Participate in Tikkun Olam by Voting this Season, and by Helping Others to Do So - As Well

  • As September ends and October begins, we turn to the Jewish festival of Sukkot. Sukkot is the holiday on which, some scholars claim, our American holiday of Thanksgiving was based.
  • During Sukkot, we celebrate the harvest, and give thanks for the bounty in our lives - both of which come from the land and the myriad of other blessings all around us. As we dwell in our sukkahs - fragile huts or booths, we remember that these blessings are not to be taken for granted…they are precious gifts we should recognize, appreciate, and use.
  • By the time you read this issue, Sukkot will just be beginning. The sukkahs, the temporary booths we will build and sometimes dwelt in will remain up for the week; then disappear. However, they will soon be replaced - by a new pop-up “booth”, one that, like its predecessor can also remind us of our blessings. That is the voting booth.
  • We generally take the right to vote for granted, but we should not. Although African Americans were granted the right to vote with the enactment of the 15th Amendment in 1870, it took the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to fully enfranchise them. And it was only a century ago this year, in 1920, that women won the right to vote. Voting is both a right and a privilege of citizens living in a democracy.
  • The right to vote is not only American; it is also Jewish. Judaism values government, and mandates that we uphold and support it. The duty to create and support government is so important that it is one of the few duties that Jewish law recognizes for all, Jew and non-Jew alike (Talmud Sanhedrin 56a). The Mishnah - the earliest codification of Jewish law, instructs us to “Pray for the welfare of the government, for were it not for the fear/respect of it, humans would swallow one another alive.” (Pirkei Avot 3.2) In the Talmud, our sages teach that the law of the land must be followed as much as, if not more than, Jewish law. By choosing to become citizens of a nation, we enter into a contract with that society. This obligates us to honor that nation’s civil laws in exchange for one's respective government’s protection and benefits.
  • Voting is a vital privilege and responsibility of democracy. However, voter suppression has long plagued the U.S. election system, making it far from guaranteed that every person will be able to participate in the system. Communities of color are denied equal access to the ballot on a regular basis. This year, voting is more complicated than usual; because of the pandemic, we need to rely on absentee ballots to enfranchise those whose health would be endangered by voting in person.
  • Temple Tikvah is endorsing the Religious Action Center’s (RAC) 2020 Civic Engagement Campaign. The campaign encourages all US citizens to exercise their right to vote and breaks down obstacles that shut some out of the voting booth. Members of our community have already written postcards to encourage voters to vote, and to help them make sure they are registered to do so. This month there will be opportunities to participate in text banks and phone banks on a local level and across the country. We will also be mobilizing voters in our own community.

Every voice counts! - We need all our voices at the polls!

Hand and Heart…The Traditions of Tzedakah

  • I would like to thank all of you for the opportunity and privilege of being the President of our Congregation. For those of you who do not know, Marc and I have been members of Temple Tikvah since 2009 and have raised our two daughters here. My family’s history dates back to the founding of Temple Emanuel and Marc’s family has a long history at their temple in New Jersey. Judaism has held and always will hold a significant place in our lives and hopefully our children’s as they become adults and have families of their own.
  • None of us is certain what our future will bring…How will we make it through the winter with COVID looming, what will the face of businesses look like, how will our children make it through a semester of school? There are so many unanswered questions.
  • Theodore Herzl said, “Im tirtzu ein zo agada. - If you will it, it is no dream."
  • Temple Tikvah has many strengths. They include providing a home of stability, a place of consistency, and a place of connection to our community. We need and value all of these strengths, especially during the current pandemic and climate. If you will it, it is no dream.
  • Through this pandemic Temple has found new ways to connect and care for each other, while at the same time remaining true to our identity and our values. We have worked hard to continue the programing you have come to love and look forward to, as well as to be available to you as a place of spiritual connection.
  • In order to continue to be a source of support and comfort, to continue building for our future - we need YOU. With this altered reality we have faced a shortfall of thousands of dollars due to lack of rentals and the financial impact that the pandemic has brought on so many of you.
  • This foundation that is part of my family history and part of each of your history and future depends on us. We need to come together in this unique moment to contribute something, so we can secure a future for our children and our children’s children.
  • If you will it, it is no dream. These have been difficult times for all of us and we have been faced with extraordinary challenges to meet the needs of our community, but as a community we can overcome them. It is for this reason that I am asking you to participate in tzedakah and help support our Temple Tikvah community. For those of you visiting us, we welcome your support and tzedakah too. Together we can continue to be a vibrant community demonstrating our commitment to Judaism and its future.

