B"H

Message from the Rabbi

 

Did you know that there are soles in heaven? Nope, that was not a typo. Soles from shoes. You see, we are about to celebrate Simchat Torah, a day when we dance with the Torah scrolls. Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov taught that on Simchat Torah morning the angel Michael and his cadre of angels collect the torn soles and scuffed shoes from last night’s dancing, and they make them into a crown for G d.

On Simchat Torah it is not about who achieved more in his study, or even who devoted more time to learning Torah. It is a time to celebrate—celebrate the Torah and the special bond that it creates between us and G d. As the Kabbalists teach, there are three things that are tied one to another: Torah, Israel and G d.

So pull out your dancing shoes and celebrate with G d. He is waiting to have this dance with you!

 

Rabbi Eilfort

Chabad Weekly Update - Simchat Torah Edition

Important Minyan Needed Sunday at 8:30am

Sunday is Hoshanah Rabbah, a day of special significance when a divine judgment takes place. It is VERY important to have a Minyan (which lasts about 90 minutes). If you are able to help with this tremendous Mitzvah please respond to this message as soon as possible. Thank you in advance and G-d bless!

Exciting Announcement

This year’s High Holiday services were truly uplifting as we enjoyed wonderful crowds including many new participants from our area (not to mention plenty of out of town guests). During services the shul’s president, Mr. Len Hyman, made an exciting announcement, which the Rabbi further elaborated upon.

When we were in the midst of building, which was completed three years ago, we took a five-year, $300,000 construction loan. Thank G-d, and many wonderful donors, we have managed to pay down our mortgage to about $50,000. We have been informed by our lender, the Meromim Chul Foundation, that the final $25,000 will be donated back if we can raise $25,000 at this time. That means that every donation towards the ‘Burn our Mortgage’ campaign will be matched dollar for dollar.

We must act now!

Thankfully, we received numerous generous pledges towards this aim on Yom Kippur, but we still must collect those pledges and more to meet our goal.

Will you help?

Mr. Hyman explained that we must be financially self-sufficient and that every dollar raised here is used here.

We are almost there!

Please respond generously to this tremendous opportunity to literally double the impact of every dollar you give. Donate securely online by following this link:

www.ChabadatLaCosta.com/donate

Be sure to mention in the note that the donation is for the ‘Burn the Mortgage’ campaign!  

Kiddush Sponsor

This week’s Shabbat Kiddush is sponsored by Channah Hale and Arnold Tubis in honor of several Yarzeits including: David Glovsky, Doris Seigal Bornstein, and Rose Tubis.

The Kiddushes for Shimini Atzeret and Simchat Torah are sponsored by the Alter Family and Rabbi and Mrs Yossi and Muka Rodal.

Please join us.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to join us for this enjoyable and delicious gathering.  

Kiddush Sponsorship

The Beauty of Our Kiddush

Every week following services we enjoy a beautiful Kiddush luncheon together. Such an amazing Kiddush doesn’t create itself. Thank G-d, we have a dedicated Kiddush crew, led by Naomi Alter and including Channah Hale, Sheila Lebovitz, the Rebbetzin, and several others, who make our Kiddush into something beautiful and enjoyable. But it takes more than willing hands to make the food. It also takes generous souls to sponsor the food. Without a sponsor the cost must come out of our operating budget, which is already stretched thin as it is.

If you have been a beneficiary of the Kiddush and haven’t sponsored it for a while please step forward now. Even if you have recently sponsored and kind find it in your heart to sponsor it again we need you. Kiddush sponsorship starts at $180. But if you want something a bit more lavish with more variety you can add to that amount, and it is all, very much, appreciated. It is also a very big blessing that you have facilitated ‘Oneg Shabbat’ (the enjoyment of Shabbos) for the entire congregation! Our Shabbat prayers describe the special blessings achieved by such generosity!

Thank you and G-d bless!

PLEASE BE SURE TO JOIN US AND PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

Looking Ahead…

We have completely refurbished and updated our Educational Annex, 7740-E El Camino Real, making it into a space where ‘stay-at-home’ working parents can share space with others in like circumstances. What makes our space special is the assistance we will offer with the little ones.

The plan includes having several designated private desks, a long bar counter table facing the wall, and a high-rise sit/stand table in the middle of the space. There will also be a couple of cozy work nooks, a nursing lounge, a restroom with changing table, a printer/copier, access to a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, and Wifi.

The area for the children will feature a baby zone, a soft play climbing area with ball pit and slide, a quiet reading corner, a train table, manipulative toy zone, and an art zone. We also hope to incorporate a chalk wall, a magnet wall, and a Lego wall.

Regarding pricing there will be hourly, daily, and monthly plans available, affording the customer maximum flexibility. This will enable her to just drop in, stay for a day, or using this space as her regular work space.

Haftarah Overview

By Gabbai Harold Reisman

 

Shabbat Chol Ha’Moed Sukkot

Ezekiel  38:17-39:16

A central theme of the Haftorah can be found in v. 38:23, "I will be magnified, sanctified, and known in the eyes of many nations, and they will know that I am the Lord." In the vision of Ezekiel, these events preclude the penultimate act in the redemption performed by Hashem. In Chazal, Gog ceased being king of a nation called Magog; instead both figures are forces of nations that will conduct joint operations against Israel. Gog and Magog are a combined type of anti-Moshiach. In the end, there is a final and total destruction of the enemies and complete victory of Hashem. 

Sukkot is a festival of joy and rejoicing; it is fitting that we read of the final devastation of the enemies of Hashem and Israel. The defeat of the great enemies of Hashem is a sanctification of the Name and so Ezekiel relates the event to Sukkot when all the world recognizes Hashem as King.

Shmini Atzeret

I Kings  8:54-9:1

This Haftarah is read only outside Israel. The day is called "Atzeret" or convocation assembly. "Atzeret" means the obligation to pause or stop in a holy place and serve Hashem with prayer and study. In this way, prayer, study and mitzvot permeate the rejoicing. Other examples called "atzeret" are the seventh day of Pesach as well as Shavuot. The essence of the Haftarah is the prayer of King Solomon on behalf of the people just before they left for home. The prayer has no material requests but only gives thanks for the many kindnesses of Hashem along with the hope that the people will continue to observe the ordnances and commandments given them. May we, too, be spiritually uplifted to be able to face the coming year.

Simchat Torah

Joshua  1:1-18

The Haftarah for V'zot Hab'rachah is also read on this holiday. Just as the Haftarah deals with the end of one era and the major transition to another, so Simchat Torah is the end of one annual reading and the start of another cycle. The transition from Moses to Joshua meant a major transition from Hashem's bounty and miracles in the desert. Now, in Israel, the people would have to achieve through material and natural ways. The Haftarah notes "be strong and firm" while Hashem offers His spiritual strength. As we begin the new cycle of Torah readings, we, too, must use what renewed understanding of the past weeks we have learned to set standards in our own lives for appropriate spirituality in the coming year. The message to Joshua refunds every year, especially after experiencing the Days of Awe. Making a true commitment is only the first step. Now we must live what we have learned and absorbed.

A Comm-Unity for You (and Me)

 

Belonging to a Jewish Community is not only gratifying and fulfilling it is also extremely important, for within the community one finds a place to connect with G-d and one’s soul, a place of learning and spiritual enrichment, a great source of friends, a place to bestow one’s Jewish legacy upon his or her child/ren, and so much more. Check out www.ChabadatLaCosta.com to learn more. 

 

The beauty of OUR Jewish Community is that we offer so many different options that everyone is sure to find something enriching and meaningful. Below please find a partial list of some of our current offerings. If you have never come by before pick an item or two and try it out. If you have already tried an item or two find another one that sounds interesting and give it a whirl. “Connection” – that is the name of the game and that is precisely what you will find here!

