in sacred community with those seeking beit k’nesset. Hopefully, ideally, those lines begin to blur when a friend invites us to cross into their preferred aspect or when our interests morph and develop as we ourselves change and grow. We can thus move from the shul to the school to the pool and back again. We begin to break down the disparity between culture and religion when experiences and sacred relationships cause us to see beit tefilah, beit midrash, and beit k’nesset not as polarities but a continuum on which we are situated and able to move.

••• Throughout this edition of Temple Tidings, you will read the words of Temple members sharing their connection to this sacred community. Some might gravitate more toward one aspect of our synagoguecenter model while others might embrace the whole panoply, yet all find their home in Jewish life through Temple. Together we create a vibrancy in American Jewish life and take seriously our role as the next link in the chain of Jewish tradition stretching back to Sinai.

FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN

Connecting at Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool Connections at Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool come in many forms. We were excited to welcome extended families and friends to our Chanukah Art Show this past winter, and look forward to our Purim Costume Parade and Family Passover Seder led by Rabbi Meyer this spring. Parents have been sitting down with teachers to discuss their children’s goals for the next year through family conferences. And every day at school, our conversations center around Jewish values and the weekly Torah portion. The connections that the children make with each other is heartwarming, as they form friendships that we hope will be carried on for years to come. Fall enrollment is starting soon!

BRIDGE FAMILY RELIGION SCHOOL & YOUTH

Teacher Enrichment & Lifelong Connections to the Jewish Community

by Stacey Delcau, RJE, Director of Education

Our passionate teachers at Bridge Family Religion School do vital work in imparting core Jewish knowledge and inspiring a lasting love of Jewish learning. Now, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Bobbi and Bob Bridge, our BFRS educators are building their knowledge of Judaism and Hebrew, plus strengthening their teaching skills, through a range of professional development opportunities. We are deeply grateful for the support of the Bobbi and Bob Bridge Teacher’s Endowment Fund for enhancing our sacred work of providing children with positive and meaningful experiences in a Jewish context.

BFRS teacher Sarah Shero shares her experience with the Teacher Enrichment Program: “I teach third grade Religion School, and with our Project Based Learning model (PBL) we will be learning about Shabbat next semester. I have been interested in mindfulness for quite some time now, and I really want to focus my class on the concept of rest and how we can use mindfulness strategies and practices to carve out that special space and time for Shabbat. I took a great online course called ‘Mindfulness for Educators’ and now have the tools to teach things like mindful breathing and mindful listening to my class. I am so excited to start implementing our weekly mindful practice after winter break and I am so thankful for the Bridge teacher grant that enabled me to take this course!” 

Bridge Family Religion School

Robin Curtis, who is in her 30th year teaching at BFRS, took a trope class through the Teacher Enrichment Program. “I’m just totally impassioned with trying to provide Judaic learning to children,” Robin expressed. A Hebrew teacher, Robin will now be able to teach trope. Robin appreciates being a learner as well, saying, “It impacts my teaching greatly. To be an effective teacher, you always have to strive to keep learning and bettering yourself so you can provide the children with the best quality of education that they deserve…It not only enables me to be a better teacher, but it also strengthens our Jewish community. We’re getting to meet other educators and share ideas and interests…I can’t thank Bobbi and Bob Bridge enough for providing this for us.”

ON THE BRIDGE FAMILY RELIGION SCHOOL CALENDAR

Bobbi & Bob Bridge

There is nothing more important in our lives than our children. I want these children to remain Jews, Jews who are committed to our Jewish beliefs and values. Our teachers are a vital part of these goals. They are in the front line to give our children the knowledge to do this. The Bridge Family Religion School Teacher Enrichment, Training and Retention program will enrich our teachers. It will enable them to do a superior job. It will build a cadre of enthusiastic, motivated, knowledgeable teachers. It will give our teaching staff the know-how to create great experiences and curriculum for our kids. Ultimately, our students will be the beneficiaries of this program. I love Judaism, I love God and I hope our kids will feel the same way.

YAHRZEIT OBSERVANCE To add a name to the weekly yahrzeit list read aloud on Shabbat, please contact Janet Rasmus, Director of Membership, at 206.693.3365 or jrasmus@tdhs-nw.org, by 5:00 PM on Monday the week of the yahrzeit. Please also contact Janet for information about Temple’s Perpetual Yahrzeit program, which helps congregants remember and observe yahrzeits by providing reminder letters, plus automatic inclusion of yahrzeit names in the weekly Shabbat Service program and in our quarterly Tidings newsletter.

DETERMINING YAHRZEIT SHABBAT OBSERVANCE DATE The yahrzeits observed on a given Shabbat include those whose anniversaries of death took place in the previous week, Saturday to Friday. Therefore, to determine the Shabbat observance date of a loved one’s yahrzeit, first find the date of death on the English calendar. The yahrzeit would be observed beginning sundown on the Friday immediately following.

SACRED JOURNEYS

Out of Town Deaths: Sacred Journeys Reaches Out By Laurie Warshal Cohen, Sacred Journeys To reach more of our Temple family, we encourage members to let Temple know about loved ones who pass away outside of Seattle. Recently, Sacred Journeys was able to do exactly that when two families in our congregation experienced out of town deaths.

Sacred Journeys a caregiving, mourning and bereavement initiative

I met Rachel Greene a few months after her beloved grandmother, Freda Stern, who lived in Miami and Toronto passed away. Rachel told me about a great woman, who was a Holocaust survivor, mother and grandmother. “Our Temple family wants to support you and your family,” I told her, “no matter where your grandmother died.” I suggested that Rachel call Jennifer Phillips, Rabbi Weiner’s Executive Assistant, so that her grandmother’s name would be read at services and a congregational email sent in her honor. “We will deliver soup and challah to you this week,” I promised her.

