The themes of freedom, Jewish continu?ity and the potential for a just and peace?ful world are plentifully illustrated through song and symbol, prayer and his?torical memory. Pesach is a major Jewish spring fes?tival, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt over 3,000 years ago. The ritual observance centers around ?the seder,? the prohibition of leaven ?chametz? and the eating of matzah. The final name of Pesach or Pass- over derives from Exodus 12:23, an ac?count of how Moses promised the Israel?ites that G-d would ?pass over? their homes during the night of slaying of the Egyptian?s firstborn. Join Rabbi Akselrad, cantorial solo?ist Bella Feldman and members of the community in celebrating our Passover Seder Friday evening, April 14, at the Sheraton Desert Inn Country Club. Fri?day evening services will be held in the Silverado Room at 5:30 pm followed by the Seder Dinner in the Terrace Room at 6:15 pm. Cost is $40 members; $50 non-members; $15 children age 11 and under. The deadline for your reserva?tions is April 4. For information contact the Temple office at 733-6292. $ How Quickly Time Passes! The Goods & Services Auction is rapidly approaching and your help is greatly need?ed. The success of this year?s auction is essential and can only be achieved if each of us takes the time to participate. Any new item, large or small, that you would like to contribute would help make our event the best yet. If you know of friends, family members or acquaintances who have servic?es to offer (i.e., trips, dinners, beauty servic?es, a weekend in a condo, etc.) have them contact Mary Zone, chairperson, at 733- 6292 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. Mark your calendars for May 6 and come support your Temple at the Goods & Services Auction.

The selection process this year is especially important in light of the fundamental changes taking place as a Congregation continues to expand in number of families, facilities and programs. While the Congregation is blessed by exceptional and dedicated spiritual leaders and administrative personnel, it is lay leaders who reflect the philosophies and wishes of the Congregants and are essential to the vitality and success of the Congregation. I will not disguise the fundamental purpose of this article. I am asking Congregants who are interested in taking a leadership role to come forward and make their interest known. Unlike most other volunteer-led organizations, over the past several years we have had the fortune of having more applicants than positions. I hope that this year is no exception. As I have repeatedly stated (much to the disbelief and scepticism of many of you), being active on the Board is a fulfilling and enjoyable activity and one which I will miss when my term ends. In addition, members of the Board are encouraged and expected to express their individual thoughts and ? Board Positions k Opening Soon The Board of Directors announces the opening positions of Officers and Trustees at the upcoming Annual Meeting to be held on May 23 at 7:30 pm. The meeting will be at Congregation Ner Tamid in the Temple library. If you are interested in serving on the Temple Board, contact Monty in the office at 733-6292. feelings on the full range of matters which come before the Board. We look for diversity. We do not have a ?Contract with the Congregation.? Besides, our budget is balanced and we have prayer in our school. (I realize that one tenet of being a congregational president is to not express your political views, but after six months of Newt Gingrich sound bites I can?t help myself.) There are many fundamental and important issues which need to be addressed over the next two years. I would expect these to include dues and fund-raising reform, expansion of our education programs and a strengthening of the relationship between the Congregation as a whole and each individual Congregant. The Nominating Committee will be recommending names for various positions and I hope yours will be among them. Gerald Gordon SANCTUARY FUND GOAL ? 2.2 million 2.0Meal & Spiel On Saturday, April 29 at 10:00 am, Rabbi Akselrad and the Adult Education Committee will conduct a Meal & Spiel Program following an. abbreviated morn?ing service at Congregation Ner Tamid. The topic to be discussed is ?Auschwitz Revisited: Lessons For Post Holocaust Jews.? Services will be held in front of the Menorah in the lobby area and the discussion in the Temple library. No reservations are required and the cost is free. Everyone is invited to attend this informative discussion. # Yiskor Services Cantorial Soloist Bella Feldman will conduct the Friday morning Pesach Yiskor services on April 21 at 10:00 am at Congregation Ner Tamid. $ AMPERSHIP The Annual Fashion Show was a great success. Over $700 for the campership fund was raised and over $3500 