Summer at Stanton: Come to Shul!

During these summer Shabbatot when many of our members and regulars are on vacation, we appeal to all who are here in the city to join us. Your attendance is especially important on Friday nights for Kabbalat Shabbat and for Mincha and Seudat Shlishit on Saturday evening. Mordecai Silver, our long-time and expert baal koreh, will deliver the drasha this Shabbat morning.

Seudah Shelishit and Learning with Mordecai Silver

Join us for Seudah Shelishit and learning with Mordecai Silver this Shabbat, after mincha, which begins at 7:15pm. Mordecai will be presenting Avot d'Rabbi Natan at Seudah Shelishit each week up until the Shabbat before Rosh Hashana. 

 

Avot d'Rabbi Natan is a commentary on the better-known Pirkei Avot, and consists largely of maxims that cover the proper approach to Torah study, common human courtesy, and other life advice. 

Summer Films: The World of Sholom Aleichem on August 28th, 7:00 pm

Popcorn and soft drinks will be served. Admission is $10.

 

All screenings are at 7:00 pm on Wednesday nights.

 

Still to come: The Goldbergs on September 4...

Help Stanton Go Green

As a community we are beginning to be more mindful of ecological concerns. For a long time we have been attentive to recycling our waste materials.  Now we are beginning the battle of removing plastic utensils from our kitchen and kiddushim.

 

A set of stainless steel silverware has been purchased, toyveled, [ritually prepared], and is ready for use.  In the coming weeks we will replace plastic cups with dish washable alternatives.  Please see Jeff Katz or Jill Slater to discuss these improvements.

Fundraiser for Mazalot Restoration: LES Jewish Conservancy and Stanton

Last May, as part of LES History Month, the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy launched a Facebook fundraiser and raised one thousand dollars towards the restoration of the Stanton Street Shul's Mazalot.

 

We are thankful to David Wachs, Lori Weissman, and Karen Blatt for their efforts in initiating this successful fundraiser. The Shul is appreciative of its many friends who donated so generously to help in the restoration. It is very encouraging that those beyond our congregation are so invested in the renewal and restoration of our 106 year-old building and community.
 
The following narrative appeared in the Facebook announcement by the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy and generated such an enthusiastic response.
 

"The pictorial display of Mazalot, Jewish East European folk art renderings of signs of the zodiac, on the walls and ceilings of synagogues, were once prevalent throughout Lower East Side Shuls. At the Stanton Street Shul, Bnai Jacob Anschei Brzezan, a congregation with roots in Brzezan, Galicia, the Mazalot paintings have deteriorated over the years and are in need of urgent conservation.

 

The Stanton Street Shul, established in 1913, is an active Shul that has undergone a major renovation in the past two years. Several of the twelve Mazalot have been restored by our resident artists and dedicated in the name of their sponsors. These rare and precious zodiac paintings represent an almost two thousand year old synagogue tradition that has endured since the Roman era.

The deterioration and possible disappearance of the Stanton Street Mazalot would be like having a page torn out of a history book of the immigrant story. It’s one thing to hear about our families who emigrated from Eastern Europe; it’s quite another to see how they surrounded their shul walls with religious art.

 

The Shul is blessed with resident artists who will restore the remaining Mazalot this summer. Each original Mazal has been photographed and will be meticulously conserved. Evidence of their professional restorations is on view. Please come by for "All are welcome at the Stanton Street Shul, and all will feel welcome."

 

Several Mazalot remain to be sponsored and restored. If you have roots on the Lower East or wish to commemorate a relative or friend, the sponsorship of a Mazal would be a fitting gesture. Please contact Jeff Katz at the Shul."

Update from the Rabbinic Search Committee

After casting a wide net and conducting an exhaustive search, we have not hired a rabbi.  
 
Two candidates met with the congregation on two separate Shabbatot. The turnout for the Friday night dinners, services on Shabbat, and Q&A sessions with the candidates was very impressive.  The enthusiasm displayed by the congregation demonstrated our community’s strong interest in the process; in meeting the candidates, and in hearing what they had to say. In the end the survey responses many of you submitted strongly influenced our decision making. 
  
We hope you agree that the search process had integrity and direction. We believe we left no stone unturned considering that the search began very late in the season.  Rabbinic graduates receive smicha in the late spring and generally find employment for the coming year in the late winter or early spring. Our late start set us at a disadvantage.  
 
