AN UPDATE FROM RABBI JOSH WHINSTON
Scrolling through my Facebook feed a few weeks ago, I came across a post from a colleague that powerfully spoke to me. Writing about the election the day before, Rabbi Victor Urecki posted, "How am I feeling about America today? Not optimistic about the direction of this nation. But extremely hopeful. A contradiction? No. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks explained it well. He said, 'optimism is a belief; a feeling that things will be better.' And in that regard, I don't feel optimistic about America today…But I am hopeful. Because hope is the belief that we can make it better…Optimism is the belief that they will simply happen. Hope is the belief that only we can make them happen."

Rabbi Urecki responded to the election in his post, but his words ring accurate when it comes to the Coronavirus. As winter approaches, we sit and wait for a vaccine. We are confident it will come, and we also know that it will take a great deal of time for us all to receive the vaccination. Like Rabbi Urecki, I am not optimistic about the immediate future; however, I am hopeful. No, most of us will have no direct impact on this disease's outcome; we are not virologists, we are not producing the science that will lead to a final vaccine, we are not engaged in studies. Even so, our futures are not out of our control, and this is where my hope lies.  

I am hopeful because I have seen and felt how our congregation holds each other. I have seen meals brought to those in need. I have seen countless members show up for virtual services, virtual shivah, virtual class, virtual blessings, virtual havdalah, virtual meetings, virtual learning. I am hopeful because I know, as hard as this winter is going to be, we will buoy each other. Throughout Jewish history, our people have encountered times as trying and worse than what we face today; we made it through those moments with grit and hope. We will make it through this winter as well.
AN UPDATE FROM RABBI DANIEL ALTER
Two summers ago, I received an email from Debi, a friend and former supervisor, inviting me to join a project. You see, Debi’s husband Alan works for Torah Aura, one of the two major Jewish Education publishing companies, and they were asking me to edit and update one of their products: Parashah.
Written for a 6th grade classroom, Parashah explores each Torah portion through the lens of a specific Jewish value and connects the narrative to the value to social action. I felt honored to be asked, and of course, I accepted.

We split the original book in five pieces, one for each book of Torah, and I began tackling Genesis. Luckily, I did not need to start from scratch. The original author, Joel Grishaver, a longtime writer for Torah Aura, had created a solid foundation on which to build. After a few rejected proposals, we agreed to a new vision for the book, and I began updating.

The project, naturally, took longer than we expected. Most if not all of the portions saw significant updates, sometimes requiring complete rewrites. I also added two new features to each portion, an element of Rashi’s commentary and an opportunity for in-class chevruta learning, as well as a much needed Teacher’s Guide.

The new book, Parashah: The Book of Genesis, first appeared on Torah Aura’s website this past summer,
but due to COVID-19, it remained on back order for several months. Now, however, the book is available
for purchase on Torah Aura’s website!

I am so glad Torah Aura offered me to the opportunity to work on this, and I look forward to working on
Exodus soon!

AN UPDATE FROM CANTOR REGINA HAYUT
Friends,

I imagine that, as you read this, most of you are preparing for a quiet Thanksgiving. Over the past 8 months, we have suffered. It has made good times harder to celebrate and bad ones more intensely sad. We have avoided crowds. We hide our faces. We do not hug as much. Many of us have not been in our favorite indoor spaces and are using the term socially distancedas if it has been a part of our everyday conversations for ages. Masks are worn by so many that we give weird looks to those not in masks rather than those wearing them.

Yes - our world has changed so much over the past many months! It has been awful in too many ways and our way of life has been turned upside down. There is no way to diminish the pain and suffering, the burden, hardship or grief that too many of us have had to endure.

How can we even consider that there may be a silver lining? Am I so hardwired to be an optimist that I cant help but seek one out?

I have always placed of utmost importance in my life connections to one another. More than anything, I have hoped and tried to be an agent of keeping us as connected to each other as possible. The Temple Beth Emeth family has played a critical part in helping me manage through these days of pandemic and I have tried to create spaces of connection for all who are seeking that too.

Personally, I have found the joys of
    • singing with Kol HaLev (aka - Virtual Choir)
    • teaching in Religious School, Womens Torah Study, Biblical Book Group and the like
    • studying with Rabbi Josh, Rabbi Daniel, and the many wonderful guest teachers
    • praying with friends in the Afternoon Blessings and Shabbat Services
    • reaching beyond our borders to seek creative ways of keeping programming interesting and fresh, grow personally and professionally, and be open to new possibilities.

We have lost and we have gained so much during these days. I pray that your gains have been greater than your losses. I hope you know that your TBE family is here for you and if you are in need of any kind, I am here for you! I am available to listen and do what I can to be a support to you always, especially during these most difficult days.

