Temple Celebration Honoring
Diane E. Berg, R.J.E.
Save the Date!
Saturday Evening, May 30th
Make your plans to attend a very exciting event at Temple Beth El. We are honoring our
beloved Director of Education and dear friend, Diane Berg. Our relationship with Diane
dates back well over forty years, throughout which she has shared her passion for Jewish
learning and Jewish values with generations of students – and their parents. Diane has
earned many honors and awards over the years, and has also served in leadership
positions at NATE, LITE, CAJE and JGSLI (the acronyms to be explained) and other
Jewish educational institutions. Weʼre planning a wonderful party, loaded with
entertainment, food, drink, dancing and lots more.
Our featured entertainment for the evening will be a musical presentation by our own
Chutzpah Troubadours. Weʼve enjoyed their artistic talents and creativity for many years,
and look forward to being dazzled once again.
We will also be holding a Silent Auction at the event, so your gift-basket donations will
be well-appreciated, as well as artistic items you may create or craft with your own hands.
We will be showcasing our talents, as well as our generosity.
We will be engaging our Religious School students with an “acts of loving-kindness”
gemilut chasadim project. A presentation of their good deeds, and a very special quilt,
will be displayed at the event. And we will be working on a Memories Book; electronic and
hard-copy submissions to the Book will be displayed as well.
In addition to applauding Diane, the celebration serves as our major fundraiser for the
season. An Honor Committee is being formed, and we will be creating a Scroll of Honor,
and an Honor Book, and we will be asking each of you to make a contribution and to be
as generous as you can. All gifts will be acknowledged in our Book and all will be
recognized for their participation. Your generosity helps support the ongoing vital work
of our Temple, sustaining the programs that serve our congregation and sustaining
our relationship with the world-wide progressive Jewish community and with the
community at large.
So please, plan on attending our Celebration, and think of how you would like to participate.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please email us at [email protected]
More details coming soon!

The True Sanctity of Kaddish
Rabbi Jeffrey Clopper
“The origins of the Kaddish (mournerʼs prayer) are mysterious; angels are said to have brought
it down from heaven...” - Gates of Prayer: The New Union Prayer Book, UAHC, © 1975
This phrase, from the old blue book, Gates of Prayer I used as a child, has remained with me. As I grew older, unlike
others in my temple community, I was fortunate not to have experienced the death of a close friend or the loss
of a family member until well into college.
Now as an adult, and certainly as a rabbi, I have come to appreciate the potency to be found in the practice
of reciting Kaddish. Yet it is not so much in the words themselves. When you consider the text of the prayer, it is
nothing unusual or unexpected. Written in the Aramaic, this is the vernacular of our people from two thousand years
ago. I believe the Kaddish derives its power from two places:
The prayer gives a mourner something on which to focus, words into which tradition pours a sense of purpose and
meaning. With these very words, you honor the legacy of a loved one, just like our people have done for generations.
Kaddish is meant to be said in the presence of community; not while you are alone in your sorrow, but in a time and
place, where others can share your pain. Those gathered can help console you, while they hear the stories that
remain in your heart. It is not easy, but in talking about our loved ones - in time - it hurts a little less.
This is the true power, the true sanctity of Kaddish. This is the reason why Judaism centered its sacred mourning
practices bringing people together to say Kaddish. Sometimes it is in the synagogue. However, it also takes place
in the very homes where the mourners live. It is a Mitzvah (commandment) for the mourner and yet, it is a gift that
others can give to be part of a Minyan service when Kaddish is said.
I feel very proud of this community that we have a dedicated core of congregants who volunteer to lead a Minyan
service when they are needed. When requested, they are the ones who step forward to make it possible.
Over time, some of our leaders have retired and moved away from the area. There is still a strong core. However,
adding to its ranks is needed. If you are someone who likes the melodies of prayer, if you know the depths
of sadness that can come from mourning and know how prayer can be a comfort, then this is the opportunity for you!
It requires your presence a couple of times a year and you will touch the heart of another human being and offer him
or the chance to speak the powerful words of Kaddish.
Please join me on April 23rd and 30th for a two-session workshop. In the first session, we will explore the mystery of
Kaddish and learn the howʼs and whyʼs of Jewish mourning practices. The second session will be for those who might
be interested in serving as a leader for a Minyan service. We will go through the structure of the service and youʼll
receive materials to help you, should you decide to volunteer. Even if you have reservations, I invite you to come and
learn more about this important aspect of Jewish life.
No one wants to have to say Kaddish. However, when the time comes, it is comforting to know tradition
has offered us guidance and given us a gift of the words we can say.

