08/26/10 SHAYS: “Himes independent claim fails the laugh test”

E-Updates from the Dan Debicella for Congress Campaign August 26th, 2010
Debicella for Congress

SHAYS: “Himes independent claim fails the laugh test”

An article in today’s CT Mirror notes that as, “the CT-4 Race is intensifying and will be closely watched...The Democrat who ousted Former Congressman Chris Shays two years ago, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, is adopting his vanquished predecessor's sales pitch, proclaiming himself as New England's new maverick in Congress.” – Deirdre Shesgreen, CT Mirror, Himes tries to use Shays' old playbook, 8/25/10.

BUT CHRIS SHAYS DISAGREES AND CALLS HIMES OUT…

“This doesn't even meet the laugh test [voting with his party 94% of the time]…that is not independence.” – Chris Shays, via Deirdre Shesgreen, CT Mirror, Himes tries to use Shays' old playbook, 8/25/10.

WHILE TOP PUNDITS SAY…

“This election will come down to Chris Shays' [who supports Debicella] old voters…And a key question is whether those voters like the course Democrats are taking or whether they are wary of one party-control in Washington,”David Wasserman, Cook Political Report, via Deirdre Shesgreen, CT Mirror, Himes tries to use Shays' old playbook, 8/25/10.

“This election cannot be won by emphasizing one's partisanship [as Himes has]…The political middle is where all the action is… nearly 40 percent of the 4th District's voters are unaffiliated, the largest bloc.” –Gary Rose, Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, via Deirdre Shesgreen, CT Mirror, Himes tries to use Shays' old playbook, 8/25/10.

DEBICELLA GAINING STEAM AND NATIONAL ATTENTION…

“The noise level in this race has increased...generating more buzz at the national party committees… I do think it's closer than a lot of people realize...This is one of those next-tier races that could turn a big Republican year into a gigantic Republican year,” –David Wasserman, via Deirdre Shesgreen, CT Mirror, Himes tries to use Shays' old playbook, 8/25/10.

“The Cook Report currently has the seat listed as likely to stay in Democratic hands, but the report's Wasserman said it will probably move into a more competitive category in the coming weeks,” Deirdre Shesgreen, CT Mirror, Himes tries to use Shays' old playbook, 8/25/10.

08/26/10 Rabbi Mitch's Weekly Teaching

Weekly Teaching
By Rabbi Mitchell M. Hurvitz
rabbimitch@templesholom.com

Please join us this Shabbat for a joint Simchat Bat to celebrate the naming of Daphna Fradkin and Hannah Konigsberg.

Saturday, August 28th
services begin at 9:30 am,
Simchat Bat at approximately 10:15 am.
Stay after for a community lunch in their honor.


Shabbat Parashat Ki Tavo
August 27, 2010

Teaching by Rabbi Mitch

rabbimitch@templesholom.com

When we celebrate our children being formally entered into our Jewish Covenant with God, (B'rit Milah for boys and Simchat Bat for girls), we mark the occasion with the public announcement of our child's official Hebrew name.


It is the traditional custom to not publically share the chosen Hebrew name until the ceremony, and this adds to the excited anticipation.

The Talmud teaches that the name we select will have influence on the child for the rest of their life. The Ashkenazi (European descent) custom is to name after a loved one who has passed, and the Sephardic (Spanish/non-European descent) custom is to name after a living relative. In both cases the name chosen is suppose to be for someone who possesses great spiritual and character attributes that one would want for their own child.


The Jewish mystics (kabbalists) of old believed that the etymology of a name also will influence the child's entire life. For example, a parent who names their child Ari-el (Lion of God) is interested in the perceived attributes of strength and holiness. Naming for a Biblical or rabbinic hero of old, also is hoping for the spiritual connection to be made from the past to the present and future.


The kabbalists also believed that the Hebrew letters of a specific name, which possessed numerical values, could also bequeath certain attributes. A common example is the gematria (Hebrew numerical equivalent) of the name Elisheva. The numerical value for Elisheva is equal to the numerical value of the phrase: "yemei simcha", which translates to mean "days of happiness". The name Elisheva has been a parental prayer for a long life of happiness for their beloved child.


