August 2020 Av Elul 5780 parksynagogue org 216 371 2244 facebook com parksyn From the President A MESSAGE FROM SUSAN RATNER s I look back on my first year as President of Park Synagogue I reflect on last year s Annual AMeeting The Park community had charted a path toward the future and the roadmap was clear This year s Annual Meeting seemed far into the future And then the future happened The worldwide pandemic and all its personal and community consequences have been experienced individually and communally and every single one of us will remember 2020 and how all our personal and group plans changed on a dime But one of the unexpected consequences of this most difficult time is that I am both witness and participant in our vibrant Park Synagogue community The resilience creativity and compassion displayed at Park have been as much hallmarks of this unexpected time as has the worry about illness and financial future from our very personal Zoom services our Zoom connections at times of joy and sorrow to our wonderful and fun Park telethon I have gotten to know many of you only virtually on a screen or through email yet I feel we are getting to know each other in a meaningful way And while some details of the future remain uncertain our commitment to the future of Park has been unwavering thanks to the support of all of you Being apart has repeatedly shown me how together we are and we are going to move forward together as one community So let me catch you up on where our plans are for the transformation of Park East and our plans for Cleveland Heights At our Annual Meeting Rabbi Skoff announced our exciting lead gift for our campaign We have received a transformative ten million dollar gift and we have renamed our new home in Pepper Pike Announcing Park Synagogue The Sydell and Arnold Miller Campus Thanks to the generosity of the incredible Miller family we can move forward optimistically toward our goal During this quiet phase of our campaign we have matched this gift and have raised upwards of 22 million dollars toward ensuring the future of The Sydell and Arnold Miller campus in Pepper Pike and increasing our endowment to support our programs and congregational needs Two campuses remain unsustainable financially and so we continue to move toward a solution in Cleveland Heights Bellefaire JCB is exploring our campus in order to create an intentional community a kind of Chautauqua for adults on the autism spectrum with the sanctuary as a centerpiece a sanctuary that we could continue to use the few days a year we need If this is financially sustainable for Bellefaire it would be a true community collaboration and we will know in a few months if this is viable for them If not other options will be considered The architects have presented their first steps in creating the kind of spaces we need in order to accommodate the congregation at Park East We have given them all of your feedback so that they can incorporate whatever is feasible into their thinking subject of course to the amount of money actually raised Our full Board has voiced their commitment to contribute to the campaign and some of you have already stepped forward Thank you for helping us to build the future This is a year none of us expected and no road is ever straight But our clergy our staff and all of you are the community that endures We ve learned so much about resilience support and ironically this most difficult time has only underscored Park s spiritual intellectual and emotional heart Please keep sharing your thoughts and ideas with me susratner gmail com and know how privileged I feel to be here with all of you at this extraordinary moment in time Susan Ratner Park Synagogue President susratner gmail com

Family Education and Wolf Religious School What is Jewish About Pizza Well one could say that there is story about a 14th century Hebrew scholar from Italy who translated Maimonides use of the word hararah a type of flatbread in the Mishneh Torah with four simple Hebrew letters peh yud tzadi heh or pizza arguably the very first time the word was ever used in any language In all seriousness we wanted to bring some fun Jewish learning to our kids at Park so we delivered to each PSWRS household a Kit to Grow A Pizza We asked our families to explore the contents of the kit to find fun ways to partner with God The kit included Grow A Pizza seeds and soil so that you can be partners with God Pizza Dough Mix so that you will be able to make that pizza after all your toppings grow A fingertip light so that you can add light to a summer s night and perhaps join the fireflies in your yard Plant a Kiss grades Littles 2 so that you can see how one small act of love blooms into something bigger and more dazzling than can be imagined It s an epic journey about life kindness and giving A Food Brachot card so that you can master the Brachot said before eating bread fruit and your homemade pizza A grape seal strawberry fox or blueberry triceratops so that you can delight your sense of smell and remember to love all creatures A mask so that we can continue to be safe this summer So many of my friends and family are creating gardens this summer As you grow your family garden you should ask yourself how do we show our partnership with God The word brit literally means covenant God blessed the Jewish people with a covenant an agreement that pledges both the Jewish people and God work together toward the perfection of the world and full human dignity in every way for as long as it takes Being partners with God means that we are always involved in taking care of the world around us as well as the people around us The Talmud tells us that while we are not required to complete the task we are required to keep it as the best as we can Teri Rube Hochberg D PED Director of Education PSWRS 2020 21 REGISTRATION COVID PLAN Although this may be an unprecedented time our wish for a generation of Jewish kids remains the same We envision that all of our children will be given the opportunity to develop a strong Jewish identity with knowledge of Bible Hebrew and mitzvot with ties to our synagogue The beginning of this year will not look that much different from other years when the Fall holidays arrive in September and October and on the weekends And although our approach to Religious School this year remains flexible through the holidays the children teens will have the opportunity to attend virtually and or attend some Bible and Holiday classes in person in synagogue This is our plan through Simchat Torah During the fall holidays we will reassess Today in July it is too early to predict what October will bring Our hope of course is to transition to everyone in the building but sadly it is just too soon to tell A hybrid school costs money for teachers materials PPEs to name just some of the costs PSWRS school fees have always been best priced No fees are being raised No child is turned away because of the fees If you have a question please contact Teri teri parksyn org Stay safe and look for further updates on our website https www parksynagogue org wolf religious school or call Teri at 216 371 2244 ext 125 August 2020 March 2018 Page 7 www parksynagogue org
