As the High Holy Days approach, we return. We return in many ways. We return from summer journeys and summer schedules to our familiar patterns of school days and work days, setting sights on a new year full of promise and possibilities. Family and friends return from the places of their wanderings to share in festive holiday meals and sacred assemblies. We return again to our Temple home to see old friends and to make new ones as we gather as a congregation to welcome the New Year. As the High Holy Days approach we return in many ways, but the most important journey of return is one we must make within ourselves. The Hebrew word for “return” is teshuvah, but this word means much more than mere physical return. Teshuvah means repentance which in Judaism is a process of return. When we return to the path of righteousness, we call that teshuvah. When we return to the path of Torah, Jewish living and learning, this too we call teshuvah. When we return to the path of the building of a better world, this is a teshuvah grown larger than ourselves. But, how can we begin this process of return? Beginning is always the hardest part of the journey. Changing course takes an act of will. The path ahead always seems easier than the effort it might take to change. But consider this simple truth: there are just as many steps along the path of a more purposeful life as there are in one without deeper meaning or intention. As we awake each morning to the blessing of another day, we are handed more than that day alone, we are handed an opportunity to make a difference on that day. What will you do with that opportunity to make a 2 THE TEMPLE BULLETIN
difference? There will be no more hours, and there will be no less, we cannot bend time to our will. All we can do is to fill those hours with a life of meaning, to be a blessing in the lives of others, to create a world which is better for our efforts to make it so. This is what it means to return on the High Holy Days. It means to return to a life of meaning. It means to return to the best within ourselves. It means to return to the path of Jewish living and learning which has been our guide for generations past and to make this journey live though our lives as well. May this New Year 5773 be a year of return and in our return may we build a world of blessing and hope for ourselves, for our families, for our people, and for our world.

Open Office Hours for Rabbis Our Rabbis are available to meet with you throughout the week by appointment. Just call The Temple at 423-1818 and set up a time to come by. Or if you would rather, you can just stop by during the Rabbis’ Open Office Hours which are listed below. Rabbi Joe Rooks Rapport Mondays 3:00 to 5:00 pm Rabbi Gaylia R. Rooks Thursdays 10:45 am to 12:45 pm Rabbi David Ariel-Joel Fridays 8 am to 10 am Come by any of these times or call ahead if you want to make sure you won’t have to wait or to be sure the Rabbi is not on vacation.
As we get closer to the High Holy Days, it is fitting that our thoughts move to prayer and worship. The Temple’s role as a beit tefillah, a house of prayer, comes to the forefront as we approach Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and the other yom tovim. Prayer is very personal, and each of us may experience and express it in our own way at services. Our Congregation plans wonderful, thoughtful services to welcome the New Year. We thank our Worship and Ritual Committee and Chair Dr. Karen Berg; our excellent team of Rabbis; and The Temple staff and Executive Director Sally Younger for the thoughtfulness and time they each have invested in planning for the High Holidays. Perhaps you would like to become more involved in the High Holidays and wish to perform the mitzvah of ushering. Our ushers help provide and maintain an atmosphere of warmth and decorum during the services. If you are interested, please contact our House and High Holiday Committee Chair Mark Judah to volunteer. “Let us start on our journey and I will proceed at your pace” (Genesis 33:12). All of us are taking our own private journeys through life’s uncharted waters. Learning more about our faith can only help in our ongoing search for meaning and self-discovery. Are you looking for an opportunity to deepen your understanding of Judaism and your participation within our Jewish community? Maybe you are seeking a chance to reclaim an experience that may not have been available to you when you were younger? Consider participating in the outstanding Adult Education programs offered throughout the year. The Adult Education Committee, led by cochairs Carol Penner and Matt Golden working with Rabbi David Ariel-Joel, offer the following catalog of weekly classes: Sunday Movie Nights featuring Israeli movies, Monday Adult Education Night, Wednesday Temple Scholars Program and Shabbat morning Torah Study preceding Shabbat services. Join us for one of our many educational opportunities, services or events. We look forward to seeing you at The Temple. Please join in welcoming and thanking our newest Temple Board of Trustees members: Joel Coleman, Al Glaubinger, Lori Holland, Stuart Robenson, Matt Schwartz, and Marcia Schuster. In addition, welcome Marlene Ornstein who joins the Board as the president of the Women of Reform Judaism and Ellen Shaikun who joins as the executive director of the Men of Reform Judaism. As we welcome the year 5773, we also welcome members new to our congregation, our services and our community. Please help greet all of our congregants at the High Holiday and Shabbat services. By displaying true Southern, Jewish hospitality we can warmly welcome visitors to our congregation with a smile, a greeting and a handshake. From my family to yours and from The Temple Board of Trustees, warm wishes for a happy and healthy new year. L’Shanah Tova Tikateivu, Susan Abramson Lancaster
For many of us, the High Holy Day season begins with Rosh Hashanah and the start of the new year. Our Jewish tradition however, teaches us that we must prepare ourselves ahead of time with soul-searching and reflection in order to be ready for the Days of Awe. It is during this preparation period that we find Selichot on our calendar. In Hebrew, Selichot translates to “forgiveness” and many of the prayers which make up the Selichot service are similar to those we recite during Yom Kippur. We begin and end this season of repentance asking God to accept our prayers. We reflect on the past year and the changes that we wish to make in the upcoming one. Selichot observance at Temple is on Saturday evening September 8, with an oneg at 10 pm and the Selichot service in the Chapel at 10:30 pm. Let us come together as one congregation to bring our wishes for health and happiness, growth and prosperity for our community and its members. L’Shanah Tovah Sally Younger Temple Administrator