 

*Daily Minyan   *Shabbat Services   *Weekly Kiddush Luncheon   *Mysticism Classes   *Torah Portion Class   *Hebrew School   *Bar/Bat Mitzvah Training   *Mommy and Me   *Family Friday Night Services and Dinner   *Women’s Group   *Youth Activities   *Pastoral Counseling   *Holiday Programming   *Community Meals   *Hospital Visitation   *Weekly Email Updates   *Hospital Visitation   *Mezuzah Campaign   *Jewish Heritage Workshops   *Jewish Learning Institute Affiliate

 

Need a Minyan?

If you need a Minyan to say Kaddish please give the office at least a few days’ notice. We are happy to provide this important service, but it takes time to arrange enough participants to assure the quorum is present. Please email info@ChabadatLaCosta.comyour request.

Create Your Jewish Legacy Plan for the Future - NOW

 

We have been blessed with life! Yet, we know that no one lives forever. This begs the question, “What will be your legacy?” Most of us have children, and they certainly should figure prominently into our plans. But our children are only a part of what we leave behind. Just as we endeavor to give Tzedakah generously, so as to selflessly make the world a better place while we are alive, so too we need to make sure that we leave a percentage of our estates for the benefit of others. Judaism tells us that it is incumbent upon us to leave the world better than when we found it. We do this by giving Tzedakah.

 

We can help.

 

 Many people do not prepare appropriately for the inevitable. They do not leave a will, or even if they do it is not consistent with Jewish Law. If one wants his body to be handled with the respect and care mandated by Jewish Law or if one wants the funeral service conducted according to Jewish Law, it must be arranged in advance. Don’t leave these critical details to luck!

 

Contact Rabbi Eilfort for a private appointment so these important matters can be handled how you want. Send a personal email to RabbiE@ChabadatLaCosta.com to schedule an appointment today.

 

Shabbat Services with Meaning & Joy

Every Saturday we get together to celebrate the holy Shabbat in song and prayer. Our services are both traditional and user-friendly, as we fully recognize that not everyone has experience ‘Davening’ (praying) in a traditional setting. What those who have joined have found is that the atmosphere in our synagogue is conducive to meaningful meditation. A knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary to participate. In fact, the only thing that is needed is the desire to learn and to connect to the Almighty. It is an enriching experience not to be missed! Shabbat services begin at10am and conclude at approximately 12:30pm and are followed by a wonderful community lunch. There is no cost to attend and reservations are not needed.

Hebrew School - Hebrew School THIS WEEK

Give your children the Jewish education that they deserve! OurSunday Hebrew School offers lots of hands-on activities and positive reinforcement. Students learn Hebrew language skills, Jewish living and observance, Jewish history, and so much more! We include arts & crafts, field trips, and holiday programming to make their experience even more enjoyable. Your child will have fun as he or she gains an appreciation for the ‘why’s and ‘how’s of Judaism. Our students want to be here!

Omni La Costa Resort Welcomes Chabad at La Costa Guests

We are pleased that our world-famous neighbor, the Omni La Costa Resort, has extended a special program offering all sorts of perks to those who book using the ‘Chabad’ code when booking. The special terms include the lowest room rate available, a reduced resort fee of $15.00 (normally $28.00) and complimentary self-parking (savings of $18.00 per car per day).  The resort’s deposit requirement is waived for Chabad guests as well as the three-day cancellation policy.  Chadad guests may cancel until 6pm on the day of arrival to avoid a charge of one night’s room and tax.

To book your room at the special Chabad rate, call toll-free 800-854-5000 or book online at  http://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/san-diego-la-costa/meetings/chabad.  Or you can find more information or book through our website:www.ChabadatLaCosta.com. Follow the link for Visitor Information.

 

To date more than 450 people have used the Chabad code this past year (2017)! Many people have expressed gratitude at having such world-class facilities in such close and convenient proximity to our Shul, and the joy at being to stay at the Omni and walk to Chabad for Shabbat services.

 

Memorial Plaques & Tree of Life Plaques Available

Our beautiful Memorial Boards have been installed. We specifically designed our custom-built bookcases to ‘frame’ each of the boards. The first Memorial Board was dedicated by the Brunelle Family and the new Board was dedicated by the Alter Family.

We are currently offering Memorial Plaques to those who wish to perpetually honor the memory of a loved one in a most dignified and permanent manner. Those who dedicate Memorial Plaques will also receive yearly reminders of the Yarzeit and the light on the Board will be illuminated each year on the Yarzeit.

We also have a gorgeous Tree of Life dedicated by the Lieberman Family that has been ‘growing’. The purpose of the plaques on the Tree of Life is to commemorate joyous occasions (like Bar/Bat Mitzvah, anniversaries, special birthdays, weddings etc.).

The donation is only $500 per plaque for the Memorial Board or $180 for the Tree of Life. Those who wish to participate should send an email to info@ChabadatLaCosta.com, or call Rabbi Eilfort at 760-943-8891.

Cell Phones & Chatting During Services

Needless to say the sanctuary on Shabbat or holidays is a place that must be conducive to reflective prayers and serenity. To help keep it this way, please refrain from engaging in any conversations during services and please do not bring in your cell phone. Thank you for your cooperation.

Shul Etiquette

Those who join us regularly for Shabbat services will agree that we have something very special going. The family-friendly atmosphere is unique and most inviting. We welcome everyone as though he/she is a long time member of the family.

At the same time it is important to remember that we are a synagogue. Our sanctuary is meant to be a place where it is conducive to finding inner peace and tranquility. That is why the Rabbis have many laws concerning the decorum of a shul.

It is appropriate to dress modestly and to dress somewhat formally in shul. Men should wear button down shirts, slacks (no jeans or shorts), with jackets and even ties when possible. Of course the head is to be kept covered at all times. Women should wear skirts that go past the knees and blouses with high neck lines and sleeves that cover the elbows. Married women should wear hats and the like.

Children must be supervised at all times by the parents except during Junior Congregation (11:30am). While we want the children to have a great time together it is also important that they do not become so wild and/or boisterous that they disturb those of us who are participating in the services.

We must remember that we should walk to shul and never park in the parking lot if there already eight cars parked. Finally, and we fully realize this goes against Jewish DNA, it is appropriate to come to shul ON TIME. While we know everyone is vying to be counted as the 10th, we are equally sure Hashem will give extra credit to those who come ON TIME at 10am (not to be confused with 11:30). We look forward to seeing you here!

Chabad Weekly Update - Sukkot

Message from the Rabbi
 

This is a busy time of year. There is so much to cram into the few days between Yom Kippur and Sukkot. We build a sukkah, purchase and prepare our lulav and etrog sets, and make sure that everything else is ready for the holiday, which our sages refer to as “the time of our rejoicing.”

What is so joyful about Sukkot? A lot of it had to do with an ancient ritual our ancestors would carry out in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, in which they would pour water onto the altar. The chassidic masters explain that the water celebration signifies a joy caused by a connection to G‑d so deep and so true that, like water, it has no describable taste. And like water, it sustains all life.

So let’s be happy, and bask in the loving embrace of the Sukkah with joy!

Chabad Weekly Update

Exciting Announcement

This year’s High Holiday services were truly uplifting as we enjoyed wonderful crowds including many new participants from our area (not to mention plenty of out of town guests). During services the shul’s president, Mr. Len Hyman, made an exciting announcement, which the Rabbi further elaborated upon.

When we were in the midst of building, which was completed three years ago, we took a five-year, $300,000 construction loan. Thank G-d, and many wonderful donors, we have managed to pay down our mortgage to about $50,000. We have been informed by our lender, the Meromim Chul Foundation, that the final $25,000 will be donated back if we can raise $25,000 at this time. That means that every donation towards the ‘Burn our Mortgage’ campaign will be matched dollar for dollar.

We must act now!

Thankfully, we received numerous generous pledges towards this aim on Yom Kippur, but we still must collect those pledges and more to meet our goal.

Will you help?

Mr. Hyman explained that we must be financially self-sufficient and that every dollar raised here is used here.

We are almost there!

Please respond generously to this tremendous opportunity to literally double the impact of every dollar you give. Donate securely online by following this link:

Be sure to mention in the note that the donation is for the ‘Burn the Mortgage’ campaign! 