in donations were made to help ten of our religious school students this year. ?We really apprecitate everyone?s help and continuous support,? says Melissa. Thank you to Maxine Gratz for all her help and her dedication to Sisterhood. Rita Malkin and Francis Klamian for their beautiful lunch that everyone enjoyed. To Diane Brady and Baskin & Robbins for their wonderful donations for the raffle, to Macy?s who provided the beautiful clothes for our models to wear. And last but not least, thanks to our wonderful models: Jolie Alhadeff, Lindsey Bernay, Corey Cohen, Alan Evans, Jill Ewan, Rebecca Husney, Lauren Husney, Stephanie Joseph, Jimmy Karlin, David Karlin, Jillian Kugler, Debra Schwartz, Shawn Scott, Abbie Spoor, Amanda Stuart, Michelle Stuart, ?Dustin Tiep, Matt Unger, Jeremy Walton, Samantha Willey and Brenna Yahraus. ? A p ril 1995 Holocaust Seminar On February 15 and 16, the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas, the Clark Coun?ty School District and the Governors Council on Education relating to the Holo?caust, cosponsored a ?Holocaust Educational Seminar? at the Sand?s Expo Convention Cen?ter. With close to 1,000 people in attendance, everyone enjoyed this informative 2-day pro?gram. Jackie Fleekop, Educational Director at Congregation Ner Tamid, had the honor of presenting two ses?sions for Elementary teachers and stu?dents. The program she presented was of life?s valued lessons learned from the Holocaust. Jackie hopes that her lessons on life?s values and human respect will help one child look upon his/her fellow humans with more dignity; and this, she feels, is part of Schindler?s legacy. ?Being part of the Multi-Cultural Ed?ucation Committee of the Clark County Rap With Rabbi The Outreach Committee invites you to come and ?Rap With The Rabbi? on Sunday, April 2 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in the Temple Library at Congregation Ner Tamid. Everything you always wanted to know about Judaism, but were afraid to ask. Do you have questions about life cycle events, holiday observances, grand parenting in an interfaith family or the Jewish concept of G-d? Let Rabbi Akselrad answer these questions and more. The informal discussion is open to the public. For more information and to R.S.V.P. call Nadine Cracraft at 254-2862 or Sue Joseph at 656-9963. School District, the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas? Holocaust Education Commit?tee and the Director of Religious School at Congregation Ner Tamid has its ben?efits. It allowed me the honor of attend?ing a wonderful brunch as an invited guest with Leopold Page,? says Jackie. Mr. Page was the main speaker at the 2- day seminar and is the gentleman who gave the story of Oscar Schindler to the world. The story of Oscar Schindler, who saved many Jews during the Holocaust, reminds us of the ?little spark of good?ness? in all of mankind. $ Jewish Lecture Series Congregation Ner Tamid is proud to host once again The Jewish Lecture Series. The first of three was held on March 23 with guest speaker Dr. Alex Gobnran, Ph.D., director of the Martyrs Memorial and Museum of the Holocaust in Los Angeles. His speech, ?Those Who Dared: Rescuers and Rescued,? dealt with the process by which Yad Vashem determines who receives the ?Righteous Among The Nations? award. The second lecture will be Sunday, April 23, with guest speaker Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, discussing ?Jewish Humor: What The Best Jewish Jokes Say About The Jews.? The third lecture will be Sunday, May 7, with Dr. Steven Windmueller, Ph.D. speaking. $ From left to right are Mila Page, Leopold Page and Jackie Fleekop cA S ^ fteeial ^ (Jo (B elo n g. The Temple is alive with the sound of music!! CNT?s 2nd Annual Jewish Mu?sic Season Concert was an incredible suc?cess! Kol B?Seder filled our Sanctuary last month not only with people, but with a unique feeling of Jewish identity. Chil?dren and adults left with a greater under?standing of many Jewish prayer texts and concepts. That is one of the neatest things about music... You can have fun and learn at the same time!! Thank you to all of our Junior Choir members for adding their voices to the show and thank you Steve Kollins for making the program possible! Our Disney Purim Service was very exciting! Once again, our Junior Choir did an outstanding job. Just as a remind?er to all Junior Choir parents and kids, your last rehearsal of the year is on April 23 and I will be treating you to a ?Pizza Party.? Don?t miss out! Both of our choirs are rehearsing for this year?s Yom Hashoah Service where all of the various Congregations? Choirs will be joining together in song and prayer. This year the community will ob?serve Yom Hashoah at Temple Beth Sho- lom on Thursday, April 27 at 7:00 pm. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy Pesach!

