Jewish Treats Acts of Kindness for Israel

15.07.2014
On this Fast of the 17th of Tammuz, Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald, the Director of NJOP, discusses how remembering what happened on this day in Jewish history helps us identify with our past but it is also a day when we need to identify with the present and future. Even while people are protecting themselves from Hamas’ rockets, some admirable stories are coming out from Israel. Rabbi Buchwald tells of a couple that’s wedding was canceled in the south of Israel due to rockets nearby and a councilman treated them to a wedding in Jerusalem. This should remind us that all the meritorious acts will be for the merit of those in Israel. So let’s use this day and the coming days to do acts of kindness so that our people will be spared any future sorrow and God should bless us with goodness and peace.

KiruvMedia Subbotniks – Russians who embraced Judaism – Khazars and more…

25.06.2014

The Subbotniks were ethnic Russian peasants in southern Russia who embraced Jewish practice and converted to Judaism more than 200 years ago under the Czarist regime.
They were referred to by the term “Subbotniks” because of their love of the Subbot, which is Russian for Sabbath.
In the early 19th century, Czar Alexander I expelled them from their homes and deported them to the far reaches of the empire as punishment for their adoption of Judaism.
They were later ruthlessly persecuted by the Communists, and thousands of them were murdered by the Germans after the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in World War II.
There are still an estimated 15,000 Subbotnik Jews living primarily in southern Russia and in Siberia, most of whom wish to return to the traditions of their ancestors and emigrate to Israel.

STAND WITH ISRAEL

SRAEL is the historic homeland of the Jewish people. God gave that land to the descendants of Abraham and Sarah, who are the Jews. The Bible says he’ll never break that covenant: Judges 2:1 “I brought you unto the land which I swore unto your fathers; and I said, I will Never break my covenant with you”. God set forth what he had done for Israel, and what he had promised.

I AM A JEW — Introduction

29.01.2013
The American Jewish pre-teen considers their Bar or Bat Mitzvah to be various things. For some it is the end of religious schooling. For others it is the task of learning a Torah portion. For many, it’s plans for a big party. And while formal Jewish education may indeed conclude at the age of 13, a young person’s understanding and appreciation of their roles as Modern Jews has only just begun to develop. As these perceptive ‘tweens’ approach the often-confusing stages of adolescence, their Judaism can continue to be an integral source of dignity and strength in their lives. The time for answering their questions about Judaism will soon be over. The opportunity to build an intellectual foundation of progressive Jewish pride is now.

The goal of the film ‘I Am A Jew’ is not to teach students ‘how to be a Jew’, but rather how to think about and practice Judaism in a proud new way. Only then will they understand and appreciate what it means to say, “I Am A Jew.”

“A Mentsh” is a movie shot entirely in the Yiddish language. It’s set in the former multinational city of Lviv, Ukraine, and the first part of a planned Yiddish trilogy (Lviv, Tel Aviv,New York). Lviv was a centre of Jewish life for more than 600 years. During World War II this special culture was destroyed. 75 years after the beginning of the war, Boris Dorfman takes us on an oneiric trip to all the places of horror and hope reflecting the Jewish history. The 90-year-old activist is virtually the last one in town still speaking the almost extinct language of Yiddish – he is like a living relic of the past and a fighter against oblivion. While remembering the past, he lives in the present and tries to prepare the people for the future — he is “a mentsh”, someone full of love and empathy.

Architect of the Jewish Future (Mordecai M. Kaplan)

21.03.2014 The Program for Jewish Civilization, the Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood, and the Department of Jewish Studies of McGill University are hosted a conference on the life, work, and legacy of Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan.

Rabbi Mordecai M. Kaplan (1881-1983) is now widely acknowledged to have been one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of the 20th century as a founder of Reconstructionist Judaism. During the conference presenters explored the ways in which his thought may be even more important in the 21st century.

