Questions
Bertrand Russell once said: “In all
affairs, it’s a healthy thing now and
then to hang a question mark on
the things you have long taken for
granted.”
For us who embrace the rhythm
of Jewish life, these two months are
all about hanging question marks
on what we take for granted in life.
Jewish tradition returns us each
year to the month of Elul and the
celebration of the High Holy Days,
occasions that invite us to look deep
within and ask ourselves life’s most
important questions.
What am I doing with my life?
How am I choosing to use the
extraordinary gifts of time and
talent that have been afforded me?
Am I living in a way that honors
the sacrifice of those upon whose
shoulders I stand? Am I giving
enough of myself to my loved-ones,
BY RABBI DAN LEVIN
[email protected]
my daughter to love the richness
of her own spirit? Am I doing
enough to help her find her path?
Am I sharing with her enough time,
enough wisdom, enough love? Am I
guiding her to appreciate the value
of the extraordinary depth and
wisdom of her people, her tradition,
and her heritage? Am I modeling for
her what goodness looks like? Am
I listening well enough to what she
has to say, and to what she is trying
to say without words?
During this past summer, I began a
three-year journey as a student with
the Rabbinic Leadership Initiative at
the Shalom Hartman Institute. This
wonderful opportunity brought me
to Jerusalem for 25 days of intensive
study with an extraordinary group of
rabbinic colleagues from across the
Jewish spectrum. It was exhilarating
and refreshing - a chance to marinate
What am I doing with my life? How am I choosing to
use the extraordinary gifts of time and talent that have
been afforded me? Am I living in a way that honors
the sacrifice of those upon whose shoulders I stand?
Am I giving enough of myself to my loved-ones, to my
community, to my people, to my country, to humanity?
Am I reserving enough of myself for myself?
to my community, to my people,
to my country, to humanity? Am
I reserving enough of myself for
myself?
These questions animate me more
profoundly as our family prepares
to celebrate Bat Mitzvah for our
youngest daughter. I find myself
returning again and again to these
questions and others.
Am I a good father? Am I helping
my spirit in Jewish text and Jewish
wisdom.
Jewish tradition gives us
time each week for that kind of
introspection and reflection - Shabbat.
Shabbat is a time to step back from
the pursuit of life and to consider what
it is we have chosen to pursue.
Jewish tradition gives us time
each year for that kind of
introspection and reflection. The
celebration of the High Holy Days
asks each of us to take an accounting
of our lives and to look very carefully
at what we have chosen to write on
our page in the Book of Life.
Jewish tradition gives us time
in our life-cycle for that kind of
introspection and reflection. The
celebration of our children’s coming
of age demands that we stand in
awe and wonder at the growth of
the spirit, to marvel at the web of
relationship that connects us all
as family, friends, community, and
Peoplehood, and to consider how
each of us is using the gift of life.
As I enter into this sacred time
in the year and in my life, I find
myself filled with trepidation and
gratitude - trepidation as I confront
these monumental questions, and
gratitude that I have the wisdom of
our tradition and the company of
family and community as I journey
toward the answers.
Blessed are You, Adonai our God,
Ruling Spirit of the Universe, Who
has given us life, sustained us, and
enabled us to reach this holy season.

A MESSAGE FROM BARRY PODOLSKY
Thoughts for the New Year
Temple Beth El President
Barry Podolsky
[email protected]
954-326-2180
Most of the world considers January first
the beginning of the new year. We make
resolutions (generally about losing weight,)
but it’s more of a commercial experience
with parties and fireworks. For Jews,
the new year begins with the celebration
of Rosh HaShanah. Friends and family
gather to attend services and celebrate with
traditional foods (feather light matzo balls
in my house.) We then enter 10 days of
introspection, culminating with a fast on the
Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur.)
I’d like to focus on those 10 days of
introspection. Most of us don’t withdraw
from daily life so it’s easy to pass the 10
days and not do much contemplation. But
I want to encourage each of you to make
time during this period for the following:
CONSIDER YOUR RELATIONSHIPS. Do you want new
ones? How can you enhance your existing ones?
THINK ABOUT WHAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO YOU.
Are you spending enough time doing the things you
believe are really important?
SET GOALS. To increase the likelihood of success,
write them down (or add them to your “reminders”
on your smartphone.) Mark your calendar each of
the next 12 months with the words “Goal Check” so
you can celebrate your success or double-down on
your efforts.
I’m offering these words because I think you
will find the Temple can be a big source in helping
you accomplish your goals. Consider our existing
programs, but also let us know if we’re missing
something you want in your life. Don’t be hesitant –
it’s YOUR Temple! Give me a call. We can talk over
lunch.
Susan and I wish you a year of calm, a year of
meaning and a year filled with joy and happiness.
May God bless us with health to do His work.
WELCOME

