Dear Friends,
I am writing this message shortly after
Yom Kippur on which, as on Rosh
Hashanah, most of our community
converges in the sanctuary for what I
always hope will be a time of spiritual
fulfllment and human growth. I know
the High Holy Days are for me.
With the High Holy Days behind us now,
I want to reect on a couple of things;
that is I want to think out loud.
First, each year after the Holy Days I wonder how many of us,
and I include myself, take that which we learn about ourselves
and what we learn about life from the services and actually apply
it to our own every day lives. While reading the liturgy, we might
be saying, I do have to do this, or I do have to change in that
way. But when we return to the daily, hectic routines of our lives,
are those thoughts relegated to the back burner? While listen-
ing to the words of the Al Chet prayer in which we confess to
not observing Shabbat, or the other holidays which are just as
important as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, do you tell yourself
that you are going to change this year and begin to attend temple
more often? And then the following year you confess to not keep-
ing that resolution.
Second, are we not moved by words of the U-ntaneh Tokef, Who
shall live and who shall die; who in the fullness of years and who
before... while uttering them only to forget the importance of
making each day really special (as if it were your last) once Yom
Kippur has ended?
Third, when we sit among a congregation of hundreds, do we not
feel good to be a part of a really special community? What hap-
pens to those feelings once you get into your car?
I ask these questions because the answers should be apparent.
We should and indeed we can take what we have learned about
ourselves and about life and let these insights guide us throughout
the year. It is within our power to make each day special for our-
selves and also for our loved ones, our friends and our colleagues.
The good feeling of being part of a caring community need not
disappear after Yom Kippur. We have many, many opportunities to
be together during the year and to keep those good feelings alive.
Why not make the year 5774 a different year; a good year; a year
in which your Judaism does not go into hibernation. Ill look for-
ward to seeing you and to keeping those good feelings a part of
your life and a part of my life as well.

Dear Temple Emanu-El Family,
Weve all chosen to be part of
the Temple Emanu-El community.
So what does it mean to make
the choice to belong to a Jewish
community? I think it means that
we are looking for a place that is
welcoming, a place where we can
build intimate relationships, a place
where we are supportive of each
other, a place that addresses profound spiritual yearnings,
and a place where we can connect with Jewish tradition.
We are looking for a place to call home, a community.
I believe that Temple Emanu-El is that place. A commu-
nity is different than a congregation. A Congregation is a
place where people come together and where they congre-
gate, but a community is more than that. It is a network
of support and relationships. The more you take part, the
more you build those relationships and the more connect-
ed you feel. When we become part of the community, we
become part of something much larger than ourselves.
The Talmud states that For any person who works for the
needs of the community, it is as if that person is studying
Torah. By volunteering and become involved at Temple
Emanu-El, we are bringing Torah to life. By becoming
involved in and committed to a Jewish community, each
one of us makes Judaism come alive.
All of the programs and activities that we offer would not be
possible without our single most important resource: our
volunteers. Our volunteers are the backbone, and greatest
strength of this community. We rely on our volunteers and
committees in order to function theres no magic here.
Without our dedicated core of volunteers, we wouldnt
have someone handing us a prayer book at services, or
contacting new members; we wouldnt have Hamentashen
on Purim or a Purim Carnival, or a Break-the-Fast after Yom
Kippur. Volunteers helped create our website and Newslet-
ter every month; run our library; our Sisterhood gift Shop;
our Blood Drive; oversee our Religious School; create
social events and fundraising opportunities. We need help
in the following committees: Membership, PTO, Religious
School, Social, Fundraiser and Social Action.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any ques-
Best regards,
Lynn Dreyfuss Martin

With the Rabbi . . .
It has been announced by the NAACP Merrimack
Valley Branch that Rabbi Korinow will be a recipi-
ent of the Unsung Hero Award given by the
chapter at a special dinner on November 2, 2013.
Hefty is ready to start its best year ever! On October 5th, we are
going to kick off the year with a trip to Laser Quest in Danvers
from 5:45 to 9:45 pm. The cost is $15.00 for members and in-
cludes 2 games of laser tag, snacks and drinks. We did this event
a few years ago and had a great turnout.
Our next event, on November 2nd, is Shear Madness, a whodunit
comedy stage show held in Boston. The greatly subsidized cost
will be $25.00 plus dinner money. Pick up and drop off will be
at the Temple from 6:00 to 11:45 pm. Shear Madness is quickly
becoming a yearly event and we like it that way.
In the wonderful world of NFTY, we have Levi Leap, an annual
NFTY dance that draws over 300 Jewish teens from all over the
New England region. Its a great opportunity to meet new people
and develop long term friendships. Levi leap will be held on Oc-
tober 26th and will cost $24.00. There are also two other regional
NFTY events called Conclavettes that are weekend retreats with
very large attendance. Regional NFTY events are a great way to
meet new Jewish friends from all over the area.
As for ongoing projects, keep your eyes open for the start of
Snack Shack and even a side fundraiser to beneft Syrian youths.
This year our Hefty Board is comprised of: Ben Shalek, President
and Nfty Representative; Zach Shalek and Seth Kary, Co-Heads
of Fundraising; Chloe Isabelle-Alper, Member Representative;
Rebecca Flieder, Membership and Communications; Lauren Na-
than, Programming and Nfty Representative; Hannah Jacobs,
Religious and Cultural Programming; Josh Scher, Social Action;
and Izzy Allen flling our new position of Vice President Emeritus.
If you want to join us for lots of Jewish fun and are in the 8th-12th
grade range, send me an email at and I
will get you all the needed information. This years Hefty group
has a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm; I can already tell
that this is going to be a stellar year.