Mazel Tov To Our Very Own Energjzer - Jackie Fleekop Jacqueline Fleekop, Director of Ed?ucation for Congregation Ner Tamid, has been the Network Chairperson for Small Schools and Committees of the Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education during the past three years. This is an appointed position in which she helps advise and connect educators throughout the country in order for them to share programs and ideas. In February, the CAJE conference appointed Jackie the Network Chair?person of all Supplementary schools for the United States? Jewish Com?munity. The Small School Network has become a subcommittee of the Supple?mentary Network. Supplementary schools include one day a week programs, after Religious School and Hebrew High Schools. Jackie is also a member of Las Vegas?s ORT, Hadassah, Clark County Multi- Jacqueline Fleekop Cultural Education Program, Las Vegas Jewish Federation Holocaust Education Committee and a Hebrew High Board member. $ $ C o n g re g a tio n Ner Tamid A p ril 1995 % %% r %%% *r by Jackie Fleekop !!|misrl?jnfT slonfl In February, a group of teenagers, Brian Siegel, Bella Feldman and I went to L. A. The experience was amazing! The teens were well behaved and enthusiastic. The trip was more than a visit to several synagogues, good restaurants, Universal Studios and the Museum of Tolerance. The trip was a real Jewish experience. These teens were able to get to know each other in a very special way. They experienced their Jewishness by thought and action. Doing our morning services in the Barstow bus stop parking lot and Havdalah in a hotel bedroom, may have been more than just a small part of the total picture. The students shared their thoughts about Judaism and did study sessions on Holocaust and gender communications. Each teen took something else away from the Museum of Tolerance. They all seemed to have a stronger pride and identity about themselves as Jews as we left L.A. in the traffic and rain. In March, we had the excitement of Purim. With our Carnival and retelling the history of Queen Esther?s bravery. We owe the success of the Carnival to our Board of Education, our teachers, parents and supporting donors. The M.B. Dalitz eligious School relies greatly on the funds raised during the arnival and from the sales of the Passover candy. Also in March, each class participated in the Museum of Famous Jews. At every level, famous Jews were studied and imitated to establish pride in our people. We look forward to may when the Museum will be set up for all to experience. On March 25th, we had a ?Shul In? at CNT for our M.B. Dalitz fourth and fifth graders. Dinner was served, Havdalah was observed, study sessions, movies and fun. Sunday we had breakfast and a special program which was done for us by UNLV?s Hazardous Waste Department of Environmental Education. All in all we had a great time, but very little sleep. Going Forward!! April is a month of warmth as spring approaches and Passover is celebrated. Our students have been made aware of Passover through a program called the Passover Experience. I feel this method of teaching through song and practice adds some reality to something that happened long ago. The Passover Experience also lets our children know how important they are to our people and to the world. Give your children a gift -- enroll them in Congregation Ner Tamid'5 Preschool Summer Camp...

