AN UPDATE FROM RABBI JOSH WHINSTON
I am so proud of our community. In a time when we all could have fallen apart, our community has strengthened. Even with nearly no in-person gatherings this entire year, relationships have deepened, and our community has grown in meaning. On the few occasions we have had in-person meetings, our members have flocked to take advantage. At Rosh Hashanah, hundreds of us gathered for a socially distanced shofar blowing. During Chanukah, we gathered in small groups nearly every night to light candles, and on the last day of Passover, hundreds will gather again for a socially distanced ending to our Spring festival. By accepting both the necessity of virtual gatherings and the limitations of in-person events, we have kept each other safe while trying to figure out how to navigate our world this year.

As you may know from Joe's letter, we are moving toward another in-person opportunity for gathering. In the next few weeks, we will begin having outdoor services, first on Shabbat morning to accommodate B'nai mitzvah families and eventually on Friday nights. Whether on Friday nights or Saturday mornings, we will be limiting the number of in-person participants to 25 individuals. On Saturday mornings, we have allocated 20 spots to our B'nai mitzvah families and reserved three spots for community members. If those spots are not filled by the end of business Thursday, we will let the B'nai mitzvah families know, and they will be allowed to fill those spots with other guests. For Friday night services, we will ask that members only sign up once a month. However, if spots remain open by the end of business Thursday, anyone may sign up for that spot even if they have attended services in the last four weeks. Of course, we will continue to stream all of our services on zoom so more members can attend. We will circulate the sign-up form in our weekly email on Thursdays, and a hyperlink will be placed in the calendar for members to sign up as well. We will continue to wear masks during services and social distance, even though we are outside, hoping that more of our members will feel safe attending.

We are optimistic about the future and looking forward to being back in our building as soon as we can be. This summer will be sending out an anonymous survey to our members to gauge vaccination numbers for our community. With data on the congregational vaccination rates, we will make informed decisions about returning to our space for High Holy Days and beyond. While we cannot mandate that our adult members receive vaccination, we do believe it is a Jewish commitment to get vaccinated if one is able. We know there are circumstances where vaccination is not an option, and especially to protect those members, it is incumbent upon us to work to preserve life.  At the time of this publication, all of our senior staff members have been vaccinated.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

AN UPDATE FROM RABBI DANIEL ALTER
As we enter spring and approach the end of the school year, I want to take this opportunity to share my gratitude for our TBE community.

Thank you…

...to everyone who participated in this year's TBE Purim Silent Auction benefiting our School Scholarship Fund. More than 90 items and experiences were donated to our auction. That's nearly three times as many as last year! Participants collectively bid more than 330 times! Together, we raised more than $4200, more than twice our goal and three times what we raised last year! We are overjoyed at our community’s generosity and commitment to providing Jewish education for all our members, regardless of financial status, and we cannot overly express our incredible appreciation!

...to our 16 volunteers who delivered our Torah Toolbox updates each month through the 2020-21 school year. As we have engaged in online learning this year, we have been providing school supplies for all our Hebrew School and elementary Religious School students to lessen the burden on families. In September, students received large, individual, and personalized containers to store their supplies. We dubbed these containers their Torah Toolboxes. Each month, we have prepared updates for each student, and our volunteers have delivered these individual bags to all our students throughout Ann Arbor and the surrounding areas. We could not have done it without our volunteers!

...to all our teachers who seamlessly transitioned to a new format and new curricula designed for online learning. We made this year work thanks to your efforts and care.

...to all our families who also transitioned to a completely new way of doing Religious & Hebrew School. Your participation and willingness to try made this year the success that it has been.

...to our Religious Education Committee and to our amazing school staff members, Emily Alter (no relation) and Sarah Davidson, as well as Nikki Richardson and Isaac Ellis.

