September 2023 CEI Bulletin
Congregation Emanu-El Israel
222 North Main Street, Greensburg, PA. 15601
Elul – Tishrei 5783/5784
The Mission of Congregation Emanu-El Israel is: To support Judaism and the welfare of our community.
From the desk of Rabbi Leonard Sarko
Over the next few weeks we will observe the High Holy Days in the month of Tishrei in the Jewish calendar. These holidays are about the concepts of renewal, forgiveness, freedom and joy.
The origins and reasons for the High Holy Days are found in the Bible and are a reflection of the agricultural and religious culture that produced it. The millennia of Jewish tradition between the Bible and the present informs our celebrations as well, in ways that go beyond the biblical texts.
Rosh Hashanah is believed to mark the date of the creation of the world, and it begins the “Days of Awe”, a 10-day period culminating in Yom Kippur.
The first holiday, Rosh Hashanah, celebrates renewal. It involves the blowing of the shofar horn, itself connected to the ram sacrificed instead of Abraham’s son. Important activities include hearing the shofar. There is also a custom to eat apple slices with honey. The apple represents hopes for fruitfulness and the honey symbolizing the desire for a sweet year.
The biblical description of Yom Kippur involved a series of sacrifices and rituals designed to remove sin from the people. For example, a goat was chosen to bear the sins of the Israelites and was sent off to the wilderness, carrying the sins away. The term “scapegoat” in English derives from this act.
There are many sounds we associate with the High Holidays. Perhaps the best known is the sounding of the Shofar, the ram’s horn. The commandment, interestingly, is not to sound the Shofar, but to hear it. Thus, the rabbis argued that a Jew passing by a synagogue on Rosh Hashana who stops and listens to the Shofar is fulfilling the mitzvah.
We need to ask the question, why does Rosh Hashanah precede Yom Kippur? No sooner do we mark the New Year than we begin repenting for our sins. Surely the logical sequence would be the reverse: we should repent and then usher in the New Year with a clean slate.
Rosh Hashanah is a day we celebrate the world. We appreciate the beauty, the wonder and the miracle of life. That appreciation is critical; for only when we understand how splendid, yet fragile, is this world, can we begin to repent for having damaged or neglected it. All tikkun, all reparation, begins in appreciation. We heal relationships because we understand their value. We seek to restore the imbalances in the natural world because it dazzles our eyes. Yom Kippur is the outcome of our Rosh Hashanah vision: surrounded by possibility. We need to heal what we have hurt. Seeing the cracks in creation, we acknowledge our obligation to fill them. First comes gratitude, then regret, then restoration.
May this coming year be one that is sweet, fulfilling, healthy and full of love for all.
Shana Tova, Rabbi Lenny Sarko
PRESIDENT: Irene C. Rothschild
The relaxing days of a warm summer are almost over and the High Holy Day season is here. I am hoping to see most of you at services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. I know that Rabbi Lenny has been working hard preparing for these special days. The Garden Committee lead by Robin Mickey has also been working hard on cleaning up the grounds in the front of the building and the front of the building itself will be cleaned and some pointing will be done. The goal is for everyone and everything to be warm and welcoming!
You will not be able to see it, but protective film has been installed on all of the downstairs windows, adding another layer of protection for everyone inside the building. Shortly after the High Holy Days, two sets of Exit only doors will be added to the front entrance and at the bottom of the stairs. When they are closed, during services for example or during the day when only staff is in the building, people can exit them, but no one can enter them. The Board of Directors and the Security Committee are doing as much as possible to keep everyone in the building as safe as possible.
Nine people participated in the CPR/AED training last month and Bea has compiled a list of all those who are currently certified. I am grateful for all of those folks who volunteered to participate! Chris DeMarco is working on organizing a ‘Stop the Bleed’ class at Mutual Aid, so anyone who is available during the day and interested should contact Chris or the office. There is no cost for this training, as we have a generous donor who is covering the cost. Again, I am so grateful for the generosity of those who volunteered to cover the cost of both of these training courses!
The High Holy Day Appeal letter has been mailed and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I hope that you are as generous as possible and I thank you in advance!
The Board of Directors and all of the committees will continue the smooth operation of the Congregation and are all looking forward to another productive year at CEI! Rabbi Lenny, Bea and Jeff continue to do a terrific job and will carry all of us into the year 5784. Let’s all keep working toward another good, healthy and productive year!
L’Shana Tova! Irene

