Many singers over the years have teamed up to record hit songs together. Only time can tell if a similar fate awaits Rose Grace and Rabbi David Kane, who are teaming up on August 15 th at 7:30 p.m. for a live musical Shabbat at Congregation B nai Torah. She will be the guest musical artist for the service, Rabbi Kane said. Rose and I will be cooking something up. This might be the first in a series if it s a hit. Welcome Back from Summer Vacation by Ray Weiss Unlike other duos, entertaining and enlightening a congregation with Jewish songs on Shabbat is the sole motivation for this new team, not recording Top 40 hits. But the music should be top shelf, given Rose Grace s impressive background. She is a Russian-born pianist who has performed concerts throughout the United States as a soloist and chamber music recitalist. Continued on pg 6...

But plenty of activities are in store right here at Congregation B nai Torah during the next few weeks for congregants of all ages. A Sunday School Open House is set for the morning of Sunday, Aug. 17. All current members, as well as prospective families with schoolage children, are welcome to attend. introducing younger people to the B nai Torah family. If anyone knows someone with kids, we d like for them to be invited to the open house, he said. Helen Farb, who oversees the religious school, said the open house program will have a Shabbat theme and include baking, crafts, storytelling, games, and music. The children will make Challah covers, and the rabbi will talk about what Shabbat means and teach songs, she said. I hope families will come, if they have children or grandchildren interested in a progressive conservative congregation. Maybe some families have recently moved to the area. This lets them know what we do. Continued on pg 6...

6 Page 6 The Torah Times Sisterhood News by Sue Goldberg For our synagogue, summer tends to be a slower time of year. Not for me summer tends to be my busiest time of year and it is certainly flying by. Many of our Sisterhood members are vacationing, others are preparing for children or grandchildren going off to college, some are just relaxing, and many others volunteering. As we look at the calendar, we realize that September is right around the corner. To us this means we return to a busy schedule celebrating and observing our many holidays. Selichot kicks off the High Holidays with an amazing program: Peri Smilow in concert and Selichot Experience (5:00 Workshop, 8:30 Havdallah and concert, refreshments, 10:00 Selichot). I look forward to seeing all our members attend. We will begin another year of religious school and other congregational events, including our first general Sisterhood meeting of the new year on September 11th. Stay tuned for more information on this meeting and its program. As the NEW YEAR begins please think about joining sisterhood if you are not a member. If you are a member, please attend our wonderful programs. If the programs do not interest you I encourage you to reach out to our board with your suggestions. Sisterhood is the backbone of the CBT Family there is a place for everyone! Don t be SHY step up, volunteer, pull a committee together for something of interest to you. My best wishes to each and every one of you and your families for a Healthy and Happy New Year! La Shanah Tova! Sue Goldberg, President cell home fax Welcome Back from Summer Vacation by Ray Weiss...cont. from pg 1 Rabbi Kane will hold another event for children a week earlier, on Friday Aug. 7, when Tot Shabbat resumes at 6 p.m. The Rabbi will tell stories and sing songs with the kids.

7 Page 7 Volume 22, Issue 12 JEWISH FEDERATION OF VOLUSIA AND FLAGLER COUNTIES 470 Andalusia Avenue - Ormond Beach, Florida (386) FAX. # (386) Dear Congregants: I am writing this note during July when Israel is at war and needs the support of all Jews. There are moments in life that define us. We don t always get to pick and choose them. They come, often unexpectedly, linger for a time, and then move on. This is one such moment. Speak up now unambiguously, crediblywhile literally millions of Israelis live from one alarm to another. Don t worry. There will be other occasions to voice your ongoing concerns about, and criticisms of, Israel. You know that no other country, neither America nor the European nations nor anyone else, would tolerate volleys of deadly rockets fired at them with the aim of causing murder and mayhem. If you are not aware, you should know that Israeli hospitals, in response to more than 12,000 rockets over the past 14 years alone, continue to provide life-saving medical care for residents of the Gaza Strip. If you read the Hamas Charter and understand the group s goal is not to end Israeli s settlement policy, but Israel, period. Hamas uses civilians in Gaza, including children, as human shields. I hope you are aware that Hamas opposes any Palestinian effort to reach peace with Israel, and will do everything possible to sabotage efforts in that direction. Prioritize your concerns, and, whatever your other issues with Israel might be, its ability to end the deadly attacks now tops the list. We here at the Federation through your donations are proud that the children in Sderot and Nitvot, Israel had our three bomb shelters to go to when the rockets came. You are aware that in 2005 Israel left Gaza, lock, stock, and barrel, in 2005, giving this strip of land the first chance in its history to govern itself. What did they do, but create suicide attacks. No one before Israel, not Egypt, not the British, not the Ottomans, no one, offered Gaza the opportunity that Israel did to chart its own destiny. Please continue to support Israel. This little country who has continually been a benefit to the world, still receives unprecedented criticism. Don't stand idly by - speak up and write about the injustices heaped upon her. This war has been costly and we are sending out an appeal to help Israel in her time of need. The reform and conservative movement have come together with the Jewish Federations in all cities to bring relief to Israel. Please give generously and 100% of all funds donated will go to people in need. Thank you donors for helping the Jewish Federation assist so many people who are in dire need. The Jerry Doliner Food Bank has been a godsend to so many good people. Our school supply program is legendary. Thank you to Abram & Kaplan Foundation for offering the matching grant of $15,000 if we match it in July. As I am writing this in July, I am not quite at the $15,000 mark, but I am confident we will reach our goal. The counselors are the ones who know best which child needs the help. We sent out a urgent appeal to the donors who had contributed before, asking them to contribute what they could afford and were amazed at the fantastic response we received. The High Holidays will be soon be here and we are asking each Temple s Congregants for their High Holiday food appeal to purchase only many of one item. Toilet paper is a must have commodity as well as peanut butter, we are asking you to supply us with these two items. Ray Max works very hard keeping the Food Pantry in operation and he feels that if each Congregation will bring only one of many items, his job will be made easier. We realize that many of you have your own hardships, but thank G-d you have always managed to give back to the less fortunate among us and we feel blessed that you care. Shalom, Dr. Howard Pranikoff, President Gloria Max Executive Director

Nova Rd Ormond Beach, FL First Class Mail Notes from Rabbi S. David Kane This will probably be remembered among the Jewish people as the summer of the war with Hamas. As a regular reader of Israeli newspapers, I have to share with you that nearly the entire Israeli spectrum of opinion feels that this war is necessary. Not only necessary, but in some quarters, it started right on time. In previous conflicts with Hamas, the Israeli military never encountered situations which surprised them. This conflict has revealed that Hamas was preparing for the slaughter of Jewish civilians though their tunnel network scheduled for Rosh Hashanah. It is hard for the vast spectrum of Israelis to put their compassion for Palestinian civilians ahead of danger to Israeli civilians. Still, Jewish people are unaccustomed to advocating war. Each time the IDF engages with terrorists, who plan their strategy based on sacrificing innocent civilians from their own population, innocent civilians do indeed get killed. After the first innocent civilian is killed, in order to prevent harm to Israelis, Jews all over the world are forced to harden our hearts; when we do so, we create tension within ourselves. We all remember during Passover Seder, that we remove drops of wine, the symbol of joy, as we recite the Ten Plagues because our joy at victory is reduced by the suffering of innocent Egyptians. This is not the first time that Israel has faced some form of Arab madness. Perhaps, I can remind you of a quote from Golda Meir, We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us. And so, Jews all around the world will pray for the madness to end, for Israel's safety, for the Palestinian people to turn their resources toward benefiting their own children, and for lasting peace.
