High Holy Days 5759:

A Chance for our Renewal

As much as we all know it,

the summer goes too fast….it

feels faster, every year, in fact.

Indeed, the Jewish calendar

makes it all feel more

accelerated because our Holy

Days arrive this year, what

feels like a couple of

minutes after Labor Day.

And so, Shannah Tovah, my Good

People. May this year be one of health,

happiness fulfillment, joy, flourishing,

sweetness and meaning.

Let this be a season that propels us

to everything we deserve. Of course,

what we deserve doesn’t come magically.

Our tradition teaches that there is

very specific spiritual work to be done

in order for our inner-most desires to

come to fruition.

The work of this season is not

difficult to understand; but complex

to make happen. According to our

Sages-of-Old, there are three steps of

a process called Teshuva, that give

passage to a year of fulfillment and

meaning.

Teshuva is often translated as “

forgiveness”….and it does indeed

include the process of reconciliation in

its definition. But, the literal meaning

of Teshuva means to “turn” or “return”.

The following is a the three-step

process of “return”; of the

Teshuva about which I speak:

By Rabbi Matthew D. Gewirtz

1-Return to Self:

In this New year, we are

first encouraged to turn

inward. Too often, our

thoughts are mixed up with

everything that occurs around

us. There is so much about

which we should be

concerned nowadays.

Our world is complicated and needs

our attention. But sometimes, we use

the problems of the world to avoid

facing ourselves.

Returning to ourselves, according

to our Sages, means that each of us is

born with a purpose, a reason to be

alive. We are all here to be something;

to do something.

I believe that. I believe that each of

us possesses an innate essence that

gives us direction and purpose. Do

you believe the same? If so, what is

it for you? Are you doing what you

were meant to do in your life? Let’s

take a spiritual account and make

sure that we are not the ones getting

in the way of ourselves.

Almost all of us are not overt sinners.

Most of us do the small “stuff” that

doesn’t allow us, to be us. We spend

too much time being jealous, angry,

guilty, frustrated, judgmental and

fearful. Those transgressions sometimes

infringe upon others, but more,

they inhibit us from being our best

2


selves. We habituate what is not healthy because it

feels comfortable to do so.

So, let’s return to ourselves. Let’s do an accounting

of our souls. Let’s make this the year that we treat

ourselves better; that we break the habits; they we

allow ourselves to be everything we were born to

be. Not only because it will make the world a better

place, but because we can give ourselves the gift of

being happier and more fulfilled human beings.

2- Return to Others:

The second sacred task of the season is our call to

return to others. This is undoubtedly what we are

accustomed to hearing during this time of year.

This is when Teshuva does mean reconciliation

and forgiveness.

This is the time when we are encouraged to evaluate

our relationships. This is the time when we are given

the privilege of asking ourselves the tough questions

about our connection to others.

So, how are we doing with our relationships with

our spouses, partners, parents, siblings, friends,

bosses, colleagues, neighbors and strangers?

This is the time to come clean; to have the conversation;

to ask for forgiveness; to let someone know that they

have hurt us. This is the time to let go of the grudge;

not always because we owe it to someone else, but

because it is time to stop paying emotional rent to a

frayed relationship. This is the time to let go of

arguments and estrangement that we are not

even sure how and why it all started.

We don’t have to lower ourselves into submission,

but we do have to make sure that we are not holding

on to our anger, just because our egos tell us that we

should do so. Perhaps, the other party will disappoint

us, but if we try, we can more easily look at ourselves

in the mirror. Let’s return to others and maybe the

honey of the new year will indeed taste sweeter

than it ever has before.

3-Return to God:

The last of the three sacred tasks seems the most

difficult. How are we supposed to return to God,

when so many of us have questions about who and

what God is to us in our lives? But paradoxically,

this is perhaps the easiest part of the process.

Our tradition teaches that God doesn’t want to hear

from us on Yom Kippur unless we have fulfilled the

first two tasks I write about above. Indeed, God is

interested in listening to our petitions when we

have reconciled with ourselves and those who

surround us. This works for those of us who know

we believe and for those of us who struggle with

the same. Prayers in synagogue become significant

when the words on the page; our values, are acted

out in real life.

We might imagine that God is there cheering us on

to make our lives better; and is then there with open

and loving ears during the Holy Days because we

have striven to reach higher levels of existence.

