Rabbi Akselrad will be traveling to Israel Janu?ary 1st through 13th, on a special Rabbinic study mission. Rabbi Akselrad will be traveling via El A1 Airlines along with rabbinic colleagues from around the United States representing all branches of Juda?ism. During his stay, Rabbi Akselrad will be primarily in Jerusalem, although various excursions have been planned. In addition, Rabbi Akselrad will attend a six day convention, where he will be briefed by various Israeli dignitaries and Middle East specialists on current issues affecting Israel. These are extremely important times for the State of Israel. Over the past two years, Israel has had to cope with the massive immigration from the Soviet Union and Ethiopia, as well as the devastating impact of the Gulf War. Over the next few months Israel will continue to strive for peace with neighbors who have sought to destroy the nation since 1948. Rabbi Akselrad will deliver a special Congrega?tional Report regarding his trip at Friday night Shabbat services on January 24th. An evening not to be missed.

Phillips A1 Moll Regina Newman Julius Glasser Harry Lader Ira Moss Ruth Koffler Anna ReichelCongregation Ner Tamid Rabbi?s Message ?A New Year?s Resolution: Watching What We Say? The holidays are a family time. We sit around the table with family we often haven?t seen for a long time. We eat ourselves silly. It?s catch up time, time to find out what our family and friends have been doing for the past year. But sometimes we find our conversation slipping from the informa?tional to, well, shall we say semi-informational? Well, let?s just say it, our conversation turns to GOSSIP! ?Did you see Uncle ...? I can?t believe he divorced his wife for that young thing!? ?Did you see what... was wearing? I can?t believe that she thinks she?s still 16!? ?Did you know that Cousin ... is finally off drugs? But is he into some weird things...? What were the lyrics to that song? ?Tis the season to be jolly, Tra la la...??! But the laugh is on us. For, to be honest, such conversation, although a bit more inviting at such occasions, occurs throughout the year, and is as old as humanity. Most religions have admonitions about our use of speech. Why? Most likely because speech is so fundamental to our ability to commu?nicate and share our hopes and dreams. But speech can do as much harm as good if we are not careful. I am reminded of the story of a king who held a contest in which he challenged the members of his kingdom to bring him two items, something terrible and something wonderful. One man searched, and brought him a baked tongue. He went out for the second item, and brought back ... a baked tongue! The king looked at the man and asked him ?Why have you brought me the same item twice?? ?Because/? answered the man, ? when the tongue is good, there is nothing betf?- and when it is bad, there is nothing more terrible.? ATTENTION: All 1993 Bar/Bat Mitzvah Parants: The Temple office has sent infor?mation regarding scheduling your child?s B?nai Mitzvah date. Dates will be decided during mid-January, and parents will be informed of their child?s date by early February. It is ex?tremely important for you to return your date preference to the Rabbi. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR B?NAI MITZVAH INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT SHERYL OR DEBBIE IN THE OFFICE AT 733- 6292. If you have any questions or special concerns regarding this pro?cess, please contact Rabbi Akselrad. Please note that dates for 1992 have already been sched?uled. If you have not already spoken with the Rabbi regard?ing 1992 dates, please do so im?mediately. FAMILY SHABBAT SERVICE January 17th Fifth Grade Shabbat Dinner Family Service 7:30 p.m. ?

