Finally, We will Discuss How We Must Strengthen Jerusalem as the United Capital of Israel

Israel is under intense pressure to divide Jerusalem and share sovereignty with a Palestinian entity. Eastern Jerusalem, including the entire Old City, the Temple Mount and many other holy sites would fall under Arab rule.

During Arab rule from 1948-1967, non-Muslims were forbidden from access to Jerusalem's holy sites. Only Israel can guarantee free and open access to Jerusalem for all peoples and religions.

Please sign the Jerusalem Declaration to affirm that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish People and must remain the undivided capital of the State of Israel.

The declaration will be presented to Prime Minister Netanyahu, Jerusalem Mayor Barkat and the Israeli Knesset.

Click on the link below (or copy and paste into your browser) to sign the letter.

After you sign, we urge you to share this with everyone you know via Email, Facebook and Twitter.

Flowing river of wine gold in the sky suddenly angel shaking me did not know why

Please don't wake me I am fast sleep lying in my bed no appointments to keep

But you are awake angel said, walking around I am happy here don't make a sound

You must leave now want to be alone Angel said G-d calling wake up and atone!

Open up closed eyes you will not forsake fallen sparks to find for you to elevate

Another glass of wine just let me be happy in my dream many things to see

Angle struck me hard fell onto the floor Hazak, Hazak lazy man will sleep no more!

Evenings when lie down watches by my bed so I say Shema only prayers in head

Now sleeping and waking are all the same with angel I sing and praise His name

Sometimes we are asleep when really awake, and awake while we sleep. This poem came to me early this morning upon arising, after saying the Shema. Shabbat Shalom With regards,


Flowing river of wine gold in the sky suddenly angel shaking me did not know why

Please don't wake me I am fast sleep lying in my bed no appointments to keep

But you are awake angel said, walking around I am happy here don't make a sound

You must leave now want to be alone Angel said G-d calling wake up and atone!

Open up closed eyes you will not forsake fallen sparks to find for you to elevate

Another glass of wine just let me be happy in my dream many things to see

Angle struck me hard fell onto the floor Hazak, Hazak lazy man will sleep no more!

Evenings when lie down watches by my bed so I say Shema only prayers in head

Now sleeping and waking are all the same with angel I sing and praise His name

Here are some snippets:

Dr. Hamburger exposes the role of IBM in rounding up victims for the Nazis.

The Cuckoo Bird,

by Dr. Hamburger

Accursed is the leader like a Cuckoo bird Stealing other's precious chicks trusting in own words

Though heart is deceitful G-d knows what's inside Judged measure for measure in end cannot hide

Must cry to Hashem stand in the gate The Kings of Judah his prayers to take

Reference: Jeremiah Chapter 17

"To show devotion, be a soul in motion"

"When the leaders of Israel have given it all away, they will stand in the gate of Jerusalem, and cry to Hashem. Only the merits of the past righteous Kings of Judah will allow their prayers to be heard."

Subject: Trees, a new poem by Dr. Harry Hamburger

The Master of the Field looked after all the trees kept them at proper distance so that all might see

Brought forth buds and flowers with two words spoken there strung them in a garland created blessings and a prayer

Likutey Moharan # 65:2

Subject: Breakfast

I was in Philadephia last week, and had the opportunity to pray at the oldest Sephardic synagogue in America, and put on Tefillin. The Rabbi was very nice, and I recommend everyone visit there when you have a chance. You get two poems today because of my vacation last week.



Blessed works of your hands and everything that you do But if you do nothing will do nothing for you

If you study all day and never leave the shul then you have learned manure are nothing but a fool

You cannot change the world and hide inside your mind but must keep on trying then solutions you will find

Hard times are all around full of depression and despair G-d will be your partner ask for help and care!

Rats, a new poem by Dr. Harry Hamburger

Crawl into our holes when the siren sounds hide shivering in fear rats in the ground

When the fire falls radiation from the sky will we all watch while our children die?

Stand up, stand up and act like men be true Torah warriors really mean, "Never again!"

(NO MORE! "Time to beat our plow-shares into swords") Yoel

PJ Goes to School at Seven Early Childhood Programs

We all know that the power of reading Jewish stories can spark meaningful Jewish conversations at home. That spark is about to be ignited beyond the home to the classroom, on the playground and back home again, thanks to an innovative new program, PJ Goes to School. PJ Goes to School enables teachers in Early Childhood Programs to use PJ Library books to enrich and extend their curriculum, strengthening the bonds between home and school for their students and families.

In its second year nationwide, PJ Goes to School is entering select Florida communities, including Miami, and being introduced this 2011-2012 school year by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education. The seven Early Childhood Programs participating this pilot year are: Bet Breira School Preschool, Beth David/Gordon Schools ECC, RASG Hebrew Academy Preschool, Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Day School ECE, Lehrman Community Day School ECE, Temple Beth Sholom Foundation School, and Temple Judea’s Margaux Early Childhood School.

Now entering its third year in Miami, The PJ Library is an outreach program that mails free Jewish children’s books and music to families on a monthly basis. A program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, The PJ Library is made possible in our community thanks to the generosity of local funder, the Blank Family Foundation. Young subscribers range in age from 6 months to 8 years old. In additional to creating Jewish moments in the home, Miami’s PJ Library also strives to engage young families actively and in person through programs in collaboration with more than 20 Synagogue, JCC, agency and organizational partners in the community. Heading up The PJ Library Committee are Amanda Adler and Judy Kapiloff.

