Building Torat Yisraels Future


Our new High Holiday prayerbook, Mahzor Lev Hadash, enhanced our High Holiday services immensely. Those who worshipped with us commented on how much easier they found it to follow along with the service, how interesting the marginal notes were and how creative and inspiring the supplementary readings were. So many more of us were able to sing along thanks to the well-placed transliterations right on the page. We are deeply grateful to the entire Sholes Family for bringing this invaluable resource to our congregation. This new Mahzor is one of the finest new efforts of the Rabbinical Assembly of the Conservative Movement and this gift to our congregation transformed our experience. We were delighted to welcome Hazzan Devin Goldenberg back to Torat Yisraels bimah for these Days of Awe. Hazzan Goldenberg was so inspired by our new Mahzor that he composed an entirely new and spiritually profound melody for the opening words of the Rosh Hashanah service that reverberated throughout our services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Hazzan Goldenberg shared this melody with his colleagues in the Cantors Assembly and Cantors around the country inspired their congregation with our Hazzans composition this year. Our Hazzans voice, spirit, and neshamah / soul, profoundly touched us this year. A delightful new element of our High Holiday service was Karen Goldenbergs beautiful Torah reading for the first day of Rosh Hashanah. Roberta Arsac grew up at Torat Yisrael. Therefore, it is a particular source of pride to have Roberta lead us in Psukei Dizimra (the Preliminary Service) both mornings of Rosh Hashanah. Robertas musicality and excellent Hebrew set the mood for the entire day. David Wassers mellifluous voice and fluent Hebrew turned Shacharit into a new spiritual journey for us on both mornings of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur as well. David also did his typically excellent job reading Torah on Yom Kippur afternoon at Minchah. Whenever Herb Spivack takes the bimah to lead a service, we are aware of being led by one of our congregations most highly regarded and treasured leaders. Herb has been leading us in prayer for the Yom Kippur Preliminary Service for many years. This was the second year Herb led us in the Maariv Service at the end of Yom Kippur as well, a position that has always been reserved for our most revered leaders. Adult members of Torat Yisrael remember well the demanding and informative classes Herb taught in our Religious School when they were children, making his presence on our bimah even more meaningful. Frank Prosnitz continued to serve as our congregations Baal Tekiah / Master Shofar Blower. There is something really awesome about the aplomb with which Frank delivers his never-ending tekiah gdolah time after time! Rabbi Amy Levin coordinated and led this extraordinary team to create High Holiday Services for 5772 / 2011 that we will long remember. After a number of requests, Rabbi Levin has posted her sermons on our Torat Yisrael website. Youll find a link to these sermons right on our Home Page: www.toratyisrael.org 1

High Holidays 5772 . . . An Unprecedentedly Moving Experience

Greetings from Susan Smoller, President


Shalom Fellow Congregants, As we are enjoying the high holidays, I appreciate the opportunity for us to spend time with our family and friends and to enjoy the company of our fellow congregants. It is during this season that we relax together, eat together and converse. We will be breaking the Yom Kippur fast together soon and then spending time eating together in the Sukkah on October 16th. We will enjoy a relaxing Friday evening service in East Greenwich on October 14th starting at 7:30 pm followed by chocolate in many forms from chocolate martinis, to covered fruit to brownies and some healthier food too! The common denominator to all these activities is communication! The opportunity for us to share ideas and information in order to ensure that each of us is aware of what is happening in the congregation and of course with our friends and family. The leadership has been preparing for this year and has held leadership meetings that were facilitated by Billy Mencow and Marion Gribetz of Gribetz Mencow Consultants. We discussed the opportunities for improved communication, for definition of the needs of our Cohen Religious School and for leadership training. I look forward to continued discussions with the temple leadership and Billy and Marion as the year progresses. We will be discussing Torat Yisrael opportunities and ensure that we will all support each other in whatever manner possible to ensure our continued success. As the sale of the building continues, I will keep you informed and let everyone know the status of the new building. I hope that you have had a chance to see the new sign on Middle Road a big Thank You to Sharon and Michael Field for donating it. Please contact me at any time with any comments or questions. BShalom, Susan

