Kirk Douglas, the legendary actor who portrayed legions of tough guys in the course of his 87 films and embraced his Jewish heritage later in life, died Feb. 5 at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 103. Thrice nominated for an Academy Award and a recipient of an Oscar for lifetime achievement and a Presidential Medal of Freedom, Douglas also was the author of 11 books, ranging from personal memoirs and a Holocaust-themed novel for young readers to a collection of poetry dedicated to his wife. Douglas was born Issur Danielovitch in 1916 in the upstate New York town of Amsterdam, the son of an illiterate Russian-Jewish immigrant who supported his six daughters and one son as a rag picker and junk man. A chance to escape came shortly after his bar mitzvah, when the Sons of Israel Synagogue offered to underwrite his rabbinical

studies. Douglas firmly declined, declaring that he would become an actor. He held fast to that ambition while attending Saint Lawrence University on a wrestling scholarship and during World War II service in the U.S. Navy. His first movie role came in 1946, but it was during the 1950s and ’60s that he ranked consistently as one of Hollywood’s top male stars for his single-minded focus on his craft, while also squeezing in Broadway and television appearances. In the 1950s, he starred in 23 movies, earning best actor Oscar nominations for “The Bad and the Beautiful” and “Lust for Life.” He opened the decade of the 1960s with “Spartacus,” perhaps his most enduring movie, in which he played the leader of a slave rebellion in ancient Rome. Douglas also distinguished himself for insisting that writer Dalton Trumbo, who had been blacklisted as a communist for a decade

but continued to write under a pseudonym, be credited onscreen despite dire warnings that such a provocation would end his own Hollywood career. Douglas was honored for that stance in 2011 by the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. With increasing fame and fortune, Douglas showed little interest in Jewish practice, though there were exceptions. “I always fasted on Yom Kippur,” he told a reporter. “I still worked on the movie set, but I fasted. And let me tell you, it’s not easy making love to Lana Turner on an empty stomach.” In his later years, Douglas would come to embrace his Jewishness, a shift he dates to a near-fatal collision in 1991 between his helicopter and a stunt plane in which two younger men died. The crash compressed his spine by three inches. While lying in a hospital bed with excruciating back pain, he started pondering the meaning of his life. “I came to believe that I was spared because I had never come to grips with what it means to be Jewish,” he said. Douglas embarked on an intensive regime of Torah study with a number of young rabbis and celebrated a second bar mitzvah at age 83, telling the Hollywood luminaries crammed into the 200-seat chapel at Sinai Temple for the occasion: “Today, I am a man.” Along with his second wife, Anne Buydens (who announced her conversion to Judaism, long after they were wed, in 2014), Douglas gave over $100 million to charitable causes in the United States and Israel. The couple established nearly 400 playgrounds in poorer sections of Los Angeles and Jerusalem, an Alzheimer’s hospital unit, and a theater facing the Western Wall featuring films on the history of Judaism and Jerusalem. Along with his wife and son Michael, Douglas is survived by sons Peter and Joel Douglas, seven grandchildren and a sister, Ida Sahr of Schenectady, N.Y.

Jewish planner brings spiritual teachings to everyday life

By Jacqueline Hyman Staff Writer

I

n graduate school, Amanda Herring learned about the Jewish calendar and its connection to nature. She searched for a planner to guide her through the Jewish year, but couldn’t find anything. So, she decided to create one. “I’ve always loved planners. Paper planners are just the way that I keep track of my life, even as everything has moved online. I think that having a physical planner just grounds me,” says Herring, a Washington resident. “There was a couple large format monthly calendars … but they’re all based in the Gregorian calendar and then just also listed the Hebrew dates, and they didn’t have any of this wisdom about the seasons or the times of year or why our holidays fall when they do.” She turned to Mo Golden, a classmate in George Washington University’s Experiential Education and Jewish Cultural Arts program, to help her design the planner. In the

6

summer of 2018, they brainstormed. “How would it be different [than a regular planner]? How would it be laid out?” Herring says they asked themselves. “How would the experience of using this planner teach people about Jewish time cycles — not just listing the dates, not just giving information, but really the layout, the design, the format of it, change how we’re thinking about time?” Golden has a background in product design and expressive arts therapy. She says she always wanted a planner that would save her time rather than overcomplicate her life. “I’ve always used a paper planner, but I’d look for something that was as simple as possible. That really influenced how I conceptualized our format and structure,” says Golden, who grew up in Frederick but now lives in Olympia, Wash. “We had a lot of information that we wanted to put in it and we were trying to create a new structure — which was a design challenge for me because I didn’t want people to have to learn this whole new thing [all at once].”

The monthly layout of the planner is offset and shaded to show both Hebrew and Gregorian dates, since the Hebrew days start and end at sundown. It also starts and ends with each Hebrew month — for example, a monthly layout shows the entire month of Tevet — so the Gregorian months get split up. And because the Hebrew calendar is lunar, it shows the moon cycle. “We wanted the month breakdowns to be on the Hebrew calendar so we could talk about the themes of the month,” says Herring, “get people really into the main themes by journaling a little bit — relating it to their lives, relating to their goals for that month.” The weekly layout, instead of being boxed or rectangular like in many planners, looks like a wheel. The inside pie slices show Gregorian dates, but the circle is lined with the offset Hebrew dates. “It’s in a wheel format because time isn’t linear. With Shabbat ending every week, we have this chance to reflect and to pause and to look back on your week, every single week,” Herring explains.

A weekly layout in the Jewish planner. It shows a quote from the week’s Torah portion and offsets dates between Hebrew and Gregorian calendars. Photo courtesy of GoldHerring Every month in the planner starts with teachings relating to that month’s themes and significance. For example, the Kislev page talks about finding light in the darkness — this is the Hebrew month that includes Chanukah. Each month ends with journal questions to help the user reflect. Each weekly layout includes a quote from that week’s Torah portion. Herring says this can help Jewish educators who want to relate their classes to the Torah portion — but it can also be a spiritual lesson or reminder for anyone using the planner. The planner also includes a seasonal planting guide to help users know what they should plant and eat at what times of year. Though Herring writes the teachings and Golden creates the illustrations, they collaborate on both. They send each other their drafts and take each other’s ideas and feedback into consideration. “It’s been a real joy to work together in that way,� Golden says. “One of the great things about having a partnership is you can do different things and you have twice as much energy.� Herring says this is a passion project for the two of them — they both have other

jobs and projects. “It really felt like this thing that our community was missing,� Golden says, “and I realized how important Jewish time and cycles are to living Jewishly and understanding some of the core wisdom behind our tradition and that a lot of people are not connected to that.� The first planner covered Hebrew year 5780 (September 2019 – September 2020). A Kickstarter is collecting money for a planner for 5781. Herring says they sold out of the 750 planner-run for 5780. “It’s still kind of shocking. It’s wild. Like, I wanted it and Mo wanted it. And we were like, ‘Well, let’s see if anybody else does,’� Herring says. “I’m super grateful that people like it.� Herring and Golden have made some changes, based on customer feedback: extra note pages and a pocket in the back. “I’m just so excited and I want to hear how [people are] using it,� Herring says. “And, is it meeting their needs? Is it adding something to their life?� WJW jhyman@midatlanticmedia.com Twitter: @jacqbh58

Student-to-student talks aim to increase understanding of Jews By Jacqueline Hyman Staff Writer

