                            Program Personnel Planning Purim
    What do the Megillah, Isaac Hayes and bagpipes all have in common? Find out for yourself when you join in the
    celebration of Purim at Beth Sholom.

    On Sunday, March 12th the festivities will begin with our Purim Carnival from 10AM until 1:00PM. In addition
    to the traditional carnival offerings, we will have a variety of activities that will appeal to all ages. There will be a
    Moonwalk for the kids, a Cake Walk (with cakes baked by our Sisterhood), a Shalach Manot workshop where you
    can make and fill your own gift bags and a Crafts Area for kids of all ages. All of these activities will, no doubt,
    make you hungry so Cantor Julian and Friends will be serving up hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixins’. Of
    course, no meal would be complete without hamantaschen.

    The pandemonium continues on Monday, March 13th. A spaghetti / pizza dinner will be held from 5:15PM-6:00PM
    to start the evening off right. The cost for dinner is only $5.00 per person with a $25.00 maximum per family.
    Immediately following dinner you can witness, or participate in, our Costume Parade and Contest. The parade will
    lead us into the sanctuary and to the main event of the evening, a Musical Megillah reading. We are pleased to an-
    nounce that The Bo-Keys will provide musical accompaniment for the telling of the Purim story. The Bo-Keys are the
    back-up band for Isaac Hayes and are each accomplished musicians in their own right. What about those bagpipes?
    You will have to attend to find out!

    The evening will conclude with Mincha davening beginning at approximately at 7:30PM. A Traditional Megillah
    Reading will follow minyan at 8:00PM.

    On Tuesday, March 14th, Shacharit minyan will begin at 7:00AM followed by the second Megillah reading. A light
    breakfast, with hamantaschen will conclude our Purim celebrations.

    Thank you to the following congregants for their help in planning this awesome event: Michelle Less, Marsha Bender,
    Myra Alperin, Lauren Dome, Kimberly Greenberg, Rabbi Aaron, Sharona Rubinstein and Cantor Julian.

                           Why should Jews Care About Living Wage Legislation?

   A discussion of Living Wage initiatives is, admittedly, political. What place does such a discussion have within
   the Rabbi’s column? Isn’t this stuff that I should attend to “on my own time” and “in my own space”? The
   answer, I believe, hinges upon the relationship between the political, ethical, religious, personal, and commu-
   nal. Another way to approach the intersection of these realms is to ask: What does Jewish tradition have to
   say about a Living Wage?
   Our tradition doesn’t explicitly address the particulars of what constitutes a minimum standard of the wages
   an ethical employer must pay. But we can find several relevant passages in the Torah, as well as within Rab-
   binic literature. These passages demonstrate that our traditions advocate on behalf of workers.
   Let’s take a quick look at a familiar tale...Back in Genesis [chapters 30 and 31] Laban and his nephew
   Jacob are locked in a multi-faceted conflict. Beneath the many layers of family drama, this is a story about
   the relationship between a boss and his employee. This is about chicanery. Laban is a thoroughly dishonest
   employer, always ready to squeeze more out of the shepherd who is tending his flocks. Various rabbinic com-
   mentators focus upon Laban’s manipulation of Jacob. Let’s listen in...
   Laban: Is it because you are my brother, that you should work for me for free? Name your wages.
   Jacob: I’ll work for you for seven years in exchange for your younger daughter’s hand in marriage.
   Laban: It is better for me to give her to you than to give her to another man. Live with me.