Schnittke’s early music shows the strong influence of Dmitri Shostakovich. He developed a polystylistic technique in works such as the epic First Symphony (1969–1972) and First Concerto Grosso (1977). In the 1980s, Schnittke’s music began to become more widely known abroad with the publication of his Second (1980) and Third (1983) String Quartets and the String Trio (1985); the ballet Peer Gynt (1985–1987); the Third (1981), Fourth (1984), and Fifth (1988) Symphonies; and the Viola (1985) and 1st Cello (1985–1986) Concertos. As his health deteriorated, Schnittke’s music started to abandon much of the extroversion of his polystylism and retreated into a more withdrawn, bleak style.Schnittke’s father, Harry Viktorovich Schnittke (1914–1975, rus.), was Jewish and born in Frankfurt.[1] He moved to the USSR in 1927 and worked as a journalist and translatorfrom the Russian language into German. His mother, Maria Iosifovna Schnittke (née Vogel, 1910–1972), was a Volga German born in Russia.

Variations on a liturgy for Tisha b’Av


Variations on a liturgy for Tisha b’Av

Posted: 28 Jul 2014 12:00 PM PDT

Tisha b’Av is almost upon us — that painful day when we remember the fall of the first Temple in 586 BCE, and the fall of the second Temple in 70 CE. The anniversary, tradition teaches, of all kinds of other atrocities, from Crusades to the Expulsion from Spain to the Chmielnicki massacre in Poland in the 17th century to the expulsion from the Warsaw Ghetto during the last century.

It’s a dark day. It’s also a darkness which contains within it the seeds of light and redemption. Tradition teaches that the messiah will be born on the afternoon of Tisha b’Av — that from the depths of our grief will come the spark of our greatest hopes for transformation and wholeness.

This year I’m delighted to be able to share two versions of a Tisha b’Av liturgy — a collaboration between myself and Reb David (rabbinic student David Markus) who serves Temple Beth El of City Island. One version will be used at his “shul by the sea;” the other will be used at Congregation Beth Israel here in the Berkshires:

 

Download For the Sake of Ascent TBE [23 pages, 1.7mb, pdf]

Download For the Sake of Ascent CBI [17 pages, 173k, pdf]

 

Both versions feature excerpts from Eicha (Lamentations), the prayers of the evening service, and poems by Yehuda Amichai, Toge Sankichi, and Mark Nazimova, among others. Both feature prayers written by David and by me.

The TBE version draws a closer connection to the 9/11 bombings (after all, from City Island they could see the smoke rising); the CBI version draws a closer connection with recent trauma in the Middle East. The TBE version has a few songs which aren’t in the CBI version; the CBI version contains a text study which isn’t in the TBE version. The CBI version interweaves Eicha with the evening service, while the TBE version doesn’t. They’re variations on a theme.

I hope that these siddurim will open up some of this holiday’s power and potential for the daveners who use them.

Tisha b’Av begins next Monday, August 4, at sundown. (CBI’s service will be at 8pm on Monday evening; all are welcome.)

 

Preparing for Elul

Posted: 28 Jul 2014 06:05 AM PDT

ElulReflections-FrontCoverToday is Rosh Chodesh Av, the first day of the lunar month of Av. One month from now we’ll enter Elul, the month immediately preceding the Days of Awe. Many of us strive to make Elul a month of introspection and spiritual preparation for the powerful holidays ahead.

Last year I blogged daily during the month of Elul, as part of #blogElul, an internet-wide carnival of posts on pre-high-holiday themes organized by Rabbi Phyllis Sommer (a.k.a. Ima Bima.)

Some weeks after the holidays were over, I began receiving email from my friend and teacher Rabbi Daniel Siegel in response to my #BlogElul postings. He suggested that I might share these Elul meditations in printed form, for those who would enjoy having a tangible book to hold and leaf through.

I did a bit of editing and pruning and layout work. And now, in time for the Elul to come, I offer a new chapbook of Elul material: Elul Reflections. Here’s a description:

Prepare for the Days of Awe (the High Holidays) by reading these daily meditations for the lunar month of Elul, exploring the season’s themes of forgiveness, transformation, and change. Each day of Elul is matched with a short essay or poem arising out of that day’s theme. And each theme is a verb, an invitation to action, from “Prepare,” “Act, and “Bless” to “Know,” “Believe,” and “Return.”

