MISSION STATEMENT Temple Shalom of Naples is an inclusive Reform Jewish congregation where all individuals are equal partners in making our world whole and holy. We are One Family, believing in the sacredness of relationships, fostering connections – one to another, Temple, Israel, Torah and God. We are living Jewish values and nurturing future generations.


Adam Miller Pesach This month we will gather around seder tables in celebration of Passover. If one looks in Torah, there is no mention of a seder – an ordered meal. The rabbis added the ritual as the celebration of Passover transitioned from the great Temple in Jerusalem, into the homes and community gathering places. They based this evolution on a text from Exodus which teaches that one is to teach the story of Passover to one’s children. With that in mind, the Maggid, the telling of the story, is truly the central element of the seder. While the story remains the same, we have been able to find meaning from the Exodus in every generation. Each time we recall the Exodus, it resonates with current experiences. The early Rabbis used the story of Egypt to relate to their suffering at the hands of Rome. In more recent memory, we used the Exodus to connect with the civil rights movement, the Jewish community in Russia, women’s suffrage, genocide in Darfur, and the experience of the tomato workers in Immokalee. The story of Passover feels even more meaningful today, as we witness a significant increase in anti-Semitic incidents in our nation and around the world. With the backdrop of bomb threats and vandalism, even here in Naples, we appreciate even more the strength and courage exhibited by

the Israelites during their sojourn in Egypt. In recognition of the challenges facing many communities, our Tikkun Olam Council is developing a Passover ritual for this year’s seder. In the coming weeks you will receive an insert you can use via email. We hope that you will incorporate this into your seder, creating a space for discussion of anti-Semitism, and engaging in at least one of the suggested actions in response to recent events. Passover takes us on a journey from struggle to hope. Each year we end with the message of gratitude for our freedom, as well as the dream that next year we will meet in the holy land of Israel. This year, may we add an additional prayer to the end of our seder. L’shanah Ha’ba’ah b’shalom – May the year ahead be one of peace, one of healing the wounds that divide, and one of making our world more whole and holy. From our seder tables to the world in which we live, may it be God’s will. Wishing you a joyful celebration of freedom and matzah, Rabbi Adam F. Miller

Debbie Zvibleman

Donna Azu For more than twenty centuries, Jews have recalled the great Exodus of their ancestors from the enslavement of Egypt by retelling its story on the holiday of Passover. Passover asks us to do one simple thing: tell the story. We tell the story of how a people, enslaved and oppressed, was brought out from bondage and made into a great nation by God. Jews in every land, in every age since the Haggadah was created have told their children the tale of the ancient journey into freedom, and through the telling have kept its memory alive. Therefore, each generation has grown up feeling that the story is part of their own history, and in time they tell it to their children. Indeed, many American Jews who are non-observant participate in the Passover holiday by attending or conducting some kind of seder. In addition to the Second Night Seder that will be hosted at Temple Shalom on Tuesday, April 11th, we also like to engage our youngest members with a slightly sweeter and more caloric program. Temple Shalom’s Children’s Chocolate Seder for grades K-3 will take place on Sunday, April 2nd at 10:30AM. The Chocolate Seder will be a mock version of a Passover meal celebrating the ancient Jews’ exodus from Egypt, with all the traditional foods -- matzah, bitter herbs, and charoset -- replaced by various kinds of chocolate. We’ll sing songs, eat pizza, drink chocolate milk, eat chocolate covered matzah, and savor other delectable treats at our very own non-traditional Passover Seder. The seder is open to all children! If you have a child that would like to attend, please RSVP to me at Wishing you and your family a joyous Passover! Chag S’meach, Cantor Donna Azu

By now you should have received the second letter further explaining L’Shalom, the Q&A and a pledge card for next year’s financial commitment. We are asking that we receive the pledge cards back in April so that we may determine if we have a shortfall of our projected budget. In the past, you received a bill at the beginning of July. You will still receive that, but it will be based on the pledge you turn in. This is why it is so important to have your pledge card back in a timely manner so that we know what your intentions are. If we do not get a card back from you we will assume that you will be paying the sustaining amount. While we know this is a big change, we feel that this is the right time to initiate this new system. Our goal is to remove barriers to membership and participation which is in line with One Family, while ensuring our fiduciary responsibility to raise enough funds to sustain the Temple through the generosity of our congregants.

