Ma’asim Tovim has a few ways for you to show that you care this winter
holiday season. Please join Temple Israel in supporting these two great projects:
Nikki’s Blankets 2011 gives blankets to homeless people in the
Central Florida area. Please make a donation this month of new

and gifts, gift cards or non-perishable food; for details and gift
ideas please see below.
Drop donations in any of our TI collection bins in the lobby, office and Social
Hall. Monetary donations may be handed in to the office.
Greetings Fellow Congregants!
Sisterhood is going strong so far this year. The bus trip to South Florida was lots of fun! Do you think we should do it again
next year? My vote is absolutely yes.
We try and try and still there are errors in the Calendar Book. We will be publishing a correction sheet that can be easily stapled
in the back of your book. If you noticed an error, please email me at email@example.com and I will include your correction. It
will also include the newest members of the synagogue. There are many members who haven't picked up their books. I hope
some of you can find the time to get them when you are at the synagogue for another activity. If not, we will have to mail them
and it is expensive. Please try to pick yours up, it would be great!
The Book and Movie Club is really off to a great start! 12 women showed up at my house to discuss "The Help".
It was very interesting to hear our members recall the days in the 50's and 60's with their memories. It was a lively
discussion. Look on the TI website for future books, movies and the dates for the events.
This year the Women's League for Conservative Judaism has launched a project called Hiddur Mitzvot. Our Sisterhood was
given special attention in this project because of our service to our community and the League. Hiddur Mitzvot is an innovative
way to enhance the observance of mitzvot. Through programs, projects, creative arts and educational materials all members will
find guidance to renew their commitment to mitzvot. Our Sisterhood will do a special outreach project for Chanukah and again
in the Spring. This is a great way for our members to increase or enhance their acts of loving kindness.
I know everyone is wondering about the gift shop and if it will be open. We are definitely having a huge clearance sale and
Chanukah sale for both adults and the children on December 11th. Before and after the annual meeting, we will be selling
merchandise for the adults. Also, that same Sunday, we will have a separate sale for the kids to shop. We will also be
introducing a registry for Bar/Bat Mitzvah students for gifts they would like to have. You may contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in signing up for the registry. We are also thinking about an exchange party for
judaica we all have to trade with one another. Some of us have duplicate religious objects and it would be fun to exchange with
each other for something new, right? I'll have more information about it soon. So, look for flyers for the big sale and clearance
at synagogue. If you have any questions or want to help us please call me at 407-539-1815.
Thanks so much,

TEMPLE ISRAEL LIBRARY NEWS
Tawil, Hayim, and Bernard Schneider. Crown of Aleppo: The Mystery of the Oldest Hebrew Bible
Codex. Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 2010.
In her review in the Forward of The Crown of Aleppo, Tamar Yellin, herself a noted author
writes, “The idea of discovering the original manuscript of the Bible — even supposing such
a thing ever existed — is an impossible fantasy, but the aura surrounding the Aleppo Codex
has something of the same power”. Completed around 930 C.E., the codex was, until the
finding of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest-known handwritten copy of the Hebrew
Scriptures in existence. In their succinct exposition of the book’s history, "Crown of Aleppo,"
Hayim Tawil and Bernard Schneider also make the case for its being the most
authoritative….The Crown, as it became known, was the supreme achievement of the
Masoretic scribes of Tiberias, Shlomo ben Buya’a, who produced the text, and Aharon ben
Asher, who notated it...The history of the Crown is a very complicated one, and the authors do well to present
it in a way that is both coherent and suspenseful. For the story involves a good deal of suspense and mystery,
possible theft, forgery, smuggling and other skulduggery, mixed in with the minutiae of scholarship and the
overall tragedy of the tale. From Tiberias, the Crown traveled to Jerusalem and, at the Sack of Jerusalem by
the Crusaders, to Fostat in Egypt, where it was studied by Maimonides and given his imprimatur of perfection.
Then, in 1479, it turned up in Aleppo — no one knows how — where it was to remain for nearly 500 years…
How that sojourn in Syria ended, with the pogrom and attack on the Great Synagogue in which the Crown was
apparently lost, is sadly well known. “ The mystery of its recovery and reconstruction is yours to enjoy in this
beautifully-written book, as is the original which is now available online. This book is on our library shelves in
the Bible Section.
If you need assistance in finding a book, or obtaining a blue Library Patron Card, please contact your Librarian,
Sylvia Schafer, at 407-388-9933, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Library is open for your convenience on
Sundays from 10:30 am - 12:00 noon and other times by appointment.

A Yummy International Buffet
This year Oy Veygas will feature a heavy cocktail buffet, but not your standard cheese and
crackers and fruit. The idea was to keep everyone in the Social Hall instead of sitting in the
double classroom with a “sit down dinner”. For the sushi lover, we have a wide variety of
vegetarian and fish sushi, catered from Fuji Sushi. For those who do not eat sushi, there are
many other options created from TI Catering. We will have a lovely pasta dish with several
sauces, roasted vegetables, marinated mozzarella, spanacopita, hummus, brie, wrapped
asparagus and of course dessert and coffee. There will be a TI Cash bar. Please come and
join us for a fun evening and invite your friends. The entire evening benefits OUR temple.
Casino- style games at Oy Veygas
We have added another horse race to the exciting and popular video horse racing. A total of 4
races! Name your horses, $12 a piece, by December 11th. No need to be in attendance for the
horse naming but it is so much fun to cheer your filly on! Another addition this year is the
Trivia Wheel. Rabbi Neely, Harry Rein, Stuart Farb, and Howie Oser are working on the
Temple Israel and Judaic trivia. Find out how much you know about our “history”. Impress
your friends and win big. There will be random trivia also.
The Samuel Meitin Black Jack Tournament returns. Can you beat last year’s winner
Mark Kluger? Come and try your luck. Don’t forget the entire evening benefits Temple Israel.
Adult B’nai Mitzvah Program
Our Adult B’nai Mitzvah program will cover approximately 18 months of study. Anyone is
welcome to participate in any part of the study even if they do not wish to be in the culminating
ceremony. Non-members are welcome to study, but cannot be part of the culminating ceremony.

The first couple weeks will involve intense aleph-bet learning. After that we will progress to
fluency practice. The last few months of the course will emphasize techniques to UNDERSTAND
the Hebrew of prayer at least. It won’t prepare you much for ordering dinner in Tel Aviv, but the
course will help you pray in Hebrew with more understanding and feeling.
