Join us for a talk  by author and professor of history, Jeremy Kuzmarov, son of Donna & Irwin, during Shabbat services.  His latest book, which he co-wrote with John Marciano, is titled "The Russians are Coming, Again".

 

 

Karl Marx famously wrote in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon that history repeats itself, "first as tragedy, then as farce." The Cold War waged between the United States and Soviet Union from 1945 until the latter's dissolution in 1991 was a great tragedy, resulting in millions of civilian deaths in proxy wars, and a destructive arms race that diverted money from social spending and nearly led to nuclear annihilation. The New Cold War between the United States and Russia is playing out as farce - a dangerous one at that. The Russians Are Coming, Again is a red flag to restore our historical consciousness about U.S.-Russian relations, and how denying this consciousness is leading to a repetition of past follies. 

 

Kuzmarov and Marciano's book is timely and trenchant. The authors argue that the Democrats' strategy, backed by the corporate media, of demonizing Russia and Putin in order to challenge Trump is not only dangerous, but also, based on the evidence so far, unjustified, misguided, and a major distraction. Grounding their argument in all-but-forgotten U.S.-Russian history, such as the 1918-20 Allied invasion of Soviet Russia, the book delivers a panoramic narrative of the First Cold War, showing it as an all-too-avoidable catastrophe run by the imperatives of class rule and political witch-hunts. The distortion of public memory surrounding the First Cold War has set the groundwork for the New Cold War, which the book explains is a key feature skewing the nation's politics yet again. This is an important, necessary book, one that, by including accounts of the wisdom and courage of the First Cold War's victims and dissidents, will inspire a new generation in today's new, dangerously farcical times.

Mazel Tov to Sophie Eli and her family on becoming Bat Mitzvah.
 
Sophia Jenny is a hard-working and thoughtful individual. She can be very sassy, and she uses that sassiness to advocate for herself and those whom she believes have not been treated fairly. Sophia loves books and reads a variety of subjects: history, mythology, philosophy, fiction, and horror, ranging from the Iliad to A God in the Shed. Sophia appreciated Jacques Barzun's From Dawn to Decadence, although he may have been somewhat idealistic from her point of view. As everyone who knows Sophia will attest, she has many, what she would term abrasive, opinions about almost everything and is very vocal about those opinions, even if she questions inwardly whether they are warranted or not. Her opinion about this bio, for example, was that it should not be written, thus she proceeded to write a parody of the bio starting with She Who Shall Not Be Named. As is most evident, Sophia likes debating. She was also in her school's engineering club for a number of years. Sophia feels that going through the Bat Mitzvah journey has made her into a more objective person.
 
May our Jewish Journeys B'nei Mitzvahs continue to be a source of blessing and pride to their families, community and the world!

This week's Kiddush is generously sponsored

on Bram becoming a Bar Mitzvah
 
Requesting an aliyah? Please arrive in the sanctuary by 10:00 am on 
Shabbat morning, and identify yourself to one of our parnassim
Mazel Tov to Bram Lackman-Mincoff
and his family on becoming Bar Mitzvah.
 
Bram just finished secondary I at Royal Vale High School where he is in the drama concentration and rocked the role of Roger in the end-of-year production of Grease. He also recently portrayed the old man who convinced the Rooster Prince of Breslov that he was not a rooster in the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre's Young Actors for Young Audiences production of that play. You might have caught him in our shul's post-Purim stand-up comedy shindig where he did a bit on spinach salad. Bram is also a regular on CKUT's monthly Anything Goes radio show. When he isn't performing, he avidly observes all that goes on around him, imitates the members of his family, does karate, plays baseball and devours cooking shows.
 
Through Yad Vashem's bar mitzvah twinning program, Bram is honoured to share his bar mitzvah with the memory of Pavel Gross who was born in Prague on June 9, 1928, was interned at Theresienstadt and then shortly after the Red Cross "inspection" of the camp, was transported to Auschwitz. Pavel would have turned 90 years old on Bram's 13th birthday if he hadn't been killed at Auschwitz in 1944 when he was 16.
 
Along with his performing talent, Bram's goodness, incredible sense of empathy and profoundness make his family so very proud of him. Shepping the naches of this beautiful milestone are his grandparents Sheila & Phillip Lackman and Zeldie & Lionel Mincoff, his parents Jodi Lackman & Murray Mincoff and his brothers Jeremy, Jared & Alex, as well as his aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Bram, we wish you mazel tov and may you keep making us laugh biz hundert un tzvantzik!!
 
May our Jewish Journeys B'nei Mitzvahs continue to be a source of blessing and pride to their families, community and the world!
Last week a group of us met at the Shaika Cafe on Sherbrooke with Rabbi Boris to hear about his adventures last month in Israel with "Honeymoon in Israel". We  had a nice time and the atmosphere was great.  We will meet at other cafes in the future.

