College Connection
During their years in college or military service, Shir Shalom wants to make sure that we stay connected
to our young adults so that they know that if they ever need anything, we’re here for them. We like to
send them little gifts, holiday packages, emails, and invitations to meals and other Temple events. To
make sure we can do this, we need your help. Please send the following information for your student or
military personnel to [email protected] so that we can be in touch: first name, last name, college/
branch of military, school mailing address, city, state, zip, email, cell phone number, expected month
and year of graduation.

What are you gonna do?
Refocus. Renew.
MICHAEL L. MOSKOWITZ
Rabbi
With high school and college graduations completed, so are the opportunities to sift through the
commencement addresses shared and the platitudes extolled. I love these speeches. Quite possibly it’s the
messages shared that set a tone for such an idyllic time of year. With long evenings,
flowers in bloom, children enjoying camp, warm jackets and wool sweaters stored
safely in our closets, and the sun shining brightly, so can our perspective adjust,
refocus even.
Interesting what theme this year seemed pervasive in many graduation remarks.
The New York Times sifted through the best of them and found that from First Lady
Michelle Obama to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg to Speaker of the House Paul
Ryan the recurring message was that times are tough but you actually can make it.
Interesting reality check. But in reading many of these inspiring talks, what so many
kept returning to was the blessing of time – so much that stood before them that truly
anything was possible, but so much that it could be easy to let it slip by so quickly.
And that’s just what time will do.
Summer gives us that very same challenge, and yes, that very same blessing. How often are we overwhelmed
at how quickly time has passed, another year has transpired. In the proverbial blink of our eyes, the calendar
flips and suddenly we find ourselves looking at the new year.
Judaism affords us the opportunity to pause and notice, to recognize that time is our gift, and we need to embrace it as such. On some level, the ancients understood human nature and tendency, that we so often squander
this natural commodity and neglect the inherent blessing right before us. So we have Shabbat to pause and say,
another week has passed and another week sits before me. What was good? What could I do more of? What
has made me smile? How will I spend my days even more engaged next week? What will be the blessings
waiting for me? What is it for which I hope?
Rabbi Telushkin taught in his book Jewish Wisdom a reality that rings true for us all – and something so many
might find themselves thinking. Occasionally, we might be given the gift of a few extra minutes or even more.
But don’t catch yourself saying that you have some “time to kill,” for he teaches, “we don’t kill time. Time
kills us.” Without a doubt, it sounds severe, but we know it to be true. Time is our gift. Our blessing. Now
relish it and make it such.
So what do you want to do in these two special months of summer? Complain that another week just evaporated? Or find another book to read that has been waiting. Spend some moments with a friend, a family member
you haven’t been able to see due to the busyness of the year, enjoy an outdoor service on a Friday night, find
the blessing in the simplicity of a sunset, a full moon, a singing bird. Whatever it is, know that it’s a gift you’ve
been given. Your simple chance to refresh and to renew.
From the desk of . . .
ANDRE DOUVILLE
Executive Director
The beginning of our fiscal year is July 1 and, in the past month, everyone has received their dues statements
from Temple. There are two incredibly important realities that we cannot stress enough. First, when we pay
our dues promptly it helps tremendously. Our yearly budget is based on the expectation and understanding
of these monies being paid, and when we are unsure of what to expect, it makes the
daily running of Temple more of a challenge. Second, please know that we want to
work with you if there is difficulty in paying your dues.
We are a community, first and foremost. And our mission always must be that we
take care of each other. How much the more so when there are needs that you have.
Of course, that is exactly what our dues accomplish: they help us help people – from
our programming to our children to our religious services to our lifelong learning
opportunities. For those who already have contributed their dues, we thank you. For
those who have decided to help even more by joining our Tzedakah Circle, our Chai
donors, or Vatikim, know that you have made possible services to our families that
might otherwise not been available. And if you would like to help more and be part
of our Chai donors (those members that give above and beyond their regular dues amount), all you have to do
is give me a call. Thanks to so many for your help and understanding, and for doing tzedakah in such a special
and meaningful way. Please know how much it is appreciated by all of us at Temple.
This past May we celebrated the eleventh anniversary of the Walk for Israel. Each year your temple, Shir
Shalom, has hosted the Walk and, for the past four years, has also hosted the Run for Israel, a 5K Family
Fun Run. We added another event this year: the Roll for Israel, a family bicycle ride through the tranquil
streets of Oak Park and Huntington Woods. Each year the Walk has grown in popularity, culminating with
over 40 cosponsors and corporate sponsors. Even with brief snow squalls and the threat of rain, close to two
thousand people gathered to celebrate Israel. Senator Gary Peters and Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence were
among the many dignitaries that joined us. It’s an amazing vision to see a line of people more than a mile
long walking together to support Israel. I hope you can join us next year on Sunday, May 7, 2017, as we begin
