Message from Rabbi Lauren Kurland
As you may recall, in January, I traveled to Israel for one week
with the Leadership Institute for Congregational School
Principals, a program jointly run by the Jewish Theological
Seminary and Hebrew Union College, and funded by the UJA. Visiting
Israel with other educators allowed me to view the country with
new eyes. My time in the land was experienced as a series of
“teachable moments,” which I could repack and bring back to the
Ansche Chesed community.
On one bright morning in Haifa, we visited a secular Jewish
school, where students speak Hebrew and learn Tanakh
(Bible) as literature, but do not otherwise necessarily relate to
nor practice Judaism. [A brief note about Israeli schools: the
Israeli school system consists of many separate but equal schools
- there are Arab schools and Jewish schools, and then within
government-funded Jewish schools, there are dati, religious
schools, and hiloni, secular schools.] At the hiloni
school we visited, a special outside organization had been
contracted to teach Jewish studies for 45 minutes every week in
order to provide more meaning to students about Judaism than they
might otherwise be exposed to simply by living in the state of
Israel. In the 2nd grade classroom we observed, the teacher
presented a lesson on Tefila, prayer. She wrote Tefila
on the board in Hebrew, and then asked the children to free
associate words that relate to Tefila. The children, having
a command of the Hebrew language, offered all sorts of impressive
words and ideas, among them: Beit Knesset (synagogue),
Beit HaMikdash (the holy Temple), siddur (prayerbook),
tefillin (phylacteries), and haKotel (the Western
Wall). I sat there with my mouth open; would that American Jewish
children so easily make such complex associations! However, the
teacher later shared with us that just because her students knew
these words as part of their vocabulary did not mean that they
resonated with the concepts behind them. Knowing the word Beit
Knesset and recognizing that it relates to Tefila does
not mean that a child appreciates the meaning of a Beit Knesset
or considers it a place to go in times of need or for silent
This distinction, we learned, is one between safah
(language) and lashon (tongue). When one learns safah,
or language, one literally obtains the tools to communicate. When
one learns lashon, however, one finds meaning and
connection through the words and concepts. Teaching safah,
as the Israeli classroom observation showed, is relatively easy;
teaching lashon is difficult. Acquiring lashon
requires taking each concept a step further to understand how
words and concepts shape and form our Jewish identities. Lashon,
indeed, is what we wish our children to learn, and it requires
much more than a good education – be it through day school or
afterschool – to learn lashon, our children must be steeped
in the concepts and cycles of Jewish life. May we as a community
find ways together to provide transformational opportunities so
that we and our children develop a lashon that affects the
very essence of ourselves.

Beginning Wednesday, March 1
Noon - 1:30 p.m.
Ansche Chesed is pleased to inaugurate its Senior Adult Program.
Join your peers for a new series of lunchtime sessions with

Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Leonard Fein, March 10 & 11
We welcome Dr. Leonard Fein

Shabbat, March 10 and 11. Dr. Fein, a prolific writer, a
well-known educator and the founder of the magazine Moment
as well as of Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger
speak on three diverse topics.
FRIDAY EVENING LECTURE
Services 5:30 p.m., Potluck Dinner 6:30 p.m., Lecture 7:45 p.m.
The Very First Question That Was Ever Asked: Judaism as an
The grand theme of Judaism takes us from Avraham’s “hineini”
– here I am – to Isaiah’s. The question is always the same: “Where
are you?” What does “here I am” mean in our time?
SHABBAT LUNCH LECTURE
Potluck lunch follows services.
B’reshit 8:21 vs. Anne Frank
“The designs of man are evil from his youth.” That’s God, just
after the flood. “In spite of everything, I still believe that
people are good at heart.” That’s Anne Frank, a child. Whom shall
we trust on so basic a disagreement?
SEUDAH SHLISHIT STUDY SESSION, 5:15 p.m.
Dreams and Disappointments: Reflections on Israel
Can one be simultaneously a critic of Zion and a lover of Zion?
How can one set aside the disapointments – there have been many –
and restore the dream? Does dreaming make any sense in light of
the harsh realities of the Middle East?
Friday Night Dinner: Dinner is a dairy meal. Please
bring enough to serve 8 people generously. Last names A-H bring
salads, vegetables or other side dishes; I-S bring entrees; T- Z
bring desserts. Everyone is also encouraged to bring a bottle of
kosher wine or other beverage.
Shabbat Lunch: You may bring an item for a potluck lunch
OR contribute $10 toward the purchase of food.

