                                       Dr. Richard J. Margolis
The Bible is silent about how our ancestors came to be enslaved in ancient Egypt. An interesting
insight is provided in the Midrash by Rabbi Eliezer, who rendered the verse Vaya'avidu Mitzrayim
et B'nei Yisrael b'farech (Ex. 1:13) as though the final word were divided in half, reading b'feh
rach, "with sweet speech, with propaganda." Thus, he reworked the original import of the passage
into "The Egyptians enslaved the Israelites through propaganda."
There is a lot more here than a mere play on words, because there must have been a gradual
process of enslavement, otherwise the Israelites would surely have had the good sense to leave
Egypt and maintain their freedom. Do you know how chefs boil frogs for those who eat them?
Were they to throw them into boiling water, the frogs would sense the danger and jump out of the
pot. So they throw them into cold water and gradually raise the temperature until the frogs
acclimate themselves to the rising temperature and eventually boil to death. So, too, did the
Pharaoh entice our ancestors into bondage by propaganda, gradually convincing them to make
Egypt their permanent home, invest in the country, rear their families and consider themselves an
integral part of Egypt. Ultimately, the Israelites relaxed their defenses and suffered hundreds of
years of dehumanizing bondage.
Unfortunately, public relations has never been one of the strong points of the Jewish People.
Because of our self-perception as a unique minority people, we have generally been impervious to
the way the rest of the world perceives us, often to our detriment. For nearly two millenia, the
malicious Christian calumny of blaming "The Jews" for the Romans' crucifixion of Jesus has led to
the canard of Jews being "Christ killers." The persecutions, deportations and expulsions, crusades,
Inquisition and subsequent ghettoization and pogroms we suffered in Christian countries are the
direct consequences of this original propaganda of the early church.
Toward the end of the 19th century, a book emerged from the secret police in Czarist Russia
entitled The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This patent forgery purports to expose an
international Jewish conspiracy to take over the world. It still circulates to this day, leading to the
anomaly of anti-semitism in countries like Japan and India, which have never had more than a
handful of Jews. The myth has become so well accepted that "everyone knows" that Jews control
the banks, the media, the press and just about everything else. We should only be as powerful and
well-organized as our enemies make us out to be!
The tragedy of the Holocaust can be directly traced to Nazi propaganda, blaming the Jews for
Germany's failed adventure in World War I, the desperate state of Germany's post-war economy,
and the collapse of the Weimar Republic. "Der Stuermer" led to Auschwitz, and the world looked
on as 6 million of our people were murdered.
Modern Israel has not successfully countered Arab propaganda, leaving Israel at a political
disadvantage in any peace process. Can you remember back to June of 1967? No one spoke then

of "occupied territories" or of Israel "victimizing" the hapless Palestinians. In fact, Israel's
declared strategy at the time was to hold the territories (except the Golan Heights and East
Jerusalem, which were incorporated into Israel) and ultimately to return Gaza to Egypt and the
West Bank to Jordan in return for recognition of the Jewish State and for peace. Well, today Israel
has peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, but the equation has changed to include the Palestinians,
whose propaganda has convinced the world that "the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people"
are an integral element in a "comprehensive Middle East peace." Israel has been successfully
portrayed as an "occupier" and a "victimizer," all because of the power of 4 decades of
There is one more "big lie" threatening Judaism and the Jewish People today, and that is the myth
that one can become a Christian and still retain one's Jewish identity at the same time. Hebrew
Christianity has propagandized itself into "Messianic Judaism" and inveigled over 300,000
American Jews and at least 10,000 Israelis into believing that accepting Jesus Christ as their
personal savior is really a "completed" or "fulfilled" form of Judaism.
There is immense power in propaganda, and we Jews need to harness that power for our benefit
and never again allow it to enslave us.

