:IDA JEWISH NEWS, JANUARY 17, 2003 PAGE 9 By Gloria Yousha -- Call 407-657-9405 or 407-834-8787 worth repeating As I write this column weeks in advance of publication, I have learned of the dual suicide bombings at the Tel Aviv bus that took almost two dozen lives. Something that television humorist DENNIS MILLER said ago (and I included in this column) bears repeat- nOW: i''The Palestinians want their own country. thing about that there are no Palestinians! up word! Before the Israeli s won the land in war, Gaza was owned by there were no Palestinians then. i The west bank was owned by Jordan.

Miller said it all and eloquently, as far as I'm at a state of war readiness? A * ,re we at war as you read this? haven't a clue, as I am writing in advance.

Well Howard and Bar- bara, it seems your grand- daughter Chelsea is the best fisherman in the family, by far! (And why haven't I been invited to a fish fry yet?) CHELSEA GOLD catching fish. ATTENTION, all lovers of Israel Last week I told you about a very important event that deserves repeating. And so I will repeat it. I received another email: "Picture the Christian Community of Orlando getting fully behind a project to benefit the State of Israel! 'That's just what is happening!' exclaimed RACHEL SHIPLEY, chairman of the Israel Vendors Caravan, that I wrote about in this column last week. "Literally dozens of Christian churches and organizations have contacted me since the news broke that 35 Israeli mer- chants were coming to the U.S. to sell their merchandise just as they do on Dizengoff and Ben Yehuda Streets. It is truly amazing!" Yes it is! Rachel told me of the true love for 'The Land' that these people have. She said that their tourism is practically all there is to Israel right now. So, Rachel says they have joined the Jewish Community in promoting this one day event. WRITE DOWN THIS DATE! Monday, February 10, at the JCC gymnasium in Maitland, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The money from all sales goes directly to these Israeli merchants. Meet me there, why don't you? We can go for a stroll down "Ben Yehuda" and we can shop and buy to benefit ourselves and Israelis. (I plan to repeat this message again next week and the weeks after that, right up to the event hoping you will help me by spreading the news to others as well.) G-d bless the USA! G-d bless Israel! "There is nothing like a mother" I'm quoting my own late mother, Sally Golub, who used to say that often especially when I thanked her for all the purely self- less deeds she did for me. (I try to honor her memory by doing self-less deeds for my children in turn.) HILDE SANDS knows the meaning of a "self-less" mother. She had one in Ida Schockner, who died on November 21, 2002, just before Thanksgiving. Ida was worthy of a tribute and Hilde wants to pay tribute to her best friend and mother. She sent me this letter: had more to get off his chest. He continued, "Rabbi, "This is the hardest thing that I have had to write. I know thewar, a beautiful Jewish woman asked me to hide her that no one can ever fill the void that she has left in my ~r roans. I hid her in my attic and they never found heart. ~he rabbi responded, "That was a wonderful thing you did. She wrote this in my junior high autograph book 'When all your friends have forsaken you, pray, do not look for another, Would you feel guilty?" ed, "I was weak and told her she must repay and she did." thought for a minute and then answered, "You n great danger and would have suffered terribly if the her.

Truer words were never spoken. I always said that if I ever had to choose a mother, I could not have chosen a better one. All her family and friends will miss the way she has touched them with her soft and loving ways, her generous and caring nature." Idawas a lovely lady, "just one of the girls"whenjoining Hilde for luncheons and movies, etc. She was very upbeat and young at heart. There are never enough words to comfort someone who has lost a mother but a lifetime of fond memories can truly be a blessing. Thanksgiving we went out on a 54 foot custom friend of Stan's.