Kiddush Sponsor

This week’s Shabbat Kiddush is sponsored by an anonymous friend of the shul in honor of the incredible High Holiday services.

The Kiddushes on the first two days of the Sukkot are sponsored by the Alter Family in honor of the Yarzeit of Poppy Milton Alter.

Please join us.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to join us for this enjoyable and delicious gathering.  

Kiddush Sponsorship

The Beauty of Our Kiddush

Every week following services we enjoy a beautiful Kiddush luncheon together. Such an amazing Kiddush doesn’t create itself. Thank G-d, we have a dedicated Kiddush crew, led by Naomi Alter and including Channah Hale, Sheila Lebovitz, the Rebbetzin, and several others, who make our Kiddush into something beautiful and enjoyable. But it takes more than willing hands to make the food. It also takes generous souls to sponsor the food. Without a sponsor the cost must come out of our operating budget, which is already stretched thin as it is.

If you have been a beneficiary of the Kiddush and haven’t sponsored it for a while please step forward now. Even if you have recently sponsored and kind find it in your heart to sponsor it again we need you. Kiddush sponsorship starts at $180. But if you want something a bit more lavish with more variety you can add to that amount, and it is all, very much, appreciated. It is also a very big blessing that you have facilitated ‘Oneg Shabbat’ (the enjoyment of Shabbos) for the entire congregation! Our Shabbat prayers describe the special blessings achieved by such generosity!

Thank you and G-d bless!

PLEASE BE SURE TO JOIN US AND PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

Looking Ahead…

Sukkot – The Time of Our Joy

To celebrate Sukkot, known as “The Time of Our Joy” (and we will show you why), we have created a very full schedule filled to overflowing with social events, community meals, and the most uplifting and meaningful services in town!

The holiday begins THIS coming Sunday night, and we will usher it in with style as we have joyous evening services followed by a sumptuous feast in our custom-built Sukkah with a view. Please make your reservations here (add link here). Our Sukkot Under the Stars event has become extremely popular, and for good reason.

On Monday and Tuesday not only will we celebrate with the Lulav and Etrog featured in the services, but we will enjoy lunch together in the Sukkah. We will also be holding our incredible Suktoberfest on Thursday, September 27th. Watch as we turn our Sukkah into a Beer Garden and enjoy the tastes of a traditional Octoberfest celebration.

Next week we kick the celebrations into an even higher gear as we celebrate Shmini Atzeret and Simchat Torah, where we dance with unlimited joy with our Torah Scrolls. The Perez family has again stepped forward to sponsor this amazing event and the banquet that follows the dancing. There is no charge to attend and these are the types of memories that children and adults will hold onto for a lifetime.

Please see our flier and full schedule below:

Remember, “Membership has its privileges!” Those who are already Members please accept our most sincere appreciation, and please send in your forms. There is no charge for members to attend High Holiday Services.

Dear Friends,

How do we teach our children, keep the lights on, hold services, give classes, share counsel, host guests, visit the sick, provide meals, and help the needy?

We are able to do these things by virtue of your support.

Can we count on you now, as we begin a new year?

We are asking our friends to please make a financial commitment to our Jewish Center, which serves as our spiritual home and sanctuary.

Can you pledge $50 per month, $100 per month, *$150 per month, $180 per month, or some other amount? The calculation is really quite simple; the more financial assistance you are able to provide the more services we can provide. It is important to note that we have no outside sources of revenue – we must be financially self-sufficient.

On the reverse of this page you will find our yearly commitment form. Consider an opportunity to invest in your Jewish home and the future of Judaism. You don’t have to wait to mail back your response. You can, right now, log onto our secure website and make a monthly commitment to our spiritual home for the present and future. www.chabadatlacosta.com/donate

Please be as generous as you can!

May you and your family be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life!

Sincerely,

Rabbi Yeruchem Eilfort

New Center Opening New Couple Joining the Team

Rabbi and Rebbetzin Yossi and Muka Rodal (together with baby Dovid) are joining the team! The Rodals will be moving to North Carlsbad so as to better serve the needs of our people, and find new people, in that area. Their focus will be on youth and senior activities! We are looking for a donation of a car in good working order. Check them out at www.chabadofcarlsbadnorth.com

Hebrew School & C-Kids Resume

Coastal Hebrew School has resumed in our newly renovated space at  7740-E El Camino Real , Carlsbad (our storefront location).

September 23 , Coastal Hebrew School will be hosting its first ever Sukkot Discovery Lab just for kids.

Blending hands-on, STEM-based experiments and creations with the how’s and why’s of this ancient Jewish hut in the desert, the Sukkot Discovery Lab launches a new year of CKids Club events in the heart of North County.

One of the first biblical holidays, Sukkot commemorates the divine protection the Jewish people experienced during their 40-year sojourn in the desert. Thousands of years later, Jews across the world continue to relive this event within the walls of a hand-built sukkah.

Children will gain a new insight into the mysterious qualities of Sukkot through the lens of science. Projects: Cloud Slime. STEM Sukkah-Building. Pop art Simchat Torah Flag!

The Discovery Lab is made possible by CKids Club—an initiative that inspires children to create meaningful impact in their communities through fun and educational programs that explore the richness of Judaism.

Designed for ages 5-13, the event will be held at our educational annex 7740E El Camnio Real on  September 23 from  10 am to Noon.

To unleash your child’s inner ‘mad scientist’, or to learn more information, please check out www.JewishEncinitas.com/CKids .

Hebrew School Registration

Give your children the Jewish education that they deserve! Our Sunday Hebrew School offers lots of hands-on activities and positive reinforcement. Students learn Hebrew language skills, Jewish living and observance, Jewish history, and so much more! We include arts & crafts, field trips, and holiday programming to make their experience even more enjoyable. Your child will have fun as he or she gains an appreciation for the ‘why’s and ‘how’s of Judaism. Our students want to be here!

Hebrew school is scheduled to begin on Sunday, September 2nd. Classes will continue to take place at our newly renovated Educational Annex, 7740-E El Camino Real. Please contact our Hebrew School Director, Morah Chaya Eilfort for info at info@ChabadatLaCosta.com , or log onto www.CoastalHebrewSchool.com.

Work with Me! A New Way for New Parents to Get Work Done

We are excited to announce the opening of Work with Me! Conceived of and designed by our own Rebbetzin Chaya Eilfort with assistance from Rabbi Elia Eilfort and Rebbetzin Nechama Eilfort, Work with Me is a place where parents with little ones can go to get work done.

We have completely refurbished and updated our Educational Annex, 7740-E El Camino Real, making it into a space where ‘stay-at-home’ working parents can share space with others in like circumstances. What makes our space special is the assistance we will offer with the little ones.

The plan includes having several designated private desks, a long bar counter table facing the wall, and a high-rise sit/stand table in the middle of the space. There will also be a couple of cozy work nooks, a nursing lounge, a restroom with changing table, a printer/copier, access to a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, and Wifi.

The area for the children will feature a baby zone, a soft play climbing area with ball pit and slide, a quiet reading corner, a train table, manipulative toy zone, and an art zone. We also hope to incorporate a chalk wall, a magnet wall, and a Lego wall.

Regarding pricing there will be hourly, daily, and monthly plans available, affording the customer maximum flexibility. This will enable her to just drop in, stay for a day, or using this space as her regular work space.

Haftarah Overview

By Gabbai Harold Reisman

1st Day of Sukkot -  Zachariah 14:1-21

All the Haftarat of Sukkot express the interweaving of the material and the spiritual and speak to redemption of Israel as well as all nations of the world. Zachariah has a vision of the "Day of the Lord", culminating in spiritual purity and worldwide pilgrimage. The Haftarah predicts tumultuous earthly phenomena and apocalyptic changes in nature. Hashem directs and controls all the workings of natural forces. The last section of the Haftarah describes the coronation of Hashem as King of all creation; all mankind accepts His rule. This harkens to the blessing given to Abraham (Gen. 12:3) "...in you shall all the nations of the Earth be blessed". The Haftarat of Succot discuss the expressions of the holiday - the interweaving of the material and the spiritual, that is complete universality - and of thanks and redemption for all the nations of the world.

