A Message from The President:

Will JCM survive past this coming Sukkot? It’s up to each of us.

The JCM culture of depending on a handful of angel donors for survival is poisonous. Our entire community must have ownership in JCM - “skin in the game” - in order for JCM to thrive. My top priority right now is membership. We are having a membership call-a-thon Tuesday evening with the goal of 100% renewal for current members. I want to follow this up with a membership campaign targeting everyone who has ever been a member of JCM. If you are reading these words, and you have not yet renewed your membership for our new fiscal year of July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020 then I am asking you to renew or re-join now. It’s easy. Surf on over to mauijews.com and simply click on Join.

I want to make it crystal clear to the community that we are indeed talking about survival here. If we want a full spectrum of Jewish life to survive on Maui for all the Jewish babies being born and raised here — if we want to preserve an example of Jewish life where girls can sing out loud and be counted equally — then each person needs to stretch their pocketbook and give, whatever that means for them.

If you have ever been a member of JCM during its over 20-year history, then I know you care. You care about about Jewish continuity. You care about the Jewish people. You care about Jewish survival. We the members of JCM are the stewards of our little corner of the Jewish people. If you are a Jew on Maui, if you are a Jew who has ever visited Maui and been amazed (“there are Jews on Maui???”), if you are a Jew who wants to visit Maui (isn’t that everyone???) then I’m inviting you to be part of our Maui Jewish ‘Ohana.

Part of the challenge here is that we want to know what we are giving for. To that end, I want to give each of us a clear picture of what JCM could look like. I am personally financing, along with Dr Eve Berman, a Shabbaton weekend in mid-August with a visiting rabbi I know from the mainland. His name is Rabbi Shalom Bochner. He is currently the Rabbi of a Conservative shul in Modesto, CA, where over the past six years he took a congregation in a crisis situation not unlike ours and rebuilt it into a thriving community.

Rabbi Shalom specializes in building “many pathways” into Jewish life. He is a community builder. He is solid and steady. He is a genuinely caring person. I personally think he is the ideal Rabbi model for JCM. I am bringing him here because I want our community to experience his approach. My goal is to present a clear vision of what is possible for our community, so that everyone is motivated to give generously to make that possibility a reality.

The Shabbaton is scheduled for the weekend of Tu B’Av - the “Jewish Valentine’s Day” - August 15-18. There are several different events planned: details are on our website, mauijews.com. I ask you to plan on attending some or all parts of this very special Shabbaton. It’s going to be joyous, inspirational, uplifting, and a lot of fun!

Kol tuv,

Sheri

A Message from The President:

First of all, thank you. I am honored to be entrusted by you to serve as our community as President at this critical time of transition. Our primary task is clear: rebuilding relationships. Our previous Board, under the tireless leadership of Ellyn Mortimer, guided our community on the first steps of this transition. We now have the opportunity to build on this foundation to guide our community to greatness.

It starts and ends with relationships; rebuilding broken relationships and building new ones. Everything we do must be focused through the lens of building relationships. Many in our community regard JCM membership as a transactional proposition: I pay you x dollars, you provide me with services and programming (a Bar mitzvah, High Holiday services, etc). I want us to guide our community away from this fee-for-service view and toward a relational view: my membership of x dollars supports Jewish life on Maui, creates a place where I can connect with my tribe.

We have tremendous potential. We CAN create the vibrant, egalitarian and inclusive Jewish community that we all want. We can create a true Kehilah - a sacred community - which infuses each of our individual lives with purpose and deep connection. Our job as Jews is and has always been to carry the torch of morality, of right living in the world, of serving something greater than ourselves. We Jews call that nameless something “Hashem” - “The Name”.

Join me in building Jewish community on Maui. Join or renew your membership today. And please consider giving an extra Gift From the Heart. The need is critical. The time is now.

