The Canton Jewish communityʼs website has a new look. We launched our website in September, 2008 through the UJC FedWeb program, which offered us the opportunity to have a larger web presence, with interactive features such as an online calendar, event registration and expandable templates. We began planning for a revised website in late 2009, taking into consideration the features that were most often visited on our site, as well as the features that FedWeb offered that we simply did not use. The result is a much more streamlined and efﬁcient site, that offers the same easy navigation and most-used features, as well as promotional space for our programs. Changes include navigation bars on the right side of the screen, and navigation icons on the bottom of the home page, a redesigned Community Calendar page and a more compact screen presence on all the pages. Our picture gallery now has two frames on one page, each that open into a small page of its own for easy viewing. www.jewishcanton.org The Stark Jewish News is mailed at no charge to Jewish individuals and families in Stark, Tuscarawas and Wayne Counties.

This man would look into the closed hands of the people and tell them what they were holding, advise them and help them. In the same town, there was another guy that objected to the old man and always tried to make the smart man fail and kept thinking of ways in which he could prove the smart man wrong. The mean guy had an idea. He would catch a butterﬂy in his hand and ask the smart old man, “what am I holding?” He ﬁgured that the old man would know so he decided to make it harder for the smart man. He thought, “well, after he tells me that I have a butterﬂy in my hands, I will ask him whether the butterﬂy is dead or alive. If his answer is that the butterﬂyʼs dead, I will open my hands, set him free and prove him wrong. If the answer is that the butterﬂyʼs alive, then, I will tighten my grip, kill the butterﬂy on the spot and again, prove the old smart man wrong.” The guy went to see the smart old man. He waited patiently for his turn and when his turn came, he asked the smart man, what was inside his hands. When the old man answered “a butterﬂy”, the guy started to laugh. At this point he asked him, whether the butterﬂy was dead or alive. The smart old man looked the other guy deep in the eyes and replied with the following answer: “well my friend, this is your call; the decision literally lies in your hands. You are to decide whether the butterﬂy will live or die”. The guy set the butterﬂy free, and apologized to the old man. This story tells us that a lot of decisions are for us to call. Everyday we have countless number of decisions to make. But all of these discussions have one thing in common, we are to always pick the good way, the better path, the right decision and not the crooked way, the twisted path and for sure the wrong decision. A positive attitude helps us build our thoughts in a positive way and allows us to walk on the path that leads to good achievements, good work and of course, good deeds. Friends, this month we are celebrating the holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai, although the association between the giving of the Torah (Matan Torah) and Shavuot is not explicit in the Biblical text. The holiday is one of the shalosha regalim, the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer. This is a great opportunity for the entire family to get together. Try to focus on the positive things in your life, like your family, your friends. Try to see the good in everybody around you and disregard their shortcomings and faults. The butterﬂy is now in your hands. This is your call. This is your time to decide whether you want to have a happy and positive life, or you want to keep looking for the negative side in everything around you and more importantly, in everyone around you.

Recently Partnership two doctors from the WGH with Israel traveled to Haiti to help with Medical needs following the recent earthquake. We should all be proud of their difﬁcult work. The following is a brief excerpt of a longer piece you can read on the Partnership website and see photos as well; (http://www.jewishagency.org/JewishAgency/ English/Israel/Partnerships/Regions/WesternGalilee/ News/2010/news-1003-Haiti.htm) “To Hell and Back” Included in the 240-member Israeli aid delegation were two doctors from the Western Galilee HospitalNahariya, Dr. Guy Lin, head of the Trauma Unit and Dr. Tsvi Sheleg, a resident in Ophthalmology. “The situation there was like something taken from Schindlerʼs List. I would grab an hourʼs sleep, and 7 STARK JEWISH NEWS • MAY 2010 • www.jewishcanton.org afterwards I would think – how did I allow myself to waste time sleeping? I could have saved another life in that hour. You feel like every minute of your time equals someoneʼs life or someoneʼs quality of life. One minute can be very critical to some individual there.” Thus spoke Dr. Guy Lin on his experience as a member of the Israeli relief delegation sent to disaster-stricken Haiti. Two doctors from Western Galilee hospital, Dr. Guy Lin, head of the Trauma Unit, and Dr. Tsvi Sheleg were part of the Israeli medical aid delegation that was sent to Haiti. Dr. Lin: “Our ﬁeld hospital was constructed at the edge of the airport where almost no damage occurred. But we found out that hell was only 10 minutes away. The rumor that a functioning hospital was being set up in the area spread quickly, and soon people began to appear on their own at the entrance. While Dr. Sheleg was busy with organizing the medical site on a neglected soccer ﬁeld, I set out to see what was happening in the surrounding ������������������� streets. I found concentrations of hundreds of people in various stages of dying. That was the worst sight I have ever seen in my life. There were simply hundreds of people lying one on top of another with open, infected wounds. At that point we understood that this was a catastrophe of epic proportions.” “Something that I particularly remember and will never forget – that look of gratitude on the faces of the Haitian people. During a brief respite in my hospital duties, I found time to wander around the streets outside the hospital compound. Until you see something like this with your own eyes, you canʼt believe it exists. Even in the neighborhoods that werenʼt touched by the disaster, you see unbelievable poverty, ﬁlth, dirt and neglect to the extent that you never see in China, in India or in the Gaza Strip. And then when you go back to the compound, you realize that these people are just thankful to God for the simple fact they were chosen to be admitted to the ﬁeld hospital. I remember the expressions on their faces. They kept saying all the time ʻGod bless you. God bless Israel.ʼ ” ����������������������������������������������������������� The Canton Chapter of Hadassah has received generous support from our members for this yearʼs Donor Campaign, and we thank each and every one of you.

