FROM
THE RABBI’S DESK
By Rabbi Alan B. Lucas
T
Why I am going to the AIPAC Policy Conference
and why I hope you will join me.
he AIPAC Policy Conference will be held at
the Washington Convention Center in Washington
DC from Sunday March 20 through Tuesday March 22. It
is the largest gathering of America’s pro-Israel community.
If you have been there before – I have no doubt you
have already made plans to go again. If you have not yet
attended one of these conferences I hope you will give
serious thought to doing so.
Why is the AIPAC Policy Conference so important? Well
first of all, it is a happening. Can you imagine what it is
like to gather with over 14,000 Americans, Jews and
non-Jews from all over the country who share a love for
Israel? More than 2/3rds of Congress make an appearance
at the Conference. And with this being an election year –
EVERYONE will be stopping by. More than 2,300 college
students from some 490 college campuses are there.
We will be one of over 275 synagogue delegations in
attendance.
AIPAC is much more than politics. It is through
demonstrations of groundbreaking Israeli innovations,
keynote speeches by American and Israeli leaders, inspiring
moments on stage, and intimate educational sessions, that we will experience the full scale of pro-Israel activism in
three powerful days.
Some have asked me if AIPAC was a little too right wing for
them. I replied that AIPAC is right wing in its politics and it
is left wing as well. It is Republican and it is Democrat and
it is non-partisan. It is Jewish and non-Jewish. There will
be 14,000 people and the only thing we share is a love for
Israel. And in this day and age that cannot and should not
be taken for granted.
At a time when Israel is under attack as it has never been
before, a three-day love fest is as invigorating as it is
encouraging. During the year it is so hard not to get beaten
down by so much we read in the press – all the criticism
and negativity about Israel. Then after a few days of AIPAC
I am reminded that there are so many people who share
my determination to support the land of Israel – in all its
complexity.
There is room for disagreement and you will find plenty
of that at AIPAC. We had a significant delegation from TBS
last year and I am hoping to have an even larger one this
year to celebrate the achievements of the modern State of
Israel and to help secure its future.
If you want more information, take a look at their website:
http://www.policyconference.org/index.asp or feel free
to contact me and I will explain more about why I will be
there. I hope you will too.
I also hope you will join me as we embark on another
exciting study experience on Israel. Entitled: “The Tribes of
Israel: A Shared Homeland for a Divided People" we will
enjoy video lectures from some of Israel’s leading scholars
on topics like Unity and Diversity in Jewish Tradition; The
Orthodox Jewish Tribe, The Liberal Jewish Tribe, The ArabPalestinian Israeli Tribe; Sharing the Public Sphere: New
Foundations for a Jewish Democracy and so much more.
Classes will be held on Sunday mornings from 9:30-11 AM
beginning March 13th and I will be leading the discussions
following the lectures..

There are many things we can achieve together. But I cannot and
Rabbi Lucas and I cannot do this alone…we need you! We need
our congregation to not only support our treasury generously but
be open to see the beauty of our tradition and add and increase
our practices and observances, just as we add and increase the
light of the Hanukiah.
If I can help inspire you to build upon the foundations laid by our
rabbi and our lay leaders, if I can motivate you to be engaged in our
Jewish community and to help our people, if I can encourage you
to increase your observance of or knowledge of Judaism, if I can
be a rabbi who leads you as an authentic interpreter of Judaism,
if I can help comfort you when your mourn and celebrate in your
simchas and be there for you in good times and challenging times
I will feel fulfilled. But most of all, I hope you will consider me a
friend and a listening ear and help you and your family achieve
your spiritual and religious and cultural and educational goals
within the walls of our soon to be 65th anniversary.
I thank you for this opportunity and look forward to helping you
create many meaningful Jewish experiences.
We can continue to build upon our involvement in social action
and tikkun olam and be even more deeply caring to our fellow
congregants.

FROM
THE DESK OF RABBI KERBEL
By Rabbi Paul David Kerbel
“Installation Address”
T
hank you Rabbi Lucas for
your kind and meaningful
installation remarks –
everyone should know that I
deeply respect you and enjoy working with you and hope
that this is the beginning of a wonderful working relationship
between us.
