name: A-F = dessert; G-K = salad; L-Q = vegetable; R-Z = starch.
Please bring enough to feed 10 hungry people. No pork or shellfish, please!
It’s quick, easy and available 24/7, and you can even pay for the event at the same time you

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
We’ll take it from there!

I wanted to take a moment simply to
say thank you. Thank you to all who
helped to make the holidays so
meaningful this year. 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.

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.

November is upon us. In just a couple weeks, 100 or so
Jewish teens from the region will come to Dayton for the
North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY) Ohio
Valley Regional.
A big thank you to our congregants who have stepped up to
the plate to open their homes to these teens.
They will arrive Friday November 14 and will lead our
Shabbat services that night. NFTY will also be leading a
special Torah study session the morning of November
15 (there will still be the regular rabbi-led Torah study in the
library) and Shabbat morning services.
If you see any of the teens in the building, please say hi and
welcome them to Dayton. It's the first time Temple Israel
will host the entire region for a convention.

Mitzvah Meals Make Difficult Times Easier
Tikkun Olam — repair of the world. Tzedakah — righteousness or charity.
These are two of Judaism’s guiding principles, and they’re the force behind
Mitzvah Meals, an initiative of Temple’s Social Action Committee designed to
lend a helping hand to those in our congregation who need it most.
“Volunteers have prepared and frozen healthy and delicious Mitzvah Meals, and
they’ll be delivered upon request to congregants who might need extra help
getting a hot meal on the table because of illness, a death in the family or the
disruption of bringing a newborn home,” says Linda Albert, Social Action
committee Co-chair.
If someone you know would benefit from a Mitzvah Meal, please contact Rabbi
Sofian or Rabbi Bodney-Halasz.
We Want To Hear
From You — Call Or
Send An E-Mail!
Rabbi Sofian and Rabbi Bodney-Halasz
want to reach out to congregants in
times of need and joy. Please call the
Temple office when a friend or loved
one is ill, hospitalized, in a nursing
home, assisted living facility or shut in.
Share the happy news, too—we might
not know about a marriage, birth or
other simcha unless you tell us!
