As I write this images of Hurricane Katrina are fresh in my mind. Horrible images of stranded victims, thousands of displaced people looking for hope-a morsel of food, water-the basic necessities of life. Hundreds, perhaps thousands are reported to have died, and hundreds of thousands more have lost their homes as an entire city has disappeared. Our tradition reminds us of the tenuous nature of life as the words of the Unetaneh Tokef found in our High Holyday machzor come to haunt us especially this year, "On Rosh Hashanah it is written and on Yom Kippur it is sealed, who shall live and who shall die; who by plague and who by flood. "And the prayer ends, "but repentance, prayer and charity temper j'udgment's severe decree." How are we to understand this prayer in light of this past year's horrific events? Tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and floods? I do not think that the tradition means to imply that these acts of nature are anything more than acts of nature. They are not punishments by God nor are they God's way of sending us a message that human beings are immoral. To put such a value judgment only serves to blame the victim and distances us from God. We must ask ourselves, "Why would a loving God destroy the lives of millions, including innocent babies and children to send a message about human behavior?" Surely there would be a simpler way to communicate. Yet, over and over again we hear such pronouncements by fundamentalists who find such tragedies as openings to speak out about such things. Yet, human beings are not blameless in their ability to diminish human tragedy. Our ability to predict catastrophes often goes ignored by populations in denial. Our ability to respond to disasters is often too slow. And our desires to live in areas that are prone to natural disasters make us vulnerable to hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes and tsunamis that frequent these regions. We know the risks but we choose tci live there anyway. Part of it is because we live in denial. And part is because we feel that human ingenuity will find a way to over come Mother Nature. The Unetaneh Tokef prayer is a reminder that repentance, prayer and tzedakah may temper such tragedies. Repentance-a community introspection on what we have done right, and what we have done wrong in responding to such calamities is in order. Not to point fingers or assess blame, but to learn so that when the next time comes - and there will be a next time - we can do better. Prayer is an act that reminds us of our humanity. Tragedy knows no race or religion. In the darkness of mortal danger it is God's light that shines through in the acts of people who risk their lives so that others might live. And finally, tzedakah-giving financially because it is the right thing to do- is also something that each of us can do to ease human suffering at times like these. There are charities such as the Red Cross or Salvation Army along with responses set up by the reform movement ( and our own local Jewish Federation. Every one of us should give to an organization of our choice. The New Year ahead presents us with many challenges. We who have so much must now reach out to those who have lost so much. We are reminded of our own mortality and our worlds are shaken. But we are also embolden by the knowledge that what has been destroyed will be rebuilt, and even lives that have been shattered will find hope again.

It?s hard to believe how fast summer went by. High Holiday Choir rehearsals began in July and everyone is working diligently to be prepared for the Holy days. I?m sure as you read this; you?ve no doubt enjoyed the Rosh Hashanah service and the wonderful sound of the Adult Choir. I want to thank the Adult Choir, our accompanist Lillian Kollar and Choir Director John Smith, for all their hard work. I look forward to next year and some new musical selections that I have planned. If you are interested in joining the choir for future services, please let me know (You know it?s a mitzvah to sing in choir at CNT and it?s fun too!). Also I want to thank the Teen Choir and Lori Frankl for all their hard work at the Family Service, and Brad Torchin for his musical talents. Also by now, you have no doubt heard the Shabbatones. Their new season began Sept.9th with the debut of the new Shabbatone CD. What a great group and I am privileged to be singing all the wonderful music. I sound so much better because of their musical talents and I appreciate them all for their time, efforts and energy to make the Shabbatones what it is today. I hope you enjoy the new CD. Thank you all for your wonderful talents and I look forward to a splendid new year of music here at Congregation NerTamid. I wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year!

