Rabbi’s Message: Chevreh: Here we are in the month of Iyyar and it is a liminal time of the year. As we ascend from Pesach, our Z’man Cheiruteinu/ season of our redemption upwards towards Shavuot, our Z’man Matan Torah/season of the gift of the Torah, we find ourselves working consciously on spiritual self-betterment day by day. We do that through the counting of the Omer as a way of preparing us for virtually being ready to accept the Torah, year after year. Now, whether one does this purposefully, with kavvanah/focus and intent or whether one just kind of lets it happen, Shavuot will be coming (6 Sivan). This year we will celebrate it together outdoors on the Green at Eagle Hills on Sunday, May 24, at 10 a.m. It is a doubly joyous service, as our own Sabrina Linker, daughter of Scott Linker and Ariel Cole, will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah. The Linker family is sponsoring the Kiddush luncheon (catered by the Veggie House) immediately following the service. Please call the office, 702-4364900, to RSVP, as Eagle Hills is a gate-guarded community, as we will need to let the guard know all our guests. But, as inevitably as day follows day and we hopefully go forward, let’s pause to contemplate where we’ve been. On Pesach, every year we retell the story of our Exodus. Whether we recite it in the traditional Maggid of the Haggadah, or, as we did this year, do a parody of the story ala J.K. Rowling’s style with our presentation of “Mosey Potter: The Boy Who Lived,” we annually remind ourselves of our story of liberation. Why do we do this, year after year? continued on page 3

continued from page 3

We do it because we need to understand our story, how we got to where we are. We need to remind ourselves that we came to Mitzrayim initially for food and were welcomed and taken in, but eventually, over a long period of time, we became enmeshed in the society and, then, enslaved. We need to remember that it didn’t happen overnight, and that it took a strong leader and a series of awful plagues, for us and our captors to realize that we needed to be free. And it is essential to remember that it took immense courage and insight to speak truth to power, but we did; and we emerged from slavery, received the Torah, and went from a group of tribes to a nation. The point is that this annual retelling is also a constant reminder that we need to be aware of our past, learn from it, and apply those lessons to the present---for the sake of the future. When we see problems in our society, we need to understand that they are the results of what has come before, but they can be changed by our vigilance, awareness, and actions. And, it is incumbent upon us to speak truth to power. O.K., all good and well. Nice thoughts, but what does this have to do with us, now, here, as Jews living in the greater Las Vegas area? Everything! Whether we came here from another locale or grew up here, we need to acknowledge that this is now our home, and, therefore, our history and heritage require of us to do what we can to make our home live up to its potential. As Jews, we are mandated “l’takein et ha-olam” to bring wholeness to the world…and we know that that begins at home. That’s why we are supportive of Jewish Federation, the Jewish Family Service Agency, Nevadans for the Common Good, and a number of other institutions that are making a difference. That is why we encourage one another to vote, to contact our representatives on matters of importance, to stand up and speak out. continued on page 4 3


continued from page 3

So, as we prepare our spiritual selves for the “trek up the mountain,” let us also apply that awareness to our physical, economic, and social environment here at home. Let us never take our heritage for granted. Let us understand the responsibilities that come along with the receiving of the Torah, and let us go forth, as a congregation to make a positive impact in our own lives and in the life of the community we call home. May Shavuot be truly a “peak” experience this year, and, as we mark the tenth anniversary of your entrusting me to be the spiritual leader of this holy community, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and to wish us all “mazal” as we go from strength to strength. Bi-v’rachot u-b’hodot…with blessings and gratitude,

Rabbi Yocheved Mintz

Cantor’s Notes

A Note From the Cantor There is a tradition that when you arrive in Jerusalem for the first time, you get off your bus (or however you arrived at the city) and walk up to the city. I did this the first time I visited Jerusalem. It was in 1985, right after I graduated high school, as part of a 6 week trip to Israel. The first several days were spent in Jerusalem, including the first Shabbat. During that Shabbat, our group walked through the Old City to the Wall. As we approached, the lights shining upon the Wall made it look as if it were gold to me. Skip ahead many years to my Year In Israel for my cantorial studies. My class spent many Saturday nights observing Havdalah in a park behind the King David Hotel. From there, while looking for the 3 stars that signified the end of Shabbat, we could see the walls of the Old City. As night descended, the lights of the outer walls also seemed to shine with a golden glow. Both of these experiences made it clear to me how Naomi Shemer could write the song, Yerushalayim Shel Zahav. Naomi Shemer, z”l, is often considered the ‘”first lady of Israel Song and Poetry”. A sabra, Shemer was born at Kibbutz K’vutzat Kinneret, on the shores of the Galilee, in 1930. Her parents, Meir Sappir and Rivka Shostaliski who immigrated from Vilna in the early 1920’s, were founding members of the kibbutz. From an early age music was a large part of Naomi’s life. She led the singing at the kibbutz and wrote several children’s songs, some of which became a part of an album by Yaffa Yarkoni, “Songs from Kinneret” (1958). continued on page 6

