HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 23, 2018 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or Wow! Go figure I recently watched the open- ing ceremony of the Olympic Games in South Korea. I've seen many Olympic ceremo- nies in my long life, but this one was by far, the best! It was perfect in every way and I was especially thrilled to see team USA and, of course, team Korea, made up of both North and South Koreans marching into the stadium together and learning that they will be competing as one. I must mention that a weird thing happened as I was watching one of my deceased husband's T-shirts, kept folded in a plastic bag, slipped down to the floor from the high shelf where all the polos and T's are kept, each in plastic bags. On occasion (and because they are Yours Truly in late spouse's Korean War t-shirt. kept in slippery plastic bags) one tends to slide off the shelf and onto the floor. But this time, when I went to pick it up and put it back, it was a shirt I hadn't seen in many years. (See photo) Talk about coincidence, or was it? Anti-Semitism in the USA Following a recent series of anti-Semitic and racist incidents across the United States, the World Jewish Congress North America, issued astatement expressing deep concern and stress- ing that these attacks on Jewish and other sites are "intended to instill fear in our community and in those of other minorities." They do appreciate the response of local law enforcement in taking these incidents seriously and pursuing those who seek to harass the Jewish community. People must remain united in the face of intolerance. (If you see something, say something!) Okay, f'mally, MY COOKIES!! The Congregation Ohev Shalom Seniors will hold their next LISA KAPLAN. He is a senior at Lyman High School, an Eagle Scout and regular Shabbat Torah reader. (You'll be singing and dancing to this show and frankly amazed at how Robert and his fellow high schoolers play au- thentic Klezmer. This show is for everyone and everyone will pay the same reduced admission price of $5 per person. This includes a com- plimentary nosh (and my cookies!). For further information, contact COS Seniors co-presidents, BERNYRAFF, 407-767-6763 or JERRYLEIBMAN, 407-694-0546. (See you there BUT DON'T EAT MY COOKIES!)

Shout-Out Talk abmt perfection when it comes to serving techniques (and good-boks), kudos go to ALEX RAMBO and STEPHANIE EVANS, manbers of the wait-staff at Steak 'N Shake on Semo- ran Blvd jtst south of Aloma Avenue, Winter Park.
