Letter to the Congregation “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for friends to be together.” ---Psalms 133:1 Dear Chevreh: A New Year…2016. Shehechiyanu! Another chance to try to get it right. What a year we’ve had!! “Should auld acquaintance be forgot…” (I forget the words…) As we turn the corner and start this new year, when we can feel overwhelmed by the troubles of the world, let’s all try to recall the good things that happened in 2015. I, personally, remember how sweet it was to see some of our Jewlicious Learners (Danica Lockett, Sami Holland, Sofia and Jonathan Abrams, joined by young David Piekarsky as they regaled us with Chanukah songs. I remember how fabulous the evening at the M was, in celebration of my 10 years with this holy community, and also my 75th (yipes!) birthday. I remember the services we shared together, the meals, the Torah Study, the classes, Women’s Rosh Chodesh, Chai Mitzvah, and the celebrations. On an even more personal note, I will always remember that my first greatgrandchild, Maya, was born in 2015. So, as tough as this past secular year has been, there is much for which to be grateful. We Jews are so lucky…we get two New Years ---although our Rosh HaShanah is generally not topped off with party hats and champagne. Come to think of it, Rosh HaShanah is spiritually uplifting and the secular New Year’s Eve is generally spent lifting spirits, but what they do have in common is considering how we can make ourselves better and spending time with friends and family.

I’d like to suggest that we all resolve to spend more time with friends and family. At a time when it is so easy to isolate ourselves, retreat into our self-imposed solitary confinement, it is precisely at such a time that we need community. Rabbi Beryl Cohon once said, “The sweetness of friendship issues from the response to a basic need in human nature. One needs friends, companions, to supplement the intimacy of family relationships if one’s life is to be complete.” There is a sense of comfort and even safety in knowing that we have community to see us through life’s challenges. And while it is harder to form true friendships as one gets older, it is not impossible. We know that one has to be a friend in order to have a friend. Sharing experiences is a great way to form acquaintances, and to nurture those acquaintances into true friendships, trust needs to be nurtured. Getting to know another person requires opening up to one another and be there for him or her. We don’t want to see through one another but to see one another through. Dwight Eisenhower famously said: ”Friendships have defended more borders than arms and cannon ever have.” May this New Year allow us all to get to know one another better, to grow in understanding and in friendship. May we all be blessed with those who not only know our song, but can sing it when we forget the words. L’Shalom,
Rabbi Yocheved Mintz
Cantor’s Notes A Note From the Cantor In my last two articles, I wrote about my first year as a cantorial student living in Jerusalem. My year ended early due to the violence that was taking place in Israel during that year. Instead of spending Pesach in Jerusalem, I flew home and finished my course work by correspondence. There really were not a lot of classes left for the year, and I only had one big paper to fax back to the HUC Jerusalem campus. (And let me say, that cost me a pretty penny.) Because the school decided to send my class back early, it was felt that requiring the new first year students to go to Israel, while there was still so much turmoil, was wrong. Hebrew Union College gave those students a choice to spend different year (they chose the 4th year) to spend in Jerusalem. They spent their first year in New York. But before the year started they had a Shabbaton weekend at the Cincinnati campus. I was asked to attend as a representative of the 2nd year class, to advise the new students on what they should expect to learn in their first year. One of the things I was asked to do was to chant 12 verses of Torah for the Shacharit service on Shabbat morning. This made me a little nervous. I was very new to chanting Torah, having only just begun learning the trope in prior months. 12 verses were the most I had ever chanted at the time, and I only had a few days to learn them. I began working on the portion on Wednesday and practiced on the long flight from Seattle to Cincinnati. I surprised myself (and impressed my teacher Cantor Eliahu Schliefer) by chanting almost perfectly. This gave me so much more confidence as I began to get ready for my 2nd year at HUC. For the summer, I worked at Temple B’nai Torah in Bellevue, Washington with my friend and mentor Cantor David Serkin-Poole. I spent Shavuot at B’nai Torah helping with an all night study session, and helping out with our guest Scholar in Residence, Rabbi Gunther Plaut. He edited the Chumash (Bible) of the Union of Reform Judaism. Rabbi Plaut was in his 90’s but still had a lot to teach. I feel blessed in having met, and learned, from him. I soon made my move to a studio apartment in Fort Lee New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan one half mile south of the George Washington Bridge. I lived there for the four years I studied at HUC in New York. The man who owned the apartment I rented was a congregant in the first congregation I was a student cantor at. As cantorial students we were required to work at least two years as a student cantor for work experience, but most of us worked all four years (helped to pay the bills). The congregation I worked in for my first year in NY was very, very classic Reform. They did not stand for the Amida (which is “The Standing Prayer”). They had an organ. I wore a black robe every Friday night. continued on page 5 4