All the best,

Sheri Levin McNerthney

Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

This week’s Torah portion is Shelach (Numbers13:1 to 15:41) which recounts the story of the spies-twelve representatives, one from each tribe, who were sent to scout the land-and concludes with the mitzvah of Tzitzit, the fringes on the corners of a Talit, and the mitzvah of wearing the Talit itself. 

The spies were sent to “scout” the land:

When Moses sent them to scout the land of Canaan, he said to them, “Go up there into the Negeb and on into the hill country, and see what kind of country it is. 

Are the people who dwell in it strong or weak, few or many? 

Is the country in which they dwell good or bad? Are the towns they live in open or fortified?

Is the soil rich or poor? Is it wooded or not? And take pains to bring back some of the fruit of the land.”

The first Friday night "traveling shabbat" service will be held in Lahaina on July 12. We are working on coordinating a location, and have a few suggestions. Thinking of hosting? Contact admin@mauijews.org or Sam at samshnider@gmail.com.

Your ballot is due on June 21; the ballots will be counted on Sunday, June 23 and announced at the Annual Member Meeting.

If you have not received your ballot, and you would like to vote, please email ellynmortimer@gmail.com, and we will determine the best way to cast your vote.

Also, please remember to vote both sides of the ballot. The proposed set of bylaws are available here. You must be logged in as a member to view the election information. If you need a login reset, please email ellynmortimer@gmail.com


From Ellyn Mortimer...

Two things on my mind this week:

New Rabbi Job Description is Complete...Click here to read it.

We are excited to see who will be our next leader. If you want to be involved in this process, please let us know. Once we receive resumes, there will be a vetting process and the strongest candidates will be shared with the members. We plan to have enough funds to bring the finalists to Maui to meet everyone and get all of your feedback.

High Holidays...they are quickly approaching. Sam and the Board of Directors are working on the details of the upcoming holidays to ensure that they are meaningful for everyone. We will get the schedule posted as soon as we have one. If you have any ideas or input on the holidays, please let us know at admin@mauijews.org

Everything that we work on is for the whole of the congregation. Because of that, we welcome your input, your ideas, and your participation. We want to be doing the things that will bring you to JCM, so let us know

To achieve both of these endeavors, we need your help. 

We want to offer our new rabbi the best possible salary package to join our congregation, and we need donations to  help us pay for a visiting Rabbi for the High Holidays... it's up to all of us. I read on Facebook and hear from our congregants that you want a full time rabbi- now is the time to show you mean it.

 

Do you have a condo JCM could use to house a visiting Rabbi? We are looking for August 16-18 and September 27- October 10. 

 

Join, Renew, Donate, Participate... it matters.


Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

This week's portion is Beha'alotecha (Numbers 8:1-12:16). It is full of many ideas and topics for meditation, which seem almost disconnected in their multifaceted variety: a description of the lighting of the menorah and the eternal light; a ceremony that launches the Levites onto their careers as spiritual teachers; an account of how outcasts were given a second opportunity to join the community in the observance of passover; an account of the pillar of fire and the pillar of cloud and the orchestration of moving a camp of over a million persons with a system of bugle calls and beacons; and the order of the movement of the people by tribe, each tribe with its flag and its general.

JCM mourns the loss of our friend

Miriam Katz

 

              

 

 

 

My mother Miriam Katz, passed on late Sunday afternoon. She is a member of JCOM.

It was a difficult day, but a beautiful ending to her long and wonderful life. Her breathing was different but she was not in pain. I knew the time was imminent. I am grateful that Noah and Lily were there. 
Noah and Lily can look back on that day and be proud that they were there to send her off with love. My mother knew we were there. I was with her the whole afternoon. Sending her off was a sad but wonderful experience. I wish I could have had that with my father. 
There is a lot to do as she will be going to Israel to be buried next to my father. 
We will have an event on Maui at some point. Family and friends have been writing their experience in knowing her and I may create a memorial if you have something to add. 
Here are photos of her at her best.   ~Joel Katz

Your membership is up June 30. We are changing our membership to partner with our fiscal year of July 1- June 30. Dues are not increasing, and as always, you will not need High Holiday tickets or ever pay to pray. Thank you to everyone who renewed memberships, donated to our congregation, and has shown support... we will be making membership renewal phone calls in the next week or so. If you don't like a phone call, You may want to renew now. click here :)

Rabbi Search:

Our rabbi job description will be ready soon. It will be posted locally for anyone who wants to forward it on, and it will be listed globally. We have received a few unsolicited resumes, and once we have a good selection, we will have the search committee meet and select the finalists. We plan on bringing out final candidates for a Shabbaton weekend. If we can afford this, we will do it... and that leads us to...

