 We Would Like To Hear From YOU!
The year is quickly progressing and we are busily planning
for upcoming activities and events. We are grateful to all
those who executed our lively and lovely fashion “fling.” As
you are reading this, we have many “cooks in the kitchen”
preparing for other programs including our holiday gift
wrapping activity, our University On Wheels event high-
lighted in this Bulletin, and the Jewish Film Festival sched-
uled for later in January. We are also in full swing for our
Book & Author Luncheon scheduled in March and all our
study groups and workshops are prospering.
The big question we continue to ask is “Are we doing the
right thing; are we on track?” Our national Brandeis Com-
mittee office conducted a comprehensive survey a few
months back addressing this very question and the answers
were not surprising. Why do we come together? Is it for so-
cial reasons or to raise money for the University or for self-
development and learning? Needless to say, it‟s for all of       Denise Needleman, Arlene Zonder,
                                                                     Lori Barnes, Arlene Krane
these reasons. But, it‟s also not surprising to know that the
more remote one is from the University, the harder it is to connect with our original higher purpose:
to support Brandeis University students and programs.
We can go on and on telling you about the latest news from Brandeis, the most recent awards, the
cutting-edge technology, the break-through research and the profound community engagement but
the truth is that we really come together to learn and to enjoy each other‟s friendship. Now, let‟s be
totally honest: if we didn‟t share in a higher purpose, would we still come together? Obviously,
support for Brandeis is the basis and foundation for all other activity? So the real issue is not to de-
termine our priority but to balance our priorities and here is where we need your help.
Give us your ideas. What should we do? How can we better respond to your needs? What new or
different events and study groups would you like to see? What can we do to answer the call to ser-
vice and enrich our lives? Please be as specific as possible. The more precise you are, the more
you will see it happening. We know that we are in competition for membership with other very
worthy organizations. Frankly, we hope that our members participate in other groups and causes
because we want and need a broad base of experience and community involvement. At the same
time, we understand that we are special and we want to build on the unique role that we play in your
life. Please email any of us, Lori at, Arlene at, Denise

The Las Vegas Chapter of BNC is sponsoring a film, “MY AUSTRALIA” that will be
shown at the Adelson Campus, 9700 West Hillpointe Road Las Vegas, NV 89134 on
Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 4:00 p.m.

“MY AUSTRALIA” deals with a Polish family in the mid
1960s where a Jewish mother struggles to raise her two boys
who fell in with neo-Nazis. She realizes that she must take
her boys away from Poland and start a new life. The film ex-
plores their struggles for self-identity as immigrants, while
trying to build a new life in a foreign land. Tadek, the
younger son, will win your hearts.

To make this film, which we are sponsoring, a big success we need your help. The first
125 tickets will cover the costs of the movie rental. Every additional viewer is pure
profit for our BNC Las Vegas Chapter-endowed Scholarship fund. Buy tickets, be a
sponsor, encourage friends and neighbors to spend an afternoon watching a superior
film. Tickets are $10 and sponsors help us succeed and get four tickets for just $50. Take
advantage of a good deal.

                              On the Brandeis Campus
                            Carol Seskin – Chapter Information Officer

“This fall, just over 860 first-year students were among those chosen from more than
8900 applications, the most in Brandeis history.” This is surely a milestone in
Brandeis University‟s history, for it demonstrates the increased reputation and popu-
larity of becoming a Brandeis undergraduate. These new students come from a wide
variety of backgrounds and places; 37 states and 33 countries are represented by the
new class. With their individual talents, skills, and interests, 90% of them have
graduated in the top one quarter of their high school classes. In this current freshman
class, 70% receive some type of financial aid.
                                                                                            Carol Seskin

Along these lines, Brandeis University has again “been named one of the top schools and one of the
best values in the nation” by U.S. News & World Report. This is, in part, due to a rise in its academic
reputation, which persuades high school guidance counselors to encourage students to consider
Brandeis for continuing their academic careers.