Essential Jewish Learning for
its Own Sake Can Be Joyful
Earlier in February, I attended the National Association of Temple Educators Conference, (now called the Association of Reform
Jewish Educators) celebrating its 60th year. It was an opportunity for me to “stretch my brain”, learn from my colleagues
and to be exposed to the newest innovations in the field of Jewish Education. I loved it. Nothing is better than having the
opportunity to learn, even at my age.
In preparing for his conference workshop, facilitator David Bryfman asked educators to provide the names they call their
Synagogue School. The answers included the common: Religious School, Supplementary School, Complementary School and
Congregational School. One educator, I hope “tongue in cheek”, called his school “Jewish Adventure in Learning” (JAIL).
Mr. Bryfman continued by saying that when people think of the word “school” they think of desks, chairs, curriculum, books and
studying. He urged us to create an alternative way to express what we are doing beyond the constriction of the word “school”
and to help parents and children think differently about the learning there.
All parents want their kids to be happy. They want their children to feel successful in their learning and to be good human beings.
They want their children to have pride in being Jewish. The Clergy, our teachers and I, want the same things. We know that we
need to go beyond curriculum and books to reach and teach our students how to apply Judaism to their everyday lives.
We strive to make every moment of education an experience that leaves each student inspired and maybe even transformed.
We want our students to know that learning; especially Jewish learning, will enrich their lives and allow them to make ethical and
compassionate choices and, to gain the most joy and knowledge. Jewish learning is life-long.
I believe that we are more than desks, chairs and curriculum. Our teachers work tirelessly because, like our parents, they believe
they can help motivate our students to take what theyʼve learned to make first themselves and then the world better. Judaism
is the way to get them there. I agree with David Bryfman: “Education isnʼt just about transmitting information, it is about
transforming lives.”

Barbara Pickell, Congregant
An Important Book about Israel?
In last monthʼs bulletin I read with dismay that a temple book club had chosen “The Promised Land” by Ari Shavit and
considered it an “important book about Israel”. This is a book filled with distortions and omissions - even alleging a
massacre - giving fodder to those who would delegitimize Israelʼs right to exist. Furthermore, as a Eurocentric book,
it focuses on the arrival of European Jews to “Palestine” in the 19th and 20th centuries with scant mention of the Jews
who had already been living in the Eastern Mediterranean for an unbroken 3,000 years. Today, 50% of Israeli Jews
are descendants of these indigenous people.
In describing his great-grandfatherʼs arrival in Israel, Shavit portrays him as not seeing the land as it was, already
populated. This is a gross distortion of the actual reality as seen by Zionists like Herzl. Contrary to popular legend,
the Zionists did not have a slogan of “A land without people for a people without a land”. The Zionists were well aware
that the land was inhabited (although thinly settled) and Herzl promoted a detailed program of how land was to be
legally purchased for the establishment of new Jewish communities. This is the blueprint that was followed.
As a consequence of the 1948 war, 620,000 Arabs were displaced from Israel and 850,000 Jews were expelled from
Arab Muslim nations. While Israel absorbed the Jewish refugees, the Arab nations denied citizenship to their fellow
Arabs perpetuating a permanent refugee crisis. By comparison, of the more than twenty- five million refugees from
WWII and the partition of India, all were successfully relocated in host nations. None of this is of interest to Shavit
because it does not fit his “tragic” view of Israel.
Shavitʼs book is hardly known in Israel because it has not been translated into Hebrew. In Israel, there would be
a population that would recognize the many historical errors. Since its publication in English in November 2013, the
book has appeared in Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Hungarian, and Polish, but not Hebrew. On December 4th 2014, Israeli
veterans of the 1948 Lydda battle attended a panel discussion where they learned what Shavit had written. They
were incensed by his accusation of a massacre. (See article by Martin Kramer (President of Shalem College in
Jerusalem and past director of the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University)
in ISRAEL HAYOM http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_opinion.php?id=11027
Despite Shavitʼs disclaimer that this book “is not an academic work of history”. His “blow-by-blow” description of the
1948 battle for Lydda reads like history. Shavit portrays this battle as a massacre and points to it as proof
of a premeditated and systematic plan to dispossess and expel the Palestinian Arabs. Shavit provides no footnotes
whatsoever, so he is able to shade and blend his viewpoint into accounts by the participants. When historians like
Martin Kramer go to the sources in the archives - the story is completely different. Kramer provides a point-by-point
rebuttal in the online magazine MOSAIC. http://mosaicmagazine.com/essay/2014/07/what-happened-at-lydda/
For those who want factual, annotated history, I recommend the recently published book by Caroline Glick –
“The Israeli Solution”. Even if one doesnʼt agree with her conclusions, itʼs a fascinating read.
Books like Shavitʼs give the world another reason to demonize Israel and to hate all Jews, as there is a thin and
diminishing line between being anti-Israel and being anti-Jew.