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful summer. It has been a very active one for our WRJ members. We enjoyed the success of our “White Elephant Arts & Crafts Show” chaired by Gail Herman. She worked hard and her efforts were well received. Many thanks to all the workers and vendors who participated in our sale. It was a fun, successful experience that we all enjoyed. We are already planning next year’s event. Our membership campaign is in high gear. Carole Rifkin, our membership chairperson, has reported new members. If Marlene Ornstein and Gail Herman you have not joined, but would like to, please contact Carole. Please join us on October 7th from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm for a fun afternoon of desserts and games in the Klein Center. Please shop our beautiful gift shop for your Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot needs. We have many new items to add to your holiday tables. We will again be passing out a sweet treat after morning Rosh Hashanah services. Good health and a Happy New Year to everyone. Shalom, Marlene Ornstein WRJ President

This is the time of the year for Jewish beginnings, a time when looking forward reminds us to review our past, saying we are sorry for intentional or unintentional wrongdoings. The challenge of being Jewish is nothing short of challenging. For new beginnings, allow me to officially introduce Brotherhood’s executive director, Ellen Shaikun. Yes, Ellen is a woman. She stepped up when I asked if she would help our leadership. Since she cannot become a member of the Brotherhood, we created a fitting position. Ellen has started with great gusto in suggesting and implementing wonderful ideas to help grow the MRJ membership and offer great programming. As interim president of the Brotherhood, I am looking for more people to step up and help our great organization. We are providing more opportunities for Jewish men to gather and do kind acts for our community. Last year, we presented Bar Mitzvahs a one year membership. We now need these fellows to step up along with their fathers and grandfathers. L’dor vador. Although our annual dues are only $36, those in the Mensch ($50) and Real Mensch ($100) categories enable us to offer reduced dues for those less fortunate. Our membership is open to all Jewish males and non-Jewish male spouses/partners of our Jewish community. Please step up and join this year and make a commitment to get involved. Shanah tovah.

Our first day of Hebrew School is Wednesday, September 5, from 4:30 to 6 pm. Pizza, sports, and homework time is hosted before class in the Klein Center. Sunday School begins on September 9 from 9:30 am to noon. Each family has been mailed its classroom assignments. On the first day, please remember to bring two jars of apple juice per child. Calendar of Events • Sunday, September 9, High Holiday Experiences at Sunday School • Sundays, September 16 and 23, no Sunday School due to the High Holidays (no Wednesday Hebrew School September 19 and 26). • Sunday, September 30, Sukkot Experience/Preschool Program/Family Picnic. • Preschool Progam for 2–4 year olds 9:45 am in the Big Room (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org) • October 12 – Simchat Torah, consecrating our kindergarteners and new students, blessing our first graders and ninth graders, and a celebration with the entire congregation. With the start of the new school year and celebrating Rosh Hashanah, at home it is the perfect time to talk about new beginnings. Celebrating a fresh year provides an excellent opportunity to look at how much we have grown, reflect on where we have been in the past, and peek ahead to where we are going. Here are our favorite suggestions to enhance your family’s New Year: 1. Write down each of your wishes for a sweet year and read these at the table on Rosh Hashanah. 2. Acknowledge wrong behavior and say “sorry.” Then, do not repeat the behavior. 3. Follow the customs for the New Year such as eating sweet foods as a symbol of our desire for a sweet year (symbolized by eating apples and honey). 4. Attend High Holiday services so that your children have the opportunity to participate in prayer and hear the shofar. We hope the Holy Days greet you with a wonderful new beginning and the opportunity to look inward and reflect on the past years’ accomplishments and growth. Shanah Tova - Happy New Year Joyce Eiseman
The High School of Jewish Studies students will start the school year by participating in the annual communitywide Hunger Walk on Sunday, September 9. Classes will begin on Sunday, September 23, (11:15 am–1:15 pm) and continue through March 24. The school will see many changes this year, in response to student evaluations and feedback, including a new location. The high school will now meet at the Jewish Family and Career Services (JFCS) building, which offers larger and more comfortable seating, and the “seminar style” of the rooms will make classes more intimate and informal. The High School of Jewish Studies is a communitybased program, sponsored by and including faculty from all of Louisville’s five synagogues. Ninth- and tenth-grade students benefit from the opportunity to meet and study with their peers from across the city. Plans are also being made to bring back 11th and 12th graders by offering classes for college credit. The school has just become affiliated with the North American Association of Community and Congregational Hebrew High Schools (NAACCHHS). The high school is in a transition year, as Principal Sam Gordon enters much-deserved retirement in December. I, Lisa Rothstein Goldberg, will be the new principal. Recently, I attended the annual NAACCHHS conference in Philadelphia and brought back ideas both for the school and the Jewish Community Center’s teen programs. I have more than 10 years of experience as a Jewish educator and have attended numerous conferences and seminars. Questions regarding the High School of Jewish Studies should be directed to me at: email@example.com.