 

2nd Day of Sukkot

 

I Kings 8:2-21

 

This Haftarah is the same as the one read on Parashat Pekudei. There is a direct connection between the consecration of Solomon's Temple and Sukkot. The consecration was made on Sukkot. The spiritual connection between the Haftarah and Sukkot lies in the overflow of great joy - of holy simcha - that describes the Temple as a physical manifestation of the connection between Israel and Hashem. The joy of Sukkot reflects thanks to Hashem but also an expression of faith that heavenly protection and goodness will continue to flow. We must continue to acknowledge the unlimited goodness and blessings of Hashem and, just as important, we must continue to give thanks for His ongoing beneficence.

 

Classes Cancelled this Week due to the Holiday - Weekly Class Schedule

Wednesday: Torah Portion of the Week cancelled

A Comm-Unity for You (and Me)

 

Belonging to a Jewish Community is not only gratifying and fulfilling it is also extremely important, for within the community one finds a place to connect with G-d and one’s soul, a place of learning and spiritual enrichment, a great source of friends, a place to bestow one’s Jewish legacy upon his or her child/ren, and so much more. Check out www.ChabadatLaCosta.com to learn more. 

 

The beauty of OUR Jewish Community is that we offer so many different options that everyone is sure to find something enriching and meaningful. Below please find a partial list of some of our current offerings. If you have never come by before pick an item or two and try it out. If you have already tried an item or two find another one that sounds interesting and give it a whirl. “Connection” – that is the name of the game and that is precisely what you will find here!

Need a Minyan?

If you need a Minyan to say Kaddish please give the office at least a few days’ notice. We are happy to provide this important service, but it takes time to arrange enough participants to assure the quorum is present. Please emailinfo@ChabadatLaCosta.com your request.

Create Your Jewish Legacy Plan for the Future - NOW

 

We have been blessed with life! Yet, we know that no one lives forever. This begs the question, “What will be your legacy?” Most of us have children, and they certainly should figure prominently into our plans. But our children are only a part of what we leave behind. Just as we endeavor to give Tzedakah generously, so as to selflessly make the world a better place while we are alive, so too we need to make sure that we leave a percentage of our estates for the benefit of others. Judaism tells us that it is incumbent upon us to leave the world better than when we found it. We do this by giving Tzedakah.

 

We can help.

 

 Many people do not prepare appropriately for the inevitable. They do not leave a will, or even if they do it is not consistent with Jewish Law. If one wants his body to be handled with the respect and care mandated by Jewish Law or if one wants the funeral service conducted according to Jewish Law, it must be arranged in advance. Don’t leave these critical details to luck!

 

Contact Rabbi Eilfort for a private appointment so these important matters can be handled how you want. Send a personal email toRabbiE@ChabadatLaCosta.com to schedule an appointment today.

 

Shabbat Services with Meaning & Joy

Every Saturday we get together to celebrate the holy Shabbat in song and prayer. Our services are both traditional and user-friendly, as we fully recognize that not everyone has experience ‘Davening’ (praying) in a traditional setting. What those who have joined have found is that the atmosphere in our synagogue is conducive to meaningful meditation. A knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary to participate. In fact, the only thing that is needed is the desire to learn and to connect to the Almighty. It is an enriching experience not to be missed! Shabbat services begin at 10am and conclude at approximately 12:30pm and are followed by a wonderful community lunch. There is no cost to attend and reservations are not needed.

Hebrew School - Hebrew School THIS WEEK

Give your children the Jewish education that they deserve! Our Sunday Hebrew School offers lots of hands-on activities and positive reinforcement. Students learn Hebrew language skills, Jewish living and observance, Jewish history, and so much more! We include arts & crafts, field trips, and holiday programming to make their experience even more enjoyable. Your child will have fun as he or she gains an appreciation for the ‘why’s and ‘how’s of Judaism. Our students want to be here!

Omni La Costa Resort Welcomes Chabad at La Costa Guests

We are pleased that our world-famous neighbor, the Omni La Costa Resort, has extended a special program offering all sorts of perks to those who book using the ‘Chabad’ code when booking. The special terms include the lowest room rate available, a reduced resort fee of $15.00 (normally $28.00) and complimentary self-parking (savings of $18.00 per car per day).  The resort’s deposit requirement is waived for Chabad guests as well as the three-day cancellation policy.  Chadad guests may cancel until 6pm on the day of arrival to avoid a charge of one night’s room and tax.

To book your room at the special Chabad rate, call toll-free 800-854-5000 or book online at  http://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/san-diego-la-costa/meetings/chabad.  Or you can find more information or book through our website: www.ChabadatLaCosta.com. Follow the link for Visitor Information.

 

To date more than 450 people have used the Chabad code this past year (2017)! Many people have expressed gratitude at having such world-class facilities in such close and convenient proximity to our Shul, and the joy at being to stay at the Omni and walk to Chabad for Shabbat services.

 

Memorial Plaques & Tree of Life Plaques Available

Our beautiful Memorial Boards have been installed. We specifically designed our custom-built bookcases to ‘frame’ each of the boards. The first Memorial Board was dedicated by the Brunelle Family and the new Board was dedicated by the Alter Family.

We are currently offering Memorial Plaques to those who wish to perpetually honor the memory of a loved one in a most dignified and permanent manner. Those who dedicate Memorial Plaques will also receive yearly reminders of the Yarzeit and the light on the Board will be illuminated each year on the Yarzeit.

We also have a gorgeous Tree of Life dedicated by the Lieberman Family that has been ‘growing’. The purpose of the plaques on the Tree of Life is to commemorate joyous occasions (like Bar/Bat Mitzvah, anniversaries, special birthdays, weddings etc.).

The donation is only $500 per plaque for the Memorial Board or $180 for the Tree of Life. Those who wish to participate should send an email toinfo@ChabadatLaCosta.com , or call Rabbi Eilfort at 760-943-8891.

Cell Phones & Chatting During Services

Needless to say the sanctuary on Shabbat or holidays is a place that must be conducive to reflective prayers and serenity. To help keep it this way, please refrain from engaging in any conversations during services and please do not bring in your cell phone. Thank you for your cooperation.

Shul Etiquette

Those who join us regularly for Shabbat services will agree that we have something very special going. The family-friendly atmosphere is unique and most inviting. We welcome everyone as though he/she is a long time member of the family.

At the same time it is important to remember that we are a synagogue. Our sanctuary is meant to be a place where it is conducive to finding inner peace and tranquility. That is why the Rabbis have many laws concerning the decorum of a shul.

It is appropriate to dress modestly and to dress somewhat formally in shul. Men should wear button down shirts, slacks (no jeans or shorts), with jackets and even ties when possible. Of course the head is to be kept covered at all times. Women should wear skirts that go past the knees and blouses with high neck lines and sleeves that cover the elbows. Married women should wear hats and the like.

Children must be supervised at all times by the parents except during Junior Congregation (11:30am). While we want the children to have a great time together it is also important that they do not become so wild and/or boisterous that they disturb those of us who are participating in the services.

We must remember that we should walk to shul and never park in the parking lot if there already eight cars parked. Finally, and we fully realize this goes against Jewish DNA, it is appropriate to come to shul ON TIME. While we know everyone is vying to be counted as the 10th, we are equally sure Hashem will give extra credit to those who come ON TIME at 10am (not to be confused with 11:30). We look forward to seeing you here!

Weekly Update Volume 20 Number 1 September 14, 2018, Tishrei 5, 5779

Message from the Rabbi

As Yom Kippur approaches, it is a time to take account of our deeds and right any wrongs.

We have a chance to find those we may have offended (something that is all too easy in the digital era, when a sharp text, IM, or Tweet can be sent almost instantly to someone halfway across the world) and ask for forgiveness.

Yom Kippur, however, is more than just a day for repentance. After Selichot, Rosh Hashanah and the 10 Days of Repentance, one may wonder: what more is there to do? Have not all the words been said and all the apologies before man and G‑d been made?

