Ayelet began working here in August and has an incredible year planned for our children, as well as the adults.From The Rabbi Early, late. The High Holydays never seem to be ?on time!? So, this year ?their late?. B It?s a good question if you stop to think about it a moment. How many times in life do we lEfPF take time itself for granted? We use time. We squander time. We lament that we wish we BgiPhic "Tfl hadmoretime. Time itself forms a paradox for humans. When we are young it would seem that we live life in slow motion. And when we are older it would seem that life goes by in the RoshHashana begins the night of October 3rd, about a month from the time you will read this bulletin article. So I would like to make a suggestion in keeping with these days prior to Wtm * M ? M the High Holydays. Traditionallyjews did not just ?show up? at services for the High Holydays. There was an acknowledgement that the power of the Holydays was that of change. But change had to have a foundation of reflective time. Time that was spent pondering one?s life. One?s misgivings. One?s mistakes. In short, the days prior to the High Holydays were given to soul searching. So here is my challenge to all of us. Here are thirty topics to reflect upon or in some cases, deeds to do and write about. They are in no particular order, but all important nonetheless. Keep a daily journal about your musings about these topics as a way of preparing for the High Holydays. Here are my suggestions. Perhaps you will come up with your own list or discuss this list as a family: 1. How would a stranger know that I am Jewish? 2. What do I do daily to increase my Jewish knowledge? 3. When was the last time I helped a stranger? 4. Tzedakah means righteousness. What does this mean to you? 5. Find someone that you have wronged in the past year and truly apologize. 6. Repeat number five and describe tb^^ experience in your journal. 7. Write a prayer of gratitude to God. 8. Write a prayer of petition. 9. What are you^ goals for the year to come? 10. Call a friend you haven?t called in a long time. Describe this experience. 11. Call a close relative you haven?t called in a long time. Describe this experience. 12. Start a new hobby. What is it and why did you pick it? 13. What are you worried about? 14. What are you most proud of? 15. Who is your closest friend? 16. Describe a conversation between yourself and a person in history you would most like to meet. 17. Read a Jewish bookandwriteyourthoughtsaboutitinyourjoumal. 18. What recent movie moved you the most and why? 19. Go to Temple for services and write down your feelings afterwards. 20. Go to a new place. A place you have never been to before. But make it within 1 mile from your home. What did you discover? 21. Who do you miss most and why? 22. What changes in your life would you like to make most and why? 23. If you could be anyone who would it be and why? 24. What stops you from becoming involved in tikun olam (the repair of the world?) 25. What drives you to become involved in tikun olam? 26. Read this weeks Torah portion and describe what the portion meant to you. 27. What do you most regret? 28. What is it that makes you happiest? 29. What is most important to you? And why? 30. How will you change in the year to come? I hope you find something on this list that brings you to a deeper reflection of yourself and your relationships with each other.

October 8 November 12 December 10 January 14 ?Israeli Dancing February 11 March 11 April 8 May 13 / \ Committees / Auxiliaries V________________________________J Men's Club Kick-Off Breakfast SUNDAY, Sept. 18, 9:30 am S e p t e m b e r 2 0 0 5 3 Philip?s Message Wow, hard to believe that September is here. That means two things. High Holydays will soon be here and the Shabbatones return. Besides the hustle and bustle of a busy summer, getting the kids ready for school (and yourself), plus getting all those projects done around the house, our thoughts begin to turn to the High Holydays. This month I thought I would talk a little about the music for our High Holyday Services; it?s roots and what goes into preparing for these Holy Days. You hear the finished product at Services, but here is some background about the music. Nusach is a term for a particular musical mode or melody. Each and every service in Judaism has it?s own particular musical theme or nusach i.e.: Weekday Services, Shabbat Evening, Shabbat Morning, Festival and High Holydays. Which means that most every prayer chanted during each of these services has a different melody depending on the holiday. However, the only time you would probably hear an entire service chanted with nusach would be at an Orthodox or Conservative Synagogue. Even so, I believe a Cantor from any movement should know the nusach for each and every prayer and holiday to truly understand the roots of our musical heritage. I have tried to bring a variety of different styles of music to our Congregation. You will hear some nusach, some of the melodies the Rabbi or I grew up with, and also some of the more contemporary compositions at most of our services. This year you will hear a traditional High Holyday melody for the Chatzi Kaddish. You will probably recognize this melody as several other prayers are chanted very similarly due to the nusach of the High Holydays. Our Adult Choir has been working since July to prepare for the High Holyday Services and I hope you will take the time to let them know that they are appreciated. I also welcome any feedback on the musical choices I have made and hope that you enjoy and are moved by this music. The Shabbatones return September 9th, with our new CD. The band members: Ira Spector, Glori Rosenberger, Alan Molasky, Jay Poster, Brad Torchin, Mike Adler, Ed Birch and our newest member Matthew Birch, will all return^ The power of music can teach, renew, revitalize and move us all. ^ We are quickly approaching the Season of Awe in which we engage in the act of returning to God. Similarly, during the month of Elul leading up to the Yamim Noraim, we are