June/July 2013 - Anshe Emet Synagogue

From RabbiMichael SiegelSenior RabbiThe Norman AsherRabbinic Chairmsiegel@AnsheEmet.orgAnshe Emet Bulletin • Vol. LXXXV, No. 10, June-July 2013 / Sivan-Tammuz-Av 5773 • www.AnsheEmet.orgOn a Friday night in May ourcongregation celebrated thegraduation ceremony of the Josephand Belle Braun Religious School.The graduates took part in ourShabbat Service and shared theirexperience this past year. Eachspoke movingly about what is thepinnacle of that graduation year: atrip to Israel with Ta’am Yisrael. Atthe end of the service each of theparents addressed their childrenin the most moving of ways,acknowledging the way that theirJewish education has impactedtheir lives. It was my honor to leadthe parents in the blessing over ofour children and the She’hechiyanu.As we recited the words togetherI thought of Rabbi Philip Langhand how very proud he would have been at that moment.Rabbi Langh served as the spiritual leader of the Anshe EmesSynagogue, as it was called then, from 1920 to 1929. Amongst hisother accomplishments he created our congregation’s religiousschool. The reason that Rabbi Langh came to mind is that I havehad the occasion to meet his daughter Judy and hear moreabout his Rabbinate as well as welcome his grandson Chip toour congregation. Together they have chosen to continue hiseducational legacy in our day.Born in Hungry in 1895, Langh came to this country andultimately attended the Jewish Theological Seminary. In thoseyears, Solomon Schechter led the Seminary and transformedit into one of the great centers of Jewish learning. But Dr.Schechter’s vision went well beyond the corridors of J.T.S.extending to congregations throughout the country throughan organization called the United Synagogue. Rabbi Langh wasa true pioneer in the field of synagogue development and wasthe first Mid-West Director of the United Synagogue. It was inRabbi Langh’s belief in the power of adult education promptedhim to author books on the subject and inspire other Rabbisaround the country to follow his lead. Without knowing it, hisphilosophy has influenced my own rabbinate.See Rabbi Siegel, page 6Annual Meeting Information ... see page 4Celebrations/Events................................................. 2Annual Meeting Information..................................... 4Worship................................................................ 5-6Adult Programming................................................... 7Youth/Family Programming..................................... 10Special June/July Double Issue!Rabbi Philip Langh: Celebrating an Educational LegacyInside your June/July Bulletinthis position that Rabbi Langh helped to organize a fledglingmovement, but it also gave him the opportunity to bring hispassion for Jewish education;, the arts and culture to the fore.He so impressed the community with his energy and innovativespirit that he was asked to serve as Rabbi of the small AnsheEmes congregation on Patterson Street. Here he was able toput into practice his belief that a synagogue needed to be muchmore than a place to hold services. Rabbi Langh understoodat a very early time the potential that the synagogue had to bean educational center for Jews of all ages in this exciting andchallenging place called America. The religious school was thefirst of many educational innovations that Rabbi Langh broughtto Anshe Emes.By 1929 the congregation had grown to 200 family units and adecision was made to purchase the synagogue that had housedTemple Sholom as they moved to their new quarters on LakeShore Drive. It was a challenging time for the congregation withthe stock market crash and a decision was made to bring RabbiSolomon Goldman to the congregation. Rabbi Langh, ever thepioneer, moved and settled on the West Coast eventually headingup the Herzl Congregation in Seattle. What he found there wasa small Jewish community that was struggling to be understoodby its Christian neighbors. Here too, Rabbi Langh relied on AdultEducation to strengthen the people that he served. Here is anewspaper clipping from 1934:Launching a series of seven lectures tracing 4,000 years of Jewishcontributions to civilization, Rabbi Philip A. Langh will begin hissecond experiment in adult education in Seattle Tuesday at HerzlSynagogue when he talks on “Rediscovering the Old Testament.”“I think the lectures presented will better fortify the Jew to meet theattacks of his maligners and, at the same time, will aid in fosteringgoodwill between Christian and Jew,” Rabbi Langh said.Learn.................................................................... 8-9June-July 2013 Pullout Calendar.........................11-14Community........................................................15, 18Sustaining Fund Donors......................................16-17Support.................................................................. 19