To Richard Levine and Pearl Halegua and the Search and
Negotiating Committees, thank you for choosing me and giving
me the opportunity to serve as a member of your clergy team.
And thanks to Steve Goldenberg, Pearl Halegua, Ellen Walk,
Donna Bartolomeo and Rabbi Lucas for organizing this evening.
I am thrilled that Melissa and all of my children are here and
want to thank them for their support throughout my career
and throughout their lives. It is not easy being the spouse or
child of a rabbi and I thank them for being great at it.
One of the rabbis who inspired me to become a rabbi is Rabbi
Dov Peretz Elkins who is now happily retired in Israel. Rabbi
Adam Feldman succeeded Rabbi Elkins in Princeton. Rabbi
Elkins assumed the pulpit of the synagogue where I was Bar
Mitzvah, Temple Beth El in Rochester, NY in the summer of
1972. Rabbi Elkins devoted his RH and YK sermons of 1972 to
the themes of: “What Can A Congregation Expect of Its Rabbi”
and “What Can a Rabbi Expect of His Congregation.” These
sermons are High Holy Day length sermons and contain many
things for us to consider and discuss – too much for tonight
though.
But Rabbi Elkins quotes the very first rabbi to introduce
sermons in English, Rabbi Isaac Leeser, who almost 150 years
ago made the following statement about the role of the rabbi.
He wrote that the three prerequisites for an effective rabbi
are: “Scholarship, an uncompromising honesty of purpose and
a spirit of fearlessness.”
Now we might suggest other prereqs or job descriptions
today, but Rabbi Leeser was teaching something important: the primary role of a rabbi is to study Judaism and impart,
interpret and transmit the contents of his study to and with
his congregation. Without knowledge, there can be no piety,
no religiosity, no Jewish people, no Judaism. That is why it
is so meaningful that this installation took place on Hanukah. The root of the word Hanukah means both education and
dedication. The Macabees were fighting for their right to
practice Judaism and continue to transmit their tradition
to future generations. In the spirit of Rabbi Leeser and the
Macabees, I try to study a little every day so that I can share
and interpret our tradition with deeper knowledge and fresh
interpretations.
His second prereq – “compromising honesty of purpose” – I
hope to serve TBS faithfully but, – in the words of Benjamin
Franklin – “to serve the public faithfully and at the same time to
please everyone is impossible.” While some synagogues have
busts of their rabbis in their lobbies, and for some congregants,
the rabbi is viewed as almost God-like, I prefer that people
understand and believe that we are simply human – like you, we are imperfect. So while I will try every day to fulfill the
many diverse things a rabbi is asked to do in the course of a
day, please remember first, that I am human and imperfect – I
will make mistakes but always strive to give my best.
Another aspect of Leeser’s view of “honesty of purpose” was
interpreted by the Rev Martin Luther King, Jr. “the clergyman
is not merely a thermometer that records the ideas and
principles of popular opinion; rather he is a thermostat that
transforms the mores of society.” The Rabbi cannot really
speak for his congregation, because our members have diverse
views, but the role of the rabbi is to speak to his congregation
as it is the role of the rabbi to teach, remind and often lead the
congregation to speak out when evil, injustice or oppression
do not allow us to remain silent. It is uniquely our role to shake
you/ us up at times from our routine and our comfortable
places and remind us of our role to help repair and build our
world.
And thirdly, Rabbi Leeser encourages each rabbi to be fearless. At a time where many Jews do not find time to study and learn,
the rabbi must stand up for the study of Torah and our tradition;
at a time where cell phones so penetrate our lives that we
can’t be without them even for a few minutes, it is the role of
the rabbi to remind us to look into the eyes and hearts of our
family and friends – that we will be present in their lives and
open and available to and for them. At a time of increased and
unceasing hatred of Judaism and Israel, it is our responsibility
to remind our people to support, invest, donate and visit the
Land and people of Israel and to view every Jew in the world
as our brothers and sisters. Ultimately, rabbis are dugmaot
– and I hope by my practice, my teaching, my religiousity, my
search for spirituality amidst the noise of everyday life, that I,
together with Rabbi Lucas can set an example for our members
and their families.
