Temple Israel to offer High Holy Day workshops, Sept. 17

Free and open to the community, workshops include four interactive sessions, from text study and shofar-blowing to a holiday cooking demo

HHD Workshop image Athletes warm up before a game, musicians tune their instruments before a concert, and actors rehearse before the big show. Now is the time for you to prepare for the High Holy Days, as Temple Israel of Greater Miami offers Wednesday, Sept. 17 a variety of interactive High Holy Day Workshops to get you ready.

The evening begins at 7 p.m. when the temple's spiritual leader Rabbi Tom Heyn provides a brief overview of the High Holy Days and some of their general themes. From there, participants have a choice of four interactive workshops, after which everyone will meet together for light refreshments and socializing.

Participants can choose from one (or, depending on time, two) of the following offerings:

Texts, Traditions and Personal Transformation: Rabbi Heyn guides this text study session, using Rabbi Alan Lew's memorably-titled book, This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared, which takes readers through a journey of personal transformation, beginning with Tisha B’Av, the darkest day on the Jewish calendar when countless tragedies befell the Jewish people, through to the joyous holiday of Simchat Torah when we celebrate the completion of the annual Torah-reading cycle. To properly do teshuvah (repentance) and start over with a clean slate in the New Year, Lew says we must start early on a period of self-reflection. Discover how this spiritually-charged period can be your personal journey of transformation to get the most out of the upcoming holidays. Held in Kaplan Hall.

Have a Blast at Shofar-Blowing Class: Have you always wanted to learn how to blow shofar? Veteran shofar blower Dr. Michael Graubert and Temple Israel director of music Dr. Alan Mason will show you how it's done, as they explain the meaning and skills involved to turn you into a master blaster. If you have a shofar, please bring it! Held in the Sophie and Nathan Gumenick Chapel.

Rosh Hashanah Cooking Demo: Foodies, rejoice! Our culinary maven Doris Galindo, who's led several popular holiday-themed cooking classes, will show you how to make traditional Rosh Hashanah favorites as well as innovative new ones to usher in the New Year. Sweet! Wear comfortable clothes (bring an apron, if possible) and come ready to mix, chop...and of course, taste! Held in the Temple Israel Kitchen.

Talmud Teachings for the High Holy Days: Whether you're a first timer or a regular at Temple Israel's weekly Talmud class, led by Ruth Marks and Atle Vere, please join us for this session that will delve into and discuss the laws of Rosh Hashanah, including the religious services and shofar. Held in the Library Lounge.

Following the workshops, participants will reconvene for light refreshments and socializing.

The evening is free of charge and open to all community members. Advance registration requested to the Temple Israel office - at or 305.573.5900 - so we can plan accordingly. Temple Israel flyer

The service will be led by Rabbi Tom Heyn with music by guest cantorial soloist Yael Dadoun, accompanied on piano by director of music Alan Mason.

The next day on Sept. 6th at both the 9:30 a.m. Shabbat morning service and 11 a.m. Joseph’s Table Torah study program led by Rabbi Heyn, participants will practice innovative approaches to prayer and study that are effective in maximizing spiritual health and wellness.

Culminating the weekend will be a community Spiritual Health & Wellness program Sept. 7 at 10:30 a.m. when Prilleltensky explores the psychological components of well-being, which include spirituality and the pursuit of meaning. His presentation will be followed by refreshments, after which those who are interested in staying are welcome to participate in a brainstorming session to develop and draft an implementation plan for a spiritual health and wellness series this year at the temple.

Please join us for any one or all of these programs, which are open to both Temple Israel and community members. There is a suggested donation of $10 for Sunday's event; free for Temple Israel members. No RSVP is required.

Volunteers needed Sunday, August 24 at the Kosher Food Bank

This Sunday we will be emptying the shelves at the JCS Kosher Food Bank in preparation for a little “face lift.”

Contractor will be cleaning, sanding and painting the warehouse floors as the paint has peeled and when wet, the floor becomes too slippery for visiting seniors. Some of the racks are more than 12 years old and starting to buckle, so we will be replacing those as well.

We need volunteers to organize and move the food and other items. Community Service hours are available for teens!

If you would like to help and volunteer, please contact Jewish Community Services of South Florida at 305.947.8093.

Welcoming Our Students Home

The first day of school is always an exciting, special day here at Scheck Hillel Community School, as we welcome over 1,000 students and more than 200 faculty members back home after summer vacation. From the moment you entered our campus yesterday, the excitement in the air was palpable. Students and parents were greeted by faculty members energetically waving Israeli flags, singing songs and showing off their LION PRIDE. Our new Lion mascot made his debut appearance, snapping photos with students and guiding all to their classrooms.

As everyone heartwarmingly hugged friends they've missed over the past few months and welcomed classmates new to Scheck Hillel, it was evident that our community takes care of its young - just as a true pride of lions does. The ruach and warm community feeling continued throughout the day with classroom learning and educational activities. If yesterday was any indication of the year to come, we can undoubtedly say that 2014-15 is sure to be incredible!

For a peek into our day, please visit our Smug Mug album and check out our video.
