                                     notes from the hazzan
                              DAVID B. SISLEN
                                                  Our tradition calls the month of Cheshvan “Mar” Cheshvan; “bitter”
                                                  or “sad” Cheshvan, since after the Tishrei experience, rich with dra-
   DAILY                                          matic and meaningful holidays, the second month of the year seems
                                                  like kind of a lonely let-down. Yet I would suggest that the still,
 SERVICES                                         small voice we spoke about in the Unetane Tokef on the High
     Mornings                                     Holidays is what we should hear roaring in our psyche for the near-
                                                  ly two months until we are again distracted by Chanukah fever. This
    REGULAR                                       time is the test to see if we were paying attention during the Yamim
     Monday                                       Noraim, and if our resolve to recognize our shortcomings and take
   and Thursday               steps to repair them will bear fruit. If we were honest in our desire to change, it will be
     6:50 am                  in the relative quiet of these months that we’ll be able to see if we’ve made a difference.
Tuesday, Wednesday,           Absent the distractions of the Tishrei Holiday of the Week extravaganza, we can focus
     and Friday               on the little things. And what should they be? Anything. If you didn’t make a concrete
      7:00 am                 series of resolutions about the things you needed to
                              change, repair, or renew in your life, now is the time.

     9:30 am                  No step is too small. If you haven’t already resolved                  If you haven’t
                              to do so, why not take the opportunity to upgrade to        already resolved to

                              you willing to take on? What one new shul skill are          the opportunity to

                                                                                                version 5771.1.

                              small step can you take that will put you on a new, meaningful, and enriching path? But
                              don’t say I didn’t warn you. Once you take that first step it’s hard to stop. Perhaps that’s
                              why we have the quiet of Cheshvan. It allows us to take the time to listen to our own
& Legal Holidays
                              footsteps. That way we can make sure we’re walking in the right direction.

using wills or Trusts to donate to your synagogue

In the Spring of 1949, a handful of people met in the basement of
a home on Talfor Road sharing a vision for a community where their
children could learn the heritage of their faith, study its language
and observances; where they themselves could worship on Shabbat
and the High Holy Days and observe Yahrzeits and other life cycle
events. Here we are, more than 60 years later, proud members of a
wonderful, warm, egalitarian, Conservative synagogue, whose mis-
sion is to provide innovative, interesting, and thought-provoking
programs that:

                                   The Lighting of Hanukkah Candles
    The celebration of Hanukkah begins on the twenty-fifth day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. On this day, a small
group of Maccabean soldiers were victorious over the great Greek army, and the desecrated Temple was rededicated to
the service of God. We light candles for eight days, beginning on the evening of December 1, in commemoration of
the famous miracle of the oil. After the Maccabean victory, one single crucible of oil (enough to light the Temple
Menorah for only one day) was found. Miraculously, however, it lasted for eight days, long enough for new consecrat-
ed oil to be prepared.
    The Hanukkah menorah (Hanukkia) has nine candles, eight of which represent the eight days of Hanukkah. The
ninth candle, the Shamash, is used to light the other candles and usually towers above the rest.
    The Hanukkah lights may be lit by any member of the family. In many families, each member lights his or her own

Baruch ata Adonai, Elohaynu Melech Haolam,
asher kidshanu b’mitsvotav, v’tsivanu,
l’hadlik ner shel Hanukkah.
    We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with Your Mitzvot and commanded us to kindle the Hanukkah lights.

Baruch ata Adonai, Elohaynu Melech Haolam,
she-asa nisim la-a-vo-tenu, ba-yamim,
ha-hem bazman ha-zeh.
         We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who performed wondrous deeds for our ancestors in days of old at this season.

Baruch ata Adonai, Elohaynu

v’ki-y’manu, v’higianu lazman ha-zeh.
    We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who has given us life, sustained us and enabled us to reach this season.

   The candles are placed from right to left, as one faces the Hanukkia (as Hebrew is read). But they are lit from left
to right, so that on each night, the new candle is given special welcome by being lit first. Only the Shamash is used to
light the other candles.
   The candles should be lit as soon as possible once it is dark. On Friday night, however, the Hanukkah candles are
lit BEFORE the Shabbat candles. At the close of Shabbat, the Havdalah ceremony precedes the lighting of the
