MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Hanukkah -- which means “dedication” in Hebrew -- began this year on Sunday night, December 18 and ends the evening of December 26.

So what better way to honor the “Festival of Lights” than with a 5 Star Story that centers around Tennessee’s first and largest synagogue, Temple Israel, and how a museum inside the synagogue not only illustrates the religious and creative expressions of Jewish people through the centuries, but also details the life of an ordinary man who was dedicated to extraordinary change.

Temple Israel, founded in Memphis in 1853 as Congregation B’nai Israel (Hebrew for Children of Israel), is the only Reform synagogue in the city and home to the oldest and largest Jewish congregation throughout the Mid-South.

According to Senior Rabbi Micah Greenstein, “It was founded opposite the front door of the Convention Center downtown.” A national historic marker now marks that spot.

Now located on East Massey Road, Temple Israel is also home to the Herta and Dr. Justin H. Adler Judaica Collection in the Temple Museum located on the synagogue’s second floor.

Their daughter and Temple Museum Board member Susan Adler Thorp said her parents were Holocaust survivors who in the 1950s began collecting Judaica -- art and religious objects which reflect Jewish life and culture.

“And it was their way of bringing the Jewish community back together again, a very small way, but very symbolic way,” explained Thorp.

The Adler Judaica Collection includes roughly 175 pieces the couple found on their travels throughout the world and donated to the Temple Museum in 1994.

Rabbi Greenstein says the museum is meant to edify and enlighten: “To educate the greater Memphis community, not just the Jewish community, but the greater arts community on how art is a medium, like music, to teach eternal lessons and values that ground us as humans.”

The museum also houses traveling exhibits, but following COVID closures and the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, the museum board wanted to focus more on healing and leadership through social justice.

“And so with further discussion it dawned on us, ‘Why are we looking outside of Temple Israel? Why don’t we look inside?”

The ”Righteous Among Men: Rabbi James A. Wax -- A Life Dedicated to Social Justice” multi-media exhibit tells the story of the former Senior Rabbi who led Temple Israel through some of this country’s and city’s most turbulent times.

“He wasn’t a marcher, he wasn’t a person or a firebrand preacher who wanted to make a public display of emotion. He wanted to resolve the sanitation strike and worked hard at it behind the scenes,” Greenstein recounted.

But on April 6, 1968, as president of the Memphis Ministers Association, Rabbi Wax famously confronted then-Memphis Mayor Henry over his refusal to end the sanitation workers strike following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As Greenstein expressed, “He’s known as making the front page of the New York Times and every network channel waving his finger at the mayor saying, ‘There are laws higher than the state of Tennessee.’”

But Rabbi Greenstein noted that Rabbi Wax’s position was very unpopular at the time. As he put it, “When he confronted Mayor Loeb, he caught holy hell.”

Rabbi Wax received over 120 letters of condemnation after that confrontation, “inviting” him to leave the city. Many of those letters are part of the exhibit, as are the 81 letters of support Rabbi Wax also received, one of them from Temple member and museum docent Barbara Lapides and her late husband.

“We wanted Rabbi Wax to know how proud we were of him and how much we appreciated and respected his taking the stand that he had taken,” Lapides explained.

Rabbi Wax’s social justice concerns also centered around a subject that was considered taboo by many back in those days: mental health.

“He said that mental health is as important as physical health in the 1960s. Now we all talk about mental health. He wanted to give voice to the voiceless,” Greenstein stated.

The story of Rabbi Wax is still a relevant topic for museum visitors today.

“I hope they learn about a man who considered himself just an ordinary man but who did extraordinary things at a time of great crisis in this city,” said Lapides.

While Rabbi Greenstein added, “This exhibit is not meant just to review the past. It’s meant for each of us to address the present in light of the past. It’s about the power of one person to make a difference. And as King or Rabbi Wax would say, you don’t have to be a rabbi or a minister. You just have to have the courage to care.”

The Temple Israel Museum, celebrating and commemorating the Jewish experience, diversity and human dignity by preserving history, is something that makes us proud to call the Mid-South home.

The museum is open Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, as well as the first Friday of the month. For details about times and information about Temple Israel, the Museum and Rabbi James. A. Wax, click here.

Draymond Green Addresses Ja Morant Dismissing Competition In Western Conference

The Golden State Warriors and ...

The Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies have been engaged in an entertaining back-and-forth since the 2022 NBA Playoffs. Warriors’ star Draymond Green had some words for Memphis’ outspoken star Ja Morant, who asserted that his squad had no competition in the Western Conference during a December 2022 interview.

