We will have a security guard and two SJC ushers in the sanctuary lobby. This additional security is unfortunately a sign of the times, but we want you to feel comfortable while at services. We will have similar security measures at our Yom Kippur services. Several weeks ago, I was looking at the SJC newsletter, and I clicked on the tab for our history. I was surprised that there was very little there to read about. For SJC s twentieth year, I would like to see a more formal history of our congregation prepared. If you are interested in working on this, please contact me. You may already have a written history, or be in possession of photos or other important documents. You might also be a new member who is interested enough in the congregation to dive into its history. Whatever it is, please let me know if you are interested in working on this project. And finally, to all of you who have donated your time and efforts to Seaside during the past year, a big THANK YOU. We are an organization of volunteers, and our volunteers are absolutely the best. Sponsor Oneg-Kiddush Have a Mitzvah? Do a Mitzvah! Be the Mitzvah! Host an Oneg Shabbat or Kiddush lunch. Celebrate your birthday, anniversary, or other special milestone with SJC or just because. Contact Irene Ullmann at or to reserve a date. Check out details for sponsoring at seasidejewishcommunity.com. Click on Giving / Sponsor Oneg.

SJC s management is through our volunteer Board of Directors. While no policy decisions will be made at the annual meeting, the Board hopes to get feedback from you on the things SJC does. The meeting gives you a chance to hear about committee work and, we hope, become involved as a member of a committee that seems most attractive to you. If there any items that you may want brought before the membership at the annual meeting, please them to the co-presidents by October 20. Their addresses are shown at left. HHD Youth Services/ Activities Activities and services for young people on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mornings begin at 10 a.m. Two programs are available. One is a service for those who are old enough to participate (usually 9 and older), and the other is an activity program with stories and arts and crafts for our younger folks. An adult family member must accompany children under 5. All the young people will come into the sanctuary and sit as a group for the taking out and reading of the Torah. After the Torah is read, they will join their families in the sanctuary for the remainder of the service. Snacks will be provided for the children on Rosh Hashanah, but for the Yom Kippur program, parents will need to provide their children s snacks. Note that this is a change since last month s newsletter. The Youth Education Committee is in search of a few volunteers to help with both programs. For more information and to volunteer, please contact Marjorie Kobrin at or Holiday Course for Preschoolers & Parents It s not too late to register for SJC s holiday course for 3- and 4-yearolds and their parents. The first class was September 25, but there are five more to go! The classes will cover each major holiday through story, music, and crafts. The cost of the series is $75 per family for members and $90 for non-members. Bring your check to the first class. The dates of the remaining classes are October 16, December 18, January 29, March 5, April 2, and May 7 10 from 10:00 to 10:45 at SJC. The class will be led by Youth Education Committee Chair Marjorie Kobrin. If you are interested (and please invite your child s friends), contact Marjorie at Simchat Torah & Religious School Consecration Oct 23 continued from page 2 consecration where we welcome our new students. The consecration ceremony officially recognizes the beginning of their formal Jewish education. They will be presented with certificates and the students will share the wimples their parents created to honor the occasion. A wimple is an ornate, embroidered or painted cloth used to bind up the Torah scroll after it has been read. A pot luck dairy lunch will follow. If you plan to attend, please bring a dairy/pareve dish to share. Friendly Reminder Children should always be supervised at SJC. If you bring a child to an event they should be with you or another adult at all times.

4 Page 4 Seaside Jewish Community October 2016 Adult Education Programs Meetings are at SJC at 7:30 p.m. All are invited. First Thursday: Jewish History & More! On October 6, we ll continue our Jewish History program by viewing a DVD and discussing the Diaspora about the lives of Jews in places outside of Israel. The dispersion began with the Babylonia exile and continues now and into the future. Esther and Daniel, representing Jews of the post-exile Biblical times, find themselves in foreign courts not of their own volition, but on arriving, they make the best of their circumstances. Then, on November 3, we will view the last DVD of the series on Jewish History and the Bible. The DVD covers the Bible s apocalyptic literature. This is the literature that raises universal questions about the time of creation and the end of time. Come and learn! Also, an exciting and new kind of Jewish History program for 2017 will be announced soon. Second Thursday: A Taste of Mussar Each month, we study one virtue or character trait (middah) that is part of Mussar, the ethical and cultural component and discipline of Judaism. On October 13, we ll review our practice of the middah of Order and begin studying the next Middah, Equanimity. This month we are paying attention to our own experiences with Order too much, too little? Are we disorderly and if so, what are the impacts on others as a result of our disorder? Are we hyper-organized and if so, what is the impact on others? Then on November 10, we ll review our practice of the middah of Equanimity and begin studying the next Middah, Honor. Please let Rabbi Beth know if you ll be joining the group for the first time, so she can send you a packet of introductory information before your first session. Third Thursday: Potpourri On October 20, SJC member, Jeff Fried, President and CEO of Beebe Healthcare, will give us his annual update on matters pertaining to the health and well-being of members of our community. He will outline the plans Beebe is making to serve the health care needs of a growing and aging community, and he will discuss some of the changes that will be brought about to improve the way health care is delivered in our community. Changes mandated by the Affordable Care Act, payment reform, and Beebe s involvement with other health systems will complete the evening s discussion. Join us for these informative and lively discussions. There will not be a session on November 17. Rather, we are having a special event on November 20. See separate article on page 5. Fourth Thursday: Pirkei Avot On October 27, we continue our discussion of Chapter 6, the last chapter, of Pirkei Avot. The first five chapters deal with the proper model of moral and ethical character development. Chapter 6 speaks to the beauty of the Torah itself, and its elevating inspiring effect on those who study it for its own sake. For those who have had only a smattering of Torah study, and even for those who have had more extensive study, this chapter may lead us into areas we probably never even considered. And because of our free-flowing method of discussion, we will have an interesting sharing of ideas. If you have any questions about Pirkei Avot, please contact Burt Brenman at or There will not be a class on November 24, as it is Thanksgiving. Book Review The Adult Education Committee recommends the book Not in God s Name by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, published by Hodder & Stoughton Ltd. In confronting religious violence, Rabbi Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of Great Britain, addresses the problems in misreading of Biblical texts to promote justification for such acts altruistic, evil, committed in a sacred cause, politicized religious extremism, dualism separating peoples into those of light and those darkness. Best read slowly, with a Bible by one s side, Sacks gives a new reading to our Biblical texts. This book is available through the Delaware Library System. Questions and comments may be addressed to Miriam Zadek at comcast.net. Wednesday Mornings at Seaside Every Wednesday morning from 9 to 10:30, you will find the SJC doors open for anyone interested in a contemplative, spiritual, peace-filled start to their day. Meditation, chant, and prayer are included. Everyone, including folks wanting to learn the practice of meditation, are welcome. Yahrzeit Plaques Honor your departed loved one by having a plaque mounted on the wall in the sanctuary. It takes 3 months to receive them. SJC Cemetery Reserve Your Plot(s) today.
