J No doubt many of you read recent media reports on a controversial new book out, The Nurture Assumption: Why children Turn Out the Way They Do: Parents Matter Less Than You Think and Peers Matter More by Judith Rich Harris. The author's major thesis is that the role of the parent isn't as significant as scientists once believed. Aside from what we contribute genetically, our influence on how they develop is minimal. What genes don't do, peers do. While I am not a scientist, I am a parent and a rabbi and somehow this thesis flies in the face of everything that I had been taught and believe. While no doubt we have all witnessed and wondered how our children can grow up to be such vastly different people, having been raised in the same household I think that it is both dangerous and dismissive of the role of parents to believe that we have little impact upon our children. Again, without question, our chil?dren's peers have a major influence, especially during their teen years, as to what tney feel is important. But what is the standard by which they measure these opinions if not what they have been taught by their parents who in turn have been influenced by their parents, and Dlease Note: An apology is due to our dear mem- ber, Irene Chenin. Ner name was f erroneously listed on the yom Nip- pur yiskor List. ?Ifiere aren?t F enough words to express how much JF we regret this mistake and apolo- M gizejor arm embarrassment or pain we may have caused her ana her Jr, family. Ide wish Irene many N happy and healthy years to come! C ohqreqa TioN Ner jAM/d religious teachings. Judaism teach?es us to "honor our father and mother." We do so out of a sign of respect. But if respect were the only reason, there would be another commandment, "honor thy chil?dren." The commandment serves as a reminder that our parents not only give us life, but they give us tools by which to lead our lives. But as with everything, our impact on our children is a balance of many factors. They learn from their peers, they learn from their teachers, they learn from media sources, and their own ability to synthesize information and opinions from all these sources. Ultimately, if we are indeed successful parents, then we have given our children the ability to think things through themselves and make their own choices. But this too is gift that comes not from ones genes, but from ones heart.

October is supposed to be Fall. In most areas of the country, temper?atures are becoming cooler and leaves are changing from green to gold. Las Vegas is different, so who knows what will happen here. The one thing I do know is that the Jewish Calendar and Holidays are related to the seasons. This month we will celebrate Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Three very important holidays. Suk?kot is mu favorite holiday because it reminds us of the Temple, the harvest, and to remember to be thankful. The holiday of Thanksgiv?ing was taken from the Bible by the pilgrims as they shared the har?vest with the Indians. Our religious school will celebrate all of these holidays as we get into the full swing of the school year. This year the parents will receive not only a monthly progress report, but will receive a newsletter as well. I hope all of our parents will help separate items for our parking lot sale which will be on October 18*, and attend our Open House, Sun?day, October 25* from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 pm. If parents get involved, their children will know that religious school is important. This is going to be a great year for your children, our staff and you.

We all enjoyed our High oliday experience at our beautifrjl new school. It was a pleasure watching the children say the blessing over "Apples Dipped in Honey" as they savored each bite of the sweet holiday treat. The bous 'the delightful hear the sounds these and girls all got a chance to blow Shotar (Ram?s Horn) and it was ful to ? little ones could make from this traditional instrument. We made Shanah Tova Cards for our parents and even our friends and wished each other a hearty L'Shanah Tova Tikatevu (Happy New Year Greet?ing). The children had a taste of the round Challah with raisins and we all said we were sorry to each other, for ^^lings we had done that were not so ^?se this last year. We said we ^would be kind to each other and our parents this new year of 5759. Our class even took a Tashlick walk to cast our sins away. It was sure an interesting experience hearing how each of these 2-5 uear olds expressed their feelings of hope and renewal at this most holy time of the year. Our classrooms are filled with exuberant and delightful youngsters who enjoy coming and sharing a learning experience with their peers and dedicated teachers. This month we will celebrate Sukkot and Simchat Torah with song and lots of fun. We will decorate the Sukkah and make flags and even have our own Simchat Torah Parade. I would like to take this opportunity to thank some dedicated people for helping get our "Special Place to Belong Preschool going so beautiful?ly. Thank you Rabbi, Monty, our great office staff, Phyllis, Karen, and Mary. Also Jill and Jackie, you are all the greatest. The custodial staff, Steve, Tom and Gary. A special thank you to Scott Stolberg, his Committee, and Jacky Rosen. We all worked to make our school one that is truly a special place.
