    Wexner siyyum 2010 ppt Wexner siyyum 2010 ppt Presentation Transcript

    • (To the tune of “Thunder Road”)
      Lech Lecha
      Les Wexner calls
      Seven essays, then the interviews with Jay and Cindy
      Did we make the cut at all?
    • Oh oh in Aspen, we first enjoyed our studies
      We shared the learning, we even became buddies
      When we went home again, we would not face our roles alone again.
    • We chose life with Yitz, we wrote -- ethical wills –
      We learned of peoplehood with Erica, Tanakh with Deborah
      Climbed up Aspen’s hills.
      In the mountains, Blu taught us how to journey –
      It is our calling, never easy, never hurried –
      Oh -And that’s all right, with us
    • Class started that September,
      danced Tanach with Doc Brown
      She showed us that our lives had a greater meaning now –
      Oh those stories touched us deep inside,
      B’reshit gave us great strength and pride!
    • JJ took us on a different journey,
      Jews now and then – oy we have some similar stories –
      The pendulum swings up and down, oh and where do we fit right now.
       
    • Penslar showed us the Modern age –
      Haskalah and our very own American stage,
      Zionism was a newfound rage,
      National fever -- it made us brave.
      Oh Wexner Road ---
    • Oh ohoh come take our hands,
      We’re leaders now tonight going to the Promised Land,
      oh ohohohWexner Road oh Wexner Road oh Wexner Road.
    • Jerusalem she made us talk.
      Coexistence, and religion, now we know how to walk the walk –
      Yom Gibush showed us that we are one.
      We connected, we learned, had fun.
      Oh Wexner Road.
    • (Chorus)
      Well we got this Tanakh and we learned how to make it talk –
      Jay Moses has our back and he’s teaching us to take that long walk.
      From our comfort zones to newer dreams and missions,
      Our task is daunting but it’s worth the vision.
      Oh and that’s all right with us.
       
    • She’s the one, Arna really has style and has class –
      She’s a scholar and a beauty, taught us -- how to ask the ask –
      Job -- he was a Serious Man – but he had faith, and that’s our plan.
    • Rabbi Pankin -- the Talmud man – he knew his text, he drew meaning,
      It was sweet and intriguing –
      It is our tradition somehow,
      Now we own it, it makes us proud.
      Oh Wexner Road
    • (Chorus)
      Well we got this Tanakh and we learned how to make it talk –
      Cindy Chazen has our back and she’s teaching us to take that long walk.
      From our comfort zones to newer dreams and missions,
      Our task is daunting but it’s worth the vision.
      Oh and that’s all right with us.
       
    • Our next chapter was of prayer -- to make meaning for us,
      Larry Hoffman shared his stories, and inspired us
      AdonOlam has new meaning now -
      We know God loves us, Hoff taught us how -
      Then ‘twas Shai, the waterlogged man,
      In 4 short sessions we covered an exhaustive span –
      Think of God just to make Him real –
      Idolatry – Hey what’s the deal?
      Oh Wexner Road
    • Oh, oh, oh, come take our hands.
      We’re leaders now tonight going to the Promised Land.
      (JOIN IN….)
      Oh, oh, oh, oh Wexner Road,
      oh, Wexner Road, oh WexnerRoad
      Oh, oh, oh, oh Wexner Road,
      oh, Wexner Road, oh Wexner Road.