"And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt; therefore
shall ye observe this day throughout your generation by an ordinance forever"
                                                                                                                                Exodus 12:17

Passover, the festival designated as the "Season at our Freedom" begins on the 15th day of Nisan and is observed
for eight days. It commemorates the emancipation of the Jewish people from Egyptian bondage and their exodus
from Egypt. For more than three thousand years, we have observed Passover with thanksgiving, because it marks
the end of a dark period of slavery. On the first Passover freedom was born. Today that concept is man's most
precious heritage.
The observance and laws of Passover are found throughout the Bible. The festival of Passover is known by
three names each with its own significant meaning; Hag ha-Matzot,. Feast at the Unleavened Bread (Ex. 23:15)
the Biblical designation in commemoration of the actual exodus; Hag ha-Pesah, Festival of the Paschal Offering
(Ibid, 34, 25), the reference to the paschal lamb; and Zaman Herutanu,. Season of Our Freedom. which marks the
establishment of the children of Israel as a free and independent people.
                           The number four plays a significant role in the Haggadah and the seder ceremonials.
                           There an the four cups of wine, four questions, four sons, four expressions of redemption
                           - I will bring you out ... I will deliver you ... I will redeem you ... I will take you ... (Ex. 6, 6-
7). Four special foods - pesah (roasted bone), matzah, maror and haroset - in mentioned throughout the service.
Nisan, the month in which Passover falls, has a special status. With the exception of the day preceding Passover,
fasting is not permitted during the entire month. The Talmud tells, as that the Tabernacle was erected on the first
of Nisan and a representative of each of the twelve tribes offered a sacrifice on the first twelve days of the month.
Each of these days was considered a festival. The Saturday preceding Passover is known as Shabbat ha-Godel
the Great Sabbath. The Talmud states that thirty days before Passover, we are to inquire about its laws. It was the
practice on the preceding Sabbath, for Jews to assemble to hear a discourse on the regulations concerning the
festival delivered by the one who was thought to be the greatest authority; hence the day was called the Great
Passover is also known as the "Feast of Unleavened Bread." Every phase of the observance is fastidiously carried
out - the ritual of cleaning the home, of destroying leaven,. as well as the preparation of the haroset,. maror and
roasted bone - all symbols of the experiences of the children of Israel in Egypt The house is fragrant with sweet
nostalgic odors of the traditional holiday foods. The seder table is beautifully set with shining candlesticks, the
Haggadah and wine goblet at each place, the seder plate before the master of the house and the cup for the
prophet Elijah.
In a systematic way the Talmud set up an Order of Service for the seder. The family and guests go through the
time-honored and fondly-remembered ritual; the kiddush,. the asking of the Four Questions, the recital of Israel's
woes and of God's might,. the Hallel, the delicious first Pesah meal and finally, the merry songs enjoyed by young
and old alike, Thus the seder is the retelling of the exodus story in a dramatic pageant enacted by the family and
guests around a festive table,
Passover holds out the hope for Israel's redemption end for the future deliverance at mankind. This two-fold
characteristic of Passover, the Passover of years ago and the Passover of the future, is expressed in poetical
insertions In the festival prayers and by the Haggadah,. the basis of the seder service.

February 2008

One no longer has to live in a Jewish community in order to have accesses to kosher for Passover products. Many products
that are under kashrut supervision all year long are supervised for Passover as well, and are available to consumers. These are
products that do not contain hametz and therefore do not require a change in ingredients for Passover. In addition for those
living far from stores that carry a full array of kosher for Passover products, shopping on the Internet enables one to order
kosher for Passover food and have it shipped to their homes. In cases where it is difficult to get all the necessary products for
Passover, there are some general rules that can make it possible to acquire certain items, without Passover certification, before
Passover and use it on Passover when all other methods fail. A list of these types of food is attached.

A problem that has arisen is the fact that the food industry has changed very rapidly, and sometimes items that appear to be
clear of hametz may in fact contain some hametz. For example, a producer of frozen vegetables may use the same line in the
factory to make pasta and vegetables, and a therefore a package of frozen vegetables may contain not only traces of hametz,
but actual pieces of hametz. While this is theoretically possible, nevertheless the amount of hametz will probably be less than
one sixtieth of the total. Additionally, if pasta was not on the list of ingredients and still was in the package, the manufacturer
could be penalized by the FDA. Nevertheless it is possible. However it would be a case of miuta, a minority of the cases, and
the normative rule is ain hosheshim lemi 'uta - we do not take the minority of cases into consideration when making a decision.
Therefore, if the product cannot be acquired by mail, phone or Internet, then it is permissible to follow the guidelines below.
Those who wish to be strict and not accept this position are free to do so.

