CHRISTMAS AT THE MERCY HOME

I hope everyone had) a nice Thanksgiving!

Now THAT Thanksgiving is behind us, we need to start thinking about staffing the Mercy Home for Christmas. For those of you not familiar with this tradition, our Jewish community staffs the mercy home (women’s domestic violence shelter) from 2 PM Christmas Eve through 5 PM Christmas Day to give the staff time with their families. Of course they are on call if an emergency comes up but typically it is just manning the phones, helping kids open presents, helping them prepare a nice Christmas dinner, and letting people in and out to take a cigarette break. It is fairly easy and a good deed that we do to let the staff have a day off. If you are new and want a training, we can do that to make sure you are familiar with the alarm system, key system, etc.

Here are the shifts:

  • 12/24, 2-5pm: JERRY AND NADYNE WEISSMAN CLAIMED THIS ONE
  • 12/24, 5-8pm:
  • 12/24, 8-11pm: If we can’t fill this one we can just set the alarm at 8 PM and go home. That is what we did last year.
  • 12/25, 8-11am: This person will open up with a key and alarm code which they will get ahead of time.
  • 12/25, 11am-2pm:
  • 12/25, 2-5pm:

If anyone is available to help, please text or call wendy at (406) 868-5712 or email wendy@weissman.com.

I will need to get a list of volunteers to the mercy home ahead of time and arrange any training that anyone may need.

Thank you and happy Holidays!

Wendy

CONDOLENCES TO WENDY WEISSMAN AND FAMILY

Maurice Fluegel Levie, of Baltimore, Maryland, passed away peacefully in his sleep in the wee hours of Monday, November 14th, 2022. He was less than one month shy of 105 years old.

Maurice had a voracious appetite for words, text, languages, gadgets of all kinds, and desserts. He subscribed to many newspapers and magazines and thoughtfully clipped articles to send to family and friends he knew would be interested in the topics. He was a veteran who served in India during WWII, a trustworthy stockbroker for most of his career, and a masterful chess player, besting all comers as recently as this summer. He is survived by his beloved wife, Ruth Levie (nee Maleson), with whom he celebrated an 80th wedding anniversary in September. In addition, he is survived by his children, Carolyn Levie Handler, Eleanor Levie (Carl Harrington), Leonard (Bozena) Levie, and Benjamin (Karyn) Levie; he was predeceased by his loving son, James Fluegel Levie. Maurice was a family patriarch dear to niece Judy Tarses Sherr and nephew Mark Tarses, a grandfather to six, great-grandfather to thirteen, and great-great-grandfather to a recent newborn.

A private funeral will be held on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow at Har Sinai Cemetery, Garrison Forest Road. No flowers, please, but contributions in his memory may be sent to Har Sinai Oheb Shalom Congregation, as Maurice was a member of Har Sinai for almost his whole life, active in the Brotherhood, an usher, a bar mitzvah at 75, and up to a few years ago a regular attendee of Shabbat services and Bible Study.

The Aitz Chaim community extends sincere condolences to Maurice’s family and friends, most especially his daughter Carolyn Levie Handler and granddaughter Wendy Weissman. May his memory be for a blessing.

FROM THE MONTANA JEWISH PROJECT, HELENA

  • WHERE? From THE Montana Jewish Project, HELENA
  • WHEN? Sunday, 10/30/2022, at 2:00PM.
  • WHAT? Dr. Ari Laskin, a documentary film maker, will lead a discussion about his current work called Memorial’s Undoing. His project is about Holocaust memorials, particularly Babyn Yar, and he raises some interesting questions on which he would like feedback.
  1. what are the underlying meanings of memorials?
  2. Do memorials draw too bright a line between the past and present?
  3. Are there ways to make memorials that don’t let us “off the hook”, since the trauma of these massacres continues (and the conditions that cause them are still occuring)

This will be our first speaker inside our building, but we’re also sharing it on Zoom; it just requires advanced registration. If this seems like something that would interest you or that the Aitz Chaim community would enjoy, please spread the word.
