Adam Miller Every time we make the shift into January, I know that for many of us, our checks still read 2017 well into this new year. While the calendars have changed, at least a piece of our minds remains a little behind. Acknowledging the passage of time, consciously or unconsciously can be challenging.

Sunday, March 4th

Following the Purim Shpiel Join in the fun as we recreate Shushan with 70,000 Lego blocks! This activity is open to EVERYONE from young to not so young

In his book Deep Work, Cal Newport explores the challenge of making transitions, asking whether the human mind is best suited for single tasking, rather than multi-tasking. Recent scientific studies show that it is not possible for our brains to rapidly transition from one task to another. Part of the brain stays focused on a prior task for as long as twenty minutes after we have moved onto a new subject. As a result, even when we believe we are multi-tasking, it is often done without our full attention or brain capacity as a piece of our minds remains on the last task we were engaged with. In reality, we need time to adjust, pause, let go of what we have been doing, and prepare to meet the next challenge. Based on this, Newport concludes that we perform best when we dedicate ourselves to a particular task, removing any possible distraction so that we can perform what he calls “deep work.” In a typical work setting, that means closing email programs, turning off cell phones, and focusing on one task exclusively for at least 90 minutes. The same philosophy applies not only in the formal work environment, but in all facets of life. We know too well that having open these devices only causes us to get distracted, as just seeing the subject line from an email or text starts us wondering about the rest of the message and worrying that we need to reply quickly. That mindset spirals quickly, derailing our focus and diminishing our ability to reach our potential. Imagine what we could accomplish if we allowed ourselves that level of dedication and focus on a single task without interruption. Whether you have been writing 2018 on your checks for weeks, or are just coming around, make this year one in which you choose to dedicate your time and efforts. Embrace the idea of “deep work” and choose an area in which to make an impact. Consider attending a Shabbat service and embrace ninety minutes of spiritual worship with a whole heart. Participate in Mitzvah Day, leaving your phone in your pocket while you perform acts of repair for our world. Or attend one of our many adult education classes, including the renowned Sunday School for Adults with Rabbi Perman this month. Find your passion and “go deep” during this year of Chai, 2018. L’shalom, Rabbi Adam F. Miller

Especially fun for children in grades 3, 4 & 5 Children 5 & under must be accompanied by a parent The Purim shpiel starts at 9:30am LEGO program will follow

Debbie Zvibleman Our annual Mitzvah Day is February 11th and kicks off at 9 am with a breakfast provided by our Mens Club and then a rally at 9:30. We have so many projects to work on for all ages; Meals of Hope, our annual blood drive, Beading for Betterment and many other projects to benefit our community. We are also collecting toiletries, gently used clothing, backpacks and school supplies. If you are a blood donor, please call Jane Perman at 239-592-7555 to make an appointment so she can schedule you for the morning. Especially during season, there is a shortage of blood and we need your help. Beading for Betterment is new this year. As part of our “We Are One” project for this year, we are making necklaces for the children of the Guadalupe Center in Immokalee to give to their mothers and grandmothers for Mother’s Day. This is a great project for children 10 and up. I would like to thank Paula Brody for holding classes in her Inspirations Art Studio as well as donating beads, funds and her time to Temple Shalom for this project. I personally made necklaces at one of our beading sessions and had so much fun doing it. So many beautiful necklaces were made and all will be donated. In addition to Mitzvah Day, we have several other events that you will not want to miss: On February 12th, David Rutstein will be presenting the 2nd of 3 seminars on Ethical Wills. This is a way to communicate your beliefs and what you have learned during your life that you want to pass on to your loved ones.

