September 2 (morning)                                       Shalom,
Rebecca Savransky                                                 In mid-July I returned from a wonderful and worthwhile experience
Daughter of Irene & Eli                                     with the Kulanu Israel Trip, and immediately took up the position of
Sister of Ariel & Julie                                     Education Director. In this short time I have begun to face and tackle a
Attends Cloonan Middle School                               number of welcome challenges.
Mitzvah Project: Raising a seeing                                 One challenge has been to become acquainted with the Temple Beth
eye dog for Guiding Eyes for the Blind; playing violin at   El community and its members. Although I am familiar with the Stamford
senior residences                                           Jewish community, through my posts as Kulanu teacher and Israel trip
                                                            coordinator, it is clear that Beth El exists as a separate entity with its own
September 4 (morning)                                       life and character. After having worked with numerous congregations, I
Jacqueline Schechter                                        find Beth El lay leaders to be the most committed and devoted I have
Daughter of Miriam & Michael                                encountered thus far. As a community professional, I look forward to
Sister of Allison & Lauren                                  working closely with TBE parents and members to make the 2006-2007
Attends Bi-Cultural Day School                              school year a successful one. Contributions made by lay leaders to
Mitzvah Project: Jewish book drive for Nigerian Jews        Temple Beth El Hebrew School are as meaningful and significant as those
                                                            made by school staff members.
September 4 (morning)                                             Hillel used to say, “Separate not yourself from the community.” (Avot
Allison Schechter                                           2:5). I believe that our Hebrew School is at the heart of the Temple Beth
Daughter of Miriam & Michael                                El community. If the heart is separated from the body, it can’t function.
Sister of Jacqueline & Lauren                               My goal is to bring the community to the school and the school to the
Attends Bi-Cultural Day School                              community. In fulfilling the commandment to teach and learn, our
Mitzvah Project: Eyeglass drives for                        congregation’s clergy, personnel and social groups involvement can only
underprivileged people in third world countries             fortify our community through their integration with school life. In order
                                                            to lead the way in making this happen, our Rabbi and Cantor have joined
September 9 (morning)                                       the Hebrew School staff. Moreover, our special family Kabbalat Shabbat
Mitchell Berkoff                                            will take place in the main sanctuary and our students, the next
Son of Susan & Michael                                      generation, will lead some parts of the service.
Brother of Melissa                                                I encourage you to join us and be a part of our school and youth
