Rabbi's Message

Rabbi Salomon Gruenwald, Associate Rabbi:
720-390-4439 rabbgi@HEAdenver.org

Life is Like a Sukkah

We do some intense spiritual work between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. And the question is: how do we wake up on the day after Yom Kippur?  How do we make the transition back into normal life? Are we supposed to return back to life as it had been before?  Yom Kippur bids us to transform our lives. But change is difficult and the task can be daunting, even paralyzing. There is so much work to do … where do we start? Perhaps Sukkot is the answer to these questions. Sukkot teaches us a number of lessons about how to face the task and how to do it with joy and not dread. 

Beyond its historical and agricultural connections, Sukkot is supposed to serve as a reminder of our 40-year journey through the wilderness. In our long passage from Egypt to the land of Israel, we lived in temporary shelters. We have Pesach for the event of liberation, Shavuot for the receiving of the Torah. It is interesting that we don’t have a holiday to commemorate our entering into the land of Israel, but we do have a holiday to commemorate the long difficult trek through the Sinai desert. Perhaps herein lies the wisdom of Sukkot. Perhaps the journey is more important than arriving.    

We wake up on the day after Yom Kippur with an enormous task ahead of us—to live life better than we did the year before. The sukkah has many symbolic and historical meanings, but perhaps it is also a complex metaphor for how to live our lives. Consider a few of the sukkah’s metaphors: 

  • Like the sukkah, life is temporary. 
  • Like the sukkah, life is partially limited by the materials we have at hand and the effort we put into building it. 
  • Like the sukkah, there is never enough time or resources to make it just the way you imagined it would be. 
  • Like the sukkah, life is better when we share it with others. 
  • Like the sukkah, life has its aspects of stability and strength but it can also be shaky and subject to occasional collapses.   
  • Like the sukkah, our life is not perfect; it is always in the process of improving. Every year we have a chance to add new things, get rid of some old things, and change what needs to be changed. 
  • Like the sukkah, the life we build shelters us from the vicissitudes of the world but it is also porous enough to allow us to experience our surroundings.  
  • Like the sukkah, our life changes from year-to-year but parts of it follow us wherever we go.   
  • Like the sukkah, life brings with it the unexpected nuisances, but embracing joy and camaraderie makes it all worthwhile. 

The wisdom of our tradition is to recognize and elevate the journey and not the arrival. The wisdom and power of the sukkah is the recognition that the greatest gift we have is the present moment. The great gift of life is the possibility of creating something meaningful right now.  And that if we don’t live our lives with joy, then we risk being miserable.   

So when you’re sitting in the sukkah this year, be sure to look up at the sky, feel the warmth of the sun and the cool of the wind, welcome guests in, and enjoy the journey.

Board Report

Jill Levy, HEA Board Vice President of Community: board@HEAdenver.org

One of the core values in a community is hesed which means loving-kindness, charity or mercy.

We read in Bereishit 18 that Abraham showed hesed to the angels, disguised as strangers, who visited him at his tent. He practiced loving-kindness to strangers, in spite of the pain from his brit milah, teaching us what a fundamental value it is. 
 
Hesed is part of Jewish life and there are many ways to perform hesed in our community. This is not just giving money, but giving of your time such as visiting the sick, bikur cholim, making meals for those in need, and signing up to call senior members on erev Shabbat so they know they are being thought about.

Hesed has always been important to me. Some years ago, I was on the Hesed Committee and when the position of Hesed chair became available and I was asked to take it on, I must admit it gave me pause for a day or two. I recognized the need to help those in our community and agreed to take it on. 

My motivation for this is so much gratitude to the men and women who have helped my parents when they lived in Lichfield, UK. My mom now lives with my brother and his family in Stafford, UK, and amazing men and women from her community help her there. Words are not enough to express my thanks; I need to do what I can here to make a difference in the lives of our members. 

The Sisterhood board began supporting the Hesed Committee by starting cooking sessions in the HEA kitchen. We have made soups, chicken and roast potatoes, challah, salmon and mixed vegetables, lasagna, and banana bread. We freeze these so we have meals ready to go when a request comes in with little or no notice or when we are unable to fill a meal train. We are so grateful to the volunteers who give so generously of their time, as well as those who make donations to the Hesed Fund, which enables us to do this.

