Sunday - April 29
Men’s Club Siyyum featuring Rabbi Dorff
Topic: “For the Love of God and People: A Philosophy of Jewish Law”
Our synagogue is filled with young families who fill our Early Childhood Center and Religious School.
We have always tried to cater programming to these families and make them part of our Beth El family.
 However, an issue that synagogues have dealt with for years is how to keep families involved whose children
have gone away to college and left to start their own lives. A few months ago, I had a discussion with a
few of our Past Presidents about their thoughts on this matter. One of them followed up with an email as to
why “empty nesters” continue to belong to Beth El.
 Their children were educated and had their bar/bas mitzvah at Beth El
 Their children or they themselves were married at Beth or a grandchild was named here.
 Our klay kodesh have been mentors and confidants. It has been an environment where we can be
 consoled and where we can reflect on our lives.
 We have so many pleasurable memories that we want to maintain the synagogue for others.
 We want to return the generosity of the congregants who were there with open arms to welcome them
 40+ years ago.
 I am sure there are other reasons that many of you have, but this Past President’s main reason he continues to support
 Beth El is that Beth El is OUR HOME and how can we not be a part of it.
 I am proud that our synagogue has developed a myriad of exciting new programming for empty nesters, such as our newly
 rejuvenated adult choir and we are committed to be a congregation that supports the needs of all our congregants.
 See you in shul,
Allen

service will be followed by a sit-down luncheon at which
time Rabbi Dorff will continue the conversation on issues
raised during the sermon. Again, the conversation will
be geared to adults and older teens, but we will have
programming for younger children elsewhere in the building
during Rabbi Dorff’s session. In keeping with our
theme of thanking our past leadership as a run up to the
Annual Meeting, we will be honoring the Past Presidents
of Sisterhood and Men’s Club at our Shabbat morning
service.
Finally, on Sunday morning, Rabbi Dorff will be speaking
at a Men’s Club Breakfast. He will be discussing his
book, “For the Love of God and People: A Philosophy of
Jewish Law”. A group of about 35 congregants have
been studying this book, chapter by chapter with me on
Sunday mornings at previous Men’s Club breakfasts and
this session will be a fitting conclusion to that three
month process. Still, you don’t have to have read the
book, attended previous sessions, or be a member of
Men’s Club to come to this program.
 It is my hope that you will take advantage of the many
opportunities for study with Rabbi Dorff during his visit.
Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend. We
are a congregation of learners, dedicated to pushing forward
in our Jewish intellectual growth and this Scholar in
Residence Weekend is a chance for all of us to reaffirm
our commitment to ourselves, our synagogue, our Gd
and our People.

 It has been several years since Beth El
has had a Scholar In Residence Weekend
and I am very excited about our upcoming
opportunity to learn with the brilliant rabbi,
Elliot Dorff. Rabbi Dorff is among the leading
scholars of the Conservative Movement
and is the chair of the Committee of Law and Standards
which helps shape our Movement’s policies and practices.
The theme of the weekend is “The 21st Century Synagogue:
A Center of Jewish Learning and Personal Growth” and it will
culminate at our Beth El Annual Meeting on Sunday, April 29,
2012. We are bringing in Rabbi Dorff to both educate our
congregants as well as the larger community of which we are
a part. We want as many people as possible to benefit from
what this outstanding scholar has to offer. Let me tell you
what we have in store:
 On Thursday night April 26, 2012, at 7:00PM Rabbi Dorff
will be leading a panel discussion entitled, “Death and Dying:
Ethical Issues in Clinical Care.” This event is for health care
professionals as well as the community and congregation at
large. It is being co-sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania
Perelman School of Medicine and we will be offering
continuing medical education credit through them as well
continuing education credits for social workers through JFCS
and for nurses through Virtua Hospital. Ten thousand brochure
invitations are being sent by Penn to health care providers
throughout the Delaware Valley. That night, three
challenging cases will be presented to Rabbi Dorff, Dr. David
Casarett of Penn’s Center for Bioethics, as well Dr. Ed Viner,
professor of medicine at Cooper Hospital. Each will respond
from their own unique perspective and I am sure all who attend
will gain new insight into an issue that, sooner or later,
effects every family. The program is free and as mentioned,
open to the public. Registration is only necessary for those
who seek professional credit.
 Friday morning Beth El will host area rabbis, cantors and
educators for a special session with Rabbi Dorff for Jewish
education professionals.