This volume is meant to help you enter wholly into the spiritual potential of this month, the season of teshuvah, repentance/return. Also in these pages: a Psalm 27 variation by Rabbi Brant Rosen, a set of other Elul resources, and ample space to jot down your own responses as you do your Elul work.

Of course, you’re also welcome to simply return to my 2013 archives and reread last year’s posts here. And who knows, it’s possible I’ll do #blogElul again this year too, in which case those who subscribe to this blog will receive new material every day of Elul once again! But for those who liked what I shared last year and would enjoy being able to reread those posts in bound form, here you go. My thanks are due to Reb Daniel for his encouragement, and to R’ Phyllis Sommer / Ima Bima for running #BlogElul in the first place.

Fasting today with Jews and Muslims for peace

Fasting today with Jews and Muslims for peacePosted: 15 Jul 2014 07:04 AM PDT

10504985_10154414238775171_7317168910845165076_oI don’t usually fast on the 17th of Tamuz.

For that matter, I didn’t even take on the practice of fasting for Tisha b’Av until a few years ago. (See This year’s wrestle with Tisha b’Av, 2011.) I didn’t grow up observing the minor fasts, and I’ve never taken them on as a practice.

Instead I’ve tended toward finding other ways of understanding 17th Tammuz. Instead of focusing on the breach of Jerusalem’s walls 2,586 years ago, I ponder breaches in the emotional walls which keep us safe, or the internal and interpersonal walls which need to come down in order for genuine connections to form.

But this year there is so much trauma and tragedy in Israel and Palestine, so much grief and destruction and fear happening right now, that I am fasting today and I am dedicating my fast to peace, compassion and kindness in that beloved corner of our world where so many people are suffering.

This was not my idea. Across Israel and Palestine, groups of Jews and Muslims are consciously choosing to fast on this day in solidarity with one another as what was initially called a Hunger Strike Against Violence, and has become part of an initiative called בוחרים בחיים / اختيار الحياة / Choose Life. The idea came from Eliaz Cohen, an Israeli Jew who lives in Gush Etzion, and Ali Abu Awwad, a Palestinian Muslim who lives in Beit Ummar, north of Khalil (Hebron). Cohen is a poet and a self-identified second-generation “settler kid” who supports the idea of one homeland for two peoples. Abu Awwad is founder of Al Tariq (The Way), which teaches Palestinians principles of nonviolent resistance.

(For more, see the front-page story in yesterday’s Times of IsraelAided by calendar, Jews and Arabs Unite in Joint Fast: West Bank activists organize Choose Life, a shared initiative to combat political violence and promote coexistence.)

ChooselifeprayerThough the fast originated in the Middle East, it has spread around the globe. Joint Jewish-Muslim fasts (and dual-faith study sessions and communal joint iftar / break-the-fast meals) are taking place not only in Israel and Palestine but also around the United States, in various locations around Europe, even in Kuwait. (For more information, you can check out the Choose Life FB page; for English speakers, I recommend the parallel site Fast for Peace, which arose independently but is very much the same.)

What does abstaining from food and drink for a day actually accomplish? I know that it won’t change the external realities on the ground. But communal fasting is a very old Jewish way of connecting with others in grief and in hope. I hope that the fast will make an impact on we who are participating in it, and will inspire us to take action to bring peace and healing. And perhaps the fast will bring some hope to those who hear or read about it, and will inspire them to take action, too. Here’s something written by Rabbi Jill Jacobs at T’ruah:

As Jews, we know that fasting is one of our tradition’s main expressions of a public crisis. While most of us don’t believe that God will literally heed our fast and come to intervene, we nevertheless yearn for a way to express our sorrow and to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters. Publicly embracing an interfaith  spiritual action is a small step, but it is better than privately wringing our hands and beating our breasts.

I know from my other experiences of religious fasting (on Yom Kippur, which I’ve done almost every year since I became bat mitzvah, and on Tisha b’Av in more recent years) that a religious fast entails a kind of spiritual journey. I was in one spiritual / emotional place when the fast began this morning; I expect that I will be in a different place by the time it is over. I won’t know where the journey is going to take me until I get there.