The idea is: let’s take care of our individual and

communal spiritual business and God can then

sew the cosmic pieces together. Indeed, this is a

Human-Divine partnership that can make our

world a better place.

Transitioning to fall is not always easy. But the

possibilities of the change in season, in conjunction

with our holiest of our days, give us the possibility

of a spiritual reset; one that can actually change the

trajectory of our lives for the better. The three steps

above are age-old and wise. Let’s see if we might

check them off before the final blast of the Shofar.

Lauren, Jake, Talia and Sadie join me in wishing

you and your families a happy, healthy, sweet, joyful

and meaningful New Year of 5759!

Early Childhood Center

Our Journey Begins….

WELCOME or WELCOME BACK to all of our families of the

Rabbi Barry H. Greene Early Childhood Center at TBJ! We

are delighted to be embarking on what promises to be yet

another extraordinary school year.

Whether you are returning to us, or whether this is your first

school year at TBJ, please know that you and your children

have a home-away-from-home with us here in the ECC. The

relationships and bonds that will form in the coming months,

within our doors and in the larger TBJ community, will

transcend the early childhood years. Consider this precious

time to be the foundation of what will hopefully be a lifetime

of engagement in learning, curiosity, spirituality, friendship,

kindness, gratitude, zest, and a love for others, life, and

our planet.

Certainly, these early moments of the Back-to-School season

are times of growth and transition for everyone. While this

time may come with a fair share of emotions for both

parents and children, please know that our doors are always

open and we have a committed team of professionals and

clergy members dedicated to ensuring that this school year

is a successful and meaningful one. We are looking forward

to getting to know all of our new families, and nurturing our

relationships with our old friends.

Extraordinary things are happening in our ECC! Our

passion for combining rigorous, empirical teaching methods

with practical wisdom of how to educate children in these

precious early years contributes to the strength of our

program. Research based educational philosophies that we

embrace include Carol Dweck’s theory on Growth Mindset,

Reggio Emilia’s principles of respect, responsibility, and

community through exploration and discovery and the use

of "a hundred languages,” Martin Seligman’s theories

of learned optimism, grit and perseverance in the field of

Positive Psychology, and Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman’s research

on motivation, creativity, imagination and well-being,

among many others.

curricula with modules on Character Strengths and virtues,

with an emphasis on cultivating KINDNESS, CREATIVITY,

CURIOUSITY, GRATITUDE and a LOVE of LEARNING in

all of our students.

We will be explicitly exploring character strengths and

virtues within children’s literature and teaching students

how to “spot strengths” in story characters, among their

peers, and within themselves. Strengths-spotting and subsequent

strengths-development have always been implicit in our

teaching philosophy and an integral part of our Bucket Filling

curriculum. We look forward to partnering with you in the

conversation around Strengths and Virtues, providing you

the opportunity to take the VIA Character Strengths

Survey, and working together to become a thriving community

of joyful.

Please take the opportunity to get involved in many of our

ECC initiatives, join our Parents’ Association meetings and

programs and become a vital part of our warm, inclusive,

and vibrant TBJ family! Most importantly, please know that

we never take your trust for granted and we appreciate you

entrusting us with your most precious gifts.

With warmest wishes for a very happy, healthy, sweet, and

peaceful New Year.

L’Shanah Tovah

Michele Feingold, ECC Director

Andrea Kessler, ECC Assistant Director

Working with experts in the field of Character Education and

Positive Psychology, the applied science of human flourishing,

we remain committed to infusing our faculty development,

social skills education, Shabbat celebrations, and literacy

Shabbat Atid (Shabbat of Our Future) will occur once a month on

Friday evenings during our regularly scheduled 5:30pm time slot.

We are regularly thinking about visioning for our future and are constantly asking

what might worship look like as the years progress here at TBJ. Accordingly, we

have created something unique to help us tangibly make our vision a reality.

Shabbat services will look the same – Shabbat Candles, Kiddush, beautiful singing,

wise words, inspiration, and warmth. On these Friday nights, you, the congregation,

will be our choir and our clergy will be joined by acclaimed musical artist, Matt

Turk, who will add his unique style to our worship experience.

We believe that Shabbat Atid, like its predecessor Shabbat B’Shir, will heighten our

Shabbat experience, move us in a new and exciting direction, and make our

communal prayer increasingly more spiritually meaningful and memorable. This

experience is appropriate for all ages and all are welcome!