Other recent newsworthy items on campus include scientific research into the effects of sleep depriva-
tion, especially affecting motion and cognitive skills, ongoing studies into the field of Parkinson‟s dis-
ease, and the observation of the growing number of women students in the sciences at Brandeis. From
the Sciences Dept. Chair, staff, and down the line, the number of women undergraduates in the science
fields has greatly increased in recent years, especially in the areas of neuroscience, biology, and phys-
ics. Brandeis has “an outstanding reputation and record of accomplishment” in these areas.”
On campus, the Rose Art Museum re-opened in celebration of its 50th anniversary, displaying its reno-
vations and 3 new exhibits. The ceremonies were attended by several hundred guests, who were
“welcomed back,” and wholeheartedly agreed that, as stated by the museum‟s director, Roy Dawes, “a
museum on a college campus is a sacred trust.”

A Message From Your Membership Team
Fourteen new and prospective members joined the Membership Team and BNC Board members on
October 17 at the home of Ruth Alexman to enjoy scrumptious pastries and chocolate dipped fruit and
learn about each other, Brandeis University and BNC membership. A good time was had by all and
brought us three new members! A warm welcome to Morton Kaner, Dr. Betty Pardo and Elaine
One month to go before a winner is announced in our Bring in a New Member Contest. The deadline
is December 31. The member to refer the most new prospects (who join BNC!) will be our guest at the
Book and Author Luncheon in March. Think about those friends and neighbors whom you could ap-
proach who might be receptive to a new involvement that offers education and friendship. Do you
have a friend who was once a member of BNC but let their membership lapse? Perhaps it's time to
bring that person back. Membership dues and Study Group fees have remained the same for a number
of years. With 39 diverse study groups and a full year of interesting events offered, it is well worth it!
Perhaps you know someone who has lived here a number of years, but is now retired and ready for a
different activity, or someone who is going through a lifestyle change and needs new ways to keep
busy. Would your husband or a male friend be interested in participating in the newly revitalized
Men's Club and study groups specifically geared to interest men or attending a group or event with
you as a couple? Whatever the reason, BNC has something to offer.
And finally, we say it again! EVERY member is a member of the Membership Team. We cannot do it
without your referrals! We have a dream and it goes like this: If every member brought in just one new
members our membership would double! Thank you for your efforts in making the dream happen!
The Membership Team will follow-up with all referrals. Contact Ruth Alexman at 341-6533 or e-mail:, or Addie Alter at 240-0459 or e-mail:

BNC Men’s Club Update
I am pleased to announce that we held our first Brandeis Men‟s Club meeting. Al-
though our attendance could have used a boost, the attendees were treated to a rare
Video of a “Roast” of Frank Sinatra. Call me if you don‟t know what a “Roast” is. It
was MC‟d by Dean Martin (who‟d been doing them for the prior five years, and it
took us back to 1980. We had about 1-1/2 hours of continuous laughs from Jimmy
Stewart, Ronald Reagan (before he became President). If you‟re bringing friends to
our next meeting they don‟t have to be members of our BNC (Brandeis National           Len Krane
Committee) Chapter.

There was no November meeting because of Thanksgiving. Despite the one-month break, our second
BNC meeting will fall on the fourth Thursday, December 22. After checking our costs, it looks like
we‟ll be able to do all of our future brunches for $15 per person for members as well as guests.. We
meet at Durango Hills Golf Club which is near the intersection of Cheyenne and Rampart. Walgreens is
right on the corner. There is a lovely view of the golf course from the golf club.

Following Brunch (11 a.m. to 12 p.m.) we will show a DVD which runs about one hour entitled “On
Location with Myron Cohen.” Your sides will ache from laughing..This was his last public appearance
and it was an absolute winner. Following the DVD, let‟s spend some time talking about what you
would like as future subjects for our brunches.

All BNC members and friends are welcome. Call Len Krane at 702-255-6667 or e-mail lenkra- for more information. Send the reservation form and check to Len Krane, 2552
