Kol Nidre First Service* Kol Nidre Second Service Thoughts Composed by
Rabbi Steven H. Rau, RJE
s we enter the ten days of introspection between Rosh Hashanah and
Yom Kippur, we not only have the opportunity to look inward personally, but also
to look inward as a congregation. We are
given the chance to examine how we act
as individuals and also how we act as a
community. It’s at this time of the year
that we take a step back and reflect on
how we welcome the new and the old
into our spiritual home and create a place
of comfort for all who enter.
Being a member of The Temple, where
above our front doors are etched Isaiah’s
message in Hebrew, “For My house shall
be called a house of prayer for all peoples,”
we innately believe in the importance
of hospitality and equality. Our Zaban
Couples Center reiterates our belief in
kindness to strangers as we welcome those in need into our home as one of our own. But many
of us may never have the opportunity to see how our congregation leads our movement and our
people in creating an inclusive community for all of its members.
Over the years, our educators and clergy have worked in partnership with Stacey Levy (a speech
pathologist and congregant) to create an inclusive learning environment for all of our members. In
our congregation we celebrate our differences and create ways to embrace all who seek a spiritual
or educational home. Walking through our classrooms on a Sunday morning, one would be taken
by the diversity of the students learning side-by-side. Students from multi-cultural backgrounds,
interfaith families, and different nationalities and socioeconomic backgrounds add to the beauty
of our sacred learning. Upon closer examination, one might find a student in a wheelchair, a child
being shadowed by a teenager to assist him in learning, or a highlighted Hebrew text to help a
student with a reading-based learning difference read Hebrew phonetically.
This month, our congregation will be blessed as Benjamin Faber is called to the Torah as bar
mitzvah on Friday night, October 28. He has been a student in our religious school since prekindergarten. Yet, Benjamin, who was born with Mitochondrial Myopathy, will not be chanting
the prayers at his bar mitzvah in the same manner as other students. When he recites the aliyah
(or blessing) before the reading of the Torah, it will be different than any other reading that most
of us have ever witnessed. The blessings upon the Torah and some of the service prayers will be

lease join the Temple Early Learning Center for a fabulous parent education program on October 19,
at 9:45 am. Life After Preschool will feature Barby Levy and Fontaine Draper of Education Connection.
This parent program will help parents learn how to choose the best educational environment for their child

Education Connection helps parents in Atlanta understand their children’s intellectual, academic,
emotional, and social needs and then matches these needs to appropriate educational environments.
The TELC is excited to partner with them to assist our families as they make informed decisions about
their child’s life after preschool. There is no cost to attend this program, but we request you please RSVP
by emailing [email protected] and let us know you'll be coming. You can learn more about Education
Connection at their website: www.educationconnection.us. <

Community Simcha
verbalized for Benjamin through assisted communication devices.
Standing by his side will be two of his classmates chanting his Torah
verses for him, and he will be surrounded by two hundred teens
from all over the region taking part in a youth group convention
weekend learning about the importance of inclusion.
When Benjamin first entered our school in 2002, his parents
Paula and Michael asked us to give him a normal religious school
experience. Each year, a new teenager (a role we called tzadikim
or righteous ones) assisted him weekly by pushing his wheelchair
through the halls to class or picking him up to be a part of circle
time or other group learning. Though he was based in his grade
level’s classroom, he would also take part in tefilah with other grades
because of his love of music. In addition to the experiences Benjamin
had with his peers in the classroom over the years, each one of the
students received something even more valuable and precious from
him. This month, as our teens and our congregation celebrate a young
adult’s sacred journey to Jewish adulthood, we will also celebrate our
congregation’s spiritual growth through all of the lives that Benjamin
has touched. We hope you, too, will join us on Friday night, October
28 at 7:30pm for this most wonderful simcha! <

itzvah Day is a congregation-wide community service day when
hundreds of Temple volunteers of all ages, with loving hands and
willing hearts, filled with the spirit of giving, will go out into the community

excused from class that day. In order to be excused from class, the participating family must complete a form.
You can go online to sign-up at www.the-temple.org/mitzvahday. If you
have any questions, please contact Ronnie van Gelder at 404.873.1731. Special thanks to our chairpersons: Cathy Kasriel, Linda Levy, Suzanne Rubini,

he day after Yom Kippur, we will need your help. All the food we've collected during the High Holy Days will need to be delivered and unloaded
from the truck, and that's where you come in. Help us unload and stack the
groceries on the shelves at the Midtown Assistance Center (MAC). To volunteer, please call Susan Banner at 404.848.0070 or Ronnie van Gelder at
404.873.1731 (ext 1142 after hours).
You can meet at The Temple at 2:00 pm that Sunday, when our carpool will
depart, or go directly to MAC. They are located at 30 Porter Place, Atlanta,
GA 30308. And remember, there's no Religious School that day, so make this
mitzvah a family affair! <

unger may seem abstract to most of us. After all, few of those who sit in our Temple pews suffer under the fear of going without food. Yet it is a major issue, locally and abroad. That is why
our congregation has made combating food insecurity such a major priority for so many years. We'll
continue that effort during a Global Hunger Shabbat the first Friday in November.
Ruth Messinger, president of American Jewish World Service, will deliver the sermon at our
6:00 pm worship service. Afterwards, we will host dinner options for families, teens, and adults. At each meal, we'll
explore together in group learning around the issue of hunger around the world. Those who attend will come away with
a deeper understanding of how people, in a world full of wealth, can still live without adequate food.
Sponsored by Open Jewish Project, we encourage you to make this meaningful Shabbat experience the first thing
on your calendar for November. But we need you to register by the end of October so we can adequately plan for the
meals and logistics. Go online to www.the-temple.org/globalhunger to register and get more details. If you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rabbi Rachael Bregman at [email protected] or 404.873.1731. <
Family Dinner - 6:45 pm
Adult Dinner - 7:30 pm
Teen Dinner - 7:30 pm
Immediately following the YoFI Service, this
family dinner will have activities to help us and
our children better understand global hunger.
In contrast to a Thanksgiving meal, we will share
some lighter fare as we consider sustainable
agriculture, food justice and our obligations.
Teens will explore the world's food supply and
consider our place in the global marketplace
and learn what teens can do to respond.