We knew it even before the pandemic, but the experience of the past year has confirmed and re-affirmed just how incredible our community is. Together, we have accomplished something great. Thank you all!
AN UPDATE FROM CANTOR REGINA HAYUT
Friends,

We have recently passed the one year mark of our Covid shutdown. This year has been a year like no other in the memories of nearly all of us on earth today. As I write this message, the season is struggling to decide whether to bring a warming hope to our small corner of the world or to remain freezing just a little longer to make sure we are really ready for what comes next.

I can barely remember what things were like prior to our turning inward, staying distanced from one another, masked, and not being able to socialize except through a computer. I really look forward to being able to be together without fear, though finding that comfort with being in closer proximity to one another will take time, so I’ll probably keep the mask for a little while longer than suggested and keep distance for both your sake and mine. These are the unfortunate remnants of this pandemic experience that will take time to erase.

However, I cannot erase all of the positives that have come from this experience either!

For some of us, our world has become much smaller and our connections to one another became much deeper. It wasn’t by design necessarily but it definitely is a happy outcome of our resilience and the power of zoom programs, services, and social events. It came from being able to learn from a guest scholar who lives miles and oceans yet just a click away. We hungrily welcomed them into our homes to learn about Jewish life abroad, hear music, explore liturgy, grapple with questions of life and death, etc.

One program that really brings this reality home is the Sunday Brunch Series Myriad Voices from abroad. Hearing the sounds and unique stories of musical members of the Jewish community from all over the world was a true gift of the magic of zoom. We already visited Paris, Cuba, Moscow and Argentina, and will prepare to learn about the Jewish communities of India (rescheduled date TBD) and Brazil (April 24). Such a program could never have happened under our former circumstances. Meeting, hearing and speaking with these interesting people has made the Jewish world feel closer and smaller. I look forward to the day when leisure travel becomes comfortable again and we can go to visit our new friends.  

Perhaps that day isn’t so far off since many of us have received our vaccines and many more will be eligible in the weeks to come. I am grappling with ways to continue to stay connected with my zoom cohorts as we prepare to reengage with the outside world. How we prepare for our desired shift to a community setting where we can gather and interact safely will determine so much about who we are and who we want to be as we emerge into the light.

Are you ready?
 
 
UPDATE ON LIFE & LEGACY® FROM ROBIN LITTLE
On September 1, 2020, TBE, along with ten other Jewish organizations in Washtenaw County, launched LIFE & LEGACY. This four-year program, funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, provides a variety of resources to Jewish communities throughout North America to help them build endowment funds for financial stability.

The first step for donors is to sign a Letter of Intent (LOI) form, indicating the intent to provide an afterlife-time gift to one or more Jewish organizations in our county. The initial goal was to obtain 18 LOIs in year one, and 25 by the end of year two. I am thrilled to announce that by the time you read this article, TBE will have 36 – Double Chai - LOIs!

How did we reach this milestone? First of all, we have strong leadership in Rabbi Josh, Cantor Regina, Melissa Sigmond, and TBE President Joe Pollak. Secondly, we have a dynamic LIFE & LEGACY team, chaired by Judie Lax and me with Alan Cotzin, Becky Hankin, Margaret Hannon, Wendy Lawrence, Evan Mirsky, Marc Kessler, Stephanie Newell, and Melissa Sigmond (ex officio). Thirdly, we have amazing congregants who have shared with us the many ways that TBE has enriched their lives and the lives of their families. In particular, time and again, we hear how much they appreciate how TBE has kept us connected this pandemic year.


Over the past seven months, we have hosted several Zoom gatherings where members have learned about the program, the differences between expendable and endowment funds, and the various ways to make a legacy gift (i.e., a bequest, percentage of a retirement account or life insurance policy, cash). We’ve also had one-on-one meetings, over Zoom, to talk with congregants in a more informal setting.


So, what are our goals now that we have "over-achieved" our initial goal of 25 LOIs? We want to continue to talk with congregants about LIFE & LEGACY and explain why endowment funds are critical to secure a strong Jewish future. We also encourage congregants to think about the big picture – making sure their wills and/or trusts reflect their values and their legacies. We recommend congregants have conversations with their families about all the legal and health related documents they need to have in place so that their families know their wishes.