L’Shana Tova…Happy, healthy and sweet New Year to all of you and your families.

TIKVAH TOTS

TRACY CHIREL & NICOLE TAYLOR

Education is for Improving the Lives of Others and for Leaving Your Community and the World Better Than You Found It…Marian Wright Edelman

  • When we think of social action, we often think of grandiose events - climate change, voting rights, anti-racism. However, even the littlest kids can make big changes. They often do mitzvot without being asked such as: hugging an elderly neighbor, offering to play with a lonely child on the playground, sharing their Legos with a sibling, and helping a grownup with cooking. Little kids have big hearts and as a community we can support their natural tendencies to do good in the world by offering encouragement and praising their kind deeds. As we move through the Fall season and approach Sukkot, take care in noticing the kind acts of your Tots and suggest other ways they can take social action by perhaps, adding a decoration to our Temple sukkah or giving the painting made at one of our events to a grandparent who has been kept at a distance.
  • We hope you join us at our First in Person Tot Event on October 4th at 12:30pm. We will also host our First Friday Tikvah Tot Shabbat on October 23rd at 6:30pm. Please RSVP to us at tikvahtots@templetikvah.org and ask to join our mailing list if you are not on it. We look forward to seeing you and your children!

  • On Saturday October 3rd and 17th we will have Junior Congregation Services outside (weather permitting) from 9:45 - 10:30am. We will be reviewing our prayers, singing, and talking about the Torah portions.
  • On Sunday October 4th we will have an outdoor Family Program during Hebrew School hours. We will have a sukkah making craft, as well as an opportunity to shake your lulav in our sukkah. We hope you can attend this event. It will be a wonderful opportunity to see your Temple family and friends.
  • On Saturday October 24th there will be an outdoor Family Havdalah, followed by an evening activity open to the entire Congregation.
  • For those of you that participated in our Pen Pal Program we would like to run it again, so if you are interested please contact me and I will send you more information.
  • Please do not forget to RSVP via email to cheryl@templetikvah.org for any events or if you have questions.

Participation is Key!

At this time the meaning and practice of tikkun olam is more important and relevant than ever before. So, we would like to share with you some pertinent information, as written in Learning to Give by Jennifer Noparstak (Learning to Give Website, at http://www.learningtogive.org).

  • TIKKUN OLAM - A Jewish concept defined by acts of kindness performed to perfect or repair the world. The phrase is found in the Mishnah, a body of classical rabbinic teachings. It is often used when discussing issues of social policy, insuring a safeguard to those who may be at a disadvantage. In modern Jewish circles, tikkun olam has become synonymous with the notion of social action and the pursuit of social justice.
  • IMPORTANCE - The most modern and broadly understood notion of tikkun olam is that of "repairing the world" through human actions. Humanity's responsibility to change, improve, and fix its earthly surroundings is powerful. It implies that each person has a hand in working towards the betterment of his or her own existence as well as the lives of future generations. Tikkun olam forces people to take ownership of their world. It is them, not G-d, who will bring the world back to its original state of holiness. More simply, it is important for Jews to participate in repairing the world by participating in tzedakah (justice and righteousness) and g'milut hasadim (acts of loving kindness). Without their stake in the improvement of their environment, injustice and evil will continue to exist.
  • TIES TO THE PHILANTHROPIC SECTOR - Tikkun olam embodies the spirit of philanthropy. Increasing the well-being of humankind is one of the key elements of repairing the world. Helping those who are in need, no matter in what capacity, is crucial and "holy" work. Tikkun olam, as it relates to practical methods, applies to working in all communities, not just Jewish communities. Jews are members of greater society, and as such, their actions are not limited to their own communities. Social welfare and volunteer work, as well as the donation of monetary and physical resources, are ways in which people can be philanthropically involved, and at the same time, be involved in tikkun olam.
  • UPCOMING EVENTS: On Thursday, October 1st there will be a ZOOM 1:00pm Meeting of the Afternoon Book Club. The book The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson will be reviewed & On Tuesday, October 13th there will be a ZOOM 7:30pm Meeting of the Book Club. The book Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid will be reviewed • On Tuesday, October 20th there will be a ZOOM 7:30pm Meeting of the Creative Writing Group The date of the next Caring Community Meeting TBA.

