Be a Part of The Celebration 4 \f;. One of the most glorious events in the history of Congregation Ner Tamid will take place Feb. 24th and 25th, 2007, when a special Gala Weekend ushers in CNT's new life at 55 North Valle Verde (at 1-215) in Henderson. The gala will pay tribute to the Greenspun Family, who donated the eight and one half acres where the New Temple Campus is being built, and to the wonderful and cherished history of the synagogue. To make this a most memorable event, we are seeking your photos, reminisces, and personal stories. Yvonne Gordon, along with her committee, will be collecting and writing the stories that will trace the history of CNT. We want members to share with us their fondest memories of CNT. The temple has played such an important part in so many people's lives and we want to remember those moments. Whether it's a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, a wedding, a funny incident with the Rabbi, or a lasting friendship found at CNT, we want to know about it. The Memory Book Committee is requesting that each anecdote be no more than 100 words and if there is a photo to illustrate the story, send that also. Every effort will be made to use as many memories and pictures as possible although some may have to be omitted because of publishing constraints. All material can be mailed to Yvonne Gordon c/o CNT, 1728 Tangiers Dr, Henderson, NV 89012. Or email the story/photo to AUGUST 2006 VOL. XX NO. 8 AV/ELUL 5766 The Beauty at the End of the Path Rabbinic Intern Cookie Lee Olshein The trek up the hill wasn?t too arduous - the path had been worn by years of others making the same climb. At the end of the curved path, you see benches and what looks to be an open wooden Ark placed on stilts, with a gently flowing curtain covering the Torah... but this belt tcfillah has no doors, walls, or even a ceiling. Instead, only the sky above and the gentle breeze surround you. The waves of the ocean can be seen behind the cliff you are on, just behind the Ark. The naturally growing plants and the butterflies become part of your worship experience. The tenth graders have prepared today?s service, writing introductions, or iyyunim, for each prayer, stating their individual beliefs regarding how they relate each prayer to their own lives. They have choreographed ?their? sendee, including choosing the music they wanted to use. They have been empowered to adapt Judaism to their own lives. This describes what I saw this summer at Gindling Hilltop Camp, one of Wilshire Boulevard Temple?s camps, the other being Camp Hess-Kramer. (The Union for Reform Judaism also has amazing summer camps all across America, as do many of the larger synagogues.) Never having been to a Jewish summer camp before, I did not understand why so many of my classmates would say ?camp changed my life,? or ?Jewish summer camp is the most important Jewish experience a child can have?... but now I think I get it. The kids do many of the same things they would do at a nomjewish camp, such as swimming, hiking, ropes courses (both high and low), archery, arts and crafts, dance, and singing - but this experience is framed almost completely throughjewish eyes. For example, they study Jewish philosophy before doing the ropes course - Martin Buber?s ?I'Thou? and ?Ht? relationships are turned into lessons regarding how we treat each other when we have to work together as a team. They study Jewish values - lessons about how we treat each other and how we treat the world when they are learning to be future counselors to other kids. They learn Hebrew everywhere. Every place at camp has a Hebrew name attached to it and the counselors from Israel teach the kids modern Hebrew. They dance to the latest Israeli music and everyone learns how to folkdance. And then, at the closing session each night, the kids put their arms around each other in a huge circle to say the Shema and the Hashkivaymi, our evening prayer asking fort God?s shelter of peace. Camp models how to live a Jewish life. But we don?t have to go off to camp to live a Jewish life. Sometimes we merely need to reframe what we already are doing as being ?Jewish,? seeing our lives with a Jewish awareness and through a ?Jewish lens.? Others of us may wish to add more ?doingjewish? to our lives. It can begin simply by choosing to read a Jewish-themed book or playing Jewish music on our car stereos. We can say the Shema with our kids before they go to sleep or we can decide to read the Torah portion each week. We can come to services even when there is ?nothing special? going on (in other words, we can reframe our thinking so that we think of Shabbat as being ?special? all by itself). We can invite our friends over for Shabbat dinner and, after dinner, we can take a moment to say thank you for all the food and good we have in our lives. Even the little things can add so much to our lives. So, even if we do not get to go to Malibu for Jewish summer^^ camp, we can bring all the experiences of camp home.