Hope your summer is off to a great start.

When I was getting ready to move down

to Phoenix everyone said “Just wait for the

summer, it is so hot!” I have to say I am enjoying the heat so far and

it definitely beats the humidity in Minnesota or other cities I have

lived in. Summer at the JCC is off to a “hot” start with Day Camp

starting up, 40 young adults are attending our Taglit-Birthright Israel

Trip, preparation for the JCC Golf Tournament Fore the Kids is getting

underway and members such as our June member of the month John

McCombs are keeping in great shape and enjoying the facilities.

I am privileged to have come on board as the new President & CEO

of the Association and of your JCC. My first three months have been

incredible. I have found this to be a very welcoming community.

Thanks so much to all of those that have welcomed me and wished me

the best of luck; it has meant a lot to me.

This summer also brings some planning and changes as we look

to continuously improve our programs, service delivery and most

importantly the experiences you have every time you come to the JCC.

I am very excited to be part of the renaissance of our JCC and Jewish

community. My vision for the JCC is an organization which provides

experiences that enrich the lives of our members, participants and

community. My first focus will be on building a solid foundation from

which we can springboard our growth and fulfill our mission. During

the coming months we will be evaluating our departments looking at the

services we provide, the manner in which we provide them and creating

strategic plans to move ourselves forward in a manner of excellence.

I look forward to seeing you around the J and working with many of

you as we head down this new exciting chapter in the JCC’s and our

Jewish community’s life. To be truly successful in serving the needs of

our community, inspiring life balance and creating vibrant pathways

for Jewish life will take all of us. As is said in Peirke Avot – “It is not

your duty to complete the work, but neither are you excused from it”.

I am fortunate to have a great staff and wonderful board leadership.

Please refer your friends and neighbors to join the JCC, please make

your annual gift to the JCC to help us serve the community and please

come and enjoy all your JCC has to offer. Thank you for your past

commitment to the JCC, for your future participation and for being a

valued part of our family.

Mickey Lit Reading Corner

Seven years ago the Early Childhood Center dedicated

the Mickey Lit Reading Corner in memory of Mickey

Lit, a JCC preschool teacher for more than 28 years.

During Mickey’s years of teaching, she touched so many

lives. Children that were in her classroom many years ago

are now sending their children to the J.

The Ungar family in particular has now enrolled their

children in the preschool. On their first day back in

August, Suzanne Ungar walked by the reading Corner

and immediately recognized Mickey’s name and beloved

painted giraffe in the library. She shared her experience

with co-director, Dani Hibert, As we passed the Mickey

Lit Reading Corner, it made me feel at ease, knowing that I

remember my wonderful preschool experience, and know that

my son Emmett will be given the best here. Suzanne also

remembered Mickey reading to her, I have fond memories

of her voice, particularly of her reading to us at story time.

In addition to Mickey Lit leaving such a profound

impact on her students throughout the years, she also

left the school some of her teaching tools and books.

Recently, Marla Geser, Ethical Start coordinator, came

across a box of Mickey’s items and found beautiful

hand drawings representing some of the Jewish

holidays. Marla stated I wanted to preserve the drawings

and showcase them to the children and parents for years

to come. The Early Childhood Center has now framed

the work and they are on display in the hallways of the


Mickey was a valued and treasured teacher and the

Early Childhood Center would like to thank Mickey

for all of her hard work and dedication through out the

years. Truly it is amazing that one teacher can have such

an impact on past and future generations.

Give your children a summer experience that they will never forget!

Choosing the right afterschool program is more than simply finding

a safe place for your children when the school day ends. It means

finding a place where your child can have fun while being creative and

actively engaged in activities that encourage new friendships, learning

experiences and opportunities for personal growth. You want to find a

place where your child is listened to, treated with care, respected and

where they want to come to hang out with friends and learn.

Club J at the JCC offers all of this and more. We provide a quality

afterschool program that offers unique and exciting opportunities for

children in grades K - 5 in a comfortable and nurturing environment.

Through the leadership of dedicated staff, Club J participants are treated

to afternoons of fun and games while still completing their homework.

As noted by Club J mom Susan, “Club J continues to bring me so much

peace knowing that my children are secure and safe. They both have so much

fun. I have always said to anyone who is in need of an aftercare program to

consider Club J. Every time I come to pick my children up from Club J, I

can see in their smiling faces what a wonderful afternoon they have had and

that they enjoyed interacting with your staff. Everyday it seems that the time

they have spent at Club J has made a difference in their world! This is a gift

to our family and for that I will be forever grateful.”

As you can see, Club J makes a huge impact in the lives of children everyday. We are

committed to fostering a child’s growth and development in a place where a kid can be a kid.

