Sharing the love — bringing baseball to Israel

image
Kenneth Fried in Sderot at the dedication of a youth recreational center.

Dr. Kenneth Fried loves baseball. He also loves Israel.

Working with the Jewish National Fund, the Demarest resident — and chair of “Field of Dreams,” JNF’s “hardball mission to the Holy Land” — has found a way to combine those two interests.

Several years ago, Fried and his wife Sharon, both physicians, were approached by JNF to help establish a secure indoor recreational center for the youth population of Sderot. The couple seemed a likely choice, having provided outdoor recreation equipment to the Solomon Schechter Day School in New Milford, where the bases are dedicated to their four daughters.

Coming from a family of athlete/physicians, Fried — a vascular surgeon whose parents, Drs. Seymour and Sylvia Fried, live in Tenafly — told the Standard at the time, “We feel physical education is part of growing up along with academics.”

“I was enamored of the experience,” Fried said of his involvement in the Sderot project. He was also impressed by the JNF projects he saw in Israel.

Now, his enthusiasm is directed toward another project. Approached once again by JNF — where he has been named to the group’s North Jersey board — he said “a light bulb went off” when he realized that the competitive men’s baseball games he’s been participating in here could also be played in Israel.

Part of a baseball league dubbed “A League of Our Own,” which includes 18 teams, Fried says “probably a third of the members are Jewish, because of the demographics.”

Members play both in North Jersey and in Florida. One of his team members is Fair Lawn resident Ritchard Rosen, who will be participating in the Israel trip.

Fried thought, “Why not do this in Israel as well?” he said.

The plan came together when he was on a bus, speaking with Russell Robinson, the chief executive officer of JNF. The two were talking about the Israel Baseball League, launched several years with great fanfare but little success.

“He said JNF felt there still was a strong interest” in developing baseball in Israel, said Fried. “It was an agenda they wanted to pursue.”

Fried believes strongly in the power of baseball.

“It becomes part of one’s own fabric and personality,” he said. “Your experiences are better when you connect to it.”

The plan, he said, is to bring a group of baseball lovers to Israel and “to start with the youth, running clinics in addition to participating in games against Israeli teams.” The Israel Association of Baseball, he said, has four teams in four cities.

Mission participants will have an opportunity “to see Israel through JNF eyes” and use field facilities to connect with Israelis through baseball, said Fried. In addition, “We’d like to try to sow the seeds for a more established youth program, maybe starting a pilot project like a baseball academy.”

Because Israel has many expatriate Americans and Canadians who already love baseball,
the sport “could become part of the fabric of Israel sports,” he said, suggesting that the IBL didn’t work because “Israelis don’t understand the slow pace of baseball. They have to learn the game.”

He called it shortsighted to assume that “if you build it, they will come,” unless the groundwork has been properly laid and baseball is partnered with a youth program.

While JNF’s “e-mail blast” has generated tremendous interest, he said, the trip, originally slated for May 8-15, will need to be rescheduled, since many respondents have said they need more time to prepare. In addition, to keep costs affordable for the different constituencies who might attend, JNF has agreed to make side trips optional to participants who are coming mainly to play baseball.

“We’re hoping this will become an annual thing,” said Fried. “People are coming out of the woodwork. Three people want to send their sons or nephews who are playing college baseball, youth who need a different kind of Jewish connection. Another e-mail was from a kid looking for a mitzvah project and wanting to send baseball equipment to Israeli kids.”

He also received a note from a man on Kibbutz Lotan in southern Israel who would like to introduce baseball to the kibbutz and needs equipment — and another from a graduate student at the Jewish Theological Seminary who wants to play baseball and explore how Israeli society accepts the sport.

Hudson cultural forum tackles diverse issues

image
From left, Burt Gitlin, Hank Walden, Gail Walden, David Dunkel, and Arthur Goldberg discuss topics of Jewish concern at a HudsonJewish social/intellectual salon.

When North Bergen resident Burt Gitlin launched the HudsonJewish social/intellectual salon project in June, he was looking for a way to bring area Jews together.

“I thought this might be an easy, soft sell,” said Gitlin, stressing that HudsonJewish — which seeks to revive local Jewish life by pulling together disparate elements of the community — is not a religious entity but more of a cultural organization.

