Dr. Fred Krome Dr. David Barr Temple Israel Dr. Mark Verman 130 Riverside Drive Dayton, OH 45405 937-496-0050 www.tidayton.org 2 A Message From… Rabbi David M. Sofian With the completion of Simchat Torah we find our weekly Torah readings bringing us back to the book of Genesis. This book is filled with stories that are beloved by every generation of Jews. Hearing the creation story stimulates our wonder at the natural universe. The events of the Garden of Eden make us think about our own natures. The episodes of Noah and the Tower of Babel cause us to ponder our behavior and its consequences. And the patriarchal accounts teach so much about our Jewish identities by reminding us of our origins. Jews have always found sustenance and meaning in this narrative heritage. I mention this because I wonder if we all still have these stories at our fingertips. I wonder if each of us is well-versed enough in this basic level of our heritage. Can we still draw upon these stories as the generations before us could? As we face inevitable human problems, do we instantly relate them to the problems our Matriarchs and Patriarchs faced? For many of us the answer will be yes, but honesty demands that we recognize that for many of us the answer will be no. As I talk to people, I find that in spite of basic familiarity, many are not so sure about the details of these fundamental stories. For many, their Jewish identity is weakened because they lack confidence in their knowledge. Sometimes I am asked where someone should begin if wanting to become more knowledgeable Jewishly. Or I am asked how to strengthen Jewish identity for oneself or for one's family. My answer is to begin with these stories. To a large extent, Jewishness is a matter of one's associations, both to other Jews and to the content of our heritage. The deeper and more frequent the associations, the more knowledgeable and confident we are and the more meaningful our Judaism becomes. The stories of Genesis, and for that matter the rest of the Torah, are the foundation for everything else in Judaism. They are the beginning. Every Jew should know them the same way we know our address or phone number. They should be part and parcel of who each of us is. Now is our opportunity since the cycle of Torah readings is teaching Genesis at this time of year. Come Shabbat mornings and study them in the Torah study class. Come to Shabbat morning services and hear them in the Torah reading. Learn them and let them become woven into the fabric of your life. Your Jewish identity will be strengthened. You will be enriched. Be An Ambassador For Temple Israel If you know of an individual, a couple or a family who would enjoy all that Temple Israel has to offer, please encourage them to contact Temple for information or send us an e-mail at membership @tidayton.org.

Each one of you played an important part in making the High Holidays truly part of a "season of rejoicing." Thank you especially to: those who ascended to the bimah for an honor, Torah and Haftarah readers, Shofar blowers, ushers, musicians, prayerbook distributors, greeters, office staff, hosts of Sukkahs in the City, Torah cover changers, organizers for Mr. Bush's celebration, kitchen helpers (especially Simone Sofian!), participants in our visioning activity, maintenance staff, each of you who welcomed someone you did not recognize, and so many other important volunteers, especially those involved in the religious school and the worship and music committees. Without you Temple Israel would not be the warm and welcoming place that it is to so many. Mark Your Calendar! 4th-6th Grade Retreat at GUCI November 7-9 With our friends from Valley Temple in Cincinnati Dr. Nathan’s 4/5 grade class will NOT have Sunday school. November 9 No Religious School November 30 Emergency Preparedness Training Judaism values Pikuach Nefesh, saving a life, in the highest regard. It teaches us that we are obligated to do everything in our power to actively save a life, even if it is at the cost of not keeping certain other mitzvot. On October 5, religious school teachers and madrichim took this to heart as they underwent training for CPR, automatic external defibrillator (AED) use, the Heimlich maneuver, and First Aid. The Religious School Committee prioritized training this year to ensure that, if necessary, our staff would be equipped with the best life-saving practices available. Thank you to Dr. Annette Nathan for preparing these sessions. Thank you again to Dr. Frank and Renee Handel for their generous gift of Temple’s AED. From The Rabbi/Religious School Pictured below left to right, Abby Dickstein, Gabby Frost, Merrie Mollenhauer and Jennifer Mollenhauer, practice the Heimlich maneuver; Adam Green, Ben Pierce and Sara Pierce practice chest compressions during CPR training and Dr. Annette Nathan shows how to dislodge something from Mark Gilbert, a choking victim.
