Rabbis Message
Let All Who are Hungry Come and Eat!
The Catskills comedian Freddie Roman observed: "Did you ever notice that the
Holidays are either early or late? JEWS ARE NEVER ON TIME!" True enough, I
guess. This year Passover is particularly early, as things go, with the first Seder
night on Monday, March 25th. Also this year, on Tuesday, March 26th, we at Union
Temple will gather for the first time for a Second Night Seder, for us, our families
and friends, and those in the community who wish to join us. It should be a wonder-
ful gathering. You will be hearing more about it from the conveners.
Early or late, the essence of Passover remains the same: to remind us of where we
came from, and of our responsibilities as Jews in the world. Out of the bitterness of
slavery, and our experience of oppression and degradation, we learn to promote the
values of freedom and respect for human dignity, and to help those who are bowed
down; to unlock the chains of poverty, and to cast a light into the darkness of ignorance and hatred. We learn
to help those who are in need.
In this spirit, I appeal to you now as I do each year, on behalf of my colleagues at the New York Board of Rab-
bis. Each year the NYBR conducts a Passover Appeal, in concert with the Metropolitan Council on Jewish
Poverty, in order to buy Passover food and supplies for thousands of our Jewish sisters and brothers in the
New York Metropolitan area who are alone or institutionalized, in want, and in need. This year, in the ongoing
aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the need is even greater. This appeal is based on the long-standing tradition of
maot chittin. Historically, the elders of the community would go around collecting for a fund to buy wheat to
bake matzah. The rules of the fund were simple: those who needed it took from it; those who did not need it,
gave to it. Each year as a congregation, along with our sister congregations all over New York, we at Union
Temple have continued this tradition of maot chittin by responding to this appeal with overwhelming kind-
ness and generosity. I hope that this year will be no exception.
As we have done each year, we ask you to make out a check, for whatever amount you are comfortable with,
to Union Temple, and earmark it Passover Appeal. Send it to the Union Temple Office at 17 Eastern
Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11238. You may also contribute online at http://www.nycharities.org/donate/
c_donate.asp?CharityCode=3473 , and scroll to Passover Appeal. We then will send a collective check to
the NYBR from our congregation. I am proud to be associated with the NYBR, particularly because of the
chesed - compassion - embodied by this annual appeal, and carried out by the chaplains of the NYBR all year
round. All of us offer our profound thanks for your kind participation in this appeal, and thus the fulfillment
of the mitzvot of tzedakah - and gemilut chasadim - charity and acts of loving kindness - so integral a part of
our Passover celebration.
From Stephen, Philip and myself, and of course from our entire congregational family, a Ziessen Pesach to
all!
-Rabbi Linda Henry Goodman

Officers Column
We Just Have to Ask
Just ask?
New Yorkers Brooklynites especially are not known for their shyness. We don't hesitate to ask, often de-
mand, what we want.
Members of the Union Temple community are no exception. Except when it comes to money.
Happily, we run many programs now. Films ... Friday and Saturday Shabbats for the toddler community ... au-
thor presentations ... guest lectures ... the list goes on. Most often, these events are free. They're not limited to
members. We don't at all hesitate to welcome everyone. I'm sure you would say, as I do, that's the way it
should be.
But we hesitate to ask for the
money it costs to bring each of
these fabulous events to life.
We generally underestimate the
generosity of people like you and
me, don't you think? We forget
that it actually makes you feel
good to know you've helped. If
we just reminded everyone
members, their friends, guests
who stop by because they've seen
an ad or flyer that we would be
truly thankful for a donation,
wouldn't you agree that all of you
would gladly give?
So take this as your first re-
minder, please. Rabbi would be
extremely grateful for your sup-
port of the Passover Appeal this
month. Jews less fortunate than
you and me are relying on us. As
for next month and the months
after, who knows what other
good deeds your philanthropic
side will lead you to?
Thank you so much. Truly.
-Ellen D. Kolikoff,
Vice President