Fundraising:

You are cordially invited to the kick-off meeting for the JCM Fundraising Committee 2.0. We're meeting at the synagogue on Friday June 14 from 12-1:47.

Thank you everyone for your kind words, shows of support, voting, sending notes, attendance and participation, letting us know your priorities/wants/needs... THANK YOU!!!

 

Join, Renew, Donate, Participate... it matters.


Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

The Parshah this week, Naso, ("Lift Up") contains one of the oldest of biblical texts that have still survived to this day - the priestly blessing, of Numbers 6:23-27. The Israel museum in Jerusalem has on display a tiny scroll, discovered by a thirteen year old Israeli schoolboy, who accidentally fell into a hidden cave in an excavation site headed by Gabriel Barkay at Ketef Hinnom in 1979. The tiny scroll took three years to unfurl with great care, and seven years to decipher. Once deciphered, the archaeologists found that it contained only the three verses of the priestly blessing - the same verses that we recognize. The scroll dates four centuries prior to the dead sea scrolls, to the times of Jeremiah.

From Ellyn Mortimer...

This is Election is taking up much of our time, I apologize for not writing and eloquent update on what has been happening this week.

Here are the quick details (well, as quick as a chatterbox like me can be).

I do want to let everyone know that people have responded, and membership renewals are coming in and we are on our way to the matching gift. Thank you to everyone who is excited with us for the future of JCM. I have loved seeing old friends nad meeting new ones this week when you come in to vote.

I also want to let you know we have installed two continual loop cameras at the entrances to JCM. While we do not want to live in fear, we do want to take great precautions for everyone's safety. 

See you at our Beit Shalom voting booth!


Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

This week we read Parshat Bamidbar, count the 49th day in the cycle seven weeks, and continue immediately into the Festival of Shavuot, which begins on Saturday night June 8, and concludes on Monday evening. 

 

The Festival of Shavuot is referred to alternatively as “the festival of the harvest” (Exodus 23:14), “the festival of first fruits” (Numbers 28:26), since the offerings on that day where made from the first harvest of the wheat, and ”the festival of the giving of the Torah” since Rabbinic interpretation marks the day as the day when the Torah was given, by calculating the days from the exodus from Egypt.

Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

Parshat Bechukotai (Leviticus 26:3-27:34) which we read this week, begins with one of the greatest theological riddles of the entire Torah: an account of the Blessings and Curses. God tells the People of Israel that if they observe the commandments and follow the laws, 
וְנָתַתִּ֥י גִשְׁמֵיכֶ֖ם בְּעִתָּ֑ם וְנָתְנָ֤ה הָאָ֙רֶץ֙ יְבוּלָ֔הּ וְעֵ֥ץ הַשָּׂדֶ֖ה יִתֵּ֥ן פִּרְיֽוֹ׃
I will grant your rains in their season, so that the earth shall yield its produce and the trees of the field their fruit.

Message From the President

by Ellyn Mortimer

It's time for the talk... 

Do you want a synagogue on Maui?

Do you want a full time rabbi? 

Join and donate today. 

If you want a Jewish Congregation on Maui, you need to give and join today. Not next week or month, but today. Before we continue our work on a refreshed JCM, we need to know that it will be supported...if you have a money tree , we'll gladly take that too!

I am optimistic that I am not the only person who wants a synagogue with a full-time rabbi on Maui... now is the time to step forward and show that you want one too. 