The original call to fast for peace arises out of the violence, fear, and heartbreak happening in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza right now. There’s a natural commonality in the fact that both Jewish and the Muslim communities will be fasting today from sunup to sundown. I am glad to join Jews and Muslims around the world in dedicating our fast to praying for an end to the violence in the Middle East.

I also find myself returning to prayers for kindness and compassion, both in those wartorn places and in the rest of this world. The violence isn’t happening on the ground where I live, but the hatred and mistrust which have ousted kindness and compassion from the hearts of those who commit that violence — that hatred and mistrust are everywhere.

Fastforpeace-01My online friend Lee Weissman, who blogs and tweets under the moniker Jihadi Jew, recently posted that he can no longer engage in conversations about Israel and Palestine via social media because the vitriol is so great that he has given up that public discourse. I understand the impulse. The rhetoric I’ve been seeing (from all “sides”) has been bringing me to the brink of panic attacksbecause I am so emotionally invested that my heart feels bruised by every instance of violence, every angry comment, every insistence that “they” deserve whatever they get. If we can’t collectively transcend that kind of thinking, I don’t see how the situation will ever improve.

17 Tamuz is the day when the Jewish community remembers the breach of Jerusalem’s city walls by the Babylonian army in 586 BCE. That breach was the first damage to the city’s integrity. Three weeks later, the Babylonian army destroyed the Temple and exiled the Jews. This year what is broken on 17 Tamuz is my heart. I’ve always been a “sensitive soul,” moved by strong emotion (both my own feelings, and those expressed by those around me). And I was in Israel and the West Bank only a few months ago, which rekindled my feeling of connection with that land and with its peoples. Maybe these are the reasons why this year the renewed violence and bloodshed there are so emotionally and spiritually devastating to me.

In the traditional Jewish understanding, a public communal fast can be a tool of teshuvah / turning-toward-God, an expression of grief and mourning, and/or an opportunity for supplication and pleading with God. My fast against violence today aims to be all three of these. I seek to make teshuvah for the ways I’ve been complicit in allowing violence to continue. I grieve every single death in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, most especially those of children. And I ask God with all my heart, all my soul, and all my might to help us build a different world, a world of connection and compassion and peace. Please, God, please, God, please.

I’ll close this post with a prayer written by Sheikh Ibtisam Mahamid and Rabbi Tamar Elad-Appelbaum, distributed by the Choose Life folks along with prayers and scriptural quotations for study in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. They write:

God of Life
Who heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds

May it be your will to hear the prayer of mothers
For you did not create us to kill each other
Nor to live in fear, anger or hatred in your world
But rather you have created us so we can grant permission to one another to sanctify
Your name of Life, your name of Peace in this world.

For these things I weep, my eye, my eye runs down with water
For our children crying at nights,
For parents holding their children with despair and darkness in their hearts
For a gate that is closing and who will open it while day has not yet dawned.

And with my tears and prayers which I pray
And with the tears of all women who deeply feel the pain of these difficult days
I raise my hands to you please God have mercy on us
Hear our voice that we shall not despair
That we shall see life in each other,
That we shall have mercy for each other,
That we shall have pity on each other,
That we shall hope for each other

And we shall write our lives in the book of Life
For your sake God of Life
Let us choose Life.

For you are Peace, your world is Peace and all that is yours is Peace,
And so shall be your will and let us say Amen.

Amen.

A prayer in remembrance – now in Hebrew

A prayer in remembrance – now in HebrewPosted: 14 Jul 2014 08:26 AM PDT

Not long ago I posted a prayer co-written with Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb in remembrance of Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Sha’ar, Eyal Yifrah, and Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir. (It’s here: A prayer in remembrance.)

Rabbi Lila Veissid, who serves Kibbutz Ha-Ma’apil in central Israel,  has translated that prayer into Hebrew. With her gracious permission, her translation is reprinted here.

 

תפילת זיכרון
מאת הרבה רחל ברנבלט
והרבה לין גוטליב

 

יהי רצון שזכרם של בנינו
שנהרגו בשל שנאה חסרת פשר
יהיה לברכה.

יהי רצון שרוחם תעלה
ותתנחם בחיבוקה החם
והאימהי של אלוהים.