Seyla Cohen The Jewish Federation of Greater Naples has once again pledged their support to Temple Shalom Preschool. Through a very generous contribution, TSP will be able to give financial aid to families that want to be part of our Temple Shalom Preschool family, but may need some assistance. In addition to earmarking funds for the regular school year TSP Experience, the Federation has expanded their support to our incredible summer programs, Camp Shalom and Camp Einstein. And just to round out our already spectacular program, they have granted funds for some very special cultural programs. As the director of Temple Shalom Preschool, I would like to express a personal “Todah Rabah� to the Federation for this much appreciated grant. One of the goals of Temple Shalom Preschool is to teach the children, from an early age, the importance of Mitzvot, giving back to society. We are all getting ready for Mitzvah Day on February 11th. This is an annual event in which temple and preschool families help give back to the Naples community. As in the past, we will be helping homeless children of Collier County by collecting toiletries and providing them with much needed necessities. Another favorite activity is baking doggie biscuits for the Humane Society. The children love to make the biscuit dough, shape it and decorate it for the adorable animals. Such deeds give meaning to values so important to instill in children at a tender age. Mitzvah Day brings joy, satisfaction, and a sense of accomplishment to both parents and children. What a nice way to begin the New Year.

Poet’s Eyes When I was teaching in a day school, no matter the age of students (I taught pre-K up through 5th grade), I did a unit on poetry. I’m not that huge of a fan of poetry – I appreciate it but I think there are many forms of literature that are wonderful. What I am, however, a huge fan of is the concept of poet’s eyes. As part of our unit we explored many different types of poetry. (In fact, my first goal was to help students understand poetry does not have to rhyme!) We studied the purpose of poetry, the opportunities that the style of writing offer, read hundreds of poems and wrote our own. Writing poetry, especially once you take out the rhyming, is not always easy. Many struggle with it, with trying to find a topic and to express themselves in this different form of writing. One concept I introduced students to was the idea of poet’s eyes. The goal of poetry, in part, is to look at the world around you through a different lens. To find the beauty, to find the struggle, to find a way to express your feelings and experiences and ideas in a new format. Using poet’s eyes requires you to take a new look. To notice. To wonder. To question. To appreciate. To argue. And so much more. Students were given a tiny notebook to carry around, with the charge to use their poet’s eyes and to record notes. Then we’d sit and share our poet’s eyes observations. Find an inspiration and write a poem. Because I am a Jewish educator I always linked these secular concepts to Judaism. For me, there isn’t a difference. Being Jewish for me isn’t something that happens only at temple, or only at a certain time. So what is Jewish about poet’s eyes? Everything. In Judaism we constantly seek to appreciate our blessings. There are blessings for everything. (Really, there is a blessing for pretty much anything you can think of.) Our prayers are about gratitude first, thanking God. Appreciation. We also value questioning. Torah is meant to be questioned, examined, explored, teased apart. We have sacred texts full of sages arguing over interpretations and meaning, others of filling in the blanks where Torah leaves us wondering something. We teach our students to question, to wonder, to struggle. That’s how you make it your own. Take a look around you, using your poet’s eyes. See what you notice!

Temple Shalom Religious School again thanks the Jewish Federation of Greater Naples for their vital assistance in providing scholarship funds for our families. Todah rabah! 8

Tik kun Olam C ouncil Together…We Can Repair the World Let’s Make Every Day a Mitzvah Day Mitzvah Day at Temple Shalom is always special. We pack 50,000 meals for people in need in our community. We prepare dozens of backpacks and collect cosmetics for homeless students and prepare purple bags full of love for children battling cancer. Hundreds of people join us as we perform Tikkun Olam, literally repairing the world. The Tikkun Olam Council (TOC) will have a table this year to encourage all of us to find ways to make every day a “Mitzvah Day.” There are many ways to volunteer. In particular, The Guadalupe Center in Immokalee provides early childhood education for students from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. There is a summer enrichment program for students from kindergarten through the 2nd grade, as well as a tutoring program for college bound students in the 9th to 12th grades. There are volunteer opportunities ranging from assisting in the classroom to helping to guide students with advice, support, and a listening ear. Clerical help is also needed. Finally, Guadalupe has a resale and consignment shop on Route 41 in Naples. Help is needed in a variety of areas ranging from helping as a cashier, customer service, pricing of art, housewares, clothing and linens, sorting items and staging displays. Volunteers are also needed for moving and picking up furniture from donors. If you are attending Mitzvah Day please make sure to stop at our table and hear about the Guadalupe Center. There will be a representative there to give you more detailed information.