continued from page 5

When she served in the army, in the Nahal, she was part of the cultural department where she wrote many musical reviews. After her time there she married actor, Gideon Shemer and had one daughter, Halleli. Gideon and Naomi became renowned performing a reworking of Five-Five, a reworking of a review she wrote during her time in the Nahal. Among the troupe, the Green Onion Troupe, that performed these works were members of the Nahal group Naomi worked with in the army, including, Chaim Topal (later well known as the movie “Tevye”). Throughout her career Naomi wrote many songs, and put music to many poems from the works of Israeli poet Racheil, and even from the poems of Walt Whitman. She translated many songs into Hebrew from other languages, including “Let It Be” by the Beatles. But Yerushalayim Shel Zahav is probably considered her best known composition. It became an unofficial second National Anthem for Israel in 1967 after the Six Day War, when Jerusalem and Israel were ‘reunited’. The song was written for the 1967 Israeli Music Festival. At first, Shemer had difficulty writing the song, but as she remembered various Talmudic legends about the city, her lyrics began to form. Her melody flowed from various Hassidic melodies and Yiddish songs she remembered from her childhood. It is also said that some inspiration came from a Basque melody, "Pello Joxepe" (Joseph The Fool) that Naomi had heard performed in 1962. Yerushalayim Shel Zahav has inspired so many people since it was first performed in that music festival in 1967. When I did first walk into the city with that college tour group my friend Alan (who I spent my childhood in youth choir and sharing youth group song leading duties with) sang Yerushalayim Shel Zahav. It was a very powerful moment for us. Naomi died in 2004 after a long battle with cancer. Upon her death, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said, “Using marvelous lyrics and melodies, she succeeded in connecting us to our roots, to our origins, to the beginnings of Zionism. Today, as we bid farewell to Naomi Shemer, we bow our heads with sorrow and are grateful for the wonderful gift Naomi gave us.” L’Shalom, Cantor Marla Goldberg 6


President’s Message My favorite holiday is Passover. I would not be surprised if this was the favorite holiday for most Jews. Why? It brings back so many family memories. You knew that you were still a “kid” because your table was in the kitchen and not in the formal dining room with the rest of the family. Your time to shine was when you left the kitchen to chant The Four Questions! Being the youngest (at least for some period of time) was a badge of honor! At my Aunt Norma’s home, all of the aunts and uncles and cousins would celebrate the holiday eating too much food cooked with chicken fat! One of the few memories I have of my parents is preparing the house for Passover. Spring Cleaning! Going to the attic and bringing down the Passover dishes, one set for the meat and one set for the milk. My father hiding bread crumbs for me to find…. Those were some wonderful memories of all of us being together for the Passover Seder. Thanks to so many CPT members who year after year work to make possible our CPT Family Seder. Annie Goodrich and Stephanie Paykel started planning our Seder months in advance, bringing with them David Aris, Joey Goodrich, Ann Mandell, Sami Holland, Rosie Rhoades, Nancy and Cantor Marla Goldberg, Carolyn Stewart, Laurie Lytel, Michael, Cheyenne, MayLee, Mason, and Meyer DeLee, Douglas, Gail and Hannah Hansen, Gayle Jacobs, Cheryl Glenn, Marijane Frederickson, Nancey and Janet Eason, Harriet Bernstein, Roz Tessler, Sam Lieberman, Meera and Minao Kamegai, Joyce Greenberg and Linda Kaufman. Hats off to Annie and Stephanie for bringing it all together! Hats off to all of the members who bought food and drinks, cooked meals, set up and tore down, who participated in the J.K. Rowling-esque play adapted by a script by Steve Mintz, one of Rabbi Mintz’s talented sons. continued on page 8

I have to tell you all that there was one woman, a first time attendee, asked me who was the caterer. When I told her this was OUR CPT FAMILY members she was astonished! Again thanks to all who made new memories for us and for me. There is no time for rest for the Board as we prepare for the event of the year, the L’Chaim Gala honoring Rabbi Mintz’s first 10 years as our spiritual leader. The Gala Committee of Jane Kusel, Lynn Pisetzner, Sam Lieberman, Kristen Jaeger, Stephanie Paykel, Marty Loeb and David Clark have been working for months planning this fundraiser. We thank them for all of the behind-the-scene work! The Gala will be held at the M Resort on Saturday evening, May 30th, 2015. We will start off our celebration with Havdalah, champagne, hors d’oeuvres followed by a gourmet dinner. Time to polish up those dancing shoes as the Mintz Band O’ Brothers will keep you toe-tapping through the night! If you have not purchased your tickets yet, please do so a.s.a.p. Contact the office (702-436-4900) We are fast approaching the end of our fiscal year, June 30th. Save the date, June 7th for our annual meeting. If you would like to serve on the board for one or two years please contact me at 702-493-5450 or send me an email at bholland@hlrealty.com. If this was not enough, we want to remind you of the Celebration of Israel’s 67th Independence Day on Sunday, May 10th at the Sands Expo Hall “A” and the Venetian Theater. Free admission with advance online registration at www.celebrateisraelfestival.com. Looking forward to seeing you all again when we celebrate our Shabbat services together.

SIGN UP TO SPONSOR AND/OR CATER AN ONEG Our first and third Friday evening services create space for people to socialize, to talk over the ideas Rabbi Mintz has shared in her sermon, and to meet one another. Sponsoring and/or catering the Oneg Shabbat is a lovely way to share joy of Shabbat with the community. Any reason is a good reason to sponsor and/or cater an Oneg! Perhaps you are marking a special event (a birth, baby-naming, engagement, wedding, anniversary, graduation, bar/bat mitzvah) or you want to remember a loved one in a special way, or celebrate a return to health, a new job…or any reason. We welcome you to sign up to provide a simple buffet to be enjoyed by all. Feeding others is a nourishing experience in so many ways! Foods to consider: Easily served finger foods such as: cheese/crackers, hummus/pita, nuts, raw veggies, cookies, wasabi peas, pretzels, chips, spreads/crackers, dried fruits, fresh fruit (cut up). Judging quantities: Remember, the Oneg is just a nosh, not a meal! We tend to average about 70-100 people at services. Set up: We have access to the space at Kraft-Sussman starting at about 1/2 hour before services. Two 6-foot tables will be set up for the Oneg.