Here is to a healthy, less stressful New Year...STAY WELL & STAY SAFE

social action

Elaine Brooks, Judy Kirschner & Elaine Weiss

Let Us Fix, Not Undo, The World as We Know It

  • As we continue into Fall, we will be celebrating a Social Action Shabbat on October 23rd (still online it seems.) The recent High Holidays provided an opportunity for reflection on how we might incorporate social action into such celebrations as Sukkot, Simchat Torah, and the New Year we have begun.
  • There are many ways the Social Action Committee practices tikkun olam or repairing our world. Sukkot is a joyful time for many of us, yet it also reminds us of the difficulties some people live with (lack of good housing, healthy food, warm clothing or safety from the potential dangers of our environment, such as the recent fires on our west coast) and there are a variety of ways we can respond, individually or as a group/community. A speaker from the INN (Interfaith Nutritional Network) will be participating in our Social Action Shabbat to inform us of the many services it provides, and especially about The Center for Performative Change.
  • One may consider ways to honor farmers and farm workers who provide us with essential foods by perhaps hosting a “warm-up” clothing drive or by informing ourselves further about housing and homeless issues. Temple Tikvah for many years has run a fall rummage sale, where we have collected such items as coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and socks to keep people warm as winter approaches, and we participated in an interfaith service close to Thanksgiving. How would you like to repair the world in this new year? Let us know about your interests and activities, and what you may want to spearhead or join.
  • A good way to start is to VOTE on November 3rd if you have not already done so. If you need/want help, let us know. We work best together! We wish you joyful celebrations and a strong spirit for the work ahead.
  • Here are suggestions to consider: Historically devastating wildfires in Oregon, California, and Washington are still raging out of control. 500,000 people have been ordered to evacuate in Oregon, with the possibility of more as fires approach Portland. Millions of acres are on fire and whole towns have burned to the ground. Thousands of people have lost their homes and all their possessions, and the COVID-19 Pandemic has hampered relief efforts. There are thousands of families without power, drinkable water, medical supplies, safe shelter, and access to food. If you are looking for ways to aid the relief efforts, please consider giving to these charities assisting victims in California, Oregon, and Washington: United Way of Lane County • Oregon Food Bank • Food Bank Contra Costa & Solano • Latino Community Foundation Wildfire Relief Fund • United Way of Benton & Lincoln Counties • United Way of the Columbia - Willamette • UndocuFund Sonoma County • Okanogan County Community Action Council • United Way of Linn County Ashland Emergency Food Bank (AEFB) • Opportunities Industrialization Center of Washington (OIC) • Food Bank for Monterey County • Redwood Empire Food Bank • Rural Resources Community Action • Marion-Polk Food Share United Community Action Network • Greater Douglas United Way • Puente - Fire Relief Fund • United Way of The Mid - Willamette Valley • United Way of Jackson • Rogue Climate • Rogue Action Center •

Every Vote Counts! In the last presidential election only 57% of eligible voters participated.

They may not always do what you want, however they have to listen to your opinions. You can make the system better. It may never be perfect, yet improvement is possible.

