Rabbi Jonathan Sacks set forth our challenge: Can we hear the voice of God in a language, a sensibility, a culture not our own? Do we speak to and within the narrow loyalties of our faith, or does our faith itself give rise to a generosity of spirit capable of recognizing the integrity—yes, even the sanctity—of worlds outside our faith? Can we find in the human other a trace of the Divine? Can we recognize God’s Image in one who is not in our image? Can we make space for difference? Just this is our secret: The more space we make for the “other,” the more we will discover about ourselves…. 4

For those reasons, we are encouraging people to wear the name badges, both for the sake of security and for the sake of community connection. But even if you choose not to wear them, it is very important that everyone must bring the High Holy day greeting card tickets to services. 9

FROM RABBI EVE RUDIN LT’s Education Program didn’t just change our name…over the past few years, we have changed our approach! First, our learners and families want choice. We now offer two pathways to our Kindergarten – Grade 6 families. Second, Jewish experiences and learning should be relevant to all our learners’ (children and parents) lives. Third, Jewish experiences and learning should be engaging and activity-based. Below is an overview of our two pathways and more information can be found on our KESHER webpage: Learner-Centered Experiences OR KESHER Family Discovery Programs Camp LT (Kindergarten-Grade 3): Family-Centered Experiences A Day Camp Activity-Based Model on Learning programs and Shabbat/holiday Sunday mornings celebrations for parent-child or full family Families are asked to join their learner a participation. few times a year for Jewish learning experiences. Learners and at least one parent gather for 1-2 LT Explores (Grades 4-6): learning experiences eachmonth as well as a monthly Shabbat or holiday celebration. Jewish learning and experiences which include KESHER Family Chavurah specialties based upon the STEAM Model: (a mixed-age group with multiple siblings) Theater and Movement, Sci-Tech, Music, Kindergarten – Grade 1 Family Discovery Visual Arts and more. Grades 2 – 3 Family Discovery Grades 4 – 5* Family Discovery Families are asked to join their learner a few times Grade 6* Family Discovery a year for Jewish learning experiences. * 4th - 6th Grade learners come to the Temple additionally once a week for Hebrew. Tentative calendars for each group can be downloaded on the registration page. Questions? Want to visit and see what is happening? Be in touch with Rabbi Eve Rudin, Director of Education, Youth and Families. LT Community at URJ Summer Programs This was a special summer for our Larchmont Temple community at our URJ Summer programs! Shoshy Levine, our Youth Engagement Coordinator, spent the summer at URJ Six Points Sci Tech, a specialty camp where scientific inquiry meets fun and Jewish exploration complements science and technology. This summer we had 3 LT Learners at Sci Tech! Rabbi Eve Rudin served on URJ Eisner faculty – teaching, leading services and connecting with campers and staff during the first session. We had 17 LT campers and staff at Eisner and were represented at URJ Crane Lake. Rabbi Rudin was joined on Shabbat morning by Rabbi Leora Frankel. Everyone had a great summer! Rabbi Sirkman was also at URJ Eisner Camp for the annual Leaders Assembly Shabbat to honor Louis Bordman, who just retired after serving as the Director of the URJ Northeast Camps for 24 years. 14

Alyssa Locke, a songleading Madricha in our Sunday KESHER program, spent a session at the URJ Kutz Camp for Reform Jewish teens. She majored in songleading and immersed herself in a vibrant high school Jewish community dedicated to Jewish learning, leadership and more. Adam Friedman went on the NFTY in Israel trip and had a great time experiencing the land of Israel. LT learners were campers (plus one staff member) at Camp Pinebrook, our local Reform Jewish day camp! The data shows that the impact of immersive Jewish programs such as summer camp and travel is substantial in increasing a young person’s engagement in Jewish life. According to the Foundation for Jewish Camp, “the impact is immediate—campers return home connected to a community and friends that will last them a lifetime. And it doesn’t stop there. Children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities.” Both LT and the Jewish community are here to support getting your child to a Jewish summer program. Our Summer and Israel Programs committee has scholarship dollars and the Foundation for Jewish Camp has first time camper incentives at Questions about choosing a program? Come talk to us!

LIBRARY CORNER history and father-son dynamics as it is about the by Ze’ev Aviezer nature of art itself, and the infinite ways we come to understand ourselves through it. With the beginning of another LT year our library will be purchasing the latest books of interest to American An Innocent Bystander: The Killing of Leon Klinghoffer Judaism. I am providing a representative sampler by Julie Salamon below.

This is Nathan Palestinian-American murdered in Los Angeles in a Englander's freshest and funniest work to date - a satire brutal act of retaliation. that touches, lightly and with unforgettable humor, on the conflict between religious and secular worlds, and the hypocrisies that run through both. The Flight Portfolio by Julie Orringer In 1940, Varian Fry traveled to Marseille carrying three thousand dollars and a list of imperiled artists and writers he hoped to help escape within a few weeks. Instead, he stayed more than a year, working to procure false documents, amass emergency funds, and arrange journeys across Spain and Portugal, where the refugees would embark for safer ports. His many clients included Hannah Arendt, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, and Marc Chagall, and the race against time to save them is a tale of forbidden love, high-stakes adventure, and unimaginable courage. Memento Park by Julie Orringer Winner of the 2019 Association of Jewish Libraries Jewish Fiction Award, One of Entertainment Weekly’s 20 Books to Read. A son learns more about his father than he ever could have imagined when a mysterious piece of art is unexpectedly restored to him. After receiving a call from the Australian consulate, Matt Santos becomes aware of a painting that he believes was looted from his family in Hungary during the Second World War. By the time Memento Park reaches its conclusion, Matt’s narrative is as much about family 16