  • Join or renew your membership by June 20, and you will receive a $25 certificate to Five Palms or the JCM Judaica store.
  • Make a donation above and beyond your membership, and it will be matched up to $20,000. We have a donor who will match whatever you give... so if we can raise $20,000, we will actually get $40,000!
  • Join the 1800 Club and pledge $18/month

We are working on a warm, welcoming, community-driven, egalitarian, non-affiliated (accepting to all), vibrant, full-time conservative(ish) rabbi, executive admin, services, kosher, parties, holidays, classes, speakers, safe, beautiful, inspiring, loving shul...and it all comes with a hefty price tag. That's just reality.

Our goal is to have an administrator who along with the board and rabbi will set up and maintain a sustainable income model for our synagogue. It will always include each of us making a financial commitment, and we will not always be in the critical financial situation we are in today.  Until we get to that point, we all need to make the decision if we are willing to step up to make sure we have JCM at all. If you don't want JCM, we will stop volunteering 

For me and you, and our children, and visitors...the only egalitarian congregation on Maui...are you in, or we out?

With gratitude and aloha,

Ellyn

p.s.. My membership is up in September, and I renewed today, paid in full.

p.p.s. For those of you wondering about why we don't just ask our major donors... we need to show our major donors that our shul is worth their investment. If we all renew and grow our membership, they will see how dedicated we are in keeping JCM, and they will feel more confident joining us.

Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

This week we read Parshat Behar, one of the final readings in Leviticus(25:1-26:2). The portion begins with the description of the Shemittah, or Sabbatical year. The Torah directs us in a particular relationship to the land - and teaches us that we never truly possess it. 

שֵׁ֤שׁ שָׁנִים֙ תִּזְרַ֣ע שָׂדֶ֔ךָ וְשֵׁ֥שׁ שָׁנִ֖ים תִּזְמֹ֣ר כַּרְמֶ֑ךָ וְאָסַפְתָּ֖ אֶת־תְּבוּאָתָֽהּ׃

Six years you may sow your field and six years you may prune your vineyard and gather in the yield.

וּבַשָּׁנָ֣ה הַשְּׁבִיעִ֗ת שַׁבַּ֤ת שַׁבָּתוֹן֙ יִהְיֶ֣ה לָאָ֔רֶץ שַׁבָּ֖ת לַיהוָ֑ה שָֽׂדְךָ֙ לֹ֣א תִזְרָ֔ע וְכַרְמְךָ֖ לֹ֥א תִזְמֹֽר׃

But in the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath of complete rest, a sabbath of the LORD: you shall not sow your field or prune your vineyard. Leviticus 25:3-4.

Words of Wisdom

by Sam Shnider

This week we read Parshat Emor (Leviticus 21:1-24:23). This section continues some of the themes from the previous portion, Kedoshim (18:1-24:22) which begins with the verse “you shall be holy,” giving the people of Israel the potential for sanctity and holiness in their own lives and their relations to others, including the ethical commandment “you shall love your neighbor as yourself,” and the commandments of honoring elders, and remaining in awe of your parents. The key to an understanding of the previous portion is an understanding of the word Kadosh (“sacred” or “sanctified” ) and how our relationship to our own soul and that of others creates the sacred in our lives.

Message From the President

I feel most connected to my grandfather when I'm at temple. When I was young, I asked him why every Friday night he held his little white prater book while we sang the kiddush over the wine. I mean, we all knew it by heart! He said that our eyes should read the words, that we should commit them to our brains each wek, and that he wanted to read the words that his father had read. This has stuck with me.

The High Holidays are the other time I feel connected to him. Playing with his talllis when I was young, thumb wars during those long services, candies from his tallis bag... and then when I left home and didn't have him next to me anymore, I had the words in the siddur, the words he read just hours before at shul in Minnesota to keep me feeling close to him and my family. We were Jews together no matter where in the world we lived. We were connected in our prayer, in our Jewish intention, and in the words we read, even when we knew them by heart.

