Jewish ValuesRabbi’sTikunOlamMessageIt is our hope that these seeds of good deedswill develop into a lifetime of service.FINDING WAYS TO GIVE BACKBy Rabbi Keren AlpertTemple Beth El, likemany congregations,has tried to link theBar or Bat Mitzvahexperience with theexpectation that becominga Jewish adultalso includes takingon the personal responsibilityof makingthe world a betterplace (tikun olam).To this end, we ask that each of our B’naiMitzvah candidates contribute 18 hoursto community service projects of theirchoosing. We also keep track of whereour students have committed to serve sothat other students can turn to them forfeedback on their mitzvah work. It is ourhope that these seeds of good deeds willdevelop into a lifetime of service.We are proud of our youth group whichcontinues to provide service to the Templeand to the community. They work veryhard to provide the Purim Carnival for theTemple community. This is a fundraiser,but we know it is a day of fun and traditionthat all of our Temple children anticipatewith excitement every year. It takes hoursof work on the part of our youth and theiradult leadership, but it is a gift of love.In addition, our YPS and JYPSdonated their time making food andblankets at the Lawson Institute,for which they received communityservice credit.We were honored to host thecommunity J-Serve event, a day ofarea-wide community service forJewish teens all over metro Detroit.Many of our Beth El kids chose toserve at the Baldwin Soup Kitchen,helping to package food, to prepare theurban garden and to make preparationsfor a major canned food drive.Did you know that JARC Bingo takesplace monthly at Beth El? Recently,YPS members joined in this endeavorand helped to serve as bingo callers, prizechoosers and helpers with marking theBingo cards.Lastly, I’m very excited for a newcommunity initiative (which received agrant from the Hermelin Davidson Centerfor Congregational Excellence). I hopethat Beth El will be well represented in thisinnovative program. It’s called PeerCorpsDetroit. PeerCorps is a year long programthat partners older high school studentswho serve as mentors to b’nai mitzvahage students. They work together to docommunity service. The mentors developself-awareness, critical thinking andcommitment to social action throughconnecting Jewish values to their behavior.The b’nai mitzvah students have a built-inslightly older buddy to help them throughtheir mitzvah work, a buddy whose valuesand commitment to the Detroit Jewishcommunity are worth emulating. Pleasecontact me or peercorpsdetroit@gmail.com if you want more information aboutthis mitzvah opportunity.Temple Beth El has a long history ofsocial justice. We are proud of ourheritage of engaging in and giving back tothe community and particularly kvel in thecontributions of our youth. •June 2013 | the Bulletin| 9

Some of the best pictures we take in nurseryschool are of children, clad in their bathing suits, their faces coveredin melting ice cream, enjoying the beginning of a fun-filled eightweeks of summer fun at Camp Beth El.It’s been a great year for our children and staff at TBE. I wantto thank all of our incredible staff for their dedication and hardwork. Whether it’s teachers of our youngest children in Parent-Totclass, our two’s three’s, or pre-k, we are truly blessed to have such awonderful group of people working here and we know that they allhave played a part in getting many young children off to a successfulstart in school! God bless you all!On a personal note, I am retiring as the Early Childhood EducationDirector as of June 7, the last day of the school year. My many yearsof working at Temple, both as a teacher and then director have beena blessing. Not everyone can say they loved their jobs and the peoplethey worked with for so many years. I want to thank everyone atTemple for always being extremely supportive of me personallyand of the school. The pre-school staff are the most dedicated andtalented group of educators I have ever met and have made my jobeasier. I’m sure there will be many times that I miss everyone atTemple and all that my job entails but I am looking forward to thenext chapter in my life and leave with both happy and sad tears. Iwill always cherish my time with the many children and parents Ihave met. I am leaving knowing that the new director, Lauren Blitz,will take over and that staff, children and parents are in excellenthands. Enjoy your summer and know that I will always feel blessedto have been your director. •12 | the Bulletin | June 2013

Red Cross blood drive has broughtstructure and efficiency to a program intended to save lives. Hisrelentless pursuit of excellence for the drive compelled both volunteersand Red Cross personnel to higher standards. This year’s springblood drive under Dr. Goodman’s direction saw the Brotherhoodpartner with another congregation – Congregation Shaarey Zedek– for the first time. The success of this endeavor resulted in a 76%increase in blood donations.If you spend a little time with Roy, you come to appreciate his drysense of humor. He and his wife, Dr. Judith Schartenberg Goodman,injected some of that humor into several years’ worth of PurimSpiels. More recently his daughter recruited him to write lyrics forthe Ohio State University medical school talent show, a benefit for afree clinic in Columbus.

However, with the number ofdonors having slowly declined over the last years,blood drive Co-Chair Dr. Roy Goodman decidedBrotherhood needed to join forces with anothercongregation.Brotherhood and Shaarey Zedek’s Men’s Club havea long history of cooperative activities. Based onthis history, Shaarey Zedek, which had previouslyheld American Red Cross blood drives, was thenatural partner for this drive and readily joinedus in the combined effort. Realizing the need foradditional manpower when mounting a multicongregationalprogram, Joel Waldbott agreed toserve as Co-Chair.While both Beth El and Shaarey Zedek intendedthe drive primarily for their congregants, thecongregations also sought to offer a convenientlocation for members of the Jewish communityliving in Birmingham/Bloomfield Hills andSouthfield. The Birmingham/Bloomfield ChaiCenter, a small local Orthodox synagogue,recognized the greater aim of saving lives andbegan advertising the drive in its congregationalnewsletter.The first TBE/Shaarey Zedek blood drive washeld April 21 at Congregation Shaarey Zedek.

She is working with Detroit’s LittleRock Baptist Church to prepare the paperwork for that institutionto receive a historic designation from the Detroit City Council.Deborah is a former employee of the city’s Historic DesignationAdvisory Board. She found documents and architectural photographspertaining to construction of Temple Beth El’s Woodward andGladstone location, now owned by Little Rock Baptist Church.I also shared with her the research notes I had compiled whilepreparing for my 2011 lecture titled Albert Kahn’s Craftsmen. Intotal, the documentation should assist the Church in achieving ahistoric designation which then makes it eligible for grant assistanceto finance its refurbishment. Visiting in tandem with Ms. Goldsteinwas Emmanuel Toe who is the current Business Manager for thehistoric Little Rock Baptist Church. He was more than pleased tohave access to interior photographs of the building which shouldprove invaluable during the preservation and renovation process.Emmanuel told me that once the roof is repaired, they willconcentrate on changing the sanctuary into a performing arts spacewhich can be rented for concerts, weddings and other events. He alsoshared with me plans to have the sanctuary’s famous Myron Barlowmurals restored to their former glory.JEWISH WAR VETERANS OFMICHIGAN ARCHIVESOn behalf of the family of the late Charles Serge Sherman, ShirleyMarshall, a member of the JWVM Ladies Auxiliary, has donateda World War II enlisted man’s naval uniform.

What he does is “an incredible tribute, not a mere imitation” andaudiences leave his performances “swept up in the emotion he brings” while keeping the soundand style of Sinatra alive. You will be swept up as well when you join us in listening to Mark Randisiand his 17 piece orchestra bringing us the magic of Sinatra’s music by a performer whose richvoice and sense of humor make each concert a memorable event.Call the Laura in theRabbis’ Study at248-851-1100,ext. 3142 to reserveyour tickets.
