Dear Chaverim,
Each academic year ends with the
Confrmation Service. The Confr-
mation of the 9th grade students
is the highlight and raison dtre
of the service. But what exactly is
Confrmation was begun by the
early leaders of Reform Judaism
in the 19th century. In fact, Re-
form Judaism in its genesis had abolished Bar Mitzvah
because it was for boys only. The early reformers created
Confrmation as a way to bring an egalitarian life-cycle
event into the Jewish cycle of life which would recog-
nize the entrance into adulthood of both young men and
young women.
They saw how the Jewish calendar fts so well into the
academic calendar of the year as observed by most aca-
demic institutions. Simchat Torah, the day on which we
consecrate our new students into Jewish education oc-
curs in the Fall, anytime from late September to the mid-
dle of October. Shavuot, which celebrates our receiving
the Torah at Mount Sinai and falls in the late spring, was
the natural time to mark this new life-cycle event called
Confrmation is not meant to be the end of Jewish edu-
cation but rather an important milestone. I think of Con-
frmation as the time on which our young people confrm
what they had affrmed a couple of years earlier at their
Bar/Bat Mitzvah, i.e. that they are ready to continue to
live a life of Jewish values and rituals; a life which is guid-
ed by the mitzvot, the commandments and the teachings
of the Torah. Just as our ancestors willingly received the
Torah at Mount Sinai, the Confrmands are willingly ac-

cepting this important responsibility to perpetuate Juda-
ism and Jewish living in the future.
So where does Bat Mitzvah come from? The early re-
formers did not think of making Bar Mitzvah egalitarian
and hence they began Confrmation for that reason. Bat
Mitzvah was actually begun in the Conservative move-
ment when Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, a Conservative Rab-
bi who began the Reconstructionist Movement, called
his daughter, Judith, to the Torah at the age of 12 back
in 1922. Bat Mitzvah was gradually adopted frst by the
Conservative Movement in the middle of the 20th cen-
tury, followed by the Reform Movement (which had re-
introduced Bar Mitzvah in the early 1900s) adopting the
practice as well.
Today, Confrmation, marking a milestone in Jewish edu-
cation, is a common practice in Reform, Conservative,
Reconstructionist and even some Orthodox synagogues.
The ritual of Bat Mitzvah for girls is commonly practiced
by all the movements as well. However, what the girl
does for her Bat Mitzvah differs between the Orthodox
and the non-Orthodox movements.
At Temple Emanu-El, the custom of recognizing a mem-
ber who has contributed tirelessly to our congregation as
Volunteer of the Year has been a practice here for over
a couple of decades. I am pleased to announce that this
years Volunteer of the Year is Sharyn Russell. A geri-
atric social worker by profession, Sharyn helped begin
the Temple Emanu-El Chesed Committee several years
ago. Through her commitment to having our congrega-
tion truly be a welcoming one to all, she has guided the
Chesed Committee to be a vital resource for those in
need. Providing rides to those no longer able to drive,
creating and delivering packages of holiday goodies to
the homebound members of Temple Emanu-El and pro-
viding resource materials for lifes challenges through the
display of helpful Lifelight pamphlets inside the Brindis
Entrance on 10th Avenue are just some of the important
activities in which the Chesed Committee has been en-
gaged and by which it has communicated that we are a
caring community.
Please join us for the 72nd Annual Confrmation Service
on Friday, May 17th at 7:00 pm when we wish a hearty
Mazal Tov to the 9 members of the 2013 Confrmation
Class and again on Friday, May 31st at 7:00 pm for our
Annual Membership Recognition Service when we say
Yasher Koach in honoring Sharyn Russell as our Volun-
teer of the Year.