T

hree teens — Aviva Bechky, Sammy Strent and Shuli Frenkel — are giving a presentation at Martin Luther King Jr Middle School in Germantown. They tell the class about their bar and bat mitzvah projects, and how they celebrate Shabbat. They talk about the laws of kashrut. One student’s jaw drops when Sammy says that if you keep kosher, you can’t eat cheeseburgers. The three have been trained to give talks like this and field questions about Jewish life, usually in public school classrooms. They bring props to give their audiences visual (even edible) aids in learning about Judaism. To demonstrate Shabbat, they pass around a loaf of challah for students to tear off and eat. They show the candles Jews light on Friday nights and let the students smell spices used for Havdalah at the end of Shabbat. From Shabbat the discussion turns to antiSemitism and the Holocaust.“What percentage of people in the U.S. do you think are Jewish?” Aviva asks the class. Several hands go up. “Seventy percent?” “Twenty-three?” they guess. Aviva keeps telling them to guess lower. “Ten percent?” She tells them that 2 percent of Americans are Jewish, but that they face the majority of religious-based crimes. These are difficult topics. But mostly they talk about their own Jewish lives. Sammy, 17, a Conservative Jew and a student at Walt Whitman High School, talks about his family’s Shabbat dinners. Aviva, 16, who attends Montgomery Blair High School, says she goes with family or friends to her Reform synagogue on Friday nights. Shuli, 16, is Modern Orthodox and a student at Berman Hebrew Academy. She tells the class that she doesn’t use technology during Shabbat. The program is sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council. Sara Winkelman, the agency’s director of education, programs and services, says she tries to have the Jewish spectrum represented — Orthodox, Reform and Conservative teens, as well as boys and girls. The point of the exercise isn’t just to teach the middle school students. “It’s fun to watch them learn from each other,” says Winkelman. “For many teens it’s the first time they have to explain why they’re Jewish. They’ve just grown up that way, most kids don’t have to do that until 8

So I feel like that’s a good growing tool … They’re learning their personal narrative.” Winkelman says about 60 teenagers from 31 schools in Washington, Maryland and Virginia volunteer for the program, usually high school juniors and seniors. She said the presenters often say they get as much out of the activity as the audience does. “The Jewish kids [feel] appreciated, honored as well as educating people on things they don’t know about,” Winkelman says. After the Feb. 6 class, the three presenters sit down to talk about their experiences. They’ve each done several presentations, to groups of teachers, middle school students and high schoolers. Aviva says she wanted to be a presenter because she wanted to educate people in an era of rising antiSemitism. “I think a lot of that comes from ignorance, because people don’t know Jews and what Jews are like. Also, part of it was because I come from like a slightly different background than a lot of Jews,” says Aviva, who is multiracial. “I wanted to share that not all Jews are the same.” The three say that most of the people they speak to

know little about Judaism. “It’s important when we go to places that have smaller Jewish populations because it allows us to connect more with people that really just don’t know much about it,” Sammy says. “And that’s sort of the whole point of the program.” They see themselves as role models for the middle schoolers. “I really like the student-to-student interaction aspect of it, where after every segment, we say, ‘Does anyone have any questions? Anything you guys want to know?’” says Shuli. They’d like to think that by doing this, they’re making a positive impact on the people who listen. “Maybe you’re not going to change the minds of people who are really committed to hate,” Aviva says, “but I hope that what this program does is get people to pause a second before they say something … to be able to recognize anti-Semitism and to stand up against it, and to, when they see someone who’s Jewish to think, ‘Oh, that person is like us, too.’” WJW jhyman@midatlanticmedia.com Twitter: @jacqbh58

ontgomery County Public Schools announced on Feb. 6 new guidelines for anti-bias training that would diminish hate-related harassment and vandalism in schools. At his monthly press conference, Superintendent Jack Smith said, “As we think about bias and actions and activities that can be so hurtful and so destructive, how do we make sure that we’re responding the way that builds a stronger, more positive community?” The school system has been working with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington. Associate Director Guila Franklin Siegel said the plan has three parts to address hate and bias: responsive procedures to hateful incidents; restorative action to help heal the community after an incident; and preventive measures, including anti-bias education for teachers and students. “It’s so critical that principals be given the resources that they need in order to respond to these incidents,” Franklin Siegel said in an interview. “The new protocols provide a clear chain of command, in terms of who they report to and inform when an incident happens.” Some tangible changes include being able to submit the MCPS bullying, harassment and intimidation form online, said Deputy Superintendent Monifa McKnight at the press conference, within the next couple months. Franklin Siegel said the JCRC is a resource the school community and principals can use to help when hateful incidents occur, along with organizations like Identity and other members of the Black and Brown Coalition for Educational Equity and Excellence. The education piece of this initiative is important to building empathy and cultural competence, said Franklin Siegel. “We want to create a situation where children are really listening to each other, where there is a sharing of mutual narrative, greater mutual understanding and respect,” she added. Though MCPS is looking at anti-bias on a larger scale, Franklin Siegel said JCRC is focused on anti-Semitism, and is concerned about an increase in incidents of swastikas being used to vandalize schools. “From the county’s perspective, it is [more general], as well it should be,” she said. “We are an incredibly diverse school district and we have seen xenophobia among the students, racism, homophobia, all kinds of hatred that pit students against one another, that makes students feel unsafe or marginalized. Kids can’t learn in that environment.” McKnight classified hate-bias incidents as based on race, ethnicity, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, immigration, gender and gender identity. “We’ve taken various steps to ensure that all schools and offices have a clear approach to responding, restoring and preventing these incidents at a school district level,” McKnight said. These guidelines aren’t going to completely eradicate bias and hate, Franklin Siegel acknowledged, but they are a start in changing attitudes. JCRC will continue to work with MCPS “to flesh out the details regarding implementation,” she said. She added that it’s a matter of changing school culture in the long term. “The problem didn’t appear overnight, it’s not going to disappear overnight, but these are positive first steps,” Franklin Siegel said.

Vindman’s Northern Virginia synagogue is accepting letters of support

A

lexander Vindman’s synagogue in Springfield, Va., is accepting letters of support in his behalf. Vindman, the Jewish staffer who was among the first to raise flags about President Donald Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to investigate a political rival, was removed from his position as an expert on U.S. policy in Ukraine at the National Security Council on Feb. 7. “The Vindman family is a valued member of Congregation Adat Reyim’s community of friends. We are proud to support Lt. Col. Alex Vindman during this challenging time,” said Rebecca Geller, co-president of Congregation Adat Reyim. In addition, for those seeking ways to show support, the Vindman family has requested donations be made to the synagogue via www.adatreyim.org in Alexander Vindman’s honor.

Trump also recalled Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to the European Union. Both Vindman and Sondland testified against Trump in the U.S. House of Representatives, providing damaging testimony that led to Trump’s impeachment. Their removal comes just days after Trump was acquitted by the Republican-led U.S. Senate in an impeachment trial. Also on Feb. 7, Vindman’s twin brother, Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman, was asked to leave his job as a White House lawyer. Both Vindmans, Jews who immigrated with their father from Ukraine in 1979, were reassigned to the Army. Vindman said during his testimony that his father feared that his speaking out would bring retaliation. WJW —JTA News and Features

Michael Feinstein to step down as head of Bender JCC By Samantha Cooper Staff Writer

M

ichael Feinstein, CEO of the Bender Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington, announced he will be stepping down from his position at the end of the year. Feinstein has been working at the Rockville-based center for 15 years, 12 of them as CEO. During his tenure he raised more than $17 million to renovate the facility. He also expanded the JCC’s camp and after-school programs for special needs kids and the family engagement program. “We’ve completed our renovation and just finished our new strategic plan,” Feinstein said. “I feel it is a good place to pause and have new leadership come to take that plan forward.” His own plans are unclear, he said. Feinstein said inclusion was a high priority during his time leading the Bender JCC. “There’s a big focus and priority on having the JCC be a hub for [the Jewish] community,” he said. “We’re really focused on creating a more inclusive community.” He said the JCC is working to partner with another organization so the center can accommodate autistic children. One of Feinstein’s final projects will be the launch of the Wandering J van, which will travel around Montgomery County to bring Jewish programming to people. Bender JCC President Arthur Pollett said he’s enjoyed working with Feinstein. “His breadth of knowledge and understanding and tireless energy is tremendous. He’s incredibly patient and thoughtful. He’s always eminently prepared. I think he’s a mensch.” The center has established a committee to search for Feinstein’s successor. Pollett said the board is looking for a person who will “continue with the next stage of the strategic plan and take the community forward.” Added Feinstein, “I think one of the most important qualities to have is the openness and desire to partner and collaborate with other organizations. That really drives the JCC.” WJW 10

YOU SHOULD KNOW ...