Rachel did follow through with this call, so all of you who know Rachel and her family were able to read of her loss. Hopefully, some even reached out to her. Just a few days later, Lynne Smith’s father, Carleton Gerald Herer, passed away in New Jersey. Lynne and Brad and their family flew off to New Jersey for the funeral. When they returned, Sacred Journeys volunteer Ellen Laschansky called Lynne to offer our condolences. She met the family at Friday night services to give them soup and challah. Ellen, an active volunteer with Sacred Journeys, happened to be the contact for both families and delivered the soup. Ellen’s parents passed away in the last decade. “When Sacred Journeys was formed, I knew I wanted to put my experience with the loss of my parents into supporting families who experienced the death of parents,” she said. In the last five years, Ellen has probably made 80 different kinds of phone calls to Temple members, delivered soup to families at services, helped with Sacred Journeys mailings, made soup, and helped support our Kever Avot service each year. Thank you to Ellen and to all the volunteers who are a part of Sacred Journeys. To report a death out of town, please contact Jennifer Phillips at jphillips@tdhs-nw.org or 206.693.3047. Sacred Journeys is always looking for new volunteers. If you are interested, please contact info@tdhs-nw.org. 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. 26

HONORABLE MENSCHENS DANIEL GILBERT

Let us celebrate

Temple member and Seattle Times journalist Daniel Gilbert authored/co-authored three articles that won C.B. Blethen Awards in the categories of investigative reporting and enterprise reporting. The articles covered the topics of Seattle’s government spending, pension costs, and earthquake preparedness. Kol ha kavod, Daniel!

with you! If you have an occasion worthy of marking, please give us a call at 206.323.8486.

SARAH ROSEMONT Congratulations to Sarah on her new role as the full-time Assistant Director at URJ Camp Kalsman! Sarah has been a camper, CIT, counselor, and Unit Head at Camp Kalsman over the past 11 years, and is grateful that she gets to continue doing what she loves to do in the community that she loves the most. Sarah is a senior at the University of Washington and will graduate in the spring with a double major in communications and psychology. While at UW, she was the Development Intern for UW Hillel, was very involved in other clubs on campus, and spent her Sunday mornings teaching at Temple. Mazel tov, Sarah!

DR. KIM SCHRIER "I am honored to be in the company of so many strong women - and men - in this year’s freshman class. We are brimming with excitement and optimism about this New Year. My campaign started, behind the scenes, with my childhood friend Tracy planting the seed about running for office. 'If not now, when, and if not you, who?' I look at this new role as a deeply Jewish one - tikkun olam. I am grateful to everyone who volunteered, contributed, voted, and put their trust in this community pediatrician to help make the 8th district, our country, and the world a better place."

TANA SENN "I am thrilled to return to Olympia for my third term as State Representative, serving much of the Eastside. Additionally, I am honored my colleagues chose me as the new Human Services and Early Learning Committee Chair. The issues around the safety net, children's mental health, homeless youth, child welfare and early learning particularly excite me about my work. I love that Temple, with the social justice emphasis from our rabbis, inspires me and our congregation to take an active role in advocacy, empathy and tikkun olam to help build a stronger, kinder community."

VOLUNTEERING & INVOLVEMENT AT TEMPLE

Voices of Volunteers: Temple’s Homeless Women’s Shelter

Connecting in Song: Temple’s Adult Choir

I first volunteered at the Temple Women’s Shelter out of obligation. But I have found that I truly receive more than I give. I look forward to my shelter night.  It’s grounding for me. My night is a very gentle reminder how fortunate I am, but more than that. This may sound weird, but I enjoy it, and yes, it can be fun. -JoEllen Loeb (pictured with husband Don) Homelessness is such a huge issue in Seattle, and volunteering one night a month at the shelter is a small but meaningful way I can directly make a difference to the ten ladies who stay with us. Comanaging the shelter also gives me an opportunity to support Temple, which is the only synagogue in Seattle that has a permanent shelter, and connect with an amazing team of committed volunteers. -Deborah Ashin, Shelter Advisor I have been volunteering and advising the Temple Homeless Women’s shelter for almost 10 years. It’s such an easy way to fulfill my own goals of tikkun olam. I know many of us want to help others, and we often do so by writing a check, but volunteering at the shelter is unique because it’s a direct connection to those in need. Every night you actually feel like you did some good. You provided a safe and warm place for homeless women. Many times over the years I have heard the ladies say that Temple is their favorite place. They thank you, they hug you. When I leave in the morning, I know for sure that I have repaired the world a little bit at a time. -Karen Lucero, Shelter Advisor Become a volunteer and help Temple provide a safe place to sleep for ten women a night. Volunteers of any gender identification are greatly appreciated. Email shelter@tdhs-nw.org to sign up.

Along with my late wife, Elaine, and two adult daughters (both who were Bat Mitzvahed at Temple) the choir members are my Temple friends who connect this gentile with Judaism.  –Jay Bishop During rehearsals, the collective group process of learning new musical pieces and refining familiar ones is often challenging but always rewarding. Our monthly participation in Friday night services strengthens a feeling of connectedness to the Temple community. –Don Elman I joined choir more than twenty years ago because I love Jewish music and I wanted to sing more. Since then I have enjoyed learning beautiful music while working closely with some quality musicians.  –Kay Greenberg I love to sing. In an effort to be more involved in Temple life and have Temple be more a part of my life, I decided to join the Adult Choir. I have enjoyed learning new prayers and songs and being with this group.   –Susan Lin At my first rehearsal, I was very warmly welcomed, joined Temple very quickly, and over the last 22 plus years the Adult Choir members have been my family & my close friends. –Ronni Wolfe
