  2. 2. Report to Donors“Terumot HaKodesh—Sacred Gifts”September 2009Tishrei 5770Dear Friends,I n a famous Torah scene, Moses is urged to ask the ancient Israelites to cease from their contributions. “The people are bringing more than is needed for the sake of the tasks entailed in the work that the Lord has commanded to be done.” (Exodus 35:5)I doubt that it has ever happened since! I know no Jewish organization that puts a cap oncontributions. Truthfully, I wish we could. But, as one synagogue leader told me manyyears ago, “If we could afford everything we’re doing, we wouldn’t be doing enough!”The gifts Moses received to erect the Mishkan, the portable wilderness Tabernacle, andthen asked to stop collecting, were called “Terumot HaKodesh–Sacred Gifts.” This is how Iunderstand each and every contribution made to our synagogue community.Your choice to donate to Chizuk Amuno reflects your values, and demonstrates that yousense something sacred and important happens here. All of us are gratified by your sacredgift, your involvement, and your trust.Our vision for synagogue life is that we become a Kehilah Kedoshah, a sacred community.Dedicated to strengthening faith in our people’s covenant with God, the purpose ofChizuk Amuno Congregation is to create a sacred Jewish community. Here individualsand families can find meaning for their lives from serious engagement with the texts,wisdom, and celebrations of Judaism.Synagogue membership, as Judaism, is based in covenant - brit, shared responsibilities andprivileges. Covenant compels us, and it makes demands of us. Just as God commands ourperformance of mitzvot as a holy people, so too does belonging to a sacred communityrequire us to honor the expectations and standards of Torah.This is why I cite to Moses’ successful fundraising. In a sacred, covenanted community acontribution can be understood as a terumat hakodesh - a sacred gift. Different offerings ofequal significance sustain the community and provide for every member’s needs.I extend my thanks and genuine gratitude to each and every one of you recognized in thisreport. Your support and involvement enable our religious and communal values to guideour work on behalf of our families, the Jewish people, and our society. May we continueto need your generous gifts so that our sacred community continues to extend its reach.B’Shalom Rav,Ronald J. Shulman,Rabbi

  7. 7. Zaiman Educational AllianceEstablished to honor Rabbi Zaiman’s 23 years of leadership and service toChizuk Amuno, the Zaiman Educational Alliance encourages and rewardsinnovative, collaborative educational initiatives among the schools at ChizukAmuno and seeks to strengthen the bonds of the Chizuk Amuno communitythrough new expressions of Torah (study), Avodah (worship), and GemilutHasadim (acts of loving kindness).In the past year, ZEA funds were used for two important initiatives. The Shuk,an Israeli based Jewish music ensemble spent three days at Chizuk Amuno,sharing their love and knowledge of music with educators and students.Workshops and song sessions were held with students from Krieger SchechterDay School, Goldsmith Early Childhood Education Center, Netivon, andRosenbloom Religious School, where participants experienced the musicaltradition that bonds Jews together while exploring new modes of Jewish musicalinterpretation. The group also held an Erev Zemer (sing-a-long) for the entireadult community.In addition, the ZEA awarded a $10,000 grant to support the CAC Archives.Funds were used to support this in-house archival resource often used tofacilitate educational initiatives. Within the Chizuk Amuno archival collectionare items reflecting the founding of Conservative Judaism; halackhic debates onmixed seating and women’s ritual equality; development of the land of Israel;immigrant acculturation and adaptation; interfaith relations; and the evolutionof American ritual practice. Through original sources housed in the archives,students directly touch the lives of people in the past revealing their values andattitudes.Zaiman Educational Alliance Endowment FundsRenee and Stanton Ades Traci and Mark Lerner Jessica and Michael Bronfein Bernard Manekin Family FundMildred and Edward Attman & Family Vivian and Bernard Manekin z”l Phyllis and Leonard Attman & Family Marsha and Richard Manekin The Family of Seymour Attman z”l Vivian and Robert ManekinDrs.