From OurPresidentHarold C. HirshmanJusticeWhen I was a kid I came across a phrasein the Torah which made very littlesense to me. It was: Justice, Justice thoushalt pursue. I immediately imaginedtwo guys named justice running downthe street with the cops after them.Somehow I did not think this was whatthe Torah had in mind. I ask someonelearned in Hebrew why there weretwo justices and he said as a matter ofHebrew grammar the second Justicewas simply there as an emphatic andthe King James version of the Bibletranslates the Hebrew Tzedek Tzedektirdof as: You shall surely pursue justice.But I remained unsatisfied.I was trying a case in Little Rock and Iheard the judge tell the jury, as they always do, there are two sides tothe story, keep an open mind until you have heard all the evidence.It occurred to me that maybe this is what the phrase was intendedto mean. I told the jury, “the Bible says Justice Justice though shaltpursue.” But don’t we all know what Justice is. We just hear a set offacts and we can easily determine who is right and who is wrong.Our gut or some other internal organ gives us an instant answer.But I told the jury I think it’s not that easy. It’s too easy to close ourears and our minds and cling to the first version of a set of facts thatwe hear. If we did that we wouldn’t be pursuing justice, we wouldbe ignoring the warning that justice is not so simple to obtain, thatit has a degree of elusiveness and that we should be careful of ourown preconceptions if we are trying to do justice. Telling this to ajury is one thing: they are being asked to come to a verdict in a courtof law – an obvious context to think about justice. And for me asan advocate my job is made a bit easier because I have a role. I ama paid story teller for one side. I cannot make up things but I canpresent them in the best light for my side. I have to be careful to putthe advocates role to the side in my every day life.I have come to believe that this pursuit of justice is central to beinga Jew, and is a sign post to guide us as we walk along, though life,every day. In my mind the pursuit of justice principle is inextricablybound up with two other maxims, one from Hillel and one fromSocrates. Hillel’s maxim is his famous answer that Judaism is simplytreating your neighbor as yourself; Socrates - the command hereceived from the Delphic oracle to know himself. It is easy to repeatthese two pithy phrases but when examined closely they are closerto riddles than to answers. From what vantage point can you knowyourself? The same mind that is doing the knowing is the only onewe have. And what exactly does it mean to treat someone likeyourself? So these principles are helpers or guideposts but wherethey point requires an application, for me, of the fundamentalinjunction to pursue justice.With our children and our life partners, we must do them justiceas well. What does that mean? I suppose it means that saying,“its my way or the highway,” is not an appropriate response whenyour child makes a proposal you consider to be beyond the pale. Itcertainly means hearing out your family members and holding backthe initial impulse, be it anger or impatience, to make sure that youare not simply a prisoner of your gut reaction. As I look at life, I amleft with the problem of what the just act, what the just response isand what happens when my conception of Justice is at odds withsomeone else’s. You may wonder by now, “why is he writing this inthe Bulletin?” The answer is simple. I am starting on my fourth andlast year as President. It’s remarkable how many issues arise whichrequire an exercise of restraint and an attempt to pursue a just result.All I can say to you is that I have tried as your president to followthe principle of Tzedek Tzedek tirdof. I am deeply appreciative of theopportunity to work to do justice for our community which you haveafforded me. Thank you.From OurExecutiveDirectorBarbara B. Haworthbhaworth@AnsheEmet.orgWinding down the fiscal year…with your help!As our fiscal year draws to a close, I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you for all you havedone for the synagogue this year. It is truly a privilege to watch so many of you engage in worship, study,chesed, and just “being part of the community”. Anshe Emet is a wonderfully complex institution full of manymoving parts to keep it going.This is the time of the year when we are winding down the synagogue fiscal year and simultaneously making plansfor the next year. It is also the time of year when it is imperative that we finish collecting all dues and fees owed byour members for the last fiscal year so that we can, literally, pay our bills through our year end on June 30.This year the High Holy Days coincide with Labor Day which means our work regarding membership renewalsand ticketing has to be