LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

Letter From Our Board President Summer truly is a special time in Seattle and Bellevue. The sun is out, highlighting the incredible natural beauty that surrounds us. We relish every possible moment outside in what typically is the best weather anywhere in the country.

by Grant Degginger, Board President

Here at Temple, summer is a time of transition. We have just celebrated the completion of another great year at the Bridge Family Religion School and the Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool, and our team already is busy preparing for the next year. Our clergy is planning for the High Holy Days. July 1 marked the start of our new fiscal year and with that were transitions on our Board of Directors. In this edition of Tidings, we have dedicated some space to introducing you to your board. This promises to be a particularly important year for the board as we renew our work in earnest, with an intense focus on planning for Temple’s future. This year, we will focus on crafting a plan to re-envision our Seattle campus physically and creating a master plan for our Bellevue property. The time is ripe for both these efforts. Temple owns over two acres of land in the heart of Seattle. Our buildings are showing significant signs of age—with the Temple center building almost at the century mark, our religion school building nearing 70, the sanctuary almost 60 and the chapel nearing 50. Our Seattle campus needs renovations and updates so that we can continue to offer the excellent education and programs that

our community wants and deserves. In Bellevue, we need a master plan to guide our acquisition of nearby land to meet our programmatic and parking needs. The planning effort has been going on behindthe-scenes for some time, as we lay the foundation (pun intended) to bring some of the important questions we face to our congregation. What should our Seattle campus look like? How can we best serve our community’s needs today and for the next generation? How can we accommodate growth in Bellevue? The need for these planning efforts could not come at a better time for Temple and it is a sign of an active, growing and thriving congregation. We are financially healthy, our congregation, Bridge Family Religion School and Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool continue to grow, and our rabbis are planning a new year full of new ways to engage with Temple. With a renewed focus on programming for those of us who are “Baby Boomers” while continuing to refine our existing programs, I am confident that the new year will see Temple go from strength to strength. Wishing you and your family a fun and relaxing summer. Enjoy the long days. Warmest regards, Grant

GOOD LIFE: CREATING PURPOSE & MEANING IN THE BOOMER YEARS

Temple is working to provide our “Boomers” an opportunity to inspire and deepen your involvement within our Temple family and the broader community by creating wideranging programs and experiences in the arts, culture, travel, wellness, volunteer and learning arenas. While Temple has planned a number of unique opportunities, we seek input and suggestions from this community to provide more relevant, impactful and engaging ideas to better support you. Watch for more information at the High Holy Days!

LEADERSHIP & DEVELOPMENT

Demystifying Development As Chair of the Board’s Development Committee, I am often asked “What is development? And what does the Development Committee do?” While some may believe that “development” is just a code word for “fundraising” – and that certainly is one aspect – I believe “development” encompasses so much more. The resources we help raise, along with your generous annual membership contributions, give our rabbis and our community the wherewithal to develop:

by Aaron Alhadeff, Chair, Board Development Committee

• • • •

“As my parents planted for me, so do I plant for my children.” —Talmud

A deep sense of community Learning Spiritual and intellectual journeys Shared timeless values

All these resources allow us to offer a Jewish home to everyone who seeks one. Your investment in Temple – whether through your annual contribution, a gift to the High Holy Day campaign, or a legacy gift through a bequest to be realized well in the future – all these investments pay dividends to our community today and tomorrow. Every contribution is meaningful. Every contribution helps us further develop and strengthen our community. The Development Committee oversees fundraising events and appeals such as the High Holy Day campaign; helps plan special campaigns like a capital campaign; and ensures that Temple has a holistic approach to fundraising that provides the resources needed to meet our congregation's needs. The Committee also learns from our congregants and welcomes your ideas about how we can continue to develop Temple so that it goes from strength to strength into the future. Please let us know your thoughts and ideas.

Our heartfelt gratitude to those who have recently notified us of their intentions to include Temple in their legacy planning: Anonymous (2) Irv & Laura Karl Scott & Jocelyn Isaacs

The Temple has always been a foundation for our family and friends in Seattle. Our legacy gift helps support and ensure that our Temple’s traditions and our Jewish Community continue to grow and flourish.