A Time To Remember Pillars of The Temple “MOSAICS AND MEMORIES” HAROLD BERG First and foremost, Harold Berg was a physician, a man whose entire life was dedicated to the art of healing. In addition to his being chief of surgery at Jewish Hospital and on the medical faculty of the University of Louisville Medical School, Harold was involved in numerous research projects regarding cancer, arteriosclerosis and nuclear medicine. Beyond his devotion to the science of medicine, was his commitment to his Jewish Faith, his Temple, and The State of Israel. I wo would add that for his work in helping to provide medical care for Israeli military wounded and in developing a surgical research laboratory at Hadassah Medical School in Israel, the State of Israel awarded Doctor Berg the Jerusalem Medal. Yet, this portrait would be incomplete were I not to mention that Harold had a most significant avocation. Fascinated by the ancient art of sculpting with mosaic tiles, he became an accomplished mosaicist. It was a passion that enabled him to combine his surgical skill with an aesthetic sense, that gave him a unique way of contributing to the institutions he valued most, on important occasions in the life of the community! Each work of art that Harold created is testimony to his profound faith and his deeply held convictions. At Jewish Hospital are his tributes to the endeavors of all those who work in the healing professions, whose lives are dedicated to restore wholeness and wellness to the sick and infirm. At the Jewish Community Center is his memorial to the millions who perished in the Holocaust, and those who survived to establish Israel as a land of hope and promise for the Jewish People. Everything that Harold created carried a message of what was in his heart and deep within his soul. His mosaics are present throughout the city -- at the Medical School, in churches, at the Louisville Zoo, as well as in the American Embassy in the State of Israel. But most dear to him are those at The Temple, recognizing historic moments in the life of the congregation and memories of life cycle events in his own family. On Sunday mornings, he would give tours of his works to the eighth grade students in the religious school and offered them a six weeks “hands on” mini course, discussing the Jewish themes and teaching them how to make mosaics. It included a field trip to his home where he showed them his studio, his thousands of tiles and explained the process to them. An interesting footnote, that he revealed to the class, is that in each mosaic he implanted one baby tooth of either his children or grandchildren, in place of a tile -- a real part of his family! Needless to say, it was something they all went back to look for, as does everyone familiar with that fact. Harold’s mosaic class was always a favorite! Among his mosaics at The Temple are those honoring his four daughters on the occasion of their becoming B’not Mitzvah, as well as those paying tribute to his rabbis on momentous occasions in their lives. One of his prized mosaics, recognizing the role of women in Judaism and the importance of Jewish education, stands at the doorway to The Temple Religious School. Others signify the ideals of the Biblical Prophets to establish peace and justice in the world, so imperative in Reform Judaism. There is a tribute to the Boy Scouts and their service to our Temple and the greater community. Most significant is his portrayal of the historic consolidation of Congregations Adath Israel and Brith Sholom in a mosaic adjacent to the main entrance of our Temple, an event which he symbolized with the inspiring image of a Tree of Life! How grateful we are to Dr. Harold Berg whose works of art stand as enduring monuments to his life’s work and his devotion to this congregation!

Selichot at The Temple Saturday, September 9, 10:30 pm Join our Temple community for a creative Selichot Service in the Waller Chapel, led by Rabbi Gaylia R. Rooks with The Temple Congregational Choir - Shir Chadash. Selichot is usually observed on the Saturday night just prior to Rosh Hashanah, a solemn and fitting preparation for ten days of reflection and self-examination. This year Selichot comes a week earlier because tradition insists that we must have a minimum of three days between this overture and the beginning of the Days of Awe. Time to prepare our hearts and our souls, time to go to others and ask for their forgiveness, time to stand before the Eternal One and take an accounting of our lives in the year that is ending.

