                                  Celebrating the Mitzvah of T'fillin
                             Join TBS Men’s Club for World Wide Wrap
Sunday, February 6, 2011

I am very proud of Temple Beth Sholom Men’s Club for enriching its program with significant
events highlighting essential Mitzvot of Jewish life. On Sunday, February 6, our Men’s Club will
link us with congregations all over the globe by presenting World Wide Wrap.

World Wide Wrap is the creation of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, with which TBS' club is
proudly affiliated. In attempting to familiarize modern Jews with the Mitzvah of T'fillin, FJMC clubs
throughout North America and all over the world have dedicated the morning of Sunday, February
6, for special services and programs highlighting the significance of T'fillin and the procedure for
donning and wrapping them. Preparations for this unique event have been underway for many
months, with materials distributed globally over the Internet (check out
and locally in hundreds of congregations. A satellite television hook-up will link various World
Wide Wrap participants, and extensive media coverage is expected as well.

This project is a sequel to the popular educational video Ties That Bind, which FJMC produced
several years ago and which TBS has utilized successfully in our Family Education class for Bar/
Bat Mitzvah students and their parents. Last year about this time, we gave an excellent
demonstration on T'fillin to that class, and this year we are pleased to offer everyone the
opportunity to learn more about T'fillin and to share the experience of wearing them during
Shacharit prayers.

The Mitzvah of T'fillin is so central in Judaism that the Torah explicitly mentions it in 4 different
places. By far the best known of those passages follows directly after Sh'ma Yisrael in Deut. 6:
"You shall bind them for a sign upon your arm and they shall be a symbol between your eyes (that
is, on the forehead)." That paragraph, along with the other 3 citations (2 from Ex. 13 and another
from Deut. 11), is hand-written by a Scribe on parchment, exactly like a Torah Scroll or a Mezuzah,
and then placed into leather containers called the Shel Yad (T'fillin of the arm) and the Shel Rosh
(T'fillin of the head).
These scriptures in their respective containers are then bound to the body by leather straps called
R'tzuot prior to our daily Shacharit prayers.

T'fillin are a powerful symbol for the traditional Jew, formally dedicating our physical efforts
(through the Shel Yad) and our mental prowess (through the Shel Rosh) to God's service at the
beginning of each new day. T'fillin are worn on weekdays only, because Shabbat is itself called ot
('sign, symbol') in the Torah, and our daily creativity is suspended on Shabbat in favor of a sense
of being and appreciation of life and the world as they are.

There is a misconception that somehow T'fillin are "for men only." While it is true that legally
Jewish women are exempt from putting on T'fillin, since the Mitzvah requires a tangible act and is
time-bound, it is simply not true that women are excluded or precluded in Judaism from fulfilling
this Mitzvah if they choose to do so. Indeed, medieval Jewish history records that Rashi's
daughters (11C. France) all put on T'fillin daily. Thus, in modern egalitarian congregations like our
own, women are welcome to don T'fillin. Even in some Modern Orthodox circles, where women
have begun to conduct their own Minyanim, the Mitzvah of T'fillin is taken very seriously and many
women wear them.

Thus, I would especially underscore Men’s Club's invitation for women to join us for World Wide

It is time for all of us to strengthen our personal and collective Jewish observance by rededicating
ourselves to the beautiful and essential Mitzvah of T'fillin. Attending and participating in Men’s
Club's World Wide Wrap on February 6 would be a wonderful way to begin.

The Honorable Gabrielle Giffords
1661 N. Swan, Suite 112
Tucson, AZ 85712

In Gabby’s name,

To her family, friends and the citizens of the State of Arizona:

We, of Temple Beth Sholom, in Brevard County, Florida, wish to convey our deepest
sympathies for the tragedy that has brought you unspeakable pain and anguish these
past two weeks. Our synagogue has added Gabby’s name, and in her name, all the
others who have suffered injury and loss of life at the hand of this gunman, to our
Prayers for Healing.

