 The fall holiday season on the Jewish calendar does not end with Yom Kippur.

     The biblically-ordained holiday of Sukkot begins  on Wednesday evening, October 4 – the Wednesday evening following Yom Kippur.  Sukkot is a seven day holiday described in the Torah, which is celebrated for two reasons.  It commemorates the forty years the Israelites spent wandering in the Sinai wilderness after their liberation from Egyptian slavery.  During that forty year period, they lived in temporary dwellings called sukkot in Hebrew (plural of sukkah).  It is also celebrated as a harvest festival on which we express our gratitude to God for providing us with food to sustain us.  The Pilgrims were avid readers of the Bible and they patterned the American holiday of Thanksgiving after Sukkot.

     OUR SUKKOT SERVICE BEGINS AT 7;30 P.M. ON WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 4.  FOLLOWING THE SERVICE, CONGREGANTS WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT THE TEMPLE’S OUTDOOR SUKKAH AND BECAUSE SUKKOT IS CELEBRATED AS A HARVEST FESTIVAL, THERE WILL BE A HARVEST DESSERT BONANZA.  CONGREGANTS ARE ASKED TO BRING FRUIT AND VEGETABLE PRODUCTS – SYMBOLS OF THE HARVEST – FOR CONSUMPTION BY THOSE IN ATTENDANCE.  THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME POSSIBILITIES:  VEGETABLE PLATTER, POTATO DISHES (KNISHES), FRESH FRUIT, FRUIT PIE, NUTS, BEANS, ETC. 

     Our Sh’mini Atzeret-Simchat Torah service will be held at 7:30 P.M. on Wednesday evening, October 11, and will include Yizkor as well as the completion of the annual Torah reading cycle, with a lot of singing and marching around the sanctuary with our Torahs.  According to tradition, there are only two times a year when it is permissible for a Jewish person to get a little tipsy.  One of these occasions is on Purim and the other is on Simchat Torah.  So following the service on Wednesday evening, October 11, there will be a WINE AND CHEESE CELEBRATION.  CONGREGANTS ARE ASKED TO BRING WINE, CHEESE OR CRACKERS FOR CONSUMPTION BY THOSE IN ATTENDANCE.

     These are both fun holidays.  I hope you will plan to attend.

FROM THE PRESIDENT:

Dear Members & Friends,

My first obligation is to thank all of you that participated or helped in any way to make the High Holidays run so smoothly. Rabbi, the services were so well conducted and the comments from our visitors were so complimentary.  Many said it was a joy to  be part of Temple Shalom services.

I have been asked how do I get a leaf for the Tree of life. Just fill out a form that can be picked up at Temple or send me the information.  Each leaf is $50.00 and they tell the stories of our congregation.

The Memorial board is in memory of dear ones that have passed away and we light the light on the anniversary of their death. Each plaque is $200.00 You pay $100.00 when ordering and the balance when it is delivered.

As we start the fall season we look forward to many activities around the Temple. such as the Rabbi's Adult education group, Shabbat dinners, Mah Jongg Marathon, Hanukkah  Happening as well as all the programs sponsored by Sisterhood.

If you really want to feel a part of Temple-attend services,  participate in the activities, volunteer to help on different projects,  sit in on Board Meetings, You might also talk to the Rabbi about leading a Shabbat service.

We are always open to new and novel ideas. Bring them  to me or Cookie and maybe it will be your idea that is implemented.  Belonging to the Temple only works when YOU work for it.

Ze'ev and I wish each of you a healthy, happy and prosperous year ahead,

 

Lily Ann Revitch                                                                                                                     President Temple Shalom