 Friday night we will have a congregational service followed
by a dinner at which Rabbi Dorff will speak on the
topic, “Courageous Synagogue Leadership: Moral Imperatives,
Tradition and Change” and at this dinner we will be
honoring Beth El’s Past Presidents for all they have done
and continue to do, for our congregation. This evening program
is geared to adults and older teens. You will find more
details elsewhere in this issue.
 The next day, at our Shabbat morning service, Rabbi
Dorff will speak at sermon time and his topic will be,
“Judaism and National Policy: Ethical Considerations in an
Election Year”. With hot-button issues like responsibility to
the poor, same sex marriage and the Iranian threat dominating
political conversations today it will be most interesting to
hear what a scholar of Jewish law has to say. Our Shabbat

Consecration Class have funded this tradition. This year the
following families provided the boxes:

Celebrating Chag Hasiddur with Dinner and
Kabbalat Shabbat Service, March 2
Our third Graders will receive their first siddur from thanks to
Beth El’s Men’s Club and Sisterhood. The evening will commence
with a beautifully catered dinner, at 5:45PM, organized
by a wonderful committee, chaired by Suzanne Levy and Jen
Swarbrick. Approximately 7:00PM, the children will be helping
Hazzan Pomerantz-Boro lead the Kabbalat Shabbat Service,
via a special cantata written by Yaffa Fuchs and directed by our
teachers, Marsha Axler and Tamar Barkan Shamir.
In December our families participated in the Siddur Cover
Family B’Yachad Program. Our children and parents had an
opportunity to study about the siddur and make a unique siddur
cover to protect their new siddur. The results are beautiful and
will be on display the two weeks prior to Consecration in the
school corridor. A yasher koach to all our children and parents
who have done such a wonderful job with the project.
Once again we will celebrate the occasion by giving our children
a beautiful Tzedakah Box, sponsored by several families
in honor of their children.
Susan Asbell, initiator of this project, continues to find annual
sponsors for this generous gift. It is Susan’s hope that the
tzedakah box will serve as an early reminder to our children,
that giving is as worthwhile as receiving and that it is a value to
which they should aspire.

Abilities Awareness Shabbat - March 3
Voorhees Township's Third Annual Abilities Awareness Week
will take place March 3 - 10 and once again Beth El will participate.
Abilities Awareness Week is designated by the Township,
Voorhees schools and other civic and religious groups to
celebrate the achievements of the disabled in our community
and to create an understanding and acceptance of children and
adults with special needs. This is indeed the philosophy of
Congregation Beth El, where differences are celebrated.
Thanks to Linda Harowitz, a member of SPEAK (Special needs
Parents Educators And Kids), who brought this to our attention
last year. Beth El will commemorate that week with an inclusive
Abilities Awareness Shabbat featuring our very own Project
Lev and faculty.
Our Hebrew High School will include a special program on
special needs Tuesday evening, March 6

About Hanukah
Madelyn Altman
Hanukah means rededication. It also is the
festival of lights. The bright lights of the candles
remind them of the Jews’ fight to worship
God in their own way.
The story of Hanukah begins more than two
thousand years ago in the land of Judea. At
the time Antiochus of Syria wanted the Jewish
people to pray to the Greek gods as he did.
He decided to punish the Jewish people. Antiochus
said they would be put to death unless
they gave up their Jewish religion.
Judah and his followers were called the Maccabees.
The Hebrew word Maccabee means
“hammer”, in English. Hebrew is the language
of the Jews. The army destroyed many statues
of the Greek gods in the Temple. They
carefully made the Temple a house of prayer
to one God again. When the Temple was
ready the Jews celebrated their victory and
the rededication of the Temple for eight days.

News from the Early Childhood Center
(winner of the Solomon Schechter Gold Award)
Learning Outside the Classroom
 When you say school, most of us automatically think…classroom. But the truth is that children learn in all sorts of settings and
in many ways. For example, when they are in the playground, children are learning about balance, heights, safety, socializing,
spatial relationships, etc.
Field trips serve as another avenue of learning. Over the past few months, many trips outside the building have been enjoyed by
the students.
 The 3 year olds went to the Ritz Theatre to see a presentation of “Pinocchio”. Not only did they enjoy the story, but they got
to experience a bus ride, how to behave in a theater and that not every story is interpreted the same way by different groups.
 In February, the Kindergarten and Kindergarten Enrichment classes went to the Academy of Natural Sciences as part of their
unit on Dinosaurs. They had a lesson about dinosaurs and went on the Big Dig.
 Irvine Auditorium was the site of the 4 year olds class trip to see “Henry and Mudge” as presented by Theaterworks Players.
And, in March the Kindergarten will go to the Walnut Street Theater to see “Miss Nelson”. The children are now beginning to try
acting in the classroom and are making their own costumes to fit the part. Literature, acting, make believe, representation, etc.,
are all part of the learning taking place.
All of these experiences are wonderful opportunities. However, don’t get the wrong idea: learning takes place in the classroom
too, so we will continue to have classes at the Early Childhood Center for now!