Meet Our New Executive Director, Marc Rothstein

I am thrilled to here as your Executive

Director. Since I began at TBJ on June 1, it

has been a whirlwind. Not only did I begin

a new job, but my wife Shari and I relocated

from South Brunswick to Florham Park and

we are excited to be part of this community.

I came to TBJ after 4 years as Executive Director

at Temple Emanuel in Cherry Hill. Prior to

that, I had a 25 year career in corporate

finance after graduating from the University

of Connecticut with a BS in Accounting. I was a lay leader

at Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple and eventually was

elected president in 2011. I am a Senior Member of The

National Association of Temple Administration (NATA)

and I am Co-Chairing the 2018 National NATA Conference.

I am also an executive board member of ARZA. I am

married to Shari, who is the Associate Director of Education

at Temple Emanu-El in Westfield and we are proud parents

of Adam and Emily

I believe that the synagogue is the most significant

institution in the Jewish community and I look forward

to supporting, enabling and guiding you on your Jewish

journey.

In July I had the honor of speaking at a Shabbat Service.

I spoke about the journey that Moses led to the promised

land and compared my role in helping you

get to your promised land. I see my role, in

partnership with staff, clergy and leadership,

to provide the tools, resources, leadership and

guidance and to embue the strength and courage

to enable each of you to get to your promised

land. I work with our staff to enable you to

be comfortable on your Jewish journey.

I understand that my promised land may

be different than yours, I have learned over

the years in the executive director position, that my promised

land is seeing you get to your promised land. What can you

do for me as we embark on this journey together? I ask you

to share with me the oys and the joys of your life. I ask you

to share with me what you like about TBJ and what you’d

like to see. I hope you will be there to support me when I

might stumble, point me in the right direction if I get lost

and cheer for me when we accomplish amazing things.

As we head into the new year 5779, I ask that you share

your hopes, your dreams and your visions with me so that we

can get to our promised land walking hand in hand together.

I wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous

New Year.

The Rosalind & Alfred Lippman Gallery

LINDA LEVITT...A HAPPY JOURNEY

My artistic career has been a process that has taken me

down many paths. Five years ago I started formal training .

My creative juices were released when I first started to cook.

Once I had just a little confidence I invited friends for dinner

and that involved setting an appealing table, I realized then

that I loved to make things exciting, different and beautiful.

The feedback I got gave me the confidence to do anything

that interested me. I knew I could do it.

Tie dying was my next adventure. I had a national sales

rep for my scarf line, dying shirts and scarves for 2 different

manufacturers and dying upholstery fabric for local

decorators. A retail store followed which specialized in

everything for the dining room, of course. This led me to

silk flower arranging for the dining table and then on to

fresh flowers for weddings and large parties.

A friend had been trying for years for me to begin quilting but my grammar school battles with a sewing machine

had left me completely disinterested. Finally one day she insisted I visit her home and witness how much better sewing

machines had become. Within 30 seconds I was completely smitten. I bought a used machine, made a few art quilts and

discovered thread painting. It is an arduous process that I am completely in love with - the sewing machine becomes the

brush. I have moved from flat pieces to three dimensional works to free standing sculptures.

In the past three years oil painting has become an exciting part of the mix. I love both mediums and am having so

much fun progressing in both. What the future holds I do not know but I am having an amazing experience on the way.

The Caring Community needs your help......

The Caring Community Committee is interested in presenting a panel discussion next Spring, dealing with important

issues that affect aging today - specifically, sociological, housing, financial, legal, estate planning, case management, etc.

Do you work in any of these older adult fields? Can you offer any expertise in these fields? Can you help us help

educate the temple community?

If so, please be in touch with Faith Fisch, TBJ Social Work Consultant

Thanks! -Faith

The Future of Liberal Judaism

Cantor Howard M. Stahl

Sundays, 9:45am-11:15am

October 7, 14, 28th

Liberal Judaism was the redemptive force that transformed

Judaism in 19th century Europe and, arguably, 20th century

in America. Now, in the 21st century, as the Millennial

Generation assumes the mantle of religious leadership,

liberal Judaism continues to experiment with modalities

while re-examining its goals Will liberal Judaism flourish

or fail? Join Cantor Stahl as we explore the fascinating

journey of liberal Judaism and attempt to answer these

important questions.
