Temple Seder April 12th, 2006 Green Valley Ranch See Flyer For More Information!From The Rabbi Technology. Can?t live with it and can?t live without it. When did simple things start to become complicated? I sit at a meeting and I take out my day planner. No problem. I flip through the pages and I easily find my appointments and my ?to do? list. My colleagues have their mini computers in hand with their stylus, clicking away achieving the same thing. I am standing talking to someone only to realize that he is not listening to me at all. No, not because he is daydreaming but because he >/ Mm is talking to someone else. I look around and there is no one there. Only a small 3-inch M&aj1 Uf J M metallic like device fit over the person?s right ear. A miniature cell phone. I am sitting m m around the den with my family over the holidays. So good to have my daughter home ?* m M from college. In her hand is her lifeline to her ?other life?. Acell phone. It is not around her ear but in her hand. She isn?t talking at all, but every so often it beeps. And her two thumbs work furiously for about 25 seconds. This goes on for quite some time. She calls this text messaging ?communication???. I wonder how a simple 10- cent act can add up to a 150-dollar bill when talking on the phone is relatively free? This is better? High Definition TV. TIVO. E books and Wi-Fi. The terms go on and on. And I am running as fast as I can to catch up. I am so proud that I received my first I Pod this Chanukah. Though two weeks later it is still in the box, waiting for a teenager to come over and program it for me. Volunteers anyone? Without seeming like a curmudgeon, I sometimes wonder whether all of our technological advances have actually made our lives easier and families closer. My wife pointed out that I had become addicted to my e- mail. I was spending about 15 hours a week in the evening e-mailing and surfing the net. People who are on vacation now find that they can take their work with them. Who thought of this one? And why did we agree to it? Our paperless society has somehow become filled with more paper despite technology. We are more connected to each other and somehow we communicate less. We have more time saving devices and someho' we have less time for each other. Well, there is no turning back the clock. (After all who can program their digital clock anyway?) But we can take a moment to pause and think about what our societal goals are all about. We need to use technology to improve our lives. We needed to not become slaves to technology or the latest fad. We need to recognize that sometimes-simple things should remain simple. (Like TV remote controls). And we should recognize that even the greatest advances of technology do not match up to the greatest advances of man?s soul. Look around the world. The world is shrinking but we are not getting along any better. Issues of population control, pollution, war and peace, water, and health still challenge every continent. Technology may lead us to solutions for these problems. But only if the human will to get along and understand each other informs these Sometimes though it easier not to think about such things. For moments like these I just speak into my key which activates my car, hop in the car, and turn on my XM radio to the comedy channel, and drive, recognizing that technology is after all, good for a laugh now and then. p.s.

Having gone to innumerable Jewish funerals in my life, this was my first experience at a Christian funeral service. Although I expected that the service would not in any way resemble a Jewish funeral, I was struck by a couple of marked differences. Firstly, the priest admonished those assembled for acting as though this were a sad event. Their tradition holds that the funeral is a celebration and that the deceased is now in a better place. I fully understand that belief and respect them for it. However, the service did not contain a eulogy as I had assumed it would. It is such an important part of a Jewish funeral and I guess I thought that others also have a similar tradition. I did not know the deceased very well and I had expected that there would be a detailed narrative of his life, his relationship with his family, his accomplishments, etc. I also expected to hear some amusing or poignant anecdotes as is so common at Jewish funerals. Instead, I left there not knowing any more about him than I did before I went. These observations are not meant to criticize or impugn the beliefs or traditions of others, but it made me realize how important the eulogy is to the Jewish funeral service. The word ?eulogy? comes from the Greek and it means ?praise.? In Hebrew, the word we use is hesped and it means ?mourning.? The custom of hesped or giving a eulogy at a funeral dates back to at least Talmudic times. Its purpose is to capture the essence of a person?s life including his or her major accomplishments; to honor the memory of the deceased; and to comfort the bereaved. According to the codes of Jewish law, the goal of the eulogy is to make those present feel the depth and pain of the loss they have suffered. Usually it is the Rabbi who delivers the eulogy. He or she spends time prior to the service with the family of the deceased. It is at this time that the family shares their stories about their loved one. It is then the Rabbi who, when delivering the eulogy, speaks through the eyes and hearts of those who knew and loved him or her best. This eulogy will consist of anecdotes, memories, and often-humorous stories that the family members have shared with the Rabbi. It is also common today for a family member or friend to speak at a funeral in addition to, or sometimes instead of, the Rabbi. This oration may include a poem, a song, a favorite reading or something that the deceased may have written in his or her lifetime. In Orthodox law, there are times that it is forbidden to give a eulogy during a funeral service. This includes theft month of Nisan and during Passover and Sukkot. These are the times when we celebrate God?s blessing of thrPP Jewish people and are therefore times of great joy. However, Reform Jews consider eulogies appropriate at any time and would not enforce these prohibitions. The eulogy is given at the funeral service just before the memorial prayer, the El Male Rachamim. The Talmud states, ?Just as the dead shall be called to account, so shall the eulogizers be called to account.? This implies that it is wrong to over praise in a eulogy and it is just as wrong not to eulogize as the person deserves. While there was a time when only dignitaries were eulogized, this is no longer true. Today, eulogies are given at all funerals. Although the Talmud reminds us that we should not exaggerate the virtues and accomplishments of the deceased, we are permitted to be charitable in offering praise. Also, a eulogy is seen as an opportunity ?to moralize and dwell on the meaning of life ?so that the living shall reflect.?? The Jewish poet Chaim Nachman Bialik wrote one of the better-known eulogies for his own funeral: When I am dead, thus shall you mourn me; There was a man, and see he is no more; Before his time has come, did this man die; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------n And his life?s song was hushed before it ended. ? ? And woe, and woe, yet one more song, Family Purim Carnival One more song he had within him, And lost forever is that song unsung. Forever lost, forever lost.

