The great news is that just like your body, if you stretch and exercise your brain, you can keep it fit. In fact, there are a lot of simple things one can do on a regular basis to boost brainpower. The Jewish Pavilion will be hosting a free workshop on Brain Healthy Living at Serenades by Sonata at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 10 at 425 Ronald Reagan Blvd. in Longwood. Brenda Nieman, a certified Alzheimer's dis- ease trainer, will address the group. She will discuss ways to expand the brain such as learning new dance steps, reading aloud, repositioning oneself at the dinner table and Brenda Nieman much more. Nieman will also address ways to best communicate with someone whose brain- power has diminished such as "going on the journey with the individual rather" than arguing and correcting the person's behaviors." "Brenda has taught previ- ous Jewish Pavilion work- shops, and she is dynamic and knowledgeable " says Nancy Ludin, executive director. Ludin adds "Brenda taught me how to relate to one of our residents with severe demen- tia who had lost her ability to speak. Serenades by Sonata is a lovely facility and a sponsor of the Jewish Pavilion." The workshop is open to the entire community, but an RSVP is needed so Serenades can plan for refreshments.

The overarching theme for this year is "100 Blessings: The Meaning and Practice of Jewish Prayer," and individual classes focus on different parts of Jewish liturgy. On Mondays at 7 p.m., Rabbi Sharon Barr Skolnik will teach "Halleluyah! Praise God! - The Ancient Words of Hallel and Praising God Even in Difficult Times." Rabbi Skolnik's class will take a closer look at the psalms of Hallel, uncovering modern meaning and exploring how we can praise God at those times when the very act of praise feels challenging. Rabbi David Kay will teach on Wednesdays at 7 p.m., beginning April 4. "Birkot ha- Nehanin are those legendary Jewish 'blessings for every- thing,'" Rabbi Kay explains. "But they have a profound purpose--they let us find the Rabbi Sharon Barr Skolnik sacred in everything and every moment." Rabbi Kay's class is called "Portable Holiness: Cre- ating Sacred Space (and Time) Wherever You Are." All Adult Yeshiva classes are open to the community at no charge, thanks to a grant from Arnold and Barbara Sager and the Sager Fund.
