Dallas Doings — March 2008

Lili Feingold presentation set for March 16
Paul H. Lewis tells the TJP that Lili Feingold, who was unable to keep her December commitment, because of an electronics failure, to speak to JWV has been booked for a return engagement on Sunday, March 16 at the JCC at 9:30 a.m. She talked to JWV members and their Ladies’ Auxiliary on June 27, 2004 when she showed ink and watercolor drawings done by her father, à la Bill Mauldin in style.
Lili will show a recording of the historic flight over Auschwitz by the Israeli Air Force in 2004. Among those attending the ceremony on the ground were Al Weber, who bombed one of the Auschwitz buildings in 1944, and Yitzhak Cohen, who was in Auschwitz at the time of the bombing. Cohen is a Holocaust survivor who lives in Israel.
Bernie Dworkin and Sig Liberman recommended Lili.
As usual, a lox and bagel breakfast will be served.

BBYO dedicates Phase 1 of its ‘Bricks for BBYO’ program
The Dallas-area B’nai B’rith Youth Organization (BBYO) will culminate Phase 1 of its “Bricks for BBYO” program on Sunday, March 9, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center of Dallas, located at 7900 Northaven Road.
The program will help support Dallas-area BBYO’s annual budget and help continue to provide the quality programming and leadership development that has been a tradition for many years.
“Bricks for BBYO” is an opportunity for parents, alumni, advisors, current members and corporate sponsors to purchase a personally engraved brick that will be mounted on the walls outside the BBYO office area. Sherrie Stalarow, BBYO senior executive regional director, said that “these bricks will serve as a permanent testament to what BBYO has meant to the generations of teens who were and are members of BBYO in addition to the organization’s impact on the entire Dallas area Jewish community.”
Phase 1 raised over $10,000. Alissa Goodman, Dallas area BBYO adult board chair, said that “support for the program has been amazing” and that “Phase 2 is expected to exceed Phase 1’s results in a relatively short amount of time.”
The event will also include recognition of staff member Sharon Baron, who is retiring after 29 years of service. Stalarow added that “Sharon, who was the rock of the organization here in Dallas, will be greatly missed by both the professional staff and the kids.”
Stalarow asks that friends of BBYO who would like to contribute to Phase 2 call the BBYO office at 214-363-4654. The office will e-mail the order form to compose a personalized message. RSVPs for the dedication can be made through Alex Aronoff, Dallas director, at aaronoff@bbyo.org.
BBYO is known as the largest and most effective provider of identity-building and leadership development programs for Jewish teens. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., BBYO encompasses over 40 regions across North America, as well as Central and South America, Europe, Israel, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It includes more than 130 employees and over 800 volunteer advisors. BBYO has helped thousands of Dallas-area Jewish teens for over 50 years.
