From Rabbi Elliot J. Cosgrove
Shabbaton 2013
W
hen the 19th-century
German poet Heinrich
Heine declared, “Wie
es Christelt sich, so Jűdelt es sich,”
he meant to convey that in matters of
religion, there is inevitably a relationship
between a minority religion and its host
environment. While the message and
mission of the Jewish faith traces back to
Mount Sinai, even the most casual observer can see that that the
expression of that faith has been shaped by forces independent
of our particularity. From the architecture of our synagogues to
the melodies of our prayer, the expression of our faith has been
influenced by the larger social context.
Anyone invested in the past, present and future of American Jewry would do well to consider the larger ecosystem in
which that Judaism has taken and continues to take shape. That
is why our Shabbaton this year will welcome not just one, but
two authorities on American religious life: Dr. Jonathan Sarna
and Dr. Robert Putnam. Throughout this year, our community
has focused on the shifting landscape of American Jewish life,
a conversation we are committed to for the sake of the future
vitality of our own community. Our annual Shabbaton on January 25-26 will serve to sharpen and broaden that conversation by
welcoming these pre-eminent scholars for a day of dialogue and
community building.
Were I to recommend only one book on American Judaism, it would be Dr. Sarna’s treatment of the subject, American
Judaism: A History. His keen eye, scholarly engagement and
felicitous gift of expression make him the “dean” of the field.
Most of all, embedded within his writing is a sense that he is
committed to finding the prescriptive steps needed to address
our people’s future.
Dr. Putnam’s research and writing on the changing face of
American Faith has in many ways, defined the field. His book
Bowling Alone helped explain how the assumptions of American
social life are in the process of being upended, and his more
recent volume American Grace is the authoritative book on the
ever-changing religious and political landscape in America.
Either presenter would suffice as a sole speaker for a
Shabbaton. With them here together, in dialogue with each other,
our community is in for a provocative intellectual tour de force.
Of course, more than a conversation about American Jewish
life, the Shabbaton is our opportunity to be immersed in it. By
setting aside the day to learn, pray, socialize and be part of our
synagogue community, we are all affirming the role each one of
us plays in making our synagogue the flagship of religious life
that it is. I am especially excited that this year the Shabbaton
will take place on Shabbat Shirah, the Shabbat of Song. We will
both begin and conclude with festive music from our cantors
and music educators. Please see the Shabbaton schedule on
the facing page, read about the presenters in the Winter/Spring
Program Calendar enclosed with this Bulletin, and visit pasyn.
org for more information and to register for the always sold-out
Shabbaton.
The Shabbaton would not be possible without the tireless
work of our Director of Programming, Liz Offenbach, and our
entire Shabbaton committee. A big thank you to Vice-President
of Programming Paul Corwin, and to Nadine Habousha Cohen,
Darcy Dalton, Caryn Seidman-Becker, Aaron Stern and Barbara
Weinstein for making it all possible!
Mark your calendar, and be sure to register. See you at
Shabbaton 2013!

annual community event
Shabbaton 2013
Religion in America: Trends and How They Affect the Jewish Community
Friday and Saturday | January 25 and 26
Religion is a constant in American life, and there is much discussion about its impact. Spend two days exploring how the
American Jewish community fits into the religious landscape of America. Dr. Jonathan Sarna, Professor of American
Jewish History at Brandeis University, will present the history of American Jewry, and Dr. Robert Putnam, Professor of
Public Policy at Harvard University, will highlight how trends in the Jewish community compare to American religious
trends. Join us for their lectures and a dialogue.
The Shabbaton takes place on Shabbat Shirah, “the Sabbath of Song,” and we will hear music as well as words. Our own
Matt Check will headline a late Friday night Jewish Bluegrass performance, and we’ll end Shabbat with a concert by the PAS
Music Department to celebrate the forthcoming PAS children’s CD and Ki Eshmerah Shabbat: A Family Siddur.