We offer Prayers for Healing (Misheberach) each time we gather to worship during
weekday Minyan and weekend Shabbat services. In our prayers, we ask God to send
complete healing of body and spirit to all among us who are in pain. In addition, we
have meditations to aid us in asking God to bless those who are in our prayers and in
need of His blessing. One of the paragraphs we read has particular significance when
we think of Gabby. It reads as follows: “To the pursuers of justice, send wisdom and
courage; To the seekers of peace, send vision and resolve.”

Our congregation wishes Gabby a speedy recovery and appreciates her dedication in
service to the State of Arizona and the United States of America.

R'fuah Sh'leimah,

Temple Beth Sholom
5995 North Wickham Road
Melbourne, Florida 32940

Our community comes together when tragedy strikes. We acknowledge the imperfect
world that surrounds us and try to make sense of what is happening. Our synagogue is
a place of refuge and a source of strength and comfort.

                  Message from the Executive Director
                        #13 – FEBRUARY, 2011
Before I get to business, permit me to digress and write a few thoughts more appropriate to my days as an officer of
the Temple rather than as an employee. I may do this from time-to-time…

When I first became involved at TBS, it was from a background without a day of Jewish Communal service. I
served in every capacity, often overlapping at the same time, from Committee positions, to Treasurer to President.
I always believed that once one passed through the doors of entrance here, one set aside the nastiness,
brutishness and shortness of daily life and entered a place of hope, caring, understanding and love for one’s fellow
member of the world’s community (whether Jewish or not). Most of the time, my beliefs have been realized, and
the joy I get out of being here, serving our community, is truly a privilege. But as in real life, that is not always the
case. As we move through a new secular year, please know that whatever difficult days may arise, we owe it to
care about each other, to be kind to each other and to make this place a haven for the best humanity has to offer. I
am confident that this can happen. Difficult days should make us all selfless and caring. Whether sadness or
tragedy, be there for your fellow person. And then be there all the other days too.
Now, to business.

We are in the middle of one of our significant fundraisers, our annual Purim Basket “Mishloach Manot” project. I
hope every member takes a look at the list that was mailed to you, and selects as many recipients as possible (and
perhaps a few more, for those who might not be able to participate this year). I have been told that many people
make side agreements with friends and relatives, “You don’t send to me, I won’t send to you,” or that “this is
nothing but a popularity contest or a fundraiser.”

The Purim Basket Project that we started about 13 or 14 years ago is unquestionably a fundraiser, a major one.
And yes, we make more when multiple baskets are ordered for the same individual. But in many years, most of our
members received a basket, and in some years (the first few that the program existed) everyone got one. The list
of donors and recipients is always private. THE BENEFIT OF THE PROGRAM, BEYOND RAISING MONEY FOR
MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY. Please send a gift to honor a friend or a member of your family, and know that
the reward is multi-faceted.

This year’s basket will have a “carnival theme” in recognition of Purim, with wonderful new items (to be displayed in
the lobby) as well as the great Hamantashen which we will get from a kosher bakery in South Florida (call me if you
want a private order of Hamantashen, I will arrange pick-up and delivery for you).

Tax letters have been sent out – please note that your 2010 donations are recognized on two separate pieces of
paper, if you made payments during both the first half AND second half of the calendar year. Please ADD the totals
of both sheets together, for the benefit of your annual tax preparation and filing. The reason: We operate on a
fiscal year (July 1-June 30). This past July 1, we changed to a new, better and more user friendly bookkeeping
software package. So if you made payments from January-June, 2010, you have received a statement reflecting
those payments. If you sent us funds between July-December, 2010, you have received a separate statement
about those payments.