Dana and Phillip Pina
Eric is a successful
businessman, and very
creative thinker. He will share
his thoughts about how his
creative approach has guided
his life as a businessman,
husband, father, and son.
No child should have to deal
with a debilitating, lifethreatening illness. But 18
year-old Avery has shown
incredible resilience and a
powerful will to live that has
brought her back from a
double lung transplant. She
will share her experience in
"her journey to breathe."
As Temple Beth El’s Shlicha,
Israel Emissary, Lotem acts
as a conduit between Israeli
and American Jews. Hear
what she has learned this
past year in America, and
how she plans to strengthen
the feelings of connection
between Jews in Israel and
America.
Coming from two different
Christian backgrounds, Dana
and Phillip chose Judaism for
their lives and their children.
They will share their journey
to Judaism and how they
continue to find their place
in Jewish tradition and
community.

COMMITTEE
SPOTLIGHT
The Religious
Committee (RAC)
In each issue of The Chronicle,
we highlight one of our Temple
Beth El committees and the very
important work they do.
Activities
strives to make
religious and ritual life at Temple Beth El
more meaningful and more enjoyable for
all. They work closely with clergy to provide
input and feedback on everything from
High Holy Days to Shabbat services to the
WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT
YOUR COMMITTEE?
We tend to attend Friday night services
regularly (although this is not a requirement
for committee membership!) So we see each
other a lot! We spend a lot of time with the
clergy and get to know them very well. We
also enjoy studying together to better
understand how we can best interpret
and apply tradition.
ONE ACCOMPLISHMENT
YOU’RE PROUD OF?
We were asked to trial and advise on
the new High Holy Day prayer books at
an early time in their development. We
attended a mock Kol Nidre service after
which we all had a bite to eat! How often
do you get to do that? We were proud to
see the final rollout of the beautiful new
prayer books, which we as a congregation
had helped create.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES
FOR THE FUTURE?
Rabbi Greg Weisman, Dr. David Morse,
Lucille Geller, Lisa Glass, Susan Sosin,
Cantor Lori Shapiro
selection of our prayer books. We spoke to
Dr. David Morse, VP of Religious Activities
on our Board of Trustees, and we just want
to say THANK YOU! We couldn’t be Temple
Beth El without you!
WHAT DOES YOUR COMMITTEE DO?
First, we are an advisory body to the clergy.
We help them build on and improve our
outstanding Shabbat and festival services.
We advise the clergy and the Board when
they make significant decisions pertaining to
the religious life of the Temple. Second, we
develop and participate in a broad spectrum
of programming to improve the spiritual life
of our congregation and our community.

THE CHRONICLE

tbeboca.org
Although we are justifiably proud of our
regular Shabbat and festival services, we
recognize that not all Temple members
have the time, opportunity or interest to
attend. The Temple, however, must still
be present for our entire congregation.
Our vision moving forward is to provide
alternatives in location, programming and
connection to others, that allow our members
to find spirituality in whichever way works best
for them.
The Religious
Activities Committee
is looking for additional committee
members! If you would like to find out more,
please contact the clergy office at 561-3918900, and join the first meeting of the year
on Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 7:30pm

Introduction to Judaism
Wednesdays, November 2, 2016-March 8, 2017
7:00-8:30pm
Schaefer Family Campus
Temple Beth El is pleased to offer a weekly course taught by the clergy and
other experts in the community. The course covers topics such as holidays,
customs, life-cycle events, values, theology, prayers and rituals, Jewish texts,
history, and Hebrew. There
is an expectation that one
will complete weekly reading
assignments. At the end
of the course, there will
be a comprehensive short
answer review given to
those individuals who are
pursuing conversion. Often,
a Jewish partner, friend, or
family member will choose to
accompany the prospective
convert to the classes. This
class is also useful for nonJews who do not intend to
convert but are interested in learning more about Judaism, or for people who
were born and raised as Jews but feel as though they never received a solid
Jewish education. All are welcome.

PreNatal Seminar
The Beth El Early Learning Center is busier than ever.
Our classrooms are full, and due to the increased
demand we added an additional two-year-old classroom,
making a total of four. With much anticipation, our
Splash Pad opened this summer (see page 21 for
pictures.) The children have enjoyed it so much; we
have decided it will remain a part of our outdoor play as
long as the weather permits.
Thanks to our amazing Parenthood Organization, our
Book Fair last year was a huge success. Many new
books were ordered to enhance our library and two new
Listening Centers were purchased. Our parents began
planning a full calendar of events over the summer,
in hopes of creating the most engaging opportunities
possible, and included some morning meetings for this
year. Girls Night Out, Guys Night and family excursions
are planned. Please check the Parenthood page at
tbeboca.org/early-learning-center for the full schedule
of events.
We are looking forward to an exciting year!

