Piercey Studios, to clean, repair and frame the three stained glass windows that will be hanged over the entrance to Ohev Shalom's social hall just as the synagogue readies for its 85th anniversary cel- ebration. "This great gesture by Ron and Bob appropriately coincides with the kickoff of our anniversary celebration which is a tribute dinner to Ron and Mardi Shader," pointed out Burt Chasnov, synagogue president. The trib- ute dinner is Sunday, March 16, at Lake Mary Marriott Ho- tel in Sanford. Shader's family ties to Ohev City. The synagogue then was located in a storefront on west Church Street. Shader and Gamson, both longtime supporters of Jewish causes the world over, said they wanted to preserve these rem- nants of Orlando's Jewish his- tory so that people today real- ize "there was a community before many of us came here." "We are standing on the shoulders of those who came before us, yet a lot of new people know nothing about this," said Gamson. "This is why Ron and I undertook this project." Gamson recalled that many outstanding people passed through the doors of Ohev Shalom.

Standing beside Mark in his dedication to all things Jew- ish, Laura devotes time to the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando as co-chair of the cur- rent CJA campaign, current chairperson of its Women's Division and member of the executive board. She is also former vice-president and sec- retary of the Jewish Commu- nity Center of Greater Orlando, past Chapter president of Women'sAmerican ORTanda member of the President's Young Leadership Council from 1999 - 2000. In addition, she is a former chairperson of the HDS Gala and a member of the board of directors of Maitland Little League Base- ball. Members of Congregation Ohev Shalom, both Laura and Mark have been recognized for their distinct contributions by being honored with the Byron Selber Young Leadership Award in 2002 and 1998 re- spectively. They have visited Israel twice to personally ex- perience the fruits of their Is- rael Bonds investments. The Abramsons take great pride in being honored by Israel Bonds and consider it a mitzvah to help Israel every year. "There is only one Israel. The history associated with Israel is deep-rooted, not just for Jews, but Christians and Muslims alike. Therefore, it is up to us to keep our heritage alive," said Karen and Steven Selznick. "If Americans do not help, then who will give the support needed to save Israel? And if not now, during this crisis, then when?" they con- tinued. Steven and Karen Selznick are well known in the Orlando community, having lived here for 19 years and been major donors to the community. Most recently, the Selznicks dedicated the Patricia R. Selznick Middle School of the Hebrew Day School where their daughter, Dana, 16, was in the first graduating class; the school was named in memory of Steven's mother. The Selznicks share their love of Israel with Dana and Lauren, 19, their other daugh- ter, who participated in the Alexander Muss High School in Israel program in'June 2001, despite suicide bombing at- tacks prior to her departure. The Selznicks are setting the stage for a legacy of tzedakah and pride in Israel for their children and truly feel it is their generation's turn to set the stage for giving. Married 22 years, Steven and Karen have visited Israel together on a b'nai mitzvah trip and have been affiliated with Temple Israel in Orlando J since 1985.