There are resources about LIFE & LEGACY here on the TBE website:

https://templebethemeth.org/about-us/tbe-funds/life-and-legacy/

We will be offering information sessions about LIFE & LEGACY, as well as about will and estate planning. Please be on the lookout for these. But in the meantime, if you have already made a legacy gift or you would like to learn more, reach out to Melissa or anyone on the team. We can talk privately on the phone or set up a Zoom meeting at your convenience. We can also provide you with suggestions for financial advisors and estate planning lawyers.

 
CONGREGATIONAL READ: THE COLOR OF LOVE  BY MARRA GAD
As we reflect on the one year anniversary of the pandemic, I’m so proud of the way Temple Beth Emeth and our community has found new ways to join together - from a safe distance!  This includes the Social Action Committee, which has been nimble and responsive. For example, with leadership from Miriam Shaw, we held both sock and glove drives to benefit the Delonis Center and people experiencing homelessness. With the intense focus on racial justice stemming from the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery… the list goes on… our congregation responded with action and learning, including a fabulous series led by Rabbi Whinston and Chuck Warpehoski entitled the Inner Journey of Anti-Racism and a new congregational statement and resource page on our website.

To continue this work, we invite you to join us for the Social Action Committee Congregational Read: "The Color of Love" by Marra Gad, a memoir of a mixed-race Jewish girl raised in Chicago during the 70's and 80's. Marra grew up in a Reform Jewish family going to religious school, Hebrew school and attending summer camp at Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute, a Reform Jewish camp in Wisconsin. Her story reminds us that we still have far to go to bring about racial justice and equity and it is not only for others. Right here in our own congregation we can make a difference to embrace people of all races and to welcome and respect all Jews.

We encourage you to read the book in April and join us in May for discussions virtually and socially distanced, in-person under the outdoor tent. Dates and how to RSVP coming soon! Copies of the book, both paperback and Kindle versions, are available through the
TBE Library. The Ann Arbor District Library also has paperback and CD copies available.

As always, we welcome your input and participation in shaping what social action at TBE looks like and how we can be an inspired, inspiring, and impactful congregation in our community. We have ongoing initiatives such as the Back Door Food Pantry and supporting Alpha House, but we also have project-based opportunities to get involved such as planning the June of Justice programs with a focus on gun safety, food insecurity, racial justice, and LGBTQ equality. Our committee meets the third Monday of each month at 7:30 pm. Join us!


- Naomi Goldberg (VP for Social Action) and Abbie Egherman (Social Action Committee Chair)

NO ONE DESERVES TO BE HUNGRY
by Midge Cone

Everyone deserves food and shelter. Before the pandemic, one in seven inhabitants of Washtenaw County experienced food insecurity. These numbers have only grown during the COVID19 pandemic. En masse, members of Washtenaw County have taken advantage of social service agencies offering food and shelter this year. These are our friends, families, and neighbors.


There are many organizations in Washtenaw County that have offered and continue to provide services to our community during this crisis. We have so many people and organizations to be proud of; I will use this platform to uplift a few amazing efforts and organizations that are doing work to take care of our community during this immediate crisis.

Food Gatherers
Food Gatherers donated 7.8 million pounds of food to those in need throughout the pandemic thus far. They were able to do this by increasing staff, distribution, and partnering with U-M, local restaurants, and community food banks.

Jewish Family Services Specialty Food Pantry
In response to COVID19, Jewish Family Services Specialty Food Pantry began feeding neighbors through weekly delivery of prepared meals. On top of providing 28,000 prepared meals to feed our neighbors, JFS Specialty Food Pantry’s incredible volunteers have already provided groceries to 14,000 members of our Washtenaw community throughout the pandemic.

When hard-working homeless shelters such as Delonis Shelter and Alpha House were full under limited-capacity regulation due to COVID, the City of Ann Arbor allocated extra funds to help vulnerable residents with emergency needs, as well as providing shelter in neighboring hotels.

