These days, people wonder about the fate of the book. of course, as the people of the book, we

Jews have a particular interest. Yet we are probably more accurately thought of as the people

of the word. For a book has a clear beginning and a clear end. Even James Joyce's Finnegan's

Wake, a book that famously circles back on itself, swallowing its tale like a snake, has cut and

bound pages. Anyone can pick it up in a bookstore and see its beginning, middle, and end.

Yet our collection of texts is more like hypertext than a single book. Commentators lead on to

other commentators and it all relates, one to the other. Also, before there were books there was

the scroll. Scrolls are not so simple as books -- which is why they did not flourish once the book

was invented. Scrolls make it harder to skip ahead and they are not so clearly linear. Their circular

shape suggests depths beyond simple beginnings and endings. our central text,

the Torah, is written on a scroll.

As we reach the end of the Torah, we roll it back to begin again. In rewinding, one views every page -- every

column of text. You cannot flip to the first page. one must painstakingly revisit -- however briefly -- every page

of the scroll to reach the beginning again. The computer makes it easier to move, paste, revisit, and skip.

Nonetheless messages rely on the word. So the Jewish people with its portable culture, the culture of the word,

moves through different media: scrolls to screens, still seeking meaning, still thirsting for truth.

An Ambulance for Israel

Sol and Bella Liber dedicated a new ambulance to

Magen David Adom at Sinai Temple on April 22,

2012. The ambulance will be shipped to Israel in honor

of the Israel Defense Forces. Sol is one of the last surviving

fighters of the warsaw ghetto Uprising. He and Bella

have been active members of Sinai for over 37 years.

a ConCeRT oF WelCoMe

Traditions are important. They bind generations together. They

allow us to pass shared experiences from parent to

child and create continuity in our community.

However, sometimes a break from tradition

is equally important. In these instances the

novelty of changed circumstances allows us

to take notice of something new and different.

For many years Sinai Temple followed the

tradition of holding a Spring Dinner Dance

honoring one or more members for outstanding

service to our community.

The event allowed us to gather together

in a festive setting to celebrate and

acknowledge significant accomplishments.

Eric J. Diamond This year Sinai will break with tradition;

we will not hold a Dinner Dance. Instead, under the direction

of our co-chairs rachelle Marcus, Michael Nazarian and Sheri

rapaport, on June 10 we will present a night of musical welcome

with our new Cantor, Marcus Feldman. The night will include

a selection of Jewish and secular music aimed at presenting

Cantor Feldman to the congregation even before his official

start on July 1. Cantor Feldman will be joined by an outstanding

collection of singers and


while Cantor Feldman is a

Los Angeles native, he spent

much of his professional

life at Stephen S. wise

Temple. our concert is aimed at providing an early opportunity

for the community to meet Cantor Feldman and to enjoy his

music. By breaking with tradition and offering a very different

program, we seek to take notice of the significant change that

will shortly occur.

As we welcome Cantor Feldman we would be terribly remiss

if we did not also acknowledge Cantor Joseph gole for his

many years of service to our congregation. As he transitions

into his new role as our Cantor Emeritus we look forward to

Cantor gole’s continued involvement at Sinai; both in music

of this concert and in the rituals of our lives. we also need to

acknowledge Cantor Arianne Brown who touched so many lives

during her years at Sinai.

I look forward to seeing you at the Concert and at the delicious

Dessert reception that will follow.

a special example of our david and angella nazarian Youth leadership

Program in action:

My name is Ellie Dubin. I am currently at sophomore at Beverly Hills

High School. As a Nazarian Youth Leadership Fellow in 2010, I started a

program to provide musical theater enrichment to children at schools

which have lost their arts funding. It is called "Kesem Shel Shir, the Magic

of Music." My pilot program ran from April to June 2011 at Arlington

Heights Elementary School. My teen staff of high school actors, dancers,

and singers (including a few of my Nazarian Fellow friends, thank you!)

taught 20 elementary students the play Cinderella. The entire experience

was incredibly exciting for the students, the principal and the whole school


This summer I am bringing "Kesem Shel Shir, the Magic of Music" to Israel!

I have partnered with the Youth renewal Fund and will be teaching a twoweek

musical theater course in ramla at the Youth renewal Fund's

Ethan H. Freed Learning Center. The center provides academic enrichment

for underprivileged children living in the area. I secured the Disney license

to have the students learn and perform, High School Musical so 20 middle

school students will participate as an English immersion experience! For

information about bringing my program to a particular school with little or

no arts enrichment, contact me at

I would like to thank David and Angella Nazarian for their vision and

generosity in creating and funding this incredible opportunity for high

school students. I would also like to thank Sinai Temple, including

rabbi wolpe, rabbi guzik and everyone else who dedicated their time

and efforts towards implementing the fellowship's yearlong activities and

beyond. I look forward to being an active Nazarian Youth Fellow for years

to come.

Rosa Berman Ruder & Lili Shafai, Co-Presidents

Dear friends,

The fiscal year is drawing to a close, and my copresident

Lili and I are proud of how much our Sisterhood

has accomplished this past year. we introduced a

number of classes which have been well attended

and had many successful programs and events, such

as our delightful weekend retreat at Camp ramah

last october, our inspiring Shabbaton in February,

our Torah Fund Luncheon in March, a docent tour of

the getty Center in April, our Donor Luncheon in May, and our wonderful monthly Rosh Hodesh dinners

and programs at different members’ homes. we exceeded our goal in raising funds for our Torah Fund

campaign, and raised money for Project outreach, with our volunteers delivering food to elderly and

sick persons in our community. we have catered many beautiful extended Kiddush luncheons for various

lifecycle events.

we have worked hard, we have learned, we had fun, we have shared in the joys of each other’s lifecycle

events, and have been there for each other in times of illness and sadness. Most importantly, we have

established deep bonds of friendship in the process. we will be installing our new board on June 5th

and you are invited. Please contact Dee goozé for reservations at (310) 553-7468. Lili and I will continue

to be Sisterhood co-presidents and most of our board remains in place, with some new additions. we

will start planning new programs and classes very soon and look forward to a great year ahead.

Above all, Lili and I are very grateful to our dedicated members, many in portfolios not mentioned above,

who give their all, above the call of duty, to make things happen for Sisterhood and for the community

at large. we invite you to join Sisterhood and take advantage of the opportunity to find fulfillment in

our very worthwhile projects. when you become a member, you will receive our Sisterhood review,

with details of our many programs.

B’shalom, rosa Berman ruder
