Former Westporter Judith Schindler Installed as Rabbi in North Carolina

Judith Schindler, a 1984 Staples grad, has been installed as rabbi at Temple Beth El in Charlotte, N.C. schindler75.jpg

Among those attending the installation service today was Schindler’s mother, Rhea, who still lives in Westport, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Schindler, 37, had been associate rabbi at the temple for five years. She is married and the mother of two.

Being a rabbi runs in the family. Schindler’s father, Alexander, was one of the most influential leaders in modern Reform Judaism before he died in 2000 at age 75.

Of the 920 Reform Jewish congregations in North America, Temple Beth El is one of about a half-dozen with more than 1,000 families to be led by a woman, the newspaper said.

Blumenthal to Issue Same-Sex Marriage Opinion Monday

State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal plans to issue his opinion on the legality of same-sex marriage in Connecticut on Monday, the same day Massachusetts is expected to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples to comply with a court order.

The opinion will be watched especially closely in Westport. The five ministers at Westport’s Unitarian Church have recently performed marriage ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples in New Paltz, N.Y.

And First Selectwoman Diane G. Farrell, who is also a justice of the peace, has said she will perform same-sex marriages if Blumenthal gives the goahead.

“The issues are really historic and profoundly significant,” Blumenthal said today, according to an AP report.

Westport’s Lisa Bastoni: Street Singer and Recording Artist

Today’s Boston Globe spotlights 1994 Staples grad Lisa Bastoni and the singer-songwriter’s odyssey from performing for spare change on Boston street corners and subway stops to a just-released CD.

Now living in Somerville, Mass., Bastoni, 27, grew up in Westport as “the troubled daughter of parents who are now recovering alcoholics,” the newspaper said.

“Performing for spare change on corners and in T stops has taught her about the healing powers of songs and the redemptive joy of sharing your art with others,” according to the Globe.

“The hard lessons have come from other places.”

Unhealthy Air Quality Expected Today

For the second time in three days, federal and state health officials say they expect elevated levels of fine particles today with unhealthy levels expected in southwestern Connecticut.

A similar advisory was issued Wednesday.

An advisory from the Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection said when fine particle concentrations in the ambient air are elevated, people with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children are the groups most at risk.

Maps showing real-time particle levels throughout New England are available at the EPA Web site. Updated air quality forecasts are also available at this Web site.