O ctober 2005 5 Your Executive D irector What a Month! I HAD FUN this past month. It began with ourfirst Shabbatone Family Musical Shabbat Service of the season and we had over 500 people attend to enjoy our services. We also handed out the brand new Shabbatone CD that they had recorded this summer, and it's great! Following this great experience, 32 hours later, was our first day of our Religious School fortheyear! Between Philip with his wonderful music to a full parking lot, to Ayelet and Lynette's total coordination of the entire Sunday's activities; it was terrific! The energy, the kids, the parents, all of our staff and congregants at both events were unsurpassed (first timers and veteran Sunday school parents alike). Our teachers were also energized, and very importantly, Ayelet introducing our "Dream Team of Hebrew and Religious School Teachers" all made for a terrific experience. What a kickoff for the brand-new season! One of my biggest pleasures is greeting, both on Friday nights and Sunday mornings. So who, exactly, made me the official temple "high-fiver? on Sunday mornings? No one, that's who. I really enjoy greeting in our lobby, giving high-fives to our kids, and handshakes and eye contact with our parents and congregants. To once again see and connect with "who we are doing this for?, our children, when the answer comes in about 200 shapes and forms we call our students and children, is truly incredible. So, it's really my pleasure (and self-appointed duty) to greet everyone on Fridays and Sundays - the connections that I experience are truly wonderful, and with people (congregants and non-congregants alike) who are really, really nice people who come together for a common purpose. You bet I greet with smiles on Fridays and Sundays- it's fun! So, let me take this opportunity to wish each and every person who walks into our facility "A Happy and A Healthy New Year", and I look forward to greeting you when you arrive, not only in our current facility, but in the facility, on the campus, that we have broken ground on. to be continued.... Irv Raise Your Voice About Judicial Nominations This July, President Bush nominatedjudge John G. Roberts Jr. to the Supreme Court - touching off one of the most significant processes in our democracy. The importance of a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court cannot be overstated, and the Reform Movement is committed to making sure that all Supreme Court nominees are committed to a judicial philosophy and Constitutional understanding that protects our rights and liberties. T o help you think about the issue of judicial nominations, the Religious Action Center has created a resource page that features background information on what?s at stake, Jewish values, ways to get involved, andmore. Log on to and find out the key facts that you need to know. The RAC has also launched the ?Ask Judge Roberts? campaign. A web-based question bank, this program gives you an opportunity to suggest questions that Senate Judiciary Committee members may askjudge Roberts during his confirmation hearings. The RAC will share your questions with senators, highlighting the importance of 3^^ comprehensive and thorough examination of the Judge?s record and views.

Because both things are happening together, the trip has taken on special meaning for me. When I was a teen I had an opportunity to go to Israel and did not take it and have regretted it ever since. My experiences at CNT and this trip will lead me to further involvement in Judaism. As the holidays approach, I usually reflect upon my Judaism a little more than usual. As my involvement with CNT has grown over the years, so has my desire to stay in touch with my Judaism daily. I do that in several ways; I read the URJ's daily e-mail "10-minutes of Torah" - it always gives me just a few minutes to reflect on my religion and it's teachings as I start my day; we keep Shabbat in our home; we attend temple regularly; we give tzedakah. However, I have always wanted to see for myself the place where it all started. So when the Rabbi asked me if I thought we were ready for a congregational trip to Israel I said, "LETS GO". The trip will be fantastic, leaving Sunday, June 11,2006 and returning Tuesday, June 20. The trip includes all airfare, hotels, deluxe tours, several meals, taxes and transfers for a very reasonable price. The itinerary is too much to repeat here but you can find a flyer in this bulletin with a complete description of the trip. We are going to have time to wander on our own, to swim in the Dead Sea, to see the western wall. Best of all we can experience it together with people we know and love. I just knew the Rabbi would put together a great program. Call the tour company and reserve your space because it is selling fast. This will be a trip all of us will be talking about for years to come. So again, as the High Holy Days approach I want to invite you to join Sandy, Megan, Ben and I as we expand our learning about our Judaism. Look at your calendar, block out the dates, contact the tour operator and book yourself the trip of a lifetime. Even if you have been to Israel before, come and experience it again with your temple family. As my term as president ends I will enter a new term of learning and living jewishly. This trip will be the beginning. May you and your family have a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
