Steven Weissman and Cantorial Soloist Bella Feldman Oneg sponsored by Sisterhood Meeting Your Needs: YdhrzeitS Our Temple Programs Expand If there is one thing that is constant, it is change. So says the philosopher. So says life itself. And the life of our Temple is no different. Our Temple has witnessed wonderful growth over the past few years. Our Religious School has expanded, and so too have our Temple programs. Yet, each year I try to set a new agenda for our Temple that will help expand our programs and improve our existing ones. This year will be no different. This new year will mark several distinct changes in our Temple staff and programming which should help meet our Temple?s changing needs. Religious School Over the past few months many of you have expressed concerns about the direction of our school, and how we will continue to improve our program in the future. Here are some of the answers: August 7, 1992 Eva Miller, Max Cohen, Blanche Sturm, Eli Coira, Benjamin Kishner, Milton Ferber, Leo Rakor, Marvin Kohnen, Rose Freedman, Alex Gerstern, Albert Goldstein, Joel Berger, Samuel Stahl, Lilly Kollins, Pearl Roth August 14, 1992 Mary Pearl, Harry Sendrow, Ida Orzen, Harry Sendrow, David Sendrow, Gertrude Katzman, Leroy Cherry, Emma Shepard, Jennie Goldberg, Henrietta Bromson, Jeanette Miller 1. Religious School Committee meetings will be more frequent and will serve not only to work on Religious School fundraisers, but to address more frequently parental concerns regarding the school. I will make it a personal priority to attend many of these meetings. If you have a concern, or you want to be involved in improving our school, then this is a committee you should join. Let Jeanne Schomaker, Denise Schnitzer or myself know of your interest. 2. Class schedules have been rearranged in the fall to allow for doubling of larger lower grade classes. Only grades K-5 will meet on Sunday mornings. Many of these grades will have two classes which will allow for more individualized teaching. All upper grades will be meeting on Tuesdays (i.e. 6-9th). The classes will meet from 4:30-6:30 p.m.. Grades 6 & 7 will also meet on Thursdays. This twice weekly program will allow students who are near B?nai Mitzvah to have Hebrew and Judaic studies twice a week See "Rabbi" Page 2... August 21, 1992 John Bergher, David Glickman, David Solomon, Lena Epstein, Louis Epstein, Gerald Sloane, Julius Cohen August 28, 1992 Benjamin Bycel, David Abrams, Harry Rostov, Louis Schwartz ? In Memoriam We record with great sorrow the passing of Bessie Moroff Beloved Grandmother of Ed MintzCongregation Ner Tamid Rabbi - Con?t... (one hour of each). Both Melissa Glovinsky and Bella Feldman will be directly involved in these programs. For those of you with younger age children (grades 4 & 5) who wish additional Hebrew to complement our Sunday program, you may enroll in our Thursday afternoon program as well. 3. There will be electives offered throughout the year for eighth grade and ninth grade students. If this program is successful it will be expanded to include other grades in subsequent years. 4. There will be an expanded art program on Sunday mornings as well as an expanded music program. Bella Feldman will be directly in charge of our Junior Choir and will also be forming a Teen choir which will perform several times a year. These are just some of the changes that are taking place in our Religious School. Our school has grown to be the largest and finest religious school in the city. We need your help and cooperation-get involved in our religious school committee and/or become a room parent. Music At the May Board meeting Bella Feldman was approved as our Cantorial intern on a full time basis. Even as you read this bulletin, Bella has begun her duties at the Temple. Among her many responsibilities, Bella will be in charge of all aspects of music for the Temple including our Adult and Junior Choirs, and our newly forming Teen Choir. Bella will be teaching in our Religious School, Preschool, and Hebrew School. Bella will also be an advisor to our Senior Youth Group. In addition Bella will work along with myself and Melissa Glovinsky in preparing our B?nai Mitzvah students. Bella will add her beautiful voice to all Sabbath Services and B?nai Mitzvah ceremonies. And upon request, Bella will be available to co-officiate with me at various other Temple life cycle events (weddings, funerals, baby namings etc.). Our new accompanist, Lillian Kollar, will be playing on a regular basis at Services beginning this fall. She is an accomplished musician and an expert in the field of Jewish music. These are just some of the many areas that Bella will be involved in. Over her past few years of part time involvement at the Temple we have all grown to admire and appreciate Bella?s wonderful abilities. I know that this new opportunity will be a mutually enjoyable one as Bella becomes an integral part of our Temple program. See "Rabbi" Page 12... It?s already August, and summer is on the downhill. Our thoughts are ahead to school, High Holy Days and beginning the New Year. I?d like to remind you of a few things that need some thought this month. Preschool starts on Wednesday, September 9 at 10:00 a.m.-just around the corner! Our experienced Preschool Director, Julie Gruber, will again supervise a program of wonderful activities geared to our three to five year olds. Our Director will ensure that the children have a meaningful experience in Preschool. Be sure to call the office if you have a child who would benefit from the Preschool experience. The children who attended last year had a great year. Just as the High Holy Days are around the corner, it is time for our Yiskor Memorial book. If you wish the names of your loved ones included, you must return the form by September 7. The form is printed in this bulletin-please do not procrastinate. The letters for the Kol Nidre Appeal will go out this month. I know you will be as generous as possible because you realize that dues do not begin to cover the expenses of our Temple. Healthy Temples create and maintain Jews and Judaism and your support is vital to our survival. Please dig deep for our Kol Nidre Appeal so that we can fill the 40% deficit left after dues are paid. Religious School starts on September 20, 1991, and Jeanne Schomaker tells me we have a very large pre-enrollment. Be sure your children are registered. We are expecting to be filled over capacity and pre-enrollment allows Jeanne to hire the extra teachers and make schedule adjustments so all receive a quality experience. Youth and auxiliary activities are a very important part of the Temple and Jewish life. Our youth groups are very active and open doors to all sorts of activities and friendships for our children. There is a youth group for practically every age child. Starting the habit of Jewish living outside of the home leads to lifelong habits. For adults, the choice is wide?Sisterhood, Brotherhood, Golden Chai, Adult Education, Chavurot, various Temple committees. Join one or several of these groups and enrich your life. Again, my thanks for your confidence. I?m depending on you to join and participate in our activities. You have received committee descriptions and I encourage you to join a See "President" Page 12 ... PAGE 2 Congregation Ner Tamid High Holiday time is fast approaching. As you are aware, your dues mmust be three-quarters paid in order to be eligible for tickets. In order to expedite this procedure, this year tickets will be mailed.