On Thursday April 27, we will not have regular school, but we expect our students to attend the city wide Yom Hashoah Observance at Temple Beth Sholom. Shalom, Jackie Fleekop Q As an attempt to thoroughly enjoy our gorgeous spring r weather, we at Congregation Ner Tamid Preschool had an out doors ?Pizza Party? that was a smashing suc?cess. We all enjoyed the picnic atmosphere and the chil- O dren frolicked and played in the way that only happy young children can. It was something that no doubt we will be called upon to do again, as it was fun, fun, fun. rFor our next field trip, we plan to take the class to BookStar on Maryland Parkway. We had a field trip there last year and the children eagerly continued their love of books and hopefully this will stand to remind them what great fun books and reading can be in one?s life. We at preschool are always hoping for new enrollees to make things more interesting and the entire class enjoys meeting and getting to know new kids. Our newest classmate, Rachel, has fit in very well and the kids are just crazy about her. Passover will be our next endeavor and we always appreci?ate the help of all the parents to put on our model seder with the Rabbi. The date will be announced at a later time. Helene and I would like to say thanks in advance to the parents will?ingness to help us as they do each year. We will be announcing our Preschool Summer Camp in more detail as we gather more information. The camp will be held June 26 through August 4. The hours will be 9:30 am to 1:00 pm. We are expecting a great turnout.

Rabbis, Cantors and leadership from both the Jewish and non- Jewish communities will participate in the service. Choirs from all of Las Ve?gas?s synagogues will join together in song and prayer. This year?s program will include guest speaker, David Wyman, author of Abandonment of the Jews. Mr. Wyman is a noted historian. His book achieved spe?cial recognition when it was said to have helped influence the U.S. Government?s decision in 1985 to airlift 812 Ethiopian Jews from the Sudan to Israel. People worldwide observe Yom Hashoah and set aside this day to memo?rialize the lives of the 6 million Jews and the 5 million non-Jews who perished in the Nazi concentration camps, gas cham?bers and crematories. This observance seeks to remind all people of the dangers of bigotry and indifference to evil. The community is grateful to the Jewish Federation for its continuing com?mitment to underwrite this program.

Bingo Update March 4 was a big night for both Jerry Gordon and Mary Zone. They attended Brotherhood Bingo and Jerry was certain to inform me that he never wins at bingo, even though he plays every afternoon at the El Cortez and on cruise ships. Imagine his surprise when he struck it rich on 0-65. Yvonne said he would spend the $25 winnings on a custom license plate frame that says, ?This Car Stops At All Temple Bingo Games.? Mary Zone and her mother, Rachel appeared to be professional Bingo counters, but alas, neither one had won a game. Then came the big drawing for the grand prize; a 21" color television with remote. Mary, who was the first to buy raffle tickets, was the big winner of the Magnavox. Last seen were Maty and Rachel arguing over whose room the set would go in. Good luck, Rachel! On March 12, we helped at the Purim Carnival and greeted and served all participants, both young and old. This month?s Brotherhood project is the mailing of Yom Hashoah candles. These candles are lit in homes on the evening of April 26 in remembrance of the victims during the Holocaust. Your Temple Brotherhood mails these candles to all Temple members and we gratefully accept your generous donations so we may continue this program year after year. When you receive your candle, please make a commitment to light it on April 26 and to make a contribution to Brotherhood in remembrance of all the victims. On April 27, there will be a city-wide observance of Yom Hashoah at Temple Beth Shalom. We always have a signif?icant attendance from Ner Tamid, so make plans to be there. May 6 is the Temple?s Goods and Services Auction. This is the single largest fund raiser for our Temple and we need to raise more funds this year than ever before. Please ask any business people you know, especially those with whom you spend money, to donate to our event. If someone has large, expensive items to donate, like perhaps a television, call me and we?ll arrange for a Brother?hood member to pick it up. A heavy load which is shared by many becomes light as a feather. The greater the participation by you, the Temple members, the greater our Congregation becomes. We can support many more Temple functions when we have many more members participating. Your Temple Brotherhood is, along with Sisterhood, contributing to the Campership program. This is only one of the many Temple functions which we help support. June 10 is the Brotherhood Golf Outing at Angel Park. Come and show off your putter or borrow one of ours. The next Brotherhood meeting is on April 2 at 9:30 am in the Temple library. Come out and meet the Brotherhood members. ? Golden Chcii The members of Golden Chai have been fortunate in that our program chairperson has done a fabulous job and has made us all happy. We?ve had one great program after another. At the last few meetings, we?ve had outstanding singers, dancers, as well as newscaster Ricky Cheese from Channel 3, who is charming and delightful and an interesting speaker as well. We hope more Temple seniors will join us and have the opportunity to enjoy our programs. We have drawings and games after our meetings and the winners are nevej^^ disappointed. That?s another good reasoi^^ to join Golden Chai. Something new that has been added is our involvement with the seniors of Temple Beth Shalom. Last year they invited us to be guests at a luncheon meeting. Recently we shared a bus with them for a day?s outing at Stateline. It was great fun and we hope to have more events for both groups to enjoy. The Chai board is now considering how to handle the summer months when the Temple construction will cause the Social Hall to be closed. We expect to have a plan to present to our members in the near future. We will try hard to keep our meetings going without pause all year long. Thanks to all our members for your understanding and cooperation. $ Shalom, Helen Zliser and George Lipshaw tm C o n g re g a tio n Ner Tamid A p ril 1995 L Sisterhood Ladies...