^P Connecting ourselves to our Jewish heritage helps us connect with more than the mundane experiences of daily life... we can bring holiness into our everyday lives so that living Jewish'ly can be the beauty at the end of the path. $ September Attractions $ 9/8 Prospective Member Shabbat 7:30 pm 9/10 First Day of Religious School And Confirmation 9:15 am 9/11 Adult B?nai Mitzvah Class 7:30 pm 9/11 Conversion Class 7:30 pm 9/16 Selichot Program/Service 6:30 pm 9/17 Men?s Club Breakfast 9:00 am 9/22 Erev Rosh Hashanah Services At Green Valley Ranch 9/23 Rosh Hashanah Services At Green Valley Ranch 9/24 No Religious School or Confirmation 9/30 Shakespeare in Park 6:00 pm T WWW.LVNER.TAMID.OltG >Temple Board (flB President- Marla Letizia VP Administration - Harry Sax hanydotcom@cox.nct VP Ways & Means - Michael Unger VP Youth & Education - Beth Falk VP Ritual - Del Acosta VP Member Recruitment - Jay Poster VP Member Retention - Marsha Goldberg VP Social Action - Cindyjensen Treasurer - Gregg Solomon Corporate Secretary - Yvonne Gordon Trustees Michele Fendell Barry Lewisohn Jordie Primack clos Debra Cohen Stacey Yahraus-Lewis Daryl Alterwitz lllisa Polis Craig Kurtzman Mark Bromberg Laura Bailey, Sisterhood President C NTS Stu Solomon, Men?s Club President Megan Stolberg, NTTY Co-President Rebecca Weiss, NTTY Co-President While in many other cities August is a time for barbeques and neighborhood parties we here in Las Vegas tend to cozy into the cool of the air conditioned houses and our temple, using the time away from the heat for deep reflection and preparation for the end of the year. Here at Congregation Ner Tamid, this time we share is full of anticipation for the many new things that are coming our way, and all of the incredible options that appear as we create a new home of prayer. Each choice from the color of the paint to the type of paper that we print this bulletin on is brought to you with deep concern for the ultimate well being of the congregation as a whole. What I do realize is the great honor that has been bestowed upon me in the measure of trust that you place upon my shoulders. I also realize that this task cannot be accomplished single handedly and for that I am grateful for each and every one of you, for your support, for your confidence in my ability to lead our board of trustees. We foresee a positive future full of vibrant life and solemn prayer, exemplary education and incredible music. A temple that speaks to the needs of each and every one of you, that becomes the place where you find solace and joy. This month is our cities driest season; let us not allow this to also be the case for the synagogue cash flow as well. This is a wonderful time to refresh your commitment with your Kol Nidre pledge, knowing that your gift is the gift of progress, new life and adding your voice to the many choices that we face together. I want to thank each and every one of you personally for the faith and the honor that you have bestowed upon me by electing me into the presidency at this incredible time in our history. Hand in hand, we face a wonderful future together. -( A ugust 2 0 0 6 3) B?nai Mitzvah - Religious School From Your Education Director New beginnings are often times difficult as we must honor the past yet forge ahead with a vision for the future. Coming to work here at Congregation Ner Tamid is very exciting for me as I join the staff of this dynamic synagogue and build upon the foundation that was laid down by my predecessors. While the new campus is being built, I envision the opportunities we can create and look forward to the many challenges that he before me. Being welcomed by so many people has made this transition from Santa Barbara much easier. I have left behind a wonderful congregation where relationships were formed and memories will forever be engraved in my heart. I look forward to new adventures and making Congregation Ner Tamid my new home. I am eager to meet you, get to know you, and work together with you. I intend to enjoy this honeymoon period as we get to know one another and I learn what is working and what may need some tinkering. Change will no doubt happen, and it will be done with careful thought and a lot of input from staff, teachers, students, parents, and congregants. In order for me to get a better sense of where we?re at, I would like to invite you to a series of meet and greet events this month. In preparation for these meetings I ask that you think about our educational strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges. Together we?ll have a chance to share these thoughts and continue to plan for the future. Each meeting will focus on particular grade levels, but if you cannot make it to your grade level meeting, please feel free to come to the meeting most convenient for you. All meetings will be held at the Temple office on Green Valley Pkwy. Please RSVP to Lynette at the Temple office by Wednesday, August 9.