This year tickets will be available to members at $8 for adults and $4 for children. Non-member tickets will be available at $10 for adults and $5 for children. Please join with us in continuing this wonderful tradition. Our Religious School enrollment has already exceeded that of last year at this same time. If you have not already enrolled your child for next year, you should do so as soon as possible. This will enable Mrs. Schomaker to ensure that all necessary teachers and materials have been arranged. m mmik "Next Year in Jerusalem" Congregation Ner Tamid Travels to Israel! On June 6, 1993, Rabbi Akselrad will lead a Congregational trip to Israel. In eleven days, you can absorb the essence of Israel, visiting some unusual sights along with all the important, must-see highlights. You will stay in First Class hotels in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Half your stay is based in Jerusalem, where you will see the old and new quarters of the City of David. You will spend a night in Tiberius at the Sea of Galilee, and spend time sunning on the sands of Tel Aviv. Why not plan on bringing your family? This would be the perfect graduation, confirmation, or B?nai Mitzvah gift for your child. Israel is such an incredible country; what better way to see it than with your family, as well as with your Temple family? The pricing of this trip will be very competitive. Space will be limited.

For we are aware that Israel faces a historic opportunity. The opportunity and challenge lies in the integration of hundreds of thousands of new immigrants from the former Soviet Union, Ethiopia and Eastern Europe, newcomers who represent a bounty of technological and cultural skills that will impact powerfully on the future of the State of Israel. Our challenge? To help provide the investment funds that will enable Israel to create jobs and homes for its newest citizens, affording a bright start to their new lives. Israel has announced it is utilizing all 1992 Bonds proceeds to help resettle the olim. The High Holy Day appeal provides us with an opportunity to help Israel and our new immigrant brethren in a most impressive way, by each of us making our annual Israel Bonds investment the largest ever?easy to do as a result of attractive Bonds rates. Last year almost $1 billion in Israeli securities were sold worldwide to private and institutional investors. And since the inception of the Bonds program in 1951, more that $123 billion in State of Israel securities have been purchased internationally. A few words about specific Bonds securities: 1. A popular security is the Variable Rate Issue (VRI) Bond, which has a minimum annual interest rate of 7.50%, plus half the excess of the average prime rate over 7.50%. The VRI has a minimum subscription of $25,000; the bond matures on June 30, 2004, but it can be redeemed after three years by employee benefit plans, including IRAs, Keoghs and union funds, and by other bondholders after 5 years, on 120 days notice. 2. Individual Variable Rate Issue (IVRI) Bonds are attractive instruments as well. The bond has a current annual rate of 5.75% through September 1992 (for bonds purchased through August 1992; October 1st interest rate will apply to bonds purchased in September). The initial purchase must be at least $5000 ($2,000 or $2,500 for IRAs only). The bond matures 12 years from issue date, but can be redeemed after 3 years by employee benfit plans, including IRAs, Keoghs and union funds, and by other bondholders after 7 years, on 120 days notice. 3. Zero Coupon Savings Bonds have also bee especially popular. These Infrastructure and Absorption Issue Bonds mature at $6,000 on December 31, 2001. The purchase price and effective yield to maturity are subject to change quarterly. Current Income Bonds, available in units or multiples of $500, provide an interest rate of 4.00% annually and mature 15 years from the issue date. All Bonds are backed by the full faith and credit of the State of Israel, which has made every interest and principal payment in full and on time throughout its more that 43-year history. Israel has redeemed more that $7 billion from Israel Bond holders. Your commitment will help ensure Israel?s futue. It counts as a meaningful step forward for Israel and her newest citizens.