Mitzvah Day isn’t just about giving, it’s about doing too! Join us on Mitzvah Day when our Temple Shalom family comes together for this special day to support the spirit of Tikkun Olam - repairing the world. There are many activities to choose from. One of the favorites is Meals of Hope, an organization that we partner with to help provide nutricious meals for those who are in need right here in Collier County. Meals of Hope provides the food and materials needed to package 50,000 meals. Can you believe that we package 50,000 meals in 3 hours? Well, we have successfully done just that year after year. We can do it again but, we need everyone’s help. How can you help? There are two ways. Beleive it or not, each meal only costs about 20 cents. To reach our goal of 50,000 meals, we need to raise $10,000. Your donation of $18 means 90 meals. $36 will help make 180 meals and for $100, 500 meals can be made. Please help us to reach this goal. You can mail your checks, made out to Temple Shalom, directly to the Temple with a note indicating Meals of Hope. How else can you help? You can come on Mitzvah Day and help package the meals. It’s tons of fun and super easy! Get a table of your friends together and start the assembly line. Or join in at a table where you will make new friends. We’ll show you how to do it. You do not have to make a donation to join in on the packing. Some other activities include.... Blood drive The Blood Mobile will be parked right outside Temple from 8am to 1pm.

Sunday, February 4th 10:30am

Sex & Power

Sunday, February 25th 10:30am

Jerusalem is amazing! What should we know about it?

Judaism has had a lot to say about sexual morality

Old City, New City, East Jerusalem, West Jerusalem… what’s it all about? Jerusalem is in the news nearly every day. What makes it so unique? Why did the President’s declaration raise such a fuss? What are our legitimate Jewish interests? What’s the right and fair thing to do? What is even possible in today’s crazy world? Here’s what we need to know. We will look into its fascinating history, its religious meaning for us, and also for Christians and Moslems. Finally, we will discuss what’s possible — the politics of Jerusalem in today’s troubled world. All in about an hour!

This topic took on a particular urgency with the lurid revelations of Hollywood and Washington. Extraordinary women summoned the courage to tell their stories and reveal their long held secrets. This development elicited similar stories from women in all walks of life. Rabbi Perman will present some core Jewish teachings as well as suggested remedies.

Free! All are welcome to attend 15

With so many things to do, we suggest getting an early start on your want-to-do list. There’s a lot to do at The Carlisle Naples Senior Living Community — clubs, events, socializing, and more. So, go ahead and make your want-to-do list. But please don’t include a bunch of chores. We’ll take care of most of those for you. We invite you to see all that The Carlisle has to offer (including assisted living services if needed) at a complimentary lunch and tour. Please call now to schedule.

We Are One: A Musical Celebration to Entertain and Inspire By Carole J Greene Over the past few months you’ve learned many details about our 2018 Temple fundraising event, the March 11 production of—“We Are One: A Musical Celebration.” Like the cherry on an ice cream sundae, we’ve saved the best for last.

Wheeler. Outstanding local performers and musicians will augment the New York troupe. When asked what sparked the creation of this production, Jamibeth noted that the idea was born out of the defacing of Temple Shalom’s sign in the autumn of 2016 and the outpouring of support—solidarity—from the Collier County community. “To combine theatrical entertainment with the solidarity idea seemed to be a perfect way to bring people together after this episode, especially as a fundraiser.”

