Digital ID


Congregation Ner Tamid 1992-93. The annual honor is given to a congregant of our Temple who has shown outstanding leadership in the Temple. This event, along with the New Member Shabbat, will be on November 1 3, 1992 at 7:30 p.m. We invite all of our new members to join us for a special Shabbat celebration. New members, please remember that there will be a special group picture taken with Helen Zliser at 7:00 p.m. sharp. This picture will go on permanent display at the Temple. Please come with your families and become a part of Congregation Ner Tamid history. Helen Zliser is a wonderful example of commitment and hard work. She has been a member of Congregation Ner Tamid only three short years. She is admired by everyone whose heart she touches. She is a person who takes charge and volunteers her time and efforts for the benefit of those around her. Helen and her husband Bill moved to Las Vegas in 1989 from the Los Angeles area. They originally hail from St. Louis and Chicago,but lived in the Southern California area for over forty years. While there, Helen became involved in the Jewish community in the San Fernando Valley. Among her roles, she sat on the Board of Temple Emet in Woodland Hills, California and held almost every position on the Boarcj of the Sisterhood of that Temple. After serving for two terms as Sisterhood president at Temple Emet, Helen was elected to the Board of the Western Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, where she served for two years. Helen has been honored by almost every organization that she has worked with and is especially proud of being honored two successive times by the Women's Conference of the Jewish Federation Council of the Greater Los Angeles, San Fernando Region.

Our hymns would rise up, our thanks would asoend. O god, Your wonders are endless, yet we do not see! This prayer has always been a most meaningful one to me personally for it touches upon our tendency to take life for granted. I have always felt that there is a duality to our lives. On the one hand, in order to survive and maneuver through our every day lives, we must take many things for granted. After all, if we could not count 01 the stability of relationships, our jobs, our environment, we would have to be reacting to a new situation every day. On the other hand, this prayer, a prayer of thanksgiving, reminds us that life does indeed change. Our siddur admonishes us to look at the preciousness of the world each and every day. It is ironic, but, as our siddur points out so beautifully, that which enters our lives most frequently is what we take for granted most easily. Yet, it is precisely those things that we must daily give thanks. After all, where would we be without the rising of the sun? Or the love of our family and friends? November marks the American holiday of Thanksgiving. As Jews we remember that this cherished holiday has its roots in our own festival of Sukkot. And as Jews we recognize that it is a special mitzvah to give thanks not just once a year, but each and every day of our lives. As one sage said so wisely, "Let us count our blessings even more than we count on our blessings." B?shalom, Rabbi Sanford D. Akselrad Congregant of the Year ( continued from page 1 ) For outside activities, Helen was a founding Board member of B?nai B?rith Women, Summerlin Chapter and ORT, Meadows Chapter. All of our new members should learn a valuable lesson from Helen. It doesn?t take a long time for a new member to enter the mainstream of community life and make an outstanding contribution. We at Congregation New Tamid are proud of Helen?s accomplishments. JOIN US FOR OUR NEW MEMBER SABBATH Friday, November 13th at 730 p.m. AND OUR FAMILY SHABBAT bsOO pan. 5th Grade Shabbat Dinner 730 p.m. Family Service Babysitting available on both dates ! PAGE 2 President?s Message Fall is in the air and the High Holiday season is over. We added inore members and more children to our school. There are some 'pace problems but these are things that can be worked our as long as we have competent people - and we do. Thanks to all of you for your support of last month?s activities. High Holidays were inspirational. The Rabbi gave some meaningful sermons and the choir, accompanist, and Bella were wonderful. Special thanks to Hortense Alper for her donation of the beautiful Steinway Grand Piano which sounds so beautiful. The whole experience was very well orchestrated. I also want to thank all of you who gave so generously to our Kol Nidre Appeal. Our auxiliaries are actively planning fall events. These need all of our support. Sisterhood has its annual Chanukah Bazaar and Brotherhood will again sponsor the blood drive. Check the bulletin for more information about the event and who to contact to lend your help. If you have visited the office since early October you have met our new administrator, Robyn Galbraith. She comes to use with seven years experience in Temple administration. Robyn looks forward to meeting all of us. I?m still making my pitch for participation from both new and old members. I hope that you will want to participate at Friday night services by having an aliyah. Please leave a message for Alan )/ann at the Temple office if you are interested. Remember we have a dress code for services: jackets and ties for men and dresses or skirts for women. Get active in the Temple - join a committee - be a participating part of our Temple family. As we grow we need new ideas and new ways to look at old ideas. I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for and we need to take time to remember the less fortunate.

Those of you who attended High Holiday services had the pleasure of hearing our Adult and Teen Choirs, and our accompanist Lillian Kollar. We also featured new soloists and instrumentalists. I have heard nothing but rave reviews. Mazel Tov to all of you for a job well done. Gracing Yam Kippur services was a beautiful new piano lovingly donated in memory of Samuel Alper, by his wife, Hortense. We are all thrilled and blessed to have such an incredible instrument. It?s clarity and melodic tone will add so much to all of our servioes. Thank you Hortense. Teen Choir is geared for students 6th grade and older. They will perform for special servioes throughout the year. Anyone interested please call the Temple office and leave your name and telephone number so we can inform you about rehearsals. Teen Choir is a great way to make new friends and have learning about Judaism. Our Junior Choir started off the year strong, leading both the Sukkot and Simchat Torah services. Lori Frank! and I are very excited about working with these dynamic children. We have over twenty students and it?s not too late to join. For more information, please contact the Temple office. The New Year brings many exciting and I?m looking forward to enriching our Congregation with expanded music programs.

