1 Voice of the People OGV KUE TEMPLE BETH AM AFFILIATED WITH THE UNITED SYNAGOGUE OF CONSERVATIVE JUDAISM VOL 11, NO. 8 Nisan - Iyyar, 5771 May, 2011 From our President As Temple Beth Am approaches its 75th anniversary this June, we are at a moment in our collective history that encompasses generations of Judaism. Services first began in 1935 with 21 families in an empty food market. The American Hebrew Institute, as we were then known, first purchased property on La Cienega in 1936, changed its name to Olympic Jewish Center in 1940, became part of United Synagogue in 1946, celebrated the creation of the modern State of Israel in 1948, installed Rabbi Jacob Pressman in 1950, and changed its name to Temple Beth Am in The congregation continued to grow, expanding its schools, and building its current sanctuary in Numerous milestone events took place in the ensuing decades. Highlights included the special memorials following President Kennedy s assassination, when 7,000 mourners attended services at Beth Am. And in 1972, TBA initiated the Israel Expo West where 50,000 participated in a weeklong exposition, thereby confirming Beth Am as a prominent Conservative temple. Rabbi Joel Rembaum went from congregant to senior Rabbi in Several generations from our beginning, a new and growing community of committed Conservative Jews continued our journey. Under Rabbi Rembaum s leadership, Temple Beth Am thrived, further expanding its schools, renovating its facility, constructing a new school building in 1994, and renovating and re-dedicating the Temple as the Ziering Family Synagogue Center in Our Pressman Academy school has continued to expand and enrich its programming under the leadership of Rabbi Mitch Malkus where it has received national recognition. When Rabbi Adam Kligfeld became our senior Rabbi in 2009, we were blessed to have several generations of our rabbinic and lay leadership here to welcome him. I am thrilled that we can build upon this rich history and I join in the excitement of welcoming Canter Magda Fishman to work with Rabbi Kligfeld and our other Senior Staff and leadership to lead us in revitalizing our musical culture. Please join us June 5 at our 75th anniversary celebration of Temple Beth Am, Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow. The program will highlight our extensive archives dating back to our beginning, will include performances by our future leaders--the students of Rabbi Jacob Pressman Academy--and will culminate with a tasty dinner and tribute to our community s visionary leaders. The proceeds will strengthen the many programs of our Temple and its Schools ensuring our doors are open to Conservative Judaism for generations to come. I look forward to seeing you there! Happy 75th Robert Ring, President WHAT S INSIDE: Page 4: Purim Photos

2 TEMPLE BETH AM 1039 S. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles, CA (fax) Kol Ha am 2 To reach an operator, dial SCHOOL PHONE LINE School Fax: TEMPLE BETH AM is an egalitarian Conservative synagogue that is devoted to spiritual and religious enrichment and that values Jewish tradition while embracing innovation. Its many programs serve a multi-generational congregation. These include multiple opportunities for: worship of god, adult learning, education of children and families, acts of loving kindness, and outreach to those seeking community and meaning in their lives. The synagogue is committed to the institutions of Conservative Judaism, the broader Jewish community, the State of Israel and the advocacy of democracy and religious pluralism.

