The Alan and Diane Lieberman Children’s Cultural Arts Series, presented through the Rabbi Norman Mussman Cultural Arts Department of the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center/Sanford L. Ziff Campus, 18900 NE 25th Ave., North Miami Beach, put on the first show of its 17th season with “Madeline and the Bad Hat” performed by ArtsPower National Touring Theatre.
“Madeline and the Bad Hat,” an original musical based upon the much-loved book, captures the blithe yet touching spirit of Ludwig Bemelmans’s Madeline series. It traced the adventures of a young Parisian girl who – despite starting off on the wrong foot with a mischievous new neighbor – eventually learns that first impressions aren’t everything.
Hundreds of elementary-age school children, from eight Miami-Dade area schools attended Monday morning’s production at the Julius Littman Performing Arts Theatre in North Miami Beach, and watched young Madeline as she and her teacher, Miss Clavel, and the other girls in her class, discover that the son of a Spanish Ambassador who moved next door, is a true horror! Rude and conceited, Pepito seemed at first to be nothing but trouble. When he unexpectedly finds himself in real danger, it’s up to the resourceful Madeline to get him out of it.
According to the MAR-JCC’s Assistant Executive Director, David Surowitz “Thanks to the generosity of Alan and Diane Lieberman, Commissioner Sally Heyman, The Children’s Trust, and The Department of Cultural Affairs of Miami-Dade County, this Series is committed to providing free, meaningful, enjoyable, and educational cultural arts experiences to young audiences through professional performing artists and theatre companies. This year, more than 3,500 elementary school children will attend the four part series.
Upcoming presentations of the Alan & Diane Lieberman Children’s Cultural Arts Series includes: Treasured Stories by Eric Carle, Black Violin, and The Ugly Duckling & Tortoise and the Hare. For more information about the Series, or about the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center, please call 305-932-4200, or go to www.marjcc.org

CAJE PRESIDENT AND CEO, DR. CHAIM Y. BOTWINICK PUBLISHES A NEW BOOK, THINK EXCELLENCE: HARNESSING YOUR POWER TO SUCCEED BEYOND GREATNESS
Posted by Mimi Klimberg on 10/26/2011 @ 04:22 PM
Dr. Chaim Y. Botwinick, President and CEO of the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education published a new book, entitled "Think Excellence: Harnessing Your Power to Succeed Beyond Greatness." Chaim describes why he wrote the book and gives an example of the powerful ideas it contains. He explains, "Think Excellence was conceived and written as a platform upon which to present and discuss the 9 Power Principles. These principles are a rich mosaic of enduring values, beliefs and concepts which can inspire and inform the way we think. Each Power Principle is intended to help us attain higher levels of personal and professional performance, achievement and fulfillment. Ultimately, as we embrace each Principle, we move one step closer to realizing our untapped potential.”
Many of these Principles are ideas that Chaim has implemented as the President and CEO of CAJE and, in fact, throughout his career. A perfect case in point is the last Principle, People Support what they Help to Create. When people are included at the inception of a project, they are often more passionate about it and are more likely to see it through to its ultimate success. The Leader in Me: Ensuring our Jewish Future, a major CAJE initiative is a perfect example. It was first imagined by a diverse group that included educational and lay leaders, community clergy and CAJE staff. Rabbi Ephraim Palgon, Principal of Rohr Middle School, and lay leader and CAJE Board member, Ariel Bentata were among the first to embrace this unique approach to developing leadership among our students. As enthusiasm for the idea grew, so did our commitment as a community to make it happen. Today the program is deeply embedded in four Miami Jewish day schools and more groups are interested. The power and passion that emanates from these leaders--who were there at the inception-- is palpable and has galvanized a broader base of supporters.
Chaim admits, “ People Support what they Help to Create, has become almost a mantra of mine; my staff and Board hear it often. At CAJE, we try to bring a strong team together at the outset, who plan and develop strategies. Our committees are active, plentiful, and really steer decision-making. On any given day, CAJE board members and educators are working hand-in-hand with staff to move our shared vision forward.”
The book was written with the intent of stimulating conversation, debate and reflection about excellence and its place in our lives. It provides readers with a more positive perspective and outlook on life and life's challenges. Chaim sums it up, "At the end of the day, folks need to embrace and celebrate life's challenges as ‘a glass half full rather than half empty.’ I want to encourage people to proactively react to life's experiences and realities. More often than not, positive thinking leads to positive results and outcomes.”
To learn more about Think Excellence, we invite you to a CAJE sponsored book signing event on Tuesday, November 8th. The event will be held at 8:00 p.m. at the home of Nina and Gary Yarus, 330 West 45th St., Miami Beach, FL 33140, RSVP by Nov. 2nd: Madeleine Madden, 305-576-4030 ext. 142, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.caje-miami.org
