HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 9, 2018 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or gloriayousha@gmail.com Not "fake news" Recently, I watched the movie "Fiddler on the Roof" (for the third time) on television. This time was particularly strange as I felt that I was in Russia and Ukraine while watching. It just happens that my ancestry comes from Russia and Ukraine. (Could it be a sign?) New Director-General "World Jewish Congress (WJC) CEO AND Executive Vice President ROBERT SINGER congratulated former French Culture Minister, AUDREY AZOULAY on her recent appoint- ment as Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and expressed hope that she would push for much-needed reforms to address the ongoing politicization of UNESCO. Audrey Azoulay UNESCO, as too many other international bodies, has been hijacked by the political agendas of some of its member states, resulting in the adoption of egregious decisions, including the attempts to rewrite history and deny the historic Jewish link to its ancient homeland. This relentless bias and double standard against Israel must come to an end. Singer said, 'We are hopeful that Ms Azoulay will maximize her position to address the issues of concern for Israel and the Jewish world, and push for the reforms so deeply needed to return UNESCO to its core mandate of contributing to peace and security in the world by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science, culture and communica- Ga! Harrison tion for the sake of justice, rule of law, and human rights and freedoms. We do not expect any miracles among UNESCO voting states overnight, but we are confident that change is indeed possible.'" Jewish Pavilion news A very special event has been planned for women who contribute a minimum of $500 to the Jewish Pavilion. GAY HARRISON will be opening up her home for a tea on Tuesday, Feb. 20. She will discuss new trends in jewelry. Participants will receive a sneak preview of her Spring Collection. All donors of $1000 will re- ceive a 35-nch strand of blue-black pearls that can be doubled. Donors of ;500 will receive an 18-inch strand. (I really ant my cookies. Oh wrong event!) JCC 39en The nex: Meet and Mingle Monday will be presented by Dr. TERRIE FINE, PhD on Feb. 12th in the JCC Senior Lounge. The subject is"The informal powers of Congress." The program starts at I p.m. and is followed by refreshments. (I reallywant my cookies. Again, wrong event!) Shout-Outs Once again, I passed out after performing at a memorial. This time it was for the fabulous clarinetist, Syl LaFata. I was taken by ambulance to Florida Hospital Altamonte. My first stop was the ER where I was wonderfully cared for by TOM SHAUGHNESSY of the Emergency Department staff. Then I was assigned a room on the third floor where the nurs- ing staff was fabulous, especially RN POLINARUBABNOVA. She was so kind and very beautiful! (I can't handle competition!!!!) One for the road Izzy has taken to flying kites, but he's not very good at it. In fact, today he's having trouble controlling his kite--it's bobbing and weaving all over the sky. His wife Sarah, observing the scene from the window, calls out to him,"Iz:y, I think it would be better if you had a piece of tail." Izzy replies, 'I told you that a while ago, but you told me to go fly a kite."
