in those committees.

          And while we’re at it, a huge Yasher Koach to our immediate past president, Karen
Misler. Karen’s tenure as president was marked by a period of unprecedented change in the
history of our congregation, including the retirement of Rabbi Berger, more than seven
months of running the synagogue without a rabbi, as well as the search and hiring of both
an interim and long-term rabbi. This could have been an enormously stressful period in the
life of our congregation (and it was quite stressful at various points along the way), but in
the end, under Karen’s leadership, I believe we are a more cohesive community and have
more of a sense of shared purpose than ever before.

A Trip Down Memory Lane In Honor Of Our
“Double Chai” Members (Continued from page 6)
          In 1961, my family moved to Teaneck and joined Congregation Beth Sholom. It was
a very “warm and welcoming” shul. The services were led by Rabbi Schaeffer who was a
majestic hazzan and learned and passionate rabbi. On Friday nights and Shabbat, one could
feel the sense of community as we raised our glasses at the Kiddush table and sang...
“L’hayim Tovim Ul’shalom,” and welcomed and greeted each other and any new visitor with
great warmth.
          Shortly after joining, I volunteered to lead a teen-age club. Kids learned Israeli
songs and dances, Jewish culture, performed all over the county and developed leadership
qualities. In those days, for Sukkot, there were very few members who had their own lulavim
and etrogim, so the youth group would go down to the Lower East Side of New York on the            When you know that we called you

          Beginning of move towards egalitarianism, what was the Beth Sholom history in
that regard?
          On the Shabbat of a Bat Mitzvah, Rabbi Schaeffer allowed Bat Mitzvah girls to go
up on the bimah with their father for an aliyah to the Torah; at an auf ruf, the bride to be
was allowed to stand next to her future husband as he was called up to the Torah for an
aliyah. Then Bat Mitzvah girls were given aliyot, without their father standing by their side.

of their Bar Mitzvah, Ruth and Wally Cowan’s daughter, Laurie, protested that girls should

                                                      a) Proximity to JTS – many rabbis and educators found a proper home at Beth Sholom.
                                                      b) Establishment of an additional parallel service – Koleinu.
                                                      c) Addition of choirs – Tavim, Tzipporei Shalom, The Russian Chorus
                                                      d) Annual Shabbaton, adult education programs, and community involvement

                                                     But in my opinion, it was our foresight in adopting a policy of egalitarianism in this

Notes from the Parallel Minyan
At recent Parallel Minyan services, Alex Wulwick analyzed the structure and purpose of the
tochecha (curses) in Parshat Bechukotai. Jim Schwartz discussed the demographic challenge
facing American Jewry for Parshat Naso.

The Parallel Minyan is on a summer recess and will resume in September. It meets on the
first and third Saturdays of the month, starting at 9 a.m. with coffee and tea and an informal
Torah discussion, then continuing at 9:30 a.m. with davening and an always-different d’var
Torah. Everyone is always welcome to stop in and join us.                                         THEATRE TICKETS AVAILABLE