A Jewish woman named Hedwig Kiesler, working with the
American composer George Antheil, received a patent in 1942
for a “secret communication system”. The inventors had developed
“spread-spectrum radio”. This technology enabled enhanced
communication between aircraft and ships, led to jamproof
targeting of torpedoes and paved the way
for the development of GPS and cell phones.
This was a remarkable achievement for anyone,
but Hedwig Kiesler was not just anyone. She was
a film star known as the most beautiful woman in
the world. Her stage name: Hedy Lamarr.
How Hedy Lamarr came to be the co-inventor of
such important technology is the subject of Richard Rhodes’
Hedy’s Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy
Lamarr, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World. Rhodes
describes young Hedwig’s privileged life in Vienna, where she
married a fabulously wealthy Austrian arms dealer. Hedwig
carefully observed dinner-table conversations about weapons
technology, and she brought this knowledge with her to America.
Antheil was a composer with considerable experience in the
technology of player pianos. Their collaboration brought together
two creative, highly intelligent people.
Rhodes’ book is not a Hollywood tell-all (though there are plenty
of details about Hedy’s marriages and movie career, including
her first film, the scandalous Ecstasy). Instead, Rhodes stays
focused on the groundbreaking work she did with Antheil. It is a
fitting tribute to the glamorous film star who was more interested
in inventing than in looking beautiful and who famously said “any
girl can look glamorous: all you have to do is stand still and look
stupid.”
Looking for a great, true story? Hedy’s Folly is on the Library’s
“New Non-Fiction” shelf.
**********
On our “New Fiction” shelves:
The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomons is
the story of a young Viennese girl whose life in
1938’s turned upside-down by the approaching war.
She ends up a parlor maid in England. This is a
love story, richly evocative of life in an English
country house. Readers will find themselves
thoroughly engaged by this story.
In Susan Sherman’s The Little Russian, we also
read about a young woman whose comfortable life changes
radically. Berta Alshonsky finds herself working as a grocer’s
daughter in a small Jewish town in early 20th C. Russia, far from
the opulence she enjoyed in Moscow as a child.
Berta falls in love and marries a wheat merchant,
with whom she once again lives a comfortable life
only to learn that her husband is a member of the
Jewish Worker’s League and has been smuggling
arms to shtetls so they can defend themselves
against pogroms. When he gets into trouble he
must leave the country, but Berta makes the disastrous
choice to stay behind, keeping the children
with her. This family saga is outstanding historical fiction,
highly praised by critics who call it “mesmerizing” and
“extraordinary.”
**********
The Library has a growing collection of LARGE
PRINT books. If you have vision problems, you
can still read and enjoy books from your own Beth
El Library! Titles include fiction and non-fiction: on
the fiction side, we have the just-published Next to
Love by Ellen Feldman, The Trials of Zion by Alan
Dershowitz, and books by Naomi Ragen and Susan
Isaacs. More large-print titles will be coming.
**********
Todah rabah to our “Jewish Book Month” donors:
Barbara and Marvin Backal, Freda Kleinburd and
Richard Kalmin, Elaine and Barry Galman, Donna
and Richard Bell, Harriet Schulman, Sharon and
Steven Usdin and Phyllis Hecsh.

Contributions for Jewish Book Month help our library
g--r--o--w. Of course, you may contribute to
the Library Fund at any time; book dedications are
just $25.00. Surprise a friend, honor a loved one,
celebrate a milestone with a book dedication – a meaningful gift
of lasting value.
**********
The Library’s Short Story Discussion Group will meet on
Thursday, March 22 and Thursday April 26, 1:30 – 3:00 PM in
the Conference Room. Refreshments will be served. Please
mark these dates and plan to join us for engaging discussions.

SUBSTITUTE GREETERS:
SHORT HOURS ● NO PAY
 LOTS OF SATISFACTION
TRAINING PROVIDED
Each Shabbat morning a congregant stands at the Shabbat
entrance to our building to welcome people as they arrive.
These arrivals may be old friends, they may be attending a
simcha or they may be "synagogue shopping."
The Greeter's responsibility is to welcome people
cordially, wish them a "Shabbat Shalom" (if appropriate),
direct them to the sanctuary, the coat room, etc., or offer
other assistance as needed. She/he will be stationed at
the entrance from 9:15am until 10:35am. At that time the
greeter may join the rest of the congregation (if they wish).
A Beth El Board member is usually assigned for a specific
Shabbat, but we often need substitutes. For further information
or to volunteer, you may email or phone Mort Kanovsky
at Kanovsky@juno.com or 856.424.9372.
Spring clean your drawers of your
unused, “collectable” Kippot.
All Kippas are welcome regardless
of a memorable name or date.
Help Beth El fill the Kippot Box and find
more drawer space at the same time.
Thank you.