I am constantly asking myself, what have we learned that we can take with us from this uncomfortable period of time? There is much that I would like to forget, move past, and fix, but there is so much that I cannot forget that sticks within my heart. If anything good comes from these days, I pray it is that we keep our connections with one another as tight and meaningful as possible.

Stay healthy and safe!!
Wishing you all a Chanukah filled with light and much warmth and love during this coldest of seasons.
Regina
SOME YEAR-END THOUGHTS FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
2020, an unforgettable year to say the least, however, I see a year of innovation and a wellspring of creativity. I am exceedingly proud, in every sense of the word, of witnessing first-hand what the true meaning of “community” is, and what it is to belong.

Community is universal, it clearly transcends in-person and virtually.  One does not lose a sense of belonging simply because we cannot gather together.  Our staff, clergy, lay leaders and so many of you have worked tirelessly to create a wide array of ways to celebrate, worship, work, study and socialize from our homes.

We have successfully endeavored to continue to keep our community connected, strong, and most importantly—together. These past months have also created an ease to integrate, a low hurdle to entry if you prefer, which in turn has led to a surge of participation from members near and far.  One of the most significant consequences of the pandemic I have seen, is the abundance of state-of-the-art programming that we have created at TBE to engage our members—even our Rabbi’s videos have gone viral!

As we approach the start of 2021, I hope you will continue to connect with us virtually. However, in the continuing spirit of advancement, there can always be more, so please do not hesitate to reach out, we are always here for you.
 
 
MEMBER MOMENT
TBE Member Julie Halpert

After my son passed away in September 2017, my husband and I sought solace in our Jewish faith. We often attended TBE Friday night services to say kaddish. In this sacred space, I didn’t feel the need to hold back the tears that streamed down my face. At least two congregants, women we didn’t know who regularly attended those services, always greeted us with a warm hug and asked how we were doing. We came to welcome that sense of connection that took place in the midst of prayer; we felt the arms of the TBE community wrapped around us.

My heart breaks for those who have lost loved ones amidst the pandemic and cannot benefit from being surrounded by the physical presence of others during TBE services to provide that cocoon of support. During a time of so much unrest and uncertainty, praying communally in a sacred space can help strengthen and sustain us.

As Covid-19 shows no signs of abating and with the University of Michigan issuing a stay in place order in response to a spike in student cases, it is unlikely that we will gather in person any time soon. But I have appreciated the ways that Rabbi Whinston has sought to retain that sense of community in virtual settings. It
started with the Rabbi’s weekday morning singalongs with his children that he posted on Facebook. As the pandemic descended, seeing those adorable children surrounding their father playing the guitar was a welcome – if only temporary – distraction from the troubled world. The Rabbi’s Shana Tova video, where he was seen blowing the shofar throughout well known Ann Arbor destinations was another way to bring us close, while celebrating the town where we live. I heard that it also provided a welcome slice of nostalgia for those who attended the University of Michigan or were raised here and now live elsewhere. Another video, which featured congregants blowing the shofar, was similarly clever. I took part in one of the weekly virtual meditation sessions as well, which was an innovative way to provide a brief sense of calm and peace to TBE members.

I wasn’t certain what to expect for the High Holy Day services this year but was particularly moved by the way our clergy, who were leading prayer in an empty sanctuary, made everyone feel as if they were together. Even in this setting, the kindness of congregants was present. One of the women who regularly checked in on us at those Friday night services sent me a private message in the Zoom chat wishing me a Happy New Year.

One of the most moving parts of the High Holy Day services was the prerecordings of the choir. To hear them execute their beautiful harmonies while viewing the individual squares of their faces on zoom helped to replicate a consistent highlight of the service. It impacted me nearly as much as if we were all there, listening to it in person. Many miles away at another congregation, Kol Tzedek in Philadelphia, I witnessed the spiritual power of song when my daughter, Aly, was among those who led the singing for that congregation. Scrolling through the screen, I could see hundreds of faces of congregants chanting and singing in unison. With both services held virtually, I was able to toggle between different types of Jewish congregations – one Reform and the other Reconstructionist -- on my computer. It gave my husband and I the chance to take in two very different but equally affecting experiences of prayer. Though not being able to gather in person carries many consequences, virtual services have a clear benefit in allowing anyone who is unable to physically attend to be a part of the service.

I feel grateful that our Temple leadership has put so much time and effort into finding ways to make us feel like a community even when we cannot worship together in person. These innovations, of course, cannot substitute for what we gain by being in close proximity to each other. But while we wait for that day, these types of virtual initiatives can help us feel connected in an important way.