done early. By the time you read this, your bill for the last fiscal year should be paidin full so that we can embark on your membership renewal in the most expedient fashion. Outstanding billswill delay the High Holy Day ticketing process for you and will cause the staff to spend additional time in analready challenging process.Your membership renewal packet should have been received by now and we anticipate beginning the ticketingprocess this month. Since we cannot send tickets out to anyone who has an outstanding balance, won’t youhelp us by paying your outstanding bills now? You can call Ade Ogbara at 773-868-5124 and arrange paymentover the phone with your credit card. If you need to discuss financial assistance, please call Amy Karp 773-868-5139. We really do need your help to get your financial arrangements for this year completed as soon as possible.It has been a joy to be here this year as your Executive Director and I want to thank you for making me part of the community. As always, I amavailable to you to discuss this or any aspect of your membership at Anshe Emet Synagogue.Barbara B. HaworthJune-July 2013 / Sivan-Tammuz-Av 5773 3

WorshipRabbi Abe’s Summer Reading ListFrom RabbiAbe Friedmanafriedman@AnsheEmet.orgIn the past year, I read three grippingbut very different books that considerthe place – in history and in the present– of Hasidic Judaism. One novel, onebiography, and one that nearly defiesclassification at all, these books offerfascinating glimpses into a world thatcan seem foreign and familiar all atonce.I am Forbidden, by AnoukMarkovits, (Hogarth, 2012)Markovits’ first English-language novelopens just a few years before theShoah burns across Europe, and followsthe fortunes and misfortunes of twowomen – sisters by fate, if not by birth– as they move with the Satmar community from Romania to Parisand ultimately New York. Buffeted by the storms of the twentiethcentury as well as by their own inner stirrings, Atara and Milawrestle with the question of whether history must become destiny.Markovits’ writing conveys a sense of beauty mixed with pain as herheroines wind their way toward the novel’s shocking conclusion.The Rebbe: The Life and Afterlife of MenachemMendel Schneerson, by Samuel Heilman andMenahem Friedman, (Princeton Univ. Press, 2010)In this biography, Heilman and Friedman, two of the leadingsociologists studying Orthodox Judaism today, set their sights on afigure who is at once ubiquitous and enigmatic: Menachem MendelSchneerson, the seventh and final Rebbe of Lubavitch. While hisimage and name are instantly recognizable the world over, thanksto the efforts of his Chabad “shluchim” (messengers), much of theRebbe’s background remained cloaked in shadow. In this landmarkwork, Heilman and Friedman painstakingly trace the story of a manwho began his life in Russia before the Soviet Revolution, workedwest across Europe mere steps ahead of the Nazis, and against all oddsbuilt an empire in America that exceeded even the wildest dreamsof his predecessors. There can be no question that the LubavitcherRebbe forever changed the face of Judaism in America – and perhapsthe world – and The Rebbe gives a striking portrayal of who this manwas in life and how his image lives on past his death.Nine Gates to the Hasidic Mysteries, by Jiri Langer,(Jason Aronson, 1993)What would possess an otherwise urbane, middle-class Jewishteenager to flee Prague in search of enlightenment at the court of theRebbe of Belz? And when he returns, years later, how does he squarethe mystical, timeless rhythms of Belz with the bustle of interwarPrague? The closest we may ever come to an answer lies in Langer’sNine Gates, a book that is not quite academic scholarship, not quitesacred legend, but instead carves its own unique place somewhere inbetween. Reading Nine Gates is almost like reading sacred text, a workthat carries us to a realm that bridges this world and the one that liesbeyond. “All you, then, who wish to live, enter this gate with me, forthere you shall read all this…”Crossing the River, by Dr. Shalom Eilati, (Universityof Alabama Press, 2009)On a personal note, I just received news that my cousin ShalomEilati’s stirring memoir, Crossing the River, is about to be released inpaperback. A bestseller in Israel in the 1990s (the present edition wastranslated from the Hebrew by Vern Lenz), Eilati’s story of his escapefrom the Kovno Ghetto, hiding with non-Jews in the Lithuaniancountryside, and eventual emigration to mid-1940s Palestine ismixed with his late-in-life reflections on the life that he rebuilt as thefledgling State of Israel was building itself.Anshe Emet Live!A community-wide musical serviceLast Anshe Emet Liveof the season!Friday, June 21, 7:30 p.m.Oneg Shabbat to followCome join your friends and make new ones as we celebrate Shabbat in an interactivecommunity service.

