Passover 5775 at Adath Emanu-El
On Friday, April 3, Passover Service will begin at 5 p.m. and will be an abbreviated service so that congregants may join their families afterward for the first seder.
On Saturday, April 4, Adath Emanu-El will hold our congregational seder. The seder will be held at the Temple and reservations are required. If you wish to attend this seder but are unable to because of cost considerations, please contact Laura Simon or Rabbi David. Also, if a family wishes to host members at their family seder or wishes to attend a family seder, please contact the office.
Please join us for our closing Passover Service on Friday, April 10 at 6:00 pm, and join us for our annual “Back to Chametz” Pizza Dinner. Come be with family and friends. Begin the transition from our week of observing the Passover commandments, to observing the daily routines of everyday life in a modern day society. And what can bet-ter define modern day eating than enjoying great pizza!
If you can, to make this dinner even better, we’re asking those who would like to participate, to become a “P3” (Post-Passover Pizza) sponsor. For only $18, you can help the synagogue defray some of the cost and perform a mitzvah at the same time by help-ing our synagogue. To become a P3 sponsor, all that you need to do is send or drop off a check to the office in the amount of $18, payable to Adath Emanu-El.
Please write P3 in the memo section of the check, so the office staff knows what it is for. We hope to see many of you there and hope that you, too, can become a P3 sponsor.

Rabbi David's Spring Book Review
May 4, 2015, 7 p.m. Rebbe: The Life and Teachings of Menachem M. Schneerson, the Most Influential Rabbi in Modern History
In this enlightening biography, Joseph Telushkin offers a captivating portrait of the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, a towering figure who saw beyond conventional boundaries to turn his movement, Chabad-Lubavitch, into one of the most dynamic and widespread organizations ever seen in the Jewish world. At once an incisive work of history and a compendium of Rabbi Schneerson's teachings, Rebbe is the definitive guide to understanding one of the most vital, intriguing figures of the last centuries.
From his modest headquarters in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the Rebbe advised some of the world's greatest leaders and shaped matters of state and society. Statesmen and artists as diverse as Ronald Reagan, Robert F. Kennedy, Yitzchak Rabin, Menachem Begin, Elie Wiesel, and Bob Dylan span the spectrum of those who sought his counsel.
Rebbe explores Schneerson's overarching philosophies against the backdrop of treacherous history, revealing his clandestine operations to rescue and sustain Jews in the Soviet Union, and his critical role in the expansion of the food stamp program throughout the United States. More broadly, it examines how he became, in effect, an ambassador for Jews globally, and how he came to be viewed by many as not only a spiritual archetype but a savior.
Telushkin also delves deep into the more controversial aspects of the Rebbe's leadership, analyzing his views on modern science and territorial compromise in Israel, and how in the last years of his life, many of his followers believed that he would soon be revealed as the Messiah, a source of contention until this day.
(A copy of the book and sign-out sheet are available in the Adath Emanu-El Library).
