LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT | ANNOUNCEMENTS

Traditions and Transitions Spring is a time of transitions. The days are getting longer. Temperatures are rising. Soon, there will be Deli Night, Amudium, confirmation ceremonies, graduation ceremonies and summer vacations.

By Grant Degginger, Board President

This also is a time of some significant transitions here at Temple. We will say a fond farewell to Rabbi Aaron Meyer and his family as he heads to Pittsburgh and becomes the Senior Rabbi of Temple Emanuel. Over the past eight years, Rabbi Meyer has had an enormous impact on the fabric of our congregation— from his role in the Religion School, the Tribe, our social justice efforts, his inspiring sermons and his caring in all manner of lifecycle events. We wish Aaron, Emily, Evelyn and Eli all the best in their

new city and their new congregation. As we say goodbye to Rabbi Meyer, we will be welcoming our new Assistant Rabbi, Avi Fine. For Rabbi Fine, we not only will be saying welcome to Temple De Hirsch Sinai, we also will be saying welcome home to Seattle. The warm summer days also signal a time of transition in our Temple leadership. This is my last Tidings column because my term as president is coming to a close. I want to thank you for the privilege of serving as the Temple president for the past two years. During this time, I have been humbled in seeing what a kind, caring community we have here. Our congregation, our religion school and our preschool all continue to grow. Our clergy continue

to inspire us in worship, in service to each other and to the community. Our board has worked in close partnership with our clergy, our executive director and staff to deliver great programming and timely strategic direction. Temple is about to celebrate its 120th anniversary. This is a major milestone. There are not many institutions in Seattle that can match both our longevity and our impact in the community. I’ll bet that those founding 15 members, including my great, great grandfather, would be pretty impressed that what they started now includes 1,650 families and two campuses. I know I am. There will be many more great moments ahead for this congregation. We look forward to you continuing with us on the journey.

WATCH FOR MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL INFO COMING SOON

With Temple’s current fiscal year coming to an end on June 30, it’s time for the 2019/2020 Membership Renewals to begin! Please watch for your renewal and kindly respond promptly. Thank you for supporting Temple.

LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

Development Corner

By Aaron Alhadeff, Board Development Committee

This is a great time of year to reflect on what we have accomplished over the past year … and on our plans for next year. Our goals over the past year were to build relationships with Temple members, to ensure the best possible responsiveness to our members, and to sharpen our focus on the impact our individual and collective investments have on Temple and on the world. This column will focus on the past year; in the next edition, we will share our plans for the future. We are pleased to report success in all three areas – not that our work is done, but rather that we have made progress and are well positioned to redouble our efforts next year.

By Alison Handlin, Board Development Committee

Our Relationship Managers, Sam Berry and Paula Cooper, have been a great addition to our staff team. They help connect members, both new and existing, with Temple programs and with each other. They have been joining us over the past year as we have met with board members one-on-one and held our initial “community conversations.” These meetings and conversations gave us significant insights into what Temple means to our members. We look forward to hearing from you at one of these conversations in the coming months. We learned that for many Temple members, their own bar/bat mitzvah, or that of their child, was an

enormously significant and transformative event. Nearly everyone we spoke with felt a strong personal, spiritual and communal effect of this critical rite of passage. When Rabbi Weiner and Lisa Horowitz discussed this finding, they realized that Temple should, and could, dedicate more resources to families in the b’nai mitzvah process. As a result, Lisa decided to change Paula Cooper’s portfolio so that she would be dedicated 100% to serving the needs of families in the b’nai mitzvah process, from the year before, during and after a child becomes bar/bat mitzvah. (We are fortunate that Paula is an experienced mom of two b’nai mitzvah so she brings an added dimension of personal understanding and practical advice to the task.)

We also learned how our Temple supports the elderly and infirm with reduced membership (and, in some cases, free membership); how we provide scholarships so that we do not turn away any child who wants a Jewish education; and how we invest in the future with new programs for young adults and young families. We have much to be proud of at Temple and over the next year we look forward to not only hearing from you but also sharing with you many wonderful Temple stories.

We have also sharpened our focus on the tremendous impact of our contributions on Temple. Through our work on the development committee and Board, we have learned so much more about the good Temple accomplishes… that we all accomplish together… through Temple. We have learned how our rabbis advocate in the community for the homeless and hungry; how they have reached out to form alliances with the African American community; how many families are touched and transformed by our rabbis’ and our community’s loving attention at a funeral, bris or bar/bat mitzvah.

