Among the organizations that hosted food collection drives were Jewish Fed- eration of Greater Orlando, Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando. Hillel, Beit Hamidrash. Hebrew Day School. all the local synagogues. Scholastic Book Cub Scout Pack 148. Jewish Family Services was looking at a pretty bare pantry this winter. When the Heritage Florida Jewish News reported that fact. the community responded. "The response from the community was overwhelm- ing," according to Barry Kudlowitz, JFS executive director. "By far, this was the busiest December in requests for help from those in need and by responses from those who wanted to help, in all the years I can remember." JFS conducted two com- munitywide benefits for the winter holidays. In addition to the emergency food drive to help feed community members hit hard by the re- cession, it also ran its annual Get Caught Caring program. a winter holiday toy drive to help those families in need during the holidays.

"Special thanks are given to Ed Calish, Boy Scout Troop 641 scoutmaster and his scouts for creating the collection boxes and dropping them off at the different Sites and Lake High Prep School Cub Scout Pack 148 for hold- ing their own food drive for J FS." said Cohen. who wanted the community to accept a heartfelt apology if an orga- nization was inadvertently omitted. She also wanted to note the many generous individuals who supported the drives. The next opportunity for JFS to have a community food drive takes place in a few months. The Feinstein Chal- lenge, a national canned food drive to help end hunger, will . be in March andAprii.

"As we roll into 2009, we hope your support will con- tinue throughout the coming year. Hunger doesn'tstop after the holidays, and our pantry must always remain stocked to help those in need," said Cohen. "If you or your orga- nization would like to host a canned food collectionduring this period, please let us know ..... The community responded in i!i "% December, and we know that : they will be with us again."

The Kabbalah of handwriting Yaakov Rosenthal of New York. an international lecturer and renowned graphologist, will present a lecture titled "Discover the Real you... The Kabbalah of Handwrit- ing." The lecture will be at the Chabad Center of South Orlando on Monday, Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. For 20 years Rosenthal has been helping people discover themselves through their handwriting. Renowned psy- chologists, school guidance counselors, businessmen and social workers use his services on a regular basis. He has been lecturing on the subject for more than 13 years. Rosenthal learned under the world famous authority on gra- phology, FelixKlein. Kleinisthe founder of the National Society of Graphology, founder of the National Bureau of Document Examiners and a past president of the American Association of Handwriting Analysts. Graphology is the science of readingan individual's person- ality based on their handwrit- ing. "People are enlightened with the absolute depth of graphology," says Rabbi Yosef Konikov. executive director of Chabad of South Orlando. "One session with a good Graphologist can accomplish more than many sessionswith a social worker." Graphologists say a proper analysis ofone'swriting reveals a host of personality and char- acter traits that enable one to make important life choices. Handwriting analysis is the scientific study of handwriting and is invaluable in determin- ing the personality and charac- ter of the writer. It is a tool that is successfully being used by Human Resource departments in hiring employees, psycholo- gists to better understand their patients, school teachers and ...... counselors to aid in a better student-teacher interaction, as well as criminal identification and questions of parole and jury selections.