Nick May

because I don’t stutter when I sing. My stutter has different ways of manifesting itself.There have been periods where certain sounds were harder than others. There were certain periods where my stutter sounded different, where instead of saying, like I stutter now, “Um um um um um” a lot, or like blocking, I would sound more like “W-w-w-w-w-what?” And actually, I have a couple tricks to deal with it, like you can’t see it right now; however, underneath the table I’m tapping my foot to help my body get on a rhythm to get the word out on a downbeat. And sometimes, if I can feel if a block is coming, I’m able to switch out the words to a word that’s easier to get out. So you teach at Gesher, and you go touring and song leading in different places around the country. Yes, and I also teach Hebrew at Temple Rodef Shalom, and I do Sunday school at [Temple B’nai Shalom] in Fairfax Station. It’s a lot, but it’s all in the same professional space. I’m still doing Jewish education, I’m still doing Jewish music.

N

ick May has been expressing himself through music since age 12, when Hurricane Katrina hit his hometown of New Orleans. Now 26, he’s a music teacher at Gesher Jewish Day School in Fairfax and a Jewish song leader who tours the country. When he performs, he tells audiences about his stutter and how music has helped him through it.

What got you into the field you’re in? My mom is a cantorial soloist in New Orleans, and my dad plays music as well. So music was a big part of my childhood. I didn’t fall in love with Jewish music until I started going to summer camp … That’s where I started hearing songs that connected with me more, songs that

sounded like songs I would hear on the radio. Artists like Dan Nichols, Rick Recht, the classics, Debbie Friedman, those artists really helped me fall in love with what Jewish music could be. So you consciously decided to learn guitar as a way to express yourself about what was going on in your life. Obviously a lot was happening at that time. Twelve years old is a huge part of anyone’s life. I had just started seventh grade at the New Orleans Jewish Day School and we had only packed enough clothes and things for four days [when the hurricane hit]. And we ended up staying in Houston for a month. We stayed at my godparents’ house. I did go to school for the month that I was in Houston. We didn’t know when we were coming home.

Is there a reason you’ve stuck with specifically Jewish music instead of branching out to other types? So in terms of writing my own music, I’ve always been more inspired as a songwriter when I read prayers in a prayer book, being able to come up with my own English interpretation of it. To me, that’s really powerful because I’m able to explain the prayer in a new way that speaks to me and may speak to someone else as well. I do have a couple of songs that aren’t necessarily Jewish. One I wrote when I was in high school about my journey as a person whose stutters. How has your stutter affected you? I started stuttering when I was a kid.

It’s about getting the group of people closer together through singing together. Whenever I do perform a concert, it’s mainly for … older audiences, and that’s just my music. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of children’s concerts.

Report that Les Wexner ignored harassment at Victoria’s Secret renews misgivings among recipients of his prestigious Jewish fellowship By Josefin Dolsten

N

EW YORK — Like many recipients of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship, Avigayil Halpern depends on the stipend to cover her living expenses. Halpern, 23, uses her scholarship money to pay for food and rent while she pursues rabbinic ordination through Yeshivat Hadar, an egalitarian Jewish educational institute in New York City. Shortly after Halpern found out she had received the prestigious fellowship last year, its founder, Leslie Wexner, landed in the news because of his close ties to Jeffrey Epstein, a financier and convicted sex offender who later committed suicide in jail. Then, last week, the New York Times reported about a culture of sexual harassment and bullying of female employees and models at Victoria’s Secret, the lingerie brand owned by Wexner’s L Brands. The article alleges misconduct at the hands of an executive, Ed Razek, and says employees who reported the misconduct to Wexner said they did not see any action taken as a result. Employees also alleged that Wexner himself made offensive comments about women, according to the article. The new article has renewed Halpern’s discomfort about benefiting from Wexner’s philanthropy. “It hurts to read these things,” Halpern said. “I’m a woman in my early 20s. I’ve experienced sexual harassment. I know what that feels like, and to think about the ways in which I might be contributing to upholding the reputation of someone who’s been contributing to that behavior is really horrifying.” Halpern said the breadth of Wexner’s giving deepens her concerns. “It creates a class of Jewish leaders who are in some ways beholden to Les Wexner, and I worry about what the impact of that is going to be,” she said. The foundation did not respond to requests for comment. In August 2019, it released a letter from Wexner himself addressing his relationship with Epstein. “To be clear, I never would have imagined that a person I employed more than a decade ago could have caused so much pain,” Wexner wrote. “I condemn his abhorrent behavior in the strongest possible terms.” Wexner’s impact goes far beyond any one program. His foundation has also given millions of dollars to Jewish causes in the United States and Israel. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has a center named after him. And his influence is particularly large in his home city of Columbus, Ohio, where a Jewish nursing home and a center at the Hillel at Ohio State University are among the many institutions bearing his name. But it is the fellowship programs that are perhaps inducing the most soul-searching among beneficiaries of Wexner’s largesse. The prestigious Wexner Graduate Fellowship/ Davidson Scholars Program, founded in 1988, has more than 570 graduates working in synagogues, schools, nonprofits and other Jewish institutions.

Time for a public reckoning

Photo by Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images for Fragrance Foundation past fellowship recipient, addressed the New York Times report in a lengthy public Facebook post. “Many of us have felt since the Epstein stories started breaking that we had to engage in some reckoning with our adjacency to this scandal and all that it represented, as beneficiaries of Les Wexner’s wealth, our bios and reputations marked with his name,” he wrote. He added that he had cautioned against reckoning publicly in the past but now felt compelled to do so. Kurtzer said that he does not view money as “tainted” but said he regretted “participating in the limited set of activities that involved lionizing Les himself,” such as the foundation’s 30th-anniversary party that was held in an airplane hangar. He also called for a greater separation between the Wexners and the fellowship. “The most legitimate thing that the Wexners can do right now for the benefit of their historically valuable nonprofit work is to endow the Foundation either with money now or with a set of binding long-term pledges; to step aside from its board, or flood it with outsiders who have equal votes; to give over all autonomous leadership of its direction to its capable professional leaders; and to cement the Chinese wall that will make clear that that charitable work is not defined by, and should not continue to reverberate from, whatever is revealed from any ongoing investigations,” he wrote. Similar debates have played out recently following scandals around other Jewish megadonors. Some institutions are no longer accepting donations from the Sackler family, the Jewish family whose pharmaceutical company is at the center of the opioid crisis, and allegations last year that Michael Steinhardt, the billionaire who helped establish Birthright, had sexually harassed women, raised questions about his role in funding organizations in the Jewish community. One person who responded to Kurtzer’s post said she was sorry he had missed a robust conversation on the topic at this year’s convening of Wexner fellowship recipients. “I’m sorry too,” Kurtzer wrote. “But I don’t really think this belongs entirely in closed door space anymore.”

Dangers of speaking publicly

Many recipients of Wexner’s giving have not yet joined Kurtzer in speaking publicly. Most institutions contacted for this article did not respond. And many past and present fellows contacted did not respond or said they did not want to speak on the record. One current fellow agreed to speak anonymously, saying he worried speaking publicly could damage his career prospects. He said that the latest report “confirms a lot of the nervousness and displeasure” that he had felt when he read the


nation-world reports about Wexner’s ties to Epstein last year. “If the culture of Victoria’s Secret is filled with misogyny, is that something that we want to replicate in the American Jewish community?” he asked. “What does it say that something that this foundation has looked to as source of leadership that who they look to as a leader has these stories coming out about him?” The fellow said that prior to the stories coming out, he had been “very excited” about the program. “I think this has cast a large shadow over the fellowship, not just for myself but also for others,” he said. “Now when I talk about being a Wexner fellow, the name Wexner is also associated with these stories that are coming out in the New York Times. Now the name Wexner is associated in some ways with the name Epstein.” Those who are engaging publicly with the latest report said it provides a new chance for reflection. “To me it’s an opportunity to take a step back and look at the web of corruption that we’re all a part of and say ‘OK, me, my particular self, what are the one or two ways that I’m in a position to push the needle on whatever kind of issue away from abuse and towards justice, even just a little bit?’” said Rabbi Sarah Mulhern, a Wexner fellowship graduate and faculty member at the Hartman Institute. Mulhern sees part of her answer to that as “committing to pushing the community to have this conversation — and specifically to commit to pushing them to have it in a Jewishly rooted way.” WJW

BRIEFS Adelsons to spend $100 million to re-elect Trump Sheldon and Miriam Adelson plan to spend $100 million on electing Republicans and re-electing President Donald Trump. The Guardian on Monday quoted three Republican fundraisers it did not name as saying that the couple, known for their generosity to Republicans, pro-Israel causes and medical research, was ready to spend nearly the same amount, $124 million, as they did in the 2016 cycle. One of the Guardian’s sources said it could reach $200 million. Sheldon Adelson is a casino magnate and Miriam Adelson is a physician and medical researcher. The Guardian said most of the money would be funneled through political action committees and “dark money” groups that are not required to reveal donors. The Adelsons did not favor Trump in the 2016 cycle until May of that year, something he has teased the couple about now that they are close. A number of Republican Jews were wary of Trump at first because of a confrontation between the candidate and the Republican Jewish Coalition in December 2015, and because he originally would not commit to moving the embassy to Jerusalem. Trump awarded Miriam Adelson the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018.