When we provide our children their Hebrew names we are hoping that the soul of our child will become inextricably linked with the one(s) he or she is named for. The Hebrew word for "name" is "Shem". The Hebrew word for soul (neshama) possesses the two Hebrew consonants, shin and mem, that makes for the Hebrew Shem. Thus the kabbalists saw an additional link between a "name" and a soul.


While many grandparents eagerly wish to know the names of their new grandchildren, the custom is to wait and whisper the name first in their ears at a public ceremony. They then have the joy to announce the name publically.


When this custom is followed, grandparents who often have the closest living connection to the one who the name is honoring often become overwhelmed in their own emotional joy and this further enhances the simcha.


When Cantor Asa and Sara, and Ezra and Robyn share with us the public naming of their respective children, we are all privileged to be present in this linkage to the heavens, and to our eternal Covenant with God.


May God bless the Fradkin and Konigsberg families and may Daphna and Hannah both be granted happiness, health, and bequeathed beautiful spiritual attributes of their respective namesakes.

Shabbat Shalom,


Rabbi Mitch

STRANGERS AT THE FEAST: A NOVEL
Strangers at the Feast
A Perrot Library & Just Books Event
90 Sound Beach Avenue, Old Greenwich
Author Talk & Book Signing; www.perrotlibrary.org

Just Books and the Perrot Library are pleased to welcome Jennifer Vanderbes as she introduces her second novel Strangers at the Feast (Scribner, August 3, 2010; $26.00). This book sets it sights on an America tradition - Thanksgiving dinner - and how a neurotic family tries its best to make it through. In her gripping new book, Jennifer Vanderbes masterfully lays bare the fraught lives of this complex cast of characters and the lengths to which they will go to protect their families. Strangers at the Feast is at once a heartbreaking portrait of a family struggling to find happiness and an exploration of the hidden costs of the American dream. Published to international acclaim, Jennifer Vanderbes' first book, Easter Island, was "best book of 2003" by the Washington Post and Christian Science Monitor and was hailed as "one of those rare novels that appeals equally to heart, mind, and soul," by the San Francisco Chronicle. In her second novel, this powerful writer reaches new heights of storytelling. This page-turner wrestles with the most important issues of our time-race, class, and above all else, family. Strangers at the Feast will leave readers haunted and deeply affected. Jennifer Vanderbes received her B.A. in English Literature from Yale and her M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the Iowa Writer's Workshop. Her numerous awards and fellowships include a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Cullman Fellowship at the New York Public Library.

RIGHT SIZING YOUR HOME: HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOUSE FIT YOUR LIFESTYLE

Right Sizing
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Book Signing; Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome
Gale Steves, former editor of Home magazine, and an established authority on everything to do with the home, as she introduces her newest book, Right-Sizing Your Home: How to Make Your House Fit Your Lifestyle (Northwest Arm Press, $21.95). Gale Steves shows how to make sense of those spaces rarely used and no longer suited to the way we live today. Unlike most home design books, each chapter in this beautifully illustrated book centers on a function in the home--such as bathing, relaxing, or eating--and helps readers assess their individual style and approach to each. Steves takes them through the entire process of Right-Sizing: providing worksheets to examine the uses and requirements of space, dimension guides to illustrate different spatial arrangements within rooms, the right way to measure, how to create a floor plan, and even a clever use for old grocery bags. Additionally, there are tons of inspiring ideas, hundreds of products that can help readers Right-Size on any budget, and a comprehensive list of resources making it easy to find everything featured in the book--everything needed "to make your house fit your lifestyle." The National Association of Home Builders has recognized Steves' outstanding contribution to the building and remodeling field with a Certificate of Merit. She is listed in Who's Who of American Women and was most recently inducted into the YWCA's Academy of Women Achievers. Steves' consumer magazine experience includes key editorial positions at Ladies Home Journal, American Home, and Woman's Day, among others. She is also the author of several books, including Weekend Cooking and Home Magazine's Best Little Houses.

