From Bimah to Broadway Sunday Evening February 23, 2014 Tickets on sale NOW Volume XXXIII Number 5 February 2014 Adar I 5774

From Rabbi Miller Hair Today, Gone March 31st One Friday night in November, I shared the emotional story of Sam Sommer, also known as Superman Sam. The son of my friends and colleagues, Rabbi Michael Sommer and Rabbi Phyllis Sommer, Sammy’s story went viral across the country as his mom blogged his battle with cancer – Diagnosed with refractory acute myeloid leukemia, Sammy called it ninja cancer. Each time they thought the cancer was beaten, it returned with a vengeance. The week I spoke, the family learned that there were no more medical options left. In mid-December, Sam Sommer died in peace with his parents by his side. Shortly after learning that Sammy had weeks to live, he made a list of the things that he wanted to do. Michael and Phyllis took the family on a whirlwind effort to create memories with Sammy, for themselves and for his three siblings. They traveled to Israel and Disney World, doing as much as his tired and broken body would allow them to. While the family frantically made the most of Sammy’s remaining days, friends felt moved by Sammy to honor his legacy. As one of the


thousands who read Phyllis’ blog, tears ran down my cheeks each time I read an update. Cancer is a cruel disease, and it was painful to watch the effect it had on Sammy and his family. Feeling powerless, and needing to do more than cry, a group of colleagues started Shave for the Brave. Inspired by Sammy, rabbis would shave their heads to raise funds that would go toward pediatric cancer research. I quickly joined my friends, and we had an initial goal of finding 36 rabbis and raising $180,000. Using the website to organize our efforts, we planned to all shave our heads together at our annual convention in Chicago (Sammy’s hometown) on March 31st. To everyone’s surprise and delight by the start of 2014, we had exceeded even our wildest expectations – with more than 70 rabbis (men and women) participating and over $200,000 raised. I am still striving to reach my goal and look forward to shaving my head in solidarity with all those individuals, children and adults alike, who lose their hair in an effort to save their lives. In just eight short years, Sammy taught through his life about courage, struggle, strength, wisdom, peace and acceptance. May we learn to make the most of every day, knowing that we are all here today and gone tomorrow.


From Cantor Azu We’re getting close, can you feel the excitement? From Bimah to Broadway is less than a month away, and my excitement keeps building the closer we get! At this point, most of the details have been set in place, and the program is almost finalized. The music you’ll be hearing that night will move and thrill you. Ticket sales have been outstanding, and we hope to sell out. If you plan to attend but haven’t bought your ticket yet, I would encourage you to do so ASAP. Not only will you be enjoying an evening of great music and talent, but you’ll also be helping Temple Shalom in raising funds to support Temple programs. This concert is not to be missed! I wouldn’t have been able to put this concert together without the incredible talent and dedication of my committee and Temple staff. I want to take this opportunity to thank several key people who have worked tirelessly to make this concert a success. I appreciate all the

THANK YOU! Concert Committee Members Chair - Nancy Wiadro Beth Adelman Lydia Bond Lori Cohen Karen Deutsch Jane Friedberg Lester Friedberg Jessie Goebel Carole Greene Franves Nossen Michele Pelletiere Estelle Price Don Shapiro Carol Swartz Arlene Yedid


input, skill and talent each individual has brought to the committee. First and foremost, thank you to my concert chair, Nancy Wiadro. Her organization, enthusiasm and foresight has helped to make the evening possible, and I’m eternally grateful to her for taking the lead. Don Shapiro was another person who believed in the success of this concert and was responsible for finding many of our sponsors. Thank you, Don, for all that you’ve done! Though they are often behind the scenes, Jo Icaza, Temple Shalom’s communication specialist designed the beautiful invitations and fliers you received in the mail. We’re so lucky to have her talent! And to Susan Daugherty, I’m always grateful for your sound advice and encouragement. This evening will be a success not just because of the Cantors who’ll be joining me, but because of the people working so hard around me. I appreciate you all! I hope to see you at Temple Shalom on February 23 at 7pm for an incredible night! B’Shalom!


From the Executive Director by Susan Daugherty

– to give to others.

