Akselrad, Rabbi Cal Lewis, President Cynthia Wood, Temple Administrator Jeanne Schomaker, Principal Deborah Stadt, Editor Julie Gruber, Preschool Director Schedule of Services July 3, 1992 Services at 7:00 p.m. Services conducted by: Rabbi Akselrad Oneg Sponsored by: Sisterhood July 10, 1992 "Sundae Sabbath" Services at 7:00 p.m. Services conducted by: Rabbi Akselrad Oneg Sponsored by: Jody & Richard Berger July 17, 1992 Shabbat Service Services at 7:00 p.m. Services conducted by: Rabbi Akselrad Oneg Sponsored by: Yvonne & Jerry Gordon Summer Shabbat During the summer, our lives tend to take a frantic turn. The summer is a time for fun, excitement and vacations. The connections we nurture during the winter months become less binding during our rush to fill our summer with "fun". Our Temple family has less of a hold on our lives. The pressure to "vacation?, play and have lots of fun during the summer is intense. Here it is, only the beginning of July, and many of us are yearning for a peaceful weekend, one free of commitments and obligations. We need to slow down, take a deep breath, and relax. Remember what we are doing, what our lives are about. Do we need to fill every moment of summer with a frenzied rush of weekend activity? Or do we, perhaps, need to remind ourselves that the pleasure and peace we know during the winter celebrating Shabbat with our families can be found during the summer also? The summer is a perfect time to begin, or reestablish, our observance of Shabbat as our own, personal, family holiday available to us each week. Our time to reconnect with our families, to reaffirm our commitment to Judaism and to take a collective deep breath and release the week from our minds. Attendence at Shabbat services always falls off during the summer months, with everyone again reappearing on Rosh Hashanah to recommit themselves for another winter. Services in the summer months have a completely different "flavor". The pace is slower, the service abbreviated, the discussion more personal. Onegs during the summer are our chance to reconnect with friends, and schmooze at a more leisurely pace. This summer at CNT, Rabbi Akselrad will lead special educational Shabbat services. The topics of his sermons will be thought provoking and personal. He will seek to inform, educate and challenge our perceptions regarding Judaism. This is a time when we have an opportunity to experience a piece of what Shabbat could and should be, all year. A time of learning, a time of relaxation, a time to "regroup". As an added bonus, this summer there will be two very special Shabbat services for families. On July 10 and August 7 CNT will be hosting two Sundae Sabbaths. The service will conclude with a very special Ice Cream Social. Fill at least part of your summer with Shabbat peace. Look upon this summer as your own "window to Shabbat". July 24, 1992 Services at 7:00 p.m. Services conducted by: Steven Weissman Oneg Sponsored by: Sisterhood July 31, 1992 Services at 7:00 p.m. Services conducted by: Steven Weissman Oneg Sponsored by: Sisterhood July 3 William Goldberg, Roselyn Goldberg, Rose Kestenbaum, Jack Rivkind, Herman Nass, Jonas Ames, Meyer Benedict, Dora Salmon, Herbert Harris, Samuel Mark, Sid Aberman, Violet Advocate, Jennie Adler, Mrs. Anna Kalish July 10 Lou Letizia, Sadie Stromberg, Sam Krashine, Dora Weintraub, Jacob Lader, Ruth Lepman, Abraham Herman, Rose Joffee, Katie Reiser, Irwin Eskeles July 17 Samuel Schlesinger, Katie Reiser, Bernard Ginsberg, David Simon, Robert Levy, Fanny Loeff July 24 Yetta Panken, Charles Wientraub, James Stone, Eugene Schramm, Bernard Bernstein, Dora Kramer, Jane Gittleson, Samuel Liebert July 31 Jayne Benedict, Morris Nathans on, Gussie NewmanRabbi?s Message With summer upon us it is all too easy to become absorbed in ways to escape the terrible heat! For many it is a time to leave for cooler climates, for others a time to stay indoors, and for yet others it is time for watersports. It is also a time, though, for Temple. To be sure, with school out and many committees on summer hiatus, it is easy to give Temple activities a respite. Yet, this is the perfect time to become involved. We are, after all, forming our committees for coming year. We are looking for new people and new ideas, but we need you to step forward. If you have been thinking of becoming involved in the Temple, now is the time to make that thought a reality. Please give me or our new administrator, Cindy Wood, a call and let us tell you how to help shape the direction of our Temple. One more thought: we signal a change of pace at our Shabbat services by moving the time forward one hour. Services in July and August are at 7:00 p.m. They are more relaxed and informal. I enjoy the opportunity to share, in more detail, topics of an informational nature. During the course of the summer I will be talking to you about the meanings of our prayers, interpretation of Pirke Avot, and Jewish viewpoints on a variety of subjects. If you have more time in the summer to relax, then take the time to get back to your Jewish roots. You?ll be glad you did. B ?shalom Sanford D. Akselrod Rabbi Bar Mitzvah ofRotm Berger My name is Ronn Berger. I am a student at Kenny Guinn Junior High School. My hobbies are roller skating, roller blading and playing baseball. On July 11th I will be called to the Torah, and I hope you will all join my family and friends on this happy occasion! Bar Mitzvah of Jeffrey Gordon Jeffrey Gordon was bom July 29, 1979 and will become a Bar Mitzvah on July 18, 1992. Among those witnessing his Bar Mitzvah will be Jeffs immediate family: sister Sara, parents Yvonne & Jerry, and grandparents Mimi and David Gordon. Recently finishing 7th grade at Guinn Jr. High, Jeff achieved honor roll grades. He particularly enjoyed his math, science and computer classes. Outside school, Jeffs favorite activities include endless computer involvement, drama productions, and "hanging out" with friends. President's Message As my second year begins, I want to welcome the new board members: Paul Cohen Roger Ewan Carol Siegel Jerry Polis These well qualified people have accepted the responsibility of helping run our Temple, and are ready to do so with time and energy. I know they will do a fine job. Again, I remind all members that the board needs your input so we know in which direction to guide. We also need your help, support, and participation. Have you been to Temple lately?? Tiininnin beautification committee has brought us new furniture for our foyer and it is very nice. I would like all of us to treat the furniture as we would in our own homes. If this furniture is to last for any time at all, we need to treat it with consideration - no shoes, no food, no rough housing. On the first Friday night that it was delivered, I picked up four plates of food from the cushions. Please, PLEASE, help us keep your facility looking sharp. I have set some goals for the coming year. I think we can increase our membership to 400 families. This is a good figure for our facility and our present staff to handle. If we all find some activity or group to join, we will all benefit from what is offered. We have also been thinking of some long range planning. Our Congregation is 18 years old and we have come a long way from our early beginnings. We need to plan for a sanctuary to complete our facility and better serve our needs. See President, Page 9... CONGREGATION NER TAMID PAGE 2 As you all know, we have been working very hard on the Beautification of our Temple. For those of you who have not been to Services lately, please come by the Temple and you will immediately notice the various changes that have been made. Our Art and Beautification Committee has worked very hard. First they had the exterior entry completely remodeled and landscaped. The new plantings make a wonderful impact when you approach our door. When you enter the Temple, you will notice new furniture and artwork hung in the lobby. This committee has worked very hard to improve the appearance of our Temple. We all thank them very much for the time that they have devoted to this project. In addition, we should all be proud of our new look and work very hard at keeping these new areas looking as beautiful as they do today. Thank you Yvonne Gordon, Joni Akselrad, Christy Cleek, Jan Cobb and Jackie McRitchie. Cynthia Eskeles Wood Temple Administrator Stop By and See our New Look! The Art & Beautification Commmittee, headed by Yvonne Gordon, has worked wonders with our foyer. Stop by and see how beautiful it is.

