CBS MONTHLY NEWSLETTER | JANUARY 2016 | TEVET-SHEVAT 5776
Cantor’s Corner he new secular year brings with it new aspirations, inspiration, feelings of hope (Tikvah), growth, and change. This past year at CBS for me has “flown by”! You have grown, learned, sang, and worked together as a family. We are blessed to have each other and I feel truly blessed to be part of this community and appreciate you all very much. This month, we begin a new chapter in the Chumash. The 1st chapter of the new book is Shemot which is also the name of the book. “And these are the names of the Children of Israel who were coming to Egypt;” the book begins with a counting. Interesting enough, we also take an accounting of what we have done in the past to assist us in planning for the future. The name Pharaoh and Moses appear and the eventual enslavement and freedom of the Jews becomes a part of our national recollection. We are reminded of our narrow places, (Mitzra’im-Egypt), the things in our lives that hold us back from becoming a better self. What are those narrow places for you and how will you overcome them in the New Year? What is your plan? And when you do break free, how will you celebrate your newfound freedom?
Visiting Cantor Friday January 29 Jonathan L. Friedmann is a cantor, composer, musicologist, and biblical scholar. He spends his time serving as a pulpit cantor, composing and arranging sacred and secular music, researching the history and functions of synagogue song, exploring the roles of music in human life, and teaching Jewish Music History at the Academy for Jewish Religion, California.
Jonathan received Cantorial Ordination and a Masters in Jewish Sacred Music from the Academy for Jewish Religion, California. He also holds B.A. and M.A. degrees in Religious Studies from California State University, Long Beach, and a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible from North-West University (Potchefstroom, South Africa).

Tu Bishvat (15th of Shevat) is referred to as the New Year for trees. The fruits of the trees that blossom after the 15th were counted in ancient times as belonging to the next year for purposes of tithing. To celebrate Tu Bishvat, we eat a tree fruit that we have not yet tasted in the winter or fruits from Israel! Enjoy! Let’s celebrate Shabbat together, on Friday, January 29. Cantor / Dr. Jonathan Friedmann and I will be conducting a musical Shabbat together. Please see Cantor

A Message from the President The fascination of eating Chinese food on Christmas or Easter has its history well rooted in the migration to America. The story goes back probably to New York City's Lower East Side, central focus of the city's Jewish population. Most were within walking distance of New York's Chinatown. As the Jews migrated to the outer boroughs of New York, Chinese restaurants followed.
Chinese restaurateurs' lack of anti-Semitism gave Jews a sense of security. Chinese cuisine is unusually well suited to Jewish tastes because, unlike virtually any other cuisine available in America, traditional Chinese cooking does not use any milk products. But the foods used were basically Kosher style, i.e. no dairy and meat. Plus the fact that Chinese food uses garlic, rice, and chicken which were very familiar to Jewish people from Europe. Also Chinese food was not expensive and family sharing was very typical for a family dinner.
year (2015), there was an easy answer: go to synagogue! December 25 was a Friday last year, the Jewish Sabbath and we shouldn't be doing anything on Shabbat anyway! But that's not an answer for everybody, because a lot of Jews don't observe Shabbat strictly. With the idea of many places being closed and eating is so tied in with holidays, we found ourselves at Chinese Restaurants – one of very few places open on Christmas.
The Chinese do not celebrate Christmas any more than we do, so most Chinese restaurants are open on Christmas. In Philadelphia and New York, there are several Kosher certified Chinese restaurants to choose from, so that even the most observant Jew can eat Chinese on Christmas. As a side note, Justice Elena Kagan mentioned this in her Supreme Court confirmation hearings: when a senator asked her where she was on Christmas, she said, "You know, like all Jews, I was probably at a Chinese restaurant." And let’s not forget to take in a movie before dinner…another place open on Christmas. Kol Tuv, Bruce Rouman, CBS President
An interesting thing about researching this information on Chinese food, is that Chinese food looked unusually different from the other European food, so there is the idea that pork and shellfish (not kosher) didn't look like pork and shellfish when it was shredded up in little pieces in eggrolls. The saying of "don't ask, don't tell" approach to eating. It's called "safe treyf" where treyf means non-Kosher food. But some Jewish people won't eat pork, make exceptions in a Chinese restaurant – go figure! Back to the story and the tie to Christmas. While many Jews have assimilated to American holidays, Christmas is not one Jews celebrate. However we all have the time off to be with family and friends. So if Jews don't celebrate Christmas, then what do we do on December 25? Well, last