While we can be proud to know that our community network in Washtenaw County showed up for our vulnerable neighbors during the acute need that is the COVID19 pandemic, the systemic issues that got us here will not dissipate with vaccine roll out. Food insecurity is a systemic issue. Homelessness is also a systemic issue. I will close with sharing an organization dedicated to promoting systemic change. MAZON is a national organization inspired by Jewish values fighting to end hunger for people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel. By promoting systemic change through better policies at the federal, state, and local level, MAZON ensures that our local policy makers protect and strengthen federal nutrition programs. They advocate for public policies that address the cause of hunger, and provide educational tools for empowering the next generation to continue this important work.

Join us on June 11th when the Social Action Committee will be hosting Shabbat. Together we will pray and learn about actions we can take to alleviate hunger, and support those without homes in Washtenaw county. We invite you to donate to MAZON to honor the work being done in our community and the work we have yet to do. https://give.mazon.org/give/328837/#!/donation/checkout

SOCIAL WORK IS A JEWISH VALUE
March is Social Work Month. Temple Beth Emeth offers a special thanks to those who have labored tirelessly during this unprecedented year and is proud of the over 30 members currently working in the field. In a recent talk with CEO of Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County and valued member of TBE since 2000, Anya Abramzon, she wasn’t surprise to learn so many of her fellow members were social workers. "When you think about it, it makes sense," she said. "Social justice, giving back, Tzedakah, it’s a beautiful channel for Jewish values."

For Abramzon, emigrating to the US at age 19, and the help she received then, inspired her to shift from the history and law she had studied in Russia to pursue her MSW at the University of Michigan in the Jewish Community Leadership Program. She interned at Jewish Family Services in 1994, under the guidance of the esteemed Susan Sefansky. Abramzon made such an impression that, in March 1997, Nancy Margolis, Executive Director of the Jewish Federation and JCC proposed she become JFS’s first full-time (and only) employee.

While it would be easy to say the rest is history, Anya’s accomplishments at JFS are so numerous and so significant that they warrant being recounted and reflected upon. Today JFS employs 100 people, offering dozens of services to Washtenaw County residents, leading to the hard earned CARF accreditation in 2009--all delivered in the spirit of Jewish values and tradition. Abramzon has devoted herself to transforming JFS into a sustainable force for good. She collaborated with local entrepreneurs and business people and opened the Herb Amster Center in 2011, and continues to find revenue to support the non-profit mission.

Perhaps most notably, under her leadership, JFS has achieved what few organizations have: in the face of the pandemic, JFS services have grown and enhanced. Rising to meet the needs of the community, JFS adapted to a virtual, safely distanced social service delivery enterprise meeting the needs of the elderly, food insecure, immigrants, and those seeking counseling and job support. Friendly visiting transformed into "Comfort Calls"; transportation services adapted to new safety guidelines; food pantry staff transitioned to delivering food to families and the elderly. JFS worked in tandem with area agencies and congregations to process financial assistance requests, and social workers offered counseling, delivered groceries and medical equipment, and connected folks to community services through virtual programing. But that’s not all. Recognizing the unmet needs in the community, JFS became the area’s most recent Meals on Wheels distributer, offering specialized nutrition such as Kosher and medically tailored meals.

Today JFS is stronger than ever, and when asked what she was most proud of, the ever humble Abramzon redirected credit to her team: "I am proudest of our team, our staff, board, committees and partners. They all know, at the end of the day, it’s not about us, it’s about the community."

Happy Social Work Month to Anya and to all the social workers in our community.

AN UPDATE FROM THE MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE
During this pandemic year, without the annual reminder of high holy day tickets, our congregation had a longer than usual list of families who hadn't renewed their memberships. Around Chanukah, we still had 150 families that we hadn’t connected with. Our Membership Committee made the effort to reach out to the people on that list, and during our conversations, a common refrain was "I just don’t feel connected" or "I haven’t gotten involved." Especially during the pandemic, when in person connection is hard, my advice is to take the first step!   