                                      Ritual Matters

We wish to thank and acknowledge all who have led services, read Torah or Haftarah, or delivered D'var
Torah in the last month. Not to diminish the participation of those who regularly take an active part in
services, we give a special recognition to Donna Gross, daughter of Dr. Stan and Anita Levy, for her
"guest appearance" Haftarah, and to the wonderful women of Sisterhood for their extremely well done
total Shabbat.
One of our members, Michael Rich, has joined the Ritual Committee to head a special program. Our
goal is to have Torah and Haftarah read through the year by as many people as possible, and to organize
2 groups who will be main readers, rotating within the group. At present, for example, we have 7
Haftarah readers, so even without others who we hope will join in, each will read once a month or so.
Our hope is that each Haftarah will be read by someone different. Claim your Bar/Bat Mitzvah portion,
or just choose one. Portions can be shared. Young adults are eligible through a program of Men's Club to
receive their own Yad.
On the Torah side we know there are readers among us and we would love to have your participation. If
enough interest is expressed, we will start a class to teach Torah reading (Haftarah too).
If you are interested, please contact Michael.
Finally, you all know that our Temple family has had loss last month. A Taharah, ritual burial
preparation, was desired in one instance and our men's Chevrah Kadishah was there to perform
this important mitzvah. My thanks to Dr. Craig Deligdish for leading the effort, and to Dr. Stan Levy,
Dr. Scott Seminer and Mayer Garber, for their participation. We are so fortunate to have the people and
the ability to render such a service, and we have a women's Chevrah also. Both groups would welcome
knowing that others are available if needed. Please contact me if you are interested.
Ritual matters. Shalom.

The Sisterhood had a wonderful Sisterhood Shabbat on January 7 and 8. Thank you to all who
participated. The Kiddish was well received with new menu items that had a Middle Eastern flair!
Thanks to Barbara Marcus who headed up the event. You did a wonderful job getting women
involved. I believe Barbara has already started working on next year's Sisterhood Shabbat which
will be on January 6-7, 2012.

Thanks so much to Dr. Elliot Kornberg for his program about Jews in Cuba. It is really said to think

It was quite interesting. Thank you to all who attended.

TBS activities: 
        There is a tremendous need for a walkway between the main building and the education 
        building social hall.  The Men’s Club proposes to adopt this project and raise money to finance 
        the construction.  Participation in the Federation of Jewish Men’s Club raffle is one way to kick 
        start this effort.  Our Men’s Club gets to keep 40% of all proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets.  
        Tickets will be mailed out to all TBS members in mid‐January and must be returned by March

        is the Yom Ha Shoah day of remembrance.  Profits from this project will also be applied toward 
        the walkway construction.

     Temple Beth Sholom would like to invite members of our Temple and the
     entire community to contact us if you are interested in forming a “JEWISH
     BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP” for our community. In light of
     the tragedies that have befallen so many wonderful families over the years,
     from any of the Jewish organizations, it would be nice to have a group of
     people who can be called on to counsel, assist or simply comfort others.
     Ideally, one group made up of people from our entire community, would
     best serve this goal. Help design this program, please help make it happen.
     Call Alan Rosenberg at 254-6333 or 288-3700 if you are interested.

   every child have the opportunity to read themselves to sleep? There are over 800 children
(newborn to 17) in the foster care system in our county. Please help provide these children with
                                         these luxuries.
                                 Please donate new pajamas and books
                             to assure these children a great night’s sleep.
                                             Donations are being collected
                                           now through February 4th, 2011.

Come, be a part of our Sister City Program!
Sister City Program is entering it's 4th year and it is certainly an effort that has been very productive in its three years of activity.
It has been praised by citizens, government officials, other community groups, political leaders, our international counterparts,
etc, for the positive contributions which have been made in this short period of time. In case you are wondering, the City of
Cocoa is a Sister City to Beit Shemesh, Israel. We had 40 men, women and children here recently. What a wonderful
                                                                                    Ron Shelton, Director of Sister City Program
Because of what Sister City Program stands for and is effectively doing in our community and in Israel, I am committing an
