College Student Outreach 


As fall approaches, the College Student Outreach Program of Or Chadash is about to swing into full gear. The purpose of this program is to maintain a Jewish connection for our students away from home at preparatory, college or graduate schools. Students will be mailed a treat symbolic for each of the following holidays: Rosh Hashanah, Chanukkah, Purim and Passover. The Rabbi includes a delightful letter reminding students of the significance of the occasion as only he can do. Students tell us each year how much they look forward to these packages and how comforting it is to know that they are still important to our Or Chadash Family. 


We create a new "Student Address List" each year, so all interested parents should send in their child's address for the coming year as soon as possible. You must submit this each year, even if there has not been a change. You will notice that there is space for an email address. The Rabbi promises to try this way of communicating with students.

Don't let your child miss out on the first mailing, which will be later this month!

Rabbi's Message

JMF
Dear Members of Or Chadash,

Ufros Aleinu Sukkat Shelomecha - spread over us the shelter of Your peace. These words are sung each night we gather for worship on Shabbat and holy days. This past Sunday, our Men's Club did an outstanding job building our Sukkah - our temporary shelter for Sukkot - the holiday of our fall harvest which we celebrate this first week of October. As the cool autumn rain falls upon it, our awareness of the fleeting nature of life is heightened. The seasons change, the leaves change, the weather changes, we change. Nothing is permanent, Ecclesiastes reminds us in the reading for this festival holiday. And so, while we are here, we pray that our days may find a bit of shelter from life's storms; that we will find protection with a measure of Shalom, of peace.

Most of us are familiar with the Hebrew word Shalom. Often translated as 'hello', 'goodbye', and 'peace', Shalom has as its core meaning not a salutation or farewell saying. Instead, embedded in the root of the word Shalom is the concept of wholeness. That sense of wholeness is what we hope for our friends when we first greet them and when we say goodbye to them.

This week we extend that hope to a dear friend of Or Chadash. After nearly three years, a new baby and a move from New Jersey to Pennsylvania (nearly an hour away from us), our temple administrator, Jaimee Gold, is moving on to pursue work closer to home and spend more time to be with her husband, Matt, and her two children, Paxton and Declan. Always smiling, Jaimee has been an integral part of OC while she has been here, helping each of us connect with the people, programs, classes, worship services, trips and diverse opportunities that make our congregation the warm and inclusive place that it is. She has tirelessly answered any questions we might have had - sometimes even at crazy hours, is ever-talented with a plethora of software and web applications, and nearly effortlessly juggles a zillion details that make our synagogue work so smoothly. Jaimee's presence here will be greatly missed. As we transition to a new individual, Jaimee will be working to help me, Betsy, and Jeff so OC can continue to operate fully. As part of the Gold family, Jaimee will always have a place here, and it's likely you might see her, Matt and the kids, and her in-laws, Harvey and Kathy, at a future Or Chadash event.

Undoubtedly, we wish Jaimee 'Shalom v'hatzlacha' - Wholeness/Peace and success in her new endeavors. We also say: L'hitraot - we look forward to seeing you again. If you are at OC this Thursday, please stop in the office to wish her well.

May this holiday of Sukkot bring all of us a measure of Shalom.

Rabbi Joseph M. Forman
President's Message
Jeff Berg
Dear members of Or Chadash,

 

Mitzvahs have a virtuous cycle to them. Like that idea of paying-it-forward, when you see a good deed done, you just want to reciprocate. Judaism has awonderful expression for that. Mitzvah goreret mitzvah, one mitzvah leads to another.

Or Chadash is a community bursting with members who love topay-it-forward. With our dedication to supporting our community, reaching our goal of 25,000 mitzvahs should be a piece of cake.

 

I want to thank everyone for the generous donations of food to the local food pantry during our annual Yom Kippur food drive. As you can see, we collected a lot! Over 130 bags worth. I'm very proud of temple's continuous support of our community.

 

Our members dedicate themselves in so many ways to helping our community. I see it from our youngest members to our oldest. If you have not been logging in your good deeds, consider doing so by clicking here. Cumulatively, we have thousands of mitzvahs completed. I think you will find the rewards satisfying and encourage you to continue our great job of paying-it-forward.

 

Now turning inward for a moment, it was wonderful to see so many of you over the last two weeks at the High Holy Days services. I want to again thank all the volunteers - ushers, parking, break fast - for making the days run smoothly. Without volunteers, our organization could not function. Consider volunteering for any number of events. We all could use a hand.

 

As our focus turns from the High Holy Days, we have so much else at OC to look forward to. October is just as busy as September was. Just in the next two weeks, you can have dinner in the sukkah, participate in special programming for Or Chadash parents and their pre-teen and teenage children, and witness the torah being stretched around the sanctuary. Please come out and join your Temple family in one or more of these wonderful events.

 

Shalom,
Jeff Berg
25,000 Mitzvot for Or Chadash's 25 Years

As part of our 25th Anniversary Celebration, we would like to engage together in 25,000 acts of Tikkun Olam & G'milut Chasadim: acts of repairing our world and loving kindness. Each and every one of us can contribute. No act is too small (or too big for that matter)! Please help us realize the goal of reaching 25,000 mitzvot performed this year by helping us tally your mitzvot.