The Annual Meeting of the Congregation of Temple Shalom will take place on April 30, 2017 at 10:00 AM in the social hall of Temple Shalom Thank you to the Men’s Club! The Men’s Club has generously purchased a brand new grill for the Temple’s use. We can’t wait for the next BBQ!

Dedicating the Tribute Garden Together We want to make the Temple Shalom Tribute Garden a space everyone can share. In the final design, the Building & Grounds Committee included three separate opportunities for members to help support the garden through a formal dedication: garden benches— four are initially proposed, existing and newly planted trees, and an area of the patio for engraved pavers.

Join us for the dedication of the Tribute Garden April 2, 2017 at 11:30AM Preparing the Ground The summer of 2015 witnessed the completion of the Temple Shalom Tribute Garden Phase I. With the help of generous donations, we removed the three oaks trees—which were becoming a nuisance and an eyesore—and beautified the space with a new patio garden. As you may remember, we started the project with the final goal of transforming the area into a Tribute Garden for the whole community to enjoy. The Temple Shalom board of trustees is pleased to announce the plans for the final phase.

$5,000 donation to dedicate a bench in the Temple Shalom Tribute Garden

$2,500 donation to dedicate an existing or newly planted tree in the Temple Shalom Tribute Garden

$750 donation for one 12”X12” personalized paver

$500 donation for an 8”x8” personalized engraved paver - 6 lines, up to 20 characters per line

$250 donation for an 4”x8” personalized engraved paver - 3 lines, up to 20 characters per line

Each phase of our Tribute Garden would be impossible without your generous support. We hope you will take this opportunity to help make Temple Shalom beautiful and inviting for all of our members.

Designing a Space for Community Our new Building & Grounds Committee began planning the Tribute Garden’s final phase earlier this year. We decided to create a space where one can pay tribute to the past through reflection and meditation, as well as celebrate the future with a space that can accommodate multiple uses. As you can see from the new plans, Phase II is designed with the features needed to create a practical and peaceful place for our community. We will expand the paver patio to provide space for larger events, and use new landscaping features to shield the garden from the parking lot. The plan also leaves the area north of the garden open for future plantings, and for landscape lighting. 6

L’Dor v’Dor


Michele Byrd

L’dor v’dor – from generation to generation. In Judaism we embrace our generations. From Torah portions reciting lineages, recalling the names of our ancestors (Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov; Sarah, Rivkah, Leah, Rachel) in prayers, and commandments to teach our children, generations are significant.

Soprano and member of the Philharmonic Center Chorale and Chamber Chorus

It’s a phrase you hear often, but what does it mean in action? For Temple Shalom, it means our youth are intentionally interacting with their elders, bringing generations together for learning. This happens in multiple ways, but this year we are proud to share with you a new gathering of generations. Our community-wide Yom HaShoah commemoration, held this year at Temple Shalom, is Sunday, April 23rd at 10 AM. The commemoration includes a new element – the partnership of our young students with a local Holocaust survivor. The intentional pairing of a survivor with students from a younger generation honors both our values of remembering and of l’dor v’dor – from generation to generation. Over the course of several dates in February, the 6 grade Religious School students from Temple Shalom and 6th-12th graders from the community met in small groups with five Holocaust survivors. The students conducted interviews and learned the story of our survivors. On March 5th, the students had the honor of visiting the Holocaust Museum with the survivors they’ve been learning from. th

