Opening the door to the Cummings Centre is opening a myriad
of possibilities in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Whatever courses
you choose to take, you are bound to learn and expand your interests,
pleasure and satisfaction. Personally, I experienced a ‘light bulb
moment' in the Fine Arts and Craft Centre, which culminated in the
publication of two books entitled Honourable Menschen. I met the most
incredible people who planted the seed for this project which was a collection of
tributes and interviews. Thanks to the Cummings Centre, I have reached fulfillment beyond
my dreams. Make a plan to visit and take a tour with a staff member. You’ll be glad you
did.

Thomas John "Tom" Thomson (1877 – 1917) was an influential Canadian artist
of the early 20th century. He directly influenced a group of Canadian painters
who would come to be known as the Group of Seven. Although he died before
the group was formally formed, he is sometimes incorrectly credited as being a
member of the group itself. This course will examine his life and his paintings.

MUSICAL TALES OF LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY
MART 335
Spain is an alluring land of passionate spirits, flamboyant dance rhythms, dazzling colours and an
aura all its own, one slightly tinged with exoticism. It is a land celebrated in music not only by its
many native composers like de Falla and Albeniz, but equally by foreigners: Bizet in Carmen, Ravel
in Bolero, Rimsky-Korsakov in Capriccio espagnol and many others. Then there’s an enormous
repertory of music for Spain’s national instrument, the guitar, and its indigenous form of operetta,
the zarzuela. It all adds up to an enthralling two hours of music.
Chamber music is one of the fastest-growing areas of interest today in audiences for classical
music. This is music for a small number of musicians, each with his or her own part to play. Enjoy
listening to, or watching on video, a duet by Bach, a trio by Mozart, a quartet by Dvorak, a quintet
by Brahms, a sextet by Poulenc, a septet by Beethoven, an octet by Mendelssohn . . . and on we go!
From Beethoven to Berio, new music has often shaken, stunned and bemused the first audiences
to hear it. Discover some of the epochal works that began life amidst scathing criticism but which
today are regarded as masterpieces. Listen to passages from Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony,
Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, Strauss’s opera Salome and Stravinsky’s ballet score The Rite of
Spring as if they were brand new. In addition, you will be challenged with a few additional works
that might really surprise and shock modern ears. Maybe even yours!
Let your imagination run wild with some of the fantastic and colourful tales that have been set to
music. We’ll sample episodes from the Arabian Nights, Russian folklore, Norse mythology, German
legends and Flemish fiction. Never a dull moment!
Robert Markow’s musical career began as a horn player with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
He has taught music appreciation at McGill University and has written program notes for the
Montreal Symphony, the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa as well as for events at New
York’s Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.

Art and Music Appreciation
Diminutive in physical size but gigantic in stature and impact, Leonard Bernstein was unquestionably
one of the most incredibly talented, popular and dynamic personalities in the entire history of music.
In his 72 years he played the roles of conductor, composer, pianist, author, lecturer, philosopher
and overall champion of music – and he played them all superbly well. Listen to some of his music
written for film, for the Broadway stage and for the concert hall as well as observe him in action as
a conductor, pianist and lecturer.

WHEN GREAT ART MEETS GREAT EVIL GLOB 353
SCIENTISTS AND THE GREAT WARS OF THE 20th CENTURY
GLOB 354
The words ‘Jewish’, ‘Degenerate’ and ‘Bolshevik’ were used by the Nazis to describe
any art or music not acceptable to the Third Reich. What constituted degenerate
music was the content, the political views of the composer, the composer’s
religion or music described as African-American or modern in derivation. Many
Jewish composers escaped to Britain or America in the 1930’s and were most
successful in exile. Learn how the Nazis utilized the idea of degenerate [entartete]
music, who was involved and how people coped with this barbarism.

DECORATING TIPS AND TRICKS
GLOB 356
Africa has a rich, ancient, and varied history, with a variety of climates and
cultures. The archeological record indicates that it is the likely birthplace of
the human race and has an unbroken continuity of tribal life in small and larger
scale societies that constitute civilizations in their own right. It is also a region
of the world that was subject to Western colonization and exploitation but is
now poised to emerge as an assembly of nations whose role in the world is of
increasing importance.

The Power of Forgiveness

Lectures
Monday, April 22 7 p.m.
To forgive someone can be simple, but the effects can be transformative. Over the past 20 years, researchers have been
examining the psychological and physical effects of forgiveness under a wide variety of conditions, ranging from petty insults
to abuse and trauma. Join us for the screening of the film The Power of Forgiveness which looks at the important work of
Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh and others. Explore Northern Ireland, Ground Zero and the Amish
Countryside as examples of journeys from trauma to forgiveness. Anne Marie Hagan, a storyteller from the Forgiveness Project
www.theforgivenessproject.com will introduce the film by Skype from Newfoundland and share her own story.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Rabbi Lisa Grushcow of Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom and Anne Marie Hagen.