chesed committee announces the launch of Lotsa Helping Hands
As announced during the High Holiday services, there are times when there is a need for help in our Temple com-
Temple Emanu-El through its Chesed Committee is launching a new program called Lotsa Helping Hands that will
enable all of us to lend a helping hand.
Even beyond helping others with serious needs, there are many times to communicate, to ask for and give help in
ordinary community relations. Be part of a group that can occasionally offer help at a special minyan or lend a hand
with a special project.
An important letter from the Rabbi will be coming soon on how to help and how to log into LotsaHelpingHands
through our Temple website. All that we ask is that you sign in (no obligation is incurred on signing in) and become
part of our caring Temple community.
For more information regarding Lotsa Helping Hands, please contact:
Chesed Committee member Fred Feldman, fredfeldman@comcast.net or 603-580-5779. Or Chesed Committee
Chair, Sharyn Russell, SRuss1010@aol.com.
If you have a Chesed need or interesting project with which you want help, please let Rabbi Korinow know at rab-
Our last Hefty event was at the Jew-
ish Film Festival in Concord, New Hamp-
shire. We learned about the Jewish inuences in
the show, The Simpsons. It was a sold out movie and
very fun. Last months Creative Service was based on our
theme, Jews in Entertainment. HEFTY ran a wonderful
Shabbat evening service. I would like to personally thank
all of HEFTY for their participation in the service.
Our next event is a trip to Wasabi Restaurant, a hiba-
chi grill in Salem, NH. We will be meeting at Wasabi at
6:30pm on May 11th. Lastly, our closing event is the
end-of-year barbeque. We traditionally end the year with
a time to cement all of the friendships we have made
over the year. This is also when the 2013-2014 Executive
Board is voted in by the membership. After the barbeque
is the Old Board/New Board meeting. Information and
tips that have been learned are passed on to their re-
spective successors. Hope that most Heftyites are able
to attend the fnal 2 events for the year.

What a wonderful time we had at
the 2013 Spring Basket Auction!
The room looked beautiful, bas-
kets and silent auction items were
set and ready to go and the food
was delicious. I am happy to an-
nounce we raised $2500 for our
family education programs for you
and your children. A special thank
you to our committee co-chairs
Marie Katzen and Lisa Desberg who worked so hard to
make this event a success. Thank you also to our MC
and Auctioneer extraordinaire, Rabbi Korinow who, with
his charmingly persuasive techniques made sure we
raised as much as possible for each basket. Thanks to
Alan Katzen and Eric Tracy for manning the registration
table, selling tickets for the 50-50 rafe (congratulations
to Jackie Berman our rafe winner) and for coordinating
and collecting the money for the items purchased. Thank
you to all who donated and purchased baskets and silent
auction items to beneft the Adeline B. Watnick Religious
School Childrens Fund. Thank you to Emilys Bakery in
Haverhill (Building 19 Plaza) who donated the very deli-
cious cheesecake deserts. When you go to Emilys for
your challah or other baked goods, please let them know
you are from Temple Emanu-El. If you havent been to
Emilys its worth the trip.

Chesed Committee
In todays world, many of us seem to be pressured by
time having enough time for work, for family, for friends,
for ourselves. It has been my greatest pleasure to work
with Chesed volunteers who also fnd time for others
time to bake hamantashen, time to deliver a holiday food
package, time to make a friendly phone call, time to put
a few extra items in your food cart to deliver to some-
one experiencing a medical crisis, or time to help set up
a home for a shiva meal. Most of these mitzvot can be
done in less than an hour.
I do hope that all of you will consider offering to lend
a helping hand when you have the opportunity to sign
up for LotsaHelpingHands over the coming months. Fred
Feldman is making it painless and simple to sign on, and
learn how you too can make a difference to someone by
volunteering even an hour once in a while. The gift is in
the giving.