Some Hesed Committee appreciation messages we have received:

“Many thanks to all those who brought me meals. I had just returned home from a medical rehabilitation facility after having extensive back surgery. I live alone, so the meals allowed me to eat well during my recovery at home.” - Ed Silver

“I want to express my sincere appreciation to the Hesed Committee. It has been such a great help to have meals delivered while we dealt with multiple health issues. We felt both nourished and cared for. Todah rabah!” - Leah Peer

“The amazing cooks of the Hesed Committee provided me and my girls 
delicious meals while I recovered from surgery. On my follow-up appointment with the surgeon, he marveled at how quickly I was recuperating. The secret to my speedy recovery was healthy, hearty meals, made with love.” -  James McKeon

Let the office know if there is someone in the community who needs visits, meals or calls and the Hesed committee will make sure they are taken care of. 

Become involved in the Hesed Committee and let us know which area you would like to become a part of. We are especially in need of volunteer cooks! This is something that is very easy to do. If you are not able to make food on days requested, freeze extra portions the next time you are making a meal for your family, and sign up when there is a meal train. There are requests for all kinds of meals for different dietary needs. The more volunteers we have, the less pressure there is on our core volunteers.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have given so generously of their time and cooking talents to make a difference in our community. Our heroes are the dedicated core of volunteers in the HEA who always step up when the need arises. 

Anyone interested in joining the Hesed Committee please contact me at jlevy@hillsoft.com or 720-771-0434.

High Holidays

High Holiday Security at the HEA
 As most of you know, over the past year the congregation has made both physical upgrades and security procedure enhancements. With Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur approaching, we want to share some information with you. While additional security has been hired for the holidays, a key component of security is to better and more accurately restrict admittance to those who should be with us. To accomplish this, all adults will be required to show their High Holiday ticket as they enter the main building, the Goldberger Youth Center, and Bethany Lutheran Church. 

By having your ticket with you, you will expedite your entry.

Those members who forget their ticket will need to join a line to find their name(s) on our membership roster. Proof of identity may be requested. Those who have not made prior arrangements for tickets will have to produce a driver's license that will be copied for security purposes. 

Tickets will be provided as follows:
1) All adult members-in-good standing will receive a ticket by mail. Children from newborn through 12th grade will not need a ticket.
2) Members' children who are in college or up through 23 years old will be provided tickets free of charge. However, please contact the office to request these tickets.
3) Members may request tickets for their adult children 
24-30 years old. These tickets will be available for $118 each. They will be good for both holidays.
4) Members' children 31-35 should contact Neal Price about a special young adult membership. Neal may be reached at 720-390-4424.
5) Out-of-town guests of members can receive tickets in one of the following ways:
Members of an out-of-town congregation can ask their home synagogue to email a request for reciprocal High Holiday tickets to nprice@HEAdenver.org Members may purchase tickets for their unaffiliated out-of-town visitors for $150 per holiday (Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur) or $300 for both holidays.

As always, we hope for a very meaningful and enjoyable High Holiday season and ask for your cooperation and understanding of our new protocol. If you have any questions, please contact Neal Price at nprice@HEAdenver.org or 720-390-4424.

High Holiday Hazzan

New CEO/Executive Director 

We feel fortunate to welcome Laura Intfen to the HEA as our next HEA CEO/Executive Director. Laura has extensive experience in Relational Judaism, a critical skill we are working to bring to life in our community. Laura has been leading the synagogue where she currently works in Overland Park, Kansas in this way for the last 14 years and will be able to use her experience to grow, nurture, fundraise and lead our congregation, which is what we were looking for in this newly titled role. Not only was the search committee incredibly impressed with Laura in her interviews, but Laura's references were absolutely glowing regarding her high relational skills with the staff whom she has mentored and the members of her current congregation. We believe that Laura, in partnership with the rabbis, staff, and Board, will set us on course to fulfill our potential for the future. 

We anticipate that Laura will begin her new role on November 1, 2019, providing overlap with Neal Price for a full month. She is excited about this new opportunity and looks forward to joining our community with her husband Tim. We know you will join us in welcoming Laura and wishing her well. She is fortunate to carry forward the incredible work and stewardship of Neal who we look forward to honoring on the evening of Sunday, February 9, 2020.

If you would like to join the planning committee for Neal’s party, please contact Laurie Morris at (303) 475-3852 or laurmorris@comcast.net. If you would like to be a sponsor for the event, please contact Barbara Carroll at (720) 810-6737 or barbara@barbaradcarroll.com.

HEA Security Update

As all are aware, over the past year most religious institutions have increased their security. At the HEA, members and guests have seen upgrades in both the physical environment as well as in procedures. 