Rabbi Mayer Rabinowitz
On behalf of the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards

The Torah prohibits the ownership of hametz (leaven) during Pesah. Therefore, we arrange for the sale of the hametz to a non-
Jew. The transfer, mekhirat hametz, is accomplished by appointing an agent, usually the rabbi, to handle the sale. It is valid
and legal transfer of ownership. At the end of the holiday, the agent arranges for the reversion of ownership of the now-
permitted hametz. If ownership of the hametz was not transferred before the holiday, the use of this hametz is prohibited after
the holiday as well (hametz she-avar alav ha-Pesah) .

Since the Torah prohibits the eating of hametz during Pesah, and since many common foods contain some
admixture of hametz, guidance is necessary when shopping and preparing for Pesah.

During the eight days of Pesah, hametz cannot lose its identity in an admixture. Therefore, the minutest amount of hametz
renders the whole admixture hametz, and its use on Pesah is prohibited. However, during the rest of the year, hametz follows
the normal rules of admixture, i.e., it loses its identity in an admixture of one part hametz and sixty parts of non-hametz (batel
be-shishim). This affords us the opportunity to differentiate between foods purchased before and during Pesah.

What follows is a general guideline. However, your rabbi should be consulted when any doubt arises. Kosher le-Pesah labels
that do not bear the name of a rabbi or one of the recognized symbols of rabbinic supervision, or which are not integral to the
package, should not be used without consulting your rabbi.

Prohibited foods include the following: leavened bread, cakes, biscuits, crackers, cereal, coffees containing cereal derivatives,
wheat, barley, oats, spelt, rye and all liquids containing ingredients or flavors made from grain alcohol.

Most Ashkenazic authorities have added the following foods (kitniyot) to the above list: rice, corn, millet, legumes (beans and
peas; however, string beans are permitted). The Committee on Jewish Law and Standards has ruled unanimously that peanuts
and peanut oil are permissible. Some Ashkenazic authorities permit, while others forbid, the use of legumes in a form other
than their natural state, for example, corn sweeteners, com oil, soy oil. Sephardic authorities permit the use of all of the above.
Consult your rabbi for guidance in the use of these products.

PERMITTED FOODS: A. The following foods require no kosher le-Pesah label if purchased prior to Pesah:
unopened packages or containers of natural coffee without cereal additives (However, be aware that coffees
produced by General Foods are not kosher for Passover unless marked KP); sugar, pure tea (not herbal tea); salt
(not iodized); pepper; natural spices; frozen fruit juices with no additives; frozen (uncooked) vegetables (for
legumes see above); milk; butter; cottage cheese; cream cheese; ripened cheeses such as cheddar (hard),
muenster (semi-soft) and Camembert (soft); frozen (uncooked) fruit (with no additives); baking soda.
B. The following foods require no kosher le-Pesah label if purchased before or during Pesah: Fresh fruits and
vegetables (for legumes see above), eggs, fresh fish and fresh meat.
C. The following foods require a kosher le-Pesah label if purchased before or during Pesah: All baked products
(matzah, cakes, matzah flour, farfel, matzah meal and any products containing matzah); canned or bottled fruit
juices (These juices are often clarified with kitniyot which are not listed among the ingredients. However, if one
knows there are no such agents, the juice may be purchased prior to Pesah without a kosher le-Pesah label);
canned tuna (since tuna, even when packed in water, has often been processed in vegetable broth and/or
hydrolyzed protein--however, if it is known that the tuna is packed exclusively in water, without any additional
ingredients or additives, it may be purchased without a kosher le-Pesah label); wine; vinegar; liquor; oils; dried
fruits; candy; chocolate flavored milk; ice cream; yogurt and soda.
D. The following processed foods (canned, bottled or frozen), require a kosher le-Pesah label if purchased during
Pesah: milk, butter, juices, vegetables, fruit, milk products, spices, coffee, tea, and fish, as well as all foods listed in
Category C.

DETERGENTS: If permitted during the year, powdered and liquid detergents do not require a kosher le-Pesah

MEDICINE: Since hametz binders are used in many pills, the following guidelines should be followed: If the
medicine is required for life sustaining therapy, it may be used on Pesah. If it is not for life sustaining therapy, some
authorities permit, while others prohibit. Consult your rabbi. In all cases, capsules are preferable to pills.

