2009 Etz Chaim Dinner Journal

  1. 1. ———Congregation Etz Chaim——— Presidents’ Message Dear Members and Friends, We wish to welcome all of our members, their families, and guests to the 12th Annual Etz Chaim Dinner. It is always exciting to celebrate together the continued growth of our Congregation. Our shul is unique in its ability to act together and to provide a warm atmosphere for everyone - young or old. Together, we celebrate simchas, but more importantly we support each other in times of adversity and need. Our shul family truly exemplifies the meaning of Achdut and Unity. As Presidents of Congregation Etz Chaim, we have tried in our first year to build on the wonderful work of our predecessors. We hope that some of the new activities that we introduced have met with your approval. As we revel in the past year’s achievements, we are looking forward together, with all of you, to growing our shul community in the coming year. We would like to thank all of our members for their support for our shul and for the many hours that they have dedicated to volunteering in the past year. Without your involvement, we would not have been able to "run" so many meaningful and successful programs. It is also with great appreciation that we acknowledge Rabbi and Rebbetzin Krupka for leading our community. We also thank our assistant rabbi, Rabbi Natan Kapustin, and our youth directors, Rabbi Yaakov and Orly Nadler, for their tireless efforts on behalf of Etz Chaim. This Dinner marks the mid-point of our presidency. We have been privileged to work on your behalf during the last year. We would like to thank our officers, the board and the past presidents for giving of their time, in serving the Congregation and for making our jobs so meaningful. We wish you all a wonderful summer. Wayne Zuckerman Dr. Daniel Pascheles Co-President Co-President 12th Annual Dinner Celebration
  2. 2. ———Congregation Etz Chaim———   Rabbi Shlomo Krupka’s Message In this week’s parsha, Naso, Hashem tells the sons of Aaron, appointed as the Kohanim, to bless the Jewish people. It is this Blessing of the Kohanim, a three part blessing, that is incor- porated in our present day siddur and sung on high holidays. It is followed by a very interesting verse in which Hashem says “Let them place My Name upon the children of Israel and I shall bless them.” The commentators argue to whom Hashem refers when He says “… and I shall bless them.” Rashi brings forth two explanations. His first interpretation, “…and I shall bless them” refers to Hashem’s agreement with the Kohanim that it is their blessing of the people that He will reinforce. The second interpretation of Rashi is that Hashem is telling the Kohanim that by their blessing his people, He will in turn bless them and their families. Both messages speak to us as we celebrate another milestone at Etz Chaim. So many people give of their time for the shul on an ongoing basis, whether attending minyan, creating and at- tending programs, or dedicating long hours to raising funds in order to meet our budget. All of these actions enhance our shul. Every action by each individual requires the blessing of Hashem to make it successful. It is truly with the blessing of Hashem that we have grown from ten families to nearly one hundred fifty in twelve years. It is with Hashem’s constant blessing that we meet the challenges of our time. But how does one repay those who bless us with their efforts and hard work? The answer lies in Rashi’s second interpretation that those who bless us are in turn blessed by Hashem. Within our lives it is this chain of blessings from those who share of their time to Hashem who gives us the blessing of time and health. I would like to especially thank Daniel Pascheles and Wayne Zuckerman, who dedicate so much time, and the many others, unseen and unknown to most (except their Rabbi) who devote themselves to the growth of Etz Chaim. May Hashem in turn bless them for all the blessings they give us, and may His abundance overflow to all of theirs. It is the miracle of the generations that so many millennia later, the children of Aaron, the Ko- hanim, are still blessing our people and continue to be blessed by Hashem. May Etz Chaim be so blessed as well. May all of the talent that we harness continue to grow in purpose and in numbers this Bat Mitzvah year. Amen. 12th Annual Dinner Celebration
  3. 3. ———Congregation Etz Chaim——— Youth Directors’ Message The holiday of Shavuot has just passed, but the message of Shavuot is eternal. The Hebrews had to prove that they could be entrusted with the Torah. As the Midrash re- veals, G-d demanded a guaranty that his precious gift would be cherished for eternity. All of the proposals brought forward by the Hebrews were rejected until their children were offered as guarantors. This reflects what we all know deep in our hearts; our sur- vival and our legacy is solely dependent on our children. How will the Jewish people continue to illuminate the world with the light of the Torah? The Midrash teaches us that our children are the reason that we were entrusted to receive the Torah and that they will be the ones with the awesome responsibility to continue to pass on the torch. By providing our children with warmth and excitement about being Jewish, we are en- suring that this precious gift is passed on to future generations. As the Youth Directors at Etz Chaim, we are proud to serve as your partners in instilling a love for Judaism in your children. As adults, we have to juggle numerous responsibilities but nevertheless the parents at Etz Chaim are enthusiastic about Shabbat and make a strong effort to include their children in the synagogue. Together, we try to instill in our children excitement about coming to shul on Shabbat. In this vain, Shabbat groups are filled with fun filled activi- ties: we play games, sing songs and create a congregation for the children who are preparing to become active adult members of the Shul. What we create here at the Youth Department of Congregation Etz Chaim, is a home, a warm, loving and safe environment for our youth to come together to celebrate their lives. From social programming to Chessed, we run the gamut in order to help our youth develop into creative, socially active, thinking Jewish adults. We have a wonder- ful sense of family in our youth department and we are always looking for ways to wel- come your children. May we continue to see an abundance of nachas from all our children!
