                                  A Different Kind of Hanukkah Message
                                    On a Thursday afternoon a few weeks ago, I was happily surprised by an unexpected guest in my study. I
                               was in between taking pictures in the Sanctuary with Bar and Bat Mitzvah families. Appearing in my study was a
                               gentleman in a Roman collar who I hadn’t seen in about five years. I was happy to see him and I immediately left
                               my chair to greet him with a warm hug. I was most happy to see Father Glenn Mattis.
                                    Father Mattis was the Episcopal Priest at the Church of the Holy Nativity in Wrightstown at the corner of
                               Second Street Pike and 413. A number of years ago, he left this church and became the Pastor of an Episcopal
                               Church in the Mayfair Section of Philadelphia. We had last seen each other at a funeral. A member of our
                               congregation who is a Jew by choice lost his mother. I attended the funeral service of his Episcopalian mother. It
                               just so happened that Father Mattis was officiating at the service. Though sadly at a funeral, I was happy to see
                               him that day as I was when he appeared in my office.
                                    I reminded Father Mattis of my involvement in his installation at his Mayfair Church some years ago. If I ever
                               compose my favorite stories of my years in the Rabbinate, this would surely be one of them. Father Mattis invited
                               all of his colleagues from our Ministerium in Northampton, Southampton, and Wrightstown to attend his
                               installation. As it turned out, I was the only one who attended. The program consisted of a formal processional.
Slated right behind the Alter boy carrying a very large cross were to be the visiting clergy followed by Episcopalian clergy and finally Father
Mattis. I was the only visiting clergy so there I was right behind the cross. Woody Allen should have been there to film this scene. When I
was seated, all of the visiting persons of note were introduced. The Assistant Bishop was introduced and he got a warm round of applause.
When I was introduced I got a very enthusiastic round of applause. Stated differently, I got the biggest applause of the night. It wasn’t
because of anything I did or said. I just walked in and was sitting there. The congregation, which was from my vantage point of a kid growing
up in Oxford Circle, on the other side of the tracks, was evidently so touched to have a Rabbi with them, their applause was heartfelt and
considerable.
     Father Mattis then related an occasion that I also recalled quite well. When his church in Wrightstown was built and dedicated, I
participated in the dedication service. As the members of the church walked inside, I was honored to read Psalm 121. This was an event
both of us would not forget.
     When Father Mattis came into my study, he told me that the purpose of his visit was to get a Siddur. He asked me if he was pronouncing
it correctly. I said he was. He had been asked to get a Siddur for a Jewish inmate at the Bucks County Prison. He and his wife recently
retired from their respective church positions. In addition to holding an important position in the Episcopalian diocese which keeps him busy,
he has become a part time chaplain at the Bucks County Correction Center. There, he met this Jewish inmate.
     Father Mattis thanked me for the gift I gave him a number of years ago in his understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian dilemma. While
these incidents I describe above are etched in my memory as if they happened yesterday, I didn’t recall to what he was referring. Evidently,
one of our ministerium meetings followed on the heels of some abusive act by Israeli citizens towards certain Palestinians. The discussion
evidently turned into a criticism of Israel and its treatment of its neighbors. I said, as he recalled, that the stark difference between Israel and
her neighbors is that Israel is a country of laws and that the perpetrators of these inexcusable acts would be duly prosecuted for their
offenses. Israelis, in general, were not cheering these acts. For me, this was another case of coming to Israel’s defense. For Father Mattis,
as he described it, this helped him to see the whole situation in a new light from that day on.
     We spoke about Father John Gabin who was a dear friend during his tenure as assistant Pastor of St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic
Church in Richboro. Father Gabin attended Seder in our home and was with us at our table when I was honored at our synagogue’s
twenty-fifth anniversary celebration. Janie and I postponed going away on vacation one year so I could attend Father Gabin’s installation as
the Senior Pastor of St. Dominic’s on Frankford Avenue. As it turned out, Fathers Gabin and Mattis were again in the same Ministerium in
their new location.
     A few days before Father Mattis came into my study, I happened to see Reverends Carl Kleis and Barbara Fillette who are both retired
from their positions as Pastors of the North and Southampton Reform Church. Reverend Kleis was Pastor of the Church when I came to
town. Reverend Fillette was his assistant and succeeded him in the position. I was happy to see Reverend Kleis looking so well and happy
to see Reverend Fillette enjoying her retirement. On three occasions, she invited me to deliver the sermon as part of their Sunday morning
service. I recall each time sitting on a beautiful chair on their pulpit containing a needlepoint Star of David on the seat. The congregation was
always warm and appreciative.
     To round out the picture, one evening between seeing the Reverends and Father Mattis’s visit, I happened to bump into Father Dennis
