 We are sad to inform you that Rabbi Smason’s great aunt Edith Rodgon passed away. Rabbi Smason shared some thoughts with us:

My great-aunt Edith was my maternal grandfather’s sister. Aunt Edith lived to be 100, and was the last living relative of that generation on either side of my family. Aunt Edith was strong, capable and feisty — just like my grandfather Lou (after whom our son Leib is named). She lived a long and healthy life and merited to see children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. My mother ‘just happened’ to be in Chicago for a family bar-mitzvah, and made arrangements to stay for the Thursday funeral. So, to honor both my great-aunt and mother, I’m driving with Chani to Chicago for the Thursday funeral (at which another rabbi will officiate).

B’Simchas,
Rabbi Smason

Rabbi Smason nominated to RCA executive committee(Runs 05/07/2010-12/31/2010)
 (reprint from St. Louis Jewish Light)

Rabbi Smason in STL JL The Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) has nominated Rabbi Ze’ev Smason to serve a three-year term on its Executive Committee. Rabbi Smason is the spiritual head of Nusach Hari B’nai Zion (NHBZ).

 

The RCA is one of the world’s largest organizations of Orthodox rabbis, as well as a very important voice in the general Jewish world. The RCA, established in 1935, seeks to promote the welfare, interests, and professionalism of rabbis all around the world. Membership in the RCA is held by close to 1,000 ordained rabbis, spread throughout 14 countries.

Rabbi Smason attributes his nomination to the RCA Nominating Committee’s interest in including diverse perspectives – religiously, geographically, and culturally – on its Executive Committee.

NHBZ, he points out, has been described as an “unorthodox” Orthodox synagogue. He takes pride in the steps the congregation has taken to commit to community building and service to the general Jewish community not only by making traditional Judaism accessible, but also in focusing on points of commonality, and breaking misconceptions.

“We’re different now from our original purpose; there’s a different reason for being here,” says Rabbi Smason. “In real life there are very few Orthodox or Conservative or Reform Jews; there are Jews who have wide and varying degrees of familiarity with their own religion. If you ask me if we’re Orthodox, I’d say ‘yes’ because we are committed to traditional values and Jewish law. But I’d follow that up with the qualifier that we are very unorthodox in our approach.”

A Match Made in St. Louis’ Partnership 2000 Israeli Sister City
This is about a match made in St. Louis’ Partnership 2000 (P2K) sister-city in Israel that has taken that partnership to a new level.Chiyya Smason, son of Rabbi Ze’ev and Rebbetzin Smason of Nusach Hari, and Chagit Caspi of Yokneam, daughter or Hanan Caspi, former regional development director of P2K region (Yokneam-Megiddo) who works with the people-to-people programs, met at a P2K-sponsored Orthodox Shabbaton. Young people from St. Louis who are in Israel are invited on a regular basis to Yokneam for Shabbatons, conducted by former Young Israel Rabbi Jeffery Bienenfeld.Chiyya, who attended Block Yeshiva High School, went to a pre-military yeshiva in the Golan Heights after high school with an eye toward enlisting in the Army. Chiyya just completed his Commander School course, and is now a Sergeant. After a week’s vacation following the completion of his course, he and the unit of men under him will be deployed somewhere in Israel.“Chiyya made these choices because he wanted to make the most significant contribution to the homeland of our Jewish people,” said Rabbi Smason. “He loves Israel and is religiously motivated. We also have deep family connections to Israel. My wife’s family and now two of our kids live there. While at Yeshiva, my son attended a Shabbaton and the two met. He’s handsome. She’s pretty. They have common values and goals.”Rabbi Smason said that last October, he was in Yokneam staying in an apartment with his son. “One night we took a long walk. It was late. After our walk, I asked, ‘Are you coming to sleep now?’ He smiled sheepishly and said he was going for a walk with Chagit. At that point I knew something was up. They began dating actively at the end of last year and were engaged this past May.” They’re getting married in Israel the end of December this year.

This is one marriage that will be based on a true Partnership.

Security for High Holidays(Runs 09/14/2001-09/29/2002)
 To insure peace of mind we have hired a security guard to be on duty during Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. In addition, the University City Police have beefed up their patrols around all synagogues and have been, and will be, a very visible presence. Both U-City and Olivette Police Departments will also schedule extra patrols during the times we will be walking to and from shul. We will have Child Care for both days of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur day. Please rest assured that we have made these arrangements so we can all spend worry-free, peaceful and safe times in shul together.