“I know everybody wanted to hear what I had to say about Ja’s take,” the Warriors power forward said during the Jan. 5 episode of his podcast, The Draymond Green Show. “I think you all know how I feel about that. I got a lot of love and respect for Ja; [a] young leader that makes his guys believe whatever he believes, and that’s a very powerful thing as a leader. He got that, has had it since day one, and you can see it. Glaringly noticeable since the time he stepped foot in Memphis.”

"I know everybody wanted to hear what I had to say about Ja's take… You are fine Ja. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, that's a topic for another day."Draymond Green on Ja Morant saying he's not worried about any West teams ? (via @TheVolumeSports)

— ClutchPoints (@ClutchPointsApp) January 5, 2023

The 32-year-old continued with a smirk, “I’m not quite sure he can make his guys believe that one, which is ‘I’m fine in the west.’ You are fine, Ja, you are, but the Warriors [are] in the west now, champ. So yes, you are fine, Ja. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, that’s a topic for another day.”

The sarcastic yet confident tone in Green’s voice likely stems from the fact that the Grizzlies, following Ja’s comments, suffered a 123-109 loss to his Golden State Warriors team who played without two-time MVP Stephen Curry and All-Star Andrew Wiggins. In their following game, they lost 125-108 to a Phoenix Suns team without superstar Devin Booker, Cameron Payne, Cam Johnson, and Landry Shamet.

Ja Morant said, ‘I’m fine in the West,’ and the Grizzlies proceeded to lose back-to-back games to…? The Warriors without Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins? The Suns without Devin Booker, Cam Payne, Cam Johnson, and Landry Shamet

The Grizzlies point guard told NBA Today host Malika Andrews that he was only concerned about the Boston Celtics in an interview clip posted on Dec. 21. When asked about the west, he made the bold claim that Draymond refuted in just a few words and the Grizzlies’ performance following the claim.

Though Morant is one of the league’s bright young stars and the team has a promising future, he and the Grizzlies have ways to go before they can make such lofty claims as they have never made it to the NBA Finals and only made one Western Conference Finals, which they lost in 2013.

Grizzlies at Magic key injuries

Grizzlies at Magic picks and predictions

Grizzlies 129, Magic 110


The Grizzlies (-270) should come out on top, but there is no need to risk almost 3 times your potential profit on the ML when Memphis should win by margin. Bet the spread or total instead.

BET GRIZZLIES -7.5 (-102).

The Grizzlies have looked great lately, winning their last 4 games by an average of 15.5 points. The Magic are coming off a good win vs. the Thunder, but Oklahoma City was due for a letdown after winning straight up as an 11.5-point home underdog 150-117 vs. the Boston Celtics Tuesday. Don’t overreact to Orlando’s win over Oklahoma City. Lay the points.

BET OVER 231.5 (-110).

The Over is 4-0 in Orlando’s last 4 games after covering in its previous game and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these teams in Orlando. Memphis is averaging 121 points in its last 4 games and should help the Over hit vs. a Magic team that is 27th in defensive efficiency when playing at home.

WHO: Memphis Grizzlies (25-13, 15-3 home) vs. Utah Jazz (20-21, 8-14 away)

WHEN: 5:00 PM CT

WHERE: FedExForum

HOW TO WATCH/LISTEN: Bally Sports Southeast/92.9 FM ESPN Memphis


MEMPHIS: Ja Morant (Questionable, Thigh), Steven Adams (Questionable, Non-COVID Illness), Brandon Clarke (Out, Hip), Jake LaRavia (Out, G League Assignment), Vince Williams Jr. (Out, Two-Way Transfer), Kenneth Lofton Jr. (Out, Two-Way Transfer), Danny Green (Out, Knee)

UTAH: Collin Sexton (Out, Hamstring), Johnny Juzang (Out, Wrist)


MEMPHIS: Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, Dillon Brooks, Jaren Jackson Jr., Steven Adams

UTAH: Mike Conley, Jordan Clarkson, Lauri Markkanen, Kelly Olynk, Jarred Vanderbilt

The win streak is up to five for the Memphis Grizzlies as they prepare to face the Utah Jazz for the third time this season. The Jazz took the first two meetings when these teams played back-to-back games in October. The Grizzlies were without Ja Morant in the initial meeting and they lost 124-123 despite 32 points from Desmond Bane. In the next game, Memphis was without Bane and while Morant exploded for 37 points, the Grizzlies lost 121-105.

While this is obviously a much different Jazz team from years past, the GrzNxtGen have not fared well against Utah. Since 2019, the Grizzlies are 3-9 against the Jazz. However, Utah is 3-7 in their last 10 after starting the season hot. Memphis has been lights out at home this season, boasting a 15-3 record at the FedEx Forum.

Will Memphis grab its sixth straight victory or will Utah move to 3-0 against the Grizzlies this season? Here are the keys to the game.