Audrey Gold, Chai Club President
Welcome to the Chai Club
Vote in the Zionist Congress Election
Your vote for ARZA in the 2015 Zionist Congress in Jerusalem can promote the ideas of Progressive Jewish values and help
provide funds to promote these values.
The first Zionist Congress was started by Theodor Herzl in 1897. Every four years the Zionist Congress meets in Jerusalem.
All Jewish people over the age of eighteen can vote. This election gives Jewish people a voice in policies in Israel. This vote also
will determine the programs which will be funded. All this is determined by the voting taking place at this time. Funds are
divided based on the number of votes. The Reform movement needs your support. A vote for ARZA leads to funds for the
Progressive Movement in Israel including Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC) which promotes a tolerant, pluralistic,
compassionate Jewish Society. IRAC is against gender segregation and the exclusion of women. Remember “Women of the
Wall” and their gender segregation on buses.
To vote, you need to fill out a form and pay $10.00 to cover expenses. TBE has forms to use and these are located in the lobby.
You may vote online at www.reformjews4israel.org.
The election runs currently through April 30th. Your opinion counts. Make your voice heard. Vote Now!

Coffee House
"Coffeehouses largely serve as centers of social interaction: the coffeehouse provides social members with a place
to congregate, talk, write, read, entertain one another, or pass the time, whether individually or in small groups of two
or three people. A coffee house can serve as an informal club for its regular members." (Wikipedia)
Coffee shops in the U.S. arose from the espresso and pastry centered Italian coffeehouse in the Italian - American
immigrant communities. From the late 1950's onward, coffeehouses served as a venue for entertainment most
commonly folk music performers during the American folk music revival.
What does this have to do with Temple Beth El? Years ago TBE held a number of coffeehouses with talented
members performing and attendees singing along. It's been a while since we had a coffeehouse and itʼs about time
we have another one. Times are different, and the format may be different, but we still have a very talented musical
community. Do you have a talent, singing, playing an instrument or are you a comedian? Do you enjoy listening
to music, and drinking coffee or just meeting new people or spending time with friends? Come join us on April 18th at
8:00PM either as a performer or a member of the audience.
If interested in performing, contact Pam Reingold: [email protected]
Come have some coffee, sit back and enjoy yourselves. It's only $9:00 per person and $18:00 per couple.
Project H.O.P.E.
Carol Werblin, Social Action Chairperson
For many years, Sue Seiler and I pondered how we could start a soup kitchen at TBE. However, space always seemed to be
an issue. Then, two years ago, our dream of making sure people did not go hungry, became a reality. My good friend and
temple member, Peter Shore, approached me with an offer from the Moose Lodge in Greenlawn and Peterʼs own group of men
from Centerport who wanted to give back to the community. Gary Shea, Governor of the Lodge, wanted the Moose Lodge space
to be used by our temple to hold community events. And we couldn't have a better place to hold our suppers.
Having worked with Dan Diviney, Youth Minister from St. Hugh, I knew about a program he started ten years earlier called Project
H.O.P.E. - St. Hugh. Their project serves a Sunday Supper twice each month to those in need. We met with him over the
summer of 2012, and we became Project H.O.P.E. - TBE.
In partnership with St. Hugh, we began hosting Sunday Suppers each month. Whatʼs more, Dan and St. Hugh very generously
helped with our start-up costs. We weren't quite sure how we would fund our program, but again, things worked out amazingly
well. Your help as congregants have embraced this program as much as we do. You have helped us feed almost two hundred
people each month by setting up, serving, cooking, and donating dinners and desserts. Some members have even donated
money to this program in honor or in memory of a loved one.
Among our generous donors, Howard Schneider has really come to love Project H.O.P.E. Not only does he volunteer each month
with his entire family – (Mimi, Evan, and Jordan), while Howard is furiously slicing bread, Mimi and the boys are helping with the
set-up.
But it doesn't stop there. Howard is also part of “Dentists for a Better Huntington”, a group that makes an annual donation to three
charities in Huntington. He has told the group about our wonderful programs. Project H.O.P.E. was voted a recipient of one
of these awards. We attended the ceremony at Black and Blue restaurant, where we received a check in the amount of five
thousand dollars. Based on Howardʼs praise of the program, another dentist contributed an additional thousand dollars,
realizing how vital this program is to the people of Huntington. So, with the help of the youth of Huntington, who volunteer their
time each month, and this generous donation from Howard and his “Dentists for a Better Huntington”, Project H.O.P.E. will
continue to feed people well into next year. Thank you, Schneider family.
If you would like to know more about Project H.O.P.E., and learn how you can help, go to the temple website or contact us
directly at [email protected] or [email protected]

