HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 27, 2009 Congregation Ohev Shalom Evening With the Presidents Holding the illustrated Torah is Sharon White (1), Roz Fuchs, Janise Klaiman and Sharan Schwartz. The small group of Jews who met in Harry Kanner's home in 1918 would be over- whelmed today to see that the congregation they formed, Ohev Shalom. has flourished and continues to be a corner- stone for the Orlando Jewish community. As Ohev moves closer to its centennial year, a stronger sense of history has gripped the congregation, which is about to honor all of its presidents. Sharan Schwartz. one of the event organizers, reported that relatives of some of the presidents would be coming from out of town to take part in the program. "This is a beautiful way to honor the memory of past leadership, and we are thrilled that the children and grandchildren of some of our presidents will be joining us," she said. Janise Klaiman, co-chair. added "other presidents will be remembered by local mem- bers of their family, who will be participating in honor of their memory. From genera- tion to generation is what it is all about when you get right down to it." An Evening With the Presidents will be held at Congregation Ohev Shalom on March 8. at 5:30 p.m. A tribute program will take place in the sanctuary, fol- lowed by an all-American barbecue dinner and dancing to a live band. To further honor the presi- dents, their photographs will be permanently placed in the synagogue, and a specialwork of art will be purchased from the sponsors of this event. Schwartz shared that the final decision has not been made. but the group selecting the art to honor the presidents, is leaning heavily towards pur- "chasing an illustrated Torah by Israeli artist Michal Meron. "The exciting thing about this particular selection is that it will be on display in the synagogue lobby showing, in a colorful and creative way, the weekly portion of the Torah. The artist's style is appealing to everyone and each panel is a beautiful work of art The entire community is invited to attend this special celebration.
