HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, MARCH 9, 2018 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or gloriayousha@gmail.com Our people have been there I read this in a letter from the American Jewish World Service: As this column is read, "we have just celebrated Purim, a celebratory holiday filled full of treats and costumes. Purim has deep lessons to teach us about fighting intolerance and acting on our shared values to pursue justice. Just as Queen Esther courageously stood up to the evil Haman and saved the Jewish community of ancient Persia, we too can stand up for those who face persecution today. In Burma (also known as Myanmar) the Rohingya ethnic minority is under threat of annihilation from the Burmese military. Whole villages have been destroyed, families mas- sacred, women gang-raped and infants burned alive. It's simply devastating. The Rohingya have suffered violence and discrimination for decades because of their ethnicity." (Sound familiar?) (What can we do to help? you ask. To find the answer, please either phone the AJWS in New York at 212-273-1620 or email them at . Remember, "Whoever destroys a soul, it is as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is as if he saved an entire world." Jerusalem Talmud Sanhedrin. Remembering Jewish history The following message was addressed from President Herbert Hoover to Emanuel Neumann of the Zionist Organization and was read at the organization's dinner oftheAmerican Palestine Committee in Washington, D.C on Jan. 17, 1932: President Herbert Hoover "I am interested to learn that a group of distinguished men and women is to be formed to spread knowledge and appreciation of the rehabilitation which is going forward in Palestine under Jewish auspices, and to add my expression to the sentiment among our people in favor of the realization of the age-old aspirations of the Jewish People for the restoration of their national homeland. I shall appreciate it if you will present my cordial greetings to those attending the dinner to advance this enterprise." (Yeah! Israel!)

One for the road Victor and Rivkah have always wanted a son to join their two stunningly gorgeous teenage daughters and so attempt for 'their' boy one last time. After months of trying, Rivkah gets p gnant and 9 months later delivers a healthy baby boy. Victor is at first ecstatic but as soon as he sees his son he is horrified--it's the ugliest baby he's ever seen. He turns to Rivkah and says, "This can't be my son, Rivkah. Anyone can tell this just by looking at the two beautiful daughters I've fathered. Have you been unfaithful to me?" Rivkah smiles sweetly and replies, "No, not this time.