RABBI'S CORNER

I Bid You L’hitra’ot — Not Goodbye A 2016 New York Times interview with Lloyd Carney, CEO of a data and storage networking firm, taught me a valuable lesson — with one important caveat — about being an associate rabbi:

“ (My grandfather) would

By Aaron Meyer, Associate Rabbi

be arguing with one of his employees, and he’d call me in and say, ‘Get a bucket of water.’ So I’d bring the bucket of water to the room, and he’d say, ‘Lloydie, put your hand in the water.’ Then I’d take it out, and he’d say to his employee, ‘See that hole that Lloyd left in the water? That’s the hole you’re going to leave when you leave here.’ ” While I can see how this display might intimidate an employee negotiating a salary increase, for me it offered an aspirational model. If the role of the associate rabbi is to a) facilitate connections to Judaism’s common narrative and historical past in ways that build resilience among the next links in the chain of its transmission; b) to increase knowledge of our shared values — middot and mitzvot — in ways that inspire moral choices in every generation; and c) to support the aspirational vision of the senior leaders of our community, then our success is dependent upon tzimtzum, upon getting out of our own way. True choices can only be made, and durable connections realized, without intermediary, such that an associate rabbi can be most successful only when superfluous. I aspire to leave no hole when I’m gone, not

because I believe my time at Temple De Hirsch Sinai didn’t matter but precisely because I know that it did. The model works. Temple’s lay leadership made a strategic commitment and investment in Rabbi Weiner to guide this community: first through a major rabbinic transition for the congregation and now through a time of everincreasing challenges for organizational Jewish life. Rabbi Weiner’s durable, dynamic vision and longterm relationships anchor this community while he, in turn, surrounds himself with junior colleagues who can engage different groups within our large and diverse congregation. The result? Temple is thriving while many other organizations are decreasing in membership and engagement. The model works, and I am so fortunate to have begun my rabbinate at Temple. In my eight years at Temple De Hirsch Sinai, I have been honored to celebrate and to mourn, to learn and to teach with so many people who have shaped not only who I am as a rabbi but as a person. Words fall short of expressing how fortunate I am to have begun my career with mentors like Rabbi Weiner, Lisa Horowitz, and all of my rabbinic and professional colleagues at Temple. They also fail me in fully expressing the many things that I am going to miss: about Temple, about Seattle, and about each of you. You have been my friends, my teachers, and my

May/June/July 2019-5779 Vol. 111, No. 4

sacred community; the people who have truly made Seattle my home. Thank you for opening your hearts to me and soon to Rabbi Avi Fine who will join this community. I have known Rabbi Fine for a number of years and could not be more excited for Temple — and for him. His kindness, studiousness, and menschlichkeit will be a great match for this great community. I did say that there was one important caveat to the story above. Mr. Carney’s allegory omits an important detail: while water might immediately rush into the vacuum, leaving no trace of the hand’s absence, the hand that was removed remains wet. I will carry with me the myriad learning and experiences I have gained at Temple, and no amount of space in Tidings can capture the many ways my rabbinate, and my life, have forever changed. With tremendous gratitude and fondness in my heart, I bid you l’hitra’ot — not goodbye, but my fervent wish to see you again soon.

ADULT ENGAGEMENT: GOOD LIFE

ARTS & ENGAGEMENT

SOCIAL JUSTICE & VOLUNTEERING

Good Life: Creating Purpose & Meaning for the Boomer Generation Temple launched the Good Life initiative with the aspiration to connect with congregants who are quickly approaching, if not already immersed in, a vibrant transition in life where there is more time to focus on oneself and the pursuit of deeper purpose in life. For years, having given so much of themselves to career, community, perhaps child rearing and more, there is a fresh opportunity for Jewish discovery and meaning making. Temple wants to be there with these congregants through the following… The Arts: Opportunities for deepening appreciation of music, theater, and more while (re)connecting with existing friends and meeting new people. Events will be local and through travel.  Lifelong Learning: Opportunities to fill in gaps left from earlier education, often wryly described as “wasted on the young?” A blending of Jewish wisdom with contemporary issues. Includes both local and immersive travel experiences. Wellness: In support of the “aging in place” phenomenon, Temple offers proactive, preventative education for healthy aging. Opportunities include mindfulness practices, navigating the logistics of health care, and emotional support around illness and healing ­— both in caring for others and caring for one’s self. 