There is no Religious school on May 9th so that students may fulfill the commandment of honoring their mothers. On May 12th Hebrew school will end. It is important that all students finish the Ramah (level) they are working on before the end of the year. I encourage you to send your children to every session to accomplish this. On May 23rd our 1st and 2nd grade classes will be having a tzuim. This is traditionally a celebration when one finishes a tractate of Talmud. In this case, it will be a celebration of learning our Hebrew letters. Students and parents will learn the last few letters together and then we will have a presentation by students and celebration. We will also provide second grade parents with information about next yearʼs weekday Hebrew program. Our final Religious school date will be May 23rd. We will have our Hey class graduation, teacher appreciation, and a program. Of course, the morning will conclude with our annual BBQ, sponsored and cooked by Temple Israel Brotherhood and Shaaray Torah Menʼs Club. I expect everyone to come with their appetites! Once again, I want to thank the community for their support of another terrific year. It truly takes a shtetl to educate a Jewish child and the Canton Jewish community is certainly up to the task! Have a great summer. ���� ��������� ���� �������������������������� ������������������ This year marks another milestone as the Canton Jewish Community moves toward its goal of uniting the Canton Jewish Community. For the ﬁrst time, students from Shaaray Torah and Temple Israel will participate in a combined Conﬁrmation ceremony on Shavuot. This change from two separate ceremonies was proposed by the Chadash Religious Committee, who made the recommendation to have a joint Conﬁrmation ceremony as well as a joint Consecration ceremony, for students in Chadash. “The students in Chadash study together,” said Chelle Cohen, joint chair with Amy Lakritz of the Chadash Religious Committee. “Our clergy is in full support of the joint service and we felt it was in the best interest of all concerned to unify, rather than to separate the students.” Rabbi Leah Herz, Hazzan Bruce Braun and Student Rabbi Loren Monosov have been studying with the students and will jointly celebrate this life cycle event with them. Wednesday, May 19 at 7:00 p.m. at Shaaray Torah The Community is invited The families of the 2010/5770 Conﬁrmation class invite the community to join us for this special ceremony. We are delighted that the entire community is coming together this year to conﬁrm the young adults from Temple Israel and Shaaray Torah. Please help us celebrate as our young adults conﬁrm their Judaism. The service and ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at Congregation Shaaray Torah. Dessert reception to follow. There is no cost, but reservations are requested. Please call the Chadash ofﬁce at 330-455-5197 or e-mail to [email protected] LOOK 10 YEARS YOUNGER!

Celebrate the staff through the years who worked to see that the Canton JCC was a second home for everyone who walked through the doors.

On behalf of the entire community, we wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors. You will soon be receiving our annual fund raising letter reGail Arenstein questing your support of the 2010 Jewish Family Servicesʼ Friends JFS Director Campaign. I ﬁnd that when I list our services to try to give an idea of how we impact different members of the community, my efforts often fall short. The stories of individuals tell it much better than I. Nanette Zamost generously wrote the following about her motherʼs (Mildred Brown) experience with Jewish Family Services. Please think about her story when our request for your support arrives. My mother, Mildred Brown, passed away last month. She was 94 years old and had lived in Canton for almost her entire life. Canton Jewish Family Services made it possible for her to spend her last years the way she wanted – living independently in her own home. I cannot say enough about the incredible job that these folks do. My brother and I moved away from Canton years ago, and after Dad died, we tried to get Mom to move to California with us. But she didnʼt want to leave Canton and she didnʼt want to move out of the home she had lived in for almost 50 years. These amazing women were there for her. It started with arranging for delivery of kosher meals and transportation to the doctor and senior activities. As time went on, Mom did not want to move out of her house, but she stopped driving, and her health began to fail. She was a very proud woman and did not want a “stranger” in her home taking care of her, so the professionals at Jewish Family Services came up with a plan. They checked on her daily: bringing her meals; calling her twice a day to remind her to take her medication; bringing her groceries; helping her with household upkeep and repairs; and just being there to chat and be her friends. Finally, when she could no longer continue to live on her own, they made all the arrangements for her to go to a wonderful skilled nursing facility, where they continued to visit her regularly.

Knowing that they were there for our mother helped give my brother and me peace of mind to know that she was living the way she wanted, and being well cared for, even though we were far away. We are so grateful and thankful to them. Jewish Family Services really made a difference in our lives. They provide an invaluable service to the Canton Jewish community.