Postmaster Send address changes to: Temple Beth Am, 1039 South La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles, CA Phone: Kol HaRav I write this article with a sad heart, and also with the blessing of my friend Matt Fenster, who is dying of leukemia. I have known Matt since we attended the same shul in Riverdale, NY, during my last year of Rabbinical School. All Matt wanted from life was to be a devoted husband, an admirable father, a successful professional (all of which he is), and a man who, in his late 30 s, could play Ultimate Frisbee with the athleticism and grace of his college years on Cornell s team (which he could, until his illness). Instead, against his will, but with courage I cannot fathom, he has become a hero. His is a heroism that is quiet and unbidden, and yet will impact people beyond his ability to imagine. He was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia just over a year ago. His synagogue, where Matt served as leader in numerous capacities, immediately rallied around him, his wife Jen and their four children. There was a massive effort to exhort people to have their bone marrow tested in order to find him a match. You can find the Facebook page dedicated to the effort by searching for his name. What is most amazing to me is not how many people liked the page (a bittersweet usage of the word like if there ever was one, unique to the Facebook era), or shared encouraging comments to Matt on it. Rather, when you scroll down you see how many other similar projects became linked to the race to save Matt s life. The webpage became a hub of life-saving efforts and links, the beneficiaries of which ramify well beyond Matt himself. A match was found, and Matt underwent a transplant. The doctors were cautiously optimistic as the months ticked by, and Matt began to imagine a life after cancer. Sadly, this story will end as far-too-many cancer stories do. Matt and Jen just recently received the news from their physician that the leukemia had spread, and there were no more treatment options. Just like that, a single sentence uttered, and life begins to end. This is one of those moments where sadness evolves into tragedy, right? Empirically, this story is tragic. A young, kind, charitable, industrious, compassionate, creative father of four will die prematurely. And yet Matt will not permit that to be the tagline of his life. Just after the awful news came, he told me he was grateful for the clarity that filled his thinking now. His days are limited. Aren t all of ours, he asked? Why is he just realizing it now? Timing notwithstanding, he is committed to filling his remaining days with as much goodness and as little nonsense and sin as possible. Jen, facing an unimaginable future, echoed her husband s perspective. I have spent more time with my husband in the last year than many wives spend with theirs in a decade. How can that not be a blessing in some way? Coping mechanisms can be easily mistaken for courage. Undoubtedly, Jen and Matt are both experiencing great pain, and Matt s death will never cease to hover as a shadow in the realities of his surviving loved ones. Yet I am certain that the fortitude and determination emanating from this family are not merely salves for the deepest of wounds. They are reflections of extraordinary values, amplified within the crucible of terminal illness, worth importing into our own realities, since, of course, life itself is a terminal condition. I share with you one stunning example of what Matt is teaching and modeling as he confronts his own death. He circulated a piece of writing which has now reached hundreds if not thousands of readers. In it, he soberly and unsentimentally shares the recent news, and responds to many people s offers to help. How can they help Matt now? Here are his words, after writing about how grave a transgression Judaism considers lashon hara, ( evil tongue ) disparaging another person with your words: I am going to try to focus on this sin and avoid lashon hara for the remainder of my life. I invite each of you to join me in this effort, using my life as the commitment period -- so it won t be all too long. The smiley-face emoticon is his, a gentle bit of solace offered by Matt to the reader to let us know that, despite all of this, he is still Matt. Aware of how easy it is to tug on someone s heartstrings, and have someone commit to too great a task, Matt moves from challenger to pastor and teacher: Before committing, keep in mind that this is deceptively challenging. continued on page 5

3 Kol Ha Neshama This article is the fourth in a series of Kol Ha Neshama columns addressing the sacred mitzvah of escorting a human being from this world to the next. Please see the January, February and April Kol Ha Am for Rabbi Leider s columns devoted to the first steps that a person or a family takes when a loved one dies. During the period of Aninut, the period of time between death and burial, the family meets with our TBA clergy to plan the funeral. As well as gathering thoughts, reflections and information about the life of a loved one, we are also preparing the family to engage in the mitzvah of Kavod Ha Met, or honoring the dead. When the Jewish community gathers to honor the memory of a loved one, the focus is on the deceased. Conversation is limited to the memory of the deceased, whether in the chapel service or the graveside portion of the service. Although difficult to do, we attempt to delay greeting the family