Burshtein, it tells the story of an Orthodox Hassidic family

It won several Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Feature
film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best
Cinematography. Lead actress Hadas Yaron won Best

Dedic

In Memory of Shmuel Bass
“Rodfei is my home, whatever the home
needs, I do,” were the words that Shmuel lived by. Shmueli’s friendly nature and
generosity of spirit quickly made him one of Rodfei’s most beloved and dedicated
congregants. This year, we will be completing that Simchat Torah in his memory.
Both of his sons Ronen and Eitan will receive the special honors of the day (and
year) the Chatan Torah and the Chatan Beresheit. We will rejoice as Shmueli
rejoiced, a joy that was suffused with Ahavat Yisroel and Ahavat Torah.
Our Kol Ha’anarim is
given to those who
have demonstrated
commitment and
leadership to Jewish
education. This year,
Dan Ashlag is being
honored
Ronen Bass will be
honored with Chatan
Torah (Groom of the
Torah), the Aliyah
which completes the
yearly cycle of reading
from the Torah
We are very pleased
to honor Eitan
Bass with Chatan
Beresheit.
Simchat Torah Luncheon
Thank you to Annette Goldberg and Shelley Cohen-Sagi for sponsoring the wonderful Simchat Torah
luncheon. They have sponsored this lunch for many years in memory of their parents Hy & Lee Lazar.
Thank you to all who attended!
Starr Family Campus Dedication

RODFEI SHOLOM BOOK CLUB
Wednesday, November 5, at 7:30 at Rodfei
The Clothes on their Backs by Linda Grant (short-listed for the Man Booker Prize).
Vivien Kovacs, the bookish, sensitive protagonist of this novel grows up sheltered from the world by her
timid, Hungarian refugee parents, “mice-people” who moved to England in 1938. After a personal tragedy,
she uncovers their concealed past--against her father’s wishes—through a relationship with her notorious
slumlord uncle who, in his old age, wishes to share his life story. Plot-driven and artfully constructed, this
book about identity and belonging leaves the reader to think about serious themes, universal and timeless,
and the perils of hypocrisy which, when clothed in a decent suit, might well be overlooked.
Special Presentation!
On Wednesday, December 3, at 7:30 p.m., the Book Club will meet to discuss
The Woman Who Defied Kings: The Life and Times of Dona Gracie Nasi by Andree
Aelion Brooks.
The Rodfei Readers invite the community to attend the electronic conversation with
the author of this comprehensive biography of Dona Gracie Nasi, a Jewish
international banker during the Renaissance, who used her wealth and connections to operate
an underground railroad which saved many of her fellow Portuguese and Spanish – conversos from the Inquisition. If attending, please RSVP to [email protected] or 210.493.3557.