He was a regular speaker for Christian groups and provedto be an important representative of the Jewish people. Using hiseducational skills Rabbi Langh introduced Judaism and the Jewishpeople to the wider public. While sensitive to the challenges of beinga Jew in America he was quick to challenge his community to havethe courage of their convictions. Consider this admonition: “I heartilyendorse any efforts to dissuade Jewish children from participatingin Christmas plays in the public schools. Many Jewish parents do notrealize that Christmas celebrates not a national holiday, but is theobservance of the principal religious holiday of Christianity. Jewishchildren have no right to take part in the celebration.” While todayRabbis would think nothing of issues; such a statement the Jewishworld was a very different place in the 1930s. Rabbi Phillip Langhdied in 1946 in Oakland, California.Rabbi Langh left Anshe Emet 84 years ago and as our religious schoolgraduation made clear, part of his legacy remains. It is wonderfulto welcome a grandson back to our community after all this time aswell. I am happy to announce that the family has chosen to continuethe Langh legacy through the creation of a Rabbinic continuingeducation fund in his name. The funding will allow me to study atthe Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem and share my learningwith the congregation. What better way to honor a person then tosupport Jewish education, Rabbi Langh’s passion and life’s work foranother generation. Many thanks to the family.Zecher Tzadik L’Vracha: the memory of the righteous is a blessing.6June-July 2013 / Sivan-Tammuz-Av 5773www.AnsheEmet.org

We are looking for actors, designers andplaywrights. Volunteers need not be active at Anshe Emet.The program would include acting and improv classes, and lecturesby guest theater artists. Suggested projects include: table reading ofplays, both published and in-progress; Harold Hirshman suggestedwe do a chamber reading of “The Tenth Man” by Paddy Chayefsky;a reading of the classic play “The Dybbuk,” by S. Ansky and/or “TheGolem,” by H. Lievick.

Under Leah’s leadership ourschool has grown and developed in a variety of different ways. Moreover, Leah and her family have become so important to the AnsheEmet family. We accept Leah’s resignation with obvious sadness and a deep sense of gratitude for all that she has done for our AnsheEmet community. It is good to know that Leah, Josh, Elliot and Amelia will be closer to family in Portland. Please join us in wishingLeah and her family the very best in their new home and community.In partnership with the synagogue board we will appoint an interim director/principal as we embark on a search for our new religiousschool principal. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.With best wishes,Rabbi Michael S. SiegelSenior RabbiRabbi Matt FuttermanSenior EducatorThe “Shin Shinim” are coming! The “Shin Shinim” are Coming!July 4, 1976 was a day I shallnever forget. It was the Americanbicentennial and throughout theUnited States celebrations were heldas the culmination of a full year ofpreparations for that special day.Along with hundreds of campers andstaff members from Camp Ramahin the Berkshires I marched in thetiny town of Dover Plains, New Yorkdressed in red, white and blue outfits incelebration of the great achievementsFromof our still very young nation. TheRabbi Mattonly float in the parade was a modelFuttermanof Jerusalem constructed by the Israelishlihim (emissaries) who came toSenior Educatorcamp for the summer and who weremfutterman@AnsheEmet.org as anxious to establish meaningfulrelationships with the camp’s non-Jewish neighbors as they were with the camp’s Jewish population.I am reminded of that summer as I consider how we are celebratingthe 65th birthday of the State of Israel this year. Some of uscelebrated here in Chicago at the wonderfully successful SolidarityDay sponsored by the JUF at Ravinia. Some of us came to hear thereports of Anshe Emet’s eighth grade students who spent the yearstudying about Israel – many of whom visited Israel as participantsin the annual “Taam Israel (Taste of Israel)” trip held in the winter.Some will join Rabbi Siegel’s December mission to Israel and somesupported the recent Israel Jazz Festival.In the coming year we will add a new dimension to our relationshipwith Israel by sponsoring and hosting two “Shin Shinim” for a yearof service to our community at Anshe Emet. “Shin Shin” stands for“Shnat Sherut” (“a year of