The Orange and Miriamʼs Cup
The orange has become one of the ceremonial symbolic foods on the Seder plate at many womenʼs Seders. The first
time I heard about the orange, the story was that a rabbi interviewed on a radio station was asked about the role
of women rabbis. Supposedly he said, “A woman on the bimah makes as much sense as an orange on the Seder
plate.” After that broadcast, oranges made their appearance on plates.
However, I learned recently that the origin of the orange on the Seder plate began with Susannah Heschel. Heschel,
the daughter of one of the leading Jewish theologians of the 20th century, Abraham Joshua Heschel, added the fruit
to the plate in the 1980s as a sign of solidarity with lesbians and gay men. Since that time, the orange has become
a symbol of the empowerment of Jewish women. Either way, the orange represents the fruitfulness of giving voice
to those who havenʼt been heard.
Alongside the traditional Elijahʼs cup filled with wine on the Seder table, many now add a cup of water to highlight
Miriamʼs contribution to our history. Miriam was Mosesʼ and Aaronʼs sister and was known as a prophetess and
a leader with her brothers. Her wisdom, optimism and faithfulness gave the Israelites confidence to overcome the
hardships of the Exodus. Wherever Miriam went, she miraculously found water throughout the desert. Miriamʼs
cup reminds us of her strength and is a symbol of hope and renewal. When we sing and dance, we recall Miriamʼs
encouragement for freedom.
“As Miriam stood upon the shores and gazed across the sea,
The wonder of this miracle she soon came to believe.
Whoever thought the sea would part with an outstretched hand,
And we would pass to freedom, and march to the Promised Land.
And the women dancing with their timbrels,
Followed Miriam as she sang her song
Sing the song to the One whom we’ve exalted
Miriam and the women danced and danced the whole night long”.

Make a Difference
This has been a really busy weekend. My family and I had the privilege of participating in two different community
charitable events.
The first was the “Give Kids a Smile”, a dental screening event sponsored by the Suffolk County Dental Society that
was held at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. Together, with approximately seventy other professional
volunteers, we provided almost two hundred children free dental exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, a dental
health puppet show, a Lionel train exhibition and free admission to the aquarium for the day.
The second event was Project H.O.P.E. – TBE, led by Carol Werblin and Sue Seiler; where an intrepid crew of soup
makers, cooks, table setters, bread and chicken cutters, servers and pot washers provided a healthy meal to seniors
and more than a hundred less fortunate members within the Huntington community. Next month they will do it
again…and again…
One of the main foundations of Judaism is Tikkun Olam – “repairing the world, and making the world a better place”
while passing these values to our children. Temple Beth El offers many opportunities for both adults and children to
make a positive difference in the lives of those in our local community. Please join us. Whether you do this through
donations of your time and skills, monetary donations, or a little of both, makes no difference.
The important thing is to make a difference.

Surelle Heiberger, Chairperson
Kol Nidre
Among the positive aspects of being the Kol Nidre Chairperson, along with much work and responsibility, come a few
opportunities to “break the doldrums” of winter. First, my job is drawing to an end for this year (Yippee!) Secondly,
I can happily report that we have not only met but exceeded our budgeted amount by $10,000 This is a truly
phenomenal achievement and I heartily thank and congratulate each and every congregant who donated. We should
be very proud.
In addition, we attained the largest percentage of donating members for the last several years. Can you imagine what
we could have raised if those who did not participate could have donated at least $36.00 - A Double Chai.
Be still my heart!
I am so very proud of our Temple membership and, of course, there are many people who have helped us reach this
goal. To the following, I offer my sincerest thanks:
To our intrepid phone squad callers:
Steven Widerman, Mark Goldman, Michael Heiberger, Marcia Schwalb, Cecile Fallon, Barbara Schenk, Howard Schneider,
Linda Braun, Peter Chiacchiaro, Lisa Tricomi and David Barton.
To Andy and Andrea Levenbaum for the use of the office phone bank at their business Levenbaum Associates for four
evenings this year and for many years past.
To Lisa Bennett and Irma Talbot who keep me up to date on all contributions and postings.
And finally, to you, the membership of Temple Beth El, who make this job a “Mitzvah in disguise”