A Note From the Cantor (cont.) For classes, I had more studying of Liturgy, Bible, Midrash, trope for haftarah, and began working on the melodies for Shabbat in both traditional style and Reform style. We had to do a practicum showing how we would lead a service or portion of a service in either a traditional or reform style. I was given a traditional evening service to do, starting with the Barâ€™chu and chanting through the Meâ€™ein Sheva (which is a repetition of the Amida). In a traditional service you have no music, but must chant directly from the siddur, with the exception of a very big musical piece. My coach for this was Cantor Faith Steinsneider. She also taught the traditional music for Shabbat. (Faith is the cantor who taught me to use Velcro to keep my kippah on). My practicum was in December and, yes, I was very nervous, but I got through and learned some beautiful melodies. I still love the version of Hashkiveinu I chanted. I also was required to lead a week of Shacharit (morning) services, paired with a rabbinical student. A wonderful thing about learning to be a cantor at HUC in New York, is the great many amazing Cantors and Rabbis, I did get to work with. Rabbi Norman Cohen taught one year of the Midrash, and his support and caring was a thing I will always appreciate. Oh, and I also got to sing in the choir, directed by Joyce Rosensweig, and sang at many school functions and services. So, this is a summary of year two for me. Lâ€™Shalom, Cantor Marla Goldberg
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE As we end a calendar year, and as we end the first half of Congregation P’nai Tikvah operating year, I sit at my computer and wonder about our future, not just our Congregation’s path but that of my family, friends and our Country. I ask many of the same questions to myself as I do when the High Holidays arrive; as Jews, we contemplate who we are. Where have I been? Where am I going? How can I improve my life and the lives of those who I love and who are important to me? There are many nights, sleepless nights and much stress as I try to balance time, energy and resources of managing my life between family, work and CPT. I am not alone. Your board of directors, your officers, your Cantor and your Rabbi share many of my concerns as they donate hours of volunteer work on behalf of CPT when, they, too, could be using that time and energy with their families and friends. We wonder if we are doing enough for our Congregation. We wonder how we can engage more of our members in our events and services, be it joining a committee, task force, running for the board, or attending Shabbat services, Chanukah, Purim and Passover functions, Brunch with Brilliants or taking advantage of the many educational courses for both our children and ourselves. We wonder what steps we need to take to strengthen our Shul, both as to the growth and stability of our membership as well as being financially solvent. Over the past months, a strategic plan was developed and approved by the board (big thanks to Jackie Ackerman, chair and her committee). Now, comes the hard part- implementation of the strategic plan and for that WE NEED YOU! We need your help- We have a fundraiser this January, the roasting of our past president, Sam Lieberman. We need our members to help sell ads, or sell tickets, or for our members to buy tickets to attend the roasting event which are very reasonably priced. We will need volunteers to help set up the day of the event. Coming soon ( I know you think I am rushing the year, 2016 already BUT) Purim and Passover. Under the direction of Annie Wolff, please it is not too early to start placing your name in the hat to help her with Passover. Meera Kamegai will need participants in attending our Shul retreat in Boulder City coming in April. All of these events will need marketing. Mark your calendar for a semi-annual membership meeting on Sunday, most likely around noon on February 28th (football Sunday will be long gone!). We have an agenda which will require major decisions as to where we are going as a Congregation. We will need as many members possible to attend this meeting. Start thinking, if you would like to be a board member for the coming year and let me know.

Presidentâ€™s Message (cont.) We have so much going for us. For a small Shul, we have an impressive resume. I realize that time is precious and that funds to contribute to the Shul can be very much stretched at any time, but with each event that you attend, we grow stronger in our relationships with each other, for each new family or individual that you introduced to our Shul, we grow in strength, for each time that you honor your pledges from the heart, our financial stability increases. The bottom line- our Congregation is as strong as our Membership. If you want to know how you can be part of this dynamic Congregation, please contact me. With your help and continued commitment to CPT, the skyâ€™s a limit. Wishing all a happy holiday as we celebrate New Years.
Barbara Holland President of the Board

“ We Are P’nai Tikvah” The Membership/Outreach Committee is embarking on an effort to let us get to know one another better. Each month they will be asking questions of a member and sharing their responses in the newsletter. This month they interviewed Evelyn and Ken Clark
1. What brought you to Congregation P'nai Tikvah? We moved to Las Vegas to be close to our son David. He has been a long time member of the congregation and always spoke glowingly of the shul and Rabbi Mintz. CPT gives us the opportunity to attend services and observe the holidays as a family. 2. What keeps you involved in P'nai Tikvah? The services at CPT are so uplifting. They can best be described as "chicken soup for the Jewish soul." After our long move, we have found a new family in the warm and welcoming congregation at CPT. There are always volunteer opportunities and a full calendar of activities.

Jewlicious Learning We come back from our winter break eager to see one another. This semester our youngest readers will be putting their AlephBet skills to use in their first text. Our Solelim (pathfinders) will be blazing trails in their reading and printing skills; and our pre-B’nei Mitzvah students will be completing their proficiency in the Shabbat morning liturgy, polishing their trope skills, and learning to read from the Torah. Delving into the Weekly Sidrah in age-appropriate levels, working on individualized mitzvah projects, and connecting to history through learning about Jewish heroes, the curriculum continues to challenge and engage our youngsters. This month, as we go from Tevet to Shvat, we will also celebrate Tu B’Shvat with a fun project for the entire group, planting items we can hope to harvest in time for Pesach in a few months. Happy New Year; happy winter. If it’s Tu B’Shvat we know that spring is just around the corner.