The “musical celebration” part of the program is a compilation of familiar and not so familiar music from the Great American Songbook, Broadway and pop favorites, directed by Jamibeth Margolis. Some of the 14 pieces will make you want to sing along, while others will present creative arrangements of old standards. Still others might be totally new to some of you; what the director calls “interesting eclectic music people may not know but will certainly enjoy.” Together, they’ll create a story, supplemented by readings from historical documents as well as visual graphics done as projections, augmented by professional lighting and sound designers. All this is being developed by daughter of Temple Shalom members Ida and Jeff Margolis, Jamibeth Margolis, a professional casting director in New York City. Over the years, she has auditioned— and cast—hundreds of actors performing in Broadway and off-Broadway productions. She has also directed many shows in New York and regional theaters. For our special evening, she will bring half a dozen New York performers, including her pianist and musical director Andrew

Many Temple Shalom members and friends will recall that in March 2014 Jamibeth brought another musical theater production to Naples. Titled “Warsaw: A Story in Song,” it inspired the audience through a thoughtprovoking story revolving around the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

Preparing for the show! Creative team, Jamibeth Margolis and Andrew Wheeler with actor Joseph Peterson

February events in the “We Are One” theme Two February events continue the emphasis on solidarity. First, on Sunday, February 11th, the Temple Shalom family will join together at 9:00am for our annual Mitzvah Day. At 7:00pm on Wednesday, February 21st, Rabbi David Jaffe will talk with us about his book, Changing the World for the Inside Out. Both activities will provide us with opportunities to come together in a spirit of oneness, heralding the culmination of our solidarity project on March 11th.


In addition to the musical component, the “We Are One: A Musical Celebration” production includes excerpts from historical documents that remind us of our responsibilities to work together in solidarity. Community leaders— “we won’t name them here as we want to keep some surprises”—will read these, mixed in with the songs. Local community leader Phil Beuth will be honored with the Temple Shalom Nachson Award for Social Justice. Students from the Guadalupe Center Tutor Corps will attend as special guests. Jamibeth summed up: “It will be an important and entertaining evening of music, readings and visuals that will stir and inspire the audience.”

Suzanne Low, J.D., CFP®, Endowment Chair

Life insurance can be an excellent tool for charitable giving, and giving to an endowment in particular. Life insurance allows you to make a substantial gift to Temple Shalom endowments at relatively little cost to you, when changes in estate taxes or your family situation make the policy you own - or are the beneficiary of - no longer needed. In addition, you may also benefit from tax rules that apply to gifts of life insurance.

Endowment Corner

With a completed endowment gift of $10,000 or more you will become a member of our Eternal Light Society.

Here is a real life example. Ed and Sara are a couple in their mid-fifties. Sara’s parents are retired and have a $1 million life insurance policy that was purchased when the estate tax exemption was $675,000. The insurance policy would pay $1 million on their death to Sara and was designed to pay the expected estate taxes. Because of the current estate tax exemption, portability (ability to add the husband’s and wife’s exemptions together) and cost of living indexing, there would currently be no estate tax on the first $22.4 million of their combined estate (to revert to $11.2 million indexed in 2025). Because Sara’s parents’ estate is approximately $5 million, there would no longer be any estate tax due. Therefore, the insurance policy is no longer needed for the original purpose of paying the estate tax. However, after paying premiums on the insurance for almost 20 years, the policy has a cash value of $364,000. With the considerable cash value of the policy, Sara’s parents no longer need to make out-of-pocket premium payments, because the cash value is expected to generate more than enough income on the policy to pay the premiums.


You will become a member of our Legacy Society with your signed letter of intent to make a gift in the future.

After consulting with their tax advisor, Sara’s parents decide to borrow $75,000 from the cash value of the policy and gift it to their Temple endowment. The insurance policy still names Sara as beneficiary of the $1 million policy, the Temple receives $75,000 immediately and Sara’s parents receive a tax deduction for approximately $75,000 to use to reduce their taxable income over the next five years. Do you have a policy or are you the beneficiary of a policy that is no longer needed? We would be happy to help you with making an insurance policy gift to Temple Shalom Endowments.