As the New Year Begins – Education, Faith & Hope Must Prevail

  • Lunch & Learn - Julie Schwietert Collazo, from Immigrant Families Together, has written a memoir entitled, The Book of Rosy along with Rosayra Pablo Cruz. The book starts out in the detention center in Arizona, goes back and chronicles Rosayra's childhood in Guatemala, the post-detention reunification with her sons, and how they are now building a life in New York. • Join us for Lunch & Learn on ZOOM (details will be in the Weekly Update) on Saturday, October 17th at 11:30am. We will meet both Julie and Rosayra, hear a little of the book and how they met, learn about Immigrant Families Together and immigration policy, and have time for Q & A. I hope to see you there.
  • Torah Study: Shabbat Morning Torah Study continues every Saturday at 9:00am via ZOOM, with Rabbi Randy Sheinberg. We are coming out of the High Holiday season and resume our Torah reading schedule in mid-October at the very beginning with Genesis, also called B’reishit. We will read the stories of our ancestors once again and see how they, even with their imperfections are still an inspiration to us today. No experience or prior knowledge is required. All are welcome. The ZOOM link will be published in the Weekly Update each week.
  • Hyperlinks: All ZOOM information and links are available in the Weekly Updates. Please look to the flyers at the bottom of the Updates for Lifelong Learning Resources with live hyperlinks to a variety of things to do. If you have any suggestions, feel free to share them with me at lifelonglearning@templetikvah.org.

Please continue to remain safe & well.

sisterhood

President - Phyllis Richards

We Vow to Continue Mitzvot As a Group of Committed Women

  • At Simchat Torah we are celebrating the Torah cycle being renewed, moving from end to beginning. This year especially we have successfully gone through difficult times and now we must renew our commitment to keep our focus, to find happiness in our lives, and to continue to help those in need of finding that happiness.
  • What can Sisterhood do to fulfill its goals of helping our Temple, our members, and various charities when we have to deal with the world in virtual reality? Yes, it is more limiting and difficult, however not impossible when working with a determined group of dedicated women.
  • There are many ways we have raised funds and can continue to raise funds to help various charities and our Temple - perhaps you bought honey to send to family and friends, where the proceeds of this sale were given to Temple; or have you been receiving birthday or anniversary greetings from Temple members; or maybe you have been sending Simcha Greetings, which are a great way to acknowledge Temple friends without having the hassle of going to a store to purchase greeting cards in this Covid-19 environment – where all you have to do is look for the next mailing inviting you to participate; or you can even now commemorate a special occasion or memory by sponsoring a Shabbat Simcha. Look for the flyer in the Weekly Updates. Although we cannot physically be together in Temple Tikvah, we certainly can and will acknowledge your special occasions or memories during our well attended virtual services.

“Simchat Torah compels us to be thankful for our family, our friends, our sacred partners in the work of tikkun olam.” - Chris Harrison

brotherhood

We are Continuing to Rejoice in Our Faith and One Another

  • It is now October 2020 and we are still not quite back inside our sanctuary for services, yet Brotherhood is moving forward one day at a time and staying quite busy.
  • In September we honored 3 of Temple Tikvah’s B’nai Mitzvah with gifts.
  • Brotherhood also donated once again to the PJ Library. The PJ Library mails free Jewish children’s books and music to families with Jewish children as gifts. We are proud to donate to this wonderful program.

  • We meet the first Wednesday of each month and currently we are meeting on ZOOM. The ZOOM link is handled by me, so please contact me for the information.
  • And finally, as many of you know or maybe you do not, On the Marc Sports Talk is a weekly hour plus sports talk show we do on ZOOM every Thursday at 4pm. We started this over 4 months ago and we are still going strong! We would love to have new people join us. The ZOOM link is in the Temple's Weekly Update. So why not click it and you join us…and it is freebie. You are more than welcome to join in on our conversations or simply just sit back and listen. BTW - if you missed any of our old shows you can now catch-up on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Pandora or Apple TV (podcasts); search for On the Marc Sports Talk and you will find our fancy logo and you can listen.

Do not forget that as we prepare to restart this year’s Torah cycle during these times, we still have alot to celebrate!