Bringing these generations together creates a new link in the legacy of our survivors and giving our students the opportunity to create a new and diverse perspective of the events that have forever shaped our world. They have gotten to experience learning l’dor v’dor – from generation to generation – in a powerful way. We would like to recognize and give special thanks to the survivors – Eva Sands, Marcel Fachler, Rob Nossen, Heinz Wartski, Henny Porter, and Lorie Mayer. Thank you also to the students and their families; the teachers – Rabbi Donna Levy and Chad Atkins; and our Yom HaShoah committee – Renee Bialek, Ida Margolis, Amy Snyder, and Dr. Anna Salomon. We hope you will join us for our community Yom HaShoah commemoration at Temple Shalom on Sunday, April 23rd as our students share what it means to learn l’dor v’dor. 8

Seyla Cohen We are pleased to announce that the annual Temple Shalom Preschool Art Show will be held Thursday, May 4, 2017, at 6PM. As the students put finishing touches on their masterpieces, the Art Show committee is working hard and promises that this will be the most incredible Art Show thus far, filled with wine, refreshments, silent auctions, and entertainment. Each year artwork crafted by children at the preschool adorn the walls of the social hall. Parents gather to view the artwork created by their children under the guidance of Art Director, Linda Ginsberg. Such an exhibition gives the children a sense of pride and confidence, so important to the self-esteem of our preschool students. The Annual Art Show is an opportunity for parents, relatives, congregants and friends to gather and mingle while having the opportunity to purchase students’ creations, participate in the silent auction, and bid on many other items and services auctioned and raffled off. As in the past, the evening will prove a welcoming, warm and attentive fundraiser from which students, families, and the preschool benefit. In addition to providing funds for our enrichment program, the money raised during this event, along with Jewish Federation grants, provide funds to support scholarships for Temple Shalom Preschool families in need of aid with tuition. As the summer quickly approaches and parents are looking for quality programs and adventures for their little ones, Temple Shalom Preschool has begun its planning for Camp Shalom and Camp Einstein. We offer a wonderful way to occupy and enrich their lives during these months. Camp Shalom is for children in the 2-4 year age range and Camp Einstein is for boys and girls ages 5-8. Both camps offer 7 weekly sessions beginning June 5th.

The Tikkun Olam Council As we gather around the seder table this year we have much to think about. In addition to retelling the story of the Exodus from Egypt, it is also our story as Jews. As Rabbi Rick Jacobs responded when he was asked to describe the holiday to a journalist for the National Catholic Reporter, “It is the master story of the Jewish people going from degradation to redemption, and it mirrors our own personal journeys. When we ask people, ‘What is the most important part of your Jewish identity?’ the dominant answer is, ‘Standing up for equality, pursuing justice and standing up for the rights of the marginalized.’ These are core Jewish commitments. And if you ever had a ritual that teaches those commitments, it is Passover.”

Perhaps our Passover seders can be a catalyst for further discussion of this important issue. On every seder plate there is a roasted egg to symbolize the sacrificial offerings which were performed in the days of the Second Temple. This year, consider adding a hard boiled egg. Just as the egg becomes harder the more it is boiled, Jews become stronger and more resolved as antisemitism increases. May this Passover be a time for reflection and action.

In that spirit, we now must stand up to the rise in antisemitism around the world as well as in our communities right here in America. The Tikkun Olam Council is examining different ways that members of Temple Shalom can raise their voices to demand action by our leaders at the national, state and local level.

