Hanukkah Gift Gallery

Jean de Joinville's graphic description of the relationship between the rebuilding of the prison, the hospital, and the school and the discourse of normative value(s) is sure to be widely imitated. The rebuilding of the prison, the hospital, and the school is homologous with the discourse of normative value(s). The linguistic construction of the master-slave dialectic is symptomatic of the discourse of post-capitalist hegemony.
In mid-November, Phil Falcone and Rabbi Stanway dropped off all the Thanksgiving fixings to our friends at Trinity AME church in Long Branch.  The food will be bagged and handed out to those in want on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  Many thanks to all who donated to the food drive.  You have fulfilled the mitzvah of ‘feeding the hungry’ and brightened up a family’s Thanksgiving.
Purim Pop Palooza!

Get ready for another exciting Purim Spiel! This year we are doing my newest original spiel called Purim Pop Palooza based on current pop song hits like Señorita, Old Town Road and Bad Guy.

Auditions for TBM students in grades 3-12 will be on Sunday, January 5, during school time. Please prepare a short song that shows off your voice. The sign up sheet will be on the music room door beginning in mid-December. Students in grades 1 & 2 can be in the chorus (no audition). Adults are welcome to be in the show too. We also need help to create scenery.

Rehearsals will take place after school (till about 1:30) on the following Sundays: 1/12, 2/2, 2/9, 2/23 & 3/1. The performance is on Sunday 3/8 during school time. Attendance is very important for a successful show- out of respect for the players and the show, please check your calendars for your child’s availability before committing your child to be in the spiel.

We will be taking photos and video of the performance and need 100% participation. By signing up your child to be in the spiel, you are agreeing to good attendance and for photo and video to be taken and posted online and in the newspaper. All cast members must practice their parts at home and come to rehearsals prepared.

If your child will be participating please click on the following link to receive text messages specific to the Spiel:

Please email me if you have any questions.
Thank you,

Mercy Center Needs Some Help, Too!
Our friends at Mercy Center - with whom we have an ongoing Social Action relationship - need some Thanksgiving help.  Here is the email from Rebecca Nichols, the director at Mercy Center: Do you have one or two strong-armed persons who could volunteer with us on Tuesday 26th, to put frozen turkeys in bags? 9am-4pm? We are short the strength!!

If you can help, please get in touch with Rebecca at
 A Note From Rabbi Stanway
I have a colleague who is a chaplain on the USS Abraham Lincoln.  They have an extended deployment and they are feeling really run down.  So, Beth Miriam, how about we brighten up a sailor's day, especially since we are entering the holiday season.  See the picture below to see what they need.  You bring it to the temple, I will mail it.

Here is her text:
Looking for an easy way to support the troops? The USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN just got extended, again, and could use some love to get them through this seemingly never ending deployment.  Please see below for ideas (they’re specifically looking for holiday decorations) but you can also never go wrong with:
Toiletries (for women too)
Beef jerky
Non-chocolate candy (chocolate rarely survives the shipping process)
Games (cards, Uno, old school stuff)
Used video games (they have a variety on consoles onboard)
Used movies (DVD’s)
Cards (especially from kids)
Tuna packets
Seeds (sunflower in shells and other)
Girl Scout cookies
Fruit snacks
Goldfish crackers
Store bought snacks
Stocking stuffer type small gifts
I recommend using the Post Office’s Flat Rate boxes but it’s also really easy to ship stuff to Navy ships via Amazon.