LAUNCH PARTY @ Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Launch Party; Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome award-winning teen and tween author Sarah Darer Littman, a Greenwich resident, as she introduces her third novel for teens Life, After (Scholastic Press; $17.99). After a terrorist attack kills Dani's aunt and unborn cousin, life in Argentina - private school, a boyfriend, a loving family - crumbles quickly. In order to escape a country that is sinking under their feet, Dani and her family move to the United States. It's supposed to be a fresh start, but when you're living in a cramped apartment and going to high school where all the classes are in another language, and not everyone is friendly, life in America is not all it's cracked up to be. Dani misses her old friends, her life, "Before." But then Dani meets a boy named Jon, who isn't like all the other students. Through him, she becomes friends with Jessica, one of the popular girls, who is harboring a secret of her own. And then there's Brian, the boy who makes Dani's pulse race. In her new life, the one "After," Dani learns how to heal and forgive. She finds the courage to say goodbye and allows herself to love and be loved again. Sarah Darer Littman's widely praised first novel for middle grade readers, Confessions of a Closet Catholic, won the 2006 Sydney Taylor Book Award. She is also the author of Purge. Sarah lives in Connecticut with her two children.

A BITTER CUP OF COFFEE: HOW MLB AND THE PLAYERS ASSOCIATION THREW 874 RETIREES A CURVE
A Bitter Cup of Coffee
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome journalist and author Douglas Gladstone as he introduces his first book A Bitter Cup of Coffee: How MLB and the Players Association Threw 874 Retirees a Curve (Word Association, $18). This painstakingly researched book by Gladstone examines the plight of 874 Major League Baseball players who played between 1947 and 1979, all with brief trials in the majors, careers figuratively just long enough to drink a cup of coffee. Since 1980, Major League Baseball players have needed one day of service credit for health benefits and 43 days of service credit to be eligible for a retirement allowance, but those former ballplayers who played during the 1947-1979 seasons were not included retroactively in the amended vesting requirement, and so receive no pensions for the time they gave to our national pastime. These men, the author suggests, have gulped bitter cups of coffee. In his careful examination of this issue, which includes many interviews with former players and some poignant stories of their plight, Gladstone asks his readers to examine our national relationship to sports and its heroes, as well as our relationships with those who precede us in the game of life. A lifelong baseball fan, Douglas Gladstone is a journalist by training, whose published articles have appeared in the Chicago Sun Times, Baseball Digest and the San Diego Jewish World, among others.

FERRAN: THE INSIDE STORY OF EL BULLI AND
THE MAN WHO REINVENTED FOOD

Ferran
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Book Signing; Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is thrilled to welcome Colman Andrews, a Greenwich resident and acclaimed cookbook author and co-founder and former editor-in-chief of Saveur, as he introduces his latest novel, Ferran: The Inside Story of El Bulli and the Man Who Reinvented Food (Gotham, October 5, 2010; $28). No other chef in history has been interviewed, written about, and parsed more than Ferran Adrià. And perhaps no other chef has given of his philosophy, recipes and revolutionary techniques as freely. Award-winning food writer Coleman Andrews was given two years of unrestricted access to Adrià's El Bulli kitchen, dining room, Barcelona workshop, family friends and associates. The result is a defining and revealing portrait of the chef in a historical and culinary context that addresses both his genius and the salient criticisms leveled against him. FERRAN demystifies, exalts, and thoroughly examines the man known as "the greatest chef in the world." The El Bulli restaurant is located in the Catalan coastal hamlet of Cala Montjoi, near Spain's boarder with France. Each year, 8,000 lucky dinners from around the world are able to eat at the restaurant - another 1 million are turned away from the 30-course revolutionary experience. Dinner at the restaurant, with its year-plus wait list, is arguably the toughest reservation in the world to score. Coleman Andrews was the cofounder and a former editor in chief of Saveur, and is the author of four acclaimed cookbooks, including Catalan Cuisine, which introduced the now-trendy cooking of Catalonia, Ferran Adrià's home region, to American food-lovers. The recipient of numerous honors (including six James Beard Foundation awards), he was most recently the restaurant columnist for Gourmet. He divides his time between New York City and Connecticut.