Last spring, Neal Price and Jody Meyer applied for a Homeland Security Grant to continue “hardening” the facility and provide additional security equipment. We are happy to report that the HEA was one of 11 Colorado institutions (out of 24 applicants) that will be receiving a grant. We are also very happy to report that the HEA will receive the full amount requested.

At this time, we would like to publically thank three individuals who have devoted a tremendous amount of time to help enhance the security of the HEA. Mark Samuelson has organized, staffed and arranged for training of our Shabbat and holiday greeters/security team.  Each week, he organizes the Shabbat team—a tremendously important duty.

Jeff Cohn has provided a number of security training sessions for both our volunteers and staff. Jeff recently retired after 40 years in law enforcement. Prior to his retirement, he was Deputy Chief of Police for the University of Colorado Denver campuses – the Anschutz Medical Campus and CU downtown Denver Campus. 

A thank you also goes to our Director of Operations Jody Meyer for overseeing the upgrades to the facility and organizing volunteer and staff training. Her knowledge of security and attention to details have made all of us attending services, classes and activities safer.

Finally, a thank you is due to the men and women who volunteer to not only welcome people to the HEA but serve as our first “eyes and ears” as people approach our facility. Your dedication is truly appreciated.

HEA Family Connection

Shira Teed, Engagement Director : 720-390-4426, shira@HEAdenver.org

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, and with a new year comes new things. HEA is excited to be making changes with our members in mind. Over the coming months, you will be seeing communication coming about our new model of engaging community through meaningful Judaism focused on 
relationships. We will be building relationships with each other and our community. As we begin the process of listening to our community to help build a Jewish home together, we will continue much of the holiday programming that you have come to enjoy and count on. 

We are expanding and re-organizing! A new Family Life Coordinator will soon be hired who will be responsible for the connections made with and between families with young children. Additionally, another role will be created. This person will be working with families and adults who fall outside of the young family demographic. Together with the Director of Engagement, Shira Teed, this team will work hard to make HEA the vibrant Jewish community, full of deep connection and where each person finds their place.  

With that in mind, we invite you to participate in our High Holiday programming that we will be providing this year to our families with children. Here is a run-down of the family-friendly events for the upcoming holiday season:

Monday, September 30, 9:00-10:00 a.m.

HEA Preschool

Rebecca Paradis, Preschool Director, 303-758-1462, Rparadis@HEAdenver.org

As we celebrate the High Holidays with our young students, we explore all the new things in our lives each year.  For young children who may not recall the previous Rosh Hashanah, a lot has changed in one year. They have new skills, new classrooms, new teachers, and new friends.

The themes of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, renewal, forgiveness, and self-improvement, are abstract concepts for children. Sukkot is a very different holiday; Sukkot is an experience.  Sukkot is fun and exciting! We build a structure, spend more time outside, create beautiful decorations, and of course eat yummy fall harvest foods. 

So often we hear about picky eaters in the preschool years. One of the easiest ways to convince your kids to try something new and healthy is to involve them in preparing a new dish to share with family and friends. Cooking with young children also provides them the opportunity to build new skills. Looking at a cookbook or recipe increases language development and reading or pre-reading skills. Cookbooks for children often include photos and visual recipes. Measuring and combining ingredients builds math and science knowledge. Completing a recipe fosters focus and attention and creates meaningful family traditions.  Be sure to follow my mom’s advice and clean as you go. Cooking is messy.

Here’s a new healthy recipe to try at home with some fall foods. Extra credit to anyone who brings me some!

Fall Harvest Salad with Whole Wheat Croutons and Honey Mustard Dressing
 
Salad 
one head Romaine lettuce, torn 
two cups of torn green cabbage
a handful or two of fresh spinach leaves
one apple, diced
one zucchini, diced
Place everything in a large bowl.
Just before serving, add whole wheat croutons and honey 
mustard dressing and toss gently.
Whole Wheat Croutons
Use 3 or 4 slices of whole wheat bread and follow these simple directions:
Tear bread into small pieces.
Toast in the skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown.
Toss with a little vegetable or olive oil, then sprinkle with salt 
and pepper.
Honey Mustard Dressing
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup honey
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup of vegetable oil
1.    Measure EVERYTHING into a bottle or jar with a secure lid.
2.    Place the lid on tight and shake until well mixed.

HEA Religious School

Sherry Grinsteiner, Director of Education, 303-758-7100, Sherry@HEAdenver.org

We are happy to welcome Jacob Chatinover as our new B’nai Mitzvah Program Director. Jacob comes to us from Camp Ramah. His extensive experience with kids of all ages and his love and knowledge of Judaism is a tremendous asset to our team.