My grandfather passed away just 4 years ago at 99 years old, and now I have his little white prayer book, and I read the kiddush every Friday night, even though I know it by heart. This is part of my connection to Papa. 

I also think of him when I eat apple pie or buy a box of Sees candy nuts and chews or a million other things...but my connection to him, when I really feel him, is strongest when I'm reading the prayers. 

This is why I need this shul... and I will do everything I can to keep this congregation and this building for me, for you, for my children, for your grandchildren, for our Jewish community. 

The responsibility to keep Beit Shalom is up to all of us...

With much aloha,

Ellyn

P.S...call your mom. And if you can't, tell another mom in your life that she is doing a wonderful job. Your mom would be proud.

Words of Wisdom

This week we read Parshat Acharei Mot, Leviticus 16:1 to 18:30. The Parshah opens with a description of the service of the high priest in purifying the sanctuary and atoning for the people of Israel on the holiest of days - The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

The preface to the description of this sacred service does not designate it at all as connected with a holiday or particular time of year. Rather it is connected to the death of Aaron’s two sons (see Leviticus 10) - two young men at the peak of their lives, who were struck down for unclear reasons at the moment of the dedication of the temple.

Mahalo to Sam and Shayna for putting together a Memorial service in memory of Lori Gilbert who was killed in Poway, California on Saturday morning and in memory of those who were killed in Pittsburgh sox months ago. 

May there memories always be for a blessing.

 


Message From the President

Happy Tuesday...Today I am thinking about Rabbi Glickman. Today is his last day as official Rabbi of Beit Shalom and the Jewish Congregation of Maui, it is truly the end of an era at Beit Shalom. I moved to Maui in 1994 and sat under a pergola in Kihei while lay-leaders led services, and it was lovely. My grandfather would have demanded a swift return to MN if he knew I wasn't in a shul with a proper ark and a Rabbi, so I didn't tell him. And then Rabbi Glickman saved the day. With so much dedication, he chose to become our leader and look how far he brought us. He did not do it alone, but he was our leader. 

I can only reflect on what David  has meant to me and my family...He tutored my oldest son for his Bar Mitzvah, even though it wasn't held on Maui and he didn't get to be part of the celebration. He helped me truly understand the meaning and significance of what a bat/bar mitzvah really meant.  He held my daughter in our home and blessed her at her baby naming ceremony. Rabbi's children and mine went to Hebrew and Sunday School together and later formed a teen group that met upcountry. Rabbi Glickman called when I was getting divorced to see if I was okay and needed help. He was my rabbi, and he was my children's rabbi. His services were my connection to my grandparents and family who lived far away. Did I agree with everything? no... and that's ok, I don't have to agree with everything, and that does not take away the gifts he has given me as my rabbi. He was my rabbi, and no matter who comes as our next leader, Rabbi Glickman holds a place in Jewish life on Maui and in my heart forever.

In recent months others have also shared with me their stories of what Rabbi Glickman has meant to them. I am so glad that he has been so loved and revered in our community, and I hope that he will continue to be part of our Jewish life on Maui.

Thank you Rabbi for the Jewish community and congregation you helped create and nurture on Maui. I am grateful for you.

With love and aloha,

Ellyn

p.s. I wish Rabbi Glickman good health as he recovers from his recent surgery, and I am sure you all will join me in adding him to your good thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

Welcome to our Interim Spiritual Director...

Sam Shnider!

The JCM Board of Directors is thrilled to announce that Sam Shnider will officially be our interim spiritual leader while we conduct a search for our next Rabbi. Sam has been volunteering his time to lead services and lifecycle events and conduct classes over the past seven months, and we appreciate his commitment to our shul. He has become well known for his scholarship on the Torah and his moving sermons and commentary each week. Stop in for a Shabbat service or a Wednesday night class and say shaloha!

We look forward to having this stability in our synagogue while we search for a permanent Rabbi. 


