With great thanks to Hashem, this month also will be my formal installation as our synagogue’s Rabbi. The past two decades have been a wonderful time for our family. It has been a privilege to share in the lives and life events of our members, You, my synagogue family, have been there for me as well, in good times as well as in bad. Now the time has come for a new era to begin for me and for the shul. I will be following in the footsteps of Rabbi Nehemiah Katz, ZT”L, Rabbi Edward Garsek, and Rabbi Jonathan Bienenfeld, who have served Congregation Etz Chayim, as well as Rabbi Isaac Shapiro, Rabbi Isaac Silberman, both of blessed memory, and others who served our community prior to the merger. The challenge before me is daunting. My predecessors have left large shoes to fill. I am fortunate to have worked alongside Rabbi Garsek and Rabbi Bienenfeld, and they have taught me well. Now, I have the responsibility of continuing their rich legacy. With Hashem’s help and guidance, I am ready to meet this awesome task. I look forward to working with our membership and the community’s leadership to continue to advance Congregation Etz Chayim through the 21st century. May we merit to see the continued blossoming of our wonderful “Tree of Life.” Rabbi Evan B. Rubin FROM THE PRESIDENT As I turn over the reins of the Presidency to Dan Becker, I again wish to convey to the Congregation how honored I was to have been asked to take over as President when David Beckman moved out of our community. Much has been accomplished by the current Board of Trustees over this past year. I have no doubt that the incoming Board of Trustees and Officers will do an outstanding job and will continue to look out for the best interests of Etz Chayim. The Congregation still has numerous issues to deal with on both a short-term and long-term basis. Pursuing an out-reach Rabbi, handling any capital improvements such as the roof and the mikvah, investigating the creation of an Eruv as well as continuing to tackle our financial needs are just a few of the matters to be dealt with by the new Board. We will be celebrating our Congregation’s 40th anniversary in a week. I look forward to seeing all of you, including Rabbi Garsek, as we reflect on the past and look forward to our future years together. Steve Marcus, President OHR CHADASH RELIGIOUS SCHOOL WHY? Over the past month we have celebrated several holidays. Coming to services and seeing our Ohr Chadash students attending and participating is a warm feeling. Your children watched attentively, as Rabbi Rubin was blowing the shofar during Rosh Hashanah. The students who were fasting understand "why" and can explain. The Tashlich ceremony at Olander was beautiful, well attended, and meaningful. Why are the verses recited next to a body of water? Rabbi Rubin led and explained the ceremony. All the students made wonderful decorations for our Sukkah. Simchat Torah offered lively dancing and celebrating for many of us. Each Sunday when I visit our classrooms, I enjoy observing the activities. Having the students (your children ) involved is "why" you as parents, send your children to Ohr Chadash. Jewish Education is so important. Whether your child attends class once or three times each week, you have made a commitment. Your support is an essential and fundamental key towards the successful continuation of our program. November offers another busy month for our teachers and students. The annual community Book Fair is November 9th. The students in grades six, seven and eight will be joining the students from Temple Shomer and B’nai Israel for a trip to the Holocaust Center on November 16th. This trip is a culmination to their eight week Holocaust unit study. The students will continue to be busy during the remainder of the month planning for a special Chanukah program on December 18th. Plan to attend a Shabbat services with your family.

When he inherited a collection of 264 tiny Japanese wood and ivory carvings, called netsuke, he wanted to know who had touched and held them, and how the collection had managed to survive. And so begins this extraordinarily moving memoir and detective story as de Waal discovers both the story of his wealthy ancestors and their netsuke, which having been hidden from the Nazis in Vienna, was all that remained of their vast empire. $5 for the tour (at the door) Lunch from the Café (approx. $10). Vegetarian options available Members park free. $5/car for non-members (Carpools will meet at Etz Chayim at 10:15) The group will meet in the Grove Street lobby of the Art Museum at 10:45 AM Reservations are limited to the first 40 people For Reservations contact Elsa Leveton (419) 473-2401 or [email protected] by Dec. 1.