Biden rejects pressure to boycott AIPAC conference

Joe Biden rejected pressure from a coalition of left-wing groups to have presidential candidates boycott the Israel lobby AIPAC’s policy conference. An activist with IfNotNow, the antioccupation group that is leading the initiative,confronted the former vice president in New Hampshire and cast her question in the context of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The activist noted that Biden led the effort to get Congress not to reject the agreement while the American Israel Public Affairs Committee endeavored to scuttle it. “No, because I’m there to convince,” Biden said in a video of the encounter posted Sunday by IfNotNow on Twitter, “convince them to change their position.” Among the Democratic presidential candidates, only Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has committed to skipping the policy conference, which takes place at the beginning of March. Of those who have been asked by IfNotNow, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said he would not object to attending and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said he would have to check his schedule. The conference takes place in the days leading up to Super Tuesday, the sweep of 15 or so primaries, but in the past candidates busy on the campaign trail have made time to address the conference via video link.

Crimes against humanity in Syria T

he tragedy in Syria has reached another milestone, as the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad advances on the rebel-held territory of Idlib in the northwest. Most of the rebel fighters belong to the extremist Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, a former al-Qaeda affiliate. But the 3 million civilians living in Idlib will bear the brunt of the assault by the Assad regime and its Russian ally. Many of those residents are refugees from other parts of the country who arrived during nine years of war, which took 500,000 lives and displaced more than 16 million people. To escape the rain of death from Russian airstrikes, nearly 600,000 people — almost all of them women and children — are trying to reach the relative safety of the Turkish border. They sleep on the sides of roads and burn clothing to keep warm. Meanwhile, Turkey, their hoped-for destination, is already home to more than 3.5 million Syrian refugees. The numbers are mindboggling, and the actual devastation to humanity is inexcusable. The Assad regime, Russia, Iran and Sunni terror groups like Islamic State are responsible for this travesty, and will hopefully be brought to justice one day. Still, a nagging question remains: What was the U.S. role in this decade-long tragedy? Certainly, America’s motives were positive, although they were often short-lived: Oust Assad, defeat Isis, ally with the Kurds, oppose the use of chemical weapons. Yet it all went wrong. Assad is entrenched. His regime used chemical weapons against the Syrian people. Russia has become the regional superpower. Iranian influence has spread from Tehran to Beirut. America’s influence is diminished. The Kurds have been abandoned.

Russian Presidint Vladimir Putin, left, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meet in 2018. www.kremlin.ru/Creative Commons Although President Trump is correct that the U.S. is tired of “endless wars,” we have also been unable to develop a sustained, focused and fully committed approach to the problem in Syria. In the words of Robert Moore in The Hill, “a coherent policy never emerged, in large part because the American public was at odds with where Congress and even the Obama administration were on Syria.” The Syrian refugee crisis has reverberated throughout

the Middle East and led to a xenophobic backlash in Europe as it deals with an influx of refugees. What can the United States do, aside from wringing our hands? For one thing, we can welcome more Syrian refugees here. We can increase humanitarian aid — including mental health support — for the millions of people who fled Syria. And we can take the lead in crafting a solution with our allies to resolve this veritable humanitarian catastrophe. WJW

and son were quickly asked to leave. Ellenby’s call to action: regular sensory-friendly opportunities for people with disabilities — a reasonable request for accommodation. The Jewish community has heeded that call, and those of other parents and individuals who grapple with similar challenges. Jewish organizations work with movie theaters to set up sensory-friendly showings; Jewish summer camps schedule newly accommodating activities; synagogues offer services with soft music, dim lighting and comfortable seating. They’re all moves in the right direction. In addition, in this year’s JDAIM guide, there is a list of related suggestions that synagogues can adopt: 1. Announce page numbers often. Describe the prayer book and commentary by color and size, in addition to name. Use a manual scoreboard to show page numbers. 2. Invite people with disabilities and mental health conditions ahead of time to participate in a service.

Honor them by being called to the Torah and help them practice the blessings. Ask them and their family members to offer a d’var Torah, carry the Torah and otherwise participate in the services. 3. If the bimah is not accessible, move the reading desk to the main level of the sanctuary. 4. During this month, focus some conversations about inclusion in Torah study and sermons, and raise the issue with your board and in committee meetings. 5. Use social media to promote inclusion. Post about your events, and quote text that resonates with Jewish values about inclusion. 6. Provide prayer books and Torah commentaries in accessible format (i.e., Braille, large-print, audio). These are relatively easy fixes. We urge each member of the community and each institution to raise awareness of and increase inclusion of people with disabilities, as we are all created in God’s image. WJW

Dignity for all F

ebruary is Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM), a time that allows us to explore the complexity of the Jewish belief that every person was created in God’s image. Although each of us is clearly different from one another, we all resemble the Creator, and no one is greater or lesser, more or less deserving of life and dignity. That concept is easier to accept in theory than it is in practice. And family struggles to deal with disabilities in an unforgiving world are well-known. For example, in “Autism Uncensored: Pulling Back the Curtain,” Whitney Ellenby, a lawyer, writer and mother based in Montgomery County, details her struggles and triumphs with her son’s autism. She tells of attending a Broadway performance where, despite her son sitting in the back row in a section reserved for people with disabilities, his “yelps and vigorous bouncing in his seat” disturbed people around him. “A nearby woman in a wheelchair was the first to cast a dark glare,” she wrote, and mother

I’m done passing as a matrilineal Jew By Rabbi Emily Cohen

“Y

our Hebrew name?” the head of the yeshivah asked, pencil and paper poised to take it down for my aliyah, the honor of reciting Torah blessings. It was my third week at his school, a place where I’d reluctantly agreed to study for a semester in a city where fully welcoming options for Jews like me were almost nonexistent. “Erela,” I replied. My American tongue wrapped awkwardly around the “resh” — the Hebrew r that’s notoriously difficult for English speakers to manage. My parents hadn’t thought about that when choosing the name, nor the fact that “Erela” is an obscure variation on “Lion of God” that most people would hear as “Ariella” and I’d have to correct. But I digress. “Bat?” he continued, referring to the Hebrew naming tradition of including one’s parents in the name. “Ephraim v’Yehudit,” I answered.

the blessings. I felt simultaneous joy at taking part in the ritual and a deep sadness. For the first time in my life, I was deliberately playing a Jewish equivalent of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Nobody questioned my right to be a Jewish student at the yeshivah, or even thought to ask me about my parentage. I “looked the part,” had the “right” name and was in my second to last year of rabbinical school. But I knew that I was patrilineal — a Jew born to a Jewish father and a non-Jewish mother — and I knew that if the head of the yeshivah knew this, my experience as a student would be quite different and I would not have been invited to chant the blessings at all. A quick history: In the time of the Torah, Jewish descent passed patrilineally from father to child. In the time of the Talmud, Jewish status began to pass down exclusively matrilineally — through the mother — or through conversion. In 1968, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association became the first American Jewish