T.N.T. The first T.N.T. meeting for the year was held after Religious School on September 22nd. The attendance was incredible, with more than twenty 6th, 7th, and 8th graders staying for the meeting. Because many of the kids did not have an opportunity to eat earlier that evening, they were encouraged to bring "Sack Dinners". This will probably be our standard practice since our General Meetings will be held one Tuesday a month following Religious School, (however, in an effort to have as much participation from our Temple Family as possible, our main activities will be held on weekends.) During the meeting, the first order of business was to elect officers. Sometimes as the elections proceeded, it seemed that the individuals running for offices outnumbered the voters, but that just goes to show all of us the caliber of the students who are joining this group. They all want to make a difference. Our officers for the 1992-1993 school year are: President: Abbie Spoor y/ice President: Joey Unger Secret ary/Treasurer: Jeff Gordon Historian: Danny Chenin Parliamentarian: Brad Silverstein B'nai Mitzvahs My name it Nathaniel Scheinbaum. I am in 7th grade at Thurman White Jr. High School. I love to play baseball, golf, and collect baseball cards. On November 21st, 1992 I will be called to the Torah. All of my friends and family will be there. I am looking forward to my special day. Next, under the direction of their new board, another election was held to vote on the activities they would most like to have during the upcoming year. Once again the enthusiasm was incredible. The three activities that we will try to plan are: ice skating, a sleep over, and (if possible) snow skiing or a mountain day. (As you can see, most of these activities will require additional chaperones and drivers. If you are interested in helping us out, please leave a message for Debbie Sideman or myself at the Temple and we will contact you about the arrangements.) T.N.T. is on its way to having a very "explosive" year and we will keep you posted on our activities! Have a happy and healthy New Year, Sheryl Chenin-Webb, T.N.T Advisor Youth Activities Committee Needs Adult Sponsors The Youth Activities Committee is still seeking adult sponsors to handle our GRADES 2-3 Youth Program for this school year and also seeking anyone who is interested in serving on the YAC for this year. If anyone is interested in either program, please contact Bella Feldman at the Temple or Paul Cohen.

She has provided us with a wide variety of musicians, speakers, and games -- something for everyone. At this time we have over 150 paid members who will be able to attend our annual Chanukah luncheon. It will again be at the Riviera, but the menu will be more suitable for the occasion than last year. Vice-president, George Lipshaw, is in charge and has everything well under control. We are very saddened by the Illness of Morris Brickman and the passing away of Ida Blumenfeld. Our prayers and condolences are with them and their families. Hopefully, the Sisterhood and Golden Chai will be able to work out plans for a New Year?s Eve party. We will keep you informed. Again, we invite all the Temple seniors to join us on the first and third Thursday of each month at noon. We have lunch, a short meeting, and a program. Afterward, there are games for anyone who wishes to remain. Come as our guest for one meeting, and we feel sure that you?ll want to come again.

The speaker will be our own Rabbi Sanford Akselrad who will talk about current Jewish affairs. Donations will be appreciated The next meeting of the Brotherhood will be on November 12, 1992 at 7:00 p.m. Bagels, cream cheese, and coffee will be served. Social Action Committee The Social Action Committee began the New Year with a variety of programs. On September 20th, Congregation Ner Tamid held an incredibly successful Political Forum. The event was orchestrated by Court Commissioner, Don Schlesinger, who made all the neoessary arrangements for the political participants and the journalist panelists. Katherine Scott was instrumental in providing the necessary publicity that led to the turnout of over 130 people, most of whom were not congregants. The evening was filled with interesting discussion and debate. Among the guest journalists was Adrian Havas, one of our members, who asked some of the more probing questions of the evening. Several articles followed the meeting in the Review-Joumal. It was an evening to remember. A special thank you should also go to Harry and Betty Schloss for their coordination of our voter registration drive. They were responsible for signing up several voters during the first Sunday of religious school and also at the Political Forum. During the High Holiday period we had our second annual canned food drive for the needy. Although we did not quite reach our goal of one thousand pounds, there was a great deal of nonperishable food collected that will be distributed by Bill Feldman, Executive Director of the Jewish Family Service. Thank you to all of you who brought in food items. It is a mitzvah of the highest order. If you have an interest in getting a living will prepared free of charge, please call the Ner Tamid office and leave your name and telephone number. Gil Shaw, a charter member, has offered to prepare these for our congregation. During the Chanukah Bazaar, our committee is co-sponsoring with the Brotherhood, our second annual Blood Drive. We hope to repeat last year?s performance of too many donors to allow all of them to give in our allotted time. We have a new project for the month of December. We will join with representatives from Methodist and Lutheran congregations who have established a program of food distribution for homeless families. They have government grants to purchase the food and then give the food to specific people more than six times during the course of a year. The families are monitored so the distribution is fair and reasonable. We will handle food distribution on Christmas and other occasions as needed, so the other volunteers can have a break from their volunteering responsibilities. We are pleased that several new congregants have joined our committee, but we always have room for more. If you are interested, please contact the Temple offioe or call Eileen Kollins at 873-1413.Congregation Ner Tamid Religious School Apologies We apologize for the poor quality of the picture of Scott Yahraus in our last month?s bulletin.