I have some personal goals as I begin to think about the
contributions I might be able to make to our Temple.
I care deeply about our youth and hope to help build our youth
program to one of vibrancy and greatness.
I care deeply about the Jewish education of our congregation
at all ages and in all venues and will work with Rabbi Lucas
to add opportunities for study and to expand our educational,
religious and cultural horizons.
I care deeply about our movement. I am proud to be a
Conservative Jew and want us to deepen our roots and
participation in the various sister institutions of our movement.
I believe that TBS should be the place to go for community
lectures and scholars in residence. I would like to see us
re-establish ourselves as the ‘go-to’ synagogue for UJA
Federation and JNF, AIPAC and Friends of IDF, Israel Bonds and
our Conservative institutions, just to name a few.
For our synagogue to flourish, I would like to see us expand our
vision out into the community but also deepen the roots of a
very committed and knowledgeable congregation.

FROM
THE PRESIDENT’S DESK
By Pearl Halegua
‫דוגמה אישית‬
Doogmah Eesheet: Lead by Personal Example
I
can recall the words of
encouragement that I received in June at the start of
my presidency from people
whose faces were so familiar
to me to those I hardly knew. Some intimated I had my
work cut out for me, and shook my hand and wished me
luck…. little did I realize that my new position would include
being called upon for my opinion on things like termite
damage and repair. In cases like that…I did need luck.
Some people extended their hands and said, “I am here for
you; if you need me, just call.” And I did. I called upon my
friends numerous times for different things. One of them
was my friend Molly Chernofsky. She was a wonderful
role model as a sisterhood leader and a mentor. We often
discussed the importance of recognizing the mentor’s role
in helping those who succeed us. Yes, Molly was amongst
the many friends and supporters here at TBS who made this
temple a Kehila Kedosha. Thank goodness we are blessed
with a number of individuals who serve our congregation
and the community at large each in their own way.
On December 11th, the formal installation of our Associate
Rabbi was coupled with the opening of our museum exhibit
entitled, “Light”. Bat-Sheva Slavin curated this beautiful
exhibit. I associate Bat-Sheva with Btzalel, the artisan
in Exodus, chosen to design and create the Tabernacle
for he had an exceptional eye for the aesthetic as well
as the ability to craft his vision. Bat-Sheva , for years has
stimulated our senses with visual beauty, serving as our
role model for appreciating the arts.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Debby Brosowsky at
this point, not only does Debby edit this bulletin, serve as
a trustee, sisterhood board member etc. but as Bat-Sheva
pointed out at our Board of Trustees meeting, Debby is her
right hand in getting the exhibits ready. We all appreciate
the finished product but often we forget the behind the
scenes work that is required in bringing a vision into reality.
Thank you Debby for setting an example of dedication for
us.
It is incumbent upon me at this time to remind our
members that in addition to vision and dedication our
museum needs funding in order to continue. I would like
to thank Richard Levine for leading by example at our
board meeting by responding to this call with a generous
donation. Yasher Koach.
His initial offering stimulated others to do likewise.
Doogmah Eesheet, lead by personal example.
As mentioned, we have many members who make TBS
a Kehila Kedosha, some not only by their participation in
the temple but by serving the community at large as well.
Recently, I learned that Dr. David Rosenthal was presented
the New York State Department of Health, Commissioner’s
Special Recognition Award. This award is presented in
recognition of individuals for their commitment to improve
and promote the health and well being of all. David has
developed innovative interventions to promote HIV testing
and prevention. Yasher Koach, David for setting an example
of Tikkun Olam as related to medicine.
Congregants from other shuls come here for kaddish
because their temples can’t get a minyan together. We
have two a day. We have senior luncheons, Yom Hashoah
programs, Lunch and Learn, Comedy Night, nursery school,
Hebrew school, our Machon HS attendance is up and just
last month we hosted learning workshops for over 250
Hebrew School educators. We have a tikvah program for
children whose curriculum needs to be modified and we
are seeking more ways to reach out to our TBS family as
well as the greater community.