called upon to look for the simanim, the ?signs? that we have hurt someone in the past. We must search our souls for both the obvious and the subtle indications that obligate us to engage in teshuvah with those around us. If we wait too long to return, our loved ones may despair of ever finding a renewed relationship with us. As we make amends with all of those whom we have wronged in the past year, we return something which was lost to them. Perhaps we must return a family member?s sense of dignity; perhaps we must give back our neighbor?s sense of self worth; perhaps we must bring back our child?s sense of independence, our parent?s sense of honor, or our friend?s sense of trust. As we approach the New Year and Yom Kippur, we need help in attaining change in ourselves. I hope that we can help facilitate personal growth and continue to attract so many people to our vision in the months to come. Please tell your friends and family to come and worship with us. I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year! B?Shalom Philip Welcome Back! It's NTTY time again!!! Attention All 9th - 12th Graders! We invite you to be part of this fun, exciting youth group. If you would like to meet new teens, develop long lasting friendships, and experience Jewish traditions, then please contact Jolie Alhadeff at 610-1858 or Yvonne Greenfield 304-0605 for more information. Don't miss FALL KALLAH September 8-11th at Camp Pearlstein in Arizona it will be a blast!!! 4 WWW.LVNERTAMID.ORG B?nai M itzvah & Youth N ews A Letter To Parents of Jewish Kids j^pvould like to welcome all parents and students, returning and new, to a new year at the Religious School. I?m excited ancThonored to join your community and to have the opportunity to lead your children and you in the exciting path of Jewish education. A strong community of involved parents and open'minded dialogue are extremely important to me while creating a welcoming environment for Jewish education. I would like to start our relationship through sharing some thoughts about being a Jewish parent. How hard is it to raise your children in today?s world? How hard is it to raise your childrenjewish in today?s world? How hard is it to keep your family life Jewish? Beingjewish is a privilege not a burden (however farfetched this statement sometimes seems to be). Beingjewish is a journey not an obstacle on the road, and the Temple?s community is here to be a true companion in your most important family journey. Our family is the most important asset we have for as long as we live, and our Jewish tradition and heritage is the thread that goes through our family?s life. Sometimes thin, sometimes thick, but it is always there. How many times have you paused for a split second and thought: I need to get more involved with myjewish community? How many times have you briefly stopped the ?running through life madness? and made a mental note: I need to be more active in Jewish life?possibly with the children? How many times in the midst of ballet, gymnastics, piano, basketball, soccer, grocery shopping, office work, homework, dinner and baths (is it midnight yet?) did it cross your mind that oh my God, I need to put God on my list. I amjewish, my children arejewish, so how can I weave it more into our lives? After all, Judaism will be there long after they retire from their careers as ballerinas, doctors, computer programmers, financial analysts, and attorneys. Now for the ?big surprise.? You are the most important and influential people in your children?s lives! You are also the most dominant Jewish educator in your children?s lives. The values that are most important to you are the ones that become most important to them (although this fact may seem hard to believe). Whenever you, as parents, show your sense of ina^rtance, respect and gratitude, you plant those seeds within your child And don?t worry; sometime when puberty is over, ycSIwill get your rewards. There are many opportunities to be this great Jewish role model. You just need to recognize and grab them while they are there. Take advantage of programs like Tot Shabbat andjewish Holidays and special activities in the Religious School. Make participation in Shabbat services and holidays a special time for your family. When families are having fun and sharing our Jewish tradition together, a special treasured memory is created. Furthermore, and most importantly, you show your children that sense of importance, respect and gratitude that will remain with them forever. Don?t miss these opportunities because ?it is not mandatory, we have the day off.? These are the irreplaceable times when you can incorporate Jewish experiences into your family life. But just as important, is the opportunity to become the role model we all aspire to be, in between work, tennis, gymnastics, ballet, reading a story and saying goodnight, tomorrow is another day. B?Shalom Ayelet DagaruBlit Education Director Rachel Moody September 17 On Saturday morning, September 17, I will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah. I attend Garrett Middle School in Boulder City and will be entering 8th grade this fall. My favorite subjects are math and RE. I also enjoy being a member of my school's basketball team. My hobbies include basketball, playing piano and running. I am really looking forward to becoming a Bat Mitzvah and I hope you can join me on this very special occasion. S e p t e m b e r 2 0 0 5 5 Your Executive Director Opportunities There are many ?Opportunities? here at Congregation Ner Tamid. The opportunity to pray with those who are close to you, the opportunity to study Torah with those who you may (or may not) kno\^^ the opportunity to attend classes, to attend services here on Friday nights with friends and loved one^P and many other golden opportunities. We also have many opportunities to help others. This can take various forms, such as extending a smile to someone you don?t know, holding a door open for someone coming into temple behind you, by explaining a religious ritual that we honor here