Shabbat Shalom

No Task Too Small in the Service of God and Mankind

In the service of God and mankind, every task, as minor as it may seem, can be holy. Two memories highlight this idea. Growing up my mother, of blessed memory, would motivate me to take the garbage can to the curb by telling me "You have an opportunity to do the mitzvah of honoring your mother and father." I did not always run but I realize how she hoped to instill within me the value of service to others. I was not "just" taking out the garbage but engaging in a holy act.

I also remember feeling regret after my mother passed that I did not help her enough. During shiva, I reflected that one of the only times I helped clean the dishes on Friday night was my first Shabbat after my gap year when I was so happy to be home and so appreciative of my family. Now, I do my best to live with this awareness. I am also inspired by one my first Rabbinic mentors, Rabbi Alvin Marcus of West Orange, NJ who treated the shul like his home. Whether picking up a stray piece of paper or straightening out the chairs, no task was too small for Rabbi Marcus, as a shul is God's home and our home.

As I shared last week in my Shabbat sermon, God assures all of the Levites whether those who carry the ark, the curtains or the wood that all roles are important in His eyes. The task of the Kohanim to clean the menorah was considered one of the greatest contributions but it was done early in the morning to little fanfare.

Agudath Sholom is a warm and inclusive community but we can all do more to become a shul with an even greater commitment to middot and menschlichkeit. Whether holding a door for someone, picking up some garbage, serving an elderly person at Kiddush or sharing a kind word, we are all tasked with creating an environment of Godliness.

I know we are on the right track. Last Shabbat, I spoke to the boys leading Adon Olam and, without missing a beat, they embraced an opportunity to help. It was very special. Following the recitation of kiddush, a group of young boys went into the social hall and served drinks and cake. We launched the kiddush ambassadors. The inaugural team includes Robert Okun, Gilad Karsch, Mati Finkelstein, Avi Gordon, Daniel Janush and Jake Sigman. If your child, boy or girl, would like to join, please let me know.

In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King,

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well'."

May we always be inspired to seize each opportunity to serve God and our fellow man no matter how seemingly small the task. G-d willing, we will embody a spirit menschlichkeit of that will further lift our shul, schools and community for future generations. We are all God's ambassadors.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Daniel Cohen

AIPAC Israel Advocacy Alert on Iran

We are at a critical moment - one that may shape the future of the entire Western world as we know it-as the international community negotiates a deal with Iran. AIPAC is engaged in an campaign to remind our elected officials of the elements THEY said must be included in a final deal:

  • Anytime anywhere inspections
  • Verification of prior military dimensions of their program
  • A roll back of sanctions tied to Iranian proven actions and behavior
  • An end date tied to Iranian demonstration of the end of their quest for a nuclear weapon
  • Sufficient dismantlement so that Iran has no pathway to a nuclear weapon

We turn to you today and ask you to be on call. Be ready should your Senators and Members of Congress find themselves in the very difficult position of reviewing a deal that does not include these five critical elements. We hope we can count on you to join the effort to shape the course of history and help protect everything we hold dear. For more information, visit

Summer Flick Series with Rabbi Walk

Singing in the Dark

The Men's Club BBQ costs $7 and will include hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh corn, salads, watermelon and beverages. The BBQ will starts at 6:30 pm. The movie is free and begins at 7:30 pm.

"This important and virtually unknown independent film is one of the very first American feature films to focus on the Holocaust. A concentration camp survivor (Moishe Oysher) emigrates to the United States and suffers amnesia due to the traumatic experiences he has endured."

Additional nominations, with the consent of the nominee, may be made by written petition signed by thirty (30) members of the Congregation in good standing and filed with the Nominating Committee at least ten (10) days before the Annual Meeting, and written notice of the nominations so made by petition shall be given to each member of the Congregation at least five (5) days before the Annual Meeting.

We propose a dues increase effective July 1, raising family membership by $200 and single membership from $50-80, depending on category. We also propose a new category of Patron Membership at $2,750 per family, detailed below. The Board approved this dues increase due to: increasing repair costs for our aging building, higher health care costs, offset the $100,000+ accumulated deficit from prior years, anticipated lower revenue during building re-construction, and increased Youth programming costs. CAS has not increased dues in almost ten years, while costs have increased. Your Board has worked to prudently manage CAS finances.

We will offer reserved seating in all three services this year, based on last year's interest in a third service. The CAS Board approved a new policy for 2015 (not subject to membership vote) . A full policy is posted on line at
  • We have replaced our Tzedakah Program with the Patron Membership category to signify these members' extra support for our synagogue. Patron Members will be entitled to reserved seating on the High Holidays and membership will be acknowledged. Patron membership will be $2,750 per member family.
  • We will offer two seating charts, one for Rosh Hashanah and one for Yom Kippur. We will ask members if they require their seat for either or both holidays. This will allow us to accommodate all seating requests.
  • To ensure continued interest in the third service and to allow us to accommodate all requests, we ask at least 15 member families to confirm their interest in becoming Patron members or reserving seats for this service by July 15. The third service will be held in a special room to be constructed once interest has been confirmed. The third service will begin at 6 AM on Rosh Hashanah and 9 AM on Yom Kippur.
  • We ask members attend one of our three services to help us ensure we meet all member requests. We ask member NOT reserve seats in one service but attend another. We hope to have adequate open seats in each service.
  • Members will receive an email notifying them of the 2015 High Holiday seating reservations. Members will be asked to confirm and pay for their Patron Membership or reserved seats by August 15. If their reserved seats are not confirmed and paid for by that date, the seats revert to CAS and will be reassigned.
 We propose to add paragraphs 5, 6 and 7 to Article II of the Bylaws, so that the Board can: (1) allow participation in meetings by conference calls, (2) use email to allow Board members to approve actions by unanimous consent, and (3) allow participation in meetings and votes by conference calls and emails, provided that a quorum participates in the conference calls/electronic meeting.

I. Implemented Security Measures The CAS Board of Directors has approved and implemented the following security measures: a key pad lock entry system to control building entry during the week; enhanced video surveillance; "panic buttons" to notify police of an emergency; and a Volunteer Patrol Program. Additionally, we have consulted with the Stamford Police Department and are meeting with the US Department of Homeland Security as part of our Security review.

II. Additional Proposed Security Measures This past February we held a Special Meeting open to the Congregation to discuss additional security measures. At such meeting, the Congregation was unable to reach the required consensus on a course of action, but approved revisiting the issue at our Annual Meeting. Accordingly, we request your vote on one of the following options: (1) A paid armed off-duty Stamford police officer on Shabbat and Holidays; (2) A paid unarmed guard on Shabbat and Holidays; or (3) None of the above.

Additionally, please note that since the Special Meeting, several members donated funds for a Stamford police officer to guard CAS on Shabbat and holidays. These funds will run out by June 30, 2015, accordingly, the police officer will only be extended in accordance with the outcome of the vote described above.