Minimize Markkanen

Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert may be gone, but Utah is still competitive thanks to the emergence of Lauri Markkanen. The sixth-year player is having the best season of his career. In two games against the Grizzlies this season, Markkanen has averaged 27 points on 55.6/40/88.9 shooting splits, 10 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.5 stocks. The Finn will likely make his first career All-Star game and is a top contender for the Most Improved Player award.

Markkanen is on a hot streak. Not including Saturday’s game against the Bulls, Markkanen is averaging 33.8 points on 51.2/35.6/98.3 shooting splits and 10.5 rebounds in the Jazz’s last six contests. Thursday against the Rockets, Markkanen poured in 49 points, a new career high. Over the last six games, Markkanen has averaged nearly 10 free throw attempts, which could pose some critical issues for Memphis. Grizzlies fans are all too familiar with Jaren Jackson Jr. running into foul trouble. If Markkanen is able to take out JJJ early, he could take over the game.

Dillon Brooks and Jackson will likely take turns guarding Markkanen. Both defenders can cause problems for the Jazz star. Brooks can use his frame and pesky defense to limit his perimeter impact while Jackson will use his wingspan and blocking ability to control the paint. If the Grizzlies’ star defenders can slow down Markkanen, the Grizzlies may grab their sixth straight win.

‘12’ Takeover

Morant had not looked quite like the superstar Grizzlies fans have come to love for some time, but it is safe to say 12 is back. Over his last seven games, Morant has averaged 30.1 points on 51.6 FG%, 8.3 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals. With all of the recent elite performances across the NBA, Morant’s nightly excellence has gone under the radar.

Morant is one of the league’s most gifted scorers, so it is only a matter of time until he explodes for a monster-scoring night and why not tonight? The Jazz are fourth-worst in defensive rating and dead last in opponent points in the paint. Additionally, Utah is third-worst in opponent second-chance points and opponent fastbreak points. Memphis has the third-best transition offense and scores the fourth most points in the paint and second-chance points. With Steven Adams controlling the boards, Memphis should get extra possessions for Morant to capitalize on. Morant is the catalyst for the Grizzlies’ electric transition offense and leads the team in points in the paint.

The Jazz present a favorable matchup for Morant, showcased by his 37-point performance in October. Utah lacks any strong perimeter defenders. Mike Conley, Malik Beasley and Jordan Clarkson will be unable to stay in front of Morant. Clarkson has a defensive rating of 119.3 this year, Conley is at 117.6 and Beasley holds a 116.7 rating. Morant has not scored over 40 points since the second game of the season, but he has tallied over 30 points in six of his last nine games. Tonight is the night he eclipses 40, and he may even reach 50 for the first time this season.

The Prediction

The Grizzlies cannot feel good about those back-to-back losses against the Jazz in October. This is a prideful bunch, and the Grizzlies are ready to enact some revenge tonight. I think the Grizzlies have looked the best they have all season in this recent win streak. From the top of the roster to the bottom, the Grizz look more engaged and focused than ever and their shots are finally falling. If Brooks and Jackson can avoid picking up early fouls, their defensive effort will pave the way for a memorable Morant game.

Memphis 126, Utah 108

SAN FRANCISCO — (AP) — California braced for more stormy weather with rain starting to sweep into the northern part the state and the San Francisco Bay area on Saturday, preceding a series of powerful incoming Pacific storms and raising the potential for road flooding, rising rivers and mudslides on soils already saturated after days of rain.

The National Weather Service warned of a "relentless parade of atmospheric rivers" over the coming week, producing heavy rain and mountain snow. Atmospheric river storms are long plumes of moisture stretching out into the Pacific and are capable of dropping staggering amounts of rain and snow.

The wet weather comes after days of rain in California from Pacific storms. A series of recent weather systems have knocked out power to thousands, flooded streets, battered the coastline and caused at least six deaths.

The first of the heavier storms was due to arrive Monday, and the weather service issued a flood watch for a large swath of Northern and Central California with 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 centimeters) of rain expected through Wednesday in the Sacramento-area foothills.

In the Los Angeles area, light rain was forecast for the weekend with stormy conditions expected to return Monday with the potential for up to 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rain in the foothills. High surf was expected through Tuesday, with large waves on west-facing beaches, the National Weather Service said.

Since December 26, San Francisco received more than 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain, while Mammoth Mountain, a popular ski area in the Eastern Sierra, received nearly 10 feet (3 meters) of snow, the National Weather Service reported.

The storms won't be enough to officially end California's ongoing drought but they have helped.

State climatologist Michael Anderson told a news briefing late Saturday that officials were closely monitoring Monday's incoming storm and another behind it and were keeping an eye on three other systems farther out in the Pacific.