Creating Purpose & Meaning for the Boomer Generation TRAVEL & CULTURE

Volunteering: Opportunities for Boomers to give back to the community and share wisdom and experience with those in need of guidance.

HEALING & WHOLENESS

Rabbi Kate Speizer, Temple’s Adult Engagement Director, is the Good Life liaison and is ready to partner with any and all who are ready to get involved. Please reach out to her at kspeizer@tdhs-nw.org or 206.693.3046.

BRIDGE FAMILY RELIGION SCHOOL & YOUTH

Lifelong Connections to the Jewish Community This year, our 4th grade students spent their second semester immersed in our project based learning unit on Israel. As part of the semester-long study, our classes on both campuses are paired with 4th grade classrooms in Israel to help make Israel “real.” Our Seattle campus students are paired with a school in Rishon L’tzion near Tel Aviv. Our Bellevue students are paired with a school in Jerusalem—a school that happens to focus fully on an egalitarian approach to Jewish observance within the secular school system. After a recent Skype exchange, one of our 4th grade teachers wrote this reflection: On Sunday, March 10, the 4th grade students in Bellevue arrived early By Stacey Delcau, and gathered around a laptop eager to start a live RJE, Director of video chat. As part of our curriculum on Israel this Education year, we teamed up with an Israeli 4th grade class in Jerusalem for a pen-pal project in the modern age. The call connected and our students leaned forward waiving and smiling. We had exchanged introductory videos earlier in the semester sharing our names, favorite activities, information about our communities, and dance moves. For the live video chat each class took turns asking questions and the kids were excited to learn about the interests they shared with their Israeli counterparts, such as dancing, soccer, favorite TV shows, and playing the videogame Fortnite. Our sister class sang snippets from the most popular songs in Israel right now and we all stood up for a rendition of Hatikvah, Israel’s national anthem. We’ll continue our cultural exchange throughout the semester by taste-testing Israeli snacks, crafting dioramas of five important Israeli figures, and continuing to video chat with our friends across the world.

12th grader Noah Weinstein’s comments about his experience on the senior trip to Eastern Europe.

Going on the senior trip this year was a great experience. I expanded my bubble of knowledge about Jews in America to knowledge about Jews in Europe as well. While growing up in America, we learn all about the Holocaust and how it affected us, but we can’t truly understand it until we place ourselves there. Or at least try to. Something fascinating that I learned was that people in countries where the Holocaust happened are still, even to this day, very quiet about their Judaism. This is the complete opposite of our loud and proud Jewish community and many others in America. I remember it being described as a sort of timidness that people have towards being Jewish and I was surprised about how many people hide there Jewish identity because of this lingering fear. One of my favorite parts of the trip was the first day we arrived in Budapest. We went to a local JCC, met some holocaust survivors, met with some members of the youth group, and then later that night we participated in a service. Even though the service was hard to follow along through the thick Hungarian pronunciations of Hebrew, I was able to find myself singing along to songs that I had learned as a kid. The prayers and songs were the same 5,464 miles away. It was a sort of comforting experience because when being exposed to so many new things for ten days straight, it was almost a relief to participate in something more familiar. This trip was a fantastic adventure, spanning three countries in ten days and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to participate. Thanks to all who contributed in creating this program, I had a great time.

Temple Connects to Israel via Music This year in the Bridge Family Religion School, our music madrichim leaders at the Seattle campus, Jordan and Julia, have been participating in a song exchange program with a group of Israeli teenagers in a series of Zoom calls after T’fillah on Sunday mornings. They have engaged in online interactions with young song leaders at a progressive congregation, Mevasseret Tzion, in Israel. In the first session, Julia taught the Israeli teens an American Chanukah song (“Chocolate Gelt” by Ellen Allard) which they amazingly learned to play and sing on the spot, chords and all. “We are very uplifted by the experience”, noted Julia. In the second exchange, the Israeli teens taught Jordan and Julia the clever version they had written in Hebrew, which was passed along to the music classes that week. In the last session, the Israeli students taught a classic Israeli song for Tu Bishevat. We look forward to continuing this music exchange and hope to expand the program soon to include a group of song leaders from New Rochelle, New York. Yasher Koach!