service”) – a program organized by theJewish Agency for Israel that brings the cream of Israeli youth intoDiaspora communities for a year before they begin their militaryservice at home. Anshe Emet Synagogue will partner with theBernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School in bringing two recent highschool graduates from Israel to live and work as volunteer teachers,educators and youth leaders. Their involvement in our communitywill not only allow our young people to establish a more intimaterelationship with Israel but allow all of our members to deepen theirties to the Jewish state.The Israel Education Fund established last year in honor of RabbiSiegel’s 30th anniversary at Anshe Emet will help underwrite the costof this program. However, we are looking for at least 6 families withchildren involved either with BZAEDS or with the Braun ReligiousSchool and high school to take turns hosting our Israeli guests duringthe coming year.If you would like to be a host family please contact me atmfutterman@ansheemet.org and let me know of your interest inthe program. Together with our friends at BZAEDS we will work tomake the best possible matches between our families and our Israeliguests.If America was young at 200 (and will still be young when wecelebrate her 237th birthday this July) then Israel should be likenedto a toddler. But this is a toddler whose brief history has been full ofturbulent moments on the one hand and remarkable achievementson the other. And because Israel continues to pull at us as ourancestral if not actual homeland we continue to engage in new andvital ways of exploring our connections with her. Hosting our “ShinShinim” is but one of the new and exciting ways we hope will enablethe members of our community to grow their love for Israel in this65th birthday year.Let us always find ways of celebrating Israel together.B’ahavat Yisrael / With love of Israel,8June-July 2013 / Sivan-Tammuz-Av 5773www.AnsheEmet.org

Matt was themadrikh this year for that class and did aFromLeah ConleyPrincipal, Joseph andBelle Braun Anshe EmetReligious Schoollconley@AnsheEmet.orgphenomenal job. He was in 4th grade on my first day at Anshe Emet.So many “I remember when…” moments and they feel great. Havingthose moments makes this the best job in the world.But saying goodbye to Anshe Emet is so much harder for me than justsaying goodbye to this school, which believe me is plenty hard. Thisbuilding is my Chicago home. My children were born here and thiscommunity took care of my family in our hardships and celebratedour joys with us. My son, Elliot loves Shalom Shabbat services and hesings himself to sleep at night with Ein Keloheinu. He wakes up askingwhen the next time he will get to see Max will be. I have had amazingconversations on the bus home from Anshe Emet with Suzanna,a woman who attends HaZaK regularly. Every time I see her in thehalls of this building we hug and she asks me about my children. Iam grateful for the many hours of learning in my Melton class withamazing Anshe Emet members and every year on Pesach I will thinkabout how Susan Weininger celebrates with a Pharoah piñata.I have also been blessed to have several amazing mentors in my timehere who have taught me so much. Penny Turner has been a gift. Shehas been my guide both personally and professionally. She has givenme confidence and friendship. Thank you, Penny.Dani Lazar, Eileen Kavin, Laura Kordon, Sara Salzman, and JonZidel have been my partners and heroes to me. I am lucky in thiscommunity to be acknowledged for the great work that gets done,but that work is largely successful due to these people and their rolein the process. I am thankful for your friendship.The professional staff and clergy at Anshe Emet are wonderful. Ihave learned a tremendous amount from working with such capablepeople. In particular, Rabbi Futterman has been to me everythingthat defines the word mentor. I am the educator I am today becauseof him. I know there are many more to thank. Please know I amgrateful to every one who I have known here over the years.In Hebrew, when parting ways, we say L’Hitraot, not goodbye.L’Hitraot means see you later. I know I will be here on frequent visitsand will stay connected to the many people here who have changedmy life. If you didn’t already, you now have a friend in Portland.L’Hitraot,HaZaK Programfor Retired AdultsHokhmah (Wisdom) • Ziknah (Maturity)• Kadimah (Looking ahead)HaZaK is an Anshe Emet daytime program for mature adults withactive minds.