Gill in the pharmacy. Father Gill was the Assistant Pastor of Our Lady of Good Council in Southampton and also active in our ministerium.
He then spent some years in Rome pursuing advanced degrees. I mentioned on Yom Kippur that I was invited to speak at a Mass at Holy
Redeemer Hospital. It was Father Gill who had initially extended the invitation. Though an aisle in Walgreens isn't the most conducive
atmosphere, it was also a warm reunion.
     On most years, my December Dove Tale article deals with some variation on the theme of Hanukkah and its message of how we must
maintain our separate identity as Jews in a society in which we are a small minority. I believe that as much this year as any proceeding
years. These encounters with colleagues reminded me how much I appreciated and valued these relationships with my Christian
counterparts. While we are celebrating Hanukkah, our Christian neighbors are, of course, celebrating Christmas. It is, as they say, a time of
Peace on earth and good will towards all men. We Jews, surely join in those sentiments though I would say good will towards all people.
     Encounters between committed Jews and Christians do not dilute our dedication to our own faith communities. If however, we start from
a position of weak allegiance, then our commitment can indeed become even more compromised, boundaries blurred and people lost.
     We are surely happy for our neighbors and friends celebrating one of the most important holidays on their religious calendar. We can be
reminded especially at this season of the year of relationships we have and cherish with those of other faiths. We wish them a Merry
Christmas as they wish us a Happy Hanukkah. I like that more than all of us getting lost in a generic Happy Holidays.
     And so to our entire Ohev Shalom family, Happy Hanukkah. I hope to be in touch during Hanukkah from Israel during our upcoming
Ohev Shalom Israel trip.
     Hag Hanukkah Sameach.
                                                       Shalom,      Rabbi
                                                                         3
                                        The Dove Tale
                 Director of Congregational Learning - Rabbi Daniel Aronson
                             Dear Friends,
                                 If I were to ask you what you love about being Jewish, chances are that you would recall celebrations with
                             your families, special occasions at the synagogue, activities that sparked your interest during Hebrew school or
                             youth group, or any number of memories that evoke feelings of joy and fellowship. Why? Our Jewish identities
                             are based on such positive Jewish memories.
                                 One formative memory for me is of a contest I entered at my synagogue when I was in the fourth or fifth
                             grade. One year, all the children were asked to create hanukiyot, Hanukkah menorahs, that would be displayed
                             during our congregation’s Hanukkah celebration and that would be judged by the rabbi and the school director.
                             My hanukiah depicted a scene of a lighthouse on the rocky coast of Maine. I was proud of my creation and proud
                             to have won an award for it that night. This experience figures prominently in the formation of my Jewish identity:
                             Judaism has always provided me with creative outlets for my imagination. (P.S. Nearly thirty-five years later, I
                             saw a hanukiah in a gift shop that looked like a knock-off of the one I had made as a kid! I couldn’t
                             believe how similar it was and wondered if the artist had actually been there at our Hanukkah celebration so
many years earlier.)
    It should be obvious why I bring this up at this time. Hanukkah begins on the 25th of Kislev, corresponding to December 21 in the secular
calendar. We’d be hard pressed to find any Jew anywhere who doesn’t have at least one positive Jewish memory connected to Hanukkah,
whether it be a memory of candles, of chocolate gelt, of latkes or games of dreydl or of course, gifts. Let’s face it: this is one of those times of
the year when it’s really fun to be a Jew.
    At Ohev, we strive as a community to create positive – and substantive – Jewish experiences for all the members of our congregation,
from the youngest to the oldest. This month, we will have our own festive Hanukkah celebration with a candle-lighting ceremony, an acrobat
and even a hanukiah contest, as well as some surprises! In addition to this, we will have Family Fun Day for the Homeless and a
congregational trip to Israel, and many of our USY-ers will attend International Convention in Washington, DC. Each of these activities will
provide the fertile ground upon which Jewish memories may grow and flourish.
    As I like to say, though, what happens at Ohev should not stay at Ohev. Jewish memories must be created at home as well. Parents
have a special obligation to create positive Jewish memories for their children, to create situations and opportunities for their children to
experience and remember the joy of being Jewish. When accompanied by experiences of deep meaning and a feeling of connection to
family, community and the Jewish people, such memories can provide a foundation for Jewish living upon which our children will build lives
and households informed and shaped by Jewish traditions and values.
    It is, indeed, an honor and a privilege for me to be your partner in making memories for you and your family. And in partnering with you, I
too, continue to gather the memories that make me who I am as a Jew. I suspect I’ll gather many such memories during this season of light.
Thank you, in advance, for these most precious gifts.
                                                   Bivracha,