KASHERING OF UTENSILS: The process of kashering utensils depends on how the utensils are used. According
to halakhah, leaven can be purged from a utensil by the same process in which it was absorbed in the utensil
(ke-voleo kakh poleto). Therefore, utensils used in cooking are kashered by boiling, those used in broiling are
kashered by fire and heat, and those used only for cold food are kashered by rinsing.

A. EARTHENWARE (china, pottery, etc.) may not be kashered. However, fine translucent chinaware which has not
been used for over a year may be used if scoured and cleaned in hot water.

B. METAL (wholly made of metal) UTENSILS USED IN FIRE (spit, broiler) must first be thoroughly scrubbed and
cleansed and then made as hot as possible. Those used for cooking or eating (silverware, pots) must be thoroughly
scrubbed and cleaned and completely immersed in boiling water. Pots should not be used for a period of at least 24
hours between the cleaning and the immersion in boiling water. Metal baking utensils cannot be kashered.

C. OVENS AND RANGES: Every part that comes in contact with food must be thoroughly scrubbed and cleaned.
Then, oven and range should be heated as hot as possible for a half hour. If there is a broil setting, use it. Self-
cleaning ovens should be scrubbed and cleaned and then put through the self-cleaning cycle. Continuous cleaning
ovens must be kashered in the same manner as regular ovens.

D. SMOOTHTOP ELECTRIC RANGES present a problem. They cannot be covered with foil, nor heated at a high
temperature, nor cleaned with an abrasive cleaner. Consult with the manufacturer on how to clean the smoothtop.
Then discuss with your rabbi if that method of cleaning is adequate enough to kasher the smoothtop. Some will not
be able to be kashered.

MICROWAVE OVENS, which do not cook the food by means of heat, should be cleaned, and then a cup of water
should be placed inside. Then the oven should be turned on until the water disappears. A microwave oven that has
a browning element cannot be kashered for Pesah.

E. GLASSWARE: Authorities disagree as to the method for kashering drinking utensils. One opinion requires
soaking in water for three days, changing the water every 24 hours. The other opinion requires only a thorough
scrubbing before Pesah, or putting them through a dishwasher.
Glass Cookware: There is a difference of opinion as to whether it is to be kashered. One opinion is that it must be
kashered. After a thorough cleansing, there should be water boiled in them which will overflow the rim. The other
opinion is that only a thorough cleansing is required.
Glass Bakeware, like metal bakeware, may not be kashered.

F. DISHWASHER: After not using the machine for a period of 24 hours, a full cycle with detergent should be run.

G. ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES: If the parts that come into contact with hametz are removable, they can be
kashered in the appropriate way (if metal, follow the rules for metal utensils). If the parts are not removable, the
appliance cannot be kashered. (All exposed parts should be thoroughly cleaned.)

H. TABLES, CLOSETS AND COUNTERS: If used with hametz, they should be thoroughly cleaned and covered,
and then they may be used.

I. KITCHEN SINK: A metal sink can be kashered by thoroughly cleaning and then pouring boiling water over it. A
porcelain sink should be cleaned and a sink rack used. If, however, dishes are to be soaked in a porcelain sink, a
dish basin must be used.

J. HAMETZ AND NON-PASSOVER UTENSILS: Non-Passover dishes, pots and hametz whose ownership has
been transferred, should be separated, locked up or covered and marked in order to prevent accidental use.

                             HOW TO CONDUCT A SEDER IN YOUR OWN HOME
We know that many inexperienced young parents would like to observe the first seder in their own home, yet feel
that they cannot conduct the seder in the traditional manner. We, therefore, print several ideas from American
Judaism which should prove helpful.

            1. Make sure that everyone has a Haggadah. Select the one that you like best and is suited for the
            participants. The seder has been characterized as "a hurried trip through Jewish history via the
            Haggadah - a panoramic cross-section of Jewish life."
            2. Don't feel that your seder must be too formal. You may interpolate into the various parts of the service
            your own comments. You may ask others to do the same. Keep the service moving along, but don't feel
            that it has quite the same formality as a synagogue service. The seder is a unique mixture of the solemn
and the joyful.
3. Study the Haggadah before the night of the seder. Decide in advance which parts you can do in Hebrew and
which in English.
4. Rotate the reading of the parts of the Haggadah among those at the table. Some will read in English; others in
Hebrew. Some will sing the songs in one style; others will use another melody. The very mèlange of the Hebrew
dialects and the variations in the manner of reading portions of the service will illustrate the diversity of Jewish
life and add a special flavor to the proceedings.
5. Have the guest recite as many of the blessings as possible in unison, and even certain segments can be read in
unisons as to engage the attention of everyone.