We are in the midst of our 10th Habitat for Humanity Partnership build. This year’s homeowner is Monica Rios, a vibrant, passionate young woman trying to make a stable environment for herself and 2 year old daughter. She is employed at UPS and volunteers with our Interfaith Community partners: Episcopal and Lutheran Communities and Pakistani physicians on her rehab home at 3029 River Park Drive each Friday and Saturday. Jim Richey is still our house leader and makes everyone kindly welcome! The sponsorship fee of this home is $28,000 and thanks to many contributors within the Jewish Community, we met our financial goal. Temple donors included: Carolyn and David Neustadt, Amy and Lee Benovitz, Mark and Tammy Switow, Shelley Kusman and sons, Mark and Sandy Hammond, Steve and Joanie Samuel, Tom and Chris Hirsch, Alan and Michelle Hertzman, and Sonia Hess. Temple builders included Mickey Nathanson, Gary Katz and Bill Fitzgerald. We provided lunch and volunteers on July 27 and are seeking volunteers for September 14 and October 19. All volunteers are welcome any Friday or Saturday 8:30 am-3 pm. Contact Amy 4250373 to RSVP. Thanks also to all donors of unused Bats tickets. So far we have redeemed these tickets to allow about 500 underprivileged and mentally challenged community members to enjoy America’s pastime. Thanks to Temple members Janet and Sonny Meyer, Larry Simon and Shelton Weber for the bulk of the tickets! Thanks to donations to The Temple Fund for the Homeless, school supplies for the school aged children at the Volunteers of America Family Emergency Shelter were provided. This year the shelter also needed school uniforms as well and a special thank you to special donors who provided new and gently used khakis and polo shirts for shelter children who attend JCPS schools requiring uniforms. Stay tuned for Merry Mitzvah opportunities for November and December. Remember, we should have a cold spell in October so feel free to drop off winter clothes –especially for children at Temple now! Thank you.

Flarsheim Tree Dedication On Sunday, July 8, family and friends of Phil Flarshiem gathered to dedicate a special tree donated in his memory. Phil’s friends Dick and Bert Wolf planted a tree as a memorial to Phil for his lifetime of friendship, service to the Temple congregation, and his love of gardening. Lois Flarshiem shared memories of Phil’s work with the congregation’s move to our current location and his love of gardening. The congregation continues to benefit from the many ways that Phil Flarsheim made a positive and loving difference in our lives. Thank you to Dick and Bert Wolf for honoring Phil with this living memorial. May his memory be a blessing.
The Frankel Memorial Chapel, built in 1905, located on the Brith Sholom side of the Temple Cemetery on Preston Highway, recently experienced trauma to the structure. Our insurance provider requested that the sagging and damaged roof of the chapel be removed. In the process of removing the roof, the rotten wood that was supporting the roof collapsed, resulting in the loss of the roof and portions of the walls of the historic chapel (pictured below). The damage to the building and the determination for future plans for the structure will be evaluated by The Temple Cemetery Committee. No plans have been made at this time.

C on nec t ions Jazz in the Sukkah
Welcome back to the school year from TiLTY! (Youth Group) TiLTY will be leading services in The Waller Chapel again this year for both Erev Rosh Hashanah and Erev Yom Kippur. It is the later service in the Chapel both of those days (usually 8pm). We will also be hosting a New Years Eve party on Erev Rosh Hashanah in The Klein Center, all high school students are invited to attend, and thanks to the Brotherhoods generosity, there is no charge for this event. It starts right after services on Sept 16th, lasts until 11pm, and is always a good time! We will be joining the rest of Temple as we all walk to end Hunger on Sunday September 9th, and in the Louisville AIDS walk on Sunday October 14th - so mark those fall Tikun Olam dates We will be reaching out to all Freshmen and Sophomores in September to invite you to join us at our New Years Eve party, and to talk about upcoming events in October! If you or your parents have any questions at all, they can reach TiLTY’s advisors - Laurence Nibur (LNIBUR@hotmail. com : 489-2212) or Sara Ruby (SaraRuby@gmail.com) anytime, and we’ll be happy to chat! Blankets & Blessings Kickoff Brunch Sunday, Sept. 30 - 12:15 pm (Klein Center) It’s the beginning of a new year of creating “no-sew” blankets for homeless babies, along with other mitzvah projects. Start it off with a homemade brunch by Marlene Schaffer, Chairperson. The “price” of admittance - bring a yard of felt or one completed baby blanket! Want to get involved or find out more about this project? Call Marlene at 423-8420