another decade.
Food, Fun & Fireworks is around the corner. Our annual Food, Fun and Fireworks is Monday, August 15.
It’s an event that you don’t want to miss! Local restaurants share their finest creations for you to sample. Each
year we bring in new restaurants to complement the outstanding ones from years past. Come hungry and ready
for fun! We have games, face painting, bouncies, train rides and more for your little ones. Enjoy wonderful
music while you gather outside at a table with your friends and family. Make sure to save room for the ice
cream truck that is stocked with goodies before the big fireworks show. Bring a blanket or lounge chair and
sit back and enjoy the spectacular fireworks show generously donated by Lili and Les Gold. It’s a night to
remember and always a great time. Tickets are $25 per adult and $12 per child 5-12; children under 5 are free!
Call the Temple office at 248-737-8700 to buy your tickets today or visit our website (www.shirshalom.org)
where you can buy your tickets via PayPal. We can’t wait to see you; it’s a time-honored tradition at Temple
you don’t want to miss!
Shoresh
SARAH ALLYN
Associate Director
Not to be insecure, but we aren’t feeling the love over here at SHORESH during these summer months. We
know, we know, it’s not us—it’s you. You just have a lot going on. You’re not sure if you have time right
now for a SHORESH relationship. Just for a moment, we are going to be the Jewish mother you already
have and throw a little guilt your way. We’re here all summer. We’d love to see
you or, at the very least, hear from you!
Let’s get the nasty business of paperwork out of the way. Most of you—yes,
probably you—owe us some paperwork. You should have received your
SHORESH Registration Packet in the mail in June (unless you stopped by Early
Registration. Special shout out to those of you who have already turned yours in!)
All registration paperwork, preschool-12th grade, is due no later than August
1. After that date we are unable to honor friend requests. Machonikim applications
for students in 7th-12th grade are also due by August 1. Please, please help us out
by submitting your paperwork on time. Give us a call at 248-406-4255 if you have
any questions.
On to the fun stuff…
We have a few summertime events not to be missed. Two by Two at the Zoo, our annual get-together at the
Detroit Zoo is on Wednesday, August 17. This program is geared toward families with early childhood and
early elementary age students but all are welcome. Look for more information and a link to RSVP in your
inbox. Have you purchased your tickets for Food, Fun and Fireworks? I personally go for the food. Maybe
you’re in it for the fireworks. Regardless, the ‘Fun’ is for all! Call Temple to purchase your tickets today
and hold the date: Monday, August 15.
Before I let you get back to your fun-filled summer schedule, I’d like to take a moment to highlight our
Shir Shalom preschool, The Learning Center. Don’t skip over this paragraph just because you don’t have
preschool age kids. What we’re doing with our early childhood program is so amazing, you need to know
about it! Marsha Mitnick, our director, along with our amazing staff are currently running the best early
learning program in the area. If you need proof, just check out their new website:
www.shirshalompreschool.com. Make sure to click on the ‘Garden’ tab to see the wonder that is the TLC
Garden (planted, cared-for and harvested by our children.) It’s truly amazing. Do your part to spread the
word. If you know families with children 0-5, point them in our direction. They’ll thank you for it.
Enjoy the rest of your summer. We’ll see you in (hopefully before) September!
The Learning Center
Marsha Mitnick
Early Childhood Learning Director
Ask any parent of young children if they expected the role of being a parent to be easy and my guess is the initial
response might be: “Yes!” “Wait I mean NO!” or “”I had no idea!” In my mind I can’t think of a more stressful,
serious, fulfilling, heartwarming, demanding, emotional, and loving job. All that job description and no manual to get
you through it. Being a parent is the hardest job to be blessed with.
In Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg’s new book, Nurture the Wow, she refers to Rabbi Heschel’s
concept of radical amazement as the “WOW” about the world around us. This sense of
amazement – as if seeing something for the first time, like a baby taking their first steps
or standing in the middle of a garden holding your breath as the butterfly lands on your
arm – creates both a physical and emotional response. This sense of awe, or wow, or being
present, is a constant state for the young child. Rabbi Ruttenberg brilliantly suggests in
her book that kids are the masters at this state-of-mind and we as adults need to learn from
them as we parent.
My role as the director of The Learning Center has provided countless opportunities to
be an active participant in this process of “WOW”. When parents come for a tour of The
Learning Center and meet me for the first time it is important that I hear and see everything they are saying…and listen
to what they are not saying.
Ultimately, it is the parents in a child’s life that will foster the sense of awe or minimize it. For some parents it is
intuitive, for most it is not. They may not even know what the “WOW” is or the questions to ask. If you are one of the
latter, that is OK. If you would like to learn more, please come and ask me.
Beginning in the fall I will be starting a new class. Some call it Parent Toddler. I call it Play and Stay. There is a
uniqueness to this program. Parents and children will have the opportunity to play and engage in purposeful activities
that address the young child’s development and their Jewish identity. Each session will run for six weeks. On the sixth
week, Rabbi Moskowitz and I will meet with parents while your children play in the same room.
Enrollment is open. The fee is $50.00 for six weeks. It is open to all. The first session begins Thursday, July 7th.

