HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 8, 2019 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or gloriayousha@gmail.com Anti.Semitism in sports I read this in the current issue of the World Jewish Congress digest and pass it along: "The WJC and Chelsea Football Club recently held the final competitions of a global campaign to combatwidespread racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia in sports. The Pitch for Hope competition called on young people ages 18-30 in the United States, the United Kingdom and Israel to propose creative ideas for an initiative to harness the spirit of comradery in sports and build bridges between people of all backgrounds, faiths and walks of life. Soccer, especially in Europe, has been plagued by instances of anti-Semitism and racism foryears. Fans have led anti-Semitic chants, including making hissing noises to evoke the Nazi gas chambers, and targeted African and black players with monkey sounds, among other things. Ultra-nationalists and neo-Nazis have also played roles in supporter groups for various teams. Seren Fryatt of Washington D.C. and Alyssa Chassman of London were named as the winning team in New York, se curing a grant to turn their idea for a virtual 48-hour hackathon of ideas, called Unite 2030--20 multicultural teams developing what it means to promote inclusion in sports--to reality. In Tel Aviv, Idan Amos, Michael Shapira, and Raveh Shahar Tirosh took the top prize for their idea to create a line of shirts and scarves for soccer fans, displaying the logos and symbols of opposing teams on a single item of clothing, in order to draw rivals together in a spirit of comradery. The winner from the United Kingdom was Nick Spooner of Sheffield for his proposal, 'Know The Worth Score: Tackling Online Radicalization and Offline Hate.' Spooner also serves as the digital organizer of the Hope Not Hate activist community. WJC CEO and Executive Vice President Robert Singer noted that 'the fight against racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism in sports is only just beginning, and the road ahead is still long and challenging. We are proud to be teaming uyp with Chelsea Football Club to effect real change in this arena, but we know that we need the energy, ambition and vision of young people to really make a difference.'"

One for the road Abe is travelling on a bus to the mall. It's a hot day and everyone on board is quiet and subdued. Suddenly, Abe hears what seems to him to be a cry for help from the back of the bus. He looks to find out who is making the noise and sees that it's an elderly bubbeh. "Oy, am I thirsty," she cries out, "Oy, am I thirsty." This is repeated over and over again every few minutes. "Oy, am I thirsty. Oy, am I thirsty," and each time, there is more and more pain to the bubbeh's voice. This quickly begins to get on Abe's nerves, so he gets the bus driver to stop at the next corner and he goes to get the kvetcher a drink alrea@. When he returns, he goes straight to the bubbeh with a bottle of mineral water and says, "Here grandma, drink up. And then be quiet, will you?" The bubbeh drinks the water, Abe goes back to his seat and the bus continues on i:s journey. Some passengers begin to nod off again, others start reading their newspapers and the rest are just reliev(d that the old bubbeh is quiet. All of a sudden they hea from the back of the bus, "Oy, vas I thirsty Oy, vas I thirsty." EWISH NEWS can be purchased at the following locations: ORANGE COUNTY JCC, 851 N.

As part of its focus on improving quality of life for all in Israel, JNF-USAis dedicated to ensuring that no member of Israeli society is left be- hind. Observed each Febru- ary, JDAAIM was founded in 2009 by the Jewish Special Education International Con- sortium to raise awareness and encourage inclusion for people with disabilities and special needs. People with disabilities make up the world's larg- est minority group. Glob- ally, around 10 percent of the world's population lives with a disability of some kind. One in 10 people in the U.S. suf- fer from a disability. Over 10 percent of people in Israel have some form of a disability that can make life's daily activities a struggle. These statistics are just the beginning. Take into account the family, friends, and loved ones of those with disabilities who are also af- fected, and these numbers skyrocket. This is where JNF- USA and the importance of JDAAIM help. "Many people with physical, emotional, and developmen- tal disabilities in Israel feel alienated from their com- munities and sometimes the entire family feels marginal- ized, complicating an already challenging life," said JNF- USATask Force on Disabilities Director Yossi Kahana, whose son has autism. "At Jewish National Fund we open the doors to acceptance and in- clusion, and we are changing lives for thousands of children and their families every day." Throughout the month 0f February, JNF-USAis hostirg events across the country b highlight JDAAIM, featu- ing representatives fron the organization's partnes to raise awareness of arfl foster inclusion for peope with disabilities and special needs. Through a variety initiatives, JNF-USA provid6 cutting-edge rehabilitative services, special education, and medical care for people with cognitive, sensory, com- municative, developmental, and other disabilities. In addition, JNF-USA makes its forests, parks, picnic areas, playgrounds, nature trails, lookouts and recreational facilities inclusive for all visi- tors, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their ability level, is able to enjoy nature with their friends and family. JNF-USA's partners in this mission include: ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran: A state-of-the-art rehabilita- tive village in the Negev, ALEH Negev offers unparalleled care for people with severe disabili- ties, empowering residents and outpatients to help them reach their potential for com- munication and development.