I hope we all grow wiser and more aware of what really has meaning in our lives: children, family, community and the state of our world. Looking back over our accomplishments in 1991,1 feel we should be proud of our growth. Our school has 210 students, our preschool has 14 children, 120 children participate in our youth activities, and our Temple family has grown to 380 members. We cannot rest on our laurels in 1992 - we must continue our growth and we must continually strive to improve the quality of our service to all. The first change you will notice in 1992 is the beautification of our front entry area. Sometimes one little thing causes a domino effect - perhaps it was our beautiful stained glass window. Our entry will be more attractive and following its completion, we will begin to improve the foyer area. Who knows where this will lead? We have some very real challenges for 1992. We need to continue the growth of our membership and we need to keep all of our ?old? new members. Retention is always a challenge and with this in mind, we are going to begin a Havorah program. If you are interested or have previous experience in Havurah, please contact the office. We will contact you soon. This is also a program to get more people involved - my continual adage. My last comment for this month - we are going to have a long range plan for facility growth and improvement. Abe Fox has certainly improved the kitchen! In addition to the huge commercial refrigerator and freezer, we now have a convection oven. Thanks Abe - we really appreciate your help. Best in 1992, __Cal___________________________________________________ RABBI?S MESSAGE (cont.) Speech. Communication. Words. Oh, so very important in our getting along with our fellow human beings, and for good reason. With the slip of a tongue we can hurt and maim just as surely as if we did it with a sword, while with a precisely given compli?ment we can give someone a wonder?ful good feeling, unlike any other, as if we had bestowed upon them a mil?lion dollars. As a Rabbi I find myself talking with a myriad of different people. I talk with people from all walks of life. People who are CEO?s and middle management. People who are lower on the rungs of the corporate ladder. I speak with volunteers, homemak?ers, and retirees; and I have noticed that there is a common lament which links all of these people together. The need for praise. It is usually expressed as follows: ?Rabbi, would it hurt my son/boss/ dad/friend/spouse to say a nice work? Rabbi, I am his father/co-worker/ friend/spouse. Can?t they take the time to say a kind work? What would it cost?? We are all looking, at one time or another, for that simple word, that simple kindness that can bolster our egos, and make us feel appreciated. But too often we are preoccupied, not with saying nice things, or even lis?tening to nice things, but with our criticism of others. Someone once noticed that there are three kinds of speech - the lowest is to talk about people, the next is to talk about things, and the highest is to talk about ideas. It is a good message to end this year of 1991, and an even better one to begin 1992. In the words of the psalmist of old: ?May the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart be ac?ceptable, be acceptable in thy sight, oh Lord.? B?shalom mmmmmmmm Congregation Ner Tamid Page 3 Sanford D.

Pa ere 5Congregation Ner Tamid mmma A LTOK M HWOTS IMSI rr Congregation Ner Tamid Celebrates Cb&nukmb On December 6th the Congregation came together to celebrate the light of rededication. The Social Hall was filled to capacity with families enjoying a beautifully catered Shabbat dinner and the sounds of Chanukah, serenaded by Sasha with his violin. The children sang and everyone had a wonderful time. Immediately before the service the children lit their hanukiyot, and the light from the burning candles lent a special quality to the evening. There was dancing in the aisles, led by the Rabbi and followed by all the children. Hester Katzman, a storyteller of renown, wove a magical tale of a small goat and a man who found themselves stranded in a haystack during a snowstorm. The children were enthralled, and Ms. Katzman and the entire evening was a rousing success. The next family service is January 17th at 7:30 p.m. The Fifth grade parents are sponsoring the oneg. Hope to see you there. ^? ............. ...................V A LOOK M WMTfS HO OOSM (r rr Goods & Services Golden Bid N?Buy Radio Daze It is never too early to start announcing CNT?s Step back with us to most exciting & fun fundraiser of the year. a time when a hot date Our 2nd annual ?Goods & Services: Bid N?

In the past months we have had visits from the Police and Fire de?partments. The children (and the teachers) had a great time. We also had very special visits from Rabbi Akselrad for the holidays. The chil?dren enjoyed his stories, and couldn?t wait to share them with their par?ents and siblings. We are looking ahead to the rest of our first year, knowing it will be as wonderful as the first four months. We look forward to sharing our news with all the community.

In addition to the opportunities to participate in a variety of sports, games, and art activities within a Jewish environment, campers can make friendships that last a life?time! Campers gain a sense of inde?pendence and self confidence. These children come back to us with a stronger Jewish connection. For these reasons our Temple Sisterhood has created a campership program. To find out more about what we have to offer, please attend a program on Sun?day, January 26th at 9:00 a.m. in the CNT Social Hall.
