A Statement from Rabbi Evan Sheinhait and TTS President, Bryna Musuira
Hamas’s attacks in Israel this week have left Jews around the world in a state of grief, anger, and mourning.  
In all moments of life, Temple Tiferet Shalom supports its members, our local and national communities, and Jewish communities in Israel and around the world. 
In the coming weeks, and for as long as this conflict continues, our Temple is here to support you and your family through constructive dialogue and prayer. 
For ways to support Israel during this difficult time, please visit the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ’s) article entitled  “How You Can Support Israel During This Time of Great Tragedy and Mourning,” at https://urj.org/blog/how-you-can-support-israel-during-time-great-tragedy-and-mourning

Rabbi, Evan Sheinhait

As one of our three pilgrimage festivals, Shavuot is a time for gathering together as a community. Shavuot is our summer harvest festival, celebrating the revelation of Torah on Mount Sinai. There are many traditions involving cheesecake and barley, but the all-night Torah study is a favorite of mine. In Hebrew called Tikkun Leil Shavuot, these late night sessions bring people together for learning, prayer, and song. Tikkun Leils are a time to be with other people all in the pursuit of knowledge, the literal translation of the word "Torah." One departs an evening such as this with a sense of holiness as dawn rises in the East. It is a mitzvah to gather as a community to celebrate Shavuot.

 

We also have our own community gathering happening this month.The Annual Congregational Meeting is a time for members of Temple Tiferet Shalom to gather and reflect on the year. We review what has happened over the past 12 months and look ahead to what our future has in store for us. Our new board members are officially installed, and major changes to our community’s minhag (practice) are adopted. While functionally different from a Tikkun Leil Shavuot, through our congregation meeting, one departs the morning with a sense of rejuvenation and hope for our future. It is a time of communal revelation. It is a mitzvah to gather as a community for our congregational meeting.

 

There is a lot of excitement to look forward to here at TTS this June! Below. you will find the times for the upcoming gatherings. I hope to see you all as we fill our sanctuary with ancient and modern traditions that make us the Reform Jewish home here in Peabody. 

 

  • Annual Congregational Meeting: Sunday, June 9th @ 9:30 a.m. (Breakfast included)

 

  • Shavuot 7th Day Festival Service with Yizkor and Confirmation: Wednesday, June 12th @ 5:00 p.m. (Dinner to follow)

Chaverim:

 

Well, here we are! At the end of this month, my three years as President of Temple Tiferet Shalom come to close, and Jodi Coburn capably takes the reins as your President. Eight years ago, Past President Dr. Ed Weiner told me that being President would be one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life, and most importantly, would enable me to make a difference to the Jewish community. He was right.

 

Over the past three years, our Temple has transformed and evolved. When I took over as President, the COVID vaccine had just come out, and my daughters had just spent the entire year learning from our dining room table. We at the Temple were still closely watching all attendance and social distancing rules to try to have in-person Temple services, particularly high holiday services. Gratefully, we were able to have in-person high holiday services in the Fall of 2021 and since.

 

We were planning a multi-million-dollar renovation of the Temple.  How does one fundraise and plan that size renovation, particularly as the cost of materials was skyrocketing post-COVID? But with completely dedicated building and fundraising committees, the climb toward Mount Everest -- our dream of a Temple building that would last for the next 25-50 years -- became reality. And the capstone of the project – the TTS Gala in the Spring of 2023 – celebrating the completion of the building project was a real high point!

 

We also faced a change in Rabbinical leadership. Rabbi Kudan was our post-consolidation spiritual leader for eight years, and many more for our family from Malden. Change is never easy, and his loss was difficult for many, but with Rabbi Evan Sheinhait, we found a kind, highly capable spiritual leader who has built strong ties across our community, including our youth and families. This is so important because we want to grow the future of our community and serve as the home for Reform Jews on the North Shore.