A Gift of a Lifetime

Highlights of the Phoenix Community Taglit-Birthright Israel Trip: June 10 - 21, 2012

On Sunday, June 10, fourty young adults gathered at the Los Angeles

International Terminal, anxious and excited for a trip of a lifetime! I,

Erin Searle, Director of Adult Services & Cultural Arts, along with

Tamar Farber, Director of the Israel Center, were about to travel 15

hours with 40 Jewish young adults to the Holy Land, the Land of Milk

and Honey, Eretz Yisrael.

The gift of a Taglit-Birthright Israel trip is an invaluable gift for those

who are lucky to receive it. A combination of funds from the Israeli

Government, individual donors and philanthropists and local Jewish

communities worldwide, including the Jewish Community Association,

contribute to Taglit-Birthright Israel in order for it to be possible to send

thousands of young Jews to Israel each year. Each Taglit-Birthright Israel

trip is coordinated by a trip organizer; this year’s Phoenix community trip

was coordinated by Kenes-Awesome Israel. A fairly new player in the Taglit

world as a trip organizer, having run trips for about three seasons thus far,

they arranged a comprehensive itinerary that was both fun and educational.

As we toured the land of Israel, we breathed the air of our ancestors,

touched the walls of Jerusalem, wrote notes to place in the Kotel (Western

Wall), and tasted the unique flavors of the Land of Israel. The journey

around Israel first took our group to the South where we had a Bedouin

experience inclusive of dinner in Bedouin tents, desert camel riding and

an overnight under the stars. While waking up early in the morning is

usually not a highlight for many young adults, this group was excited to

wake up and hike Masada the very next day. After floating in the Dead

Sea (did you know it is the lowest place on earth?) the group was ready to

see what other parts of Israel had in store for them.

The next few days took our bus North where we experienced the

beauty of the Golan Heights, kayaked on the Hasbani River and had

our mifgash, or encounter, with our Israeli soldiers. The soldiers joined

our bus for about four days, where they participated in programming

just like the Americans and thus, the American participants were able

to meet and connect with Israelis their own age. The experiences and

sharing between the Israelis and Americans were among some of the

most indescribably beautiful parts of the trip. The learning, exchange of

information and connections that were developed will be the memories

that many remember for their lifetime.

Driving into Jerusalem and stopping to say the Shehecheyanu blessing (the

blessing that celebrates special occasions) was a very spiritual and emotional

experience for many of us this summer. Being in Jerusalem for the first time

in your life, after hearing about it in Hebrew School for years was exciting and

unbelievable for many of our participants. Seeing the sunset across the Jerusalem

stone, it was evident that Jerusalem really is the City of Gold, “Yerushalaim

shel Zahav.” From the happiness and joy found in Jerusalem, there is also the

sadness that comes from visiting Yad Va’shem, literally meaning hand and name,

which is the name of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Israel, as well as

Mt. Herzl, the final resting place of Israeli dignitaries and fallen soldiers. The

exploration between history and memory is a vital part of the Taglit-Birthright

Israel experience. The impact of the Holocaust has on Israeli society and culture

is important to understand when learning about our homeland. The final day

of our journey was spent in Tel Aviv. We visited Independence Hall – where we

had the opportunity to sit in the exact same seats as the leaders and dignitaries

who sat and heard the declaration of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948.

As it is stated on the Taglit-Birthright Israel website: The trip aims to strengthen

participants’ Jewish identity; to build an understanding, friendship and lasting

bond with the land and people of Israel; and to reinforce the solidarity of the

Jewish people worldwide. It is undeniably evident that this trip does exactly

that and more. Our group first met on May 2nd for an orientation session and

one participant said “am I crazy for travelling to a foreign country with 39

strangers?” And while everyone else laughed it off nervously, I knew that they

had no idea how close they would get on the trip. While the trip is only 10

days long, the bonds and connections formed – from the airplane flight to the

bus rides, sharing a camel hump together, and emotions at the Kotel (Western

Wall), this group of young adults from Phoenix were unquestionably no

longer strangers.

As we return “home” from our homeland, our participants reflect on their

journey of a lifetime. Memories they will never forget, and experiences that

they will tell their friends and family in hopes of keeping those memories alive

forever. While the Taglit-Birthright Israel experience is over for this group, the

journey and exploration of their Judaism continues.

Taglit-Birthright Israel received an allocation for 2012 from the Jewish Comminity Association and the Israel Overseas Council.

