Rabbi Baruch HaLevi - Chagenu Is Coming
                         Purim is a strange holiday on many levels. The story is terrifying and yet it is the most joy-
                         ous day of the year. The message is dark and disturbing and yet it has become the defini-
                         tive children’s holiday. To commemorate our victory over narrowly averted genocide we
                         dress in drag, get drunk and have a carnival... strange holiday indeed.
                         Strangest of all is that it is a holiday which is all about achdut - unity and brotherhood, and
                         yet, it is celebrated so parochially. Every synagogue seems to do their own thing, having
                         their own celebrations and Purim carnival. Whereas logistical challenges obviously take us
                         our own ways on the High Holy Days and halachic divides on other holy days, what keeps
                         us apart on Purim - Reform, Conservative or Orthodox Purim carnival goldfish?
                          The truth is that there is hardly a reason for separate megillah readings, certainly no need
for separate Purim celebrations or carnivals. A holiday as communal as Purim and somehow Jewish communities
can’t get it together to join forces and celebrate in one place, as one community doing it once and doing it right.
It is a major statement on the divided Jewish community in the world today and one which we can no longer af-
ford to perpetuate.
This past Purim, however, on the North Shore we took a major step with a test run at a communal Purim carni-
val. Instead of going it alone, each of us doing our own thing, we created something greater than the sum of our
parts. For anyone who participated at the JCC, it was a fantastic day. Although many of us have had successful
Purim celebrations over the past years, this one was not merely bigger, it was better, as it was about community.
And I’m truly proud of CSH for coming up with this idea, inviting others to participate and making it work (Jed
Filler and Ann Navon, in particular). Although it took a tremendous amount of effort, it was worth it. It reminded
us of what we can accomplish when we come together. It proved that we can have first-rate holiday celebrations
when we unite. We can save money and resources in the process. Most of all, we can reclaim a sense of communi-
ty, which is what Purim and being Jewish is really all about. It was the beginning of a new direction.This, however,
can not be the end.
Indeed, it is only the beginning. As I write, the North Shore Rabbinic Association, along with the J.C.C. and
Cohen Hillel, with and under the auspices of Federation, are heading out in a bold, new, brave direction - selected
shared holy day programming called “Chagenu,” which literally means “our holidays.” As far as I know, it’s the first
of its kind.

Starting this Shavuot (first day only, and Sukkot first day in the fall, as well) we are looking at different types of
tefilah (prayer) experiences, Torah (study) opportunities and, of course, coming together to eat, drink, schmooze,
even play (in the JCC gym and pool). It is our hope, and my deep belief, that this effort will not only reinvigorate
our holidays, it will not only strengthen our respective synagogues and bolster our Jewish institutions, it will
redefine the nature of this Jewish community and reclaim our sense of achdut - brother/sisterhood, which is
what it is all about.
My friends, it has been a tough few years on the Jewish North Shore and beyond. We’ve known our share of
collective tzuris, but the tides are shifting. As it says in our Torah, “there was evening; there was morning - yom
echad;” day always follows night, light always shatters the dark and we are starting to catch a glimpse of our sun-
rise once again. And it will come, in no small way, IF AND ONLY IF, we come together as the brothers and sisters
we were meant to be. When we can pray together, study together, eat together, or at the very least celebrate our
Judaism together it, indeed, will be yom echad - a new day.
Thank you to those who made our Purim celebration a success.
Thank you to those synagogues and Jewish institutions who are heading into the unknown with us on this new
Thank you for opening your mind and your heart to a new direction, new possibilities and a renewed sense of
achdut. We’re not there yet, but if Purim is any indication, we are on our way to a new day in this community and
hopefully beyond.

Shalom - Peace
Rabbi B
Cantor Emil Berkovits - The Countdown Has Started
                    We have all, I hope, celebrated Passover with relatives and/or friends as it is custom-
                    ary. Now as we continue with our calendar we find that it is quite common to move
                    from a celebratory mode to a more somber one. Is this what we do? We laugh and
                    then we cry? Well not exactly. But Passover, which is a joyous time, is followed by a
                    more serious period. We know it as a period of Counting the Omer, and in many circles
                    it is a period of mourning. Whether it coincides with Rabbi Akiva’s 12,000 to 24,000
                    (depending on which version you read) disciples reportedly were killed, some histori-
                    ans have reason to believe that they died as part of Bar Kochba’s last-ditch rebellion
                    against Rome, which culminated in the Fall of Betar in the year 135. Then there are
                    those who believe that it was because of the Crusaders, inspired by the call of Pope
Urban II, who obliterated entire Jewish communities all along the Rhine River in 1096.