Look what we did. We joined together and in a single day, empowered by equal parts of joy and determination, we started to improve the world. From one end of the Temple to the other, rooms were filled with men, women, and children of all ages who came together with one goal in mind

Whether you were working on the Meals of Hope assembly line as the rice flew wildly through the air; or in the Social Hall, stuffing envelopes for Habitat for Humanity; or in the Library, sorting through stacks of school supplies and filling book bags, as well as arranging stacks of gently worn jeans, all for the homeless children of our county; or in the Chapel, digging through the thousands of shampoos and soaps and toothbrushes we collected, so these children could feel clean and proud; or back in the Social Hall, lovingly sorting the wide array of items that had been donated for the Shelter for Abused Women and Children; or enthusiastically kneading the dough to make dog biscuits; or down the hall in Room 17, decorating heart magnets for people in nursing facilities, you were part of an extraordinary day! Over 50,000 meals packed for Meals of Hope. Our deepest thanks to Sisterhood and Men’s Club for kicking off our contribution drive and to all of you who contributed so generously to this remarkable effort. Boxes and boxes of gifts for The Shelter for Abused Women & Children. We are so grateful to Andrea Shaw of Gulfshore Insurance for her beautiful quilted blankets. Dozens and dozens of book bags stuffed with school supplies, and piles of jeans of all sizes for distribution to homeless school children. Thousands of toiletry products for Collier County’s Homeless Students. Special thanks to NCJW, the Naples Press Club, and the Humanistic Jewish Havurah for their tremendous support and contributions!


Dog food, cat food, bedding, toys, and hundreds of home-made dog biscuits for our furry friends at the Humane Society and Domestic Animal Services. Loads of thank you cards for our community’s first responders and heart magnets for those in nursing facilities. All in one day. Happily, all of our efforts were captured in pictures! We are grateful to George Rubin, our volunteer videographer! As soon as the video is available, we will post a link to it from our website and via the weekly announcements. Special thanks as well to our good friend Joyce Jacobs, Assistant Director of the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Each year Joyce attends Mitzvah Day, moving from room to room and activity to activity as our unofficial photographer. Thank you both for your creative efforts. We couldn’t stop smiling. We all had a sense of purpose. We were all contributing to a greater good, and as a result, we stood taller. Albert Schweitzer said, “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” We were ecstatic. Thank you to the hundreds of you who participated in our Mitzvah Day activities, and to Men’s Club for providing breakfast, and Sisterhood for the delicious cakes and cookies! We are a congregation of warm hearts and loving hands. I know that many of you work to improve the world everyday. Your touch is felt throughout our community on an on-going basis, and we are all the better for it. One day a year we congregate in one place at one time, and we make magic happen. The positive feelings fill us and motivate us and empower us. Thank you for being a part of it.

President’s Message by Yale Freeman Guess what? When asked, we at Temple Shalom step up. • Dozens of volunteers stepped up throughout the year to make the Our Torah Project a success. • Over 50 members have volunteered to participate on the Congregational Relations Committee, and have stepped up to make the February 2nd Kick-Off of our One Family Initiative a reality. • As in previous years, volunteer after volunteer stepped up to take part in Mitzvah Day, helping to make sure that people in need throughout our community are being taken care of. Then, in the last edition of The Voice, I repeated a request I had made during the High Holy Days: please step up and help with financial analysis and planning. A long-term fundraising plan is needed to support those services requested by our congregants and community for the future. Many of you stepped up!

Approximately 20 volunteers got together a couple of weeks ago to discuss a new direction for our financial planning. Thank you! This effort will address the second tier of our Board of Trustees’ plan of action. From congregational relations, the first tier of our master plan, to financial responsibility – we’re heading in the right direction as we continue the transition that is bringing positive change toward a truly haimisha congregation and many secure tomorrows. Although my term as your President expires in a few months, I have agreed to chair those groups, which, in the future, will deal with all financial matters affecting our Temple. I encourage everyone to take part in our One Family Kick-Off, February 2nd at 11:00am. The author of Relational Judaism, Rabbi Ron Wolfson, is an outstanding, much sought-after speaker, and we got him! Please come and learn why we, as a Temple family, are following this path into our future. See you there!

Ruth Messinger


From the Religious School Director by Caren Plotkin What kind of learner are you? Some of us are visual learners, others are audio learners and still others learn best through hands-on activities. And then, there are those we refer to as outsidethe-box learners. My daughter is an outsidethe-box learner. It all became very apparent in Middle School. She was the child that would sing in class while completing her class work or have the loudest voice while working in a group. Melissa spent more time in Mr. Stevenson’s office (the Assistant Principal of Discipline) because she would end up in a fit of laughter as she entertained herself and those around her or she would shout out an answer or a comment at the most inappropriate time. It was Mr. Stevenson who recognized that Melissa was a different kind of learner, a child who learned and processed information quickly and became bored once she had finished an assignment. Soon we discovered Melissa’s creative side, and she became involved in classes and activities that challenged her and began to develop her interest and leadership skills.