YAHRZEIT OBSERVANCE

To add a name to the weekly yahrzeit list read aloud on Shabbat, please contact Jennifer Phillips, Executive Assistant, at 206.693.3047 or jphillips@tdhs-nw.org, by 5:00 PM on Monday the week of the yahrzeit. Please also contact Jennifer 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

A Yahrzeit is a Community Relationship 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. A few years after Sacred Journeys began to make condolence calls to Temple members who experienced a death in their families, we decided to follow up with our Temple families and contact them at the time of the first anniversary of their loved one’s death. Charlene Polyansky, Sacred Journeys volunteer, took leadership for this project. Today we contact every family member who has suffered a loss around the time of the first anniversary of the death with a phone call, a personal note and a yahrzeit candle. Eleven volunteers work with Charlene to call each Temple family member to support them at this first yahrzeit. Each volunteer makes 3-4 calls. As a group we come together twice a year to put the candles in a box with a note and get the candles ready to send. The rest is all Charlene! She makes sure the box goes out in the mail, that a personal call is made to each recipient, and that the family gets a personal note. In 2018 there were 85 candles mailed to family members who had lost a loved one. The recipients of those candles and calls? “Most of them are grateful to have the candle and to be contacted by someone who has had the experience of commemorating the first yahrzeit,” says Charlene. “We hope these calls and candles let our Temple family know that they are not alone that first year.” Sacred Journeys is always happy to have new volunteers make calls, help with mailings and make soup. Please contact Jennifer Phillips at jphillips@tdhs-nw.org if you are interested in finding out more about Sacred Journeys or volunteering with us.

SISTERHOOD (WRJ) & GIFT SHOP

Sisterhood of TDHS

ON OUR CALENDARS TUESDAYS WITH SISTERHOOD CREATE YOUR OWN JUDAIC CERAMIC PLATE WITH SMART WITH ART

By Amy Arensberg, Sisterhood Shalom! We have had a lot of fun and interesting events these past few months. In February, we had our Tu B’shevat seder and planting event all ready to go, but snow… snow…snow unfortunately led to the cancellation of what would have been a delicious and educational evening. In March we held our 1st ever Hamantaschen cookie swap! We had a great time baking, admiring and tasting the beautiful creations. We then added a few of each to pretty bags and each took home an assortment to share, (or not). We had several left over, so we divided them up and made bags of these goodies for Temple staff. In April we were educated and supported by the Rivkin Center CanCan Education Program. This program is all about putting people into action about their health and giving them tools for early detection and prevention of breast cancer, as well as self-advocacy.

TUE • MAY 7 • 6:30 PM BELLEVUE CAMPUS HOUSE PROGRAM TBA TUE • JUNE 4 • 6:30 PM BELLEVUE CAMPUS HOUSE

The Pacific North West WRJ Retreat at Camp Kalsman, which took place April 26th - 28th, was amazing! There were fun activities, plenty of time to relax, stimulating seminars and best of all, Sisterhood. Our events usually take place the first Tuesday of each month, with others scheduled various times throughout the year.

HONORABLE MENSCHENS KENNY AND MARLEEN ALHADEFF Mazel tov to congregants Kenny and Marleen Alhadeff on winning Olivier Awards recently in London for the new musical Come From Away! The Laurence Olivier Awards, or simply the Olivier Awards, are presented annually by the Society of London Theatre to recognize excellence. We hope that you will consider joining Temple to see Come From Away and other plays on a trip next spring to New York City. Please contact Jennifer Phillips at jphillips@tdhs-nw.org for more information.

GENEVA SHAUNETTE Kudos to Geneva Shaunette, daughter of past president, Gail Mautner and Mario Shaunette, who along with two partners, has opened a shared ‘community’ kitchen space in Telluride, CO. Understanding the need of culinary creators to have space in a commercial grade kitchen in which to make their visions a reality, the trio created the Ghost Pocket Kitchen. Kol HaKvod Geneva on your community spirit!

LEAH ISQUITH-DICKER Leah earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Biological Anthropology from the University of Washington. Her dissertation research examined the relationships between women’s social networks, food security, and health in an informal urban settlement in Lima, Peru. During her time at UW, Leah also completed a Master of Public Health in the Department of Global Health. She is looking forward to continuing contributions to innovative solutions addressing challenges in global health and international development through Seattle-area institutions. Mazel Tov Leah!

