                     Since you last heard from me, I’m very excited to report to you that we have hired a new Assistant Rabbi.
                     Rabbi Noah Arnow will be joining the storied Beth El klei kodesh on August 1st. During this hiring process,
                     we interviewed over 15 candidates and we had five meet with us on-site. All of these candidates were ex-
                     cellent in their own way, but I believe at the conclusion of this lengthy process, we found the right person for
                     Beth El.
                       Rabbi Arnow’s background is very interesting. After he graduated from Brown University, he worked on the
New York City Mayoral campaign of Mark Green. After that, he was Chief of Staff of New York City Councilmember, Eric Gioia.
Then, luckily for us, he decided to pursue becoming a rabbi, enrolling in the JTS. During his time at JTS, he has held various
internships, including at Rutgers Hillel, as well as at congregations in the Bronx and Upstate New York. He and his wife, Tammy
and their two children, Caleb (2 ½) and Hallel (7 months), will be joining our community this summer. For those of you who have
met Rabbi Arnow, you know how engaging and enthusiastic he is. We are extremely fortunate to have “landed” him and please
join me in welcoming the Arnow’s to the Greater Cherry Hill metropolitan area.
In other news, during our May Board of Trustees meeting, we passed our budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year. Despite a very
challenging economic environment, we have been able to limit the dues increase to 2%, while maintaining maintenance and se-
curity fees at a flat level. I can’t thank enough our Treasurer, Karen Schlessel and her Budget Committee for their hard work and
dedication in getting us to this point.
It has been a terrific year at Beth El and I am very excited for next year as well. I want to wish you an excellent summer.

be coming shortly. For now, we are asking you all to help us make this night special and please send us any photos
                        you may have of Rabbi Furman at Beth El over the years. Please send the pictures, with a
                        message. Include your name and contact information so we can be sure to get them back to
                        you after we finish creating this special tribute for Rabbi Furman. Please send pictures to
                        the synagogue, attention Ronit Boyd.

                   The Community Day of Caring held on March 21 raised over $ 6,400 for the American Red Cross disaster services.
                 The day was filled with activities including a gift bazaar, blood drive & concert by Rick Reicht. The blood drive collected

                 day. ALL proceeds from the food sales went to the Red Cross. Each vendor in attendance also made a contribution

Y I              collected over $800! What an amazing group of families & teachers! Our Habonim once again heard the call and helped run
                 the food concession stand and our Youth Commission sponsored the concert which brought people of all ages into the building

School Spirit Day at the ECC
  On May 3, 2010, the children of the Early Childhood Center showed their love for Beth El as they celebrated Spirit Day
at the school. They all participated in a Scavenger Hunt, designed specifically for their age group by one of
our teachers, Morah Rinat. Some jumped through hoops, others danced the limbo, most hopped, walked and
ran, following the directions leading to the next clue. In the end, they all won when they found the water-
melon treat in the refrigerator in their room.
  The children also ran an obstacle course set up by our gym instructors of Kickin’ Flips. At the end of that session, each
age group performed the school cheer! (Bet you didn’t even know we had one!)

          ECC Teachers Trained in CPR and First Aid
            During the month of May, the majority of the ECC staff went through CPR and First Aid training given by the
          American Red Cross. IT is rigorous training in and of itself, but even more so because the course is given from
          4pm - 9pm after the teachers have already worked a whole day. Congratulations to all who became certified.

Baby Steps and Beyond…. Taking Off Full Steam Ahead
  In the last Beth El News edition, we announced the beginning of a new initiative to attract families to Beth El.
WE started “One-derful Ones”, a class for Moms and their 10-19 month olds to interact together in a fun filled,
hands-on experience. The response was so overwhelming that we opened a second class to accommodate the
  We also offer a “What’s New Mommy” class for new Moms and their infants. This group encourages new Moms to share
their experiences and support each other as they begin their crash course in parenting. It began in early May and the
parents seem to enjoy it immensely.
  We are planning more classes like the ones mentioned above to continue for new families and are planning new endeavors
so their children may grow and learn together. Here is a list of our current offerings:
                               • What’s New Mommy?                       0-3 months
                               • Watch Me Grow!                           3-6 months
                               • Creative Crawlers                       6-12 months
                               • ONE-derful Ones                        10-18 months
                               • Get Ready for School                   18-24 months
                                  • Stroller Strides and other wellness programs
              In addition, we are planning parenting programs for Mom & Dad and for working parents as well.
Camp ‘N’ Kids begins June 28
             If you have a child between the ages 2yrs. & 4yrs., check out Beth El’s camp program. Your child can come
             any 3 to 5 days a week, half or full days. Each week the children will learn about a fun filled theme like the
             Circus or animals and will have sports, arts & crafts, games and experiences all related to the theme. Water
sprinklers & water tables give the little ones a chance to splash & play while keeping cool in our beautiful play areas.

                                          A YEAR IN REVIEW AND A LOOK AHEAD

                      There’s been lots going on & even more about to happen with Beth El Youth Groups. We had our closing
                      program on May 2 with Religious School. The highlight of the event in Sarah Goldfield’s opinion was WIN-
                      NING THE iTouch. That’s right; Sarah won an iTouch. ALL youth group members names were submitted to
                      the raffle & one lucky winner took the iTouch home. We all wish Sarah much fun with her new gadget. Next
                      year, sign up your children for youth groups & their names will be entered into a raffle as well. The odds are
                      pretty good, just ask Sarah!
                      KADIMA had a great time on May 23 at Great Adventure. USY are off to the Phillies in June.
Our USY has lots to be proud of. They won several awards at the Spring Regional Convention including member retention, in-
creased Kadima membership as well as Tikkun Olam donation. We welcome our new USY Board, we wish them much luck next
year & look forward to the great programs they’ll bring to our building. Lets all take a moment to thank our wonderful advisors for a
great year. Machar had outstanding attendance at events & Tracey Rebock handled it all, as usual. Chaverim said goodbye to
an advisor mid-year, but Amanda Ross stepped in, took over & added great energy to the program. Tammy Kornfeld breathed
new life into Kadima with great programs. Chaim Respes and his USY Board brought home awards, but more importantly
showed our teens Jewish can be fun. At the head of it all was Debbi Silverman, our Youth Commission Chair. Debbi is moving
on after several years at the helm. Thank you Debbi for your time and dedication to Beth El youth!!!! Filling her shoes is incoming
chair, David Breslau. We wish David luck & are excited to see the innovation he will bring to the youth of our Shul. David is look-
ing to shake things up a bit. If you have ideas to share, or are interested in joining the Youth Commission, please feel free to con-
tact him at We are always looking for dedicated parents.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the Fall…, but until then, be sure to sign your kids up for MITZVAH CAMP 2010.
A camp for children in grades K - 5 (current year) being held the week of Aug 30. A brochure is in the religious school mailing & is
available on the Youth Group website. It is an amazing way to end the summer. Your child/children can attend for a day or a
week. Space is limited, so sign up early!