AN UPDATE FROM JOE POLLAK, TBE BOARD PRESIDENT
During my High Holiday message, I mentioned that supporting the Temple through your membership is the most important way to support our community. I mean that. Thank you for your membership. Thank you also to congregants who can help and who have contributed to TBE’s Members Helping Members Fund and other funds. This is a year when we will undoubtedly need support. If you have yet to renew your membership pledge, it will help our planning if you could contact the TBE Office to renew your commitment by December 15.

We maintain an operating reserve which we contribute to in good years and draw from in other years, usually in relatively small amounts. At the moment, our income from dues is projected to be about 11% below what we budgeted. We have sufficient operating reserves to cover the shortfall in the short term if we need, and we are looking at other measures to limit expenses.

On a separate note, the Board of Trustees has extended the Crisis Management Committee's tenure through the end of 2021, if necessary. The Crisis Management Committee does not expect to recommend that we re-open the building for in-person services this fall or winter. Still, the committee is putting together a task force of health professionals to develop public health criteria to determine when we should re-open the building.

Finally, returning to my High Holiday message, I said that I hoped we could aspire towards a culture of inclusion in all of our programming and services. The Membership Committee is ready to lead us towards this goal, and I have some small progress to report. We have found an agency that can provide a Jewish American Sign Language interpreter for services or life cycle events. We have not had a request for an ASL interpreter in many years, but we are again prepared to offer interpretation or assist members in connecting with the agency for their private events. Please contact the TBE Office to request interpretation, ideally at least two weeks in advance of the need.

I am always happy to hear from congregants. Please email me: JDPollak@gmail.com.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE
Naomi Goldberg
Ways to Give Back This Fall/Winter!
Naomi Goldberg

Our Temple Beth Emeth community continues to rise to the moment through our direct action. For the High Holy Days, you contributed funds to provide more than 100,000 meals through Food Gatherers. Despite the pandemic raging on and the need for physical distancing remaining, there are several ways that you and your families can continue to do direct action mitzvot in our community to help those most in need.

First, the Back Door Food Pantry resumed food distribution on November 12. They are looking for volunteers to do contactless work to distribute food to those in need. Family units with two or three people who can lift pre-packed food boxes and work in close quarters are ideal candidates for this. For more information, reach out to Jim Downward at 734-355-7555 or coordinator@backdoorfoodpantry.org

Second, our community continues to support the Delonis Center and the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County. There are several opportunities to help those who are experiencing housing insecurity. The 2020 Fall Sock Drive is in full swing. Deliver heavyweight winter socks (purchased in a store or online!) for adults to the Delonis Center or to Miriam Shaw’s porch for contactless drop off (more details in the TBE Thursday weekly newsletter). While we won’t be hosting the Rotating Shelter as we have in years’ past, there will be opportunities to provide support in early 2021 to the Rotating Shelter program. Stay tuned!  That said, consider volunteering at the Food Gatherer’s Community Kitchen at the Delonis Center on Saturday, December 12 and beyond. This is a great opportunity for volunteers ages 12 and older to give back! Learn more by emailing Yuni Aaron at yuniaaron@me.com

Finally, our congregation supports the families at Alpha House by providing cooked meals. This is a great way for families to cook at home and deliver or have your favorite takeout delivered. Our congregation is responsible for dates from December 21-December 27. Consider signing up and email Rachel Egherman at tellRachel123@gmail.com to learn more.

If you’d like to learn more about direct action service opportunities through TBE, please join our ‘alerts’ email list by emailing me at Goldberg.naomi@gmail.com
AN INTERVIEW ABOUT LIFE & LEGACY
Life & Legacy is a 4-year partnership program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation (https://hgf.org) that assists communities across North America to promote after-lifetime giving to benefit local Jewish day schools, synagogues, social service organizations and other Jewish entities.  Temple Beth Emeth is a part of this unique alliance with 10 additional organizations in the Ann Arbor Jewish community. Here is Marc Kessler's interview with Judie Lax and Robin Little, co-chairs of TBE's Life & Legacy campaign.

Marc:
Hi Robin! Hi Judie! Thanks for agreeing to share your thoughts about the Life & Legacy Program now underway at TBE.

Robin: It’s my pleasure, Marc. The future of TBE is very important to me.

Judie: Thanks for the opportunity. I feel that it is important for members begin to think about what want they want their legacy to be.

Marc: Let’s start with the basics. When did you join TBE and what areas of congregation life have you been active in?

Robin:
I have been a member since 1993. So many memories! My son David had the last bar mitzvah in
the old sanctuary. I served on the Genesis board. I went on the Kol Halev trip to Eastern Europe in 2004
where we all sang “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” in the Ceausescu Palace to test its outstanding acoustics!