Yom Kippur allows us delve deeper into our very essence. Each of the five prayers of the 25 hours of Yom Kippur allows us to dig deeper into our character. Like the layers of an onion, we can peel back one level to reveal another. Until, during the Neilah prayer, we stand alone before the Almighty G‑d. All layers have been removed and our essence stands bare, in the ecstatic union with the essence of the Creator.

We are one and our Creator is one.

One day, one people, one essence.

May we all be sealed for a year of sweetness and revealed good in all matters.

Rabbi Eilfort

Volume 20 Number 1 September 14, 2018, Tishrei 5,5778
 
Chabad Weekly Update

Wishing Everyone a G’mar Chasima Tovah & Shanah Tovah!

May you and your entire family be sealed in the Book of Life for a happy, healthy, and successful New Year! May G-d’s manifold blessings come to you in abundance! And may you experience a year of great fulfillment and growth in your holy, spiritual pursuits!

Kiddush Sponsor

This week’s Kiddush is sponsored by the Reh Family in loving memory of Edith Reh, upon her Yarzeit.

Please join us.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to join us for this enjoyable and delicious gathering.  

Kiddush Sponsorship

The Beauty of Our Kiddush

Every week following services we enjoy a beautiful Kiddush luncheon together. Such an amazing Kiddush doesn’t create itself. Thank G-d, we have a dedicated Kiddush crew, led by Naomi Alter and including Channah Hale, Sheila Lebovitz, the Rebbetzin, and several others, who make our Kiddush into something beautiful and enjoyable. But it takes more than willing hands to make the food. It also takes generous souls to sponsor the food. Without a sponsor the cost must come out of our operating budget, which is already stretched thin as it is.

If you have been a beneficiary of the Kiddush and haven’t sponsored it for a while please step forward now. Even if you have recently sponsored and kind find it in your heart to sponsor it again we need you. Kiddush sponsorship starts at $180. But if you want something a bit more lavish with more variety you can add to that amount, and it is all, very much, appreciated. It is also a very big blessing that you have facilitated ‘Oneg Shabbat’ (the enjoyment of Shabbos) for the entire congregation! Our Shabbat prayers describe the special blessings achieved by such generosity!

Thank you and G-d bless!

PLEASE BE SURE TO JOIN US AND PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

Looking Ahead…

Yom Kippur Begins Tuesday Night, September 18th

We will be offering a full High Holiday experience this year! Please see our full schedule below.

High Holiday Reservations REQUIRED for Security Purposes

If you plan on joining us for the High Holidays (and we certainly hope you do) you MUST fill out the reservation form found by following this link:   Members | Guests

High Holidays for Kids

We are offering our popular Camp High Holidays for the children that will be enriching, fun, and safely supervised. This gives parents the opportunity to sit in the sanctuary and pray knowing their children are safe and happy. Conversely, parents are welcome to keep their children with them, but we ask that they are closely supervised and quiet.

Community Holiday Meal Offered on Erev Yom Kippur

A meal is being offered on Erev Yom Kippur. Due to space restrictions we are only accepting a limited number of reservations. The cost to participate in the meal is $25 per meal (adults 13+) and $18 per child (3-12). Reservations and pre-payment are a must. Please visit our website for further details. Meal RSVP

Yom Kippur Honors

During Yom Kippur people enjoy the added blessings of having or sponsoring an honor. In fact, Aliyahs on the High Holidays is considered one of the greatest honors of the year. Shuls around the world raise huge percentages of their yearly budget by auctioning off these Mitzvos.

Why do people spend so lavishly?

Because we know that the Day of Atonement is upon us, and that Tzedakah (charity) is the most effective way to avert an evil decree.

Those who would like the great Mitzvah of having an honor on Yom Kippur should immediately contact the shul by email so arrangements can be made. This will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. info@chabadatlacosta.com. or use our online form here.

This Year’s Break the Fast Dedicated as a Special Thank You to Our Volunteers

There is a group of people who help make everything work for our community. They volunteer many hours of their time for the pure and simple reason that they know what it takes to make a community like our thrive; and that is participation! The list of volunteers is too long to mention by name. Of course we have Naomi Alter’s team that helps with the weekly Kiddush. Other examples are the BBQ Bounty Team (including Sheila, Channah, Michael etc.) who, by their efforts, make the summer season a joy (and profitable) for our community. Thank you one and all! We will thank our volunteers at this year’s Break the Fast at the end of Yom Kippur.

We are able to do these things by virtue of your support.

Can we count on you now, as we begin a new year?

We are asking our friends to please make a financial commitment to our Jewish Center, which serves as our spiritual home and sanctuary.

Can you pledge $50 per month, $100 per month, *$150 per month, $180 per month, or some other amount? The calculation is really quite simple; the more financial assistance you are able to provide the more services we can provide. It is important to note that we have no outside sources of revenue – we must be financially self-sufficient.

On the reverse of this page you will find our yearly commitment form. Consider an opportunity to invest in your Jewish home and the future of Judaism. You don’t have to wait to mail back your response. You can, right now, log onto our secure website and make a monthly commitment to our spiritual home for the present and future. www.chabadatlacosta.com/donate

Please be as generous as you can!

May you and your family be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life!

Sincerely,

Rabbi Yeruchem Eilfort

PS Those who make a monthly commitment of at least $150 or a yearly commitment of at least $1,800 will be part of our newly forming ‘Chai Club’. There will be quarterly special events, like gourmet meals, a special display and other ‘perks’ to acknowledge our Chai Club members.

New Center Opening New Couple Joining the Team

Rabbi and Rebbetzin Yossi and Muka Rodal (together with baby Dovid) are joining the team! The Rodals will be moving to North Carlsbad so as to better serve the needs of our people, and find new people, in that area. Their focus will be on youth and senior activities! We are looking for a donation of a car in good working order.

Hebrew School & C-Kids Resume

This past Sunday Coastal Hebrew School resumed in our newly renovated space.  7740-E El Camino Real, Carlsbad (our storefront location).

This coming Sunday, September 16th from 9:30am – 12pm Hebrew School continues.

September 23 , Coastal Hebrew School will be hosting its first ever Sukkot Discovery Lab just for kids.

Blending hands-on, STEM-based experiments and creations with the how’s and why’s of this ancient Jewish hut in the desert, the Sukkot Discovery Lab launches a new year of CKids Club events in the heart of North County.

One of the first biblical holidays, Sukkot commemorates the divine protection the Jewish people experienced during their 40-year sojourn in the desert. Thousands of years later, Jews across the world continue to relive this event within the walls of a hand-built sukkah.

Children will gain a new insight into the mysterious qualities of Sukkot through the lens of science. Projects: Cloud Slime. STEM Sukkah-Building. Pop art Simchat Torah Flag!

The Discovery Lab is made possible by CKids Club—an initiative that inspires children to create meaningful impact in their communities through fun and educational programs that explore the richness of Judaism.

Designed for ages 5-13, the event will be held at our educational annex 7740E El Camnio Real on September 23 from 10 am to Noon.

Work with Me! A New Way for New Parents to Get Work Done

We are excited to announce the opening of Work with Me! Conceived of and designed by our own Rebbetzin Chaya Eilfort with assistance from Rabbi Elia Eilfort and Rebbetzin Nechama Eilfort, Work with Me is a place where parents with little ones can go to get work done.

We have completely refurbished and updated our Educational Annex, 7740-E El Camino Real, making it into a space where ‘stay-at-home’ working parents can share space with others in like circumstances. What makes our space special is the assistance we will offer with the little ones.

The plan includes having several designated private desks, a long bar counter table facing the wall, and a high-rise sit/stand table in the middle of the space. There will also be a couple of cozy work nooks, a nursing lounge, a restroom with changing table, a printer/copier, access to a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, and Wifi.

The area for the children will feature a baby zone, a soft play climbing area with ball pit and slide, a quiet reading corner, a train table, manipulative toy zone, and an art zone. We also hope to incorporate a chalk wall, a magnet wall, and a Lego wall.