Why We Give - The Kurs

It’s all in the Family! by


There is a Hasidic saying,

“Everyone should carefully

observe which way his

heart draws him, and

then choose that way with

all his strength.” This is

certainly the case with

the Kur family, Kimberly,

Norm and boys Brian (9)

and Ethan (7), who, over

the years, have immersed

themselves in Jewish giving.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, it was Kimberly’s

parents who encouraged her to get involved in the

Jewish Federation. Kimberly recalls, “I immediately felt

plugged in. I felt that sense of community, belonging

and warmth that appealed to me.” It was a different

feeling from the secular community work she had

done previously, having deferred law school to work

for a national activist organization focused on ending

homelessness and poverty.

During Kimberly and Norm’s courtship, Kimberly

continued to take on new challenges as a board member

of the Young Leader Council of the Philadelphia

Federation. Soon after, Norm’s employment brought

them to Arizona, where the Jewish Federation of Greater

Phoenix immediately engaged Kimberly and Norm

in local causes. Norm supported Kimberly in all her

leadership roles, and as she became more involved, he

learned by osmosis. Kimberly and Norm participated

in many national and regional young leadership

conferences, and Kimberly served on UJC’s National

Young Leadership Cabinet. All the while Kimberly

continued to assume new positions first as a member

of the Federation’s Young Leadership Division Board

and later the Women’s Philanthropy Board. By 2009,

Kimberly was involved in full-time work, synagogue

and the Federation, not to mention, raising two young

boys. She was presented with the amazing opportunity

to become a Wexner Fellow that year and participated

with Norm in two of the summer institutes and engaged

in an intensive two-year course of study with 19 cohorts.

When it was time to complete the program with a mission

to Israel, Norm stayed behind to help their oldest son

Alisa B. Chatinsky

JCC Director of


transition through his first overnight camp experience, but

was none-the-less inspired by the program and Kimberly’s

dedication to the Jewish community and Israel.

In 2010, Kimberly joined the Valley of the Sun Jewish

Community Center board of directors. It was an easy

transition because of the family’s involvement in the JCC

since day one. “The J is our kids’ home away from home,”

Kimberly explained. “The boys have been involved in

almost every youth program which has given them a

positive sense of self and the community,” she added.

Brian shared that his favorite time at the JCC was “the

alone time I get when mom and dad work out.” Brian also

enjoys taking karate with Noel Washington every Tuesday

and Thursday, while brother Ethan loves to play basketball.

The boys have great pride in seeing their name listed as

donors—for the original campus campaign, as charter

members of the JCC and their picture on the Wall of

Honor for Habonim Society donors. Kimberly and Norm

have instilled the responsibility to give back. Brian and

Ethan have a share/save/spend allocation process for their

allowance to teach them tzedakah. They also participate

as a family in donorschoose.org, an online charity to

connect people to classrooms in need. Brian explained,

“Some people need more than us. It’s fun to give.” The

boys are also participating in tamhui, which stems from

a medieval practice when Jews donated to a community

collection plate, and those in need could take from

the collection. At Congregation Or Chadash Religious

School, they are designating portions of the collection for

donation to five worthy charitable organizations.

The Kur family is dedicated to the success of the new

Jewish Community Association and the JCC. Kimberly

is a member of the Association board of directors, and

Norm, in addition to serving on the finance committee

of their synagogue, serves on the JCC’s youth sports

committee. They believe the Association is critical to

building a welcoming, vibrant and sustainable Jewish

community that strategically allocates resources to

positively impact the lives of those in need. Drawn

through the passion in Kimberly’s heart and Norm’s

unwavering support, the entire family has been guided

to Jewish philanthropy—strengthening our community,

improving lives and teaching tzedakah.

Spotlight on the J

Yom Ha’Zikaron

The social hall was packed for the Yom Ha’Zikaron ceremony in honor of

Israel’s Memorial Day for fallen soldiers. The crowd which included many

teens from Hebrew High experienced a meaningful and emotional event

and connected to one of Israel’s most sacred days. Several members of the

community participated in the ceremony and spoke about their personal

experiences. Mr. Eyal Lev spoke about his cousins, two brothers from the

same family that both fell in defense of the State of Israel and described some

of the emotions that his bereaved family members have experienced. Among

the many volunteers who took part in the ceremony were several teens that

sang or played an instrument. Some of these teens have recently received

Grossman Israel Experience scholarships for a trip to Israel and they chose

to give back through volunteering on Yom Ha’Zikaron.

Yom Ha’Atzmaut

Over 2,000 people attended Israel at 64-

Celebrating the Arts while enjoying the many

activities, performances and fun atmosphere.

School children from across the Valley came

to the JCC with a purpose – either to perform

songs that they had been rehearsing in class or

to see their art work displayed in the building.