THE SEDER TABLE should be set as beautifully as possible with flowers, fine silverware and sparkling linen in
addition to lighted candles over which a blessing should be recited.
On the table, there is a decorative plate which contains the symbols of Pesah: the maror, the bitter herb, which
leaves the bitter taste of slavery in our mouths; the haroset, the mixture of apples, nuts and wine, reminiscent of
the mortar used in the work of slave labor in olden days when the Jews made bricks for Pharaoh; the roasted egg
recalls the special sacrifice offered in the Temple on all holidays; the roasted bone stands for the paschal lamb,
which our ancestors ate this night each year before the destruction of the Temple; parsley, eaten to indicate the
Pesah is a spring festival, is dipped in salt water to remind us of the tears of the Hebrew slaves.

               THE AFIKOMAN is another symbol of Passover. Early in the service, the middle matzah of the three
               that are on a plate covered by a napkin is broken in two. One portion is wrapped in a napkin, and is
               hidden until the meal is finished. This portion is known as the afikoman. The custom of hiding the
               afikoman has developed from a desire to keep children who are at the seder alert until the
               conclusion. A prize is given to the child who later finds the afikoman.

THE FOUR QUESTIONS which are asked by the youngest child are -called Mahnishtanah, the first two Hebrew
words of the questions. The narrative of the Haggadah is the reply.

THE CUP OF ELIJAH is kept filled with wine on the table in anticipation of the coming of Elijah pictured as
the herald of the great Messianic era when all men will accept God's rule. During the service, each person
drinks four cups of wine, which symbolize the four-fold promise of redemption which God pledged to Israel.
Elijah is supposed to be the invisible guest who enters spiritually when the door is opened during the seder.

HALLEL. Throughout the seder, we recite certain psalms. Because they are psalms of praise, we speak of them as
Hallel, which is the Hebrew word for praise. These psalms are regarded as the oldest portion of our Haggadah

The seder is an occasion of joyous family reunion. A little effort on your part will bring you the satisfaction of
knowing that you have created an inspiring event in your child's life which will remain a happy memory.

Spring is a time of re-birth and rejuvenation. We see flowers and shrubs blooming all over
Brevard, and some of us with watery eyes and a case of the sniffles can tell you first hand that
“spring has sprung.” It is also during this time that Temple Beth Sholom is busy collecting past
dues and pledges – money needed to keep our synagogue viable and solvent for the remaining of
the fiscal year. Please do everything in your power to complete any outstanding financial
obligations you might have. We need your support.

Speaking of support, one of our special “snowbirds” Natalie Oshins has given me information on
a program she thinks would benefit many of our TBS members. Her synagogue in upstate New
York has created REYUT (meaning friendship) which is a committee made up of volunteers who
visit the sick, support their fellow congregants in times of crisis, participate in educational
programs designed to make them more sensitive to the needs of others and join with other
community groups who have similar needs in this area. We all know members who could use a
visit, a ride to an appointment or to synagogue, food following a funeral, or just a friendly phone
call to inquire about their well-being. Many of you do this already, and we thank you in advance;
however, a few recent incidents have prompted a need to make this an ongoing activity. I will
speak to our Sisterhood and Men’s Club for starters and hope to engage as many of you as
possible in this worthwhile and necessary activity. More information will be available as we take
this plan forward.

There are so many activities happening this month and next. April 10 we have our second
Passover BBQ. Actually, it’s pre-Passover, so we will serve hotdog buns this year. Last year was
amazing—a huge turnout, and we nearly ran out of food! That will not happen this year, we
promise. Make a reservation by contacting Sisterhood or the Men’s Club.

Our Fine Wine event committee is working very hard to make this evening a success. Dawn
Hawkins, aka Decorating Diva, is putting her elegant touch on every facet of this event, so make
sure you plan to attend this special evening Under the Stars on May 7th, at the beautiful home of
Dr. Lee and Eleanor Sheldon.