I will be called to the torah on February' 11,2006 at King David Memorial Chapel. I have one amazing brother who lives in New York. I attend Sig Rogich Middle School where I am a member of National Jr. Honor Society and Student Council. My hobbies include hanging out with my friends, shopping, playing cards, going to the beach, watching sports, and playing sports of all kinds. My favorite sport is dance.

Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas February 2006 5 Your Executive D irector View From My Desk We?ve now moved out of our facility on Emerson (and again, Thank You to everyone who helped to make this happen, timely, efficiently and safely). We?ve had several successful, meaningful Shabbau sendees at King David, and we?ve gotten our Religious School off to a wonderful start at Gibso* Elementary School. Let me share with you the view and sounds from my desk, at our temporary offices. I see Rabbi, walking past with a family that has had a loss recendy, and he?s doing counseling for and with them. I see Philip, walking past with Lillian as they prepare for our next Shabbat sendees. I see Karen talking to Mary, as they get our next bulletin ready for the press. I hear Ayelet in the office next to me, busy planning and coordinating our next Religious School activity. I see Roberta walking by with papers and ads being planned for the Review Journal and Jewish Reporter, for our next series of Adult Education programs and other activities. I hear Angie in the office next to mine, dealing with a vendor and payables. And I see Lynette at her desk on the phone, coordinating various activities for both myself and Ayelet, to ?keep the wheels on the wagon spinning in the same direction at the same time?. All in all, everything is normal. As Rabbi said at his first sermon at King David in December, [and I?m paraphrasing here] - ?It?s like moving from one house to another-you look around, and the surroundings are all different, but you look again, and you ?re surrounded by those in your family who you reeognize, care about and have wonderful relationships with - you?re home?. That?s just how I feel, as I go about doing my usual work and having those same interactions with staff, congregants and potential members that I have had for 4 years now. Different location, but there?s a wonderful ?Sameness? to it all. As I recall from a TV series long-ago, ?Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel?. Thank you, Adam West, and yes, it is the same, but a bit different. The view from my desk is very similar to what it had been. And I look forward to one more variation on this theme - when we move into our new facility, now strongly under construction. Come visit us, and see how we have set up our new home. Thank you and as always to be continued...... Irv To Sisterhood, Mens Club and everyone who volunteered during Gift Wrap. We had another successful year and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.

All of the boring underground stuff is done and the foundations are complete - now the exciting part starts. In the next few weeks you should start to see walls going up and buildings taking shape. It is very exciting. With any project of this size there are many things happening at once. Sometimes there are decisions that need to be made by the ?owner? not the architect or the builder. We have a dedicated group who serves on our construction committee. This group meets with the contractor and our architect regularly to go over the progress, look at any issues that have arisen, and make decisions when necessary. They walk the site and see the progress for themselves. The board receives a report every month from the committee. Our fundraising continues and is on track. When the project is complete we will have, as promised, a manageable mortgage. We will continue to use new member building fund assessments to cover part of the debt service as well as funds from the general fund. The finance committee has already begun working on the 2007 budget. The transition to our temporary facilities has gone very well. Our staff is settled in their new offices, which also provides space for meeting and small worship programs. Friday nights at King David have been well attended and comfortable. Our religious school children are adapting to classes at Gibson Elementary. Just as we did after the building was sold, we are forming another transition committee to do the planning for all of the programs we will be able to do in our new home. After all, we need world-class programming to go along with our new world-class facility. Please let the board members know which program or activity you and/or your family like or which one you think we should add. If you are interested in a particular topic, others may be also. Several months ago I wrote to you explaining the CNT Perpetual Trust. This is designed to be a lasting endowment for the synagogue. A bequeath was received from a congregant, Avis Katz, who recently passed. It came to us with basic instruction that it be used to help pay for B?nai Mitzvah Tutors. Again our board has the restraint to not just spend this windfall but to move it to the trust so that the income from the money will help defray these costs in perpetuity. Please, when you do your estate planning, think of the temple and leave a lasting legacy. Make sure you have your bequeath directed to the CNT Perpetual Trust so the board will know your intentions. This also assures that what you leave will help those for many years to come. If you have questions or wish more information regarding the terms of the trust please contact Irv and he will have someone contact you.
