HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, MARCH 23, 2018 PAGE 7A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or gloriayousha@gmail.com Great music. Great memories Unlike the music of today, (much of it Rap spelled with a silent C) thanks to my dear friend, TONI McDONNELL, Iwas able to watch a television show on the UCF Channel featuring the big bands and the music I appreciate. And I appreciated Toni telling me about it! I especially enjoyed seeing the legendary Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra that I eventually became the vocalist with. I repeat Great Music. Great Memories! Honors well deserved I received this news from the World Jewish Congress (WJC) and pass it along in part: "NATALIE PORTMAN, an award-winning actress, director Natalie Portman U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and social activist has been named the winner of the 2018 Genesis Prize, also referred to as the Jewish Nobel. The Genesis Prize honors individuals who serve as an inspira- tion to the next generation of Jews through their outstanding professional achievement along with their commitment to Jewish values and the Jewish people. Portman, who was born in Israel and moved to the United States as a child, has maintained a close connection to her Jewish heritage and Israeli roots." The Genesis Prize Foundation also awarded U.S. Supreme Court Justice RUTH BADER GINSBURG its first Lifetime Achievement Award, praising her 'groundbreaking legal work in the field of civil liberties and women's rights'" (Be proud. I am!) JCC 39ers Meet & Mingle Mondays On Monday, March 26th, in the senior lounge of the Roth JCC on Maitland Avenue, A video presentation of"The Jewish American" will be shown by SHELDON BROOK.

A Jewish Pavilion Mensch "Three cheers for GEANNE SHARE who serves on the board of directors for the Jew- ish Pavilion and the Orlando Ballet. She facilitated two partnerships that enable stu- Geanne Share dents from the Orlando Ballet Company and school, to perform for seniors as part of the Jewish Pavilion Purim celebration. Performances took place at the Mayflower and Westminster in Winter Park. The residents absolutely loved the ballet dancers and immensely enjoyed the Purim play as Well. Both celebrations ended with the distribution of Hamantashen and other snacks. Geanne is very active in the community as a volunteer and philanthropist and both organizations are so fortunate to have her leadership." (What joy she brought to the residents!)

A Shout-Out MARY JOHNSON, (a Brooklyn gal like me!) is a waitress at Too Jay's Restaurant in Altamonte Springs. Not only is she ef- ficient, she is an absolute LOVE! She made me and my friends smile and feel so welcome. Thanks, Mary! (And NO calories, right?) One for the road Moshe is always telling jokes and thinks he could make a great stand-up comedian. So when one of his friends suggests he do a try out, Moshe volunteers to en- tertain patients in one of the wards at a nearby hospital. Moshe starts by telling the patients some jokes and finishes by singing some funny songs. Just before he leaves, he says to the patients, "I hope you all get better." One elderly male replies, "I hope you get better, too." By Yaakov Lappin Defense Forces, saiditwas the two years to plan.
