Fern Park. FL 32730 'Shalom' Planned For New Community Taking its first step to wel. come a local community of mostly "out-of-towners" the Orlando Jewish community will make contact with resi- dents of the new Williamsburg development at a special Shalom Orlando on Wed.. March 19. Located approximately 3.:5 miles east of Disney World and adjacent to Sea World. Williamsburg, developed by International Community Cor- poration, is expected to be a community of some 7.000 to 7.500 homes. More than 600 homes have sold since November ] 978-- many northerners because of the heavy advertising targeted for the Hew England states. And according to a reliable source, "from the names of the buyers--if that is any measure of ethnic back- ground--between 30 and 40 percent are Jewish." If this trend continues, up to 3.000 Jewish families could be mov- ing into Williamsburg. Sources also indicated that a rabbi from Philadelphia has expressed an interest in start- ing a synagogue for the Williamsburg Jewish com- munity. ICC is providing land for various denominations to build houses of worship. All residents of Williams- burg are invited to attend the Shalom Orlando to be held at the Lime Tree Village Club at 7:30 p.m. The film "Cast a Giant Shadow," about David Marcus. an American soldier who fought in Israel's War of Independence. starring Kirk Douglas. Angle Dickinson and John Wayne, will be shown. In addition, representatives from Orlando's Jewish organiza- tions, synagogues and the Federation and its agencies will be present to welcome and inform the newcomers about the local community.

JCC Requests United Way GrantApplication by BarbaraCoenson-Roth HERITAGE Staff A letter requesting application to United Way for a grant for Orlando's Jewish Community Center's 1981 calendar year was sent out this week by JCC President Richard Appelbaum. With the unanimous approval of the Center's Board of Directors, the Orlando's JCC, only one of about five in the U.S. not receiving United Way . funds, is requesting "'grantee status in order to continue to provide a mean- ingful level of needed service within the community," the letter states, A United Way grant, accord- ing to JCC Associate Director Marvin Friedman would "help to provide service at a quality level and to increase services as the community grows. With inflation and tightening of the economy, it is difficult to main- rain the current level of service, in addition to meeting growing needs." Fdedman said that the United Way funds are "crucial" if the Center is to continue senior citizens, youth and singles programs, in addi- tion to allowing outside organ- izations to meet at the facility without charge. The grant would also help the Center provide more scholarships to families who need assistance to attend (:enter programs such as the day camp, and nursery school. The grant is "imperative," according to the letter, which states that the Center has been "struggling to provide more services with fewer dollars, while the growth of the agency and its programs and services has continued to escalate,'" Based on a list of agencies currently receiving United Way funds, Appelbaum feels Orlando's JCC "fits within" the criteria for receiving a grant. "We are a Jewish organization that provides social services to the entire community." The Center. if accepted as an applicant, will request "grantee status" for one year. If accepted, after the year, the JCC will apply for "agency status" which "aJmos't assures" receiving annual United Way funds, according to Friedman. - Inside HERITAGE...