RABBI'S CORNER AND YOUNG ADULT ENGAGEMENT

Sustenance for the Jewish Soul We’re very lucky at Temple De Hirsch Sinai. Not only are we home to one of the most robust Reform Jewish communities in the Pacific Northwest, we are a regionally recognized leader in the overall Jewish community of our region. This is no small feat, nor is it one that we take for granted. It situates us to be uniquely visible and vocal in issues of import to our Jewish community, and allows for us to be experimental in our efforts to keep up with changing demographics, trends and needs of an increasingly diverse Jewish community.

by Callie Schulman, Associate Rabbi

Over this past year I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the greater Seattle Jewish community through the lens of young adult engagement. Our Young Adult group, the Tribe, has been a pillar of that community. A few years ago, the Tribe was among the first organizations to bring together what is now known as the Young Adult Engager Network: a group of organizations working with the same demographic in Jewish Seattle who wish to bolster each other’s work, rather than exist in competition with one another. When I tell colleagues in other cities about this network, they’re blown away. In many cities, Jewish organizations posture and elbow each other out of the way for the attention of Jewish young adults. Not in Seattle; the organizations strive together to offer robust offerings for the next generation of Jews. The young adult demographic is ever-shifting, as people move out of their twenties and into their thirties; a fluid time that is more about “stage” than

“age.” A time when people launch their careers, find partners, start families. Someone recently asked what the Tribe has to offer that other Young Adult Engager Network partners do not. (In other words: why might someone seek us out instead of another organization?) For those looking to plant roots in Seattle, we offer an established home, with intergenerational offerings. Around our table of Tribe lay leaders there will have been four babies born this year alone. For these young adults, we become a Jewish home for their new families. For those whose stay in Seattle might be more fleeting, we offer the celebration of Jewish time, with monthly young adult-oriented Shabbat services and dinners, and annual holiday celebrations that help anchor and develop their Jewish identity. I mention all of this in order to highlight the role that we fill in looking toward the future; not only our own, but of the entire Jewish community. It is said that a rising tide lifts all boats, and so we pool our efforts to address the trends and needs in our Jewish community in stewardship for generations to come. Yes, we hope that the young adult Jews we engage will ultimately join us as members of Temple; but we also know that many of them will continue to relocate, as this demographic is one of greater geographical mobility than any before. We count upon the Jewish-soul’s need for connection and sustenance, and are grateful to be able to offer it to so many.

JENNIFER ROSEN MEADE PRESCHOOL

Building for the Future at Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool After three weeks immersed in nature, science, and Maccabee sports games, Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool summer camp has wrapped up, and it’s back to school. We’ll welcome back our families with a back-to-school barbeque, which will provide the opportunity for families to get to know each other, meet our teachers, and see our classrooms. We look forward to a Sukkot celebration in September, with Tot Shabbat in the Sukkah and harvest activities for the whole family. In October, we will observe Simchat Torah at Tot Shabbat, with our children getting an up-close experience with the Torah. November will bring Intergenerational Day, during which we’ll welcome all relatives for Tot Shabbat and some special family activities.

By Shannon Solomon, Early Childhood Education Director

We are excited to be expanding the offerings of our adult/child classes through our Yad b’Yad (Hand in Hand) programming, which will take place in both Bellevue and Seattle. In addition to PEPS, Kisses & Knishes, and Bagels & Blocks, we will be including new family classes such as music and movement, Hebrew song sessions, and Hebrew story time. Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool now provides lunch. All meals are served family style, meaning the children sit down together and learn to serve themselves, pass the serving plates, say please and thank you, and clean up. This provides a wealth of opportunities for self-help skills, as well as for conversation. It is an amazing privilege to be part of a program that is still going strong after 26 years, particularly because it is in memory of Jennifer Rosen Meade. Our teachers are here to make a positive difference in children’s lives, and to foster a love of Temple from a young age. We’re also here to help build community connections for young families, who are creating relationships and memories we hope will last a lifetime. To learn more about Jennifer Rosen Meade Preschool and our other early childhood programs, contact Shannon Solomon at ssolomon@tdhs-nw.org or 425.559.2571.