B’nei Mitzvah
To Jack Breitstone (March 7th), Michelle Dori (March 21st),
Halle Greenwood (March 28th), Alexis Schoor (April11th),
Kloe Blumenthal (April 18th) and Remi Berlent (April 25th)
on becoming B'nei Mitzvah!
For her creative project, Kloe will create a photographic collage
of images she has taken of sunsets on her way to Hebrew
School. For her charity project, Kloe has chosen to make
cupcakes for birthday parties at homeless shelters.
Jack Breitstone – March 7th
We are so very proud of our son, Jack, on becoming
a Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth El. Jack enjoyed his studies at
TBE and we want to thank Lenny Thaw, Diane Berg and her
staff for helping Jack on this most important achievement.
As a new family to the community, we found a warm and
supportive home – particularly Rabbi Clopper who made us feel
welcomed and assured. Our experience of preparing for Jack
to become a Bar Mitzvah has been very meaningful for
our family.
The Bat Mitzvah experience means a great deal to our family.
Itʼs amazing when we realize that Kloe is becoming a young
adult. It seems like yesterday that our little blue-eyed daughter
was learning how to walk and talk. Now as she prepares
to become a Bat Mitzvah, we see how much she has grown.
She has taken on the vast responsibilities that becoming
a Bat Mitzvah involve with great determination. While it is no
easy task, with her projects and studying, along with all of her
outside duties, Kloe has made us very proud of the young adult
that she is becoming.
Jack is a bright, energetic and enthusiastic boy who is always
willing to help others and the world around him. Jack has
chosen the Little Shelter Animal Rescue in Huntington as
a focus for his Gʼmilut Chasadim. Helping those without
a voice was important to him. Jack has also collected items for
the local food pantries during the harsh winter months. For his
Tzedakah project, Jack chose to make a personal donation to
the Make a Wish Foundation for which he has also participated
in the Long Beach and Oyster Bay Polar Bear Swims.
Our wishes for Kloe as she enters adulthood are simple.
We hope that she shares and continues to lead a life that
includes the Jewish customs that she has learned from
Temple Beth El. We wish her happiness with whatever she
chooses to do in her life.
Remi Berlent – April 25th
We will continue to be amazed by our son as we watch him
mature into a confident and caring member of the Jewish
community and the world he lives in. It is an honor to be his
parents and share in his celebration today.
During her years at TBE, Remi has made a cultural, academic
and spiritual commitment to Judaism. Her Bat Mitzvah service
is a milestone we are so proud to see her reach; a milestone,
but not an ending. We love watching Remiʼs sense of Jewish
identity flourish along with her understanding of the need for
inclusivity. We are grateful for the encouragement, warmth,
and enthusiasm with which all of her teachers, Cantor Alison
and the very special Rabbi Clopper, taught her as they made
Temple Beth El a sanctuary – not just in the physical sense.
Michelle Dori – March 2st
Temple Beth El has been a very enriching experience for the
Dori family. When Michelle started Hebrew school four years
ago she was a little reluctant but with the excellent programs
and teachers she has become a well-educated and inspiring
young woman. She has enjoyed participating in the field trips
and extracurricular activities like the NYC Tenement Museum
and “Shul-in”.
Throughout her Bat Mitzvah year – and we hope into the future
– Remi has been working with “Grateful Greyhounds” and
Heifer International, the first for her Gʼmilat Chasadim
service project, the latter for her Tzedakah or charity
project. “Grateful Greyhounds” educates the public about
former racetrack greyhounds and sight hounds to promote the
adoption of these beautiful and gentle dogs as pets. Heifer
International empowers families to turn hunger and poverty into
hope and prosperity by linking communities and helping them
to bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with
a long history of poverty.
She has made an impressive commitment to learning her
blessings and will soon learn her Parsha. We are a blended
family and we are ecstatic over the progress that Michelle has
made.Our family has become a lot closer and this has raised
our expectations exponentially. We are forever grateful
to Rabbi Clopper, Diane Berg, Lenny Thaw, Risa Curiale and all
of TBE's teachers and staff past and present.
Created around her Haftorah portion, Remiʼs art project uses
multi-media to design and link Jewish stars of different sizes,
textures and colors into a visual reminder that all Jews are
bound by the covenant of the Torah to treat others as we would
want to be treated.
We are now looking forward to a future filled with many positive
relationships and Jewish values. L'chaim.
Mazal Tov to Remi and to all of the children becoming
B'nei Mitzvah this year and congratulations to their parents.
Kloe Blumenthal – April 18th
Temple Beth El is a special place to us because of all the
amazing opportunities that it offers. The people at TBE, from
Rabbi Clopper to the office staff and everyone in between, have
all been so helpful to our family over the years. Our children
have benefited from the caring and skilled people who have
taught them about what it means to be Jewish.