SISTERHOOD NOTES by Terri Katzman, President
“Opening Dinner”, in the form of an outdoor picnic, took place on August 10th at the home of Marion Slone. The turnout, the food, and the weather were great. I offer many thanks to Marion for the fantastic job of making it all (well, not the weather) take place. I also offer thanks to her husband Bob and grandson Harry for all of their help. Shirley Shpargel’s daughter Rebecca was a guest and wonderful help for the evening.
Before anyone could have dessert, we had a productive meeting. Plans for the coming year were discussed. Our first outing will take place on Sunday, October 15 when we will meet at Wicks & Wax Studio to make our own candle.
The exciting part of the evening was when we enthusiastically voted to become involved in purchasing and bagging weekend food bags for children in need in the Westpoint Elementary School. The program entitled Food 2 Go 4 Kids was established a few years ago, and many area churches are involved. Our involvement will be to provide bags just three times during the school year.
Before all of the above takes place, Sisterhood will be busy in the kitchen where we will prepare goodies for Slichot, Rosh Hashana, and Break the Fast.
The New Year is off to a great start and I look forward to the involvement of all Sisterhood members.
With my wishes for a sweet year for all,
Terri Katzman, Sisterhood President

Once We Were Home by Jennifer Rosner is the author’s second novel, in which she intertwines three narratives about displaced children and the moral choices involved in their placement after World War II. Desperate Jewish parents sometimes made the horrific sacrifice of sending their children away to places or people they believed offered safety. After the war, surviving relatives searched for missing children; often removing them from their new homes was traumatic for the children when they no longer had memory of their original family. Rosner follows 3-year-old Daniel and 7-year-old Mira whose parents smuggle them out of a Polish ghetto to a Polish farm couple for safekeeping. The Dabrowskis bravely protected the children with the new names of Ana and Oskar. At the end of the war the children are kidnaped by a Jewish Zionist group with the hope of sending the children to a kibbutz in Palestine.
Seven-year-old Roger, a Jewish boy, is raised Catholic in a French convent near Marseille. When his paternal aunt came to reclaim him, his rescuers refuse to turn him over, The Catholic Church claimed that they were saving his soul so with a monk Roger traveled to Spain to escape the courts. Roger was always questioning everything, and he became confused and conflicted about escaping the law. Under legal pressure, Roger eventually ended up with his family in Israel.
Rosner jumps to 1968, and introduces Renata, an Oxford educated archeologist who is in Israel on a dig. Renata was raised in England by a German mother. Her mother dies, leaving Renata with unanswered questions about her past. In Rosner’s previous novel, The Yellow Bird Sings, the daughter who was hidden in a convent appears as a famous violinist. The narratives of these characters over decades may seem disconnected, before they intersect, familiar objects, a dreidel, nesting dolls, and carved chess pieces are inserted into the stories.
In Once We Were Home, each of the characters must deal with secrets and the often consequences of their past. Rosner asks: What does it mean to belong someplace, or with someone? What makes a family? What defines a home? How do biology, memory, nurture and obligation shape a personal identity? Once We Were Home gives readers much to think about. This title may be checked out from Westmoreland Library Network.

Starting Times and Decorum:
All services will start promptly at the designated time. Members and guests are encouraged to arrive early and to take seats before the start of the services. For security purposes, entrance to the building will only be available through the front door. New Members, Students and non-member attendees must have their name on the Guest List to be admitted by an usher.
If you arrive after a service has started, we request that you enter as unobtrusively as possible through the door at the rear of the sanctuary. Wait quietly at the back of the sanctuary and enter quickly at an appropriate pause in the service. DO NOT ENTER when the leader is in the midst of a prayer or reading, when the Congregation is in responsive prayer or standing in silent devotion or when the ark is open. Talking and conversations in the sanctuary are discouraged and must always be minimized during services. Please turn off all cell phones, beepers, watch alarms or any item that distracts those around you from the service. There should be no texting or electronic games during services.
The Congregation encourages the attendance and participation of children at all services; however, it is the parents’ responsibility to control the actions and behavior of children to maintain the decorum and solemnity of the services. If this is not possible, the child should be escorted out of the sanctuary as quickly and quietly as possible.
Members and guests are encouraged to remain in the sanctuary until the end of the service. If it is necessary to leave before the end, it should be done at an appropriate break in the service and with the same considerations as a late entry. Re-enter at the back of the sanctuary.