MyBatMITZVAHproject Dear Members of CBS, Since I was little I have always loved animals. It is important tome that all animals are safe and well cared for. As we all know there are many animals that are homeless and or are put in shelters without anyone to love them. This makes me sad and has motivated to do something so I can help as many of them out. For my Bat Mitzvah project, I will be working with the Corona Animal Shelter in helping them in getting as many supplies as they need for the different animals that they house at their facility. Animals such as dogs, cats and birds are in need of food, toys, and basic pet care supplies. My goal is to reach out to those of you who are willing to help out and give back to the animal shelter. Items such as bags of
Iams ONLY food (dog or cat food), pet beds, toys to play with, and Milkbone brand snacks are just a few suggestions that are needed. I will making a collection box to put out in the lobby of the synagogue that will hold your generous donations after the first of the year and I will continue to collect through the middle of March. With the help of my mom and brother, we will then drive the items over to the shelter and graciously give to the animals that are in need. Thank you for your help and support and please take care of your animals! Lindsay Pineiros
As most of you know, I have the pleasure (and truly enjoy this) of gathering names of families or individuals who wish to host an Oneg or Kiddish for our Shabbat services. I want to thank all of the families that sponsored Oneg Shabbat in 2015. They are listed in alphabetical order by last name. We truly appreciate you.

Just a reminder that services on January 1 will begin at 5:00PM until about 5:30PM and then whoever is interested can join us for dinner at Sizzler. Please make sure all electronic devices are turned OFF on Shabbat and all holidays and not turned back on until we have LEFT THE SYNAGOGUE. We appreciate your compliance in this policy.
The Chesed Committee was very busy in December. First, we lost our member Sandy Rubin, wife of Jerry Rubin. We provided the Meal of Condolence after the funeral. Thank you to Joel Friedberg, Gail Koren, and Bruce Williams for their help in setting up the meal at the home of Sandy’s son, Howard Rubin. Then we lost Joseph Driz, father of Shirli Driz and grandfather of Arrianna Wolfe. We provided the food for the Shiva Minyan at Shirli’s home on Wednesday, December 9. Bruce Williams and Jessi Rouman helped with the set up on that evening. Many guests who attended provided additional food for that Shiva.
Sunday, February 7 will be our annual World Wide Wrap at the synagogue in the morning. The Brotherhood will be serving breakfast for $5 a person, $10 per family. We want to continue to break our record from the previous year of wrapping more than 52 adults and children. I know we can do it so put it on your calendar right now! Jackie Williams, Ritual VP
Our synagogue Chanukah lighting on Friday evening, December 11 was inspirational. We had more than 15 Hanukiot lit that evening, including two that were made at Home Depot by the religious school students. It was quite a sight to see.