Now that the major fall holidays
have passed we can get back to
a normal routine without too many
changes in our schedules. I would
like to thank our ever faithful mad-
richim who helped lead our chil-
drens services. Almost all of them
(We have over 20 this year in our
High School Program!) were here
to help for one service or another.
I would like to give a special thank you to Sam Miller
who once again led Rosh Hashanah services and Seth
Helman who ran the Yom Kippur service for Grades
3 -6, and Alyssa Helman and Hannah Jacobs for running
both the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services for
Grades Pre-K Grade 2.
I am happy to say we presently have 9 new children in
our religious school (there is always room for more!). If
your child has a new student in his/her classroom please
say hello and introduce yourself when you see their par-
ents and help us make them feel welcome. These chil-
dren range in age from 2 through high school age.
The Early Childhood wing is working out well with chil-
dren from TAPT through Grade 2 joining together for
music each Sunday morning. Children in Pre-K through
Grade 2 are also enjoying having their own special Sun-
day morning service in the Chapel with Mindy.
October is a busy month. We try to have feld trips while
the weather is still nice. Grades 3 and 4 will be going to
the Magic Brush in Tewksbury to paint ceramic chanukiot
and Grade 7 will paint Judaic themed Chanukah bowls.
Grades 5 & 6 will be going to the Vilna Shul in Boston
and at the end of the month Grade 7 will be going on an
educational feld trip sponsored by the Jewish Cemetery
Association of Massachusetts on Cemeteries Are For
The Living.
On October 9th our 7th graders will be taking the food we
have been collecting to Emmaus House, while there, they
will learn the role Emmaus House plays in the Haverhill
community. If you would like to donate non-perishable
food, please come by and drop it off in the baskets near
the 10th Avenue Brindis Entrance.
We are looking forward to our frst Tot Shabbat of the year
on Friday, October 18th at 6:00pm. Tot Shabbat consists
of a short Service in the chapel then we gather for a pot
luck dinner in the Starensier Assembly, followed by sto-
ries, songs and Judaic crafts. Its a wonderful way for the
whole family to celebrate Shabbat. If you are interested
or know someone who might want to participate, please
call the temple offce 978-373-3861.

Chesed Committee
The Chesed Committee has begun this new year in the
sweetest way by delivering plates bearing honey cakes,
honey sticks and apples, and beautiful challot from Emilys
Bakery (in Haverhill) to those members who can no longer
easily get to Temple. To the bakers, the packagers, the de-
liverers, who all provided something special to others, thank
you, thank you. Scott Pelley, a CBS news reporter, wrote re-
cently that to reach out and touch another person with com-
passion and respect... releases your spirit to soar. I can't
think of a better way to start off this new year than by soaring
with kindness.
Speaking of soaring, lotsahelpinghands (lhh) is doing so;
many of you have signed on as members and are checking
out the volunteer opportunities. If you need help with signing
on, it is available through any of the Administrators of LHH
(Fred Feldman, Rhoda Feldman, Rabbi Ira Korinow, Nancy
LaFleur, Sharyn Russell).
We will be starting a new Sunshine program, sending
birthday greetings to some of our Temple members. A vol-
unteer opportunity, no experience necessary, can be done

Windows to the Future . . . is Back!
Thanks to a generous anonymous donation of $25,000, we are pleased to announce
the return of our Windows to the Future renovation project. A major part of this
campaign was to improve the aesthetics and function of the 10th Avenue entrance
and hallway.
Our punch list of building improvements will include:
o Repaint and clean up the exterior of the building on the 10th avenue entrance.
o Replace the six windows on the 10th avenue side of the building.
o Renovate the hallway from the 10th avenue entrance to the
library. This will include a new oor, new ceiling, new light xtures, covering the
exposed wires, covering the cinder block with sheetrock and installing oak baseboards
and handrails.
o Relocate the Holocaust Memorial and the family gift board to improve the circulation in the
Main Street lobby.
The estimated project cost for this work is $75,000. In order to complete all of the work, we need to raise an
additional $50,000. Please contact me at 978-372-1451 during the work day or 978-685-4535 at night if you
would like to make a gift to the campaign!

