His music has become an important part of the Reform Jewish movement, with synagogue youth and clergy alike incorporating it into their curriculum and services. He was born in 1969 in Indianapolis, Indiana. He attended URJ Goldman Union Camp in Indianapolis for 10 years as a camper and since 1994 has returned yearly to facilitate as the camp's artist-in-residence. He attended the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where in 1992 he received his Bachelor of Music. After leaving college, he formed the Jewish rock band. Eighteen, and released their first CD, Life, in 1996. Over the next 6 years they released Be Strong, the band's most popular CD to date, and Kol HaShabbat. Dan was also a featured performer for the prestigious adult enrichment conference in 2002, Limmud, in Nottingham, England. Check out Dan and his band Eighteen on the web at You can see photos and hear sound-bites from his cd's. For the past five years, Dan has served as artist-in-residence for High Holydays and Madrichim retreats as Temple Shir Shalom in West Bloomfield, Michigan. Also, since 2002, he has been on facultyfor Hava NaShira, a national song-leading program sponsored by the URJ, which serves over 180 rising song leaders throughout North America. He has also served as artist-in-residence at all 12 URJ camps. Last year he was the Music Director at NFTY National Convention. Join us in welcoming Dan at our Music Season Shabbat Friday, March 24, at 7:30 pm. Then, on Saturday night, March 25, at 7:30 pm he will perform a concert at the Flamingo Library. Tickets available in the temple office. New Campus Update! See Page 6From The Rabbi As I write this rabbi?s message, I have watched with growing dismay the increasingly volatile reaction by the Muslim world to 12 cartoons which portrayed the Muslim prophet Mohammed in a small Danish newspaper. While it is difficult to fully understand a I culture and a religion to which we are not a part, every fiber in my body speaks to the g|||| inability to justify this type of response. As Westerners, we support the right of a free press. And yet, the right to express one?s opinion comes with responsibility. There is EgSlg. . little excuse to purposely use ?political cartoons? to purposely malign any religion. To do so would be an affront and the response would be letters to the editor, meetings with the publisher, perhaps even a boycott of the newspaper if a group were truly incensed. But mm/Mi every respect. But that is not the case. Constantly, the Muslim press has published cartoons that have been offensive to Christianity and Judaism. As documented by Palestinian Media Watch, the Muslim Press exercises almost no self-censorship in the publications of cartoons which involve gross stereotypes of Jews. Not a week goes by in the Arab world without a ?political? cartoon portraying Jews as either blood-suckers, Nazis, or the indiscriminate killers of Palestinian children. The Anti-Defamation League points out that: the U.N. designation of January 27 as Holocaust Memorial Day, was an occasion for many Arab newspapers to run cartoons and columns that denied or downplayed the horrors of the Holocaust. Additionally, many newspaper articles accused Jews of using the Holocaust to justify the persecution of others. In an interview with the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, analyst Joe Kotek writes ?The main recurrent motif in Arab cartoons concerning Israel is ?the devilish Jew?. This image conveys the idea that Jews behave like Nazis, kill children and love blood.? A major theme in Arab cartoons is the blood-loving or blood-thirsty Jew. This originates in Christian anti- Semitism. The Christian anti-Semitic libel alleged that Jews needed Christian blood for their Passover service. It?s claim is that the Jew is evil, as his religion forces him to drink blood. In today?s Arab world thi image of unbridled hatred has mutated into the alleged quest for Palestinian blood. Blood-drinking Jews are frequently shown by Al Ahram, one of Egypt?s leading dailies. On April 21,2001, it printed a cartoon showing an Arab being put into a flatting mill by two soldiers wearing helmets with Stars of David. The Arab?s blood pours out and two Jews with kippot and Stars of David on their shirts drink the blood laughingly. Clearly the Arab world sees political cartoons that are extreme in nature as acceptable, unless the target is Islam. Imagine if you will an article in the newspaper that went like this: Associated Press: Hundreds of thousands of Jews rioted across Europe and the Middle East to protest anti-semitic cartoons in the Arab press. Hundreds were hurt, embassies were destroyed, stores looted in protest.... Associated Press: Millions of Hindus took to the streets to protest ads in newspaper selling beef. As cows are sacred to Hindus, this offense resulted in the rioting of Hindus throughout the world. Supermarkets were burned. Police were futile in their ability to control the angry mob.... You won?t find any such stories because they will never happen. Jews, Hindus, Christians do not respond this way. Increasingly we live in a world that is fractured and viewed as pitting one culture against another. It pains me to write this. But it would be naive to suggest otherwise. One of the sacred values of democracy is that of a free press. With that freedom comes responsibility. No source of media should purposely seek to defame or misrepresent the truth, religious or otherwise. But if the press is forced to cower, it is no longer free. History has shown us the fate of societies that silence their press rioting? We might make some sense of the Muslim world?s response if they felt this way in Or B?shalom Rabbi Sanford Akselrad 2 WWW.LVNERJAMID.ORG Adult Learning Adult Education i.

