Kids, break out your costumes! Costume parade, Purim shpiel, fun, fun, fun! Rabbi Akselrad to Speak on Trip to Budapest-Vienna-Prague Join us for services on March 4th, as we are in for an extra special treat! Rabbi Akselrad will have just returned from a rabbinic study mission to Eastern Europe visiting the cities of Budapest, Vienna and Prague. In addition he will visit the concentration camps of Terezin and Auschwitz. This special study mission is organized through ARZA/World Union. ARZA/World Union, North America, is an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism and the Reform Movement?s representative to the World Zionist Congress. During his week long visit (Feb 20-27) to this region, Rabbi Akselrad will have an opportunity to visit with Jewish community leaders, political leaders, and historic sites in each of these major cities. Come, Friday, March 4th and listen first hand to Rabbi?s report on the state of anti-semitism and Judaism in Eastern Europe today.From The Rabbi The month of March which usually corresponds to the Hebrew month of Adar brings with it one of the most beloved of Jewish holidays-that of Purim. A fun time celebrated by our Purim Carnival on March 13th and our Purim family services on March 18th, this holiday reminds us that anti-Semitism has ever been a part of the Jewish experience, but nevertheless we have prevailed. It is a holiday that focuses on the importance of the individual to stand up for what he or she believes in, even if it means risking one's life. By the time this rabbi's message is sent to you I will have gone on a very special trip to Eastern Europe where I will visit Jewish communities in Prague, Budapest and Vienna along with concentration camps in Poland. The destruction of these once prosperous Jewish communities is a vivid reminder that Jews have had to pay a high price for their survival. Even so, I know that I will experience more than just the sadness of "what was". I will experience the joy of what Jews and our cultural and religious traditions have created - Synagogues, art, and a rich history that must never be forgotten. The holiday of Purim may dress itself up as purely a children's holiday. But we know that its message is much deeper. Perhaps that is one of the ways that we cope with our past. We mourn our losses, we celebrate our victories, we sanctify our experience through our liturgy, but ultimately we tell the story of what happened so that we will never forget. I look forward to speaking to the Congregation at Shabbat services on March 4th where I will share with you my experiences during this unique rabbinic mission. B?shalom, Rabbi Sanford Akselrad Music Season Sabbath Friday, April 1st Special Guest Steve Dropkin For over 30 years Steve Dropkin has been involved in Jewish music. He began songleading at the Eisner Camp in Great Barrington, MA at the age of 14. Even though Steve has been writing songs little more than 12 years, it is amazing how quickly his songs have found their way into the mainstream of Reform Jewish music. Many of his songs are already standards in Reform camps and religious schools, as well as in worship services. Steve has performed all over the United States, in England, and in Israel; he's been a featured performer at the URJ National Biennial Convention; he's also been at three National NFTY Conventions, as well as 13 CAJE Conferences. He is considered to be a Master Songleader and teacher, and is the founder of the Birmingham Jewish Folk Festival. Steve is currently recording his 5th CD entitled "On That Day", fresh on the heels of his 4th CD "Innerpeace" where he is joined on some tracks with noted Jewish musicians Julie Silver, Rick Recht, Doug Cotier, and Cantor Jessica Roskin. M Join us in welcoming Steve Friday, April 1st, for a very special Music Season Sabbath. Our Ad ? and Children's Choirs will join Steve, along with our Cantorial Soloist Philip Goldstein, to bring you an amazing Jewish music experience. 2 www.lvnertarmd .?rg Committees & Auxiliaries A d u l t L e a r n in g FIRST MONDAYS QVP to Temple Office 733-6292 "First Mondays" continues Mar 7.

March 2005 5 Philip?s Message Tust a jJ* 4" A I'm sure that most of you got to see the wonderful Shabbatone service Feb. 11, alw enjoyed the incredible music of Cantor Lisa Levine. It was a Shabbatone service to remember. I want to thank all the talented singers and musicians that we are so lucky to have here at CNT. First, the Shabbatone band, Glori, Ira, Alan, Jay, Eddie, Linda, Brad and last but not least Mike. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to making this service so memorable. Next, the Adult Choir, thank you all for singing so beautifully and learning the music so quickly. I wish I could list you all here individu?ally, but I don't have the space. Next I'd like to thank Lori Frankl for her rehearsing and leading the Jr. Choir and the Teen Choir members during the service. Thank you to all the Jr. Choir and Teen Choir members, and their parents, for helping to make this service so special. And big thank you to the office staff that help to make these special programs and services go so smoothly. Thanks for your hard work and dedication, it truly makes CNT a special place to belong. Every so often we get to have amazing services like this. But this year, we have another great service to look forward to. Next month on April 1, Steve Dropkin will be here with us for a "regular" Shabbat service that will include the choirs and some of the Shabbatone band members too. How lucky we are to have another great musical service to look forward to. Please plan on attending this Shabbat service. I am bringing Ensemble Vocalists in from San Francisco again to CNT on May 1, for another concert. You may recall them from last year and the great variety of music they sang and performed. Opera, Broadway and world music is the repertoire they are planning for this year's concert. Plan on being wowed and amazed again this year. Tickets will go on sale in April, stay tuned. This year, I am heading up the committee for the Annual Cantors Concert, which will be at CNT on June 5th at 2:00 p.m. I am rewriting the concert format from years past and this years' concert will b^ new, special event to attend. Keep looking for more information to come in future bulletin articles. So, as you can see, this is a very busy start to 2005 for our music program here at CNT.