Words of Wisdom

The seventh day of Passover (Shvi'i shel Pesach) is celebrated on Friday and Saturday, with Yizkor at the conclusion of services on Saturday.

The final days of the Passover holiday celebrate the completion of the festival of unleavened bread, (matzot), also known as Hag HaAviv (the festival of spring), see Leviticus 23:10-11:

Message From the President

Happy Tuesday,

The Beit Shalom community seder was magnificent. The shul smelled like matzoh balls and potato kugel all week thanks to the hard work of volunteers Gail and Joelle.  I also found a new tradition of whipping our neighbor with green onions while we sing Dayenu (don't knock it til you try it).  This was my first community seder, and the mix of local residents and Maui visitors was inspiring and a reminder of what being Jewish is all about...community. No matter where we are or where we go, we have a Jewish community. I was so proud to hear from our global guests how happy there were to be at our seder, how they felt welcome, and how much they love out little shul. When JCM does something right, we really do it right. 

Join us on Sunday for a discussion with Michael Harris (his bio is below) on how to talk to our friends and  greater community about Israel. 

With Aloha,

Ellyn Mortimer

Message From the President

A few thank yous this week... 

I want to thank Bob & Marla Weiner for donating the funds to upgrade our security system. We now have more motion sensors, window and door sensors, and cameras (don't worry, we're still Shomer Shabbos). We can control the alarm system remotely which will allow us to retain more control over the access to the shul. We also needed to upgrade our internet to run this new system, and that was also part of the security upgrade donation. Bob & Marla, we needed your help to make this happen, and we appreciate your care for our safety. 

I also want to thank Judith for taking the office phones. We are all volunteers at the moment, so having Judith take the phone calls so I can get the office work done and the bills paid is quite a gift. When you call the shul, and Judith answers, thank her for incredible service to Beit Shalom. She is an amazing ambassador for our shul, and we are so lucky to have her.

Whatever you are doing this weekend to celebrate Pesach, I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday...if you'll be at Beit Shalom, I'll see you there. There are still seats available, join us! My family and I look forward to celebrating with our Maui community and visitors alike. 

With Aloha,
Ellyn Mortimer

 


MOON LANDING PARTY...

What a fun night!

Toda and Mahalo Shayna Naveh 

for creating, planning, and executing the marvelous Moon Landing Party! The  actual lunar landing didn't go as planned, but that did not stop the celebration at Bet Shalom. With wonderful music, snacks, and lively conversation, we still had a glorious time. 

Shayna had an idea to this first non-religious, community event, and it was a success... thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered, and supported this wonderful evening. And thank you to Shayna.

JCM IS KOSHER FOR PASSOVER

As of Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the JCM kitchen has gone through a strict koshering process and has been converted for cooking meat in the kitchen for Passover. The kitchen doors will be locked, and there is no access. We have a few things upcoming prior to Passover, and our kosher kitchen will be strictly enforced. 

We have a variety of attendees in our shul over these next few weeks, and we are committed to our Kosher for Passover kitchen at this time. 

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter, and we will report back when it has been turned back into a Dairy Kosher kitchen.


From the President

It's time for a new election...Click here for election information. Please note we are voting on new bylaws on this upcoming ballot.

It has been so rewarding to be part of this renewal at JCM. We are bursting with classes, parties, holiday celebrations, and lots of festivities on the calendar. Be part of this exciting time in our JCM story. I have been looking for a community, I have lots of friends, but I wanted a real community. Over the past few months, I have been overwhelmed with the feeling of community with the new friends and connections I've made, and I finally feel like I have a Jewish community here...and I am so grateful. I feel so proud to be part of JCM.

We all need to make the commitment to be part of this community. My husband thinks I'm crazy for taking so much on (and maybe I am), and it's the best thing I've done this year, and I am so glad I said yes.

This congregation belongs to all of us, and it will take all of us working together (even if we disagree) to ensure that we have a congregation and community. It's for us, our children, and our future... together, we can do this!

