Rabbis Message
Women this Past Year
It would seem as though much of this year has focused on women's rights. On Yom Kippur I ad-
dressed the destructive plan for the government to withdraw funding from Planned Parenthood.
This past January I had the honor of delivering the invocation before the Governor's State of the
State Address in Albany. My role there in particular was to set the stage for the Governor's
Women's Equality Agenda, addressing equal pay for equal work, protection from sexual harass-
ment, anti-discrimination laws regarding pregnancy (or potential pregnancy), non-discrimination
laws in cases of abuse, and access to medical care, particularly with regard to reproductive health care. It is a ten
-part agenda which cannot be parsed. All ten issues must be included in the final legislation.
Then, barely more than a week after this address, I had the privilege of speaking on an interfaith panel at the
Downstate Medical School regarding reproductive choice. This forum was convened by Medical Students for
Choice, and was scheduled to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. We at Union Temple also
marked this anniversary with a forum on the salient issues that still exist.
This past March, I joined several hundred of our fellow New York Jews at the Town & Village Synagogue for
Rosh Chodesh Nisan, in solidarity with Women of the Wall, who were being arrested in increasing numbers
month after month this past year, for the "offenses" of wearing talitot and praying in full voice at the Kotel
Hama'aravi, the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Early this May, I joined our fellow Reform Jews from New York for Advocacy Day of Reform Jewish Voice
of NYS in Albany, to urge our legislators to adopt the Governor's Women's Equality Agenda.
Then this past May 10th, I again joined our fellow New York Jews in Madison Square Park for the celebration of
Rosh Chodesh Sivan, and in solidarity with Women of the Wall. But this time, it was after the Jerusalem District
Court decision declaring that women wearing talitot, reading from the Torah, and praying together at the Kotel
did NOT constitute provocation and public disturbance. This time, instead of arresting Women of the Wall, the
police arrested the Haredim who were throwing rocks at them. Finally - reason and sanity emerge.
Looking back on this extraordinary series of events, only within a six-month period, doesn't it seem odd that
we're having to put out all this energy at this time? Shouldn't all this be self-evident by now? The Women's
Movement moved into full swing 40 years ago. Why should we still be fighting these fights now, 40 years
later? Equal pay for equal work? Access to reproductive health care? Protection against harassment and
abuse? . . . Where are we living? Isn't this supposed to be an enlightened society? Isn't Israel supposed to be
one too? New York, of course, is one of the more progressive states in our country, or so we would like to
think. But the regressive statutes introduced, and in some cases passed, by other states around the country, are
turning the clock back on women's reproductive rights in very serious ways.
We are moving into the summer months, and naturally, we will slow down a bit. But these issues are still very
much with us. And we dare not let down our guard too much, lest we lose ground that we cannot afford to
lose. I hope that all of us will remain vigilant so that we can bring our society into line with the progress that
we would wish to have made by now. This is for ALL of us. . . .
I do wish all of you a restful summer, and hope you will drop in for Shabbat services during July and August,
in support of your fellow congregants.
-Rabbi Linda Henry Goodman

Officers Column
Stepping Up
One of the gratifying things about being a long-
time member of the Temple (has it really been
six years since our adult Bnei Mitzvah?) is see-
ing new leaders emerge. This year has been es-
pecially rewarding.
For two years now, the Temple has been
blessed with the highly-effective duo of Faye
White-Willinger and Lorri Gumanow, co-chairs
of the Religious School Committee. Largely
due to their efforts, we now have a firmly estab-
lished First Friday Family Shabbat and the fun-
filled annual kids Purim Festival.
Special thanks are due to all our Youth Group
parents, who totally stepped up when our Youth
Group leader resigned, to keep the program go-
ing for their teenagers. Co-chairs Susan Buchs-
baum, Beatrice Segal and Rachel Woolley, in
particular, were instrumental in pulling off an-
other Midnight Run, collecting and distributing
food and clothing, with the kids, to the home-
less on the streets of Manhattan and serving
on the search committees that brought us our
new Youth Group Leader, Aaron Levi, and our
first Director of Youth and Family Engagement,
Mindy Sherry.
Bob Newhouser and Pearl Schonfeld recently
took the reins of the Adult Education Commit-
tee, ably succeeding the indefatigable Peggy
Lebenson. Already they have nailed down the
rest of this years events, and half of next years
schedule. It will be a well-packed year.
And what a find we have in Dennies Gajadhar.
Dennies has organized crews to make latkes,
hamentaschen, cookies and all manner of feasts
for special occasions. She was the driving force
behind Union Temples first congregational Sec-
ond Seder, a wonderful tradition in the making.
The work of the Temple couldnt go on without
the efforts of all our generous and dedicated
volunteers. I thank you all and am delighted to
see your numbers increase.
-Bea Hanks, President
On Advocacy Day for Reform Jewish Voice; Patricka
and Howard Katzman, and Rabbis Linda and Stephen
Goodman, in the NY State Assembly Chamber.

