A Jubilee Celebration for Rabbi Perman The Friday Shabbat service and oneg at Temple Shalom on March 17th will be a celebration of James Perman’s 50 years as a rabbi. Fifty years as a rabbi, that is a long time! It begs a question: How do you pay tribute to someone who has played such a vital role in the lives of so many people at Temple Shalom and the Jewish community in Southwest Florida? Trying to add up all the life cycle events so important to those who are touched might be a start; the education of our children so essential to our future; the countless number of Shabbat services and sermons; the many hours sitting with the sick and those in need; the raising of support for so many important Jewish causes; providing a moral compass for the Greater Naples community; and many more. Where does one start? Where does one end? Rabbi Perman assumed the pulpit at Temple Shalom in 1993 after leading congregations in the Air Force and Mount Vernon, New York. With a new spiritual leader in our midst, there was a natural feeling of uncertainty in the congregation. But, it did not take long for us to appreciate our good fortune. The Perman era has been wonderful for Temple Shalom. The congregation thrived, growing from 325 to 750 families when he “retired” in 2006 – for the first time! He returned to the pulpit two years later to guide us through a challenging period, “retiring again” in 2010 upon the arrival of Rabbi Adam Miller. It is said that the main role of a rabbi is to teach. Over the years Rabbi Perman has proven to be a master educator through his sermons, seminars, Sunday School for Adults, and as an Adjunct Professor at FGCU. He has a remarkable gift for bringing together diverse concepts to explain complex issues and present them in a way that is easily understood, interesting and thought provoking. One of his proudest accomplishments during his tenure was the mentoring of two assistants, Rabbi Daniel Sherman and Rabbi Baht Weiss. And, it was with joy that he welcomed Rabbi Adam Miller and transitioned with grace into his role as Emeritus Rabbi. Please join us on March 17th at 7:30PM to honor Rabbi Perman.

Those words resonated with the students, as they recognized the importance of standing up for justice, even if the injustice that is occurring does not impact you directly.

Adam Miller Power of Speech and Words Time and again our history emphasizes the power of words. From Abraham pleading with God on behalf of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah to Moses speaking to Pharaoh to Esther pleading with King Ahasuerus in the story of Purim. Last month I travelled to Washington, D.C. with 7 of our teens to participate in the L’taken Seminar at the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. Bryce Albert, Josh Braverman, Brooke Flegel, Brooke Jaffe, Adam Mitrani, Harrison Ornstein and Samantha Roth participated this year. Joining with 250 teens from across the country, our weekend included a visit to the United States Holocaust Museum, Havdalah at the Jefferson Memorial, as well as lobbying on Capitol Hill. Throughout the trip, the recurring theme centered around the power of our words and speech. At the Holocaust Museum, the students shared that their most memorable moment occurred near the end of the exhibit, when they saw the familiar words of Pastor Niemoller: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist…

Later that night, as we sat on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial, we experienced the importance of having freedom of speech and religion. Jefferson and the founding fathers of our country made it possible for us to freely express our religious identity. As a result, we were able to mark the end of Shabbat with the ritual of Havdalah, on the steps of a national monument. The students recognized that they were able to do something that would not have been possible for the many generations of Jews who lived in places where Jews were not treated as full and equal citizens. On our last day we visited Congress to lobby with our representatives in the Senate and House. Temple Shalom students chose to talk about the topics of disability rights, Israel and campaign finance reform. They learned firsthand that their voices and words can have an impact. At Senator Rubio’s office, a senior staffer asked for a copy of their speech, as he was not familiar with the disability rights issue and wanted to learn more. Ambassador Rooney met with the students on the House side, and talked directly with them about his shared passion for campaign finance reform. In this month when we celebrate the power of Esther’s words, let us embrace the lessons learned by the students, and make an effort to use our own words for blessing. To speak out for justice, to share our ideas, and to be grateful that we live in a land where we are indeed free. B’shalom, Rabbi Adam Miller

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

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 a few people who have worked tirelessly to make this concert a success. I appreciate all the input, skill and talent each individual has brought to the committee. First and foremost, thank you to my concert chairs, Nancy and Jack Wiadro. Your organization, enthusiasm and foresight has helped to make the evening possible. Though she is often behind the scenes, I’d like to thank Jeanette Fischer, Temple Shalom’s communication specialist who designed the beautiful invitations and fliers you received in the mail. We’re so lucky to have her talent! 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 Sunday March 5th at 7:30pm for an incredible night! B’Shalom, Cantor Donna M. Azu