Scrip Comes to Temple Emanu-El!
Shop with Scrip is an easy way to support Temple Emanu-El. Sim-
ply purchase gift cards (or scrip) for places where you plan to
shop, and use those cards instead of cash or credit. The Temple
purchases the gift cards at a discount and sells them at full face
value; you use them at full face value at your favorite retailers. The
beauty is that you put your regular shopping dollars to work. You
earn money for the Temple without spending a single additional
penny. Keep cards for Shaws, Kohls, Starbucks, Target, CVS,
Dunkin Donuts and many other retailers in your pocket to use just
like cash. Scrip can be used for all your household purchases:
groceries, clothes, household supplies, gasoline, entertainment,
dining, and gifts, to name just a few.
Our frst three orders, though small, were quite successful. As we
increase our participation, this has the potential to be a great fund-
raiser for the Temple.
Now that we have several
orders behind us and are
more familiar with the process, we are moving to a regular sched-
ule. Orders will be collected and submitted on the 10th of each
month (or the next business day if the Temple offce is closed). For
inclusion in our next order, forms and payments should be submit-
ted to the offce no later than May 10, 2013.
Our Scrip vendor is continually adding new retailers. Well use this
space, as well as reminder emails, to let you know when new gift
cards are available.
Order forms and additional information are available on the wall
outside the Temple offce, in the library, and on our website at
www.TempleEmanu-El.org/fundraising. You may also order scrip
online at www.shopwithscrip.com.

Adult Education
While the history of Jewish communities in Europe is well known to many American
Jews, there are many Jewish communities in the world that are little known to us.
The Adult Education Committee invites you to attend a program on The Jews of Cuba.
Laurie Tishler Mindlin, Director of the Merrimack Valley Jewish Federation went on a
Mission to Jewish Cuba along with 25 other Directors of small Jewish Federations from
across the US this past February. She returned flled with enthusiasm after observing
and enjoying the Jewish communitys history and resurgence of Jewish life. They visited
the sites of Jewish Havana and met with a host of committed Jewish leaders who are
reviving and rebuilding Kehillot after 40 years of anti-religion communist rule. They
learned about their challenges and opportunities, what the American Jewish commu-
nity has done to help out, and how we, in the Merrimack Valley, might be a part of their
future. They were changed by this experience and would like to share it with you.
This is a real opportunity to learn
about Jewish history and experi-
ence outside the diaspora that
were familiar with.
As always, a breakfast will be
served at 9:30 am and the pro-
gram will start at 10 am.

BookNotes &
As I announced recently, we in HaSifriyah are in the midst
of plans to upgrade our cataloguing and circulation sys-
tem. our current library software is obsolete and no
longer supported by the developer, thereby placing
our data at risk in the event of a hardware crash. our
hope is to obtain donations of approximately $1500
to allow us to purchase new software and a new
computer. One of my priorities for the new cataloguing
software is to fnd a package that will allow members of
Temple Emanu-El to search our database online. If you
are able to assist us by making a donation for this up-
grade, please contact Nancy in the offce.
Our book group met once again last month to discuss

cago, exploring themes of identity, family and betrayal.

Upcoming Events
Honor your Mother and your Father
The Torah tells us that we must always honor our parents. Our Jewish tradition extends that law to say that we
must honor all our loved ones, and remember them in death. There is no better way to remember and honor the
memory of your departed family members than to have a Memorial Yahrzeit Plaque on the wall of the Temple
You have seen the plaques on the wall of the sanctuary. Each week, the plaques belonging to our beloved
departed, whose Yahrzeit, or anniversary of death, is that week, are lighted. This is to recognize the anniversary
of that person, and to give us an opportunity to lovingly honor the memory of that person, at least once every
year. Also, three times per year, on Yizkor, all the plaques are lit to remember all the loved ones of our Temple.
The plaque contains the name of the deceased, both in English and Hebrew, as well as the date of the persons
death. The plaques are available whenever the sanctuary is open, so someone can always see the name and
remember the loving memories of the departed family member. This is a loving way to remember a parent, spouse
or child.
The cost of a memorial Yahrzeit plaque is a one-time cost of $250. This cost includes the engraving of the
plaque, placing it on the wall, in alphabetical order, and having it lit on Yahrzeit and Yizkor to perpetuity. To
purchase a plaque, contact Nancy or the Rabbi at the Temple, (978) 373-3861.
