    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    CHJ OPEN HOUSE BRUNCH AND FIRST DAY OF SUNDAY SCHOOL FEATURES
    ADULT ED PROGRAM ON Dorothy Parker

    Bagels and Lox and good company are part of the allure of the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism’s annual Open House brunch and first day of Sunday School. The back-from-summer event on September 11 at Bedford Middle School, 88 North Avenue, Westport, features an introduction to the people, school, and adult education programs of the Congregation. The public is invited free of charge.
    “This is a great opportunity to learn about the Congregation, Humanistic Judaism, our Sunday School and adult education programs,” says Rachel Albanese of Wilton, chair of membership. “Guests will feel welcome in our community.” She will be on hand to talk to new and prospective members. Lisa Sullivan, a Norwalk resident and former Sunday School committee member, and her daughter, Elise, are long-time members who discovered CHJ through the Open House.
    Dana Preis of Easton, a past-president of CHJ, hopes those seeking a Jewish community will "come and check us out. Our approach is refreshing. CHJ's focus on humanistic values and appreciation for Jewish culture makes us an important and welcoming presence in the community."
    Sunday School begins promptly at 9:30 am. All children are invited to attend their age- appropriate class at no charge. Parents may remain with their children until they are comfortable.
    Adult Ed will present a slideshow talk by David Shafer about the life of Dorothy Parker (maiden name was Rothschild, 1893-1967 ) Parker was famous in the 1930s for play reviews, short poetry, and general wittiness She was a model of a humanist who strove for social justice, and for her efforts was blacklisted in Hollywood and forced to appear before Joe McCarthy. The program will be followed by a presentation of her very short two-person funny play, Here We Are.
    The CHJ Sunday School provides a contemporary Jewish education for children in kindergarten through Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Children learn about Jewish holidays, history, literature, and traditions of the Jewish people in a warm, participatory environment. Hebrew, music, art, dance, and crafts enrich the curriculum. Jewish and Humanistic values and their relation to interpersonal, social and environmental issues are explored in all areas of the curriculum. Small class size fosters involvement and learning.
    In addition to Sunday School, the Congregation has a full calendar of activities for adults including Jewish holiday celebrations, a wide array of weekend evening and Sunday morning programs, discussion groups, and a book group. Members hail from almost every town in Fairfield County.
    Jewish and Interfaith families interested in learning about the Congregation are invited to attend this Open House. Programs conclude at 11:45 AM. For additional information, and to let the Congregation know to expect you, please call (203) 293-8867 or email info@humanisticjews.org.

    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world

  • | 6:00pm - 7:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, Hudson Chorale Auditions
    - Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest mixed voice chorus, is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) to join them for an exciting 2016-2017 season that will appeal to choral singers of a wide range of musical preferences. Singer-friendly auditions will begin on Monday, September 12, 2016, by appointment, prior to the first rehearsal. Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7:30 - 10:00 p.m. at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church, 400 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville, NY.

    The first concert program, which will take place on Friday, January 27 and Sunday, January 29, 2017, is entitled Variations on a Text. The program will include diverse and contrasting settings of the Ave Maria, the Te Deum, and Sicut Cervus in Latin and English, plus more. The concert, with organ or piano accompaniment, will take plac at the Chapel at Maryknoll in Ossining, NY.

    The second concert program of the season, entitled Requiem, will be presented on Friday, June 2 and Sunday, June 4, 2017. It features Mozart’s Requiem (with full orchestra and soloists), along with a collection of pieces that illustrate the different ways in which composers have used the music to express the emotions associated with death, loss and mourning - each in their own unique way. The additional works include Henry Purcell’s Funeral Music for Queen Mary, along with other pieces by Johannes Brahms, Antonio Lotti, and American-born William Schuman, as well as a selection of Negro Spirituals. The concert will be performed in the wonderful acoustics of the church of St. John the Evangelist in White Plains, NY.

    Maestro Ira Spaulding, the Chorale’s Music Director, is a choral conductor, singer and choral master class instructor whose career spans 36 years of performance in more than 60 countries. He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer and conductor. The chorus’ Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord.

  • | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Taconic Opera Gala
    - Great food, gorgeous arias about children, and a tribute to honorees for their contributions to the arts in their communities.

    Taconic Opera, now in its 19th season and past recipient of the Arts Organization of the Year Award in Westchester County, will hold its annual creative and highly entertaining fundraiser on Thursday, September 15, 2016, at 7:00 pm at the C.V. Rich Mansion, 305 Ridgeway, White Plains, NY. The Gala’s theme, Opera Has a Baby, will feature visiting artists who will perform famous operatic arias about young children while guests dine on a sumptuous meal in peaceful serenity - minus the noise, mess and spills of young children! This event is an upbeat and unique way to honor three persons who have contributed to the arts and to their communities: Jun Nakabayashi, Georgianna Mitchell and Darrell Babboni. All Gala proceeds support Taconic Opera’s diverse and exciting 2016-2017 season of events, details of which can be found on the company’s website.

    Jun Nakabayashi, Taconic Opera’s Music Director and Conductor for 16 of its 19 seasons and has not only been an invaluable asset and a main contributor to the company’s longevity. He also serves on the faculty of the acclaimed Hoff-Barthelson Music School in Scarsdale where he conducts the Festival Orchestra of young musicians and gives classes in conducting. The orchestra was selected by the New York Philharmonic for a unique partnership called the Philharmonic Academy, Jr., whose goal is to help prepare the next generation of orchestra players.

    Georgianna (Gem) Mitchell has had extensive not-for-profit board and volunteer experience over the last twenty years. With her background in business management, she joined the Taconic Opera Board in 2009 to contribute to the continued success of the company and has also been a generous supporter of the arts in general.

    Darrell Babboni is the president of one of the largest construction and home maintenance companies in Westchester County, HoneyDoMen. A self-made entrepreneur, he is being honored not only for his longstanding support of Taconic Opera but also for his philanthropy in support of several organizations and services in his community that help the most vulnerable.

Each meeting consists of two slowly paced easy walks, prefaced by an exercise for increasing awareness through the senses. Julie Woodward one of Teatown’s Wildflower Island Guides, will lead these walks to help people find some moments of boundless space and time, where, as the great environmentalist John Muir once wrote, “the galling harness of civilization drops off” and “every leaf seems to speak.” Please dress for the weather, as we will experience the forest environment as it is offered to us. Adults Only. Members Free, Non-members $7. Programs require pre-registration. To register, call 914-762-2912 x 110.