Reflections on Purim
Purim, this year falling on March 13th in the secular calendar, is
a marvelous holiday for children. Purim encourages children to
really be children – to run around the synagogue, to wear funny
costumes, and to make noise during the reading of the Megillah
in order to viscerally respond to the heroes and enemies in our
lives. We adults can learn a lot from children during Purim: to
let down our guard once in a while and show our silly sides, and
to embrace the tactile and amusing aspects of Judaism as fully as
we do its intellectual and serious side. Our children need our
release as much as we do; if they only observe us approaching
Judaism in a serious fashion, they are unlikely to associate
positively long- term with synagogue life. On the other hand, if
they see adults enjoying – truly enjoying – holidays, and sharing
joy together and with the community-at- large, they are more
likely to view Judaism as a religion that offers, in the theme of
Ecclesiastes, a time to celebrate and time to be serious. While
Ansche Chesed, to its credit, is hardly the type of synagogue
where people act unreasonably formally, we too are reminded by
Purim that the beauty of Judaism is its ability to embrace old and
young, clown and scholar. May your Adar be full of joy and
happiness. Hag Sameah!
-- Rabbi Lauren Kurland

PURIM CELEBRATION – Sunday, March 12, 10:30 am- 2:00 pm
The community is invited to the Ansche Chesed Purim Celebration on
Sunday, March 12th. The celebration is sponsored by the Ansche
Chesed Hebrew School and co-sponsored by Yaldaynu Preschool and
the Ansche Chesed Family Social Action Committee. Doors open at
10:30 am for Purim crafts & hamentaschen making (co-sponsored with
Yaldaynu Preschool) and a child-friendly, participatory retelling
of the Purim story. Soferet
(scribe) Jen Taylor Friedman
will then present a new Megillat Esther
(scroll of Esther)
dedicated to the children of Ansche Chesed – a rare and special
opportunity for your family to learn about the process of creating
such a scroll. At 12:30 pm, magician Elliot Zimet will perform
Purim magic, and at 1:00 pm, families are invited to make gift
packages for residents of the Jewish Home & Hospital, the Ansche
Chesed Shelter, and other causes. The gift packages are sponsored
by the AC Family Social Action Committee. Cost for the day: $10
per child/Maximum $25 per family. There will be food for purchase.
All are invited to come in costume!
Gift Package Delivery at the Purim Celebration, March 12
The Ansche Chesed Family Social Action Committee is a new,
parent-run committee that grew out of Ansche Chesed’s ReImagine
work over the past two years. On Hanukkah, the Family Social
Action Committee sponsored a trip to the Jewish Home & Hospital
Day Center to teach the participants dreidel and to sing
Hanukkah songs. Over the course of the year, the Family Social
Action Committee will sponsor additional programs for families to
engage in social action and tikkun olam (repairing the
world). Our next program will take place on March 12th at the AC
Purim Celebration, at which the Family Social Action Committee
will proudly co- sponsor a gift package program to benefit the
Jewish Home & Hospital, the Ansche Chesed Homeless Shelter, and
other causes. Package making will begin at 1 pm. At 1:45 pm,
3rd-6th graders and their families are invited to learn more about
the Purim mitzvah of matanot l’evyonim (gifts for the
poor), and then deliver these packages to the Jewish Home on 106th
Street. 7th graders are also invited to make packages and deliver
them to an elderly residence home on the Upper West Side. Space is
limited for package delivery, so please call Mara at 212-865- 0600
x 207 to reserve your place! Contact Rabbi Kurland at 212-865-0600
x 208 for more information on how your family can get involved
with future family social action programs.

entertaining the other classes in a festive Adar fashion this
week; and the Dalet (4th grade) class invites our senior friends
to come bake with us on April 4th. Contact Lauren at x.208 for
more information about baking with the Dalet class.

delight to all who hear and see it. We thank all those who have
contributed so far. If you need another form, or more information
about the Megillah, call x 208 or email LKurland@AnscheChesed.org.

come in to demonstrate her work on the Megillah completed thus
far. She will be visiting on Thursday, March 2 from 3:45-4:15 pm
and then again from 4:20-4:45 pm. All community members are also
invited to observe the hands-on, experiential presentation;