We Are via Getty Images My dad got his Hebrew name, Ephraim, the old-fashioned way, as a Jewish child born to two Jewish parents. My mom got hers from me a few years ago. I was starting rabbinical school and for the first time in my life was in an environment where people used their full Hebrew names with regularity. My mom happens to have an English name, Judith, that has a Hebrew equivalent: Yehudit. Ironically, it means “female Jew.” I say ironically because my mom is a Quaker. You wouldn’t necessarily guess that looking at her. Her name is Judy Cohen and she teaches at a Jewish day school. Plus, her oldest daughter — Emily Cohen with the dark curly hair, i.e., me — is now a rabbi. That day, the head of the yeshivah called me to the Torah by my Hebrew name. I stepped forward to chant

movement to declare that either parent was sufficient to confer Jewish status on a child. The Reform movement followed suit in 1984. Since then, generations of children have grown up in Jewish communities and with Jewish identities, only to be told by some that they aren’t Jewish enough to count. There are many valid responses to this painful, confusing reality. Mine is to say that I am a Jew, that I have no memories that aren’t Jewish, that I have a Jewish parent, that there’s a legal argument to be made within egalitarian Jewish spaces for descent through any parent, and that there’s that whole, y’know, being a rabbi thing. I first started to “pass” as matrilineal before I even knew what that meant. As a white kid with dark hair and a Jewish last name, nobody questioned my belonging

until they started talking to me. I’ve never had the terrible experience of my friends and colleagues who are Jews of color of being questioned the moment I walk in the door. My experience is usually quite the opposite: being welcomed, being included and being assumed to be a certain sort of Jew. I hear a lot of things not meant for my patrilineal ears: People who tell me how worried they are about their sons who don’t “value” finding a Jewish partner; people who tell me that they don’t understand how children who grow up in a home with Christmas celebrations could possibly understand that they’re Jewish; people who make jokes and sweeping generalizations about “the goyim.” Each time I experience this, it hurts. It hurts because it reminds me of my liminal Jewish status in the eyes of many fellow Jews. It hurts because it erases my mom and all she did to give my sisters and me Jewish identities. It hurts because it’s a statement of how far we have to go as a people to truly honor one another. When I concluded my semester at the yeshivah, it was with a rule for myself: I never again wanted to be in a position of closeting my parentage. In the same way that I’m proudly “out” as queer, both when I’m dating a cis man and when I’m dating anybody else on and around the gender spectrum, I wanted to be boldly “out” as patrilineal. This doesn’t mean that I shout it to the rafters every time I attend a friend’s wedding or b mitzvah in a space that doesn’t recognize my Jewishness. But it means that when Jew-to-Jew microaggressions come up, I don’t shy away from mentioning my mother’s faith, my Christmas tree- and Easter basket-infused childhood, or the ways in which I am the rabbi who I am exactly because of the home I grew up in, not in spite of it. Passing is painful, and when I allow myself to pass, it perpetuates the idea that “real Jews” are something I and so many other Jews are not. In the same way that I want to lift up the validity of Jews who are questioned because of their race, gender, conversion process, politics or any other number of factors, I want to lift up the validity of Jews like me. And that means speaking up and speaking out not only when it’s convenient but when it’s deeply vulnerable. It means reminding people that the diversity in and around the Jewish tent is not always visible, but it’s always there, it’s always listening and it’s always sacred.

letters to the editor WJW should have waited for Romney Regarding “An unsatisfying process,” (Editorials, Feb. 6): Too bad you went to press before Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) inspiring speech explaining his vote to remove president Trump. Romney felt bound by the mandated senatorial pre-trial oath “to god” “to do impartial justice.” Jews should all have applauded Romney. Since the Israelites accepted the third commandment, “you shall not swear falsely by the name of the Lord your God,” we Jews have taken solemn oaths seriously. Perhaps you would have applauded Romney’s stance and compared it with Mitch McConnell’s promise and the other Republican senators’ agreement to march in lock step with the White House in the impeachment trial. Absent the press deadline, you might not have parroted Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-Tenn.) conclusion that Trump’s actions were “a long way to from treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors,” the Constitutional standard for impeachment. Rather, it had a long history in the English common and parliamentary impeachment law dating back to the 14th century. As the drafters of our impeachment clause knew well, the formula refers to a trustee or public officer’s breach of the legal duty to use his powers solely in the interest of the beneficiaries or the public, and not for his own benefit. It’s ludicrous to claim that every policy disagreement involves such misconduct, as criminal law professor Alan Dershowitz did. Far from being “a long way” from Trump’s abuse of power specified in the House impeachment articles, Trump sought to engage in precisely the kind of outrage the proponents of our Constitutional impeachment provision had in mind, namely a president conspiring with a foreign power to interfere in an election. How will voters be able to separate lies from truth, when, as Trump has promised, he tries again and then succeeds with China, Russia or whomever to plant falsehoods here. We only learned of Trump’s attempt this time because of the courage of a whistleblower whom Republicans sought to out and punish. Romney understood; why didn’t WJW? RABBI GEORGE. B.

Israel bashers are not all alike. But they all bash Israel. By Asaf Romirowsky

I

n his address to the Zionist Congress in London on Aug. 2, 1900, Theodor Herzl said: “Zionism demands a publicly recognized and legally secured home in Palestine for the Jewish people. This platform, which we drew up three years ago, is unchangeable. It must have responded to a very deep necessity, a very old longing of our people, otherwise its effects would be inexplicable. There is no need of my enumerating these effects at the present day. Everyone knows them, everyone sees and hears them. Four years ago in speaking of a Jewish nation one ran the risk of being thought ridiculous. Today he makes himself ridiculous who denies the existence of a Jewish nation. A glance at this hall, where our people is represented by delegates from all over the world, suffices to prove this.”

There are countless unresolved questions regarding the territories and settlements, all of which should be decided by Israelis and Palestinians. The Zionist enterprise has evolved over the past 120 years but has always been predicated on the reestablishment of Jewish statehood in the ancestral homeland. The collective memory of Jewish statelessness and powerlessness was vivid during the early decades of the Jewish state. Left, right or center, the founding fathers of Zionism were all motivated by the imperative of Jewish statehood as both a manifestation of the Jewish people’s right to national self-determination and a means of lessening Jewish vulnerability and increasing the likelihood of Jewish survival. This foundational axiom was also widely understood by American Jews, particularly in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Statehood was seen as the necessary extension of the shared sense of Jewish nationhood that had existed for millennia, a sense of unity and even destiny that went beyond culture or even religion. Today, however, among an increasing number of American Jews, the idea of a Jewish state is no longer a building block but rather a wedge issue. The very idea of nations and nation states may be suspect in the 21st century, but no other national movement evokes so uniquely visceral a reaction as does Zionism. No other term for a national movement has been infamously defined by the United Nations as “a form of racism and racial discrimination” — an epithet assigned to it by a bigoted coalition led by the Soviet Union. And no other definition has caused so much anxiety among a movement’s putative supporters and rendered them so unwilling to stand up for their cause. Too many American Jewish supporters of Israel live in fear of being declared racist by enemies of Zionism, or by those

who purport to be so “enlightened” that they can see through the façade of Israeli democracy. Those individuals take it upon themselves to distinguish between the “good” and the “bad” parts of Israel and avail themselves freely of the all-purpose evil of the “occupation.” Today’s left and progressive circles use the 1967 “Green Line” as a red herring in their representation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the American Jewish community. Journalist Peter Beinart, one of the driving forces behind this trend, claims “the American Jewish establishment and the Zionist establishment [render themselves] morally corrupt by defending the indefensible, for defending an occupation that holds millions of people occupied.” Beinart, J Street head Jeremy Ben-Ami and others believe a “Zionist BDS” directed only against Israeli West Bank neighborhoods is fair game. Cognitive dissonance — the discomfort caused by carrying conflicting beliefs or values simultaneously — applies to many aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It is an especially apt description of the emotions produced by the difference between historical fact and the Palestinians’ view of their national narrative. The notion of occupation has become the defining lens through which everything about the Palestinians’ self-conception is explained and justified. This is exactly the myopic view taken by Beinart and his colleagues. The only difference is that unlike overtly anti-Zionist Israel-bashers like Norman Finkelstein, Ilan Pappe and others, Beinart claims to be a lover of Zion — just one who is having a difficult time grappling with the “harsh” Israeli reality. Individuals like Beinart and Ben-Ami now feel empowered to attempt to hijack the World Zionist Congress and steer funding away from anything related to the settlements. The legislative authority of the 120-year-old World Zionist Organization helps determine the fate of $1 billion in spending on Jewish causes. Beinart contends that “Israeli settlements in the West Bank are institutionalized expressions of bigotry. The American and Israeli politicians who legitimize them are the moral equivalent of those politicians who legitimized Jim Crow” because “Jewish settlements are Jewish-only settlements.” J Street has announced a new campaign to pressure 2020 Democratic candidates into opposing Israel’s presence in the West Bank, with the goal of getting the party to include a formal opposition to the “occupation” in its official platform. There are countless unresolved questions regarding the territories and settlements, all of which should be decided by Israelis and Palestinians. American Jews imposing their conceptions, based on a palpable lack of understanding and sympathy for their Israeli cousins, is patronizing and foolish. Hijacking Zionism’s most important institution to demand that Israelis follow the dictates of Americans is far from what Herzl and his successors intended.