Legacy Award Honoree 2016 David & Noemi Schulman
Dave and Noemi met at a party when Dave was DJ and Noemi a guest, in 1984, were married in Anaheim in 1988, and they moved to Corona from Orange County in 1989. David and Noemi have spent a lot of time traveling and moving around the country and world putting family and Jewish roots first. David was born in Carmel, California; his dad was a Navy commander. Noemi
was born in Uruguay, so it’s easy to see why they have traveled to keep up with family and friends. Over the past 30 years, David and Noemi have worked at a number of jobs. David spent many years working on bank foreclosures, 17 years with AT&T in sales, and currently is working as a Sales Account Manager. Noemi has worked for Tupperware, Realty Executives, Corona-Norco Board of Realtors, Norco Chamber of Commerce, and over 10 years as manager for low-income senior housing communities in Norco and Corona. In 2013 David turned his photography hobby into a business and is a member of the Inland Empire Professional Photographer and Videographers Association, where he serves as Secretary of the organization. David volunteers his time at two other local organizations: the 100 Mile Club and Boy Scouts of America. Both David and Noemi have been extremely involved with both Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America. They have been blessed with two children,
Kol Echad Page 10
Michele and Tomas. Michele is currently the Director of Jewish Student Life for Hillel at the University of Connecticut and Tomas is an Eagle Scout who graduated a couple years ago from High School. He has worked in construction, building patios and doing remodeling. Both Michele and Tomas grew up at CBS attending both religious and Hebrew School having their Bat and Bar-Mitzvot, and being a part of Jewish youth groups through the Jewish Federation of Orange County and the synagogue’s USY chapter. After their Bar and Bat Mitzvot Tomas and Michele tutored Hebrew students for several years and assisted in leading services when asked. The Schulman’s involvement and support of CBS goes back over 20 years. Dave served on the Board of Directors working on the bylaws committee. In more recent years you would find Dave behind the grill cooking at bagel, egg, and pancake brunches, BBQ’s, Hanukkah parties, and wherever his skills are needed. A member of the Brotherhood and the Legacy Committee, our photographer and Torah lifter makes Dave a vital part of our congregation.
Religious School prepares for Legacy Luncheon The students were tasked with creating and decorating the challah covers that will be used at the 10th Annual Legacy Luncheon fundraiser. Teachers Robyn Winder, and daughter Aviella openly accepted the challenge for this. The Legacy Luncheon is our annual fundraiser for Congregation Beth Shalom and we hope everyone attends, as this March 6th marks the 10th consecutive year. You may purchase one of these customized challah covers at the luncheon.
Noemi has held a number of roles in our congregation. She is currently on the Board of Directors as the VP of our Sisterhood. She has worked on the Membership and Ritual, committees. Noemi’s bookmarks that she hands out at services were a great idea that has been in use for decades as well as her membership forms. Noemi is also our go to person for scheduling lay leaders for Friday services, and managing the schedule for yahrzeit, anniversary, and birthdays for our newsletter.
Our High Holy Days services and many behind the scenes activities have Dave and Noemi’s hand prints on them. Ensuring the many parts of the services are filled, to polishing the silver, Noemi is there. David loves the kitchen and is often found helping someone with the task of an oneg or cooking brunch for the many causes in our synagogue. This newsletter and other documents would not be as beautiful without David’s keen eye behind the camera to catch each moment.
Because of David and Noemi, the Schulman Family is a vital part of Congregation Beth Shalom’s past, present and future.

The Hanukah bazaar is my personal favorite event. It is a great opportunity to socialize with the synagogue membership. Also, we get to eat and shop. The Bazaar is a good fundraiser for the Religious School. We had some amazing assistance on putting this event together. Shirli Driz headed up the brunch part of this event. It was amazing as usual. We had some great assistance with food preparation as well. Jackie Williams, Jackie Ramsdell, Renee Miller, Cheryl Friedberg, and Dave Severson made some terrific dishes to add to our menu. Kudos to Jackie Ramsdell for handling the book fair and ticket sales for the event. Thank you to the pre event set up team that assisted on Saturday evening. Also special thanks to Dave Schulman for shopping. Yes, it takes a village of friends to put on this event. Thank you to all. The event was a great success!!
(Thank you David Schulman for the pictures which are on pages 4 through 6). On the fourth night of Chanukah, our Religious School visited the residents at Valencia Terrace, is a senior living community here in Corona. We told the residents the story of Chanukah and explained our traditions. Also, the students lit the Hanukiah and recited the blessings.
We all enjoyed our visit with the residents of Valencia Terrace.
The students in our Religious School continue to do various artistic projects, these photos show the creativity our teacher Robin has with making dreidels out of marshmallows and pretzels. The children also gather and sing to the beautiful music performed by Religious School teacher Aviella Winder. Marci S. Rouman, Education Director
As Cantor Shapiro often engages the congregation in answering, Mitzvah—Good Deeds! We receive various calls for outreach, from companionship to prayers, and our synagogue members seem to rise to the occasion. Yes, Good Deeds—a Mitzvah! In Mid-December, a call was made to CBS requesting help for a resident at Peppermint Ridge...Our Education Director took the responsibility to fulfill this mitzvah! Thank you Marci Rouman and Renee Tiezen! Here are words written by Marci about the venture:
This week I had the opportunity to visit a resident of Peppermint Ridge. She is a sweet Jewish lady who was lonely for some Jewish tradition. She lives in one of the group homes. At Chanukah, she missed her Jewish connection. Renee Tiezen and I visited her and shared some Chanukah tradition with her. Renee and I gained as much as she did from this outreach. I am so glad we were able to do this. Marci S. Rouman