Mazel Tov to Corben Dell and his family on becoming Bar Mitzvah.
 
Corben is an enthusiastic student who enjoys science, drama, and music.  He loves to read, play his clarinet, and leave Nerf darts under the living room furniture.  Earlier this year, Corben played Watson in his school production of Young Sherlock Holmes and is currently enjoying his first year of Bantam baseball.  He is happiest spending time with his friends gaming and making videos (sub to his YouTube channel: Winnie and Gang (just joking)), building his computer, and hanging out at the Design Lab, where he recently designed a robotic arm that is controlled by a wearable glove.  He has learned a lot about who he is and where he comes from since he began his bar mitzvah preparations last fall.  In particular, he has embraced the challenge of learning how to read Hebrew.  We are so proud of him and the dedication he has shown - Mazel Tov, Corben!
 
May our Jewish Journeys B'nei Mitzvahs continue to be a source of blessing and pride to their families, community and the world!

We are still looking for a job for Samer! He is an accountant and we now know that he is a whiz in databases and was involved in purchasing in his previous job. 
 
As we head into the summer this request is going to get a lot more urgent. The two parents and the seventeen-year-old daughter are taking French classes and these end in late July. That also means that the subsidy they receive for taking the classes ends as well. In addition, July is the last month this family receives their monthly cheque.
 
To get a copy of Samer's CV, please email eva.echenberg@gmail.com
Please note that by August, Samer will take pretty much any job. Let's be creative.

Jewish Journeys Assistant
      David Gerchicoff
 
I'm thrilled to have been given the opportunity to assist Rabbi Boris in the upcoming year's Jewish Journeys Program. Having grown up at Dorshei Emet, I am very happy to be able to continue to help out in the community through this position. I myself graduated from the former Pre B'nei Mitzvah Program and am looking forward to ensuring that future Bar and Bat Mitzvahs continue to have a memorable experience as they learn about their Jewish identity while making lasting friendships. I graduated Dawson this year from the North-South Studies profile and am eager to begin my studies at McGill next year where I will major in urban systems and pursue a double minor in linguistics and Arabic. I love to learn languages, travel and meet interesting new people so don't be shy to come say hi if you see me around!

         Summer Student: 

IT and Social Media Support Technician Jonathan Halliday

 

My family has been a member of Dorshei Emet since 2011. I joined for Rabbi Ron's Pre B'nei Mitzvah course where I made many good and long-lasting friendships! I attended Collège de Montréal for high school, where I streamed in the computer technology concentration program. I am now a second-year student at John Abbott College, studying graphic and web design. In my spare time, I train for triathlons and play electric bass in the jazz/fusion band Déjà Feel. You can catch me biking up Mount-Royal in my free time.

 

 

 

Syrian Refugees: May 2018 update

 

Siry and Noura have finished their year-long French courses. Noura is able to speak basic French while Siry feels he needs more real world practice. And he will have that opportunity. He has just been hired to work with a large, family-owned landscaping company, a job he got through one of our committee members, Susan Stock, who helped facilitate the contact with the company. Siry's college training in Syria was in landscape design, and even though this initial job is at an unskilled entry level, he might, over time, have the opportunity to work his way to more skilled work. For her part, Noura has decided not to look for work at present but be available at home for the family. She has registered for an English course which she attends once a week. The four children are happy at school and daycare, and now that the weather is warm, they are riding the bikes shul members provided.

 

Eyad is taking both French courses and the Tech Support Course at Champlain College, which means he is basically in school 7 days a week.  However, he is seeing progress and feels that he has found the right path for him. He will be trying again to get his driver's license, which will be helpful if/when they can get an adapted car. In the meantime, the adapted transport seems to be working; by calling him 10 minutes in advance, he doesn't have to wait outside for long periods of time. He knows that several people are very happy to give him lifts, but he doesn't want to impose; independence is very important for him, understandably. Yvonne is taking courses online at TELUQ and working part-time at a grocery store. She did not pass the English test for admittance into Concordia, so is working on that and will try again. Their focus now is to get Eyad working. Vanessa continues at daycare and her French is really coming along. The less stressful environment and opportunities to socialize with other kids are helping her to be calmer.

 

Samer, Raza and their daughter Laila are still enrolled in French courses, now at Level 4. How much French they will have by the end of July when the course ends is not clear, and they are still more comfortable with English than with French. Ashraf, the six year old who arrived with a limp, was operated on at the Shriners Hospital two weeks ago. He is recovering well, but the family has been told that it will take several months before they will be able to see the results of the intervention. Ashraf and his brother are both doing well in school. The main preoccupation for the family is finding Samer a job as an accountant. There were two responses from the appeal in the synagogue bulletin, but nothing has come from them to date. Members of the committee sent Samer's CV to their own accountants and perhaps now that the tax season is over, it might be a good time to remind them of the CV.