The group has had two events so far, and has two more slated for the spring. The social calendar began in October, with a ?movie and lunch? date. Approximately fifteen 6lh, 7th, and 8lh graders shared pizza and the film ?Holes,? and made some new friends. In January, the group spent the afternoon at Sunset Station?s ?Strike Zone,? where 19 teens enjoyed an afternoon of bowling and a feast of chicken strips, fries, pizza, soda, and enormous cookies. Later that day, TNT elected its new Board members. Congratulations to President Michelle Chenin, Co-Vice Presidents Paul Chenin and Gabrielle Giancaspro, Secretary Aryn Bordman, Treasurer Teimey Torchin, and Historian Jamie Edelman! Save March 19 for an afternoon of indoor rock climbing at the Nevada Climbing Center. Then start thinking! about the year?s finale on the evening of Saturday, May 20 - a Regressive Dinner!

March 2 006 5 Your Executive D irector Building Excitement.... And a Synagogue As everyone knows, we?re in the process of building our new facility at the 215 and Valle Verde. As with every construction project, there are small bumps in the road. The good news is that we have built in for these contingencies, both in time and financially. We?re still looking at the end* of 2006 or January 2007 for our move-in date. Meanwhile, life continues here at CNT. ? We are having wonderful and warm services at King David every Shabbat (please, join us if you haven?t yet!); ? We are having our Religious School classes on Sundays at Gibson Elementary (and thank you to both our teachers and theirs, for allowing us to do this); We continue with our Adult B?nai Mitzvah and Conversion classes here at the offices; We are having our students come in and meet with Philip and Rabbi for their B?nai Mitzvah studying, espe?cially as each student gets close to their special date; We are having ongoing B?nai Mitzvot at various locations, helping each family to celebrate their child?s coming of age; We have held our annual Leadership Development sessions, for those hand-picked congregants who might like to be more involved in temple goings-on; We are having our ongoing Adult Education classes, both in our offices and offsite, depending on the various programs. Scholar-In-Residence continues for us on an annual basis, as we?ve just finished having Professor Susannah Heschel here. Our Purim Carnival will be held at Silver Springs Park, right next to Gibson Elementary on March 12th. Our Gift Shop is open for business, here in our offices. We will have our Passover Seder at Green Valley Ranch on April 12th, and all are invited to join us. As you can see, and the list can go on and on, we are having all of our usual, normal activities, and will continue to do so until we can move into our new facility. This is an exciting time for us, and we invite EVERYONE to continue to come to CNT events, programs and services. Join us! to be continued...... Irv New Campus Update! Last October we celebrated the commencement of construction of the Greenspun Campus For Jewish Life, Learning and Spiritual Renewal. Since then work has progressed toward a completion of construction and occupancy of our new facilities in January of 2007. We had hoped to be able to occupy the new facility by December 1,2006, but, with any project of this size and scope being constructed in the Las Vegas Valley, we experienced some delays. We were required by the City of Henderson to raise the height of a retaining wall on the north side of the site. This required a larger footing for the wall which required the preparation and submittal of a revised drawing for the wall. Several weeks transpired while the drawings were prepared, submitted to the City of Henderson and then approved. In the meantime, site work on the sanctuary foundation came to a halt because the retaining wall foundation had to be built before dirt could be moved, etc. You have the picture. However, we are back on schedule. The additional costs were minimal, and, in any event, were anticipated when we prepared our construction budget. While access to the site is restricted, please drive by and watch as the new facility becomes a reality. This is an exciting time in our Congregation?s life and I hope all of you can share this marvelous experience.

When the board was presented with the final plan it was not what we expected and we spent a lot of time debating before adopting it. The plan has been our guide for the last five years. Now if you were around back then you know that the biggest conclusion was that in order to be a synagogue for the new century we were going to have to move. But it had been just five years since we built our sanctuary. But move we must. There were a lot of other specific plans and ideas but many were predicated on CNT moving to a location with room to grow that was convenient to our members. As you know it took a little longer to achieve that central requirement of a new home than we originally planned. However it is reality now. Walls will be going up, roofs going on and before you know it we will be moving into our new home for the 21st century. But what happens now to all those other goals and ideas? Well I am going to tell you. The board has begun the process of creating a transition team/ committee. We have not figured out how big or small this group will be nor the make up of the group. It may be similar to the group that did the five-year plan - we had a CORE group of individuals who then brought in other congregants who worked on a specific topic. By the time they were done, over 75 people had contributed in ways large and small. This time again we will look at all facets of our organization. Worship experiences will be looked at to see how we can enhance them. We want to know how and where to use technology to better serve the congregation. We need to know what our adults or seniors or post B?nai Mitzvah teens want to learn about and then provide that. We have the best staff in the world right now but with the influx of new members to serve we need to decide what our staff will look like in the future. Also we need to plan our budget based on living in our new home. You will hear more about this in the months to come. If you are asked to help please do so, this congregation belongs to all of us - the board needs to hear your thoughts and ideas. Our goal is to have a plan in place so we can begin implementation when we move to our new home. I also this month want to give one more plug for the Rabbi?s trip to Israel this coming June 10th to 20th. If you are on the fence about going time is running out. There are almost 30 people registered already and we are going to have a great time. If you have never been to Israel or you have been before, this trip offers something for everyone. Please contact the temple office and they can put you in touch with the tour operator to make your reservation. I know my family is looking forward to the trip and I am sure if you come you also will have an excellent experience.