                              The Musical December Dilemma
                                   While Rabbis often find the need to address the “December Dilemma” from the pulpit regarding being
                              Jewish during the Christmas season, those of us who spend our lives in the musical world often face the issue as
                              well. How do we approach the overwhelming dominance of non-Jewish music in our environment during the
                              upcoming season between Thanksgiving and late December?
     Paul’s Photo                  During my years in junior high school, and high school choirs, the winter musical program usually contained
                              6-8 musical numbers for us to practice. One of the pieces usually was related to Chanukah (mostly Ma’oz Tzur in
                              Hebrew and Rock of Ages in English. Songs like "I have a little Dreidel" and English versions of Hebrew Songs
                              Like "Mi Yimalel "(Who Can Retell) might be good for Hebrew School and Synagogue life but don’t instill much
                              Jewish pride in the arts at this time of year.
                                   Fortunately that has changed. Artist and Composer, Craig Taubman, has put together a collection of
                              Chanukkah songs for the family to enjoy that includes modern arrangements of songs like the above mentioned
                              pieces as well as original compositions by some late 20th century Musicians. Safam recorded “Judah Maccabee”
in the 70’s about a young boy growing up dreaming of being one of his childhood heroes like Judah Maccabee. Lenny Soloman of Schlock
Rock adapted the words of our Hanukkah prayer “Hanerot Halalu" to Richie Valens "La Bamba" under the title “ My My My MY Menorah” I
also have Ma’oz Tzur as played by the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra.
     December is time to make sure to include the gifts of culture. Whether the gifts be of music, art, or books, make sure your Jewish
recipients keep the Channukkah lights burning for all eight days. I also hope that some day the world will figure out how to spell this holiday
in English. After writing this I am starting to run out of variations.