   Now fast forward to the morning after, when Jacob learns that he has been tricked...
   Jacob: What have you done to me? I worked for you in return for Rachel! Why did you deceive me?
   Laban: We don’t do it that way around here, giving away the younger one before the older one. Work another
   seven years, and we’ll give you this one, too.
   Commentary: We don’t do it that way around here, giving away the younger one before the older one - Laban
   is cynically claiming that there are prevailing local standards which outweigh any claims that he has been
   dishonest. Notice how Laban hides behind an artificial “we” - he avoids personal responsibility as an ethical
   Jewish Law speaks directly to ethical standards that should shape the relation between the employer and the
   workers.American Jewish workers suffered from terrible exploitation in the sweatshops of bygone eras. Un-
   fortunately, the exploitation of workers did not go away. Employers (yes, even some Jewish ones) have locked
   out workers who challenge poor working conditions, and those who attempt to organize their fellow workers.
   Bottom Line: These are Jewish issues, and they are important. It is for these reasons that it is more than
   appropriate for me to write about Living Wage in the Kol Sholom. It is spiritually vital for our kehilla to be
   continually educated and challenged on these matters.
   I invite you to visit, and to consider
   the incredibly strong connection American Jews have felt with social justice concerns. The beautiful words of
   the haftarah that are chanted each Shabbat and holiday - are not just words. They are often militant social
   critiques offered by our prophets. Those words made some people angry. The moral charge to support those
   who are vulnerable is something that should inspire us to action, to renewed commitment, to pride in our
   being heirs to this tradition.

                               (a Beth Sholom Religious School fundraiser)
Kol Sholom                                           March 2006                                                 
                                                 Smart Giving
                                   Support Beth Sholom with Appreciated Securities

   A gift of appreciated securities might be right for you if:
       • You're considering an outright gift to the synagogue
       • You're holding stocks that have risen in value
       • You want to maximize your charitable deduction
   The most common appreciated asset, and the easiest to donate, is marketable stocks and bonds. The IRS allows you to
   deduct the full, fair market value of appreciated assets that you gift to the synagogue, and avoid capital gains liability
   on the transfer. This means that you can leverage a larger donation if you use an appreciated asset to make your gift
   instead of cash.

   How can you give more with appreciated stock vs. cash?

   Suppose you purchased 2,000 shares of Company X stock at $10 per share and it is currently worth $50 per share.
   You have been considering making a generous gift to Beth Sholom and now you are trying to decide the best strategy.
   In addition to receiving an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gift, giving appreciated securities
   allows the donor to avoid the capital gain that would have been realized had they sold the asset instead. Assume 35%
   federal income tax and 15% capital gains tax.
                                                     Giving Cash                                Giving Stock
   Charitable Gift                                     $100,000                                   $100,000
   Capital Gains Tax Saved                                 $0                                      $12,000
   Income Tax Savings                                   $35,000                                    $35,000
   Net Cost of Gift to You                              $65,000                                    $53,000
   This illustration shows that by giving appreciated securities, the net cost to you is $12,000 less and you have
   essentially made a $100,000 gift to Beth Sholom with the $20,000 that you originally used to purchase the stock!

   There are some other important things to understand when dealing with gifts of stock. Your charitable deduction is the
   average of the high and low prices for the stock on the date of the transfer to Beth Sholom. If the high bid was $80
   and the low was $70 on the day you made your gift, your deduction will be $75 per share. Your gift is complete on the
   day the shares reach our account. Also important to note are the IRS rules regarding the deductibility of appreciated
   assets. You can deduct gifts of appreciated assets up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Thus, if your AGI
   will be $100,000 this year, you will be able to deduct up to $30,000 in gifts of stock. A gift in excess of the 30 percent
   amount is not wasted, however, because the IRS allows you to carry forward excess deductions through the five tax
   years following the year of your gift.

   Note that the IRS allows cash gifts to be deducted up to 50 percent of adjusted gross income. Therefore, the deduction
   for a large gift of appreciated assets could take longer to claim than the deduction for the same gift made in cash. But
   if the donated assets had a small cost basis, they could still be more tax-efficient to use than cash.
   If you would like to explore ways that you can support Beth Sholom with a gift of appreciated securities pleased
   contact Rose Morrison at 747-0743 or Laura Linder at the Jewish Foundation of Memphis 374-0400.