MEGAN BRUMER Temple was delighted to host Dean Josh Holo of the Hebrew Union College, along with rabbinic student Megan Brumer, who offered a drash at services and spent time with Bridge Family Religion School students. Megan is the first recipient of a scholarship at HUC set up by Temple members several years ago to honor Rabbi Weiner’s 25 years in the rabbinate. Rabbi Weiner expressed his gratitude: “I can think of no better way to honor my tenure as a rabbi than this generous investment in the future of Jewish communal leadership.”

HONORABLE MENSCHENS HANNAH ROBIN Having graduated from Santa Clara University in Public Health in 2017, and awaiting a future in dental school, Hannah was recently accepted to the Ya’el Fellowship program in Israel, where she will be working in small communities outside Tel Aviv, specifically connecting with Ethiopian Israelis and the Arab population in Israel. She will be teaching English and providing community services starting in fall 2019. Congrats Hannah!

JULIA LOTZKAR While living in Israel, Julia took a trip with her school to Poland, where she visited Auschwitz and Birkaneau, and snapped this emotional picture. “I think it is so amazing that 80 years later I have the opportunity to walk these grounds with my Israeli flag.” Julia, you are inspiring!

THE SPICY CHILI GIRL CREW Social action volunteers Lisa Horowitz, Holly Levin, Stephanie Carmel, Dawn Thomas, and Melanie Miller (not pictured) spent an evening cooking for the homeless. Dubbing themselves “The Spicy Chili Girl Crew”, they enjoyed making a meaningful meal together in community. For more social action volunteer projects, please visit Temple’s website.

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

THE TRIBE (20s & 30s)

Summertime Introductions By Rabbi Callie Schulman Summertime in Seattle is simply the best. We know you want to be out in it, and we do too! We will continue to offer our now-annual summer events like Kayaking & Margaritas at Aqua Verde in Seattle (July 21), summer BBQ (August 3rd), and a newer addition of Paddle-boarding & Picnicking on the East Side (August 24th). We’re also proud to continue our partnership with The Summit at First Hill to present “Senior Prom,” (June 30), a chance to spend the evening connecting with the residents there in a fun and festive manner. Our hallmark Fourth Shabbat services will take place on May 24th (no dinner that night), and June 28th (dinner included), but takes a small hiatus in July as we join with the larger Temple community to welcome Shabbat at Luther Burbank Park (July 26th). We look forward to connecting with you at any number of our events! For more information, please visit our Facebook page TDHS - The Tribe.

We also want to introduce the two Steering Committee Co-chairs ALYSSA BOBMAN COHEN Having grown up at TDHS, Alyssa resumed her involvement with The Tribe upon returning to the area after graduate school in 2013. She has always found great joy and value in community engagement across generations, whether through her professional career as Director of Volunteer Services with Kline Galland, or in the Jewish young adult community as Tribe Co-Chair. Over the years, Alyssa has made many wonderful friends and connections through Tribe programming. In 2015, Alyssa even met her now-husband at one of The Tribe’s many fun social events! Both she and her husband, Michael, now serve on the Tribe Steering Committee and enjoy participating in many Tribe events throughout the year.

JESSICA ROSE Jessica is continuing her role as a co-chair, and she has been involved at Temple De Hirsch Sinai in some capacity for nearly 10 years. When she’s not attending or helping plan events for The Tribe, Jess can be found at a dog park with her two dogs or near the water. Jess’ day job is working for the local nonprofit, The Allen Institute, and she appreciates being part of the open science revolution that is taking place in South Lake Union. Having grown up here in the Seattle area, she still loves calling the Pacific Northwest home.

TEMPLE ANNOUNCEMENTS TEMPLE IS GOING GREEN & YOU CAN HELP!

CELEBRATE AT TEMPLE

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.

Celebrate your simchah (joyous event) at Temple. Many families hold celebrations - b’nai mitzvah receptions, anniversary parties, baby namings - and other family gatherings in the Sidney Z. Jaffe Room or other Temple spaces.

WEDDINGS AT TEMPLE

Have you thought about having your wedding at Temple? For more information, please contact Joy Rousso, Director of Operations, at jrousso@tdhs-nw.org.

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.