Children enjoyed many educational workshops;

including “green screen” photography where

they could chose their favorite location in Israel

and take a picture of themselves there. The Yuval

Ron Trio had the audience up on their feet dancing in circles to the tunes

of well known Israeli-Yemenite songs. Many participants who attended the

screening of Israel Inside commented that the movie was both educational

and inspirational and that they would like it screened again. Stay tuned for an

additional screening of Israel Inside in the Fall.

Fitness Expo

For the third consecutive year,

The JCC fitness department

has hosted the 2012 FitnessFest

Conference, April 19 - 22nd , at

our beautiful Campus.

Highlights of the weekend included sweating to Alex McLean’s QiGnition

dance workout, TRX master classes on the gym floor, Master Trainer Brett

Klika’s Body Weight Bootcamp with 90+ participants hooting and hollering,

and of course the sunshine sparkling over the many aqua workshops held at

our beautiful saltwater pool.

A huge applause to YOU, our JCC members, who were gracious, patient

and understanding to allow us to showcase our state-of-the-art facility to

more than 300 fitness professionals from across the country. A special thank

you to the entire FitnessFest staff and volunteers, Amy Abernethy, Dae

Williams, Leah from Levi Café, and our amazing security, maintenance and

housekeeping staff, who without, none of this could be possible.


Women’s Seder

On Thursday March 29 th , over 80 women

participated in the 3 rd Annual Women’s

Seder led by Rabbi Elana Kanter. Rabbi

Kanter led a moving and emotional service,

inclusive of clips of Debbie Friedman and her music. Each woman was

given a tambourine to use as they sang “Miriam’s Song.” Brandeis National

Committee co-sponsored the event, but women who attended were

affiliated with Brandeis, Hadassah, the JCC and many other organizations

in the Valley. The women who attended spanned generations as mothers,

daughters and grandmothers. The event was spiritual, uplifting and joyous.

A time of reflection and thanks, Rabbi Kanter surely inspired the women

who participated in the Seder. It seems as if every woman left excited and

looking forward to next year’s Seder.

Congratulations Pre-K Class of 2012!

Love, the ECC

J Gallery

Yom HaShoah –

Community Days of


April 16th - 22nd was the Community Days of

Remembrance commemorating the Holocaust.

This year was especially meaningful as we honored

WWII veterans. There was an art exhibit during

the week displaying vintage photographs of WWII

veterans with their stories of the war. We watched

the movie, The Rescuers, generously brought to us

by Margery and Peter Arnold. The documentary

traces the journey of Stephanie Nyombayire, a

young Rwandan anti-genocide activist who connects

with Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned Holocaust

historian, to travel across 15 countries and three

continents interviewing survivors and descendants

of the diplomats who rescued tens of thousands of Jews from the unspeakable horrors of the

Nazi death camps. The documentary highlights 15 different non-Jewish diplomats, some

even involved with the Nazi party, who risked their lives to save thousands of Jewish people.

While Nyombayire embarks upon this quest in an effort to uncover potential solutions for

the ongoing genocide in Darfur, what develops from her journey with Gilbert demonstrates

the ways in which the inherent good of the human spirit can surpass institutional evil no

matter what the circumstance may be.

On the actual day of Yom HaShoah, Thursday April 19th , we held a 12-hour Reading of

the Names, where volunteers representing different synagogues and groups from across the

Valley volunteered their time to read names of victims who perished in the Holocaust. There

was a short ceremony where Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane and Stuart Wachs, CEO of the

Jewish Community Association spoke. During this ceremony participants read poems and

prayers honoring Jewish War Veterans and commemorating the Holocaust. The community

was invited to listen to Harry Adler speak about his story as a German Jewish refugee who

returned to Europe as an American G.I. He met his wife, Ella Adler, a Holocaust survivor

while serving in the Army. He told his story and those in attendance were lucky to hear him

speak about his life and the lessons he learned from the Holocaust. The day culminated in

the community wide Yom HaShoah Commemoration, hosted by Congregation Beth Israel.

Over 500 people attended the event. The lessons of the Holocaust remembered each year, are

applicable to every generation, and every person – Jewish or non-Jewish…we must remember

the atrocities and learn from them, just as Nyombayire did in the documentary The Rescuers.

Look for Upcoming Artists

The inaugural year of the JGallery was off to a great

start. Karen Bell-Zinn, Freddie Lieberman and Lee

Zoloto all had the opportunity to exhibit their art

over the past few months. While the gallery is taking

a break this summer, it will start up the beginning

of September. Be on the look out for fabulous new

artist exhibits starting this Fall!

The JGallery provides space for local Jewish artists to

display their work. Proceeds benefit both the artist

as well as the JCC.

For more information about upcoming artists or to apply

for an exhibition, contact Erin Searle, erins@vosjcc.org.