BRIDGE FAMILY RELIGION SCHOOL & YOUTH

SAGE Advice: Raising Children Through Changing Times The Bridge Family Religion School is excited to partner with the Adult Engagement Program for the 5779 school year (2018-2019) in order to provide our community with Jewish guidance on best practices in raising children, especially when it comes to their social emotional well-being. Jewish tradition and modern science have come together to provide compelling ways in which we can instill strong self-confidence and positive Jewish identity in an increasing complex world. SAGE Advice: Raising Children Through Changing Times is Temple’s vehicle for responding to this challenge.

by Stacey Delcau, RJE, Director of Education

More and more, we find that a number of extended family members are actively involved in helping to provide care in children's day-to-day lives. Temple is uniquely poised to provide resources for each of these family members and will invest in training for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. SAGE Advice will run on Sunday mornings, partnered with Temple’s Sunday Study in Seattle program, with monthly sessions provided on our Bellevue campus. Topics addressed will include mental and social well-being, effective communication, spirituality/ prayer, Israel connections, and Derech Eretz (the “right” way of doing things).

& Rabbi Kate Speizer, Adult Engagement Coordinator

Goals of SAGE Advice include: •

Connecting parents/caregivers to each other as peer resources

Reducing isolation, specifically around child-raising

Teaching Jewish values as they relate to building self confidence

Strengthening bonds between families, our Temple community, and our clergy

To launch our year of learning, we will dive in with the topic of anxiety in our children. It will begin with a screening of the movie Angst (angstmovie.com), a 43-minute film that explores anxiety: its causes, effects and what we can do about it. It will continue with a panel of mental health experts, some of whom are featured in the film, helping us to uncover concrete ways in which our Jewish values can infuse our approaches to raising our children. We invite everyone in our Temple family to participate in this important learning community we aim to build. We know there are so many people in the lives of each child; we hope to engage learners across the generations in this endeavor.

BRIDGE FAMILY RELIGION SCHOOL - SCHOLARSHIP FUNDING SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS AT TEMPLE

“Establishing a fund creates a lasting contribution to the future of our Temple…The opportunity to create a fund is really within the reach of our Temple membership; it is not just restricted to the most affluent congregants.” - Dr. Melvin Freeman, Past President The scholarship funds featured below are two of the many named funds that support programs at Temple. We are deeply grateful to the donors who have established the funds, as well as those who contribute to them. For information about establishing a fund at Temple, please contact Lisa Horowitz at lhorowitz@tdhs-nw.org.

LOUIS S. LEVY & ZELMA L. LEVY ENDOWMENT FUND: BENEZRA BENEVOLENT FUND: Raymond (z”l) and Joyce Benezra established this fund in 1997 to help families in need receive critical financial assistance in order to attend Temple services and programs. “It gives me joy that I can help somebody,” Joyce said. The assistance provided by the fund includes support for the b’nai mitzvah process and Religion School.

This year, the Benezra Benevolent Fund supported Religion School students on their trip to Spain. Joyce received several thank you notes from students who would not have otherwise been able to go on the trip. “I think that’s a wonderful opportunity. How exciting!” Joyce expressed. “I’m just thrilled that it can help somebody.”

NEW BFRS TUITION WAIVER

As part of Temple’s commitment to education, Bridge Family Religion School has a new policy that for families with three or more children, the least expensive tuition fee will be waived. From Rabbi Weiner: "The Talmud teaches that amongst the duties of a parent toward a child, the teaching of Torah, the passing down of the timeless values of our tradition, is paramount. As partners with parents in this sacred endeavor, we strive to balance providing for the basic needs of the community with empowering parents to fulfill this mitzvah. Toward that end, our new policy of lowering tuition for families with multiple students is our way of working with you to sustain Judaism for the next generation."

This fund was created in 2010 by a bequest from the estate of longtime Temple member Louis Levy (z”l) with the purpose of providing support and scholarships for Religion School programs. The fund also memorializes Louis’s mother Zelma Levy (z”l), who taught in the Religion School for 50 consecutive years. “He carried on his mother’s dedication to Temple in a quiet way by establishing this fund, and honoring what his mother’s contribution had been to Temple,” said Dr. Melvin Freeman, a cousin of Louis. Richard Arensberg, Louis’s first cousin, remarked, “He did not throw a nickel away. He saved it to do some good.” Louis served in the Army during World War II, and was active in the Green Lake Masonic Lodge. Zelma was very active with the Eastern Star, the women’s division, presiding as Grand-matron of the State of Washington. “He was a good sport and a person that could be trusted,” Richard said of Louis. Richard also explained that Louis had bought the men’s clothing store of Sid Jaffe, namesake of Temple’s Sidney Z. Jaffe auditorium. “He was a very delightful, very industrious, very modest individual,” remembers Melvin. Today, this fund creates new opportunities for Temple’s youth. “The kids learn Hebrew, not just for prayers, but for conversation. Kids are going to Israel because of sponsorships from Temple, and that’s amazing,” Richard commented. Melvin expressed, “It’s important for young people to really understand our heritage and how it is applicable to today’s living. With a Jewish ethical background, one can really do wonders for the world.”