DC Klezmer Workshop brings out the warmth in local amateur musicians Story by Lisa Traiger Photos by Lloyd Wolf

O

n a cold Tuesday evening in January, a living room in Silver Spring heated up as 11 hobbyist musicians played through half a dozen klezmer tunes. There were bouncy, toe-tapping freilachs, a Romanian hora, and a serba whose score advised “as fast as can be played.” Along with the music, came plenty of camaraderie.

February 13, 2020 | Washington Jewish Week

For the past two years, a group of serious amateurs has met weekly to play klezmer — Eastern European Jewish dance and wedding music. They are amateurs in the best sense of the word — pursuing an activity out of love and for pure enjoyment. Howard Ungar, a Bethesda software engineer who plays trumpet in his off hours, co-founded the group he calls DC Klezmer Workshop. He was drawn to this distinctive Jewish folk form two decades ago when he began attending klezmer music festivals and the famed annual New York

KlezKamp — a weeklong total immersion in everything klezmer, from music to dance, to Yiddish language lessons and more. At home in Bethesda, Ungar hooked up with Mrs. Toretsky’s Nightmare, a local band organized by pediatric oncologist and clarinetist Jeffrey Toretsky. But the occasional synagogue gigs weren’t enough to feed Ungar’s hunger for klezmer. “My bandmates kept advancing in their careers, so we didn’t have enough time for klezmer,” he said. “I wanted to play more.”

And he had a growing collection of klezmer sheet music. After he electronically transcribed and cataloged these sometimes obscure compositions — which now number more than 250 scores — he wanted to find a place to play them and the musicians to join him. That’s the origin story of the DC Klezmer Workshop. The group is open to all musicians interested in playing klezmer — no auditions are required. With little pressure to perform, or even practice between sessions, the evening feels like a warmhearted, occasionally rowdy, jam session for Jewish music lovers. Some music historians trace klezmer back to itinerant 15th-century Jewish musicians, who traveled from town to town entertaining at weddings and other celebrations. Others date the folk form to more recent traveling musicians a century ago in the shtetls of Eastern Europe, particularly Bessarabia, most of which is in present day Moldova. The poetic translation of the word klezmer derives from combining the two Hebrew words ke’li — vessels — and zemer — song melody. Klezmer: vessels of song. Mel Leifer of Germantown is one two flutists who attends Tuesday workshops regularly. “With no auditions, anyone is welcome, from beginners to Juilliard-trained … it’s a very egalitarian community, we’re open to suggestions,” he said. Retired from the Department of Energy, Leifer discovered the workshop about a year ago at a local Jewish music festival. “It was a good incentive to get back to playing music,” he said, claiming he plays flute at the beginner level. “It’s one of the few things I do that involves people of a variety of ages.” Retired music teacher Marilyn Hammerman is Juilliard trained and taught piano for more than 60 years. She simply loves Tuesday night klezmer. Yet it never occurred to the North Bethesda resident to try the folksy music as a budding musician. But two years ago, she joined the workshop as a keyboard player. In her youth, as she immersed herself in the classical music canon, Hammerman’s mother looked down on klezmer musicians. “While my mother thought of the klezmorim as not cultured people — they were street performers who played for money. It’s so different now. Forget about street musicians. This brings Judaism back to the 21st century.” By day, Michael Mendelson is an IT consultant, but most Tuesdays he, too, connects with his Jewish roots at the workshop. “I love to play with other people,” he said, noting that he was involved in klezmer, bluegrass and jazz bands in other cities before relocating to the District. “Like other folk genres, it’s easy to connect on a musical level with klezmer,” he said. “Of course, there’s always a desire to perfect. We return to some songs every week.” For Melissa Wilets, the DC Klezmer Workshop is one way she digs into her Jewish roots. “It is definitely nice to have a cultural connection to the music,” the Bethesda graphic designer said. “I didn’t grow up in a highly observant atmosphere … so for me, music, this is a natural way to connect.” Wilets began piano studies at 5, played the flute seriously and, just recently, picked up the accordion because, she said, the group had enough melody players. Her 11-year-old son plays trumpet and joins the workshop occasionally, particularly for its Sunday afternoon master classes and dance sessions. A retired folk music specialist for the Smithsonian, Judy Barlas hosts the weekly klezmer jam sessions at her home. Barlas, who plays the tsimbl, a hammered-dulcimer-style instrument popular in klezmer bands, founded the workshop with Unger in 2017. “You shouldn’t have to go to the camps or to New York to learn to play this music,” she said. “We as musicians should be bringing it to our community. For me, it’s a very personal connection to the [Yiddish] language, to my parents who were native Yiddish speakers, to Yiddishkeit.” About an hour in, after winding through a half-dozen bouncing Eastern European melodies, the 11 players took a slivovitz break. Shot glasses of the plum brandy were passed around, then the players returned to their instruments, which that night included two accordions, a pair of violins, a mandolin and a piano keyboard. “Let’s try that hora faster this time,” Ungar urged, the slivovitz reddening his cheeks slightly. “This one is going to require more work, but it’s fun.” Mendelson, the bass player, admitted to rarely practicing at home. He’s adept enough to sight read and wing it. “I grew up hearing this music,” he said. “Even though at the time I didn’t think much about it at all.” These days, Mendelson tries not to miss the weekly sessions, because “Klezmer speaks to my soul.” WJW Lisa Traiger is Washington Jewish Week’s arts correspondent. washingtonjewishweek.com 19

Review

They fall in love. It doesn’t end well. By Aaron Leibel Special to WJW “The Convert” by Stefan Hertsman. New York: Pantheon Books: 2020. 304 pages. $26.95.

T

his wonderful book is based on a few ancient documents, which, combined with the author’s scholarly perseverance, give it its outline; his imagination fills in the holes. “The Convert,” thus, is a historical novel, apparently based, at least loosely, on historical fact. The documents, which the author used as the basis for his novel, come from ancient genizot, depositories in synagogues of books, letters and papers with the name of God on them, which, according to Jewish law, may not be destroyed. In essence, this is a story of forbidden love. We’re in Rouen, France, at the end of the 11th century. Vigdis, the daughter of a wealthy Norman aristocrat, and David, the son of the chief rabbi of Narbonne, who is studying at the yeshivah in that city, spot each other and a mutual attraction develops. In medieval France, however, getting married “without parental approval is almost inconceivable and a sure road to violence and slaughter,” writes author Stefan Hertmans, through his translator David McKay. Any inter-religious union “is beyond the imagining of the upper classes. Yet forbidden love is ever-present in human hearts — as it has always been.” The two begin to see each other on the streets and one day speak. “Their first conversation cannot have been easy at all — her first true greeting stiff and formal, his more flamboyant, in the southern style,” Hertmans writes. Their early tete-a-tetes must have been awkward. “His style of courtship would not have fitted the culture of a genteel Christian woman,” the author notes. “His upbringing required that he resort to age-old formulas and rituals: ‘O my Jewish bride, let me lead you to the altar as Moses led our ancestors out of Egypt.’ … Vigdis can’t have understood half of what he said.” Both her father and the head of the yeshivah find out about the love affair, and she is sent to a convent. David arranges her escape, and the young couple leaves Rouen, traveling 900 kilometers (560 miles) to David’s hometown, Narbonne. When knights seek Vigdis in that town, the couple flees again, this time to the isolated village of Moniou. Even that village is not remote enough to provide safety for them. In 1095, Pope Urban issued a call for the First Crusade, promising those who took part would get “plenary indulgences”— remittance for punishment for their sins. And, according to the author, the pope said in