“We try to be secular,” said Raylie Dunkel, the group’s program director. “The salons take a look at what affects you as a Jew, but not in terms of being a religious person.”

Rather, she said, the topics are chosen to help participants explore “living in the community as a Jewish person.”

Some attendees do find their way to the synagogue, she said, adding that HudsonJewish promotes synagogue events, among others. “But our programs are ethnically based — without guilt.”

Some salons, she said, have focused on current events, asking questions such as “Is Israel always right?” or — in the aftermath of the Jersey City scandal involving both politicians and rabbis — “How do you feel about being Jewish and living in Jersey City?”

The forums also look at topics such as food, heritage, and — at the upcoming session on April 14 — Jewish humor.

Salons, which also include social elements and refreshments, meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the CASE Museum in downtown Jersey City. While most attendees have come from Jersey City and Hoboken, Gitlin noted that sessions have begun to attract people from the “upper reaches of [the county], toward Guttenberg.”

So far, Gitlin has moderated each forum himself, but he noted that he is hoping to cultivate future discussion leaders.

“This is not just sitting back and having a conversation,” said Gitlin, explaining that sessions are structured around particular questions posed at the beginning of each forum.

“It stays subject-oriented. The goal of any salon is to stay with the topic. We start with the first question and the second question tends to feed off of that.”

Keeping the discussion on track has not been hard, he said, joking that he is “very tough” in the face of digressions.

“People come because they want that kind of focused direction,” he said. “There are a lot of ideas to share about Judaism. What better way than this venue?”

Past sessions have tackled diverse topics, said Dunkel.

“We took a look at literature and also explored the issue of heritage,” she said, “asking questions like what have you carried forth from your ancestors into the 21st century and what is the deep background that follows you?”

One salon was devoted to the topic, “Are Jews liberal?” — concluding, said Dunkel, that they are not. In fact, she said, “we discovered that they’re very conservative.”

“The most important thing, the reason we started this, is that downtown Jersey City and Hoboken have had a huge influx of Jewish people who don’t identify with established religious institutions but who want to connect with other Jewish people,” she said, adding that one local woman, now on the HudsonJewish board, told her that she lived in the community for three years believing that she was the only Jew there.

“It’s a way for people to come together and talk about issues that affect them because they’re Jewish,” said Dunkel, adding that HudsonJewish makes that kind of differentiation between itself and religious organizations “to attract people without guilt and without an agenda. They come to have an intellectual discussion, to explore an issue and their thoughts about it.”

The program director went on to quote a local priest, who suggested that “the largest religious group in Jersey City is the unaffiliated.”

“That’s what we’re trying to tackle,” she said, “how to reach them and have them connect back to core.”

Gitlin said the salons have drawn some 20 to 30 people to each session.

“Jersey City is an enormous cross-cultural phenomenon,” said Dunkel, noting that the discussion groups attract “a very interesting mix of urban professionals, cutting through all age ranges, from 20-something to 80-something” and drawing people of different racial groups. For example, she noted, past groups have included both Hispanic and black Jews as well as “married, single, gay, lesbian — all kinds of Jews.”

Both Gitlin and Dunkel believe that the salons have been successful.

“They draw [attendees] into the new kind of Jewish environment that we’re building,” said Dunkel.

The April 14 salon will ask, “What’s so funny about the Jewish ‘funny bone’ and why do so many non-Jews find it amusing too?” For further information, e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

 
 

Still a problem

 

Community mourns passing of ‘pure soul’

On April 7, Jeffrey Ethan Silver — a much-loved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend — died at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital at the age of 47.

The son of noted community activists Drs. Sandra and Arnold Gold and of Dr. Howard and Jayne Silver, Jeffrey was described by his sister, Maggie Gold Seelig, as the family’s historian and “go-to guy.” He was also, she said, a man whose life was devoted to doing good.

image
He was ‘everybody’s big brother,’ said sister Jennifer Arnold of her brother Jeffrey Silver, who died on April 7.