until the community has finished the mitzvah of burying the dead. The rabbis call this Hesed Shel Emet, an act of true loving kindness. The person whom we bury can never return this favor to us and so our actions reflect selfless giving. This mitzvah has also been likened to tucking someone in at night. Burying is the final tucking in and we strive to do this with love, focus and dignity that every human being deserves. The rabbi invites the family forward to begin this mitzvah. RefleCtIons Sitting on the aircraft returning to Los Angeles after having completed the Shiva period for my beloved mother, I pondered and agonized whether or not I would continue saying daily Kaddish for the remainder of the 11 month mourning period. The temple I had occasionally been going to over the last years only conducted Friday night services, so even if I wanted to, where would I go? As the flight touched down at LAX in the early afternoon, I knew instinctively that I wanted to say Kaddish that very afternoon/ evening. I quickly had to find a place to do this as the sun was beginning to set. Suddenly I remembered that there was this Temple on La Cienega Blvd. where I had been to a bar-mitzvah several years ago. I rushed down La Cienega, and arriving at Temple Beth Am was guided to the smaller Pilch Hall, where the Mincha/Maariv Service was about to begin. One is immediately struck by the intimate and comforting aura of the space and how respectfully Kaddish was said by the mourners present. I knew I would be back. As the commitment to continue saying Kaddish crystallized, it became necessary to explore other synagogues in the area I lived and worked in due to time and geographic constraints and challenges. Saying Kadish daily becomes such a sensitive focal point of each service, automatically one is aware of the Temple Beth Am MAY 2011 It is traditional to place three shovelfuls of dirt on the casket. Some also use the back of the shovel. In using the back of the shovel, the process of burying is slowed and this demonstrates the reluctance with which we do this act. We also do not pass the shovel from mourner to mourner. Burying the dead is not a mitzvah that we wish to pass on to another person, so we place the shovel back into the pile of dirt allowing each person to pick up the shovel on one s own. When the top and the sides of the casket are covered, the immediate mourners gather to recite Kaddish for the first time. Transition between Kavod Ha Met to Nihum Avelim With burial, the final act of Kavod Ha Met has been completed. Jewish tradition now instructs us to turn our attention to Nihum Avelim, comforting the mourners. At graveside we form two lines, allowing the mourners to walk through the lines and receive words of comfort: May God comfort you among all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. If you do not know these words by heart, please offer your own words of comfort to the mourners as they move through the lines formed by the community. This is the beginning of shiva, the seven days of mourning that are distinguished by specific observances in Jewish tradition. In the next Kol Ha Neshama article, we will address shiva and the subsequent mourning period following the loss of a loved one. Rabbi Susan Leider By Michael Gruszd decorum of the space in which you are saying this holy prayer. It becomes so important to find a home and shul environment where you can do this comfortably and in the most meaningful and nurturing way. The amazing plethora of different synagogues in L.A. opened before me, and as the months went by a path of serious shul hopping commenced. This path always led me back to Temple Beth Am. It is here at the daily minyan and Shabbat services where, 24/7 twice a day, I always found a comfortable space to pray and a decorum where Kaddish is said loudly, slowly, in unison with attention dignity and respect. And so too a path of return to Judaism commenced for me, as at each service at Temple Beth Am something is learned each time, whether it be a relevant text jumping out at you, our Rabbis words during the service, or their meaningful and impactful drashes. It is amazing, that stemming from the grief and sadness of my mother s death, an event of such positive enormity could emanate. For, in her death she has left me with a most powerful legacy. In saying Kadish for her, not only has it led me to find Temple Beth Am, but set me off on embarking on a rich and awesome journey, a journey back to our treasured Jewish Heritage. 3 Kol Ha am RefleCtIons

4 From our Head of School I am writing to share with you that the school completed a very successful visit from the WASC visiting committee in April. The committee spent three and half days meeting with various groups of parents, teachers, students, Education Cabinet members, and the WASC Leadership Committee. The core of the visit was observing classrooms and programs, viewing student work, and collecting evidence to substantiate the selfstudy document that the school wrote over the past year. Many parents, faculty, and supporters attended the WASC reporting session during which the visiting Committee shared their findings with our school community. The Committee shared their impression of the strengths of the school and concurred on the areas that we have written into next action/strategic plan. One of the Committee members shared that Pressman Academy is a warm and nurturing school with outstanding academics where every student s individual