Run for office, come to our events, donate... we need leaders, participants, and money in order for us to not just exist, but to thrive. I know times of change and transition can be unsettling, and I know we'll get to other side stronger and better for going through all this together. I will see you soon!

Aloha,

Ellyn Mortimer


Words of Wisdom

This week is the week before Passover, and this Shabbat is referred to as “Shabbat Hagadol” (The Great Shabbat). Why is this Shabbat called Shabbat Hagadol? The truth is that no one knows for certain. The naming of this Shabbat is one of those particular Jewish customs that have multiple explanations, and none that is final and authoritative.

From the President

Are you inspired? I feel inspired every day; I am in awe of all the amazing things happening around the shul. Since I've been volunteering in the office the past 6 weeks, I have been talking to, emailing with, and meeting new people. It's wonderful. Some are people who have been around forever and are just checking in...some are traveling here soon and want a hotel recommendation...some are looking a year in the future to celebrate a wedding or Bat Mitzvah with us...s ome are informing me of a yahrzeit that tearfully needs to be added. And JCM is here for all of you. We are here, we are active, we are responsive, we are busy, we are inspired...and we are here. Yes, I am inspired. Come to our events, and you'll feel it too. 

With much aloha,

Ellyn Mortimer

JCM Board President

Guest Speaker: Author Michael Harris

"Israel: Cutting Through the Rhetoric"

Sunday, April 28, 2019

4:00pm-6:00pm

Free 

Beit Shalom- open to the public

To pre-purchase his book, send $15 to his paypal account: drmikeh49@gmail.com so he knows how many to bring.

Add a note on your order that you'll see him on Maui!

So much of what we hear about Israel, whether on the news or from social media, is confusing and contradictory. But you can learn--from an activist, author, and educator-- how to better interpret what you're reading, and place it in appropriate context.
 
 

Dr. Michael Harris was one of the founders of San Francisco Voice for Israel, which is now the Bay Area chapter of StandWithUs, an international Israel education organization based in Los Angeles. He has spoken about Israel at synagogues, churches, political groups and senior citizen centers, as well as standing up for Israel against anti-Israel demonstrators on the streets of the Bay Area. He has appeared on radio and television news reports as a local spokesperson for StandWithUs and SF Voice for Israel. In his spare time, he is a pediatrician in Marin County California. The second edition of his book, ‘Winning a Debate with an Israel Hater’, was published in November 2018.

From the President

Happy Tuesday. Thank you for sticking with this long post; I have much to share.

I know there is much happening in our little shul, and I want to keep everyone aware about what is happening. The board is thinking that we are doing a good job of getting information to the community, and clearly, we are not. If there is anything that you ever want to know, just ask. I’m sure if you have the question, so does someone else. Once you ask, I can address it personally, and consider putting it in the newsletter if it seems like something others would want to know as well. We have no secrets, we volunteer on behalf of the congregation, and we can tell you just about anything you want to know.

We are getting to the end of Rabbi Glickman’s contract, and there have been questions about his status. I am not in favor of discussing an employee’s medical situation and contract/mediation negotiations…the chatter in the shul and on social media has been ugly and mean-spirited, so I want to set a few things straight. Rabbi announced at the High Holidays in 2018 that it would be his last High Holidays as Rabbi. He had surgery in the beginning of October 2018, and he was out on a sort of medical leave while still getting paid full salary and benefits. In December, he was put on full medical leave while still getting paid his full salary and benefits. A volunteer committee was formed to work with the admin assistant to make sure his admin duties were taken care of while Sam Shnider and other volunteers stepped in to take care of spiritual and religious duties. In January, we received letters from his doctors letting us know that he could return to work with stipulations to aid in his ongoing recovery. We were not confidant that he would be able to do his duties with those stipulations. We continued to pay his full salary and benefits. We wrote an addendum in February so that Rabbi could attend to the end of life care and funeral of a beloved congregant. 

The Rabbi is continuing to be paid his full salary and benefits until the end of his contract April 30. We are currently in mediation with Rabbi Glickman over other issues relating to his contract that we both agree can be disclosed in more detail once we have a signed agreement. 