“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. ....get up in the morning
and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is
phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to
be amazed.”
Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

Ethan Jacob Kopel,
son of Christine and Mark Kopel, will become a bar mitzvah at the Friday evening Shabbat service on
August 13, 2016. He is the grandson of the late Joanne and the late Walter Winiarski and the late Thelma and
the late Martin Kopel. Ethan is a student at Novi Middle School. He enjoys playing in chess tournaments,
running track and cross country and spending time with his friends. Ethan enjoyed spending time with his
tutor Mrs. Zacks and Cantor Penny because they made learning how to chant a fun experience. Ethan is
looking forward to continuing his involvement in the Jewish community by volunteering at SHORESH so he
can be a mentor to younger kids.
Sarah Hammel Scheck,
daughter of Melissa and Richard Scheck, will become a bat mitzvah at the Saturday morning Shabbat service
on August 27, 2016. She is the granddaughter of Leonard Scheck and the late Elizabeth Flapan and Christina
and Paul Rakoczy. Sarah is a student at Larson Middle School. In her free time Sarah is an active ballet
dancer. One of her most memorable Jewish experiences was teaching in the pre-kindergarten classroom at
SHORESH this year. To Sarah, becoming a bat mitzvah means participating in the Jewish community by
being involved in Tikkun Olam activities and celebrating holidays.

A loss within our community is a loss no matter where it occurs, and we wish to
extend our support and sympathy during this difficult time. Many of our
members have asked to be informed about a death in our congregational family
in a more timely fashion than the bimonthly publication in our Scribe.

What’s on My Mind?
From the President: Joshua Sherbin
How do you think of time passing? Some think in terms of
calendar years (whether Gregorian or Jewish), some forever
think in terms of school years (as in the year ends in June
when I still should be going away to camp for at least 4
weeks), some ponder the completion of each fiscal year
(which happens to be the end of June at Temple) and others
have perfected the art of losing track of time.
For me, as I have already let slip, the year ends with the
completion of another school year. Instead of me heading off
to camp for a memorable summer, it was replaced long ago
by our kids doing the same. Many years of Jewish summer
camp experience for each of our three kids appears to be as powerful for them as it was
for me in nurturing Jewish values and identity.
So, back to the passage of time. As my first year as Temple president concludes on June
30, I am grateful for the support over the past year of our rabbis, staff, my fellow board
members – and each of you.
Now, I’m looking forward to what year two will bring.

We’ll start the year with addition of three new Board members (as I write this, I know the
final vote tally is still to be counted, but I’m pretty confident) who bring extraordinary
skills and enthusiasm as trustees: Barry Levine, Michelle Bayer and Eric Tilds. If joining
the Temple Board at some point in the future tempts you, I’d love to talk to you about it.

We’ll also start the year with a brand new parking lot. While July will be inconvenient
and dusty, the payback will be safety and convenience that we’ll enjoy for the next 20
years or so.

Two of my favorite Temple activities are also front loaded at the start of our new Temple
year – summer meditation services and Food Fun & Fireworks. Friday night services
outside with a lighter touch by Rabbis Mike and Daniel is a great way to celebrate
Shabbat and unwind at the end of a long week. Then, on August 15, we host our 12th
Food Fun & Fireworks - a great evening that welcomes all ages in the community to
Temple and nobody goes home hungry. A heartfelt thanks to Katie Brown for chairing
this event. If you are interested in helping make Food Fun & Fireworks a success, please
contact our Temple executive director, Andre Douville, at [email protected]
So once the fun of summer starts to wane, what’s next in my second year? Soon, we will
kick off our new hardcover prayer book beautifully illustrated by Temple member Lori
Blume. By Chanukah 2016, expect the new prayer book to be in your hands and look for
opportunities this year to support Temple through dedication of a prayer book.
In response to your survey feedback and thanks to an enthusiastic founding group, look
for the Women of Shir Shalom to come together during my second year.
What would you like to see happen at Temple over the next 12 months? Let me know at