Regarding pricing there will be hourly, daily, and monthly plans available, affording the customer maximum flexibility. This will enable her to just drop in, stay for a day, or using this space as her regular work space.

To get a better idea check out www.TheWorkWithMe.com.

Help Us Burn the Mortgage

We are nearly there. We only owe $55,000 left on our mortgage. Once that is paid off we own our building free and clear! We are kicking off a campaign to Burn the Mortgage! Can you help us achieve our goal? Every dollar we can save from making mortgage payments can be used instead to offer ever-more programs to benefit the community. Every dollar that comes in stays here and works for our community. If you are able to help us burn our mortgage please call the Rabbi for an appointment. G-d bless you for your generosity!

Will YOU Join the Family & Invest in the Jewish Present & Future?

Haftarah Overview

By Gabbai Harold Reisman


Shabbat Shuva

Hosea 12:2-10 + Micah 7:18-20 + Joel 2:15-17

This Shabbat is a special day and so a rarity occurs. Multiple selections from the prophetic literature are read - all discuss repentance. Hosea calls for return (teshuvah is a turning); the word shuvah gives this Shabbat its name. Finally in verse 10: worship of the Eternal is Israel's true and only hope. Micah's message is one we know and try to internalize: Hashem stands ready to forgive and Divine love is unbounded...if only we return to what is valid and eternal. The word "tashlich" (casting of sins) appears in verse 19. Joel paints a glorious picture of an entire people returning to the words and commands of Hashem - this will cause a reciprocal response from on high. The final sentence promises, "My people shall never again be put to shame."

The rabbis say that repentance was created before the world was created. Its importance is manifest but it requires great personal effort. We can all pray for strength to succeed in this effort.


Classes Cancelled this Week due to the Holiday - Weekly Class Schedule

Wednesday: Torah Portion of the Week cancelled

Wednesday: Chasidic Philosophy cancelled

A Comm-Unity for You (and Me)


Belonging to a Jewish Community is not only gratifying and fulfilling it is also extremely important, for within the community one finds a place to connect with G-d and one’s soul, a place of learning and spiritual enrichment, a great source of friends, a place to bestow one’s Jewish legacy upon his or her child/ren, and so much more. Check out www.ChabadatLaCosta.com to learn more. 


The beauty of OUR Jewish Community is that we offer so many different options that everyone is sure to find something enriching and meaningful. Below please find a partial list of some of our current offerings. If you have never come by before pick an item or two and try it out. If you have already tried an item or two find another one that sounds interesting and give it a whirl. “Connection” – that is the name of the game and that is precisely what you will find here!

Need a Minyan?

If you need a Minyan to say Kaddish please give the office at least a few days’ notice. We are happy to provide this important service, but it takes time to arrange enough participants to assure the quorum is present. Please email info@ChabadatLaCosta.com your request.

Create Your Jewish Legacy Plan for the Future - NOW


We have been blessed with life! Yet, we know that no one lives forever. This begs the question, “What will be your legacy?” Most of us have children, and they certainly should figure prominently into our plans. But our children are only a part of what we leave behind. Just as we endeavor to give Tzedakah generously, so as to selflessly make the world a better place while we are alive, so too we need to make sure that we leave a percentage of our estates for the benefit of others. Judaism tells us that it is incumbent upon us to leave the world better than when we found it. We do this by giving Tzedakah.


We can help.


Many people do not prepare appropriately for the inevitable. They do not leave a will, or even if they do it is not consistent with Jewish Law. If one wants his body to be handled with the respect and care mandated by Jewish Law or if one wants the funeral service conducted according to Jewish Law, it must be arranged in advance. Don’t leave these critical details to luck!


Contact Rabbi Eilfort for a private appointment so these important matters can be handled how you want. Send a personal email to RabbiE@ChabadatLaCosta.com to schedule an appointment today.


Shabbat Services with Meaning & Joy

Every Saturday we get together to celebrate the holy Shabbat in song and prayer. Our services are both traditional and user-friendly, as we fully recognize that not everyone has experience ‘Davening’ (praying) in a traditional setting. What those who have joined have found is that the atmosphere in our synagogue is conducive to meaningful meditation. A knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary to participate. In fact, the only thing that is needed is the desire to learn and to connect to the Almighty. It is an enriching experience not to be missed! Shabbat services begin at 10am and conclude at approximately 12:30pm and are followed by a wonderful community lunch. There is no cost to attend and reservations are not needed.

Hebrew School - Hebrew School THIS WEEK

Give your children the Jewish education that they deserve! Our Sunday Hebrew School offers lots of hands-on activities and positive reinforcement. Students learn Hebrew language skills, Jewish living and observance, Jewish history, and so much more! We include arts & crafts, field trips, and holiday programming to make their experience even more enjoyable.

Omni La Costa Resort Welcomes Chabad at La Costa Guests

We are pleased that our world-famous neighbor, the Omni La Costa Resort, has extended a special program offering all sorts of perks to those who book using the ‘Chabad’ code when booking. The special terms include the lowest room rate available, a reduced resort fee of $15.00 (normally $28.00) and complimentary self-parking (savings of $18.00 per car per day).  The resort’s deposit requirement is waived for Chabad guests as well as the three-day cancellation policy.  Chadad guests may cancel until 6pm on the day of arrival to avoid a charge of one night’s room and tax.

To book your room at the special Chabad rate, call toll-free 800-854-5000 or book online at  http://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/san-diego-la-costa/meetings/chabad.  Or you can find more information or book through our website: www.ChabadatLaCosta.com. Follow the link for Visitor Information.


To date more than 450 people have used the Chabad code this past year (2017)! Many people have expressed gratitude at having such world-class facilities in such close and convenient proximity to our Shul, and the joy at being to stay at the Omni and walk to Chabad for Shabbat services.


Memorial Plaques & Tree of Life Plaques Available

Our beautiful Memorial Boards have been installed. We specifically designed our custom-built bookcases to ‘frame’ each of the boards. The first Memorial Board was dedicated by the Brunelle Family and the new Board was dedicated by the Alter Family.

We are currently offering Memorial Plaques to those who wish to perpetually honor the memory of a loved one in a most dignified and permanent manner. Those who dedicate Memorial Plaques will also receive yearly reminders of the Yarzeit and the light on the Board will be illuminated each year on the Yarzeit.

We also have a gorgeous Tree of Life dedicated by the Lieberman Family that has been ‘growing’. The purpose of the plaques on the Tree of Life is to commemorate joyous occasions (like Bar/Bat Mitzvah, anniversaries, special birthdays, weddings etc.).

The donation is only $500 per plaque for the Memorial Board or $180 for the Tree of Life. Those who wish to participate should send an email to info@ChabadatLaCosta.com, or call Rabbi Eilfort at 760-943-8891.

Cell Phones & Chatting During Services

Needless to say the sanctuary on Shabbat or holidays is a place that must be conducive to reflective prayers and serenity. To help keep it this way, please refrain from engaging in any conversations during services and please do not bring in your cell phone. Thank you for your cooperation.

Shul Etiquette

Those who join us regularly for Shabbat services will agree that we have something very special going. The family-friendly atmosphere is unique and most inviting. We welcome everyone as though he/she is a long time member of the family.

At the same time it is important to remember that we are a synagogue. Our sanctuary is meant to be a place where it is conducive to finding inner peace and tranquility. That is why the Rabbis have many laws concerning the decorum of a shul.

It is appropriate to dress modestly and to dress somewhat formally in shul. Men should wear button down shirts, slacks (no jeans or shorts), with jackets and even ties when possible. Of course the head is to be kept covered at all times. Women should wear skirts that go past the knees and blouses with high neck lines and sleeves that cover the elbows. Married women should wear hats and the like.

Children must be supervised at all times by the parents except during Junior Congregation (11:30am). While we want the children to have a great time together it is also important that they do not become so wild and/or boisterous that they disturb those of us who are participating in the services.