יהי רצון שילדינו היקרים יהיו בטוחים מכל צרה.
יהי רצון שכל הילדים יהיו ילדינו.
יהי רצון שנגן על כל ההורים מן השכול.

יהי רצון שלבבנו ולבבם של בני עמנו
יירפא במהרה בימינו
מפצעי העבר וההווה.

יהי רצון שכל הורה אבֵל ימצא ניחומים.
יהי רצון שנזכה לראות את היום
שבו לא יהיו עוד הורים אבֵלים
(You can read the prayer in English at the original post: A prayer in remembrance, July 3 2014.)

Poetry and prayer are all I’ve gotPosted: 13 Jul 2014 04:44 AM PDT

I have been watching the news (and reading blog posts and tweets and Facebook updates) out of Israel and the Palestinian territories with a sense of unbearable heartbreak. It brings me to the brink of something like a panic attack: my chest tightening, my throat choked with tears, the embodied feeling that the grief will wash me away altogether. And I am aware that those who live there are experiencing something far more powerful.

The only thing which brings any comfort is poetry and prayer. Bethlehem Blogger posted A prayer in times of violence,which though it is explicitly Christian speaks to me nonetheless. Wendell Berry’s poem The peace of wild things speaks right to my heart. I daven the oseh shalom blessing — “may the One Who makes peace in the high heavens make peace also for us” — with particular fervor.

If there are prayers or poems which bring you comfort at times like these, please feel free to share them in the comments so that other readers (and I) can benefit from them.

I wrote a prayer in 2012 called Prayer for the Children of Abraham / Ibrahim, which begins:

For every aspiring ballerina huddled
scared in a basement bomb shelter

For every toddler in his mother’s arms
    behind rubble of concrete and rebar

For every child who’s learned to distinguish
“our” bombs from “their” bombs by sound…

 

I hate that it is once again resonant. I yearn for the day when this prayer will look outdated and ridiculous — when the children of our children, running across this prayer in some shred of their grandparents’ generation, will say “I can’t believe that war went on for so long.” Please, God, may the day come speedily and soon.

What Israeli Schoolchildren Sing to Deal With Rockets

09.07.2014
This song was composed by a local teacher and has been taught to hundreds of schoolchildren within firing range of Gaza’s rockets to help them deal with the fear and trauma of having 15 seconds to run for cover when the Color Red siren sounds.

Shachar Bar, an art therapist who teaches in Sderot, became increasingly alarmed after seeing the thousands of children of the western Negev suffering the cumulative effects of trauma due to the ongoing barrage of Kassam rockets from Gazan Palestinians. Teachers reported the fear and panic being heightened each time the recorded alert “Color Red” sounded, giving students 15 second to run for cover.

“Children experienced real developmental regressions, some began bedwetting,” she said. “They were getting hysterical when the alarm sounded — some freezing in place, unable to seek cover. One day I felt like ‘now is the time’ and I took this song I’d made up to a kindergarten class.”

The song begins with the children mimicking the alarm system, chanting “tzeva adom, tzeva adom,” Hebrew for Color Red. The original alarm was “shachar adom” red dawn, but children named Shachar were reportedly being affected socially and the municipality changed it.

“By mimicking the alert system we touch slightly upon this threatening thing in a playful way, while in a safe, protected place with people we trust,” she explains. “That is the introduction.”

The song continues, with children seeking cover as they sing:

Hurry, hurry, hurry, to a protected area
Hurry, Hurry because now it’s a bit dangerous

“Running to our safe areas or ducking under the table, depending on where we are, coincides with the song,” Bar explains. “There is a fact: it is dangerous outside and we must seek shelter.”

My heart is pounding, boom, ba-ba, boom, boom, boom
My body is shaking, doom, da-da doom, doom, doom

“I am giving validation and legitimization to my fear and my body’s reactions,” Bar explains. “It is OK that my heart is pounding, I am even singing about it. It is OK that my body is trembling — I am afraid. Along with the words ‘boom-boom’ and ‘doom-doom,’ the movements of arms crossed and pounding on our chest borrowing from the EMDR method of treating trauma and anxieties. The movements help to break out of it and dissolve the anxiety, improving the mood.”