Debbie Zvibleman We have seen a lot of change in the last few months. Thanks to the marketing committee headed by our Trustee and Chair Bruce Graev, we have a beautiful new logo which reflects how we have come together as “One Family” with many connections. You will also see a new look to the VOICE. This has been a process; changing the paper, color and look to go with our new logo. For the past three years, Temple Shalom has successfully been engaged in a member-centered initiative called One Family. This initiative, which focuses on the values of building relationships, engagement, and inclusion, strives to create personal relationships to help each member feel an integral part of our temple community. Through embracing the tenets that Dr. Ron Wolfson put forth in his groundbreaking book, Relational Judaism: Using the Power of Relationships to Transform the Jewish Community, our One Family program has already had a tremendous impact on our temple community. It has been very rewarding to see so many of our members feeling welcomed, valued, and connected. At the end of January you received a letter regarding another change, our new pledge system which will take effect on July 1. We have looked at several congregations who have gone to a relationship based pledge structure from a monetary dues structure and they have been very successful growing their membership and creating stronger partnerships. In order to make membership in our congregation more comfortable and more accessible to the Jewish community, we are going to be changing our monetary structure regarding membership. As stated, each household will determine its own annual financial commitment. While a sustaining amount will be suggested based on our budget, every pledge, regardless of the amount, will be honored and valued. L’Shalom redefines the meaning of money in the member-synagogue relationship, transforming our members from being “consumers” to being our partners

in community building. We are asking our members to make a pledge that is “a gift of the heart,” thereby removing what we feel have been barriers to membership and participation. This new model of funding embodies our Jewish values of equality, inclusion, respect, trust, and honor. You may read more about the L’Shalom program on our website,, or call the Temple office at (239) 455-3030 and speak with our Executive Director, Eli Montague if you have any questions. You will be receiving a pledge card, as well as the Q & A, later this month in the mail. Our goal is to be very transparent and communicate this new program through our meetings, emails and letters, so that by July 1st everyone will be on board. While change can be difficult, we feel that the changes we are making are healthy for our vibrant congregation. Rest assured that your leadership and staff will be monitoring this program closely. I hope to see many of you at our upcoming temple events coming up this month.

Dr.AnnaSalomon, RJE Generations Together Memory is critical to Jewish continuity. From Abraham, Moses and the exodus from Egypt to revelation of Torah and our sacred texts, memory is the foundation of the Jewish community. We are constantly reminded to remember – our history, our ancestors, loved ones no longer with us. We dedicate our holidays and festivals, prayers, and cultural experiences to remembering. The Ba’al Shem Tov’s words grace the exit of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem – “Forgetfulness leads to exile while remembrance is the secret of redemption.” It is fitting, then, that the Holocaust is something we demand our community, and the world, remember. The lives lost, communities changed or lost to us forever, the lives saved, all deserve to be part of our collective memory and words.

Our community-wide Yom HaShoah commemoration, held this year at Temple Shalom, is Sunday, April 23rd at 10 AM. This year, the commemoration will include a new element – the partnership of our young students with a survivor. During the months of February and March, 6th grade Religious School students from Temple Shalom and 6th-12th graders from the community will be grouped together with six survivors. The students will conduct interviews and get to know the story of our survivors. Afterwards, students will complete a video project and essay that will become part of the commemoration program and service. Bringing these generations together will help build relationships, creating 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. We would like to recognize and give special thanks to the survivors – Eva Sands, Marcel Fachler, Rob Nossen, Heinz Wartski, 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.

Seyla Cohen February started off with a fabulous concert by the one and only Ellen Allard. She engaged the entire audience with both Jewish songs and Shabbat – and the grand finale was our very own Pre-K children up on stage singing with Ellen. Children from TSP, their siblings and children from the community were singing and dancing in the aisles. This concert would not have been possible without the generous programming grant we received from JFCC, as well as generous contributions from Temple Shalom Sisterhood and Cantor Donna Azu’s Discretionary fund. Todah Rabah! Registrations are now open to the public for the 20172018 school year. Due to overwhelming interest in our outstanding school, we are nearing our current capacity and will be opening more classrooms next year.

Without question, Temple Shalom has the most outstanding, educated and dedicated staff of any preschool in Collier County.