Richard and Dianne Arensberg are themselves enduring supporters of education at Temple, recently establishing the Richard & Dianne Arensberg Music Education Fund. Dr. Melvin and Nanette Freeman are also devoted to our Temple, having founded the Freeman Kol Nidre Fund.

HIGH HOLY DAYS PREPARATION & INFORMATION

Dare to Prepare There are some things that require great preparation, like achieving excellence in sports, or acquiring the engineering expertise to build bridges, or the medical training to operate on the nervous systems. And yet…when it comes to the state of the soul and its well being, we often give short shrift to the task, and a length of excuses in rationalizing our lack of preparedness.

by Daniel Weiner, Senior Rabbi

|

John Wooden’s famous axiom, the basis of numerous UCLA basketball titles and the successful character-building of student athletes, could well have been conceived by the Sages of Israel as easily as by the Wizard of Westwood. To truly benefit from and become transformed by the High Holidays, we can’t just show up on “game day” and expect “instant karma.” As with anything of importance and relevance in our lives, we need to lay the groundwork of attentiveness to challenge, visioning

of objective and commitment to implementation in order to make the most of our opportunity. Jewish tradition provides the entire prior month of Elul to get our spiritual house in order, a time to heighten our awareness, consider our attitudes and inspire our actions toward making the most of the ten day period of reelection, repentance, and re-jew-venation. If making the time to prepare is necessary for the WSDOT driving exam or a bicycle trip through Tuscany, isn’t it critical when honestly confronting our most intimate selves in the presence of the Ultimate Judge? I wish you and hours a Happy and Healthy New Year, filled with sumptuous meals, inviting homes and open hearts…all well prepared!

TEMPLE'S HISTORIC TORAH SCROLL

Reading from Temple’s Holocaust Scroll As Lucas Vorkoper prepared for his Bar Mitzvah this past April, he decided to take advantage of a unique opportunity. With his Bar Mitzvah service taking place the weekend closest to Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Lucas decided to read from Temple’s Holocaust scroll. On loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust of London is a Czech Memorial Sifre Torah collected in Prague during the Nazi occupation. This Torah is from the desolated Jewish community of Brno, Moravia, and is one of 1,564 scrolls acquired from Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia with the help of Artia, a Czechoslovak State Cultural Agency. The scrolls were initially housed at Westminster Synagogue, but many are now distributed around the world. The scroll at Temple was written at the beginning of the 19th century. Temple doesn’t use the scroll often, in order to better protect and preserve it, but we do use it once a year at the Shabbat closest to Yom HaShoah.  For Lucas, reading from the scroll at his Bar Mitzvah was a broadening experience.  “The connection of the story of this Torah surviving the Holocaust to my special day expanded my perspective on what it meant to be a Bar Mitzvah,” said Lucas.

Rabbi Meyer reflected, “The opportunity to have a young person from the congregation reading from this historic scroll on the day of his Bar Mitzvah shows the longevity and continuity of Jewish tradition. The best way to remember the tragic events of the past is the vibrant continuity of Jewish tradition into our present and future.”

SACRED JOURNEYS

Sacred Journeys: A Choice I Made by Toby Donner, Sacred Journeys Volunteer

In April, a long-time Temple member, Blanche Shindell, passed away. As a volunteer for Sacred Journeys, I made a condolence call to her husband Bob. As with all of our calls, I introduced myself as a Temple member and volunteer for Sacred Journeys, and expressed my condolences to him. I also asked him if he would like to have chicken soup and challah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I think I would like that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Often, we ask congregants if they are going to Temple that Friday night and offer to meet them and deliver chicken soup.