needs are looked after and taken into account. After the Committee delivered their findings, the school had an opportunity to share the major areas of the new action/strategic plan. The WASC visiting Committee will now submit its report to the accrediting committee, which will officially inform the school of its reaccreditation during the summer. I want to thank Angie Bass, Mike Cohen, Elyssa Elbaz, Dina Hellerstein, Cheryl Hersh, Amber Kalt, Jill Linder, Deena Messinger, Andy Polsky, and Janet Rich Weissman for all their work as our Leadership Committee for the WASC self-study. Sincerely, Rabbi Mitchel Malkus PARENT AND ME CLASSES Our Spring Parent and Me Classes have just started, and some of them are already full! We will also be offering new classes for the summer, so if you are interested please contact Betsy in the Pressman ECC office at X237 or for more information or to sign up. We encourage you to check out our classes and have fun with your child! Some choices are the always enjoyable Baby or Toddler Music; our new, entertaining Messy Art class and our Celebrate Shabbat class. We will be offering an even more diverse range of classes in the summer and fall sessions, so keep an eye out for them! Kol Ha am 4 is coming! As the school year ends here in the Camp/Youth office, we are gearing up for another summer of fun at Camp Keshet right here at Temple Beth Am/Pressman Academy! With our experienced and enthusiastic Assistant Directors Shoshie Askren and Debi Lozano and other seasoned camp staff returning, our campers are guaranteed to have a safe fun and exciting summer! Camp Keshet runs five weeks following the end of Pressman, from June 21st- July 22nd. From the youngest preschooler to the the 6-7th grade Young Leader, Camp Keshet has many exciting activities and programs planned. The Early Childhood Center s days are filled with so many activities; we guarantee a good night s sleep each night! Preschoolers have the option to stay full-day until 3pm or halfday until 1pm. The full-day option includes Hebrew Immersion twice per week, or they may nap in the afternoon. Children in the ECC and Kindergarten have weekly specialists bring the fun to them right here at Pressman. We are lucky to have Coach Deena come every week for Playball, water play twice per week, Animal Safari with a weekly visit from a variety of exotic animals, a special show every Wednesday such as Bubble Party and Mad Science, cooking, arts and crafts, gymnastics and the list goes on! Starting in Kindergarten, campers go on some exciting field trips. Kindergarteners go on safe, self-contained trips that are a great transition into big kid camp. The first through seventh graders go on two field trips per week. Some field trip highlights include Cars 2 and the El Capitan Theater (1st-7th), Hurricane Harbor Waterpark (1st-7th), LA School of Gymnastics (1st-2nd) and more! This summer we guarantee fun at new and exciting places such as ifittness Kidzone (2nd-7th), Ramah and Camp Alonim (3rd-7th), AdventurePlex (1st-2nd), Chuck E Cheese (But no pizza! GK-1st) and Magicopolis (1st-7th)! Second through seventh grade takes a bus to an off-site pool twice a week, and this summer we are excited to visit two different pools to swim! Mondays we visit the Westside JCC for their heated indoor pool, and Wednesdays we return to Stoner Park in West LA for fountains, splashing, park and fun! This ensures everyone gets to enjoy the pool, from the sunbather who wants to go up to their ankles to strongest swimmer down the waterslide. Each and every summer we continue to make our camp firstrate and this year is no exception. The introduction of a Toddler program and extended camp options through August as well as our first ever Hot Lunch program ensures that campers and parents alike are given the greatest summer experience possible. While for the long ride of Summer Vacation, we hope that you consider your first stop to be Camp Keshet! Alana Levitt Youth Director, Director of Camp Keshet

Irving Ashkenas, husband of Shirley Ashkenas David Fox, father of Rabbi Karen (Mickey Rosen) Fox Marvin Gelb, husband of Fay Gelb Ivan Netter, father of Rabbi Perry (Safi) Netter Joanne Schwartz, mother of Amy Schwartz Kol HaRav continued from page 2 Temple Beth Am MAY 2011 In fact, take one day just to notice how often you find yourself disparaging a person, whether an enemy (or even worse, a friend!), a colleague, or someone that you actually might not even know that well at all. I think you ll notice that it s remarkable how tempted we can be to fill a gap in a telephone conversation or at a meal with an unnecessary dig at some other person. I am really looking forward to living out my days in an environment free from this kind of haphazard negativity. Who is reading Matt s words and not recognizing how frequently and easily we are careless with our words? Which of us will accept the challenge to use the rest of his life to fill up a piece of our lives with this goodness? And what about after, Matt almost teasingly asks us? When he is gone and we are mourning him, what values will inform our speech then? I was in NY in early April. I saw Matt at shul and gave him a hug. I told him that I would try to honor his request, and that his life and his example would inspire and teach me for years. I told him I would ask my own community to honor him, whom they d never met but whom they d be enriched to know, by considering his challenge. And then I said goodbye. Mazal Tov!