Why we produced Hate Spaces By Avi Goldwasser, Director & Producer of Hate Spaces We’ve been observing the increased hostility toward Jewish students on college campuses for over a decade.In 2004 we produced a film calledColumbia Unbecoming,the intimidation by Arab professors of Jewish students at Columbia University. we interviewed the students for the film, we were struck by how sad it was to see students who grew up with the idealistic expectations of equality, and inclusion,harsh and ugly reality that those who support Israel are not always included or treated with equality.

diversity and social justice.In our universities, anti-Jewish hostility is being made fashionable and cool.That is very dangerous; I am not sure we knowto fight fashion and cool. As you know, the Jewish community has always depended on facts, reason, and dialogue to counter discrimination and hatred., truth and logic are a poor match for fashion and cool. While many of the anti-Jewish incidents and the hateful BDS campaigns are now being reported by the media, few in the media are willing to connect the dots and expose the underlying ideology and extremist organizations that are inciting the hostility.

Perhaps whatit worse for them was that university officials and Jewish professors mostly ignored their complaints. Back then we hoped that the documentarybe a wake-up callthe Jewish community and the people of New York.,receiving significant media attention, the power structure in the universities prevailed and the hostility continued.

These were the factors that compelled us to produce this documentary. We wanted to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the problem as a first step to effectively dealing with this hostility.hope that this film will provide such an understanding,that good and decent people will be mobilizedaddress thisscandal that has marginalized Jews like no other minority on campus.

Today, the situationon college campuses is much, and much more pervasive.people do not realize how antiJewish hostility is being institutionalized in the name of

Ultimately, all we ask is that Jewish students be treated fairly and that they are provided the same protections afforded other minority students on college campuses.

Tribute Garden Phase II Transformation The summer of 2015 witnessed the completion of the Temple Shalom Tribute Garden Phase I. With the help of generous donations from the Temple Men’s Club and Temple Sisterhood as the well as the Braverman, Jaffe, Heuer and Sissman families, we removed the three oak 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 has now approved the plans for the final phase. 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 landscape lighting. Dedication The Tribute Garden will offer multiple opportunities to Temple members to honor loved ones. Available for dedication will be benches, trees and individual pavers in two sizes. Donations range from $250 for pavers to $5000 for benches. Monies raised will cover the cost of the additional planned improvements as well future maintenance and upkeep. We hope everyone is pleased with the transformation of this area into a beautiful space for current and future generations to enjoy.

Purim Traditions Purim is coming up soon (March 11th is Purim – check out our Temple celebrations on March 12th!) and with it, we have the opportunity to observe the four mitzvot (commandments) for the holiday. The first is to hear the Megillah read, next is to have a festive holiday meal, third is giving mishloach manot (more on that in a second), and the final one is matanot l’evyonim (gifts to the poor that enable them to celebrate Purim with their own special meal).

Please look for information on the Tribute Garden via email in the coming days. Feel free to contact the Temple office for additional information.

One of the most fun, yet lesser known, mitzvot for Purim is mishloach manot. Mishloach manot are gifts of food that friends (and potential new friends!) exchange on Purim. Often presented in baskets or bags, most mishloach manot include hamantaschen but may also include a wide variety of foods and treats. These gifts are frequently referred to by their Yiddish name, shalachmanos. This year why not give a new mitzvah a try and give mishloach manot to your friends?

Endowment Corner By Suzanne Low, J.D., CFP®, Endowment Chair Endowment Committee Member Why make a gift of stock to the Temple instead of cash? Did you know that even if the value of your stocks has dropped, many of your investments are likely still worth more today than what you originally paid for them? And if you sell, you would pay capital gains taxes at a maximum rate of 20 percent (15 percent for those at or above the 25 percent income tax bracket but below the 39.6 percent bracket; waived for those below the 25 percent bracket). But by using appreciated securities you’ve owned for more than one year as a charitable gift, you will receive two tax benefits:

1. You are entitled to a federal income tax deduction based on the current fair market value of the securities, regardless of their lower original cost.

2. You will be exempt from paying capital gains taxes on any increase in value—taxes you would pay if you were to sell the securities.

A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated

securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. This method of giving has become increasingly popular in recent years. The two key advantages: • Any long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (meaning they were purchased over a year ago, and have a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to a public charity and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities — up to 30% of your adjusted gross income. • Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater your tax savings will be. Let Us Help To learn more, contact Suzanne Low, Endowment Chair, at 239-450-8112 or endowmentchair@naplestemple. org. Together with your advisor, we can help you fulfill your charitable goals while avoiding worries over tax consequences or market conditions.

How to Make a Gift of Stock If you have the physical securities, you can hand-deliver them to the Temple. If you don’t have possession of the physical securities, instruct your broker to electronically transfer your intended shares.

Contributions to Temple Shalom funds are wonderful ways to show your appreciation of family and friends, to celebrate happy occasions and to honor the memories of loved ones. We suggest a minimum donation of chai ($18.00). With a minimum donation of chai, a notice of your gift will be sent to the honoree and mention will be published monthly in The Voice.