It?s hard for me to realize that I am not that six year old child I once was. Life keeps moving on and times are a changing. Lucy, Donna and Harriet are no longer my role models, but Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Dole are. Our Sisterhood is made up of many women. The demo?graphics prove that the women of Sisterhood are women who come in all shapes, sizes, view points, ideas, economic backgrounds and even hair color. She is a very independent woman - a woman who can complete most any task given to her. However, if each of these women are pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, just imagine what we can accomplish when we take pieces of this jigsaw puzzle and place them together, and together we make a team. We will have created a beautiful piece of art. This year we have accomplished so much because our Sisterhood has worked together so lovingly. We care about our youth, our (members and our synagogue. And I am proud to say, it shows. I On February 26, Melissa Glovinsky was given the task to chair our annual Campership Fundraiser Fashion Show. There are not enough ?thank you?s? and ?great job? that can fully express Sisterhood?s gratitude for Melissa?s excellent work. Sisterhood would like to thank everyone involved from models to donors, who gave their time and or money to make this fund?raiser a wonderful success! We would especially like to thank Brotherhood for their very generous donation towards this cause. Our Sisterhood is working overtime to include YOU in this puzzle. There will be an ?All Women?s Seder? cochaired by Eileen Kollins and Rita Malkin. It will take place at Congregation Ner Tamid on Thursday evening, April 20 at 6:00 pm. The cost for Sisterhood members is $7.50 and for those of you who have not had the opportunity to join Sisterhood, the cost is $10.00. (If you join Sisterhood in April, you will be a Sisterhood member for the year of 1995 through June of 1996). The cost to join is $25 annually. Mail your check to the Temple in care of Ronae Fink. Be sure to ^ your calendars and join us for our very first ?All Women?s Seder? at Ner Tamid. R.S.V.R is a must by April 15. Call Maxine at 898-3592.

Harper Klamian with the help of Frances Klamian, Idie Klamian, Mary Zone, Leah Kamer, Sheryl Webb, Jimmy and David Karlin, Stephanie Joseph, Michelle Stuart, Samantha Willey and of course, Bella Feldman, made the event again a true success. A special thank you to Judy Klein for her help in making this program work. Every one of us can make a difference. We want you to take your own very special piece of this jigsaw puzzle and help our Sisterhood grow stronger. As you can see, one of our functions is to help our youth. If we don?t help make our puzzle strong, healthy and kept intact today, there?s a good chance of not having one of togetherness, strength and love for our children and grandchildren tomorrow. $ Shalom, Maxine -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------\ Sisterhood Tribute To Janis Rounds Spur of the moment - good wishes From your Canasta Buddies Judy, Phyllis, Mary S_________________________________________________________________4 Congregation NerTamid's H 263-5960 otline Call The Recorded Message For Upcoming Events T.N.T. ?