At his funeral — which filled the sanctuary at Temple Emanu-El of Closter last Thursday — Rabbi David-Seth Kirshner noted that Jeffrey “chose as his final act in this life to donate his working organs to people that were in need of them.”

“What a gift,” he said. “What a beautiful Jewish act.”

“To know Jeffrey was to know that he always did the right thing,” said his mother, Sandra Gold. She cited the rabbi’s statement that, with Passover then approaching, Jeffrey, “with a pure soul, as one who never got puffed up,” might symbolically be compared to matzoh.

“He didn’t aspire to travel to distant places, eat fancy dinners out, or extravagance of any kind,” said Seelig. “He lived responsibly within his means, satisfied to have a meaningful job, work hard, and enrich the lives of his children and family. He knew and practiced the essence of what Mom calls the Dayenu Principle.”

“He was everybody’s big brother,” said sister Jennifer Arnold, noting that his siblings were only vaguely aware of the illnesses Jeffrey suffered, and overcame, as a child. “Whether it was delivering baskets for Rosh HaShanah to all the family friends or going to ShopRite at 11p.m. for a forgotten ingredient, Jeff was the man,” she said.

“I realize now that there were so many hurdles for you, but you always took them in stride,” she said in her eulogy, “so I never understood what courage and strength you had. A hearing aid, OK. The burning infusions of potassium, survived. The diabetes and the loss of chocolate cake, not so easy.… Dear brother, with each challenge you just grew stronger.”

Jeffrey had undergone brain tumor surgery as a toddler and thereafter faced a serious learning disability, his sister said, “but it did not faze him.” The family was told when he was 4 l/2 that he would never learn to read, but “two months later Jeffrey was reading and went on to successfully graduate from Syracuse University.”

“He never played the victim card,” Seelig agreed, adding that as the family prayed for him in his final days, they remembered “countless stories of Jeff’s going out of his way to help one of us — particularly his parents. Jeff took his responsibility as the eldest son and the big brother to heart and never let us or anyone down.”

As an example, she cited his willingness to help his grandfather Max after a stroke, leaving work during lunch hour to eat with him, “even though Grandpa couldn’t speak a single word.”

Jeffrey, who lived in Rivervale, was an employee at Englewood Hospital.

In a eulogy written by his mother and delivered by Seelig, Sandra Gold acknowledged that “it does take a village” to raise a child and thanked “all of you who made opportunities for Jeffrey to use his strengths and who helped him achieve his goals.”

“Thank you for believing in him,” she said. “He absolutely never let us down.”

Jeffrey is survived by his parents; by his wife, Dara Klein Silver, and children David and Lilliana; and by his siblings, Stephen S. Silver and Michele, Jennifer Arnold and Coby Mor, Amelia Gold Benson and Dr. Brian, and Maggie Gold Seelig and Jonathan. He was also the beloved “Uncle Bear” of many nieces and nephews.

A memorial fund has been established in his name. Contributions may be made to the Jeffrey Silver Memorial Fund at the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.

 
 

Israeli journalist to speak about the age of ‘Obibi’

Lois GoldrichLocal
Published: 16 April 2010

Israelis are always kvetching, says journalist Herb Keinon.

Even the rain (“Thank God we had a good winter,” he said) is a matter of contention, with some arguing that while it undoubtedly fell, “it didn’t fall in the right places.”

Still, said Keinon — a longtime writer for The Jerusalem Post — while his fellow countrymen tend to “look for a cloud in the silver lining,” there is good reason for concern right now as regards U.S.-Israeli relations.

“I’m not an alarmist,” said Keinon, who will speak at both the Jewish Community Center of Paramus and Teaneck’s Cong. Rinat Yisrael on April 18. “The relationship between the United States and Israel is multi-faceted; there’s a huge fabric to it. But that being said, there are serious disagreements.”

Herb Keinon

Keinon — a diplomatic correspondent who spent 10 years covering the travels of Israeli prime ministers, beginning with Ehud Barak — said he has never seen the kind of ill feeling that now exists between the governments of the two nations.

“I don’t remember anything like this,” he said. “I don’t remember this level of tension.”

He attributed the problem to differing mindsets.