Union Temple Goes to Albany


Did you feel the earth shake in April?
Well, it didwith a court decision in
Israel that was felt by Jewish women
around the world. On April 11, 2013,
Judge Moshe Sobel of the Jerusalem
District Court upheld the earlier deci-
sion of the magistrate's court that
women who wear prayer shawls and
pray aloud at the Western Wall should
not be arrested. He agreed with the
magistrate's ruling that Women of the
Wall are neither violating "local cus-
tom" nor "causing a public distur-
bance." He wrote, according to The
Times of Israel, that "the idea of the
'tradition of the site' can be interpreted
more broadly, in terms that are
'pluralistic-secular-nationalist' rather
than purely Orthodox."
Join Sisterhood on Sunday, June 2nd at
10 AM., as we celebrate this ground-
breaking decision and view the stirring
and powerful documentary PRAYING
Sisterhood
A Voice to be Heard
IN HER OWN VOICE: The
Struggle of the Women of the
Wall for Religious Freedom
in Israel. It's an inspiring
way to end what has been a
season of terrific programs.
To top it off, there will be a
sumptuous brunch and a not-
to-be missed mystery raffle.
Since this will be our last
program of the season, we'll
also be holding a brief elec-
tion. We hope that you
would like to submit your
name or nominate someone
as an officer or member of
the board. Not yet a member
of Sisterhood? Not to worry.
Sisterhood bills will be
mailed out this month. Join-
ing our warm circle of
friendship is as easy as mail-
ing in a check for $36. Just
think--for only double chai
you can perform the mitzvah
of bringing hope and help
where they are needed by
adding your voice, your
heart, and your hands to ours
as together we reach out to
help our temple, our commu-
nity, and our world.
Sisterhood wishes everyone
a happy summer. Enjoy all
the pleasures of the long,
lazy days of July and Au-
gust. Then come back rested,
happy, and ready to join us
for another great season!

Preschool
Sipping and Bidding
As we near the end of the school year in addition to
focusing on year end events in the classrooms, we also
had some school-wide fund-raising events. On April
10th

we kicked off our annual on-line silent auction.
Bidding went on for two weeks culminating in a won-
derful Spring Gala. The Gala was held on Wednesday
evening April 24th in the Temple Ballroom. The
theme for the evening was old Hollywood. The room
was decorated with black table linens, beautiful can-
dles, flowers and lots of glitter. Catering for the event
was pr ovi ded by Car l o Sor anno of
www.mychefdirect.com. Desserts were provided by
Sarah Dima, a parent of a Robin student, and owner of
606 R&D. In addition to donating delicious home-
made donuts, one of the specialties of her restaurant,
she also donated several cheese platters for the party,
and two silent auction items, gift certificates to her
restaurant. The highlight of the evening was a live
auction hosted by a comedian and actor, Steve Rosen.
He really got the crowd going with a combination of
humor and enthusiasm. We were lucky enough to be
able to auction off a two room suite at a luxury hotel
in Del Rey Beach Florida; a beautiful pair of earrings;
a closet consultation by a stylist to the stars; a cooking
tutorial for two offered by Melissa Clark, a parent of a
Puffin student; two donations of a long weekend at
their beautiful home in the Catskills by Vanessa and
Rob Kassabian, parents of a Chickadee student; an
Australian Barbeque at the home of Andrew Leitch
and Alexandra Tolk, parents of a Chickadee student;
tickets to Annie donated by Lara Cohen and Ben Heller,
parents of a Sparrows student; and some incredible
photographs donated by Anna Williams and Todd
Huffman, both parents of Robins students.
The evening was a lot of fun. We sipped wine,
Prosecco and gimlets as we listened to music from the
forties. The silent auction and spring gala with its live
auction set a record as the biggest fund-raisers we
have ever held. We plan on spending the funds to un-
derwrite a new Spanish program as well as to increase
the presence of our schools psychological consultant
at the school. Our Spanish program will begin in Sep-
tember and we will be offering it on Monday and
Wednesday afternoons to all full day students.
Many thanks to an incredibly dedicated and hard-
working committee that included, Nicole Tu, Kebra
Caleo, Andrew Leitch, Abby Fleischer, Rachel Ulanet,
and Laura Phillips. Special thanks to Krista Bogetich
who headed up both the silent auction and the Spring
Gala. Her incredible hard-work, dedication, and amaz-
ing organizational skills, all came together to make
this an amazing event.