The Schechter Center for Jewish Culture
PAS In Israel
Neve Tzedek, Tel Aviv
A
s Rabbi Cosgrove
wrote last month,
PAS congregants of all ages
travel to Israel regularly. A Bnei
Mitzvah Family trip will be returning
as this Bulletin reaches your mailbox,
and a June trip for Young Families is
fully booked. There is still time to sign
up for next April’s trip to celebrate
Israel’s 65th Birthday!
Even when we do not have a
congregational trip on the ground,
PAS has a presence in Israel. In 2004,
as part of our "Israel This Year"
programming theme, PAS raised funds
for the arone kodesh in a new Masorti
synagogue in Tel Aviv.
The 2004 Synagogue Trip visited
the shell of the building in Neve
Zedek that was to be renovated as the
synagogue and cultural center. We
presented to Rabbi Roberto Arbib and
to the heads of the Masorti Movement
not only a check, but also a striking
parochet that had been designed and
hand-sewn by our members, under the
direction of Ellen Alt.
Since then, we have followed
the progress of the Center. When
the yet-to-be renovated building
was dedicated in May 2010, Rabbi
Arbib said: Places like the Schechter
Institute and other pluralistic Batei
Midrash that are springing up
across Israel are a sign of a genuine
revolution. A spiritual and honest
revolution that is concerned not only
with the home, but also with the spirit
within the home.
To learn more about the Center and
the dedication, read the email message
sent by PAS members Amos and
Floy Kaminski, who were there. The
message appeared the June, 2010 issue
of the Bulletin, online at pasyn.org/
Publications.
The May 2012 Chairman’s Trip
visited the Center and saw “our”
parochet hung in front of the still
unfinished ark. PAS travelers to
Israel continue to visit the Schechter
Center. PAS educators attended
Shabbat morning services there on the
Educators’ trip to Israel last June.
Work on the elaborate ark
continues. When it is completed, the
Center will send us photos to post on
the screens in the synagogue lobby. In
the meantime, the Center welcomes
our visits and invites us to participate
in courses, lectures, and concerts
during the week, and regular services
of the Kehila every Shabbat.
It is good to know that even when
we are not there, PAS is present
among the places of worship and study
in Israel.

Bradley is in 7th grade
at Leman Manhattan

Bradley is an enthusiastic competitive
fencer and fences most days after

handing out meals to people displaced
by Superstorm Sandy.
Bradley has especially enjoyed
learning his Torah portion, and wants to
thank the clergy and staff for their help
in preparing him for his Bar Mitzvah. A
special thanks to Zach Spiegel who has
been an amazing tutor throughout the
process. Finally, Bradley wants to thank

January 12 | Parashat Va-era
Sam’s Jewish education
began in the Purple
Room at the Early
Childhood Center
and continued at the
Congregational School.
A 7th grader at Horace Mann School,
Sam is an enthusiastic learner who was
selected by the faculty to be a member
of the middle division’s leadership
committee and a peer mentor to new
students.
Sam enjoys a variety of sports,
including skiing, soccer, swimming
and baseball. He is a member of the
alpine ski team at Bromley Mountain
in Vermont as well as his school’s
seventh grade soccer team. Sam has
been fortunate to spend the past five
summers at Camp Greylock in Becket,
Massachusetts.
A caring, sensitive and thoughtful
friend and family member, Sam will
be volunteering this winter at the Bart
J. Ruggiere Adaptive Sports Center at
Bromley Mountain, where he will share
his love of skiing by helping individuals
with mental and physical challenges
learn to ski.
Sam’s parents and his brother,
Miller, are extremely proud of Sam’s
accomplishments and look forward to
the joyous occasion of his becoming
a Bar Mitzvah. They would like
to thank everyone at Park Avenue
Synagogue not only for their guidance
and encouragement leading up to
this important milestone, but for the
wonderful education and sense of
community that PAS has afforded all of
them throughout the years.
January 19 | Parashat Bo
Marti’s Torah portion
is Bo, which explores
Moses’ strength of
character as he and his
brother prepare to meet
Pharaoh. Marti herself
approaches situations with confidence,
thoughtfulness and creativity. She shares
a special relationship with her older
sister Hannah.
Marti’s interests are varied, but her
passion is consistent. In 7th grade at The
Town School, Marti’s favorite subjects
are Math, Science and English. She
plays for a nationally-ranked travel
soccer team, competes in Mathletes, and
loves to cook in “Top Chef” fashion.
She loves her summers at Raquette
Lake Girls Camp where she enjoys
water skiing, tennis and sailing. As a
mitzvah project, Marti is working with
Harlem RBI’s Dream Charter School as
a tutor for students who are passionate
about sports, but need extra help in the
classroom.
Marti began her Jewish education at
PAS in the Gan class. She is proud to
become a Bat Mitzvah and thanks the
clergy and her tutor Ariela Wallace for
inspiring her and helping her prepare for
this important day.
