Stress is unavoidable part of the human experience, but learning how to manage our stress can ensure we are not linked to negative physical conditions such as high blood pressure, increase heart rate, and high blood sugar levels, as well as mental health issues, such as anger, depression, and anxiety.
When you are in the thick of things, trying to juggle too many things at work and with family, you are attempting to care for others while disregarding your own needs. Which is why it is so important to have reminders that this too shall pass and that whatever is worrying you is temporary. What stays with you is your own resilience and fortitude.
One major way to combat stress is to choose not to engage with it. Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax. In times of tension and strain offering up reassurance that no matter how stressful a moment is, the next may just bring calm and certitude.
El estrés es una parte inevitable de la experiencia humana, pero aprender a manejarlo puede garantizar que no estemos vinculados a condiciones físicas negativas como presión arterial alta, aumento del ritmo cardíaco y niveles altos de azúcar en la sangre, así como problemas de salud mental, como la ira, la depresión y la ansiedad.
Cuando estás en medio de las cosas, tratando de hacer malabarismos con demasiadas cosas en el trabajo y con la familia, estás tratando de cuidar a los demás sin tener en cuenta tus propias necesidades. Por eso es tan importante tener recordatorios de que esto también pasará y que cualquier cosa que te preocupe es temporal. Lo que se queda contigo es tu propia resiliencia y fortaleza.
Una forma importante de combatir el estrés es elegir no involucrarse con él. A veces, lo más productivo que puedes hacer es relajarte. En momentos de tensión y presión, ofrece tranquilidad de que no importa cuán estresante sea un momento, el siguiente puede traer calma y certeza.

I would like to bring to your attention THE STAR OF DAVID. As you know it is a symbol of divine guidance and protection. It shines and stands out. As important, it is a symbol of a Jew. This symbol is recognized throughout the world and affects our lives in many ways.
Here at the Cuban Hebrew Congregation we have our own star that shines and stands out. This star is a very special person, not only in our community but in the Jewish community at large. We would like to honor her hard work, dedication and outstanding contributions.
There is no role in life more essential than that of motherhood. This person amplifies the role in her own family as she does to anyone in need. We should all recognize the strong presence of starts in our lives and take the time to say thank you.
The Women’s League honors NANCY BROOK as the star of our community and to say thank you.

Have no hope, and all their
evil ways be gone (lost)
We are looking forward to many more wonderful years here at Temple Beth Shmuel- Cuban Hebrew Congregation.

You have heard we would close many years ago but we remain functioning and we will continue to keep our doors OPEN to the community. I thank you for your support and look forward to 2021, in which we will share and participate in many cultural, educational and social events in our beautiful sanctuary and newly renovated starlight Olemberg Ballroom.
Stay safe, distance and always wear your mask.

Now is the time to find the spiritual connection inside, not inside a physical structure, but inside ourselves. The community will connect with the help of technology. But we must also find the way to create our own spiritual connection. Perhaps we can make the environment in our personal home help ignite the spirit. For some candles, artwork and religious symbols could help decorate the environment, and feel like a personal sanctuary. For some it might be the presence of family or friends in the same room, or even over a computer screen. Many will want to take a quiet time before or after the recorded services, contemplating the previous year and the next year, meditating on the hopes, dreams, expectations and potential surprises the world offers. We take time to remember the blessings and the challenges, while trying to feel blessed by both especially this year. We are truly challenged to make our home our sanctuary. Let us see Hashem before our eyes, in our home and in our hearts. Starting from such holy hearts, holy homes and holy minds, together we will make it a very sweet New Year.