But whatever the reason, we also have built in, within that period of time, days that are supposed to be
joyous. One of those days is Lag B’Omer, meaning 33rd day of (counting the) Omer. This day is observed
throughout Jewish communities with a variety of celebrations, such as family picnics, partake in weddings,
and in Israel, there is dancing and singing, along with bonfires. Many parents wait until their son is three
years old before cutting his hair, and on the Lag B’Omer of his third year, they cut the boy’s hair for the
very first time.

There is also an agricultural root to this period of time, which refers to measures of grain that were brought
to the Temple beginning on the 2nd day of Passover and culminating on Shavuot, the 50th day. Some of
the customs associated with Shavuot display remnants of the agricultural tradition. Synagogues are often
decorated beautifully with flowers and foliage. And to conclude this seven week period it was custom-
ary to prolong the last day by beginning the evening service much later than usual in order to be certain
that the entire 49 days were completed. Finally, there is a long-standing traditional custom of “Tikkun Leyl
Shavuot” (preparation for Shavuot), an evening and sometimes the entire night of study which included
excerpts from Jewish sacred writings.

Jed Filler, MAJCS, Education Director
                  Shalom Chaverim:

                  This is the time when we usually write about Pesach. Sometimes we talk about slavery, some-
                  times freedom, and sometimes we explore the rituals surrounding this holiday – which is
                  celebrated more than any other by Jews around the world.

                  I write this having just returned from the National Association of Temple Educators confer-
                  ence in Washington, D.C., where we explored ideas of justice, social action, and religious
                  freedom, to name a few. It was an inspiring and interesting few days where many of those
ideas that seem so different synthesized nicely into some common themes.

       I. Legal documents reveal our values. As Jews, we are lucky to have a significant tradition that includes
       both oral and written parts. For many years, our oral tradition was just that – spoken and memorized
       from one generation to the next. Eventually it was codified and we call it the Talmud. Our written
       tradition, the Torah, completes the duo. These documents contain an unusual mix of narrative (history/
       story), religious law (the nitty gritty of being Jewish), and communal law (how to get along with each
       other). Taken separately, they each make sense – but combined into a single religious document they
       seem like a shortcut to confusion. Yet this combination says something important about Jews – that we
       value all of these things – in concert! One is not more important than another.

       II. Stories are important. Just as rules and laws are important, so are stories. Our stories give us our
       context, our history, our sense of tradition and can be a source of guidance. I had the opportunity to
       visit the Native American Museum, and the experience was overwhelming (and wonderful). The way
       that they blend their daily lives, their relationships with each other and the world around them into a
       sense of holiness and awe is amazing. I was captured by a display of Native American creation stories,
       and the intensely personal way they viewed their own creation. They were put in this place, at this time,
       for good reason. While they knew there was a world around them, it wasn’t as ‘real’ as their own place
       was. I was amazed to learn that when they traveled, and then returned home (even as a tribe migrating),
       they engaged in important purification rituals as a requirement to re-entering their home. There were so
       many Jewish connections to these ideas that my head was spinning!

       III. Action creates change. Gathering together with a group of people to ‘do’ a thing not only accom-
       plishes that task, but changes the people engaged in it. By working with others to achieve a common
       goal, we learn to be empowered, to gain and give trust, to rely on others, and to share our greatest gifts
       with one another.

All of these things are embodied in our celebration of Pesach. We gather together to ‘relive’ the redemption of
our ancestors from slavery, we share stories that connect us to one another, and we make promises to try and
bring the gift of freedom to more people next year.

Our text tells us that we, the Hebrew slaves, were all standing at the edge of the Sea of Reeds (i.e. the Red
Sea), with the Egyptians closing from behind, and God promising to part the waters once we step into them.
We were paralyzed by fear – we didn’t move. Until, that is, Nachshon took one step, and another, and another
until the water was in his mouth and traveling up his nose. It was at this point that we joined together and all
stepped into the water, creating the moment that God chose to part the waters, redeeming us from slavery and
giving us the gift of freedom. Passover takes all the various (and numerous) parts of our lives and weaves them
together into a tapestry where we celebrate and proclaim, “Bashanah Haba’ah B’Yerushalayim – Next year in
Jerusalem.” Ziesen Pesach.

               Ma’ot Hittin - Food/Finances For Our Jewish Brothers & Sisters
                                  Here On The North Shore

                                            It’s not too late...

Every year at this time Jews around the world traditionally begin preparing for Pesach. Long before the
first guest sits down at our seder meal, or the kids start complaining around our seder tables crying out,
“When do we eat,” Jews have been cooking and cleaning and cleaning and cooking for days, even for
weeks. We get our physical homes and our spiritual homes in order with all of our necessary preparations
which is probably one reason this is such a deeply rewarding and meaningful time on our calendar.