WHY Sponsor an Oneg Shabbat
Challah’s can be furnished by the sponsor or as a convenience, Mark Koren will bake fresh Challahs for your oneg or other event. Challahs come in 2 sizes:
2 lbs (Plain, poppy or sesame is $7, OR raisincinnamon, choc chip, other flavors for $8) OR
1 lb. (Plain, poppy or sesame is $5, OR raisincinnamon, choc chip, other flavors for $6)
In Ma*gein A*vot (You Shield Our Ancestors), the line with "oneg" translates to "sated with pleasure". What better way to get to know other Congregants than by "breaking challah" together? After an uplifting musical service, we adjourn to "Happy Hour"! Every Member of our congregation is a welcoming tool of Membership where everyone benefits.
WHEN to Do an Oneg Shabat
We use 2 challahs for Friday Shabbat Evening. For orders contact Mark Koren 951-204-0635.

Did you know?? A grandson of slaves, a boy was born in a poor neighborhood of New Orleans known as the "Back of Town." His father abandoned the family when the child was an infant. His mother became a prostitute and the boy and his sister had to live with their grandmother. Early in life he proved to be gifted for music and with three other kids he sang in the streets of New Orleans. His first gains were coins that were thrown to them. A Jewish family, Karnofsky, who had immigrated from Lithuania to the USA, had pity for the 7-yearold boy and brought him into their ome. Initially giving 'work' in the house, to feed this hungry child. There he remained and slept in this Jewish family's home where, for the first time in his life, he was treated with kindness and tenderness.
Remembering Tibor Rubin On Saturday, December 5, 2015, a tremendous human being died. His name was Tibor Rubin. You can google his name find full stories and pages of accolades on this fine human being. Tibor was a:
1. Holocaust Survivor (Mauthhausen), 2. Former Prisoner of war (Korea), 3. Man who was responsible
for single handedly holding off North Korean invaders during the retreat to the Pusan perimeter,
the capture of several hundred North Korean invaders, and
saving the lives of about 40 of his fellow POWs (in captivity-!),
When he went to bed, Mrs. Karnovsky sang him a Russian Lullaby that he would sing with her. Later, he learned to sing and play several Russian and Jewish songs. Over time, this boy became the adopted son of this family.
In 2008, he was belatedly decorated with the Medal of Honor.
The Karnofskys gave him money to buy his first musical instrument; as was the custom in the Jewish families. They sincerely admired his musical talent.
He was the special guest of honor at three Concerts for Heroes held annually during the week prior to July 4 at the National Cemetery in Riverside.
Later, when he became a professional musician and composer, he used these Jewish melodies in compositions, such as St. James Infirmary and Go Down Moses. The little black boy grew up and wrote a book about this Jewish family who had adopted him in 1907. In memory of this family and until the end of his life, he wore a star of David and said that in this family, he had learned "how to live real life and determination." You might recognize his name. This little boy was called: Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. Louis Armstrong proudly spoke fluent Yiddish! And "Satchmo" is Yiddish for "Big Cheeks"!!!
Tibor Rubin spoke at one of our Kristallnacht sponsored events. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