to someone who?s new, or by saying ?Shabbat Shalom? ? on a Friday evening to those around you, helping to create a Jewish community we all enjoy. There are also financial opportunities that we all have here at CNT. It might be: In purchasing a High Holidays Reserved Parking space in the back, or By contributing to our annual Kol Nidre appeal, or By making a donation for dinner tickets, by donating items for the silent auction, or by placing an ad in the Commemorative J oumal for our annual Mensch of the Year fundraiser in December. ? It might be by taking advantage of the opportunity to join our Menorah Level Donors or our Sustaining Members, who have all committed to a higher level of annual dues, over and above the usual annual commitments, helping to offset the Mitzvah we offer to those who cannot pay full membership dues. In addition, we have opportunities all year long to contribute to CNTs financial well being. Some examples are, when you feel it: ? * * * ? To sponsor an Oneg in honor of an anniversary, a birthday, a B?nai Mitzvah, or any wonderful occasion, or T o contribute to any of our specific programs that we do, such as our Adult Education Fund, our Choir Fund, our Perpetual Trust Fund, our Religious School Funds, or any of our clergy?s Discretionary Funds, to allow them to contribute where they feel it?s best served in the sendee that our Rabbi and Cantorial Soloist perform, or * To contribute to our NCC (New Campus Campaign), to help us achieve the wonderful goal of building our new campus. We have met certain goals, but we still need your help in making sure that we have the quality facility th^P all Congregation Ner Tamid families and friends deserve and want, or ? To contribute your time, energy and desire - we always need volunteers to help around the temple, in many different ways, and the more help that we can get from our volunteers, the better off financially the temple is. There are many opportunities that we can take advantage of here at Congregation Ner T amid - educational, religious and financial. We ask that you take advantage of all of these opportunities, to make CNT truly a wonderful place to belong. to be continued. Irv 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 were $2,500 (your full 5 year commitment), you would need to have a minimum of $375 paid towards your 2004 BF Commitment ($2,500 divided by 5=$500 X 75%=$375). If your Annual Dues were $2,000, you would also need to have a minimum of $1,500 paid towards your 2004 Annual Dues ($2,000 X 75% =$1,500). In total, you would need to have $1,875 paid towards your 2004 Annual Commitment in order t receive your High Holy Day Tickets. (These are only examples; your actual Commitment amounts m 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.

Telling you what is happening in this article is jjK % difficult since 1 have to write it several weeks before fm i?'-? you receive it. However, you will receive more vl Twf information very soon and at high holyday services. 1 1* j would normally write my September article about the JPy. high holydays but this year neither holiday is until October. 1 actually find writing this article to be one of the BENEFITS of the presidency, however the topic is the hardest part. You've heard of writers block; 1 sometimes have topic block. Once 1 have a topic, though, the article is the easy part. This month 1 wantto talk about how being involved at the temple guides my life both at home and at work. Sandy and 1 work very hard to teach our children what is right and what is wrong. A friend of mine told me what she said when she dropped her oldest son off at college and 1 thought it was so great 1 have used it myself. She said, "If you have to think about whether it is right or wrong you probably shouldn't do it". A line like this works when you have done your job and taught your children those lessons long ago. 1 too can use this line because my children grew up involved at CNT and know right from wrong. Megan got her first job. She is 15 Viand thinking about a driver's license and a car; a parent's worst nightmare. I have put her on a matching program - every dollar she saves becomes two towards a car. While she was with Sandy picking up the dry cleaning one day, she saw a "help wanted" sign, applied for and got the job. Now, it is minimum wage but at least she is learning that anything you really want is worth working for. However, she came home after the first couple of days and told us that when they check people's pockets they get to keep any money they find. She kind of knew that really wasn't the right thing to do. Most time it is only a few coins, maybe a dollar bill, but something told her to come home and tell Sandy and I. So together we decided what was right - she will put it in a Tzedaka box and give it to a charity of her choice. I am proud to say that my daughter learns by example. Taking care of those that are less fortunate than us is important. I own a business with 90 or so employees. I have taken advantage of tax saving programs that are available to my company. We recently began a discussion about a wages scale adjustment. We felt that our starting wage in the plant was no longer adequate to attract the quality of employee we needed. We then received a notice that in order to continue receiving certain tax breaks we had to pay "a living wage". It was within a couple percent of the wage we were considering so our decision was now made and I really felt good about it. After all, these folks work hard and deserve a wage they can live on. It is good business, but more importantly, it is the right thing to do. I spent some time thinking about what I was doing at work and what we had recently gone through as Megan joined the work force. I came to the conclusion that the Torah had guided all of these decisions - to teach my child responsibility, to teach my child Tzedukah, to help those who are less fortunate than us. So, as my family goes through life, I am sure we will know what is right and what is not for the torah will be our guide.