Wikimedia Commons his speech that participants need not wait until they get to Jerusalem to earn their get-out-of-hell-or-purgatory passes by killing enemies of God. As Jews were the only non-Christians in Europe that the Crusaders might encounter on their way to the Holy Land, his meaning was clear: Crusaders were encouraged to murder Jews. A huge army — some 200 knights and hundreds of hangers on — descend on the village on the way to the Holy Land, and the couple’s luck runs out. David is killed and two of their three children are kidnapped. The description of the damage this mass of people did to the village is frightening. The knights and the others took over many homes, throwing out the residents, so they would have a comfortable place to sleep. They butchered, cooked and ate almost all the livestock in the area and devoured most of the other food in the village. They stole what they could find. Then, after getting drunk, they raped Jewish and other women, murdered many Jews of all ages and others, and set fire to the synagogue and other structures. The army left the following morning, its leaders oblivious to what they had done. The village had been left poverty-stricken, with little to eat and no way to repair the damage. Soon, Vigdis, now the Jewish woman Hamoutal, is on the move again, this time on her own and extremely vulnerable, as she searches for her children. Her journey takes her to Fustat, the first Muslim capital of Egypt, now part of Cairo, and eventually back to Europe. The hardships and abuse that she had to endure finally

broke her physically and mentally. From the beginning, I, and I’m sure other readers, had an overwhelming feeling that this would not end well. And if there was any doubt, the author explicitly assured readers that our suspicions were not unfounded. “The Convert” was difficult for me to read. I identified strongly with Hamoutal — as does the author — and the tortures of her body and soul were almost painful to me. Fortunately, the historical fiction is punctuated by descriptions of the author’s attempts to verify historical facts and retrace the journeys of the main characters, mainly Hamoutal.These long asides provide psychological relief from an intense, even nerve-wracking, tale. It also gives the author the opportunity to write poetically, in this instance about the village he lives in almost 1,000 years after Hamoutal was a resident. “The landscape smells sublime in these early hours; it breathes an ethereal beauty. On this spring morning all the irises are open, the wild cherry tree is in blossom, the rosemary is dense with bright little flowers, and the scent of thyme rises with the warmth of the dew.” Such beautiful prose helped mitigate my anti-Semitism-induced depression.

Taika Waititi’s big win & other Jewish moments from the 2020 Oscars

W

By Emily Burack

hen Adam Sandler was shut out of this year’s Academy Award nominations for “Uncut Gems,” the Oscars lost out on the chance to have an acceptance speech as hilarious as the one Sandler delivered Saturday at the Independent Film Spirit Awards. But this year’s Oscars had some pretty wonderful Jewish moments nonetheless. Here’s a roundup.

Māori Jewish director, writer and actor Taika Waititi had a big moment

“Today, we know Hitler as the evil madman who engineered the torture and murder of millions of people,” Cohen told Variety. “But if we don’t think more deeply about how he convinced half the world to help him, we leave the door open to a repeat performance. When Taika depicts him as the affable hero of a small boy’s imagination, our idea of Hitler is skewed like a needle scratching across a record. This imaginary Hitler reminds us of an uncomfortable reality — that in the right climate, what we come to imagine can be deadly.” Jewish actress Natalie Portman and Jewish actor Timothée Chalamet presented Waititi with the award. In the press room after winning, Waititi echoed his mother’s sentiment on the prescience of the film. He said he made the film in response to a “resurgence of hate and intolerance and hate speech.” “At the end of the war, there was a very clear rule: If you were a Nazi, you went to jail. Now, the rules have changed a bit: If you’re a Nazi, feel free to have a rally down in the town square and you can invite all your mates. So, something’s changed and something’s not right.”

Waititi, 44, took home the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Jojo Rabbit,” his first Oscar win and the first ever by an Indigenous director. Waititi’s “anti-hate” satire about a boy who has Adolf Hitler as an imaginary friend, was up for six awards, but Waititi’s win was the only one for the film. The director dedicated the award to “all the Indigenous kids in the world who want to do art and dance and write stories. We are the original storytellers and we can make it here as well.” Waititi’s father is from the Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, a Māori tribe. He also shouted out his Jewish mom: “Thank you for being my mother, and for many other reasons, but for giving me the book that I adapted. This film wouldn’t have existed without you doing that.” Waititi’s mom, Robin Cohen, told her son to read “Caging Skies” by Christine Leunens — the story that Waititi adapted into his satirical film.

Idina Menzel sings

Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa in “Frozen” (and its sequel) performed the Oscar-nominated song “Into the Unknown” with backup performers from around the world. The Jewish mom was introduced by her Jewish “Frozen” co-star, Josh Gad, who made a point to pronounce her name correctly, saying, “the iconic and brilliant

“HHHHH

Idina Menzel, pronounced exactly as it is spelled.” (A dig at John Travolta, who could not pronounce her name at the 2014 ceremony.)

tweeted her enthusiasm for Bong Joon Ho, the South Korean director whose “Parasite” became the first-ever nonEnglish-language film to win Best Picture.

Natalie Portman’s dress makes a statement

Jewish stars make memorable appearances as presenters

Portman’s dress was embroidered with the names of eight female directors who were snubbed by the Academy this year: Lulu Wang (“The Farewell”), Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”), Alma Har’el (“Honey Boy”), Lorene Scafaria (“Hustlers”), Celine Sciamma (“Portrait of a Lady on Fire”), Melina Matsoukas (“Queen & Slim”), Marielle Heller (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”), and Mati Drop (“Atlantics”). Israeli director Alma Har’el, who was included on the dress, tweeted: “My first time at the Oscars couldn’t have been more beautiful.” Later in the night, Har’el also

Portman and Chalamet were among several Jewish celebrities to be part of the host-less awards show. Beanie Feldstein, Gal Gadot, Steven Spielberg and Maya Rudolph also got to hand out prizes. Waititi also returned to honor the Indigenous populations of Southern California, acknowledging the Tongva, the Tataviam and the Chumash people who lived in what is now Los Angeles: “We acknowledge them as the first peoples of this land on which the motion pictures community lives and works.” WJW —JTA News and Features

You are going to crave this easy Israeli quiche

By Leanne Shor

A

mericans don’t have nearly the appreciation that Israelis do for quiche. In the States, it’s an unimaginative brunch addition that never really shines. But in Israel, it’s the star of many lunch tables and an incredible dairy dinner. Not to mention Shavuot, which could be called the “quiche holiday.” So what makes this Israeli-style quiche, known as a pashtida, so different than what you find elsewhere? First, the filling is far more creamy than eggy. A combination of three cheeses, milk and a touch of cream make this pashtida luxurious and rich. Second, most traditional quiches have a pie crust bottom and are open on the top. In Israel, you can find many types of quiche — with crispy layers of phyllo dough, flaky puff pastry or even thinly sliced potatoes. The beauty of this recipe is that you can easily switch up the vegetables in the filling depending on your taste and what you have. As long as you keep the cheese and milk ratios the same, you can be creative. Other combinations I love are sautéed mushrooms and onion, and leek and goat cheese. Ingredients 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed but cold 2 Yukon Gold potatoes, partially steamed and thinly sliced 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 eggs 1 zucchini 1 onion ½ cup heavy cream ½ cup whole milk ½ cup shredded Manchego ½ cup shredded Parmesan 3-4 tablespoons Boursin cheese ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon black pepper Beaten egg for egg wash Sesame seeds Directions Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Sauté the onion and zucchini in 2 tablespoons olive oil until tender and slightly caramelized. Set aside in a bowl to cool slightly. Spray a 9- or 10-inch pie pan with nonstick cooking spray, then drizzle the remaining tablespoon olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Spread the thinly sliced potatoes over the bottom of the pan in a circular pattern, each piece overlapping slightly. Set aside. In a medium-size bowl, whisk the 3 eggs, cream, milk, Parmesan, Manchego and Boursin to combine. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Add the sautéed vegetables to the egg and milk mixture, stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the potatoes in the pan. Cut a large 11-inch circle out of the puff pastry. Place the pastry on top of the filling in the pan. Gently fold the edges under and crimp. Brush the beaten egg on top and sprinkle generously with sesame seeds. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top is a deep golden brown. Serve with a big leafy salad and fried eggplant. WJW Published by The Nosher, a 70 Faces Media brand.