“So much of what Israel does and what the public expects of the government” is a result of what happened between 2000 and 2005 during the height of the second intifada, he said. “There was a fundamental change of perception.” While many Israelis in the early 1990s had embraced the Oslo accords, “those horrible five years flipped [the Israeli position] on its head.”

Concluding that “that paradigm didn’t work and isn’t going to work, [Israelis] went through a huge transformation,” said Keinon. “Everybody was bitten. Everybody was feeling the insecurity of putting a kid on the bus and wondering if he would get back. It’s not theoretical. Buses were blowing up. It transformed the country’s mindset.”

Israel was “mugged by reality,” he said.

Illustrating the nation’s change of heart, he pointed to the 1992 elections in which Meretz and Labor, which endorsed the concept of land for peace, won 56 seats. In 2009, he said, they won only 16.

The problem, he said, is that the new administration in Washington has not freed itself from the Oslo paradigm.

“They still want to go down that road,” he said. “That’s the root of the problem,” he added, not the settlements in east Jerusalem. “There are serious conceptual differences between Israel and the United States.”

While the United States is hopeful that the proximity talks will lead to direct talks and then to peace, “Israelis are extremely skeptical. It’s done this before. What changed?”

“Every [American] administration thinks it will rediscover the wheel,” said Keinon. “President Obama has to do something, but there are only a finite number of possibilities, so he will try to do this again.”

Keinon noted that while neither Obama nor Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was forthcoming about what occurred at their recent meeting, the fact that no photos were taken or statements put out are important indicators.

“The atmospherics were very bad,” he said. “That’s all I see. It’s also what the Arabs are seeing.”

He said people would inevitably compare that with what he expected to be a warm reception for Jordanian King Abdullah II in Washington on Monday.

“It adds insult to injury and it’s the second time it happened,” he said, noting that Netanyahu’s last visit also did not result in a press conference.

“There’s a certain pattern,” he said. “It’s not all about settlements. There are deeper issues [such as] whether or not [Israelis and Palestinians] can quickly come to an agreement, and whether the priority should be Israel or Iran.”

Keinon noted the unusual speed with which Vice President Joseph Biden’s affirmations of friendship for Israel degenerated into Hillary Clinton’s “dressing-down” of that nation shortly afterwards.

While the timing of the east Jerusalem settlement announcement, during the vice president’s visit, was “incredibly stupid,” he said, most likely someone in Washington “made a decision that we can take advantage of this situation for our own purposes.”

Still, said Keinon, while the situation is undoubtedly serious, “it’s not something Israel can’t deal with. We have a tendency to go nuts and think every crisis is end of the world. But there’s no reason to panic. We have incredible abilities and control our own destiny.”

On a lighter note, Keinon spoke about his book, “Lone Soldiers: Israel’s Defenders from Around the World” (Devora Publishing, 2009), which “deals with good things, something positive.”

“Kids come from abroad to serve with the Israeli army,” he said, whether because of idealism or the search for adventure. “It’s a reaffirmation of Zionism. Many leave comfortable surroundings.”

According to the author, such youngsters are coming in higher numbers, as many as 3,000 a year from all over the world, with about 500 from the United States.

“The whole phenomenon is gaining steam,” he said, noting that some of the newcomers have Israeli parents, demonstrating that even though their parents left the country, they never lost the connection.

Originally from Denver, Keinon has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. He has lived in Israel for 26 years.

His talk in Paramus, at noon, will be on “The Obibi Era: American-Israeli Relations in the Age of Obama and Netanyahu.” For information, call (201) 262-7691.

His presentation in Teaneck, called “Between a Rocket and a Hard Place: How Terror Has Changed Israel, Its Politics, the Zionist Dream, and the Path to Peace,” will take place at 8 p.m. For information, call (201) 837-2795.

 
 

NCJW goes to Washington

Ellen Jacobs will long remember the day President Barack Obama signed the health-care bill.

The Demarest resident — a national board member of the National Council of Jewish Women and a former president of the Bergen County section — was in Washington that day together with 25 other local women “to speak directly with our elected officials concerning issues of importance to women, children, and families, and to urge them to implement public policy that reflects our progressive ideals.”