These last few Shabbats our temple was full; on some
days we had to open the back door of the sanctuary
for additional seating. A visitor from another temple
commented, "What a beautiful service and how wonderful
to be part of a congregation where there is a kiddush going
on in several parts of the building, celebrating a simcha.
Your temple is so vibrant and alive." Yes, we are all that.
This is our temple’s 65th anniversary…we have our
concerns both in-house and global, but we have a
leadership team, clergy and staff who are proactive and see
the needs of the future. We are working hard on planning
for it. Please, do not hesitate to call a board member or
me if you have a particular concern or suggestion. Come
to our congregational meeting in February to get a better
understanding of what is going on, ask questions and give
us your input.
Temple Beth Sholom is here for all, meeting the needs of
many in many different ways. There are numerous things
in which we need your support. In this coming year I hope
to see a lot of extended hands followed by, “Call me if you
need me, I will be there.” Please be there in the way that
works for you.

BARNET & ANNETTE OSTROW EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER
By Helayne Cohen, Early Childhood Center Director
T
he winter doldrums have
no place here at the
Early Childhood
Center.
Upon our
return from the
December break, we moved right into winter
mode - snow & ice, freezing and melting,
cold weather apparel along with cold
weather activities are all being highlighted,
researched and studied. Included in our
winter study is also hibernation and migration
(with a discussion about Shabbat Shira) and
how we help our feathered friends during the
winter season. We will also be busy learning about
Tu B'Shevat-celebrating in our classrooms with a seder
and discovering that our friends in Israel are celebrating
springtime.
Our four year old children and parents look forward to
spending a Saturday evening at school as we join together
for "Hooray for Havdalah". Together with our clergy, we
will enjoy a family dinner followed by a spiritual Havdalah
service. This is a heartwarming way to say farewell to
Shabbat and to begin a new week.
Our Toddlers and their families will spend time together
in school for "Shabbat Twogether" which includes
songs, prayers, grape juice, candle lighting and of
course challah. This gives our toddler families
a chance to see how very much their children
are experiencing at school.
And, is there anything better than coming
back to school at night in your P.J.'s to see
your friends, learn the Shema prayer, enjoy
pizza, cookies and milk and hear a bedtime
story? That's what our PJ Shema party is all
about! So, winter blues - not here at the ECC! Registration for the 2016 – 2017 school year has begun. If
you or anyone you know is interested in finding out more

MEN’S CLUB CORNER
By Michael Mand, President
M
en’s Club has been quite busy lately. It all
started back in November with our Paid-up
Member’s Dinner/Texas Hold ‘em Evening. Now that I think about it, I don’t remember who
won, but I’ve been told the winner won more than
$300.00. (I don’t think it was me; I probably would
have remembered that!)
On December 1, in an event close to my own heart,
Men’s Club joined the Sisterhood of Temple Judea and
the J. C. C. in sponsoring an evening of talk and acoustic
music with guitarist Steve Katz, founding member
of two very influential bands, The Blues Project and
Blood, Sweat & Tears. I wrote earlier that I had hoped
to introduce Steve that evening and I’m happy to
report that my wish was granted. I got to say a few
opening words and to relay a story or two about what
his music meant to me and how it served to shape my
musical tastes over the years. The lecture/concert was
well attended and I even made a few new Facebook
friends that evening.
Two days later we had our planning meeting in which
we really didn’t plan anything except to continue with
the events we’ve already planned. But, when you look
at the schedule, you realize it’s probably enough.
Comedy night, sponsored by Men’s Club, has become
a temple favorite and this year’s gathering on Saturday,
December 5, was no exception. Rabbi Lucas warmed
the enthusiastic audience with his unique comedic
delivery – it’s all in the delivery – that made sure we
were ready to laugh. Our three comedians took his
hand-off and scored big! We all had a great time.