We are getting to the end of an era. Rabbi Glickman has been a tremendous asset to our community, and he has led us to this amazing time in our story. He has been our leader, our confidante, our friend, our rabbi, our moral compass, our spiritual guide, our teacher, and most of all, he has been our Rabbi. We need to acknowledge that there is an ending happening in our community. Not everyone will be happy about this ending, and not everything will go perfectly during this transition. We have been in a time of transition for many months, and it is going to continue. We all have the opportunity to decide how we want to deal with this transition and the upcoming changes. We hope you will stay with us and help us in this exciting and uncertain time. If you are having a hard time accepting the ending of this chapter, I understand, and I want you to stay with us. 

The board is working with a consultant from CLAL on the East Coast at no charge (for now anyway) on how to proceed forward. We will be working with Elan on conducting some interviews with members of our community to find out what our community wants and what we can provide. This is all a process, and successful change doesn’t happen overnight. Once we work through this time of transition, we will have a new beginning. 

Not everything will be different though. We will still be a JCM where all are welcome and prayer is open to everyone who wants to participate. We will be a fully kosher and Shomer Shabbos facility. We will hold community seders and holiday celebrations. We will remain unaffiliated so that all our needs will be met. 

Please know that the board will share whatever you want to know. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll find it for you. We have nothing to hide, we want to be transparent, and we don’t know how we’re doing unless we hear from you. 

I look forward to working together in this transition and celebrating our new beginning.

With much aloha,

Ellyn Mortimer

JCM Board President

Words of Wisdom

This week we begin Vayikra, the third book of the Torah, the book of Leviticus. Vayikra begins with a call, as Rashi explains:

 

AND HE CALLED UNTO MOSES — This implies that the Voice went on and reached his (Moses’s) ears only but all the other Israelites did not hear it).

 

The call is the moment of beckoning. There is a need for explanation here, because we have completed one book, and begun another. There is a pause, of indeterminate time, between the end of the book of Shemot (Exodus), when the pillar of cloud descends upon the sanctuary, and the revelations of this book, Vayikra(Leviticus). Moses could not enter the sanctuary because of the cloud (Exodus 40:35), so a call must precede his entry.

 

But the call is also the expression of affection, the sweet intimate call of love. It is the call of the Angel to Abraham to prevent the sacrifice of his child, "Abraham, Abraham" (Genesis 22:11), or the call to the sleeping child Samuel in Shiloh, "Samuel, Samuel" - the whispering voice to this young boy who has not yet discovered he is a prophet (I Samuel 3:1-10). It is a voice that is only heard to its intended one.

 

The Voice, however, is also the powerful booming voice: 

 

What does it mean by the Voice? It was the Voice that is so minutely described in Psalms, (29:4, 5) “The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars. But if this be so (that it was a very powerful voice), why does Scripture state, “[and the Lord spoke to him] from the appointed tent” (מאהל מועד and does not state באהל מועד)? Because it intends to tell us that the Voice broke off and that it was heard only in the tent).

 

Thus, the voice has a double nature: inside the tent, it is omnipotent, thunderous; outside of the tent, it is not heard to anyone. It drops off. It reaches only Moses alone, as a still silent whisper, to awaken him and call him inwards. Once he enters the tent, it is the Voice of majesty, the Voice of the all powerful one. 

 

Is it only Moses who hears the Voice? The entire people look to Moses; but Moses's wish, his message, to Joshua his most prized student is "Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all God's people were prophets, and that the God would place his spirit upon them!" (Numbers 11:29). Moses wishes for everyone to hear the Voice. 

 

Because it is so. Some have a moment of experiencing the booming voice of the creator of the World, the Voice that breaketh cedars. But each one of us has a moment of the still small voice, the voice heard only from within, that utters our name to us, and calls to come forth, to act in the service of the most high. May we always be guided by that voice, and seek it out.