Sacred Journeys a caregiving, mourning and bereavement initiative

Looking at my calendar, however, I noticed two things: I was going to Temple the next day for a meeting, and I had a free afternoon. I picked up the soup from our Temple freezer and gave Bob a call to let him know I would deliver the soup. This personal choice I made ended up giving me a very joyful day. I was able to bring soup and challah to a grieving congregant whom I had never met, and I made a new friend in the process. It turned out that Bob, unlike me, was a life-long Temple member. We visited for quite a while as I listened to stories about Temple from a historical vantage point I would never have known. Bob had been a Religion School teacher for many years. He had known rabbis and cantors for decades. He had stories I would never have heard. As a newer transplant to Seattle and to Temple De Hirsch Sinai, it was relaxing and fun to hear these old stories and reflections. I think Bob enjoyed our visit too, but for me, it was an opportunity to feel connected to my Temple family now and across the years. We also talked about Blanche--her life, and his great loss. Making calls or delivering soup and challah for Sacred Journeys is a meaningful part of my life. I hope to bring some support to Temple members who have suffered a loss, just as I have in my life. On that afternoon, I am not sure who felt better--the Sacred Journeys volunteer or the Temple member. I truly believe it is a win-win situation! 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, experience the decline and death of a family member, and/or facing a period of mourning and bereavement.

SISTERHOOD (WRJ)

Sisterhood Fall News by Elizabeth Goertzel Sisterhood is planning a fun-filled 2018-2019 Calendar of events. A big change for this year is that we are having events almost every month on the first Tuesday of the month. Each month, we’ll start with a short meeting to discuss Sisterhood business and then have an exciting program. These Tuesdays with Sisterhood programs from 6:30-9:00 PM will often be held in the Bellevue House (across the parking lot from Temple). We hope you’ll put a placeholder in your calendar for Tuesdays and plan to spend them with us – listening to a speaker, learning a new craft, partaking in holiday rituals or discussing current events. Each month will be something different. If you have programming ideas, would like to join Sisterhood, volunteer, get involved, or RSVP for an event, email sisterhood@tdhs-nw.org. "Like" Sisterhood of TDHS on Facebook to connect with us and stay up to date on Sisterhood events and programs.

With a Grateful Heart: Letter from Valerie Shields

Valerie at the special Shabbat service celebrating her tenure. Photo by Jim Collier. The humbling celebration that you afforded me and Kia on June 1 has left us with deeply felt gratitude that will run through us both for the rest of our lives. This note is to extend my personal thanks to all of the Temple congregation. Allow me to repeat my thankfulness for the joyful and deeply felt thoughts and emotions shared that evening in words and songs by so many of the Temple’s congregation. I also treasure the notes and gifts I received. My deep appreciation also is for the twenty years of being welcomed and encouraged by the entire Temple family. I thank God for my time with you. You provided the opportunity and support to do what I deeply love – creating and offering music in the context of worship and helping others to discover and develop their gifts. I am grateful for the young people who responded to the challenge of becoming leaders of prayer as well as the faithful service and friendship of the members of the Adult Choir. Behind my fruitful tenure has been the leadership, guidance and brilliance of Rabbi Weiner. Our partnership has been one of shared vision. In like manner, in recent years, Rabbi Meyer has blessed me with his wisdom, support and keen attention to details. They provided musical, spiritual and practical guidance. I am deeply indebted for their trust, confidence and unending encouragement. Their partnership with each other is exemplary and among the finest I have experienced in decades of working closely with clergy. My gratitude also goes to Lisa Horowitz and her staff for the countless ways they have offered assistance behind the scenes. I know that the song will continue under very capable new musical leadership. I cherish my time at TDHS, the abiding friendships I made with many of you, and will not be a stranger. You will always have a place in my heart. Shalom, Valerie Shields

MUSIC AT TEMPLE

Introducing Temple’s New Musical Leaders

Douglas Cleveland

Chava Mirel

Jacki Sullivan

Jacob Finkle

Douglas joined us as an interim accompanist during our last High Holidays. He will serve as a Musician in Residence for the High Holidays and throughout the year. Doug was born in Tacoma and was raised in Olympia. He received his bachelor’s degree from the Eastman School of Music, a master’s degree from Indiana University and a doctorate from the Graduate Theological Foundation at Oxford University. He has been on the music faculties of St. Olaf College, Northwestern University and the University of Washington. He is currently Director of Music at St. Thomas Medina Episcopal Church. He has performed three times on the Seattle Symphony Organ Series at Benaroya Hall. He has recorded several CD’s--his most recent being Douglas Cleveland Plays Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago.