addition, seven of us gave two units of packed red
cells. This resulted in TBS reaching its implied goal of
33 units. We appreciate Michael’s efforts.
Another annual favorite is when we prepare and deliver
the latkes for the Hebrew School Chanukah Assembly. This year it took place on Tuesday, December 8. I have
to admit that I was quite surprised at how many men
were able to get off work early to help out. Once we
finished the cooking we were all able to stand back and
watch the kids as they had, what I would call, a blast!
There’s a life insurance commercial I see during
every New York Giants’ loss this year that says “keep
good going”, and that’s just what we intend to do. (I
know; The Giants have won a few games this year.) Upcoming events in January and February include our
next Defensive Driving course – the date has not been
determined, the World Wide Wrap on February 7, and
Men’s Club Shabbat on February 27.
Anyone who is interested is encouraged to join us at
our next meeting on Thursday, January 7 – dinner will
be served.
Follow-up: In my last article I mentioned that Past
President David Levine suggested that we offer a
course to train people to lead our daily minyan and
to be gabbai rishon on Shabbat. I approached Cantor
Barnoy and we agreed to meet and, if there is interest,
to set aside some time to offer that course. I’ll keep
you posted.
As I said, let’s “keep, good, going!”

SISTERHOOD SCOOP
By Cindy Feldman, President
Super-Sister Heroes in Action, Making A Difference!
Dedicated to the Memory of Molly Chernofsky z”l, Our Friend, Mentor, & Leader
S
ince the Kick-Off event celebrating our 65-year
legacy on October 1st, Sisterhood members have
joined forces to become TBS real-life heroes.
At The Great Big Challah Bake on October 22nd, our
superheroes pounded their dough into loaves of love
to serve at their Shabbat tables. Beside learning how to
braid, the women danced together
and helped each other gain the
confidence they needed to plunge
their hearts and souls into their
bowls. Best of all they found they
“kneaded” each other to create this
wonderful Shabbat experience.
As part of the evening, these 100
women collected almost 200 paper
goods that were delivered by 10
TBS Sisterhood representatives
to the Mid-Island Y JCC Food
Pantry in Plainview in cooperation
with The Fourth Week initiative
launched by UJA Federation
Women’s Philanthropy. The shelves
were stocked by our volunteers
to capacity; it was humbling and
inspiring. Thank you, superheroes,
led by Mahvash Zarabi, Helene
Lurie and your understudy (me),
for making all this possible and for
energizing us!
Hyde Park attended the event and expressed his
gratitude for the more than 400 special occasion dresses
and business suits that we collected to assist women to
return to the work force or to enjoy a family simcha.
The highlight of the evening, however, was Rabbi
Alan Lucas’ ravishing walk down the runway showing
off his tangerine backless evening
gown featuring a plunging neckline
and beaded accents—he showed
us his humorous side when we
needed it most, transforming the
tears of sadness he evoked with his
earlier delivery of a moving poem
in memory of our cherished leader,
Molly Chernofsky z”l. Thank you
Rabbi Lucas; you buoyed our heavy
The Great Big Challah Bake
hearts that evening. We are most
grateful.
Our superheroes continued their
commitment to “make a difference”
at their annual Chanukah Party on
December 7th.
Fall Membership Dinner &
Fashion Forward Showcase
Our 40-women strong team wrapped
over 40 Winter Hug baskets with their
donated tins of tea, hot cocoa, and
coffee along with a new hat, scarf,
or a pair of gloves for seniors living
at or below the poverty line to be
distributed with the help of UJA and
the Mid-Island Y JCC pantry. We ate
latkes and sufganiot, laughed with
each other, and created something
special to warm up the cold days
ahead for those less fortunate.
Our superheroes jumped into
action again under the leadership
of Wende Jager-Hyman, Deborah
Brosowsky, Mimi Weitz, Cindy Katz,
Amy Magid, and me to pull our Fall

Thank you to Paul Freedman of Stand With Us for presenting these very informative training sessions.
Why not sponsor a Sunday minyan breakfast? Your contribution will celebrate a simcha or
honor the memory of a loved one
In addition, a particularly meaningful way to commemorate a milestone in your
life is to sponsor a Kiddush on Saturday morning, thereby sharing your
simcha with the Temple family.