Alper JCC Jewish Book Festival Celebrates Creativity

Alper JCC Jewish Book Festival Celebrates Creativity

Dr. Deborah Lipstadt, author of "The Eichmann Trials", spoke recently at an awards ceremony and described how Jews embrace life by writing, reading and celebrating books. “We create. We innovate.” The talented authors participating in the Alper JCC’s 31st annual Jewish Book Festival bring us the past and creatively shape the new. Their stories range from Soviet Jewry to treasures in the Cairo Geniza, and their diverse backgrounds include a pro baseball player, a musical genius, the executive producer for the hit TV series 24, and a multi-millionaire who made it rich on the internet.

Women’s Day Luncheon on Friday, November 4th features Lisa Bloom, an award-winning journalist and a legal analyst for CBS News and CNN, who has covered every major crime and justice story of our time including Casey Anthony; the Duke rape scandal; the Saddam Hussein crimes against humanity tribunal; and the Michael Jackson child molestation case. In her provocative and entertaining book, "Think", Bloom outlines the ways that we as a society, have fallen off the intellectual path, and points to how damaging this has been to us on many levels. You’ll laugh at her no nonsense manner, question yourself, occasionally squirm, but, most importantly, think!

The festival opens on Monday, October 24 with Alice Hoffman, the distinguished author of eighteen novels, who makes history feel immediate and compelling in her latest book, "The Dovekeepers". Set in Israel in 70CE, this spellbinding story is based on the true events of Masada, where nine hundred Jews held out on a mountain against the Romans, and all but two women and five children were massacred. Just some of Hoffman’s bestsellers are "The Red Garden", revealing her love of mythology; "At Risk", a family dealing with AIDS, "Here on Earth", an Oprah Book Club choice, and "Practical Magic", exploring love and desire that was made into a film starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.

Shawn Green is a two-time All-Star Major League Baseball player whose remarkable career spanned fourteen years. One of the best-loved players in recent decades, and “the greatest Jewish baseball player since Sandy Koufax” (Kirkus Review), he shares the lessons the game has taught him about being present and finding inner stillness--even with a ball hurtling toward him at ninety-five mph. Part sports memoir filled with personal anecdotes and ballpark wisdom, and part spiritual journey, "The Way of Baseball", is a thoughtful exploration on how to live a meaningful, well-balanced life.

Charles Fox has composed the music for over 100 motion pictures and television films, including “Goodbye Columbus,” “Nine to Five,” “Happy Days,” “Laverne & Shirley,” and the original theme for “Monday Night Football.” Hear him play one of his familiar tunes, and enjoy a peek into Hollywood when he shares highlights of his career. He has worked with some of the greatest names in entertainment, film, television and records including: Barry Manilow, Jim Croce, Roberta Flack and Lena Horne. Mr. Fox is one of the most performed composers in the world, and has won two Emmys, and received the Best Song Grammy for “Killing Me Softly with His Song.”

Howard Gordon was the executive producer for the hit TV series 24. In his debut thriller Gideon’s War, we meet Gideon Davis, a world-class negotiator and peacemaker, who has just 48 hours to bring his rogue agent brother to Washington, D.C., from Southeast Asia before a twisted global conspiracy turns deadly. This masterfully told story juxtaposes a brother who makes peace vs. a brother who makes war. Surprise raffle for fans of 24!

Author presentations for the 31th Alper JCC Book Festival are held at the JCC and also at locations throughout south Miami. For a complete schedule call 305.271.9000 x 268 or log on to The Alper JCC is located at 11155 SW 112 Avenue, Kendall. Celebrate the breadth of creativity in literature at the 2011 Alper JCC Jewish Book Festival.

MOON OVER BUFFALO by Ken Ludwig, Runs September 14-25 This backstage farce, written by Ken Ludwig and directed by Michael Andron is filled with hilarious misunderstandings piled on madcap misadventures, comic invention, running gags, and sheer absurdity.

OLIVER! Book, Music, & Lyrics by Lionel Bart, Runs November 30-December 21 Hailed the world over as one of the best-loved family musicals of all time, Oliver brings to the stage some of Charles Dickens’ most unforgettable characters along with one of Broadway’s most memorable scores.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS by Robert Harling, Runs January 11-22 Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.

Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows Often called “Broadway’s perfect musical,” this Tony Award Winner, is set against the picturesque backdrop of New York City’s Broadway.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST by Oscar Wilde, Runs April 18-29 The famous comedy by Oscar Wilde, revolves around two young gentlemen in 1890s England who use the same false identity of “Ernest” on the sly. Their ruse works fine until they both fall in love with women using the fake name.

Kick Off Party @ Chabad Loft NMB

It's finally gonna open... A place for you to meet friends for coffee, or just hang out by yourself with an Ipad and your thoughts... A place to connect, to recharge, and to become a better person and a better Jew. No, its not another Starbucks ... though the coffee will be just as good... Starbucks does not offer Torah classes, or Kosher wine tastings, or opportunities to try new things or learn new skills.

No it is not a least in the classic sense... There are no dues, no uncomfortable moments when you first walk in, and no need to feel inept, or out of place... Though it is a place of prayer, and study, and good deeds... just very different from the one you rarely go to already.

Hope to see you at the Kickoff Party @ Chabad Loft NMB (18445 NE 19th AVE, 33179) Sept 1, 2011 Tailgating begins at 730 pm Featuring Elegant BBQ fare, great beer, and fine wine. Entrance: $36

The ceremonial "first ball" will be thrown @ 8:30 pm by Superbowl Champion Allan Veingrad who will motivate us with a discussion called "Overdrive At Over Time – Consistently Doing More Than What’s Expected"

Looking forward to seeing you @ Chabad Loft NMB very soon, And don't forget to do something to make the world great... Today!