Temple Beth El, will present a prenatal
seminar, touching on issues of baby
care, feeding, CPR, and postnatal
support. This event, which is aimed at
parents in the latter half of pregnancy,

RELIGIOUS SCHOOL GOALS
One of the things I love about summer is that I get to catch up
on articles and books which I gather throughout the school
year. It is also a time to think about priorities in our religious
school, and how we can create the best possible program for
our children, teens and families.
An article I read and reread this summer addressed these
exact points. In Dr. Rob Weinberg’s “The Unique Place of
Congregational Education in the Lives of Children, Teens
and Families,” five distinctive positive characteristics of
congregational education are delineated. As
we were planning for our year, our education
team incorporated these strategies into the
curriculum.
COMMUNITY-EMBEDDEDNESS. In every Religious
School lesson plan, our teachers are required
to have a community building activity. This is
the third year we have this as an essential part
of our class time. We will also continue to send
our class lists in the first sixty days of school
so parents and students have easy access to
connect with each other.
SIGNIFICANT OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS THE WHOLE PERSON.
One of our goals is to ensure that the experiences of our children
relates to and accounts for their lives outside of Religious School.
We make every effort to view the whole child and give our
students tools to take what happens in our rooms and see how it
relates to their life.
FLEXIBILITY AND FREEDOM TO EXPERIMENT. This year
includes a number of innovations. We will be piloting
Hebrew Through Movement with kindergarten through
INTERGENERATIONAL AND FAMILY LEARNING.
Tami Weisman will be coordinating our Family
Education Days this year. Tami is looking
forward to enriching our families’ experiences
and at the same time allowing time for families to get to
know each other.
CONTINUITY AND REGULARITY. This year, we are most
fortunate that we have a month of Religious School prior to
the High Holy Days. This does not often happen. Our classes
will be able to expose children to the High Holy Days not as an
afterthought but as a way of preparation.
Education Team
BOFTY banquet
second grade at Beck Family Campus, which exposes
students to Hebrew as a spoken language prior to teaching
them to read. Our Religious School and Youth Engagement
Programs will be much more integrated; Amanda Charson
will supervise both for children in kindergarten through
grade six, and Jules Wolfberg for grade seven through
twelve. Our incoming ninth grade will be the first class
in our new Sababa High! This class will be
experiencing a new curriculum and new outof-classroom experiences with an emphasis on
community.
We are most excited for the 2016-17 year and the
many special learning experiences we have planned.
We look forward to seeing you soon and often as
together we build our Jewish future.

MITZVAH PROJECT
LANCE
KAUFMAN
For my mitzvah project, I decided to volunteer at The Humane Society Mountain Shelter
in Blairsville, Georgia, near where I have spent most of my summer vacation. This no kill
animal shelter is a temporary home to many dogs and cats in that area. My family and I have
volunteered for more than 30 hours, walking the dogs and playing with cats. We also socialized
with the animals and gave them the extra attention they needed to feel loved. Each time I left
the shelter, I felt like I had made a difference in those animals’ lives. This experience as a whole
has made me more compassionate about animals in need of a loving family. My Torah portion,
Ki Teitzei is mainly about treating animals with kindness and respect. When I read my Torah
portion and discovered its meaning, I wanted to work with animals as my mitzvah project.

What is URJ Kutz Camp? Well, this past month
myself and two other BOFTY board participants
(Zoe Brand and Daniel Shapiro) spent an
incredible Jewish learning experience there.
Kutz Camp is a four-week long summer camp
housed in Warwick, New York dedicated to Jewish
learning and fun. We learned things from how to
be a Jewish leader to Israeli dancing. A typical
day at Kutz went like this: breakfast, morning
services, majors, lunch/minors, learning labs,
chuggim (electives), free time, dinner, evening
program, laila tov. During the first week we all got
to pick our majors and minors. You could choose
from six different majors: song leading, creative
arts, mitzvah corps, torah corps, leadership and
social action. I chose creative arts as my major
and Israeli Culture/Hebrew 101 (conversational
Hebrew) as my minor. In creative arts, I learned
how to connect Jewish text to art. In Israeli

our Sunday Morning Chat and Nosh at Too Jays. But now we get into the heart of our

our Annual Brotherhood Golf Tournament. This year we honor Craig Donoff Esq., for

said Moses. “I did,” said G-d. “Who’s he going to tell?”

Ingredients
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups beef broth