Please call: David Oestreich at 621-3046 or the Temple office at 621-2288
for details or to reserve a date.
We are grateful to the following members

number of events are in the planning stages
for 2016. Disco Night at Club TBS is set for
Saturday, January 30 from 7:30 - midnight.
Besides dancing away the evening in your party attire,
you will enjoy a buffet by Joseph Craig Caterers, and
have the opportunity to shop for jewelry and giftware
by Ambalu, bid on one-of-a-kind memorabilia, trips,
and fantasy prizes from Grandstand Sports, and try your
luck with raffle prizes. A good time will be had by all!
For further information, contact the co-chairpersons,
Odellia Fischer ([email protected]) or Jocelyn
Wasserman ([email protected]).
On Monday, February 22, Retired Colonel Miri Eisin, a
leader in the Israeli intelligence community and media
expert, will be speaking at TBS on regional geopolitics
and security-related issues in the media worldwide.
Details to follow.
Reserve Sunday, March 6 for “The Persian Experience.”
Although plans have not yet been finalized, a
screening of the movie, “Desert Dancer,” a film about
underground dancing in Iran and its theme of rebellion
is contemplated, along with a special Persian-themed
exhibit and a delicious Persian meal.
Last year, our Lower East Side tour was a big hit. This
year, on Sunday, April 3, we are planning a bus tour of
Brooklyn with Professor William Helmreich, who has
walked virtually every street in New York City, nearly
6,000 miles of blocks, and has written a book about the
effort, “The New York Nobody Knows.” This insiders’
bus tour will include stops at various not-so-familiar
places that should forever alter your thoughts about
Brooklyn. There will be a strict limit on the number of
participants for this event.
Meir Panim will be sponsoring a Cantors' Concert
here, with our very own Cantor Barnoy and Cantor Avi
Albrecht on Thursday evening, May 12th. Details to
follow.
And, as has been touted for much of the year, the notto-be-missed event-of-the-year will be the Gala, to be
held on Sunday, May 22. We will be celebrating the
65th birthday of TBS and honoring Rabbi Alan Lucas,
who will also be celebrating a milestone birthday this
year. Hold the dates!

onday, January 25th is Tu B’Shevat, the New
Year of the Trees. What is the significance of
trees to us as Jews?
The Torah is called our
“Etz Chaim--Tree of Life”. The Torah is like the tree
trunk, with the branches
and leaves on the tree the
mitzvot--the actions of
how to fulfill the Torah’s
commandments. To take
on all 613 commandments is a daunting and impossible
task. However, it is not an “all or nothing” proposition. Each of us should try to do as many mitzvot as we can.
Our Torah Fund theme this year is “Natah Karem--She
plants a vineyard”. Like a grapevine or a fruit tree, it
often takes some time until it is ready to eat. The seed
that is planted needs nurturing. The same is true of
Jewish observance. We must plant the seeds of doing
mitzvot--observing Shabbat and Holidays, doing acts
of Chesed (like visiting the sick, feeding and clothing
the poorer among us, etc.) and then nurture them,
integrating them into our daily lives.
As part of your Tu B’Shevat celebration this year, plant
a “seed” of a mitzvah you would like to do this year,
nurture it and make it part of your daily life

Genesis….The 1950’s
Part One
P
rior to 1947, the very few Jewish residents
of Roslyn travelled to other communities
for religious worship. With the post-war
building boom, many young Jewish families moved
into the area, attracted by the Levitt Organization’s development of the Country Club Homes and
other value opportunities. Soon the Roslyn Jewish
Community Center was established with the early
services being held at the Reverend John Van Zanten’s
Roslyn Presbyterian Church. Known today as Temple
Sinai, the congregation grew, until four years later, the
congregants voted to join the Reform Movement with
the result that, many of the men and women who had
labored long and hard to establish that temple in its
fine new building, were compelled to leave and reestablish a more traditional synagogue.