THE M.E.L.T. METHOD IS BACK!
The M.E.L.T. Method is a simple self-treatment technique that reduces chronic pain and helps
maintain a healthy active lifestyle. The M.E.L.T. technique reduces the effects of accumulated
tension and stress caused by daily living. This “stuck stress” accumulates and causes dehydration
in the connective tissue, which interferes with the nervous system’s ability to regulate itself and
slows the body’s natural healing process.
THE M.E.L.T. METHOD: “FOAM ROLLER”
THE M.E.L.T. METHOD: “BALLS"
M.E.L.T. uses a foam roller to stimulate
the effects of hands-on bodywork. Learn
techniques for the decompression of the
lower back and neck, lengthening of the ribs
as well as other movements for hips and
shoulders. You will learn to stabilize the core
part of your body as you move arms and legs
in small controlled movements as you lie on
the foam roller. You must be able to exercise
on the floor.
The Hand & Foot Treatment is an innovative
self-treatment technique that can leave your
whole body feeling better in just minutes. By
stimulating the hands and feet, this easy-tolearn treatment can help you alleviate common
hand and foot problems, as well as neck and back
tension. Using specialized techniques and three
small balls, M.E.L.T. rehydrates the connective
tissue, rebalances the nervous system and
restores space to compressed joints.

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847), child prodigy and musical genius, was
the grandson of philosopher Moses Mendelssohn. Born into a prominent Jewish
family, he was raised without religion and baptized as a Lutheran Christian at
age 7. He was a prolific composer, musician and a conductor. His music was later
banned by the Nazis as he was considered a Jew and re-emerged to great acclaim
after the war. Audio and visual material will be used to explore the Mendelssohn
family, the music of Felix and his legacy.

Avi Nesher's latest film mixes comedy with drama as it tells a unique
coming-of-age story. Arik, a teenage boy growing up in Haifa in 1968,
gets a job working for Yankele Bride, a matchmaker. Yankele works
in a movie theatre run by a family of seven Romanian dwarves. As
Arik begins to learn the mysteries of the human heart through
his work with Yankele, he falls in love with Tamara, who has just
returned from America full of talk of women's rights, free love and
rock and roll. The disparate parts of Arik's life collide in unexpected, often
funny and very moving ways as he lives through a summer that changes
him forever.

A word from our clients
“I would like to thank you for always going
out of your way to accommodate my last
minute requests to get the services of
a driver for my mother. I live out of the
country and it is wonderful to know that
my mother is well taken care of. Each driver
is caring, punctual, polite and respectful.
They do relieve a lot of the stress of going
to her doctor’s appointments.”
Corinne N.
Quelques mots de nos clients
« Je ne peux trouver aucun mot adéquat
pour décrire à quel point les services de
transport assisté et d’accompagnement
sont importants. S'ils n’étaient pas
disponibles, ma mère n’aurait pu bénéficier
du merveilleux service d’un chauffeur
attentionné qui la conduit à ses rendezvous médicaux. C'est vraiment un service
extrêmement précieux car il améliore la
qualité de vie des personnes qui en ont
besoin et, en même temps, il donne un
certain répit aux membres de la famille
qui sont occupés. »

UN MOT DE NOS MEMBRES...
I’m involved at the Centre as both a volunteer and program taker.
I serve on several committees including Service Excellence,
Training and Development and the Board of Directors. I find it
particularly rewarding to see the results of my involvement on
the functioning of the Agency. I enjoy fabulous programs such
as book reviews, lectures and the film- talkumentary series,
I’m interested in the topics, love learning and the quality of the
programs continues to impress me.

Je viens au Centre Cummings pour voir du monde, pour
parler et communiquer. Je travaille comme bénévole au Cercle
Sépharade et je participe à plusieurs programmes du « foyer ». Le
Centre offre des conférences très intéressantes, des sorties
et des célébrations des fêtes. Je suis ici le plus que je peux.
– Fanny Cohen
The Cummings Cente Guide, which we receive at home by
mail and online, displays the incredible diversity of activities
available for our community. But it was during a mid-morning
tour of the bustling facility recently, what struck me was the
warmth and attentiveness of the staff and volunteers, and the
enthusiasm of the engaged participants going through their
“paces.” The Centre is a jewel of our community and our
family is proud to help support it!
