Dear Friends,
In mid-October we learned of an anti-Semitic incident at Congregation Etz Chaim in Lombard. Swastikas were painted,
windows were broken. Thankfully, the perpetrator was arrested.
Days later EHNTJC co-sponsored with the Decalogue Society of Lawyers, a program called “Hate Crimes: Criminal and Civil
Remedies, and the Effects on Targeted Communities”.
Many thanks to Joel Chupack, vice-chair of our Adult Education Committee and president of the Decalogue Society, for
organizing this excellent and well-attended program. We also owe a debt of gratitude to Senator Howard Carroll, our
current legal counsel, for his leadership role in drafting and introducing the Illinois Hate Crimes Statute, one of the
strongest in the nation.
Some have challenged the very notion of hate crimes, suggesting that the ideological intent is irrelevant to how violent
crimes are prosecuted. But hate crimes statutes, on federal, state, and local levels, are important and necessary. Besides the
increased punishments they incur on the convicted, they proclaim that our society stands on a foundation of acceptance and
inclusion, not of hatred. America welcomes differences; it does not reject them.
I was recently speaking with an immigrant from Eastern Europe who wants to return to her native land. She told me that
she misses her country, where everyone is “the same.” There are too many different kinds of people here, she said.
She has been in America for 20 years and has not absorbed its most important message. Our diversity is our strength. Most
of us -- the vast majority, I am sure -- understand this.
Hate crimes still occur. The targets are manifold: African Americans, Jews, Muslims, women, homosexuals, transgendered
people, and more.
We have an obligation not merely to teach tolerance, but to speak out against the hate crimes when they occur. The police
chief in Lombard made a powerful statement against hate crimes in his community. I was also very gratified that German
Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke out forcefully against the anti-Semitism that has proliferated in Europe. Her words against
Jew-hatred are extremely important.
On Sunday, November 9, we will commemorate Kristallnacht, the infamous Night of Broken Glass -- a watershed moment of
state-sponsored anti-Semitism in Germany, 1938. Our religious school students will participate in the program, reading
poetry written by children, victims of the Holocaust.
By involving our children, we are inculcating in them the importance of remembering that tragic moment in Jewish – and
human – history. We are also teaching them the cherished American value, that out of our great diversity, we are one
nation.
L’Shalom,
Rabbi Jeffrey Weill

Gurevitz, Lee Levin, Larry Schoeneman, and Jeff

Ways & Means Committee Chair, Judy Frank
This has been an extremely busy time for the Ways &
Means Committee. Thank you to everyone who
supported all our fundraising projects these last few
months.
In September, 45 of us went to the Skokie Theatre to
see Sweet Charity which was under the musical
direction of our friend, Gary Powell. Also in September,
we sent out approximately 500 boxes of honey to wish
our family and friends L’Shana Tova in a very sweet way.
We want to thank each and every one of you who
supported this project. Without you, it certainly would
not have been such a huge success. A very special thank
you to Marsha Brody and the entire Ways & Means
Committee for all their help and support on the honey
project.
Our biggest fundraiser was our Tribute Ad Book in
honor of Rabbi Neil & Erica z”l Brief. The support for
this Tribute Book was absolutely tremendous. It will be
distributed at our Shabbat Dinner on December 12th.
The brunch scheduled in their honor was to be attended
by over 175 people. With the untimely death of Erica, the
money was used to honor Erica’s memory in a gold page
in the Tribute Book and food for the Shiva.
Once again, thanks so much for all your support!

In Loving Memory
If you wish to honor the memory of a dear one,
a most fitting, traditional and dignified remembrance
is through a memorial plaque.
Each memorial plaque, bearing the name and
yahrzeit date, is mounted in the Memorial Alcove in
our chapel. On the day of the yahrzeit, your loved
one’s name is listed on a tablet in the chapel alcove.
For more information or to order a plaque,
contact Bill Gerber in the synagogue office.