Our synagogue is the perfect place to continue our spiritual growth, while cultivating new friends
and renewing our ties to our Jewish roots. As we enter this Passover season, may we all enjoy
good health, prosperity and the rewards that come from our continued support of Temple Beth

Chag Sameach!

Dear Temple Members,

Brevard Jewish Community School is putting the finishing touches on the 2010-2011 yearbook,
and we have had a fabulous response! The majority of BJCS families have purchased a
yearbook that they will continue to enjoy for years to come.

In addition to advertising in the Temple bulletin, we are inviting Temple members to place full
color advertisements in our hard copy yearbook. Ads are available in the following sizes: 1/8
page, ¼ page, ½ page, full page, or the full page back cover of the yearbook. All proceeds
from these advertisements directly benefit the children of the school and support a well-
rounded academics in a nurturing environment, while providing the foundation and building
blocks of the Jewish education.

Our deadline for advertisements is April 8th. You may contact Sharon or Wray for additional
details. Thank you in advance for your support and consideration.

Down to business!

The next three months are both critical to the Temple’s turnaround, and difficult as they are
every year in every synagogue. As I have pointed out in previous months, we collect the majority
of our funding in the summer and early autumn, just after our fiscal year (July 1) begins. As the
months dwindle, so does our cash flow. I remain consistently optimistic that we have a chance to
balance this year’s budget, after assuming prior year debts of approximately $50,000 (2008-2009)
and $14,000 (2009-2010). In other words, we have paid off the amounts due from prior years, and
I still remain hopeful that this year we will not leave any debt to be paid out of next year’s income.
One cannot take a snapshot of our financial life, as it is a rolling continuum; but however artificial
we do work with a July 1-June 30 framework.

In order to make this year successful, a year ahead of the projections that said it would take 3
years to get us back to where we rebuild our savings (for a rainy day) through an annual surplus
(and have no doubts about it, we are on our way to better days); every member must help. Most
of you will be hearing from me or Dawn in the next three months.

We must receive all monies due from our members, whether for this year’s obligations, or from
prior years. Our by-laws state that to be a member in good standing, one must have paid all
amounts due by the end of our fiscal year. Many might say “so what?” The answer is: that isn’t
our way – the way we were raised or taught by our grandparents and parents. It is the obligation
of all of us, as Jews, to maintain our synagogue and Jewish “center” not just for ourselves, but for
the next generations. As our younger members build their lives and raise families, their capacity
may be limited and is traditionally supplemented by the generosity of others. Everyone must help
in some way. Those members with a greater capacity, as was the case when I raised my children,
have been helping and I know will continue to help. But now is the time for everyone to do what
they can to help us….

If you have already paid the amount due on your account, we still must ask for 100%
participation in the annual pledge campaign (otherwise known as the High Holy Day Appeal).
This is the second largest component of our budgeted income (after membership dues), and we ask
all of you who have not yet made a pledge or paid a prior pledge, please do so now, to the best of
your ability. Remember, we still have a donor who will give the Temple $54 for every pledge this
year that increases by at least $54 over last year’s number – let us not waste that opportunity.
Everyone, whether with nominal or large amounts, should help.

Please, participate in the legacy, from generation to generation, of supporting and maintaining our
religion and the entity that keeps Judaism alive for us all in this community. We are not perfect,
and we may not do everything we would like to do in the way that every member wishes, but we
are trying our best. With three months left in our fiscal year, we are looking to collect at least
$120,000 on our current receivables and any new funds we can raise. Support our efforts so that
our Temple remains a true Jewish “Center” for us, our members, and our community.

                                                    The last part of the day has started
Throw on some make-up, dress and greet 'em
    I ask you, Moses, this is Freedom?               To clean the mess is all that's left
                                                  Then tomorrow night, the same gesheft.

                                   Ritual Matters


This past month saw continued participation in our ongoing effort to involve our members in
leading services, reading Torah, or Haftarah. Our thanks and recognition go to:

Pat Greeley and Dr. Scott Seminer for their participation as Gabba'im in Ed Birnbaum's
absence; and to

Pam Petrosino, April Petrosino, Michael Rich, Melanie Kaplan, Dr. Mark Dresner, Dr. Neil
Freeman and Diana Seminer, who all read Torah; and to

Dr. Neil Freeman who led Shaharit the Shabbat morning of Brandon Schneider's Bar Mitzvah;
and to

Melanie Kaplan who also read Haftarah; and finally, to

Ziva Bar Navon, Ilene Herr, Brook Deratany Goldfarb, Ronni Minsky, Shlomo Fleishman, and
Dr. Stan Levy, who all read Megilat Esther at our family Purim service.

