LET’S CONTINUE TO HELP PUERTO RICO

Dear Congregation,

We wanted to share this update with you regarding the continuing needs in Puerto Rico.

Your generous donations of batteries, flashlights, tarps and insect repellent helped provide light, shelter, and relief from mosquitoes which transmit the Zika virus. Because of this outbreak, death came to many of our fellow Americans, especially in the rural areas in Puerto Rico, and many continue to become ill because of the lack of sanitary conditions. By helping to provide these essential items, is truly a way, I believe, to perform a Mitzvah and Tikum Olam, by giving and at the same time, helping to repair a little part of our world and the lives of those who are so devastated by the hurricane.

There is still an extreme need for many items, especially light, because electricity has not yet been restored in some of the areas. Even though the need for insect repellent continues, solar lighting is also a much needed item.

Please plan to come to our March 10th Second Saturday Shabbat and meet the ladies from the Lynnhaven Dive Center, to hear of their personal experiences and sacrifices involved in going to Puerto Rico to personally deliver all the donated items. Their stories of how they traveled to deliver these items,and where they slept in the devastated areas are compelling. You will truly feel that your heartfelt donations helped bring some comfort to those suffering.

Please, let’s go another round in aiding these ladies to deliver supplies to Puerto Rico. Let’s bring the following to the synagogue office by March 9th:

Solar lighting (outdoor path lights will charge and
can be brought inside at night to provide light)

Insect repellent – still a great need
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, and we look forward to sharing this inspiring March 10th Second Saturday Shabbat with you.

David and Marilyn Suskind-Pearline

If you would like to be a shomer, please give the office a call so we can add you to the list. Shomrim sit with a deceased after they have been shrouded and before the funeral so that they are never alone. If you would like more information, please give the office a call at 489-4550.

Ron Hurwitz recently passed away from pancreatic cancer. He was a lifelong member of Temple Israel. He was only 64 years old – a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend.
On April 22nd, there will be a Walk for Pancreatic Cancer and a team has been formed in memory, and in honor, of Ron. Here is the link (https://templeisraelva.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=483892614cb7718af81d3231b&id=67b2ebcf9f&e=0defe36426) – you can donate in his memory and also join the Hurwitz team.
Let’s show our support for this cause and honor Ron at the same time.

This movie documents the legacy of the most recorded jazz standard of all time, “Body & Soul”. From its creation by Jewish composer Johnny Green, the imprint made by Louis Armstrong’s famous performance, on through the recording of the song by the Benny Goodman trio; the film captures the “fraternity and conflict between African Americans and American Jews” that would ultimately lead to the breakdown of race barriers in popular music. Immediately following the film, the Governor’s School for the Performing Arts jazz trio will perform.

Discussion to follow, moderated by WHRO’s Barbara Hamm Lee,
with Pastor David McBride, New Life Church
Rabbi Jeffrey Arnowitz,Congregation Beth El,
Jonathan Zur, President & CEO, Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities
Before being appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States, Thurgood Marshall, a young lawyer for the NAACP, traveled the country defending African Americans wrongly accused of crimes. Based on a true story, the film shows how Marshall enlisted the help of a Jewish attorney, Sam Friedman, in a 1940’s Connecticut trial.
The relationship between Marshall and Friedman and the racism and anti-Semitism they respectively encounter provide important subplots. The movie also provides a wide-angle look at the problems African Americans and Jews faced in America in the 1940s. The anguish and the helplessness American Jews felt over the unfolding Holocaust in Europe also hovers in the background.
While the film depicts difficult and unpleasant things about America’s racist past, it also highlights America’s capacity to change — especially when you contrast where we are today versus where we were then.