                                                           B’Shalom,
                                                                    Cantor

Effective with this issue, the synagogue calendar will no longer appear in the monthly Dove Tale. Instead, the new “Online Calendar” on
the synagogue website will be the central focus for synagogue events. With events changing quickly as they do from time to time, a monthly
printed calendar can no longer be responsive enough to satisfy synagogue needs. The website link for the online calendar is:

                                Dear Friends,

                               Each year in December our Social Action Committee hosts Family Fun Day. It is a day where our Ohev
                           Shalom Family opens up our synagogue and welcomes homeless families from Bucks County for a day of fun
                           activities, gifts and food. Many volunteers help out beforehand and during the day of the event to make sure that
                           our visitors enjoy the time that they spend with us. Our USY’ers are there to help staff events and everyone
                           pitches in. If you have never attended Family Fun Day, make this the year that you start. Call the office to get in
                           touch with the committee and volunteer your time on Sunday, December 7th and take part in this very worthwhile
                           day.

                                 Our outdoor Hanukkah Menorah lighting is on Sunday, December 21st. Join us as we stand in front of our
                           building on Second Street Pike singing songs and lighting the 1st candle. That day is also when the Ohev Shalom
                           Israel Trip leaves for what will be an unbelievable trip that is guaranteed to leave everyone who goes with a
                           lifetime of memories. I wish all who are going a fabulous trip.

    Happy Hanukkah and a Happy (secular) New Year!


                                                       B’Shalom,

                                                                    Arlene




                        Message from our Executive Director - Fred Poritsky
                                   This has been a busy year at Ohev and December is no exception. We have Family Fun Day to help those
                              less fortunate than us on Sunday December 7, followed closely by Rock Shabbat on Friday December 12. This is
                              always a favorite activity of many of our members. On December 21, we have our Hanukkah outdoor menorah
                              lighting and party and the start of the Ohev Shalom Israel trip. This is in addition to so many other wonderful
                              events and programs that take place on a daily basis here.
                                   A new law makes it easier to donate to Ohev Shalom. Before you consider doing this, please consult your tax
                              advisor. Congress approved and President Bush signed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. The
                              act creates an extraordinary opportunity to make tax-free rollover gifts from traditional or Roth IRAs to charity.
                                   The law provides that, in each of the years 2008 and 2009, an owner of a traditional or Roth IRA may instruct
                              the trustee to distribute directly to Ohev Shalom up to $100,000 without counting the distribution as taxable
                              income. And, the added benefit is that the distribution will count towards the IRA owner's required minimum
                              distribution. To make sure that your gift will qualify for the tax-free treatment you must satisfy a few regulations:
                              ♦ You must be 70 ½ years old or older
                              ♦ The transfer from your IRA must go directly from your IRA to Ohev Shalom.
♦ The gift cannot exceed $100,000 in 2008 or 2009
♦ The gift must be an outright gift*
    *Transfers of IRA gifts to donor advised funds, supporting organizations, charitable gift annuities, or charitable remainder trusts do not
    qualify. The gift is not eligible for an additional charitable income tax deduction.
♦ IRA withdrawals are generally treated as taxable income. Before this law was passed, if a donor wanted to use their IRA for a
   contribution, they would have had to take the withdrawal, declare the income and then take the charitable contribution to offset the
   income from the IRA.
    This new law makes giving to Ohev Shalom from your traditional or Roth IRA easier. To make a 2008 gift from an IRA, donors should
contact their IRA custodian as soon as possible preferably before receiving any required minimum distributions. Transfers for 2008must be
completed by December 31, 2008. Transfers for 2009must be completed by December 31, 2009. We can also accept gifts of stock as
payment of dues or for contributions. Please call me if you have any questions at 215-322-9595, extension 55 or e-mail me at
fporitsky@ohev.org.
    We are looking for volunteers in many areas to help Ohev grow and deliver all of the services that make our synagogue valued in the
Bucks County Jewish Community. Please contact me at fporitsky@ohev.org or 215-322-9595, extension 55 for more information about
where we could use your help and expertise. I look forward to speaking with you.
                                         B’Shalom and Happy Hanukkah.
                                                                          Fred

                       Director of Early Education - Lori-An Penchansky
                                  Last week two of the kindergarten students got off the school bus and walked into my office – a normal
                             occurrence. There are many days that one student stays in the office and helps "buzz" the door until another
                             friend walks in, and then walks upstairs with his family. On a normal day the second student will continue
                             walking right up to the classroom with his teachers. But this was not a normal day. The first student said she
                             wasn't feeling well – and it was apparent that she needed some TLC. Her friend said he wanted to stay in the
                             office, which he did, and he proceeded to watch his friend's every movement. I checked again and asked the
                             young boy if he wanted to go up and he emphatically said no, he wanted to wait.
                                   At that point the young girl looked up at me and said "He is my friend. He worries about me and wants me
                             to be ok. That is why we love each other."
                                  Wow, I thought. This was such a simple comment, yet deep and meaningful at the same time. For a
                             5-year old, friendship is simple. You are nice to me and I will be your friend. I am your friend so I care about
                             you. Friendship equates to love.
                                  The beginning stages of friendship are evident even in our infant center: the babies begin to seek each other
out, to be where other babies are playing. As they mature into toddlers, parallel play becomes the primary focus of the young children –
they play next to and begin to play with each other. As they progress into preschoolers, their social skills grow and they choose their
friends.
     I am very proud that at Ohev Shalom Early Education Center, we foster such beautiful friendships. I know these children will be friends,
and will understand the true meaning of friendship, for life.