Marlene Sherman, Treasurer, taking care to see that our books balance; Helen Zliser, Secretary, taking minutes and keeping track of motions carried and tabled; Frances Klamian, Corresponding Secretary, sending cards and flyers to get us to our meetings and programs on time.

Keeping our Membership on an upward track are the Vice Presidents of Membership: Sandy Ewan and Audrey Mishalow. Their smiles will get you every time. Vice Presidents of Programming, Phyllis Mark and Gail Godorov, created programs with decorating, doctors, do-overs and doodlers, lunches and desserts. Betty Schloss and Mami Diamond sent the tributes for us, sad and glad. Barbara Rosen, our Sunshine Chairperson, sent out greetings of all our feelings. We were bom to shop!! Phyllis Lewis and Mary Fox have made it so - when seeing all the great things in our very own gift shop. On Friday night there is always an Oneg, Alma Bemay is there to help in any way. The parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and special days are done by Sophie Pisetsky with great array. Bernice May sells Union Grams which help maintain the Hebrew Union College where our rabbis get their knowledge. When all is said and done, Sandy Ziskrout keeps the donor records for all our members and made one lovely luncheon to thank each and every one. Writing this down for posterity, our Historian, Lois Doctors, had an album put together for all to see. Our Annual Mickey Wilner Great Lady Award, presented by Leo Wilner, went to our great lady, Phyllis Lewis.

We are primarily concerned with Jewish survival, the perpetuation of Jewish values and the reinforcement of our culture and traditions. Shalom. Rita Moses Malkin President CNT Sisterhood Several weeks ago Golden Chai members attended the annual "Take a Senior to Lunch" day luncheon at the Hacienda. We were able to pay most of the cost from our fundraising profits, and we had over six tables, each seating ten people. Besides enjoying lunch and entertainment, we also were lucky enough to have six door prize winners. Next year we hope to purchase our tickets earlier so that we can improve our location. Our next project will be the second annual "Good as New" rummage sale on August 30th. We hope to share this event with Sisterhood and Brotherhood. With everyone?s help we can make this year?s sale even more successful than the last. Proceeds will be used for next year?s senior luncheon. Sisterhood has also asked if we would like to cosponsor a New Year?s Eve party at the Temple. Enough of our members expressed interest to warrant our involvement. More later. We are now paying a small fee to improve the quality of our entertainment. Please join us for our bigger and better programs. Shalom Helen Zliser President CONGREGATION NER TAMID PAGE 6 The CNT Brotherhood is once again geared up for their annual fireworks sale. This year the booth will be located at Arden and E. Charleston, one block East of Lamb. There are many new products, along with the old standby favorites. Come by and stock up for the Fourth.

We went on several hikes, as well as attending a show on early Indian civilization presented by the Park Rangers. Our next adventure was an ovemighter at Mt.

Maybe the 30 or so B?nai Mitzvahs of the coming year would like to come back in 10 or 15 years for lovely weddings with receptions at their own Temple! Maybe the 200+ scheduled events per year will grow to 400. And my usual and enduring goal - INVOLVEMENT. We need to continually see new faces involved in more activities and supporting the various planned events. These are all planned for you and without your support they fail. I know there are capable, energetic people out there who could bring new ideas and leadership to our core of participants. These people need to step forward and be heard and become the leaders and participants that make your Temple "A Special Place to Belong". We need to put effort into our family and our Temple if we are to survive. Jews are made and retained in Temple and we must make a commitment to Judaism so that our children can grow up with the knowledge of their roots and living their Judaism proudly. Take care, have a good summer, see you at Temple. Cal smmmmwmMmmrnmmmmmmmmmmmm:. General Fund To Dr. David Wasserman & Family from Ruth & Charles Amira in loving memory of Milton Wasserman.