Author Stuart Tower
Sunday, October 13, 2013 Starting at 9:30am
Author Stuart Tower will discuss his latest book Branko. Mr. Towers frst book, The Wayfarers was highly
acclaimed and a movie is in the process of being made.
As described on Amazon, Rarely will literature, history, an author and a novel fnd that perfect balance of
authenticity and entertainment that represents an enduring classic. Stuart Towers The Wayfarers is that
perfect balance.
But The Wayfarers is much more than just historical fction. It is a well-researched look back at the 20th
Century Jewish movement out of Europe. This is a slice of life so real that turning the pages is like being
Filmmaker Steven Spielberg has remarked on the book, In todays fast-paced, electronic society, plain old-
fashioned, captivating story-telling is rare. In The Wayfarers, Stuart Tower has done just that.
In his latest book, Branko, Author Tower continues the story. Witnessing the brutal massacre that takes his
family, six-year old Branko Horvitch survives and goes on to a childhood fraught with abusive relatives
and unspeakable Tsarist orphanages. But the story of Branko Horvitch is not one of despair and destruction; it is a celebration of
unyielding determination in the face of near-overwhelming challenges.
Spanning the globe, it is a story grounded in the reality of extensive research and oers insights into history not usually reported.
Tower is also the author of Withered Roots: The Remnants of Eastern European Jewry, a collection of interviews with aging Holocaust
survivors in Romania, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, the former Yugoslavia and Bulgaria. Tower currently
resides in Los Angeles, California and is visiting the Boston area to
discuss his latest book.
The program will begin at 10:00 am. As always, a breakfast will be
served at 9:30 and admission and breakfast are free of charge.
Although walk-ins are always welcome, we ask that you RSVP
(for food preparation) to Nancy at

What a wonderful way to begin the New Year! Seventy-fve people gathered in the Winer Auditorium after Neilah to share
a meal and good thoughts with our Temple family. Almost all of the food was eaten and some foods were consumed
before everyone had a chance to take a frst helping. It was an enjoyable event for all.
Thank you to those who contributed food and to those who contributed monetary donations. Kudos also goes to Don
Kumis and Craig LaFleur (a sous chef ) for setting up the Winer Auditorium and making the beautiful platters, as well as
the cookie and juice bar in the foyer.
At Temple Emanu-El we hope that all members, their families and friends were inscribed for a year flled with joy, health,
and success.

munity. When preparing your will or when making
changes, please remember the Temple. Your gift will
provide for you and your loved ones a lasting way of
supporting Jewish life in the greater Haverhill area.

The following names at yahrzeit will be read on Shabbat
Honor your Mother and your Father
The Torah tells us that we must always honor our parents. Our Jewish tradition extends that law to say that we
must honor all our loved ones, and remember them in death. There is no better way to remember and honor the
memory of your departed family members than to have a Memorial Yahrzeit Plaque on the wall of the Temple
You have seen the plaques on the wall of the sanctuary. Each week, the plaques belonging to our beloved
departed, whose Yahrzeit, or anniversary of death, is that week, are lighted. This is to recognize the anniversary
of that person, and to give us an opportunity to lovingly honor the memory of that person, at least once every
year. Also, three times per year, on Yizkor, all the plaques are lit to remember all the loved ones of our Temple.
The plaque contains the name of the deceased, both in English and Hebrew, as well as the date of the persons
death. The plaques are available whenever the sanctuary is open, so someone can always see the name and
remember the loving memories of the departed family member. This is a loving way to remember a parent, spouse
or child.
The cost of a memorial Yahrzeit plaque is a one-time cost of $250. This cost includes the engraving of the
plaque, placing it on the wall, in alphabetical order, and having it lit on Yahrzeit and Yizkor to perpetuity. To
purchase a plaque, contact Nancy or the Rabbi at the Temple, (978) 373-3861.

Scrip Comes to Temple Emanu-El!
Shop with Scrip is an easy way to support Temple Emanu-El. Sim-
ply purchase gift cards (or scrip) for places where you plan to
shop, and use those cards instead of cash or credit. The Temple
purchases the gift cards at a discount and sells them at full face
value; you use them at full face value at your favorite retailers. The
beauty is that you put your regular shopping dollars to work. You
earn money for the Temple without spending a single additional
penny. Keep cards for Shaws, Kohls, Starbucks, Target, CVS,
Dunkin Donuts and many other retailers in your pocket to use just
like cash. Scrip can be used for all your household purchases:
groceries, clothes, household supplies, gasoline, entertainment,
dining, and gifts, to name just a few.
Our frst few orders, though small, were quite successful. As we
increase our participation, this has the potential to be a great fund-
raiser for the Temple.
Now that we have several
orders behind us and are
more familiar with the process, we are moving to a regular sched-
ule. Orders will be collected and submitted on the 10th of each
month (or the next business day if the Temple offce is closed). For
inclusion in our next order, forms and payments should be submit-
ted to the offce no later than october 10, 2013.
Our Scrip vendor is continually adding new retailers. Well use this
space, as well as reminder emails, to let you know when new gift
cards are available.
Order forms and additional information are available on the wall
outside the Temple offce, in the library, and on our website at You may also order scrip
online at
