Inaugural Prayer

On January 15th of this year, I was honored to be able to give

the Invocation at the Inauguration of Governor Bill Haslam.

Many congregants either heard the invocation, or heard of it, and

have subsequently asked for a copy of this prayer. I share it with

you here. (Portions taken from Union Prayer Book, in addition to

my own words.)

Our God, God of all generations, God of all lands and ages;

God of this land, this state, God of this day and this place:

We have come before you on this morning, to ask for your blessings on those who

have been chosen to lead us, and those who have the honor of serving the citizens of

the Great State of Tennessee.

We ask for your guidance for our new Governor, and for all those who will govern

with him:

May civility of discourse always be their chief cornerstone;

May humility of spirit forever be their primary touchstone;

And may strength of character consistently be their sacred keystone

in the days and years ahead.

And so, for our new Governor, Bill Haslam, for all those who share the mantle of

leadership, and for all those to whom he, and they, commit themselves to protecting

and guiding, to sustaining and sheltering in Your sight…Let us pray:

For our human community, for our common past, and our future hope, for our

continuing capacity to grow and evolve, the embrace of our freedom, and the full

extent of our liberty…We give thanks this day.

For high hopes and noble causes, for faith without fanaticism, for tolerance of views

differing from our own…We give thanks to you, O God, on this day.

For all who labor and work for the cause of justice, for hallowed places, where human

souls are judged not by the color of their skin but ,rather, by the content of their

character…for all who live, so that others too, might live, in dignity and in freedom…

We give thanks, O God, to you, on this inauguration day.

For human liberty and sacred service; for the defense of the fundamental rights we

cherish – to assemble, to speak freely, to af rm, to dissent—to pray…We give thanks

to you, O God, on this day.

May our new Governor, Bill Haslam, and all those who lead us…May he, and they, lead

us in such a way…that with God’s guidance, we might choose to live our lives…not

driven by our fears but ,rather, by our hopes; not simply by our words but ,rather, by

our deeds.

And may it be so. Amen.

Get on Board

Randy Goldstein

We begin the month with our incredible Temple Arts Festival, our annual fundraiser. This year once

again promises to be an exciting event, with artists from all around the country participating. I would

like to thank Event Co-Chairs Lisa & Steve Small, Rae & Bruce Hirsch, Leah Berman, Erica Jacobs,

Mary Jones, Suzanne Schulman, Barbara Speller and LouAnne Wolfson for chairing this year’s event.

I would also like to thank our Honorary Chairs, Annette Eskind and Heloise Kuhn for their ongoing

support. There are also over 100 volunteers who join together during this two day event. The TAF is

a tremendous undertaking, and it helps The Temple both scally and communally.

The 2011 Annual Giving Campaign has received con rmed pledge cards from 400 families representing an increase of

over $50,000 – 5% greater than last year. If you have not responded we hope you will do so soon. Your Temple needs

your support and your annual gift helps solidify our nancial future. I would like to thank Mark Goldfarb and Jeff Jacobs

who served as this year’s Annual Giving Chairs.

As we move into April, we begin the Annual Budget process for 2011-2012. Ben Russ, Budget Chair and Lisa Crockett,

Finance Director, have already sent letters to the staff and Committee Chairs. The Temple Playschool, Religious School

and the Cemetery budgets are all presented to the committee during April. The preliminary budget will be presented

in May to the Board of Trustees and set for nal approval during the June Board Meeting.

Passover will be celebrated on April 18 th and 19 th . The Temple will be offering a Seder led by Rabbi Schiftan and Cantor

Gutcheon on the second night of Passover. Check within these pages of The View for details.

It’s hard to believe that April brings the end of the four year term for six of our Board of Trustees. Though I will have

another time to recognize the special volunteers during our May 6 th Annual Meeting I wanted to say thank you to

those Trustees ending their term. As I have mentioned before, all our Trustees Chair or Co-Chair one of Temple’s

many committees. Jeff Jacobs has served as Annual Giving Co-Chair and has served on the Executive Committee;

Joyce Friedman has Chaired Communication/Public Relations; Marshall Karr has served as Chair of the Cemetery

Committee for the past four years and will continue as Co-Chair next year; Karen Shaffer rst served as Chair of

the Playschool Advisory Board and recently has served as Religious School Chair; Lisa Shmerling has served on the

Beauti cation Committee; and Carol Smith is a Co-Chair of our Development Committee. I have enjoyed working with

these individuals the past four years and I appreciate all they have accomplished.

I thank all our members of the Board of Trustee for their dedication and to the work they give for our Temple.

April Adventures

by Corye Nelson & Jan Huettner

Temple Playschool anticipates a wonderful April. Spring is in full bloom and many of our children

will be planting sun ower seeds, growing vegetables in their own little gardens, and viewing the

metamorphosis of caterpillars that change into butter ies, just in time for Passover. All ages will

participate in these monthly activities, and we look forward to setting our classroom butter ies

free. Symbolically, the butter ies will y away just like Pharaoh let the Jewish people leave Egypt,

to wander in the wilderness and, eventually, nd their way. Our own model Passover Seder for

the playschool will take place on Friday, April 15 th . We will celebrate with stories and songs.

Children will be making placemats and centerpieces for their very own age-appropriate service.

Members of the congregation, friends, and family are cordially invited to join us as we munch on

matza at Seder, and for the butter y release immediately following.

Additionally, this year on April 4 th through the 8 th , we have planned a muscular dystrophy “hopa-thon.”

This event will include a week of curriculum activities and plans, and end with a fun day

of hopping to raise money and awareness for the muscular dystrophy association.

As you can see, there are very exciting times ahead. In the meantime, please enjoy some of the

many adventures of March through pictures that we have posted below.