Thinking Out of the Shabbox
After months of preparation, on February 2
nd
, we launched our newest family program, Out of the Shab-
box. Out of the Shabbox draws on the innovative and energetic talents of three Jewish artists and educators,
Shawn Shafner (storytelling), Julie Gayer Kris (movement) and Jay Rapoport (music) to explore a variety of
themes and values with young children through biblical and other stories, song, and text based move-
ment. Three Saturdays a month from February through June, children up to six years old will gather with their
parents in the Preschool big room to dance, sing, and tell stories based on a carefully selected monthly
theme. In February we explored peace; and next month, we will explore charity and acts of loving kind-
ness. We will conclude in June with the fundamental tenet of Jewish life, Tikkun Olam, repairing the
world. Particularly given recent events, each of the monthly themes is relevant and timely. The program con-
tent is designed to encourage the children to actively participate so that they can fully explore these important
values while still having fun.
At our launch, children danced and gathered with our performers to act out the well known story It could
have been worse. The story is about a family who lives in a small apartment and go to their Rabbi for
help. The Rabbi says invite your ex-
tended family to stay with them in the
apartment. Confused, the family fol-
lows the Rabbis advice but is even
more unhappy. When they return to the
Rabbi, complaining even more about
how small the apartment is, the Rabbi
sends them to invite animals to stay
with them. Naturally, they again follow
the Rabbis advice, but are back at her
doorstep still complaining. Finally, after
a lengthy stay, the Rabbi finally tells the
family to send everyone home, at which
point they realize how spacious their
apartment is, and how it could have
been worse. The children acted out
the story with the Shawn, Jay and Julie,
all playing different characters; some
were the family, others were members
of the extended family, and some were
the cats and dogs and other animals who
had temporarily moved in. It was clear
from watching the kids that they were
having a great time, and were fully en-
gaged in the story.
Future programs will generally have two
artists, who will continue to interweave
storytelling with dance and movement to
create a dynamic and vibrant morning
program for young Brooklyn fami-
lies. All in all, the February 2
nd
launch
was a great success, and families were
thrilled with the program content.

Preschool
Color them Happy with the Snow
Our preschoolers are very excited about winter and snow. For many of them its the first time they have seen
snow or been old enough to play in it. Classroom themes have ranged from winter and snow, to colors, letters,
transportation and dinosaurs.
In the Chickadees, Montana Vazquez-Grinnells twos class, the children continue to grow and flourish. Each day
we are seeing them discover a little more about each other and themselves. The children have really started to in-
teract, create games, and play together. A favored game during Big Room is setting up all the chairs to make a
train, bus, or theater and quickly the whole class becomes involved! They have been talking a lot about winter and
snow, as well as Dinosaurs which is something completely driven by the group's interest.
The Robins class, Tomomi Iwamotos three class, is studying colors. They started with primary colors last week
and are onto secondary colors. They have been playing a game where the children all have to search around the
room to find one thing that is the color of the day and bring it to the rug. They then gather around the items and
look at them and count them. After studying primary colors they moved on to secondary colors. The children
did a special project where they dropped blue and yellow ice cubes in water to see what would happen. The Rob-
ins were fascinated to see the colors mix gradually together.
The Sparrows, Natalie Roths threes class, are working hard on their letters and are spontaneously adding letters
to their art work. They continue to read different versions of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (both the letter and
number versions) and to discuss how each is different. They will be starting a new unit all about me". The kids
are growing and developing a greater sense of self-awareness. They have been saying their full names at morn-
ing meeting and talking a lot about birthdays. In the coming weeks they will be creating "all about me" books
which will help the children to think about who they are in their family and what their interests are.
The Puffins, Catie Blake Vignonas fours class, has been busy learning about dinosaurs and of course making
lots of fun dinosaur art. They have been singing "Oh where oh where have the dinosaurs gone..." This is a unit
that resonates with all of children. It has also given them an opportunity to explore a variety of art materials.
They made "fossils" with shells and little dinosaurs that they pressed into model magic, dinosaur skeletons using
pasta as the bones and sand as dirt, a big dinosaur collage as a class, and compared their footprints to one the size
of a dinosaur's. The Puffins also worked together to make a huge dinosaur mural using oil pastels and different
textured paper.
The Hummingbirds, Pam Apples fours class, has been working on a transportation unit. They have painted
with car wheels using foam paint and regular paint, and they have made their own driver's licenses. They are
currently working on creating their own
original vehicle from cardboard boxes.
Each child is making a different vehicle.
Among the vehicles the Hummingbirds
have thus far created are a police car, fire
truck, ambulance, airplane, car and train.
This is a very time consuming project.
All of the children are trying to include
lots of details on their vehicles.
Please contact us if you are interested in
applying to our summer program which
runs June 17th through August 2nd.