The group was in D.C. for NCJW’s Washington Institute, the organization’s “premier public policy event,” said Jacobs, adding that with 400 members in attendance, “the energy was palpable. What a unique opportunity to speak with a collective voice, to share knowledge, and to plan for the future.”

At the NCJW national policy conference in March, Carole Benson of Englewood — representing the NCJW Bergen County Section — presented a grant of $2,500 to the Center for Women’s Justice in Israel. From left are Benson, vice president of the section, and Susan C. Levine, NCJW national board member and co-chair of the Israel Granting Program.

At the meeting, held late last month, the Bergen County section presented a $2,500 check to the Israel Center for Justice, “an empowerment program for at-risk women.”

“NCJW’s work in Israel directly mirrors the organization’s efforts to create progressive social change in the U.S,” said Jacobs, noting that the grant will help fund the Israeli group’s public interest litigation program.

“By filing strategic lawsuits, advocating creative approaches to Jewish law, and engaging media and policy-makers, the center promotes systemic solutions to the complex religious dilemmas that challenge the status of Jewish women,” she said.

According to the former section leader, NCJW has a long history of supporting Israeli ventures through its Israel Granting Program. Following decades of involvement in programs like the Research Institute for Innovation in Education at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Women & Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University, the group entered a partnership three years ago with US/Israel Women to Women.

“NCJW members contribute to these efforts through grassroots networks, online campaigns, mission trips, and generous philanthropy,” said Jacobs, pointing out that grants are allocated in two categories: literacy programs designated for at-risk populations and development and empowerment programs for at-risk women.

This year’s Washington Institute presented “an opportunity for a close-up view of the operations and activities of various branches of the federal government, particularly as they relate to NCJW’s key issues,” she said, pointing out that the conclave explored four key issues: equal pay for women, paid sick days, and repeal of the global gag rule on abortion education and of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Among the speakers was Lilly Ledbetter, whose efforts on behalf of equal pay for women resulted in passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first bill signed into law by President Obama after his inauguration.

The final presentation of the event, said Jacobs, was the introduction of NCJW’s new campaign, “Higher Ground,” which works to address the issue of domestic violence. “It’s grounded in the knowledge that economic security is critical to women’s safety,” she said.

Jacobs pointed out that among other causes, the local NCJW group has been actively involved in environmental issues. On April 20, the Bergen County section sponsored an Earth Day panel discussion in Teaneck entitled “From Generation to Generation — Creating an Environmental Legacy.” Among the panelists were former Teaneck Mayor Jacqueline Kates, now community relations coordinator for Holy Name Medical Center, and the Rev. Fletcher Harper, executive director of GreenFaith.

Shul program builds Jewish-Muslim ties

image
From left, Rabbi Steven Sirbu, Elijah Muhammad, Imam Saeed Qureshi, and Andrea Winters stand in front of Temple Emeth in Teaneck.

In 2007, the Union for Reform Judaism urged its congregations to embrace a broader vision of interreligious understanding, says Rabbi Steven Sirbu, religious leader of Teaneck’s Temple Emeth.

In a major initiative launched at URJ’s biennial convention, Rabbi Eric Yoffie, the organization’s president, declared that “Jews are not well-educated about Islam, and Muslims are not well-educated about Judaism. In our increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, we can ill afford to segregate ourselves within our mosques and synagogues.”

Heeding the call for synagogues to reach out to their Muslim counterparts, in 2008 Sirbu’s congregation began a dialogue with a mosque in Teaneck, Masjid Darul Islah, using a curriculum written and published by URJ and the Islamic Society of North America. Working from a text entitled “Children of Abraham: Jews and Muslims in Conversation,” the Muslim-Jewish Dialogue Committees of Temple Emeth and Masjid Darul Islah began a series of monthly meetings.

With 12 members from each institution, the group — meeting two hours on a Sunday, sometimes at one of the houses of worship and sometimes at members’ homes — tackled “segments organized from low-tension to high-tension topics,” said Leonia resident Andrea Winters, a member of Temple Emeth and co-coordinator with mosque member Elijah Muhammad of the dialogue team.