The first way to become involved is social. Join a group: WTBE; Brotherhood; the Kol Halev Choir.  Classes can be social too and help you engage with others. The morning blessings group that began during the early part of quarantine and has continued ever since has become so cohesive that they are planning a congregational retreat for next year to bring TBE members together in person for a fun weekend of study, worship and community.  Most things are still happening virtually, which in some ways makes it easier to try out a group and decide whether it might be a good fit. Cook dinner with WTBE or join one of their happy hours, study Talmud with Rabbi Daniel, or join Women's Torah Study with Cantor Hayut.

The second way is leadership. We are always looking for people to step up and become leaders within our community. We have many active committees and project-based groups. If you have an interest, there is probably a committee that serves that part of the temple and you’d meet and connect with others who have similar interests. The Membership Committee would be happy to have you join us if you’re interested in welcoming new members and organizing events. The Pulpit Committee does things like plan for the High Holy days and the upcoming Drive Through Plagues for Passover. The Development Committee makes sure we have the financial support to do all the things we want to do. The Education Committee has worked to improve our religious school. The Social Justice Committee is interested in getting to know you through their one-on-one interview program. Either Rabbi Josh Whinston or Executive Director Melissa Sigmond would be happy to talk to you about committees that are currently active. Taking the first step and getting involved results in deeper and more meaningful connections, and a more diverse and inclusive temple leadership; the first place we look for nominations to the Board is often our committees.

I would also be happy to have a conversation over zoom or a COVID-conscious coffee to try to find groups or committees that would help you feel more connected and part of the community at TBE. Please reach out if I can be helpful in any way. We want everyone to feel included and connected.

L’shalom

TAKE ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
by Cathy Marshall

Are you concerned about climate change and how it will impact future generations? A group of TBE Social Action Committee members is forming a Dayenu Circle to take action on climate change, and we would love for you to join us.

Dayenu is a multi-generational movement of American Jews confronting the climate crisis with spiritual audacity and bold political action. Dayenu Circles across the country enable us to mobilize overwhelming Jewish support for climate solutions and raise up a spiritual, religious, and moral voice in response to the climate crisis. Working in concert with other Dayenu Circles across the country, we can advance significant national climate policy while also working locally within our community.

Our tentative first meeting date is Wednesday, April 28 at 7pm on Zoom. The plan is to come together as a group to set goals and create an agenda for change. If you are interested in participating, email Cathy Marshall at happycath@comcast.net – or, just look for the meeting notice on the TBE calendar in late April and show up to the first meeting!

Let’s do our part and take on climate injustice together – join the TBE Dayenu Circle!!

A NOTE FROM THE BACKDOOR FOOD PANTRY
Please note the Back Door Food Pantry's new banner, designed by our Coordinating Committee member Dave Gitterman, affixed facing Packard Street on the white brick wall of the Genesis campus . We are hoping it will help us attract increasing numbers of patrons to our Thursday outdoor food distribution from 4 to 7pm. Never requesting any proof of need, we continue to welcome everyone needing food who arrives while we are open.

We send thanks to our crews of volunteers who unpack BDFP's Tuesday and Thursday deliveries from Food Gatherers and make up brown bags of non-perishables and plastic bags of fresh produce which supplement the pre-filled COVID-19 boxes and assorted perishable food distributed on Thursdays. We are also very grateful to all of our dedicated distribution shift volunteers, braving some extremely cold weather, always masked and socially distanced from one another as our patron families drive up or walk up for contact-free distribution.  

We are truly grateful for all of the support from our volunteers, sponsoring congregations, and donors. Reconfiguring the Back Door Food Pantry the past four months to provide COVID-19-safe, outdoor food distribution with volunteers and patrons masked and socially distanced has been challenging.

Our most recent treasurer's report included the unexpected news that TBE members donated over $10,000 to the BDFP in February! Thank you all for your extremely generous financial support and all of your contributions of time and nonperishables.