Brotherhood
March in with a Good Book
What better way to warm up during these cold winter months than with a good
book, good friends and good food? Well on Sunday, March 3rd at 10 AM
youre going to have the chance when Brotherhood President Steven Segall
leads a book discussion on The Ornament of the World, a book about medieval
Spain and a time when Jews, Christians and Moslems lived together.
The book covers about seven and a half centuries, from the beginnings of the
Cordoba caliphate to the fall of Granada, last of the Moslem city-states, and the
expulsion in 1492. Along the way, we meet many leading Jewish figures, and
discover Jewish military generals and poets reviving the Hebrew language for

Religious School

Explorations
What a year we continue to be having in Religious School! Since our last update, we learned about Tu
Bishevat, philanthropy and bullying

January 27th - On the day of our Tu BiShevat seder we took a close look at environmental concerns, both lo-
cal and global, and considered not only what our Jewish texts teach us but also how some Jewish communities
incorporate these concerns into their everyday living. This culminated in a fabulous Tu BShevat seder.

February 3rd - Two thirds through our year-long effort to collect tzedaka, we began considering the subject of
philanthropy itself. After discussing what it is, why it is important and what it can accomplish, we initiated the
process of trying to figure out what is most important to the students of the Union Temple Religious School.
We have not yet determined where they will choose to donate, but we have begun the educational process of
how to figure it out.. Of course, after initiating the discussion, we made sure to ground the conversation in
Jewish text and tradition. I look forward to the next stage of the process, when hard decisions begin to get
made on where the money will go.

February 10 - During our final session before Presidents Week, we
honored the birthday of Judy Blume by celebrating her career and
paying close attention to the topic of bullying, about which she wrote
so movingly in her novel, Blubber. As is our custom, after raising the
issue as an full school community, we broke into class sections and
conducted age-appropriate lessons that placed the issue firmly within
a Jewish context.

We look forward to celebrating Purim with the Carnival followed by
the congregational pot-luck dinner, Rabbi Goodmans telling of the
Purim story and, of course, the Parade of Costumes! Sunday School
will resume on March 3
rd
.

I typically write about Union Temple children, but Id like to call at-
tention to the wonderful learning taking place on Wednesday nights,
too. A core of dedicated adult learners have been gathering together
each week to learn Hebrew -- not only how to decode it, but actually
to understand and speak it, too. As if that werent enough, after
studying the language together these past few months, our class came
to the consensus that they wanted more. The Hebrew is great but
they also wanted the opportunity for Jewish studies beyond Hebrew.
While the Anshei Mitzvah Class continues Hebrew every Wednesday
night from 8-9:15 PM, we have instituted a second class from 7-7:50
PM focusing on great books and ideas of Judaism. Previous partici-
pation in the Hebrew portion of our Anshei Mitzvah class is not nec-
essary to join in the new class. If you are interested in joining us,
please contact the office. The more the merrier!