The Ritual Committee will be announcing plans for the High Holidays shortly. We are confident that our community will be properly served during this time of transition. As our search continues, we appreciate your patience and input. 

 

We look forward to the eventual positive outcome for our beloved shul. 

Sponsor a Kiddush

Sponsoring a kiddush is a great way to celebrate milestones, commemorate a yahrzeit, or show your appreciation for someone in your life. It's about coming together with your community. And with kugel.

Halachot of Tisha B'Av This Year

This year, Tisha B'Av falls on Shabbat; therefore, the fast day is observed on Sunday (10th of Av), which begins motzei Shabbat  (Saturday evening). Unlike other years, one is permitted and encouraged to have a large seuda shlishit (third Shabbat meal) on Shabbat afternoon before the fast begins (Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 552:10). It can be either meat or dairy. One should daven mincha before the meal. (We will be davening Mincha at 1:35 pm). 

 

One must be careful to conclude all eating and drinking before sunset, which takes place this Saturday at 8:00 pm. Beginning at that time, washing, eating and drinking are prohibited. However, we sit on chairs of regular height and wear normal footwear until nightfall.

After nightfall at 8:46 pm, one should recite the blessing: "Baruch Hamavdil bein Kodesh le-Chol" which allows one to engage in melakhah (work). One then takes off leather shoes and puts on canvas or rubber footwear. There is no regular havdalah on Saturday evening (havdalah over wine is postponed until after the fast.) We do however recite the blessing over the candle ("Borei Meorei Haesh") after Shabbat is over. This blessing is not contingent upon the blessing over the wine; it is an expression of thanks for the creation of fire, which according to a midrash was revealed to humanity on Shabbat's conclusion (SA OC 556). We will say this bracha publicly at shul after maariv.

Maariv at Stanton will begin at 9:20 pm followed by the reading of Megilat Eichah and recitation of the evening kinot, singing slow songs of dveikut - yearning for the presence of God - and songs about Jerusalem. All are encouraged to participate.

Please join us on Sunday morning at 9:00 am for Shacharit and Kinot at shul. We do not put on tefilin or a talit until mincha of Tisha B'Av (SA OC 555:1).

The fast ends at 8:32 pm. At the close of the fast, before eating and drinking, havdalah must be recited over grape juice or wine. Two blessings are recited: "HaGafen" and "HaMavdil"; we do not bless, however, over the spices and the candle. This year, since the fast is observed on the 10th of Av, the restrictions of the nine days are lifted on Sunday night. However, meat and wine are prohibited until Monday morning (SA OC 558:1).
 
"Anyone who mourns for Jerusalem merits to share in her joy" (Babylonian Talmud Taanit 30A).

Mazalot Restored

Three mazalot [Zodiac paintings] and wainscoting below have now been restored by Stanton's internal crew of artists: David Wander, Dory and Billy Bergman. The three mazalot include Chodesh Adar, Nisan and Iyar.

 

Spend some time examining the rich detail, the vibrant colors, and hopefully you will appreciate that eight of the twelve mazalot have been masterfully restored within the last two years. The eight have been generously sponsored by Stanton donors. The remaining four are still available to individuals, families or groups for sponsorship. If you are interested speak with Jeff Katz.

Join us for a meaningful and moving program, led by Rabbi Bodner, on Saturday night, August 10, beginning with Ma'ariv at 9:20 pm, followed by a reading of the Book of Eichah and communal singing of Kinot (Elegies) downstairs in the beit midrash. All are welcome.

Fast Day of Shivah Asar (Seventeenth) B'Tammuz: Sunday, July 21

The Seventeenth of Tammuz is a public fast day to commemorate the first breach of Jerusalem's walls in the First and Second Temples. It is a daytime fast in which we refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset. This year it falls on Sunday, July 21, from 4:01am to 9:10pm. It is also the beginning of the mourning period known as the Three Weeks, which culminate in another fast day, Tisha b'Av (9th of Av).

 

There are five tragedies associated with the day:

 

1. In the Wilderness, Moses broke the Tablets.

2. First Temple, the Babylonians breached the walls.

3. Second Temple, The Romans breached the walls. 

4. Apostomos, a Roman general, publicly burned a Torah scroll.

5. An idol was placed in the Temple by Apostomos, or some say it was Menashe, the idol-worshipping king of Judah.