CANTOR LAUREN PHILLIPS We have been blessed for the past three years with the an-
gelic voice and sweet personality of Cantor Lauren Phillips. Now, after being ordained by the He-
brew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Lauren will begin serving this summer as Cantor

Hors dOeuvres reception at 5:45-6:30 PM, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat at 6:30 PM, which will feature the

more about her. But she already has spent a service with us and sung a duet with Lauren, and everyone agrees
that she has an absolutely beautiful voice. Our congregation is indeed blessed.

MINDY SHERRY, Director of Youth and Family Engagement Our Board of Trustees made
the very wise and forward-looking decision to put together a new professional position for Union
Temple, beginning this June, the Director of Youth and Family Engagement. In addition to tak-
ing the reins of our Religious School, the Director will oversee Aaron and the Youth Group, es-
tablish a college connection, and increase connections between our Preschool and Religious
School. The search committee consisted of Rabbi Goodman, President Bea Hanks, Preschool Di-
rector Susan Sporer, and members of our Religious School and Youth Group committees. We met with a
number of highly qualified people, and ultimately offered the position to Mindy Sherry, whom all of us will
get to know well in the coming months. Mindy just completed two Masters Degrees at the Rhea Hirsch
School of Education of the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute Religion in Los Angeles. Her degrees are
Master of Arts in Jewish Education, and Master of Arts in Jewish Nonprofit Management. Mindy also holds a
Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work from Florida International University in Miami, FL. Mindy has
had both administrative and educational experience at congregations in San Pedro, Irvine, Los Angeles, and
Pacific Palisades, CA, and Coral Gables and Coconut Grove, FL. She also has Youth Group and Jewish Camp
leadership experience. Mindy has been to visit our congregation, and has spent a Shabbat with us at services,
sat in on our Adult Hevre, visited our Preschool, and attended our Yom Hashoah commemoration. She is very
much looking forward to working with us, as we are with her. Mindy will begin her work with us on June 10.
Bruchah Habaah, Welcome Mindy!

AARON LEVI, YOUTH GROUP LEADER Aaron assumed the leadership of UniTY, our
Temple Youth Group, earlier this spring. He grew up in Maryland and in the labor-Zionist youth
movement Habonim Dror. After a gap-year in Israel, he attended New York University's Gallatin
School of Individualized Study. He wrote a column as an undergrad for the student newspaper about
studying abroad in Morocco and Jewish-Muslim relations on NYUs campus. In addition, Aaron
taught immersive Hebrew and Judaic Studies at Gan Shalom and Congregation Beth Elohim in
Brooklyn and interned at the Jewish Daily Forward. During the summer, Aaron worked as a counselor at Hab-
onim Dror Camp Moshava in Maryland, as a leader for Israel teen trips, and as an intern with the Jewish
Agency's Israel Department in Jerusalem. In 2007, Aaron graduated NYU as an Honors Scholar with a B.A. in
Judaic Studies, Hebrew, and Journalism. The following year, he served as the summer executive director at
Camp Moshava before living in Israel for a year where he taught English and studied Hebrew. From 2010-2012,