B’nai Mitzvah Mazel Tov to Bryce Albert February 8, 2014

My name is Bryce, and my parents are Larry and Tracey Albert. I have a brother, Grayson. I attend Seacrest Country Day School; my favorite sports are swimming, basketball and football. I play the cello in the Philharmonic Youth Symphonia, and I love watching sports and spending time with friends.

Evan Collins February 15, 2014

My name is Evan. I like sports such as football, baseball and basketball. I also enjoy fishing. I am in NJHS and have gotten all A’s since I began school. When I grow up I want to be a lawyer. I also like spending time with family and friends.

Sofia Collins February 15, 2014

My name is Sofia. I am 13. I have a twin brother named Evan. I am in NJHS. I enjoy dance, my friends, the beach, camp and my family. When I grow up I would like to be in theatre or own a business.


Now, everyone knows that those Middle School years can be difficult ones. It’s a time when our 12 – 14 year olds are trying to fit in. They are all discovering who they are while wondering “am I popular, am I pretty or cute, am I skinny enough, athletic or cool enough?” I refer to this time in a teen’s life as “hormonal bliss” since it’s both a nightmare and a very exciting time of growth and discovery all at once. Fast forward 16 years later. Melissa is 29 now and living in Hawaii. She is pursuing her dream of living an ecologically sustainable life and sharing her knowledge of plants, vegetation and herbs with others. Recently, while visiting Naples, she came and spoke to our 11th and 12th graders about ecology and the environment and how we can be more eco-friendly here in Naples. I was so proud of her and realized that she has grown into a thoughtful, grounded and insightful young woman. As a parent of an outside-the-box learner, I am humbled by my daughter’s strength and tenacity and of her courage to be different. We are parents of children who all have different modalities of learning. It can be difficult at times, but the best thing we can do for them is to embrace their differences and celebrate their individuality.

Preschool on Parade by Seyla Cohen, Preschool Director Once again Temple Shalom Preschool is hosting its annual Safety Day/Open House on Sunday, February 16th from 11am to 2pm. This is a very special activity-packed, day-long program educating our young citizens about safety within our neighborhood. Various community helpers come to present awareness about their individual departments. The children enjoy seeing fire trucks up close and personal. They are able to climb on board and view fire fighter’s gear and equipment. EMTs show off their ambulances for the children to have an inside view of their vehicles, and the police department brings their mascot, McGruff the Crime Dog, teaching the children about combating crime in the area. Water safety, a major concern for parents in the area, is reinforced. Domestic Animal Services is another presenter, along with Smokey the Bear from the Department of Forestry. The rock climbing wall and the bounce house bring lots of fun and excitement, and everyone loves riding the ponies around our campus. Safety Day is an event open to the general public and is a welcomed and well-received program for the community each year.

Sisterhood News by Sandy Stone, Sisterhood President Sisterhood recently had a wonderful experience. Many of our members and their children had a terrific morning when we visited the “Shy Wolf Sanctuary” and learned about the wolves.

Death and Dying... Revisited The 2014 Sunday School for Adults with Rabbi Emeritus James Perman originally scheduled for February will be held at the Temple on two successive Sundays, March 2nd and 9th. Of all the questions about Judaism and Jewish belief, these are among the most frequently asked: “What happens after I die?” “Do Jews believe in Heaven and Hell?” “What do Jews believe about life after death?” “Is there such a thing as ‘Jewish last rites?’” “How should I prepare for the inevitable?” Jews have been asking these same timeless questions for a very long time. We have an ancient faith tradition that goes back thousands of years. By now we should have come up with some important ideas, even a few answers. We do indeed have some answers — really good ones. They are what Rabbi Perman will discuss in March. As with all talks in this series, they are free of charge and open to all. They take place in the Temple Sanctuary from 10:30 – 11:30. The talks will examine the traditional wisdom Jews have carried through the ages. They will critically examine some of today’s best thinking. New issues include the prolongation of life and death, assisted suicide, family issues, alternatives to burial, and new and futuristic funeral practices. Class starts at 10:30. Do bring your friends and continue the discussions on your own. All are welcome. This topic is of universal importance — as all of us know full well, no one is exempt.