We all enjoyed looking for the Ground Hog's shadow (which he really did see and so did the children). Of course we all learned about Presidents Lincoln and Washington. We even baked our own Challah to enhance our Sabbath experience. This month will also be an active one here at our school. On Friday, March 25th our students will enjoy celebrating the joyous holiday of Purim. All of the youngsters will dress up in costume and we will get to make our own delicious treats of Hamentashen and even get to make our own masks and give Mislot Manot to our friends. Next month, April, we will have our annual school Seder. All of our children will be ready for this fun experience. It is always a wonderful moment to hear our little ones chant the tradi?tional four questions and participate in all of the traditional holiday rituals. It will be another great day here at CNT. We are already in the enrollment phase. If you are considering a preschool for your child or grandchild, don't be left out because you waited too long. If you're interested please give us a call at the office at 733-6292. TOT SHABBAT Join us for our next service March 4 at 6:30 pm.

M arch 2 0 0 5 5 Your Executive D irector Meet Our Temple Staff This month I would like to introduce more of our office staff to you. These are just a few more people who make everything run so smoothly here at the temple.

These are some of the people who help make this such a ?specfl^ place to belong?. So now when you call, you will be able to put a face with the person on the other end of the line. Irv Roberta, originally from Brooklyn, NY, moved to Las Vegas in 1967. She has been married to Mike for 29 years. Mike has two sons, and he & Roberta have three children together. They joined Ner Tamid in 1995. She began volunteering in the office in 1999, just helping out with whatever needed to be done. It wasn?t long until she was asked to take a permament position in the office. Last year, she was asked to be Program Director and hasn?t looked back since. Roberta Unger Program Director Lois grew up and married in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is the mother of four daughters and the grandmother of five. Miss Lois, as she is called, has been teaching preschool and Hebrew school for the last 26 years in Las Vegas since moving here. She also helped to establish Ner Tamid?s preschool 6 years ago.

Paying ongoing operations will always be a challenge. However, several years ago, our board decided we should have a foundation to help support operations. A foundation keeps principle and invests it so the income can help pay for programs. Our foundation is called the CIMT PERPETUAL TRUST. It is very simply a living trust like many people use in estate planning. The trust can only be changed if a super majority of our board votes for the change, and then approved by a vote of the congregation. The board felt it was important that the trust could be modified if it was necessary. However, if it is changed everyone needs to know about it. So what are the restrictions? First, do not spend the principle. Second, the donor can direct the donation into one of six funds and the money will be used for that purpose only. The funds are to be invested in a conservative manner protecting principle while generating current income. Lastly, there is a separate board of five people who oversee this foundation. Well, just about the time we were discussing this, we received an offer on some land in Utah that was left to the temple many years ago. We took this as a sign and used the proceeds to open the trust account. Over the last five years or so, the temple has received several other non-directed bequeaths. Our board has directed most of these donations to the trust and today we now have a six-figure foundation. This is a good start and our board deserves credit for having resisted spending these windfalls. We all know we are moving soon and we are raising money for that purpose. Recently, everyone received their annual billings, lam not asking you to give money to the foundation right now. What I do want to ask you is to remember the temple in your will. None of us likes to think about our own mortality but we do. When Sandy and I did our planning, one of the gratifying things was allocating part of our estate for charity. If you want more information on the CNT Perpetual Trust, please call the office. The board of overseers - Stewart Blumenfeld, Mike Unger, Debbie Levy, Ira Spector, and Scott Dockswell - can also talk to you about the trust and the funds you may direct your donation into. If each of us remembers the temple, even for a small amount, over time there will be enough assets to make it easier for future boards to pay for operations and keep the temple affordable. If you choose to do this, please direct your bequeath to the CNT Perpetual Trust. As we get ready to build the foundation for our new building, let us also build a foundation for our operating future.

Social Action News % I want to thank NTTY, the students and parents of the Religious School and Janet Schlesinger for their participation in again making Mitzvah Day a success. Plans have been moving along well in preparation for the Teen Inter-Faith Seder April 3rd. If last year?s attendance is any indication, this year?s Seder will be a huge success as well. More information on the Seder will appear in next month?s Bulletin. After evaluating our on-going projects, we are heartened by the difference their success makes in the lives of those who benefit from our efforts. The Committee will be searching in other areas an^| attempting proj ects not yet addressed. We thank the Congregation for your continuing support of the important work your Social Action Committee provides. Do you have a family member or friend who is hospitalized? Rabbi Akselrad would like to help you and your family by visiting Temple members and friends of our congregation who have been hospitalized.