The Cohen School News


Shalom, As we begin our school year with the Yeladon Program and the Cohen School, I wanted to share with you our new direction and an outline of the new curriculum, which encompasses three core values: a) Being Jewish and identifying as a Jew. This includes understanding and appreciating the love of our tradition and who we are as Jews. b) Feeling comfortable in Services and with the structure of the Service. c) Recognizing that there is a place for me in my Jewish family, in Torat Yisrael, in the Rhode Island Jewish Community, in the Jewish Community in the United States and in the World Jewish Community. As the children are progressing from grade to grade, we will build out the concept of Israel in concentric circles of family, congregation, local, national and then international Jewish communities. Our curriculum is divided into 3 parts: God, Torah, and Israel. Each class will also focus on a value and create a special project based on that value. In kindergarten, the children will learn about God. They will learn about the mitzvot that help us build a connection with Godthis includes praying, celebrating Shabbat, and being mindful of what we eat, for example the basics of kashrut. In Torah, the children will learn the stories of Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah, The Tower of Babel. The value that they will focus on will be Tsaar Baalei Chaimnot causing pain to animals and caring for animals. The children will learn the meaning of doing mitzvot---that mitzvot are more than good deeds. Mitzvot are actions that the Torah teaches that we must do to make the world a better place. The children will learn that mitzvot are actions that bring holiness to the world. In Hebrew, the children will learn the names and the sounds of the letters through auditory and visual approaches and will begin to learn simple Hebrew words that will provide the foundation for Jewish life vocabulary. Grade 1: The children will learn about Gods House. In Torah they will learn about Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Esau, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah. The children will learn about the concept of Israel by focusing on the family-how we can express honoring our parents-kivud av veim. Students will learn basic Hebrew vocabulary around family. The children will be engaged in a beginning reading program that provides exposure to the Hebrew letters and vowels. Students will increase their repertoire of Jewish life vocabulary. Grade 2: The children will become familiar with God as a loving presence. In Torah, they will learn the stories of Joseph, Moses, Miriam and Ruth. The children will learn what it means to help others and why we help those in need. They will learn about the mitzvot for protecting the environment. The students value that they will focus on will be gemilut hasadimActs of loving kindness and good deeds. In Hebrew, the students will learn how to decode words by blending letters and sounds. Students will complete learning to read the aleph-bet. The children will be able to read words in Hebrew that they are familiar with and continue to build on their Jewish life vocabulary.

Grades 3: The 3rd grade students will learn about the core values and structure of the Torah. They will learn the overview of the names of the books of the Torah. The students will begin learning about the structure of the prayer book and gain a deeper understanding of the Siddur (prayerbook). The students will explore their place in the spiritual community to Torat Yisrael. Grade 4: The students will study the Book of Exodus. They will learn about the role that Moses played in the leadership of the Jewish people. The value that the children will focus on is Shmirat Halashon- Taking Care of ones speech- not gossiping nor lying. The students will gain a richer understanding of peoplehood and their relationship with the communal life of the synagogue. The value that they will focus on will be vahavta lreacha kmocha- loving ones friend as oneself. The students will also learn the Parashat Hashavuathe Torah reading of the week. The students will be using the text Partners with God. This book uses Bible stories, folktales and art to engage students in thoughts about their spirituality and helps answer their questions about God. Grades 3 & 4: Hazzan Goldenberg will guide the students around the structure of the prayer book and the structure of the Shabbat Service and will help students explore the meanings of the prayers. Grade 5: The children will learn about the covenant with God and how students can honor their covenant with God. The value that they will focus on is Btzelem elohim in Gods image- knowing that we are all created in the image of God. They will be learning about the connection between God and the wisdom of the Torah and how to live as a holy people. The children will learn how they are connected to the Jewish Community of Rhode Island. They will learn about the history of the early Jewish colonial settlers of Rhode Island including Moses Seixas, the founder of the oldest Jewish Masonic Lodge. Hazzan Goldenberg will teach the theology of the Torah Service, How to lead the Torah Service and the brachot for an aliyah. In January they will begin to learn how to chant the Torah text (trop)