But I am overcoming
Because I am a little bit different
…The impact…boom — now we can get up

“Again, we remain in the reality,” Bar says. “We hear the impact and we can get back on our feet and begin with the release.”

Our body we shake, shake shake
Our legs we loosen, loosen, loosen
Breathe deep, blow far
Breathe deep, now we can laugh

“We breathe deep and release – a yoga method, even a yoga laughter method when we release the laughter,” Bar says. “Laughter releases endorphins into our brain and into our entire system.”

The song concludes: It all passed and I’m glad it’s over — Yes!!

Bar says the song has spread throughout Sderot and the area kibbutz and moshav schools as well. “The joy that the children display there with the release…Once they learned it they were asking to do it again and again. Suddenly they had a tool to deal with all this, that they could hold on to.”

“The words help you think logically and be a little less afraid,” fourth grader Yiska Yifrach of Kibbutz Sa’ad says.

Illana Madmoni, a second-grade teacher at the Kibbutz said that it used to break her heart to have nothing to say to comfort the children during the silence between the Color Red alarm and the impact. “There was fear in their eyes the moment the alarm went off. The void during that alarm, where everyone was silent and they were just hiding there helpless. Now they are not only less afraid, but the actions and movement empower them and they feel they have overcome the attack and are moving forward.”

How different from the videos of the palestinian children learning to call for the murder of all Jews!!!!

I also applaud this teacher. You cannot just stand by without making making an effort to shield their hearts and minds. Even if for a little while take them figuratively to another place that will occupy their minds and hearts. I am a CHRISTIAN FROM INDIANA AND I STAND WHOLEHEARTEDLY WITH ISRAEL. MAY THE GOD OF THIS UNIVERSE STRECH FORTH HIS ARMS AND PROTECT ISRAEL, MAY HE GIVE SHARON AND THE PRIME MINSTER THE GUIDANCE AND WISDOM TO DEFEND ISRAEL IN THE CAPACITY THEY HOLD. ISRAEL FOREVER. MUCH LOVE

Someone asked what do the children in Gaza sing ,search you tube the last I clip I saw they were singing about killing the Jews!!!!!

The purpose of the “Pillar of Defense” operation was to bring back the security and the calmness to the south population of Israel – it is needless to mention that the IDF achieved their causes as they use to all the time.

Thanks a lot to all the soldiers who participated in the “Pillar of Defense” operation.

Thousands Jews Gather To Pay Respects To Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson Lubavitcher Rebbe

01.07.2014
Tens of thousands of worshipers from around the world headed to Queens Tuesday, to observe the anniversary of the death of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

As CBS 2’s Steve Langford reported, the crowds lined up in intense heat at Ohel at Montefiore Cemetery in Cambria Heights, Queens, to pray and show their respects to the man simply known as “the Rebbe.”

Schneerson was last Grand Rebbe of Lubavitcher Hasidim. He was considered by some to be the most influential rabbi of modern history.

Rabbi Berel Pewzner came all the way from the Cayman Islands for the memorial event.

“This is a very, very important event not only for me personally, but for the entire Chabad movement, and the entire Jewish world at large,” Pewzner said.

The lines to pay tribute to Schneerson stretched out to and along Francis Lewis Boulevard. Families came with their young children.

The occasion, rarely observed up close, revealed the emotional moment when personal printed prayers were read before Schneerson’s gravestone. The sheets of paper on which the prayers were written were then tossed into a huge container before the Rebbe’s headstone.

“Jewish tradition teaches that the day of a righteous person’s passing is an auspicious day for our prayers to be answered,” said Leah Schmetov of Stamford, Connecticut.

When Rabbi Schneerson died in 1994, his passing drew great crowds and sparked an emotion in the streets of Brooklyn. A generation later, the Rebbe may be even more influential.

In fact, a recent biography of the Rebbe became a New York Times bestseller this spring.

Those who came to the cemetery to honor the rebbe’s memory spoke of the example he set.

“Just because he was un-judgmental — he never judged people,” said Lev Rivkin of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. “He taught his students to love other Jews in any way or form, color or no color.”

The memorial event was considered a living, breathing testament to the powerful memory of a historic figure.
