Rabbi James RosenbergRabbi James RosenbergI became rabbi of Temple Habonim in Barrington in August 1974.  By the time the first snowflakes were flying in November or December of that year, I had learned that the town’s Department of Public Works customarily plowed the driveways and parking lots of the churches and synagogue free of charge.  The one caveat was that such plowing would take place only after the DPW had cleared all the town’s roads and public spaces.

Rabbi James RosenbergRabbi James RosenbergOn an especially glum Wednesday afternoon in late January, I finally took the time to see Steven Spielberg’s highly acclaimed film “Lincoln.”  Although at times the script drifted into melodrama, the movie did manage to hold my attention for its run time of 2 ½ hours.

Rabbi James RosenbergRabbi James RosenbergFollowing World War II, the Army brass assigned my older cousin Larry the task of overseeing all the PXs (military stores) in Western Europe. As a result of this position, he came to meet a number of U.S. celebrities – among them the popular comedian, Jack Benny, who had crossed the Atlantic to entertain the troops.  Before returning to the States, Benny asked my cousin if he could do him any favors once he returned to New York City.  Larry asked him to call his mother, Ann Berg, who lived in the Bronx.