In June, 1951 an invitation was sent out to the Jewish
community: “You are cordially invited to attend a
Charter Convocation for the founding of a Liberal
Conservative Jewish Center for the Roslyn area… Little
did those 30 plus families who extended the invitation,
and the 40 or so families who met with them that
fateful day, know of how their modest plans would
become a juggernaut of intense activities on behalf of
every aspect of Jewish life here in our community, in
the nation at large, in our beloved State of Israel, and
throughout much of the world.
While the phrase, Liberal Conservative, soon gave
way to Conservative the aspirations of the recently
discharged veterans yielded up the name Beth Sholom,
house of peace, inaugural religious services were held
on Friday, August 3rd 1951; 14 acres on a lovely hill
overlooking Roslyn Road were, somehow, purchased
for $30,000 in September; and shortly thereafter, to
the wonderment of everyone concerned, 500 people
filled the Roslyn Theater to celebrate the first High
Holiday Services of the fledgling congregation.
(This article was adapted from THE CHRONICLES OF
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM, a prodigious history of the first
40 years of our synagogue, which had been compiled
and edited by Leonard Kliegman in celebration of TBS’s
40th anniversary in 1991.)
Membership Has Its Rewards
By Irving S. Chernofsky, Chairman Cemetery Committee
W
hen you think of a membership benefit, you will
rarely, if ever, think about the cemetery. But one
of the lesser known benefits of membership at
Temple Beth Sholom is exactly that. Temple Beth Sholom,
as a service to its members, makes available plots at New
Montefiore Cemetery, in an area reserved for Temple Beth
Sholom. These plots are available at very reasonable prices.
We recently surveyed Beth Moses Cemetery, Wellwood
Cemetery and New Montefiore Cemetery. All of these
cemeteries are located in Pinelawn, NY, less than a 30 minute
drive from the Temple. We determined that the Temple is
providing a significant discount, to its members, on the prices
for plots in the Temple area. This discount is approximately
33% to 50% lower than the prices that the cemeteries
currently sell plots for.
The Temple can provide members with either single or double
plots, or family plots of four or more graves. The family plots
have a single family monument that has the family name, and
individual footstones for each interment. Each single plot can
have an individual headstone, and each double plot can have
either two single headstones or a double headstone, at the
family’s option. If you have any interest in purchasing plots in
the Temple Beth Sholom area of New Montefiore Cemetery,
please contact the Temple office.
In addition, Temple Beth Sholom in conjunction with New
Montefiore Cemetery, now allows grave plantings. When
an interment is made on our cemetery grounds and the
family wishes to arrange for a planting, they will be allowed
to plant Mature Yews (consisting of 3 shrubs 18”- 24” wide)
purchased from the cemetery. Families that wish to have
grave plantings will be required to purchase “Perpetual Care”
from the cemetery. These shrubs do wonders in improving
the look of the gravesite. Grave plantings will also be allowed
at the Temple Beth Sholom area of Beth Moses Cemetery.
All families that have already had an interment at either
cemetery and desire grave plantings should contact the
cemetery to make the appropriate arrangements.
The Jewish way of life includes many Jewish life cycle events.
During a typical Shabbat service at Temple Beth Sholom you
can witness any of several of our Jewish life cycle events. You
can witness the naming of a baby girl and her welcoming into
the Jewish community; you can witness a bar or bat mitzvah,
where our Jewish adolescents are transformed, right before
our eyes, into Jewish adults; or you can witness an aufruf,
where two of our Jewish adults prepare for life as a married
couple.
Just as there is a Jewish way of life, there is also a Jewish
way of death. Two basic considerations come into play when
death strikes and the laws of death and mourning become
applicable. One consideration involves the principle of kevod
hamet, treatment of the deceased with reverence and
respect. The other involves the principle of kevod hechai,
concern for the welfare of the living. In respect for members
of our congregation who have suffered a loss, Temple Beth
Sholom allows the family to hold funeral services at the
Temple.
Yes, membership has its rewards, and although we hope you
will never need these membership benefits, it’s nice to know
that they are available to you if you do need them.