The students will be strengthening their fluency in Hebrew reading. They will learn additional vocabulary that will help in the comprehension of the prayers that they are reading. Grades 6 & 7: In 6th grade the value that the students will be focusing on is tzniut/avanah, modesty and humility, taking care not to be showoff in words and deeds. The 7th grade students will focus on savalnut and sovlanut---patience and tolerance for others who may be different from oneself. There will be a class on Jewish life cycle. Topics will include conversion, baby naming and Bar Mitzvah. The students will be studying modern day Israelthe text for the students will be Experiencing modern Israel- it just came out this year with an accompanying online site. They will learn about Israel todayculture, arts and everyday life in Israel. They will be continuing to learn to achieve Hebrew reading fluency. They will be introduced to more Hebrew vocabulary and be able to comprehend the meaning of the prayers. Hazzan Goldenberg will teach the students the portion of the week, the structure of the Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat Service and how to lead the Torah Service. We are fortunate to have Rabbi Levin teach a class on Tuesday called Torah People focusing on the insights into relationships we can learn from the family stories in Genesis/Breishit for 6th & 7th graders. Our teachers this year are David Wasser, Stacey Weisman, Megan Burdeshaw, Jenn Futterman, Itamar Futterman, Hazzan Goldenberg, and Rabbi Levin. Laura Steele, the Librarian will be meeting with the students at the Village Lower School, K-4 once a month. She will be engaging the children in hands on activities related to the specific Jewish value as outlined in the curriculum. If you have any questions about the Yeladon Program or the Cohen School, please call me. Lshalom, Donna Tarutz Education Director 785-1800 / tarutz@toratyisrael.org

Gossip
At a time of year when we are asked to reflect on ourselves I wanted to dedicate a column to gossip. I will not, in case there was any doubt, be gossiping but rather discussing the often caustic effects of gossip. Studies that have come out by social scientists about gossip sometimes make distinctions between "good gossip and "harmful" gossip. Good gossip is defined as useful information that orients people to current events in their group(s) and/or social norms. A timely example of this might be hearing that a neighbor has lost power and water. Community members, upon learning about this, can make decisions to inquiry with the neighbor and offer assistance. Overall this type of gossip aids in survival.

The type of gossip described as harmful is when what is shared changes the way we think or look at a person. It does not protect a person or community but rather sways the listener to alter their perception. A recent study out of Northeastern in fact reports that the brain registers persons described negatively as nefarious. This is whether or not the description was accurate! Certainly it gives a weight to what we choose to say or not say about others. Not surprising to many readers is that this new research echoes much of what Judaism has described historically of a code of conduct for speech. Paraphrasing as a lay person, lashon hara or the evil tongue, forbids gossip. It does not matter if the information is true that is being shared. Gossip, as many of us have experienced, can have exponential impact and once it is shared the impact cannot be

erased. The exceptions to gossip by the Jewish code of conduct seem to be similar to what the current research reflects - gossip is allowable in cases of where harm will be avoided by speaking up and/or in a court of law. We depend on each other in community and it is clear that every word can count whether you look to contemporary research or ancient teachings that reflect this important truth. Do you have a topic you are interested in hearing more about? Please contact me for this or other information, support, or community resources. All services are free and confidential. Ideas for monthly columns are always welcome! Andrea Epstein: (401) 369-0160 or andrea@toratyisrael.org

Librarians Corner by Laura Steele, Torat Yisrael Librarian


Heres a book I recently came across which is perfect for the upcoming holidays. High Holiday Stories: Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur Thoughts on Family, Faith and Food written by Nancy Rips would be a beautiful addition for anyone who wishes to add more stories and remembrances to their own celebrations. We all have our own memories of these special days. It's a time to remember, a time to be with families, and a time to tell stories about past generations. High Holiday Stories is filled with 101 heartfelt holiday remembrances, from famous people, and some only known in their own circle of family and friends. They recount varied Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur experiences, from observing the holiday in the Colorado Rockies to Army bases in Iraq, even online in L.A. The stories come from people of all ages, all professions, from New York to California, New Zealand to England. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!! Happy Holidays to all!! Laura Steele