Many of you have known Chava for many years as a member of our Temple and Seattle Jewish community. She has worked with us part-time over the last year for worship services and in the Religion School. We are expanding her role to encompass more of the same, with special involvement in our JRM Preschool. Chava is a composer, singer, multiinstrumentalist, recording artist and prayer leader. With three decades of experience teaching in Jewish schools and 25 years of prayer leading, Chava is now emerging as a new voice in Jewish music, and is honored to be the Musician in Residence here at Temple. She also tours communities nationally, visiting synagogues, conferences, camps and festivals. Chava is now a fellow with the Hadar Institute's Rising Song Fellowship led by Joey Weisenberg.

Jacki will join us as a second High Holiday Accompanist and Youth Choral Director. Jacki was born and raised in upstate New York in the Adirondack Mountains. She received her Bachelor’s of Music Education and Piano Accompanying degrees from Shenandoah University where she majored in piano with a voice and flute minor, and a master’s degree in Music Education from the College of St. Rose. Jackie has been teaching vocal music and music theatre in public and independent schools for over twenty years. She is Founder and Director of Tomoro’s Theatre Stars Summer Theatre Camp and has had a studio for private piano and voice for many years. She is currently teaching at St. Thomas School, and her students recently performed at Benaroya Hall with The Canadian Tenors. She is also serving on the board of Seattle Pro Musica under the direction of Karen P. Thomas.

Jacob will join us as Adult Choir Director. Jacob is well regarded in the community as the Director of the Seattle Jewish Chorale. He earned a Master of Music in Choral Conducting and Certification in Music Education from the University of Washington in 2015. He has conducted and participated in myriad festivals and events the world over. He currently conducts the Intergenerational Choir of University Unitarian Church, conducts the High Holiday Choir at Herzl Ner Tamid, and teaches music at Silver Firs Elementary School.

Gratitude to Temple’s Volunteers:

Honorable Menschen:

Mazel tov to Alan Waldbaum (photo on left) and Aaron Alhadeff (photo on right), two of Temple’s exceptional volunteers. Alan and Aaron were honored at the June 15 Board Installation & Volunteer Appreciation service for their hard work and dedication to our Temple community.

Congratulations to Temple's 4th grader Lilah Cone-Kennedy, who received the Seymour Kaplan award at Genesee Hill Elementary School. Students were encouraged to think about who in their classroom was a "humanitarian," helping others without thinking about what they received in return and participating in charitable work. Lilah was nominated by her peers. The award is named for Seymour Kaplan, director of the Northwest’s Anti-Defamation League from 1956 until his death in 1975. Kol ha kavod, Lilah!

Alan Waldbaum and Aaron Alhadeff

Alan Waldbaum received the President’s Award for his extraordinary commitment to and talent for teaching in the Religion School. “Alan’s passion for teaching is contagious,” commented Grant Degginger, Board President. “He’s a blessing to our school and to our community.” Aaron Alhadeff was awarded the Piha Young Leadership Award, created by Valerie and Stanley Piha. Vice president at Temple, Aaron serves on the Executive Committee and chairs the Development Committee. “He is an exceptional representative of a multi-generational family who has really left their mark here at Temple,” said Jessica Piha, presenter of the award.

Temple’s Confirmation Class of 1958 Reunion This past May, about 35 members of Temple’s 1958 Confirmation Class gathered for a reunion over a kiddush luncheon at Temple. Temple member Lee Weinstein was one of the main organizers, along with classmates Susie

Kadish, Joyce Kates Sundin, and Susan Rottenberg. During the planning, the committee tracked down over 60 members of the 81 in their confirmation class, primarily using word of mouth. The reunion was a

day of reconnecting to each other and to Temple, with some people seeing each other for the first time since their confirmation service in 1958. Some of the participants came from out of town in order to attend the reunion.

The group shared memories of growing up at Temple, and of their classmates, rabbis, and teachers. “People were blown away by the chapel, because it has all of the things in there from the old Temple, and that’s what we

August/September/October 2018/5778-9 Vol. 111, No. 1

all remember,” said Lee, who noted that this class was the first to graduate in the (then) new sanctuary in Seattle. “I think it was a really interesting group of people,” Lee reflected. “I think everybody enjoyed it.”