  Don’t sell the stock first! It must be transferred into an account owned by the synagogue or the Jewish
  Foundation of Memphis before it’s sold. Even though you give Beth Sholom the proceeds as a charitable gift,
  the IRS will impose capital gains tax on your sale, wiping out the benefits of this arrangement.

      Beth Sholom to Co-Host Acclaimed Play
  Beth Sholom along with the JCC will co-host a performance of the play “Over the
  River and Through the Woods” at the Germantown Community Theatre on Wednesday,
  April 26 at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $25 and include a Wine and Cheese Party afterwards
  with the Cast. Beth Sholom benefits 100% from all ticket sales excluding the ½ the
  cost of the wine and cheese.

  Rarely does a stage play come along that is perfectly suited for a mature audience,
  contains no profanity, political, religious or social trauma, yet speaks of universal
  themes of family, growing up, separation and love. “Over the River and Through the
  Woods” does it, and
  identifies with audiences, leaving them shaking with laughter and apt to shed a tear or
  two. When it was produced in 2002, it played to full houses in a six week run,
  becoming one of the largest audience totals in Circuit Playhouse recent memory.
  Christopher Blank, in his very positive review in the Commercial Appeal June
  15, 2002, headlined his article, “PLAY IS LIKE PERFECT PHOTO ALBUM
  ‘ABSORBING’COMEDIC GEM” Chris Davis of the Memphis Flyer called it “A RARE
  SAPPY.” The play won “Ostrander” awards for it’s cast as Best Ensemble of the year.

  Please contact the synagogue office for information on ticket purchases, and plan to be
  part of an engaging evening that will benefit Beth Sholom.

                             News From Religious School -
                          A Framework for Excellence School
  Our school is preparing for a big day on March 4th. The Religious School, along with children from the entire
  congregation, will be participating in a Youth Service at Mincha/Ma’ariv/Havdalah at 5:30pm on March 4th.
  This service will be entirely youth led with no adults involved in coordinating the activity on the bimah. High
  School students will be gabbis, Rabbis and service leaders. Younger children, toddler through 7th grade, are
  assigned multiple parts by grade level so everyone present at the event can participate. A special treat is in
  store with a Parasha Players performance by our 3rd-7th grade Shabbat Zone students, choreographed by
  Sharona Rubinstein. During February, all of our students learned about the Havdalah Service and practiced
  their parts in preparation for this event.

  In our weekday Hebrew School program, Rabbi Rubinstein and Cantor Julian and working with the 3rd
  through 7th grade students on a Biblical Genealogy Project. The children are conducting Biblical detective
  work to create the family tree of the book of Genesis, from Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to the fam-
  ily of Jacob migrating to Egypt. A genealogy chart will be created using magnetic “name tags” and white
  boards. When the project is completed later this semester, the students will have accomplished a remark-
  able feat and will have gained invaluable, in-depth knowledge of Torah.

  Of course, Hebrew School also studied Tu B’Shevat during the month of February. Sharon Prager worked with
  the Hebrew School students on a special craft project for the holiday. They also had a formal Tu B’Shevat
  Seder on Tuesday, February 14th. Shabbat Zone celebrated Tu B’Shevat on February 18th with a tasting of
  many fine fruit and nut delicacies.

  Our Celebration of Jewish Learning has been scheduled for Monday evening, May 1st. At this event, we
  graduate our seniors (a large group this year), honor our 3rd grade students (who have begun their Hebrew
  study this year), pay tribute to our Religious School teachers, induct students into the Rabbi Arie Becker Honor
  Society, give special student awards, and have some special presentations in store from our students. The
  entire congregation is invited so please mark your calendars.

  The students and staff of Beth Sholom Religious School would like to say a big thank you to the Judaica Shop
  committee. Led by the marketing expertise of Margie Steinberg, the shop has become quite profitable and
  has helped to fund many of the programs addressed in this article. Harold Steinberg, Esther Roberts and
  Richie Roberts provide support to Margie in this endeavor. We encourage our congregants to support this
  Religious School fundraiser by shopping at the Beth Sholom Judaica Shop.
