WURN FAMILY LIBRARY
TIR is closing for the year and with its conclusion, Jo-Ellen is embarking on the next chapter of her life. We thank her for her dedication and many contributions to Temple.
In July, we welcome Rabbi Cohen, Erin and Ayden and Temple’s story continues.
In life, as in books, when one chapter ends, another one begins. Here’s a sample of the many books we offer dealing with endings and new beginnings.
For the kids we have Ellis Island: Gateway to the New World, Moses in the Wilderness, Noah’s Ark, The Journey That Saved Curious George
Adult selections include Ellis Island Interviews, Living Jewish Life Cycle, The New Jewish Wedding, The Jewish Baby Book and Suddenly Jewish: Jews Raised As Gentiles Discover Their Jewish Roosts

Lifelong Learning: Costumes and Choreography
Monday, May 7 7 p.m. (Coleman)
Curious about the rituals of Jewish worship? Wonder why we wear a kippah? Is it a requirement? What about the tallit? When are we supposed to bow and why?
Learn about the costumes and choreography of Jewish worship with Rabbi Lief. Then make the personal choices that will make your personal worship experience more meaningful.

NOTES FROM THE TEMPLE ARCHIVES The following article came in anonymously, and with some research, I found that it was first printed in our Temple Messenger of April 16, 1982.
TEN COMMANDMENTS OF CONGREGATIONAL SINGING
1. Thou Shalt Sing! 2. Thou Shalt Sing with all thy heart, with all thy soul and with all thy might.
3. Thou Shalt Sing fearlessly, ignoring the possible wondering glances of your neighbors. They would like to sing with you if they had the nerve and they will sing with you if you continue.
4. Thou Shalt Sing joyfully, as it is written by the prophet Isaiah, “Sing O Heaven, be Joyful, O earth, and break forth into singing, O moun- tains.
5. Thou Shalt Sing reverently, for music is prayer. 6. Thou Shalt Not be Afraid to Sing, for though an individual may pray in prose or even in word- less silence, a Congregation must sing.
7. Thou Shalt Not Resist new melodies, for is it not written in the Book of Psalms: “O sing unto the Lord a new song”?
8. Thou Shalt Not Mumble the melody, but shall sing it out loud, even if with occasional mis- takes.
9. Thou Shalt Not Hesitate to sing together with the trained voices. They want you to join with them.
10. Thou Shalt Not Forget the words of the Psalm- ist: “I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live.”