We must remember that we should walk to shul and never park in the parking lot if there already eight cars parked. Finally, and we fully realize this goes against Jewish DNA, it is appropriate to come to shul ON TIME. While we know everyone is vying to be counted as the 10th, we are equally sure Hashem will give extra credit to those who come ON TIME at 10am (not to be confused with 11:30). We look forward to seeing you here!

Volume 19 Number 49 Sept. 6, 2018 Elul 26, 5778

Message from the Rabbi

 

There’s no getting around it. Rosh Hashanah is fast approaching. Rabbis all over the world are fine-tuning their speeches; cantors are rehearsing the prayers; and the organized homemakers among us already have pans of tzimmes, brisket and more stacked in the freezer.

But the most important thing to prepare is the shofar-blowing. After all, that is the central mitzvah of the holiday. Obviously, the best place to hear shofar is during services, among fellow Jews. But what if you know someone who is unable to leave home, or someone who does not feel connected enough to come to shul? The Rebbe encouraged that we visit these Jews (provided that they are within walking distance) and blow shofar for them. Do you know someone who can use a “housecall”? Please let me know ASAP so that arrangements can be made.

I trust that you are busy with your holiday preparations, but I do want to take a moment to thank you. It’s been a very special year, and that was thanks to each and every one of you. Every individual adds so much to our community, bringing a special flavor and contribution that is uniquely their own.

Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Rabbi Yeruchem Eilfort

Chabad Weekly Update

Wishing Everyone a Kesivah V’Chasima Tovah & Shanah Tovah!

May you and your entire family be written and sealed in the Book of Life for a happy, healthy, and successful New Year! May G-d’s manifold blessings come to you in abundance! And may you experience a year of great fulfillment and growth in your holy, spiritual pursuits!

Kiddush Sponsor

This week’s Kiddush is sponsored by the Eilfort Family in honor of the birthday of the Rebbetzin, Nechama Eilfort.

Please join us in celebration!

Everyone is invited and encouraged to join us for this enjoyable and delicious gathering.  

Kiddush Sponsorship

The Beauty of Our Kiddush

Every week following services we enjoy a beautiful Kiddush luncheon together. Such an amazing Kiddush doesn’t create itself. Thank G-d, we have a dedicated Kiddush crew, led by Naomi Alter and including Channah Hale, Sheila Lebovitz, the Rebbetzin, and several others, who make our Kiddush into something beautiful and enjoyable. But it takes more than willing hands to make the food. It also takes generous souls to sponsor the food. Without a sponsor the cost must come out of our operating budget, which is already stretched thin as it is.

If you have been a beneficiary of the Kiddush and haven’t sponsored it for a while please step forward now. Even if you have recently sponsored and kind find it in your heart to sponsor it again we need you. Kiddush sponsorship starts at $180. But if you want something a bit more lavish with more variety you can add to that amount, and it is all, very much, appreciated. It is also a very big blessing that you have facilitated ‘Oneg Shabbat’ (the enjoyment of Shabbos) for the entire congregation! Our Shabbat prayers describe the special blessings achieved by such generosity!

Thank you and G-d bless!

PLEASE BE SURE TO JOIN US AND PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

Looking Ahead…

High Holidays Begin THIS Sunday Night

We will be offering a full High Holiday experience this year! Rosh Hashanah begins Sunday evening. Please see our full schedule below.

High Holiday Reservations REQUIRED for Security Purposes

If you plan on joining us for the High Holidays (and we certainly hope you do) you MUST fill out the reservation form found by following this link: MemberRSVP

High Holidays for Kids

Rebbetzin Chaya will be conducting a special Mommy & Me Rosh Hashanah Edition (please see attached flyer found below).

In addition; we are offering our popular Camp High Holidays for the children that will be enriching, fun, and safely supervised. This gives parents the opportunity to sit in the sanctuary and pray knowing their children are safe and happy. Conversely, parents are welcome to keep their children with them, but we ask that they are closely supervised and quiet. Please find Camp High Holiday schedule on our website. 

 

Community Holiday Meals Offered on  Rosh Hashanah & Erev Yom Kippur

This year community holiday meals will be offered throughout Rosh Hashanah, including dinner both evenings. Both days’ beautiful Kiddushes will be sponsored by the Alter and Loven Familes. An additional meal is being offered on Erev Yom Kippur. Due to space restrictions we are only accepting a limited number of reservations. The cost to participate in the meals is $25 per meal (adults 13+) and $18 per child (3-12). Reservations and pre-payment are a must. Please visit our website for further details. RSVPhere

High Holiday Honors

During the High Holiday Season people enjoy the added blessings of having or sponsoring an honor. In fact, Aliyas on the High Holidays is considered one of the greatest honors of the year. Shuls around the world raise huge percentages of their yearly budget by auctioning off these Mitzvos.

Why do you people spend so lavishly?

Because we know that the Day of Judgement and the Day of Atonement are upon us, and that Tzedakah (charity) is the most effective way to avert an evil decree.

Those who would like the great Mitzvah of having an honor on the High Holidays should immediately contact the shul by email so arrangements can be made. This will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.info@chabadatlacosta.com.

High Holiday Retreat

Chabad at La Costa, in conjunction with the fabulous Omni La Costa Resort, is offering a High Holiday retreat. Features of the Retreat include deeply discounted room rates at the resort, reserved seats at our uplifting and meaningful services, gourmet holiday meals, children’s programming, all in the comfort and beauty of our beautiful building. Participation is limited to the first 50 respondents, so immediate reservations are highly recommended. Complete details, including the hotel booking code may be found on our website; Here for non local guests and HERE for local residents.

This Year’s Break the Fast Dedicated as  A Special Thank You to Our Volunteers

There is a group of people who help make everything work for our community. They volunteer many hours of their time for the pure and simple reason that they know what it takes to make a community like our thrive; and that is participation! The list of volunteers is too long to mention by name. Of course we have Naomi Alter’s team that helps with the weekly Kiddush. Other examples are the BBQ Bounty Team (including Sheila, Channah, Michael etc.) who, by their efforts, make the summer season a joy (and profitable) for our community. Thank you one and all! We will thank our volunteers at this year’s Break the Fast at the end of Yom Kippur.

Work with Me!

A New Way for New Parents to Get Work Done

We are excited to announce the opening of Work with Me! Conceived of and designed by our own Rebbetzin Chaya Eilfort with assistance from Rabbi Elia Eilfort and Rebbetzin Nechama Eilfort, Work with Me is a place where parents with little ones can go to get work done.

We have completely refurbished and updated our Educational Annex, 7740-E El Camino Real, making it into a space where ‘stay-at-home’ working parents can share space with others in like circumstances. What makes our space special is the assistance we will offer with the little ones.

The plan includes having several designated private desks, a long bar counter table facing the wall, and a high-rise sit/stand table in the middle of the space. There will also be a couple of cozy work nooks, a nursing lounge, a restroom with changing table, a printer/copier, access to a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, and Wifi.

The area for the children will feature a baby zone, a soft play climbing area with ball pit and slide, a quiet reading corner, a train table, manipulative toy zone, and an art zone. We also hope to incorporate a chalk wall, a magnet wall, and a Lego wall.

Regarding pricing there will be hourly, daily, and monthly plans available, affording the customer maximum flexibility. This will enable her to just drop in, stay for a day, or using this space as her regular work space.

Help Us Burn the Mortgage

We are nearly there. We only owe $55,000 left on our mortgage. Once that is paid off we own our building free and clear! We are kicking off a campaign to Burn the Mortgage! Can you help us achieve our goal? Every dollar we can save from making mortgage payments can be used instead to offer ever-more programs to benefit the community. Every dollar that comes in stays hereand works for our community. If you are able to help us burn our mortgage please call the Rabbi for an appointment. G-d bless you for your generosity!

New Torah Portion Class Schedule

Please note that we will be starting the Wednesday evening Torah Portion class at 6:45pm (instead of 7pm), as we have found the one-hour format too short. We will spend the first part of the class with the Rabbi discussing certain points based upon his notes and answer questions relating to those points. Then he will entertain other questions related to the portion. If there is still time after that point he will try to address general questions that the participants may have. There is no charge for this class. Students are urged to bring paper and pen so they can take notes.

