  3. 3. 3 Counting Our Blessings Break the Silence A challenge so compelling, so urgent, so timely faces us all: It is time to break the silence surrounding the many issues of mental health in contemporary society. We are all touched by the many facets of this reality. Our friends, our neighbors, our loved ones live lives of silence, often afraid to talk about their struggles and pain. Especially among our teens and young adults, the shame that so often accompanies the many GLIÀFXOWLHV RI OLYLQJ ZLWK GHSUHVVLRQ DQ[LHW VXEVWDQFH XVH and abuse, eating disorders and more weighs heavily on the spirit. Beginning now, we invite our congregation to break this silence and to begin a conversation about what we must do to change this reality.

In recent years, mental health issues have become a common concern for our families. Increasing numbers of congregations have begun to develop responses and programs that speak to the Jewish view of health and wellness. We want to create a safe, supportive place of care, strength and learning at Shaare Emeth, and respond to the need of raising awareness and reducing the stigma within our congregations regarding individuals and families who are dealing ZLWK PHQWDO KHDOWK LVVXHV :H ZLOO FROOHFWLYHO ÀJXUH RXW KRZ ZH FDQ KHOS HDFK RWKHU ZKDW ZH FDQ GR WR PDNH D GLIIHUHQFH DQG KRZ WR KHOS RXU FRPPXQLW KHOS XV 3OHDVH MRLQ XV IRU D VFUHHQLQJ RI WKH ÀOP Race to Nowhere on Wednesday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. at Shaare Emeth.

  4. 4. 4 You are invited to join Rabbi Jim and Amy Bennett on a Congregation Shaare Emeth Jewish Heritage Tour to Eastern Europe (BERLIN-PRAGUE-BUDAPEST-KRAKOW-WARSAW) March 31-APRIL 14, 2016 O ur Jewish heritage and family experiences are deeply interwoven into the map of Eastern Europe. We will explore over a thousand years of Jewish history as we wind our way through the stories, villages and people from Berlin to Prague to Budapest to Krakow to Warsaw. Along the way, and under guidance of skilled and experienced local tour guides, we will explore the highs and lows of our people’s journey through these beautiful and vibrant lands, exploring our own personal journeys as well as we travel through some of the most historic and beautiful cities in Europe. For a detailed itinerary and more information, please visit or contact Gloria Schwartz at 314-692-5302 or From the Clergy Becoming Aware…of Breast Cancer O ctober, as many are aware, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The purpose of this time is to raise awareness about the disease and provide education for families that will help them become the best advocates for their health and bodies that they can be. It is important for women of Ashkenazi descent, in particular, to make sure that know the facts about increased risks that they may face. Researchers have determined that women of Ashkenazi descent have an increased genetic susceptibility to breast cancer and ovarian cancer. One in four men and women of Ashkenazi descent carries a genetic mutation that greatly increases the risk of developing these cancers. Women who carry this mutation have up to an 80% risk of developing breast cancer and up to a 45% risk of developing ovarian cancer. If you or your partner is of Ashkenazi descent, genetic counseling and testing can help determine if either of you carries this gene mutation. I learned a great deal about these genetic links to breast and ovarian cancers this summer in speaking with representatives from Sharsheret Supports here in St. Louis. Sharsheret is a QDWLRQDO QRQSURÀW RUJDQL]DWLRQ WKDW VXSSRUWV RXQJ ZRPHQ and their families of all Jewish backgrounds who are facing breast and ovarian cancers. In Hebrew, the word Sharsheret means “chain,” and this organization is creating strong links in a chain across St. Louis so that women and families who are facing the challenges of breast or ovarian cancer do not have to GR VR DORQH 7KHLU SURJUDPV DUH WDLORUHG WR ÀW HDFK LQGLYLGXDO woman and family, and their mission is carried out with compassion and warmth. In St. Louis, Sharsheret Supports is sponsored by Nishmah: The St. Louis Jewish Women’s Project. If you or someone you love is battling cancer or any other illness, Shaare Emeth wants to be here for you. Our Caring Community offers a number of programs and services, including meals that can be delivered to your home, and a monthly Service of Wholeness of Hope, where we come together to ÀQG VSLULWXDO VWUHQJWK DQG VXSSRUW ,I RX ZRXOG OLNH PRUH information about any of these opportunities, please contact me at 314-569-0010 or To learn more about Sharsheret visit May October be a month of health and support, learning and caring for us all.

  5. 5. 5 Shaare the Vision B ack in August, I attended a luncheon with members of our Tzedek committee, clergy and staff. 7KH OXQFKHRQ ZDV WKH ÀUVW 'RLQJ 0RUH Good Awards Luncheon in honor of the 150th anniversary of the Salvation Army. At the luncheon a number of entities and people were honored for doing more good in our overall community. We attended because Shaare Emeth was honored with the Faith Partner award for our efforts in social justice and advocacy in the community. We were the only religious organization in the community recognized. This honor reminded me just how many things our congregation is involved in throughout the community in addition to being our spiritual home. I mention this because by providing so many programs, education opportunities, and support to so many people, our resources and facility are not just a resource to us, they are a resource and support system for the entire community. As you recall from my speech at the High Holy Days, we have embarked on the Shaare the Vision campaign for the future of the congregation. As you will learn over the course of the next few months, your temple leadership has many suggestions of how to bring our facilities up to current standards of access and XVH ZKLOH DOVR JURZLQJ RXU HQGRZPHQWV WR HQDEOH XV WR IXOÀOO our mission and provide for our future.

I ask that each of you will with an open mind attend one of the informational forums we will be offering about the Shaare the Vision project and that you will contribute in a way that is appropriate for you. Together with our collective strength we can provide for the future of our Congregation and brighten its light knowing we have the resources and facilities to enable our mission and goals of making the world a better place.

First, we have a new section at the cemetery—84 new two-grave family lots. These affordable lots allow you to have a family monument as well as foot markers. Located on a beautiful hill in the newest area of New Mt. Sinai, these lots are sure to be a popular choice for couples looking for property just for the two of them. Call now to schedule an appointment to see these new two- grave lots. The cemetery has also just purchased a new pressure washer to clean the many structures around our historic grounds. If you have monuments or markers on your family’s lot or grave and those stones have become dingy over the years, we can now offer very reasonable prices to clean the stones. As a member of Shaare Emeth, one of our owner congregations, you qualify for a GLVFRXQWHG UDWH RQWDFW RXU RIÀFH WRGD DQG PDNH DUUDQJHPHQWV to have your loved ones’ resting place “spruced up.” Dan Brodsky, Executive Director, New Mt.