My parents Wendy and Wayne, my brother Jason and all my close friends will be there to help me celebrate.Just a ? Philip Goldstein, Cantorial Soloist A study in contrasts, the Hebrew month of Av contains both the solemn fast day, Tisha b?Av (the Ninth of Av) and a holiday popular at the time of the Second Temple called Tub?Av(the 15th ofAv). Tisha b?Av is the anniversary of the destruction of both the first and second Temples in Jerusalem, and by tradition, the anniversary of the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492, the beginning of the deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto and of many other events disastrous to the Jews. By contrast, Tu b?Av was an occasion of rejoicing and romance. The Talmud relates that on Tu b?Av, young women dressed in white and went out to dance in the vineyards. By custom, f|ey wore borrowed garments to minimize ompetitiveness over one another?s couture. Young men would come out to the vineyards to survey the dancing women and to select their brides. While the music, dance and most of the details of that festival have been lost forever, a more conventional approach to music and socializing happens at CNT at approximately the same time as Tu b?Av. Yes, I am talking about rehearsals for the High Holy Day Choir! While we can?t promise matrimony will result, we can promise that the experience of singing on the High Holy Days will increase your connection to the liturgy and enhance High Holiday services for you and the entire congregation. Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. at the temple office. For more information, contact me at 733- 6292 x106 or Prospective Member Shabbat Friday, September 8! Bring your neighbors, Tell your friends! Share the First Shabbatone Service of the Season! Stay for an Oneg Under the Stars! 'Tf' August 2006 ~5)Excitement and Construction Irv Duchowny, Executive Director By now, you've either seen the construction of our new temple, or at least heard about it time for us all here at CNT. When I last drove by, I saw that we have walls up, beams up and major work being done. This is on-site, in full view of anyone and everyone who?s interested, and now that we have walls up, we have LOTS OF INTEREST - I?m getting a good number of calls, both from CNT members and potential members, and this is very exciting. I?ve been giving this some thought, and we?re definitely building - * Our new Temple * At our new Facility * On our new Campus What can you do about this? Several thoughts come to mind quickly and they are: Share the excitement - a. Tell your friends who are not affiliated, as we know that this is ?Shul Shopping Season?, and there are many people who are currently looking for ?their? temple. This is the time for us to grow our membership, and the best way is by word of mouth. b. When at any temple function, please be friendly - we are known as an open, warm, friendly and welcoming temple, and that means that anytime you see someone you don?t recognize, please ?be that someone who's warm, caring and involved? - this is the main reason people join temples (to be connected), and, we all can help others see this is for real, and not only words at work here. c. Help us with our plans for our Gala Opening Weekend festivities. We?re looking for volunteers for our various activities on the weekend of Feb. 25th and 26th, and we can use your help - either for Saturday evening?s festivities, or Sunday?s Torah Walk, Consecration of the Building or the food/entertainment portion of Sunday. Of course, we?ll also need ?hosts? to guide people or answer questions at the new temple. What else? Join us NOW for our continuing Adult Education classes, High Holiday services (at Green Valley Ranch Station), attend Shabbat Services, join our Adult B?nai Mitzvah class, join our Adult Choir, sign up your children for Religious School, and just come and join us as we move forward. Please give me a call or email me, and we?ll go from there, and THANK YOU to those who have volunteered so far - this is great! Excitement and Construction! Who could ask for anything more? High Holyday Tickets # To clarify the Temple?s policy, 75% of your Annual Commitment must be paid in order to receive your High Holy Day Tickets. This means 75% of your Annual Dues plus 75% of this year?s Building Fund Commitment. For example: If your Building Fund Assessment Total is $2,500 (your full 5 year commitment), you would need to have a minimum of $375 paid towards your 2006 (current year???s committment) BF Commitment ($2,500 divided by 5 = $500 X 75%=$375). If your Annual Dues is $1506, you would also need to have a minimum of $1,130 paid towards your 2006 Annual Dues ($1,506 X 75% = $1,130). In total, you would need to have $1,505 paid towards your 2006 Annual Commitment in order to receive your High Holy Day Tickets. (These are only examples; your actual Commitment amounts may differ.) If you have any questions or need to speak about any of these numbers, please feel free to contact Irv in the temple office. CNT STAFF Rabbi Sanford D.