Pareve pastries to swoon over (and enjoy eating) By Linda Morel

K

osher bakers are always on the hunt for dairy-free dessert recipes to end meals featuring meat with a flourish. They seek pareve pastries as tantalizing as recipes calling for butter, milk or sour cream. The lactose-intolerant baker shares the same goals. Dairy products add rich flavor and a smooth finish. A satisfying substitute, almond milk equals cow’s milk’s velvety texture. In place of butter, oil and pareve margarine delicately moisten pastries. But when you remove dairy products, you need to boost flavor. A generous dash of the baking spices cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and cardamom excites the palette, as do nuts, dried cherries and raisins, bittersweet chocolate and the refreshing flavor of citrus fruit. There is no reason to settle for disappointing desserts, ones that look appealing but don’t taste very good. Instead, strive for dairy-free pastries that are proven crowd pleasers and inspire calls for second helpings. If you’re going to eat dessert, you should thoroughly enjoy it.

and cloves and mix again. Then gradually add the flour and mix on low until moistened. Add the almonds and cherries, or raisins, or chocolate chips. Briefly mix with the beater. Then knead the dough with your hands until thoroughly combined. Divide the dough into four equal parts. Shape each part into a fat rectangle. Dust a clean counter with flour. Move a dough rectangle to the dusted counter. Dust the top of the dough with some flour. Shape the dough into a log that is 2 inches wide by 10 inches long. Place this log on half of one of the lined cookie sheets. Repeat with the remaining dough, placing two logs on each cookie sheet, four logs in all. Place the cookie sheets in the oven, on the upper and lower racks. Bake for 15 minutes. Then open the oven and carefully place the upper cookie sheet on the lower rack, and the lower cookie sheet on the upper rack. Bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven. Using a large spatula, move the logs onto the cutting boards. The logs will not be baked through, so handle carefully. Cool for 5-10 minutes. On a diagonal, cut each log into half-inch slices, which resemble biscotti. Turn the slices on their sides

and move them to the second set of two parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Place the sheets in the oven and bake 5 minutes. Open the oven and reverse the cookie sheets, moving the lower one on top and the upper one on the bottom rack. Bake another 5 minutes. Move the mandelbrot to platters and cool to room temperature. Serve immediately or store in airtight containers for up to a week. This recipe freezes well.

Flourless Chocolate Torte | Pareve Yield: 10-12 slices Serve this sensational torte at Passover.

Equipment 9-inch springform pan Double boiler or a heatproof bowl that fits over a pot Ingredients Nonstick vegetable spray 5 large eggs 4 ounces of unsweetened chocolate 8 ounces of best quality semisweet chocolate ½ cup water 1-1/3 cups sugar, divided 1 cup and 1/3 cup 1 cup (2 sticks) nondairy margarine Optional garnish: raspberries

Directions Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat the springform pan with nonstick spray. Place 2 inches of water into the bottom portion of the double boiler, or the pot, if using. Bring the water to a simmer. Crack the eggs into the top of a double boiler or heatproof bowl. Momentarily place the top portion or bowl over the simmering water to warm the eggs — not to cook them. Remove the eggs from the simmering water and set aside. Warming eggs encourages them to increase in volume. In a medium-size pot, place the two chocolates, water, 1 cup of sugar and margarine. Heat over a medium flame, stirring with a spoon until the chocolates melt. Remove it from the flame and cool covered. Transfer the eggs to a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining 1/3 cup sugar. With an electric mixer, beat until the eggs triple in volume. With a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate mixture into the eggs. Pour it into the prepared springform pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes. The torte will be loose in the center. Remove it from the oven and cool to room temperature. Then refrigerate the torte for 4-12 hours. Remove it from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving. Release the sides of the springform pan and serve with raspberries, if desired. WJW Linda Morel is a Philadelphia-area food writer.

What’s happening at ...

Shaare Torah

Mini golf course is ‘pretty darn awesome’

By Samantha Cooper Staff Writer

O

nce a year, the inside of Shaare Torah, in Gaithersburg, is transformed into an 18-hole miniature golf course. This has been going on at the Conservative congregation for 11 years. It’s billed as a mini golf event and camp fair and pulls double duty introducing members to Jewish camps from across the country and raising money for the synagogue. “It was pretty darn awesome,” member Lew Fontek said about the recent event. Fontek designs and builds all the holes, which are sponsored by local organizations. Fontek said he develops each hole around its sponsor’s interests. One time, he designed a guitar-shaped hole for the Bender Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington because of its music program. He gives each one a punny name. This year there was a hole called “Jewrassic Park,” with toy dinosaurs and a miniature volcano. “Jew-piter in Action” requires players to navigate their balls through Jupiter’s

moons. “Shamrock Falls” includes a fountain. “We also had a jail that opens and closes,” he said. “We had fun with it.” He and others developed the course because it required few people to oversee and it brings in people from outside the congregation. Fontek became the course designer in the event’s third year. He used to be a handyman (he’s now the chief development officer for the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes) and he loves the challenge of designing unique and interesting holes. “Once you know what to do, some of the concepts are very simple. Some of them I’ve built in an hour,” he said. One of his favorite holes is called “Jew-da” (rhymes with Cuba, sort of). The golfer must get the ball from Florida to Cuba. It’s a challenging hole, Fontek explained, because the golfer must hit the ball over the water to land in the hole. Each hole can be folded up and packed away between the fundraising events. Fontek said he experiments with new holes in the interim. And he can play mini golf anytime he wants to. And his favorite golf course? “The right answer is Shaare Torah.” WJW

d’var torah

The man who kept Moses from burning out By Rabbi James R. Michaels Special to WJW This week’s Torah portion is Yitro, Exodus 18:1 - 20:23.

Q

uick question: How many Torah portions are named after Moses? The answer is — none. Does it seem ironic? Moses, the greatest leader of the Jewish people, the prophet without peer, the man who received the Torah and transmitted it to us doesn’t have his name on any of the 54 portions in the Torah. This week’s portion, however, bears the name of Moses’ father-in-law, Yitro. And it’s no ordinary portion: It describes the events at Mount Sinai, where Israel received the Torah. So why call it Yitro? One reason, of course, is that Yitro’s name appears in the first verse, so it follows the pattern of how all Torah portions are named. But that ignores the important role that Yitro plays in this portion. I believe the ancient rabbis named this portion for Yitro because they wanted to call attention to the lessons we can all learn from Yitro’s role in this story.

Yitro was a Midianite priest. When Moses escaped Egypt, he took refuge in Yitro’s camp and eventually married his daughter, Tziporah. Moses returned to Egypt to fulfill his mission of freeing the Israelites. Yitro heard of this great event and came to greet Moses. After a celebratory meal, Yitro offers Moses two pieces of advice. He had observed Moses sitting and making rulings on cases he’s asked to resolve. Each case was brought directly to Moses, creating a logjam of people seeking resolution. Yitro suggests that Moses establish a system of lower and intermediate courts, allowing the people to receive justice more quickly. Moses would resolve only the most difficult cases. Yitro’s idea was to bring relief for the people and enable them to have faith in the judicial system. He also saw that Moses would be burned out by this heavy judicial burden, and wouldn’t have time or energy to deal with his other responsibilities. Yitro’s second piece of advice is more spiritual. He says to Moses, “Teach the people the path they should walk and the things they should do.” This has been interpreted as meaning two things: First, Moses should teach the people Torah; then he

should help them find the spiritual meaning within the law. There’s a message for all of us in Yitro’s suggestion: Most of us know that there are Jewish religious practices that delineate holidays and seasons, as well as the blessings and mitzvot which we observe every day. The question we should ask is whether we can find the spiritual meaning of these practices. If not, there are resources to help: books, online lessons, local programs and rabbis we can ask for assistance. There’s a treasure trove of available information to enrich our lives. Questions for discussion: 1. As we go about our daily lives, do we run the risk of personal burnout? What do we do for self-care? 2. When we observe a mitzvah or a ritual, do we pause to reflect on its spiritual meaning? What can we do to enhance our spirituality? WJW Rabbi James R. Michaels is the director of pastoral education at the Charles E. Smith Life Communities.
