Incredible Sisterhood event tonight to meet Rabbi Dov, Delicious food (thanks to the chefs) delightful company, and we had a truly wonderful time tonight. SO glad I joined!!!
Dear friends,

As we remember together during this month of Yom HaShoah, thank you for inviting us again to share news about our new documentary, The Presence of Their Absence, featuring a new story tradition with a son of Holocaust survivors.

We follow Fred Zaidman on a journey to trace his inherited trauma. Armed with only scant clues from his late parents, he ventures into the unknown to tell his story for this first time.

With helpers in Poland, Israel, Germany, and an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta who guides us through a cemetery in Poland - Fred finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah, unshackles his pain and reconstructs his future.

Yad Vashem has called The Presence of Their Absence “a film for the ages”. We are delighted it has just come to Digital HD on iTunes and your other platforms:

I will be giving a presentation at the Intolerance and Holocaust Museum in Albuquerque on June 9th at 3:00pm. Lilo Waxman's dollhouse rooms and miniatures which were hidden from the N***s are on permanent display at the Museum. I will project family photos of Lilo and talk about her life. This photo is of Lilo on the ship from Germany to New Mexico in 1936.
NEW DOCUMENTARY REVEALS A HIDDEN SHOAH STORY

Dear friends,

It’s an honor for me to be at the forefront of a story tradition that belongs uniquely to children of Holocaust survivors. Thank you for inviting me to tell you more. My new film is quite a departure from my last one, LUNCH, about Jewish comedy legends:

The Presence of Their Absence follows a son of survivors on a journey to trace his inherited trauma. Armed with only scant clues from his late parents, Fred Zaidman ventures into the unknown to tell his story for this first time.

With helpers in Poland, Israel, Germany, and an unlikely source – a Baptist minister in Atlanta - Fred finds his roots in the ashes of the Shoah.

Yad Vashem has called The Presence of Their Absence “a film for the ages”. We are delighted it has just come to Digital HD on iTunes and your other platforms:

I hope you will view the film, send your thoughts, and share your personal stories on [email protected]

Introduction to Mussar
This Sunday, 12/16!

The spiritual practice of Mussar offers Jews ways to live purposeful and ethical lives. With roots in both the Tanakh and the Talmud, Mussar became a specific area of study and practice in the medieval period and it remains relevant and useful today. According to the Mussar Institute, "the goal of Mussar is to release the light of holiness that lives within the soul." Mussar offers, among other things, a concrete way to align your life with your values. Often it is not enough to say to yourself "stop being this way or that way." Real tools are needed.


Join Terry Lee Heller for an introductory presentation on Mussar and its practical applications.

Sunday, December 16th at 10:00 am at CBI

Cost: $10.00/person

The Academy of Jewish Learning's first "Giving Tashlich" was a great success. Here is what 50 loaves of bread looks like heading into Roadrunner Food Bank! We also collected over 50 other food items to donate. Thank you to Rabbi Flicker for setting this program up and to Stephanie and Monica at the Smith's on Carlisle for working with us to get this donation together. Thank you, too, to all the school families and teachers who came out on Sunday morning to participate and donate.
