RABBI GREG'S CORNER
Turn Up the Light, Tone Down the Heat
As the autumn colors fade from the trees and the darkness of winter looms just around the corner, there seems to be a lot more heat than light in the world these days.  Just when we are in desperate need of the light of understanding and compassion, the temperature continues to rise in the tone and tenor of how we talk about and with one another.

In the wake of the elections, conversations are filled with concern and worry about the direction of our country.  And rightly so.  However, the polarization and vitriol that has been such a part of the recent presidential election that has divided our nation, communities and even families, threatens to continue to tear us apart rather than bring us together.  While clearly there continue to be fundamental and very deep differences of opinions among those across our country and here at home, we must always remember that we are all human beings deserving of respect, and we should never dehumanize those who disagree with us as “other.”  This is especially true in our own congregation where all should feel safe and at home. 

We need only look to Israel to see the recent destructive impact of a hatred burning out of control.  Just last week, there was a horrible graffiti attack on one of our reform synagogues in Ra’anana.  Even worse, death threats by Jewish extremists were made at the same time against Rabbi Gilad Kariv, the executive director of the Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism; Rabbi Rick Jacobs, the president of the Union for Reform Judaism here in the U.S. and Anat Hoffman, head of the Women of the Wall activist group (you can read an article about this incident by clicking here).

If that is not enough, the worst wild fires in Israel’s history have been ravaging the north of the country.  Since last Tuesday, 110 different fires have been identified and tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed.  In Haifa, the largest city affected, more than 1,000 homes were

destroyed and more than 60,000 people were displaced.  While only a small percentage of these fires may actually have been set purposefully as an act of terror, these flames rage as a powerful metaphoric reminder of the destructive power of hatred to consume everything in its path. 

And yet each crisis carries the seeds of redemption. So many around the globe have stepped up to aid Israel in fighting this natural disaster.  Jordan, Greece, Turkey, the Palestinian Authority and the United States have all sent firefighting support to put out the fires and prevent them from spreading further across the region.  If you would like to be a part of the support efforts, you can click here to add your light and fight the fire with a donation to ARZA (American Reform Zionist Association)

Just as in Israel people have come together to work towards our shared humanity, so, too, can all of us be a shining source of light and inspiration.  Dr. Moti Zeira, the director of the Educational Center for Israeli Judaism, wrote these uplifting words:  “These are troubling and disheartening times in the world, and I know that sometimes it feels as if the forces of hatred, intolerance and violence threaten to overcome our rational and civil societies.  Yet before we despair, I suggest we draw inspiration from the Israeli novelist Haim Hazaz: ‘There is no darkness that can extinguish a candle, but one candle illuminates all darkness.’  We must illuminate the darkness and amplify the light within us and the world.” 

As Hanukkah approaches, let us all consider what we can do to fight the darkness in our world by deciding to be that source of light that will be a beacon of hope, shining the way to a brighter future.

Blessings,

Giving Tuesday Campaign at Bet Haverim
Nearly $1,000 Already Donated by CBH Partners Toward the $5,400 Goal

While hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised worldwide during past Giving Tuesday campaigns, Bet Haverim has set a rather modest goal of $5,400 to benefit synagogue operations for our first-ever Giving Tuesday effort, which began two days ago and continues through Saturday, December 24, the first night of Hanukkah.  

Please help to make this a true season of light for our Jewish community!  Click here to donate via PayPal, Visa or MasterCard , and select from the following gift options, each representing an offset of operational expenses at CBH during 2016-2017:

  • $36 buys supplies for a Haverim K'tanim/Young Families activity
  • $72 buys challah for Shabbat and Sunday School for two weeks
  • $108 keeps the lights on in the Social Hall for a month
  • $360 sends a child to Religious School or Hebrew School who otherwise cannot afford to enroll
  • $540 brings a special speaker or musician for an evening or weekend
  • $720 provides security personnel for the High Holy Days
  • A gift to your community of any amount!

Make your gift extra meaningful by contributing in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Should you prefer to donate via check, please deliver your donation to the CBH office before December 24, and include "Giving Tuesday" in the memo.

Questions about the campaign?  Please contact
Joy Cohan, Communications Specialist, by clicking her name, or phoning 530-383-1814.

The Future of the Bet Haverim Community Is In Your Hands...Join Your Haverim Who Are Already
Assuring Jewish Tomorrows
Make a Legacy Commitment This Fall or Winter and help CBH to Earn a $2,500 Grant
 
This Fall, one CBH legacy donor, or pair of donors, will be profiled each week.  The concept of CBH as family motivates Joy and Steve Cohan, this week's featured partners.  CBH partners for 20 years, Joy and Steve have educated three sons in the Religious School who have participated in both Gan Haverim and the Keshet and Confirmation teen programs, as well.  They have each served the synagogue as Board officers, with Steve currently presiding as co-president.  In addition, Joy has been involved in multiple CBH fundraising efforts, led the Tree of Life 50th Anniversary Celebration and is now employed by CBH as the Communications Specialist.
 
“To leave a legacy to Bet Haverim is an expression of the deep commitment and love we have for this community.  It is a part of our family, so we want to provide for it similarly when we pass on.  The founding generation invested both time and treasure to create what we enjoy today; it is our generation's turn to deepen and continue that investment.”
 
See a full list of the more than 50 CBH Legacy Donors by clicking here.  To create your Jewish legacy, contact Michael Bobell, CBH Life and Legacy Coordinator, by clicking his name, or by phoning 530-400-7031.  The commitment deadline to assist with CBH's incentive grant eligibility is Tuesday, February 28, 2017.

Gan Haverim Preschool News
by Rhoda Rohnstock, Director

In November, the children had an opportunity to taste pomegranates, thanks to one of our dads who brought in several varieties and helped the children extract the seeds to sample them.

We also had an eagerly-anticipated visit from a local firefighter crew.  They showed the children the gear they wear in a fire, as well as the supplies that they keep on the fire engine.

In December, the preschoolers will be getting ready for Hanukkah by making their own hanukkiahs to take home, as well as some tasty  holiday treats.

We always welcome visitors, so please stop in anytime.  We offer a play-based curriculum with a warm nurturing environment.  For more information about the school and enrollment, please contact me at 530-758-0842, ext. 105, or at

Israel Peace Alternatives Presents:  "Gett:  The Trial of Vivian Amsalem" Film Screening and Discussion with May Pundak of the New Israel Fund
2:00 - 5:00 p.m., Social Hall
 
In Israel, rites of passage—including conversion, marriage, and divorce—are the sole domain of the Orthodox Rabbinate. To divorce, part of that process involves a gett (the document that releases a wife from marriage).  In order to obtain a gett and finalize a divorce, some Jewish women have been compelled to give up parental rights or pay large sums of money.

Join IPA for the only Sacramento-area screening of this celebrated film, which tells the story of one woman’s pursuit of a gett, followed by a presentation and conversation with the New Israel Fund’s May Pundak, an Israeli civil rights attorney and activist. 

Pundak will offer insights into the state of marriage and divorce in Israel, as well as a new campaign by NIF’s New Generations (young adult group) calling on Israel to enact legislation guaranteeing marriage equality in Israel.

To learn
about the screening at CBH, the film and related topics, please click here.   CBH Partner Sarah Pattison also can assist by clicking her name, or phoning 530-220-5042.  The screening is free of charge and open to the public.