Shalom Chaverim An opportunity to be part of

Audacious Hospitality at Temple Shalom Torah teaches us the importance of “welcoming the stranger.” This concept, repeated many times in our ancient texts, is the basis of Audacious Hospitality, an initiative of the Union for Reform Judaism. Audacious Hospitality is a spiritual practice focused on inclusivity, diversity, openness, and welcoming. These values, also values of our Temple Shalom One Family, have led to the formation of Shalom Chaverim (Temple Shalom Friends), a cadre of greeters welcoming members and guests to Temple Shalom for erev Shabbat services. Shalom Chaverim is one more way for Temple Shalom members to put our One Family values into practice. You will encounter members of Shalom Chaverim outside by the curb, in the lobby, in the sanctuary, and at the oneg Shabbat. These warm and smiling greeters are an addition to our usual greeters at the podium in the lobby. Shalom Chaverim members will be available to assist members and guests as they arrive at Temple, to help with name badges, to locate prayer books, to assist those with special needs, and to ensure that guests are welcomed and comfortable.

Paula Brody and Merrill Hassenfeld worked tirelessly and gave generously for decades to expand and enrich Jewish life in Boston, the community where they lived throughout their professional careers. They now call Naples home—and honor Temple Shalom with their gifts of time, energy, love and financial support. Their dedication and contributions to Jewish life are remarkable. Paula and Merrill were both involved in the creation and early success of Mayyim Hayyim, a 21st century mikveh rooted in ancient tradition and reinvented to serve the Jewish community of today. Both Paula and Merrill served on the Board and Paula was, in fact, one of the original “Mikveh Mamas,” who, along with visionary and founding president Anita Diamant, transformed this unprecedented institution from a dream into a reality.

Shalom Chaverim members sign up online for the dates and assignments of their choice. They can participate as often as is comfortable for them. This volunteer opportunity works equally well •

“FROM BIMAH TO BROADWAY, ENCORE!” Wow! Temple Shalom’s “From Bimah to Broadway, Encore!” was sold out!! Concert coordinators, Nancy and Jack Wiadro, their committee and Temple staff, brought the exceptional talents of Cantor Donna Azu, Music Director, Peter Lewis and 4 guest cantors to a very appreciative crowd. The varied program kept our capacity crowd in awe of the musical talent and styling of familiar classics. Please look at the full committee listing and thank them when you see them. Special thanks to our dedicated team: Fran Nossen, Keeper of the Books Extraordinaire, Carol Clarke and Susan Ritter, Usher Co-chairs, Patrons’ Dinner Chair, Karen Deutsch and Jane Friedberg, Reception Arrangements Chair. Bill Maltby and Arlene Yedid worked with Jeanette Fischer on our publicity. Thanks to Estelle and Stuart Price who provided wines for the Patrons’ Dinner and Frances Kline and Mark Malone for underwriting the Dessert Reception Prosecco. Our special thanks to committee members who made phone calls and secured additional underwriting. We also appreciated the willing volunteers who schlepped to and from the airport with our brilliant guest cantors.

Volunteer ushers did their best to assure seating for all. Many congregants, who couldn’t attend, sent donations. Thank you, too! Our generous patrons assured the financial success of the concert. Arlene and Don Shapiro and Phyllis and Michael Seaman added a layer of excitement with a drawing for the use of their NYC apartments. Winners of the drawing, for up to 7 nights in a NY apartment, were Paula Brody and Merrill Hassenfeld. Stephanie and Neil Heuer won the 3 night stay in a NY apartment. Alieen and Michael Pierce will have a reserved parking space in front and a lively “bidding war” for the second space went to Anne and Mark Rubin. Event sponsors included First Florida Integrity Bank, The Men’s Club of Temple Shalom, Adam Goldstein at 859 Print, and the awesome culinary talents of Chef Jay Wolfson of Prestige Catering. Please thank and patronize them. None of this would have been possible without Temple Shalom’s dedicated office staff, Jeanette Fischer, Randi Butterworth, Maxine Gould, Alicia Browner and our facilities manager Victor Lucas.

Many thanks to our ushers Ed Cohen Carol Clarke Cissy Dezen Michael Feldman Carol Hirsch Sam Oshry Michele Pelletiere Susan & Nathaniel Ritter Sandy & Len Schuman Shellie Spector Linda & Jerry Wainick 18
