HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL 7, 2017 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or gloriayousha@gmail.com More about BDS... I read this in a current issue of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) digest and wanted to share it with you: "The World Jewish Congress criticized a recent decision by the city council of Trondheim, the third largest city in Norway, to back a boycott of Israeli goods from West Bank settlements. In a letter to Norwegian Foreign Minister BORGE BRENDE, WJC CEO ROBERT SINGER stated the resolution was based on 'double standards' and added: 'To Jews around the world, due to what happened not so long ago in Europe, calls for a boycott of Jewish businesses resonate in a special way. In its resolution, the city (council of Trondheim) declares its opposition to Israeli policies that harm Palestinian sover- eignty and livelihood. Ironically, the boycott will.., not just punish Israelis, it will also harm the thousands of Palestinian workers employed there by Israeli companies. Moreover, it will undermine efforts to coexist and cooperate on the ground, two necessary elements for the two-state solution that is essential to ending the conflict.' Singer concluded: 'Everybody has a right to express views and voice criticism about international affairs of concern. However, in this instance.., no Other country is being made the target of such a hypocritical campaign. Trondheim wants to boycott Israeli goods, and Israeli goods alone, for political reasons. Apparently, Israel is the only country of interest to the members of the Trondheim City Council that backed this resolution.'" (That says it all. There is nothing to add.) Remembering Jewish history... Harry Houdini was born Ehrich Weiss on March 24, 1874, in Budapest, Hungary. His family emigrated to the U.S. and his father became the first rabbi in Appleton, Wisconsin. Young Ehrich's life was transformed after he learned his first trick (the vanishing quarter). At age 17, he changed his name to Harry Houdini and began performing. On October 22, 1926, while backstage, a student punched Houdini in his midsection, not realizing that he had to brace himself to avoid injury. After his next appearance, Houdini collapsed after the final curtain and was taken to the hospital where his ruptured appendix was removed. He died on October 31, Halloween. Matzah or Matzo? What's the difference?... Either way it tastes great!

I received this email from the Jewish Pavilion and pass it along: "There are many ways to share your compassion and some- times you can help from the comfort of your home. SUSAN LACKMAN has been knitting gorgeous lap blankets for our elders for several years. The blankets are delivered by Jewish Pavilion staff and volunteers to new residents in long-term-care. Recently, Susan delivered an entire bag ofg home-knit blankets in magnificent colors to the Jewish Pavilion along with toothbrushes and toothpaste. Linda Teitelbaum Sudoku (see page 18 for solution SUDOKU Harry Houdini All of the items are graciously appreciated by seniors."

One for the road... One day, Benny the psychiatrist was coming home from work on the subway when he saw an elderly gentleman talk- ing to himself and then laughing aloud. Every so often, the man would put up his hand, stop talking then start all over again. Benny had to find out more. "Excuse me, I hope you don't mind me asking, but is there anything I can do to help?" "Thank you but no. To keep me awake, I tell myself jokes when I'm travelling." "But why do you keep raising your hand?" asked Benny. "Oh, that's to stop me telling a joke I've heard before." Steven Rosenberg, M.D. Carlos M.
