  • The Los Alamos Jewish Center community welcomes a guest for this year’s High Holiday season, Rabbi Melissa Klein. Klein will not only officiate religious services, but will also lead community events that weave together traditional high holiday values with the theme, “Generation to Generation.”
    Longtime Los Alamos rabbi Jack Shlachter was invited to lead services at a synagogue in Vienna, Austria. His acceptance of the invitation prompted the LAJC to engage Klein.
    Klein, of Philadelphia, is one of Los Alamos’ own — she was raised in Los Alamos and the Jewish Center was a second home to her.  
    She offered her first sermon to the community when she was a teenager. During her early 20s, she returned for two summers, and later she co-organized and helped lead High Holidays.  
    Klein’s parents, Morris and Susan, who plan to join the community for Yom Kippur, lived in Los Alamos from 1969-1999, before moving to Washington, D.C. Morris served as president of the Jewish Center and Susan was an active volunteer, organizing many Ghost Ranch retreats for the community over the years.  

  • NASA has recently release video of the NASA Curiosity rover landing from the jettison of the head shield to the touchdown.

  •  Some might say the Beatles were the most popular and influential rock band of the 20th Century and most wouldn’t argue too much about that.  From 1962-1970, the Beatles had 54 songs that made it to #1 on the Billboard Music Charts in the U.S. and UK.
    On Friday, a reggae, ska, dub, rock, punk and rock steady Beatles tribute band, Yellow Dubmarine, will play at 7 p.m. at Ashley Pond. Yellow Dubmarine play and have recorded those 54 #1 songs, plus they’ve recorded the entire “Abbey Road” album.
     Dub is a genre of music, which grew out of reggae and reggae grew out of ska. Ska music is a type of fast dance music that came from Jamaica, using a lot of brass. Rock steady slowed the tempo and often resulted in love, R&B or blues songs. Then came reggae in the 60s, with emerging superstars like Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and other greats. Most reggae focuses on politics, protest, black consciousness and the Rastafarian spiritual movement.
    Dub features electronic instrumental remixes emphasizing drums and bass with lots of reverb and echo. This combination of Jamaican music is how Yellow Dubmarine play the Beatles’ greatest hits.

  • The Los Alamos Lads of Enchantment, the local  chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society announced that Jonathan Friedman was appointed as the new musical director of the chorus, July 26.
    Friedman is new to the area and the chapter and brings 28 years of barbershop singing, craft and directing to the chapter.
    Friedman recently said, “Our chorus has great potential and is loaded with very talented and motivated performers. Believe in yourselves. All I ask is for your attention, attendance, discipline and trust.
    “Together, we can look forward to great times of harmony and fellowship.”  
     Friedman previously gave vocal direction to the Tacoma Totemaires Barbershop Chapter in Washington state and organized the Temecula Wine Valley Harmonizers in California.
    Friedman succeeds longtime choral director Stan Bennett, who helped found the Lads of Enchantment chorus 20 years ago and has served as its director since its inception.  
    Bennett decided to “take a break” and pursue his other passion — singing as a bass in the chorus and with Four Praise Quartet.
    Friedman will lead the Lads’ Annual Show Oct. 26 and 27.
    He is a table games director at the Santa Claran Hotel Casino and lives in Española.