Click here for a list of examples of a mitzvah.

Click here to make your pledge of how many mitzvot you and your family will make in the next year.

Over the course of this year, you can log onto our tally form which will be on the front page of the Or Chadash website and enter the number of mitzvot you would like to add to our total.  There is also a section on the form to tell us more about the mitzvah you perform.  We will use that information to send emails throughout the year to highlight all of the good we are doing throughout our community. 

Click here to enter your mitzvot as you complete them!

Thank you for your help in meeting our goal of 25,000 Mitzvot in celebration of 25 Years at Or Chadash! 
Student Cantor's Message
Kathy Gohr

The High Holy Days are behind us for yet another year.  All of the planning and preparation which spanned most of the Summer was all too soon laid to rest as the last Tekiah G'dolah was sounded on Yom Kippur.  As I sit in a Sukkah on the first evening of Sukkot, I am warmed by the afterglow of these Days of Awe and reflect on how they depart  a lingering effect on our lives.  With Religious School in full swing and another year of B'nei Mitzvahs upon us, we return to the  normal course of events  for  the rest of the year.  But yet, there is a subtle shift that reminds us that we have been in the presence of The Eternal, that by having encountered This Ancient of Days we will never be the same, ever.  As we stood together as a congregation and heard the call of the shofar we were transported back to a time when our ancestors heard that same call, and felt that same hand of God. The deep spiritual bond forged out of this shared experience gives rise to renewed relationships which can carry a community through the whole of the coming year.

 

Such was my experience as I shared my first High Holiday season with the Or Chadash community.  I have served as your Student Cantor for the past year, and was honored to be a part of this year's services.  As we return to our everyday existence I sense that subtle shift in my relationships at the Temple. We look into each other's eyes a little deeper, knowing that we have been on a journey together to a very deep place . There is an unspoken trust which can only result from having  been traveling companions along the path that leads to the gates of heaven.  I see it in the eyes of the children as we make music together.  I see it in the eyes of the parents, teachers and my colleagues as we embark upon the coming year.  It is from this place that I am both honored and eager  to be a part of the Or Chadash family this next  year.

 

Bles-sings,

Kathy Gohr

In appreciation of our 8th/9th/10th grade families

We would like to honor and recognize the families and students (listed below) as they are affirming the importance of Jewish education by enrolling their children in our 8th, 9th and 10th grade program at Or Chadash. Although our students are very mature, they are not the "driving" force in the family. We say todah rabbah, thank you, to the parents of our students, too. During these most holy days of the year, as we take time to look inward, we want to also take a moment to recognize and acknowledge this most treasured partnership. Or Chadash and the greater Jewish community are all the beneficiaries of your on-going commitment to the Jewish education of your children. Yasher Koach - May you go from strength to strength.

Bar Mitzvah - Jake Albert

Jake Albert will become a Bar Mitzvah on October 27, 2012. Jake is an
eighth grade student at Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School. His favorite
subjects are math and science. Jake enjoys participating in karate and will
be testing for his brown belt in the fall. Jake's Torah portion is Lech
Lecha, which focuses on the issue of honesty. Jake's mitzvah projects have included making food for Ship (The Samaritan Homeless Interim Program), which is then distributed to the hungry within the community. Jake also participates in The Color a Smile Program, by submitting art work, which is then distributed to Children's Cancer Hospitals throughout the state. Jake looks forward to celebrating his Bar Mitzvah with his family and friends. 

Bat Mitzvah - Jenna Lifshitz

Jenna Lifshitz, the daughter of Edward and Cheryl Lifshitz, is becoming a Bat Mitzvah on October 13. She is in the eighth grade at Clinton Township Middle School, where her favorite subjects include math and science. Jenna enjoys singing, playing piano, beading, and sewing. Jenna's Mitzvah Project involved sewing quilts for children to be donated to hospitals. Taken from the Book of Genesis, her Torah portion is B'reishit, which includes the story of the Garden of Eden. This story teaches us that you can't go home again, or, even more relevant to her experience, once adolescence is reached, childhood must be left behind. Jenna is looking forward to becoming a Bat Mitzvah and celebrating with her friends and family.

Peninnah Schram The Apple Tree's Discovery

Sunday, November 4 at 11:15 AM at Or Chadash  

Ms. Schram is the Founding Director of the Jewish Storytelling Center. She has told stories in America, Canada, England, and Israel, at synagogues, festivals, conferences, colleges, organizations, camps, and schools. She is also a catalyst, sparking ideas, inspiring others to tell stories, and creating places for other storytellers to gather and share stories. Along with co-author Rachayl Eckstein Davis, Schram has written a children's version of the midrash with a lesson for children and adults alike. A little apple tree in a forest of oaks begs G-d for stars like those glimmering on the branches of the great oak trees beside her. As the seasons pass, she learns to appreciate her own gifts and realizes that it's possible to find a star in each of us.