“As we got to build trust, we could embark on more difficult terrain,” she said, citing hot-button issues such as the status of Jerusalem and the Israel-Palestinian conflict. As time went on, she said, “more and more stories were shared about individual personal experiences [like] anti-Semitism and Islamaphobia.”

Winters said that as the scheduled curricular meetings were coming to an end in December, “we discovered that we were only just beginning to talk.”

As a result, the group — with members from Leonia, Teaneck, Tenafly, Fort Lee, and Paterson — opted to continue through May. Since January, she said, “we have been engaged in topics of our own choosing, such as gender.”

Up to this point, she said, she and Muhammad have served as “co-chairs, co-coordinators, and process facilitators.” The additional sessions, however, have had rotating discussion leaders.

The dialogue team began with sessions designed to “introduce us to each other and to basics such as the Torah and the Koran and issues of charity in both faiths,” said Winters.

“The goal is to listen to each other, not to change minds,” she added, mentioning an upcoming dialogue on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She noted that there had been some tension in an earlier discussion on the topic, particularly as regarded “the perception of Jews as oppressors. [The Jews] were defensive about others seeing them that way,” she said.

Another discussion involved the immigration experiences of both groups, a topic that brought the members closer, she said.

Sirbu pointed out that the clergy of the two religious institutions have fully endorsed the project but decided not to sit in on the meetings from month to month.

“We felt it would be a better process if we took a step back,” he said. He noted as well that while a dialogue could succeed only in a small and closed environment, his congregation has sought various ways to share the committee’s achievements.

In the fall of 2008, for example, “Our annual Joshua Trachtenberg Memorial Lecture was on ‘Jerusalem: Holy City in Judaism and Islam,’ presented by Rabbi Phil Lieberman, an expert in Jewish law,” said Sirbu. All members of the mosque were invited to attend the event, held during a Shabbat service, “and there was a nice turnout. We were very encouraged and heartened.”

Noting that he enjoys cordial relations with the mosque’s imam, Saeed Qureshi, Sirbu added that last Chanukah he invited all dialogue members to the synagogue to lead a discussion for the entire Temple Emeth community on what they had accomplished.

The rabbi pointed out that the dialogue members from Temple Emeth had been appointed by the synagogue leadership “because we thought they would be good representatives” of the congregation. He did not know how their Muslim counterparts were chosen.

At the Chanukah session, “we had a great turnout and very rich discussion. The congregation didn’t know what was being accomplished. [Now] they had a sense of the worth of this project.”

“We talked to the congregation about what we learned from each other,” said Winters. But even more, “we were joking around [and] the congregation observed our teasing and playfulness,” she said.

“We’re looking for more ways to share the dialogue process and its goals with the entire temple-mosque community and whole community,” said Sirbu. “It opens our eyes to the struggles of peoples of different faiths, makes us aware of our own prejudices, and promotes understanding.”

One such effort will take place on Sunday, April 25, when Temple Emeth co-hosts “Under the Veil,” an interactive theatrical performance.

According to Winters, last spring one of the dialogue members saw the presentation at a meeting of the Ethical Culture Society.

“He loved it. So I brought it to Pace [University, where she teaches] and the students loved it as well.”

The presentation is intended to challenge audience members to think in ways they haven’t thought before, she said, adding that the program is free and open to the whole community. It is the dialogue project’s first joint initiative.

Performed by the TE’A Project (Theater, Engagement and Action), the show is based on interviews conducted by the actors in the aftermath of Sept. 11 and is intermixed with facilitated dialogue between the actors and the audience.

To broaden the range of those involved in the program, it is being co-sponsored not just by the dialogue committees of the two houses of worship but by their youth groups as well.

“The performance is intended for people of all ages,” said Sirbu, noting that while it was not appropriate for the youth to be involved in the dialogue itself, “it will get them thinking about it.” The young people will also help with refreshments.

The rabbi was pleased about the “enthusiasm” the dialogue team brought back to the congregation. “They brought back the understanding that coexistence depends on relationships. They don’t meet as Jews and Muslims but as a group of 24 people who know and like one another and enjoy the chance to share ideas.”

“Under the Veil” will be presented at Temple Emeth from 2:30 to 4 p.m., April 25. For further information, call (201) 833-1322.
