The Tragedy Near Kansas City
avatar

To Our Temple Family,

My heart is heavy in the wake of the shooting that occurred a few days ago at the Jewish Community Center and retirement facility outside of Kansas City.

This week we are celebrating the story of our people’s exodus from oppression to freedom.  Passover occurs just as the days are lengthening – light is returning to the world after a long, cold winter.   Our festival can remind us to resist darkness; to commit ourselves to standing against injustice and those who would sow fear.

My colleague Rabbi Moti Rieber’s two daughters were at the JCC at the time of the shooting, but were not hurt.   At his community’s seder, which had about 60 participants, he said, “There are crazy people out there, and we have to remember our stories to get us through. We do what we’ve always done: We gather as a community to support each other and be Jewish together.”

Serving Easter Supper at St. Peter’s Church
avatar

Most evenings in Beverly people who are in need can come to one of the local churches for supper.  TBA usually cooks once a month for the Monday Night Supper.

This coming Sunday, we will be cooking and serving Easter supper at Saint Peter’s Church (4 Ocean Street) so that members of their congregation can celebrate the holiday with their families.  Preparation begins at 4:30, dinner at 6:00, followed by clean-up.

At our Passover Seder we say, “Let all who are hungry come and eat.”   What better way to honor our holiday than to help our neighbors celebrate theirs.

Any questions please contact me, Dave Carnivale or Arnie Cowan.

A Big Thank You to Stacey Ames, Falmer Thermal Spray and Michael Grant
avatar

20140207_083045

What a joy when people see a TBA need and step forward to assist in meeting that need. Supreme thanks go to Stacey Ames and Michael Grant for performing a true mitzvah for our cemetery on Cole Street and, hence, for all of us in the TBA family.

Over the past few years many have noticed the deteriorating conditions plaguing the center front iron gate at the cemetery, our so-called pedestrian gate. Rust was taking its toll and parts were in need of welding. The beautifully hand-crafted bronze design over the gate itself had rust running down the face of the design.

Stacey first stepped forward to help us find a craftsman to do some spot welding on the lower part of the gate. But she saw that much more than welding was needed. She volunteered to work on the labor-intensive job of fully repairing, restoring and protecting the gate and the overhead design piece. Michael stepped forward to remove the gate and transport it to Stacey’s business, Falmer Thermal Spray in Salem, and to return and reinistall it when the work was completed.

Stacey and her crew stripped down the metal and returned it to its original state, brought in a welder for repairs, applied a protective zinc coating and another undercoating and applied finishing paint where called for. The design piece was restored to its original shiny condition and will quickly darken as it reacquires its patina. This restoration and preservation work should mean we won’t have to worry about maintenance of those items for many years.