But what truly adds to this holiday is that it is not only about us and our own private, spiritual journey. It
is not simply about our family or even just the local Jewish communities in which we live. Rather, one of
the holiest aspects of any Jewish holiday, but Pesach in particular, is how it connects us to Jews across
the country, across the world, across the denominational divides, across all of the boundaries and barri-
ers which all too often keep us apart. And perhaps there is no better expression of this than our ancient
custom of Ma’ot Hittin.

Ma’ot Hittin, literally “money for wheat” are the charitable contributions Jewish communities have been
soliciting on behalf of those who can not afford matzah or Kosher for Pesach foods. This custom has
ranged from communities baking matzah for the Jews who could not afford such a luxury, to a special
Passover charity tax where Jewish citizens were entitled to Passover assistance of free wheat so they
could bake their own matzah, to the more recent practice of simply receiving funds to purchase proper
Passover supplies. Whatever the form Ma’ot Hittin has taken it is simply part and parcel of both any de-
cent Jewish community and any authentic and complete Passover experience. No Pesach is completely
kosher without this mitzvah, and this mitzvah is upon us once again.

This year JFS has, once again, asked The North Shore Rabbinic Association to turn to their respective
synagogues and membership to each contribute $500 per synagogue. This modest sum should be suf-
ficient to provide Passover meals for those in need. So, please make your donation now through me so
that I can pool our resources and send them in together. Last year we were the single largest contributing
synagogue and I believe we will be so this year as well.

Together we can not only fulfill the mitzvah of Ma’ot Hittin, we will not only provide Passover meals to
our Jewish brothers and sisters, we can and will uphold the Jewish maxim: Kol yisrael arevim zeh b’zeh
– every Jew is responsible for one another. This is the message of Pesach. This is the message of Ma’ot
Hittin. This what we will do to make this message a reality.

You can make your contributions online at www.RabbiB.com or send a check to CSH in care of Rabbi’s
Discretionary Fund (make a note in the memo for Ma’ot Hittin).

B’Shalom and I’m proud of you for doing this,

Rabbi B

to do within the Chesed Committee!

                                 for april
Early Mystic Minyan
As it says in the Mishnah, the early mystics would gather together and sit for an hour before even attempting to for-
mally engage in prayer. So too at CSH we will offer the Early Mystic Minyan as an option for practitioners of medita-
tion to come and sit as we begin to open up the space of our Sanctuary, Shabbat and of our hearts in the early quiet
of hours before the crowds arrive. There will be minimal, if any, instruction for the first fifteen minutes. It is a time to
gather one’s self and one’s thoughts together through individual prayer without words.
Renewal Minyan
The Renewal Minyan is an attempted synthesis of keva – the traditional structure of tefilah (Jewish prayers) with
kavanah – spiritual depth within the prayer itself. During the Renewal Minyan we are committed to traversing the
Shabbat morning tefilot structure (Birkot HaShachar, P’seukei D’Zimrah, Shachrit) up until the Torah Service, but not
necessarily davening (praying) each and every prayer along the way. Our aim, again, is to strike a balance between
breadth and depth, and within a one hour period that is a fine balance to be sure.
Torah Yoga
A full-body Shabbat experience. Torah yoga incorporates yoga practice with a Shabbat theme.
Nosh and Drash
Grab a cup of coffee and nosh at the Boker Tov Café, and join the guest rabbi or scholar for a Torah-based Shabbat
learning experience.

Herb, the official “Papparazi” for all congregational events, has been a member of the former Temple Beth
El, now Congregation Shirat Hayam, since 1974. Herb comes to CSH early every morning to make sure
there is hot coffee for the daily morning minyan, he took pictures every day during the recent construction
to document the process for our archives and has sounded the shofar on the High Holy Days for many years.
His involvement in congregational life including Brotherhood, High Holy Days, Shabbat, twice daily minyan,
and more events than we can count, make him an invaluable member of the Shirat Hayam family.

A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Fine Arts in Photography, Herb is known
for his involvement in the Swampscott and Marblehead Art Associations, and is the photo historian of the
Marblehead Festival of the Arts. In his professional career, he has worked in advertising, sports, weddings
and bar mitzvahs.

Herb’s biggest joy is his family: his wife Jan of blessed memory, his children, Stefanie and Bob Gladstone,
Alan and Donna Goldberg, and 4 grandsons, Jason, Jordan, Jake and Alex.

RSVP by April 16 to: csh@shirathayam.org or 781-599-8005. Donations in Herb’s honor can be made to:
