6     February/March 2011 • Adar I/Adar II                                                Congregation B’nai Jeshurun: www.tbj.org
                                                TIKKUN OLAM
                                                               Mitzvah Corner
                                        The Mitzvah Mountain idea was born from a conversation I had with Robin
                                   Weidhorn and Jodi Cooperman concerning a friend I have who works at the Metro
                                    Regional Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Newark, which serves children who
                                    have been sexually abused. Three years ago, I learned that they had no funds
                                    for holiday gifts and Christmas was fast approaching. Robin and Jodi suggested
                                    we build a mountain and within a week the kids had their gifts. Amazing! Today, not
                                   only do we build the mountain, we fulfill wish lists. This year Sharon Weintraub and
                                 I collected over $10,000 worth of toys and gift cards for over 90 children.
                               Giving up a night of Chanukah for children that are abused is a great thing to do — if you
                          ask any adult. But do the kids really get it? Especially the little ones? I was not really certain
    until this year. At the toy store, my son Josh (age 5) was happy to pick out a toy for someone his age less fortunate,
    but not happy to leave without a toy for himself. I thought for sure that he did not conceptualize our intent.
    I was surprised, to say the least, when I was told the next day that not only was he boasting to his friends in
    Kindergarten about giving up a night of presents, he was also explaining to them why. His why was simple.
    Josh said, “This boy had a mommy or daddy that was mean to him and hurt him and he was sad inside.” Josh
    proudly said his present would make him happy again. He then came home and asked to give up another night.
       In a world of excess, it is so difficult to teach a child and give them the experience of what it really means
    to be charitable. I believe it is a gift to be able to really give to those less fortunate through TBJ, whether it is
    by building the Mitzvah Mountain or housing IHN homeless families. Again and again as people dropped off
    generous gifts for the mountain, they thanked me for allowing them the opportunity to help others. I am truly
    thankful to TBJ for giving me these priceless opportunities.
                                                                                                         Lianne Mandelbaum

                            What Does It Mean To Be…A Jewish Hero?
                            A Closer Look at Megilat Esther/The Book of Esther & the Real Story of Purim
                            Abra P. Lee, Religious School Director
                            Many of us know Purim for its noisemakers and masks, but what hidden meaning can be revealed
                            when contemporary Jews study this epic take of exile and redemption? Examine the deeper messages
                            imbedded in the text of Megilat Esther — the plots & sub-plots, the true meaning of Purim historically
                            and its relevance for us today.

           THE ROSALIND & ALFRED LIPPMAN GALLERY
                   Joel Katz – Lenticular Art • January 31st to March 14th

                                       Joel has always been excited by contemporary art involving color and form.
                                   Recently he has completed work on lenitcular art, an art form which involves multiple
                                   original images printed on an optical lens, which creates movement and animation
                                   when the viewer moves past the work. Lenticular Imaging is a truly exciting art
                                   form. It brings the viewer into play by involving that person or persons with the
                                   artwork. Only through intimacy can the viewer experience movement and change.
                                       Joel makes his images colorful, whimsical and playful, thereby creating a magical
                                   feeling which the viewer can sense. He enjoys watching people viewing his work and
                                   catching the surprise and smiles on their faces as they wonder how this work is done.
                                       Recently retired, Joel now has time to devote to his art, photography and exhibits