We encourage all of you to participate. Please contact me regarding anything you wish to do, or
you may contact Michael Rich regarding your reading of Torah or Haftarah.

Many of the Temple's Board members have stepped forward to assist as ushers for Shabbat
services. All are encouraged to contact Ilene Herr if you would kindly volunteer to help in this
way. Our thanks to Barbara Marcus, Debbie Hyman, Victoria Chadbourne, Pat Greeley and for
their participation in the ushering program in March.

Those who have been regular attendees of our Thursday Leisure Minyan have just completed
almost 2 years of study of Maimonides' Mishnah Torah on the subject of redemption. We are
now beginning a new course of study focusing on the man himself by reading and discussing a
compilation of his personal letters dealing with a variety of matters. This promises to be
extremely fascinating opportunity to study a rich, meaningful subject not commonly taught. We
invite everyone to join as much as you are able.

Finally, Passover will be celebrated this month, and the schedule of services is in this month's
bulletin. If you are available, please attend all you can so that we may have complete services
throughout the festival.

Gary B: Sack
TBS Ritual Chairman

We would like to take this opportunity to thank TBS and Sisterhood members
for making our efforts at the Jewish Festival such a success. We would
especially like to thank the volunteers who helped sell our Gift Shop

Deborah Wilde, Pheby Weber, Beth Shaffer, Susan How and Patti Kornberg.

Our Kiddush Luncheon committee is quite busy these days, with preparing
wonderful, tasty dishes for some of the upcoming celebrations at TBS. Our
menu is ever changing, and we are adding new Israeli items for your
enjoyment. Upcoming events include the Men's Club Shabbat and 2 Bar
Mitzvahs. We also are working on the Passover Barbeque.

On June 7, Erev Shavuot, we have an Ice Cream Party following services.

Additionally, we will be making available for purchase our fabulous noodle
kugels. We will include both dairy and pareve selections, with a variety of fruits,
including apple/raisin, pineapple, cherry, blueberry. Large size (9x13) $20,
Small (8x8) $10. Call Flo at 409-0978 to place your order.

As our 2010-2011 season is quickly coming to an end, we are happy to
announce that we will be having an afternoon of Mah Jongg, Bridge or other
games, on June 5th, at TBS. Please see flyer for more information.

We wish all of you and your families, a sweet and happy Pesach.

Our activities planned for the rest of the year can be broadly divided into three categories:
Religious Activities, TBS Activities and Fun Activities, Listed below is our proposed schedule.

Religious Activities:
       Men’s Club Shabbat will be on Friday evening April 8 and Saturday morning April 9.
       Paul Licker as chairman of the Men’s Club Ritual Committee will be coordinating
       assignments. He can be reached at 431-4385 or at

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.

       Yom Ha Shoah Candles should have been received. Donations in memory of the martyrs
       who died during the Holocaust may be made at that time. May 1, 2011 is the Yom Ha
       Shoah Day of Remembrance. Profits from this project will also be applied toward the
       walkway construction.

Fun Activities:
       Our next Movie Night is April 24, 2011. It is "The Pianist." which is about a brilliant
       pianist, a Polish Jew, who witnesses the restrictions Nazis place on Jews in the Polish
       capital, from restricted access to the building of the Warsaw ghetto. As his family is
       rounded up to be shipped off to the Nazi labor camps, he escapes deportation and eludes
       capture by living in the ruins of Warsaw. Our future schedule includes: “Ushpizin” on
       May 8, 2011.

       A Pre-Passover Barbecue is planned for April 10, 2011 at Howard Futch Park. Bob
       Mandel is coordinating efforts with the Sisterhood. Please send in your money as soon as
       you can, so we will know how much food to buy.

       The Men’s Club Golf Tournament will be on May 22, 2011 at the Suntree Country Club.
       We will be keeping the cost the same as last year at $75 for players. Hole Sponsorships
       are available at $100 each, and Team Sponsorships are for sale at $500 each. Contact
       Jim Kincaid at 591-5674 for more details.