Judie: I joined in 1970 and have enjoyed so many memorable experiences and life events at TBE. I also
went on the Kol Halev trip, but as a groupie, not as a singer! I have been on numerous committees and
the TBE Board. Having my own Bat Mitzvah, just 5 years ago was so very special.

Marc: Wonderful. I have very fond memories of working with both of you on the campaign for the
Music and Spirituality Endowment in Honor of Cantor Emerita Annie Rose.

Judie: Thanks for bringing that up Marc. The goal of the Life & Legacy campaign is also to build
endowments that will help TBE for generations to come. I spent over a decade working with the broader
Jewish community to leave legacies. Having TBE participating in this national program is very
heartwarming for me.

Marc: Planning for the future is certainly an important responsibility for all of us. What does success for
the Life & Legacy campaign look like?

Robin: For me, it is all about telling the story of how TBE enriches our lives. We have seen over these last
seven months how our clergy and leadership have stood up to keep us connected to one another. That
demonstrates why we must ensure that TBE remains a vibrant Jewish home for our children and their
children. Legacy gifts will make that happen!

Judie: As Robin said, it will help us guarantee stability to pursue so many aspects of TBE life. With strong
endowments, we can start each year with a much healthier budget.

Marc: How can TBE members learn more about Life & Legacy? Most importantly, what can they do now?

Robin: Anyone who has already made a legacy gift, or wants to do so, should reach out to us or the
office. We are having a series of informational gatherings, via Zoom.

Judie:
I agree with Robin. The informational sessions we have already had have been about an hour
long, fun, and from what we have heard from those who have participated, very helpful. We are happy
to speak with everyone. It is important to remember that this is not about donating now, but rather a
pledge for the future.

Marc:
Thanks again. We have certainly just scratched the surface. I look forward seeing all this grow!

A LETTER FROM THE MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE
During the High Holy Days, TBE President Joe Pollak announced a new focus on diversity and inclusion this year. He has tapped the Membership Committee to help make that happen. We met with him in October to hear his vision and start thinking about ways that we can help make this happen at TBE.

Given this year’s ongoing virtual status, our immediate focus is on things that will make the virtual world more inclusive. After that, we will look towards the future when we are able to return to the building and in-person events and consider our physical surroundings -- are there ways we could better accommodate people with various disabilities?

One idea that we would like to implement immediately is making names more inclusive on Zoom, since that is our primary mode of interaction at the moment. You can help with this effort. When you join a Zoom meeting, take a moment to check the name that is displayed on your screen under your picture. Does it have a nickname, just a first name, or someone else’s name? If so, please change it so that it has your first and last name. Not sure how to change it or how Zoom got your name in the first place? Here is a good guide for every scenario on how to change your name in Zoom. You could also consider adding your preferred pronouns after your name - you may notice that Rabbi Josh does this consistently and wonder why? Mypronouns.org is a good reference to learn more about this subject. If you’re leading a meeting or virtual gathering, take a minute at the beginning to remind everyone about checking their name and changing if necessary.

Have you noticed an area where TBE could be more inclusive? We’d love to hear about your experiences and ways in which we could do better.

Finally, we are in the home stretch for 2020-2021 membership renewals. We did not have the usual High Holy Day ticket deadline to motivate people to renew their memberships, so we have a lot of people who have not yet renewed. Finances are not a barrier to membership -- if your situation has changed, please contact Melissa Sigmond or Victoria Gross to make arrangements for a pledge amount that works for you.

If you would like to renew, here’s the link to the form.

Here comes the 8Ks of Hanukkah, 8 Krazy Ks Virtual Race!

December 10 - December 18, 2020

Hello, TBE members!

I am the founder and CEO of Epic Races. I have been part of the Ann Arbor Jewish community for many years, as a past president of the JCC, a former HDS teacher and the original chair for Ann Arbor-Nahalal partnership.

I am very excited to let you know about a new event my company has launched. Our business is organizing endurance events such as The Ann Arbor Marathon, Ann Arbor Triathlon, and The Detroit Women’s Half Marathon. Since the arrival of Covid-19, we have only been organizing “virtual” events. We have been partnering with local organizations to keep people active and motivated while raising a little money at the same time.

Our newest virtual race is…. The 8Ks of Hanukkah! You can choose from one of three different virtual challenges, each lasting the 8 days of Hanukkah. All participants receive a shirt, medal and race bib and TBE will receive 10% of each entry fee using THIS SPECIAL LINK.

I hope you will join in this fun event to celebrate Hanukkah this year.