Haftarah Overview

By Gabbai Harold Reisman

Shabbat Parshat Nitzavim Isaiah  61:10-63:9

Just as Rosh Hashanah is at hand, we arrive at the season of hope and repentance. "You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Eternal, a royal diadem in the palm of Hashem" (v. 61:3). In the Haftarah, there exists the difficult concept that Hashem is vulnerable and suffers when Israel suffers (or disobeys). Hashem is seemingly afflicted when Israel struggles. Therefore we read further (v. 63:8) "Hashem said: They alone are My people, children who will not be false to Me. So Hashem became their Savior." How can we "not be false"? By understanding the concept of true Teshuvah/return to Hashem and acting upon that comprehension within our own minds and hearts. If not at this season and at this time, then when?

1st Day of Rosh Hashanah I Samuel 1:1-2:10

It appears that the Haftarah has two parts: the birth of Samuel followed by the Song of Hannah. The themes of remembrance and spiritual desires are followed by a hymn to Hashem's mercy with hopes for the future. The story of a barren woman is repeated in the Tanach; in all cases (even Sarah who was very old) a miraculous birth occurs - perhaps above and beyond nature due to Hashem's intervention. The story is a prompt for each of us to remember our spiritual failures and unfulfilled hopes. The Song of Hannah is one of the Ten Songs that cover the history of the world. This song (as the others) reminds us of the ways of Divine Providence. When the past has been difficult and the future seems bleak, the Haftarah and similar histories teach that deep and true belief and sincere prayer can turn ominous negatives into a hopeful and glorious future.

2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah Jeremiah 31:1-19

In this Haftarah, the prophet is a comforter of Israel and brings a calm solace as well as important promises of redemption. The readings for the day emphasize the remembrances of Hashem to Father Abraham. Further, prayers of the day emphasize human accountability. The prophet in the Haftarah compares human beings as parents in a way similar to our own responsibilities to the Father in Heaven. We can appreciate the love of Hashem for Israel as a parallel to our love as parents. Just as we forgive, we can pray and act in a way to merit the forgiveness that we earnestly pray for today. In the Haftarah, Ephraim's repentance is followed by the ingathering of the exiles. The word teshuvah means "repentance" but also means "return".

The path is there and is visible or understandable. The choice to recognize and take the proper path belongs to each individual...at each hour of every day.

A Comm-Unity for You (and Me)

 

Belonging to a Jewish Community is not only gratifying and fulfilling it is also extremely important, for within the community one finds a place to connect with G-d and one’s soul, a place of learning and spiritual enrichment, a great source of friends, a place to bestow one’s Jewish legacy upon his or her child/ren, and so much more. Check out www.ChabadatLaCosta.com to learn more. 

 

The beauty of OUR Jewish Community is that we offer so many different options that everyone is sure to find something enriching and meaningful. Below please find a partial list of some of our current offerings. If you have never come by before pick an item or two and try it out. If you have already tried an item or two find another one that sounds interesting and give it a whirl. “Connection” – that is the name of the game and that is precisely what you will find here!

Create Your Jewish Legacy

Plan for the Future - NOW

 

We have been blessed with life! Yet, we know that no one lives forever. This begs the question, “What will beyour legacy?” Most of us have children, and they certainly should figure prominently into our plans. But our children are only a part of what we leave behind. Just as we endeavor to give Tzedakah generously, so as to selflessly make the world a better place while we are alive, so too we need to make sure that we leave a percentage of our estates for the benefit of others. Judaism tells us that it is incumbent upon us to leave the world better than when we found it. We do this by giving Tzedakah.

 

We can help.

 

Many people do not prepare appropriately for the inevitable. They do not leave a will, or even if they do it is not consistent with Jewish Law. If one wants his body to be handled with the respect and care mandated by Jewish Law or if one wants the funeral service conducted according to Jewish Law, it must be arranged in advance. Don’t leave these critical details to luck!

 

Contact Rabbi Eilfort for a private appointment so these important matters can be handled how you want. Send a personal email to RabbiE@ChabadatLaCosta.com to schedule an appointment today.

 

Shabbat Services with Meaning & Joy

Every Saturday we get together to celebrate the holy Shabbat in song and prayer. Our services are both traditional and user-friendly, as we fully recognize that not everyone has experience ‘Davening’ (praying) in a traditional setting. What those who have joined have found is that the atmosphere in our synagogue is conducive to meaningful meditation. A knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary to participate. In fact, the only thing that is needed is the desire to learn and to connect to the Almighty. It is an enriching experience not to be missed! Shabbat services begin at 10am and conclude at approximately 12:30pm and are followed by a wonderful community lunch. There is no cost to attend and reservations are not needed.

Hebrew School - Hebrew School Registration SCHOOL STARTS THIS WEEK

Give your children the Jewish education that they deserve! Our Sunday Hebrew School offers lots of hands-on activities and positive reinforcement. Students learn Hebrew language skills, Jewish living and observance, Jewish history, and so much more! We include arts & crafts, field trips, and holiday programming to make their experience even more enjoyable. Your child will have fun as he or she gains an appreciation for the ‘why’s and ‘how’s of Judaism. Our students want to be here!

Please contact our Hebrew School Director, Morah Nechama Eilfort or Morah Chaya Eilfort for further info.Info@ChabadatLaCosta.com.

Omni La Costa Resort Welcomes Chabad at La Costa Guests

Memorial Plaques & Tree of Life Plaques Available

Our beautiful Memorial Boards have been installed. We specifically designed our custom-built bookcases to ‘frame’ each of the boards. The first Memorial Board was dedicated by the Brunelle Family and the new Board was dedicated by the Alter Family.

We are currently offering Memorial Plaques to those who wish to perpetually honor the memory of a loved one in a most dignified and permanent manner. Those who dedicate Memorial Plaques will also receive yearly reminders of the Yarzeit and the light on the Board will be illuminated each year on the Yarzeit.

We also have a gorgeous Tree of Life dedicated by the Lieberman Family that has been ‘growing’. The purpose of the plaques on the Tree of Life is to commemorate joyous occasions (like Bar/Bat Mitzvah, anniversaries, special birthdays, weddings etc.).

The donation is only $500 per plaque for the Memorial Board or $180 for the Tree of Life. Those who wish to participate should send an email toinfo@ChabadatLaCosta.com, or call Rabbi Eilfort at 760-943-8891.

Cell Phones & Chatting During Services

Needless to say the sanctuary on Shabbat or holidays is a place that must be conducive to reflective prayers and serenity. To help keep it this way, please refrain from engaging in any conversations during services and please do not bring in your cell phone. Thank you for your cooperation.

Shul Etiquette

Those who join us regularly for Shabbat services will agree that we have something very special going. The family-friendly atmosphere is unique and most inviting. We welcome everyone as though he/she is a long time member of the family.

At the same time it is important to remember that we are a synagogue. Our sanctuary is meant to be a place where it is conducive to finding inner peace and tranquility. That is why the Rabbis have many laws concerning the decorum of a shul.

It is appropriate to dress modestly and to dress somewhat formally in shul. Men should wear button down shirts, slacks (no jeans or shorts), with jackets and even ties when possible. Of course the head is to be kept covered at all times. Women should wear skirts that go past the knees and blouses with high neck lines and sleeves that cover the elbows. Married women should wear hats and the like.

Children must be supervised at all times by the parents except during Junior Congregation (11:30am). While we want the children to have a great time together it is also important that they do not become so wild and/or boisterous that they disturb those of us who are participating in the services.

We must remember that we should walk to shul and never park in the parking lot if there already eight cars parked. Finally, and we fully realize this goes against Jewish DNA, it is appropriate to come to shul ON TIME. While we know everyone is vying to be counted as the 10th, we are equally sure Hashem will give extra credit to those who come ON TIME at 10am (not to be confused with 11:30). We look forward to seeing you here!