dealing with cancer. Even after my Bat Mitzvah, I hope to continue
volunteering. I have a very special Torah portion, because my mom
read the same portion on her Bat Mitzvah.

    Should you come into the library, you may notice that some small changes have been made.
    Thanks to Mark Kolber and Jerry Gottesman, we have many new DVDs including children’s bible stories and movies shown relatively
recently on the big screen. Jerry has been giving the library movies that were shown at Hazak programs, so if you had to miss out on the
showing, come by your library to borrow it.
    Since some of the schools have a study unit on the Holocaust, I have made it very easy to locate material by making one entire
bookcase dedicated to Holocaust material. We have lots on Anne Frank; we have videos and DVDs, teen level books, and books for the
adult reader, both nonfiction and fiction.
    I have begun to weed out duplicates because we are limited in space. Often I am asked if the library accepts donations. My response is
that we LOVE donations, but we cannot accept additional duplicates, no textbooks or books in Yiddish or Hebrew, and that we do not want
outdated books on "modern Israel". If you have books, (Jewish content or Jewish authors) which you want to donate, e-mail me at
sfeld@ohev.org with the title and author of the book and I will gladly accept books that we do not have.
Come in. I can’t wait to talk books with you.                      Soni Feld

                                                        A MOTHER DIES

    A parent passes away or some other relative or a friend and whom do you talk to? After shiva when everyone goes
home and life returns to “normal” who is there for you? Possibly other siblings or a parent, the Rabbi, of course, and the
Cantor, but I found that most of all were my friends.
    My mother passed away in September and though I have been a member of Ohev and on the Board of the Men’s Club
for many years, I could never have expected the outpouring of friends at both the service at Goldstein’s and at my home. If
this sounds like a public thank you to all of you, it is, but it is more then that. I hope this will be a wake up call for all of you
who do not feel the need to get involved.
    You may think that between running the kids around, work schedules, the stress of the “normal” day there is no time to
get involved in anything else, if that is what you believe you are WRONG! You may think I already have plenty of friends
and don’t have enough time to spend with the friends I now have, but again, you’d be WRONG! It is not a zero sum game,
where you can only have so many friends and so you have to be selective. You find time to go shopping or watch that ball
game, this is more important.
    Here is where organizations like Men’s Club, Sisterhood, Hazak (and other groups, talk to Fred Poritsky) come in. There
are others, of course, but here WE all have a special bond being from the same “tribe”. Our kids do or have gone to school
here, they have been Bar or Bat Mitzvah’d here, we have celebrated our simchas and shared our more difficult moments
here, these are all bonds that tie us together. Many of us have made friends on the various Israel trips and I suggest if you
can afford the time and money, to go with the Rabbi and Janie on a trip to Israel, you will have the time of your life.
    Yes, this is also a plug for Men’s Club specifically, but more then that it is a call for each of you reading this to join one of
our organizations, sign your child up for USY or any of the other youth groups and get them started being comfortable in the
synagogue and with other Jewish children. It will pay off as they go to high school and college and move away. Explain to
them that they can have friends in many different facets of their lives and that is what keeps life interesting and exciting.
    There are no words to thank all of you for the support you showed my father, my brothers and me during this difficult
time, but I can assure you that if and when a problem or tragedy happens in your life, when you belong to one of our groups,
you will never have to face it alone.
